Subsidizing housing for the wealthy, especially members of Congress while denying those who need it most is just one of the cruel realities of the American Dream.
The idea that Congress needs $2500 a month for housing is insulting to most Americans.
This is a really good look at what’s wrong with how we think about our Constitution and our country’s history.
Sure, it was a great start, but it’s no longer working quite the way it should.
It’s time for some changes.
American exceptionalism is at best an innocent mistake that uninformed patriotism makes difficult to surrender.

The only thing which can save America? Mass deportations of non-imigrants.
Let’s get rid of all the American citizens who are not pulling their weight.
Bottom line: So-called real Americans are screwing up America. Maybe they should leave, so that we can replace them with new and better ones: newcomers who are more appreciative of what the United States has to offer, more ambitious for themselves and their children, and more willing to sacrifice for the future. In other words, just the kind of people we used to be — when “we” had just come off the boat.

Drafting bills like the new healthcare bill in secret mean two things. Republicans know it’s wrong and they wish to obscure the involvement of special interests.
As they draft legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Senate Republican leaders are aiming to transform large sections of the American health care system without a single hearing on their bill and without a formal, open drafting session.
That has created an air of distrust and concern — on and off Capitol Hill, with Democrats but also with Republicans.

Besides the climate peril the President has put us in, pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord is a big step toward ceding global leadership to the Chinese.
Trump and his friends are just so stupid and greedy it never ceases to boggle the mind. They just don’t get that we lead by positive example not by military and capitalist might.
Sad. The harm Trump and the GOP are doing will be felt for a long time.
Sadder. Trump’s Russian influence peddling distracts from the greater threat he has exposed us to.

Textbook move when NobodyisFlyingthePlane: misdirection. Watch what this hand is doing so you cant see the other.
Hate for different groups isn’t actually different; we just treat it that way. Pay attention to the anti-Semitic racists on the right, and you’ll miss the real racism.
The various strands of renascent bigotry in Mr. Trump’s America are intertwined, and anti-Semitism is only part of the tapestry. Yet Americans, for good historical reasons, tend to have a particularly heightened sensitivity toward anti-Semitism. All 100 senators signed a letter calling on the Trump administration to take “swift action” against the anti-Semitic bomb threats. There has been no similar political urgency in demanding protection for other harassed minorities.
Why Is This Hate Different From All Other Hate? https://nyti.ms/2nIQTVV
The N.R.A and gun nuts in general are nothing but hypocritical, self serving, fearmongers.
The idea that it needs to be easier to get silencers because gunfire noise is a public health hazard is inconceivable to any rational person. Somehow the irony is lost on gun owners.
