Posted in: U.S. Navy says limpet mine in Japanese tanker attack bears Iran hallmarks See in context

Look at all the wars started on false premises. Japan's war against China. America's bombing of North Vietnam. America's invasion of Iraq.

Iran would have absolutely nothing to gain from planting mines on tankers. Israel, Saudi, UAE, and John Bolton, on the other hand . . .

I don’t it’s just liberals keep getting twisted in their own political world, I aim to burst that bubble of trance.

More irrelevant and meaningless babble. The house of Trump is built on this.

Entitlements, so take your pick....

Do those include payouts to farmers who are hurt by Trump’s trade wars? Oversized tax cuts to the uber wealthy? Use of Air Force One for Trump to play golf at his own resorts, at taxpayer expense?

Trump blames Iran for reneging on a deal that Trump pulled out of. Let that sink in for a minute.

Oh boy, the American Left is going to go full on anti-Semite over this.

What nonsense.

A clear majority of American Jews are on “the left”. They wouldn’t be there if the left were anti-Semitic.

Netanyahu knows Trump’s weak spot: his constant need for ego-stroking. Seems to be working.

Same as usual. Trump’s #1 concern is himself.

On the other hand, I can understand how it must sting to be thought of as so incompetent that you are not briefed about national security matters.

Poor Donald . . .

No, it’s an opinion, because I don’t think so, but you do, we just happen to disagree with each other.

Yup. Civil society, democratic governance, science, technology, education. All built on nothing but opinions. There is no objective truth. Interesting to see conservatism in America follow an extreme version of the moral relativism that it used to decry.

I want him to be the wrecking ball of PC.

PC? You mean common decency.

I don't know how calling the mayor of London a "stone-cold loser" and re-tweeting racist dog whistles is combatting "PC".

Maybe you can explain that to us.

I just don't see what Iran would gain by doing this.

On the other hand we've got Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince MBS, UAE Crown Prince MBZ, and John Bolton all itching for a reason to attack Iran.

In any case, none of this would have happened if Trump hadn't walked away from the nuclear accord.

Oh, please! World leaders constantly criticize Trump, but he has to shut up and take it?

Doesn't matter who started it,

Sounds consistent to me.

The US is a representative democracy/republic, not a direct democracy, if you meant the latter.

Ergo, rigging the electoral system is fine and dandy.

Posted in: U.S. House panel backs citing two Trump officials with contempt over census See in context

This whole thing stinks. It's a clear plan to suppress minority responses to the census in order to increase white Republican representation. Hofeller. Kobach. Bannon. You think these guys were ever concerned about protecting the voting rights act?

The sad thing is that the conservative majority on the Supreme Court will likely uphold the Commerce Department's move.

Posted in: House Democrats to get more Mueller evidence; Trump calls witness 'sleazebag' See in context

a "sleazebag attorney." 

I suspect Trump uses that term because of Dean's eventual testifying against Nixon, not because of Dean's involvement in the Watergate scandal itself.

Why didn’t they inform the public the Russians were trying to influence our elections unless....ohhhh....

Another thing you may have forgotten is how Mitch McConnell blocked the release of a bipartisan statement on Russian meddling in September of 2016, questioning the validity of the intelligence and claiming such a statement would be an act of partisan politics.

BTW, how about you finish your sentence. I don't know what "unless....ohhhh" means.

Posted in: Putin says U.S. unilateralism hurts global trade, sows chaos See in context

why didn’t the last administration do anything back in 2014 about it? Why didn’t they inform the public the Russians were trying to influence our elections unless....ohhhh....

That's already been answered. The Obama administration didn't want to appear to be putting a thumb on the scale.

As for why the Trump administration is doing nothing about future manipulations of US elections, and even downplaying such dangers, is a more relevant question.

Bottom line. They don't care if their man obstructed justice, as long as their team wins. Pathetic.

But Mattis is not the most powerful man in the world. So his opinion is just that, an opinion.

I would say that the Defense Secretary's observations are more than "just opinion". Trump's ignorance is a security issue.

@bass

The op-ed you linked to offers this nugget of "wisdom":

Over the past 50 years, more than $16 trillion has been spent on poverty programs. The majority of those programs have simply made poverty more comfortable by giving poor people more food, health care, housing, etc.

So bass is suggesting that Chicago suffers from high rates of homicide because black people have been coddled by the liberal government and are so comfortable being poor that they want to kill each other. Makes a lot of sense.

The op-ed suggests that

The only people who can fix these problems are black people themselves.

Wow. Thanks for the specifics.

their failed policies which undermines and is highly racial, unfair and creates more disparities among Blacks. 

For example?

Posted in: Japan business lobby urges sales tax hike to proceed as planned See in context

they don't want to shoulder any more of the social security expenses by having their corporate-tax cut rescinded. They want the job of funding it to be shifted to the general population as much as possible.

Well said. Kudos!

Companies have used almost nothing of their windfall from the corporate tax cut to boost wages/salaries. They pocket the cash, stiff their workers, and then demand that the public fork out more for the pension system.

And then the government pumps the revenue from the sales tax hike into pork barrel projects to "offset" the negative impact on consumption.

Scam.
