  • Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?   4 weeks 3 days ago

    Anybody that could whip a guaranteed shoe-in like the Clinton machine which outspent him two to one, is not lucky, it is pure unadulterated genius.

    Relax and enjoy the fruits of your 401k and rejoice in the fact you did not follow the advice of some who way too prematurely predicted it's demise.

    One side note; had the governments SS funds been even partly invested in the Dow, we would have SS fully funded for decades into the future.

  • Democrats need to begin using the right word: Extortion   4 weeks 4 days ago

    Perhaps the Democrats, the media, and everyone else not hopelessly infected with Republican brain-rot should quit defining impeachment merely as a legal concept in the traditional sense and think of it more as an imperative to counter an existential abuse of power that threatens the core of our democracy, whether or not the abuse fits easily into established case law.

    Not only has this illegitimate president and criminally minded punk committed verifiable felonies both before and after his inauguration (and allegedly during), more importantly, Trump's entire pattern of behavior is also that of a megalomaniacal malignant narcissist drunk on money and power. Using the highest position of the public trust primarily to serve himself rather than the People, while deliberately failing to protect basic constitutional principles -- e.g., no foreign interference in our elections! -- is a naked abuse of power such that impelled the framers to include an impeachment clause as an acceptable political remedy to remove a dangerous degenerate who, though duly elected (or installed by the Electoral College), is clearly unfit to serve.

    The disposition of Trump's many other legal transgressions may continue in great earnest (hopefully) within the regular court system once he's removed from office, negating whatever questionably protected legal status is supposedly afforded the presidency nowadays. Of course, since the general election is just 12 months away, notwithstanding any further damage to America's credibility and to Mother Earth's survivability easily imagined to happen by then, removal from office by losing reelection would accomplish the same goal in a much cleaner way than would an improbable impeachment conviction in the Senate, an inherently undemocratic institution anyway -- if indeed he is not destined to win reelection, which certainly can't be a foregone conclusion.

    Since Nixon was pardoned, look how fuzzy the lines have become in the neverending battle for supremacy between the so-called co-equal branches of government, a self-destructive battle antithetical to the constitutionally mandated framework that separates power for a reason. How many times must our bedrock principles be reaffirmed, flowers to cultivate, or will they simply become lost and forgotten by future generations tangled up in the stubborn plutocratic and authoritarian weeds that our apathetic generation allowed to take root?

    Still, an impeachment inquiry and any resulting articles passed in the House, as well as a public trial in the Senate, albeit shat upon by Republicans, should loudly inform the electorate -- and the future beyond -- of the clear choice next November: Bring this wanted felon to justice and reaffirm the principle under our system of government that no one, especially a president, is above the law.

  • Now We Know How Democrats Can Win...   4 weeks 5 days ago

    We can't afford to give people free stuff, sais the Right. How shallow their thinking is. Our money will still pay for everything. We, on the other hand, are freed from some of the responsibilities of debt. The checks will still be written. Just not by you. You can still be rich. You can still be poor. Not everything will be "free." Just the essentials. (Which you have already inadvertently paid for.)

  • Democrats need to begin using the right word: Extortion   4 weeks 5 days ago

    So your phone screener dumped me before I explained what I wanted to say: We should use all of the words: Bribery, Extortion, Obstruction . . . and Quid pro Quo. LAWYERS know what Quid pro Quo means so we should keep it on the tool rack with all our other hammers. In this season of Impeachment it helps to have an issue with legal implications to use. If you really don't need me, don't come around asking for money.

  • Democrats need to begin using the right word: Extortion   4 weeks 6 days ago

    So Trump was right when he said, "there was no Quid Pro Quo". So we have Quid Pro Quo, extortion, bribery, campaign contriutions, speach (money is now speach), threats of being fired. promise of promotion, etc. Different variations of the same thing. It's rampant. and nothing will stick. Eeryone is guilty to some degree.

  • Did Kushner Okay the Abduction of Khashoggi?   5 weeks 5 hours ago

    Thom, have you had one good day since Trump was elected?

    Would this help make it all better?

    President Trump should make a declaration that he is identifying as a woman. The left will have to admit the absurdity of their gender ideology or accept and celebrate “Donna Trump” as the first woman President, thus beating Hillary, Liz Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand to the glorious goal of one of their “female firsts”.

    Furthermore, if he remains married to Melania, he will also be the first gay president and the first lesbian president. He will also be the first lesbian president married to an immigrant! What a most glorious event for the democrats to celebrate.

  • Will the GOP Succeed In Destroying Social Security This Time?   5 weeks 15 hours ago

    They don't call the Republicans the party of "NO" for nothing, when it comes to any benefits to the common working person. Instead: The GOP shovel the money to the rich, and eliminate any help program that would feed, clothe, house a needy person.

    I'm old enough to remember when there was true democracy in the '60-'70, when life was not an endless grind of struggle to survive, and Republicans were more sane and mature.

  • Will the GOP Succeed In Destroying Social Security This Time?   5 weeks 18 hours ago

    Trump has shown that you can work shorter hours. lol

    Bernie would be able to surround himself with competent people which woiuld ease the burden.

    And if he resigned after a couple of years, his VP would be well prepared to take over the job and win the next election and train up their own successor.

  • Will the GOP Succeed In Destroying Social Security This Time?   5 weeks 1 day ago

    I like Bernie also. But I am 69 and think of working long hours under stress like I use to and have no desire for more. Even Jimmy Carter said that if he was 15 years younger (80) he could not handle the job. And he is doing good at 95. No matter what I will vote for the Democratic nominee and Trump is proof that age has its affects.

    I have to admit, I still favour Bernie, having heard so much from him over the years. If I had a vote, I'd be paying more attention to the others.

    When I hear somebody has an MBA, I tend to wonder if they have been thoroughly indoctrinated in the current economic system, since the universities will want to fit them for jobs in that system. But obviously Steyer is not one of the herd.

  • Once a Mobster - Always a Mobster?   5 weeks 1 day ago

    Average polling to date -- even before public hearings -- indicates that nearly half the nation wants Trump impeached and removed from office.

    After a month or so of public hearings, the number of disgusted citizens is likely to rise, at least until it hits the upper limit blocked by an intransigent one-third, who are gaslighted into chanting nonsense by the proponents of impossible deep-state conspiracy theories taken as right-wing religion. Politically, those lost souls are beyond redemption.

    The further demise of our once-great democracy will be on full display for the world to witness as a corrupt, cowardly cabal of Republican senators, who over-represent their gullible minority, once again defy the Constitution and the powerless masses and prostrate themselves before their almighty masters, the wealthy few.

    Now, imagine Trump's second term...
