Koala 4:59 [8:06} You do find the sweetie-pies!
Door hinge 7:01 [12:14]

The 44 former Senators who wrote the letter to the Washington Post are
Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), Bill Bradley (D-N.J.), Richard Bryan (D-Nev.), Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-Colo.), Max Cleland (D-Ga.), William Cohen (R-Maine), Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), Al D’Amato (R-N.Y.), John C. Danforth (R-Mo.), Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.), Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), David Durenberger (R-Minn.), Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), Wyche Fowler (D-Ga.), Bob Graham (D-Fla.), Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Gary Hart (D-Colo.), Bennett Johnston (D-La.), Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.), John Kerry (D-Mass.), Paul Kirk (D-Mass.), Mary Landrieu (D-La.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), Larry Pressler (R-S.D.), David Pryor (D-Ark.), Don Riegle (D-Mich.), Chuck Robb (D-Va.), Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), Jim Sasser (D-Tenn.), Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.), John W. Warner (R-Va.), Lowell Weicker (I-Conn.), Tim Wirth (D-Colo.) I am proud beyond reason of all of them. But, really, the only currently serving Senator who matters (at least before January) is McConnell, and he's complicit.

I trust everyone remembers Heather Heyer, who was murdered at Charlottesville.

When you click through and see WHO voted not to hear appeals (and therefore in favor of Planned Parenthood), be sure you are sitting down and don't have liquid in your mouth.

Huffo - Definitely a possibility, but not a certainty. One factor - and despite it having been extensively discussed, he still may not "get it" - is that a Federal pardon will do nothing about States' charges.

Vox - In 1914, of course, it was Woodrow Wilson running on a slogan of "He kept us out of war." The thing that fascinates me about the chart is how closely the percentage of midterm voters follows the percentage of Presidential voters, the exceptions being in the period 1990-2010. That has to mean something but I don't know quite what.

ABC - Will watch eventually.

Universe - Excellent advice - unless they don't have a dog. ;-)

RESIST AND PERSIST !!!

HP: I hope that dt gets his just desserts, and quickly. He has no business being in the WH, making horrible decisions based on his moods, or lack of understanding/skills in the political arena. Yes, Pence/dt need to go at the same time, as Pence has been complacent towards him. (good riddance too!) when/if it happens!

Vox: Good news!! All the way around for us Dems!! Already had signed petition. WTG, Freya!!

YT: W/watch later, thx!!

MU: Now that's the same exact picture I get from my Russian Blue to the dog when I'm questioning both . LOL.

Congratulations to the FF folks!!
Thanks, Lynn for posting.

TomCat Update --- He dropped into the site briefly which means he has his internet back. Here is his post:
"The move has been a nightmare. You may not see me again for a couple days. Hugs!"

So within a few days, he should be back to posting!

So Americans (US residents) are more civically engaged than they've been in a century? That's one positive thing that the tRump regime has done - encouraged people to get off their asses and not just vote, but bone up on candidates, as well as demonstrate and contact their Government reps. We still need to raise more hell, though - and make sure that we have an even bigger Blue Wave in 2020!

Good luck with all the noise, Lynn. Perhaps some ear-muffins will keep it down a bit.

Thank you, 3:29 (average 8:06). Well, it is familiar to me.
TomCat’s : 5:09 (average 12:14) If three of us are taking less than half of the average, or just a bit more than half, why isn’t the average going down? I just don’t think there are thousands and thousands of people playing (badly).

HP: Why are all these smart people coming up with ways for Drumpf to escape prosecution? Sure, there’s little chance that he will watch MSNBC, but Pence might. But then again Pence is one of those slippery Talibangelists, those who pinch kittens in the dark (Dutch proverb), and might “dislike” Drumpf as much as we do. Imagine him keeping up the appearance of pardon until the very last and then walking out, blowing Drumpf a raspberry.

Vox: Finally some silver lining to the Drumpf era. Kudos to you, Lynn, for stimulating your staff to vote when you were a manager.

ABC: Four Corners is one of my favourite programs on the ABC; investigative journalism at its best. Their programs often lead to further (police) inquiries and investigation. It’s right up there with Rachel Maddow.

MU: Don’t they always?
