MSN: Kudos to Ms. Massa. I agree, that this should not be news, but, recognition to embrace all people!

TN: Not only is he going to drain the swamp, he IS the swamp.

DB: I remember my father talking about the Cuban Missile crisis, and trying to explain to us what it meant. Now...looking back, it was a nail biting experience for Americans, and to the World. Love President Obama's comment. I'm sure going to miss him. : (

MU: Such little cuties. Is it nap time yet? lol

Staying warm, cozy and dry sounds like a wonderful Mantra for today. I think I'll join you, as company is gone, and done with cleaning up. Ahhh......

Thanks, Lynn for post.

Sleep must have been the word of the day yesterday :-) Good idea with lots of weather going on anyway.

MSN - How nice. I can't be as sad as you = true, it should not be news, but any group with smaller numbers is going to take a while getting around to having people in every occupation. It need not be bigotry. Glad for this accomplishment.

Nation - Popular-Vote-Loser Trump's election was overdetermined. Some of his supporters, basically the loud ones, voted for his promises, and they will be rudely awakened, yes. But a huge number of his voters were not really supporters at all. Large chunks of brainwashed evangelical "Christians" voted for him because they are one-issue voters. They don't care about anything but abortion. Another large chunk of voters voted for him because they were brainwashed about Hillary Clinton. Those voters will actually be relieved by his backing off. We are not going to get as much help from exTrumians as we would like. It's mostly on us to RESIST.

Daily Beast - Hmmmph. I'll bet the arguments Fidel was pushing on Nikita were the same ones the American military community (and others) were pushing on Truman 17 years earlier. Nikita had the benefit of our hindsight.

Universe - The word of the day is SLEEP. The word for every day is RESIST.

MSN.com: Nice to see, and nice to see Canada take the lead.

The Nation: Somewhere in the dim, dark recesses of some Trumpophile's dessicated excuse for a brain, a little light will be kindled, that will grow into a bonfire of huge proportions, and the world will hear a very loud WTF???????????

DB: It will surely be interesting to see what happens with Cuba and the U.S. now. The ABC 6:00 O'Clock news abot Castro's death featured a standing line commenting that he had jailed and killed his political opponents. Yes, this is not a good legacy, but ow many dictators that have done just that has this country supported, some of whom we put in place, no less. It is okay to treat your downtrodden like shit…if you are our ally!

My Universe: There is little that is cuter than kittens!

Lynn, thanks for the story on Ms. Massa, and kudos to Canada for its easy-going acceptance.
I'm taking a break from Drumpfelthinskin news until I replenish my supply of antacid and aspirin. Southern Poverty Law Center documents over 700 hate crimes inspired by the Klueless Kumquat.

Thanks all!

Pat, that swamp is the primordial ooze from where Drumpf crawled out and is trying to drag the country into.
