If America hates the mainstream media why do they keep watching it?

I have quit watching all tv news, no alphabets, no fox, no rt, and my blood pressure has soared because of all the grains of salt. At this point I just make ammo, oil my piece, and live my life best I can. Politicians lie, media lie, and the rest of the world sucks.

what in my original post leads you to believe that I don't know anything about what I speak about. Ask anyone on the street about brics. They won't know. Does it sound like first rodeo to you! Like I said you're not clever

I thought this was a seperate list where mature persons discuss politics. Instead I find the same old (or should I say juvenile) mean spirited bashing of anyone who hold a different political view point. Grow up for heaven sakes.

Gluegun! Is that you gluegun??

How true and it looks as if the Italians and maybe some of the other European countries are just a hares breath away from starting up the crusades again.

That would be a "hair's breadth". Meaning the width of a hair.

Someone must be calving today. It is almost six inches deep! Please send some carbon dioxide my way. Hope I don't have any burials this week.😇

8" deep this morning. I for one am going to let my diesel idle a couple of days. You know, warm up the globe a little. Hopefully it happens before the end of the week because that is when I run out of wood for my stove. P.S. You agw people need to Jack down a notch. Maybe spend some time looking for a sense of humor. Besides, if you are posting on here, you ARE the problem. Ride your horse back to your teepee and STFU.

It is the old "everybody does it so it must be OK" that commies love to use. Even though they are the only ones doing it.

When the president makes a claim without any evidence of fact then it will be fact checked. He could avoid this by keeping his claims to himself and not saying anything until he has the facts to back them up. Stop coming down on the media for doing their god damn jobs!~

Oh, and just so you know--Hitler was a Nazi and a rightwing nut. By your avatar I assume you are trying to compare Hillary to Hitler? She is a lefty and a proper comparison would be to Karl Marx...

You just proved yourself to be an uneducated fool.

The world is laughing at us, and we apparently don't care. Did you know that the Obama administration has the all time record for the number of filibusters? Look it up and see for yourself. Obama had more nominees delayed than any President in history, has had more nominees filibustered as a delaying tactic than any President in history, all perpetrated by a GOP controlled Congress. Republicans even made history by refusing to even hold hearings for an Obama nominee to the Supreme court, and now has made history again, by changing the rules for confirming Supreme Court nominees. Of course, the GOP blames Democrats for setting this precedent, since Reid changed the rules for other nominees, done out of desperation - because the GOP wouldn't approve anybody appointed by Obama. The GOP was willing to obstruct doing the business of the country, for political reasons, now accuses the Democrats of doing the same thing. The world noticed.

We elected a President that can't control his mouth, who is all over the map on policy issues, who spends more time talking about how great he is, how hugely he won the election, whining about the lack of loyalty from his own party and golfing at luxury resorts, than he does actually working on policies or governing in any way. The world laughs every time the President tweets another outrageous claim, they laugh when the chaos causes a multitude of "statements" that conflict with one another. We hear different takes on the same issue, from different administration officials and GOP lawmakers, and we don't think the world notices that?

Trump blamed Obama for the chemical attack in Syria, even though the world knows that Obama sought Congressional approval for launching military strikes after the chemical attacks in 2013, but was rebuffed by the GOP Congress. John Kerry worked out a deal with Russia, to talk Assad into giving over his chemical weapons, but he's had 4 years to make more - and the Russians let him do it. Assad has been killing beautiful little babies for 6 years, but the GOP controlled congress cut the funding for aid and for arming the rebels fighting Assad. Then, when Assad uses chemical weapons again, we said that's going too far, explicitly giving Assad a pass for the other mass murders he's committed. The world noticed.

Attacks on the free press, attacks on the health and safety of the American people, attacks on our democratic process, attacks on our privacy, attacks on everything that makes America what she is, hidden behind the rhetoric of making America great again - as though America was less great before. How can making America the laughing stock of the world, make Her great? If we want to lead the world, we need to epitomize those things that are uniquely American, those attributes that made America great in the first place, but showing how big Her balls are, is NOT a flattering optic - and there will be consequences.

I'm glad to see you came down off the fence. Too bad it was on the wrong side.

Whatever happened to Mad Magazine? I used to love reading that as a youngster. That and National Lampoon. Remember this?

My favorite NL cover was of a chicom pilot in a MIG shooting down Santa Claus and screaming, "Eat death, fat lackey of capitalist toy mongers". It was a perfect example of pinko lunacy.

OK Boys and girls, I gotcha this time. You'll NEVER figure this one out:

A palindrome is a word that reads the same when spelled backwards (eg rotavator). How could the following word be considered a palindrome?


You only rotate the letters in between f and l?

The worst president ever in just two months. He won't last til August.

By The LA Times

It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a “catastrophe.”
Still, nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck. Like millions of other Americans, we clung to a slim hope that the new president would turn out to be all noise and bluster, or that the people around him in the White House would act as a check on his worst instincts, or that he would be sobered and transformed by the awesome responsibilities of office.
Instead, seventy-some days in — and with about 1,400 to go before his term is completed — it is increasingly clear that those hopes were misplaced. In a matter of weeks, President Trump has taken dozens of real-life steps that, if they are not reversed, will rip families apart, foul rivers and pollute the air, intensify the calamitous effects of climate change and profoundly weaken the system of American public education for all. His attempt to de-insure millions of people who had finally received healthcare coverage and, along the way, enact a massive transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich has been put on hold for the moment. But he is proceeding with his efforts to defang the government’s regulatory agencies and bloat the Pentagon’s budget even as he supposedly retreats from the global stage.
These are immensely dangerous developments which threaten to weaken this country’s moral standing in the world, imperil the planet and reverse years of slow but steady gains by marginalized or impoverished Americans. But, chilling as they are, these radically wrongheaded policy choices are not, in fact, the most frightening aspect of the Trump presidency.
What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself. He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation. His obsession with his own fame, wealth and success, his determination to vanquish enemies real and imagined, his craving for adulation — these traits were, of course, at the very heart of his scorched-earth outsider campaign; indeed, some of them helped get him elected. But in a real presidency in which he wields unimaginable power, they are nothing short of disastrous.
Although his policies are, for the most part, variations on classic Republican positions (many of which would have been undertaken by a President Ted Cruz or a President Marco Rubio), they become far more dangerous in the hands of this imprudent and erratic man. Many Republicans, for instance, support tighter border security and a tougher response to illegal immigration, but Trump’s cockamamie border wall, his impracticable campaign promise to deport all 11 million people living in the country illegally and his blithe disregard for the effect of such proposals on the U.S. relationship with Mexico turn a very bad policy into an appalling one.
In the days ahead, The Times editorial board will look more closely at the new president, with a special attention to three troubling traits:
Trump’s shocking lack of respect for those fundamental rules and institutions on which our government is based. Since Jan. 20, he has repeatedly disparaged and challenged those entities that have threatened his agenda, stoking public distrust of essential institutions in a way that undermines faith in American democracy. He has questioned the qualifications of judges and the integrity of their decisions, rather than acknowledging that even the president must submit to the rule of law. He has clashed with his own intelligence agencies, demeaned government workers and questioned the credibility of the electoral system and the Federal Reserve. He has lashed out at journalists, declaring them “enemies of the people,” rather than defending the importance of a critical, independent free press. His contempt for the rule of law and the norms of government are palpable. His utter lack of regard for truth. Whether it is the easily disprovable boasts about the size of his inauguration crowd or his unsubstantiated assertion that Barack Obama bugged Trump Tower, the new president regularly muddies the waters of fact and fiction. It’s difficult to know whether he actually can’t distinguish the real from the unreal — or whether he intentionally conflates the two to befuddle voters, deflect criticism and undermine the very idea of objective truth. Whatever the explanation, he is encouraging Americans to reject facts, to disrespect science, documents, nonpartisanship and the mainstream media — and instead to simply take positions on the basis of ideology and preconceived notions. This is a recipe for a divided country in which differences grow deeper and rational compromise becomes impossible. His scary willingness to repeat alt-right conspiracy theories, racist memes and crackpot, out-of-the-mainstream ideas. Again, it is not clear whether he believes them or merely uses them. But to cling to disproven “alternative” facts; to retweet racists; to make unverifiable or false statements about rigged elections and fraudulent voters; to buy into discredited conspiracy theories first floated on fringe websites and in supermarket tabloids — these are all of a piece with the Barack Obama birther claptrap that Trump was peddling years ago and which brought him to political prominence. It is deeply alarming that a president would lend the credibility of his office to ideas that have been rightly rejected by politicians from both major political parties.
Where will this end? Will Trump moderate his crazier campaign positions as time passes? Or will he provoke confrontation with Iran, North Korea or China, or disobey a judge’s order or order a soldier to violate the Constitution? Or, alternately, will the system itself — the Constitution, the courts, the permanent bureaucracy, the Congress, the Democrats, the marchers in the streets — protect us from him as he alienates more and more allies at home and abroad, steps on his own message and creates chaos at the expense of his ability to accomplish his goals? Already, Trump’s job approval rating has been hovering in the mid-30s, according to Gallup, a shockingly low level of support for a new president. And that was before his former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, offered to cooperate last week with congressional investigators looking into the connection between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.
On Inauguration Day, we wrote on this page that it was not yet time to declare a state of “wholesale panic” or to call for blanket “non-cooperation” with the Trump administration. Despite plenty of dispiriting signals, that is still our view. The role of the rational opposition is to stand up for the rule of law, the electoral process, the peaceful transfer of power and the role of institutions; we should not underestimate the resiliency of a system in which laws are greater than individuals and voters are as powerful as presidents. This nation survived Andrew Jackson and Richard Nixon. It survived slavery. It survived devastating wars. Most likely, it will survive again.
But if it is to do so, those who oppose the new president’s reckless and heartless agenda must make their voices heard. Protesters must raise their banners. Voters must turn out for elections. Members of Congress — including and especially Republicans — must find the political courage to stand up to Trump. Courts must safeguard the Constitution. State legislators must pass laws to protect their citizens and their policies from federal meddling. All of us who are in the business of holding leaders accountable must redouble our efforts to defend the truth from his cynical assaults.
The United States is not a perfect country, and it has a great distance to go before it fully achieves its goals of liberty and equality. But preserving what works and defending the rules and values on which democracy depends are a shared responsibility. Everybody has a role to play in this drama.
This is the first in a series.
