    Trump’s White House Website Takes Down Official Pages on Civil Rights, Climate Change, LGBT Rights

    This is NOT ok. It's extremely alarming.

    Wealthiest country in the history of earth, at it absolute peak, somehow believes it must ask it's poorest citizens accept less so that we can give more to its wealthiest.  Well done Koch brothers.

    I've mentioned this before, but I have MS.  Due to my condition, I am disabled, and therefore have Medicare.  My husband works full-time, but the company he works for is small, so doesn't offer a group medical plan - he has Obamacare coverage.
    I am terrified of what these new tax laws/healthcare cuts will mean my husband and I in the future.

    Sorry to vent - I'm just so horrified by all of this!  The people who voted to pass the 'Donor Relief Act of 2017' are on the wrong side of history.  Greed, and Party Before Country won last night, and I guess I had too much faith that common decency and some semblance of compassion would win out in the end, because today ... I'm just so disheartened.   :(
  • U.S. Politics Part 5: Same old Thread...Just New.

    The comments that Trump made yesterday were ironically on Alexandre Hamilton's birthday...a guy from a 'shithole' country, who I'd say left his mark on history in a good way.
    I'm going to apologize in advance, because this is totally off topic, but the musical Hamilton is SO GOOD!  I own the soundtrack, and listen to it all the time!  I actually got to see it while I was in Chicago, and I admit that I was bit nervous that it wouldn't live up to the hype, that it couldn't possibly be as good as I had built up in my head.  You guys ... not only was it as good as I imagined, it was *better*!  It. Was. Amazing.
    Ok, rant over.  Sorry about that.  But check out Hamilton!  You'll be glad you did!   :)
  • Which fictional death affected you most? (Spoilers for everything ever)

    Two different shows, but I think for me it's a tie between Wallace and Hodor.

    Meant to post this yesterday.  This was from my memories on Facebook from last year.  This is how 45 spent his first day in office!

  • This Is Us - Season 2

    My method of viewing doesn't have next week's previews, so I haven't seen them.  That's interesting that they're going to get into the Miguel thing!
