5:10 Looks like a corgi (or maybe just part corgi, but if you eat one of her babies, you'd best not let the Queen find out.)
For a Republican, this guy makes some decent points.

CSPAN - I gather he (unless the first time was someone else?) has done it twice this week. And that he is bucking fellow Republicans as well as, of course, Democrats. Joined at the hip to Bought Bitch Mitch?

RR - Are there enough people today who even understand what "malefactors" means? I might also point out that FDR had three terms and part of a fourth to accomplish breaking the grip of the oligarchy, and therefore, under the guise of "tradition," they used all the influence they had left and quickly made sure that no one else could ever do that. And they have never regretted it, because through gerrymandering, election fraud, voter suppression, and the electoral college, they have been ablt to maintain their straglehold by passing power from Republican to Republican ever since. Those Demmocrats who made it through were either killed, set up, or garroted by the Republican majority Congresses. This is only ONE example of how term limits do NOT benefit progressives.

NYT - Heads I win, tails you lose.

Cartoon - Sounds like an excuse rather than a reason to me.

I am so glad you are moving. I hope it works out way better than this place.

Got to watch that turkey trot!

CS: Gawd, what a jerk. It would help a lot of folks, in this case, but he objected. As- !!

RR: Well said, very scary news of how we're going into this.

NYT: He needs to go. He's nothing but a sycophant to dt, alongside with his minions.

Cartoon: I'm sure they had a good time with this lively dance, during their lunch break. What a downer!

Hi Wendy! Hope that you have a good afternoon/evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

CSPAN: Dicktard!

RRC: No doubt about it!

NYT: No doubt about that, either!  McConnell ought to go down in history as nothing but a whore to the moneyed!

RE:"*This just in: re: dt – “Unfortunately, he doesn’t have enough integrity to resign.” ~ Peggie P. ~"  I was discussing this earlier today, with a fellow who wished Dumpster would do just that.  I suggested that he does not have enough of a grip on reality to recognize that he is only making his long term survival bleak.

BBA/CSPAN: What a no-good rotten bas*ard. Must be wanting to follow in his heartless evil leader's footsteps.
RR: Spot on as usual.
NYT: Agree with others that he need to go. Can't stand to look or hear him.
Hope you enjoyed hump day too. Got some more taken care of in regards to your move.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

2:49 Look at that face, those sad eyes. How could you possibly want to eat it, TomCat!

CSPAN: One can feel nothing but utter contempt for Massie, who shouldn’t be called a Representative, because he isn’t.

RR: America, and most of the rest of the world, is in great need of an FDR. I hope one of the many Democratic candidates has it in her or him to become one.

NYT: The man is subhuman, bereft of compassion or shame, up to his eyeballs in hypocrisy.

Cartoon: But their partners? Of course not.

3:18. CSPAN: It's so obvious that the GOP can't stand the idea of anyone getting something for "free", unless, of course, it's them.

RRC: Of course he's right. Unfortunately, it didn't just happen all at once; we've been watching this come at us for decades. It will be interesting to watch how we fix it, or if it gets worse.

NYT: The Turtle doesn't care what people think, as long as he gets to continue pushing his agenda. I doubt the people he represents even know what he's doing; they're oblivious and apathetic.

Cartoon: Those GOP will do anything to keep women down.

Thanks for the post, TomCat.
