4:22 Lunch?

Keith # 47 - "President Emily Latella" - Stunning. I also like the "pulling the cables" idea. Here's my plan: we cut Fox's access to every cable provider, and don't tell anyone. We let all the talking heads keep showing up for work every day, and getting paid, but no one hears them but each other. Do you suppose there's a chance?

Sam I - They really don't know what the Deep State is, do they? And of course they will say anything, anything at all. Slightly off topic, it has been obvious that Trump's (Bannon's) goal is to "dismantle the executive branch," but it was still depressing to see that phrase in a headline this morning. Victim? Yeah, he's a victim all right. Just like a criminal who has been charged an jailed awaiting trial is a victim.

Sam II - That scene from Casablanca makes me cry every time. Well, back to today. Yeah, the town halls are liberal activists. Every one of those people there who is not a Republican is a liberal activist. They are also actual constituents. Some of those town halls even made a dent in Tom Cotton's self confidence - how big a dent, or whether it lasts, we shall have to see.

Cartoon - The Republican War is on Poor People.

RESIST !!! and PURR-SIST !!!

Thanks for mentioning our election results, TomCat. I'm rather busy right now, so I can't make any promisses, but tomorrow (GMT) I'll try to write a sort of upside-down op-ed trying to explain why the Dutch see their electiob differently from those seeing it from afar. No time to research, so it'll be just my opinion this time, if you don't mind.

Keith Olbermann: According to Keith even a second rate TV is to hard for Drumpf to understand. He doesn't listen, just watches the images flash by and his perception is so biased that even that has no direct link to reality. Does America have children's news like we have? It's very popular with children and adults alike in Holland. It needs to break down news and simplify its language a fraction without becoming childish or biased and that is to the benefit of many adults too. America could possibly benefit from Drumpf watching the Children's News.

Sam Bee 1: The Deep State was so deeply buried that Sean Hannity had to pull it out of the depths of his ass…How about pushing it back in there again where it belongs? RESIST!

Sam Bee 2: Am I to believe that American Democrats are all talk and no action? Why walk in those rallies and sign all these petitions if they can't be bothered to canvas or even go out and vote for the Democrat in any election near them? What is wrong with you?

4:17. #47; perhaps pulling the cable is the best idea. The next idea I had was to have the national security advisors do a TV show (reality, of course), where only Drumpf would see it.
Sorry to hear you're still sick; hopefully, this will be over soon and you'll be back to normal. Hugs.
Thanks for the post, TomCat.

Puzzle — 3:55  No fishie fricassée tonight Puddy Tat!
YouTube — Kudos to Keith!  Spot on as usual!  Is this what the "age of television" has become?  And reality TV?  I agree with you. I can't stand reality television.  Pull the plug indeed!
Resist and Persist!!!
YouTube — "The deep state is so deeply buried in steepy steepness, Sean Hannity had to pull it from the depths of his ass , , ." — LMAO!!!  There are a lot of things that Hannity pulls out of his ass, and none of it good.
Resist and Persist!!!
YouTube — Nothing can change if people don't vote.  I venture to say that it is not the protesters andmarchers that did not vote.
Resist and Persist!!!
Cartoon — Now there is a war on the war on poverty all brought to the people by the Greedy Pld Pharts.
Resist and Persist!!!
Glad your body is demanding a little verticle time.  That must mean that you are slowly getting better.

Keith 47- "Sad?" "Sad," you say, you Empty Orange Puffball. No, what's sad is …you.
Sam Bee #1- Projection? Have any of you noticed that word spill from my brain before? Oh, yeah! Hannity the pupeteer? Once again, I remind you that I have read that the fired prosecutor for the Southern Tier, in N.Y. had been investigating, of all things…Faux News!
Sam Bee #2- She reminds me of the line from the old rock song line about marchers shouting "Horaay for our signs!" Brilliance in signage is itself.
Cartoon- March 17, 2017, the Repukelicans launch launch their War on the People! That so-called budget must have kept McConnell and Ryan up all night trying to stifle their hard-ons! This thing is a Repuklican wet dream! I'll bet that even Boehner fell off the wagon over this…oh, you say he never got on one? no surprise.

You Tube: Reality show? More like deadly three ring circus.
