    How Donald Trump Ruined Thanksgiving

    He didn't ruin mine.
    Then again, I didn't do family, I was up in the northeast with tons of anti-trumpers... (circumstance, not intent) ...and most of my friends and family detest him.
    The ones that don't...I don't talk politics with them, just for sanity purposes.

    How did you handle it??

    There were 40 of us, but something like 17 of them were under 14 years old. Travel, jobs, sports, and food were talked about.

    The question is, are these agencies still doing the job they are intending to do? Have the wait times at the VA gone down? Is there a lot of pollution being released and not cleaned up? Are there enough people in college becoming public school teachers to replace those who are retiring? The media needs to not be hyper focused on Trump and actually monitor what the anti-government Republicans are doing behind the scenes.

    138 things Trump did this year while you weren't looking

    Ok, so it's all this...and it will continue...
    It's a new year...and still it's SSDD.

    So I "think" I'm going to lay off posting this shit as much (don't hold me to it...)
    Because this is like trying to track/support an alcoholic friend.
    It gets old
    Because it's the same mess...and saga...and it won't stop until THEY do something about it. (Drink, Drugs, Gambling...Trump ;))
    Toxic habits are just that.
    Toxic environments are just that.

    And it will continue getting worse, until someone cleans up that shit.

    'nuff said
    I'm tired of it all...and want to focus on other things.
    Someone else can spout on about it. (again, don't hold me to it...I have my own "addictions" :rolleyes:)

    My unscientific thoughts on why Trump gets away with lies, misdeeds, & questionable acts (LMQA) so often.

    Some of his supporters are stupid, they believe his lies.
    Some of his supporters suspect he's lying, but can't be bothered to perform the research to find out (and only partially care).
    Some of his supporters know he's lying, and don't care.

    The amount of LMQA from Trump is overwhelming.
    The mainstream media won't commit to keeping track.
    The American public, in general, has a short memory, and tires of hearing "old" news. Which helps drive the mainstream media moving on from stories about his LMQA.

    The Republicans put on a public, and media, show of opposing Trump, but work with him behind the scenes. Trump gets what he wants (of course not always) and the GOP saves face with the public.

    The Washington Post is trying to keep track.

    President Trump has made 1,950 false or misleading claims over 347 days

    This is the administrations strategy and the biggest problem with the current ADHD media. Everyone is chasing the story and the viewers and the media doesn't care about the long term impact of past events.

    And this provides a lot of distractions and overwhelms any opposition to one issue, because there is going to be a different thing next week. And there are plenty of things being done by state legislatures, people appointed to lead agencies to fail so they can be eliminated, people appointed to lead agencies to implement a conservative policy agenda and fire any employees that resist, and the large scale retirement of government workers who don't want to work under this administration.

    And while this stops in September, Axios will hopefully be updating it. Sadly, the trend hasn't changed.

    This ^.

    The American public, generally speaking, is lazy, and has a superficial knowledge of politics.
    They want their news, esp. political coverage, simple & quick.
