Manafort To Go To Jail; Why It's Significant Beyond Manafort A judge has revoked Paul Manafort's bail and ordered that he be put in jail. Manafort had put up a $10 million bond. After he was found to be violating the terms of his bail by attempting to influence two government witnesses, the judge took away his freedom. This is good news in a number of ways that go beyond Manafort.

Ten Reasons Arming Teachers is a Bad Idea Presidential NRA puppet Donald Trump, echoing NRA talking points, has called for arming teachers. He says it will dissuade shooters from attacking gun-free zone schools. He says that having teachers and janitors armed will cut the time it takes to respond, since it takes six or seven minutes for first responders to arrive. Here are some reasons its a bad, stupid, dangerous, democracy threatening idea.

Election Day Tests Democratic Party, not Trump Today we'll see just how bad the Democratic party is. My prediction is that the DNC and Democratic leaders will fail, or, at best, scrape by. Today, for a healthy political opposition party going up against a party led by Donald Trump, with his 58% negative polling, should be a massive victory. But polls are not predicting anything close to that.

What about Junk News? Every day I flip on a news channel, hoping to see some journalism. I'm usually disappointed. Most of the time I see, from the major news networks, junk news. If there's going to be a conversation about "Fake news," there should also be a conversation about junk news. What is junk news? It's a regurgitation or creation of distractions that take us away from the real problems we face in the world.

The 'N Word' We SHOULD Be Using This is a word that has been kept in the dark, hidden and avoided. But it is a word that we should all be aware of and using every day. We should be using it--and it is, in my opinion, a dirty word-- to identify the enemy of democracy, the enemy of justice, the enemy of the middle class and the ninety-nine percent.

21st Century American Slaves In the time before abolition, slave owners would cut the hamstrings of slaves so they couldn't run away. In a way, American workers who are in jobs they hate, that they are forced to stay in to keep their health insurance, are also hamstrung. They can't run away either.

Progressive Vision: How to Prevent the Chronically Failing Dem Leadership from Losing in 2018 Never forget that the reason we have Donald Trump is because the Democratic party decided that they knew better than the American people, so they inflicted Top-down, and worse, rigged primaries upon us, setting up Hillary Clinton to be the losing candidate against Trump. The same stupid, clueless, failed Dem leadership is still in charge and they appear to be using the same doomed to fail approach for the 2018 election

Top Down Nuclear Masturbatory Fantasies "Just nuke the bastards." That's the reflexive response millions of people have given for dealing with Iran, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, North Korea. In years past, they said the same for Cuba, North Vietnam and Russia. It's Top down nuclear bomb masturbatory fantasy.

Did Trump Accidentally Declare War on North Korea? Today, North Korea says that the US has declared war against it. This is not surprising. A competent, responsible leader exercises restraint in discussing relations with nations where there is friction. A stupid piece of sh*t leader mouths off with zero consideration of repercussions.
