8:30 Leave it to the Mardi Gras to create utter chaos.

You simply cannot make this stuff up.

Other PP - I'm not so sure the Senate can't hold a trial and still confirm evil judges at the same time. But you do have a point there.

FC (not a typo) - Good for Denver. You can't always count on Denver to do the right thing, but at least you also can't always count on it to do the wrong thing either.

AlterNet - Republicans seem to be so ridiculously confident no one will ever look at their phones, so they leave all their evidence there. Like that Nader guy you mentioned yesterday (any relation, BTW?) I hoe they never figure it out. I also hope there's enough to hang them all. And that the courts actually do it.

Cartoon - Such a tragedy. With such far reaching consequences. We are still suffering from that today.

PP: Excellent! Now I'll have this tune in my head. lol

BBA: Get away from your privileged life and arse, and go help them, instead of complaining. I seriously doubt that they've helped a homeless person, or veteran ever. Instead of knocking them, give them food, clothing, or as I do...a free meal, with some $ to help them, and make their day a little better. Geesh!

AN: I agree. It's been going on far too long! I also believe that Snyder (and those involved in this), should be prosecuted. It's a clear violation of the Safe Water Drinking Act for those folks living there.

Cartoon: I remember this day as if were yesterday. RIP, Robert.

Hi, Wendy, Hi, Patty! Well, at least you have a date now, which will get you some time to finish packing, etc.
Hope that you have a good day, take care, and Thanks, Tom.

PP: Love it. States the situation very well.
BBA: Wish they would take care of these people. They weren't born in these situations, a lot of them were hard working, veterans, etc, that lost their jobs, homes, etc. They need to be taken care of. It's to the cities benefit to help them get back onto their feet, to be able to work again. Too bad the 1% can't contribute to rent a large building to help house them and give them a chance.
AN: I can't believe that this hasn't been corrected as of yet. What in the heck have they their leaders been sitting on??? It certainly needs to be resolved. The people there in Flint have suffered enough.
Cartoon: Tragic indeed. 
Hope your day go well.
Take care. Thanks TomCat

PPC: Pelosi needs to either s--t or get off the pot. Either we start impeachment now, or we wait and hope that we can toss the Peach Prick out in 2020. Of course, nothing is guaranteed, and the outcome will be ugly no matter what. Do we risk having President Pence? Should Democrats focus on kicking GOP ass in 2020? Remember, impeachment does not mean throwing the bum out - Bill Clinton was impeached, but he survived politically.

Faux News: No surprise these reich-wingers attack the homeless and those who are trying to help them. Their solution to the problem is to demonize the most vulnerable members of our society, as well as their advocates. Definitely barf-worthy!

I wonder how many people know that Bobby Kennedy predicted - in a way - the election of Barack Obama in 2008.

PPC: Dynamite!
MMC: Carlson is a perfect stand-in for the Donald…totally bereft of compassion!
‘Toon-Bobby: I had seen him in downtown Brooklyn, not long before! I don’t know anything about the mental status of his killer, but will bet he was thinking he was on a God-given mission!
Alternet: Snyder needs to be in a cell whose water is provided by a direct link to that awful river! And he knows where the water is coming from, and he has no choice, but to drink it, or die of thirst!

It seems as if Fox news is ready to incarcerate the homeless.
