It’s said that dogs are a pretty good judge of character, can we teach him/her to bite the slob every time he lies, until we find the dog a suitable home?

How many trump cabal cronies does it take to unscrew a doorknob in order to steal it? Thousands … leaving the capitol with lots of brass.

Wrong question.
How much tax payer money has it take to pay how many MAGA-cappers to unhinge a door and float it down the Potomac to hide the fact that ALL the doorknobs have been stolen?

Wrong question.
How many times do have to save our sanity by posing ‘what does it take’ jokes before the ‘will of heaven’ mandates our bridging ALL DIVIDE AND CONQUER TACTICS and we build a healthy nation?

Knock, knock
who’s there?
It’s me, I can’t get in theres no doorknob … what did you think? that this was some kind of knock knock joke?

Part of the problem is that Americans have a very poorly developed sense of sovereignty, and rather than recognize it as a failing, embrace it as a virtue.

A big part of the problem is the utter failure of the Fourth Estate, so critical to fully and truthfully inform the public. The media today has been neutered, corporatized and emasculated, failing to actually, you know, present the news; not pablum and feel-good BS like news has become; the giants of journalism would roll-over at the shallow crap peddled todaY AS “THE NEWS”! Informing the electorate all the news, truthfully, honestly and fully, with none of the rubbish propaganda of “telling both sides” of the truth! The “telling both sides” is a Goebbel’s fraud, there is only truth not “alternative fact” truth or the “other side”, those are lies just as der trumpenfuhrer spews by the hour!

“How many corrupt Trump officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?”

None. They’re always unscrewing the bulbs so as to take the light off their crimes and to keep the people in the dark about being fucked yet again.

The Fourth Estate has supported the Amerikan war mongering Fourth Reich all my life. The Fourth Estate has been so successful in poisoning the news that now; that vast numbers of Americans are so brainwashed with the news miasma that they unbelievable! As it is, love Trump. The Amerikan news media would, if he were still alive, make Joseph Goebbels proud to be an Amerikan!

It wouldn’t be so bad if these people had someone higher up does these errands. Trump is experienced in laundering. There ya go.

Especially cable news. All I ever see any more is clips of trump lying his ass off. I no longer get a thrill from that.
And where are our Silver Star and Bronze Star heroes of the press.
Afraid for their jobs? How about editors asking reporters to engage trump critically? Then I’d watch.

In the last 40 years it has gone down but I can remember when Walter Cronkite and CBS news more or less challenged the whole Vietnam war. Back then newspapers and tv stations showed the caskets of soldiers. But even in the past decade I have seen the San Francisco Chronicle attack monolith PG&E for its many failures. There is still some good investigative reporting but not what it was and the newspaper staffs have been virtually eliminated.

Yeah, Shanti, I guess I am thinking of the Fourth Estate as a concept with integirty, rather than the actuality of shallow pablum and propaganda in in today’s corporate media. We did get some actual journalism back 50 years or so ago with muck-rakers filling-in the spaces, like I F Stone. There were also network anchore with much more integrity than today’s sorry bunch reading the script prepped for them to recite.

Back then, the Media supported ethics. Now, they only support the elites.

Any MSM MEDIA anchors of integrity are never hired, or if they are like Donahoe, they are terminated.

Corporations like Disney bought the Fourth Estate and you know it. Real journalists can’t get a letter to the editor published. You know this. CIA is only the department which can take funds and allocate them in total secrecy, pentagon, CIA, dead. Recalibrate our enemy. Trump and Republicans are bag men. Prepare to blow Lebanon off the globe for Jesus. Netanyahu is annexing Palestine. Barr and Pompeo are CIA, above the law just like our presidential realtor aka game show host, aka war criminal.

Meanwhile, Trump is hiding out at Camp David, at least that’s what I heard the other day. Probably as Trump had someone in government come out and tell he media that the CDC F’ed up from the beginning. OH wow, that’s desperate! Oh, maybe Camp David the only place that doesn’t have the Covid19 virus yet. Oh wait—Trump’s there. So, I guess that there is no place in America that he can go. Oh yes, that old saying: “He can run but he can’t hide.”
HIs eyes have looked bad lately, and his brain appears to be running on fumes. A bully who has lost control—that is just the saddest thing, because the only direction after that fail is down. and downer ! Weirdly, I feel no pity-----however, a sense of joy seems to be growing—which is welcome as this nation is in such a sad state. : (
