    It’s kind of amazing that the President of the US is getting sued by a pornstar and it’s almost incidental.
    He's been known as a serial cheater/womanizer for literally decades ( and came close to bragging about it even back in the day). It's like someone coming out and saying they smoked blunts with Snoop Dogg. Folks are just like "And...?"

    My mom (you guys like her- she's not a Trump fan) is rather pissed off about the celebration of International Women's Day.

    She thinks the idea to celebrate Women's Day is good, but there's a history behind March 8 that makes it particularly awkward for her as someone who grew up in Estonia when it was occupied by the Soviet Union.

    March 8 was proposed a long time*ago by communists Rosa Luxemburg, Clara Zetkin, and Alexandra Kollontai, largely to honor women the role of the working women of St. Petersburg in the revolution. Lenin was the first world leader to declare this as a national holiday in 1922 as International Working Women's Day (there weren't women who didn't work in the Soviet Union). In Soviet occupied countries, it was not taken seriously, and much parodied.

    Voters will ignore that type of thing when the alternative is deemed worse policy-wise. Democrats voted for Bill Clinton back in '92 (as did I, FWIW) despite all of the stories circulating about him for the same reason.

    No, she isn't. She looks young, yes, and good for her for that. But she was born January 20, 1967.

    Former Assoc. Dir. of National Intelligence: "it was entirely possible votes were tampered with."

    After the last presidential election, I heard one expert after another reassure voters that the Russians could not have hacked voting machines or state vote tallying systems on a scale large enough to tip the presidential election…

    As much as we’d all like to believe such confident pronouncements, my experience in the intelligence world, where I served as Associate Director of National Intelligence, has lead me to one inescapable conclusion—the optimistic “experts” are probably wrong, and all of us should acknowledge that our unconscious (or not-so-unconscious) need to believe that our democracy can’t be subverted by foreigners, blinds us to powerful evidence to the contrary. And, after embracing this scary possibility, we should do a lot more to secure our voting systems than we are doing now…
    But Hillary is at fault for only winning by 3 million votes. We can't look for the other reasons we have the baboon in the WH.

    Sounds young to me (since I'm only a couple of years older ). Regardless of her views or age, I think Stacey Dash is sexy as all hell.

    Trump steel tariffs may leave these U.S. steelworkers jobless

    The U.S. steel industry employed about 147,000 people in 2015, according to the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic analysis. Manufacturers that need steel employ about 6.5 million people each year and the construction industry 6.3 million.
    Not unsurprising considering how little Trump understands Economics.

    I am shocked, SHOCKED, that finding the stupidest man in the world and making him King didn't work. I was so sure of this plan.

    This morning the AM Joy pundit asserted that the Stormy Affair wasn't going away as quickly as many other Trump-tasms.

    The implication of the post to which I responded was, "Only those mouth-breathing conservatives do things like this."

    I can and do condemn both actions, though I realize that the people burning Captain America comics aren't doing anything that prevents others from buying the items in question. In contrast to both the attempts to get Harry Potter books out of libraries (conservative) and to keep innocent young minds from being warped by comics (dat ole liberal debbil Wertham).
