A dry throat does not caused slurred speech, no matter what Dr. Sanders says.
We'll see how the GOP deals with his stroke.....and you don't get a physical for a dry throat.

Interesting that you, as a physician, think it could be a stroke. That was my thought as a layperson.

Of course, we would never see a medical report stating such.

Cowboy: the Democratic party has its problem, but itís not nearly as bad as you paint it. Iím receptive to your idea about a party of moderates but in the short run, the Democratic Party is the only viable party that can check the republicans.

I would not vote for impeachment yet either.

There are slicker and prettier web sites with far larger audiences peddling other kinds of black experience and consciousness, profitably delivering black eyeballs to corporate marketers.

These outlets do not challenge cherished beliefs.


If the news that black Libyans and black migrants from sub-Saharan Africa were being sold as slaves in Libya was a surprise to you, then you were not reading Black Agenda Report during the 2011-2012 NATO intervention in that country. We covered it. Almost everybody refused to question US foreign policy in Africa during the reign of our first black president.

Many US news outlets, many otherwise reasonable people with access to foreign news, and countless others around the world averted their eyes and their ears to the anguish of hunted, lynched and massacred black Africans in Benghazi, in Tripoli, in Sirte and Bani Walid. But as the US Navy and US Air Force unleashed thousands of tons of bombs and missiles on innocent civilians and the military forces of the Libyan government, without which Uncle Samís and Barack Obamaís racist rebels could never have toppled Muammar Gadaffi, you heard and read about it each week in Black Agenda Report.

That is, if you were listening to or reading Black Agenda Report.
This kind of unflinching coverage is the reason Black Agenda Report has been targeted by Google, which now suppresses the appearance of our content in its search results alleging that we are so-called ďfake news" or tools of the Russians. Of the roughly two dozen leftist publications singled out in this manner Black Agenda Report is the only one owned by blacks or oriented toward a black audience. There are slicker and prettier web sites with far larger audiences peddling other kinds of black experience and consciousness, profitably delivering black eyeballs to corporate marketers. These outlets do not challenge cherished beliefs. They neither question nor contradict the lies our corporate masters tell us, lies which some of us repeat to each other.

During the bloodletting in Libya Black Agenda Report carried accounts of responsible journalists and our own commentary in print, audio and video on the lynchings, the massacres and the politics behind them. Though many of these events were covered elsewhere on the African continent they were almost completely absent from US coverage of the Libyan crisis. Even DemocracyNow!, which had a correspondent on the ground and ran two, three or more Libya stories weekly for more than a year, only reported on the persecution of black Africans in Libya a handful of times with no followup. But Black Agenda Report helped give our audience a coherent picture of the US sponsored catastrophe that befell Libya in 2011 and 2012.

Since early 2011, Black Agenda Report has run about 60 articles on the Libyan crisis. You can find a list of their dates and authors and links to all these at the end of the print version of this article at BlackAgendaReport.com. They include audio coverage of a July 2011 Atlanta public report back in which former US Atty. General Ramsey Clark, former US Rep. Cynthia McKinney, Rev. Derrick Rice of Atlanta's Sankofa Church of God and others who recently returned from Libya recounted their experiences in that unhappy country, and richly sourced accounts of the reasons the US and NATO overthrew what was once the most prosperous nation on the African continent.

Apparently thatís what you do if you want the Washington Post and Google to name you as a purveyor of "fake news" and a tool of the Russians. You tell the truth without fear or favor. Frankly, it can be a bad business model.

The only other thing that I've commonly seen producing slurred speech is an overuse of alcohol or other drugs.

I've wondered what drugs the President consumes? Some of his behavior makes me think he uses stuff regularly.

"I've wondered what drugs the President consumes? Some of his behavior makes me think he uses stuff regularly."...

His behavior is one that made me think it possible that he was using either "Coke" or some other stimulant...

Sleep depravation, poor nutrition, mixed in with narcissistic personality disorder, and what you have is the perfect set up for creating occasional, delusional and paranoid behavior...

Seemed to fit...

But then I thought about it more and concluded that the dude is just a narcissistic piece of bigoted sh!t...

so this lady spends years campaigning to ban fidget spinners,
gets her a trump appointment to the consumer products safety commission

she promptly hires a former chief council for briggs and Stratton and goes on the warpath against the Obama era 'dictate' to the protable generator industry

hot at work gearing up to throw the midterm elections!!!

democratic memo leaked,
demands party 'unity' and...

a requirement that the campaigns
must agree "not to engage in tactics that do
harm to our chances of winning a general
election"

the memo mandates that candidates preserve
at least 75% of all funds they raise for
"paid communications"- which is seen as
code for TV advertising, a method viewed by
much of the new generations of democrats as
outmoded, especially for mobilizing young and
minority voters who could be cretical in 2018

ah yes, Jimmy Dore

highly insightful intellect, so binary, so deep..

"Given her record of bloodlust warhawkism, there is good reason to be more afraid of Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump."[10]

"You do not owe her your vote. Hillary Clinton is not the Democratic Party -- You are the Democratic party. You do not owe anybody your vote. She has got to earn your vote . . . We're not letting neoliberals f*#k over the Democratic Party anymore."[11]

Since the 2016 presidential election, "Jimmy Dore has lit into Democrats for blaming hackers for their loss, raised doubts about the credibility of intelligence agencies, and seen the heavy hand of war hawks hyping the Russia connection to destabilize Europe and the Middle East," according to the Washington Post.[12] Since Trump's inauguration, Dore "has zeroed in on corporate media and the hypocrisies of Democrats, rather than taking on Trump," according to Truthdig.[8]
