Open Thread June 18: Child Abduction Ring Operates From White House

Filed in National by on June 18, 2018 20 Comments

I’m guessing the White House wasn’t expecting this level of outrage about its family separation policy, for the simple reason that the desperate reactions among the castle orcs — we’re not separating families/it was an easy decision for us to start separating families — make them look even more like scattering cockroaches than usual. Trump, […]

Various Degrees of Fucked Up’edness

Various Degrees of Fucked Up’edness

When your Grandpa watches too much Fox News and decides to hate Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and “liberals” with a white hot hatred – that’s fucked up, but more or less harmless. Except at Thanksgiving, when too many drinks can combine with too little to do for explosive (but localized) mayhem.

When FBI agents working out of the New York office collectively watch too much Fox News, have personal relationships with wingnut members of congress, and decide to hate Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and “liberals” with a white hot hatred – that’s really fucked up. Allowing the FBI to become partisan was James Comey’s biggest failure among many failures.

Gram Parsons was integral in incorporating the best elements of roots and country into rock music. Or, perhaps a better way of putting it, he turned rock fans on to the best elements of roots and country.  It didn’t hurt that, on his great album “Grievous Angel”, he had Emmylou Harris singing with him. He […]

Brexit and the Russia connection

Russia under Putin has been openly trying to undermine and disrupt the “North Atlantic Alliance.” It has done so by supporting unqualified, destabilizing idiots like Trump for office, and by supporting destablizing policies,such as Britain’s exit from the Eupean Union, known as Brexit. These are known facts. Not even you crazy wingnut, Fox News loving […]

June 16 Open Thread: Trump Is Scared of Biden

Filed in Delaware, National, Open Thread by on June 16, 2018 6 Comments

Trump sure is scared of Joe Biden. How do we know? Because spokesghoul Rudy Giuliani went on an unhinged rant about what a “moron” Joe Biden is. This comes from a man who had the brilliant idea of putting his anti-terrorism headquarters in the WTC complex and has left his pecker tracks all over New […]

Hadn’t heard this song in a long time, but XPN played it yesterday while I was on the way to work. This is for all you Johnny/Rosanne […]

June 15 Open Thread: Hey, Media, There’s a Humanitarian Crisis on U.S. Border

Filed in National by on June 15, 2018 18 Comments

Despite Trump’s best efforts to create a distraction — Your Leader averted the nuclear disaster that he ginned up in the first place! — people, meaning the media, are starting to pay attention to the cruel practice of taking children at border stations from their families, even if those families are seeking asylum rather than […]

Manafort’s lawyers argued for stricter no-contact rules, but after an hour-long hearing U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson took a 30 minute recess before announcing her decision that nothing […]

1. The Mulrooney Retirement. On virtually every issue, Rep. Mike Mulrooney has been a traditional Democrat, and not a Chamber lackey. He supports workers, families, equal rights for all, and has voted as such. He’s a salt-of-the-earth guy who took his job seriously while not taking himself too seriously. His legislative priorities generally centered around […]

June 14 Open Thread: Lawful But Awful

Filed in National by on June 14, 2018 26 Comments

The headline comes from this story about the ways gun manufacturers already are working on products designed to circumvent bans on bump stocks and other after-market products that turn legal firearms into questionably legal ones. This is why gun nuts want to get very specific about what’s banned — it gives them a guidebook on […]
