Re: “Wednesday's open line and video report

Yet more war mongering from Deferment Drumpf against Iran, which has met all of it's obligations under the accord.

K. Un would rightly wonder why he should negotiate away his nukes, only to see Doofus later renege on any agreement. Art of the (con artist) Deal.

Re: “Tuesday's open line and the daily video

"Can people with this level of rage ever be "rehabbed?"

Probably not, & unfortunately they are perpetuating the sad cycle of violence into the next generation.

Re: “A.G. Rutledge absent from bipartisan action against opioid manufacturers

Mr Deere's word-salad of nothing regarding the opioid litigation was quite enlightening, given the specificity of language when Leslie is fighting anything that smacks of helping the "little people".

Leslie probably thinks it's best to let 'em get high on oxy from prescription mills, as they breathe the Koch air & drink the Koch water she's worked so hard to provide.

Docile & compliant make the best citizens, & if a few get busted, well, all the better to feed the drug enforcement/prison industrial complex.

Re: “Tuesday's open line and the daily video

Sadly, booting him from office wouldn't remove the underlying geo-political tensions, but the last thing the world needs now is a nut-job as U.S. President.

Eventually, the folks who REALLY rule this country, the one's whose business our elected "representatives" take care of in their servile manner, must understand that global cooperation is the only way forward.

This country is no longer the economic power-house that it once was. We still have the world's most powerful military (The Senate on Monday approved a $700 billion military budget, $80 billion more than last year) as the stick, but the economic power of the carrot has waned, & when all you have left is a big stick, there is much temptation to use it to fill the economic power vacuum.

Re: “Legislature itches for more control over 'independent' agencies

Creeping authoritarianism. Folks better understand that no democratic society has ever arisen from bed in the morning only to learn that dictatorship sprang into power overnight.

Maybe quit focusing on frickin' guns & look at the bigger picture; that AR-15 pop-gun & "Don't Tread on Me" flag ain't gonna do squat against a 20mm rotary cannon. Except help the gunner get a better sight-picture on the target.

Re: “Tuesday's open line and the daily video

Drumpf's so-called "speech", filled with gangster argot & laced with genocidal threats, demonstrates that he is clearly psychotic & represents an existential threat to the human race. He's got to go.

Re: “The long shadow of Paula Jones looms over Donald Trump

Drumpf's level of civil hazard in state court, while he's serving as President, may have yet to be determined, but one thing is quite clear; a Presidential pardon, even a Constitutionally iffy "self-pardon", only absolves Federal crimes, it does not offer immunity against criminal charges leveled by a state. As has been reported, Robert Mueller has recently started working closely with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in his investigation of Drumpf associates.

Whether a sitting President can be charged for violating state law while still in office isn't clear, but there would be no help from a Pence pardon should he leave office.

The nutter-verse fixation on Bill's Oval Office BJs, & their legal efforts to force him to testify about them, may come back to bite them.

But, of course, NOW things are "different".
