Manafort is lying because he fears the Russian mob more than spending his life in jail.

That's what Trump fears, too. The Russian mafia is an arm of the FSB...so much so that there is little distinction from the perspective of the IC. There are no rules. They have and will kill who they please. That's what everybody involved here is truly scared of. Just sayin...

I'm bummed, I'll admit it. I've waited for two years for tonight.

I'm so disappointed in people. At least we will eventually go extinct or evolve out of this state.

I just can't believe how many of our neighbors support what the GOP has become. We are absolutely in a living distopia. I will make peace and move on by morning, but for tonight I dutifully embrace this moment and dine on my bitter disappointment and drink in the dissolution.

Cheers!

Fuck Sean Spicer

He is STILL sliming and deflecting his way around admitting that he knowingly lied for Trump. This interview with SE Cupp is supposed to be his launch of apology/rebranding tour? Fuck him. Fuck his lies. Fuck the entire Republican Party. Fuck Donald Trump. Fuck him.

...and anybody who supports, enables, or spins his poison.

Fuck them all. Im so sick of this protracted execution of our country and culture.

The rot is deep...

We are an anti-intellectual society. It is the same collective cognitive investment and justifications that gave us facebook and considers Beyonc a definitive and respectable artist (despite there being 72 song writer credits on her latest album...can anybody guess how many credits Coltrain needed?... or Pink Floyd? Or Kurt Cobain?) that gave us President Trump. The logical conclusion of American Idol and social media culture was ALWAYS going to be where we are now. Trump, or some anti-intellectual Demi-god was inevitable. Garbage in, garbage out...reaping and sowing and such...

Education is the only way out of this. It will take several generations to truly fix this. And only if we fully own it and make a 180 turn NOW.

Im honestly not too optimistic thats about to happen.

Its gonna get a lot worse first, Friends.

Hold tight.

Skl!

What the hell is going on with Erin Burnett?!

Poor thing... Is she trying to channel Huckabee-Sanders tonight? Her right eye looks...well, like Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Shes looked sick for a week or two, but tonight I was shocked to see her.

They seem to be going out of their way to keep her off camera.

Hope shes okay.

Only thing worse than being sick is being transformed into anything resembling SHS...

Kelly just revealed himself to be quite the Dominionist

Anybody else catch him reminiscing about how this country used to supposedly hold women, religion, and morality as sacred...implying that we no longer do?!... implying that all the progress made for women in the past generation has served to undermine them?

W O W

He just showed his true colors. He's right where he belongs. All of you hoping he's the sane one, suffer your illusions no longer. He

He doesn't argue for any physiological changes.

Think of our brain, the actual physical matter of it, as the hardware of a computer; motherboard, video card, processors, etc... Subjectivity is the current software program that we are running on our biological hardware. Jaynes description of what he calls the "bicameral mind" was the program our species previously utilized before the complexity of metaphorical language created the internal mind space for the subjective experience to arise. While Jaynes does not address it, you can easily extrapolate his theory to postulate an even more ancient "software" program that predated and evolved into bicameralism, and ever onward into our primal past; all progressing through processes of natural selection to eventually begat our modern hyper-subjectivity...driven now ever onward by the abstractions our communications media age.

Trumps body language just now as he took some questions is telling...

As soon as he stopped talking and started taking questions he crossed his arms tightly, and they remained tightly crossed until he finished allowing questions.

Obviously he feels isolated and attacked and was preparing to isolate himself from the truth even further. This subconscious tell demonstrates how vulnerable he feels.

He's so transparent and is utterly oblivious to it.

I have to disagree

I understand the spirit of your post, but there is a very distinct difference between education and indoctrination. Words matter. Now more than ever. You shouldn't conflate the two terms. Education is the only answer....and that's only because you can't prescribe enlightenment.

I stand by my assessment.

It is a terribly fraught situation

We have enshrined and upheld the idea of "free speech" to such a point that it may ultimately be our downfall. I believe we are past the point of no return. The only way to properly address the sheer volume of misinformation, hate, and divisiveness that the RW media juggernaut poison us with is to censor them... the very antithesis of free speech.

The unfortunate fact is that there are just far too many uneducated, partially educated, or religiously (un)educated people in this country. An educated society, a culture that valued education and knowledge would never have elected Trump or even allowed him in the race for our highest and most important office.

We are what we eat, so to speak. This country has been bindge feeding on reality TV, consumptive economic excesses, and social media abstractions nonstop for nearly 20 years... and in the case of the economic consumptiveness, for far longer. How anyone is surprised that we're an illiterate and obese nation led by a deranged carnival barker only illustrates my point that we had this coming.

What really bothers me is imagining the world my two young daughters are coming of age in. They will have to either be revolutionaries, hounded by authorities, or they will be lost in the mindless meat grinder. Neither is a fate you wish on a child.
