US Domestic Politics

Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

Narcissism in detail

Since a narcisist is in the news 24/7 /narcissism/ includes a test and further research, including SEX!!

I've been reading about semiotics and thought I'd experiment, thus the bold, the caps and double!!

Donald Trump versus a Chimp with a Good Accountant

As I watch Donald Trump campaign I can't help but notice that this guy who touts his deal making acumen as his greatest qualification for being president doesn't seem particularly adept at business dealings. In the very first opening salvo of his campaign not only did he alienate almost the entire Latino community but he cost himself tens of millions of dollars in endorsement deals besides. All he needed to do was use overt but coded

Immaculate conception

I solved the mystery of Mary's unknown sexual trist. God has a really tiny penis and she did not know he was in there.

hey Thom, encouage viewers & listeners to call the FTC to fine "Southern" Baptist leaders for false services

hey Thom, since the so called "Southern" Baptist church buildings are north of the equator, each of the leaders of said "Southern" Baptist church buildings deserve to be fined $250,000 per each offense of having this name of "Southern"; "Southern" Baptist religions do collect a tithe in exchange for service(s), and these fraudulent deceptions of religious consumers must instantly and permanently come to an end; let's bankrupt the "Southern" Baptists before their hateful ideology hurts more people that aren't heteros

violence and the state; rhetoric left and right

Of the many instances over the years of violence and threats of violence there are a couple recent instances which motivated me to post this. One is discussed here: The second, a video, is here: It demonstrates the kind of violence which is common from the right wing when they are unable to organize a terrorist attack or school shooting.

Jeb's response to Trump

It's too bad the Dems don't respond to these debates.

-Did anyone hear Jeb say we were safer under his brother? Really? Anyone want to point out we had the biggest attack on the US since Pearl Harbor under his brother's Presidency?

-Or that President Obama killed Osama Bin Laden?

-Or that ISIS is a direct result of attacking a Country that had nothing to do with 9/11

-Or that we have had no attacks on the US since Obama was President?

Why don't we have a voice?

GOP vs Women

Women are 53% of registered voters (women live longer than men and old widows still vote in states the GOP governors have not purged them or denied the vote over a maiden name vs married name), yet not a one of them had a suggestion for the woman to grace the 10 dollar bill. Jeb!-Maggie Thatcher--uhh Jeb!, not an American but he got to put Reagan in his answer....success for the GOP is who got to fit Reagan in the most times. If possible a Reagan Omelet would let one fit his name in for an answer re: American Health and diet.

Bernie Sander's VP

Rachel Maddow had a story a while ago speculating that Joe Biden might annouce a running mate early, should he choose to run. I think this is exactly what Bernie should do. He needs to choose a woman who will be able to run for president later in her own right. My short list:

Wendy Davis
Cecile Richards
Jan Schakowsky
Amy Klobuchar
Michelle Obama

FHA Had Written Policies that Required Housing Discrimination

The Federal Housing Administration had agency handbooks which promoted racial discrimination in housing. Banks could not lend money to African-Americans who wanted to move into certain communities. The FHA helped to create as a matter of deliberate policy all-white suburbs, such as Levittown in the state of New York. The Fair Housing Act has prevented blatant acts of housing discrimination, but past discrimination, which also involved landlords who refused to rent to members of certain ethnic or even religious groups, such as the Irish, or Jews, was so pervasive that a civ

SIlicon Valley Goes Republican

In Democratic California, which 2016 candidates get the most money? You'll be surprised

he San Francisco Bay Area, one of the nation's biggest Democratic strongholds, has emerged with an unlikely distinction this year: It is California's biggest source of campaign money for GOP presidential candidates.

No difference between the two major parties

I used to listen to Thom regularly on 1090-AM here in the Seattle area. Several years ago, I recall him mentioning that he had offered an autographed copy of one of his books to anyone who could provide evidence of a Rep*blican Congressman or Senator who introduced a bill that benefited most working class Americans that was passed into law

At the time of the broadcast, no one had claimed the book.

WOW! Amazing introduction for Bernie Sanders!

Oh my goodness! You really have to hear this introduction that Bernie Sanders got in Columbia South Carolina from Dr. Cornel West. He called Bernie a "brother of honor, of decency, of intregity" and urged the crowd to "get in on the movement" and join Senator Sanders' call for a "political revolution" in the United States.

It was pretty impressive for sure!

Going to the U.S. Open? Careful.

I hope that James Blake asks for much more than apologies. No racial factor here? You have to be kidding me. If James had been whiter would he have been flagrantly abused by one of “New York’s finest”? I don’t think so. Can no one in Washington address this seemingly nation-wide racial abuse by police?

The Right To Oppress: The GOP's New Civil Rights Frontier...

Did anyone else hear some of the comparisons that Kim Davis has the same moral standing as Rosa Parks or MLK?

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
