This famous scenario is not a clinical definition of insanity (insanity takes so many forms), but most people grasp that it indicates at least one form of insanity: Doing the same thing while expecting different results.

I'm sure Liz is well aware that there are many people (including Republicans in Congress as well as the Traitor Tot) who have NO concept of duty or obligation or doing one's job. However, I think she's wise to discuss these things as though they were fully understood by everyone - because they certainly SHOULD be.

So glad to hear her explain "wealth tax" as a form of "property tax," EXACTLY like the tax I pay on my home every blessed year. Because that's what it is. Who doesn't understand that? Renters? Well, they are not and would not be affected.

OT: Nice that Lawrence can pronounce "Kamala." Not a surprise, though. He does his homework.

RESIST AND PERSIST!

After Nanny Nancy devastated Dinky Donnie Poopy Pants, by taking away his favorite TV cartoon (himself) for his wall tantrum, Dinky Donnie caved-in. Now people are laughing at him. He’s red in the face. His full diapers stink. And he’s much too narcissistic to care about anything but his own bruised ego. He’s threatening, and he just might do it again.

Good show, good points, Ms. Warren. I read that he may do it again re: the shutdown. What in god's green earth is he doing for the people???
Don't answer that....he's not doing a dam thing for the good for us, it's what media attention he gets, and his 'look at me' attitude. jeez!

I actually am more worried he will do this again and then not "cave" because of all the negative press coverage....or he will start a war somewhere in the interim.......

I believe he only opened the government up so he could do The State of the Union in Congress. I fully expect him to try to close it down again. Hopefully, I'm wrong! ty TomCat

Well--whatever he does, the power has shifted! Not a lot but noticeably and it'll be interesting to see where it goes.

meme: I put nothing past him, revenge has long been his meme!
O'Donnell: "Sorry" is not in Drumph's vocabulary, and if he tries to mouth it, or something like it, watch for his eyeballs to rotate to the top of his wig.  I will not be watching.  Warren's quote, thank you Nameless, is about, among other things, how NO ONE of us is an island unto her/himself, and did it all all alone.  The survivalists think they can do it?  I hope they never have to find out.  I think Warren is fabulous!
'Toon: Sorry, not even my nether parts want anything to do with that ugliest of feces, oops, faces.

As English isn’t my native language, and because I’m catching up more on the Aussie colloquium than on the American these days, I had to look up ‘wonk’ to catch your meaning, TomCat:

wonk

NOUN
NORTH AMERICAN
informal
derogatory
a studious or hard-working person.
“any kid with an interest in science was a wonk”
synonyms:
hard worker · toiler · workhorse · Stakhanovite · galley slave · [more]
a person who takes an excessive interest in minor details of political policy.
“he is a policy wonk in tune with a younger generation of voters”
nautical slang
an incompetent or inexperienced sailor, especially a naval cadet.

I guess the nautical slang is not in order here 😁, but the ‘nerd’ type of explanations are. I can see where they’re coming from, and it’s something that Hilary Clinton had in her too. Both are very smart women, but I find that Liz is very capable of toning down her wonkiness and make herself understandable to all. She has the smarts and the class of an Obama, but there’s little she can do about sounding and looking like your spinster aunt. In general, Americans prefer to look and listen to the easy-going-ness of TV personalities, and Liz just hasn’t got that.

I agree with so many others that he has something evil up his sleeve. He never does anything for others except to torture them. He's already saying that he knows that the Democrats aren't going to satisfy him. When I think of this past year, what can he possibly have to speak about at his State of the Union?? I certainly can't come up with anything that he did that was a benefit for our people or country... Can you??
If he does another shutdown again, our country is going to go bankrupt. That goes for all of the people who personally will suffer again because of his heartless moves.
Thanks TomCat

What is the definition of a "terror attack"?

"Enemies foreign and domestic" Sabotage the economy, handicap and disable Americas public safety. Demotivate and sow distrust from with in the federal government. Breed resentment in the federal governments employees.

All presented to you courtesy of foreign investors and perpetrated by a malignant Administration and Senate. What they don't realize is that once they undermine this democracy there will no longer be a safe haven for their laundered rubles.

When elected to public office, those elected MUST represent all of the people in the jurisdiction, not just those who voted for the candidate.  In Trump's case, that is all of the people in the US.  But that is not what he is doing.  By shutting down the government for 35 days and holding 800,000 employees, and the country, hostage, Trump is neglecting his responsibilities.  To contemplate this again if the traitorous, tantruming toddler does not get his way for his border wall is absolutely outrageous.  Reports have it that Trump thinks there is less than a 50% chance that those tasked with coming up with a solution will do so by the February 15 deadline.  At that point, he will shut down the government again promising to blame Democrats this time.  What is particularly galling is that, from what I have been reading, the intelligence community is not that interested in the southern border, but about other areas.  As Warren said, the wall is a monument to Trump who needs his ego stroked continually.  The real terrorist is in the WH and heads a party of terrorists that so far condone his actions.  I wonder if Republicans will have the cojones  to deny Trump a second shutdown by voting with Democrats?

I was reading earlier that Mick Mulvaney is arranging campaign rallies for 2020 to keep Trump occupied because that is what Trump enjoys.  Unlike John Kelley, Mulvaney is keeping Trump's schedule light in the mornings to give him TV time (that's when the cartoons are on!) and does not restrict anyone's access to him --- in short, he doesn't try to manage him as Kelly did.  So with that in mind, who the hell is the president? . . . and why is Trump being paid a president's salary?  Trump is a gigantic failure as a president and a human being.

Resit, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Such great comments here, hard to add anything,.... But, I'd say all those who are speculating the 'worst' are seeing how dangerous this 'empty shell of a person' RumpleSnakeSkin has been, and we are right to presume he always will be. I wouldn't put anything passed him, either, - so, I am praying that those in the political playing field are doing all that they can to shut down this dangerous ego - who'd do anything to prove his power. Anything. God help us.

It’s no longer a “wall” - the R’s are spinning it as a protective deterrent or not necessarily a physical barrier. It will morph into something palatable to many, with some meaningful DACA protection. Mango Mutant will declare victory, Ann Coulter will love him again, and Nancy will wink. Great tv ratings.

I won’t watch the State of the Union, since I prefer my fairy tales in book form. But I will watch Stacey Abrams’ reply. Good choice.

"Wall of Vanity Vanity Vanity" - all is vanity. Let's all hope things move in the more palatable direction as you describe, Debra~ I'd enjoy seeing that 'wink' from Pelosi, - coming from the tv set into my living room.

All i remember is that it's a TEMPORARY back to normal for Congress, as acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said another shutdown is a strong possibility....... !!!

NO DOUBT!
