Re: Trump breaks silence on Roseanne Barr scandal

What he didn’t say is just as notable. He didn’t say anything critical of Roseanne Barr’s racist and conspiratorial tweets — the comments that got her fired on Tuesday.Instead, he tweeted this on Wednesday: “Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by […]

Re: Trump is winning his effort to demonize Mueller 

But in terms of the Russia investigation, he’s embarked pretty clearly on an effort to make everything Mueller does out to be about politics rather than justice, and in doing so, he’s winning the argument. This is annoying the tee total hell out of me! He’s engaging in an active campaign of misinformation is it […]

Re: Man opens fire inside Oklahoma restaurant before ‘armed citizen’ shoots, kills him, police say 

A man “opened fire” Thursday in an Oklahoma restaurant, leaving at least four people injured, before he was fatally shot by a bystander, police said. If this happened as much as 2nd amendment types think it happens, we’d hear a lot more about it. But to quote Shannon Watts from Twitter: Bad guy gets a […]

Re: NFL owners approve new national anthem policy

“We want people to be respectful of the national anthem,” commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We want people to stand — that’s all personnel — and make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion.

Re: ‘Loner’ student shoots and kills 10 at Texas school

If two, armed school officers can’t deter or stop people from doing this, then why do we think that arming […]

Re: An Aggrieved Trump Wants Better Press, and He Blames Leaks for Not Getting It

And in the Oval Office, there is President Trump, who is prone to erupt about his communications team as ineffective and leak-ridden, complaining he has the biggest team and yet he gets “the worst press.”   I think this says a lot about Blabber Mouth Don. All he has to do to get good press […]

Re: Why Nashville Voters Rejected Public Transit

Antitransit types’ favorite refrain goes a little something like this: “Trains and buses never pay for themselves.” Like a Hank Williams tune, it never gets old because it’s sort of true. In 2015, the Hamilton Project looked at the profitability (or lack thereof) of transit agencies across the country. New York City loses about a […]

I’m a veteran and I support the NFL players right to knee during the anthem

I’m a Titans fan and proud American (though a bit less so since we have people who actually elected the idiot in chief in our country) and veteran. I respect the principles the flag and anthem represent so I support the players right to knee during the anthem. As far as protests go, kneeling is […]
