    Our boy is back at the Surveys - have fun!

    https://gop.com/president-trump-first-50-survey/

    My favorite question was about abortion and Medicaid:

    Under Trumpcare, you can't get an abortion, but your insurance doesn't have to cover prenatal care, labor and delivery, or postnatal care, and if you can't afford insurance, Medicare is being phased out.  The new pro-life.

    Oh, and of course Trump is keeping his salary. I don't believe for a second he'll donate it all at the end of the year.

    A lawyer friend of mine stated on FB (yes I know everything we read on FB is true) that the POTUS can't decline the salary. Don't know if he is correct or not.

  • @ILoveBeachMusic I've heard that too - @charlotte989875  any insight?

    I just love these confirmation bias surveys.  They're so obvious.

    Almost as obvious as Obama's attempts to spy on Trump.


    I don't know that he can decline; but I don't see why he couldn't donate the equivalent or more anywhere he chooses.

    Mulvaney also addressed cuts to Meals on Wheels."


    Did he seriously just fucking say that food doesn't matter for brain function?! I feel like my head is exploding with rage.

    Wow.  Yeah.  Saying it's just fine and dandy to starve children and elderly people seems to be a really extreme viewpoint...even for an uber-conservative.


    I really don't care about how much any President "vacations."  They're never truly off and I recognize that.

    However, when you campaign on not vacationing, and cut programs that feed hungry children while likely costing us billions in vacation expenses - payable to buildings you own - I have a major fucking problem.

    I know this wasn't your point, but I couldn't help but add...

    Unless one of the worst national disasters to hit our country happens while they're on vacation (an entire neighboring state away, smh).  And they can't stop stuffing their face with birthday cake and champagne to do more than barely acknowledge it, ie George W. Bush in regards to Hurricane Katrina.

    Obviously, I'm still bitter and despise GWB.  But still think he was a better POTUS than Trump, smh.  It pains me so much to say that because, never in my wildest dreams, did I ever think we'd have a POTUS I'd have stronger negative feelings for.

    This.

    I also have a problem when you STILL GET MONEY FROM YOUR COMPANY.   

    It's an absolute outrage that he's turning this into for profit presidency.

    For those who claim "He loves America," I think he loves how he can make money off of it.   It's infuriating to me that he has gone to his "winter white house" so often that he's spent more on vacations in two months than our previous President did in all 8 years.

    M and I had a conversation about this not long ago!
    Bush was harmless. Ignorant, but harmless. He wasn't great but again, harmless.

    Trump is scary because he's ignorant and that causes reactions and danger :(

    I also have a huge issue with the fact that he is conducting state business in front of his fucking customers and even chumming around with them. Um, no, that's not okay. I don't care if there's a loophole that makes it technically legal, it is irresponsible and disgusting behavior from someone who is supposed to be Commander in Chief.

    I used to work for a defense contractor and my work site was a Naval facility.  Every year about a month before Christmas, we'd all be e-mailed the official Federal policy on gifts, ie it can't be cash, there are value limits, etc.

    I remember my boss making a wise comment.  Even if someone/an organization has the best intentions and follows the letter of the law, you never want to give even the PERCEPTION of impropriety. 

    I think Trump and members of his administration have walked well past "perception".

    I can't agree with you more!

  • Y'all, I have been in the same room with Mick Mulvaney.  He is gross.  Think used car salesman crossed with televangelist, in an ill-fitting suit.  It doesn't surprise me that he and Trump have the same fan base.  Cut from the same cloth.

    My Congressman had a townhall today after two years of silence. Naturally he held it at 8am the day after St Pats, but still filled a room. 

    We slept in and are now watching the live stream from earlier. It's pretty amazing!

    Of course Ivanka is moving into a west wing office. 

    And of course Tillerson isn't attending the NATO meeting in Brussels in April. 

    Did anyone watch the hearing about the Russian involvement. Holy shit the questions the Rebublicans were asking were making me stabby. At one point they asked about a fucking tweet that Trump made about the hearing while the hearing was still happening

  • So I generally stay out of this because I feel like an asshole complaining when I don't live in the states but this actually affects me. 

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/21/us/politics/tsa-ban-electronics-laptops-cabin.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=0

    IMO, The only reason this isn't happening is because the American Airlines are feeling threaten by the gulf airlines. Can you imagine someone traveling to the US for business not being able to access their work on anything but a phone for 12 hours? Trump is isolating the US from the rest of the world in a time when people need to expand their lives.

    Fucking insane.  

    Also, not Trump related...but Tomi Lahren got suspended from The Blaze (fucking Glenn Beck's website...I think Samantha Bee trying to make him look 'all right' in her interview with him was a misstep) for saying to stay 'away from my guns and out of my body' (or something like that).  http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/20/tomi-lahren-suspended-from-the-blaze/

    I don't feel sorry for her or anything.  But that right there shows how fucking rabid shit is getting.  Fall in line 100% or they will eat their own.
