OMG, Lynn, TomCat has mange too? A disease most commonly seen in dogs? No wonder he's grumpy. 😀

Anyway, thanks for the update and a new post, or two.

Alternet: Yes, to any rationally thinking human being, it was clear that Handel had stepped on a land mine that went off. But I looked on YouTube to see how she came back on Ossoff's "Kaboom" and that turned out to be a very vicious personal attack on him, just as you would expect from a Republican. And we all should have learned by now that Republicans love to hear what they want to hear, all as vicious and beside the point as possible, never mind the lying. She did the same in most of her answers, and it undoubtedly will have made her hold on to the usual Republican support, but she did herself the most damage when she bluntly stated that she didn't support a livable wage. She followed it up with the usual Republican BS, but by stating it so clearly that might have thrown some of her voters. Let's hope she did and that Ossoff wins the election.

TP: Kudos to Tahseen Chowdhury for being a role model for young Americans. I'm with you, Lynn, this young man will go far.

DK: My goodness; is it any wonder that the word 'Republican' has become synonymous in my mind to 'perverted stupidity'. Rohrabacher is completely clueless and as delusional as his role model Drumpf. He didn't even bother to read the rest of the little information he got: Da'esh claimed it was responsible for the attacks in Tehran, the same Da'esh Iran is fighting in Iraq and Syria. Which is probably the reason for the attacks. But even if it had been a murderous attack "sponsored" by Sunni (Salafist) Saudi Arabia, as the Iranian government (first) believed, it is still a terrorist attack on innocent people and should NEVER be condoned, let alone suggested as "…a good thing for us to have the United States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us? " Despicable idiot Republican.

My Universe: AAAHHHhhhhhhhhhh. Thanks, Lynn.

One of Oseff's endorsements I like most comes from Tierney's organization, which is committed to alternatives to war for solving conflicts. Thus I like the sandwich of him vs. the CA Rep. who deserves to lose in 2018 for so very many reasons.

AN: Go, Jon, GO!! I wish you the Best.

TP: Keep up the good work. A rising young star, we'll be reading about him in the near future! WTG, Tahseen Chowdhury!!

DK: ugh! Driving the clown car, I see.....

MU: Adorable!

Prayers for TC, with hope and good wishes for a smooth recovery. Take care, Tom.

Thanks, Lynn for post.

AlterNet - I saw the same news snip in the Daily Kos. I think AlterNet has better snark, though. Jon Ossoff either knows how to think on his feet, or he knows how to prepare and what to prepare for. Or both. They are not mutually exclusive by any means! And both are valuable to have if you are in Congress ... especially a Democrat in Congress.

TP - If the state law doesn't dpecify a minimum age (as many don't), there is absolutely no reason he cannot run at the age of sixteen. I know nothing about Jose Peralta, so I can't endorse either, but young Chowdhury deserves a lot of encouragement.

DKos - Just, for a moment, close your eyes and imagine what the reaction would be if a Democrat in office made a statement supporting ISIS. I might also note that Rohrabacher is far from the only one taking this position. To me, this is the mask of patriotism falling from the faces of traitors. To Trump supporters, it's not.

Universe- Simon's Cat is always good for a grin. However, I will stand by the quotation "Age and treachery will always win out over youth and skill." That kitten is just precocious.

I feel pretty sure the comment of mange was intended as a Midwestern colloquialism, and that Tom Cat, while indeed is Under the Weather, his condition probably does not include the mange. No matter. Mange or not, - all that matters is that we continue to care for TC's health and better days ahead. Get Well, TC, and know that we're all thinking of how fluffy your personality is, and how much we MISS YOU!
