    Putin, The Police and Citigrou

    In the end, no one can maintain their power because of the inverse property of power, every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. And that is our eternal job as the majority of human beings on this planet, to be that equal and opposite reaction to those who accumulate power and use it to gratify themselves at the expense of the lives and well being of others.

    If Republicans Were Around Dur

    Republicans argued that the information in the Spanish Inquisition Torture Report was faulty, claiming that there was no torture but just “enhanced inquisitional procedures”.

    The Torture Report - An Organi

    What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn’t work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation’s moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.

A GOP strategist has declared that the week of the Midterm Elections “was a dark week for Republicans, and for everyone who wants to see America remain the world’s most vibrant, most powerful nation.” What the HELL! Where was he?

Good morning everyone and welcome to the 5th anniversary edition of Morning Blog.

Memento Media1

Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans.

"Walk with me. Talk with me."

As we all know, there’s a big difference between wanting to engage folks with varying opinions in conversation and just plain old garden variety trolling. When you see the following techniques employed — you know that you’ve found yourself a genuine troll. Bless his li’l heart…

Many veterans are injured either physically or emotionally or by some illness brought on by (in my case) Agent Orange. We all carry memories that we wish we never had to.
