    Etc.

    So, IMO, Trump has exactly fuck all chance of passing a law of sweeping deregulation "reforms".
    Trump can't pass anything so you are right about that.

    I think the jury is still out on that question. Nixon was certainly smarter than Trump and less impulsive. He also had a sense of shame, ultimately. Has or will Trump use his power as president to protect himself from the results of illegal decisions he's made? We don't know the answer to that question yet.

    I wish Trump was the Devil because there is no Devil.

    Too bad the left hasn't learned from that flip off.

    You'll probably get another until you do.

    I'm practicing for the duration of the Trump era. Just like during and since Reagan, the homeless numbers will be skyrocketing even further. It's the natural result of a GOP presidency.

    I worked for a couple of bosses who were as mean as the devil so I kind of understand what you mean, although I didn't have to feed and cloth them.
