FlatCityGirl By the time this holiday rolls around, we’ll either have a Criminal Communist ready to move into the White House and bring her Horndog husband as well as the likes of Sid Blumenthal and the rest of the criminal ilk with her, or we’ll have –at the risk of offending the Trump supporters, a loud-mouthed bully with no impulse control [I’m being nice].
The old saw about the devil you know as opposed to the devil you don’t know is operational in reverse in this instance.
We’re way too familiar with Hillary. Twenty-five years of familiarity with Hillary and Bimbo Eruptions and Blue Dresses, and Cattle Futures and Whitewater, and Rose Law Firm and Billing Records, and FBI Files and Bill’s Definition of Is.
With Trump, I’m not optimistic, but he’s the only choice we have. We’re on a sure slide to destruction and the best we can hope for is that Trump can slow things down. I don’t hold out much hope.

FlatCityGirl I found this on my son's Facebook page and laughed out loud.
If someone finds it offensive, please say so and I'll take it down.

Papasparky Rudy Giuliani endorsed James Comey as a "straight arrow" on several TV talk shows when this controversy was gaining traction -- wonder if he now wishes he had included a caveat emptor disclaimer at the end of his reassuring statement?

GO3 More to the point, what made Comey deviate from lawful procedure given Giuliani's long and positive experience with the guy?

Safetydude Here's your explanation; he was appointed by Obama and he works for the DOJ, run by another Obama appointee, ergo: he works for Obama, not the people.
FlatCityGirl I don’t know whether this belongs in Politics or Jokes, but it’s a true political story, and funny.
I have voted for one Democrat in my lifetime: Doug Wilder when he ran for and was elected Governor of Virginia. I probably would not have voted for him under other circumstances, but it so happened that I worked for an attorney in Richmond at that time who was great friends with Doug and I got to know him slightly. He was a good man at that time, not focused on blaming Whites for every ill since Eve ate the Apple. He has changed since. The last time I heard him speak, he was like so many of the old time Black leaders who at one time subscribed to judging people for their Character, not their Color.
Anyway. The year Doug was elected Governor as a Democrat, Virginia elected an Attorney General, Mary Sue Terry, who was a Republican, and a Lesbian, and the word was, Doug and Mary Sue really hated one another. The animus didn’t have anything to do with her being a Lesbian, it was all politics, and they were real enemies.
At that time, there was rumor going around [and I’ve always believed it to be true], that Doug was having an affair with a White Woman, Patricia Klugie, who was at that time, married to an old, old man named John Klugie, who was a billionaire; the Klugie estate was in Albemarle County [Charlottesville area].
Word was, Doug Wilder could be seen boarding the State helicopter early in the evening, two or three nights every week, and being flown up to the Klugie Estate; arriving back at the Governor’s Mansion in the wee hours.
The joke that went around Capitol Hill was: Question: What do Doug Wilder and Mary Sue Terry have in common? Answer: They are both sleeping with White Women.

MeiDei Do you think we'd be better served by Congress if they only operated in session for 6 months a year? March/April/May and Sept/Oct/Nov. (as an example - no going home w/ends unless family emergency - no Executive appointments when not in session ) and went home to their regular lives & occupations to live under the laws they made. Think of the savings in travel, entertainment, heat, electricity, etc. What to do about their DC office staff - what do they do in Texas when not in session? Just a day-dreaming thought. : )

FlatCityGirl I think what you propose is the way it should work. I don't see any hope of changing the status quo. The Elected, "D"s and "R", know they can retain their power by handing out Free Stuff, and they need all twelve months to keep that going.
