Thursday Open Thread

Hope all you mid-westerners are keeping warm and safe from the artic blast.

Did some video searching yesterday, while home from work. Dig in if you dare!

And I’ll leave you with this classic interview.

      And still the treasonous perpetrators remain …sitting pretty while being treated with effusive reverence and deference …and as if completely legit and deserving..

      And lest we forget, a treasonous buffoon (and his desperate, compromised, financially and morally bankrupt cohort and kkklan), has the nuclear codes – and complete access to America’s top secrets and most sensitive intelligence..

      May God help us..

      Tiffany, had to educate these mofos. Because Reagan’s policies didn’t affect whiteness, like those sitting on that panel….

        I’ve been sharing with my fam for so long about this insidiously mainstreamed soulless, malicious, entitled, condescending, snot-nosed, know-it-all, Alt-Right a-hole, Noah Rothman – part of that Tucker Carlson bow-tie wearing, ‘preppy’ racist ilk …Also part of this mix, the likes of that forever gaslighting, smarmy, tub of lard, John Podhoretz, malicious, racist weasel Jonah Goldberg etc. (Smerconish is of a lighter ‘Philly’ variety ..or at least his wannabe slick b*tt tries to pretend to be – while Joe Scarborough is their Jim Crow country bumpkin cousin who’s trying his darnedest to fit in/assimilate, ‘belong’ with his cool coastal preppy Alt-Right cousins)

        They also happen to share a particularly troublesome strain of Zionist, Neocon, white supremacist ‘ideology’.. pushed through their Commentary magazine – which now seems to have a permanent ‘relationship’ with MSNBC’s Morning Joe 3 hour show… And for some time now, has had a permanent running musical chair type presence of either Rothman or Podhoretz …

    So Noah Rothman’s point is that social justice efforts fail to convince folks like him, so they must be – therefore – wrong.

    Maybe, and I am just spitballing here, Mr. Rothman’s resistance to hearing anything that threatens his worldview is the problem? #morningjoe #MSNBC

    At bottom & buried beneath this general statement is the dirty little secret – Republicans happily traded off Trump’s odiousness in exchange for getting their agenda through – cutting taxes on the rich, deregulation & solidifying conservative rule on SCOTUS for the next 20 yrs

    Always amused me how those PETA folks wouldn’t step towards a Black Woman wearing a fur in those protests😒😒

    AOC proposes a 70% top marginal tax rate (only applied to income over $10 million).

    In 1965, the US applied a 70% top rate to income over $1.35 million (in today’s dollars).

    In 1981 the 70% top rate applied to income over $475,000 (in today’s dollars).

    I am inside-, but I just checked the commuter rail site to see how bad it was.There are three train stations that carry people into downtown. While two stations have delays, they completely shut down one station- no trains running. Damn…all those commuters out of luck.😒

    NEW: @SenatorTimScott met with Thomas Farr today. He still opposes his nomination, and had some sharp words for the 31 conservatives who sent him a letter yesterday telling him he shouldn’t cooperate with the liberal smear campaign calling Farr a racist:
