I'm honestly pissed that they would fire McCabe 2 days before his retirement, thus not allowing him to collect his pension. Trump is going to fuck this man over on his retirement for spite? As Pixie said...fuck Trump.

I just read that he may be able to get his pension if someone in Congress hired him for 2 days - and a democrat Congressman has already reached out to him. I really hope this happens, just to piss Trump off.

Yeah...that was a stupid thing to say and believe.

I wish Trump was at that level of stupid.

It is such a shit show here.  I knew Trump would be a disaster.  I am not sure I expected it to be this level of bad.  Which is pretty incredible since I had really, really, really low expectations for Trump.

What I did not expect was for this administration to fundamentally attack the US Constitution the way it has.  I am genuinely becoming worried that I am watching the beginnings of the Constitution being broken down.

I would say "we are" but then I remind myself that the Constitution is a sturdy ol' lass and the US has been through some pretty trying times over the last 2.5 centuries and generally comes out okay in the end.

wouldn't it be nice if certain amendments weren't so sturdy and could be ripped off and melted in a volcano to never be seen again.

its been discussed before, but if the 2nd amendment was .. changed, and a culture change, then you could be like the rest of the world.  Just because something gets written down doesn't mean it will always be 100% right forever.

eg, what if they got an amendment in in the early 2000s that marriage is only between a man and a women for example.

There are provisions for changing the US Constitution.  Should it be easy?  No.  If it were then someone like Trump would have long ago ripped the document apart.  The US Constitution is a thing of beauty.  Flawed? Sure; but it is rightfully held up as a blueprint for how to build a government. 

I personally think it is one of the most important documents in human history.  It is at the core of what I consider to be the United States Ethos.  Sadly there are many who want to undo many of the provisions.  Trump has been on the attack against the constitution from day one.  His most obvious conflict with the document comes down to the Emoluments Clause.  Aside from that he has been attacking freedom of the press and speech.  He attacks our Court system.  I could go on and on sadly.

I personally believe that the Second Amendment is being twisted and misinterpreted.  I personally believe it should be repelled.  That said, I do not believe it should be easy to do.

totally predictable response by trump to stevens' op-ed the other day (wrt to repealing the 2nd amendment). pretty sure stevens has said similar things in the past. i agree with him, but statements like that seem to unify opposition more than anything else. otoh, since nothing significant's getting done or is even likely to get done anyway, maybe promoting repeal as an idea not outside the mainstream isn't so bad... who knows.

edit: btw, yesterday standing was recognized for the plaintiffs in one of the lawsuits against trump wrt his emolument violations. this was the hurdle for the previous cases.

Trump’s allies worry that federal investigators may have seized recordings made by his attorney

ROFL

hope this pans out.

OMG!  If that is true it would loltastic.

They must have had some pretty damn convincing evidence to get the warrant to raid the President's lawyer. 

What a shit show.

The new Comey book is going to have them all in a frenzy for awhile too.
