What about the people dumb enough to do back flips in

defense of him?

I'll just say this... I've watched Bill Maher since the Politically Incorrect days. I don't think I've missed a episode since he started on HBO... Year after year I watched him become more and more offensive, making ignorant comments about President Obama not being black enough (according to Maher's dumbass stereotypes), disrespectful comments about women, gays, Muslims--basically everyone in the democratic tent except for white guys.

As usual, I tuned in Friday and then I heard that comment. I had to pause and rewind--did this mfcker really just say that? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of the situation, but for me personally, it still would have been highly offensive if he had said "I'm not a house slave." But it looks like he wanted to pack in as much disrespect as possible, so he said what he said.

Let's be clear: The Slavery of Africans in this country is NOT a laughing matter. 400 years of brutal rapes, abuse, murder and torture is not funny. So fuck any ignorant asshole who thinks it's ok to joke about that.

Do I think Bill's intent was malicious? No, but I see now that his disrespect for his fans (many who happen to be African American) has reached the point of no return. I'm not among those calling for him to be fired, but I will not subject myself to his abuse anymore. Enough is enough.
I almost blame myself for watching in the first place in light of his recent unhinged anti-Muslim rants, etc. I'm done!

Bernie's comments annoy me and you may not like Hillary, but we're being baited

Can we all agree that Hillary, Bernie, and most democrats/progressives have good intentions? Great! We are not enemies! If you're at the point where you think we are enemies, it's time to step back, take a break, and let some of the fake news wear off.

If Bernie/Hillary or some other well-meaning Democrat says something stupid, we should be able to discuss it, laugh, roll our eyes and move on. Yes we have different methods and priorities and timetables. But we can work together as we've always done.

Someone (in Russia?) is having a LOT of fun riling up both sides and eating popcorn as the fireworks erupt. That thought annoys me more than anything Bernie could ever say or do because there is so much at stake. If we don't get this right starting this year in the runoffs through 2018, it's over for our movement, and maybe for the country as well. The end!

Arrest warrant issued for Georgia cop who lied about being shot by a black man



Authorities in Jackson said they will issue a warrant for the arrest of a police officer who allegedly lied about being shot by an unidentified suspect only described as a black male.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation issued warrants for the arrest of Officer Sherry Hall. Hall is accused of issuing false statements and writings and concealment of facts, tampering with evidence, interfering with government property and violation of oath.

Hall reportedly then fired two shots into the wood line near Camellia Court using the Glock .22 issued to her by the Jackson Police Department.

Records show Hall has also been previously charged with a felony. She was charged with first-degree criminal damage to property after an arrest in Spalding County in the 90s and received a five year probation. GBI didn't initially know about that Glock .2

Now Ivanka is claiming that her father "sacrificed greatly" to enter the political arena

He is left economically, but not socially

That's my conclusion based on actually listening to him on various shows.

uggh. It's not that simple, Bernie

So many teabaggers have no idea that the Medicaid & Medicare benefits they and/or their families rely on are from the government. Furthermore, they think it's ok to use it themselves, but everyone else who relies on it is a lazy "taker." It's impossible to reason with people who are racist, ignorant, and most importantly selfish.

This idea that all democrats have to do is toss a significant portion of our base under the bus to pick up ignorant folks who still won't get it is preposterous! I used to think that way to back when Howard Dean was running.
