Hillary is one tough cookie. Can you imagine all the traveling she’s done and speeches she’s given — with pneumonia?
I spoke for four minutes at the same event she keynoted Friday night — having done nothing much the two or three days before — and was pretty well shot for the rest of the weekend.
By contrast, she participated […]
We all know Trump has a secret plan to wipe out ISIS shortly after he takes office. He loves his country, but not enough to have shared the plan when first conceived, to wipe them out a year earlier. Patriotism has its limits.
And we assumed he wouldn’t share the plan with Hillary if SHE wins […]
The last Clinton to hold office gave us eight years of peace and prosperity. Then a poorly prepared businessman who wanted to cut taxes for the rich led us into a disastrous war and wrecked the national balance sheet.
Most of the — valid! — frustrations of the Trump people and the Bernie people are the result not […]
Vladimir Putin, whom Donald Trump admires, is a bit of a thug — no?
Trump’s mentor Roy Cohn, once thuggish Joe McCarthy’s chief counsel, was himself a bit of a thug, as well.
Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager, was called a thug by an editor of right-wing Breitbart.
(Per the National Review: “‘Corey […]
For all the problems and challenges — our military’s a disaster, crime’s never been worse, unemployment’s 40%, illegal alien rapists and terrorists make us all afraid to leave our homes in the morning (plus real problems and challenges, like climate change and cybersecurity, decaying infrastructure, income inequality . . . and the Zika virus that the Republican Congress adjourned without addressing) — for all that, the […]
One of the many things nearly eight years of a Democratic Administration has given us — besides an end to the housing depression, 77 consecutive months of private sector job growth, a tripled stock market and a zeroing out of the weekly U.S. military body count — is the U.S. Digital Service, of which I ‘ve written […]
Jim Burt: “Pretty good summary from Rick Valelly, Professor of Political Science at Swarthmore:
. . . No previous presidential candidate in American political history has been a dangerous demagogue, clearly unfit and unprepared for the office.
No one before in American presidential electoral history has been so narcissistically disdainful of the basic ethical requirements […]
Look around! Look around! What a time to be alive right now!
Everything from flying cars to tremendous increases in efficiency and sustainability. Making a pound of “beef” without 1,800 gallons of water.
Yes, it’s a little scary, too. (How soon will we be pleading with HAL to […]
You gotta have to kinda love this:
Donald Trump’s new presidential campaign chief is registered to vote in a key swing state at an empty house where he does not live, in an apparent breach of election laws. . . . Bannon is executive chairman of the rightwing website Breitbart News, which has for years […]
Not Republicans, not Democrats, not Reagan Republicans — not ONE of the living members of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.
But what do they know? Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed King of Bankruptcy, will win so much we’ll get tired of winning. He will win so much that more than 95% of black Americans, […]
Quote of the Day
The press [should be] a watchdog. Not an attack dog. Not a lapdog. A watchdog. Now, a watchdog can't be right all the time. He doesn't bark only when he sees or smells something that's dangerous. A good watchdog barks at things that are suspicious.~Dan Rather
