Welcome Back, My Friends, to the Show That Never Ends
Author: Raine    Date: 06/13/2019 12:52:51

What you are seeing is real. It's also hard to believe when viewing it from a lens of reality, and that is the very painful part to accept. This administration is the rotted head and the party it represents the decayed corpse. Let's review just the past couple of days.

Plowing the Field
Author: BobR    Date: 06/12/2019 13:21:20

It's starting to get real, folks. The first Democratic primary is about 6 months away. The first debate is just 2 weeks away. With 23 democrats running to be the Democratic candidate, it's going to be a crowded stage. Not unlike the Republican field in 2016, the party has had to set some guidelines as to who can participate. In short, if a candidate is 1% or better in the polls, or has "received donations from at least (1) 65,000 unique donors; and (2) a minimum of 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 U.S. states", then they may participate in the debate.

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

I was musing last night that on the next President's watch, we'll be "celebrating" the 20th anniversary of the events of 9-11. We'll also be passing our 20th anniversary at war.

Longtime readers of this column will remember our old ticker-tape, and to revisit, we've been at war in Afghanistan since October 7, 2001. That's a whopping 6,456 days...or 17 years, 8 months, and 4 days.

Cheap shots.

It's Monday again and I don't have much to talk about this morning. This exclusive from WaPo is a bit astounding.

Grand Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 06/07/2019 13:13:36

Just thought I'd post some pictures of the beauty of the US. Sometimes I forget, being in the myopic world of suburbia just how majestic this country is.

Defeat the fascist
Author: Raine    Date: 06/06/2019 13:05:36

I'm angry that the person representing the United States of America at the 75th anniversary of D-Day to defeat fascism is a fascist white supremacist.

Doing the People's Work
Author: BobR    Date: 06/05/2019 12:39:41

With the release of the Meuller report, and the drumbeat for "impeach", there are some pearl-clutchers who think the Democrats in the House should instead focus on getting legislation passed (as if they can only do one or the other). That makes the very naive and/or uninformed assumption that they haven't.

Reaching the Breaking Point?
Author: TriSec    Date: 06/04/2019 09:46:41

Good Morning.

Only one story to ponder today. Our differently-winged friends have always talked a good game regarding the military. They love our troops!

Of course, actions speak louder than words, and we know the GOP's track record in that regard.

But throughout all of it, we've always seen the politicians using the military as 'props'. Perhaps the most egregious example of late was President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech - as you'll note, that came on May 1, 2003. Sixteen years ago. I wonder what mission was completed?

God, save the Queen?

I see the Occupant of the White House is in England for a "State Visit" and has already insulted the Mayor of London., calling him a 'stone cold loser'
