  1. This day has really been fk’d up. I’m so depressed.

  2. OMFG! Jason Van Dyke has paid the ultimate price? This is too much. WTFF? LaQuan McDonnell is dead. He paid the ultimate price. His life is gone. I can’t take this woman.

      This is simply another example of how our society and government works, in that, some people think the law doesn’t/shouldn’t apply to them, and that some lives are more valuable than others.

  3. May Jason Van Dyke get his due justice…………

    If Bernie Sanders is actually running in 2020, his people would view Tulsi Gabbard as an existential threat to their dream and would be ripping her apart (by sharing facts about her).

    I’m not seeing that anywhere.

    She’s Plan B.

      What I’ve been saying about injuries caused by police brutality. No one tracks them. No one knows how many or how the victims’ lives have been impacted. No one knows how many victims become disabled for life.

      This is wrong. Certainly the worst thing they can do is kill a person. But the second worst is to maim.

  6. Terrorism by the ones sworn to protect and serve. #JasonVanDyke was a predator preying on Black people. 18 years in prison is not enough for the lives he ruined

    There are two groups of GOP reptiles…the Old School kind..and the dopes brought in with Dolt45.

    When you read that Buzzfeed article…

    I have always believed that the Old School GOPers that worked for Dolt45, like Reince, have been singing like a muthaphucka to Bobby Three Sticks.

    The dopes that Dolt45 brought ARE stupid enough to have lied to the FBI and Special Counsel. …and, I include Race Bannon in that.

    The snitches are always the ones…like that lawyer dude who worked for The Evil One, but heard that bullshyt with Hope Hicks on AFO, and put in his resignation the moment AFO hit the ground.

    According to the NYT story last fall, one of the written questions to Trump from Mueller was, “What communication did you have with Michael D. Cohen, Felix Sater, and others, including foreign nationals, about Russian real estate developments during the campaign?”

    I know, since we all had the same Black mother…
    that, she told you to ‘ follow your first mind.’

    Well, there’s a storm coming our way, and my first mind was like..

    ” you best get your behind up and out of there before it begins.”

    so, I put in for a half day. …LOL

    An on point thought about the wall:

    @Kay: As you pointed out this is not about building a wall because they have no plan for that. It’s about embezzlement. I note there have already been surveys and some clearance in the affected areas before money was allocated so likely somebody borrowed money expecting to embezzle it back and now they have to or they will be in deep financial trouble. I suspect it’s Trump himself because not many would be that stupid.

    As far as Nancy Smash riding commercial..

    LarryO last night went into why the Speaker of the House no longer rides commercial. All wrapped up in the aftermath of 9/11.

    Nothing but a phucking lie…..trying to change the narrative.

    To Trump and this border rancher we Muslims leave our prayer rugs behind to mark the territory. Or maybe we do it to claim the land as our own. In any event if someone was so religiously devout they brought a prayer rug they wouldn’t leave it behind since need it 5 times a day.

    These explosive @Buzzfeed revelations should cause soul-searching by those who have assisted @realDonaldTrump in attacking Mueller & the FBI. They should prepare themselves for the possibility they may have been wrong, they may have been used, and the President might be a crook.

    Mr. Weeks 🤴🏾 (@MrDane1982) Tweeted:
    Did Michael Cohen have Trump on tape when Trump directed him to lie to Congress about the Moscow tower project…?

    And why haven’t one fucking commentator have the journalistic integrity to say Hillary Clinton was robbed and she should be President.

    Greg Sargent (@ThePlumLineGS) Tweeted:
    Media framing of Trump-Pelosi battle is widely awful. The whole “Dems sinking to Trump’s level” meme is not only utterly false on its face. It also trivializes the seriousness of Trump’s ongoing misconduct and does not allow space for public officials to respond to it seriously:

    A wall is not racist; it’s the the rationale, lies & philosophy behind Trump’s wall that is racist. Water fountains, buses & lunch counters were not racist, but they were segregated by lies, a philosophy & rationale that were racist.

      HA HA HA HA witness protection program. McTurtle is a ruthless, heartless, MOFO.

      When he retreats into that hard shell, I hope he never rears his ugly head again.

    The NYT published a hit piece on Kamala Harris.😡😡

    A reader at BJ made a good point about them attacking Kamala ” because she is not one of us. ”

    She is a California girl.

    College- HBCU
    Law School-Hastings, not UCLA, USC or Stanford
    Career: Public Service- not a hint of a stint at a blue -chip law firm in sight.

    Hadn’t thought of that angle.
