Inspection- There is NO Such Thing as 'Fake News'

If it is news, it’s not fake. News is a measurable quantity. The two terms are mutually exclusive, but together not as clever as some seem to think. In fact those who use it the most, use it frequently, are often purveyors of what some call “fake news.”

Trump? An "innocent" man? Hah! And BILLY JOEL? Rolling in the floor LAUGHING!

Trump? An innocent man? Hah!

INDEED, a truly “innocent” man- and a man with “NOTHING to hide” - would “CLEARLY NOT”:

Poor & Middle Class "GOP" Voters: Exactly WHAT PLANET are you living on?

Anyone with a remote sense of intellect AND honesty can CLEARLY see, AND concede, that the “economic interests" of “the 99%” - and especially those within the “bottom 50%” of incomes, in America, are CLEARLY and ONLY served by the political platform and legislative agenda of the DEMOCRATS. It's just an ABSOLUTE FACT. Case closed. Next case!

YES there was MASSIVE COLLUSION

YES there was COLLUSION that put Donald Trump in the Presidency , a collusion by Vlad Putin, right wing run voter subversion tools like Analytica , FOXfalseNEWS, Russians bots, Americas billionaire owned media, republican controlled states disenfranchising poor and minorities , plus voter apathy and even ill timed comments by FBI head James Comey that STOLE the presidency from Hillary Clinton. But even after all of this collusion TRUMP STILL LOST the total electoral vote to Hillary Clinton by 3 million.

messaging a response to white people's notion of "reverse racism"

Messaging for Thom that may be helpful:

In response to your conversation with a caller this morning asking the question... can people of color be racist? And your desire for new wording...

RACISM is PREJUDICE plus POWER.

(Just like SEXISM is PREJUDICE plus POWER.)

Postal Service

It is true there is a decline in the volume of mail due to the rise in internet and smart phone activities but one of the largest loss over the past decade is due to legislation passed during the Bush presidency that required the USPS's health and pension funds had to be funded for all employees present and future for the next 75 years AND could only be paid out of postage stamp sales!!!

Trump Throws a Rod, Cowen Burns Out a Piston: Stormy Kicks Both of Their Asses

A good day in court for justice. Judge Kimba Wood (originally a Reagan judicial appointee) seems to be taking no BS from the right's lawyer surrogates. This is how things are going in the current pit stop at the Trump 6900 International.

"Do we look like guys who need hookers?”

YES !

Inspection- Boris and Natasha Politics

Meet Boris and Natasha, two dimensional cartoon characters with the usual one dimensional personalities that cartoon characters had. To be honest: content-wise, Boris and Natasha were closer to three dimensional than many cartoon characters back then. You knew exactly what Yogi was going to do, or Astro the dog, Tom and Jerry.
