About Me

I am a disgruntled former DU member. Most people here are fine, but the site is ruined by zealous Hillary supporters. DU took my money and put my account on everlasting review. Cowards. Dishonest cowards.

Mosque attack on Canadian TV

Source: Al Jazeera

Just caught the end of a short mention. No details yet. Hope link works.

Target list. Which programs will they attack?

I know of a couple they really hate. Job Corps, Americorps, Peace Corps, Head Start, National Endowment for the Arts, Public Broadcasting. Other suggestions?

Trump screws Canada auto workers.

Big Three auto makers are in bed with Trump and his mandate not to move US jobs to Mexico, but they can move Canadian jobs to Mexico, and they wasted no time getting started. GM already announced it will move one plant from Canada to Mexico, with more to follow. So if you're in Canada and somebody goes off on you, yelling at you for electing an asshole, it might be an auto worker.

Our evolution on wall thinking

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

Mr. Pena Nieto, pay for my wall!

TV news showing Trump's confab with auto makers.

They seem to be kissing him on every part of his person. I'm sure they're thrilled about finally killing off the unions forever.

Canadian TV almost calls Spicer a liar.

They showed Spicer claiming this inauguration was attended by more people than any other inauguration in our history. "But that is not true," said the TV reporter. Interesting they didn't let somebody else refute Spicer, but they did it themselves. Did the US news outlets do this?

Canadian news not waffling

Some of the marchers told interviewers, "This is not JUST an antiTrump rally." But it's clear a big purpose is to oppose Trump. TV news on Canada is reporting it as primarily an event to protest Trump and his policies.

How did it happen?

It does seem inconceivable that Hillary Clinton was left off a list of inspirational women. So what are the mechanics of this? I would think Hillary supporters on the organizing committee would insist her name be on the list. So what happened? This seems to be a very odd situation.

Please stop doing this.

We are getting a series of posts explaining how the women's march is somehow "tainted" because one of the organisers was a Bernie supporter, or dissed Hillary, or something. Are you serious, people? Can you not resist trampling sour grapes even for a few days? Even if your manufactured outrage detracts from the women's march? Are you unable to draw any lines? Have you no self control at all? Smoke a doobie, drink a beer, or do some breathing excercizes. Something, anything, to control these destructive impulses. Please.

TGIF

Well, it's Friday. End of another week. Not much going on here. No plans for the weekend. Some old Elvis movies on TV. Just another day, I guess.
