    Listening to Armstrong and Getty this morning, re the one year anniversery

    And they were saying that night last year was one of the top 5 nights of their lives. Thinking about it, it was a pretty good night for me as well. Not because I had any horse in the race, dog in the show, as it were, but rather because those in the know, so much smarter than anybody else...

    OMG!!! Gen. Kelly's HEAD HANGS IN SHAME listening to Trump!

    Apparently a couple of cameras saw Kelly's face and panned to it. This is one. I saw one up close and clearer earlier--video with his restrained but obvious expressions. I'll bet his MARINES knew when he was PISSED. Trump doesn't. Frustration my ass, the CNN felt compelled to soften it...

    Humm....Remember in JUL, Trump TOLD Russia to 'KEEP LISTENING' to Hillary?

    You know I forgot about this little quote. 'Find those 30,000 missing emails and let us know what's in them?' Any bells? What the hell DID he know then? I thought it was flip remark based on some nebulous theory out there. I have a feeling he might have known a whole lot more ALL ALONG. "Why...

    So all day, I've been listening to young people who are in despair about their rights

    Hell, all the social issues, well, I have cogitated on this, did an assessment and here's my prediction: Let's set the stage shall we? We have a Republican congress and a Republican president, and with the adroit mastery of Schumer, there will be a bit of a stalwart in the Senate against...

    Are You Even Listening?: HEAR the "other side" for the first time!

    I want to try a social experiment. Below, please comment (in your own words) with the one thing you wish your "political opponents" would understand about your worldview. Here's the tricky part; you need to read what other people post about their worldview AND THEN read it again before you...

    These “thoughts and prayers” for gun violence victims are paid for by the NRA

    Where the fuck is proof that GOD is 'watching'?? The only outrage is that it is COPS this time against an individual with an ARSENAL. Who the fuck are we kidding?? It appears that every time one of these mass shootings happen, the NRA just keeps beefing up its POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS. Look...

    Frank Luntz: NRA not listening to public

    The NRA isn't listening ... and neither are those who insist they should have the right to own semi-automatic weapons, because they want to, and the rest of the country should just arm up to deal with the consequences of their wants. Bullshit. The rest of us are sick of their temper tantrums...

    Here's an interesting comment on the question of science in public policy. This writer suggests that while its true that Americans don't know enough about science, the resistance that certain factions show toward scientific consensus on political issues isn't grounded in ignorance. Rather...

    Listening to a Liar - (psst, he means obama)

    The author is probably a racist, LOL.... The most important thing about what anyone says are not the words themselves but the credibility of the person who says them. The words of convicted swindler Bernie Madoff were apparently quite convincing to many people who were regarded as...
