    What, that they, too should have the presumption of innocence? Yes, of course. That is, when indicted for crimes in a US civilian court.

    My whole take on ISIS is that they were simply criminals, and not really worthy of the type of military response baby Bush and Cheney had. Especially invading Iraq on lies, which had NOTHING to do with ISIS or Al Queda.

    Our response should have been a limited series of overwhelming air strikes to wipe out every training camp in Afghanistan. Followed by small teams of special forces to hunt and take others prisoner. No occupation. No ground invasion. Use the special forces to bring them back for trial. Then a global criminal dragnet to bring the rest of the miscreants to justice. In court.

    Look, I don’t care for Bernie. He seems like a crotchety, grumpy old man. The kind of guy who yells: “Hey you kids get offa my lawn or I’ll call the cops.”

    But he’s infinitely better than a psychopathic malignant narcissist with ADD, and he has released his taxes, so this is a non issue.

    Durak, in our legal system one cannot “prove” innocence. The government can only fail to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That’s the mechanism behind “innocent until proven guilty.” There is a presumption of innocence, not guilt. Assange doesn’t have to “prove” anything to be found not guilty.

    Let the government prove his guilt.

    Daniel Kimmel, Sanders released ten years of taxes yesterday. Both sides are NOT to blame. That’s just silly talk, directly from propaganda spewing forth from the regressives. Goebbels would be proud.

    Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, military spending, FDA, SEC, Federal Reserve, Forest Service, crop supports, CHIP, AFDC, EPA, NIH, FHA, food stamps, TSA, on and on.

    We live in a VERY complex and interdependent society. So called big government is actually necessary to deal with it.

    I would cut the military in order to massively fund early childhood education and nutrition. Taking care of babies and children would be among my highest priorities. But since the warmongers are still in ascendency, that’s not possible. They would rather kill and posture than take care of babies. Of course, they don’t care about REAL babies, only the POTENTIAL babies who are not born. Real babies are put in cages at the border.

    This toon is typical of regressives, though. Simple, dumb statements that elide all ambiguity and are designed to hoodwink the gullible and ignorant who seek simple solutions where none exist.

    Nope. Not buying into psychopathic malignant narcissism with ADD.

    Has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with amoral mental illness.

    You want to debate policy. Fine. Do so. You want to defend a definitively mentally ill “leader.” Go ahead. But I refuse.

    Sorry if I offended you Mikefive. I was over the top.

    However, the sheer volume of lies and transgressions by the current administration needs to be called out…especially when attempting to compare this “president” to any in modern history.

    This is NOT normal. This is NOT what “they all do.”

    Sorry to have offended you.

    Nope, Jeffiekins, not buying it. Unlike you, I know the difference between a pattern of unprecedented boldfaced lies (from whoppers to little lies) and the shading of the facts every human being does.

    Truth matters. And no, all politicians do NOT lie like trump. That is simply a lie in and of itself. Goebbels would be proud.

    Your cynicism is part of what’s destroying America. Well, that and your complete lack of discernment and proportion.

    Mikefive is grasping at straws to compare one individual to the enormous cluster of felons, frauds, tax cheats and traitors who have worked, and continue to work for tiny. That is, until they get fired by the resident psychopath.

    This is yet another example of the incredible number of false equivalencies promoted by those who cannot discern the difference between the EXTREMELY RARE instances of criminality demonstrated by the ENTIRE Obama administration, and the hourly transgressions demonstrated by the current psychopathic resident of the WH.

    In contrast to the squeaky clean Obamas, the current administration is absolutely STUFFED with felons, liars, miscreants, and low-life incompetents. This is factual, not political. This is character and integrity vs. psychopathy, ignorance, and complete amorality.

    Back to the drawing board, Mike, you’ve got a “timber” in your eyes completely blinding you, while you complain about the teeny little dust particle in someone else’s eye.
