Tonight is Earth Hour!



This is the 10th anniversary of Earth Hour. Turn off your lights at 8:30 pm (wherever you are) for one hour to conserve energy and focus on climate change. More at link:

Today is National Puppy Day!

I think Nunes intentionally subverted the integrity of the committee.

He was way too accommodating of the democrats on Monday. Someone wants that committee torpedoed. Although.... I don't see how an independent investigation would help them, unless they can stack the roster. Would DOJ appoint such a panel --- and how would the members be chosen? I think it would be hard to find anyone who is objective at this point.

I agree!

Doesn't a SC nominee need 60 votes? With the Senate at 54-44-2, this is do-able.

I am getting annoyed at this talk about accepting Gorsuch and saving the fight for the "next one." That is just nonsense. Gorsuch is terrible and dems need to block his confirmation. If the "next one" is just as bad, then fight that one too! Also, that could happen after 2018, and by then drump could be gone and the Senate could be in democratic hands. No one can predict the future in such turbulent times.

Thank you for the Daily Holidays, Sherman.

I always enjoyed reading and participating in your daily post. It was the first place I went in the mornings and have been missing it already. We had a very nice group of regulars and I liked reading the contributions of the occasional visitors as well. This is a sad day for me, but I do appreciate your hard work over the years.

Best to you as well!



This guy is way too smooth.

I don't trust him one bit even though he is trying to sound objective. He sounds rather condescending or patronizing in the way he explains complicated matters, like he is suggesting, "There, there, children, everything will be OK."

I haven't caught all of it this morning, but I hope some of the democrats will cut through his slick facade.

Today's Google Doodle: First Day of Spring!



I haven't found any info on the Doodle, but here is something about the Vernal Equinox: http://www.mirror.co.uk/science/vernal-equinox-2017-weird-traditions-10001385

Special Election for State House (Phila. area): March 21

You have to write in Emilio Vazquez. Spread the word!

(I hope people don't misspell his name.)

Maybe the drumpsters leaked it to prove that he paid all those taxes.

All some (maybe most) people will remember is that he paid $38 million in taxes (in one year) and believe, "See, he does pay his taxes!"

It reminds me of how Rove set up Dan Rather over the Bush/AWOL story. Rachel has been pummeling drumpf every night and is probably getting too close to the truth for their comfort. So they provided her with a shiny object to distract everyone and make her look like she is over-reacting.

Yes, of course she should cover the story, but it really wasn't much of a bombshell. Or maybe I'm just getting too cynical in my old age.



World Kidney Day: How YOU can help!

It is World Kidney Day: Please contact your senator or representative to co-sponsor.....

and reintroduce the Living Donor Protection Act:

LIVING DONOR PROTECTION ACT

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) supports the Living Donor Protection Act (H.R. 5263)* introduced by Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), along with Representative Michael Burgess, MD (R-TX) to promote organ donation and protect the rights of living donors. This bill prohibits insurance companies from denying or limiting life, disability and long term care insurance and from charging higher premiums to living organ donors. The bill also clarifies that living organ donors may use time granted through the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to recover from transplant surgery and finally, the bill directs the department of Health and Human Services to add information on these new protections to its materials to encourage more Americans to consider living donation.

*S.2584 in the Senate, co-sponsors Mark Kirk and Kristen Gillibrand
