The original is excellent. But it is possible to like more than one kind of chocolate. = )
Bernie Sanders’ Primer (from 2016 so there are things to add):
Some things to remember when someone says, “But what has he accomplished?”
A couple that I did not know:
Former professor of political science at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and at Hamilton College.
1992: Congress passes San…
I think most (critical thinking) people recognize that the anti-abortion movement has nothing to do with religion. (In the Bible, human life did not start until the first person took their first breath.)
This article caught my eye as a possible reason for the movement as a whole. Births have been dropping in the US for at least 30 years, and that…[Read more]
I usually turn the chat off on live events as I find them distracting. I prefer to listen rather than have the message diluted with others’ thoughts.
During the Denmark, SC, video though, I left it on. I had noted that there were two down votes for the video that were there early on (three by the time it finished).
Throughout, there was one very…[Read more]
I usually do not care much for “feel good” stories that come from MSM as they are usually covering up some societal ill, but this story is great. (In the video, you can clearly hear the boy’s exclamation and the wonder in his voice.)
BOSTON — They are some of the b…
Good for a chuckle . . . until the last paragraph which calls for reflection.
Apparently someone posted some bogus Trump golf scores. In this very short article, the writer does manage to squeeze in the implication that Trump cheats at golf, just apparently not by the amount shown…[Read more]
Your tax dollars at work:
A Brazilian U.S. subsidiary is being paid over $60 million in aid aimed at helping American farmers weather President Donald Trump’s trade war, according to media reports.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is paying $40.1 million to b…
Establishment Dems have no survival instincts.
I refuse to subscribe to The Nation in part to articles like this (not going to give them a click to read it), but I have a question. Is this piece clearly marked as Opinion or is it pretending to be a news article?
How we view the world is circumscribed by many things. Language and culture are two of the main limiters, so it is often interesting how art is reflected by those who look at the world from a different viewpoint. These limiters can be overcome if one so chooses, but even being introduced to them can make a change. The artists (a team of two men…[Read more]
It is faux patriotism: God and country and protecting those back home.
Real patriots…the ones who actually want to make things better for the people… are demeaned, smeared, persecuted and/or thrown in prison…or murdered.
TOP is The Other Place.
Are migrants gong to be moved to areas with the highest numbers of racists, white supremacists and white nationalists? With the recent announcement of moving migrants to Florida, I am thinking this could be the case.
Doing it out of the goodness of his heart> LOL, not likely. I can see him on QVC hawking surveillance devices, though.
Stupid is as stupid does.
President Donald Trump asked Congress to pay the Afghanistan Taliban for the costs associated with attending peace conferences, according to a new report.
Miscellaneous supplies? Will the US be holding a gun show for them?
The money would be used to cover…
From what I have seen and read, it is mostly only the elites who back regime change in Venezuela. Must be nice to get paid to overthrow your own government and be able to sleep at night.
Playing down Biden’s Social Security stands. I think all of these choices that he supports have been debunked.
Their bottom line:
Now, understand that highlighting Biden’s record on Social Security reform isn’t meant to shame him or put him on a pedestal. Rather, it highlights Biden as…
Undermining the White House’s narrative on Venezuela while being paid to support WH actions shows that elitism unlinked from critical thinking exacerbates cognitive dissonance. (All highlighting is mine.)
Grayzone — A major right-wing opposition leader in Venezuela has ackno…
Interesting campaign strategy:
MIAMI – The Trump administration is preparing to release hundreds of asylum-seeking migrants caught along the southern border into Florida’s Broward and Palm Beach counties, with no apparent plan to house, feed or care for them, according to l…
Yes, I know it is long (I only seem to do long), but it is packed full of facts and ideas that most people are not acquainted with. Zinn touches on the effectiveness of social movements as well as highlighting the realities of war.
“All wars are wars against children.” — Zinn
Welcome, David! Love your web page. There are a lot of really good cartoons and quotes that I haven’t seen elsewhere.
Note: FiveThrityEight and ThinkProgress (in the Links) have fallen out of favor with progressives.
