5:07 Maybe Squatch can save them.

Taking food to eat immediately after the fasting fluid draws is the best idea, especially if your transportation may take a while to get you home. It shows you are savvy and smart.

MSNBC - Thank you for the clarification. I absolutely agree that this is not a situation in which we can look to gain anything. Sometimes, however, bringing something to the floor is a good idea, even if - sometimes especially if - the something is awful. In order to be more honest than Republicans, we need to also be smarter (not that that is difficult).

Vox - Increasingly incompetent, absolutely. There were some where the replacement, though more incompetent, is not more abhorrent, because that would be, if not impossible, at least too dificult for little Donny Two-scoops. (Gorka, Bannon, for example.)

RS - Had this not been published, most of us here would have been able to deduce it. Just from his character.

Happy Birthday indeed, Carrie! Hope you and Barry have a blast!

Cartoon - Yup. Only the intellectuals need to count that high.

Rolling back banking reforms could set us up for another economic crisis. The Democreeps that voted against their party - and against the best interests of The People - should be ashamed of themselves. We are becoming a one-party country: Too many so-called Democrats are just GOP Lite. Lean on your Senators to oppose this crap in any way they can!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if people have betting pools for who will resign next. The Orange Ogre's regime is a rolling dumpster fire - if I may be forgiven for insulting dumpsters.

Rigging the Miss Universe contest? Wouldn't be at all surprised.

Happy Birthday Carrie - and love the second cartoon.

MSNBC: Thank you for your explanation. I know that Ms. Warren (and others) have our best interests first.

Vox: Who in their right mind would want to work in the WH? Good gawd, what a cluster!

RS: What a pompous bigoted as-!

Happy Birthday, Carrie!!

Hope you have a quick morning tomorrow, and a safe trip to and from. Get your rest, take care, Thanks, Tom.

If they were going to listen to Elizabeth they would have listened to Bernie. It's hopeless. I hope you get in and out of the lab!

It seems to be getting crazier each day with tRump. More people leaving. Hopefully he will be next. Like the cartoons. Happy Birthday Carrie. Thanks TomCat

Vox: Who, in his/her right mind, would do business with a corporation that showed this sort of turnover?
RS: There he was, already on a world stage, already screwing the world with his bigotry!
Happy, Happy, Carrie!

2:39. Happy Birthday, Carrie B. Hope your day is/was everything you wanted.
Liz Warren was clear on what she said, apparently she didn't have time to elaborate. Let's hope the rabid Right doesn't get their way on this one.
VC: Not only who will leave, but who will be taking their place. dt says "everyone wants to work in the WH", but they certainly don't want to work for him.
RS: More proof he's a racist, as if we needed any.
Thanks for the post, TomCat.

MSNBC: Well time will tell if the Democrats that helped bring this terrible bill to the vote are also Democrats who are willing to pick a fight as Liz calls it, and show themselves real Democrats with the people’s interest at heart by voting against it. If not, those DINO’s who have helped to speed this bill along will be the nails in the midterm coffin of the Democrats.

Vox: LOL. The maker of the video, Danush Parvaneh, says that he had a hard time finishing the video because of the rate of people quitting the White House which made him have to change his props all the time. 😜
Hardly any of those that have left were very competent (but those that are still there aren’t either) and it’s only going to go downhill from here, isn’t it. Anyone with a reputation to safeguard won’t even consider working under Drumpf as one of his “best of the best” to end up being culled as a scapegoat. Anyone accepting a job there will be under scrutiny of investigating journalists who can be sure there’s something in that persons background to be found. Why else would they want to work there?

RS: This only underlines why I think beauty pageants should be beneath any woman’s dignity to enter.

Congratulations, Carrie!

Hope your “sampling” went well and you could enjoy your bird sandwich before a hypo set in on your way back, TomCat.

I hope you had a great birthday Carrie.
I can't imagine anyone wanting to work at that three ring circus.
Thank you for the Traveling Wilburys Ben.
Thank you TomCat. Good luck with your tests.

I read that there are efforts in the GOP to water down the two elements of the bill that might actually be good for consumers...sigh

Happy Carrie Day.

I, too, had a fasting blood draw AND a boob squishing mammogram. I only brought a banana. Here’s to good health reports for us.

Who’s next to leave? Today, Ambassador to Panama John Feeley. What will IQ45 tweet about him?

My gut tells me the N. Korean meeting won’t happen. Drumpfelthinskin wants “concrete and verifiable steps” first, and nobody knows what he’s talking about. My guess is a staircase at Mar-a-Lago.

Amen Debra. At least, being male, they don't squish my chest. 😁
