Cats have the wonderful ability to heal their damaged pancreas and never have diabetes again as I found out after months of administering insulin to a cat hurt in an accident. Perhaps your Winnie is just as fortunate if you manage to keep his body weight under control, Lynn.

4:33, What a beauty, wonder what bird it’s after.

CD: So the Free Market, so coveted by the 1%, is the death of Free Journalism and Free Speech. Capitalism at its worst.

DCR: Drumpf, so dumb that he needs to call himself a genius in the hope others will believe it, habitually will not employ anyone who is smarter than he is, hence the loyalist like Giuliani and erstwhile loyalist Cohen. All other lawyers have left the building. As a result there appeared to be no intelligent lawyers around who could see through Mueller’s set-up. Mueller of course being a master at this chess game. I hope Drumpf’s hubris will finally bring him down.

CD: I supported Net Neutrality, but with the current Congress still dominated by Republicans I’ve got little hope they’ll listen and save it.

Alternet: I hope you’re right, Lynn, and Democrats put Nunes high on their priority list in January. I also hope there’s some evidence left in that basement, because he and his cronies – he wasn’t alone in this – will surely have it cleared out by now, if they haven’t burnt it all to cook the Thanksgiving turkey.

MU: 😘😁

The monetizing of media, like other services to the public, does indeed have the impact of actually undermining the service itself...much like privitization efforts

Given AG transitions coming soon especially, the state level AGs may already have sealed indictments. Giuliani himself might be vulnerable to indictment given some of what has been made public about his activities during the campaign, et al.

Thanks for the reminder on needed net neutrality action.

Hopefully the House Ethics Committee is gearing up for their investigation of Nunes come Jan.

CD: So sad !! Bit by bit, piece by piece.....nor do they care, unless it on their agenda/terms/rhetoric. ugh!

DCR: Good article by Mr. Johnston. Lays all the information out, how they did it, and lied, and lied some more, then got caught. Ooops...!

CD: Have signed. Thx!

AN: I think he'll be toast too, he's stuck in the mud, and will be caught, and rewarded with an investigation. YAY !!

MU: Look at him go! Now, that's one fast puppy!!!

Glad to read that your Winnie is doing good. That's good news!! Enjoy your day, and relax!
Thanks for your post.

CD: Signed, several times.  Hedge fund owners, and the Republicans that they run with are in for the long haul, as far as trying to control the way things get defined within the culture, run the propaganda.
DCR: Giuliani is living in Donny's Land of Grand Delusions, and may be the best mole the left has.  If his machinations help bring down the Orange Fool, I might try to nominate him for a Nobel prize of some sort.  Anything printed in a Murdoch run paper needs to be taken with several pounds of salt.  State AG's may have a Grand New Party with the Dumpster and his family.
CD, Again: A free internet is the best antidote!
'Toon: Wonderful!

CD: Death of free speech?
DCR: Good article. Giuliani is a disgrace just like his boss. Sick of their filthy games. .They feel that they are getting away with this and will soon have their bubble popped and all go to prison. Will be so happy when it all comes to an halt and our country can breath a big sigh of relief.
CD: Signed the petition. We must get them to pass the free internet.
Good to hear about Winnie.
Cartoon: Good one.
Great post. Have a nice day.
Thanks Lynn

Good grief! Five pounds in eight weeks is like 25-30 or more for one of us. Mt hat;s off to Winnie!

CD - I expect you can get this link from the source article, but you can read the censored column HERE at his blog, "The Hightower Lowdown." (You can also subscribe, by email, in print, or both.) Pat B, have you ever met him?

DC - Manafort has ALREADY PLEADED GUILTY to STATE CHARGES as part of his plea deal. Gee, I wonder why Mueller made that a condition. Hmmm.

CD2 - signed. Used photo of Archie.

AlterNet - I'm not sure about an open fire in the Capitol building, but I do think Nunes is going to wish he had lost reelection.

Universe - I know a joke about that ...

“The media are only as liberal as the conservative corporations that own them” (favorite bumper sticker). And with the partisan shenanigans that Sinclair Broadcasting does on local tv stations nationwide, we’ll have the most ignorant electorate this side of the Dark Ages.

Hoping Nunes gets demoted to “the guy who gets coffee.” Giuliani ...bleach.

Last week, judge Berman gave Mueller’s team until Dec. 7 to provide proof that Manafort lied. So... if the info is coming out, are indictments soon to come? (A day to live in infamy, again.)

Glad your fur babe is doing better.

3:34. CD: Unfortunately, "fake news" comes out faster than fact checkers can keep up. It's like any rumor; once it starts, it's hard to stop, or refute.
DCR: Between Manafort and Giuliani, Agent Orange is sure to go down. Good to know he can't pardon State crimes.
CD: Petition signed.
AlterNet: One can only hope Nunes goes down with Agent Orange; sooner, if possible.
Love the kitty; love the dog on water. Thanks for the post, Lynn. If TomCat is taking a break to move, you may be busier than usual. Always appreciate your hard work.
