      A laugh from Andy Borowitz:

      If a Trump supporter tries to lure you into an argument, don’t take the bait. Say, “This colloquy will not engender a rapprochement.” That will end things very quickly.

    KOCH brothers
    have had their tentacles into every corner of American life for decades:
    “Koch’s academic operations are intended to develop extreme anti-government ideas and actions in students by exposing them to the Austrian school of economics and its various offshoots,” Ralph Wilson, co-founder of the Corporate Genome Project and former research director of UnKoch My Campus, told Sludge/Right Wing Watch. “These ideologies make moral arguments for free markets using an overly individualistic notion of ‘freedom’ that has fed and capitalized on the anti-social impulses of frustrated youth for several generations, including white nationalists, paleo-conservatives, neo-confederates, and neo-Nazis.”

    “Not a Straight White Man? U.S. Religious Conservatives Are Coming for You”
    “Unless you are part of the narrow demographic of rich, white men deemed to have rights in 1776,
    this new Trump administration commission won’t protect you.”

      “Any schoolchild in the United States knows that the US Declaration of Independence guarantees individuals’ rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”….Now, imagine what these principles mean for right-wingers and religious fundamentalists: where “life” refers to fetuses; “liberty” includes the prerogative to discriminate against LGBTIQ people; and “the pursuit of happiness” is reserved for straight, white patriarchs.”
      –The Christian Right turning “philosophy” into policy.
      –Where straight white men have all the power and women are subordinate, or you’re an abomination.
      –Thus you should not existt…..shoot ’em up.

    Beto O’Rourke talking to Joy Reid:
    “The kind of place Donald Trump has warned the rest of America about, talking about invasions and caravans and Mexican immigrants being rapists and criminals despite the fact that El Paso is one of the safest cities in the United States of America today and has been for the last 20 years. So joy I’m saying that there is a connection between this racism and this rhetoric including from the president and what we saw in El Paso yesterday.
    We have to put an end to it.”

    Trump Is To Blame For El Paso Shooting”

    (https://www.politicususa.com/2019/08/04/democrats-demand-emergency-senate-session-after-el-paso-and-dayton-mass-shootings.html)
    Schumer:
    “When President Trump spends more time and energy denouncing Rep. Elijah Cummings and Baltimore than he does denouncing right-wing extremists who often traffic in hate and white nationalism, it shows his priorities are un-American and way off balance.”

    Meanwhile white supremacist McCarthy blames video games.
    Oh. Oops. Japan has the record for video game market:
    Thanks to quality of life and strict gun laws, Japan has the lowest rate of gun violence in the developed world.
    The Japanese gave up their guns voluntarily due to violence associated with war.
    Today gun laws are very strict in Japan and they reap the rewards.

    Happy Birthday 🥳 Barack Obama. You are still so young. How about another go round? Just wishful thinking. Wish you all the best as you try to help make the world a better place. You are much appreciated.

    President Barack Obama is the 1st climate president.
    From 2016:
    “The US has become a world leader on climate change, dramatically increased our production of clean and renewable fuels, reduced our emissions of greenhouse gases, signed major international agreements to continue progress into the future, and have done so without cost increases or power disruptions that the denial community proclaimed would occur.”
