I'm so tired of the inaction of congress since 2010. It was obvious to everyone what the plan was the moment President Obama took office, do nothing hope the country falls apart and blame the black man. The right wing in this nation has no idea's to help the economy besides lowering taxes for the wealthy, eliminating food stamps and privatizing everything. The President put forth plans that are proven to work, such as rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. He can't do anything though with out the help of congress, at least anything substantial. It really stinks when you have one party trying to destroy everything. Heck they even blame gas prices on the President, when in fact we could have 2.00 a gallon gas over night if we stopped exporting gasoline. It's just unreal, how bad the Republicans have gone. There used to be some respectable ones, like Jon Huntsman, but they are such a rare breed it's unreal.

With that said we still have a major problem, in 2014 we have a chance to get the republicans out of control, but I fear it's not going to happen. The main reason is the democratic coalition of people, just don't seem to vote in off year elections, those of us left of center need to change this, the Democrats need to start thier campaign now, drive home the importance of this upcoming election. If the Republicans keep control of the house and can still filabuster in the Senate nothing will get done at all, pretty much like it has since since 2010.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
