Trump is the Government for the next 8 years. They need to get used to it.

I've never seen so many Americans beg for tyranny. Truly scary stuff.

Seen the news in Poland today? They may lose their courts.

Watch closely.

Firing Mueller puts us in a true constitutional crisis.

I think there would be an attempt to bring D.C. to a grinding halt by sheer citizen presence: aka protest.

Lesson learned: Never again will I be a tenant, these assholes scarred me for life. Doing this without kids would have been tough but with kids made this a real PITA.

Humans don't take well to having their caves forcibly moved on them.

I second the "buy" if you've got kids thing. When they are really young, not a very big deal. Soon as they are school age, you don't want to be messing with that. Destabilizing enough for an adult. Go put down some roots somewhere. Buying into a location, a community, it's something very very different than being a renter.

I don't think there's any way to fix this. We have the ability but not the collective will. On a species level, self-interest is going to trump collective interest and we'll cook the planet as a result.

Fermi Paradox in action: "It is the nature of intelligent life to destroy itself."

She speaks a bit of English, but actually not enough to feel very confidant conversationally, as I understand it. It is really fun to think she was likely not very forthcoming though, in attempting to talk with him. :)

The seating chart is a really interesting thing though: her next to Trump and Melania next to Putin. Amazing.

Only place left for the Trumpets may be Breitbart soon. Hehe.

LOL ... someone dislikes Fox news?! Enough to dislike these posts? Me too mate. Me too!

Oh, also now have a big Fox news fan liking things. Gosh the country is really split. ;)

Reports from hill about lunch meeting with the Senate and Trump was very grim. It's a full on bloodsport now. Sources claiming Trump threatened to finance opposition candidates in districts for Senators who are "No".

Next week is going to be something else. Jared and Jr in front of investigative committees. Whatever happens here with healthcare.

In the background, more Russia Russia Russia is also percolating.

This ancient dweller in the blood never ceases to amaze.

Those reports of plagues being released by the perma frost melting in Siberia have been fascinating too. For our sake, I hope humans don't come into any more contact with super primitive diseases. As we tread over parts of the Earth we haven't been, or as parts of the Earth become re-exposed to potential human contact, things tend to not go very well for us in the infectious diseases department.

I'm sure the Trump administration will "win" if there was a flare up too. (gulp) They would be very willing to look at what Obama did, a massive success for the West African ebola response, and learn from that right? I mean, they wouldn't use a crisis of that type to stoke xenophobic fear and nationalism right?

Major losing by the administration, but wow, the damage being done too. Very bad for the country.

Proof by repeated assertion.

Just google "right wing violence" and read the news section. Page after page after page.

The right believe that tyranny must be kept at bay with a gun. The left believes balance of powers, freedom of speech, civil rights, and ... awwww ... gimme a hug ....

... do that.

You can be disturbed by the rise of left wing violence in the US, as am I. But to pretend the lion's share of violence hasn't always been, and likely will always be, from the right is just disingenuous.

Go to an all-cash payment system ...

You mean you must hand over physical dollar bills to pay for medical care? Or you mean all payments must be made by the patient themselves?

Rich people vote for Democrats. Its a point thats been hammered home here at Pat.net repeatedly.

LOL, so your initial question was a false assumption?

Got news for you if you think Pnet is a good source of authority ... you are wrong and wrong again.

It was far less of a defining factor this go around, and had more to do with race and education, but GOP still has a MEGA wealthy business lean.

Bashing Trump all day isn't what I'd call "Reporting". Media is serving as a tool to divide our country, instead of helping us solve our collective issues.

Trump would be wise to not give something to bash.

You showing remorse at the level of divisiveness? Really?

Think you can get the President to show that? Think you can get him to act as a unifying force now? It's well beyond that. He must go if we are to heal. This rift is too large.

New leadership needed, for the good of the country. Bring in Mama Pence.

Oh shoot, can't help it, I will ask one: How do you feel about brining in Secret Service as an excuse for the Russia meeting being 'vetted'?

Personally, I think it is probably one of the most desperate and low things I've seen a representative of the President ever do. The lying is outrageous, but this is just shameful. Agree/disagree ... in your expert opinion of course?

Sucks to have to bare the burden of having so much hate align with current conservative leanings doesn't it? You guys should really speak out against that.

You can post something about Lincoln being a Republican if it will make you feel better.

Will not ask you any further questions. You could simply be a city rent a cop. No increased credibility or expertise of opinion there.
