Hi Jonathan. Sorry you have to be up at such a goddamned awful hour but you make me laugh. There are probably loads of people, like me, who are in different time zones: here in Cape Town it's 9.30 a.m - so I'm awake, I'm listening and I'm working- thanks!!! Great stuff.

Honestly, whoever gets the nod in November, it's gonna be weird. But really, really weird if DT gets it.

Nothing has changed. Back in late 60's, early 70's it was baby boomers getting the ability to vote and who did they vote for? Nixon! Then in 80's, Reagan! Now we boomers vote Trump. Trump just says in public what Nixon said into a tape recorder in the Oval office.
Avatar Sun. 5/8/16 4:13am greysquad:

from wikipedia...
A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously."

...Trump wouldn't even exist as a Candidate - much less frontrunner - if there were real Reporting anymore. They pal up to him for Ratings. Most of everything is owned by the 1/10th of 1% - & there's so little left in terms of Civic resources that aren't 'monetized' - they've whittled resources down so starkly...we don't even have News @ all anymore...
