SparkPeople Proud Blue Liberals Team Messageboard Just a friendly little group from the other side of the political tracks. No mudslinging or nastiness. All are welcome. SparkPeople Proud Blue Liberals Team Messageboard Psych! I read this morning that there's been back-channel communications between trump and Kim all along, and that this whole thing was staged to keep their respective bases quiet. If this is true -- and I wouldn't put it past either of them -- my contempt for both of them has grown exponentially. <BR> <BR> Meantime, now trump is threatening to invade Venezuela. Their society and economy are a disaster, but since when is that grounds for war? Who's next, Antarctica? <BR> <BR> The sooner this lunat... Sat, 12 Aug 2017 10:15:33 EST It begs the question So trump is taking a two and a half week vacation because he's exhausted from all the hard work he's done since January (insert rude snort here). And some Russian oligarch is vacationing at or near the same hotel. Coincidence much? <BR> <BR> But guess who ISN'T going on vacation? <BR> <BR> <img src=""> Mon, 7 Aug 2017 13:16:10 EST Hi! from Missouri I'm Jane and I'm so glad I found this group! I was hunting around for a group of like minded folks that was still active. I belong to a feminist group but there are very few posts. <BR> <BR> Anyway, my DH and I moved to St. Charles, Missouri from Chicago a couple of years ago. I was very involved in progressive causes there and I feel a bit like I've landed in Oz. I had been on SP before. After two deaths in my family last year, then the election, my weight and blood pressure were way up. S... Tue, 25 Jul 2017 16:43:40 EST It just doesn't stop Now slimeball Kushner will be allowed to "testify" behind closed doors without oath. I don't know why they're even bothering. <BR> <BR> And this morning comes the wonderful news that 45 has suggested that he might replace Sessions with Rudy Giuliani! Sessions has neither been fired nor resigned yet. I seriously dislike him, but I can't stomach Giuliani. I wonder if trump's "suggestion" was meant to scare Sessions back in line? I certainly wouldn't put it past him. Mon, 24 Jul 2017 12:05:02 EST He is a complete moron his "people" should really prep him better if he is going to do interviews...geesh <BR> <BR> This would be hilarious if he weren't sitting in the WH <BR> <BR> <link><BR>health-insurance-comments/ </link> Thu, 20 Jul 2017 21:20:27 EST OMG! Things are changing in DC Late night breaking news Monday night: 2 more Repugs are going to vote NO to Trump care. Rachel broke the news and it felt SOOOO good to see McConnell be stymied. He'll announce it to the press at noon (DC time) Tuesday. Back to the drawing board. Worth watching. Tue, 18 Jul 2017 05:38:34 EST A sharp right into Wonderland So now 45 has said that the wall has to be fifty feet high and transparent or equipped with viewports so Americans won't be clocked by sixty pound bags of drugs being thrown over from the Mexican side. Where do I even begin? (I wish to God I could say this is satire, but he actually said it.) Mon, 17 Jul 2017 19:38:36 EST " JIM " Has anybody heard RUMP mention....."MY GOOD FRIEND, JIM"? Apparently, RUMP keeps talking about his BFF "JIM"; BUT.....NOBODY seems to know WHO this "JIM" IS! <BR> Could RUMP have an "IMAGINARY FRIEND"? <em>40</em> <em>20</em> <em>18</em> Sun, 16 Jul 2017 11:34:04 EST Is that a confession? Maybe I'm jaundiced (okay, I'm totally jaundiced), but 45's tweets from G20 sound awfully like a confession to treason. And his idea of a joint cyber-security operation with Russia? Why not a joint henhouse security force with foxes? Mon, 10 Jul 2017 12:27:53 EST Poker tells I can only bear hearing the Twaddler in Chief's voice so long....ditto some of the other suspects... so I've taken to watching clips of testimony and such with the sound off (but ideally, with closed captions running). <BR> <BR> Ever noticed how the R Congresspeeps and such look like they've had botox all over? It makes it hard to read them... meanwhile, Jeff Sessions has a silly tell - he thins his lips slighly and pushes the embouchure (area just below the lips) out. <BR> <BR> Ryan (that... Sun, 9 Jul 2017 10:15:09 EST Bonus points Apparently some folks got email notification that these are available again: <BR> <link><BR>bonus_ points.asp </link> <BR> <BR> See? The power of protest at work, lol!! Fri, 7 Jul 2017 12:54:47 EST Unbelieveable, except everything's believeable now I am just gob-smacked. I just now looked at the latest Twit from the Twitter in Chief and am speechless. He is going to get some poor journalist killed and we will have no recourse. He won't be sued over it, he won't have to answer for it. <BR> <BR> I don't want to hear one bit of analysis from the media on this, I just want to hear every single journalist clearly say that he must delete it and apologize. Sun, 2 Jul 2017 18:03:34 EST A new depth of stupid trump actually sent his babyfaced weasel of a son-in-law on a diplomatic mission to the Palestinians. To say it didn't go well is an understatement of massive proportions. Kushner has absolutely NO place in American diplomacy, particularly on a mission as sensitive as this one. The Palestinians are furious, and I don't blame them a bit. Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:06:01 EST Better and better! Mueller has hired TWELVE attorneys to work with him investigating trump and Russia. He's actively investigating trump for criminal obstruction of justice. And it looks like Babyface son-in-law has criminal prosecution staring him in the face as well (I've long suspected that he may be the dirtiest one of the bunch). <BR> <BR> Fun times are coming -- be prepared! <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> Fri, 16 Jun 2017 12:39:11 EST Sessions in session I don't recall. I can't remember. I don't know. If Jeff Sessions' memory is that bad, he has no business holding important public office. But I don't believe he has a bad memory. I think he has a serious attack of the Fifth Amendment. Wed, 14 Jun 2017 13:03:07 EST So proud of my town!

It's been announced that Ivanka will have her own office in the West Wing and full security clearance. I don't remember seeing her name anywhere on the ballot. What exactly was she elected to? <BR> <BR> Presidents of both parties have had adult children and NONE of them ever had security clearance. This is pure horse-hockey. Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:37:05 EST I don't know about you... ...but I'm sick to death of subsidizing the trump family's lavish lifestyle! We could subsidize Meals on Wheels for a year for what one of his golf weekends costs. And don't even start me on Melania's refusal to move into the White House. So many valuable programs could easily be paid for with the money these leeches are wasting. <BR> <BR> Okay, rant over -- for the moment. Sun, 19 Mar 2017 12:36:54 EST Getting active locally Has anyone gotten involved with local action groups? I'm actually starting to feel a little over-extended and am wondering if I should narrow my focus a bit. <BR> <BR> After the election I was desperate to get involved in some meaningful way, and for a few weeks there it didn't seem like there was anything much to join, particularly at a local level. And now it's almost overwhelming! <BR> <BR> I follow at least 6 or 7 local groups on Facebook, and have attended meetings or marches with most...

Fri, 3 Mar 2017 15:37:33 EST The swamp deepens So now Jared Kushner and Jeff Sessions were involved in contacts with Russia. This is way beyond Watergate, which was purely domestic. It's long past time this pestilence was removed from office. Thu, 2 Mar 2017 18:32:10 EST Timeline of Events on Russia "leaks" This story is getting very convoluted, so I was happy to see an article at Kos simplifying it into a timeline.

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 10:51:53 EST Here we go again So 45 has tweeted that the DNC Chair election was "rigged." I've got to stop asking if he can get any more ridiculous. He seems to take it as a personal challenge.

Credible intelligence reports that the terror attack in Sweden was carried out by the same people responsible for the Bowling Green Massacre. Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:09:38 EST Our greatest weapon Let's not underestimate our most potent weapon against trump -- ridicule. Hitler never had to deal with SNL or Twitter. We know trump has no sense of humor whatever, especially about himself. <BR> <BR> Keep laughing at him and showing how ridiculous he is. It'll not only drive him crazy, but it will dispel some of the fear. Despots rely on fear. If we disarm fear with laughter, he can't succeed.

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:24:28 EST Women's March Anyone going? My niece is, but my sister and I had been hoping that a local march would be organized. The good news is that one was being organized, the bad news is that it was put together by a lot of inexperienced folks and stirred up no end of ruckus. The good news is that they basically started over and got things back on track, the bad news is that a second group of more experienced organizers have a second march in the works. <BR> <BR> *sigh* Liberals.

Fri, 6 Jan 2017 13:57:16 EST Starting to feel more hopeful Since there's no use in hiding under the bed for the next two or four years, I've been doing what I can every week to take some positive progressive action. But I gotta be honest, it's still been pretty dispiriting. <BR> <BR> So tonight I followed a link from Daily Kos to MSNBC and Rachel Maddow and she had two great segments.

If you missed it, google it and listen. Fri, 14 Oct 2016 01:56:35 EST What more do they need? So now Rump brags about how he can get away with sexual assault because he's famous and "so good looking" (his actual words.) And the Trumpkins keep defending him! Some people are so stupid! Wed, 12 Oct 2016 17:22:03 EST Yeah, THAT'S gonna happen. NOT. Beware, critics and disparagers! The all-seeing oracle Omarosa has declared that the day is coming when you "will all bow down to President Trump." I guess we're doomed, right? Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:17:14 EST Say what? My roommate here is a CNn junkie (and a Republican). She turned it on about seven this morning. The most recent police shootings were under discussion. It's a good thing I'm stuck lying down, because they played a clip of Rump giving a measured, completely appropriate statement about the Tulsa case. Of course, he promptly took another swan-dive right off the deep end, but I wouldn't have thought him capable of even that little. <BR> Wed, 21 Sep 2016 16:47:10 EST Enough is enough Trump said that Hillary's Secret Service detail should be disarmed and "let's see what happens." This is at least the second threatening statement he's made against her. If you or I made a threat against a candidate, we'd be in federal prison by now. Why isn't he? Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:37:56 EST Hillary's health Pneumonia is not to be messed with (and I've had it twice so I know), but for crying out loud! The Repubs are floating everything from lung cancer to leprosy. She's 68 and keeps a schedule that would floor most twenty-somethings. Isn't she entitled to be sick once in awhile?

Great. A repressive religious nut. Just what we need. Thu, 14 Jul 2016 17:09:58 EST I'm still laughing Did anyone else enjoy Ruth Bader Ginsberg's takedown of Rump as much as I did? Don't tangle with Notorious RBG! Wed, 13 Jul 2016 19:33:11 EST Time to move on, people The (Republican) director of the FBI found no grounds for criminal charges in the email "scandal."

I am not a British subject and figured I didn't know enough to form an educated opinion on the exit vote -- until Rump cheered its passage. So I'm totally against it. Meantime, I see he stuffed his $5,000 Italian loafer in his mouth yet again (apparently nobody told him Scotland voted against it). <BR> <BR> On a totally frivolous side note, Scotland and Northern Ireland are both talking about possibly leaving the UK in light of the vote. If Northern Ireland does leave, I wonder if I'll see m... Sat, 25 Jun 2016 15:08:30 EST Is it just me? Does anybody else wonder if Trump is mentally ill? I don't just mean his horrific views. Given what he says and does, I wonder if he isn't clinically insane. Thoughts, anyone? Mon, 20 Jun 2016 16:57:13 EST I'm here! I haven't had access to a computer since February.

And I'll be shooting for my OWN hand!" <BR> <BR> But jus... Sat, 11 May 2013 12:05:51 EST I don't get it Abercrombie & Fitch has been sued repeatedly for racial discrimination.
