The Twitter usage is unbelievable. These cabinet selections are beginning to get scary. With this cabinet and this Congress.... extreme policy could alter our country for decades. Wow this is disappointing.

But, but, we have NOTHING to worry about when it comes to the EPA and pollution, or so I was told for months and months.....this is an f'n disaster.

 

Sadly, the health consequences won't show up while the GOP is in control, and they'll be able to blame liberals.

 

As for union bashing, the proletariat has already been brain washed that unions are evil.......so not sure that matters on the negative side, but it might actually help unions if he does it enough.

These appointments are indeed troubling.  But, and this doesn't help at all really, the people we really have to be scared of are the ones in Congress.

The House votes to impeach.The House is controlled by Republicans.Won't happen.

It depends on the reason, republicans are hopeful on Trump but will turn on him quick if he doesn't act like a Republican or follow the law.If The Democrats are virtually 100% it wouldn't take many Republicans.I could easily see more then 50% of Republicans turning on him after-all Republicans like Mike Pence and he has a record to earn that.

I want to coin a new illness: It is called "Trumpimia"

 

I have it, and everyday I throw up a little bit when I read his tweets or see his appointments.

 

In a few months I will probably be at my high school weight and have no teeth left.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

If you want to end up hospitalized just do a twitter search for "Trump" and see the responses of his hard core supporters.  They are rationalizing any of the Russian interference as a positive thing because it got Trump elected, and Putin will be a great friend because he is a strong man who get things done. Funny how the GOP who used the red scare for decades in their campaigning, now just turn a blind eye when it suits their need.  Party before country.

 

I might just go into denial and avoid reality for awhile and spend my time in the Brian Dozier thread.

Trump is a modern day example of mob rule. As long as he maintains the favor of the alt right mob (and in general conservatives) then republicans can't touch him.

Is 2016 2017 2018 the year that a good pitching prospect is truly blocked by 5 good pitchers in the starting rotation?

I have to think there's going to be a pretty big push to start calling the "alt-right" for what they are, white nationalists or neo-Nazis or something. I can't imagine mainstream Republicans are going to stand for that, they already tried to distance themselves from that during the primaries, are they really going to be OK taking on those labels if they become widely used?
