6:40 At least I won't drown today.
Nadler - Here's a legal opinion of why the report will be made public. It depends on Mueller and on Congress, of course. Rep. Nadler should read it.
Vox - "hooo boy! How's this for a plot twist? Barr & Mueller are buds." This of course guarantees nothing, but it is interesting nonetheless.

RS - I note that he seems to think the LANGUAGE is offensive. It isn't the language. It's actual white supremacy and white nationalism which offend all DECENT people.

Cartoon - Manicure scissors.

MSNBC:"...House counsel that was hired last week...," makes me feel very comfortable. Closing walls is a good thing.  Maybe they will close in on his Pinocchio nose first! 
Vox: ANY candidate Grifter puts forth is going to be a Sum'bitch!  
Raw Story: King is a very special type of Sum'bitch, has been for ages!!  Please, let there really be Karma!
'Toon: How about magnifying glass and tweezers?

I think we need more Jerry Nadlers and that Steve King should just stay quiet

MSNBC: Whew! I can't wait !!! Wish I was a bug on the wall to listen...good news!!

Vox: Vexing behavior, with trying to talk to him. Weird!!

RS: I'd take an undocumented immigrant over the likes of this racist bigot. Nine terms??? He needs to go!

Cartoon: Good comments (above).... if one could find

Seems everyday I feel like taking a nap. I don't...but I think I could. Hope that you have a good evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom. p.s. good luck tomorrow with your computer.

The walls can't close in on tRump fast enough? (Why did I just start thinking about the trash compactor scene in "Star Wars IV: A New Hope"?

The sooner the walls close in and squash Drumpf like a bug, the happier I will be.

Cartoon: I love the comments.

MSNBC: Sounds positive. I also hope the wall squashes tRump. Nothing of Mueller's report should be kept from us. Screw tRump and his flipping crazy lawyers.
Vox: Talk about a mystery. Shutdown shouldn't be a reason for not interviewing him.
RS: Sounds to me that kIng is racist. Agree with Joanne's comment.
Cartoon: I like your comment TC.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

MSNBC: Republicans bent on hiding anything theta comes out of the Mueller investigation is nothing new, rather completely within expectations. However, Mnuchin trying to lift Russian sanctions is new and unexpected, and typically something this Administrator does when all attention is diverted elsewhere by shutdowns, TV addresses and possible abuse of executive power. People are getting worried about the “quiet” on the Republican side. What the hell is McConnell and his minions up to!

Vox: As I’ve said above, the shutdown is a great cover up for Republicans to tighten their grip on power when nobody’s looking. Barr’s refusal to meet with anyone but Democrats is just another one of those things. They may be the real reason why Republicans will let Drumpf have his shutdown. After three of them in two years’ time, Democrats should really be more on the alert.

Good luck with your computer and with the technician tomorrow, TomCat

Hey, I got my new wifi router today, and I got it all set up--and it only took me TWO HOURS!

(It was renaming the network and re-setting a password that took the most time.)

As for that border all, I have one word: FLOODPLAINS.

And a second word: TREADY.

4:31. MSNBC: If anything, I'd love to see Barr and Whitaker go down with Agent Orange. Barr was the one to tell H.W. Bush to pardon everyone associated with the Iran/Contra affair. What a mess.

VOX: The last person who should be confirmed is Barr.

RS: Steve King continues to make it clear he's a confirmed racist.

Cartoon: Regarding your comment; so true, so true. Ha ha.

Thanks for the post, TomCat
