RR: Good for Ms. Warren to propose the wealth tax, I sure those rich folks wouldn't

Politicio: Good grief. Here we go! ugh!

NYer: Yes, and while you're at Walmart, don't forget to say 'Have a Nice Day' in Chinese: 有很棒的一天

Certainly good news re: your pending move. Get well, and have a relaxing day. Take good Care, and Thanks, Tom.

This just in: "Trump has played the farmers as fools & tools. He (dt), does not care about the impact his tariff policies have had on farmers. It has been an unmitigated disaster and getting worse with time. ~ Anon ~

5:03 Don't you eat that bee! If we lose bees, we'll all starve, including you!

That is the best news I have heardall year! Good for you! Get strong and if you need to neglect us some, do so - we will be here and rooting for you.
A photo essay from the Amazon basin. One with a happy ending (and I pray it doesn't get messed with.)

RR - I've been paying a wealth tax since I bought my house in 2002. Before that, I paid one from roughy 1970 through 1980 on a house I bought in North Carolina. And I have sometimes felt half way secure - but I have never been rich my any measure. I'm all for a wealth tax (though I'm not opposed to finding something to call it which might have more appeal, or at least acceptance.)

Politico - This is called weaponizing the Department of Justice. Talk about spinning Founding Fathers!

TNY - Quite frankly, I will deal directly with Chinese firms on occasion, but I will not do it through Mall-Wart.

Cartoon - I'm not so sure Israel should be allowed to have a happy anything until it makes peace with Palestine.

Make peace with Palestine - absolutely! A two-state solution is the ONLY solution. Period.

RR: We certainly do need a wealth tax. They should be forced to pay for all of the years they have gotten away with paying nothing.
Politico: bArr appointed him??? Talk about allowing the dopey ones to do the jobs. Like they are spinning the bottle to see who gets to do it next..
TNY: tRump is making it harder for us with his vicious tariff games. I see that he's suppose to get together in June with China's Xi Jinping and his kissing buddy pUtin at the G20 aummit.
So happy to hear about the new place you're getting, TC. You've been watching a long time for it.
I pray that you get to feeling better soon, so you'll be ready for the move.
Take care. Thanks TomCat
