  1. “I’m shocked, SHOCKED,” I say! What? Are Trump’s supporters have ‘buyers’ remorse so soon? Has he not changed their lives for the better yet? Has hating on minorities not been enough to change the status of their lives? Say it ain’t so! I am devastated, to be sure! I would have thought that ALL was well in the land of ‘Donald “You’re Fired!” Trump. Health care for millions is about to get cut, $16 million dollars was just wasted by dropping the Mother Of All Bombs on Afghanistan which is what Americans like anyway. A government shutdown was averted until September comes around. Meals-on-wheels is still up in the air or has that been cut out completely? Ben Carson said that he doesn’t think poor people should be comfortable in their housing situation. So, he’s making that clear! I thought we were right on schedule. What’s not to like??? LMAO!

    • Well, Shelby, that raises the interesting question of exactly who Trump’s supporters are. Apparently his hard corp supporters are really thrilled about him firing Comey: http://edition.cnn.com/2017/05/11/us/trump-comey-firing-voter-reactions/index.html

      I think the Republican Party have used Trump for their own ends and will pay for it in the midterm elections. But it will, as usual, be American voters who lose because the presidential and congressional elections are merely sideshows. The US government will continue to be run by Wall Street elites no matter who holds office. I think this is fairly well-known among the US public which is why half of them don’t vote.

  2. That’s good news and cheered me up immensely.

    • Gerard, I think Systemic Disorder is right. The Democrats are too much controlled by Wall Street and will never back a candidate like Bernie Sanders who advocates for the genuine interests of working people. If the Democrats really wanted to save themselves they would act like a genuine opposition party and unite behind single payer health care as an alternative to Obamacare. They can’t even do that.

  3. Good news, but we should never under-estimate the Democratic Party’s ability to blow elections.
