Holder? I Just Met Her

A recent Matt Taibbi book, The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, was like one of those 3 or 4 short films under one title movies, the resonances of which often take hours, days, months to dawn.

Juxtaposed against the death spiral into debtors' prisons for outstanding warrant arrests and the trials of the migrants and their particular take on the Russian roulette of the revolving door (oh Rooooooo-bi-o: don't take your vote to work), is an exploration of the reasons no persons, save for a little tokenism here and there, did hard time for r*tfucking their own customers, nor for causing our bailout to a blackmail in plain sight.

Moreover, the companies where the almost 2nd Great Depression was fermented exited stage right with an expensable fine in the dead of night on a news dump Friday, in a brown paper sack.

The War Lust is Strong

A framework for future peaceful negotiations with Iran has now gone past, albeit not way past, the "size and shape of the table" phase which so often derails things. It also benefits from the support of nuclear proliferation experts and has provoked an international chorus of job well done, which anything involving America hasn't heard in a long time.

The Senate almost super-majority, which is intent on chucking ample spanners to halt the work so far, will be blowing up the only thing around with a chance to keep us from actually blowing things up.

The war lust is strong again.

Douglas Feith's new boss (same as the old boss but with a more camera-beguiling evil) is Tom Cotton (he of letter to the Ayatollah from forty-seven senators fame).

The Ideas Are Out There

I can't begin to fake vomit enough to show my displeasure at early campaign coverage to persuade my intended audience that I'm for reals.

Now that support for Mike Pence (Gov. - R, IN) has been indelibly inked onto the visages of every Republican contender, one has to wonder what separates, logically, a unanimity air freshener in a clown car from the mostly unifying candidacy of a solitary honorable partisan. Hashtag question mark? 

Hillary Clinton presents one issue to her party: is she healthy?

Were she to prove not to be, would the subsequent scramble (great band name) prove unhealthy for her party and hand the election to the Republicans?
