5:51 What a blast.

Crazypants - He also celebrated Saint Patrick's Day by claiming an anonymous poem (but quite possibly by a Nigerian) was an "old Irish Proverb."
"What have you got to lose? Life as we know it." Of course all his supporters though that life as they knew it couldn't get any worse. Surpri-i-i-ise!
Ummmm - the tiny hands may make it easier to reach in and pull it - but - maybe harder to get a grip in it?
The Madness of the Ruler - So what used to be Boanthropy is now - Lawnmoweranthropy? It would be well if he would read the writing on the wall - if he could read!

New Rule - Boy, he really has a talent for sticking needles into cherished beliefs, doesn't he. He also has a good point. The adults among us DO accept some degree of collective responsibility for things our groups have done. And consistency. Indeed.

Cartoon - And Republicans have been undermining and ignoring it ever since!


(when you're up to it.)

sorry your symptoms add to less sleep still...some scholars say everything constitutional is designed for the common good...that is collective responsibility in action.

Sure wish the principles of Miranda were guiding principles for ICE

Bill Maher's show is one I hate to miss. Being of Irish heritage myself, I could relate completely to what he was saying about immigrants. President Crazypants is about as accurate as any nickname I've heard. There are just so many good ones.
Thank you for the post, TomCat. We can only hope our positive thoughts, energy, and hugs are getting through.

Puzzle — 3:59  I've been pining away today!
YouTube — Bill is so spot on!  Several funny lines that had me LMAO, particulary the small hands making it easier for Drumpf to pull things out of his ass!
Resist and Persist!!!
YouTube — I especially liked the part about the Irish terrorists in Northern Ireland.  Bill is correct and also, how about McVeigh, or about the whites that lynched or otherwise killed blacks in the US.  They too were terrorists.  Or even Republicans with policies that kill, just a little more slowly.
Resist and Persist!!!
Cartoon — Yes, a person's miranda rights should sacred but from what I have heard, they are not always.
Resist and Persist!!!
I hope you get a better sleep tonight!  Take care Puddy Tat!

That dreaded cough; sound your medication hasn't got agrip on that yet, TomCat. Perhaps you should get in touch with your doctor again, before you pull a muscle or worse. If you sleep better, you'll also heal better too, though there's no medicine against drag races yet.

Bill Maher 1: Bill must be battling with conflicting feelings for some time now: both frustration and gratitude for the enormities delivered by mad king Drumpf each week. And frustration and gratitude for the certainty that the lawnmower on the White House lawn will come up with equally horrendous policies and irrational behavior

Bill Maher 2: Bill has a good point with his Irish terrorists in as far as it points out that terrorism isn't a strictly Muslim thing, but I can't remember too many Americans of Irish decent taking such a big stand against Irish religious terrorism, and the IRA was partly funded by American sponsors. Because it wasn't about religion either, but about politics, (English) domination and above all money and power.

Cartoon: For the time it lasted.

Trump was so rude and embarrassing to Merkel... he should be impeached just for being such a total jerk.

Should be noted that Angela Merkel has a PhD in quantum chemistry.
Donald Trump misspelled tap.

The world's most powerful woman earned her Ph.D. in quantum physics, presides over the richest economy in Europe, and is the central broker in a massive euro-bailout deal. As a female with a doctorate in quantum chemistry, Merkel immediately stood out in the political realm.

Details of how Angela Merkel became the most powerful woman in the world.
