Quite A Week, Huh?

A message from the last honorable Republican president:

“The search for a scapegoat is the easiest of all hunting expeditions.”

- Dwight D. Eisenhower


Why did Bill Barr really want the AG job?

Until late 2018 he served on the board of Time Warner, which AT&T wanted to acquire. The DOJ fought the merger for years and Barr promised, as AG, he'd recuse himself from the process.

He was approved as AG on February 14th, at which point the DOJ said "We're not going to fight this case any longer". The merger went through two weeks later.

Did I mention Barr has at least $2 million in AT&T stock?
For the record, in Barr's eight years with Time Warner he was instrumental in the layoff of 10,000 employees.

Meanwhile he saw to it that CEO Jeff Bawkes compensation package went from $26 million a year to $50 million a year.


Did anyone else here that huge, explosive noise that sounded like "Screw You, America!"?

Yeah, that was Senate Leader Mitch McConnell triggering the nuclear option on the appointment of federal judgeships. Republicans can now ram through conservative federal judges to lifetime positions with as little as two hours of debate, as opposed to the 30 hours previously required.

Why would McConnell do this? Because he knows Republicans will lose the Senate and the Presidency in 2020 so it's time to pack the courts with conservative apparatchiks NOW. And once you own the courts in this country you own everything.


I have an idea regarding the increasing number of extremist/supremacist videos appearing on the net, especially on Youtube.

How about a Youtube/Wikipedia hybrid?

The site would allow video content but it would require that the content be collaboratively fact-checked. Videos that undergo rigorous examination, and pass, will be higher in the search index. Those that receive lower scores will require revision or face deletion.

Reviewers can remain anonymous but they would have to supply enough personal information to ensure that they're real people. This would also limit each person to one account only.

Just a thought. What you thinky?

(PS, this would never work on Facebook, which shows you just how dangerous FB can be to the public zeitgeist.)


And finally: Adam Schiff, you totally rock!

How to succeed in life, by donald j. trump
Always have a rich daddy.
Always bury your records so that no one can disprove your claims.
Always conspire with foreign agents and conservative fanatics to make yourself dictator.
Always have cigarettes to bribe the screws.
