I don't understand that link at all--they look like random quotes, nothing replying to anything. But then again, I don't tweet and think those that do mostly never really left high school mentally.

There really needs to be an IQ test for voters.

I largely agree--especially when they are 70+ geezers with more important things to do.

Oh, she was jjk's hero for a long while--a (neo) conservative columnist for the Washington Post. He loved to share her wisdom and insights with us.

Understood your point.
I just like watching your posts sprouting wings and flying over the heads of many.

Agree and I really do not find any humor in it.

Jennifer Rubin has a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. She's become as useless as 90% of the other WaPo idiots. It was pretty bizarre, like she threw a switch from moderate conservative to loony left and I stopped reading her stuff which changed from well reasoned insider info to [smilie=042.gif] overnight. Maybe she did it to keep her job. The whole paper has taken on a Silicon Valley elitist progressive atmosphere since Jeff Bezos bought it and that's gotten much, much worse since Trump was elected.

They are doing it to make money. Anti-Trump sentiment sells, and sells big. Money drives the news industry; always has and always will.

But this kind of BS is just plain weird! It is so divorced from reality you can understand why newspapers are hemorrhaging money. The Washington Post seems to be in a race for the bottom with the NY Times.

“Syria’s Assad has become an icon of the far right in America,” from Liz Sly and Rick Noack in Beirut: “Assad’s politics — and those of his father before him — have historically been associated more with the left than the right. … In recent months, however, Assad has become an icon also for the far right, whose leaders and spokesman have heaped praise on the ferocity with which he has prosecuted the war, his role in fighting the Islamic State and his perceived stance against Muslims and Jews. That Assad’s harsh methods have resulted in tens of thousands of civilian casualties seems only to have enhanced his stature.”

I would suggest that the reason newspapers are losing money is the internet.

Do you regularly read the New York Times? Have you been reading it all these years and noticed a change, or is it just that you are now seeing some articles quoted elsewhere?

Personally, I don't know anyone that reads the NYT on a daily basis, or really ever that I know of. My parents used to read the newspaper, the Miami Herold and the St Petersburg Times when I was growing up because we lived there. I would subscribe to the WSJ, but it's too costly. I read the Sunday paper over breakfast; not every week, but it is a sort of Sunday ritual.

I do the crossword every day and check the obits on Sunday. Does that count?

We get the Sunday print edition only, so my wife can have the crossword as well. The only section I read is the arts and entertainment. However getting the Sunday edition alone gets me free online access to the rest of the paper all week, so I see a lot of stuff there.

If I still lived in Cuba I would subscribe to them since we didn't had toilet paper.

William Kristol is another Jew who turned. There's been a ton of suppposedly right wing jews who have flipped, even though there's no sign Trump is an anti-semite in any way.

Trump is seemingly well liked by the current Israeli government.
