Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If your identity is invested in a lie, you can reject the truth every day, all day, and you will.

No president in recent history has been despised more viscerally by the Beltway press corps than Trump. Nearly everything he says is met with disdain and suspicion, even when he is telling the truth.

But when Trump and his administration attempt to lie the public into war against a designated evildoer, a swath of the corporate media responds with reflexive trust, then shrugs when the lie is exposed in broad daylight.

It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

One of my all time favorite quotes.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."

Have you lost your mind? I mean, how is it that you can disrespect a man's ethnicity when you know we've influenced nearly every facet of white America. From our music to our style of dress, not to mention your basic imitation of our sense of cool; walk, talk, dress, mannerisms. We enrich your very existence, all the while contributing to the gross national product through our achievements in corporate America. It's these conceits that comfort me when I'm faced with the ignorant, cowardly, bitter and bigoted who have no talent, no guts. People like you who desecrate things they don't understand when the truth is you should just say "thank you, man," and go about your way. But, apparently, you're incapable of doing that. So.

Then when do you say it is better to do these things? Tell me where you draw the line.
