Thom Hartmann: Republicans are systematically destroying democracy -- and replacing it with strongman authoritarianism

Damn, gonna have to wait a bit longer for that 18th Championship Pennant

Oh well, back to it then.
Love the natural beauty of the West Virginia Miranda. Strongly dislike the ignorance and Magat-like faith of Trump and the GOP of it's population. Divorce and child custody were strongly involved in the decision to move here, and in any decision to remain.
Already (80%) decided to leave in 6 years when I retire. So 6 more years and then I'm likely out, and on to equally beautiful surroundings (from a physical standpoint) and much more beautiful surroundings (from a people perspective).
I think Miranda7 is actually Ann Coulter.
Argues just like her. Lots of blather without a current understanding of the facts.
Hardly any of the govt is still on the old GS pay scale anymore. Most of the 'old bloat' has long ago been replaced by a stripped down leaner version of government. Our own office moved to Paybanding like 15 years ago. There are no govt employees that I know of where I work that are sitting around twiddling their thumbs. Also, much of the 'govt work' has been contracted out to pruvate industry. Indeed, only jobs deemed 'inherently governmental' are still sacrosanct from outsourcing. Your whole 'concept of govt work culture' is 15-20 years out of date...
From Waffles above...
"Ohhh no's people will have to get off their butts and either get educated or go to work for 20 hours a week instead of couch surfing?!?! Those evil evil Republicans!!"
Well, West Virginia where I currently reside, is like 70% Republican, and like 92% white, and it is one of the largest welfare and foodstamp states in the union...
So you do the math...
(hint, hint...its largely white republicans sitting at home on wellfare and food stamps in this state).
What a disgustingly cowardly thing
to do to children because the adults
in the state have abdicated their
authority to the NRA.
He should have told the GOP to stuff it, and used the 14th Amendment. But this deal is so typical of the dysfunction in our current divided government.
The GOP ransoming everyone's future but the rich, and then insisting on more tax cuts for the wealthy. Sits wrong, but with Biden throwing out the possibility of using the 14th, there really was no other game in town to avert disaster.
Once again the GOP's outsized influence gives the nation a deal that nobody but the wealthy will like.
Pay attention non-rich GOP, and see whom your party defends, and whom it hurts...
They should, but they wont. The GOP
has to do the bidding of their corporate
masters and take more from the poor and
the middle class, in their efforts to
make America a living hell. Which is
ultimately stupid, for the kids aren't dumb,
and will likely flee Dumbmerica over the
next couple of decades, for more friendly
work environments, like Europe, Canada, and elsewhere...
Face it Waffles, the only reason the GOP is still relevent in several southern states is how much you've cheated through gerrymandering, and rigging polling places, and squashing the minority vote. Eventually, it will become too much to hold back and manage, and some of those states will start to turn blue.
I mean the left always goes on and on about how great their states are. You guys should be creating funds to help your votes move there.

Nah! We prefer to slowly turn southern states 1st to purple, and then blue over time, like VA, GA, and TX.
I'm sure you'd love us to leave so you can revel in you momentary ignorance, but we will stick around, fight the good fight, and pray that we influence enough of your children and grandchildren to change.
Well at least our resident fascist supporter Claudio
got the 'Putin is crazy' part right... The rest is
wrong, as usual, but Putin IS crazy.
last I checked, the scoreboard in Ukraine reads something
Russia, over 200k dead and wounded for controlling only 17%
of Ukraine, and that percentage is sure to go down as Ukraine
begins its Spring Offensive.
Russia has lost the vast majority of its functional tanks,
around half of its attack helicopters, about a third of its fighter jets,
half of its troop carrier vehicles... Other than nukes, and
possibly submarines, they are functioning as a third world power
right now. I could easily rattle off 15 countries that would
likely kick their ass in a fight, and not even have to bring our
country into the debate.
The GOP is killing this country in favor of
corporations and oil companies, and the Supreme Court
is helping them do it.
p.s. It's not the farmers and the ranchers you have to
worry about. It's the oil and coal and logging companies,
it's the coal power and nuclear power plants, it's the
chemical and additive processing industries. And it is
the real estate industry, that constantly is buying up
parcels of once pristine land, and parceling and dividing
it up, making it impossible for 'nature' and critters to
His sentence should come with the tag, "no shortening of sentence due to 'good behavior'. As I'm sure any friends he makes in prison will be of like mind (i.e. racist bigots out to 'purify' the country).

It is literally full of disinformation.

Not everyone in America is so smart.
Especially the youth.

This is not good for the country or for the 'minds of America'.
