Keith Scott... One Thing I Have Not Heard Emphasized.....

Is that he had a brain injury. Did you notice how the wife screams to the cops that he has a brain injury and then states he just took his meds and that he is no threat to the cops.

This information should figure prominently into the news and, yet, I have heard it only once. The cops attack a man who is not able to think properly, isn't this important? It is to me. Why is no one covering this? I know, I know, it is easier to sweep an illegal kill under the rug when it is a 'big scary black man' involved and not someone who is disabled and unable to thoroughly think or defend himself.

Um, Did Donald's Representative Admit He Committed Tax Evasion?

Last night I was watching MSNBC and they were talking about Trump and how he get paid money for a lot of things such as speeches, etc.... and he tells the organization to pay it to his foundation instead of himself. The representative (I just had a back procedure done and was on pain meds so I cannot remember who the representative was or even the show. Sorry!) said that since it was like his money, anyway, he just took it from the foundation to use it.

Well, it was not his money, it was the foundation's money. And using it in bribes was already illegal. But let's look at what Trump was really doing. Trump would have had to pay taxes on the money if it were to go straight into his bank account. By having the money deposited into the foundation, no taxes would be paid on it at all. Then Trump withdraws it and uses it while cheating the government, and our citizens, out of the money we should have gotten.

Their rationalization of what Trump did is that it is ok because it was only tax evasion? Shouldn't the IRS be taking a really close look at this?

The Rape Question Was What Got Me And....

I am not seeing anything about it.

Trump was told that a guy's daughter would not join the military because of how many rapes that transpire and he asked what Trump would do about this.

Trump's basic response was that he would make sure the military got real courts. There was nothing about preventing rape or even helping the victims, it was just getting better courts. That would not make me feel safer and I feel it is one of the worst answers he could have given - besides Trump's tweet that Matt read that essentially said what 'geniuses' (sarcasm) the military were and what did they expect when they let men and women serve together?

Holy cow this blew my mind. (both Trump's answer and the tweet) As a rape survivor and victim advocate, this enraged me. Does it enrage anyone else?
