And just to add to all my disillusionment.

This comes out yesterday, and doesn't even make TV news.
Just a reminder, that this would be weeks of non-stop news coverage for any other president and ultimately lead to their removal from office.

For Trump. It's a Thursday. Cause hell, he probably will do five worse things before the day ends.

Just because actions meet a standard of impeachment does not mean it is in the best interest of the country to remove a President from office.

Jesus Christ. Do these assholes really think by putting a little disclaimer on their vote will change anything for their fate?

I kind of want to change my username to Demon. Oh, and for our lurkers, yes my avatar is actually me. Well, me about 20 years younger. And yes, I am as miserable in real life as you imagine. In fact, more so. I hate everyone and everything, mostly because my face is stuck in a permanent eyebrow raise/smirk, thanks to my raging TDS.

It’s so funny that the monumental vote is whether or not they should allow evidence to be presented... in a trial.

I really don’t care what side you’re on. Sure, throw what I see as a total distraction of Hunter Biden up there. Even though it’s a separate issue. Put him up there. I get it, Republicans want to paint this as a total sham. Fair, fine, as you wish. But democrats control the house. Not a healthy precedent to block evidence from being presented.

Forgot to quote but I’m software engineer. Database specifically. Used to do full time work but i do contracting. A lot of my work is off hours so i want to be paid for that work. I go in, build things up, stick around for a while and then go do same thing somewhere else. Or remodel an existing environment.

But back to our fading democracy...

I’m dreading the tweets to come later today. And this weekend. And how the Super Bowl should really be a celebration of Trumps triumph!!

Bolton would be very wise to speak up now before Barr shuts down any chance of his book seeing the light of day.

There are no rules for the GOP after today. No checks. The Dems, never Trumpers, and independents better turn out in November.

Oh the youth vote could help too but I’m too old now and don’t trust them. Or their hippity hop music

Before catching w the angst of the day, i wanted to comment on this, too.

Much like womenfish, I have much love and respect for woman and LGBTQ community, but in growing up, for about 25 of my first years on earth, it was completely normal to call guys “girly” or saying something is “gay”. I know now that doing that was wrong but the intention was never to be offensive or hateful, nor do I think I ever have possessed deep rooted hate. It’s a change in awareness and understanding but it’s not always perfect. A couple weeks ago I casually said “that’s really fucking gay” about something and immediately corrected myself. It’s not always easy to break out of it and I hope there’s a level of understanding that there are people like me out there that don’t mean harm.
Good post, mikal.

Each of us who (luckily) has not been taught a deep rooted against group(s) ________, if we have also been taught kindness, and respect in general hopefully strive as we can to learn both current broad, and more nuanced levels, aspects, and historic paths that other groups experience over the years.
I thank my folks (especially my mom) for instilling that type of outlook, and effort in me. I do my best as I keep learning.

Did it hurt to get your eyebrow up that high. It's a fun photo, actually- like a fun take on a SciFi, or Horror movie.

Cipollone was in a meeting with Zelensky, and Gulliani? Schiff accused him of withholding info.

John Kelly said "Senate is sherking their duties" if they don't allow witnesses.

And Giuliani called Bolton is a liar.

You'd think Uncle Bernie would be encouraging to someone who hasn't taken a cent from special interests to be included in the debates...

unless it's an inheritance i find it exceptionally hard to believe that anyone became a multi-billionaire without taking vast numbers of cents from special interests.
