A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Over 40% of the trucks are unsafe to drive? WOW! Some of these trucks should be heavily fined or impounded, other people drive on these roads and want to be safe.

Did anyone catch the comments about Obama the president of the 1%. Or are we going to continue to ignor his roll in everything in their favor and against our interest?

Those that refuse to be questioned should either plead the fifth or not attend events where reporters are present. Someone might have the gall to think they had something to hide.

We are being sandbagged by the corporate oligarchy, again. The Constitution is being shredded, again. Shades of the early 20th century, when both labor and journalism were exploited and frequently subjected to violence. "Those who ignore history are destined to repeat it." We need a repeat now, of successful and thriving labor, a new New Deal, an open press.
