Sojourners: Such a wonderful article. Worth reading, everyone has a story to share. imho.

Enjoy your day too, Lynn and Thank you for posting.

From video: dt: "Nancy's in a situation where it's not easy to talk right now." Ms. Pelosi: "Please don't characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting, as the leader of the House Democrats who just won a big victory." B O O M !!!!!!

Sojourners - La Posada is of course familiar to me, as a Southwesterner. We've been making this analogy in writings and protest signs throughout the two years (and more). It's definitely time if not past time to step it up to drama.

DKos - It was wonderful and it was mostly Nancy. They got him to ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY IN ADVANCE, ON NATIONAL TV, FOR A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. Given who he is, it couldn't have been any better.

ABC - will be back and may add here.

Universe - Poor Timmie! The world is a dangerous place!

Thanks for the TC update--the border expression of faith is soooo Biblical. Sojo tells it as it is. Thanks Lynn

Sojourners: Interesting article.
DK: I agree with Joanne. I watched it numerous times on CNN. He's a flipping idiot. Acting like a preschooler. Making threats that he will shut down the government if he doesn't get his way/wall. Glad he's taking responsibility for his insane decisions.Now it all lies on his shoulders.
MU: When the crap hits the can get bad.
Thanks for the update on TomCat. Hope he does take it easy.
Take care. Have a nice one. Thanks Lynn

3:41 (average 7:13) That looks so cold when its 33 degrees Celsius out.
4:21 (average 7:51) I’ve never seen a masochistic snail before.

Sojourners: I’m not a believer but I can certainly relate to and feel compassion for the modern-day Maria and Josef trying to find a good refuge for their unborn child. I can understand anyone who is looking to find a safe haven. Sadly it is those who call themselves Christians the loudest, those who thump their chest and their bible are the ones who can’t relate or feel compassion for anyone.

DK: Drumpf went ballistic again and finally people are laughing in his face. Drumpf kept the press in the room to record his terrific-making abilities and bullying tactics and Schumer used them as his sidekick to ridicule him. May many such scenes follow until Drumpf is finally expelled from them.

ABC: Aussies have no emotional attachment to Drumpf and his ilk, but they have a very strong sense for fair play. In this case this leads to some excellent journalism. And believe me, they checked and double checked before the aired this.

MU: Always blame the dog…
