Thom should invite Bo Gritz to be a guest.

Bo could talk about Richard Armitage's big time opium business and the support G.H.W.Bush gave it. Among many other things.


Dr. Ben Carson for president?

Dr. Ben Carson is intelligent, but misguided. Concerned about minority rights and presently visiting inner city neighborhoods talking about reform, nevertheless he is a complete warmonger who wants to shrink the government and cut programs. How that is going to help inner city youth I don’t know. From what I know, Ben Carson is a climate change denier, wants to defund schools, for medical marijuana, for getting rid of the IRS, for guest worker programs, and for as much military funding as possible.

NSA: the security apparatus of Oligarchies is to secure and enhance profits, not people and the quality of their lives.

And to that end there are acceptable losses both in terms of People and the things that effect the quality of their lives. But don’t be mistaken, benefits, if any, to the people and the quality of their lives occurs only when incidental to the primary purposes of securing and enhancing profit.

That is your President O’bama.

Appearing on "Lou Dobbs Tonight" on Wednesday, Ann Coulter said: "I wish Fox News would go a little bit easier on Hillary Clinton....She's the one we want to run against."

It underlies the fear the Republicans have of running against Bernie Sanders.

The system is rigged


The whole of the Bernie sensation can be boiled down to this: The American people are looking for some sort of reassurance that someone will do something to level the playing field. It is well known that Hillary will NOT prosecute any of her Wall Street criminal friends.

HSBC admits to laundering drug $ and no one gets prosecuted. The game is rigged. What would an executive at a big bank have to do in order to get the DOJ to go after them?

Erosion of the middle class part 1

Rancid cash-whore Hillary: Clinton foundation has taken millions$$$ from ExxonMobil$ and ConocoPhillips$.

If that doesn’t say “the children of the little people can get fucked, I'm making me some wealth” I don’t know what does.
