Trump Targets Black Athletes With Minds Of Their Own.  Demands NFL owners fire players who kneel during National Anthem or face boycott. Does same for NBA stars. The man is certifiable and a certifiable racist. BTW, you know what sport is really dying? That bastion of white southern fans, NASCAR.  Oh, and Trump’s favorite. golf. […]

The Business Roundtable Is A Clusterbleep Even Before It Gets Started.  Let’s start with this quote: The board, for instance, will not be required to hold public meetings or publish minutes of its discussions. Financial disclosure documents that would reveal potential conflicts of interest also will not be released to the public. “I’m a big proponent of […]

Manafort Offered Insider Election Info To Russian Oligarch. Read that headline again. Trump’s campaign manager offered private election briefings to a Russian oligarch. Two weeks before the convention. For a price, of course. Speaking of which… Report: 32 Million To Lose Health Care Under Graham-Cassidy.  BTW, I’ll say it again. Lindsay Graham is perhaps the […]

White House Clusterbleep Over Documents.  How many documents are too many/not enough? NYTimes overhears lawyer blabbing at a DC steakhouse.  If you’re taking bets, remember that the original Ty Cobb was the dirtiest player in the game.

Officials: Amazon Is Delaware’s Powerball Lottery Ticket.

Bob Marshall Draws First Challenger.  Jordan Hines. Pretty impressive resume, although membership in the Monday Club is hardly a qualification.  Questions: What does he stand for? Where is he on minimum wage, death penalty (where Marshall, to put it charitably, has been wobbly), willingness to raise taxes to pay for vital programs, etc.? What is […]

Hillary Clinton’s Attacks On Bernie Sanders Are Um, Untrue

Let’s first figure out what she’s complaining about. As near as I can tell, and I’ve read a lot about her book, she claims that Trump would never have called her Crooked Hillary had Bernie not hammered her for accepting obscene fees to speak before her corporate overlords. She makes that claim w/o any supporting […]

I support prevailing wage and recognize the Rethugs’ obsession against it as typical R disdain for allowing anyone but billionaires to make a decent living.
