    Wow, so many. Where to begin?

    1. The Healthcare mess. If they thought it was bad before, they are ruining the healthcare system for the entire United States. And now, they have the nerve and the gall to say they don't want to give money to the Insurance Companies. The only reason the Democrats didn't go for Single Payer was because the GOP wouldn't accept anything that didn't protect insurance companies. Come on, it wasn't that long ago.

    2. They are creating and laying the foundation for WWIII in the Korean Peninsula.

    3. The scope of the disaster and Humanitarian Crisis in Puerto Rico is not even being discussed. Disease. People drinking dirty water. Starvation. There is an 800 bed hospital ship parked in the harbor. The last I heard held 8 patients. The crisis is so severe, bodies piled up everywhere are not even being counted. People are scrambling for medicine and something to eat. Roads are still closed and power is out to 80 or 90% of the island and reports are saying it's getting worse.

    4. The GOP is once again trying to destabilize the entire Middle East by tossing a treaty signed by Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and reviewed by the entire UN Security council that prevents Iran from owning nuclear weapons. This debacle could spark a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. The most volatile area in the world.

    5. The president is trying to start a race war. Trying to get team owners to FORCE their players from protesting young unarmed blacks from being shot dead for no more reason than existing.

    6. You have an administration and a party that wants to protect statues to traitors and racists calling it "our heritage". How disgusting.

    7. An attack on women's rights.

    8. An attack on gays. Even the president jokes the Vice President wants them to "hang".

    9. A dearth in qualified workers. We have an unemployment rate under 5% and 6.2 million available jobs. Republicans are making the country terrifying to anyone who wants to come from outside the country. There is even a travel advisory for Missouri for anyone not white. If those jobs aren't filled here, they will be filled after they move someplace else. And by kicking out educated workers, they take their education someplace else.

    10. Opioid scandal. The opioids come from big pharma.

    11. Republicans have done nothing to protect our voting. Nothing to fight Russians and nothing to stop voter suppression. They don't even support voting rights.

    12. The rise in White Supremacists, Nazi's, Alt Right, and Aryan Nation.

    So that's just off the top of my head. I know there is lot's more. The thing about all these scandals is they all go back to the GOP and the President. And it's been less than 10 months. 8 years of Obama and there wasn't anything like this. Any one of these is a national scandal. And we have years to go.

    It's only a lie if it's untrue.

    Boy Scouts: Top leaders didn't call Trump to praise speech as the president said

    Even the Boy Scouts call him a liar. Even the Boy Scouts.

    Destroying our healthcare system will kill a lot of people.

    Of course, the republicans will be damn before we have single payer...They can't even accept some basic regulations to make sure disease isn't fucking spreaded around. Truly sick fucks.

    Our beloved Pres. Trump is doing a magnificent job as president.

    Soo courageous, and a master of diplomacy, we couldn't ask for a better ruler.

    Trump loves America, and America loves love him. ..... :thup:
