Wishing all of you well and in continued good health, spirits for the Year 2018.

And to the extinction of the GOP/Republican Party. And to the impeachment of Drumpf or his forced resignation.

This is the year 2018 that we take back our country with the upcoming mid-term elections to secure Congress for the Democratic Party and the people. Let's not forget all of our state and local elections as well to get every single republican out of office. Let's get "mad as hell" and do it!

3:41 Pure color. (I got lucky. But nothing to eat.)

I hope you find people for FF for next year. This is apparently indeed the time to start looking ... and keep looking.

Too new and copyrighted to post, but I can at least provide a link.

Well, Kim Jong Un did make the news by taliking about a button on his desk which would launch a nuclear missile. ("In April, it was reported that President Donald Trump also has a button on his desk. His, however, is for a butler to bring him a Diet Coke.") It made me think of this ...

And of course you are correct on Pakistan. But it's not just Trump. No Republican has thought anything through since Eisenhower.

Cartoon - Yup.

I agree with your comment, TC, if the route gets closed, we'll be paying more, and at a high cost. ugh!

Congratulations to all the FF participants!

Cartoon: Well, my guys lost, bummer. My chili went over well, last night, and my guests left to go to another party afterwards. btw....It's pretty cold here today, 32.

Gee, I sure hope that you get to feeling better. Get some rest, stay warm, drink plenty of fluids, and rest. Take good care, and take good care. Thanks, Tom.

Hey, man, you’ve got to stop this recurring ailment pattern! Wishing you MUCH HEALTH IN THE NEW YEAR!
Who would’a thought that West Side Story could bring international news so frightening?
Of course, at this point in time, all those Puerto Ricans who can, really DO want to “be here,” thanks to tDump’s racism! Since they are already U.s. citizens, despite his spin on facts, he may have wound up encouraging a new influx of “them,” or "those people," into the mainland.

I hope your cold doesn’t get any worse. TomCat. That’s not a good way to start the new year. We need you healthy and fit for the upcoming and hopefully last great battle to get rid of the Drumpf regime. So make good use of the lull in news this time of year and rest. And make 2018 a very healthy year too.

Time: Someone in the White House looked through the many lists of Drumpf “accomplishments” and told him he’d forgotten to insult Pakistan. And you know how that is in that part of the world. It’s about the worst insult to live through if everyone else around you is insulted but you. So now we can all sleep well at night again, they’re all pissed-off equally in the ME now, except for Israel of course.

Cartoon: Copy that cat for a few days, TomCat. You’ll feel so much better, but make it a ginger beer for best results.

Sorry to hear you're ailing, Tom. Hope you get over that infection quickly - and may the new year bring you better health.

Well, at least your Teabag Trashers did better than the horsies. However, a less-than-stellar season finish does give a team better draft picks. At least the Broncos aren't in the same company as the Browns and the Lions. Better days are ahead - and maybe another Super Bowl victory.

So the Orange Ogre is ragging Pakistan now? I guess he realized that he hadn't insulted that country yet. Makes me want to regard the 4th of July this year as just another friggin' hot summer day.

Joanne, thanks for the video - that is a panic!

So sorry to hear that you're coming down with this upper/lower infection...not the way you're supposed to start the New Year. Hope you get it taken care of quickly. Like the Cartoon. Take care. Thanks TomCat

3:41. So many people are coming down with this crud. Hope yours is mild and over soon.
Our toddler-in-charge may be right, but then so was Obama, knowing what Pakistan was doing, yet choosing to work with them to whatever degree possible. T-I-C is not a negotiator, nor does he know how to make deals. He's a mess and will only make things worse.
Cartoon: Looks like the cat is joining in on the activity of the day.
Hope you're feeling better soon. Thanks for the post, TomCat. Happy New Year!

I’ve been vomiting for 24 hours - figure it’s the last gasp of the wretched 2017. ER Doctor/friend said the ER has been swamped with norovirus and influenza this last week. This season’s flu shot is only partially effective - at best, it should lessen the severity of the flu. Please take care of yourself.

To everyone, stay healthy - we’ve a lot of work to do. Now excuse, the porcelain goddess needs worshipping.
