The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

Recommended Posts

As i'm reading through this page of the thread and seeing some of the science tweets when I noticed an ad for https://weareenough2020.org/ and it shows a gloomy picture of a younger person standing in front of a bunch of smoke stacks, with a Nuclear "smoke stack" directly behind him.  

I'll take Biden's take on science every day and twice on Sunday, but scientific ignorance is not a partisan issue unfortunately.

I don't think scientific ignorance is the issue, it's scientific denial.

The link goes to a site with a background that appears to be an oil refinery or similar chemical processing facility, and what is venting from the two large pipes stacks nearest the center is steam from a vessel known as a 'flash pot" where pressurized water flows to reduce pressure and 'flashes' off some of its energy content as steam.  So the plume in the picture is not pollution by any definition. 

Which just goes to the point that scientific illiteracy is not the question, that is a given. It's a question of social credentialing. It's who various segments of the body politic accept as their proxies for interpretation of scientific fact.

You know Trump is just going to fire the IG.

I want the law changed for IG's. They are Independent for a reason. Give them a 6 year term. A president can nominate them, and that's it.

Changed to: A President has NO authority to relieve an IG of duties, but an IG can only be impeached by Congress and requires Senatorial approval of the impeachment. President can make a request or a recommendation, that's it.

Just my 2 cents.

another option would be to not elect criminal morons as presidents

Well, that would definitely help.

But I want some additional protections.

I want Congress and Senate to regain some of their lost powers from the Executive Branch.

If that needs to include Congressional Prisons for subpoena shirkers then so be it. I'm on board with that too.

Man, the talk about death and murder is really ramping up on the right wing, isn’t it?

They can't argue the merits of this administration, or at least not particularly well, so they have to hit the mayhem and the socialism bogeymen as hard as possible.

Agree, and Concern Troll wonders whether this is paving the way for more right-wing shooting events by eroding the already thinning veneer that’s preventing a paranoid armed population from lashing out—particularly since doing so is increasingly being framed as defending themselves.

Basically the only thing keeping them from manslaughter now is that the paperwork might take them away from clicking on all the Facebook memes their friends are sending them.

Along with his Iran Contra history and time as Trump’s henchman my fondest wish is that Barr spend the rest of his days inside Gitmo

Hateful, disgusting people. Every one of them. 

This is feeling like the end of us. We will never be the same again.
