What I really want to see is for Walmart to drop Hannity.

Then, let's see how many are faithful to their boycott silliness.

I'll bet they never asked if Obama was crazy.

Our diplomats can just tell Kim's people to pretend tRump is a 10-year old billionaire's kid that's never ventured outside the penthouse.

International Con-fusion.

Headline: Trump believes Putin on Russia meddling, but then backs US agencies

Donald Trump said on Saturday he believes Vladmir Putin’s denials of Russian involvement in the manipulation of the 2016 presidential election. However, he appeared to contradict himself on Sunday when he said he was “with our agencies” on the question of Russian interference.
“As to whether I believe it or not, I’m with our agencies, especially as currently constituted,” Trump told a news conference in Vietnam. “As currently led, by fine people, I believe very much in our intelligence agencies.”

The president’s comments were criticised by senator John McCain who said in a tweet that there was “nothing America First about taking the word of KGB colonel [Putin]” over the US intelligence community.

Trump was also quickly countered by his own CIA chief, Mike Pompeo. A statement issued by the agency said: “The director stands by and has always stood by the January 2017 intelligence community assessment entitled: Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections. The intelligence assessment with regard to Russian election meddling has not changed.”

On Saturday Trump also launched a tirade against special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and the Kremlin. The investigation could cost “millions and millions of lives”, Trump claimed, by hindering agreement with Moscow over conflicts in Syria and Ukraine and a looming confrontation with North Korea.

I can just see all his minder's heads spinning in unison.

A person with an authoritative bent....

cannot stand the though of dealing with anyone that will stand equal and eye-to-eye to them. Therefore, such men will not entertain the idea of marrying or even dating ladies that are experienced in life because they know they will not be able to control these women.

This also fits well into the typical conservative personality mold of hierarchy going from god to preacher to husband and then down to wife. This type of personality also knows they can take a younger person and indoctrinate them to be obedient to their doctrines (religious, social, moral, political, etc.).

Huckabuck and Duggabuck.

Two shyster peas in a pod.....

FirstLight, that's why I get my news from overseas.

Like you, I can't stand the sight or sound of tRump, so for a long time I've been going to the BBC and Guardian in the UK for my coffee-time news. There are some good Canadian, French and German sites, too.

Their editorial content is excellent and the travel sections always have some soothing and interesting reads.

For a refreshing break, see:

Good luck, and you have plenty of company here with that same problem.

Yes, and her mental health!

Tobin, I agree that we all need to stop hanging labels....

...of our choice on any of our fellow man. What moral right do I have to publicly hang the label of "stupid" on a man or woman I don't even know, and certainly have not walked a few miles in their shoes?

Absolutely none.

Let's all remember - the world is watching us.

Thanks, Sunlei for pointing out those additional factors.

That Watson Report is making for interesting, informative reading.

I recall some wise heads estimating our total cost of the Iraq war at around $3T toward the (semi-)end of that conflict and most talking heads thought it was crazy.

These reports also do not - and probably cannot - factor in psychological costs, either to people in those war zones or in the USA. Nor does it include long-term costs to those economies due to loss of human capital, or the "what could have been".

There's also no accounting for loss of culture and community - two of the most important factors to peaceful human existence.

Yes. We're going to be facing some very serious mental health challenges.

As more people realize they've been hoodwinked, they will face serious fear, depression and anxiety problems. We can only hope they seek help and don't resort to violence - domestic or public.

Many I fear, will learn the heard way that keeping their minds occupied in the right-wing propaganda bubble will not help with these very serious mental issues.

Even worse news is that the Repug congress critters will be reducing access to affordable mental health care.
