    Along with globalization, presented to us as inevitable--which perhaps it is, given the ruling class--is the privatization (and monetization) of nearly everything, which degrades all it touches.
  2. Trump is opposed to everything I care about, so...

    Trump is opposed to everything I care about, so choosing one defining interest to vote against would be difficult, but I'd say the overwhelming stench of naked greed and corruption would loom large....

    When he's not speaking and acting like he wants to be Thug in Chief. Uncouth doesn't touch what he is.
    Surely, we've reached bottom.

    I respect Eisenhower, and Nixon had his moments. W should have been the baseball commissioner, which was his dream; he surrounded himself with a bunch of warmongers, and history won't forget that....

    I can't figure out Lindsey Graham's lightning-fast about face on Trump. Kompromat or the worst case of Acquired Sycophancy Syndrome ever?

    Yikes! What happened to jeans and flannel? I have a Portland friend who pretty much dresses in tie-dye and Grateful Dead tribute shirts, but I didn't realize it was a requirement. I've got the thrift...

    I think Putin is the chief architect and beneficiary of all the chaos he's created. I'm sure he finds it all very amusing--Brexit, Steve Bannon and his Traveling Bund, and Trump's deranged tweeting....

    And he's not concerned about Isis escapees--they'll just go back to Europe, after all.
    At this point, he's blown up all our alliances, save his personal ones with various dictators.

    You're right--the vote isn't necessary, per the Constitution. Personally, I see no reason not to take one, but I trust Nancy Pelosi's judgment on this.
