Inspection- Deplorables

  Yes, is it time yet to agree half of them are deplorable yet?
  Hillary was right. Of course she certainly wasn't always right. She: like many candidates, certainly made more than her share of mistakes. But we also certainly have to admit that after all the mistakes Trump made makes one wonder how he supposedly "won."
 More on that in a moment.

Idaho state Rep. Bryan Zollinger: ‘Plausible’ that Charlottesville violence was a setup

An Idaho state representative says it’s “plausible” that the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month was orchestrated to make President Trump look like a racist.

The Great Dictator, Charlie Chaplin's 1940 film, speaks to today

Just saw this film after many years at a local theater. Especially noteworthy following all the humor and jibes is the final speech at the end of the film. Check it out.

CLASS WAR IN AMERICA -The POLITICS of Socioeconomic Class

This post concerns an article ("pasted" below), which was previously published by someone else and, although dated April, 2014, is still quite pertinent today - as well as VERY "eye-opening" and worth a read.

"These Confederate Statues incite violence". Uh no, they don't. That's not how things work

I heard someone say "These Confederate statues incite violence" on MSNBC.

Neo Nazis, white supremists and Trump did us a favor

Think about the body and how it's immune system responds to threats. Once a threat is identified, it mounts a robust defense. But some viruses and cancers can be hard to detect until they have too good a foothold and are too hard to combat. By the time we realize there's a problem, it's too late, and they can lead to the death of the patient.

Too dumb to tweet!?

GW IQ~70. Reagan/Alzheimer~37. Neither dumb enough 2 buy FOX Pershing bullet myth. Only Inspire an enemy. [I'm too dumb too comprehend Twitter otherwise I'd create a Hashtag] #dumbesttoolinthewhitehouseever (or something shorter. Good thing I'm not president. Jack Dorsey suspends me every time I even attempt to tweet).

This nation (and world) needs a big dose of Unconditional Other Acceptance

It’s a term coined by the late Dr. Albert Ellis. To me, it’s means choosing to see whatever others think, feel, say or do as being understandable given what their life experiences have been.

I'm hearing a lot of it from neo-Nazis and white supremists lately.

The Power of Our Pocketbooks

I'm just an ordinary pissed off American and it is my belief now is the time to send the President and corporate America a very loud message. In 1955 the citizens of Montgomery, Alabama used the power of their pocketbooks to send the USA and the Montgomery Bus Line a message about racial segregation. 380 days later they were successful when the Supreme Court ruled Alabama and Montgomery law requiring segregated buses unconstitutional. The organizers were the greatest, brilliant, and got their message across in a peaceful manner.
