Thoughts :

Liberals should definitely get their hopes up very, very high….

You know, it’s not “liberals” who get worked up about Trump. Liberals understand that you don’t win every election, you have to tolerate what happens when you don’t, and that although Trump is an unusually caustic individual, there is no reason to believe that he will be any different than any other president — — when he’s gone, he’s gone.

that John Bolton is going to provide the information needed to bring down the Trump administration and restore order to the universe. Definitely put all your eggs in that basket and invest all of your emotions in it.

Yep. The John Bolton who was one of the liar liar pants on fire enemies of All That Is Good during the runup to the Iraq War is suddenly going to be a Truthful Angel, and nobody will mention that he’s also a disgruntled ex-employee who will do or say ANYTHING to make sure that Americans are always killing somebody someplace all the time.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved the Doomsday Clock to 100 seconds to midnight, largely due to senseless recent escalations between the US and Russia. But hey, nuclear armageddon is a small price to pay if we get to retaliate for even a single one of those $46,000 worth of Russian Facebook memes.

Why the hell are we giving even a penny in aid to that feckless outfit in Ukraine, anyway?

The 2016 Democratic presidential primary was rigged. … The same will be true of the 2020 primary.

Yep. There is zero chance that the Dems will nominate a candidate who is not a Dem.

If you’re a professional news reporter doing the same, you should immediately change careers.

Or at least drop the word “professional” from your resume.

Don’t babble about the need to “support” anti-government protesters in unabsorbed nations. “Support” is too conveniently vague.

One of the things we should now have learned over the last two decades is that the removal of an authoritarian government is not always a good thing for the people.

And…..the US doesn’t support who it supports based on righteous principles; it supports who it supports based on What’s Good For The US Government and it’s Economic Backers.
