"I like K-Salaam. A lot. I like Token too. And, I like your post, Michael. What I don't like is what Huffington (AOL!) has become. Time magazine + USA Today for bourgies. That's sad because it had a good start and might have been an…"

"Stolen your title? fair use commentary, Mike. ... and as to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact ? I'll believe it when I see it, it's kinda stalled in there somewhere around the ERA. Also a real good chance that the Supremes would…"

"Hey, I recently wrote a post with a hundred comments and zero likes, and a lot of people actually like me here. You earn what you earn and you live with it. Likes are more likely on personal posts than political ones.  By the way, why would you…"

"Thanks Koshersalami, but I wasn't complaining about comments and support, just that it was intriguing with all the back and forth there were only two likes.  It was meant to be ironic.  I have repeated my HuffPost articles in attempt…"

"Well, in light of your enlightenment, Token, I will only say this. If you'd actually read my article you would have seen the reference to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, started ten years or so ago, wherein states (all of which…"

"Michael, I get the distinct impression you don't understand the nature of where you are. The difference between Our Salon and HuffPo, aside obviously from scope, is that HuffPo is an online newspaper with an active Letters to the Editor section…"

"Wow What can I say Mike? Thanks for stopping by to enlighten us. I'm Blinded by the Light. Meanwhile, the electoral college will remain as it has been and will be, because it would take the agreement of the states who benefit from it to pass an…"

"Was hoping more opinion about the electoral college would be offered - thank you. As for Huffpo, some of us read it, some of us avoid it. Most of us here appreciate the back and forth and the getting into the debate. So much more authentic,…"

Four months in, yet it’s not unfair to ask Americans, especially political leaders, Republicans and Democrats, when is enough enough?

James Comey, Legal Moralist Or Self-Serving Unconscionable Fool?

Posted on May 4, 2017 at 12:09pm 4 Comments

Yesterday in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee he admitted it was “a hard choice” and that the idea of impacting the election made him “mildly nauseous.”

Mildly nauseous? What a fortified stomach lining he must have, contrasting his concerns about doing so with remaining silent as he testified, “Concealment, in my view, would have…
