4:03 All shipshape.

CNN - Do they think no one pays attention? (Granted that most people don't, but it only takes one journalist to bring something out)? Or do they not care (most likely)?

Jesse - Would anyone be surprised if, when he appointed elderly Beavis and elderly Butthead to the Court, he thought he was appointing impeachment insurance all along? I know I wouldn't.

TNY - ROFLMAO! I wish that were true! Alas, a cursory glance at the news any given day (or taking the "Florida man challenge") will disprove it.

Cartoon - Yeah - and they don't even appreciate the sunsets.

Today I have Illinois problems. The Department of Children and Family Services mismanaged an ongoing abuse case. Consequently a five year old boy was murdered by his parents. I have been contacting state, officials. I told the governor the caseworkers belong in prison with the parents.

CNN: Barr(f) should have known that anything he said like that would come back to haunt him. I hope this really bites him in the arse.

JDC: Cheat-oh is totally clueless about how government works. He isn't fit to clean poo from the Washington PD dog runs!

Cartoon: That's Republicans, all right. When everything comes crashing down, they'll all hide in their underground bunkers. Good news: They'll have to come out eventually. And what will they find? No matter how you slice it, a world that has no place for them.

CNN: Good reporting! Barf has only perfected his methods to suit himself, and cover for the boss. imo.

Jesse: Good educational video, I agree.

NYer: omg, this is hilarious! If only it were so. Unfortunately, I feel for those 14 people though. lol

Cartoon: So sad. What a dismal place to see, and leave for our children/grandchildren.

Speaking of football, my son gave me a 2019 Prism football card of J.J. Watt. I have it in hard plastic on my computer desk. Suh-weet! Good luck w/your Broncos on the pick. Hope that you have a relaxing day, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

CNN: Barr is in that office only because he is just the kind of scum Drumpy wants there. I know nothing about Moore, but if he has been chosen by POTUSh**hole,he is automatically suspect, in my book.
Dollemore: “Pony keg!” I love it! That Dumpness does not understand how the government works, is no surprise. I doubt he knows how the Boy Scouts works. Does Dumpness think he can run to SCOTUS, and threaten to withhold their federal paychecks, if they don’t kiss up? If they don’t change the laws in his favor/
New Yorker: HH lll will probably be his staunchest ally!

Jesse: tRump is an idiot. He has nobody to help him....poor tRumpy.
TNY: tRump must of been having chest pains when he seen the numbers that low. Hilarious.
Hope you enjoy the NFL picks tonight.

2:48 Easy sailing, even though it wasn’t a yacht.

CNN: Does it matter what Barrf said twenty years ago? Drumpf has given him a job to do as AG and he’s doing it, blatantly and bias blazing. He’s not kicked out for that, so why bother with 20 years ago. Better to watch what he’s doing in the future as “independent” AG on Drumpf’s orders.

JD: Drumpf considers himself king and above the law, so why should he bother with governmental procedures? He’s both dumb and arrogant, and topped with a large dose of dementia that makes a very dangerous cocktail. Thank Goodness that the founding fathers have provided for people like him with an impeachment procedure.

TNY: Splendid satire! Though I already had a ROTFLMAO when I read that Drumpf had ordered the Twitter bosses in to explain why he had lost more than 200,000 followers after having tweeted first that the purge was biased. I wouldn’t put it past him that he’s demanded the right-wing bots were returned, and for good measure were doubled in number.

Cartoon: What pollution indeed. If these were Monsanto’s (now Bayer) pipes, they’d tell you they produced beneficial, healthy fumes according to their research.

It’s Melania’s 49th birthday. Deranged Donnie hasn’t even tweeted about it. Is he worried about anything in particular, say a WH coup?

Puzzle --- 5:11 I am in really deep water!

CNN --- Barrf to have changed? Does a leopard change its spots? Give me a leopard any day over Barrf!

Dollemore --- AMEN!!! Somebody send this to the Dark Lord --- it is in video format in plain English so even he could possibly understand it and have the attention span to learn . . . although I am not holding my breath! He took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the constitution but he has no understanding of it.

The New Yorker --- LMAO!!! I doubt the boys and Ivanka would drop the old Dark Lord's association on Twitter. The rest makes perfect sense to me.

Cartoon --- There is pollution and then there is pollution. The pollution in the picture is fixable, difficult, but fixable. The Republican pollution in the Congress is quite a different matter. The only fix there is political extinction!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Sorry, fell asleep at the keyboard last night. It has been a very busy week. Hope all is well!
