Gotham City Digest

(Where we never say, "Russia, if you're listening...")

     We desperately and I mean DESPERATELY need more cops like this. This is what law enforcement used to do in the 19th century. When the Boston PD was founded in 1854 and the NYPD in 1846, they regularly coordinated charity drives aimed at feeding and clothing the indigent. Law enforcement needs to get back to this.

     And then, there are the cops who serve just themselves. Seriously, is there anything or anyone more corrupt than an Alabama Sheriff?

     Why is it that white assholes like the Trumps are always the first ones to pull the race card?

     The cancer Luis Alvarez had contracted at Ground Zero was so aggressive, even 69 rounds of chemo couldn't save him. RIP, Brave Man.

     Food for thought abo    ut delusional and hypocritical Zionists.

     The author makes a good point here. NBC didn't even think enough about minority voting rights to put it on the agenda either night. But hardly any of the 20 even gave it lip service. Yet one thing is screamingly obvious- We wouldn't have nearly as many Republicans as we now have infesting the political landscape and there wouldn't be nearly as many Republican majorities if it wasn't for right wing gerrymandering. Because if they had an actual mandate, they wouldn't have to resort to such dirty tricks.

     And while we're on the subject- John Roberts obviously thinks more of free speech for billionaires than that of average voters. Thanks, Bush, you fucking asshole. Here's a quote from Charlie Pierce- "Once you've legalized bribery and influence-peddling, and declared the Day of Jubilee on which racism had vanished entirely from our election procedures, legalizing gerrymandering is a pretty easy lift."

     So what did Sonny the Sponge think was going to result from murdering his own father? That the gravy train was going to magically reappear in the station?

     Here's the story of a guy who took "Take Your Daughter to Work Day" a little literally.

     Remember when the British had to use icons to convey to tRump what was to take place and when during his itinerary?
     Apparently, the Japanese were taking notes.

     One more time: Trump is an avowed enemy of everything that is good and decent.

     Make Russian totalitarianism great again.

     Once more with feeling: Concentration camps. The German press wasn't allowed in Hitler's, either.

     "And just hours after Carter’s comment, Trump again made light of Russia's meddling attempts. While meeting with Vladimir Putin at the G-20 summit in Japan, Trump turned to the Russian president and said jokingly, 'Don't meddle in the election, president. Don't meddle in the election.' Putin, after appearing to hear the translation, laughed while Trump grinned."
      In case he hasn't made it obvious enough to you people at home.

     So this is what "liberal" NBC had to say about the debates. Of course, opinions were advanced by the right wing nutters "liberal" NBC keeps hiring.

     And still more in-depth analysis from the corporate MSM and right wing nutjobs. The right wingers criticizing Yang for not wearing a tie are probably the same ones who blew a gasket when Barack wore a tan suit and Michelle showed her arms.

     From last year but still worth a read.

     This Bonobo ape is already smarter than any Republican on Capitol Hill.

     Today in Fantasy Dialogue:
     "We're not going to pay through the nose for doing our jobs."
     "Then you can't stay at my beautiful hotel!"
     "Fine. Have fun. Just run between the bullets. We're sure you'll be fine."

     Elizabeth Warren stepped in it Wednesday night and no one realized it. Despite being the longest-running candidate (he's been running since July 2017) and having no chance at the nomination, Delaney nonetheless put Warren in a trap by exposing the huge flaw in her plan to get rid of private insurance entirely. Hospitals would simply go broke even if she could pull that off.

     The fucking MSM is already asking Sanders when he's going to stop being old and in the way. Like the Machine Democrats, they have learned absolutely NOTHING since 2016.

     True to form, Donnie Douchebag just couldn't keep his tiny thumbs off his phone about the Democratic debates.

     This is fucking outrageous. The victim's indicted but the shooter who killed the fetus gets off scot free.

     So, what IS God's trademark? A boot on a human neck?

     I truly hate to remind my UK readers but this brain-dead oaf may very well be your next Prime Minister.

     "Trump Lashes Out After Mueller Agrees to Testify to Congress." Of course he did. Twat.

     "Have you ever violated the Hatch Act?" "Yes sir!" "You're hired!"

     Here's what you can do to help in the migrants' struggle.

     But, yeah. Let's keep ragging on my Senator, Elizabeth Warren claiming to be Cherokee.

     I'll believe it when I see it. I hate it to say it but I have to agree with Sekulow when he predicts Mueller won't say anything to Congress that he hadn't already said in his report. Mueller made that clear in his rather disappointing presser a few weeks ago in which he concluded that he was not going to speak publicly on this matter ever again.

     That's right- We'd save $18 a day per migrant child if we put them up in a luxury Trump hotel.

     Oregon is open for business... sort of.

     How responsible is a people for its government's actions? We elect these officials, sure, but we don't write the policies. I disagree with this guy. We ARE better than this. We're just not that good on election day since US politics has a long history of bait & switch. We elect these self-interested jackals to do one thing and then they do something horrifying.

     Three and out. Couldn't have happened to a better Nazi network.

     Hear that, kids? The Republican nut bag says you're free to leave. Just walk out of the repurposed Walmart whenever you feel like it and just waltz past the armed guards.

     Truly great thinkers like Hannah Arendt always find some way to become relevant every generation or so because truly awful thinkers have the same talent.

     If this isn't emblematic of typical Republican toxic masculinity, I don't know what is.

     WWJD? I can't speak for him but I know what I'd do.

     As AOC said, this is what solidarity looks like. Good on these folks in Massachusetts.

     If this doesn't break your heart, then you don't have one.

     I'm amazed DeNiro didn't get a piece of this action. After all, he did it several times on SNL. And finally...

     Shorter Trump: "I only rape those who ARE my type."

Hospitals are bleeding money and going broke under the current system. New York has lost 20 of them in recent years. Maybe not all were due to financial problems, but many were.
