Maybe.  Or was it simply summarizing the output of Ada, the computer program the DNC was using to manage Hillary's victory?  Software is completely reliable, just ask Westworld.

Is Trump the Yeltsin of the US, will tanks take on Congress like they did in Moscow?


Ada was a Pentagon software from the 80s.  Named after Ada Lovelace (1815–1852), who has been credited with being the first computer programmer.  Using Babbage's differential engine machine IIRC.

Yes, that was the older usage.  I studied Ada in the 80s, but never got to use it.  But the name was re-used for the D-party polling software for last years election.  No creativity (how many computer projects are named "genesis"?).  Also management that approves these things, are no smarter than the management in Dilbert.

I find it hard to disagree with anyone who reads and understands 'Dilbert'.  Who do you identify with best there?  I am mostly "Alice".  I see you as a cross between Wally and Catbert.

But actually, to the Democratic Party, ADA stands for "Americans for Democratic Action", a PAC seeking donations $5,000 or less.

Also "Americans for Disability Act" ... are you disabled?

Here, from your holy scripture ...

Interesting that you weren't mentioning her before I did.  Nice research though.  After-the-fact, but nice...

For your self you do.  When you prognosticate you are just as bad as all the others.  Perception changes the facts to un-facts.

What you are basically saying is that real news is the same as fake news.  I disagree.  Real news is facts.  "Fake news" is whatever is embarrassing to some person/party/idea.

You still think that Edward R Murrow, Eric Sevareid and Walter Cronkite types are informing us of publicly important business.  That died with the Powell Memo.  The results of the Powell Memo and PNAC, over the decades since, has destroyed any faith I have in democracy.

I have read the Powell Memo a few times in my life, and I re-read it again today quickly since you mentioned it.  It is a general ultra-conservative polemic accusing communists and socialists of taking over the US government.  There are few facts involved, just a claim.

If you base your political and social views on such a "nearly Bircher" view, I am sorry for you.  It doesn't have to be that way.

There are many people, a majority in fact, who think that a gradual improvement in the lives of all people is a general benefit to humankind.  As opposed to the idea that only some people should benefit for society.

So mid 20th century.  Powell wasn't just anyone, he was a Supreme Court Justice.  A godfather of the plutocracy ... as was Scalia.

Any damn fool lawyer came become a Supreme Court Justice.  Just consider Clarence Thomas.  And Scalia was a good example of a nut with too much legal experience.  One of the smartest idiots I ever read the opinions of.
