Today, I again heard Tom Hartmann repeat his desire to have a military/government service draft. I cannot believe that anyone with even a passing knowledge about "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" would endorse such a plan. Liberty means choice, but a draft eliminates choice, about a job or a life path, entirely. One big reason for the massive protests against the Vietnam War was that it was fought by dint of a military draft, a draft which in many ways was unfair, especially to the poor or powerless (I'm looking at you, GW and Trump).
Just recently released is a video of a mentally ill gunman entering Seattle Pacific University in 2014 with a shotgun and 50 rounds of ammo.
The gunman enters the school doors brandishing a shotgun, points at the first student he encounters, then turns and fires a fatal shotgun blast at an unsuspecting student walking down a flight of stairs.
I have a money-making challenge for our fearless corporate news media. I bet they can not go for one day (any 24 hour period) and not say or display the word "Trump" on any of their shows. Hell, I bet they can not go for two continuous hours of mainstream viewing (7:00 AM to 11:00 PM) and not say the word "Trump"!
Cleveland is Democratic voting, 53% African-American, 10% Hispanic city. It, also, is about half female. I remember when the Republican party picked Cleveland the pundits couldn't decide if it was courageous and reaching out to groups not normally represented by the Republicans decision or a very stupid one. Now it would seem to be clearly stupid, but I think the left has to be careful.
Dear Senator Sanders: Although you are too modest to admit it, i thank you for starting the new American political revolution. And thank you for being honest, sincere, authentic, and selfless--and for your tireless compassion on behalf of the American people. In summary, like TOTALLY thank you dude.
Is globalism ultimately greater than America First? Is the argument of Neoliberalism that we, as a global people, must all become equal and therefore the American standard of living for the 99% must inevitably become less? Or, better, that All standards of living worldwide should become lifted by the tide?
Verily thus saith the Lord God unto My flock in America: Thou shalt dump Trump, the billionaire bimbo.
For behold, "The Donna" is great at Real Estate fraud, but would flunk a simple Semister Finals test in college Political Science, Economics, American and Western World History, and Psychology.
The destruction of middle east countries like Iraq and Libya by western powers lead by the United States has always been about the oil. Over one million and a half Middle East (Muslim) citizens have been killed as a result of the attacks by US lead forces.
I really resent Disney putting up fences along their lake and working to catch the alligators and remove them. This is just another politically correct move to appease some safety do-gooders. Our founding fathers guaranteed the right of association to all American citizens. Many of us like alligators and feel more comfortable with them around our neighborhoods. Instead of restricting alligators, we should establish mental health clinics to counsel those who have an unfounded fear of them.
