Anybody can blah-blah-blah about fighting corruption, but it takes brains and courage to have a real plan, a workable plan. We've been talking about "draining the swamp" for decades. We The People need to get active and support any plan that will stymie corruption, and make sure those plans not only pass but are enforced!

6:31 Just watch the claws, sweetie.

MoveOn - I was trying to listen to the applause, because that's where the clues afe about what people don't know about. And that includes lobbying and the revolving door. I would have thought there would be a lot more enthusiasm for those. The wealth tax too. that suggests to me that people don't understand what a wealth tax is - and who is already paying one. (Hint: anyone with a mortgage, for starters.)

Music - Originally written by the author of the Book of Ecclesiastes, with one sentence (and the tune) added by Pete Seeger. ANd, when you think about it, an extremely unifyinh message. Thank you for this.

TNY - I expect we all know why he used that insult - and it has little if anything to do with her personality. Actually, I'd love to see him try to be a pricess - and get pregnant and go through labor. Multiple times. But he could never handle the etiquette restrictions or the security restrictions.

Cartoon - Well, he did demonstrate that hypocrisy is not the exclusive purview of religious people, didn't he. Or authoritarianism, for that metter.

MOV: I love her, and her enthusiasm, and the points she brings up. We need an individual in the WH, that like she says, 'courage to call it out, and a plan to beat it back'. She brings up some really good points too.

YT: Ahhhhhh!!!! Thumbs up !!

NYer: omg, this is hilarious!!! Love this one!
Heard that the golden carriage ride was nixed due to safety concerns...but the Poutus' Beast (car), and helo w/be there. Why?

Hi, Wendy, hope that you're doing good. EOY for you yet? We got out last
Hope that you have a good relaxing day, and get a chance to rest up. Take care, and thanks, Tom.

MO: I'm with Elizabeth 100% regarding Cleaning Up the Corruptiom. It's something we certainly do need, that is long over due.
YT: Remember the song very well.  
NYT: Is tRump on some sort of drug??? Him being a better princess than Megan?? What or where is his brains?? Must of left his head when he was small. Here he is insulting Megan and isn't he suppose to be gong to England? I'm just curious what chaos he will cause there? Everywhere he goes, he creates hatred and other type of problems. 
Hope that you enjoy your Sunday. 
Take care. Thanks TomCat
