As long as you have sorted out who "the problem" is, we can all relax.

Not sure what to say other than you obviously dont agree with the majority of the press saying Mueller was shambolic at best and ruined the Dem's chance of impeachment?

I have been telling you for years that I don't blindly follow what I hear in the media.

Shambolic?? LOL, no, they are saying it was total mess outside of Fox. It didn't ruin chances of impeachment as there was never a chance as long as the Senate is filled with Trump's fluffers and run by McConnell. As for starting the impeachment process in Congress, I don't think it changed public perception much and some people were hoping that it would, but Mueller made it crystal clear that the report is his testimony and he is a dry as they come so I didn't expect anything game-changing. The same evidence of obstruction is still in the report, it is just a matter of what people want to do with it. Within the members of Congress, support for impeachment keeps increasing though and is close to 50%, so I think there is about an 80% chance they will proceed in the next few months. Buckle up.

I'd be buckling down right now if I was in the US.  At least Mueller's out of the news but look at all the shit in his place.

They will not impeach or try to until the new year.

Sanders is done.

And if a few more Republicans (like the clown) would speak up, Trump would be done too.

Monkey's what? And did we disagree?  I have always liked Bernie, but he lost in the primary, so there's that.

This is actually not a terrible article, although his conclusion seems to be pulled from his ass.  These numbers will change over time, but none of this is surprising. Bernie has the youth and income and age are correlated.  He also has a history of support among the working class, which is why he was shown as a strong candidate against Trump.  I would take either one of them.

Polls show that born-again whites were 27 percent of America’s population in the 1990s, but now they’ve slipped as low as 13 percent. Southern Baptists have lost 1.5 million members since 2006. But those who remain are intensely active in politics. They gave 81 percent of their votes to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Why do fundamentalists embrace a vulgar, shallow, obnoxious, juvenile, self-worshiping racist who abuses women and boasted that he can “grab ‘em by the pussy”? Why do they want the extreme opposite of Jesus? Wake Forest University church historian Bill Leonard says white evangelicals flock to Trump because they’re in “panic at the precipitous decline of Christianity.”

I am sure there is some panic of the decline, but evangelicals have overlooked the morals flaws in their own for decades. Watch The Family on Netflix. I think that they are influenced by the idea of achieving their religious/political goals by any means. The message from the Family is that if god can work through an imperfect vessel like King David, so can they. They know he is a straight-up sinner, but if he delivers new anti-abortion laws he is doing god's work and is therefore chosen by god.

Do you vote in the primaries?  While I enjoy a good Bernie rant, all I can do is watch the shitshow.
