Will The Vengeful Asshole In The White House Jeopardize GOP Chances To Hold Congress?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
Virtually all recent polling shows that growing majorities of Americans view Trump's personal characteristics-- like integrity, honesty, intelligence, etc-- in negative lights. The last to go was the question about Trump as a strong leader. That would took the longest time to start slipping. But, finally, the polls are starting to show that people are distinguishing between a bully and a leader-- or at least realizing that bullies are weak, not strong. In this morning's *Politico* Alex Isenstadt delves into one of Trump's most infamous, pervasive and least admired characteristics-... more »

*"Watching the Thinker"* by Eckhart Tolle "What exactly do you mean by “watching the thinker”? When someone goes to the doctor and says, “I hear a voice in my head,” he or she will most likely be sent to a psychiatrist. The fact is that, in a very similar way, virtually everyone hears a voice, or several voices, in their head all the time: the involuntary thought processes that you don’t realize you have the power to stop. Continuous monologues or dialogues. You have probably come across “mad” people in the street incessantly talking or muttering to themselves. Well, that’s not m... more »

Is it ever a good idea to arm violent nonstate actors?

Patricia Sullivan, Associate Professor of Public Policy and the Curriculum in Peace, War, and Defense, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill at Politics + Society – The Conversation - 3 hours ago
In May, President Donald Trump authorized a plan to arm the YPG, a Kurdish militia in Syria. A month later, the YPG and their Arab partners in the Syrian Democratic Forces began the fight to take the Syrian city of Raqqa back from the Islamic State. While the U.S., Russia and Jordan agreed to a ceasefire in southwest Syria that went into effect Sunday, the intense battle for Raqqa continues in the north of the country. Turkey, a NATO ally and U.S. partner, is fiercely opposed to providing weapons to the YPG because Turkey considers the fighters to be terrorists. But the Pentagon ... more »
