mccabe fired: classic example of the elite class crapping on workers

21 years of service to this country.  

2 days before he was scheduled to retire and receive his pension.  

after months upon months of public humiliation and degradation of FBI.

where does this end?  when does it end?

I'm no fangirl of law enforcement but I appreciate them, truthfully appreciate all public servants - especially those who work in services that run into situations the rest of us run away from. 

they're not perfect, but they're honorable and brave. 

this president is beyond disgusting. 

I say this knowing he knows absolutely nothing about what it's like to put in a hard day's work; knows nothing about educating one's self to better one's self and station, to secure a decent job and distinguish yourself, to look forward to the day you can retire - with honors.  

mccabe is a decent man who sacrificed for his country, for his service, and deserves his goddamned pension and a gold watch or whatever token he would receive along with a nice dinner and a moment of appreciation and good will for the years and effort spent in creating a distinguished career of serving AND protecting the american people.  not the months and months of lies and insults he's endured.  

congress - the club that rewards itself with salaries and perks and "donations" and whatnots, even when the government is shut down and no other civil servant is making a plug nickle, the club that recesses more frequently than kindergarteners, rewarding itself with the best of everything - health clubs, dinners, healthcare we all dream of, vacations and fact finding tours via the golf clubs and resorts of the world - this group of do nothings is going to do just that - nothing.  they're going to let this disgusting president rampage across our country and destroy it, piece by piece.  

I am disheartened.

Going after a guy's pension like that is nothing but an intimidation tactic aimed at everyone else in the FBI.

Does McCabe have no recourse?

This despicable practice goes on in the private sector, too.

Kosh agreed. Thats part of it for sure. my sense of this president is that hes beginning to feel comfortable in this position of extreme power. and thats not good because he isn't competent. He was safer when he was tentative and surrounded himself w competent people.. Now he s replacing them with sycophants. 

Congress isn't checking his power. This is very worrisome.. Far more worrisome than bush cheney.

Congress not checking his power has been the problem from the very beginning, from when he refused to release his tax returns and ran a business from the White House. The biggest problem is not that he got elected - that could be a fluke - but that the checks and balances system failed even with all those people in Congress and the Supreme Court. In some ways, particularly in the failure to vet Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, McConnell is more dangerous than Trump. Jon Stewart didn’t do us a favor by portraying him as a turtle because it encouraged us not to take him seriously. Big mistake. There are a few guys in power who turn out to have seriously damaged their country, and McConnell is awfully high on that list.

Rodney its true about the private sector. 

no doubt theres an appeal process but how this was implemented was through the system. He was fired by sessions after a seperate evaluaton within the justice dept. 

That the Manchurian president did this is one thing but that congress isnt blinking as he destroys processes, policies and ppl is criminal. Heaven only knows what's next. 

And we have only to wait an hour or two for the next assault on our system.

Absolutely agree kosh. Lets not overlook ryan. The two of them are tweedle dee and tweedle dum to his mad hatter. 

They have a president who will quite literally sign anything they put before him into law.. For them he the gift that keeps on giving. 

And Elaine chou is in the cabinet!

This is, in a nutshell, everything that has gone wrong in America.

no shit amy - he pardoned that horror who cuffed a woman who was delivering a baby.  he did worse but I can't type it.  it's too sickening.

rodney, you are absolutely right.  the man is like an encapsulation of the worst of our country. he's a caricature, except he's real.
