Dylann Roof's Mental Acuity

Perhaps the most revealing sign of Dylann Roof's lack of mental acuity, is that one would think that any young man that is anticipating performing an act that would likely land him a lengthy stay in prison, would think twice before posting on the internet, Come-Hither-Pin-Up photos of himself, for "Bubba Magazine".

Southerners...Don't kill blacks...kill billionaires

Who IS the real enemy of the people? Blacks? Hispanics? Liberals? Abortionist? Gays?

NO, IT'S THE BILLIONAIRES

Look over your shoulder and see who really is f****** you in the ass. Got a raise recently? Do you have 6 week vacation like my brother-in-law in Austria? ( who is worth $1M, working as a construction superintendent).

Footprints From NOAH'S ARK Found Off North American Coast ?

Impressions left by the feet of two adults and a child in the soft clay of Calvert Island on the central coast of British Columbia Canada , appear to be 13,200 years old, which would make them older than any others ever found on the North American continent.

I was wondering if the footprint could be from NOAH's ARK. BUT the carbon dating of the scientists that found it, MUST be a little off , because we all know , according to the BIBLE , that Earth is only 6 to 8000 years old .

ya'll lost :/

"We need to acknowledge that the Confederate states of America was a terrorist state and that the plantations there were concentration camps, that the slave patrollers were the brown and black shirts of that country and when the Confederate states decided to separ

It’s not just South Carolina…. Sign the Petition to ban the display of the Confederate flag on US Government property by civilians, military, or government personnel.

This petition is to ban the display of the Confederate flag (in any form or representation thereof) in or on United States Government buildings, facilities, military installations and equipment e.g. military ships, aircraft, and vehicles. The ban would also encompass the display of afore-mentioned flag or racist symbol on personal clothing, privately owned or leased vehicles, and the dissemination of printed or digital media promoting racism by any civilian, government employee, or military personnel while on US Government property.

“Kimba” The White Lion and the Intellectual Dishonesty of White Americans

Back in the mid 60’s, one of my favorite cartoons was called “Kimba”. I loved Kimba.

Today's Show 6-23-15/Gun Debate

I have tried calling but number is "not accepting mssgs at this time". I disagree with your gun statistics Thom. It seems the data is engineered to fit this political agenda. To be completely unbiased, how many of these gun deaths are from unregistered illegal firearms? Most of these accidental shootings are a result of incompetent Parents that should be held responsible!

Comment: NRA's Despicable Grasp On America

Thank you Bruce, you said what I feel so perceptibly.

Now that Mankind is slated for Extinction, it’s time to drop the Harvard Dirty Energy echo chamber.

Whatever it claims, and there is plenty of dubious, half-truth claims, the echo chamber has not sufficiently addressed the death of our planet.

Native Americans: Sovereign nations or subjugated peoples?

We are told that Native American reservations are actually sovereign nations, but if you look at the way they are designed and administered, calling them sovereign is really stretching the definition of the word. On Thom's show tonight this issue was briefly(very brief) touched upon when the subject was how the US government was taking tribal lands. This is not a new development and has been going on since before the founding of the USA.

Healthcare Subsidies

Subsidizing Healthcare is humane,
Subsidizing Oil is inhumane.

WE ARE the REAL Job Creators

THE right wingers always crow how the left are attacking the job creators, but WE are the REAL job creators. We are the society that give these companies the opportunity. We are the people who create the environment for business. Our taxes pay for the courts that protect their products and litigate grievances. We are the people through our taxes give these companies safe streets, good infrastructure, a well educated civil population. We are the ones , that provide the police that protects the businesses, we are the ones that give these companies the rail , air and road systems.

“RenCap”: Clintons accepted honorarium from Russian Secret Services while Hillary was Secretary of State.

It is what it is.

If you hate or distrust Putin, you had better read "Clinton Cash" by Peter Schweizer.

HILLARY SHOULD BE BEING CONSIDERED FOR PRISON AND NOT THE WHITE HOUSE

TPP: Trade deals getting signed without America?! Don’t blame or punish the 99%!

Another fine piece of flawed logic being used to justify shitting on the 99% to the favor of the rich!

Straight up: odious acts by Obama’s government and western oligarch operating abroad take a toll. And if nobody wants to do business with the west the answer isn’t to force a bunch of sacrifices on to the American 99%! Instead you might want to look at the greed and abuses of the Obama administration and Wester Oligarchs in their dealing abroad!

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
