Which position?

WASHINGTON — The Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos on Tuesday as education secretary, approving the embattled nominee only with the help of a historic tiebreaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence.

The 51-to-50 vote elevates Ms. DeVos — a wealthy donor from Michigan who has devoted much of her life to expanding educational choice through charter schools and vouchers, but has limited experience with the public school system — to be steward of the nation’s schools.
FUCK EVERYTHING.

I'm so f*cking pissed off right now it's not even funny. This is the single worst decision since election night. There have been more reckless decisions such as Bannon but this right here is without a doubt one of the most corrupted money hungry f*cking evil goddamn worst decisions I've ever seen. Spineless f*cking John McCain and Rand Paul. F*ck you two forever. You chickensh*ts.

FUCK

Very smart move for the Republicans, our public education system is too effective as it is and that's a threat to the future of the GOP.

If you compare their attitudes and actions like most people who believe that statement instead of zeroing in on policy differences then it's a pretty solid point imo.

elphenor 02-07-2017 03:30 PM

From my eyes policy is the only thing that matters

The one action that counts is how they vote and the difference is clear

Some interesting observations on the political polarization that culminated in Trump's election.

Word is Spicer is on the way out. Trump doesn't think he's defending his alternative facts well enough in front of the press.

And in other news, more stoking of fear.....

So huge department store chain Nordstroms decides to drop Ivanka Trump's brands from all stores citing declining sales.

Trump tweets: My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!

Sean Spicer during today's press briefing says: "I think this is less about his family's business and an attack on his daughter," Spicer said. "He ran for president. He won. He's leading this country. I think for people to take out their concern about his actions or his executive orders on members of his family, he has every right to stand up for his family and applaud their business activities, their success."

A lot of Trump's supporters are pushing for boycotts of Nordstrom.

Questions:

1. Both Trump and his daughter were suppose to divest their interests in their personal businesses. So why is Trump so upset?

2. Should the President of the US use his position of power to try and influence the success or failure of a publically traded company based on purely personal reasons and out of spite?

3. Whatever happened to make America great again. Nordstrom employs 72,500 people here in the US. What if the boycott takes hold and some of those people end up losing their jobs.

Oh, and T.J Maxx, Marshalls, and Neiman Marcus are starting to follow suit with Ivanka's brands. Get ready to fire up your Twitter Donald.

DwnWthVwls 02-08-2017 08:33 PM

Better question: Why is this even getting publicity? There are so many more important things to worry about, but once again bullshit petty problems will make the headlines and detract from actual issues.

It's brilliant.

Right? I think Trump is half unstable, half attempting to drive media focus in directions he can handle (for lack of a better word).

elphenor 02-08-2017 09:06 PM

One has to wonder if this hasn't always been his strategy

This has the potential to be a big problem if it becomes a habit with any US business who dares blink the wrong way at Trump. Once again "unprecedented.

So what did Trump do to piss China off? I remember reading about how they said something along the lines of "War with the US is becoming more of a reality" or something.

China tells Donald Trump, USA to lift its game

Quote:

The Global Times, a provocative but state-sanctioned Chinese newspaper, countered that “unless Washington plans to wage a large-scale war in the South China Sea, any other approaches to prevent Chinese access to the islands will be foolish”.

“Tillerson had better bone up on nuclear power strategies if he wants to force a big nuclear power to withdraw from its own territories,” the unbylined opinion piece suggested.

“If Trump’s diplomatic team shapes future Sino-US ties as it is doing now, the two sides had better prepare for a military clash.”

Lucem Ferre 02-09-2017 12:04 AM

China says they don't want to either because we all have a lot to lose from it. I hope Trump doesn't see how far he can push them.

Stephen 02-09-2017 06:09 AM

Thing that worries me about Trump is if his narcissism clouds his judgement and he decides he's so brilliant he couldn't possibly lose a war things could get real ugly.

Chula Vista 02-09-2017 06:21 PM

What did Trump do now? Trump got.....

DENIED

Unanimous decision by the 3 judges. I skimmed over the decision and they make some rock solid arguments, citing points over and over again where the Constitution supercedes a President's power to basically do whatever he wants.

And they list dozens of case law and precedent - which will be difficult for Trump's lawyers since what Trump's trying to do is...... wait for it......

Unprecedented.

Frownland 02-09-2017 06:23 PM

Got a good source for the decision/arguments? I started reading something on NPR last night and didn't end up finishing it for whatever reason and I'm still pretty unsure of how his order was unconstitutional (even though I vehemently disagree with it).

Anteater 02-09-2017 06:27 PM

I don't think his order violates the constitution either. After all, Obama managed to justify a ban of his own for "security" reasons half a decade ago. Regardless of how justified Obama made it seem back then, why weren't the courts up in arms about it?

Rather long but the conclusions toward the end are really strong.
