Deliberately Obtuse is not a Governing Principle

On Tuesday, pResident tRump decided to hold a meeting with Republican and Democratic congressional leaders to discuss immigration reform. To assuage his ego, and ostensibly show the world how good he is at "negotiating", he had the whole thing broadcast live. It did not go well for the tRumpster.

It's Only Wednesday!

Yesterday we learned that Senator Diane Feinstein had had enough of the GOP's games with regard to the investigation of Russia interfering with our election.

Good Morning.

9 days into 2018...and things are strangely quiet on the veteran's front.

We will continue to look in the rear-view mirror, but today only back as far as January 1. We've already had our first combat death of the year in Afghanistan, but because it was on New Year's Day, it was almost completely unnoticed. We're still at war, despite what you may have heard.

Happy Monday. We live in a world were Sean Spicer says that Oprah "doesn't have the experience to be President."

The Smartest Man in the WORLD
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 01/07/2018 16:32:45

Is Donald J. Trump the smartest man ever? Let's take a look.Obviously the people who many claim are the most brilliant, like Darwin, Einstein, Tesla, Newton and Aristotle are all dead and the only living smart person is Stephen Hawking and no one can understand his gibberish. The others never had a twitter account.

77 Years
Author: clintster    Date: 01/06/2018 20:31:23

Just a reminder that 77 years ago today, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stood before Congress and delivered one of the greatest speeches of all time:

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

The first is freedom of speech and expression–everywhere in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way–everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want–which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world.

The fourth is freedom from fear–which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor–anywhere in the world.

The entire message is fantastic, and looking back at it just serves to remind us all what decency and sanity sound like from our national leadership. Or should.

Running Out of Time
Author: BobR    Date: 01/04/2018 14:26:59

It's pretty much all anyone is talking about: the new book by Michael Wolff on the tRump pResidency. Wolff had unfettered access to much of the White House staff, and interviewed numerous people. It's the quotes from former tRump advisor Steve Bannon that have ignited a firestorm of discussion and opinions.

There's much more to it than Bannon, however. The more shocking "revelations" include:

Good Morning.

We'll start the new year with a look back at 2017. This used to be our bread and butter, hard to believe that we rarely look at the statistics now. As you know, we have long used our friends at Antiwar.com as a source, but it now appears they have moved on to other things.
