    A corrupt person being given the power of the Attorney General should ruffle a few feathers, no?
    Yes, almost as much as giving a corrupt person the power of the presidency.

    I had a dream last night and in that dream I saw a vision of a (metaphorical) beast with one head and on that head was written all the nonsense posts by Edward Palamar.

    And a (metaphorical) Lion with the face of KellyJay and the feet of sonship, which were many and confused will a thousand toes on each, said unto me “divegeester, why is thou is not taking the words of the (metaphorical) beast called Edward with the face of KellyJay and the feet of sonship seriously?”

    I replied, but my words tuned into a food stuff similar to but not exactly the same as pink marzipan with those little round sugar beads embedded into it. And I was sore afraid of the vision because a believed it to be literal.

    But then a man walked up to me and said “oh divey one of much combativeness, be ye not vexed by the vision and relaxeth in thy spirit for the things which thou seeth, including the beast with one head with all the Edward Palamar posts who has the face of KellyJay and the feet of sonship, is a sign, it is not real; so be thou not a dick”.

    And I was grieved in my mind that I had been sore afraid of a sign and I pleaded with the man, who had (metaphorically) turned into a woman with shining hair and breasts of a dragon, “why does thou torment me?” And the woman who had now exploded in a rainbow and turned into a (metaphorical) pigeon with the face of whodey and the claws of an eagle, said unto me “it is not torment, it is love and perfect justice”.

    And then I awoke and I said to myself in the sternest of words “never again shall eat of the cheese which is past its sell by date”.

    Edward Palamar; can you interpret my dream too please?

    He is not fit to be AG, he is deeply involved in a fraud case ongoing as we speak, where he was asked to return money given to him by the fraudulent company he was employed by.
    He was also not vetted by the senate confirmation and has publicly stated many times his disdain of the Mueller probe which is exactly why Trump picked him.

    Now Trump doesn't even know him. Even though a month ago they were buddy buddy, a great guy.

    Now Trump is losing it, the indictments getting closer and closer in spite of his 'best' efforts to stop it.

    Blatant obstruction that doesn't take a rocket scientist to clearly see.

    Even the Justice department is against Whitaker and this assswipe has refused to recuse himself.

    It will be hilarious if Trump has to withdraw, er, fire, Whitaker and the only person who can do the job is Rosenstein! Wouldn't THAT be a hoot.

    First Mueller was just waiting to pounce with indictments after the mid-term elections and now he is getting close?

    You guys with Trump derangement syndrome sure like moving the goal post. It is like those cults that predict the end of the world and have to make up excuses why it didn't end. So then they make up something else like "we just got the date w ...[text shortened]... eller doesn't have anything. That is why he has been winding it down. Hasn't the reality set in yet?
    But trump derangement syndrome doesn’t really exist, does it?
    No, not really. It’s a meaningless put-down coined by pro-trump supporters and regurgitated by morons and folk with Titas*.

    Not so much a syndrom, but more a misleading PR tactic.

    *Titas = tongue in trump’s arse syndrome.

    How about free college for veterans instead of illegals and a whole host of other people who just want free stuff without paying anything for it?

    Could the GOP and DNC agree on this?
    How about sorting veterans benefits out for a start. Your country treats them disgracefully.

    Should the existence of the bad wipe out the existence of the good elsewhere in a life?
    Does it have to be an either/or situation? Is it acceptable to say that a person was
    heroic at one point in life, then a seriously flawed human being during a later period?

    Do we need to idealize? Are there people who are 100% good or 100% bad?

    This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.
    For democracy to work.
    1. The electorate need to exercise their right to vote.
    2. The electorate need to be well informed.

    Not just in America but both of these are under attack world-wide.

    Went to see the film 'Bohemian Rhapsody ' last night.

    Halfway through someone walked in front of the projector and cast his shadow on the screen.

    I shouted out:

    "I see a little silhouetto of a man..."

    I've never been genetically tested, nor have I had any real interest.

    How about you?
    Do trailer park people have their own genes ?

    By all means, get tested !! 😆

    "The more important question is

    How many people that own guns will actually kill someone?
    Hmm?"

    "Your logic meanders like water on a sand table."


    Sooooo deep, wolfgang, like you could be like the rhp guru like seer with your ponderings and musings.

    In answer to your question how many have been saved, it depends on who you ask, it's one of those things that ...[text shortened]... hat are not committed because the potential victim might be carrying, or might have access to a gun?
    If guns were a deterrent then surely America's crime levels would be lower than gun-free countries.

    Miraculously, everyone around Trump is as corrupt as Al Capone as they do so with impunity UNTIL they are appointed by Trump to do a task.

    Then all of a sudden people give a damn?

    Interesting.

    On this Veterans Day/Armistice Day/Remembrance Sunday we
    remember the brave souls whose lives were lost in conflicts.

    The American Civil War was particuarly painful, many US soldiers
    died too in WW1 and WW2. Then there are the deaths in Iran, Iraq
    and god knows where else.

    But it is a sobering thought that the American lives lost in total in
    ALL wars is less than gun related deaths in US since 1968 some 100,000 less in fact.

    Shouldn't US have a special day to remember them?

    Scary stuff.
    I know people who would run unarmed after
    a mass-shooter but not face a heavy shower.
