      I'm sure he meant what he said. He remembers how the democratic party used to be. Thats why he appeals to the youth. Maybe all youth are hippies. Then they realize the error of their ways: once reality hits and they have to survive in the real world. Most boomers who used to be liberal hippies are are now conservatives, I would guess. Especially the breadwinner ones.

      I know it seems foreign to you, being from a tribe that supports their leader no matter how corrupt or incompetent, but Democrats actually don't agree on everything and often criticize each other.

      Paul and Mitch ought to try it sometime, given the unpopularity of their leadership.

          I'm glad you see the humor in the cowardly GOP looking the other way while Trump shreds our institutions and profits from being President while cravenly lying to his gullible base. At least you get something out of your vote.

            I would say that we all got the same thing out of our vote we always have. It seems incredibly naive to think otherwise.

              I can only hope your view that this presidency is "the same thing we always have" is not shared by many other voters or we could  end up with an even more moronic, sleazy, money grubbing  celebrity next time.

              If one exists. I'm not sure.

                I wasn't able to respond earlier since I've been engulfed in laughter until now.

                Moronic, sleazy and money grubbing. Politics,as usual. Unlike some, I don't turn a blind eye when someone attempts to tickle my ear.

                  Ted Nugent for Prez!  Kid Rock for VP!

                  Politics as usual for the Trump voter.  Their standards demand only the finest. 

                  The Republican base hates celebrities blabbing about politics!  Until they slap an (R) beside their name and run for office.  Then they elect them!

                  America!  F** Yeah!

                    Funny how jaded we each appear, in our unique ways.

                    I hope for a kinder and gentler nation. Where civility trumps selfishness and ignorance. Where insults aren't the first resort when we encounter those we disagree with. If we find a window of opportunity, I wonder if those such as yourself can garner the intestinal fortitude to help forge a new dialogue; standing in stark contrast to the current culture of regurgitating insults and simply posting ignorant posters in an attempt to create an argument about something inane...that the person they are speaking to has never given them reason to start.

    … will the big guy and the little guy ever be on the same page?

    No. So what hope do we have ... ever?

    Time to break out the religious /spiritual forums again.

    But then:

    … will the religionist and the spiritualist ever be on the same page?

    No. So what ...

    I predict there will be a new world order religion and a one world government.
    Luckily, I won't be around when that happens. I'll be in heaven where there is (truly) no duality whatsoever. smile

      Or , we can assume  that it's all just trends , in religion ,cultures , fads ,  politics, ideologies , new world orders,  old world orders , kind of like global warming -cooling . What is something new but simply a return to something old again Kathryn ?

        Yes. This all happened in Italy, in history. The rich and the powerful always ruin it for everybody.
        Greed.

    We were hoping Trump would be able to activate the economy and get it percolating again, but not at the expense of the environment.
    This is a troubling article.

      But don't you suppose Kathryn ,that a lot of this environmental "setback" is just reversing the overzealous Obama gains in the issues of the enviro especially in that Obama's people were working towards the extremes ie. Kyoto ?agreements etc....?

      Horse, surely you can see, even if you can't admit it, that Obama epitomized class and dignity as President while our current oval office occupant epitomizes churlishness and indecency.

      The concept of courtesy and civility is over the heads of some. I laugh at comments about Obama being decent and civil, as if his good manners is supposed to gloss over everything being said by a person who can recognize his courtesy, but not the ridiculousness of their attempt to use it as justification for being otherwise.
