    Democrats are getting dastardly as they gear up for 2020 elections by proposing bills that would bar candidates from state ballots unless they release tax returns.

    So there really is one simple trick that could have saved the country?

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      There always has been. It’s called voting. Incredible that people haven’t figured this out.

      • Oblios_Cap

        That’s how the Irish gained control of Boston!

        I’m constantly amazed that there are still people out there who think not doing something the Republicans are trying to keep you from doing is a form of rebellion.

        Wall Street Democrats are the worst.

        • Poorly Behaved Résistanista

          No. They are not. See every Republican. Ever.

          • Oblios_Cap

            You expect Repubs to be shitheads. WS Dems are more like quislings.

        • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

          Actually there is an observation that has been made recently that I’m beginning to think is true. The Democratic party is not really as liberal and racially transcendent as it presents itself to be. You only have to look at the leadership to figure that out. As a party they are led by the same type of people as the Republicans. The only difference is that they get their votes from poor people and ethnic minorities. That’s not a sustainable system. If anything, they are the ones who should be afraid of not making it past the 2020 elections.

          • Whale Chowder

            You’re right, there is no difference between repobs and dimmycrats. Why, just look at their policies and positions!

            Wait…

            Yes, policies and positions that they don’t always fight for when elected.

      Sometimes I think white America’s dancing skills are about on par with those of a background character at the club in a video game.

      • janecita

        That’s why, all those ridiculous group dances like The Macarena, The Electric Slide, etc, etc, are so popular among white people.

        • Oblios_Cap

          That’s why you have to not worry about stupid you look if you are a white dancing fool. We might look dumb, but it’s all about having a little fun.

          Maybe they should stick with ballet. You know they seem to not have a problem with Russia all of a sudden.

      • C4TWOMAN

        As a History buff, I haven’t decided if this is a good or bad thing. Obviously the Alt-right sees it as some sort of victory. But after watching a series on Hitler, it is really helpful to understand ones enemy. I suppose it boils down to who is getting the money. Preferably it should be a charity or anti fascist educational foundation.

      Frighteningly accurate. Last night I saw that Trump had annoyed the Chinese–AGAIN–by suggesting without necessity or provacation that China was responsible for North Korea’s sabre rattling.

      • Incoming Ham

        I don’t think they have any intention of replacing it. Someone on NPR said they will probably move some paragraphs around the present one and call it theirs if they do anything at all.

        • Querolous

          The ACA will be renamed CACA (Crippling Actual Care Act.) The moniker “Obamacare” will be discarded. I doubt if the GOP would use “Romneycare.” “WeDon’tCare” would work.

  • Ezio Auditore

      I wonder how many times they had to reshoot the scene because he blew the line?

    • C4TWOMAN

      Never saw Home Alone 2. Now I have a reason to.

      • Ezio Auditore

        Basically, he gives him the wrong directions to the lobby. He tells Kevin, “down the hall and to
        the left.” But in the scene after, you see Kevin make a
        right to get there.

        • bupkus23

          Maybe they had the film in the camera reversed. Continuity!!!

  • beingreleased

    “Leaked evidence from a California investigation suggests the bank ran by Trump’s pick for Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, did even more unsavory things during the foreclosure crisis of 2008 than we already knew about! Which should make his nomination fight that much more interesting!”

    Let he who has not broken the laws of Man and God to make a quick buck cast the first stone.

          It’s where liberals hold reverse committee hearings you’re required to attend when you’re reverse-accused of reverse patriotism before you’re sent to reverse jail.

          Or maybe I have that backwards.

        • MynameisBlarney

          Well…let’s consider what “McCarthyism” was.
          “McCarthyism is the practice of making
          accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence.
          It also means “the practice of making unfair allegations or using
          unfair investigative techniques, especially in order to restrict dissent
          or political criticism.”

          It would seem that they would and should indeed have a reason to be fearful of the opposite.

        I went over to Washington Post where they “discuss” the wedding nonsense (keep in mind, the Clinton Foundation is like any good non-profit organization, and it has an outside, independent auditor), and I was shocked there was no mention that you can’t trust any of the WikiLeaks documents because they were exfiltrated by the GRU with the express purpose of running a disinformation campaign, and there was evidence in the first dump that documents were altered and one even created new after the hack in the metadata, and then they began scrubbing the metadata (after this was revealed by researchers) in subsequent dumps released.

        You really have to not give a shit to go down this rabbit hole.

Stop telling Democrats we have to be more inclusive, Bernie.

    • Ezio Auditore

      White working class concerns (actual concerns, not fear of refugees “taking their jobs”) are not antithetical to the concerns of People of Color, LGBT people, Jewish people, the disabled, women etc. But the majority of the white working class is not interested in getting to the heart of the problem. Only blaming other people for it. They are not angry because they’re poor. They’re angry because they’re WHITE and poor.

    I’m gonna take a shot in the dark and assume I’m not the only person who has no clue what “dabbing” is.

    • BosGrl

      I immediately thought of “dabs”, like weed extract, because that’s where my brain is lately, but apparently it’s a dance.

      • XtremeFeministRodeoQueen MLG

        Ahhhhh! Like that time my young friends taught me how to “Dougie”.

        • snark-lurker

          i’d like to see that plz

          • XtremeFeministRodeoQueen MLG

            Oh noooo..you do NOT want to see me dance. It’s weird and stuff..

          • Courser

            I can only do the ‘geeky white girl’ dance. Which is really pretty lame.

          • XtremeFeministRodeoQueen MLG

            At least we are consistent, if not rhythmic!

      Kinda like the Charleston or the Black Bottom, but less so.

    • Historicat

      Are you saying you didn’t read the Wonkette post about the debate between Kamala Harris and whatshername who dabbed at one point? For shame!

    • Snopes Shop

      Didn’t know, too tired to google it.

  • Msgr_MΩment

    A fancy lady magazine is citing an anonymous dancer who is saying The Rockettes have been told to put up and shut up (read: “tolerate intolerance“) and just raise a leg for his majesty’s coronation as God-Emperor King of the Trolls.

    If management has told them that they can’t wear letters on their panties that spell out “Fuck Trump”, that would violate the First Amendment.
    Just sayin’.

    • Unpresidented_in_Seattle

      An incredulous Donald asks ‘You mean they will be wearing panties?’ Kellyanne!

    • Pissed de Résistance

      How about wear letters on their panties that spell out Grab Here.

      • snark-lurker

        he will be in their dressing room when they’re nekkid grabbing pussy ’cause “i’m prez now i can do it and you will let me”

      You know what’s scary? Before I even pressed play, I knew that was from Gilligan’s Island. I watched way too much TV as a kid.

    • natoslug

      Sitting on a flag pole sounds painful. Hopefully there’s plenty of lube.

    OT: Latest vandalized Alt-right Trump art…I’m running out of subjects at least the really good ones…..

    • Ezio Auditore

      Someone should do Trump art with him in a witches hat and a bunch of those flying creatures around him. Oh and all the flying creatures say “JUST GIVE TRUMP A CHANCE”.

      • C4TWOMAN

        Sounds like a good cartoon. There’s not much original photorealistic painting style anti-Trump stuff. I suppose because only a deluded Trump fan would spend that much time on it. The Trump nude is an exception.

        I’m trying to balance annoying people who produce this glorifying Trump propaganda and not wasting TOO much time…..

    • ViveLaRésistance

      How are these idiots able to conflate Nazi Germany, Russian dictatorship, the Confederacy, Christianity, capitalism, and American Exceptionalism and not have their heads assplode? Is it because they understand nothing about any of them?

  • BadKitty904

    Dang, Dominic, there’s a truly steaming pile of vile Republican crime and douchery this AM!

    1.) Yeah, the Kremlin’s Klown Kongress is allllllll up in the people’s bidness, alright;
    3.) What “nomination fight”? The GOP Boy’s Club (aka, Congress) will rubberstamp whoever Putin selects, unless it somehow cuts in on their share of the graft;
    5.) Meh. Of interest solely to Trumpanzees and other mouth-breathing feebs;
    6.) Is Holder any good? Genuine question here – I don’t remember what he accomplished under Bamz;
    8.) More cheap threats from reich-wing bullies? Good. Let’s see Sniffles maintain Law’n’Order in Our Nation’s Capitol. Perhaps the Dem minority in Congress should appeal to the UN for troops to restore order in the U.S.;
    10.) I’ll wait and be impressed when said Dem proposal is actually enacted;
    16.) These kids! Next, they’ll be hiding a dime novel in the corn crib and memorizing jokes from Capt. Billy’s Whiz Bang!

    • Pissed de Résistance

      6.) Is Holder any good? Genuine question here – I don’t remember what he accomplished under Bamz;

      He dressed better than Alberto Gonzales.

    • Courser

      Well, the Rethugs hated his guts so bad, but they delayed, delayed, delayed on Lynch’s Congressional approval thing.

      So he’s pretty universally loathed, which means he’s good in my book. He’ll be a pain in Rethugs ass, fer shur.

      • BadKitty904

        He’ll be a pain in Rethugs ass

        That’s enough for me. Sic ’em, Eric!!!

  • Vagenda and Tiara

    I just heard on CNBC that Ryan is saying “the ACA is going to collapse of its own weight, and Democrats are going to have to own the mess.”

    RWNJ to English translation: “we’re going to fuck up the ACA, blame it on Obama, and our base is too stupid to notice that it worked fine before we got involved.”

    • RC

      exactly. If they’d of followed the original plan it would be fine and even more poor people would have healthcare. They keep saying they’ll keep the preexisting conditions clause but all that does is make it so people in that category can get healthcare it won’t do shit for how expensive it’s going to be.

      • Vagenda and Tiara

        I read something the other day that said the GOP basically fucked itself on this one, because their propaganda made the ACA sound like the worst thing since the Holocaust, so the hardcore base wants it gone, but now there are 20 million people benefiting from it, plus the hospitals and insurance industries would be thrown in turmoil, and they don’t want it either. Plus costs would start going back up again, so Republicans backed themselves in to a corner. Couldn’t happen to a nicer group of people.

        • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

          Yeah – even with this “Oh, we’ll phase it out over the next 2-3 elections years” plan the insurance companies are in full freak-out mode.

          • BadKitty904

            Perhaps if they’d considered this before Nov. 7th…

          • thewendyb

            WORSE for hospitals. The ACA stoped us from major hospitals just collapsing under the weight of treating the uninsured through the ER. NOW we get to do that, again: watch hospitals close, across the country.

        • RC

          I keep hearing they are going to kick that can down the road till after 2018 or 2020. They’ll repeal it but it won’t take effect so the next guy will get the blame. Asshats.

          • BadKitty904

            SOP for the “Party of Personal Responsibility”…

          • RC

            I’ve noticed, that for republicans, that “personal responsibility” is like ethics only for other people.

            It’s like the “Nanny State”. It’s only the nanny state when it’s stuff they don’t like but they’ll crawl into your bedroom or vagina at the drop of a hat and man that is about as nanny as it gets.

          • BadKitty904

            That level of knee-jerk hypocrisy is surely approaching mental illness?

          • RC

            Or just plain old asshattery

          • Serai 1

            If the founding fathers had really been as smart and as prescient as a lot of people suppose, there’d be a rule in there about not passing any law written to take effect more than six months after it’s written.

        • ViveLaRésistance

          Many people™ don’t realize that there are components of Medicare linked with ACA, including phasing out the Part D donut hole. Outright repeal of ACA will screw this up. Wait until the Trump voters on Medicare get a load of that.

          • BeachBum

            The understanding of all health care by the public is abominable. The ” I want the govt to stay out of my Medicare” pretty much sums it all up for me.

        • BeachBum

          The loss of munies of 22 mill will force provider costs sky high, in turn will push premiums sky high also. If allowed to continue, only 8-10 % top income could afford health ins. (will look for link on this, sorry).

        • Serai 1

          *raises hand* I’m one of those people who benefitted. For TWENTY YEARS I couldn’t go to a doctor. I’m starting on my third year of trying to fix all the shit that went wrong during that time. So anyone whining and bitching about how the ACA DOESN’T WORK OMG will get a happy bitchslap from Yours Truly, thank you.

          • Vagenda and Tiara

            Don’t you see that Republicans are going to give you a market based solution that will lower the cost of insurance, not cost the government anything, will be paid for by tax cuts, and will involve Donald Trump personally bringing you your own unicorn? Why can’t you just trust them? Sure, they’ve had EIGHT YEARS to come up with a real plan, and they haven’t done it, but they will get around to doing it, any day now.

          • thewendyb

            I can walk. I still need knee replacement surgery, but I can walk now, a little, thanks to surgery through the ACA.

      • Serai 1

        Yeah, because everything in life should be PERFECT THE FIRST TIME and it’s totally worth losing the whole thing just because it’s impossible to switch to a single payer system all at once in this country. Yep, much better to just not have any insurance at all so you can be sure you’ll die, instead of have a chance at living. Much simpler, yes.

    • Unpresidented_in_Seattle

      The ‘you can keep your doctor’ kerfuffle will pale in comparison to ‘what doctor’

      • sgt. jmk of the résistance

        Which will quickly change to “what’s a doctor?”

    • therblig

      “I won’t lie to you, like Obama did. Under my health plan, you won’t be able to keep your doctor, or actually see a doctor. Monthly premiums will be rendered in cash, to armed collection agents. Insurance companies will be given full reign over everything. Forget that shit about pre-existing conditions, of which the common cold is clearly one. And kids are covered until conception.” – DJT

  • Idiokraticdrumpfenjugend

    I don’t think that is dabbing as much as a half extended nazi salute. The guy is trying to restrain his arm ala Dr. Strangelove to avoid smashing Paul Ryan in his face.

  • Courser

    Thanks Dominic! The fox vid answered a question from years ago. I was staying with a friend in her cabin in Grand Lake and we heard this blood-curdling scream in the night! I’m generally pretty brave, but there was no way in hell I was going outside to investigate the horrible sound.

    Mystery solved: It was foxes. Not so scary after all. I could have sworn it was a big cat like a mountain lion.

    • janecita

      You have to hear them mating, it sounds like women screeming.

      • mardam422

        Sounds like that when I mate, too. Sigh.

      • snark-lurker

        oops thought you said, “sounds like womenz [screwing]”

  • Vagenda and Tiara

    Steve Scalisis (R-Dumbass) on CNBC “Obama made specific promises, like that everyone could keep their doctor, and the cost of healthcare would NEVER rise, and then everyone had to pay one trillion dollars for a doctor’s visit. He really needs to come here and apologize to the American public. We’re going to give you something much better, that will be practically free.” I’m paraphrasing, but that was the gist of his bullshit. Of course, no specifics were given. Maybe they’ll do what Bush did with Medicare Part D – create a huge new program, don’t bother to pay for it, and then blame the next Democrat for the massive debt they created.

    • They’re going to keep the precise same thing, just getting rid of the employer mandate (but not the personal one!) and axing the pre-existing condition req.
      Mark it.

    • BMW

      TIL Obama promised more stuff than he actually promised.

  • Vagenda and Tiara

    “This law (ACA) has been a huge failure.” Then he can’t remember Mike Pence’s name, but introduces him, and they all share an evil chuckle, until they can get busy later fucking over the idiot Americans who voted for them.

    SHUT UP PAUL RYAN!!!!

    • If you feel like it, here are the key senators to call (CNN is reporting Rand’s getting overwhelmed with pro ACA calls):

      Sen Lamar Alexander, TN – 202-224-4944
      Sen Bob Corker, TN (Also on Budget Committee) – 202-224-3344
      Sen Susan Collin, ME – 202-224-2523
      Sen Pat Toomey, PA (also on Budget Committee)
      202-224-4254 OR 1-855-552-1831 (if you are calling from PA)
      Sen Rob Portman, OH (also on Budget Committee)
      202-224-3353
      Sen Rand Paul, KY – 202-224-4343
      Sen John McCain, AZ – 202-224-2235

  • Vagenda and Tiara

    Mike Pence on CNBC “we’re going to keep every promise that Trump made, except the majority of them, but we’ll DEFINITELY cut taxes on the rich, and bleed the idiots dry.
    Thanks for voting for idiots, SUCKERS!!!!”

      Hey, it was the least he could do.

  • Teeny-tiny correction…add a zero to the Women’s march expected number. And I think the Rockettes should write “f*ck” on the bottom of one shoe and “you” on the bottom of the other shoe. Every high kick would be delightful.
