It's great to have our American press back

This is from Kurt Eichenwald Ed-in chief of Newsweek. It should be mandatory reading for every American over the age of 14. It is unbelievable yet totally verifiable and verified. It just shows what a real press can do in a real democracy to wanna-be dictators.

Stay focused - that is what Mr Trump does not want

Mr Trump is delighted that we are upset and distracted by the recent polls showing him gaining. Our response should be to stay focused on supporting Hillary and pay no attention to the recent shifting of polls. We should all do whatever is necessary to get our fellow DEMS to the polls and especially help our Black fellow DEMs vote.

what a lowlife scoundrel this man is

I can't believe that he will actually get more than 40% of the vote. I'm no attorney but it seems to me that he is breaking our laws against slander, fraud, and probably numerous other criminal acts. And we can't touch him because he is a candidate. We need to improve our legal system to be able protect us from characters like him in the future.

Focus on fact that Trump is a loser who is trying to blame and hurt people for his losses

I now always refer to trump as a crazed fascist loser with an emphasis on the "loser." He's trying to sell his supporters on the "big lie" that he is a winner just like every previous fascist dictator before him. If we all start calling him the loser that he is and providing the details of his many screwups and failures and how he wants to hurt people for them that may be an effective way of battling him now at the campaign's end..

Trump can't even abide by rules of a debate

He claims he is the Law and Order candidate but can't even abide by the rules of a debate to let his opponent speak without interruption. If he became president would he send everyone who disagreed with him to Siberia?

How to debunk the anti-hillary articles in news rags near check-out lines.

Whenever I see an anti-Hillary headline in one of these cheap news "rags" near the check out lines in my supermarket, I insert a page that carries the truth about her and the reminds people about the wrongdoings of Mr. Trump. That way I can be sure that the "deplorables" who want to read anti-Hillary BS will also see that not every one agrees with them. They are, in fact, advertising for my views as well!

Trumpism is showing us what is wrong with our failing democracy and how to fix it

One thing we should all demand is that public figures MUST tell the truth. They should be either fined or indicted for lying to the public and subject to harsh penalty including a jail sentence. I could see that becoming the foundation of an advanced form of democracy in which truth-telling is strongly enforced.

What Trump's success says about America

Trump's success says more about the failng of our democracy than about any talent of his. He has a demonstrated ability to play other people's failures to his advantage like any criminal.

His success is the result of the sustained stresses on our society of religion, wealth and right wing extremism all of which have "deals" or "understandings" with each other to sabotage our democracy. These groups have no use for democracy and will do anything in their power to disrupt it and replace it with rule by the rich and religious/police fascism.

Trump supporters would vote for Adolph Hitler for president if they could

I said this before and I'll say it again until they forcibly shut me up. America is the breeding ground for fascists and the major factor in causing this is religion. We live in a society that is dominated by religion. It is the only institution that you may not criticize yet has a choke hold on its billions of followers for their "salvation." It is authoritarian and totalitarian. Are we forgetting how the Vatican made Hitler's and Mussolini's rise to power possible in 1930s Europe? And how it colluded with the Protestant Fundies to create the death squads that tortured and killed millions? It has caused our society to hate intellectual activities to the point that we have become virtually illiterate and know nothing of history. It's aim is keep its subjects as its servants and prevent progress at all costs even if that means violent suppression. It has robbed our democracy of hundreds of billions of dollars (some even estimate trillions). When are we going to wise up and abolish its tax exemption and enforce the prohibition of its political activity. It is the most significant factor holding us back from confronting and coping with our major social, political and environmental problems today.

Let's all start using the phrase "God-myth" instead of the word "God" from now on

If all atheists started saying "God-myth" instead of "God" we might be able to finally change the obsession of our country with religion. This would force believers to have to prove what they are referring to day in and day out. They would have to present objective evidence for their god and for their claim that he gave them the right to rule over society or else continue to hear us say "God-myth" each and every time.
