6:28 Well, that's astonishing. Guess I got the point - barely.
Bizarro World gets more bizarre every day! Gotta give credit to the cops, though. Story also picked up by Daily Kos.

MSNBC - Well, if it's going to be like this, it's at least a good thing that we live in a time when a MSM anchor can say "Congressman Duckyjams" without raising so much as one hair of an eyebrow. I guess.

USA - What was that old Goldwynism? "In two words - In. Sane."

Oregonian - Kudos! Go for it!

Cartoon - Going to have to disagree here. He has not the brains, he has not the interest in semantics, he probably doesn't know what semantics is, and he's definitely not clever enough.

MSNBC: Gawd. What an ID, and perv. How disgusting! ICK!

USA: Was going okay.., until the Repugs and Bolton opened his mouth...Anything that Bolton says or does turns to sheet for the country, in this case, N.Korea and it's ongoing talks. "We do not hide our feeling of repugnance towards (Bolton)," Kim Kye Gwan said.

Oregonian: SuhWeet!!!!! Awesome!!!

Cartoon: Yep. Sick. That's his crude level of incompetence and utter disrespect to be in this office, he's a horrible man. imho.

Hi Wendy! Glad you are having a good day, weather wise. We are in the 90's today/rest of week. Enjoy your evening, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

Looks as if the Blue Wave is gaining momentum. Now we need that to carry over not just into November, but well beyond that. And it needs to be for genuinely progressive Dems, not just the same old DINOs.

Isn't it amazing how these tidbits of information come out being true when tRump was saying they were fake news. Crazy to think that he has never spoken a true word since being in the W. H. I take it that it's how he ran his business adventures.
MSNBC: How do these creeps get away with it. Then have lawyers who tell them not to pay their fines....insane croaked world.
Glad you're having a good day. Take care. Thanks TomCat

MSNBC: Of course Blake Farenthold had no problem finding a well paying job as a lobbyist; he has all these great connections with men who do more or less the same as he does, but haven’t been found out yet, and who love to see some bribe…sorry, lobby coming their way. ‘Forget about the past, forget about the promise of repayment he made, every man deserves a second chance if he’s a Republican’, right?

USAT: First Drumpf violates the Iran nuclear deal, which on it’s own would be enough to reduce any trust in negotiating with America to zero, but Kim sends back three hostages as a sign of good faith. Then Bolton says it will be a full disarmament in Libyan style, a treaty that had Lybia’s leader Gaddafi toppled within days and cost him his life within weeks. And to top it all off, South Korea and the US didn’t postpone their annual show of strength and felt the need to hold the military exercise on the sea border of North Korea, even though they had shown all their military muscle just a few months ago in that region. Sorry, from here it looks like provocation; it looks like the US wants Pyongyang to cancel the summit meeting, so they can put the blame on Kim Jong-un. All bets are off again and start anew: Is it Iran or North Korea where Drumpf will start his war?

Oregonian: Under normal circumstances I’m never much in favor of absolute majorities, but in this Drumpf/GOP era I keep my fingers crossed Democrats will pick up that one seat in the House and Senate to achieve the three-fifths supermajority. If they do, I hope they use their power wisely, now and in the future.

Cartoon: I’m sure this one would be completely lost on Drumpf; he can neither read nor understand what it’s saying.

3:55. MSNBC: It's not like we have any choice in the hiring of Ducky Jams. Unfortunately, no matter how much we yell, send letters, call, or text, Congress isn't ready to ban former politicians from lobby jobs. Guess we just have to keep trying.

USA: Our idiot in charge has already skewed the meeting with all his incorrect boasting about the demarcation line, among other things. Too bad he can't keep his mouth shut (or turn off the twitter).

TO: So far, so good. California has their primaries in about three weeks...

Thanks for the post, TomCat. RESIST! PERSIST! VOTE!!!
