they got away with planting misinformation withh this "transcript"

of his perfect conversation. To most of us, a transcript is an exact copy of what was said. Like what a stenographer would produce from a recording. This is a SUMMARY, not a transcript! Who the hell knows the exact content after being edited and censored by Barr and his other twisted pricks?

Americans have A RIGHT to listen to the original recording. This transcript is very well executed MISINFORMATION!

Didn't Roger Stone have a hand in this plot?

The right wing hit squad did their job brilliantly. They got other Democratic pols to witch hunt Al into resignation, taking out ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT DEMOCRATIC MINDS we had in D.C.!

It was infuriating because, as an average loyal DU reader, DU provided me with enough links to determine the entire plot was based on BULLSHIT. And I had to watch Senate Dems obediently follow the path set forth by republic dirty tricksters, who are excellent at what they do and Dems naively take the bait......repeatedly.

I hope Al goes on to write editorials, do talk shows and be a talking head on the news show circuit. Chit chat with the Morning Joe Crew and Rachel kind of stuff.

I don't like supporting good Dems that stupidly kangaroo court one of our best out of the Senate. They got totally p'owned.

My hero since the Oct 16, 1971 Stony Brook late show.

to put it succinctly, I liked his values as much as his music. Learned a lot, enhanced my critical thinking skills. An inspirational national treasure that took a stand against conservatives and televangilists aggressively in his lifetime and art. There were times in his life where his raw courage and absolute faith in his principles and basic intelligence were awe inspiring to me.

I like that

Definate Facebook Wall meme material.

Ironies: The snowball that triggered the smears about Franken was engineered in some of not most parts, by Roger Stone. I have to research how many other Atwateresque ratfucking plots Rogers been a part of since his involvement with Nixon Republicans in Nixon's time? Ratfucking is his life's work. If there were justice he'd be pay per view Khashoggi-ed.

If my memory is accurate, Al's questioning of Jeff Sessions about something I forgot, caused Sessions to recuse himself from the Russia Investigations. Where would Democracy be right now if that had not happened?

The witch hunt railroading he was victim of is ugly and a great example of, from the vantage of recent history, a really fucking STUPID thing to do! What the hell did Dems gain by having done this? Was justice well served? In my own unwise youth, I've done much worse, relatively. Al's life is testimony to his honorable family man, of the people, serve the best interests of as many people as possible upstanding citizen would make a responsible babysitter you could feel safe leaving your kids with kinda guy.

I've liked Al since Franken and Davis SNL days. Got some of his books, donated to his Senate Campaign. Overjoyed and inspired by his performance in the Senate.

Articles like this could change the course of history for the better yet again. Americans need to know just how cruel and inhuman these Trump monsters really are!

His family and descendants will be subjected to this far-more-egregious-than-Benedict-Arnold legacy for as long as recorded history still exists.

The way these lifelong elites make their career decisions is beyond my comprehension.

And it's way to late for me to "go sociopath". I could not bring myself to do what they do. I'm cursed with this basic sense of human decency.

Why take a lifetime bullet for such a loathsome crime family?

My Connecticut Reps Social Security forum last Friday......

I went to a talk about Social Security at the Bristol Connecticut Senior Center last Friday. Hosted by Congressman John Larson and Senator Richard Blumenthal. It was on very short notice because DC is so erratic it’s had to do any planning. I was fortunate to find out on a FB “events” link the day before, the only place on the internet I could find.

Both my reps have been working for YEARS on reforming SS to make it fairer and make the benefits more in line with the sad state of most retirement plans these days. (including my own) They are “dropping” the bills next week. (and we got an explanation of what “dropping” meant – delivering a written bill for consideration by the whole body. They could not get their bill past this stage for nine years!)

Lots of Vets asking questions. I go to these things to let my reps know about what I think is important for these times, and I try to distill to one or two points, instead of the encyclopedic list that as a concerned liberal I have. I spoke to them after the presentation, as my burning interests were off topic.

My first POINT: Please don’t invade Venezuela. We are sick of war for oil and botched regime change.

My second POINT: Can you tell please tell me what the benefit was to America for our invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan? Both their jaws dropped, and it was a few awkward seconds before they could offer a response which was, approximately, “yeah, remember all that fuss about WMD’s?” So, I said the people that lied us into those wars still walk free instead of being prosecuted for WAR CRIMES. We can no longer tolerate such criminality from our elected leaders, and they must be prosecuted for breaking the laws! (In other words, if Trump and Republicans that have been bribed by Russian money skate for their treason THIS TIME. All is lost, because the next morbidly wealthy narcissistic sociopath that gets in will doom the future of the entire planet.)

My first engagement with Congressman Larson was in early 2003 when he gave a talk before the Iraq Invasion began. I told him I’d prefer THE MAFIA in the White House to GWB and Company because the people running the Mafia ARE MORE HONORABLE than the GWB White House.

I still marvel when history clearly shows Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld etc. brazenly lied IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE WORLD about justification for invading Iraq. They walk free and the best we can do now is get a fucking movie about it! A retrospective about Queen was entertaining. A retrospective about how evil GWB and company was is UTTERLY HORRIFYING, because whoever tops their evil in the near future is going to turn our country into a totalitarian fascist police state!

10 Signs You're Actually Following TRUMPianity Instead of CHRISTianity

I waste a lot of time on my Facebook addiction and have 300+ friends after maybe 9 years of it. friends, neighbors, church people, car people, liberals, conservatives, Zappa fans, people where i grew up and went to school with, and so on.

The ill informed OUTRIGHT PREJUDICE against libs/dems can be utterly preposterous. What they believe about "us" is outrageous and untrue. Here's some of their "conventional wisdom" I see on my wall when I post my provocative meme's and links;

Dems support illegal immigration because those illegals will vote Democratic once they're in

Planned Parenthood aborts babies for profit by chopping them up and selling the body parts

In the last election, Dems rigged voting machines, destroyed paper ballots, cast votes on blank ballots, registered non-citizens to vote and ignore overseas military ballots.

Republics care for the unborn child and Democrats DO NOT.

Shouldn't Planned Parenthood do something else besides abortions - like provide for women's health and birth control?

Dems want the death penalty only for unborn children, but not rapists, murderers and other serious criminality.

global climate change is some kind of plot by Dems and humans are absolutely not responsible for it. It's just normal.

And on and on.

Feel free to list the PREJUDICES you all may have encountered about us evil rotten godless bastard Democrats that only want whats wrong for America and want us all to fail and suffer.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland.
