@Grove - There's no hope of slowing them down on the hyperbole. They're in the middle of an orgasm of hate. While carrying signs that say 'Love' on them.

Re: “Dark Ages Coming?

Trump's cut out the middlemen. Like Cohen, and HRC, and the MSM.
No wonder they're pissed.

Re: “Dark Ages Coming?

Grove, the threat has been from Trump and a large portion of the majority party. In the intervening two years before the mid terms, people are faced with the loss of health care whether ACA or Planned Parenthood. The radical right Trump has surrounded himself with are poised to gut Social Security. These are disastrous situations that will wreak havoc during the next two years and beyond. This isn't like the Republican hissy fits about birth locales, misconceptions of what socialism is or that police are going to take time out from shooting innocent black folk to seize the guns of nice white folk.
Waiting for shit to hit the fan guarantees shit hitting the fan.

Re: “Dark Ages Coming?

The overreaction by both sides is bad for the people of this country.

I thought Republican reactions to Obama's two terms were bad, but I swear I think the left and the left leaning media are taking this Trump thing to a level beyond what even the conservatives did with Obama.

I still hear conservative friends talk about Obama as the chief socialist and complain about how he ruined America, or how he was the worst President ever.

Now, you've got the left consistently comparing Trump to Hitler, and suggesting he's essentially taking over as dictator. That, or we are entering the Dark Ages as Cohen says.

Bottom line, for both sides, is that the President isn't THAT powerful in our system. However, our politicians and our media insist on fanning the flames to make sure that our country becomes more and more divided with each passing year. It's sad to watch really. If you're left leaning, or anti-Trump, all you have to do is go out and vote in the midterms, and you can effectively neuter him for the second half of his 4 year term. It's not going to be that bad. The over-exaggerations need to stop.

Re: “Dark Ages Coming?

Cohen is the dark age. But he likes to look busy, thus creating the illusion that he is actually doing something.... and he is; just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

BTW, have you tried to UNSUBSCRIBE from his email blather....IMPOSSIBLE.

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

@Crack

And rightfully so. I have a lot of sympathy for Ms Sulaiman. There is nothing worse than spell casting. I am frankly suprised that Steve Cohen has not already proposed a ban on spell-casting, or at least called for a federal investigation of spell casters, or maybe a Constitutional Convention so we can have a constitutional ban on the practice.

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

Yeah...like a link that starts with "www.fox.news.com/opinion" is going to contain any eye-opening truth about the Obama presidency. You're going to try a whole lot harder than that ALJ2. But, nice try, JA....

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

And not only that, they are blocking ALJ2's ability to provide links to crucial sites!!

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

And some think Trump is bad - we've just had eight years of lies, hypocrisy and an unprecedented erosion of freedom under a President who couldn't lead and governed by unconstitutional Executive decree. Here's just one more example mostly ignored by his sycophants in the "media":

Re: “Key Political Moves Underway in Memphis and Nashville (UPDATED)

Elections are not the same thing as campaigning. Reading comprehension.

Elections take a day. The problem with 'this perpetual campaigning business', is that it is big business. The longer the campaigns run, the more money they take. And the money involved to run them corrupts our political system.

Here's a NY Times article on how Britain deals with that issue:

Re: “Cohen Won't Attend Trump Inauguration

#@&^*Oak: why can't you just be satisfied posting your nihilistic, anti-establishmentarian, pro-
Trumpian drivel as your alter ego on the CA's comment forum?

P.S, Your use of the @ to address commenters here makes me wonder whether you're aware that this isn't Twitter. That's OK, though; your idol probably wouldn't realize it either.

Re: “Key Political Moves Underway in Memphis and Nashville (UPDATED)

The ink from the ballots for our last election cycle isn't even dry yet, and already we are starting the next race. This perpetual campaigning business is getting out of hand. It's killing our democracy.
