he has another 119 federal judges to appoint, and probably 2 more USSC justices. I expect those judges to be conservative activists and the next time there is a Democratic President I expect them to put the kaboosh on any legislation proposed just like what's going on now.

I have seen at least one person on this forum advocate every last one of these things in the past few weeks.
^^^This in a nutshell^^^

Good post!

You don't seriously believe that 119 judges are going to just up and vacate their seats do you?

What I don't understand are the people who are still sticking beside him even after all of these revelations and his disastrous performance since he took office on Jan 20th.

What we are looking at is some kind of cover-up of God knows what at best and downright treason at worst. That is not even considering his incompetence and the danger that he poses should a serious crisis happen in this country. Why are so many people okay with that?

We'll have to see what his approval ratings look like next week. After the latest bombshells, I doubt it will still be 40%. Once his approval rating gets down into the 20s, he is fair game for impeachment.
Heresay and accusations are not a revelation.

If I tell you it's snowing in August in Florida, you going to take that as the gospel truth? What if I get all of the local news crews in Florida to go on about it?

Name rank and file. No more anonymous sources and claims.

Unless is pertains to Hillary or Obama.

Why?
His attention span was that of a gnat.
He was derogatory and offensive and downright hateful.
He didn't have a coherent agenda - just catchy one liners strung together.
And so much more- yet he was elected.
It's going to be a hardlesson in "when people show you who you are, believe them."

No.

Not only am I going to kick conservatives while they're down, I'm going to laugh while I'm doing it.

Did you think 8 years of "Kenyan Muslim birther hysteria" would just... go away?

And I don't even have to resort to birther nonsense. That, to me, is the truly beautiful part. I don't have to make up anything. "Your own party thinks you're so stupid they literally use the words 'alternative facts' with a straight face!"

I do not feel like America is a nation worth much these days. Nor do I feel like conservatives, or whatever we're calling people who consistently vote for the GOP, to be countrymen worth the patriotism nonsense.

The social contract only works in a society; there is no polite denial for a stench atop a burning garbage pile.

Hell no.

Conservatives ESPECIALLY loved trashing African Americans for voting for Obama, so I'm not about to let up on Trump voters.

It'll be a cold day in hell before I ease up. I'm trying to make them mad enough to punch me! Lol

Because he deceived on a daily basis?

He displayed his character very clearly, but he also lied, again and again. Remember the wonderful health care plan he promised, the one that would take care of everyone? There are other examples, but that is the one that is most likely to really harm the people who trusted him when he said it.

He said so many different things that I found it nearly impossible to believe any of them, other than the travel ban and the wall (other than that "Mexico will pay" part), which is why I didn't believe any of it. Unfortunately, lots of people did, and they have been cruelly betrayed, although many have yet to recognize it.

It seems we have misunderstood each other. I though you were defending him, and you thought I was.

Living in a Democracy is a challenge for some.
