MM: It would be an even greater picture without thump posing with the others. dt lies every single day, w/o pausing to consider what's he's sayin'. Ill take PM Trudeau any day of the week, btw...can we clone him?

MJ: Read this earlier this morning. Yes, how wonderful and 'Sweet It Is" !!

NYT: I find this rather odd that 'Cadet BoneSpurs' is promoting this. Here's an idea....why not send HIM up in Space for a few months, and see if it works out??? lol

DCReport: This is indeed, a hard pill to swallow. imho.

Cartoon: Yes, exactly! RESIST!!

Spent last week watering my brown lawn, and the last two days it's rained. lol.
Thank you, Lynn for your post.

Mamamia - At 72 (but just a month and a half till I won't be the same age as Orange Judas fr another 10.5 months!), I am still saying, non my drivers license or whenever asked, I am the height I was in my twenties. I'm probably shorter, but for my needs, who cares. I agree a President needs to be more accurate, but my guess is that he's shrunk too, but never changed the driver's license. The 6'3" figure, though, is pure fantasy (and that's throwing roses at it. Did anyone else notice he's also the only one who looks like he has fake teeth?

MoJo -Best news of the week, and would probably have been the best news in a week not as rough as this one also!

NYT - You know, since 1775, we have never just "created another branch of the military." The Air Force came into being and grew as the Army Air Corps (and even adopted their official song while it was still there - the original lyric was "No one can stop the Army Air Corps," not "No one can stop the U. S. Air Force." It took fifteen years for it to come to the point where it was feasible to split it off, and another thirteen before it had an academy. Oh, but his mind is made up, and here I am trying to confuse him with facts. Also, it may be some small consolation to realize that the Trump regime is incapable of hiting any scientists who actually know enough to put something into space.

DCR - Nothing new about Republicare. Nothing good, either, though.

My Universe - Relaxing on Fridays is definitely not an option in this regime! And we need to work hard to make it go away!

Mamamia: Drumpf must have seen this picture too: next to the relaxed, but powerful stance of young and good looking Trudeau, Drumpf looks like the frumpy, overweight, old, AND SHORTER man he really is. This picture may explain Drumpf’s unprovoked attack on Trudeau and Canada after he left the G6.
By the way: has anyone paid any attention to Drumpf’s footwear? I wouldn’t past him to wear inlays to appear taller and to tower over his “opponents”.

MJ: Another judge who utterly disgraced Korbach by not only striking down “his law” but also ordering this Yale-boy “to take six hours of continuing legal education on the subject of how to introduce evidence at trial.” I hope they next hold in contempt of court when he fails to do so, and combined with an earlier failure to do as ordered, throw him in prison for a while. Not that would teach Korbach a lesson, but it’ll give judges some time to recuperate from having him in front of their benches.

NYT: Just another instance where Drumpf shows his megalomania knows no bounds. His contact with Kim had a really troubling effect on him. Drumpf now thinks it’s wonderful for a tyrant to let his people starve to finance his absurd military plans. And of course he feels the need to compete with Kim and top him, hence the creation of a military space force, with American dominion of space in mind.

DCR: Living in two countries which have good healthcare for everyone, just like Canada has, and compared to the US even excellent healthcare, I will refrain from rubbing that in. It suffices to say that all Americans should realises they deserve better and they can have better, but not unless thy rid themselves of Republicans and their Republicare.

My Universe: No, definitely not the time to relax, not even on a Friday.

I Hate to tell tRump, people shrink in their later ears. You don;t grow.
MJ: Great news.
NYT: He's like a kid ad wants to play with powerful rocket spaceship. I just hope he and pEnse are the one to test it out.
Thanks Lynn.

MM: Just another indication/iteration of how empty he is. Quelle fartface!
MJ: Kobach needs a lot more education than any 6 hours can provide! He needs to spend some months living among the people he is so happy to deprive of their voting rights, to see how to be a human! It’d like the words from the song “…people on the river are happy to give.”
NYT: I am a mental health professional, and have been saying that he is “A sick puppy,” for long time, now! It’s hard to get sick than being a “Malignant Narcissist.” But, he does know what he is doing, pandering to some of his biggest supporters, the Military Industrial Complex, whose members have donated heavily to his campaign! That’s the, sadly, real problem with his type, they have enough grasp on reality to be frigggggging dangerous!
DC Report: Hopefully these will have been our elected officials.
