  1. Roy Moore LOSES

    Good. I hope that is true of millions more in a nation where half of all eligible voters stay home on election day. BTW: Can't find the stat, but I believe turnout for this special election comprised only 25% of all eligible voters. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/politics/alabama-exit-polls/?utm_term=.ba3488fc626a
  2. Roy Moore LOSES

    Please keep in mind this is Alabama we're talking about. In many, many other states, Moore's public statements and abhorrent behavior would have long ago precluded his viability as a candidate for public office. Chances are good that Judge Moore would have faced serious charges decades ago for the numerous accusations that many people in Alabama have seemingly turned a blind eye to.

    Finally, an appropriate statement based on the information available. Well said. Thank you.

Panthers better not go to sleep between the first and fourth quarters or they'll find themselves in yet another classic Carolina nail-biter. Cam and company refuse to fall into their old bad habits, late GB rally fails to gain traction, Panthers 34 Packers 24.
  6. US laying groundwork for US-Iran war

    Jake Tapper Completely HUMILIATES Nikki Haley On Trump's "STUPID" Actions With North Korea, Israel. Will of the people? Moving peace forward? Some see this dolt becoming our next Secretary of State. Trump and Haley are completely out of their depth when it comes to diplomatic negotiations.

    Wait for the payoff during the last 30 seconds or jump right to it.

  11. US laying groundwork for US-Iran war

    The only way the dems were going to get their Russian sanctions passed in a GOP controlled congress was by sacrificing Obama's signature foreign policy achievement for peace. Bottom Line: GOP hates Iran and has for decades. They've been itching for war long before Trump ever came to power. The democratic leadership is so feckless that they were willing to sacrifice peace in the Middle East in order to advance their narrative for failing to win an election against the least popular presidential candidate in American History.

    Xenophobes and the GOP are like peanut butter and jelly and have been since at least the end of WWII.

    Did you ever take the time to consider why the Russian Sanctions were joined to those of Iran?
  14. US laying groundwork for US-Iran war

    The GOP leadership, Israel and Saudi Arabia made it clear they were opposed to any nuclear weapons agreement with Iran long before it was ever signed by Obama. Trump is simply fulfilling GOP policy by trying to undermine the deal.

    There is more than a little truth to the "both sides" meme. Dems need to demonstrate that they are a clear alternative to the business as usual, pay-to-play politics, in D.C. and the state capitals around this nation. Half or more of eligible voters regularly don't bother to vote. Perhaps if there were candidates that actually represented average Americans interests rather than those of a few moneyed donors and corporations these MIA voters would reconsider and take the time to vote? Their study took data from nearly 2,000 public-opinion surveys and compared what the people wanted to what the government actually did. What they found was extremely unsettling: The opinions of the bottom 90% of income earners in America has essentially no impact at all. Put another way, and I'll just quote the Princeton study directly here: Really think about that for a second. If you've ever felt like your opinion doesn't matter and that the government doesn't really care what you think, well … you're right. But, of course, there's a catch. ...unless you're an "economic elite." http://www.upworthy.com/20-years-of-data-reveals-that-congress-doesnt-care-what-you-think
  16. US laying groundwork for US-Iran war

    Trump signed the Russian trade sanctions and has had our military supporting Islamic terrorists attacking Russian and Syrian troops. How exactly is Trump being a "total stooge" to Russia? https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia/trump-signs-russia-sanctions-bill-moscow-calls-it-trade-war-idUSKBN1AI1Y4 President Donald Trump's administration has once again threatened to strike the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, despite threats of consequences by Russia, which has kept its defenses on high alert since a previous attack earlier this month. http://www.newsweek.com/trump-war-bombing-syria-challenge-russia-iran-629526 Seems like that would be the exact opposite of being a "total stooge" to Russia. As far as Iran goes, the Republicans and their friends in Saudi Arabia and Israel have had a hard-on for attacking Iran going all the way back to at least the late 1990's. Had Dick Cheney had his way the USA would have invaded Iran during GWB's second term. I know you'd like to disassociated the GOP from the things that Trump is doing right now, but the reality is he is following the republicans long held playbook to a T. “As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan…He said it with reproach–with disbelief, almost–at the breadth of the vision. I moved the conversation away, for this was not something I wanted to hear. And it was not something I wanted to see moving forward, either. …I left the Pentagon that afternoon deeply concerned.” – Gen. Wesley Clark, Winning Modern Wars
  17. FCC to repeal Net Neutrality

    Evangelical beliefs, the anti-abortion issue and NRA hysteria have certainly convinced many to vote GOP. These issues lead many to vote against their own economic best interests. Dems have certainly done themselves no favors, pandering to identity politics as well as pushing political correctness beyond its limits, attempting to eliminate phrases like "Islamic Terrorists" and "Illegal Aliens". The democratic party needs to seriously reevaluate their political priorities. They need to find a way to attract their traditional base, working class/middle America, back to the fold. Until they do, the 1% and corporations will continue to grow richer at the expense of the American public with policies like this one.
  18. FCC to repeal Net Neutrality

    Once again, republican corporate stooges implement policies that defy the public's will and favor corporate donor interests. Begs the question, why do voters continue to elect these same republican corporate stooges, each and every election cycle?
  19. FCC to repeal Net Neutrality

    Trump's policy on immigration is essentially the same as all republicans for the last 50 years. For all the xenophobia Trump has been stirring up pandering to his base, the reality is deportations are down in comparison to Obama's last year in office.
  20. FCC to repeal Net Neutrality

    Insert any other republican as POTUS and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference when it comes to policy or legislation. Trump may act like an idiot, but his policies are straight out of the GOP playbook... and that includes the destruction of net neutrality to serve their corporate overlords.
  21. Roy Moore = Matt Lauer; Sacrificial Lambs, now what?

    Believing "corporations are people" and "money is free speech", has nothing to do with being independent or moderate or conservative. It has everything to do with being corporatists.
  22. Roy Moore LOSES

    Funny how Trump is on board with the very same goals as the mainstream republicans: Tax cuts for the rich and corporations, more military spending, more war, less regulations for Wall Street, lack of concern for environmental damage in the name of bigger corporate profits, cutbacks in health and human services and non-stop pandering to the religious right. Trump is doing all the same things Pence or any other mainstream republican would be doing right now. The only division I can see is there is a small, but powerful group of republicans called the Freedom Caucus that are even bigger right wing extremists.
  23. Should include Honorable Mention for the offensive line players as well.
  24. Roy Moore LOSES

    Looks like Moore will not go away quietly, he has not conceded the election. Expect a request for a recount.
