    uh....

    I'm guessing your handle is truth in advertising. That, or you really have to work on clarifying what you are saying here.

    Darling, you didn't use canned salmon, did you?

    •  I am pretty sure that the point was... (5+ / 0-)

      ...that the GOP doesn't hesitate to politicize tragedies, while the Dems do (to their detriment).

      Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.

        This is what hollowdweller meant.  The GOP's main purpose is to dwell on fake "scandals" to discredit the Dems---especially the POTUS.  They don't care/want to pass needed legislation like equal pay, immigration policy, extended unemployment, so they try to distract the public from the fact that they're working against instead of for us.  

        And, no, Dems don't do this.  I like to think we're above such dirty tactics, but sometimes I WOULD like to do a little fighting fire with fire.  Intellectually I know it's a waste of time but am tired of always being on the receiving end.

        I got seriously POed yesterday when I saw Tulsi Gabbard's name on the list of Dems that voted for the IRS BS investigation.  I wrote her an outraged email telling her I don't vote for Blue Dog Dems, so she better straighten up and do the job I elected her to do.  

        Tried to write Trey Gowdy but I don't come from the right zip code.  Is it normal for members of Congress to only accept emails for their district?  Anybody have experience with that?

          Peter DeFazio is the same way.  He is Oregon's one and only Republican representative - and acts like it.

          When I wrote to all of Oregon's congressmen about an issue he responded by saying that I'm not in his district so my opinion didn't matter.  In more diplomatic language, of course, but the meaning was clear.

            be saying "Howdy" to Gowdy.  He probably would've blocked my email after the first one, anyway.  

            I'm SO tired of politics but feel like I have to stay aware.  I won't be around for much longer, but I have two kids and a grandson and would like to leave them with a decent government and environment.  Or at least die trying!
