Trump's FCC head is doing exactly what we expected. Ajit Pai is a vocal opponent of net neutrality, promising to "fire up the weed whacker" against his agency shortly before assuming leadership. The official has also been quick to launch a campaign to roll back many of the consumer protections that the FCC was instrumental in creating. Read a summary of Ajit Pai's first two weeks as head of the FCC in engadget.com

At gathering on 'politics of love,' Sanders warns Trump could start a war."This is one of the things that scares me most: For a demagogue to succeed, they need to cultivate hatred. Now the hatred may be against immigrants - we're all supposed to hate immigrants, and maybe it's other minorities, African-Americans, Latinos," Sanders said. "But also I worry that the hatred will spill over to foreign affairs, and that we are maybe entering into a situation where a Trump needs a war to rally public support." He said Trump's victory, was not a victory for Trump or his ideology, it was a gross political failure of the Democratic Party. He won because "there are people in this country who are hurting, and they are hurting terribly," Sanders said. "And for years they looked to the Democratic Party, which at one time was the party of working people. And they looked and they looked and they looked and they got nothing in return, and out of desperation they turned to Mr. Trump." Sanders encouraged conference attendees to run for office, especially school boards, city councils and state legislatures. More at yahoo.com

I can't believe I'm saying this, but it looks like there are many ways Trump is actually making America great again. Just look at the progress made since the election: 1. Unprecedented levels of ongoing civic engagement. 2. Millions of Americans now know who their state and federal representatives are without having to google. 3. Millions of Americans are exercising more. They're holding signs and marching every week. 4. Alec Baldwin is great again. Everyone's forgotten he's kind of a jerk.

It seems to me that almost every Republican candidate in recent years has run on some sort of a no-tax/anti-tax policy and actively promotes the false idea that we are grossly overtaxed and that taxes hurt the economy and stifle growth. Now comes along Republican Rep. Lee Chatfield with his introduction of a bill that phases out the state income tax and offers nothing to replace it. This has to be one of the most irresponsible pieces of legislation ever proposed. Conservative politicians have been very successful at framing taxes in negative ways, using words like "a burden," "an affliction" and "an unfair punishment" that taxpayersneed relief from. How can a person maintain that the taxes that support those police and fire departments, public schools, fighting terrorism and protecting the environment are bad? Taxes are the dues we pay to live in a civilized society that is democratic, offers opportunity and has an infrastructure accessible to all of us. Joe Petit

On March 15th, each of us will mail Donald Trump a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him - and against us - means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he's fired. Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump ! Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donnie know how he's doing. They can't build a wall high enough to stop the mail. Then, on March 15th, mail your messages to: Donald J. Trump The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500.
