Praying for the thousands of innocent victims killed in the Bowling Green Massacre.

I think Alec MacGillis said it best:
“One still shudders to think how bad the Bowling Green massacre would’ve been if not for the heroic intervention of Fred Douglass.”

Money quote from the the Facebook story: “Since the end of the 2016 election, and especially since it resulted in the victory of Donald J. Trump as president, Facebook has become utterly intolerable.” Utterly, I say.

I noticed the link is to The Federalist which reminded me that I had never deleted the bookmark to their site. I’ll get right to that.

Unemployment figures will be released today. I’m guessing BLS will report unemployment on the order of 5%. Start crowing Noway. Cap’n Tinyhands has been in office only two weeks, and the alternative fact is that employment is down 88%. Is he Making America Great Again or what?

Nowhere near 5 percent. Nowhere. But Trump’s on the job , so it will be better soonest!

Your insanely quick rush to judgment and utter delight at the thought the attacks were committed by a Muslim,

Surprisingly your boy Trump hasn’t said a thing about it, but was quick to crow about the Louvre incident this morning. I guess attacks against Muslims aren’t news but attacks by Muslims are? Oh, that’s right, Steve Bannon is in charge.

Like I said before: We’ll see…Hey, maybe like with Major Hassan, they can call it “work place violence?”

Let me help you out…

Say “The early reports out of Canada were wrong.” Technically, you are not admitting you might of possible been wrong. It was Canada that was giving everyone alternate facts… those liars. (written in sarcastic font)

Go back and read my reply at the time. I said something to you about copycat shootings and the like and i could be rpoven wrong. So, I already addressed the possibility. But, all the facts aren’t in, so we’ll see.

Is it legal for POTUS to use his Twitter account directing people who want to read an official Presidential statement to his personal Facebook page adorned by a large “SHOP NOW” button that spans the page? Conservatives need have no ethical worries since sales proceeds from the shopping all go directly to Donald J. Trump for President. You know, the campaign that he funded himself. I signed the White House petition requesting Trump release his tax returns. Cap’n Tinyhands harvested my e-mail address from the petition to spam me a few days later with an e-mail from “The White House”.… Read more »

He ain’t releasing squat. Under no legal obligation to do so. Just cause others did, doesn’t mean he has to. But I’m glad to know all y’all signed that little online petition.

I’m sure the GOP is delighted you’re on board with their lowering the bar.

I honestly didn’t think it would feel so good to watch liberals whine and cry everyday. But after eight years of Obama it feels oh so good.

As I said, do yourself proud.

With respect, E…I could watch these losers whine everyday and not break a sweat! I especially love the fact that they can do absolutely nothing about it in the senate. And, 20 bucks says Trump’s SC nominee gets confirmed. I hope it goes nuclear, too!! And Ginsberg better not be ordering any three minute eggs. She looks horrible. In eight years Trump gets minimum two more pics. Bye, bye Roe v Wade!

Your sanctity of life argument gets a bit watered down when your all but wishing a Supreme Court justice dies in order to change a law.

But then again, you’ve never contradicted yourself before.

Ahhh, “sanctity of life.” Are you pro-abortion?

He will be confirmed. Kennedy is going to be next to retire. Most likely this spring or spring 2019. For Roe to be overturned, the court has to be willing to rule the rights of a zygote/fetus out weight the rights of a living woman. They would basically have to admit that every American (living to zygote) is equal under the eyes of law except for pregnant women. Government can force a woman and her body to do something against her free will. That then sets a precedent in US law that allows any human body (male or female) to… Read more »

Barbaric position. My family is strongly divided on this subject but 100% of them would not stand for ending a heartbeat well into a healthy pregnancy.
You can have the last word.

Ellynn

I personally would not end any pregnancy I had, and I have tried to encouraged other to not end pregnancies. One of those success resulted in my goddaughter, and she is going to go to law school if I have any say in the matter. (She needs to graduate from pre-k this spring first)

Realistically, the bottom line of Roe (in a court of law) will be who’s rights matter more. And what is the consequence surrounding each choice.

Don’t get too smug, we’re having a pretty good time watching this jackleg operation in action ourselves. Us snowflakes are worried about all the storm clouds on the horizon though.

Yeah, E…. but what about all the cowards clad in black with heads/faces covered in black hoods? They are a modern day mob no different than the old monotone KKK model (clad in white with white head/face coverings), only way more destructive to huge cities, universities, private vehicles, policemen, etc. Why is nobody recognizing the comparison and raising hell to stop the anonymity that breeds ever-worsening acts? Make them show their faces like was done to shut down Klan activity.

Andrew C. Pope

The anti-fascist protesters are “way more destructive to huge cities, universities, private vehicles, policemen, etc.” but at least they aren’t lynching people.. I’ll take a billion busted Starbucks windows over one lynching any day. Oh, by the by, the Klan destroyed and burned down people’s homes and businesses, so you’re probably wrong on the “way more destructive” point.

Lastly, the anti-mask statute applies to these protesters as well. If they get arrested, they get charged with a violation just like Klan members do.

And from the Department of A Snowball’s Chance, we have an actual civil rights bill filed at the Capitol.

Mike Pence may be a hard-line conservative, but at least he behaves like a grown man.

You know, with most of our attention being focused on the Falcons and the Super Bowl this weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to find this story on – The Clinton Foundation.
Once Sessions votes for Betsy, he is sworn in as AG. What preparations should Hillary make in anticipation of that?

He’s going to be too busy telling Stephen Miller what to tell the white house to do. And gutting what’s left of the voter right act. And overturning the police department agreements. And all the lawsuits the ACLU is saying they are going to file. And the weakening the 10th, 14th, and 25th amendment to bother with that. He was going to go after the 3rd but that might be a little too fascist for the GOP to handle. The 19th though is still on his list of options I hear. We hear is has a dislike for crocheted hats.… Read more »

Well, thinking about it, I proposed an unintentional trick question. He’s recused himself in this one!!! I fergot! So, while Sessions is working on all the things you listed, what will Hillary be thinking knowing that a career prosecuting D-AG will be looking into her case? I was thinking she should buy a hair net for potentially having to work in the “facility” cafeteria.
