    • Here was my neighborhood last night
      Because the family of a mentally ill Philadelphia man holding a knife called for an ambulance, and the cops showed up. They claim he “charged” them and they shot and killed him. The mental health unit is a pilot program and isn’t paid to work on the weekends. Protesters didn’t do this, looters did. (Maybe … Continue reading Here was my neighborhood last nigh […]

    • Interview Part 2: Politics Thru Climate Change
      This second excerpt from my interview is more interesting and longer. This is the second clip from my interview with Ian Welsh (Ian blogs at ianwelsh.net). For this segment, we went on a wild ride discussing the big picture mess that is US politics and society more broadly. I asked Ian what might happen if […]

Ecuador. Duh.

Mueller team: What did Paul Manafort and Julian Assange discuss when he came to the embassy in London.

Ecuador: Paul Manafort? {{rifling through logbook}} Paul… Manafort. Nope. Could he have used another name? Pablo? Manoamano? {{staff giggles in background}}

Mueller team: He was the American. Casually dressed when he exited the embassy, wearing sandy-coloured chinos, a cardigan and a light-coloured shirt. Visited in March 2016. Stayed about {{checking video on iPhone}} 40 minutes.

Ecuador: {{crickets}}

Mueller team: Take your time.

Chaos and insanity.

Let’s think this through, shall we?

We are going to trap these human beings between a rock and a hard place. If we close the border coming into the US, what makes us think Mexico won’t close its border going out of the US? What about transportation of goods over the border in either direction? What about families who have members working legally in either country who would like to visit? What about tourism?

What will Canada do? Has anyone thought about whether the Canadians will look with horror on how we’re tear gassing poor little Honduran kids in diapers?

What EXACTLY is the problem with processing these people like we used to do or sending aid to their countries to put down lawless insurrections? If we want them to stay in Central America, maybe we should help make Central America more livable for them. Oh, that’s not YOUR problem? Just wait until the borders close.

How about the Russians moving in on Ukraine?

How about Ford planning to close plants and lay-off thousands of Trump voters because of the rising costs of imported steel that we tariffed?

How about the romaine lettuce we can’t eat because the FDA was allowed to relax regulations to appease farmers?

How about the deficit becoming a source of frustration to Trump after he and his party foolishly cut taxes on very wealthy people and corporations?

This is just the beginning of the wheels coming off the country and all because a lot of really snooty white women couldn’t see how they were flim flamming them on social media about Hillary Clinton in 2016.

This is what we will get: political, economic and social instability. It’s going to get worse. And we haven’t even talked about climate change that no one can escape from.

He is what he is- a large, soft, orange colored, ignorant, mean, fool of a crime boss who is using his position to enrich his family. You can tell by their Christmas decorations that they don’t have souls.

The Republican Senators and House members are letting this happen by not holding him accountable. The only protests we should be having right now should be at the Capitol in DC. Let’s see them try to cross our border.
