Open Thread For September 8, 2017

Rethugs Upset, Dems Wary, About Trump’s Deal With Pelosi And Schumer.  I repeat: He can’t be trusted. Get close to this guy, and you’ll end up getting dirtied.

Why Florida Is So Vulnerable To Irma.  The bad news? Rampant development and climate change. The good news (which is only good in degree)? Florida learned lessons from previous hurricanes, adopted stronger building codes and developed an infrastructure for disaster management. Looks like Mar-A-Lago will survive. And, if history is a guide, Trump will personally pocket insurance payouts.

Report: Russia Has Meddled In Elections Of At Least 27 Countries. Fox and Breitbart are their propaganda purveyors of choice. The real fake news.

Moderate GOP Rep Retiring. Another one. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania. Maybe he’ll pull a ‘Morning Joe’.

Illinois Lt. Governor Candidate Forced Off D Ticket Due To Support Of Israeli Boycott.  A case study in why the D’s suck. Somewhere, Chris Coons is giving an AIPAC lobbyist a high-five.

Court Deals Another Blow To Trump’s Muslim Ban.  Man, if it wasn’t for the courts…

Say Goodbye To The Debt Ceiling?  Good. Holding everything hostage was a GOP gimmick dredged up during the Obama years.

What do you want to talk about?

    From a NYTimes article on economic inequality, in which it is shown that nobody can keep up with The Joneses:

    “When I [the author] used the word “affluent” in an email to a stay-at-home mom with a $2.5 million household income, a house in the Hamptons and a child in private school, she almost canceled the interview, she told me later. Real affluence, she said, belonged to her friends who traveled on a private plane.”

  2. The Delaware Donald says:

    A local GOP party leader will be uncovered for her online nudity and affairs.

  3. A veritable Kreskin. Oh wait, he was a fraud too.

  4. Paul Hayes says:

    Looks like nothing is going to change in Delaware prisons. The governor “limp-wristed” two meaningless proposals to the media stage. It is like watching a jellyfish try to be erect, and about as successful.

  5. alby says:

    These claims of a nude Republican woman are pretty funny, actually. Can you think of a single Republican, man or woman, you’d want to see nude pictures of?

  6. I was running through my mental Rolodex. Nothing popped.

  7. mouse says:

    I kind of like that nasty lawyer on Fox News

  8. chris says:

    Is anyone going to buy and read Hillary Clinton’s book of blame??

  9. RE Vanella says:

    I like this new troll. The nonsense is especially dumb.
