3:50 I know pooties chase lizards, but do you actually eat them?

Fox - Exactly what they did to Hillary. The only differences are that we are catching it at the start, and if we are smart (not guaranteed) maybe we can fight it before is gets out of control, and also that she is good with social media. Ilhan Omar is being similarly traduced, but, I think, could use more help.

Bernie - glad he is reminding us. People forget, and we need to remember stuff like this.

DK - I must point out that, if TC is falling into the donut hole, the damn hole comes too soon. No one who ises insulin should even be getting close to it. I don't have diabetes, but I do take some medications I consider pricey, and I don't even come close to it.

Cartoon - Good one.

BBA: Ugh! The more they talk about her (AOC) in this manner, the stronger she'll become to lower the boom on these id's.

Bernie: "Real change never takes place from the top on down, it always takes place from the bottom on up." Well said, Bernie!!! Passing this one on...

DK: Something must be done about this! This is an absolute disgrace!

Cartoon: Scary!!

Hi, WWWendy! We had a strong storm come through, with good sized hail this morning. Hope that you have a good rest of your day, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

sounds like more GOP opposite world with respect to AOC.....they must actually be talking about each other on Faux Noise, but won't admit it.......she must also scare the heck out of them.....

MMC: What we have there is a schmuck, no, a bigoted schmuck, spewing crap!
BSC: "Absolutely!!"
DK: Another example of Capitalism gone crazy, rabid, and horrid.  Do not forget, that before the GOP was owned by the NRA, it was owned by the insurance industry, a bus buddy of Big Pharma!  It is just like Boeing charging more money to have those planes fly with ALL the needed safety devices!  I've not heard of anyone in politics pointing that out!

3:05 More colour than our geckos

MM: Endless is the word, and mind numbing, which is exactly what Faux News is trying to achieve.

BS: Most of us here were activists when we were that age, and in our way we still are. But I gladly hand it over to the next generations and I think Bernie, and Biden, should do the same and take up their advisory roles where they can do an enormous amount of good.

DK: I rate these pharmaceutical moguls as I rate war criminals; they should be dragged before a (special) court and punished for their unconscionable behaviour.

Cartoon: Let’s keep it a very small minority and make their outreach impossible.

MM: When are these fools ever going to learn?? Talk such trash. Glad I don't watch it.
BS: More power to Bernie. I was unaware that he was so involved that he was an activist in his younger years..
Glad he's ranking so high.
DK: Really is a shame how the U.S. has allowed these pharmaceutical creeps to do what they have done to the cost of medications. Especially ones that could mean life or death for the patient. Our country needs to fight back for the people. We need better medical and prescription protection plans NOW.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

Puzzle --- 4:19

Media Matters --- Just the fact that Faux Noise and other right wing nut jobs are spending so much time obsessing about AOC must mean that she is doing something right! There is a whole lot of projection coming from Faux Noise morons.

Bernie Sanders --- AMEN Bernie! All God's children are equal, and we are all God's children!

Daily Kos --- AMEN Lona! To compare costs, I spend about $200 for 3 months of insulin and that is without Pharmacare. It would be less with Pharmacare. Americans are being taken advantage of by the pharmaceutical industry. Once I pay my deductible, I pay nothing for most of my prescriptions.

Cartoon --- The American death squad brought to you by the Republican Reich.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
