    James O'Stink is in town.

    Orange powder all over his face from playing his favorite game of kissee, kissee, Trump butt.

    Soap, water and common decency will keep O'Stink at Bay.

    And, of course, stay upwind.

    O'Stink stinks.

    Still waiting for a T***p true believer to tell us how you justify the U.S. Dept. of Commerce working hard to save 70,000 Chinese jobs. 

    I appreciate the information from Dio, but that isn't what I seek….and I don't think he voted for T***p.

    I want to hear how you continue to support a man(?) who will betray anyone, lie about anything, displays no compassion or intellect, and is destroying America so that he can give it to his family and friends. A man who would plunge the world into war to spite his predecessor.

    Our Commerce Dept. is now instructed to help rebuild a company which violated sanctions against our enemies..really?

    C'mon you chickenshits…defend this fucker. How do you continue to support a dog that bites the hand that feeds him? Is it because he lets you hate with impunity? Is that it? Is it because he is raiding the national treasury and giving it to the rich?

    Mike Pompeo, when asked what would North Korea get from the U.S. in a deal, responded with, "Americas' finest…our entrepeneurs…our capital managers" or words to that effect.  Is this what we have become? A country obsessed with the acquisition of wealth?

    John Kelly is a xenophobe who implied that the uneducated or under educated should not be allowed to immigrate to this country. Really? I guess this country is only for the best and brightest? Then should we start to deport or eliminate all of the marginally or uneducated who are already here while we give visas to wealthy Chinese  families who buy condos from the T***p families?

    How far does this selective elitism go?

    Over here in bright red MAGA country, we are treated every day to more than one obnoxious pickup driver with large flags on poles mounted on their trucks. The sad part is they see no contradiction in flying the confederate battle flag alongside the Stars and Stripes…

    They see no contradiction in their support for a President who sells them out, but continues to con them into thinking he has their best interests at heart.

    "Give us your tanned, rested, and greedy…yearning to get rich….others need not apply."

      Thank you for your thoughts. I've wondered the same and your comment that "he lets them hate with impunity" captures a lot. I would add that many of his followers have been let down so often that they want to see him stick it to the man, even if they get caught in the crossfire. How much worst can it get for me, anyway? They are about to find out.

      Making China (it's pronounced Ji-na) great again!

    For those interested in the fate of the Denver Post (and other newspapers owned by Alden Capital), the Colorado Independent will livestream on Facebook a very important discussion tonight at the Denver Press Club.  Mike Littwin will moderate the meeting tonight starting at 6:30pm.

    The topic is 

    How to save the Denver Post

     · Hosted by Colorado Media Alliance


    While there is no more room for those wishing to attend in person tonight, there will be a second session on Thursday for which there might be free tickets still available.

    Now we know the going rate to buy Trump's favor:

    A mere 72 hours after the Chinese government agreed to put a half-billion dollars into an Indonesian project that will personally enrich Donald Trump, the president ordered a bailout for a Chinese-government-owned cellphone maker.

    “President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast,” Trump announced on Twitter Sunday morning. “Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!”

    Trump did not mention in that tweet or its follow-ups that on Thursday, the developer of a theme park resort outside of Jakarta had signed a deal to receive as much as $500 million in Chinese government loans, as well as another $500 million from Chinese banks, according to Agence France-Presse. Trump’s family business, the Trump Organization, has a deal to license the Trump name to the resort, which includes a golf course and hotels.

    Hey, anybody see a bunch of grenade launchers that dropped off of an Air Force truck in North Dakota?

    No, really.

    They're offering a $5,000 reward. Tell me about how Republicans are keeping us safe again?

    A friend commented that Minot, ND has a terrible record of safety around its nuclear missile collection. They let a B52 go zooming around the country “accidentally”……http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/10/19/AR2007101901590_pf.html

    It's not the grenade launchers that are missing, but a box of the grenades themselves.

    Look for an NRA member with a shit-eating grin and a MAGA  hat.

    • Diogenesdemar says:

      He’s already got the launcher, or four, no doubt . . . 

      . . . don’t scoff, lot’s of good people North Dakok-ter-an-ists (?) find that they’re the perfect tool for coyotes ice fishing.
