      I remembered George Clooney explained once why he doesn’t have a twitter account – and found the quote from 2014 in Variety:

      Clooney, who has written all his scripts by hand, said he’ll never join the social networking platform. “Just because, I like to have a drink at night,” Clooney told Variety during a lengthy interview at his Studio City home. “I could easily say something stupid, and I also don’t think you need to be that available. I don’t see Matt [Damon] or Brad [Pitt] or myself wanting to get our thoughts out in a 140-character-thing at 3 in the morning.”

    Thank you Nerdy for keeping this wonderful place open. I don’t comment often any more, but read every day. I find that the wonderful people here usually express what I am thinking and feeling.
    One political note, here in Oklahoma we have a governor’s race. I am hopeful that Drew Edmondson, the Democrat will win. He is compassionate and knowledgeable. The other candidate is a cheater and habitual conman, in the mold of you know who. For a long time the polls were definitely Republican. Now, we are rated as a tossup. That is encouraging. Kevin Stitt, the Republican was against the education bill and teacher raises, said he would not have signed the bill. His only ads are screaming that Edmondson supported Hillary and is in line with Nancy Pelosi. Nothing positive at all…he has no plans, no understanding of government. Another failed businessman who thinks he knows everything.

    More than half a century ago, when four young girls were killed in a Birmingham church by a racist’s bomb, Dr. King told us that those little girls “have something to say to every politician who has fed his constituents with the stale bread of hatred and the spoiled meat of racism…. They say to us that we must be concerned not merely about who murdered them, but about the system, the way of life, the philosophy which produced the murderer.”

  14. October 29, 2018 at 10:18 am

    But this wishful thinking overlooks the central fact about Donald Trump’s approach to politics: His grip on power depends entirely on splitting the nation in two. Angry division — rooted in race, gender, immigration-status, religion and ideology — allowed Trump to become president. Absent a politics of us-versus-them, Trumpism makes no sense at all.

    This explains why Trump, after a rote declaration Wednesday that “we have to unify,” quickly resumed his patented attacks on the media.

    But many in the MSM do not seem to grasp this//

    Last Tuesday: Trump: “was slated for more than nine hours of “Executive Time” (not) a euphemism for the unstructured time Trump spends tweeting, phoning friends and watching television. Official meetings, policy briefings and public appearances — traditionally the daily work of being president — consumed just over three hours of his day.” (politico). (And fyi that part of his day started at 1pm.)

    Hello the Dicktraitor openly allows China and Russia to listen in on his personal phone calls.
    Speculate for a moment how his little mind views this. Is he following orders? Does he think it makes him look LESS treasonous if he’s not picking the phone to talk to Russia and China directly? What is the threat from the Kremlin if he doesn’t let them listen in? This isn’t tiddlywinks. wtf is he doing? Normalizing it. How are we in this position? Hypnosis? Lookit..this is front page news happening every single day.
    Gaaah!

      Exceprt from the beginning of article “Something in happening in Texas”

      The most intellectually robotic Democratic strategists—who invariably choose to play it safe rather than to try for the wins that might transform our politics—keep looking for ways to write off Texas US Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke as a Lone Star dream that could never come true. The same goes for the pundits who can’t see beyond fading calculations or snapshot polls.

      Because O’Rourke is running in Texas, a state where Democrats have been on a losing streak for the better part of a quarter-century, the naysayers just aren’t buying the prospect that an unapologetically progressive candidate could upend the reelection run of so wily and well-connected a Republican incumbent as Senator Ted Cruz. By traditional political measures, that’s understandable. If you are looking for easy and predictable wins, Texas is not going to rank high on any Democratic list. This is a state where Democrats have not won a Senate contest since Lloyd Bentsen was on the ballot in 1988.

      Yet O’Rourke heads into the final 10 days of the campaign with more money on hand than Cruz, and something rare for a Texas Democrat: the ability to hold his own in the many, many media markets of a large and politically expensive state.

      The real thief is the orange racist lying bafoon in the White House who would not be President if it was not for Russia and Voter Suppression. That racist bigot will never change, regardless how many people are murder or how many pipe bombs are sent to Democrats.

      Oh Trump is the effing THIEF…conspiring to sell America’s standing in the world to the highest bidder/despot.
      An American permanent resident with two children citizens is butchered by Saudi agents, and Trump shows us yet again the only thing that counts is his little me $elf. (Saudi Arabia “a great ally to me”.) Main comment – the incident was the ‘worst cover up’ ever like it was a mob reality show. So fervently has he kissed the line up of despotic arses: Jong Un’s arse: canceled U.S.A. military exercise with S. Korea and got zero in return while they went on w/their nuclear agenda. Putin Rosneft’s arse, or make me king of Little Russia. Now al Saud’s, bin Salman’s murderous arses. Tell me one saving grace, pls just one.

    Dear god. Trump’s tweet above endorses Bolsanaro who is also in favor of torture and white nationalism.
    From THINK: “Bolsonaro’s eulogies to the military dictatorship and its torturers tell us a bit more. Brazil’s “day that lasted 21 years” did not go far enough, in his mind: The dictatorship “should have killed 30,000 more,” he said in 1999, while serving his third term as a congressman. Within the military establishment, Bolsonaro represents an extremist tendency; former military-dictator Ernesto Geisel labeled him “completely beyond the pale” and a “military evil.”
    = Another far-right authoritarian for little baby russian Trump to lean on. Another neo-fascist arse for him to kiss.

    • October 29, 2018 at 12:46 pm

      Maybe Trump and his handlers have decided that his pre-election destruction is mostly done. All he’s to do now is sit on the gold-pated toilet and fire off accusatory misinformed (the Dodger’s coach and pitcher misunderstanding) tweets; call African American (D) candidates “thieves”; and continue building his global despot club. Oh and keep up on his Incite-To-Violence rallies.
      -All pretense at being president – not that he ever was – is 950% OVER.
      -Time to drag Trump off his perch.

    BOLSANARO:
    “”Brazil’s next president said in a 2017 speech that “four of his children are men,” and “then in a moment of weakness the fifth came out a girl.””
    …”he would never pay a woman “the same salary as a man” because they can get pregnant.”
    …””called a “”congresswoman and colleague not “worth raping” and “very ugly.””
    …””referred to immigrants as the “scum of the earth.””
    …“I would not be able to love a gay son, I would rather he die in an accident.”
    …“if I see two men kissing each other on the street, I’ll beat them up.”
    …””how he spent his housing allowance as a congressman: “Since I was a bachelor at the time, I used the money to have sex with people.””
    …”has threatened to withdraw Brazil from the Paris climate agreement.”
    …”“I am in favor of a dictatorship” and lamented the end of the country’s brutal military dictatorship in 1985.
    …”“I’m pro-torture, and the people are, too,” and threatened to purge political opponents.”” (Thinkprogress, Frank Dale)
    Has Trump’s got competition on vulgar, vile racist, mysogynist, homophobic, anti-environment, xenophobic, pro-fascist, far righty rhetoric? Guess he’ll have to try harder. Another like-minded Killer and Torturer. Dicktraitor today welcomed Bolsanaro on board the despot brigade + prolly sees dollars signs in Brazil.
