7:48 Can wolves also be vampires?

MM - I hope some of these people are saving some of their fire for Sinclair. My God.

DKos/Chris - It was well said, wasn't it? But do you think even laid out that plainly, it will convince anyone who doesn't already see it? Or, that if it does, we won't drive them away bay yealling at them that this was their fault? Sure, it was - but yelling at them when they get a little smarter will not make them a lot smarter, and it sure as heck won't make them like us!

Pat - I sure wish him the best. My impression is that New Mexico doesn't have quite as many pearls-clutchers as most other state. I hope I'm right.

Cartoon - True then, and it's bigger today, so it's even truer.

BBA: I don't watch or tolerate Faux (it's forbidden in this house), or KEYE, (Austin/Sinclair). I watch Rachel, Chris, and the old timer's movie channel. Oh, and PBS, and the History Channel. That's about it in this house.

DK: Well said. Indeed....scary!!!

C&L: WooHoo...I like this guy! Can I clone you to come to Texas??

Cartoon: Amen!!

Best to you with your new barber. Hope you have a relaxing evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.
ps. Have a Mother's Day get-together tomorrow w/family. I may be late in commenting.
To all you Moms out there, Happy Mother's Day!

Yep! Real patriots resist and persist - and insist. That is how this great country started.

MM: This video could, and should, have been ten times as long, and I still would have watched all of it. Balm for the soul.

DK: Well said and spot on, but I agree with Joanne: will it convince anyone who doesn’t know this already? I hope Ian Bassin, and so many others, besides excellent rhetoric, also have an action plan in place and executing it to get Republicans and Drumpf out of office and replace it with people with integrity. It’ll be November before you know it.

C&L: Pat Davis must have figured that he’d join the low of Drumpfian use of language to get his high-road progressive message across. And it sure works for me!

Cartoon: They’ve only grown since then, haven’t they?

With the heatwave coming on, you’ll feel so much better both shorn and dipped, TomCat. Oh, sorry. That’s what they call it for sheep, isn’t it. Shorn and showered…that has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?

Puzzle — 4:28 I do not recommend messing with these guys Puddy Tat! You’ll be their lunch!

Media Matters — So good to hear that one man say “Fox News is not real news and you’re not a real reporter.” Too bad Drumpf and his supporters don’t know this, or don’t want to know this. Faux Noise is opinion and entertainment at best, not news.

Daily Kos — Another person who is spot on . . . but is anybody really listening?

Crooks & Liars — I did read about his ad in AlterNet where the TV station manager said:
“…What we can control however, is the 15 seconds of air time preceding it, which we will use to warn the viewer of a possible offense, disclaim our own views, and cite the federal laws imposed on candidates and tv stations.”

Fair enough but Davis’ message stands. I really like his last line:
“…Because if Congress won’t change our gun laws, we’re changing Congress.”

GO Pat Davis!!!

Cartoon — And getting worse with the Drumpf administration’s rollback of meaningful and necessary regulation!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Haha Told my folks that Faux News is fake news and now they won't talk to me. I'm actually good with that right now.

Yeah, NM runs purple. Their Republican governor went with expanded Medicaid. Good luck to Davis.
