Eight Planks of the People's Platform

Tired of winning yet? Makin’ ‘Merica More Better Again

So.....Trump’s voters think that their lives suck. And it seems that their plan is to assure that the rest of ‘Merica’s lives suck too. Misery loves losers and company. Temper tantrums galore among the base. Maybe that’s why they are happy with the daily chaos, bullshit and dysfunction for the past six months. Reminds me of a story that a dentist told me about a little spoiled, uncooperative brat who came in for a cavity repair.

Inspection- The Blessing That COULD Be Donald Trump

 I know, "blessing," right?

God's Bomb

From Children of the Days: A Calendar of Human History by Eduardo Galeano

August 6. GOD’S BOMB

In 1945, while this day was dawning, Hiroshima lost its life. The atomic bomb’s first appearance incinerated this city and its people in an instant.

Dealing with North Korea is like dealing with a troublesome teenager. There are better ways.

I want to compliment Secretary Tillerson on the approach he’s undertaken with North Korea, i.e. “We are not your enemy – we do not want regime change”.

Solar Panels on Roofs in China

Below is a picture my sister e-mailed me from a trip she took to China recently. Notice how many roofs have solar panels on them.


What could INSTANTLY raise TRUMPS approval ratings in the low 30's to the high 70's and secure his loony administration BUT WAR.

My god these American right wingers are psychopathic savages. IF TRUMP and the US think that China is just going stand by and watch as the US war machine pummel North Korea , the US is in for a big surprise. IF the US tries to NUKE Iran, they'll have a billion and a half raging Muslims to deal with.

US Constitution Article Two Section Three Clause Five ("Take Care Clause")

If, as he has said, President Trump undermines the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, if he acts contrary to the execution of the law and, in his words, will "...Let it fail", he will be in violation of the Take Care Clause of the Constitution and that will be grounds for Impeachment and possible removal from office.

He is arguably already in violation, as he has taken steps to limit or minimize federal payments to the states.

The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018

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. Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
