Are you not, or were you running for office at some time? Or do I have you confused with another member?

You should be careful Brother, and I mean that sincerely, as your car might end up in the hands of a "remote" covert operator and end up smashed into a brick wall while you are in it.

Like the majority of you, I'm really disgusted with this. It is unclear to me why Jeff Sessions and/or President Trump are not making more noise. Lawsuits and indictments should be flying but all we get are few tweets from the President and nothing out of the head of the DOJ.

If more aggressive measures are required to clean up the swamp - I'm pissed off enough to participate.

On a side-note, that Dirt Bag Bannon would be palatable if he'd fucking shave and wear some nice clothes. He's just another part of the circus and is the equivalent of Sarah Palin to Trump's White House. At least Sarah looked good playing shit stirrer.

I admit that most of the time this whole shitshow is just amusing to me.

But, occasionally I think about that scene in Saving Private Ryan, where Ryan is standing there looking at the graves of all the men who died just to save him and he is wondering if he lived a life that was worthy of that sacrifice. I think about all those who have died since 2001, and I don't think that we as a Nation have been worthy of that sacrifice. I look at what is happening in DC and I know for a fact that most people there aren't worth it. All those lives lost to protect....this?

That is what makes me truly angry.

I agree and feel the same way. It is depressing at times.

Fubar, I wrote that one out and almost hit delete but figured I’m already on the “rist” (cross thread points). And no I am not running for office; however, I’ve considered entering politics or the arena as a political consultant seeing how some of my family and friends who have done so who are now extremely wealthy but I just can’t sell my soul for extra pieces of silver.

It is very well put. Great description of the lens in which many of us here view this shitshow.

I'm glad that my Grandfathers and my Father who were all Vets are not around to see what has become of this place. Another reason I'm looking forward to moving into my place in the sticks in two weeks.

If I didn't allow myself to be amused by the shit-show, I would have to sit alone in a dark room and cry myself to sleep at night.

There are few Americans left that really earn or deserve the freedoms they enjoy even thought they throw around words like oppression and fascist like confetti. A smarter guy than me said, "the military is at war while the rest of the country is at the mall"

And they are just "reviewing" it.

The people have already lost a lot of faith in the DOJ and the FBI over the past 8 years of Obama. This is just sending it into overdrive. Every day they wait, the more it appears that this may be the tip of the iceberg and they don't want the public to know about the iceberg at any cost.
Agreed, and there are few things as scary, when you start to think how this country could be fundamentally changed forever, than a completely politicized FBI and DOJ, filled with true believers from the far left, who are not afraid to use the immense power they hold, to facilitate that change.

I'm glad I'm 50 and don't give a fuck about dying. If I was 20 I'd be scared to death right now about the direction things are taking.

After the war, Churchill supposedly said that the Nazis would return one day, but they come back as anti-fascists.

I've heard drinking helps. I don't drink (much) so, just don't sleep much.
Still waiting for vegas answers. LOL!
