That guitarist, Marcus Eaton, is a regular feature at our local music pub in Bacharach, Germany on the Rhine. Seen him there a couple of times already.

I block all the political crap that comes down over FB, for me, the site is for friends and family and where they are hanging and what they had for lunch, etc…

I don’t see a lot of that and I keep out of the political discussions as they quickly turn into shouting matches. The Fox News posters get blocked permanently.

This mid-term election feels like a presidential election because it’s a referendum on Donald Trump. It may be America’s last chance to turn away from his politics of right wing bigotry and atavism.

It has to remind us all that he lost the popular vote and that a majority of Americans are now against him, his policies and his personnel choices.

He’s going racist because that’s the only thing the GOP base responds to anymore. Think of any topic that the media insists is important…and the GOP have wrapped it around hatred of “illegals.”

Jobs? “Illegals” are taking them.

Economy? “Illegals” are dragging down wages and taking money out of the economy to send to Mexico.

Crime? “Illegals” are killin’ and rapin’ nonstop.

Healthcare? “Illegals” are clogging up the system and driving up costs by not having insurance.

Infrastructure? “Illegals” will just take all the jobs that are created.

Hatred of brown people from foreign locales has become a one-stop shop for the GOP.

Problem is, the Democrats need a 55/45 vote overall to break even. They got 52/48 last time, which adds up to a huge Republican Majority in the House. That 7%-lead poll has me worried (more)….

Remember that no matter what happens on Tuesday the Republicans won’t have to wait one hour to go back to screwing the country. The Dems will have to wait until next year to do anything. Expect the GOP to get more extreme if they lose and go full Nazi if they win.

Yep. Times a thousand. And he’s a voice who tries to make something bad good.
It’s called humor. The shield many a tortured damaged soul can tap into.
Pete is my imaginary friend who is not imaginary but real because YOU can see and hear him.
Pete is damaged, as we all are, and he will let you see it with a laugh.

re: #56 jaunte

There’s been a long standing notion that the words of a President have weight and hold merit and the media should report on them as such.

That won’t fly with Trump because he spews so much bullshit. Almost every single fucking thing he says is a lie or a gross distortion of the truth.

And the media won’t call him on it for three reasons:

1) They fail to comprehend how abnormal and bizzare this Presidency is.
2) They don’t want to lose their precious access.
3) They need the clicks/viewers/followers

News departments are just another corporate division that needs to turn a profit. The first three Estates have corrupted and defanged the Fourth.

This is a hell of an article: Hidden Motives behind Key GOP Leaders’ Cooperation with Trump & Russia: An Evidence-based Examination of Irrational Behaviors & the Republican Congress Members Who Exhibit Them

The next logical step is to question whether the GOP’s seemingly self-destructive behavior stems from non-policy concerns that have yet to be discovered. This line of thinking naturally leads us to one glaring vulnerability within the Republican party that may shed some light on their conduct. Although former Republican National Conference (RNC) chairman, Reince Priebus, repeatedly denied that the RNC emails were violated, it has been established by the FBI that the Russians successfully hacked the RNC’s emails, possibly exposing weaknesses within the Republican leadership. In fact, it appears that the Russians now possess approximately ten years’ worth of GOP emails, through 2015, when SmarTech, an email and web-hosting firm, stopped hosting the Republican Party’s email accounts. (Tom Del Beccaro, the ex-chairman of the California Republican Party, reported to The Smoking Gun that SmarTech has “admitted being hacked.”) Andy Greenberg, a cyber security and “hacker culture” expert at Wired Magazine, identifies a possible underlying link to a non-policy agenda in his astute observation: “What’s still not clear, of course, is what the RNC’s stolen emails might contain. But the group would be wise to review its older servers for potential scandals. The election may have passed without an RNC leak, but Russia’s intelligence agencies could still be holding onto a few secrets of America’s ruling party.”

Lots more at the link.
