One of my many activities is acting in Conversations Across Time, broadcast over PhilyCAM, the public access channel of Philadelphia (Verizon channel 29, Comcast channel 66). The format is that we portray historical figures discussing contemporary issues, like immigration, nuclear arms, poverty, etc. In this show I have portrayed John Foster Dulles, Roy Cohn, J. Edgar Hoover, Henry Kissinger, George Wallace, Lyndon Johnson, and Horace Greeley, among others. I urge you to look at the show and think about the issues they discuss.
via Harley-Davidson will move some production out of US after retaliatory tariffs
THIS is how tRump makes America great again, by making it an international pariah? How many of those Harley workers will lose their jobs due to this? But his enablers in the Republican party will spin it so he blames someone else, like the Democrats or MS-13.

This is the Winter white House our business whiz commander in chief brings foreign leaders to, with all the rotting food and mold, among other things.

The former Republican offers a decisive case for voting Democratic in the midterms.

Why would anyone wear this to a crisis situation? This isn’t just a simple fashion faux pas.First Lady Melania Trump, in a desperate attempt to soften the impact of her husbands cruel and reckless immigration policies, traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday to visit children detained by the federal government. Amidst nationwide controversy and outcry against the capricious decisions President Donald Trump has made that led to thousands of children being ripped away from their parents, the first lady wore a jacket that said in white paint, ‘I really don’t care, do u?’Seriously.
