Explosiveness watch: As we watch the nation's press corps, we've been struck by the ongoing rise in the use of a very exciting word.
The exciting word is in wide use. Today, this usage at TPM seems to mark an era:
KIRKLAND (4/12/17): Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say the classified intelligence reports that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) explosively surfaced in March press conference show no evidence that the Obama administration improperly surveilled the Trump transition team, CNN reported Wednesday.Nunes "explosively" surfaced those reports!
Sometimes, we get the impression that excitement is, to borrow from the old TV ad, their product—their only product.
Along with: Along with the headlined use of the catchy, explosive and excitingly sexy term, "Luv Guv."
Us being more like Them!
Give TPM a break. They're trying to keep America from imploding, so they publish exploding news.ReplyDelete
I assume Nunes was attempting to establish Obama was improperly spying on Donald Trump. Had they been true, they would have indeed been explosive. The only reason they are NOT explosive is the not normal standards who are being made to treat as normal by a vindictive freak show of a Presidency. So I would say, "piss off, Bob."ReplyDelete

Who are “those” people Bob?ReplyDelete
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for not believing that Hillary lied and people died.
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for “believing” in man’s current role in global warming and climate change. And not seeing the obvious worldwide conspiracy to…whatever.
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for wanting affordable access to health care
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for wanting to fund initiatives that help keep refugees alive. And I’m an idiot for not seeing ISIS infiltration in the extreme-vetting process.
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for not believing there is a child sex slavery ring out of Comet Pizza run by Hillary and her cabal.
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for believing that safe abortion access and access to family planning and health services can help decrease the amount of abortions and all the wretched collateral effects of unwanted pregnancies.
“Those” I talk to keep trying to convince me I’m the idiot for not falling for easily dismissed propaganda stories like Muslims pushing Sharia in Texas or Soros and Hillary paying protesters and faking hate crimes….and the litany of daily bs from their “trusted sources” they vomit at me constantly.
“Those” people are lost. So lost. “Those” people believe in their own conventional wisdom above facts. Above REALITY. This isn't "partisan" or tribal. It is an infection, a virus, a brain blocker, that no amount of reaching out, sucking up, not mocking, not name calling, or some odd new age hippie bs understanding you’re striving for. Those people are screwing up this place and you’re scolding everyone with little relevance at the party and dismissing everyone else trying to clean up the mess.
I’m tired of this. 13 years I’ve read this “incomparable” blog. Piss off.
True that. You'll win them over when you kick minorities, but you'll only lose them again when you stop kicking.Delete
Those people are the ones who watched a 70 year old narcissistic lunatic mock a disabled reporter and cheered.Delete
Those people are the ones who watched a 70 year old lunatic insult a woman "for bleeding from her wherever" and cheered.
Those people are the ones who watched a 70 year old man asking to be made leader of our country incite violence at his campaign rallies and cheered.
Those people are the ones who watched a 70 year old man attack the press in the most vulgar insulting manner ever witnessed and decided the proper way to behave at his campaign rallies was to spit at reporters locked in an enclosed pen.
Those people are the ones who watched a 70 year old mentally unhinged lunatic suggest his political opponent should be assassinated on several occasions and cheered wildly.
We could go on and on. There is no excuse for the willful actions of those people inflicting a plague on this country that I am not sure we will ever be able to recover from.
Enough with trying to understand "those people". They should apologize to the country and hang their heads in well earned shame.

Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
