  1. The Impeachment Show

    Or, as I like to call it, The Sins Against Capitalism (Rabid Capitalism, as is customarily referred to as, The Moderate Middle.) Ladies and Gentlemen, in the blue corner, we have the rabid capitalists who identify as Democrats, and in the red corner, we have the rabid capitalists who identify as...

  2. Greta Thunberg Is Time's Person Of The Year for 2019

    And, of course, tRump, apparently angry and jealous of this goes to mocking the 16-year-old. If his supporters can't see the immaturity of this in tRump, there's nothing that can open their eyes. Donald's nimrod son Donald jr also took to getting in on it making it a gangbang, which is not shocking...

  3. tRump Pardons 3 US Members of Military of War Crimes

    https://www.militarytimes.com/news/pentagon-congress/2019/11/16/trump-grants-clemency-to-troops-in-three-controversial-war-crimes-cases/ What's tRump's message here? Anyone want to guess? I suppose if a society is going to raise murderers, don't be surprised when they murder, even though it...

  4. "Lock Him Up"

    That was the chant that tRump met with at last nights world series game in Washington, DC. Sports fans in the US tend to be on the conservative side, so, I'd surmise that this suggests tRump is facing an uphill climb to reelection. Pick your video....

  5. Corporate Media Supression of Positive Coverage for Progressive Views and Candidates

    I will often check-in with Politico (ties to the Clintons) or whatever I can access of the NYT or WaPo, not really to read their content, but rather, so I can learn what they are not informing their readers of, and it is significant. The corporate media is biased toward candidates who they can...

  8. Sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions

    There's a news article on the consequence of legalizing discrimination on the grounds of "sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions". So, was this the intended consequence of the Mississippi legislators when they brought it in three years ago? I have very little doubt at all....

  9. Alvin Zhakata's walk

    This is just plain heroic, there's no better word for it. What a guy. Europe went borderless within the majority of its area, I'd be delighted if Mr Zhakata's vision comes about in Africa too. It's a matter of justice that the principle of open borders extends fully across the planet but...

  10. Quiltbag

    The BBC has started making reference to the LGBTQIA+ community (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-48730483). This is beyond unsayable. I have tried reeding the passage aloud and whether I use the letters or the full text (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or...

  11. Moral outrage

    I think - I may be wrong, it's only a suggestion - that if you handed round a questionnaire asking what aspects of eighteenth century life were moral outrages on a scale way past any other, the most common answer would be slavery. My other suggestion is that if you ask the same question about...

Just after I finished reading this article (https://consortiumnews.com/2018/10/24/facebook-censorship-of-alternative-media-just-the-beginning-warns-top-neocon-insider/) a certain song popped into my head.

  13. Saudi Arabia Financed the Killers of American Troops I Commanded

    I don't believe we should have ever had troops in either Afghanistan or Iraq. We should have bombed Saudi Arabia instead. "Recently, the crimes of the Saudi government managed to pierce the Trump-all-the-time-Kanye-West-sometimes media-entertainment complex due to Riyadh’s likely murder of...

  14. Trump Reneging On Charity Promise

  15. Brett Kavanaugh

    Has anyone here been following the events regarding the US Supreme Court hearings? After watching both Ford and Kavanaugh, I find it difficult to imagine Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS. Kavanaugh's behavior strikes me as that of a guilty person, and also that of an alcoholic. Also, the antics of...

  16. How the FBI Silences Whistleblowers

    "The idea of “whistleblowing” has been in the news a great deal. Is the anonymous author of a recent New York Times op-ed eviscerating the president a whistleblower? Is the victim of an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh a whistleblower? I’m fortunate to...

  17. Does Trump's NAFTA Correct the Damage Clinton Did to Workers?

  20. Are we being hijacked?

    Several popular themes in modern entertainment fiction cover the idea people being controlled by outside forces. The Zombies notion has been very popular. The Invaders from Mars, or a recent mini series, "Brain Dead" covered the notion that alien elements had taken over the minds of people. ...
