4:41 "Large tree nymph" - does that make it a dryad?

MSNBC - Hoffeler's daughter could have told us this. She is appalled by it, but confirms that that is who he was.

CNN - While I have some sympathy for people who are in real and deadly fear of losing their careers (especially if they have dependents), I would say to them (if I were asked) that a career founded on abject terror is no way to live.

AlterNet - It IS big news. It will be even bigger news if the new election kicks Bibi out. There are times I think the United Staes should look at adopting some kind of parliamentary system like that in Israel, Britain, and so many other nations ... but it's far from a cure-all. All those nations have suffered under terrible mismanagement resulting from their electoral systems too. I wish I had an answer.

Cartoon - You are correct. they literally do want to repeal it. Heaven forbid.

MSNBC: Good video. Lying. rigging the whole system, to benefit he Republicans?? Boy, they go to great lengths, don't they? Unreal. WOW!

CNN: The R's need to grow a spine, and stand up for what they were elected serve the American people, and to protect the Constitution. They're in it for their own self interests, imho.

Cartoon: Oh, but of course!!

Hope that you get a chance to view your new digs, if and when you can sign, and get your key. Seems like everything is going smoothly....Hope that you have a good rest of your day/evening, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

I for one hope that this is the beginning of the end for Nuttin' Yahoo. And the Mango Menace. Good riddance to both of them!

MSNBC: "...would reduce the count of non-white people in this country...."  And what is it about that, that puzzles anyone?  Jim Crow voting laws, gerrymandering, stripping felons of the right to vote, forever, the vast majority of them non-white.  Does anyone need an anvil to the head to see that this is exactly what the Rethuglicans have been aiming at ever since reconstruction?
CNN: "...some note of grace in his soul."  DEVOID!  This is the Malignant Narcissist in action.  You know the old saw about doing the same thing, over and over again, and hoping for different results, being a definition of crazy?  Well, expecting Dumpness to be different than his tiny, measly, little, empty, rabidly selfish self has shown him to be, is also senseless.  I vote for "complicit criminals!"  Taking no action when someone is blatantly attacking the very foundations of your culture, is an action!
Alternet: "The best thing that could happen for Israel and for Palestine is for Butcher Bibi to crash and burn. He has dragged Israel into multiple war crimes. RESIST!!"  AMEN!
'Toon: They would love to repeal it, and to maintain the Electoral College, which a was set up to hand control of the voting to the powerful, from then get-go!
