Can I say how much I hate the rude, stupid, arrogant SOB that we have for a president? What a disaster he is!

Have my invention – the Shamrock! Bottle of yellow beer into a glass. Add 1 measure VOK Curacao. Becomes bright green, white foam head, tastes like lemonade and has a kick like a mule!

gelln – The only upside is that those who tentatviely voted for Trump are going to be stampeding back to Dems in 2018 and 2020.
AdLib 2 hours ago
PPO – I am going to try that!
AdLib 2 hours ago
glen, that is!

Ad, ;the trouble with that is we have to put up with the prick for another 4 years.

Proven liars again, but my rant this week is although he’s been proven to be a liar over and over again, he suffers no consequences for his abhorrent, incessant lying. Here’s hoping you’re right, Ad, and in the long run, he will be brought down. I don’t see it happening any time soon, though.

PPO – If Dems can take back The House or The Senate in 2018, he will be defanged.

I was tending bar in a club one night years ago on St. Pats night and some wiseguy complained there was no green beer. So I concocted this and it went down well – too well!!!

All of this is short term thinking for Trump, he tries to be slippery and get out of the terrible spotlight he keeps putting on himself but as this adds up over many months, he will drown beneath it all and be abandoned.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Why only 2 years? Because of midterms? Do you think Dems will be able to take the House or Senate? After all, trump is actually doing what he said he would….or trying to, anyway. Besides the lying, which his base doesn’t seem to mind, and the bragging, which his base eats up, what do Dems have to run on?

ad, looks as if the GOP rats are jumping already. Budget and Trumpcare DOA

And, Ad, what do you think will happen with trumpcare, and trump’s budget? I realize that’s actually two questions, but do you think repubs will manage to repeal Obamacare?
glenn

PPO–I’m still not sure either the budget or trumpcare are DOA. After all, we have a republican government, and they will fall in line, just like they did when trump was nominated.

glenn – Remember, a majority voted against Trump and he only won by about 20k votes in the swing states that handed him the win. In off year elections, the party out of power typically is most energized and wins back many seats in Congress. With how horrible Trump is and the Trumpcare and budget, not to mention Russia, there will be so much energy to elect Dems.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Or, I should say, I’m pretty sure they will fall in line. It would my heart good to see trump thwarted at every turn until his damn head explodes, but after all of their bluster, repubs will fall in line, I believe.
glenn

PPO – Yes, the Repubs are the party of NO! When they’re in power, it makes it even more powerful in stopping themselves.
AdLib an hour ago
And, remember, if you believe something, then it’s a fact. That’s what I learned from our so-called president.

Well, Ad, I’m going to do my part to put a Dem in Price’s seat. That’s my congressional district, so whichever Dem gets the nom, he/she will get my vote!

Haven’t done the full monte on what went on with “president’ and Angela, but it seems frosty to say the least

glenn – It’s possible Repubs could pass Trumpcare and if they do, the backlash from 14 million people losing their healthcare before the 2018 election will bury them and start the march into 2020 in Dems taking power back and killing Trumpcare to pass Medicare for All. If it fails, they fail and are stained by it. If somehow it passes, which is unlikely in The Senate, they will ultimately fail. This is a lose-lose proposition for Repubs.

Ad–My real hope is that they keep fighting amongst themselves until the midterms; therefore get no big legislation passed. They have already been busier than they were in the eight years under PBO, and have passed some odious bills, including, of course, the TPP.

sorry guys n gals, your fall back time change puts Vox in the busy time here. I’ll pop in and out. Sorry

glenn – I would say that the budget is DOA. It would need 60 votes in The Senate because it’s not budget neutral, it will continue to increase the defecit. Also, 60 votes would be needed to allow the massive increase in defense spending, there’s a limit on that and domestic spending and Dems ain’t agreeing to raising Defense and slashing domestic.
