Ongoing protests against police violence raise the question— if the police could be made to either serve a constructive social role or disappear, would the objectives of the protests disappear with them? Racism, as it is being put forward, is certainly a l…
Here’s your political puzzler for the day: Which of these two things poses a greater threat to the country:
- An incompetent and boastful president who has no previous government experience and who is rash and impulsive in his dealings with the media, foreign leaders and his critics?

A number of recent document releases shine new lights on ‘Russiagate’. That conspiracy theory, peddled by the Obama administration, the Democratic Party aligned media and ‘deep state’ actors opposed to President Trump, alleged that Trump was in cahoots with Russia. The disinformation campaign had the purpose of sabotaging his presidency.

Between Biden and Trump, U.S. voters have no alternative to our anxious empire’s lawless conduct abroad.

0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. If a battery can go a million miles, only need one car per lifetime.
Yawn! was my first reaction when I read this. Couldn’t they come up with a more believable fairy tale?
The German government says tests performed on samples taken from Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny showed the presence of the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok.

There is little to be surprised about by recent events in Kenosha, Wisconsin given:
+ The deepening crisis of Black life in the COVID-19 period.
+ The persistent problem of murderous and racist policing.
+ The possession of video-capable smart phones by tens of millions of Americans.
And thinking that, is sad in itself. 🙁 RIP Black Panther

Sometimes random events come together in ways that help clarify our thinking. I had such an event last Friday. I was happy that day because Bloomberg ran a column by me on an idea I’ve toyed with for years: replacing the corporate income tax with a tax on stock returns.
The logic is that this is a simple and largely foolproof meth…

🙁 But then, there is no climate change according to the Pumpkin Fuhrer.

plus the pandemic, very low turnout. Even more people will realize ‘nothing will fundamentally change’ whether they vote or not.
Inslee will win based on COVID response which was orders of magnitude better than Pumpkin Fuhrer’s. But in the end, Inslee just another traitorous superdelegate like the rest who voted HRC over Bernie who won 72% of caucus vote. Way to stand up for your constituents Jay.
