4:38 Cute, though I'm used to dragons with heads that are more knobby.
From VoteVets, not a brand new video, but being brought out again for obvious reasons.

Faux - Oh, they're talking about "America First!" which was never anything but a slogan. He's never had anything that could be confused by any sane person with strength. Every sane person saw coming exactly what happened.

TNY - What can I say? So true!!

NYT - Did anyone here NOT see this coming?

Cartoon - Well, yeah. Sort of.

BBA: Nope, didn't happen the way they thought and crowed about. Wish it had though.

NYer: Yeah, he's a total player all right with dictators all right. Unfortunately, I can't chuckle about this one though, as it's the truth!

NYT: Gawd, I honestly don't know how these snakes (gop) sleep at night. Horribly wrong!

Cartoon: Can we send dt up there to visit/stay?

We lived in AZ too, I loved our time there. I'd take the heat any day, over humidity. Hope that you have a good evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

Andy Borowitz knows what he's talking about!

We got the right court rulings to put the families back together but the Trump administration is doing everything they can to make it harder than it has to be. No surprise there.

MMC: Faux News has been wearing traitor poo since it hit the "airwaves," and is responsible for much of the polarization in this country.  They gave up, in England, because the British are so much less stupid than Faux News has made so many Americans.  Tonight as seen on Faux News, at the gym, one could see the pattern coming to life, as they trotted out old crap about Hillary.  That's their fall-back tactic when everything else blows up in their faces!
New Yorker: Dumpy, the serial cheater!
NYT: Dumpy and the GOPIGS have to have a whipping boy to give their slavering, odious, jackal followers someone to blame for all their sorrows: "Them!"

I almost forgot, now dumpy is calling John Brennan a "Very bad man."  Mommy, mommy, please tell that man to stop saying things about me that IU don't like.  He's a very bad man."😢

tRump was a real kiss as* man with pUtin. Hope a lot of his repugs are just a s pissed off as all true Americans are. He is a total America.
Faux: America First?? Ha Ha. He has never been for Making America Great or first. He has done the opposite of what we want. He only believes in tRump being first and only.
If he doesn't get truly punished for this, there's something mighty wrong with our country.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

Puzzle --- 4:11 I have had an affinity for dragons since I was a child. Maybe it is because I was born in the year of the dragon.

Faux Noise --- They are so full of la merde that their eyes are brown . . . their noses too!

The New Yorker --- Now, now Jong Un. You must learn to share. Drumpf fancies himself a dictator's dictator.

NY Times --- This entire episode is a massive abuse of human rights by the Drumpf régime! . . . and it should be held accountable in The Hague. Unfortunately, the migrants have found out that the US is not the land of milk and honey they hoped for.

Cartoon --- Well the USSR was communist --- authoritarian --- in those days. Now both countries are run by fascist diktators!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

The heat and humidity were excruciating yesterday, and even now, it is 17C with 88% humidity (I am really hot) and overcast. No rain forecast. The clouds are keeping in the heat I am sure. I drank 3 litres of water, all expelled through my pores. Guess I need to up that to 4 or 5 litres to keep the plumbing in good order. I awoke at 300 hours to a bed and pillow that was totally soaked. I am thinking that sleeping outside on the sidewalk might be a good idea! Make sure you drink lots of water Puddy Tat!
