Thank God for Our CBC our Public Broadcaster

Unlike the media for profit 'show' known in America as NEWS. Canada still has old fashioned journalists that aren't afraid to ask uncomfortable questions and aren't afraid of being demoted for doing such.

Trump: The Real Threat to the Second Amendment

When the demagogic standard bearer of "The Party of Lincoln" tells his audiences that Clinton would 'abolish' the Second Amendment, he may or may not know the correct verb. But the misusage is completely consistent with his penchant for simple-minded rhetoric to listeners whom he views as such! 'Abolish' has so much more oomph than 'repeal'.

Terence Crutcher: “Big Bad Dude” or Big Black Nigger

To say that I am exasperated writing about the continual slaughter of Black People in America by State sanctioned, uniformed thugs (a.k.a. Police) would be the understatement of the ages. Yet, here I am again and one more man that looks like me is dead. Murdered at the hands of those sworn to “protect and to serve”; the question is: protect and serve whom?

His name was Terence Crutcher.

Definition of Progressive

Does the definition of "progressive" include a Democratic candidate for the Presidency that voted with the entire Republican Party for the continued use of clusterbombs with full knowledge that they kill and maim innocent women, children, men, livestock and wildlife? Is this same candidate also considereed "progressive" when they believe in the death penalty when they know full well that innocent lives have been taken and many more on death row have been proven innocent?

Backup to points made re why we never should have gone into Afghanistan and Iraq in the first place

Listened today to Thom dispute the perception a fellow who happened to be in Iraq, I guess for the invasion. Thom brought up how Pres. Bush had turned down an offer to bring Osama BinLaden to justice to be tried. How GW felt the need to be a war president etc. Besides Thom's facts and the important fact brought up by an informed caller regarding one of the other reasons for invading Afghanistan, an oil pipeline, another significant reason we had no reason was that no Afghani or Iraqi were involved in the 9/11 attacks.

No one puts a bomb in a bomb basket / dumpster unless they don't want to kill

No one puts a bomb in a bomb basket / dumpster unless they don't want to kill. It's way too early, and I don't have any facts but... If these "bombs" were made as harmless as possible by being planted in dumpsters and garbage cans that smacks of some kind of, very dangerous, political manipulation..? ???

Why we don't tell the Saudis to stick it.

The USA at present and with future use of renewables, has enough energy to last for a long time without the Saudi Oil. That said, the reasons we don't tell them to stick it are at least two: 1. The Texas Refiners are set up to process heavy crude which comes from the Saudis at a discount. Guess which group, initials KB get that discount. 2. The other reason major has the initials MIC and I don;t mean the Mouse. Google oil imports for the answer.

According to then Israels leader Ben-Gurion, (1) Israel “has no plans for producing nuclear weapons”; (2) Israel had no plutonium (3) it would not accept International Atomic Energy Agency - IAEA inspection. This was the 1950's.

the RICH NEVER face real JUSTICE

Hartmann Report highlights Elizabeth Warren stating , “You explained these actions by noting your view that ‘the American people deserve those details in a case of intense public interest,’” Warren wrote to Comey. “If Secretary Clinton’s email server was of sufficient ‘interest’ to establish a new FBI standard of transparency, then surely the criminal prosecution of those responsible for the 2008 financial crisis should be subject to the same level of transparency.”

The AT&T/Time Warner Merger - Time To Worry?

Give Donald Trump some credit: he might be a bigoted crypto-fascist who's taken the Republican Party to the right of Attila the Hun - but every once in a while he's 100 percent correct.

Case in point: his take on AT&T's proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner.
