It gets worse and more deceptive as Betsy Devos brother is Erik Prince founder of the Mercenary group Blackwater.

Its done. The other side is bought it all.

I see them arguing over the budweiser ad. 'Slamming' it for being false. Cause there are no reports of the guy jumping from a boat on fire.

Like if thats the take away, and the hill they want to die on, drymount it. There's no reaching them.




I hope we're all wrong on all of this. I hope somehow things get better for all of us. But so far, it doesn't look that way.

I had hoped that at least one other republican had a spine, but I guess not. :hanging:

So I wonder if that mean Blackwater will take over security of our public schools?

In other news, rural folk who vote against their own interests will now present less opposition in the job market. So, there's that. Combined with the fact that they will most certainly be more victimized by drug and STD-related epidemics than educated people in metropolitan areas, (as well as being far more likely to be the majority of prison populations with an overabundance of criminal records they can't get away from), they'll present even less of a threat after the side-effects of this idiotic decision finally wind down.

Upside is, parents who give a fudge will actually have to start taking continued education at home far more seriously.

Bet those Hillary Clinton ivory towers sound pretty good right now, huh? Public schools may be decimated right in time for when my kid starts kindergarten, but at least that lady that gave some speeches to Wall Street got put in her place.

This orange piece of shite has lied and swindled every single day of his adult life and he is the President of the United States because enough people are just stupid enough to buy the madman con artist's bullshite. It's absolutely incredible.

Everybody clap for Donald. Let Donald know what a big, big boy he is. Such a good, big boy you are Donald.

Maybe the DNC can rise and up and have its own Tea Party moment. I'm doubtful, but we'll see.

Let's not pretend that if Hillary had been elected that would mean public education is all good. Or that Obama was a leader in climate change progress.

You can spam me with gifs until the cows come home when you speak these truths. Today is a sad day for our country.

I wouldn't suggest either. But it would have been a damn sight better than this. There's no way Hil would have let this DeVos fudge slide.

We did, it was Bernie. Oh but he was a socialist! Obviously Bernie was big on nationalizing the oil industry and taking your private land.

We don't need to pretend because she wasn't and he's no longer. I'd prefer to focus on what is, not what could have been.
