This is advertising malpractice on a massive scale. In any other business, a company would have to answer for this, having risked their customers’ reputation and spent their money so carelessly, but it’s , so they don’t have to answer for anything. Hey, monopolies, right?

Hey , just wanted to let you know that this Acura Summer of Performance ad is on Breitbart, a site that supports fascism and marginalization of minorities. I was surprised and disappointed to see it there.

Elon Musk has landed rockets on boats and delivered a wonderful, affordable, electric car. But the effort seems to have left him mad. And now he threatens to destroy what he has created.

Optimism. We went through a period of darkness and pessimism 100 years ago. The reaction after Taft was unprecedented progressivism. And Taft was no Trump.

16/What is doing here is giving you the santized version of Lee, the "marble man" myth-it's an image that has no basis in fact and is easily disproven by the historical record. I mean, this stuff isn't secret.

There’s a lot of talk about norm erosion in the Trump era. The talk normally focuses on Trump. But what the Republican Senate is doing might well create the most lasting damage. First they blocked Merrick Garland. And now they’re preventing a real review of Brett Kavanaugh.

The hidden Kavanaugh papers are a hell of a lot more important to the future of the country than the Omarosa tapes. If only someone could leak the papers to Omarosa so that she could release a few of them each day.

Sign me up for the John Brennan list. Happy to lose my clearances to stand with those who love our country, fight for our country and put our values above petty proclamations and a disregard for institutional knowledge, history and respect of others.

The pseudo-legal principle that the C officers' sole responsibility is to their shareholders bottom line was a disastrously self-fulfilling prophecy. Wall Street gets rich, all other stakeholders (workers, customers, communities, the country) get the shaft.

The thief tip-toed toward the dragon's hoard, reached out, and picked up... "What!" he exclaimed. "Cookies?" The dragon looked over its shoulder. "Yes, I'm keeping them warm. Do you want one?" "But... Why?" "I was told they are much nicer when they are warm. Try one."

Mark my words: by 2020 the GOP policy platform will include demands for a constitutional amendment reading "If they can use that word, so can we."
