Like what? Vote for impeachment?

A majority of House Democrats — 134 of the 235 — endorse impeachment....

..... out of 435 members of the house. That would make 301 representatives against it.

So that's not going to work... Yet.


Trump's planned deportations are mainly for show. That's all.

These planned deportations.... are mainly for show. There are two main audiences. One is the nativists in Mr. Trump’s political base, who may have noticed that despite his huffing and puffing — and very likely partly because of it — undocumented migrants are entering the country at a rate unseen in more than a decade. .... The other audience is prospective migrants in Central America, whom the administration would like to deter by sending the message, with its deportation show of force, that trekking across the border is likely to be costly and ultimately fruitless.


BiPart... Aspirational, Delusional, or...

.... Practical?


China economic relationship already being redefined

After four decades of economic reform, China is morphing from a low-wage exporter into the largest consumer market for a growing number of industries

After four decades of economic reform, China is morphing from a low-wage exporter into the largest consumer market for a growing number of industries Chinese consumers for the first time last year bought more Cadillacs than Americans did, helping drive profits at General Motors.

"We’re at the end of a period of the globalization of production. We’re at the beginning of a period of globalization of consumption in which the center of gravity moves from baby boomers in the west to the relatively young Chinese.”



I was involuntarily subject to a Faux News broadcast. Thankfully, no sound, but the chyron read:


Only? ONLY???? Boy, that's some spin.

Condoms Rob Women of Remarkable Chemicals (Not the Borowitz Report)

Media Matters reports:

Before joining President Donald Trump's administration, right-wing commentator Robert W. Patterson argued against contraceptives because “condom use robs” women of the “remarkable chemicals” in semen; said married women in the workplace have undermined society; and suggested that homosexuality is a mental disorder and sexual orientation can be forcibly changed.


The U.S. is losing badly.....

The new space race pits the U.S. against China. The U.S. is losing badly.

The stakes are high: Who will be able to obtain the vast resources in space, for example, water/ice, iron, titanium, platinum and nickel; secure the routes of trade; and write the rules of space commerce such as trade in energy propellant and precious metals. Who will benefit from the military power that flows from that industrial might?

What a load of bunkum!! Iron? The earth is pretty much completely made of iron. Water and ice? Just looking out my window right now convinces me we have way, way more water and ice than we need.

Trade routes in space? What the heck are trade routes in space?

Space is pretty much just a vast, empty vacuum with a few interesting, shiny objects here and there.

"You will be amazed at what they have to share"

Well, it's official , I'm a progressive activist....


Progressive Activists have strong ideological views, high levels of engagement with political issues, and the highest levels of education and socioeconomic status. Their own circumstances are secure. They feel safer than any group, which perhaps frees them to devote more attention to larger issues of social justice in their society. They have an outsized role in public debates, even though they comprise a small portion of the total population, about one in 12 Americans. They are highly sensitive to issues of fairness and equity in society, particularly regarding race, gender, and other minority group identities. Their emphasis on unjust power structures leads them to be very pessimistic about fairness in America. They are uncomfortable with nationalism and ambivalent about America’s role in the world.

Doesn't say anything about being a sucker for on line quizzes. I guess that can be assumed.
