Of course they did. Fucking fuckers.

This is why Republicans won't make Trump an explicit enemy...yet. Right now, they have a great distraction. I mean, what better cover for passing shit like this than Trump's constant stupid shit, cover-ups, and Russian investigation? They have control over the House and Senate and everyone is paying attention to the Mango Mussolini, so they can just keep doing and undoing all of things they have wanted to do for years that will ultimately fuck us over.

Well, if you are overweight then all that puking will result in weight-loss. So...win? It's a win like cancer is a win when it comes to losing weight.

And the best part....many of the so called small government conservatives I know just shrug their shoulders and say "Meh, it's not a big deal", all because this was put forth by a Republican, and their Republican President will not veto.

I think it is time to start calling the "small government" conservatives what they really are. They are Big State Government Conservatives. They don't really want less government, they just want less government that they have less control over and more government that they have more control over. Can't get a discriminatory bill through the House and Senate? That's fine, get it through individual state governments instead! Want to call 2017 the year of the bible? Well, you can't do it at the federal level but at the state level? Have at it partner!

Exactly.

The whole "small government/states rights" bullshit is nothing more than a label that really means "I want to be able to discriminate all I want, and if you don't like it, move to another state".

They are "government when it's convenient to me" conservatives.
Government is fine when it meddles in bathrooms, marriage, or praying in schools.

But this is SO fucked up, ... a lot of the crap he's doing will be fought over in the courts for YEARS, by the time it's out of the courts, D.T Rump will be just a bad memory, (like the coal regulations, yesterday ... what he did really can't change anything, immediately). Look at his record. TWO Executive orders halted by the courts. HUGE fail on health care.

My great aunt's friend, (a nice ole nun in her 90's I visit sometimes) said yesterday to my brother and me "Now listen boys, you just remember you are better than this, and you were raised to be kind and good ... this is going to pass. I'm old enough to have seen many evils and many good things. The good will out. These evil men will be seen for what they are. I'm so glad I lived when I did, when the Roosevelts taught us what it meant to be compassionate, and we worked together for each other. You know many people still do that ... but all we hear about are these evil people. Remember most people are not this way."
