This good-cop bad-cop BS by Gawdy and his GOP Benghazi swift boat is shameful.

Not putting smear innuendo in the official report but allowing nasty, innuendo to be spewed by the rest of the committee is just so transparent to any thinking people. Sadly, a lot of unthinking people will be listening to the GOP tell them how to think about the report and they will be voting. They have almost stooped to blaming Chris
Stevens for being over zealous about Libya.

I hope the Dems have a good team to come out and set the record straight.

How much more Benghazi can we take? This stuff is all so much BS but it appeals to the

GOP base. Nothing really new about this except how much and how many lies and untruths the GOP multi investigations. Trump will ride this to a 1 point rise and then what?

Think they could ever spend as much time on creating a jobs bill for the American people?

Never forget: 241 U.S. and 58 French servicemen, six civilians, and the two suicide bombers. An obscure group calling itself 'Islamic Jihad' claimed responsibility for the bombings and that the bombings were aimed to get the MNF out of Lebanon.[1] 1983--

Iis there an ad with Trump rejoicing in Brexit because it is good for his golf course in Scotland?

If not, there needs to be one. And it needs to be made to so it can be played on the radio. More of Trump supporters listen to radio than cable news.

Another mass shooting. Prince Georges County MD. District Heights.

No further info right now.

Damn, guns and idiots who use them.

Why don't millennials vote in the numbers they represent?

I pray that what happened with Brexit doesn't happen here. And it won't if the millennials GOTV for the Dems up and down ticket.

Globalization will not and cannot be stopped...automation will not allow it to be stopped.

People need to come to grips with the role that automation plays in the global economy and the loss of good paying jobs world-wide.

Don't have the answers but I do recognize the problem that I believe a lot of people are missing. What are some of the answers? Answers would involve selective elimination automation in some sectors and using more person-power bringing its own set of issues like good benefits, profit margin cuts, and return on investment reductions. Cuts and reductions doesn't mean "elimination" of profits or good returns. It just means "reasonable" or "excellent" profits and ROIs instead of OBSCENE profits and returns.

But who would support changes like this? Who even sees the need for changes like this? Something as simple as using a person to answer business phones instead of answering machines.

So Trump's mother was a Scottish immigrant? Was she ever undocumented?

Just wondering.

It still boggles my mind how people who are first, second or even third generation citizens of immigrant parents can work so hard to disenfranchise and be against the millions of Native Americans and children of the generations of the first slave crossings.

Frightening about the assassination of PM Jo Cox and the nexus with Brexit.

She was all about everything not Brexit and her life was snuffed out by a person with all the same motivations and hate that most of those voting for Brexit hold.

Pro sane gun safety legislation supporters mobilize. If you are a parent of, a child of, or if you are a rational NRA member please help our nation to come to grips with the epidemic of gun deaths tearing so many families apart and giving bigots and haters foundation to intimidate and even murder fellow citizens. Surely, there are many members of the NRA who would support rational constitutional gun control reforms.

This ought to be a political issue that ranks up there with liberalizing marijuana laws, and immigration. Go home and make sure fellow citizens who agree with you, get registered and GOTV come November.

FREE SPEECH: Just because you are a member of Congress your right to free speech should not

be denied. AND the inaction of the Ryan Congress on taking a vote on any gun control legislation is denying the free speech of 90% of the people they represent.

Decorum? How about "You Lie!"...who worried about decorum then?
