    Republicans are stealing our Democracy. Trump is defunding the Post Office.

  • Will Enough Americans Show Up to Stop Trump From Using the Dictator's Playbook?   2 hours 45 min ago

    This "election" will be very interesting. We'll all find out if the death grip the ruling class has on our nation is irreversible or not. If COVID-45 "wins" again, probably not, but if the Biden/Harris ticket wins, our nation's direction is still problematic. Both are, IMO,totally immersed in our country's "corporate culture", and won't persue the people's interests over the interests of the corporations, and our new brand of "disaster capitalism" and profits "uber alles".

    The big question remains; If the Dems win, can the Biden/Harris ticket channel their inner FDR inclinations, if, they even exist?

    Great show, exactly what we need to be talking about,

    I'm a Democratic Socialist but I understand these disaffected Republicans are important for creating the big tent we'll need to shutout the Trump Republicans for the foreseeable future. Your guest hit on my compromise solution when he said he wants to keep the free markets and just clean out corruption, but if I'm willing to come his way, he must come ours.

    On my website, I have an essay, "Mass Decency," where I layout a version of DS that keeps markets and does not allow the government to own property, per se, but it eliminates poverty, extreme wealth inequality and financial markets for investment, because these are the sources of inequality that frustrate democracy; however, it still promotes entrepreneurship and competition among businesses that provide products and services for the consumer markets. I welcome anyone, especially conservatives, to consider and debate it with me.

    You would not think that a party that only supports the 1% would last very long. But the money owns the mainstream media. Which it uses very effectively to brainwash a base. It is incredible, they are going to take away Medicare and Social Security from its base and they love it. As long as it is racist, love guns and claims to be law and order it will last. Its base supports the 1%.

    Thom, the blm movement at its core has become a terrorist movement. They will burn themselves out with their outlandish acts like the $65 million dollars in damage they caused in Chicago in just one of their events.

    Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, called the looting reparations:

    "I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats. That makes sure that person has clothes.”…”That is reparations. Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”

    I just participated in a Black Lives group that has been on our boardwalk for 50 nights. We are in a small town on a major highway. "A man" in a big-ass-truck stopped at a traffic light across from us, pushed his upper body out the window and screamed WHITE POWER several times. The 20 yr old black guy next to me laughed, and then prepared his phone camera in case the guy went around the block.

    Trump has unleashed this unholy mess and the GOP will never be the same. That's a good thing. I think they will survive, but if not, there are plenty of diverse opinions within the left and independent ranks.

    Getting through what hopefully is this last bit of hell is gonna be hard, every damn day hard. Keep talking, writing, showing-up, and preparing to do battle. I hope all of you squeeze in a "are you fucking kidding me kinda" laugh occasionally.

    The eminent linguist, historian and political commentor Noam Chomsky once called the Republican Party "the most dangerous organization in human history." He said this in reference to the GOP's efforts to stifle remedies to deal with the global climate crisis. Republicans will go so far as to bring humankind to the brink of extinction in their rabid pursuit of power and control. These people will stop at nothing to achieve their ends.

    The Republican Party collapsed a long time ago. Not sure when…Nixon?…Reagan?…Bush 1&2…and now Trump. But one thing is sure, the GOP is now the Shithead Party. Absolutely nothing good can be said about the current Shithead Party. Greedy, racist, arrogantly ignorant, delusional, anti-science, irrational, sadistic, treasonous, pathological liars, corrupt, the list goes on and on.

    Off the subject: One way we know for sure that the Hillary Clinton campaign didn’t spy on the Trump campaign is that Trump is in the Whitehouse and not in prison. Had they spied on Trump’s campaign as Trump contends, no doubt they would easily have found enough to send Trump and his family to prison for life.

  • Everything Trump Touches Dies - Including Trade & Bringing Jobs Home   1 day 3 hours ago

    Not everything COVID-45 touches dies, his personal wealth grows daily . Emoluments clause anyone?

    We'll see if our two nominees can dish out needed doses of reality to the liar-in-chief, and call him out in no uncertain terms. He'll be doing that to them.

    Our favorite COVID-45 booster should know ALL about pets. old saying;"takes one, to know one."

    All of this is done with Republican Party approval. Except for the break away Republicans (the few with a brain) called the Lincoln Project. It will take years for Biden to undue the mess. About the length of time that people will remember what caused the mess.

    From Europe, we understand how he has been elected, but we don't understand how the impeachment hasn't been a success.
    I've read more and more republicans are against him. Let's hope he goes away and can't face Biden during the november election.

    I can't speak for Thom, but I find Quote Investigator to be the most thorough of the quote fact check sites that I have seen, though sometimes a president's official archive site is more likely to have addressed the quote in question.

    The D-party did well to decide Biden's VP as senator Kamala Harris. But if they ("deep" D's) really want the young people to come out and vote and support them, they still have a lot of talking (bargaining?) to do with their expert on the issue, namely senator Bernard Sanders. And they better hurry up. Last minute announcements risk of being seen as fake and intended only for a quick and "dirty" political gain.

    Unless, D-party wants to ignore for the second time (second warning) its "left" (whatever that is supposed to mean) wing. There may be no third warning. Things (thanks to technology) are moving rapidly, and so does the train, which maybe ahead of its estimated time of arrival.

    Mark Meadows may think Trump will lose so is trying to steal the fixtures and burn down the house before getting evicted.

    "I have a case for the American people. It is to deliver the ultimate verdict on the high crimes and misdemeanors of Donald. J. Trump. You are the witnesses, the victims and — most important — the judges and jury. Only you can stop him — or allow the high crime spree to continue." -- Norman Eisen

    Gee whataboob, how despicably sexist and racist of you!

    How would a Trumpee know what "intelligent people" think?

  • America's Chief Grifter Strikes Again   2 days 7 hours ago

    "our elections are under attack from both foreign governments and the Post Office. . ."

    ? ? Shouldn't that be re-worded?

    Hello! Very interesting post, I want to share it on my https://www.blogger.com/about/. What do you think about it?

  • America's Chief Grifter Strikes Again   2 days 10 hours ago

    Thom, it's Biden's VP pick week.

    Surely you must agree that most intelligent people pick their pets based on gender, color, and the smell of their hair, not a VP of the United States.

    This is a good one.

    Reklama w tramwaju to miecz obosieczny, którym bardzo łatwo możemy ośmieszyć zarówno swój biznes, jak i samych siebie. Nie warto oszczędzać, chcąc wywołać zamieszanie i podziw. Należy dołożyć wszelkich starań, aby takie zabiegi marketingowe wypaliły. Także starań finansowych. Potraktuj to jako inwestycję i zgłoś się do jakiejś firmy specjalizującej się w takim marketingu w Twoim mieście.

Trump is willing to let more people die to steal an election. Will he get away with it?

Thom plus logo Last year the US Postal Service delivered over 1 billion prescriptions to Americans. It's the main way that veterans get their medications, and increasingly all across America people are getting their pharmaceuticals that way.

Donald Trump doesn't care. He doesn't care how many people die because their medications are late and they go into diabetic shock or their blood pressure explodes. He just doesn't care.
