Re: “Another week done: Headlines and open line

doofus drumpf, "economic genius". In ReThug-think deficits only "matter" when money is being spent helping people; then it's "we don't have the money!"

Re: “Thursday's headlines and the open line

drumpf is a liar, chapter 8,342.

President Trump on John McCain: "I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didnt get thank you. That's ok. We sent him on the way, but I wasn't a fan of John McCain."

Re: “Hutchinson proposes school voucher program for Pulaski County; could up taxpayer transfer to private schools to near $10 million

It always STARTS with being about kids from "low-income families", except that such ventures often end up increasing racial segregation.

Of course, the desired end-state is the complete destruction of public education in this country.

Re: “Midweek: Headlines and the open line

Elections have consequences.

"It just became easier for employers to dump retirees' pensions"

"With no fanfare in early March, the Treasury Department issued a notice that allows employers to buy out current retirees from their pensions with a one-time lump sum payment. The decision reverses Obama-era guidance, issued in 2015, that had effectively banned the practice after officials determined that lump-sum payments often shortchanged seniors."

Re: “Tuesday: Open line and the daily news video

Ol' StevenE, mindlessly parroting, logic-free, the hannity "he wasn't right-wing!" with amazing fidelity. Well I can sure see why Fox "news" wants to lull the public with their lies, given our nazi coddler-in chief.

Since Steven lives in a world of "F(ox)acts", a few tidbits from the objective reality-based world:

Starting in 2012, the mass-murderer visited N Korea Turkey & Pakistan.

He was active on 8chan where he frequently posted racist & anti-Muslim filth as well as providing extreme-right commentary on Facebook posts.

From last fall up until Jan of this year (amidst the planning of his murderous rampage) he visited sites in Eastern Europe (Romania, Serbia, Hungary, Croatia & Bulgaria) related to historic battles against Muslim & which are known to be "pilgrimage" stops among the extreme right in Europe.

He posted images on Twitter of his weapons marked with facist verbiage two days before his terrorist attack.

He hailed drumpf as a "symbol of renewed white identity"

Fox state media will continue to lie, distract & obfuscate the growing threat of fascism in the West because they know they must, there is no ground-swell of support for such filth; doofus drumpf couldn't even come close to winning the popular vote in 2016, hence his resorting to lie after tired & thoroughly debunked lie over "illegals" voting.

Serial lying is a hallmark of the authoritarian & also gives rise to fascist violence like the NZ mass-murderer.

All this even as Brazilian facist (supporter of Brazil's murderous military dictatorship '64-'85) Bolsonaro is welcomed with open arms by our Il-doofus, also an admirer of the murderer Duterte in the Philippines.

Bolsonaro from an interview twenty years ago re the U.S. backed coup by the Brazilian military:

"the Brazilian Congress should be shut down and that the country could be changed only by a civil war that completed the job that the military regime didn't do, killing 30,000 people."

Re: “Report: Feds holding immigrant children in secret locations, including in Arkansas UPDATE

There's no incentive to release the children in a timely manner because that's a hit on their revenue stream.

"the local office of emergency management hasnt decided whether to release the documents."

This is why FOIA must be expanded, not filled with yet more loopholes. Given our anti-democratic & anti-citizen legislature, it will take an initiated act.
