ISIS is loving Brexit, guaranteed.

I do not doubt that they hoped for it or even that these lone wolf attacks are meant to divide Europe and the US. All of it. And of course, the idiots on the right are giving them exactly what they want. It's depressing really, how easily manipulated the right is and how we on the left have to be so vigilant, continually and vigorously, in order to keep those dumbasses from fucking up in a colossal way, again and again. (see George Derrrrrrr Bush).

Can someone ask the Repugnant Party,

and their like-minded minions scampering around the DU, why 'radical Islamic turrruisssts" kill far more Muslims than anyone else? When a car bomb explodes in Baghdad and kills two fitty it barely gets a mention from the Repigs.

They want to get very specific regarding what type of terrorism it is only when it suits their needs. That dickwad in Charleston didn't command a specific definition as to what type of turrurissssts he was. Was he even a turrurissst?

You see, the Repigs don't care about turrurism or turrurissssts, they like them and they like it. It helps prod the scaredy cats into electing them so they can cut taxes for their masters.

And to anyone flogging that 'radical islamic turrrrisssst" horseshit around here, you can go ahead and stow that shit straight away.

Have a nice day.

Let me try this again....for those watching the latest mass killing coverage,

are they saying that the killer chained the doors shut?

On the big stage last night, Hillary delivered.......

and T Rump looked amateurish and juvenile. It will be a rout. I contend that it is already in the bag.

Hillary will win very bigly.

With regard to T Rump and his statement on abortion.

Now is the perfect time to pounce. He just gave us our in. The simple fact is that we are already on that slippery slope to criminalizing abortion. The Pubes have passed hundreds, yes, literally hundreds of laws limiting abortion and if you cut to the chase, they want to make it illegal. Period.

So here's the rub, why doesn't the Democratic Party come out and say it: The Republican Party wants to have a national database that monitors women's menstrual cycles.

Because when you get down to it, with some states allowing abortions, for now, and with abortificant type drugs available, not to mention (CRUDITY ALERT) coat hangers etc., how the hell else can they enforce their ridiculous laws to control women? The Democrats need to pound home this database and when they say it is absurd, which they will, there are easy follow up comments like: do you or don't you support abortion bans? Then how are you going to enforce it? Are you going to monitor google searches for abortificants?

Then we should bring it on home with reality:

If you are truly against abortion then you should be for trying to minimize the conditions under which a woman chooses to have an abortion. Things like family leave would help, but the Repubes are against it. Free day care, against it. Birth control access, against it. Sex education, against it. Universal health care, against it. A living wage, against it. Equal pay, against it. A higher minimum wage, against it.

You see, the Democratic Party is actually the party that is trying to limit abortions by making women's lives better. The Republicans want to put women in jail.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

Would Bernie supporters be so kind as to define "Wall Street" for us?

You use it over and over as some sort of boogey man, but it begs the question: What are you talking about?

Do you mean banks? Investment houses? Publicly traded companies? Or anything located near to the former wall of New Amsterdam?

Just so we know exactly what it is you are denigrating all day, every day.

Let's not cut off our noses to spite our faces, mmkay?
