Lose / Lose. May this fake or non alliance continue through the election.RNC and the Donald. ('toon)

Greetings from Charlotte - a very short walk from car to destination

A friend of mine performed in a play and I drove to see the matinee. Tomorrow is the deadline the government set to our hasty lawmakers who passed a discriminatory law in 11 hours, and now have called a 5 day deadline “being bullied”.

Since it all started in Charlotte I took a few photos for you, my son calls me “the war correspondent” as of late, and one never knows what may happen so my camera is always in my pocket.

Just a peaceful interesting walk:

The devil's stamp is on Trump now.

Dick Cheney apparently has now given him his support

Officer Tammy Cox: Proud member of the bathroom police

Bringing you this video from North Carolina


(I so hope this works, I'm not very good at this, and worked hard to try to bring it to you)

Prescience by a black man born in 1868

I guess it was unchecked ignorance that allowed the rise of a relentlessly ignorant, xenophobic, racist vulgarian like Donald Trump.

Moving right along with Ted and Carly ....

Or with "Mean and Meaner", as Barbara Boxer called them in a tweet

Looking for something to laugh at -- found it

I have no explanation, except that I was in the right place at an interesting time.

Just sayin': Let's fire them.

Koch Brothers Consider Purchasing First Democrat - Andy Borowitz reports

WICHITA (The Borowitz Report)—Charles and David Koch, the billionaire industrialists who have spent decades acquiring a world-class collection of Republicans, revealed over the weekend that they are considering purchasing their first Democrat.

“We’ve always bought Republicans, and our father bought Republicans before us,” Charles, the elder Koch, said. “They’re bred to be obedient, and they respond to simple commands.”

He said that he and his brother had considered acquiring a Democrat only after determining that none of the Republicans on offer this year was worth adding to their collection.
“It’s kind of a scary proposition for us, because we’ve never owned a Democrat before,” he said. “We don’t really know what we should be looking for.”

Koch said that he and his brother learned, after making some phone calls, that other oligarchs have bought Democrats in the past, and “had good experiences with them.”

“That was very reassuring,” he said.

But he bemoaned the absence of online consumer reviews that could help people who are, like him and his brother, interested in purchasing a Democrat for the very first time. “Yelp needs to jump on this,” he said.

While acknowledging the risk inherent in owning their first Democrat, Koch said that it would probably turn out to be a better investment than some of the Republicans they have recently purchased. “It can’t be worse than Scott Walker,” he said.


Honoring North Carolina. Showing you a little of what residents let me see today in my NC town

In my eclectic neighborhood in Winston-Salem there are old historic mansions restored, or not, but all of them are visions.
We also have normal houses (like mine) - some of them quite ordinary, others not. And interspersed are places you are glad not to live in.

The neighborhood association chose 8 houses and sold tickets for a tour. Carriage rides. Music and refreshments, and the glorious Southern Spring in full bloom.
My photos will give you but a small feel for what I saw walking by houses I usually drive by. Southern gracious hospitality was in force. I did not take but a few photos inside houses, though it was not forbidden.
On occasions as this, always carrying my camera as I have since “infancy”, I am always happy to know there is DU, and you my friends who will tolerate me getting excited and give me a spot to share it.

The first and last photographs do come from inside one house, where they live as small sculptures. If any of you have seen the movie: "La Cage aux Folles" - or the remake "The Birdcage"
that's the first unapologetic house I've seen along that vein and they did not re-decorate for the visiting hordes, which just make me extra proud.
North Carolina will bounce back from this intolerable calamity.
