THE BOTTOM LINE

This is it folks. The bottom line. Trump is a little boy trying to drive an adult car. when he crashes and burns no one will be surprised except those who believed he could do it.

The @-Bomb

Hi Thom. Hoping this may reach you. I read your daily column and and then share it with friends in Maine. I wondered if you had covered the subject of the article by Mattithias Schwartz in the NYT magazine this past Sunday. It caught my attention and made me wonder an awful lot about the pervasiveness of cyber crime, and the uses of malware for good or evil. Terrific aticle! Thanks for all you have done to broadcast about "crosschecking" and Kris Kobach. I hope someday his story and what he has done will make it onto 60 minutes or an Oliver Stone movie.

ALBERTA TAR SAND development a series of ECOLOGICAL DISASTERS

The whole tar sands extraction process is a multi level ecological disaster, past pipeline debates are more like a diversionary hoax.

Women's March Could Be Bigger Than Trump Inauguration

The inauguration of a new president is traditionally one of the biggest events in years in Washington—but if bus parking figures are anything to go by, Donald Trump's inauguration may not even be the city's biggest event next week. DC Council member Charles Allen tells NBC4 that only around 200 requests to park charter buses at RFK Stadium, the main such parking facility, have been made for Jan. 20, but there have been at least 1,200 requests for Jan. 21, the day after the inauguration, when the Women's March on Washington will be held.

intersectioning and other chaotic thoughts

After listening to Thom's segement on Russia with Prof. Cohen yesterday I went over to the Nation, a magazine which perhaps most closely expresses my own views on politics, race, etc., although I also like sites like Popular Resistance, Socialist Alternative, etc. My specific interest was in the articles about RT. I cannot take the time to analyze the various stories about Clinton's emails, the DNC hack, etc.

You Cannot Built A Grassroots Tea Party for Democrats - here's why

I wrote a little something about my recent experience running in the California ADEM election. I think it's important to note that, while the turnout was high (fueled by a strong Bernie/ Progressive enthusiasm), many of those running for Assembly District Delegate were actually DEAN/ KERRY guys who were taking this opportunity to further their position in the party. So in other words, same 'ol, same 'ol.

Thoughts welcomed.

Is Trump Right As Rain on NAFTA & Offshoring?

When asked during his confirmation hearing on Wednesday about his position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson - Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of State - said that while he did not personally oppose the agreement, it didn't further America's interests in its current form.
