Villanous Tab-Clearing

Let's begin with a couple of reports in the NY Times today:

The Russians are deliberately bombing hospitals in Syria. They are using a UN list of medical facilities, part of what essentially is a "no-bomb list" to target them. But since Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council and Putin is butt-buddies with Trump, there's as much consequence for Russian war crimes as there has been for Russian or Chinese war crimes.

Second, why is Tulsi Gabbard the darling of the same groups of people who support Trump: American Nazis, libertarian nutjobs and the Russians?

Why is it that when corporations and individuals reach a certain amount of wealth and power, they automatically turn into Bond villians? Google, Amazon, Zuckerberg, the Koch Brothers?

Wow, who would have though you could get free animated GIF’s and a virus in the same place, eh? Persistent, ain’t they.

You seen the Fort Worth shooting by cop? Worth a look, and it helps explain why the 2nd isn’t as valued within the black community. The cops will shot you if you have one, legal or not. Now, shooting people in their homes, or homes they legally belong in, isn’t new, but it sure seems to happen way to often to minorities vs whites. Any way, the cops are already trying to spin it.

Tulsi is playing the same tune the bots were playing to Bernie supporters last time: "IT'S RIGGED, I TELL YOU, RIGGED!!!"
Like last time, it won't work in the primary, but will give Fergus ammunition for attacks in the general.
When you consider that Stein got more votes in the three states that tipped the '16 election than Fergus' victory margin, Tulsi could indeed get Fergus elected again if we let her.

To be fair, Jeff Bezos of Amazon has always resembled a supervillain. Lex Luthor was modeled after him. Or was it the other way around? :)
