Broadcast media...ugh!
True, I usually don't go out of my way to watch any news source these days....

Me, I haven't really watch or listened to any news broadcast in years.

This has to do less with content itself and more that I usually find it frustratingly empty of any depth.

Plus, I'm much better and comprehending and retaining information from print sources than broadcast sources.

Re: Twitter Bans Alex Jones
Have you noticed how many of the "best, wonderful, special people" appointed by Trump that have quit or been fired? More than any other administration in history. Trump is really terrible at judging character and almost everyone he has appointed is incompetent and corrupt.

Or worse, a smidgen more ethical than Trump allows for his minions.

Kavanaugh Protestors Paid
Since I'm forbidden to post on the Trump Presidency thread this is where I have to post my answer to the challenge there to provide evidence that the protestors at the Brett Kavanaugh hearing were paid. This seems to be the main evidence: three doctors who witnessed it while standing in line for the hearing:

Re: Kavanaugh Protestors Paid
I know you are capable of insisting on such a bizarre claim against all reason, so all I can do is hope is that some rational person who disagrees with me politically will come along and set you straight.

Percy's tip for President was being interviewed on Fox News last week. Thankfully, Fox presented the coverage in a Fair and Balanced™ way, unlike the liberal Fake News™ outlets:

Dems: Vote early and OFTEN
How cute, but unfortunately more than cute, they actually do this stuff:
Headline, Dem Leader Tells Crowd: “vote Early and Often – Whatever You Can Get Away With”

Took twenty-nine seconds to say it:

Newsman: "Mr. Mayor, why is it that your opponent in the election says such terrible things about you, while you only say what a good job he's done on the city council?"

Mayor: "Maybe we are both lying."

Re: Dems: Vote early and OFTEN
You are taking it too seriously.

This seems to have been from the Chicago area. And "vote early, vote often" is a common joke around here. I think it dates from the time that Richard J. Daley was mayor of Chicago, and the Republicans used to make charges of vote rigging.

That said, I do vote early and vote often. I vote early -- shortly after polls open. And I vote often -- at every election and primary.

In the 2008 election, I voted twice for congressman. But one of those votes was for him to fill the remainder of the term left by retiring Hastert. And the other of those votes was for the new congressional session starting in January.
