It's becoming more obvious they are just interested in tearing everything down. They just want to ruin everything for everyone else. Tick tock, the election is quickly coming.

At some point each day there's always a thread to post that telling the truth is the only real crime to the GOP

Reality has a liberal bias and conservatives hate biased people, donchaknow?
 
2020-05-02 10:28:09 AM  
And the resultant widespread government incompetence will be used as evidence that governments are inherently inefficient and therefore taxes and services should be slashed to the bone.

Incorrect. They hate people not being biased in their favor.

is it though? Mapril was the equivalent of at least 6 months. at this rate, November will be here in 3 years.

just begin Civil War already, we've seen all the trailers.

vudukungfu: Not impeachable, apparently


Just because of those SELFISH, GREEDY OLD COOTS in the senate want to keep their jobs since they know that the "base" in the southern and flyover state love his bullying, and it gets the bumpkin and racist GOP votes.

Damn you guys should have let the south go in the civil war.  They are a millstone around your necks.

Too bad. The minority decided and people just sort of went with it, so now it's here to stay, apparently. Dunno about Nov. Looking at the Republicans right now they look a lot like the Liberation Ruiling parties in several african nations that would straight up start civil wars if they lost elections (and would usually go as far as straight up murder with those elections to win).

He despises competency because he is actively trying to create a kleptocratic stooge state. This is not news
Accountability is anathema
 
2020-05-02 10:44:12 AM  
We definitely need to replace this Trump guy, it's too bad the only choice is another handsy septuagenarian who was too friendly with China.

I think getting fired by Trump is not a bad thing to have on your resume, if everyone knows you got fired just for making him look bad.
 
2020-05-02 10:45:16 AM  
I've wondered how long any government employee is safe if he gets elected again. I could imagine a world where he tries to shiat can the entire civilian workforce. If a big enough contractor lobbied him or one of his cronies in the right way it wouldn't surprise me if we got the old axe, unions be damned. He's already proven he can do whatever he wants.

Trump showed us all the cracks in the system. On the 50/50 chance we manage to get him out of office, we're going to have to rebuild the country and account for the threat of another Trump.
 
2020-05-02 10:53:39 AM  
Implicit in this firing is the fact that even as he nears the end of his term Donald Trump does not have even the simplest inkling of a shadow of an idea that the job of the federal government is to serve and protect the American people, not just the folks that live in caves who spend their days drawing pictures of hunting mammoths on the cave walls, but ALL of the American people.

There are too many good reasons to dump Trump to list, but near the top of that list will be finally freeing the country from his incessant chant of "me, me, me!"  Most Americans were happy to change the channel when the Apprentice until the GOP strapped the country to a table with our eyes forced open like that Droog Alex, forced to watch Trump's lunacy 24-7.
 
2020-05-02 10:54:49 AM  
It's too bad that firings like this can't be appealed and the victim allowed to sue for wrongful termination. These are people's careers he is farking with.
 
2020-05-02 10:56:42 AM  
He literally said he wanted to destroy the administrative state. He literally ran on wiping out countless federal jobs. This is what a large minority in America supports. Talk to them, not to us.
 
2020-05-02 10:57:58 AM  
The people he does hire are diametrically opposed to their role.  Secretary of Education?  A religious bigot.  Secretary of Energy?  A Texan who doesn't understand what the Secretary of Energy does.  Secretary of whatever it is Ben Carson is the secretary of?  A black person who doesent understand homelessness.

At some point, democrats are going to have to staple their balls back on and admit the plainly obvious truth that the Republican party is a terrorist organization.

Ben Carson is the secretary of Housing and Urban Development. I has "urban" right there in the title, so of course it would be the only black man in the administration.

It's almost as though someone to whom Donald Trump owes money has tasked him with dismantling the US federal government or something.

but this handsy old dude knows he's a tired handsy old dude. Thats why his vp pick is critical. We won't elect a woman, for some reason. The chances of his vp getting the reins are extremely high. My fantasy of the world, Biden is running because Obama asked him to. People equate Biden with Obama. Biden wins, does his job for a very short period of time and then for health reasons he passes power on to his VP. In his young strong VP becomes president and starts kicking the living s*** out of everything walking in Washington DC and turns this thing upside down. One of the first things they need to do is create a department of Homeland terrorism. Because it's going to happen. If Trump loses, watch and see. These redneck well-armed quote-unquote militias are going to lose their s*** if Trump loses.

So you guys are turning on him already? It took six years for you cowards to disavow Bush. I guess things do move faster now.

Reality has proven we need progressive policies in place and this upset many liberals.

He's one of those people who simply eliminates from his personal circle anyone who tells him anything he doesn't want to hear. Apparently Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson used to do the same thing - anyone who warned them about their excesses got shown the door.

As President, he gets a lot of advice from people who tell him "You can't do that." Only now he's doing it in public.

It's a miracle Fauci still has a job.

It's not about about competence, it's about loyalty. So long as you're loyal to Trump rather than your oath to the Constitution, you get to stay.

With an incompetent stooge who, rather than objectively administer oversight, will actively work to cover up/minimize any damage done?

Any and all trump appointees are poison and should be flushed from our government when he leaves. Well, with very few exceptions, perhaps. Fauci is growing on me.
