I think tax reform is in the offing.
tax reform....good idea....everybody pays a little, that will make it easier for the 1% to pay a lot...they are going to anyway, might as well soothe their wounds a little. first a little kiss, then drop the hammer.

if white people prefer white people, and black people prefer black people, are both racist?

Neither is racist if they don't believe they are superior as a human being to humans of other races because of the race they belong to.

Don't you long for a President that shows up at the oval office once in a while to work? This guy is all over the place, but never at work.

yes, they underestimated him by 47%
Yes, a good clue that Republicans don't understand or care about nearly 50% of the Americans they wish to govern. They are lucky eough to bamboozle many of the others.

Sounds like plan, IG, even though I personally would be hurt a little.

Maybe, but I think it's not so much whom one prefers, but what hostility one expresses toward the other guys.

Still, I think things would be a lot better if we didn't base our preferences on skin color, but on individual characteristics. That's why I have my personal rainbow coalition.

I'm butting in to say, some of my best friends are white people, despite the facts that they have drab pale skin, shrimpy noses, and can't jump.

Sure, if Republicans have a change of heart and respond to their interests. But then, they might become Democrats.

Doesn't matter to me. Whites, Blacks, Latinos, and Asians have worked for me. We all got together for picnics and dinners. Had friends from all groups and we all hung out together. Just human beings from different cultures that I came to know and appreciate.

The banks and Wall Street are still carrying on like nothing happened, still trading derivatives and credit default swaps.

They are still using shareholder and depositors money to trade in risky investments and trades.

Problems with fracking?

No, just a few earthquakes in Alabama, Ohio, Texas, Virginia.

Flaming faucets in Colorado,New York and Pennsylvania.

Happening where these type of things didn't happen before drilling was allowed.

Citizens United and tax reform?

Not that ANY president by himself could do anything about these and others but at least he should be pushing for change.

Not just pushing for higher taxes for the top 2% but real reform of the entire system.

But he will need help and lots of it.

In these times, he might have better luck in Vegas.

I believe you are right, everybodys leaving the R party and flocking to the Dem's...nobody wants to be associated with a loser...I may even have to swallow my pride and switch teams. I can probably handle drinking starbucks and driving a hybrid, but I draw the line at recycling and shopping at Whole Foods using cloth grocery bags.

Stupid people are gloating over a win by stupid people. And the stupids are running things, stupidly.

Which is still an improvement over the time GWB got elected.
