    Perhaps I enjoy firing shots across other people’s bows. I don’t know but I love to repost these pictures from here. Often they say so much with the least amount of words yet get the message across loud and clear.

    I agree, Rick. This site has the best to offer. I love this blog —- and the people who contribute. I was very lucky to find it.

    It does not seem to be escapable, that the worst that it is going for Trump the more that Obama us thrown up and the most racism that get used. Many will say that it was not race. It was policies and the liberal stances. The oxymoron even appeared today on Facebook.It is never said by one trumpster that Obama is a Muslim then another brings up Rev. Wright? Having this islamic hell bent on destroying the united states attending a Black Racist Christian Church? It seem that either it is an inside joke among them. Otr they actually are just that stupid? For me it is a terrifying time, Not since Bush have I seen this close to a meaningless war for Profit.

    • I’ve also seen – and heard – these same Republicans that bragged it was their #1 job to make Obama fail for 8 years are NOW saying they may not have liked Obama but they always gave him respect.

      WTH are these people smoking????

      So – repeating the known Birtherism Lie is a sign of showing respect to your president?

      These Trumpublican Kompassionate Kristian Konservatives are so damn scary – it’s not even laughable any more.

    It is always the question, are their memories that bad or are they counting on that the American people’s is? There is the ole saying about how can you tell a politician is lying? His lips are moving! Now granted, my memory is not what it use to be. But I do try to remember what I have said from day to day. Then what they are called on it and even if there is a recording and video tape. They still tend to deny it?

    This is worth reading…….all I can say is – Trump sure can attract all the ‘right’ people – can’t he?

    Perhaps this black man was one of those fine people marching shoulder-to-shoulder with the KKK and Nazis in Charlottesville?

    Take special note of this guy’s violent background – and how his religion is intertwined in all his conspiracies.

    • What are the chances of this same black man being in the same spot behind Trump at his rallies?

      Perhaps this black man is a plant by the Trumpublicans??

    When smarter men than me question Trump’s fitness to be the president – then I know I am not the crazy one – or the only one – that is not a Trumpublican

    • What about Clapper’s thought about if TRump is trying to find a way out? Is it possible Trump is throwing out all his craziness in the hopes people will throw him out of office so he can claim he is being persecuted – and then Trump can join Bannon at Breitbart T.V. network to make even more millions off his kind of people?

      My assessment of Trump’s speech last night – it is the real Trump that came through – loud and clear.

      Trump is VERY GOOD at campaigning – but LOUSY at governing.

      And let’s not forget – Trump had the luxury of cherry picking his crowd last night. These people were already in his choir – there is no singing to that choir – because these folks have already bought whatever the Donald has sold them. Hook, line and sinker.

    This is disturbing on many levels – if this young woman was old enough to get a job – then why did the boss insist on going to her grandmother and have the grandmother break the bad news to her she had lost her job?

    The entire thing is just so bizarre.

    BTW – it does not say if this employee was written up or had any verbal warnings in her file about her cellphone use in the office and any excessive absences.

    Just thought I would point that out…

    I know from first-hand experience what it feels like to be forced to work with a Bible Thumper as a supervisor. After I confronted the surgeon’s office manager that she could not tell the entire staff at our weekly meetings – ‘this is a Christian office. If you don’t like that, there is the door (said as she pointed towards door).

    After I confronted Betty Bible Thumper – this woman routinely asked me – in front of everyone – ‘why do you hate Jesus?’.

    My life at the office was pure HELL from that point on – until I chose to leave.

    Just because a person thumps a Bible, that does not make them God.

  8. Best tweet regarding The Angry Childish Bully after he spoke in Phoenix last night:

    Point: He’s not always like this.

    Counterpoint: Jeffery Dahmer didn’t eat everyone he met.

    Fnord I like that one.

  10. I do hope all those Trumpublicans in Texas do not expect the federal government to pay them for any damage this Hurricane Harvey might bring their way today or tomorrow.

    After all – that EVIL government is so EVIL that their money would also be EVIL – wouldn’t it?

    • BTW – why should my tax dollars be given to those who made the bad choice to live in Texas – on the coastline – of all places??

      Hey – Texans don’t want to pay for my choices – why should I pay for theirs?

  11. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/far-from-dixie-outcry-grows-over-a-wider-array-of-monuments/ar-AAqGaxw?li=BBnbcA1

    Are all monuments wrong in this current climate we are living in?

    Trump praises the Confederate monuments but the same Trump is known for his hatred of losers.

    The Confederates LOST the Civil War – which means they are LOSERS.

    Based on that assessment (alone) – Trump should stop demonizing the losers he is always talking about – and embrace al losers – shouldn’t he?

    That is the stupid part – IMHO.

    We all know the reason Trump has stoked this Confederate Monument fight – it’s to keep his Kompassionate Kristian Konservative White Trumpublican base all riled up.

    Hell – it doesn’t take much to rile these folks up – just give them anything and they are ready to fight. On that level – these folks are no different than ISIS – IMHO
