SIDNEY “STEALTH” BLUMENTHAL

THE TRUMP-HITLER COMPARISON

Ken Berwitz It won\’t take much reading of this blog to know that I am avidly against donald trump\’s presidential campaign. But in the past week I have read a number of trump-haters (Bill Maher, Louis CK, the huffingtonpost.com web site, and others) comparing trump to adolf hitler. The comparison is imbecilic, and people who make it are acting like imbeciles. End of blog.

THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s paragraphs come to us from Tom Blumer, writing for newsbusters.org. Days ago, I blogged that the latest job data, while looking very positive on the surface, is actually terrible.  Yes, 242,000 jobs were created, but the vast majority of them were low-minimum wage and part time jobs.  The number of good jobs actually dropped.  And the 4.9% unemployment...
