    none of its a good idea.

    but how do you fight against a party that has no respect for democratic norms, WITH democratic norms?

    i dont know the answer, truly. but we can't win a fight for western democracy with one hand tied behind our backs either.

    Well, at a minimum we'll see how many Republican senators actually believe in limiting the power of the executive, or if they're hypocrites on that point as well.

    selling the soul to fascism has gotten them everything they want so far ... why would they stop now?

    Republicans elected a con man to drain the swamp.

    The proposal, which involved enlisting the U.S. nuclear power industry to build nuclear plants across the Middle East, was backed by a group of retired generals who formed a firm called IP3. Flynn described himself in financial disclosure filings as an "advisor" to a subsidiary of IP3, IronBridge Group Inc., from June 2016 to December 2016 * at the same time he was serving as Trump's national security adviser during the presidential campaign and the presidential transition, the report says.

    The report quotes one senior Trump official as saying that the proposal was "not a business plan," but rather "a scheme for these generals to make some money," and added, "OK, you know we cannot do this."
    But her emails!

    i mean what could possibly go wrong with giving the saudis nuclear technology?

    only 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were saudis after all. some i assume were good people.
