Public Comment

"bigot shaming"

I managed to catch a little of Thom's show today (June 1), and he mentioned "publically shaming the bigots" when talking about anti-Muslim discrimination.

I'm sure Thom has noticed that bigots don't really care how their opinions are viewed by anyone else. If you were to ask them, they would probably think that they are not being "bigots", but rather just being "honest". Or, that "bigot" doesn't necessarily carry a negotive connotation.

Public Employees Padding Pay For Pensions

Watchdog: How special pay is padding pension checks in Orange County, elsewhere

They’re the little extras tacked on to “pensionable pay” – from mainstays like chunks of unused leave time to such oddities as the “motorcycle bonus” and “confined space pay.”

Texas rain

I'm wondering if this disastrous rainfall that is soaking Texas is God's punishment.for all things the state does wrong? Such as killing mentally disabled people with the death penalty or wanting to secede from the United States, or ban books or the murder JFK ?

Rethinking Bernie??? Other choices.

Now, if you can forgive or overlook this maybe you can also overlook Hillary’s vote for the Iraq war. Yes? Or is there an alternative or two:

I've Got a Right...

Here you go, all you adamant “Freedom of Speech Whatever the Cost” advocates. Fallout from Hebdo and the “Paris Massacre.” It may be just beginning. Even here on TH you can read comments such as “these people”, “them” and “they.” There was even a post recently right here on TH supporting Pamela Geller. This is how it starts. It can easily become nasty – and bloody. For the moment, and we should be grateful, there’s calm in Phoenix.

LNG Exports...It's GOING to RAISE OUR PRICES! Russia & Ukraine play into this also!

I have been against LNG EXPORTS (Liquefied Natural Gas) for a couple of years now because of several reason. First of all, if you think they are fracking in too many areas now, JUST WAIT until they get the permits to build and export LNG to the open markets. They will be fracking in YOUR front and backyard!

The Text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Held In Secrecy

An example of how dishonest business people do things. They withhold information and then try to rush you through the negotiation process before you have had time to actually read the contract text and see the flaws in the agreement. Barack Obama is now acting like a very dishonest business person in his lobbying for multi-national companies with TPP.

Extremism defined by an extremist.

one-party-has-become-more-extreme-and-one-hasnt. Facts and stats show the GOP has slip the pendulum or taken the party to the cliff's edge, but NY Times Peter Behnert says the Dems are extremists while the GOP are still vanilla. political_polarization_2014. has the graphs. Cognitive dissonance may apply, but it could be what I call Catch -24*.

And Gilmore makes 17...

You need to know this... Support for Donald Trump's campaign is still growing nationally, and in early primary states, but he's not just gaining support in early primary states. A new poll from Florida shows that Trump is leading Jeb by 6 percentage points - and he's leading Rubio by 16 points.
