Were you guys not born in 1991 or just too young to remember? In 1991, George H. Bush had super high approval ratings and it was thought that no Dem could run against him and win--everyone was intimidated. The Dems were kind of a joke. The front runners were Mario Cuomo and Bill Bradley and I think Harkins was around.

Along came Ross Perot and then Bill Clinton emerged in the spring of 1992. The rest is history.

You guys knock yourself out with your 'predictions.' It is very entertaining.
Exactly, are people forgetting 2012, when everyone was talkin' about how the Republicans were in serious trouble?

What is more, I don't want men to be in the bathrooms with them, even if they are pretending to be women.
I thought that law applied only to single-occupancy bathrooms (where the concern of someone who is the opposite gender going at the same time in there is irrelevant), and that multi-stall bathrooms can continue to be gendered.

There's two laws, one for all single-occupancy bathrooms (AB 1732), and the other for all government owned restrooms and locker rooms (AB 1266).

Exactly.
And in the mean time, a significant part of democrats are becoming terrorists, and no Dem leaders are speaking out about it.

Democrats do, but you seem to only care about the fact that they take the time to mention the 0.05% and that is the problem

A couple of people from your progressive side of the party have even pointed this out like Cornel West and Marc Lamount Hill.

People of color and LGBT people are told to shut up and take the scraps when the Progressives are in charge because straight white people dont want to hear about any of that, even when 99% of the platform is about them.

That loses far, far, far more votes amongst 99.9999% who understand their concerns are ignored.

Had Democrats focused on overall economic issues, w/o regard to he .0001%, they might have won.

A rising tide lifts all boats, and must be the sole economic focus. Not who sits where.
As I have said before, that is flawed logic .


The actually comparison would be a rising tide and you telling LGBT and black people to wait for the next boat.

im not talking about affirmative action here, so this isnt about being first on the boat. We are talking about equal opportunity for a job, and many people saying they dont hire blacks/mexicans or gays.

You are not amused. You are panicked. NOTHING has worked out the way you said it would.

i.e. Who's the President?
But Trump has, in fact, caused many problems--the implications of which the country will feel for years. He has incited violence and brought embarrassment and disgrace to the office he pretends to occupy as well as to the country. His approval is sliding downhill and he has only lost support since January, or haven't you noticed?

Who is the president? Beats me--whoever is telling Trump what to think this week. We've never had a president with such a lack of morals, belief or knowledge.

I have seen nobody acting like a president since January--just a childish hateful, and unfortunately ignorant, megalomaniac who thinks only of himself and is propped up by a small minority of the country.

To many he is a so-called president who acts like a pathetic comedian.

Panicked? Why would I be panicked? I need nothing from the pathetic orange buffoon. It is sad he cannot provide the leadership some in the country would like, but I don't really care about him. He provides great comedy. Nothing more.

And, btw, he just pardoned a disgusting criminal scumbag. Add that to Trump's extremely pathetic non-legacy. Sad!
