Trumpcare failed because....?

Sure , for a mixture reasons.

The Koch Brothers have wanted an outright repeal. End of story, And some of the Freedom Caucus presumably did too.  Maybe even because that´s what the Kochies wanted, 

And out of  whatever personal characteristic I want to  believe- and do- that  some Republicans are simply decent people who while marching in lock step were still   nursing a secret hope their team would fail. 

And , finally , some have the drunk the kool aid and believe the party line: That Ryancare would be an improvement. 

¨ Imagine a summer evening if you please

with music underneath the trees"

....begin some Noel Coward lyrics from ¨ Conversation Piece ¨  and end  


Men and women , superbly clad ,stroll

sip tea ,

¨and lightly discuss their monarch ...who is mad¨.

More specifically, raved for 58 hours. Sound familiar?

Like Trump. Not    ¨idiosyncratic ¨    Mad.

I don´t use these terms  casually -a family member  is institutionalized- but soon for his own sake and that

of the country Trump must be stripped of his authority.

Sometimes Trump ´s right department

¨While Panasonic is the world ´s largest supplier of electric vehicle batteries globally, China ´s BYD and  CATL were just behind , according to figures collated by Bernstein ,the research group...............

In 2015 in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing,South Korea ´s LG  Chem opened a battery factory. The same year Samsung SDI followed suit. opening a plant in Xian in central  China and declaring that it would "forge  its foothold in the world'ś biggest  new energy vehicle market ¨. 

Just some numbers

             Presidential popular votes                    Elected to state assemblies                                                                   in millions

Trump's right.

We shouldn't import anything .

Not if we can make it here.

The things that we can make but don't,  we should  resume making here.

This obscenely rich country shouldn't  have 50,000 homeless in NYC tonight. In 2018 that should be

5,000.  And 45,000 people should be making replacements for the Toyotas we won't be buying.

That is the only way we can make America a country that is great for the working class. We can't Globalize our way to full employment. We have to import- replace our way there.

Senator Warren forced not to quote Coretta King

Around 9 30 pm Senator Warren, speaking  as part of the Democrat's opposition to  Sessions ,  attempted to provide relevant information about the 1986 Senate's  decision to reject him as a federal judge. After reading Senator Kennedy's  86 statement   she attempted to do the same with Coretta Scott King's 86 letter of opposition.

That's what did it?

During the campaign I thought Trump's chances would be affected by his "Grab a little pussy"  chat.

Or by has cheerfully agreeing  to allow Ivanka to be called on national TV " a nice piece of ass".

Or by the video of him in Australia humiliating Miss Australia  for not meeting his plane.

I was right,  It probably got him elected.

This is not a rehearsal

It’s the way things are going to be from now on. Theoretically two minority members are supposed to be present when a senate committee forwards a Presidential cabinet nominee to the full senate.Except when they aren’t. This past week.

Supposedly it takes  60 votes to stop a filibuster.   Think a Democrats filibuster will prevent  the approval of about- -to- be Justice Gorsuch?  Along with believing in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy.

How could this have happened?

That's easy.   Bernie ran and Hillary lost.Take Pennsylvania for example


                                        PA      Election results in thousands
