I would argue that there are often more than two sides. One of the problems with our two-party system is that it ignores this fact.

Now that is a picture.

No there aren't.

A right side and a wrong side.

Another great capture of blues.

There are 3 sides to every story: yours, mine and ...the truth.

... there are 2 sides to every question.

So say talking heads on "news" shows and newspaper scribblers. Then follows the presumption that one must be right and the other wrong. By careful choice of evidence, the "right" and "wrong" sides are deftly insinuated.

Bullshit. There are as many "sides" to every question as people in the room.

Nonetheless, a lovely picture.

Can you believe that after Comey humiliated himself for the Clintons, Billy Jeff comes out and throws him under the bus? Of course you can, it's SOP for the Clintons!

Then Billy says that no national security matters were discussed in the emails, but when the emails were released, it was disclosed to the Iranians that a certain Iranian scientist had helped us. He was already in prison, but after the emails were released, he was dragged out and hanged.

I guess it is not a matter of national security to protect those who help us.

“Women know that this is an unfair attack on Hillary, and that’s why it continues to exist in this small corner of the right-wing media world,” said Marcy Stech, vice president of communications at the political action committee Emily’s List.
Broaddrick has repeatedly said that she’s not politically motivated. She insists she has no plans to join Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign and says she’s only voting for him because she doesn’t want the man she claims raped her — and the woman she believes enabled him — back in the White House. She voted for Barack Obama in 2008 for the same reason, she said.
“For somebody to choose to make me valid…that’s nice.”
But even if Broaddrick doesn’t want to admit it, she’s become increasingly cozy with conservatives


Doesn't she know that she will not be considered a true liberal if she doesn't just shut up and take one for the team? If she keeps talking, and the only people who will listen to her are conservatives... well, then she must be just out to get Clinton for purely political reasons. Even though she, like most or all of Bill's victims in that era, was one of his supporters!

She has five witnesses that could be sent to jail if they were proven to be liars. Including her friend who found her bleeding with torn clothes in the hotel room. Bill Clinton has, or more likely had, records of where he was that day, and he was likely accompanied the whole day by a security detail in some proximity to him. They would have logs, he would have a schedule.

The fact that this is only a story in the right wing media is a testament to the extent that the media will go to any length to protect the Clintons.

This is such a fucking travesty.

I would like to hear the other side of the above, BTW, if any liberals, like sunsong, for example, is up for it.

Some computer experts and Democrats in Congress believe both websites—the Guccifer 2.0 WordPress page and DCLeaks.com—have ties to Russian intelligence services and that the sites are using hacked information to try to influence the November elections.

The precise motives of the entities controlling these webpages cannot be learned because their identities are unclear.


Don't the two paragraphs above contradict each other?

U.S. officials[Dempcratic Strategists] are now debating whether to publicly accuse the Russian government of conducting the attacks, two people familiar with the deliberations said, though no final decision about how to proceed has been made.

“I certainly believe that this is a coordinated Russian effort against the U.S. political process,” said Rep. Jim Himes (D., Conn.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, in an interview Sunday. “It’s an act of hostility by a foreign power.”


Maybe it is like Assange says, maybe it's peace activists who hate war and by extension, hate Hat Trick Hillary (Iraq, Syria, Libya)! Naah! Preposterous.

Why did Hillary drag us into a proxy war with Russia in the first place? Would it be a terrible thing if we elected somebody who wasn't into proxy wars? Sunsong? R&B?

Plus the evergreen headline: "They are attacking us by letting everybody know the truth!"

The Clinton campaign has removed a pledge from its website stating that all survivors of sexual assault “have the right to be believed.”

- Tee hee hee, right sunsong?
