from ben gazi to the hacked emails we are now on to reality 01/05/2017. it is only my opinion yet i believe that president obama will be in office a little longer than his elected two terms. i do not believe that donald trump will be found eligible to be sworn in as the president of the united states.

Well wonderful thought, but would that place Pence in the presidential office, because believe it or not, that would be worse.

There was only one republican elected president from 1933 till January 1969. Americas 20th century golden years, when America was the envy of the world.

Zap: Are you saying that American's 20th Century Golden Years occurred when the US had Jim Crow, Lynchings, Separate but Equal, Atomic Bombings, the Cuban Embargo, support for an Israeli state, Judeo Christian dominance, disdain for "illigitimacy", gays in the closet, American Exceptionalism, patriarchy, two parent family values, the Lord's prayer being taught in school, etc?

Do you ascribe all this to Democratic Presidents?

I will agree, America was the envy of the world then. When a "macho" style of American Exceptionalism was bold and strident, and protected Americans and .

The last eight years, despite many promises by the Dems and Obama, have done little for unions, American workers, the Judeo-Christian/heterosexual mainstream, or American families. That is why there is a Republican as President. (Aided by a horrible candidate that called mainstream citizens "Deplorables".)

Quote TomDorr "When a "macho" style of American Exceptionalism was bold and strident, and protected Americans", you're hilarious Tom, who kicked whose ass in Vietnam . Recently Iraq and Afghanistan, both illegal wars started by George W Bush and the right wing , both have drained your treasury to the point Americans can't afford to do anything but go deeper in debt, but wasn't that the real game plan Tom, to spend all the money ,Reagans 'starve the beast' so all the social programs would collapse, while at the same time transferring Americas wealth into the pockets of republican corporate doners like Dick Cheney's Halliburton and BlackRock. In the end in Iraq, America couldn't deal with its own body count and turned tail and ran off, then like you Tom hilariously claimed victory. The only victory being of course a once bankrupt Halliburton is flush with billions of your tax dollars. Tom bet you've got no problems with those trillions of tax dollars being spent.

Yes, we had Jim Crow laws and severe racism, but we were also fighting for, and won civil rights and desegregated the military, schools, neighborhoods, businesses and women and gays both found their voice and flexed their muscles. It was called "The Golden Age" because never before had so many had so much. Our problems were many, but we also had the courage to face them and do something about them. Now the racism, sexism, and homophobia have reared their ugly heads again, but the jobs are all gone, our faith in our fellow man is gone, our Christian (or add your own here) ideals are gone. During the Golden Age, we believed in taking care of one another, feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, doctors would care for anyone, regardless of income and we were taught by everyone, "Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you". In 1980 that all went 180 and we have an everyone out for themselves society wich does nobody any good. Not even the wealthy.

Organized Money Is Dangerous To Democracy

The question that is constantly being asked, particularly on the talking heads on television, is "what do the Democrats have to do to regain political power?" What does it take?
