    You could be on to something, it never occurred to me to coincide the announcement with shitty weather to keep the protesters to a minimum.

    no doubt wilson will be given money to help with his new start in life.

    I think the decision has already been made but they’re afraid to release it. As well they should be.

    imho officer wilson will be cleared of all charges. However someone needs to answer why Michael Brown’s body was left to lie in the street for hours like a piece of trash after his death. If there isn’t a law for that then there should be. There is no excuse for this lack of respect.

  • I’ve seen that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Chuck Schumer, my former sen. Evan Bayh, Joe Mandchin, and a handful of other bootlickers have been on from time to time. I also don’t consider these people Democrats.

    I guess MSNBC is supposed to represent the liberal media and they’re terribly disappointing at times. I love Amy Goodman but have never seen her have a guest of the congresssional variety on her program. I would imagine it’s because they don’t want to answer any questions that are not softballs.

  • Yea, I quit watching the Sunday morning news shows for that very reason. Are there any Dems left unneutered and not paid to take a dive? Some have pretty words but I fell for pretty words before.

    Sure would be a shame to see a billionaire (maybe a Walton) behind bars. But that’s not the American way, just punish the poor.

  • Sorry. Your comment wasn’t up yet when I started typing.

  • The right says they’re against (hate) undocumented workers because they broke the law by coming here. But I never hear anyone wanting to put the employers that hire them in jail. They also broke the law.

  • I didn’t watch the speech because I can’t stand the sight of the man. But what does “pay their fair share of taxes” mean? Suppose someone has been working illegally for 20 years, do they have to cough up taxes for 20 years. If so that seems rather punitive.
    This could turn into a real shitstorm, what with the GOP, and hell democrats too, loving their cheap labor (below minimum wage). No workers rights, benefits, basically slave labor. The MOTU don’t want any part of this, the status quo works quite nicely for them.

    Yup. How many tests do we get ‘cuz there’s an ongoing drought in California and the southwest? I guess Ebola could be considered pestilence. Bet the locusts are on their way.

    If you happened to catch the 60 minutes piece Sunday on the California drought, that’s pretty scary.

    Glad the Keystone pipeline failed yesterday, but I know it’s a matter of time.

    faux news will have a field day with this, I can hear it all now. “Where’s all this global warming the liberals are always screaming about?”

    groan, scream, or throw something. pick one or all 3 if you’re so inclined.

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family on the devastating loss of your father. He sounds like an amazing man that raised an amazing son.

    If possible, how about asking the 85 year old woman what she wants. Maybe she’s had enough and is ready to die. I know I don’t care to be helpless, incontinent, and suffering from dementia. imho I think physician assissted suicide should be an option in the u.s., but the Bible pounders (and medical and [...]

    When Obama named his cabinet and chief of staff (mostly Clinton retreads), I knew I’d been had. Over the course of the past 6 years I’ve become jaded enough to not bother to vote in last weeks election. The first time since 72. Until someone offers something besides pretty words I don’t intend to vote [...]

    Not a problem. With the privatization of prisons, many of the rich already own the prisons and have the framework to start many more, (of course with some sort of government subsidy.)
    The elite have gated communities, alarm systems, guards, dogs, whatever protection they can buy. Poor and middleclass communities will bear the brunt of robberies.

    “How much will taxes have to go up……”
    Not a red cent. The rich must never, never, never have to pay more taxes. No one else has anything left to tax. Who the hell cares if people suffer? This is the way life is in third world America.
    Remember Katrina.

    Spot on on everything, excellent work. I can think of nothing to add other than a word of advice. I used to get a boatload of those letters pleading for money via general mail. I solved this problem by loading up the enclosed envelope with all the junk mail I could find and returned it. [...]

    Willfull ignorance must be a wonderful thing. If his only regret is the formation of ISIS, then his family may want to consider him be tested for Alzheimer’s. Musta been quite a hard hitting interview.

    A Bush-Clinton contest sounds about as exciting as counting grains of salt.

    My personal preference for the mayor and city commissioners would be for them to be used in some type of medical research. The more inhumane, the better. I wonder if the good mayor and his fellow starvers of the homeless sit in the front pew on Sunday morning. I concur with the Rev. Wright – [...]
