May be an indicator of his customary behavior in New York and other states.

Some deals in Illinois come to mind.

LOL, "Trump's Razor"

(snip)
Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo wrote an article about Trump’s suspected dimness, which spawned the term “Trump’s Razor” after “Occam’s Razor,” of which Netanyahu is fond. Whereas Occam’s Razor stipulates that where there are several possible explanations for something, the simplest one is usually correct, Trump’s Razor says that where there are several possible explanations for something Trump has said or done, the stupidest is always the right one. But even if we assume that Trump is far from stupid, and definitely not a “moron,” most people would agree that both his election and his presidency are an insult to America’s intelligence, as well as the world’s.

McConnell does not give a shit. He's a honey badger.

Watching Mitch's history, if he thought he did something in the Senate that brought one single job to his state, any amount of dirty money would be moral and justified. He took tons of tobacco money for many years.

We may never know....

unless the cops discover some solid things from his cell phone use, his computer, and any social media contacts. For a wealthy loner guy with a gambling addiction and gun fantasies, a real estate holder and landlord, and a former employee both in government and private business, one could list hundreds of possible motives.

I'm afraid if the conclusion is highly political, it will be kept hidden and we'll never know.

PWB, the shame is their voices are not being heard...

by the public. Just like millions of others in our society suffering in many ways, their voices are not heard loud enough to enrage the public.

As long as we continue to have compliant news media and allow big money from corporations, massive lobbying, and the mega-rich's funds into politics, I'm afraid nothing will change. We need to find ways to amplify those voices!

Peace be with you, Hamsterjill. There's far too many voices never heard.

Sorry to hear of your loss - walk with her memory every day! Lost my mom to colon cancer, even though she had good treatment at Vanderbilt. Hers was the aggressive kind unfortunately, that kept coming back.

We agree with you totally that there's no excuse for lack of proper care, as folks have in other civilized nations. We have a portion of our populace that don't give a damn about their fellow man - yet claim to be Christian. The best things we can do in your sister's memory is to donate to the Cancer Society and fight like hell to win back Congress.

One (of many) things that hurts very deeply for me is that Republican policies most often hurt those having the least-heard voices - the sick, the poor, the disabled, and our minorities. These simply are not good people in the GOP.

Batshit crazy psychopaths don't necessarily have a clear motive.

At least not one that would make any sense to you and I.

They are also very good at planning very complex, evil crimes without remorse.

Makes me wonder...

if that show was his first preference for some reason (maybe Obama).

I also wonder how he planned on transporting all those guns to Chicago. Maybe he get scared of getting caught on the way and scrapped that plan.

We may never know.

Great letter, jodymarie aimee

I like your phrase "a place for the identity hungry to fall into". Letters to the editor are a great way to keep our progressive candle burning bright.

Keep up the good work!

Lack of funds, I suspect.

The UN is already spread thin just trying to keep millions from starvation. Plus, wealthy Western right-wing governments are balking at increased funding. Instead, they want all of the world's social ills such as famine and disease outbreaks to be paid for by charities, not by governments.

I feel the public needs to be more aware of the UN's work and financial needs so they might pitch in. That's difficult in the US because of the Republican and RW media's constant demonizing of the UN for many years. There's a number of good charities around the globe that address this need, but many of those are struggling, too. IMO, governments around the world need to back away from wars and step up to the plate on basic social needs.
