This is a nice, easy to read, full of substance break down of what Republicans want, and what Democrats want to avoid government shut down.
These Factions in Congress, Split Over ‘Dreamers,’ Could Lead to Government Shutdown - The New York Times
I think that Trump fancies himself very clever on the impending shut down. But let us not forget that he constantly calls himself a "master negotiator."
Now, most Americans laugh at the notion, and if true, why is he running away during a time of crisis?
Oh, this is going to butt him, and more importantly Republicans in the butt! Mitch McConnell understands that.
Here is the quote in question, if it's even true:
"He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful and smart just like his daughter,''
What's so terrible about that? And, why do I feel like that if she had said something that favorable about Trump, you would dismiss her credibility because she is a porn star?
Yep, woke up this morning to a new reason to hate Trump.
The government is on the verge of shut down, and what does the Dotard do? He packs up to leave Washington, DC!
While Republicans are doing their very best to paint a potential shut down as the fault of Democrats, and hide behind CHIP funding (where was Republican support for CHIP in September? Was it not to their political advantage back then to support it?), the truth is, the failure belongs to DJT.
Yes, I blame HIM more than I blame individual Republicans.
Trump has done nothing to LEAD to a solution during this process.
If Republicans think average Americans will blame Democrats for this fiasco, they are sadly mistaken. And their day of reckoning is coming in November 2018.
Now this is mighty interesting. It is from today's NY Daily News.
If accurate, it would confirm my long held suspicions of money laundering.
And no, this isn't a reason to hate Trump. It is hopefully just more need evidence to be rid of the vermin that DJT!
I'm frequently surprised (well, not anymore actually) of how in 170 plus pages of comments in this thread, there is so little discussion of anything of importance. It's all about "lets talk about all the different ways we should hate Trump."
I only remember him commenting once. It was maybe not the best way to compliment his daughter, but that's all it was.
There is already a pretty high YUK factor surrounding this story, but it just increased.
The porn star reminded Trump of Ivanka? Oh, YUK, YUK, YUK.
Here is another example of the harm being done to this country by Trump. There is civil rights division in place within the Dept. of Health and Human Services to protect the "rights" of healthcare workers who don't want to participate in abortions or treat transgender patients.

Now, if you read the article, this idea isn't new, but Trump is giving it sharper teeth.
So, the focus of healthcare ISN'T the patient, it is really YOU and YOUR religious beliefs, morals, etc.
Yeah, that's GREAT.
First year polls show that Trumps handling of the economy and Isis get decent marks, but overall people view his Presidency as a failure. Congress and the press don't fare to well either. Interesting times.

What states have the highest rates of unwanted pregnancies? Which states have the poorest outcomes for pregnancy?
Will all the discussion and worry here about Trump's mental and physical health, I'm surprised no one has expressed how reassured they are by the findings of the WH physician.
This may be a sign of what awaits Republicans in the fall. Democrats took a seat that held for years, and years and years by Republicans. And they won it handily.
Who knows, Trump may be an unexpected gift to Democrats.

Here's a nice analysis from the NY Times regarding a Surveymonkey poll.
It shows that Americans are warming to the Republican tax scheme and like how Trump is "handling" the economy, but don't know that he should get the credit.
Anyway, it is interesting.

Almost an entire month went passed by since I wrote this (wow). Ever since that day, I noticed a slight improvement in my time management and I'm able to clear out my tasks before my shift ends. The latest I've stayed over was until 9pm, but it was understandable as I had a pretty heavy run. I just need to learn how to be a nurse more, but sometimes, I just couldn't help but feel quite envious of my experienced co-workers who know what they were doing all the time and get everything done on time. I understand that that is something that do come with experience.
