So cute about Simon

CBC: So glad that he stood up to the bully, and that he was kicked off the bus. No one should endure this kind of abuse. Hope that she's okay too.

TP: Wish he would just go far, far away.

My Universe: Isn't this the cutest video of Simon? I loved it!

Rained last night here, and rain for today/weekend. Many houses are flooded, and the Red Cross has been here, to supply water/food/essentials for those folks. My neighbor's house is drying out, but most of the lower walls are ruined, as is the carpet. Several roads are washed out too. We'll move on, but it's a sad situation.
Hope that you have a good day. Thanks, Lynn.

CBC - More and more people of good will are learning that one not only needs to stand up to bullying, but show gratitude to others who do. I am perhaps not as surprised as Mr. Charette that he has been lavishly thanked, but I am grateful.

Think Progress - Megalomaniac? Demagogue? Both true, but you forgot "delusional." Or as some prefer, batshit crazy.

HuffPo - It will be interesting.

Politico - I read what Ryan said and I thought it was about as tepid as a statement can be - "I will vote for him." You can't call it an endorsement. It doesn't encourage anyone else to vote for him, or even mention the prospect of anyone else voting for him. I can't be sympathetic to Ryan or McConnell, though. They built this.

Universe - Well, you can't say SC isn't trying! Poor thing! ("Stupid kitten!"

Have a fun if busy day!

You and/or your white car sure have made an impression on little Simon, Lynn. With so many white cars on the road, he must be driving his mom quite bonkers 😉 Good luck with the teaching, and little Simon of course.

CBC: Can't have enough news items about people doing what we considered the normal thing only a few short decades ago: standing up to rabid haters and defending innocent victims of that hate. Kudos to bus driver Alain Charette.

TP: Drumpf compared what he's doing to Gandhi’s struggle for freedom through nonviolence? Really? I knew he was a megalomaniac, I've called him that many times in my comments, but now I know what else he is: a deluded megalomaniac. Sigh. How Americans can even allow a mentally ill person to do a bid for the nomination, let alone vote for him, is beyond me.

Politico: If I was a betting person I could have made my fortune betting on Ryan to "endorse" Drumpf. Nah, a few bucks maybe, because everyone knew that he and McConnell would turn, when was the only a question. As I've said before: these Republicans are soo predictable. As soon as their job is on the line they cave in.

My Universe: Good thing you ended with Simon's cat, or "poor thing" as JD correctly identified it. These video's always manage to lower my blood pressure again 🙂

“They’re not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies. He is not just unprepared, he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.”

That was a great speech. And she was exactly right, including her bit about him probably tweeting nastiness about her right then. Which he, predictably, was. Dummy. That "good" brain of his just qualifies him to be called a dummy, which is all that the smirking, draft dodging, fool is. An empty suit, an empty head and empty of ideas. Donald Trump the black hole of American politics in 2016. Sucking in everything, putting forth nothing but empty insults and dumb ideas. Pthhh.

We are also looking for more rain; though at this time of year "chance" usually means zero.
Good to know Mr. Charette stood up to the bully and called the police for backup.
The Rabid Right is showing how weak they really are by caving in to the narcissist, megalomaniac bully. Now that he has them where he wants them it will be interesting to see where the circus takes us. Hillary's speech was exceptional and she certainly nailed DT.
Your Simon sounds adorable. Simon the Cat is too cute.
Thanks for the post, Lynn.

AMEN again Gene!

Drumpf IMO is the very definition of evil.

Thanks everyone!
