Influential SF writer and anthologist Harlan Ellison dies at 84. Is he still read and appreciated?

Ok. I’m gonna vote for one of them, but damn, they are racing to see which one is going to make Georgia look like the Inbred Capitol of the Nation. The ads? Brian Shemp was funny in the first one with his daughter’s suitor but, damn, nobody’s Southern Accent is that exaggerated. And Casey Kegel? That tape makes him look like another Swamp Monster. Can I write in SAM Nunn??

There was a hearing today on the Trump charity fraud case. According to David Fahrenthold the judge is urging Trump to settle because the evidence is so overwhelming against him. Trump can be called to testify according to the judge. The judge also says that Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric should go ahead and take the one year ban on serving on any charity boards and even if they don’t again the evidence is so overwhelming that the judge will do it if they don’t. Also Trump filed 4 false tax returns under penalty of perjury. I don’t know where… Read more »

How could anyone be expected to understand tax law? Or campaign finance law? Or personal financial disclosures?
Shady, shady, shady.

Well, well, well….Hillary making a roundabout comparison of herself to Churchill. Wow! The only valid mention that family can have to anything “Churchill” would be to the stogies so aptly placed on Bill’s Oval Office desk.

It’s like clockwork with these Republicans. You can always guarantee things are going badly for Trump when they start twisting something Hillary or Bill or Obama said or did. Rick Wilson even has a running joke on twitter about it. Whenever things are going badly for Trump he calls it “email time”. LOL.

Any of the Libs here also wanna abolish ICE?

Catherine Bernard GOP HD 80 is advocating for the abolition of ICE. So it isn’t just some liberals. Remember ICE only came into existence with George W. Bush. For decades before that it was INS. So it’s not like we can’t live without ICE.

I think this is rhetoric that is a direct reaction to the zero tolerance policy. Enforcement policy that swings wide to the right makes for an equal an opposite reaction that swings to the left. After the fight which arose because of a poorly planned and poorly executed policy, it will all fizzle out and go back to the center.

Hey Noway! Looks like you and me today. The others are probably recuperating from marching and rallying for illegal aliens in yesterday’s heat.

Sometimes we have to read UK newspapers to learn what’s going on in the US of A. This indicates the marchers for illegal alien entry into the US yesterday must be non-environmentalists…

And this guy’s a white dude – does that mean he’s a racist illegal alien?

I read this story in several U.S. outlets. I think the key is maybe to access local news outlets, not just national ones.
Plus, I see the genius in your attempt to disparage large portions of the country for the acts of one person. Impeccable logic, too, laced with just a dash of race baiting.

This is like political masturbation. There’s no real involvement, it’s just self-gratification.

You guys are a scream! You don’t address the dipshit antics of your side that I regularly school you on. But, you really can’t because everything done politically by you guys is truly indefensible. To quote DeNiro, when he was cogent, “You got ‘nuthin! You don’t got the book keeper! You got nuthin!” Y’alls meltdown continues….

LOL. Trump says “North Korea no longer a nuclear threat all the while Lil Kim has been expanding his nuclear arsenal. Of course Trump got played.

Let me get this straight. Libs want to attack the police that protect us from drug gangs and the illegal criminal element. They don’t like the police because they are racist. So who will libs call when they are robbed or assaulted? They want to gut the military that protects us because they cause so much damage around the world. They want everyone white to feel guilty for being born because having lighter skin is racist…Lets tear down all of our statues for some odd reason and lets get all giddy because a wealthy 28 year old socialist just got… Read more »

Sorry, dude, all the idiocy is embedded in your “understanding” of the people and policies you mention. It probably doesn’t make sense to you because it’s nonsensical, and no one actually feels that way. But hey, if you feed your mind with deceptive rhetoric, you will be brainwashed by it.

Liberal Illegal Goober, Caesar Vargas, wants “universal voting for everyone.” US Citizens, though, right? Ohhhh, Hell Nawwwww! “No taxation with representation”, he spews!!!! What a cartoon! Pulll-eeeeeeze, Libs, Bedwetters, Morons and Whiners, pulll–eeeeze run publicly on that! Shall I call Stevie Nicks for a quick performance of “Landslide”? LMAO!

Michael Cohen is making the Gen. Flynn statement about his loyalty is to his family and his country not to Trump. I wonder if some sort of plea deal is going to be forthcoming. All the hundreds of thousands of tapes, documents, phone call records etc. is going to be released to SD NY this week.
