North Korea Bitch Slaps the United States…Again.

Exactly four weeks ago, in response to accelerated missile launchings and threats by North Korea, U.S. President Donald Trump responded by stating: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen... he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before." North Korea responded with even more missile launches.

HOT HOUSE

UNDER these RIGHT WINGERS the NUMBER ONE CO2 polluter won't even admit climate change exists. IF you accept CHINA has become AMERICA's factory, then combined the number one polluter in the world is the USA.

Cop who arrested Utah nurse put on administrative leave: gung ho fever still stinking up the ranks

I am God. I have power. I have a gun. You will do what I say, or else!

When are we going to unload these morons from police forces?

And the *president has promised to start giving these characters military equipment again. Another brilliant idea from King Donald.

WHINNY LITTLE CANADIAN BITCHES

WELL Canada's CBC which used to be considered one of the finest news sources in the world , has digressed to TABLOID journalism with a story of a Canadian vacationing in CUBA destroying a TV set and being charged ten times what it would cost in Canada to replace. INCENSED i couldn't help but take pot shots at the comment section of the article AND here are just a few of my half dozen or so comments.

Pence vs. Trump

It is imperative that Donald Trump be removed or resign from office. He represents an existential threat to the nation. Obviously Pence is a horrible option, however Trump is inept, unfit, dishonest and unethical. Trump is incapable of critical and nuanced thinking making decisions based upon emotion and rarely with any detailed knowledge of the subject at hand. E.g. the healthcare bill.

Proposal Idea

We could raise the salary of congress members as much as it takes to get them to raise taxes on the top 10% of income earners.

As it is, the US Treasury is under funded compared to what it could be.

Republican Strategy or am I completely delusional?

When I look at a map of the U.S. that color-codes for Republican (red)/Democratic (blue) Governors, I see a strategically planned arrangement of states. Not for political reasons but for survival/economic reasons. Although many Republicans deny Climate Change is occurring, these maps reveal a different story. The Koch Brothers, having all the connections they do would have access to the same climate report information that the military does, but the military have been prevented from making best use of it. If they used it, that would confirm it.

America is not a racist country...

My fellow Americans,

If you believe that America is not a rascist country, please consider the following:

1) The first 12 Presidents of this country were slave owners--nothing racist there!

Addressing Pollution

I tuned in to the program a bit late because I just got home from work. I am interested in the topic of air pollution and what we can do to help.

Cobb County, Greg Abbott, Only Cops Kill Black People.

The remark wasn't funny. I agree with Tom Hartmann that it is a cultural issue. A Caucasian policeman attempting to inject levity into the situation is someone that is insensitive given today's environment of police shootings of Blacks proprotionately and per capita.

The officer has been suspended. He needs to be retrained before "hitting" the streets again. He probably needs to patrol with a senior Black officer that can provide him some insight into what the Black community experiences everyday in the Atlanta area besides the training.

Earth to Texas: This is what liberty from big government looks like

“We don’t need no stinkin’ guberment regulation, red tape or interference.” And we don’t need zoning and building codes, the absence of which allowed flood-prone areas to be developed for residential use. And, now that the rewards of this behavior are apparent to all, Texas politicians want us (the majority of communities where such precautions prevail) to help them put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

FDR's Statue Of Liberty speecc 1936

I would like to commend to all of you FDR's 1936 speech commemerating and rededicating the Staue Of Liberty on it's 50th anneversary. It is remarkable and only gains in sture with the years. This is especially true now!

Violence or Non Violence.

Charlottesville and Houston: the two extremes of human nature

Most people wrongly believe that it’s what others say and do, and what happens that makes them feel the way they do. But it’s really what we choose to think about such things, and in response to them.

One simple but important choice we have is what we focus on.

The America I Knew Has Almost Disappeared

Like an alcoholic family that won't discuss alcoholism (and proving Don Quixote's warning to never mention rope in the home of a man who's been hanged), far too many Americans are unwilling to acknowledge or even discuss the ongoing collapse of democracy in the United States.
