How this horror happened

Since 1932 till around 1995, the House and Senate were generally controlled by the Democrats. Around that date, Fox so called news entered the scene, partially at the wish of Nixon who remarked that the GOP needed their own network. Since the arrival of FOX and their defamitory remarks against the Democrats, control of the Senate and the House have has slowly dwindled away. In my 20 years in the Navy, as leaders, we were always reminded that you never make discouraging remarks to your subordinates; always display a positive attitude and promote a positive attitude.&nb

AYN RAND: Sociopath Who Admired a SERIAL KILLER

The best way to get to the bottom of Ayn Rand's beliefs is to take a look at how she developed the superhero of her novel, Atlas Shrugged, John Galt. Back in the late 1920s, as Ayn Rand was working out her philosophy, she became enthralled by a real-life American serial killer, William Edward Hickman, whose gruesome, sadistic dismemberment of 12-year-old girl named Marion Parker in 1927 shocked the nation.

They've done it--shut down climate change and lgbtq whitehouse websites

Heard this on KPFA (out here in California early afternoon). The new whitehouse has taken down both websites. There was considerable concern that they might take down the Climate Change website so many many people got together to get all the stored information and data and support systems because so much had accumilated and so many people used this data for research purposes.


NAFTA was created by REPUBLICAN's under REAGAN in the mid 1980's. In fact the American government under Reagan and then George HW Bush spent millions of tax payer dollars formulating NAFTA. NAFTA had been negotiated to completion by the time Bill Clinton took office , there had even been a George HW Bush ceremonial signing of the agreement, Clinton was honor bound to 'officially' sign the deal or the millions spent, the decade of energy of all governments during the republican negotiations would have been seen to have done in bad faith by the US government.

The Republican Chop Shop: Scrapping Government and Health Care

Any idiot can take a watch apart. In fact you can probably train monkeys to do that. You can’t teach a monkey to assemble a watch, but it looks like we are going to observe the spectable of them trying. And that is exactly what is going on if the Teapublican Party gets their way. Of course, they will tell you that they will replace the Affordable Care Act or rebuild it with the help of their monkey assembly line specialists.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
