My Fellow Americans, We Begin Bombing in 5 Minutes

 

The words absolutely scream from the printed pages and the computer screens: An Act of War.

It has come from both Democrats and Republicans, including members of the current Administration. But it is especially popular with those that are consumed with hatred for Donald Trump as they wish to paint him as a traitor to his country and unwilling to confront the Russians over their activities during the 2016 Presidential election cycle.

Can You Spot the Democratic Candidate?

 

Back in the early 1970s, Camel ran a series of magazine ads featuring arrays of colorful characters, each with an amusing “gimmick.” Each, that is, except for the Camel Filters smoker, who didn’t need a gimmick: he was confident, secure, rugged, good looking, relaxed — and usually had a jacket hooked casually over his shoulder. A key on the page, or occasionally on the reverse page, named the gimmicky characters and described their particular affectations.

I loved those ads when I was a kid. (click picture to enlarge)

The Hottest Tax Ideas on the Left Are Really Bold. Does It Matter That They’re Also Really Bad?

 

Policy wonks have a soft spot for bold ideas. Doubly so if those ideas are new or making a comeback after years in the wilderness. The New York Times columnist David Leonhardt recently heaped much praise on presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren for her “bold” and “ambitious” agenda that’s appropriate “to the scale of our challenges.”

Voters are no different. Plenty of folks on the left seem giddy about the idea of a “Green New Deal” that would put the US economy on a war footing against climate change. And it’s not just Democrats and progressives. Many on the right fondly recall how Ronald Reagan in the 1970s said Republicans should raise ”a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors.”

Going over Rush’s transcripts from yesterday’s show, Rush stated that the Mueller report does not exonerate Trump. Therefore, Rush and @fredcole are in agreement! In other news, the temperature in Hell is rapidly decreasing to 32 degrees Fahrenheit . . . Sort of. Rush says there is no evidence of collusion, obstruction, or any wrongdoing. […]

A Report from the DNC Convention Planning Committee

 

A recent meeting of the DNC Planning Committee for the 2020 Democratic Party Convention was held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Washington, DC. The planning committee discussed the various attributes and logistical challenges of finalist cities in the running to host the convention, as well as other topics on proposed stage designs, the size and shape of the speaker’s podium, and the placement and material to be used for the statue of Moloch where the live human child sacrifice would take place.

There was final agreement that it was necessary that the statue be much more solid and impressive than the ancient Greek temple backdrop for Barack Obama’s 2008 acceptance speech at Denver’s Invesco Stadium but also be made of recyclable materials and definitely not plastic which could end up further polluting the oceans.
