OWS

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Freshmen Dems ‘changing everything’ for Trump (video)

Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) joins Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss her pointed questioning of Trump administration officials and corporate CEOs that has quickly given her a reputation for delivering must-see moments in Congressional hearings.
The entire report is interesting to me, but what rally made me sit up and take notice is at 5:30 - 7:30. Wow, I just saw the CEO of Wells Fargo get raked . . . by my 3rd grade teacher. :lol:

:---P

Evidently, she's been doing this a lot. Here she is vs. Dolt .45's wholly unqualified CFPB director, Kathy Kraninger, 2:00 - 5:00.
Lawrence's Last Word (video)

Watch freshman Congresswoman Katie Porter teach another Trump administration official yet another lesson in a House committee hearing.
OMG, she schooled Kraninger from a book that Porter wrote on the topic, a book!

:---P

Katie Porter is "the first Democrat to be elected to represent California's 45th congressional district" after beating Mimi Walters (incumbent) 52-48, Orange County! The Repugs must be really hating losing that one about now.

Lots of attention being given AOC, which is great, but it looks like there other rock stars among the rookies.

I thought Mulvaney was in charge of CFPB or at least was "acting" ....hard to say. I don't want that asshole presuming to protect me anyway. He's a scumbag ambassador representing the most vile ethos yet known. Plus he's an asshole. Hell, he's chief of a staff of assholes, which I guess raises him to the twelfth or fourteenth power; boggles the brainpan. I feel as unprotected as ever.

Well, shit in a tree and fall down in it......since I've been out of the country checking on my diamond mine and my teak harvesting concern I've been out of touch with Mick's latest greatest gig. I still say fuck him. He's fake. And I have every confidence that Kathleen will carry on Mick's stupid fucked up legacy.
