trump probably won't lie, he plans to start wars with NK, Iran and anyone else he is afraid about.

Here in Georgia, some @$$hole teacher gave his or her students the assignment of creating a Nazi mascot. I was so pissed that I made this petition. Please sign and pass along!

MO: "Congress: To do the Will of the American People, and for the American People that means we stand with our Dreamers and Immigrants! Right on, Ms. Warren, I'm with you! (and others)

RRW: Where do they come up with this sheet?? Unreal!

NYer: #1. The DSM comes in handy with these cases too. Shame he can't be 'denied entry' permanently'.
#2. omg!! This is absolutely hysterical !!!! No love lost from Tillerson to dt though. lol.

Cartoon: Very, very scary.

You're most welcome, Wendy, and will continue to pray for your comfort during this hard time. Hope that you have a relaxing evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

RWW:  If one is a candidate, on a Republican ticket, one has to find some new low on which to campaign!  So much for the old myth of "Human progress!"
New Yorker: Well, now it is the DSM V, but the gist is perfect!  Here we have Tillerson ignoring the rumor about quitting, and firmly establishing that he is as much a "F****** moron," as his boss!  
'Toon: "The big lie," aka: the GOP strategy.
Freya, petition already signed! Yeah, "Human progress," my butt.

We need these young people
I have thought about why TRUMPY doesn’t want to help rebuild Puerto Rico think of this what an Opprotunity for him to make it full of Golf Course and Casino’s all for himself . hope this never happens,
Thank you TomCat

4:01 Looks very tempting.

Sending a little something for Wendy.

Move On: I am somewhat heartened by the number and diversity of people who are coming together behind Dreamers. Have signed several petitions.

RWW: Thanks for the BB alert, I'm stressed and behind enough to heed it. The shooter's profile is definitely that of a glocksucking ammosexual, and not of anyone involved with antifa.

TNY squared: I wish Puerto good luck with that! The second piece, I would guess straight news for a psychic.

Cartoon: Lies and the lying liars who tell them. Isn't that a book title?

“If port officials encounter a visitor who has a pompous and arrogant demeanor, needs the constant admiration of others, and is unwilling to empathize with others’ feelings, wishes, or needs, that visitor will be denied entry,” a Puerto Rican government statement read.

Too bad they didn't think about that last week! Instead, they got a smarmy, self-aggrandizing MORON who offended everyone with his ''accent."

Puzzle — 4:36 I fell asleep!

YouTube — I`m with Liz — a clean Dream Act backing Dreamers and all immigrants.

RWW — Alex Jones and anyone associated with him makes me want to

( green puking smiley at site)

The New Yorker #1 — Good call Puerto Rico! BTW, did you hear that Drumpf put on a heavy Spanish accent when saying Puerto Rico in Puerto Rico on Wednesday. I saw the tape and it was disgusting and so very condescending.

The New Yorker #2 — ÈIn the second, if Andy is accurate, both morons and imbeciles will be suing Tillerson for defamation of character.È — AMEN!!! I would not want to be sharing anything with that narcissistic jackass!

Cartoon — Liar, liar pants on fire! . . . both Hitler and Drumpf!

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

MO: Stand with Liz, stand with Dreamers, stand with immigrants, Progressives ✊

RWW: Sorry, TomCat, I’m not going to watch this clip and have it spoil my Saturday. Your excellent comment on it was enough together with its title were enough for me to know how utterly ridiculous Snyders would be in his assertions. When the news came through here that the Da’esh had claimed the Las Vegas shooting as one of their terrorist attacks my husband and I just laughed because the whole idea was just too preposterous. We then both came to the same conclusion: if anything, Paddock’s profile was more of a domestic right-wing extremist than anything else. Fortunately the Las Vegas/Nevada police were having none of it either and rejected the Da’esh claim.

TNY #1: Too bad, Andy, those Puerto Rican Customs and Border Protection officials won’t be able to stop Drumpf or any other government member with the DSM-5 in hand because “Malignant narcissism is a hypothetical, experimental diagnostic category. Narcissistic personality disorder is found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR), while malignant narcissism is not.” (Wikipedia) But that shouldn’t be a problem; jot down a few of the Drumpf descriptions PP and C2NN readers have given here and Puerto Rican officials will have no problems at all putting Drumpf et al. in the right category. 🤓

TNY #2: Moron, idiot, imbecile, almost completely correct, Mr. Tillerson, but imbecile (IQ 26-50) comes after moron (IQ 51-70) and before idiot (IQ 0-25). To be on the safe side, I’d stick to “idiot” if I were you. Most of us do. 😹

Cartoon: Actually this cartoon gives me some hope. If Hitler lied about not wanting to wage war against England or France, then Drumpf could be lying about intending to wage war/destroy/annihilate… North Korea. He is a habitual liar after all.

Ultraviolet ran the Access Hollywood tape on a loop for 12 hours in front of the Washington (phallic) Monument the other day. Good job!

Pissant Pence left the Colts-49ers game after the national anthem when some players took the knee. He said he didn’t want to “dignify” such actions, but he had planned this drama/statement in advance (journalists accompanying him were told not to bother getting out of their van as he probably wouldn’t be staying long). So how much did his statement cost the American public?

Bob Corker’s tweet today in response to Twitler’s morning rant was priceless: “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Somebody missed their shift this morning.” If only the rest of the Republicans stopped their ass- kissing and admitted they’re following an evil, heartless turdblossom. Ain’t gonna happen until they get their tax cuts through.
