Repost of The Difference Between Republicans and Democrats In One Chart

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/4/13/1652795/-The-difference-between-Republicans-and-Democrats-in-one-chart?

For what it's worth, this IS interesting.  Add in that violence is actually lessening and fewer civilians are now dying given the fact that Assad has all but won the civil war in Syria.  Why escalate a war when our purpose should be giving…

The habit of False Equivalency rearing it's ugly head again in media as they get nervous over possible war, senate nuclear options, and other drawn out conflicts

http://www.msnbc.com/hardball/watch/matthews-how-do-you-pick-someone-to-clean-up-the-swamp-916659267822

My rant - The reason i share this particular video is not because of the insight it reveals about Trump's decision to launch missiles into Syria, but because of the insight it gives about the media. The two fellows being interviewed are considered knowledgeable and…

Read this post on Daily Kos today about the uptick in canned hunts of white buffalo. Here's my rant -

Republican Core Beliefs Deciphered!

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/chaffetz-explains-his-indifference-towards-trumps-alleged-corruption

Interesting claim by Larry Kudlow, Trump advisor - "“Why shouldn’t the president surround himself with successful people?” Kudlow wrote. “Wealthy folks have no need to steal or engage in corruption.”'

Apparently Oversight Committee Chairman Chaffetz…

Rachel Maddow Vid: Lesson One

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show

As only Rachel Maddow can say it - “…not listening to what this White House says…so far is the only sure short cut that anyone has come up with for getting at the truth..."

Both together worth every minute to watch.

Intel Committee members can play that game, too, Mr. Nunes, but with real evidence and certainty

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) has seen 'Damning Evidence' of Trump-Russia Collusion in Classified Reports

My rant - Nunes decided to cancel the open hearing next week to try and keep this stuff this fellow is talking about from coming out to the public, but out it will.  It was a very, very wide and deep net cast by Intel over several…

Silence, in this case, may really be gold...er...golden.

Sorry. Fixed video link. Works now :-)

One lie too many? Or, true? Either way, it parts the ground beneath Trump's feet a bit wider.

I'm lying here cranky and sick with a head cold and just got the energy to peruse my favorite news outlets and aggregates. What a night! It might prove a cure!
