Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

@LoveBC,

I'm curious to see where this investigation of the Rich murder leads. Guy leaks thousands of DNC emails to Wikileaks and ends up shot by two men who make no attempt to rob him?

It's something straight out of a Clancy novel. I hope it's not something that can be swept under the rug. I also hope something leaks to help identify who made the call to end this man's life.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Imagine if Comey were instrumental in bringing down both Clinton and Trump. Saved by bureaucracy?

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Lot of tit for tat. The former FBI director was right to investigate both the Clinton and Trump camps. They are all self centered game players.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Who actually pays attention to, or believes anything "Lil Stevie the Boot-Licker" does or says anymore?

"Lil Stevie" is nothing more than a bought-and-paid-for lap dummy of the D.C. Uniparty who pull his strings to make his mouth move and spew lies, innuendos and lunacy.

In case anyone missed it, over the past several years "Lil Stevie" and his party have become irrelevant and powerless in D.C. In fact, I'd add laughable, too.

Re: “Reinventing the Wheel

I don't understand the negativity about Robert's Rules of Order. They have worked very well since propounded in 1876. Was there really a tangle of quote faux parliamentary rules close quote? Or was it just that someone was to a disciplined and or lazy to do the job well?

Re: “Reinventing the Wheel

LoveBC,
Never underestimate the powers of corruption in the ole USA. If the Democrats are needed in their present form to fill out the shell game with the Republicans, then they will be funded forever (or thereabouts).
The Dems success these past 80 years have been the result of their usurpation of the old Democratic Socialist agenda which is why Sanders had such success. And as much as it may pain them, the Dems must realize the middle and working classes have more votes than all the crippled bisexual illegal immigrants of color put together, even if you throw in Milos and Caitlyn Jenner once their pre existing conditions require health care.

So where can one find the boundary definitions for the "particular territories identified in the comprehensive deannexation plan" ???

Re: “Reinventing the Wheel

Excellent points Oak, and may I add that democratic party, especially in this neck of the woods has shot itself in the foot by disrespecting the working/middle class, especially the white working class, or what used to be the core of the democratic party. I hear more concern about the poor, misunderstood criminals from Shelby democrats that the trials and tribulations of working and middleclass people.

I do not put all the blame on Shelby democrats. They have been forsaken by the US democratic party, and their representatives. Steve Cohen has his secure US District 9 seat for life, yet I see him doing little to help out local democrats aside from some occasional lip service.

If the dems do not get back the working/middle class voters back, they will eventually go the way of the Whigs.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

You're right AP. It's no different than how the conservative media handled Whitewater, Benghazi, the Clinton emails, you name it.

Sometimes the politically slanted press will end up right about scandals. Sometimes the evidence won't be there, but hey, it provides the media some good fodder for a while either way.

I still make sure to read equal doses of Fox and CNN though, because I want to make sure I try to get both directions of the spin cycle, so that I end up somewhere back near the middle, and hopefully somewhere closer to the truth in the end.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Well, Pop, you can sit back and wait for it to unfold. But I'm thankful for the media right now. I would prefer we didn't have to hear about chump's shenanigans all day, every day. But as long as we have an idiot in the White House, I'm going to be paying very close attention to the speculation.

Re: “Reinventing the Wheel

All I'm going to say here, is that it's nice to see a bunch of local people trying to get an effective Democratic Party organization rebuilt. In order for democracy (little D) to work, you have to have a selection of qualified leaders to choose from at election time. Without a local party that has some depth and breadth to it, you can't get those kind of people to run. And the failure to field qualified leaders will make it impossible to compete with the dominant Republicans for state and local offices..

As a moderate, I like the idea of more choice. Good on you all for doing this!

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

APop,
I thought you were referring to the op-ed pieces concerning Nixon.
Oh yeah, the Clintons were guilty, fat lot of good it did us.
As for selective memory, I have no control over my memory as I recall.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

@CL

I was taking about persuasive power.

But you have a selective memory, my dear sir.

Go back to the Whitewater investigation and read some of the op-eds published by the conservative press. That investigation took years over schedule and was expanded into areas far removed from the original purpose. Led by the redoubtable Ken Starr, what started off as an investigation into real estate dealings morphed into an investigation into Bill Clinton's affair with Ms Lewinsky, and even into the death of a White House aide. The conservative press ate it up. I can remember reading, in an editorial, that the crooked real estate dealings were small potatoes; The Clinton's were actually guilty of Murder! Murder no less. Allegations made with no proof at all. In fact, the Clintons were never prosecuted because of that lack of proof. Yet, reputations were tarnished, rights were trampled in the process.

Like I said, I have seen all this before. Extremely sad the Press, who could act as the grownups in the room since Congress will not, just urge it on instead of restoring reason.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

APop,
And yet all the bullshit op-eds, were right.
And since the spineless bastards in Congress will to only react to being given money or to the loss of votes, an outraged, if not totally t-crossed and i-dotted public, will push the investigation.
