Personally, I don't mind paying taxes, I hate paying taxes that are then used to do harm and ruin the "reputation" (if there is any left) of the US....especially military invasions.....and acts of fear and cowardice.....

4:13 My, what big eyes you have.

The OTHER SNL video - New Laura Ingraham sponsors
Incidentally, Ace Hardware, which did pull out, is back in again.

TP - Imagine Matt Bevin caring about a child getting assaulted or poisoned. He's just trying - very badly at that - to speak our language. Old saying: he may have the words, but the music just isn't there.

SNL - This almost makes me want to see "Meet the Parents.' But not quite. (Side note - who does "Mike Pence" think he is fooling by referring to himsalf as "normal"?)

RWW - But not a REAL one. I wouldn't put it past someone - in fact, I wouldn't put it past this witch - to make a FAKE one. She sounds like she is paving the way for a fake, in fact.

Cartoon - this year, you have until Tuesday (the 17th).

TP: What a horrible thing to say. Where in the sam hill did THAT crap come from??

SNL: Great skit, it was nice seeing DeNiro (who looks alot like Mueller), and Stiller as Cohen. Maybe the paper jammed with all the lies that Cohen is spewing out. lol.

RWW: Got to 0:47, that was it for me. ICK!!

Cartoon: Yep, mine are done.

Hope the repair is quick for George. Sounds like you have a busy evening and day tomorrow. Best to you, and take good care, Tom.
*BTW, family folks living in WI, temp right now is 29, snowfall from late Friday afternoon to this evening will total about a foot. Can't say that I miss the northern weather, here it's 68.

If we could designate where our tax money goes, maybe there wouldn't be as much grumbling or cheating. I don't mind paying my fair share; what irks me is when the ultra-rich don't pay theirs, or when so much of what we all pay is squandered on "defense."

I too enjoyed SNL DeNiro and Stiller were great. Even the weekend update skit was good.
Hope George is doing okay.
Loved the cartoons.
Take care. Thanks TomCat.

3:53. TP: This idiot governor is wrong on so many levels I don't know where to start. What makes him think teachers are "caregivers". What makes him think all those parents are so inadequate that they can't figure out how to take care of their own children. Plus all the rest of his drivel is just disgusting.
SNL: You're right about the machine, but it was just a skit. Well done, otherwise.
BBA: She has nothing except hot air and hate. What a mess.
Cartoon: TG the taxes are done.
Thanks for the post, TomCat. Hope you're getting the rest you need.

TP: Republicans are really taking their cue from Drumpf now, aren’t they? Blowing off on some completely made up, and therefore never to be verified, horror scenarios, blaming teachers on strike for those non-existent scenarios and then calling them “cavalier”, when these teachers take no notice of Matt Bevin’s wild imaginings. It’s by now very obvious that many Republicans in office are fearing for their jobs and will do anything to hang in there, copying their idol.

SNL: Sessions in cahoots with Pence to throw Drumpf under the bus by delivering Cahen to Mueller; that’s just too credible, isn’t it? “…in a couple of months the president will be back to normal…cause it’ll be me [Pence]” Yikes indeed! Great parody though, despite the high reality content.

RWW: After 48 seconds I gave up on these ravings of a Republican lunatic. I’m sorry I made the mistake of actually viewing it, because the higher the number of times their insanity is viewed, the more it pushes these certified crazies to make another video for YouTube. The deluded crave their 10 minutes of fame too, you know.

Cartoon: If all have to pay the IRS as much as you do, TomCat, there will be few to bend over. The 1% of course never bends over.

Sounds you were too hasty celebrating Friday 13th was such an uneventful day, TomCat. It seems to have now spread itself over the 14th and the 15th. Let’s hope it stops here and your working lunch is a great success. It must be such a joy to see one of your boys outside those prison walls!

TP: Hey, in Kentucky one of the criteria to be met in running for governor is the uncanny ability to predict anything that will support the GOPIG platform!
SNL: Priceless!
RWW: Anything tDump can be accused of...Hillary can too...Is that the tactic?  People like this are the reason that Fux NotNews has made such an impact in the US.

Well, no, sorry, he has not been accused of that, to my knowledge, or recollection.

TP: Do kids get molested in the summer when kids aren't in school? What a moron! This governor is definitely following the tRump regime.
SNL: This skit was great. I loved seeing DeNiro.
RWW: I listened for 15 seconds and was too sick to watch anymore.
Good luck with George today.
Thank you TC.

82 of the richest people own as much wealth as the bottom half of the world's population. There is something really sick and out of kilter on this planet.
Wealth not shared becomes toxic to it's owners. Count on it. KARMA is coming.
