White House Indicates Greta Thunberg Is Fair Game Because She’s An ‘Activist'
No foreigner has any right to say anything about the USA and should be excoriated for even trying.
Trump should throw her in a cage like other chdren, though he probably wants to grab her by the.....
Plus she is a child, so she is easy: Trump only likes to punch down

Man Accused of Smacking Reporter’s Rear on Live TV Is Charged
If it had been the other way around: if she slapped him in the rear, would there be such a hoorah?

Democratic Candidates May Skip Presidential Debate Over Labor Dispute
The candidates seem to assume the union is right and the employers are wrong. Do any of them know what the dispute is? Certainly this article won't tell us. Indeed, trying to find out what the strike is about seems impossible. Everyone covers the candidates reaction but no one covers the dispute itself. As a retried journalism teacher this almost brings me to tears: what is the Union asking, what is Sodexo position? who cares?

 Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump
It’s not fair that I’m being Impeached when I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong! The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have become the Party of Hate. They are so bad for our Country!
James Lange  @langej  Replying to @realDonaldTrump
Whine, Whine.
Whine, Whine, Whine.
Whine, Whine, Whine, Whine.
Whine, Whine, Whine, Whine, Whine.

Did you see the sexist home depot ad, where a woman buys her man a tool kit.
I mean that is really, really sexist.

Wednesday, 11 December 2019

Well that’s what the TORY party stands for: Truth is what we say it is, and you had better get with the program.
Fact checking should be made illegal. PS: If you disagree with my made up version of the facts, you are evil and should not be a citizen of our country.

Biden's ad showing leaders laughing at Trump will air on television
Well of course the world is laughing at him:  he's a very odd man.  The Republicans don't care.
Justin Timberlake Apologises For ‘Strong Lapse Of Judgement’ After Holding Hands With Co-Star
Well, that is certainly sexual assault. But who was the guilty party?

After Pensacola Shooting, Pentagon Restricts Training for Saudi Military Students
Typical and expected bolting of the barn door after the horses have been stolen.

Canada's Racial Gap On Income, Wealth Isn't Getting Any Better: Study
Raciallzed and non racialized? Who are you kidding? But the solution is clear: fire a bunch of people of colour and the gap will close

Trump’s Strongest Allies In Congress Don’t Care How History Will Remember Them
Jordan, Barr and the like will not be remembered, period: whether as treasonous poodles or as people who drank the Koolaid

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Just received a briefing on the horrific shootout that took place in Jersey City, NJ. Our thoughts & prayers are w/ the victims & their families during this very difficult & tragic time. We will continue to monitor the situation as we assist local & state officials on the ground.
 James Lange   @langej
Your thought and prayers are useless. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

 Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump
America’s great USMCA Trade Bill is looking good. It will be the best and most important trade deal ever made by the USA. Good for everybody - Farmers, Manufacturers, Energy, Unions - tremendous support. Importantly, we will finally end our Country’s worst Trade Deal, NAFTA.
 James Lange  @langej
Yes, well done: 90% the same as NAFTA, with some few changes that took both Democrats and Republicans to get done.
But it is nice that you can now take credit for Bush Seniors' great trade deal.

Jewish groups denounce Trump's 'vile' remarks at Israeli-American Council
When they came for the communists, I said "I am not a Communist.
When they came for the gay, I said "I am not gay"
When they came for the socialists, I said "I am not a socialist.
When they came for the mentally ill,"I said "I am sane."
When they came for the liberals, I said "I am conservative."
When they came for the Jews, there was no one left to defend me.
    It couldn't happen here, could it?

  Donald J. Trump   @realDonaldTrump     Witch Hunt!
 James Lange  @langej   Replying to @realDonaldTrump

I think you mean "Warlock Hunt" unless you are transgender.

 Donald J. Trump   @realDonaldTrump
“No president in American history has been treated like this.”
James Lange @langej  Replying to @realDonaldTrump and @marklevinshow

Whine, whine, whine.   If you can;t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,

For Trump, Instinct After Florida Killings Is Simple: Protect Saudis
Seems like a reasonable thing to do, unless you think the Saudi's planned this?
But Donnie Trump said that they all would be compensated just as the those killed by the Saudi pilot are.

My only take-away was "where were the liberal democrats?"

What Does This Country Demand of Black Women in Politics?
That they represent all of their constituents equally.

Two New Drugs Help Relieve Sickle-Cell Disease. But Who Will Pay?
Who benefits?   
And Gina Costa asks: "What amount should drug companies make on these drugs?"
Well, you are the journalist, Gina: what money do they make?

Trump heads to court in fight over emoluments
Truman said the office is NOT for sale. 
Donnie disagrees: he likes that the presidency can make him money, while giving him cheap golf trips.

North Dakota county debating becoming first to bar new refugees
Yes, North Dakota, because when someone is down, that's the time to kick them.

Is This Really The Most Racist Bunch Of Election Candidates Ever?
If you are pro-Israeli, you are Islamophobic, if you are pro-Palestinian you are anti-Semitic. Lose-Lose situation.
But it is interesting to have journo's who don't want to us to unite, encouraging anomie, apathy and making the UK a worse place too live.

Michael Bloomberg Criticized For Calling Cory Booker ‘Well-Spoken
It is not nice or cool to be well spoken. If you are well spoken, that must mean you are an uncle tom.
If he said Corey couldn't string two words together, that would be okay in modern political rhetoric?

Jury Says Elon Musk Did Not Defame British Diver With “Pedo Guy” Insult
"Pedo guy" does not say pedophile and no one in his right mind would say that it did.
This is like the guy who had to resign because he said his budget was niggardly.
