Religion does not invite inquiry.

They know how to play Americans like a cheap fiddle. Thanks, good thoughts.

Sordid dealings with the money changers on the Sabbath?

Standard GOP exceptionalism.

The corporate religious right is funded every Sunday morning from thousands of collection plates.

No one bothered to search him?

Article said they found drugs and drug paraphernalia in his room prior to bringing him in.

Sad. More families suffering tonight from gun violence.

Best wishes, California from the Ohio River Coastline

May all your wildfires be instantly extinguished,

May you droughts be plentifully relieved, and

May all your Republicans go to sea and never come back!

Please stay safe - from our family to yours!

Are you quoting Dole, Reagan, Bush, or Scalise?

I think the fancy phrase for that is psychological projection.

On a massive scale....and bigly too.

Absolutely.

But, it would add extra sting for people who get caught with it, such as the guy last week stopped with a trunk full of guns and ammo.

From my personal viewpoint, the public shouldn't be allowed to buy and own large quantities of ammo. It qualifies as a hazardous material. Sufficient quantities to protect yourself from robbers and go hunting typically would not be considered a danger when properly stored.

That's my view, although highly controversial.

You summed it up quite wisely.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if every citizen around the globe could pitch in 10 bucks for PR? That's about what it would take just to pay off their debt ($72 billion) and start from scratch! Another 10 bucks might rebuild it like new.

That existing debt come to around $21,000 per Puerto Rican citizen (population= 3.4 million), and they have a pre-storm unemployment rate of over 12%.

Another way to see it is if every US citizen pitched in around $220, that would also pay off the debt for a fresh start. Good luck with that, LOL. Add some more to that if we want to help them rebuild.

And, that's not even including paying for the disasters in Texas, Florida, Louisiana, and now some in Mississippi and Alabama.

It's a big, disgraceful mess.

Skittles, I think it's intentional distraction.

A normal prez would tell us the truth about what's going on in PR and have his subordinates provide accurate periodic progress updates to the public - say for water and food, infrastructure, etc. Instead, we're seeing not much more than his tweets in the news which are mean, cruel and mostly lies. As you know, this guy ain't normal. It's like trying to listen to opera with a jackhammer in the room.

I've believed all along that tRump does not orchestrate these responses, but instead has a group of very sharp and coordinated minders that design his responses for maximum confusion, distraction and anger in his opposition (that would be us) and the press, as well as feed red meat to his base.

Therefore, we're constantly distracted from the truth of what's really going on there.

For some relief form his bullshit, here's a link to a guy that really does know the story. His father is in one of the worst-hit areas: https://twitter.com/NelsonMRosario
