  • Trump proposes STRIPPING CITIZENSHIP from political PROTESTERS   2 days 22 hours ago

    Can you take away citizenship from a Native American at Standing Rock?

  • GARBAGE in GARBAGE out   3 days 5 min ago

    Every excuse from you guys except the most important one...your candidate sucked. She couldn't beat a TV personality. Think about that. A lot of the same people who helped elect Barack Obama to two terms voted this time for Donald Trump. And guess what...Fox was around back then too.

    Go ahead and stick your head in the sand. The democrats may make a comeback in two years but it won't be because of their ideas and thoughts. It will be because Trump will figure out a way to screw up something.

  • Trump proposes STRIPPING CITIZENSHIP from political PROTESTERS   3 days 48 min ago

    Drumpf is only burning the Constitution due to the message its sending to the Children.jpg

    Drumpf's ignlrance not knowing burning the flag is considered free speech and the 14th amendment says he can't revoke anyone's citizenship. He quoted Scalia for authorization.

    ☛ "If I were king, I would not allow people to go around burning the American flag. However, we have a First Amendment, which says that the right of free speech shall not be abridged -- and it is addressed in particular to speech critical of the government," "That was the main kind of speech that tyrants would seek to suppress."
    ~ Anton Scalia, Dead SCotUS

    Trump Calls for Revoking Flag Burners’ Citizenship. Court Rulings Forbid It.
    The Supreme Court long ago ruled that the Constitution does not permit the government to take a person’s citizenship against his or her will.

    We have a new holiday thanks to Drumpf, Burn a Flag Day!
    Since most flags are crud oil middle eastern plastic made in Chinese sweat shops for MalWart's it would be more accurate to "Melt a Flag". It would also be pollution. Burning a cotton flag would be ok if it was organic. Most from Egypt, more lost jobs. US cotton requires 90 million pounds of poison sprayed through out the Bible Belt. Aborting pre-babies the anti life war mongers never bring up when brainstorming how to shut down another access to women's health care. Drumpf answer is fast track more Big Pharma quackery with Rep. Tom Price heading H.H.S.

    I guess the only safe way to burn a flag would be an American family farm organic Hemp Flag. A true desecration with clouds of cannabis smoke and not a psychoactive puff to be found. That would also be illegal and NRA paid mandatory minimum sentencing would get the farmer a set time in federal prison. Regardless of defense, same Gag order as Medicinal, Its schedule#1 narcotic cause Nixon said so and that's that. A sacrifice for the Koch's and ALEC Maximum Capacity contracts for guaranteed profit prisons. Taking tax dollars Norquestrians neglect to mention. GOPers must have memory problems, along with Readin, Ritin & Rithmetic..

    Trump's Carrier deal doesn't look so good if you read past the headlines

    Bernie Sanders: Carrier just showed corporations how to beat Donald Trump
    We need a president who can stand up to big corporations, not fold to their demands.
    Today, about 1,000 Carrier workers and their families should be rejoicing. But the rest of our nation’s workers should be very nervous.

    In exchange for allowing United Technologies to continue to offshore more than 1,000 jobs, Trump will reportedly give the company tax and regulatory favors that the corporation has sought.

    Just a short few months ago, Trump was pledging to force United Technologies to “pay a damn tax.” He was insisting on very steep tariffs for companies like Carrier that left the United States

    Still betting on Trump?

    # An extreme-right, white nationalist is Trump's chief strategist.

    # The leading critic of Obamacare is tapped to lead the Department of Health and Human Services.

    # Trump plans to fill the Supreme Court with justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade.

    # Trump’s pick for Treasury secretary is a billionaire banker who made a fortune foreclosing on working families’ homes during the recession.

    # A conspiracy theorist is Trump's national security advisor.

    # A senator once rejected for a judicial appointment is Trump's pick as attorney general.

    # Trump is appointing climate change deniers to key positions in his administration.

    # Muslim Americans now fear being added to a national registry.

    # Millions of hardworking immigrant families fear deportation.

    # Trump wants flag burners to be jailed or lose their citizenship. Never mind the U.S. Constitution.

    # And anti-choice Republicans are poised to finally defund Planned Parenthood, privatize Medicare, shred Medicaid and advance a federal 20-week abortion ban.

  • Trump's Drain the Swamp Scam Has Been Exposed   3 days 3 hours ago

    I'm beginning to see how it is that people define reality in terms of good and evil ... I simply am amazed at how things get turned around - how easily people are led (and misled) by blind fear, mostly ... ambitions, and appetites out of control ... what can influence these things?

    K Allen , a prosperous Israel who receives 3 billion dollars a year from a broke America, has as you have stated single payer health care.

    PLUS " Israel has a comprehensive social security system that pays out a series of benefits and grants to those in financial need. The social insurance system covers every citizen of Israel and the social assistance program is a series of means tested benefits that are applicable to those aged 20 or older."

    PLUS besides giving all youth free education from kindergarden to the equivalent of grade 12, " Higher education is the only big-ticket item that’s still consistently and dramatically cheaper in Israel. The annual cost of tuition at an Israeli university (which is set by the government) is today $2,890."

    PLUS "Israel’s abortion law now among world’s most liberal

    Despite its conservative leanings, government approves free pregnancy termination for nearly all women, and it barely causes a ripple."

    If you've ever played Monopoly, a game based on capitalism, then you know the way the game finishes. The game if played to completion always has one or two people virtually owning everything.

    In the real world of capitalism, without the restraints of unions and meaningful progressive taxation to balance and keep in check the trend of all the fruits of capitalism eventually falling into hands of a very few individuals, who like in monopoly own everything, the game becomes a crude template for an economic system at its final end.

  • Every Election is a National Election   3 days 4 hours ago

    The Republicans are planning to get enough states to re-write the Constitution.

    The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures.

  • YOU gave them the MONEY to DESTROY YOU   3 days 5 hours ago

    This one explains it best. With money to burn they have bought the best government that money can buy. If you look at any of these look at this one first.

  • Businesses Exploit The Poor For a Buck.   3 days 5 hours ago

    In the recent years, we have noticed several kinds of changes in the business policy. People with lower income are getting suitable opportunities to get profits; therefore government and other non-profitable organizations are taking beneficial steps to repair the current business environment in the United States of America. It promotes business and creates a good opportunity for people ahead of corporate profits; so, we hope in near future also people are getting equal chance to develop their ventures.

  • Thinking about Fidel   3 days 7 hours ago

    Castro was worth 900,000,000. It is not disputed by the media.

    If his people were so happy, they wouldn't have been prevented from leaving, or imprisoned for trying.

    Hopefully, the Obama mistake of "normalizing" Cuba will be reversed. After a year or two of economic collapse and potential starvation, without the failed Communist benefactors of the USSR and Venezuela, Cuba will come begging to the US for terms that will benefit Americans and dismantle the murderous Castro regime.

    Good riddance, Fidel. I hope Raul joins you soon.

    Hitler lied. T rump lies. They both lied to confuse their perceived enemies, who are those of us who disent. Inside all the outrageous lies T rump states, he is naming everything that he plans to do. When hitler named the horrible things he was planning, no one believed anyone would do such things. Until he did them. So when trump lies, we should probably believe him now and recognise that he is a clear and present danger to Democracy.

Rachel Maddox said tonight that he is considering two CEO's of EFRON for Secretary of State. This is criminal. I am sure this is going to be the most corrupt government we could possibly have. And we said there would never be another Hitler.

    They will twist the story to make it seem like they are right until the outhouse goes up in flames and with all kinds of evidence the Trump voters were wrong, still try to act like they were right all along.

  • My Fears   3 days 9 hours ago

    Mingram : Your fears are, fortunately, unwarranted. The U.S. is not the only nation in the world. If all the other nations understand the "urgency" of climate change, they will take action and the US will follow. However, it is ludicrous to think that if the US makes significant sacrifices and sacrifices jobs and comfort, the world will happily follow.

    If Bangladesh goes under water, the African Union will certainly make sure the 170 million in Bangladesh will be taken care of by their continental brothers and sisters. Just read the African union website to see how powerful and self-determinant it will be. Africa doesn't need the help of western nations to help with climate change refugees.

    You stated you are an athiest and are for LGBTQ "rights" . Thats fine. However, i am a Christian who believes that without "religion" ( Judeo-Christian) in our government, there would still be slavery and a true Darwinistic stance to social policy.

    You fear those who believe in "intelligent design". Does this mean you are an adherent to strict evolution and the belief of "survival of the fittest?"

    I am a Christian who believes in intelligent design: that a supreme being developed evolution. If, as an athiest you believe in strict evolution, you would, I think, understand that 170 million Bangladesh people perishing under tidal increases, as well as the LGBT "community" being ostracised as a biologically unsustainable group of aberrants, would be 'logical".

    Please don't fear the results of this election. The middle class Judeo/Christian majority that prevailed in this election will improve the world (for Americans), allow the African Union to solve Africa's propblems without US interference (or money), and allow the JGBT "community" to keep the rights they deserve.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
