    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Lets make no mistake our immigration laws have been a mess due to Cheap Labor Conservatives. Big and small businesses have long wanted to bust unions and get dirt cheap labor. Ever wonder why Reagan granted amnesty in 1986? Hmmmmmm The GOP along with their business friends sought to break unions and did just that. Immigrants were lured over here by business. They didn't count on them voting Dem down the line. Cubans have long been able to just step foot in the USA and are accepted with open arms. Why? They vote Republican (for the most part). Those coming from Mexico and Central America don't. And there is why this is such an issue. You would NOT see such an uproar by pearl clutching conservatives over immigration is they were A) White or B) their offspring voted Republican.

    The longer Mueller investigates the worse it will be on our pretendadent. The longer he goes, the more shit he is likely to find. He's got all of Cohen's stuff. That just happened. Can you imagine the shit he could get in the future? I want this to be thorough. He is taking his time, leaving no stone unturned.

    THIS needs to happen more often. Bravo to Steve! His tweets were blistering to the GOP. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/steve-schmidt-renounces-gop_us_5b2a4ce8e4b05d6c16c96a05

    Aren't we all? Fingers crossed the left doesn't once again fracture if we don't get the perfect candidate next time. I don't see anyone on the horizon who will make everyone on the left happy. The left needs to follow the right- fall in line! The stakes are high as we now see. Why does the left never learn( 2000, 2016)?

    They're sadly mistaken if they think that. His policies are already very anti-gay, he put in place a very anti-gay SC justice. If Anthony Kennedy retires or dies (please no) who was the one conservative justice siding with the four liberals who allowed gay marriage and is replaced by Trump, then all bets are off. His lower court judges, of which he is getting a ton in place, are going to wreak havoc on all rights. I've been active demonstrating, calling, and donating forever. I interned for Congressman Gene Green in college. I volunteer for many Dem candidates. It's exhausting but needs to be done.

    A plurality see it but 40% are completely ok with this. They either don't believe it or are in total support. Many have just tuned out. They chose their man and look the other way now. There is SO MUCH cynicism in America right now. The Republicans have spent decades demonizing government at all levels. That 40% just have no faith in our institutions because of this. Even many on the left have become cynics. It's why I found Bernie's talk of a rigged system so dangerous. It caused so many on the left to become cynical as well. Add the Russian interference and it was a perfect shit storm. A good 10% are holding on to a little faith in our institutions. Propaganda and conspiracy theories have formed a malignancy and it is spreading. I I feel like I'm watching the slow death of America. We're an oligarchy now. The rich would never allow a FDR type to come to power and enact something like the New Deal now. They SCREAM and CRY over their taxes still. Billionaires crying about paying a pittance STILL and so many middle class carry their water for them. They are in control and as long as our Pretendadent keeps the economy humming, they will allow this. I hope I'm wrong.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    You nailed it! I've never quite seen anything like this in this country. A friend, who is a teacher and has been out for a long time, was suddenly let go from his job (in a non-union state of course). The teachers at his school voted 90% for Trump. He told his friend that after Trump, these nice, friendly teachers just turned on him like they had cover now. Before, he had a leadership position, had glowing reviews every year. I've seen the deplorables (Hillary NAILED this) become so emboldened. Ironic most of these people are DEVOUT Christians yet they are ok with this because, well, they see his actions are strength. Never mind they wouldnt't give A FUCK if these immigrants were WHITE coming from Norway. I don't see an end in sight, either. Independents are turned off completely BUT the economy is doing great ( Thank you, President Obama!). That will keep enough of them either voting for him or not voting at all. Though, isn't it AMAZING how the 2016 election was about how AWFUL the white working class was doing and that is why he was elected? Suddenly, without one piece of legislation passing, he is sworn in and you NEVER heard about their struggles again. Like magic, a white man is sworn in and suddenly they good! They didn't pass one piece of legislation until a full year into his first term and the economy was doing just as good as Obama's last year or two.

    The vast majority of the GOP says nothing about his racism and vulgarity because they have long felt the exact same way tRump does. Sadly, the USA is an oligarchy and those rich assholes will never allow the Dems to do much. Money runs campaigns now and the oligarchs will crush the Dems if they feel threatened.

    This whole administration is revolting, toxic and evil. The damage done will be long lasting. The Dems could put up the perfect candidate but the fix is in. He is showbiz and know how entertain which is what the people, and the media, want. The media, regardless of how "liberal" idiots think they are, want a Trump second term. A virulent drain of Right wing extremism is taking over the world mostly over immigration/migration. The left needs to figure this issue out or it is lights out for the left for many years.

    Trump's foreign policy team said the Trump doctrine is "We have no friends or enemies" and, get this, "Permanent destabilization creates American advantage". Yes, you read that right. Then THIS one- "We're America, BITCH". Holy SHIT. You CANNOT make this up. The batshit is real. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2018/06/12/what-the-trump-doctrine-reveals-about-trumps-foreign-policy/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.3281cdacfbdd

    Geez, anything to scare the people. Most people are freaking dumb as a box as rocks if they believe this shit or that a fucking WALL will stop it.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Trump is slowly tearing apart our relationship with our allies, cozying up to Putin and Russia, cozying up to Kim Jong Un. There is so much crazy shit going on with his administration from the Russian shit, the tax cut shit, the tariff shit, the crazy shit his cabinet is doing, his insane, juvenile tweets, his total lack of vocabulary, his constant hyperbole, his shameful nonstop LIES, it is just hard to wrap your head around because it is CONSTANT! So much so, people here tune it out. It APPEARS the media is against him because there is literally nonstop crazy shit to report but his supporters just see it as the tired old "liberal media" jargon. Suicide rates are up and I wonder if some of it isn't tied to the fact facts don't matter anymore and corporations have just raped our country of a middle class. I know so many people who are just bullied at work by bosses because there are no employee protections anymore. The Republicans BLATANTLY do things to help the very rich and connected yet SELL it like they're doing the middle class. The Democrats haven't found the right formula to fight this but if they do big money POURS in from billionaires and corporations and they end up demolished.
  16. With accepting migrants, it is stirring intense far-right reactions fueled by citizens fears, just or unjust. This will only make the situation for migrants worse. I don't know the solution. It is a sad situation all around. I don't want to see more EU countries fall to far-right govts. The damage done could be enormous. I fear the dissolution of democracies to fascism which is always the tendency to far-right govts. It's like the 1930's all over again.
  17. I am just blown away at the govt Italy has now. WTF is wrong with Italy? (same can be said for the USA and others). We are getting these far-right govts due to immigration. We need to find a solution to take this off the table. People are losing their minds over it. I'm not sure, though, why these migrants, many of them muslim, wouldn't want to find refuge in another muslim country? They face hostility and intense hate in many Western countries.

    New Album Means New Tour

    Nothing at all. It is impressive she has toured to such success without doing a GH tour........but with diminishing returns. If she is happy with that, then who am I to care. I suspect she wants to be on top in the end. I just don't get why so many of her fans loathe the idea of a proper GH tour with original arrangements. It would be fun after all this time. And it would endear her to so many casual fans. If she decides it isn't something she wants or cares about, great.

    He just doesn't care about his love for Russia and Putin being blatant. His supporters just don't care either. He picked the right party for his shenanigans. The Dems aren't perfect but he could never get away with all of this if he were a Democrat. The GOP's moral center has collapsed into nothing. He loathes Europe and loves Russia. He is trying to realign us with Russia it appears.

    I saw her at stadium gigs in Houston twice and loved it! Though I have been front and center since CT and can't go back to where the peasants sit 🙂

    New Album Means New Tour

    If she is to do a tour with a lot of new material, then she needs to do a limited smaller venue tour. Demand is not there for larger venues in most markets with a lot of new material. THEN, with Taylor and Elton likely to challenge or pass SST numbers, she should come back with a full on GH tour with songs close to the original compositions and freaking demolish the touring record once and for all.

    Shit is about to hit the fan according to those in the know (from watching CNN and MSNBC analysts). His team is flailing because they know shit is about to go down. Experts say Mueller may be about to make his move with the Manafort situation overnight and Trump's lawyers' files getting the green light and not protected under attorney/client privilege. Most of the experts say, from all indications, the end game will be starting in and around June 15th. This is why we are hearing all this shit about pardons and such. I hope this shit stain on the USA goes down and all the Republicans with him. They are all fuck ass deep in this Russian mess. They all knew. They wanted that Supreme Court seat and these judge vacancies filled up with far right nuts bad enough to collude (or allow) the Russians to attack us. I've heard (from a friend in politics) that we may end up with Orrin Hatch as President soon. Trump, Pence and Ryan are all complicit in this Russian mess and will go down. Hatch is next in line.
  23. I was within a few feet of her night 1 for MDNA in Houston and front row stage night 2, floor about 9 seats from catwalk RHT Chicago. She pointed the gun at me and winked night 1 and touched my hand night 2 (MDNA). VERY tiny. Her skin was flawless. Only "flaw" was a noticeable vein on her temple. She is gorgeous in person. She is very fit but her muscles do not look anything bulky like some pics make them out to be. Just very very fit. Like I said, she is tiny and her muscles match her body.

    Is MDNA tour her best ever?

    For me the tour is special because Night 1 she pointed a gun right at me and winked. Night 2 she touched my hand. Front row in the golden triangle both nights. The opening is one of her best. But the song choice was shit. It did have great renditions of LAP, V, EY, LS. She looked FANTASTIC! And those late starts were bad for business. She needs to do a GH tour just to give casuals what they want and to put her back in their good graces. I think her legacy is suffering atm.
