Historic Moment

In other news, the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that Trump broke the law by refusing to speak to his unionized Vegas hotel employees. The NLRB says the Trump hotel is "operating illegally."

Meanwhile, the man arrested and charged for killing 2 police officers in Iowa this week apparently referred to football players kneeling during the national anthem as "cop haters." What does that make him?

Finally, Republicans in North Carolina have been caught red handed again. Emails obtained through open records requests (not hacking) show how state Republicans did everything they could to suppress voters this year.

When Bill McAnulty, an elections board chairman in a mostly white North Carolina county, agreed in July to open a Sunday voting site where black church members could cast ballots after services, the reaction was swift: he was labeled a traitor by his fellow Republicans.

"I became a villain, quite frankly," recalled McAnulty at a state board of elections meeting in September that had been called to resolve disputes over early voting plans. "I got accused of being a traitor and everything else by the Republican Party," McAnulty said.

Republicans really, really hate it when black people exercise their Constitutional right to vote. Actually, they just hate black people.

    Because we need a little silliness after a week like this one …

    (No, Lloyd the cat isn’t in this one. Sorry.)

    Lots of people have talked about the cognitive dissonance the right wing constantly has to live under. They profess conservative values and good morals. But Republicans have sunk to radical extremists with no morals.

    When you mix all those constant conflicting messages in someone who is seriously mentally ill, you get a guy who is angry at black people for disrespecting police but shoots cops.

    Imagine if the message was that you don’t have to hate the people you disagree with, and that there’s help out there for you if you are troubled. I imagine I’m preaching to the choir here, but please support and vote for Democrats at every level until 2020. We can’t begin to have more parties until the Republican Party comes back from the brink. And the only way that will happen is if they lose big.
