Another page of reactions from Congress and State Governors, Trump again blamed ‘both sides’ in Charlottesville. Here’s how politicians are reacting.

Perhaps he has done the calculus and believes there is more money for him to be made as the infamous President to be removed from office. It would secure him is history classes for as long as there is a USA.

I still don't see anything significant happening in this situation unless Kim or Trump do something really inflammatory beyond just words(which they might), but I'm cautiously optimistic things will quiet down.

I Say: Monuments can Create an Environment where REAL TRUE HISTORY can be Discussed and NOT HIDDEN, NOT Replaced by BIAS AGENDA SANITIZED EMOTIONALLY ADJUSTED History.

A monument here was moved recently to another town:
http://wfpl.org/confederate-monument-will-get-a-new-home/

I can see both sides, but there's also the fact this other town is going to gain some revenue from tourism just for the simple fact it has the controversial monument.

I too can see both sides but memorializing treason is not questionable. Armed rebellion is treason.

Those who celebrate treasonous traitors should be on a watch list, just like terrorists.

Kim opts to wait but the threats are still there.

Analysts say it could simply mean Pyongyang is not fully ready to launch an attack on Guam, so it could just be buying more time.

Besides a delay of a couple weeks means the launch can happen in the middle of the joint military exercise.

ELECTION 2016
New Studies Show Liberals and Conservatives Have Different Brain Structures

This and other studies indicate it is physiological.
http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/new-studies-show-liberals-and-conservatives-have-different-brain-structures

Now that is interesting.
So conservatives are more fearful and liberals are more brainy.
How would that translate in business?
One might expect fear driven persons to pass up opportunity when it knocks. Not exactly what makes a business grow is it? No wonder they can't get ahead.

It is easy to play on fear, the Nazi's did it and there is a reason the neo-nazi is still a nazi. Seems the world never learns it lessons. I'm just saddened that all the trumpettes are preaching the same kind of brown shirt hate. And they seem to want to give 45 the powers of the fuhrer too. They must be stopped. They must be consigned to the dust bin of history. The hate they preach is obscene. Perhaps that is how to deal with them, obscenity charges for their vile disgusting repugnant filth.

obscene: adjective:
offensive or disgusting by accepted standards of morality and decency
offensive to moral principles; repugnant

David, don't know who your card is with, but I have two things to say.
1) Never put your card into a gas pump
2) Change credit card companies - that one sounds terrible.


Agreed. I get a text within 30 sec of any thing over a pre-set threshold. When I have called to dispute something I have always reached someone right away. No Hold.

30 sec, that long? I actually got one last week before the merchant got the decline message. (Large unusual charge by me. A "Y" back and they unlocked the card)
As to the fraud/lost card department, never long enough for music on hold to kick in.

Long time ago I had a card with an crap company. They pulled something and I shot back, and it actually turned into a Federal Case. That bank sold the card business a couple months later too. Think they bit off more than they could chew,

Oh, third thing, David, put it in writing and mail it certified return receipt requested. Think your card company might be that bad.

Charlottesville is America everywhere

US white supremacists and Neo-Nazis are no longer afraid of showing their faces because they face no repercussions.


On Friday evening in Charlottesville, a coordinated group of white supremacists marched through the University of Virginia campus holding torches, shouting "white lives matter", and setting the stage for the Unite the Right rally on Saturday. The rally, which protested against the removal of Confederate monuments and sculptures within the city, galvanised white supremacists from various groups, most notably Ku Klux Klan sympathisers, Neo-Nazis, and leaders of the so-called "alt-right" movement.

With their faces unmasked and identities uncloaked, the protesters raised their arms and chanted "blood and soil", in the Nazi tradition, not fearing their association with the hate group and its ideology. The rally highlighted not only the growing normalisation of the white supremacist movement in the United States, but also its intimate synergy with the administrative and institutional leadership in Washington, DC.

US President Donald Trump, his rise and subsequent regime, have emboldened white supremacists of every stripe in America. Of course, championing such an ideology in modern times is neither new nor unprecedented. In fact, both an Ivy League law school professor and a member of congress have done so recently.

What is new is the brazen manner in which the protesters are expressing their support for white supremacist ideology, not being afraid to show their faces, eschewing coded language or dog-whistles to describe their beliefs. They appear seemingly unconcerned about being stigmatised as racists or Neo-Nazis and feel that they are part of the mainstream political landscape in the US once again.
...
Therefore, white supremacists are hardly ideological deviants or fringe segments of society nostalgic for American apartheid. While mainstream political discourse has framed them as such for decades, the movement in Charlottesville showed that the visible foot soldiers on the ground are intimately connected to state power and policies seeking to abolish affirmative action, suppress the vote of communities of colour, enforce Muslim bans, and limit immigration to English speakers.

So is it time for the USA to adopt regulations like Germany for neo-nazism? https://www.economist.com/blogs/gulliver/2017/08/don-t-mention-war https://apnews.com/7038efa32f324d8ea9fa2ff7eadf8f20/American-tourist-gives-Nazi-salute-in-Germany,-is-beaten-up

What does our bridge dweller who birthed a heard of cows over a profile picture with a swastika have to say about marching down the street with a Nazi flag chanting support for their brother in arms 45?

Seventeen people have been killed and eight wounded in a "terrorist attack" in the centre of the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, the government says.

Witnesses were quoted as saying that three gunmen opened fire on customers seated outside a hotel and restaurant.

The city centre has been sealed off by the army, and the US embassy in Ouagadougou has warned its citizens to avoid the area.

A jihadist attack on a cafe nearby left 30 people dead in January last year.

There are fears that the attack is the work of one of the affiliates of al-Qaeda that are active in the Sahel region, the BBC's Alex Duval Smith reports.

Burkina Faso's Communication Minister Remis Dandjinou said it was unclear how many assailants had been involved.

"They are confined to one part of the building they attacked. Security and elite forces are conducting an operation," he said on television.

The shooting began shortly after 21:00 (21:00 GMT) on Sunday on Ouagadougou's busy Kwame Nkrumah Avenue.

The Aziz Istanbul Restaurant appear to have been at the centre of the shooting.

"The attack claimed 17 victims, their nationalities are yet to be confirmed, and eight injured," said a government statement quoted by the AFP news agency.

Witnesses said three gunmen arrived at a Turkish restaurant in a pickup truck on Sunday evening and opened fire on customers seated outside.

The government then launched a counter-assault, with gunfire heard into the night.

I find it interesting that a fishing bridge dweller spews that word upon the waters like chum.

He looks to the right and sees it. He looks to the left and sees it. Could it be because it is always right in front of him?

However I find the definition to be equivalent to the Tea Party or Republicans or Grover Norquist, even Kim of DPRK.
