Trumps Election Fraud Commission #ApartheidCommission

We all are aware of the goal of Trumps Election Fraud Commission, voter suppression. Most notably the supression that the Republicans have concentrated on are groups of people who are loyal Democratic voters. We know from the rash of voter ID laws, Florida's purge in 2000, "Gerry Rigging" and Kris Kobach's cross check program that the groups most commonly targeted are blacks, asians, and people who do not have financial means to jump through the hoops put in place.


Trouble is PSYCHOPATHS rule the world , the very small but pathologically aggressive few who through their intelligence, sheer lack of remorse and dis-inhibited, egotistical traits , find the sociopathic nature of capitalism conducive to the mental disorder, which by its design provides a breeding ground and rewards for this dangerous mental disorder.

Democratic Party Strategy Authored by Oligarchs?

For years Progressives and many unbiased political analysts have expressed anger and disbelief over continued loosing Democratic Party election strategies aimed down a suspossedly optimal middle. Why not state the obvious? The DC consultants authoring these political strategies are paid for their advice. What's the likelyhood their recommended political strategies for Democrats are written to please the same oligarchs that fund Republicans and those currently controlling the establishment Democratic Party?


Omar Khadr now thirty just received ten million cheque from the Canadian government along with an apology for the suffering he endured at the hands of the Americans at GITMO.

What Good are Winning Policies if Nobody can Vote?

I had started writing this prior to Thom’s article “Are We Past the Point of No Return.” His essay puts the focus on the damage being done by the GOP but fails to address what I believe is the real issue that needs to be resolved. That problem is Interstate Crosscheck and voter suppression. Putting Democrats in control can reverse whatever the GOP does, but putting new people in office is the first problem that needs to be resolved. Without the power of the ballot, we the people can do nothing to change the course of this country.

Polar Ice, Albedo and Hysteresis

The Larsen C ice shelf - with an area about the size of Delaware and a volume near that of Lake Michigan - is poised to break away from Antarctica at any moment. The continual loss of sea ice (and glaciers) is contributing to climate change by a decrease of the Earth's albedo (reflectivity).

Does Trump's temperament make him unfit to be presicent?

Yes, not only his temperament, but also that he hasn't mentally grown up yet. He's still acting like he's in high school or, more accurately, middle school. Such a person does not belong in the White House and makes our country the laughing stock of the rest of the world.

Single Payer

Around a 1% Tax of 300 million US citizens would pay for their own Single Payer Healthcare.

Progressive Media

A Progressive Media Foundation could be started that accepts small scale donations and accumulate enough to purchase 51% of CNN.

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.
