5:07 Not this year. This year it didn't make the playoffs.
Another hymn addressed to the issue of families which are separated, as well as other abuses of children. Please notice the tune the hymnodist chose for it. Even on this sad subject it is possible to smile, even chuckle.

MSNBC - It would certainly not be the first time Kelly was uncomfortable aroung Trump's BS. My money's on that explanation.

Reich - #8 One of the founding fathers' big gripes against George III was that he restricted immigration. They WANTED open borders. Re-read the Declaration of Independence.

TNY - Having much more class and much more ethics than Orange Judas - not to mention sense of duty - I doubt that would even have occurred to her. I did observe she was wearing a lovely shade of blue (Rosenstein was late for his own conference, so I saw a little before I had to puke over Orange Judas.)

Cartoon - It's tough to stop when you weren't moving in the first place.

Borowitz is always funny! If only the Queen really would have ditched meeting Trump.

MSNBC: I think if Kelly would have been seated next to him, he would have kicked dt's leg under the table. He looks frustrated. (which I can't blame him). Almost resigned, imho.

RR: So true. It's a good thing, and they also bring jobs, they contribute, and they're fun to be with. Not especially in regards to the debacle at the border, but nevertheless, they are kind, caring and loving folks. I support them.

NYer: This. IS. Hilarious!!!! lol, Andy!!

Cartoon: Going in circles, I see...;-)

It's hot and muggy here. ugh! It just saps anything, or anybody imho. Hope that you have a good evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

Now the Orange Ogre wants to depart legal residents, if I understand correctly. People who are here LEGALLY, who have been here for decades, contributed to society, raised families, built businesses and provided jobs, supported their communities, et cetera. Future historians will wonder how the hell the USA survived the tRump era of endless errors.

I'm convinced these are simple strategies to divert our attention from what he's REALLY doing...stealing from Social Security, stealing from immigrants who've lost their children, stealing from the environment.....etc, etc, etc.

RRChannel: NOTHING Dumpy says is based in any fact other than that he is a manipulating crybaby POS!
New Yorker: What say we rescind his grandfather's citizenship (if he ever got it) and send Dumpy...oh, poo, no one would take him.  Not Putin, not Kim Jong Un, not Erdogan.  there is no way any of these would trust his presence close by!
Joanne, I must compliment you, and any others who can actually watch, and tolerate hearing this Orange slime...I can not stomach it.  It makes foul things come out of my mouth, as I exit the room, or turn the TV off!

2:34. MSNBC: This administration (SHS) lies without care of consequences. Kelly was obviously uncomfortable with what his boss was saying. Does no one in the GOP understand what people are thinking by what their face is broadcasting anymore? Or do they just not care?

RRC: Right, as usual. Also, our idiot in charge is trying to get more immigrants to work at Mar-a-Lago because Americans won't work for him. Which means they have to be allowed into the country.

TNY: Unfortunately for the Queen, she did meet with the idiot. Unfortunately for the idiot, the British are laughing hysterically at how many stupid things he did.

Cartoon: VOTE BLUE!!!

Thanks for the post, TomCat. Happy 13th; one of my favorite days.

In addition to Robert Reich, pleas have a brief look at UN reaches deal on global compact for migration without US, if the BBC allows Americans access.

Puzzle — 3:15 Definitely not edible. But if you’re a beer swilling Puddy Tat, you might find something to drink!
MSNBC — Kelly seems to be doing a ‘here we go again’ palm plant without moving!
Reich — So correct he is! With the exception of indigenous peoples, we are all immigrants.
The New Yorker — Flush Drumpf indeed! He was at Windsor Castle for 30 minutes and managed to break royal protocol 3 times — 1) he kept HRM waiting in the summer heat as he arrived 15 minutes late; 2) he failed to bow and Melania failed to courtesy when meeting HRM; and 3) he turned his back on HRM during the reviewing of the guard. As she readied herself for bed, she was heard to say “Thank goodness THAT is over. I am so delighted they left the Empire when they did.” In addition, he looked like a total slob with a wrinkled ill fitting suit and a too long tie.
Cartoon — Only 2 directions remain — up and down. Up has been blocked so down it is . . . to hell!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
