About Wayne A. Schneider

I'm a Liberal, Libertarian, Atheist Humanist. I believe that though the world is a dangerous place, it can be made better if we stop dividing ourselves by how we're different from each other, and reach out to each other through what we have in common. And that is that we are all human beings on this planet. Please remember that.

  1. I no longer have DVR, but I’m pretty sure I just heard Nikki Haley call the North Korean missile tests, ‘attacks’. (on ABC)

    • Haley’s basic talking point for the day is ‘other ambassadors are talking about how America is starting to lead again’.

      • Lead in what? Bullshit Tweets? Yes, indeedy, no one can hold a candle to the sheer flood of bullshit tweets emanating from the GrateWhiteHouse

    • From the transcript:

      RADDATZ: And if China doesn’t cooperate?

      HALEY: Oh, no, China has to cooperate. This is now down to do we want to continue to see these ballistic missile attacks from North Korea or does China want to do something about it?

      And this is all about the fact that they need to have action. And we’re going to continue to put pressure on China to have action. That will be shown in multiple ways.

      It worries me, on top of all else in the Trump Administration, that our UN Ambassador can’t articulate the difference between an ordnance test and a direct aggression.

  2. Have the Republicans made the Russian hackers’ job easier for future intervention of US elections, with their law allowing ISPs to sell browser histories?

  3. Best article and quote of the young week.
    From the Hill –
    Republican failure
    Salient quotes
    “Despite all the bragging about his talents, despite predicting an endless series of “wins,” despite crowning himself the ultimate “deal-maker,” despite his unsurpassed narcissism and his unrelenting ego, Donald Trump failed last week.”
    “He blamed the GOP Freedom Caucus for its ideological commitment without recognizing the herculean feats required of the Democratic troika to bring together their own disparate factions behind the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the first instance.
    The real culprits include Trump himself, as well as Republican congressional leaders, who voted over 50 times to repeal ObamaCare without giving any meaningful thought to how it might actually be replaced.”
    and finally,
    “At a deeper level, though, part of his defeat arises from Trump’s failure to truly comprehend the nature of the job to which he has acceded.
    To hear Trump tell the story, the president is a “deal-maker.” In fact, the job requires being a leader.”

    No SHIT. The fake president has no EFFING idea what or how to govern, lead or otherwise help this nation survive his egregious malfeasance.

  4. Another interesting tidbit in the Hill this evening.
    Apparently Jared Kushner is traveling with the Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Dunford, visiting Iraq.
    Word to Mr.Kushner:
    If your father in law accidently calls you Uriah, run like hell.. Just sayin.
