Inspection- Loki Cokie Roberts

Is Ms. Roberts actually Loki in disguise? You know, Loki: legendary troublemaker and bad advice giver? Or maybe one of the Bad Idea Bears from Avenue Q who tell you to do what you shouldn’t?
 Wouldn’t be the first public figure who leans rightward to take on that role, Rush Limbaugh being one of the most famous. Why anyone would take advice from someone determined to sabotage you I have no idea.

Standing Rock Pipeline Struggle

Tom mentioned he will cover this with panel discussion type shows this week, or whatever format--I can't wait to hear it!

If you live anywhere that either will have a pipeline constructed, or whose spillage will affect your water quality(perhaps quantity too)(like in many locations), what can you do to stop it? How can anyone stop it? Who's in charge? Will your local and county officials listen to your appeal and intervene against the pipeline construction?

If Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are “Progressive,” Then the Word Has Lost All Meaning

How the term ‘progressive’ became an empty marketing tool for corporate Democrats.

BY Kathleen Geier

What’s a progressive, anyway?

Donald the Builder Visit's LA and Hands Out Toys_ Let'em Eat PlayDoh

Could the optics be worse. Trump and Pence impose themselves into the flood emergency. Instead of searching houses for trapped people, police and emergency responders have to dilute their efforts to deal with these political gawkers. Like many of his so-called building projects and failed schemes, PlayDoh was the proper building material. Why didn't they at least bring some food and water? What numbskull would suggest PlayDoh and what numbskull of a candidate would have the poor taste to hand that crap out to flood victims?


The right wing have numerous times tried to stir up division between English and French here in Canada, using hatred and differences to divide and weaken our society.

They've tried to destroy our half century old single payer health care system and replace it with Americas failed for profit system. They've tried underfunding social programs, punishing the poor and disadvantaged, who usually vote liberal.

They've talked of privatization of seniors pensions, turning hundreds of billions of pension money over to their friends and their corporate casino.


WHAT ELSE BUT STUPID would you call a society that would consider re-electing a Republican party that just years ago who on its watch allowed the most devastating attack in Americas history. Through corruption, incompetence and mismanagement collapsed the US economy nearly causing a world wide great depression,while doubling Americas debt. Caused the death of thousands of Americans military by starting two unwinnable wars which have cost Americas treasury an estimated 3000 billion dollars. Disgraced Americans worldwide with the use of kidnap and torture.


Each an everyday Professor Hartmann teaches Americans(and the world) what American schools are continually failing to teach and that is history and civics. Everyday Thom makes us all a little bit smarter. Civics studies focus on the United States government and how we all fit in the framework of that structure.

Call It What It Is - The Politically Motivated Murder of Poor Pregnant Women AND Their Kids

If a State Government denies poor women prenatal care and in a two year period their death rate doubles, that's not politics or religious freedom. It's the unjustified taking of these women's lives, AS WELL AS THE LIVES OF EVERY CHILD THEY MIGHT HAVE BROUGHT INTO OUR WORLD.

It seems it's all racism, all the time w/the GOP...Neo-Nazi robocall hits Iowa on Molly Tibbett’s murder: “KILL THEM ALL. ” Richard Wolff drops by about the National Debt.
