thanks, polls good news, but remember its not a popular vote and trump can lose CA, NY, and other "blue states' 99:1, win enough "red states" 50.1 to 49.9 and win electoral college while being crushed in the popular.....we've seen it before and can happen again

4:39 Gives a new meaning to the term "hanger-on."

If anyone wants to listen for about 45 minutes to three intelligent people discussing the way our federal court are getting packed against us, Here's a link. (You can have it in the background while doing other things, of course.)

This headline is definitely counter-intuitive ... but read on and it makes more sense.

MSNBC - We shall see. Primary challenges don't always succeed. I agree with you, TC, I am opposed to him on everything else. But there need to be opposition voices in Congress, and, even if they are as opposed as he is, I prefer to have them as principled as he is.

Other JD - I'm not shocked. We've been comparing him to dictators, but we are forgetting he also resembles Louis XIV (except older and worse looking): "L'etat, c'est moi." It also reminds me of "What's good for General Motors is good for the country." He quite simply has NO IDEA what it means to be a nation. I do with Jesse would not go quite so hard on House Democrats, though. They are in a tough position and they are not idle. Its OK to wish they would move faster, but I don't think they very well can. Smearing them for doing things right, or at the very least precisely, is not helping.

DK - And if we diidn't have an electoral College, that information would be worth its weight in gold. As things are, it's a little depressing.

Cartoon - Republicans repealed it de facto when they destroyed Reconstruction.

MSNBC: Got to give Mr. Amash credit for what he believes, and his feelings about dt/impeachment. Shame others within his party can't or won't grow a spine, and join him.

The other JD: I agree with every single word that Jesse said. It is TREASON !! for dt to speak this way. He doesn't care, either. It's all about him, and no one else.

DK: YAY! Of course, he melted when he saw those numbers, and called them fake. Gawd, no sense of reality in this id. At. All.

Cartoon: Sad. They'd love to do it too!!

Get your rest, TC. You've earned it, and hope that you get a chance to rest/relax. Take good care, and Thanks, Tom.

Sorry slightly off topic but i had to let you know this is going nuts on Twitter...

Donald J. Trump

"I meet and talk to “foreign governments” every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about “Everything!”

The Prince of WHALES 🐳 🐳 🐳

I am pretty upset that uranium mining might happen at the Grand Canyon. Why does everything have to be spoiled?

MSNBC: Good for Mr. Amash’s views on his evil leader. Why are so many others blind and stupid???
Other JD: None of us are stunned to hear of tRump’s thoughts about treason. He’s stab his best friend in the back to get in front. He’s a heartless evil bas*ard.
DK: His favorite two words, FAKE NEWS. Whenever it has anything to do with him not ahead.
Hope the weather continues cooling for you. Don’t like hearing that your spirit isn’t up. You have a nice new place to look forward to. It will be all taken care of soon.
So take care. Thanks TomCat
