Thanks for the new thread!

NEW THREAD. Comey is completely NUTS.

To not recognize a FREAK/GOOF, like Comey is a TRAVESTY. The MAN is not only a criminal, but he has lived and prospered and profited in the SWAMP for DECADES. He has also gone FULL COMMIE ME ME ME CAPITALIST a couple of times.
But SERIOUSLY.... BEEEG JIMBO CURTAINS COMEY is so obviously CUCKOO for COCOA PUFFS, that, those who DO NOT RECOGNIZE his PSYCHOSIS, are prolllly, themselves, NUTS.

Regarding the conjecture that Mueller hired Steele and Fusion GPS to do research for his report.

I'd love it to be true, because it would make Mueller look bad, and I don't like Mueller. I doubt it's true, though. First of all, why would Barr redact it? That is, unless it's an "ongoing matter" because Barr is contemplating charging Steele, Fusion GPS, and maybe Mueller, too, with some crime -- which piles wishful thinking upon wishful thinking. Second, unlike the Democrats, Republicans have gone to see lightly-redacted version of the report. I suspect if there were a scandal like that hidden in the redactions, some hint of it would have come out.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

I was idly thinking: OK, the PO bank would be fine just NOT the money losing payday loans.
But then I thought: what's the chance the govt could loan out money from deposits and make a buck? Shaky! Don't do it.

MJW

The above comment is predicated on the assumption that the supposed association with Steele and Fusion GPS is in the report, but redacted. I assume that's what Paul Sperry is suggesting by preceding the text with close-ups of blocks of "Harm to Ongoing Matter" redacted text from the report, but can't be certain.

In any case, I have no doubt it will come out soon, if true. He can refuse to name his contractors to the public, but he can't hide them from his boss, Barr.

MJW

One more thing. Though I think Mueller doesn't like Trump, and was out to get him on whatever he could, I believe the main thrust of his report was to defend the FBI and others who investigated Trump; to say, maybe Trump, in the end, wasn't guilty of colluding with Russians, but the investigations were justified and proper.

From above:

But I do wonder if the sheer number of mass killings has caused a psychological change in a segment of the American people. I do wonder if “fight” is replacing “flight” in enough American hearts that immediate and courageous resistance becomes the norm – and that killers will start to understand that they’ll have to instantly battle one or more raging, charging men before they can complete their terrible, deadly work.

Hmm---could it be people (mainly men, I wish to note) are seeing a single person courageously standing up to attacks rather regularly? Understanding that a single person deciding to fight back CAN make a difference?

MAGA!

Amonamom,

Interesting thought. Some kind of adaption modification of crowd behavior?

Perhaps we should let boys engage in the politically incorrect games that I enjoyed as a boy - cowboys vs, indians, war games with dirt-clogged barrels of pop-guns, hide and seek, riga-a-leerio *or what ever people call games like capture the flag?").

We learned to hide, to seek, to stalk, to make coordinated attacks with teams of friends.

To sacrifice for the team in a way that allowed the team to win.

In some ways a school shooter is engaging in the same type of game, but they've forgotten the rules. No guns, no knives.

MissMarple2

I would like to point out that my neighbor's friend has no bank account and she cashes my checks to him. He also sells scrap metal.

Seems to me he has wised up to not having to declare income for tax purposes.

anonamom

jim nj, I have to wonder if the shooters had engaged in such games in real life, with real live people, instead of in front of a screen, they'd have chosen a path other than shooting their classmates.

Incomprehensible to me how whatever is going on in their minds causes them to think that is the way to express it.

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - All four children in a New Zealand family have Royal namesakes after Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan named their newborn son Archie earlier this week, it was reported on Friday.

“It’s a royal flush - what are the chances?” Jo Stafford, who lives in Otago in the southeastern region on New Zealand’s South Island, told the Otago Daily Times.

Stafford’s children are Charlotte, 11, Harry, 9, George, 7, and Archie, 4.

jim in nj,re: your 4:41, while stalled in traffic the other day on Northern Boulevard in Little Neck, NY, (which is now a largely Asian community) I saw a little boy, maybe 5, using his index finger as a pantomime barrel of a pistol shooting at the cars. I started sniping back at him from the driver's seat. From there, the litle boy's pistol morphed into a machine gun, which he operated with both hands, shaking his whole upper body with recoil. It was a refreshing, and encouraging sight, that I had not seen in decades.

Anonamom,

Nowadays some people value free-range chicken eggs.

Back in the 50's and 60's we valued free-range children. I think children socialize differently now.

I think back then they learned more coping skills.

Bullies have existed from the dawn of time. You learned to ignore and pity them. To avoid confrontations with them, all when knowing that if you went after them with all your heart and soul that they would crumble before you.

The criteria for school shootings seems to be students lashing out at bullies. I feel for them, but they should have learned coping skills.

Like how to beat the crap out of a bully, or st least, how to take a beating from a bully and teach him/her that you're no longer an easy target.

Or, at least, how to bluff. You may beat me now, but I'm going to come after you over and over when you least expect it.

The author of the famous Trump dossier provided a secret report to the FBI asserting that RT founder Mikhail Lesin was bludgeoned to death by thugs hired by an oligarch close to Putin. Three other sources independently told the FBI the same basic story, contradicting the government’s finding that Lesin’s death was accidental.

Raise your hand if you don’t think Gillibrand has the graft already planned?

You just know a government-controlled bank will end up being the delivery method for ever more payoffs to favored people and groups.

And costs? Imagine the construction of new post offices in all the s#&%hole neighborhoods that will be demanded to ”deliver this service” to the “underserved”?

When it struggles, demands that “the rich” be forced to open accounts to beef up deposits?

Can’t see the net good coming from it.

jimmyk

No one can seriously think that the same government that has made a hash of health care, trains, and, yes, the postal system, could manage extending the failing postal system into banking. These are the geniuses like Barry who think profit is overhead.

Talks with China continue in a very congenial manner - there is absolutely no need to rush - as Tariffs are NOW being paid to the United States by China of 25% on 250 Billion Dollars worth of goods & products. These massive payments go directly to the Treasury of the U.S.......

....The process has begun to place additional Tariffs at 25% on the remaining 325 Billion Dollars. The U.S. only sells China approximately 100 Billion Dollars of goods & products, a very big imbalance. With the over 100 Billion Dollars in Tariffs that we take in, we will buy.....

Oh golly:

In the case of Donald Trump's occupation of the White House, the Psychologist Gary Greenberg suggests that for some 'it was team pride, for others the sense that something precious to them – reproductive rights, racial tolerance, gender equality – was suddenly threatened. For others still, the narcissistic injury of having such a repellent man embody the country in which they had been trained to take pride.'

I often help clients define their own values by asking them to identify someone whose values they deplore. Once we can see clearly the particular value (or lack of a particular value) in others which we cannot stand, our own values (mostly the inverse of theirs) become clear. Many clients have discovered, thanks to Donald Trump, their own values of fairness, truth, humility, inclusion, and grace.

Had an interesting couple days. Tuesday evening I get a call that although local, I hesitated to answer given I didn’t recognize it. Well, it was the local courthouse and as it turns out I had missed my first day of jury duty. Oops. I’d completely forgotten that I was committed to be available for most of May. So bright and early on the next two days, I saunter over to the courthouse and sit in various rooms with what seems like half the county.

So yesterday I’m with some of the same peeps that I was grouped with on Wednesday, namely other miscreants who didn’t show up on the first day. Heh. Group W Bench. One of them is now my new best pal. We turned out to practically be twins separated at birth, although he’s nearly a decade and a half younger. Cars, guns, you name it, we couldn’t find any subject we couldn’t practically finish each other’s sentences on.

So late in the afternoon, they try to finish up interviews with last dozen of us particularly a bunch who have to catch the ferry back to Orcas. My new bud gets called and several minutes later, he’s excused. Then I get called. First time for me to get into the witness chair with the whole crew there. Mikes, stenographer, the whole enchilada. Won’t discuss the details of the case beyond that it is a murder trial because I vaguely recall promising not to, but my chat with the lead defense atty, was really sumpin. I had commented in the 10 page questionnaire, that I had mixed feelings about the world of shrinks. He wanted to clarify that particular situation because they were arguing mental incapacity as their ONLY defense. This all took about 20 minutes and wrecked any chance that the rest of the gang in the other room would wrap up and not have to come back in the morning.

What was the sticking point you might ask? I give the lead guy a five minute lecture on the obvious deterioration of the shrink profession wherein they have so corrupted the definitions of being whacko, that instead of having people locked up in state institutions like we did 50 yrs ago, they were now sleeping in doorways down in Seattle. And unless the dude across the table was wearing a jacket with the arms wrapped around the back sitting in a wheelchair while drooling out of the corner of his mouth, it seemed a stretch to give him a pass for bashing his wife’s head in.

I don’t think he liked that.

Anyway, now I’m back to trying to get my plane home from the paint shop.

"Rosenstien celebration then a victory dance for those saving the swamp"

Likely? no, but conceivable.

The Infamous Ignatz

--It’s time to stop relying on the big banks and predatory lenders, and expand access to fair consumer banking services through “a public option” like postal banking and public banks.--

A non-crazy idea? Extending 2008's sub-prime housing loan catastrophe to the entire economy?
On what planet is that not a crazy idea?
The market already provides short term loans to low income people, otherwise known as bad risks. That is why their interest rates are so high; they're more unlikely to repay them.
One of two things would result from this.
Either low income people will default on their loans and their neighbors will have to pay the loans back through taxation or the government will step in like the worst loan shark ever and force the poor to give them all their assets above a certain minimum as it does now with public assistance.
Either scenario is worse than what we have now.
The Post Office can't even break even with a governmental monopoly on mail delivery, but it's going to run a bank for the poor?

That's very crazy. It should be given to some efficient governmental entity like the DMV or public education. ::eyeroll::
