about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

the zeitgeist (Whoa man, two German words). I visit Echidne on a regular basis,
because the information and insight is both amusing and accurate.
Jane Mayer has written an excellent and important piece about the longer-term consequences of the
Citizens United Supreme Court decision which gave every dollar the same political power. Most of us
could foresee what that might mean: The very rich can now legally buy almost any administration
they wish and create almost any laws they want.
And Mayer shows us, very carefully, how that led to Trump and the large number of white supremacists
and possibly even a Nazi or two in his administration. These shadowy super-billionaires Mayer
writes about, using Mercer as her example, are the true deep "state" in the United States, our true
Granted, we still have voting for the hoi polloi, though it's more and more restricted for the black
Americans every day. But if you think of voting somewhat like picking a meal in a restaurant,
remember that it's people like Mercer who wrote the menu, who decided what dishes should be on it.

been a reputable journalist for the New Yorker since 1995.

14 Standard Deviations.
In fact, the aggregate wealth of Japan, is somewhere between 3 and 4 standard deviations. So WTF Mr.
Ryan? I realize you had a few brews back in college salivating over destroying government, but why
didn't you give back those tawdry Social Security payments after your father died, back in the day
when you too were a young man in need of a little help? Tell us, Mr. Ryan, why do you indulge in the
suffering of others behind a bunk philosophy?
In case you were unaware, in statistics, 3 standard deviations is the extreme for a normal
distribution of items that have
relatively similar characteristics and background enviromental influences. For a normal
distribution, 99.7 percent of all items will be within a 3 standard deviation interval. To be 14
standard deviations from the mean, is akin to a billion year global event.
Can I say this again? THIS. IS. NOT. NORMAL.

I am sooooooooooo completely sick of all these reporters and journalists using the term "alt-right"
like its a keyboard key stroke sequence. Just tap [alt][arrow Right] and a goose-stepping image of
Hitler appears on the screen.
Can we just call them Nazi's already? Because that's what they are. When reporters on the TeeVee
mention "platform of the alt-right" they should call it instead "the agenda of National
Socialist party". The rump group of Rethuglicans in the Congress are there because of election
chicanery and thievery, so how much integrity do you think you are gonna get out of these
liars/thieves and the morbid racists who use them?

OMG this is the president
Trump ignores the German presses audible request and then statement by Chancellor Merkel for a
handshake. He just sits there with a dumb, drooling, pompous look on his face and then quips "Send
a good picture to Germany for me."
He is an arrogant buffoon. Please make it stop.

Uhm, are you paying attention ?
The super rich are hi-jacking the state and manipulating the patriotism and prejudices of the
lower classes in order to destroy the people's democracy and steal the people's treasury. This is a
world-wide phenomenom. It's happening nation after nation all over the world right now.
They eat everything from krill to plankton to small fish, regardless of whether they speak whale.
They even have a specialized way of hunting where they gang up on schools of fish to try to eat them
all at once. Itís called bubble net feeding. The humpbacks divide up, some swirling around a group
of fish and some blowing air, such that the circling whales can drive their victims into a net made
of bubbles. This confuses the fish, trapping them inside, until one whale sounds the call and they
all rush in, mouths agape, swimming upwards through the teeming mass of fish.

Lee Camp is funny as shit
This quote comes from the previous video starting at 18:13.
[You] see White House, when a man really loves a corporate donor, and they get a private moment
together, a special moment, some candles lit maybe, a little flowers, lite music, [that's when] you
the "D". Alright, but not just out on public display.
Wow, I knew there would be a learning curve
for the Trump White House to figure out how to be quietly corrupt. But this is ridiculous.
Seriously, you don't put the head of Exxon-Mobil as Secretary of State, okay. You are suppose to put
in like a puppet, some dumb sap you [got] out on the street who is gonna do whatever you want, does
everything you say ... like George W. Bush, remember him [laughs in mimic of GW Bush's infamous
chuckle] ... remember that guy. Yea, he's pulling his nose in. Cover it up a little. Have some
class. These guys are going with the full Monte.
This part occurs at 24:20
I know we have grown accustomed to this stuff. Like, we are used to the fact that most American's
are struggling. We have grown habituated to it, and we have to fight that feeling that this is
normal. America is incredibly rich. Insanely rich ... there is a banana's amount of wealth in this
country and [yet] half of all Americans couldn't deal with a $500 emergency, because that money has
been sucked to the top one percent. That's not okay. This is not alright. And these assholes have
the nerve to go on TeeVee and brag about it. And brag about exploiting us.
I never thought I would ever miss the George W. Bush Republican administration, but good lord, I
actually believe Dubya had a few moral principles and is a decent human being at heart when
compared to this ruthless, heartless, inhuman gang of thugs that current inhabit the White House and
most of the Rethuglican party.
The rest of the video is riotous by the way. I would love to quote the rest. Lee Camp is on fire
