The thing about midterms is it's not about the President. It's not about who likes Trump--it's about the legislative branch. If they continue along the course they're going, there will be a lot of people not happy with them for telling them to fuck off.

A lot of those who are going to be disadvantaged by the plans the GOP majority has put forward are the very same people who voted for Trump because they got duped. So they can believe whatever they want about Trump, but all it takes is to see Congress betraying them and they might vote differently in the midterms.

We'll see, I guess. With any luck midterms will get Congress out of crazy-land and the remaining two years of Trump's presidency will go a little more smoothly.

at best if the legislative branches becomes sane again then it will curtail the lunatic's ideas and hopefully he learns something on how to govern a country.

It was recently brought to my attention that xiao some of the members on IDW are still uninformed as to how the US Government works.

So being the efficient handy dandy Captain Obvious I am, I decided to give a nutshell explanation followed by a video presentation of the system we the people, call Checks and Balances:

・ The Executive Branch - They pass laws & direct the Judicial branch.
・ The Legislative Branch - They make laws & star in C-SPAN.
・ The Judicial Branch - They're the cops & judges that carry out the Laws.
・ Press Secretary - Sweats bullets when reporters ask him Questions (sometimes hides in the bushes) fear2.gif

The power is always in the People's hands; and now that we know how the US Government works. This is how a Law gets passed into existence! sweatingbullets.gif

I'm not sure what spurred that post to be generated (well, no, actually, I can guess), but I will point out that 'checks and balances' only really works if the branches are not colluding with one another and/or filled with a bunch of corrupt assholes.

Unfortunately, the present administration is basically exactly that. With luck, 2018 will correct that.

xiao's not as smart as we think... laugh.gif I was re-thinking my stance on politics today when I was defending my view on an Anarchist society while having a picnic with my little cousin in the mall's promenade.

When I finished throwing my mumbo jumbo at a smart little 13 y/o's face... she simply replied: "xiao do you know how Checks & Balances works?" ohmy.gif

It had been approximately 18 years since I took Government in High School so naturally I lied & said YES! Now excuse me while I go to the car & go charge my non-existing flight drone...

The remainder resulted in my post above, and letting go of my tightly clenched belief in Anarchy, in favour of a more idealist concept of democracy. Or at least a Monarchy, cause even an ideal Anarchist country has more holes than a slice of Swiss Cheese ~ nice but not realistically viable! laugh.gif

do any of you remember hearing about the annoying orange show? i know people are calling trump orange as an insult or something to that affect. it just occurred to me to look up put the 2 together and got this vid from YT

in other news, he's still in deep shit but its likely more evidence that is needed to give him the boot. im not sure what his effect would be if he does have the cahones to testify and maybe tell the truth about it. its gonna be very adversarial testimony if he does testify. we'll see how this train wreck fares with the aftermath of the Comey testimony.
