Re: “TGIF: Open line and video

Well, the problem with those at are Psychotic, is they have only ONE source they revere above all things, including facts.

Salon is the left wing version of the National Review in tone and lack of facts.

For a more complete comparison, a more objective source shows that Trump is self funded at roughly 27 percent, as opposed to Hillary, who is .27 percent self funded.

So far, Hillary has gotten more money, and a larger percentage of it is from outside sources. No doubt the same bankers who have used lax tax codes and had helped crash the housing market in '08.

No matter what happens, or who wins, the money will have been well spent. The big businesses will win, and the People will get stuck with the bill.

Re: “No, Obamacare hasn't produced huge increases in everyone's health insurance

Okay, let us take a look at some of the basics of this. The cots have gone up. Undeniable. But for some, or most, the subsidy is going to go up to cover that increase.

So, who is going to pay more to cover that increase of both the costs AND the subsidy?

What is dishonest was the notion that it would pay for itself. Cost is going up, no matter how a creative Arkansas blog writer named Max may dissemble.

Re: “Three congressmen question refugee resettlement in Arkansas

Oh, please, GOOF, when Reagan authorized the raid on Tripoli, it stopped activity out of Libya till the Obama/Clinton admin. You are conveniently forgetting the facts of how Hillary helped Libya go to shit, and how she helped fund ISIS.

Now, after years of dawdling on letting in Iraqi allies and families who have helped the coalition into this country, we are supposed to fast track Syrian refugees ahead of other groups who have waited longer and actually helped us?

Re: “Sunday's open line

From the brilliantly polluted mind of Hunter Thompson, noting, with nostalgia, the high water mark of the 60s,

Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Erathe kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run . . . but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant. . . .

History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of history it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the timeand which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.

My central memory of that time seems to hang on one or five or maybe forty nightsor very early morningswhen I left the Fillmore half-crazy and, instead of going home, aimed the big 650 Lightning across the Bay Bridge at a hundred miles an hour wearing L. L. Bean shorts and a Butte sheepherder's jacket . . . booming through the Treasure Island tunnel at the lights of Oakland and Berkeley and Richmond, not quite sure which turn-off to take when I got to the other end (always stalling at the toll-gate, too twisted to find neutral while I fumbled for change) . . . but being absolutely certain that no matter which way I went I would come to a place where people were just as high and wild as I was: No doubt at all about that. . . .

There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda. . . . You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. . . .

And that, I think, was the handlethat sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didnt need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fightingon our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. . . .

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water markthat place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

So, after the hope of the 60s, and all that was accomplished, we live with the great Who song lyric, "meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

The disaster of the Rolling Stone concert at Altamont brought up a failure of the Generation of Love, and few wrote about its failing better than Harlan Ellison in the Glass Teat. The sadness of a black man being beat to death to the strumming and gyration of the Stones, and thousands of hippies kept at bay by a dozen Hell's Angels.

But that generation learned, and when they got the power, they wielded it like hunters wielding clubs for baby seals.

For all the promise of the 60s, for all the progress at that moment, most of it has been washed away by the very generation that fought for those civil rights.

Re: “Nasty women rise up against The Deplorable Donald

Well, squirrel, if you want t fill your gullet with the Clinton swill, then make some tact assumption that I support Trump in any way shape or for, feel free.

I had mentioned this back when Sander was in the running. The West Coast libs were in full support for Sanders, and were vocal in their opposition to a Democratic candidate whose portfolio was more GOP than Dem.

But, like those that chose Trump, the Dems chose style over substance.

Yes, I watched the Smith roast, and how Trump bombed.

That is supposed to make everyone forget that Hillary did NOT help fund ISIS and create the Syrian refugee crisis?

For once, be honest. Like most that vote Trump because they loathe Trump, you're voting Hillary because you loathe Trump. There is no good reason to vote for someone who has destabilized regions and sucked up gobs of personal wealth and power for herself.

Cause when you say she is better than Trump, you are lying through your teeth and making weak justifications for swallowing those lies.

Re: “Nasty women rise up against The Deplorable Donald

What question,sweet little krazo? The one I already answered the second time you asked? Maybe you should worry about your senility before worrying about some irrelevant question.
