Best Description of the Trump Presidency Yet; A "Bust Out Joint"

I got an email from the Dailykos recently with this story.  The person who wrote it is from Chicago and claims to be very familiar with mob terminology.

New York lawyer’s description (on MSNBC) of the Trump presidency: "The Trump Presidency is a bust out joint."

For those not familiar with mob terminology, it works like this.  The mob – through coercion or loan shark debt – takes over a business.  They then buy, using the business’s good credit, as much as possible.  When the…

One Question for a Saturday Morning;

Given the fact that Trump has told blatant untruths at the rate of 6.44 per day (as of May 1, 2018) since entering office, and given the fact that the intent is to destroy America’s trust in the media (a fundamental pillar of democracy) should Trump’s untruths not be called lies?

Deep Thoughts For You on Father's Day

Jill Ker Conway 1932-2018

Since moving to the Bay Area I’ve been listening a lot to our local public radio station KQED. I turned on my car radio the other day and there was an unmistakable voice that I thought I’d never hear again–that of my friend Jill Ker Conway. She died a few weeks ago, on June 1st. I was hearing an interview with Terri Gross from 1994, but Jill didn’t sound any different than the last time we spoke.
