If they’d just let Dear Leader have his inaugural parade with tanks and guys in helmets the way he wanted maybe we could have avoided the National Day of Patriotic Devotion. But probably not.

We’ve already seen it with TPP and there are indications that Trump might align with Sanders et. al. when it comes to negotiating prescription drug prices.

You Republicans realize that he is probably deranged, right? I hope so, because if/when he crosses some line you are going to have to stop him before it’s too late. Nobody else can. You should get a plan in place now because when you need it you will need it fast.

Trump said in his inaugural that the crime and carnage stops here and now…but I see that promise has been broken—local news reported on 3 murdered near Greenbriar Mall the other night
