5:24 Warm enough here today to think about it ... but not to actually do it yet.

So sorry the move is creating problems for you!
I posted a link to a petition for Dr. Scott Warren last week. This video is also about him (his trial started last Friday, so it's now in its second week.) It's a bit under 5 minutes. There's more information here:

MSNBC - If Mueller had been required to limit his witnesses to persons who had absolutely zero connection to sex with children, provably, he would have had no witnesses at all. And that is nto a joke. The morals of this person have absolutely nothing to do with Mueller and everything to do with Orange Judas.

RR - And this is exactly why we as Democrats need to start taking the teeth out of this lie by seizing the framing and redefining it.

UK - Wow. By any means available. The Vauxha;ll signs remind me of Freeway Blogger (and those he has inspired.) Except these are not anonymous, and no one needs worry they will be taken down before their time. Good on the Brits (except those who voted for Bresit.)

Cartoon - Yeah. China is indeed a red state. Just look at its flag.

One of tRump's cronies involved in child porn? Nothing about this rolling dumpster fire euphemistically called the Trump regime shocks me anymore. That is how low they have sunk.

Had to watch the Reich video on YouTube, but still just as informative. I used to believe all that right-wing B.S. about socialism, then realized how much we benefit every day from "evil" socialism. Public schools, public libraries, public transit, public roads, et cetera. People who oppose "socialism" have no idea how much they depend on it. OK, Mr. Rugged Individual, let's see how long you last without all those.

Good for the Brits, standing up to our risible excuse for a leader. Keep rubbing his nose in it, folks!

As for the cartoon - have you heard about bills that would make protesting oil pipelines a felony? Read more here:

Then there's the GOP bugnut who wants to slaughter "libruls" in a new civil war:

And Our Hero actually named people he would like to have executed for treason:

MSNBC: Hell is too good for this person. What a sick, sick, horrible perverted man.

RR: Very informative, (as always), and something to embrace, rather than belittle this train of thought.

DK: How awesome is this? Pretty awesome!! I love the lit pics on the building too, (my favorite)!

Cartoon: I remember when this happened. Tank Man was (and still is?) a very, very brave man. I believe that the picture is censored there, as the Chinese are very silent on the anniversary of this event.

Boy!, now that's a real bummer for you! So sorry for you, hope it turns out okay...geesh! Take some time to rest, and relax, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

*This just in: "How bad is it, that during the State Banquet speech last night, dt is so low energy, that he nods off, and he couldn't even stay awake in front of the Q of E. !!! ~ pb ~
2. Signs protesting dt seen around the UK re: dt: "You suck at golf."
"So bad that introverts are here protesting."
"We shall overcomb."

MSNBC: Seen this on the news last night. Glad another one of tRump's cronies have been arrested. Like Freya, I'm not surprised.
RR: Good video.
DK: all of these amazing creations they did for tRump. It blew me away how he started off his speech today with Theresa May, saying thousands greeted him. He love to over exaggerate doesn't he??? I heard today on the View, that Fox News isn't shown over there. So he must be at a total lost.
But he must be dumb if he continues to think they love him over there.
Sorry to hear about the move situation. For them to just give your unit up, is a bunch of crap. Don't you have any way to fight back? I hope you can do something.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

Andy Borowitz: Donald Trump, Jr, hopelessly lost somewhere in Buckingham Palace.

I’m praying for rain on D-Day 75th anniversary tributes - Drumpfelthinskin probably won’t show up (to protect his hair) and he won’t then embarrass the US.

Sen. Ron Wyden remembers June 4 for another reason: The world must never forget how the Chinese government squelched the free expression of its own people 30 years ago in Tiananmen Square and killed scores of innocent people. Tragically, the brutalization continues today in China. The time is long past for Congress to pass the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act.

Sorry about the complications with your move.

TY for posting. . .why not just throw up some fake numbers, graphics, gibberish and call it a day (oh, yah, that is what they do already...sorry getting old.) The whole thing just twists up the gut indescribably. Must be multitudes who are now beyond stratosphere-high heaps of denial and ignorance. . .who on earth can look and listen to him (them) and not feel wretchedly ill at this point? Appreciate the Brits coming out and speaking boldly. Cold fish there's a fit. Kind of a bump up from rotten fruits and veggies.

Tiananmen Square still brings tears to eyes and heart. Sadly, most people do not even know that a formal The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) exists.

Sorry to hear your move has been rerouted. Hopefully it won't be too long a wait. Thanks for keeping Catbox harbor open during all the transitions. .(Personally getting real seasick these days out in so many stormy waters. )

TC-TC Heart hugs. . .
