    Hello , anyone home ? I knew that Sanders , Warren and Hilz really did a number on the progressive / liberal movement , but this is ridiculous .

    • A lot of folks are, I think, kind of gun-shy, and huddling in small, disparate communities, more by preferred style of chat, than by issues or ideology, so we don’t see the kinds of large, roving gangs of Progressive commenters, we saw before the election.

      • kreskin

        It was over with before it even began , we’re SOL .

    • Shaykayvah

      I’m here, just tired of it all. Sure we got rid of Hilz, but fuck, look what we got.

      • kreskin

        Not much point , is there ?

        • Shaykayvah

          Nope.

    Has Trump Been Secretly Stripped of His Presidency?

    There is a war going on in Washington, overtly between America’s intelligence agencies, including the Pentagon, and Trump. Trump is also at war with the press as well, stating that both the press and the intel groups are nothing but liars. Of course, Trump is absolutely correct, the press lies continually and intelligence agencies fabricate a world to justify the needs of their real clients, the globalists, the arms industry and big oil.

    But things are even worse now, we have a president who calls them out for their lies and then turns around and lies more than all of them combined. There is no government, only liars accusing each other of lying while doing what has always been done, stealing everything that isn’t nailed down and Trump looks like he is
    setting a new record for that as well.

    NATO military power? Don’t make horses laugh

    NATO can not take part in serious, even non-nuclear conflicts, because there are no proper weapons for the purpose. We will not say anything about the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation that has such powerful
    members as China and India. We would hurt the feelings of NATO members too much otherwise.

      The numbers are kinda dated but I think you get the point. Yes,they have lots of arms but sort of like the Norks their economy is not robust enough to support protracted conflict. They would not be pushovers by any way of looking at it but nor are they in a good position to start a conflict.

    • kreskin

      I’m sick and tired of the theater , will be glad when and if they return to the real world . Russia isn’t a threat to world peace , they are ! It is just appalling … what the media has turned into .

    Steve Bannon is preparing Trump for a holy war

    Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s chief strategist, is a nutjob, someone who should be kept far, far away from
    the corridors of power; however, under Trump, he has been allowed to become the centre of power. This essay by C. B. Anthony examines Bannon’s recent past and provides an insight into the man’s disturbing
    politics and worldview.

What the story is , I don’t know .Wife’s cousin is driving us to the airport , it’s a long ways from here . Hope everything is still in it , we shall see . Two weeks late , who’da thunk it ? Didn’t think I’d see it again .

    • notisaidthepig

      Excellent. I had a feeling it would show up. Oink!

      • kreskin

        Sir Pig , positive and hopeful . Good way to be , I need some of that . LOL .

    • oodaloop

      I wonder how many hands have gone through all of your belongings…and if they re-folded your underwear correctly. 😉

      • kreskin

        Suitcase contents looked untouched , somewhere along the line someone put plastic ties on the zippers to prevent access , each tie has a code number . Lady at Ulyanovsk airport went through a lot of trouble to find me . They were really friendly , Americans are a bit of novelty there I am sure .

  • notisaidthepig

    Can I just say for the record (and once again) that I do not have a facebook account? I’m proud of that. I use DuckDuckGo instead of Google. Baby steps?
