  1. Al Franken wrote a book called "Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them". It's a simple premise, written with great humor, and with great outrage at the many lies that Republicans like to tell that receive very little push back from Democrats. 

    Obviously, it's much easier to call out liars when you never lie, which makes it hard for some Dems to call out those lying liars on the other side. 

    But if you don' t lie regularly, as both sides are wont to do, then you can kick their lying asses to the curb when they lie because you have the moral high ground and justification to do it:

     

    And this is why I urge elected (D)'s to not play the "both sides to it" game and to call out the Lying Liars when they Lie.

  2. The Democratic Party is not making mistakes! The Democratic Party is not making mistakes! Keep up the resistance. Protest more, riot more, burn more property, aussalt more people, cry more, it is working.

  3. Trump's personal physician for the last 37 years thinks if Trump is alive or dead, who cares?

    At 70 years old, Trump is the oldest man ever to be elected president. Bornstein told the health and sciences publication Stat News that the notion that Trump holds that record “never occurred to me.” The idea that something might happen to Trump did not seem to worry the doctor.

    “If something happens to him, then it happens to him,” he said. “It’s like all the rest of us, no? That’s why we have a vice president and a speaker of the House and a whole line of people. They can just keep dying.”

    1. Taking propecia for baldness, as Dr. Bornstein says that Trump does, has some unfortunate side effects. It makes one see Trump's pudgy fingers in a whole new light.

      Someone ought to twit(ter) Trump about that, as in “Inquiring minds want to know if you’ve experienced any side effects from taking Propecia”…..the sad thing is, he’d probably answer the tweet. It would drive him batshit.

      1. Well, yeah. Propecia (originally a blood-pessure med) is an anti-androgen. That's how it works to combat hair-loss. Male pattern baldness is caused by genes inherited through his mother combined with testosterone poisoning. You know all those commercials encouraging men to see their doctors for "low-T"? They don't really mention that if they have the gene for it, they'll trade their hair for those supplements. 

        1. Apparently, the sexual side effects are the least of the problems associated with Propecia use. Men's Journal reports:

          As we reported last year, the FDA-approved pill has been called into question, with emerging research and a slew of lawsuits suggesting that finasteride may be more dangerous than previously believed. Users report that its side effects — inability to orgasm, painful erections, chronic depression, insomnia, brain fog, and suicidal thoughts — can last long after patients stop taking the pill.

          So the leader of the free world may be addicted to a drug which causes mental confusion and brain fog, as well as suicidal thoughts. Awesome.

           

  4. Trump's chaotic, narcissistic style of management is getting poor reviews from, well, business.  As in it is very bad for…

    “The reason the U.S. is a good place to do business is that, for the past two centuries, it’s built a firm foundation on the rule of law,” Levine writes. “President Trump almost undid that in a weekend. That’s bad for business.”

    Billionaire hedge funder Ray Dalio, who previously said he believed Trump would be good for the economy, has changed his tune: “There is significant risk [Trump’s] populist policies could hurt the world economy (and worse),” he wrote in a letter published Wednesday.

    Trump burns everyone that does business with him, so really doesn't have any close friends/allies in the business world.  His support is only conceptual, based on implementing traditional GOP economic policies (screw the weak and poor, give the wealthy anything they ask for).  Cross them, and they will dump him like week old potato salad.

  5. Incredible.  Less than two weeks in office and One Term Donnie has a crisis with Australiea!  Be careful, one term boy, those platypuses can sting!
