At the debate Tuesday, I really hope Joe says something to the effect of:

"Man, you really can pull some pretty big whopper lies out your ass Donald....."

Something like that would be awesome.

Question regarding the end of the ACA:

So, once the SC gets rid of Obamacare - is the only solution Medicare for all?

A Letter of Hope Fron Henry Rollins - I hate "we're fucked" - Great read:

My apologies if this has been posted already, but it really made me feel better and hopeful for the future.

"I hate “we’re fucked.”

I mean, I don’t want to shame anyone who has said it, thought it, or posted it. I have too. But as a philosophy, as a statement of belief, I hate it. Because it means you’ve given up.
We are absolutely NOT fucked.

Things are so bad. This country has taken a turn that I could never have predicted. It is absolutely fascist, nativist, and extremist. It’s every bit as scary as it seems.
But we are not fucked."


Giving shit back to trumsters on FB - re: dear leader's Syria bombing:

If you have some friends or relatives who are crowing about what a strong president we have after the Syria bombing, please ask them if they and trump were wrong then when they demanded that Obama ask for congressional approval to bomb Syria back on 2013.
And when you get no response from them, also remind them that no more chemical attacks happened, since 2013, until trump and crew announced that they were not going after Assad. And you can post this great link from The Blaze. Hee Hee! Still waiting for a response.


It's been fun this morning!

Conservative provocateur targets CNN with secret recordings

Source: CNN

O'Keefe said in a telephone interview with CNN on Wednesday that he has "a few hundred hours" of "secretly recorded material" from inside the network. "We're calling it CNN Leaks," he said, drawing inspiration from WikiLeaks' document dumps.

He said "part one" would be published Thursday at about 10 a.m. ET. "This is all legally recorded information," he said, declining to be more specific.
O'Keefe, who uses undercover stings to trap his targets, has a reputation for shady tactics and exaggerated statements.

So what edited crap will he have to offer tomorrow?

Eagles Of Death Metal say FU to the terrorists:

Awesome! Singing Patti Smith's classic "People Have The Power" with U2 in Paris:


Eagles of Death Metal interview about the attack at the Bataclan:

I just couldn't imagine going through this. Really scary stuff.


Fan Footage from the Eagles of Death Metal show:

I just caught this on FB. I've been to so many rock shows - I would have never thought I'd have to worry about terrorists. And if someone in the audience had a gun, how the hell would you be able to aim at anybody in the dark?? Jesus Christ

FYI - nothing graphic except for knowing what was happening after the video stops.


Jeb Bush Whines Because President Obama Uses Big Words He Can’t Understand

Really Jeb?
from Addicting Info:

For years, George W. Bush embarrassed America constantly by demonstrating his lack of intelligence on the world stage and Jeb is poised to be just like his big brother.

During his interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader, Jeb whined about how smart President Obama is and claimed that his intellect “creates chaos” in the world.

“You don’t have to be the world’s policeman, but we have to be the world’s leader—and there’s a huge difference. This guy, this president and Secretary Clinton and Secretary Kerry, when someone disagrees with their nuanced approach—where it’s all kind of so sophisticated it makes no sense, you know what I’m saying? Big-syllable words and lots of fancy conferences and meetings—but we’re not leading, that creates chaos, it creates a more dangerous world.”

In other words, Bush appears to be claiming that stupid people make better leaders and that’s why America should elect him as the next president.

Iranian Foreign Minister: 'We have never been closer' to nuclear deal

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)—Days before the deadline for a nuclear deal, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif delivered a hopeful yet circumspect message in an English-language video message posted online.

"At this 11th hour, despite some differences that remain, we have never been closer to a lasting outcome," he said Friday. "But there is no guarantee."

Officials on both sides of the negotiating table have said they are hopeful they will be able to broker a final deal on Iran's nuclear program but have emphasized in recent days that gaps remain over items that could make or break the deal.

Zarif indicated in the YouTube video that a deal could be in sight, but only if both sides are willing to strive for a "balanced deal."
