If you automatically believe a Democrat accused of sexual assault is guilty and a Republican accused is innocent, that's Red Team, Blue Team.

If you believe individuals are innocent until proven guilty, that's Red Team, Blue Team.


If you believe only Democrats should be subject to investigation, but not Republicans, that's Red Team, Blue Team.

If you believe leaders who may have deliberately violated law should be investigated, regardless what team they come from, that's Red Team, Blue Team.


If you think a Democrat POTUS asking his Attorney General to investigate somebody is inappropriate but have no problem if a Republican POTUS does similar, that's Red Team, Blue Team.

If you believe this Presidential tactic, done by either Party, is out of order, then that's Red Team, Blue Team.



That should give some idea as to what the phrase means to me.

Watching the early 2017 political contests, the roy moore fiasco unfold, and the Va Gov contest, has me thinking. Does it even matter much anymore whether the stooge who is elected to whatever office claims to be R or D ? Seems like every post-trump local election has been hyped by the press as being a bellwether event that predicts the downfall of one party or the other. Durden has done a good job of reminding some of the folks on this board that the gop has had great success in winning and holding seats at various levels. McCain has done a good job of illustrating the insanity of mccain being classified as a R.

I'm kinda concluding that our system is gridlocked, and approaching the level of being incapable of accomplishing anything substantive. The left has been exposed as wanting this country to be Socialist/Communist with open borders. The right believes in Capitalism and strict border control. With those two diametrically opposed positions on the table, there will be no compromise.

Obama's significant 'achievements' were done via E.O.  Congress has become ineffectual and has been exposed as being nothing more than careerists and fundraisers. They can't get sh1t done.

I suppose if D's get enough seats next year, they will impeach trump. So what? Pence is gonna be worse for them than trump. Plus, a trump impeachment will cause joy and tears in lib land, and will cause those snowflakes to totally lose sight of anything substantive, which will be money in the bank for the R's. While libs are taking a trump-impeachment victory lap, R's will have locked up the 2020 election and the SC for the next 30 years.

Anyway, the more I see, the more I believe that calling a politician R or D no longer accurately characterize anything about that person. The whole idea of a 2 party system is outdated and unreliable.

Bottom line for me remains that the only reliably attainable achievement of becoming president is that once you win, you get to stack the Courts.  #MAGA

"Time and again and again and again, CNN has been the media’s chief overseer of the Democrat Plantation, a mercenary and merciless destroyer of any black person who strays, who thinks freely, who does not behave in the way CNN demands black people behave. Understanding that might help to explain the apparent command from on-high to destroy Donna Brazile.

CNN is facing a class-action racial discrimination suit. More than 175 people claim that “among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a ‘glass ceiling.’” 

Worse still, to further its unholy cause, as a means to spur race riots, CNN has poured rhetorical gasoline all over predominantly black neighborhoods in Ferguson and Baltimore. In both of these vulnerable communities, CNN treated black homes and businesses as nothing more than kindling for its social justice fire."

Trump undoing odummers EO's so quickly should remind the dems how faulty that strategy was from the beginning.

There were certain EOs for instance the odummer care subsidy payments that were not permitted by the constitution.  Republicans were negligent for not pressing that issue to a Supreme Court ruling. 

They won't impeach Trump on anything to date.  You better have some evidence when you head down that path.  screeeeeching loudly and endlessly is not evidence.

Our ineffective congress can be tracked directly to our process of selecting leadership.  Actually falling for dopey hit pieces endlessly leads us to a situation where the leaders that make it through have been conniving backstabbers who have done all their work in the back rooms.
