Other than upholding freedom of religion and promoting social justice through organizations like the YMCA and Salvation Army, the government has no business getting involved with religion

Another example of how children are not born hating others. They learn it from idiot parents. Those idiot parents should not be allowed to run for any government office.

The latest Republican attempt to go after Blue States. Unfortunately for them, it hurts red states to.

This could be a case of the both factions eating each other up.

FIRST THERE WERE NO BUSY DEALINGS WITH RUSSIA. THEN THERE WAS NO COLLUSION. NOW COLLUSION IS NOT A CRIME. NEXT WEEK IT WILL BE WE DID NOT MEAN IT AND THEN THE WEEK AFTER THAT IT WILL BE SO WHAT.

Interesting article courtesy of VOX on how not all the rich think the Republican trickle down economics is good for our country. They realize that trickle up and reducing inequality is key to long term prosperity.

No Centrists are not out of ideas. While their ideas are not as large and profound as the Sanders wing, they are sensible, pragmatic, will help people, and move the country forward. More to follow later.

What the KKK endorsed candidate and popular vote losers team fails to realize is that their base will never make than 46 percent of the vote and you can be sure Democrats are not going to take Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan for granted again; Florida will be in play, and Georgia, Arizona, and North Carolina are getting purpler and purpler.

Putin's Party

Most people in the KKK endorsed candidate and popular vote losers world think it is no big deal if he colluded with the Russians. Ronald Reagan Junior in an article with Yahoo said today's Republican Party would prefer Putin as President to any Democrat. If the Republican base would truly prefer a person who is a fascist, murderer, and puppetmaster who authorizes cyber attacks on democracies like us and Britain, then this serves another example of how the Party of Lincoln is dead.

Trump's Economy?

Just saw Larry Kudlow on CNN singing the praises of the Trump Economy. To Jake Tappers credit, he did point out in that interview and in one with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu that this recovery and jobs numbers all are a continuation of trends that started with the Obama Administration and trade negogiaitions with the Europeans are concluding with agreements that Obama basically reached and Trump initially discarded. The Art of the Deal my tukas.

What about the Nazi's?

I would not be too concerned about the Democratic Socialists running on the Democratic side. For all their issues, they are for health care and college for all as well as inclusion. I would be more concerned with the self-proclaimed Nazi's and White Supremacists running as mainstream Republicans putting the last nails in the coffin of the Party of Lincoln.
