If Moores racism hadn't trumped his pedophilia, he'd be a senator today


If eight African American women had come out against Roy Moore, their voices wouldn't of been heard, because Moore is a god fearing, good old Roy and in Alabama black lives don't matter, but their votes apparently do. The African American voters showed up in force and enough white folk spoiled their ballots or stayed at home to give Jones the win.


The Democrats or the American people for that matter should not be over celebrating the Alabama Senate seat election results, not when you consider the effort that was required to barely beat a homophobe bigot and proud racist who was facing pedophilia accusations. Trump still sits in the White House and many of the women that came out with their stories against Roy Moore, voted for Trump in the last election. Did they not believe Trump's accusers or hear his boasts in the Access media tape? Did they only watch Fox news? Who knows, but the US is one messed up country.

Then just when you are ready to write these backwards people off, you hear the voice of another Alabama good old boy and just think there might yet be hope.

Nathan Mathis, an Alabama peanut farmer stood outside Moore's last rally with a sign asking voters to not vote for a pervert. Nathan Mathis daughter was gay and she killed herself. Watching the video you can see his pain and hear his own guilt in the role he may have played in her death


Or maybe you have to loose someone or something that you love, before you really change and if that is the case, there are still many dark days ahead for the Americans.

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.

662

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.
