      I have zero faith that the GOP will allow an impeachment no matter what Comey says today but! It's all part of the chip chip chipping away of Republican credibiity that will either lead to a presidential resignation a lŠ Nixon, or a Democratic wave election in 2018. And a Dem wave in 2018 will lead to impeachment.










      HOWEVER! Those bastards are gearing up to fast track Trumpcare in the Senate while everyone is distracted by Russiagate, so here's a calling/faxing list for today:

      . . . and they are trying to ditch the financial regs that were put in place to prevent another economic recession:

          Calls, faxes and emails have dropped off tremendously, (back down to pre-Trump levels) so the GOP thinks they can pass AHCA without any outcry. Time to show them they are wrong, y'all!














          McConell has been pretending that they don't have the votes so they can just slip this through without alerting the Resistance. It ain't true! They do have the votes. TAKE THOSE VOTES AWAY.

            For those who are interested, this might explain why McCain voted YES on the motion to proceed on a bill he then voted NO on when he came to the floor:



















            This was the most bigly way to kill it dead (and majorly fuck over McConnell). Now I feel bad for being so irritated with him over his MTP vote.



            I remember the days when I didn't have to stay up til 2:30 AM just to see if my gov't was going to vote to kill people or nah. I miss those days.

              I don't know who to even partially trust to care about humans anymore, but if it was a calculated move, then

                Ooops. Seeing that the 'McCain voted yes on MTP to kill the bill dead even more bigly' story might just be a story, oh well. We can all go back to feeling irritated with him over letting it get this far in the first place.


                Doesn't make McConnell's salty turtle tears any less delicious, though!


                As for all the turmoil in the White House it's so lovely how they are defenestrating each other. Like tossing people overboard the Titanic just minutes before it goes under anyway.

                    I feel really really really good about all of our choices for the Dem nom so far.* I don't even have a fave yet, I'm just enjoying this moment before it all becomes the hellish nightmarescape election campaign season always does. WE HAVE WOMEN CANDIDATES!!! THAT'S PLURAL!!!


                    *except for Tulsi Gabbard, because ugh.

                      THERE ARE SO MANY WOMEN OMG.

                      Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

                            I was reading back though this thread and hoo boy. It's incredible how numb I feel after just three years. In 2017, roly said this:


                            Burnout is my biggest fear with this. The constant outrage is just EXHAUSTING. I'm not a fan of Andrew Sullivan, but he made an analogy in a recent article that I thought was perfect; he said having Trump as President is like living with an abusive father. You're just continually anxious and on edge, not knowing when he's going to erupt again and who his target will be. And that can really wear you down after a while, so it will be difficult to keep fighting and resisting, but it's what needs to be done.


                            And in retrospect she was absolutely right. I burned out on trying to contact my reps every day (never got through to a single one, ever) and all that hope got so battered down and so many new injustices got normalized, and the Senate let us down so many times to the point that even though THE MOTHERFUCKER GOT IMPEACHED yesterday, I just don't feel anything at all.


                            I want to! I mean, this was at least SOMETHING. It a legacy that will forever haunt him, but still! Doesn't feel anywhere near like the victory it would have a year or so ago.


                            Honestly, I'm just relieved he hasn't started a nuclear war with North Korea (yet), that fear has just been hammering me into the ground.


                            Even though many pollsters saying the odds are very good that our next election will result in a Dem president, I don't even know if I can trust that/or feel hopeful about that either! Everything just seems awful all the time.


                            Even if the best possible thing happens and we wake up in November with a President Warren, how do we fix all that is broken?


                            I don't want to feel like this!

                              Oh beek, yes, to all of this, every bit. I am just so tired of being angry at him and the republicans and all the idiots who voted them in. I got no joy out of the impeachment at all; it made me sad.

                              And I just hate this worn-down cynicism. It’s just not who I like to be.

                              Also: I miss Roly!

                                I also feel nothing about this impeachment. And I truly believe he will be reelected (and Republicans will turn out for him in record numbers). I've never seen devotion to a politician at this fervor before. I mean, people acted like Obama was a saint and gave him the doubt at every turn but at least Obama was a decent man who took his position in history very seriously. Trump will get so much worse in a second term. I just don't even know how to process it or how terrible so many people I know and am related to are. It's unsettling.
