So you would rather deport violent criminals than sent them to prison?
How can you be sure they won't just come back?

MS-13... why stop there? Give us some WW2 carnage, Mussolini, maybe some Pol Pot... Trump doesn’t care if MS-13 or visa overstayers from Canada - just so that he can stir his base of deplorables, and we see here that gorgeous fell in line.

So not only is he trying to officially and illegally hurt a business (Bezos) via pressuring the USPS*, he also announced drastic measures regarding women's health and rights.

Makes one wonder what shoe is about to drop for the Golden Calf to appease his adoring Televangelical masses...



* But will his base mind if their shipping rates are being doubled?

Hmm, and now mandated bank reports of Suspicious Account transactions seem to be disappearing from the Justice Department records, especially those involving Mr. Cohen. Now WHO do you suppose could be behind that?

You can tell by their public "nothing wrong with whatever we did" confessions that they know the gig is up.

Humor/Irony impairment? You decide.

Post by Upton_O_Goode » Sun May 20, 2018 2:52 pm

I agree with most of the points of view expressed in DailyKos briefings, but this link came into my e-mail box this morning, and I'm at least ambiguous about it, if not actually opposed to the point of view taken by DK:

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/5 ... =emaildkre

I looked at it and said, “WTF!!” This looks like the kind of comment I might make myself, with no disrespect implied or intended against Hispanics. Indeed, it’s the kind of ironic counter-stereotype that plays a big role in the monologues of Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Myers. I have the feeling that, if either of them had related this story, the audience would have laughed. And if any of the “Deplorables” objected, that same audience would have said this story is an uplifting commentary on the social and economic progress made by Hispanics, and anybody who objects to it is a racist who wants to keep Hispanics confined to menial jobs.

I want to tell these up-tight types to “loosen up” a bit and try to keep a sense of humor and irony. The normal phrase used is “lighten up,” but of course the word “light” can refer to either color or weight, and if you tell someone to “lighten up,” you are insulting people of color and fat people (and if Dick Gregory were alive, he’d crucify you for both of those insults). So, I use “loosen up” instead, figuring that “loose” is the opposite of “tight” and there isn’t yet any lobby defending the rights of the inebriated.

It does appear that the person who posted the tweet has posted some OTHER ambiguous tweets, so maybe he did intend a racist insult. But you can’t tell that from just this one tweet alone. You need the context.

I've never seen anything go viral quite so fast. I first heard about this on Thursday, during a trip to tech support for my new computer. By Saturday, it was being featured on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me." For what it's worth, I heard "Yammy," and I think that's because I wear hearing aids that overcompensate for my high-frequency hearing loss. (At least, music has sounded annoyingly tinny ever since I got the damned things three years ago. But my wife was very tired of having to repeat herself, and I couldn't understand my grandson over the telephone until his voice changed.)

What comment would you make?

What came to my mind was: "Anglos still in control of well paid construction work."

...........also could crack wise about "Authentic Mexican Restaurant" but I supposed this means family owned and not a chain?

Its all too easy to see the world through a racial/racist lens. Some truth from time to time, mostly BS to feather one groups advantage over the other.

Farewell to "a great Vermonter"

Post by Upton_O_Goode » Sun May 20, 2018 3:15 pm

The late Governor Hoff was an early hero of mine. Here's a two-minute summary of his sendoff a week ago Saturday. If you are sharp-eyed, you can see my wife sitting among the clergy at the far right next to the altar. And they managed to get both of our senators and former governor Madeleine Kunin into the two minutes. Not bad.


What I most enjoyed was Bernie Sanders, saying that Hoff was "a great Vermonter." It reminded me of the following (true!) story: A colleague of mine, from Brooklyn, was vacationing in Oregon and got to talking with another tourist at some point. After a few minutes, the other tourist said, "You're from Vermont, aren't you?" My colleague was surprised, and asked how he knew. His reply was classic: "You have the same accent as Bernie Sanders."

Not every god-damned detail has to made explicit under hundred-fold magnification. We have other things to do with our time, and casual comments can be left casual.

Sheesh!!!

Stone's line must be on fire today with inquiries about what he said and what he "knows". He's totally disgusted with the massive and unfair leaking coming out of the Mueller investigation. :laff:


In other mews, more reports about meetings and oppo research with foreigners by the usual suspects...

While on twitter (and most likely FAUX Noise etc.) he's raging about the "illegal infiltration" of his campaign and demanding the investigation and disclosure thereof, the WH has to some extend been backing the rules and norms of secrecy and security of DoJ and FBI/IC. His troops, of course, won't see that, cos - as he knows - they wouldn't dream of ever looking at the whole of it. And prefer to pretend he's being "hindered" and "treated unfairly". :?

Sheesh!!!
1. Would growing up include accepting the fact that you are posting on a public forum?
2. Not the Gadfly. EXACTLY like yourself, and most others here, I post when I "feel" a response might add to any discussion of the identified subject.
3. I commented because it is NOT specific enough. Notice: I did my share of the work by stating what I might have commented. You see......we both had the benefit of the clip to consider and improve upon. I HONESTLY wondered what improvement, longer considered comment you might make. Your umbrage makes me reconsider....you may have no deeper analysis than to second what others have already said.
4. Ha, ha.....yeah....you are sooooooo important. Important people don't have to think. You are all men of action.

Ooooooh: Heres a flash: the next segment will be about the clash between the White House and the DOJ. This hasn't even happened yet. Tune to your local Morning Joe to catch the latest Trump update.

Sorry....can't help myself. It is wrenchingly noticeable how "anti-Trump" the Morning Joe program has become. Anti in just reporting the facts with the gravitas they deserve. Not "neutral" as if the facts, the actions of Trump and his minions, does not have repercussions, as proclaimed by the main stream to be the proper role of the Press. And not Pro-Trump as if his hamfisted stumbling contains the machinations of someone playing 3 dimensional chess a la Faux Spews.

No, just good relevant reporting which I hope will get the democratic base out to vote. And meanwhile....Trumps approval rating moving into the solid low 40's. The appeal of a Tryrant. The Blue Wave of last month being touted down to just a small swell. Seems too many accept the propaganda that the "economy is strong" and "unemployment is low." Neither is true, or atleast its definitional and that makes the truth out of whomever is yelling the loudest and most often.

As Gene Robinson said this morning, we are not on the cusp of a constitutional crisis, WE ARE IN ONE RIGHT NOW. Heh, heh.....got to find a conservative forum to get kicked off of. You guys already agree in substance.

Only occasionally do I unignore bobbo, so most of what he's attempting to bait me with just gets wasted. But thanks for joining the cause. The quote you gave is interesting, since it accuses me of not giving a comment, analysis, or thought. And here I thought my ENTIRE post WAS a comment, with some analysis, and certainly with some thought. I wouldn't have seen it otherwise.

And now it seems the inflation has begun. According to my news feed this morning, there's an acute shortage of teamsters, and companies are paying up to $80,000 a year to get them. This is raising prices for everyone, especially Amazon Prime (Trump should be happy!). With that and the increasing fuel prices, we're going to have some pretty serious inflation pretty quickly, I think.

Afterthought: I'm very glad to see that teamsters are getting this kind of money. This is a job that people who didn't like academic work can learn to do. It's not a trivial job by any means, and I'm always filled with admiration for the skill of the drivers, especially since, after 11 years and 53,000 miles on my latest car, I still can't back it up in a straight line. True, the Teamsters Union has a rather thuggish reputation, but then all unions do. In fact, any populist organization is almost bound to resort to strong-arm tactics to keep its members in line. The extreme case of it was the CPSU and the Cuban Communist Party. It's very difficult to get a populist program through over determined opposition, and the Communists chose the shortest way. Unfortunately, they themselves were promoting a flawed theory of economics that produced poverty and they quickly became corrupt, as they passed the poverty on to The People. As cartoonist Walt Kelly once wrote, "The shortage will be divided among the peasants."

Brace for more brazen and damaging actions.

Sadly...the trucking industry currently employing about 3.5 Million people is No 1 on the automation (AI driverless trucks) hit parade. So...it might be a job for the next 3-5 years, but nothing for the future. Its the slow recognition of this that has caused the issue of Universal Income to be in the news more and more. Its coming.

I bet there are dozens of hackers who could take over Trump's Twitter account, but have correctly decided that they could write more devastating stuff than Trump, and even if they tired, no one would notice the difference.
