Laws reflect and uphold our freedom to live and express our agreed upon values as a plurality of people. The latest wave of anti-immigration proponents are, once again, about to be reminded of that.…Continue
Daily Kos repost with link to letter to the FCC
Decent minded people were predictably and deliberately distracted by Trump's vulgarity towards Mika Brzezinski in a display created and timed with the Trump administration being informed by the WSJ about their story on Flynn's collusion with…Continue
We all know it, but dang! It's hard not to react and come to one another's defense. Many manipulators like Trump know this of course. Trump plays to one audience, and one audience only - his own. They love this stuff. Republicans will use it for cover. His true supporters will have…Continue
I think this conflict between the MSM and Trump is more substance than show. There is a real struggle by an otherwise unexercised media against an autocrat to draw a line in the sand. It's having the effect of eroding Trump's outlier base, leaving him a smaller core that delights in his trash-talking as a way to take their country back from the "liberal sissies."

Oh...lookey there! More forgotten Russians...Or at least a lobbyist or two.
The trouble with telling boldface lies during sworn public testimony is that other people are inclined to take them seriously and wanna correct the record to…Continue
My rant: Why are the estimated 3,000,000 largely African American and Latino American suppressed voters NOT completely considered as possible evidence of Russian tampering with the election, and therefore unworthy of INTEL scrutiny, now that…Continue
