… is there a response other than an ad hominem that effectively rebuts his allegations?
Inquiring minds want to know.
I’m fine. Thanks for your concern!
Just very busy.
P.S. Mars is good.
Thom Hartmann is NOT on KPFA, and the name of the city is Berkeley, not Berkley.

That was back in November, and the topic was the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett, but the underlying theme was essentially the same:
“The donors clearly were fine with having a Justice [Amy Coney] Barrett. You know we supposedly live in a representative democracy, but it’s pretty clear, we have two corporate parties that are both playing to…

With all due respect, this is a silly argument.
If Nigel Tufnel finds the volume set at 4 and turns it up to 11, he is increasing the volume to 11, but that doesn’t mean he’s added 11 to it.
As usual the Democrats have proven what crappy negotiators they are. They should’ve demanded an additional $2,000 and then dared the GOP to reduce it. Then,…[Read more]
If I’m not mistaken, Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi have both appeared on Carlson’s show.

According to Mr. [Wayne] Barrett’s book [“Rudy!”], in 1934, a decade before the mayor’s birth, Harold Giuliani, with an accomplice, pulled a gun on a milkman in a Manhattan building, robbed him of $128.82, and gave a false name to the police when he was arrested. He served a year and a half at Sing…
