  • How Obama May Help Trump Become President   5 days 1 hour ago

    Her support, or lack of, for TPP (whichever way the political wind blows that day) is not Hillary's biggest problem in getting elected. Her biggest problem is that she is a liar, a conniver, a war hawk, and has possibly gained financially from her time as SOS.

  • How Obama May Help Trump Become President   5 days 2 hours ago

    Thom should know very well that Obama has no choice in TPP, agenda 21 or anything else that keeps the NWO on schedule. We can't get to that global, "one world, one currency" and thus fulfill that prophecy about the 'beast' without the agreements that ensure, one world, one international government, one comprehensive surveillance and subsequently one means of ridding the planet of the excessive 6.5 billion. Now can we?

    Don't bring up stuff you know neither Obama, Clinton or Trump can deliver or even truly support unless they want to be painfully replaced.

    Huzzah for Light-hearted Rhymes

    {… a rhyme …}

    ’Tis fun to think up a light-hearted verse

    which reverses one’s mood when politics is adverse

    to how things OUGHT to be.

    Things now are fraught with debris

    which clutters our nation, - and it’s fast getting worse.

    Trump is a sociopath

    deserving our anger and wrath, -

    - yet concerning this creep,

    some people might think }}

    that this jerk is on the right path.

  • Use Of Natural Resources Triples   5 days 11 hours ago

    Monday Aug 22 Thom referred to Clinton as possible "Commander in Chief"...without clarity that a US president is ONLY Commander in Chief of most of the military...not even all of it. Prez may not be CIC of the Coast Guard, for instance, and debate has raged with Repug states about who's CIC of the National Guard..

    Top point is that he/she is not/will not be OUR Commander in Chief. We, the People, are collective commanders in chief of the President...and every other government person we've elected, hired, and paid to do the public's legal, legitimate bidding. To just say "the" Commander in Chief omits the integral parts about the military...naturally confirming to many the perverse idea that a president is OUR Commander in Chief...like, in a dictatorship.

    This is a common problem...this "OUR Commander in Chief" thing is almost routine in mainstream media. Please use your forum to put a stop to it.

    Third Party Scare: You would have us vote for the party whose president is killing little kids in drone strikes or and selling munitions to Saudi Arabia which does the same. I think that if the middle class would have had the common sense to vote only for third parties to tell both the republicans and democrats that "the people" have had enough we might actually get something done. It's not voting for a third party that continues the killing and destruction of the planet spawned by our two party system.

    The US Army even celebrates the death and destruction by placing campaign ribbons on its official battle flag which still carries the 14 ribbons which stand for the 100 years of war against Native Americans from 1790 to 1890. They celebrate the killing of men, woman, and children of different races who might get in the way of profit for the few and the populace lets them get away with it. How sick is that?

  • How Obama May Help Trump Become President   5 days 14 hours ago

    It is possible that Obama sincerely believes TPP is good for the US.

    Or, it may be there are large financial gains for trumpeting the corporate cause.

    Politicans lie so well its difficult to guess their real motives.

  • CANADA'S right wing SUBVERSIVES   5 days 14 hours ago

    69.49% of Canadians voted in our last election in October of 2015 , giving the Liberal Party of Canada under Justin Trudeau a majority government. In Canada unlike in the US a majority government is giving a government a virtual dictatorship under our parliamentary system for 4 years.

    As to the hatred we see in the US mostly coming from the right, we've had our problems too from the same right wing types, but not racially motivated like in your country.

    the fact that it has come to these two bad choices out 330 million Americans, means to me Americans no longer have a democracy , these are your establishment choices for 2016 , the election of twiddle dee or twiddle dumb, both in varying degree in the back pocket of establishment America, that less tha 1% that own all the money and best poperty in America. Even President Jimmy Carter chimed in that America is no longer a democracy, but instead owned by the rich olygarch's. Its a sham as we found out after the election of Obama who hired all the same shysters and refused to jail known crooks in business and banking world , with the exception of one low level muslim banker and continued and expanded wars in the middle east, the first choice of the corporate war profiteers. For Canadians the thought of living next door to a totalitarian state run by right wing billionaires is terrifying.

  • How Obama May Help Trump Become President   5 days 15 hours ago

    I find it extremely ironic that Clinton is currently running anti outsourcing ads on Network TV showing David Letterman exposing Dangerous Don's double dealing on the matter...... And now Obama is going to run a campaign supporting Mike Pence's stance on TPP???? Sorry I have to use this.. ..but WTF? Has Obama made a deal with the devil????

    Oh it's just fine to put off a Supreme Court appointee, nobody is making a stir anymore, but The TPP, holy crap, Obama is obsessed....Obama is flat out wrong on this one, and Thom is flat out right....this will bring Clinton down big time, and very likely put Dangerous Don in control of the largest military the world has ever seen.

    I understand your love of country and who could blame you for that. America has freely helped needy people world wide and creating some of the most marvelous inventions and cures ,that have benefitted all the world. It has been a beacon of freedom along with other western countries for people living under tyranny. You are our neighbors who we truly care about. But America is a Jekyll and Hyde and its the Jekyll part of America that drives us and the world crazy.

    And when country loving Americans get amnesia , your friends in the north have to wake you out of your nationalistic trance.

    • Still say middle east will always be a violent helL hole. Always has been. I don't think the US had any involvement with Ghenghis Kahn or his compassionate friends
    • The nazis lost, thats why they were charged. If allies lost RAF leaders would be charged for civilian bombing. Truman for atom bomb. Fact of war life. Cheney like HRC, nothing would stick.
    • Given choice between nationalism that puts middle class first and corporatism that hurts workers but puts nice face on global issues, I'll take nationalism.
    • The US as great Satan with Russia, China, Islamic terrorists, turkey, n Korea, ? really? If US pulled every troop home, eliminated all foreign interference, middle east and Africa still be loodbaths. Always were, always will be.

    'Reporters Without Borders' https://rsf.org/en/ranking have ranked the United States 41st in the world allowing freedom of the press in 2016, in 2015 the US was ranked 49th in the word in freedom of the press, so nice try at bullshitting, the link is right there for you to click onto.

    As to blaming Cheney/ Bush for the wars and all the destruction and bloodshed, nice try again, they didn't exist in a vacuum, it was you and other Americans that put these monsters in power, you are the enablers. In fact you re-elected these torturers and mass murderers. I haven't seen Americans putting these buggers on trial for war crimes or crimes against humanity, no even Obama committed the vulgarity of saying all those past crimes should be forgotten , that we should all just look forward. As usual the nationalistic sheep that Americans are just got in lock step and followed the immorality of his wishes. Wonder if the Nazis could have used that defense in Nuremberg.

    As to this western bullshit line of the middle east always being under a state of war and killings , using your own logic the world could condemn the US for its civil war that killed 650, 000 of its own people, the government sanctioned mass murder and relocation of millions of First Nations peoples and theft of their land, the endemic racism ,slavery and murder that America was founded on and this was over a few hundred years , not thousands like in the middle east, not to mention the endless bloodletting the US has been responsible for world wide just in the last 60 years , 3 million in Vietnam, 300,000 in Central America propping up 'American friendly' right wing brutal thugs. Now you can add another million dead in Iraq and a quarter million in Afghanistan , plus thousands killed by Obama's drones in over a dozen countries just in the past 8 years. Not mentioning of course the bodies piling up of American created casualties of Libya , Yemen and Syria. So try again my friend to white wash the horrors created by America world wide and the systematic jailing, murder and surveillance of own citizens ..

    America is trying hard to earn its title of 'the Great Satan'

    zapdam Your link is not much different than mine. Yours has us third among the major nations with over 50 million, behind Ger and Uk. Still better tan 91 % of world population.

    not trying to bull- two different sources. Am looking at rest of your blog. I used nations over 50000000 people as comparison class because small nation comparisons like apples and oranges. Particularly in terms of press, media, and GDP income per cap.

  • Blacks OPEN CARRY   5 days 16 hours ago

    I don't know why home invasions would have increased in Australia after they had implemented commonsense gun control, after all, Australian citizens are still allowed to own guns. The guns which were outlawed are semi-autos with high capacity magazines, (aka, Mass Murder Machines) which serve no practical purpose in the civilian world. Legally, you can still rack your 12 gauge shotgun in your Australian home.​ The supposed 'skyrocketing' of home invasions sounds like another ridiculous myth propagated by the likes of the NRA and Fox News.

    The primary reasons we can't have commonsense gun control in the US are the powerful gun lobby and a significant population of useful-idiot GunTards.

  • CANADA'S right wing SUBVERSIVES   5 days 17 hours ago

    Are there right wing (or left wing) dog whistle phrases or subjects in Canada? Does the language difference play into propaganda of any type?

    What is voter turnout for presidential elections?

  • The STUPIDEST F^<KING ELECTORATE in the WORLD   5 days 17 hours ago

    Its hard to make decent decisions when you have terrible options. Trump's a bad joke and Hillary is corporate shill. Going third party in battleground states makes a statement, but helps the one one hates the most. If there is a debate, it will be like watching SAW 3 D. Fortunately, we won't be electing a dictator. I really can't stomach even looking at either one of them. They make Dan Quail look presidential. And intellectual.

    The thing I hate most is the politicalization of the Supreme court. Who'se Trump going to appoint, Judge Judy? Hillary for Barack? Is there a right-wing and left -wing Constitution? No party has truly supported the middle class since Truman.

    It all comes down to turnout.

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
