Wow! A recent poll showed 41% of Trump supporters approved of bombing the fictional city of Agrabah.
This shows that the evilness of a significant number of Trump supporters is matched only by their stupidity.
It is evil to want to bomb a city you know nothing about.
Scared-of-their-shadow Republicans (and a few Democrats) are trying to block Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. They must not be allowed to win for the following reasons.
Steven Colbert did a great thing. That's not news. Steven Colbert does a lot of great things. But this may be one of the best things he has done.

As a teenager, I would go after people with rocks, and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers. And, of course, many people know the story when I was 14 and I tried to stab someone.
Last year I wrote about Israel's claim that it has the most moral army in the world. A video from a October 7 showing how the IDF handled stone throwing Palestinians now prompts me to re-examine that claim. Actually, I should modify my statement that the stone throwers were Palestinian. Some of them were actually undercover IDF or border police officers. It is impossible to tell from these videos whether the IDF/border police officers instigated the stone throwing or were merely blending in with a crowd of Palestinians who were already throwing stones. In either case, watch as an undercover soldier shoots a Palestinian in the leg as he is is being restrained by two fellow officers.

To which I say, "Guilty as charged!" I make no pretense that this is a balanced presentation. But I present to you this unbalanced picture for two reasons.
