Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”.

It’s almost like the modern GOP has ALWAYS been a haven for racist stupid dickfaces!

Someone said it very succinctly up thread or in the CV thread:  Trump is not focused on national disaster affecting us.  He is focused on a reelection disaster affecting him.  

Trump, Fox , OANN and his propaganda machine are laying the groundwork to loosen things up next week.  It is going to take corporate America and the state and local governments to say "No."  Good luck.  

Governments are already saying it--schools are out, universities are out, agencies are teleworking and showing that work can be done remotely. The total infected increasing are going to make them look foolish if they even try and since people still have to be elected, why would politicians create their own self destruct ads?    Vote for me--I'll get you to work without healthcare, even when you're potentially terminally ill and a threat to your families.

My only hope is that this was a trial balloon today by the Trump team.  They'll get a massive backlash from the Republican governors and others in the party, then he'll show up tomorrow or Wednesday saying it was never his idea to loosen things up and we were misconstruing his words.  One can hope.

This, it's easier for Trump to sweep away a million plus deaths than for the local mayor or judge to minimize 100 deaths locally that could have been prevented.  They are smart enough to see this.  I think there will be more than enough to defy trump when the time comes.

This. He gave the religious nuts a voice. Palin was a symptom of that. McCain wanted Democrat Joe Lieberman as his running mate but if you want to win as a Republican then you've got to appeal to the evangelicals. Thats how we got Palin. That's how we got Pence. That's also how we got George W. Bush. And if you said Palin then you must have slept through his shitshow of a presidency.

That was a big turning point too. And laid the groundwork for the GOP becoming the party of the Confederates. Nixon was a corrupt, paranoid, megalomaniacal demagogue. But at least he still respected science and education and ran a secular administration. Part of what has hurt the GOP is all the people who thought Nixon got a raw deal, people like Dick Cheney. People who want to continue to expand presidential powers (as long as it's a Republican president).

I still give the award to the "Reagan Revolution." That's when they abandoned science and education in favor of magical thought. They could've recovered from Nixon. They didn't. And once they brought the religious nuts in it was all over.

Same place where everyone gets tested as soon as they get off the plane, or maybe aboard one of those ships they're bringing to a port near you.  Or just go and get tested at one of the hospitals and centers that are so prevalent and available to every American.

Well they don't have to worry about an overwhelmed health care system not being able to care for them or put them on a vent, like the rest of us do.

They know that no matter what, they will be fine. They will be taken care of medically if it happens to them, they will be taken care of financially after it goes to shit. The only thing they have to do is keep the grift going.

No. If he had any capacity to do that, they never would have followed him in the first place. You've gotta brainwash them from birth to get them to even pretend to like Jesus's message one day each week.

What you have to remember is that people wanted to be called African-American, gay people were afforded equal protection under the law, brown people walked around speaking different, and women complained about stuff.

Damn, that may be the greatest gif ever. How quick witted is the drummer? Good work, kid. 

The smallpox blankets above: just pure evil. Or, as Stephen Miller puts it, “The feel good story of the winter!” 

I caught a bit of Trump’s briefing today, and he echoed the “let’s not bash Asian Americans” concept he trial ballooned in a tweet. OK, we won’t do what you started and fueled. And I wonder what finally happened to get him to change his tune?

If you told me 15 years ago that I would vote straight D in the 2016 election, I would have asked you what year do I suffer my traumatic brain injury. 

But alas... 

I will go back to the Republican Party if and when they exterminate every last Tea Party / Palinite / Trumpkin anti-intellectual from their rolls. 

The introduction of Sarah Palin gave me grave concern about the future of the party. The introduction of DJT confirmed it. 

I was a pretty solid Republican until Sarah Palin came along. It was the reason I didn't vote for McCain.

It’s survival of the species. Homo Sapiens are pack animals. If the pack benefits from reckless behavior of the elderly, then the packs with reckless elderly could have their progeny thrive. You’d see traits of that pack carried on.
