  • When the Economy Crashes Will America Move to the Hard Right or Left?   2 weeks 2 days ago

    Where are the gas chambers and the work camps? I am pretty sure the Jews of WWII would have kissed the earth if they had been in detention camps like we are providing on the southern border.

  • How Should the Democrats Deal with the Fact That Trump's Base Loves His Cruelty on the Border?   2 weeks 2 days ago

    Good Friday HotCoffee, I hope you had a great fourth of July. It was fun watching all the leftie/socialists hand wringing over the display in Washington DC yesterday. President Trump gave a great speech and avoided politics. Very moving to watch the Blue Angels flyover. Also interesting to see the Abrams M1 tank is now back into production. Good to see a president that supports the military back in the WH. President mom jeans was a handful if you were a supporter of the armed forces and their related equipment. Oddly, Trumps proposal for a Space Force makes total sense as in the future, technology attacks damage will exceed the need for manpower, bullets and bombs. President Reagan had it right and too few listened.

    I hear you in CA will get yet another new law. Pelosi's nephew just signed a "hair discrimination law into effect. No, you can make it up. It's real and begs the question when someone is injured on the job because their dredlocks were caught in the machinery, do they sue the company or Newsome or the State of CA. Either way, thank God we have big brother watching your every move. I know it's beautiful but I could not live in your state but I suspect you are remote enough to not be directly affected.

    back later.

    The truth is that the democrats, and republicans, are just as much to blame for the invasion as anything that Trump has done (maybe more so). By the way, I thought the democrats were saying there was no crisis. Everybody remember that ill-fated proclamation? Remember the first pictures of children in cages? You do remember they were from the Obama administration? Remember AOC's fake tears? There really is no question now the democrats are for open borders regardless of the consequences to the country. The presidential candidates are trying to come up with non-sensical explanations of their positions. This is not a winning issue for the dems. NO ONE likes to see children put into holding cells, or separated from their parents. But most of them should not even be there to start with. They are there illegally. Their parents are breaking the law. If you don't like the law, then change it.

    Trump has been saying since he took office that congress needs to act to address the illegal immigration disaster. And he is right. Trump maintains that he is just trying to enforce the law which exists now. Of course, everyone really knows the democrats don't give a rats behind about the health and well being of illegal immigrants. If they really cared about their condition, they would work with the republicans to come up with common sense legislation. I know thats an oxymoron as far the dems are concerned, but one can hope.

    Troll #1:

    No, that's not what Thom is saying; that's what you are saying -- dredged-up bilge water from a brain that filters out reality, a microcosm of Trump's America.

    Troll #2:

    As usual, you exude racism from every pore of your deplorable basket.

    Thom's Blog graciously, although disingenuously, provides a platform for trolls to spread hate and disinformation. You should be more appreciative in abusing your freedom of speech.

    Not because they want to but because they have to, Central American families are fleeing for their lives and for their children's future. They are facing unimaginable hardship and danger at home, risking death, rape, and all manner of human predations to seek asylum and a new life in the "land of the free."

    Whatever further inhumanity greets our fellow human beings at the U.S. border by Trump's unholy gulag of concentration camps and jackbooted thugs flaunting shoulder-patch flags -- a broken system perpetrating atrocities in our name that nonetheless pales in comparison to the nightmarish dystopia from which the refugees are fleeing -- such gratuitous cruelty of right-wing Republicans will never deter them. Neither did the monumental struggles of their own epic journeys deter our desperate yet eternally optimistic ancestors.

    The American Flag does not represent our military might nor the strong over the weak. And it certainly does not represent the bigoted viewpoint of a smarmy blowhard who emulates the dictators he so admires.

    No, one of the greatest strengths of the world's melting pot is our ethnic diversity, not homogeny. We can't all be pasty-faced "European descendants" with big bellies concealing scary guns, and big butts tattooed with the "Southern Cross," a traitor's flag. We can't all be self-righteous, hypocritical cowards who embody Trump's worst pathologies; who scapegoat other people as the cause of all their problems; who bully and torture innocent men, women, and children to satisfy their deepest depravities given agency by Trump's heavy-handed policies.

    It would be a much better country -- a much better world! -- if the vile infestation of racist white nationalists and hateful Christianists were displaced by the brave, family-oriented, freedom-seeking immigrants who risk everything to reach a sanctuary for the downtrodden, to become a functioning part of this grand experiment in democracy, to gain citizenship, work hard, and follow the founding principles enshrined in the Constitution.

    These soaring principles shining forth from the American flag are the exact opposite of the low-minded wickedness lurking behind the unprincipled proclamations of an autocratic predator, who is molesting the flag. This ridiculous fool is a fake patriot with fake bone spurs who will go down in history as a stain on that flag, which is meant to represent the true patriots-- of all ethnicities -- who fought and died, lived and struggled to build this bountiful nation.

    May God have mercy on America's soul.

    Today, a megalomaniacal, lowlife flimflammer is trying to make the nation's birthday celebration all about himself, just as Tricky Dick had done when facing imminent impeachment. His Highness Trump and his traveling clown show are frantically escalating his doomed campaign to distract his blind devotees from "...What [they're] seeing and what [they're] reading..." His stunning corruption, criminality, and lies have now reached all the way up to the lofty steps of the Lincoln Memorial (the first Republican president, dizzy from spinning in his grave), and on a day cherished by citizens of all stripes and colors.

    Instead, in these dark times, our hearts and minds should find common cause with those unwashed masses languishing in their own filth and stench and sicknesses; with those traumatized children forcibly separated from their loved ones and abandoned in cold, windowless cages like wild animals without showers, private toilets, clean clothes, soap, toothpaste, decent food, fresh water -- or without enough food, water, hope, consolation, and the human touch. "Welcome to America!"

    Their struggle is our struggle.

  • When the Economy Crashes Will America Move to the Hard Right or Left?   2 weeks 3 days ago

    REALLY? I don't think that's quite what the DHS IG report said -- in fact that report confirmed EVERYTHING that AOC and all the rest of the media have said to you useful PPPP (thats short for Putin Plutocrat Publican Party) idjits -- Trump has his own string of concentration camps similar in practically every aspect to Hitler's concentration camps for Jews.

  • How Should the Democrats Deal with the Fact That Trump's Base Loves His Cruelty on the Border?   2 weeks 3 days ago

    So if the Dems want to skip the annual Independence Day parade – ostensibly due to the cost – let them. They’re only spoiling it for themselves. I suspect they would have complained about the cost of our actual independence as well as they certainly don’t seem to approve of any of the nation’s founding principles. Is there anything about America the Dems don’t want to destroy?

    Happy 4th HotCoffee.

    I really don't pay a lot of attention to Hatrmann any more. I am convinced he is just trying to keep his income afloat by putting out ten books per year and stirring yo hatred for the benefit of his lemmings. It looks from the title of his latest rant he is pissed because Trump is using obama's "cages" to house illegals.

    If you want a flavor of his tripe, go to his youtube channel and you will only have to read the titles of the 5 minute clips to understand what I mean.

    That said, neither of us will have to endure antifa while watching fireworks tonight, that is a pleasant thought. It's a tribute to leftieism to see how Portland and Seattle have destroyed themselves in just a decade or two.

    Your videos were beautiful but I did discover you are a bigoted misogynistic racist.

    In the first video there were far more old white men than women and the total absence of anyone of significant color made it clear the conductor despised black people.

    I do give you credit as at 2:28 into the video there was a what appeared to be a woman of Asian descent playing the violin. By the stern look on her face, she has been obviously oppressed all her life. In fact, the few women in the choir were clearly forced to sing ala "The Handmaids Tale".

    The second video shockingly showed only black people. Great vocalists but I saw no overtly gay, lesbian, or transexuals.

    Lee Greenwood? He is a flippin white guy from just south of LA. Could you not find some white nazi to sing that song? Greenwood is far too normal if your intent is to destroy America.

    What's going on here? You need to be more "inclusive" and "community" oriented.

    Get "woke" kid.

    I just can't resist.

    Happy Birthday America!!!!!

    Progressivism is the support for our advocacy for the improvement of society by reform. As a philosophy, it is based on the idea of progress, which asserts that advancements in science, technology, economic development, and social organization are vital to the improvement of the human condition.

  • The American Dream is Alive & Well In China   2 weeks 4 days ago

    Thom,

    I love your show and very much appreciate what you do, listen most days, and nearly always agree with you. However, you couldn't be more wrong regarding this post about China and what you said several times onair 6/17/19. I was totally taken aback when I tuned in and heard you talk about health care and home ownership in China. I honestly felt embarrassed for you because of your lack of knowledge on the topic, and the fact that you accepted Ellen Brown's article at face value without doing further research. Her article read like Chinese government propaganda.

    My partner is from China, has a PhD from Yale in Anthropology, and has published a number of scholarly books on China. She visits China for 4-6 weeks at least once every year. I also know many Chinese people living in the U.S., as well as in China (and keep in regular touch with a number of them).

    Some of your claims:

    Single-payer health care based on the Canadian system. No healthcare poverty. I found Ellen Brown’s article on Truthdig you were apparently referencing, which states: “Health care is also subsidized by the government, with a state-run health insurance program similar to Canada’s.” I’m shocked that anyone could say that, and am offended by her ignorance.

    I hate the state of the U.S. health care system in many ways, and am appalled that we STILL don’t have healthcare for all (something that upsets me daily), but the reality is that China’s health care system is horrific! Comparing it to Canada's is a complete joke:

    1. Rather than not having to worry about costs as in Canada, Chinese people have to pay upfront before being treated (even in emergency situations). If you or your family doesn’t pay, you don't get treated.
    2. Everyone in China knows that doctors have to be given bribes if decent care is expected. It's the way the 3rd-world system works there.
    3. Many unnecessary treatments/surgeries are performed simply so doctors can make more money (e.g., the ridiculously high rate of caesarian section births, surgeries performed with little or no chance of survival, etc.).
    4. When a patient goes into the exam room to see a doctor, there are typically a number of other patients there, all vying for the doctor’s attention or waiting in line. So no patient privacy at all.
    5. Nurses often provide little care or attention in hospitals, as family members are expected to take care of their loved ones, including providing food for them.
    6. Bathrooms in hospitals are often unbelievably filthy and unsanitary, unless family members clean them.

    I could go on. But it is so bad that when my partner or Chinese friends tell stories about healthcare in China, I can barely stand to listen and have been known to ask them to stop, as it was too painful for me to continue listening.

    90% own homes. That’s just ridiculous on so many levels! My partner laughed when I told her you and the article said that.

    70% of millennials own homes. Also ridiculous! (and do the math concerning the above claim). I know many Chinese millennials, and the only ones who own homes are the few whose parents could afford to buy apartments for them (expecting to live with them and be taken care of, in return, from an early retirement age for the rest of their lives). Of course there are also situations where a number of family members pool their resources and live in an apartment with several generations, which makes the comparison to the U.S. even more inaccurate. Additionally, credit, including mortgages, is much newer to China, and banks cannot be trusted.

    The only thing you said that was accurate is that they aren’t burdened with student debt (though students have to sacrifice their childhoods to get into college, and parents often push them to the point of abuse to do so).

    We all make mistakes, but keep up the good and important work you are doing!!

  • Time for a Nation Service Program & A Draft?   2 weeks 4 days ago

    I have been proposing a return to a national draft for several years. Thom's arguments are good. There are others.

    I consider the all-volunteer military (avm) a disaster. That became evident when the US military actually had to go to war. The avm is too expensive. Young recruits don't generally have families - and all the immense associated expenses (braces!?). Benefit costs are tremendous.

    The avm wears people out (with multiple deployments) and spits them out.

    The avm is forced to hire expensive contractors to perform functions historically carried out by enlisted personnel. Too few people.

    I like the idea of forcing young people - both young men and women after high school - into a 2 year commitment of national service. Multiple choices of where and how to serve. We live in a remarkable country, and we need to provide some form of pay-back for what we have here.

    I don't know the statistics about male and female rape before the avm, but it seems to have increased dramatically with the avm.

    If corporations are to be treated as people, we need different ways to punish them. In 1987, the NCAA punished the SMU football team with the "Death Penalty". The team could not give football scholarships for a year. The program shut down totally for a year.

    In additions to fines and a few criminal charges brought against a small number of employees for egregious crimes, I propose that judges ban guilty corporations from hiring new employees for a specific period. That would include corporations not being able to hire temps, contractors, or sub-contractors. during that period. There are a lot potential implications of imposing that ban.

    1) The generals don't like the draft.
