5:23 Why do I need to tap on the wall? Is there a certain number of taps or a special pattern I need to ... Oh, wait. Never mind.

Rachel - Yes, indeed. It's laughable that RWNJs think they are going to hurt him with a cockamamie conspiracy "Deep State" made-up story, when this is the only thing that can really hurt him.

Other JD - Actually, the disease is the Republican Party. Trump is just another symptom - although I admit he's an excessively painful symptom. Now: this is what comes of, what can I call it, celebrity populism? She thinks she can just tweet to him and he will respond in kind. I know that is far from the worst part of this story, but it is the thing that leaps out as "WTF! Who does that?!"

"From Me" - Those who survived, some of whom are still alive, also deserve better. "Stolen valor" is not new ... but that term to describe it is ... and long overdue. It was an atrocity waiting for a name, and now it has one.

Cartoon - That was High School? I'm old enough to remember when graduations were in June myself - in fact, that was the month and year I graduated from college. Now they all seem to be in May. Sigh.

Joe is going to screw up the next election. I am not happy about it.

I graduated in Chicago in '68. Just on time for the convention!

MSNBC: Joe - Oops!!

JD: I wonder if Clark had spread her filth before this incident. Glad she was fired, she'll have a hard time getting a job, with her background now.

Cartoon: Amen! 2. I was 3 years behind you, I celebrate my 50th year graduation of HS, and also when I joined the Navy right after graduation, this month.

Sounds like you've got your dates for moving all set...hope all goes well for you and Wendy. Hope that you have a relaxing day, take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

MSNBC: Joe does get an oops!, but will the DNC, also behind the times buy into it?  We need SOMEONE WHO CAN BEAT DUMPY'S ASS!
Dollemore: Being an educator is a "...sacred calling,"  and healers are "nurturers and protectors of children."  But bigotry acts like blinders do, wherein one can only see what one wants to see.  Pseudo-Christians do not see healing as applicable to those who do not pass their weird litmus test of what it takes to be considered a full human!  Educators can have a big role in shaping the future adult, obviously, and this is as close to sacred as it can get.  Th U.S. already has enough channels though which it alienates people, we do not need to nurture new ones!
Memorial Day: If any of you know that final, I think, scene from the movie "Carrie," when she reaches up from her grave to grab a visitor by the neck, I think that would have been a fitting end to any visit by Bozo-Spurs!
'Toon: I've got 6 years on you, man.
TC: Most good luck with the new move.  
My personal news: I will be having a reverse complete shoulder replacement surgery on June 12th, next week. I do not know when I will next be capable of communing with all you wonderful people, after that.

TC, hopes your move goes smoothly.

The Hyde Amendment should have been dumped on the scrap heap of history decades ago. Hell, it should NEVER have been passed in the first place! I'm glad that there is new opposition to it, and in a certain way I'm glad Bye-Bye-dumb gave us another reason to abandon him.

That Clark ogress got what she deserved! She is a bigot who isn't fit to teach dogs how to fetch. People like her give our great(?) country an ugly reputation.

I salute and thank all those who fought on D-Day and took those beaches, because it was the beginning of the end for the horrible Third Reich. Not one of those who died did so in vain. Yes, "Bone Spurs" should have stayed the hell away; his presence was an insult to all of them!

MSNBC: Joe needs to come out of his old fashion catholic upbringing.standards. Times have changed and women do have more rights.
JD: So happy that tRump loving moron was fired. Like the video stated if she wanted to do these ugly acts of deportation, she should of joined ICE, not the Texas school system. What a shameful bi*ch.
Glad to hear that you have a definite date for your more. Plus that you will get the keys next Tuesday. Plus get to go over.
Mitchell, good luck with your up coming operation. Hope all goes well for you.
Take care.Thanks TomCat

Best of luck with the move to your new digs, TC.
Great comments here on miseducator Clark.
If Biden gets the nomination, the Dems will throw away the millennials' vote.

3:51. MSNBC: Personally, I think the government should help women stay healthy, including whatever kind of birth control is needed. Either way, Biden is in trouble.

JDC: As much as I believe Ms Clark was wrong on every level, I don't like the idea that her phone numbers are out there for anyone to access. Of course, it was all her fault, and she brought it on herself. Thankfully, the school got rid of her.

Hey, TomCat, we graduated the same year. I hope your move goes (is going) well and you enjoy your new place. Thanks for the post.
