Every morning around nine I'm drinking coffee and watching Andrea (who I really

Don't like,) I'm just waking up. The network always breaks in at this time to give us the White House briefing. I think Andrea is pathetic, but I hate Spacey. The way he talks, gestures, his voice, everything about him. He is the last person that should get a straight hour,almost,of airtime. I think we should just be able to get the info without being tortured. The same with trump. He's a terrible speaker, he never says anything relevant, except his lie of the hour. Bad acting ! it feels so much like fux propaganda tv. So I shut it off and come here. Thanks for letting me get news without the bullshit.

Flush that money right down the toilet. The billionaires have spent millions to

Control the SC. Reject Gorsuch and tell them to get flushed. (Have you noticed all the commercials for him?)

From article:
One of the most remarkable moments during SC nominee Neil Gorsuchs hearing came when Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, questioned Gorsuch about money in politics. Noting that dark money had spent around seven million to defeat Merrick Garland, Obamas ill-fated nominee, and spent ten million to support Gorsuch.

Whitehouse asked Gorsuch what ideological bent had endeared him to this group of secret donors.
"I'm trying to figure out what they see in you to make you worth spending $17 million. Do you have an answer for that?"

"You'd have to ask them" Gorsuch relied tersely.

"I can't. Because I don't know who they are" , Whitehouse shot back. "It's just a front group."

The above was taken from the article. Could not copy. Typed it in.

So in the interest of a little fairness, I think bought and paid for Gorsuch should go down the toilet with all that dark money.

Are we starting a war without the American people even knowing it?

Trump Is Dragging Us Into Another War... And No One Is Talking About It
While Americans have been focused on the ACA and Trumps ties to Russia, Trump has been busy expanding the American troop presence inside Syria.
03/25/2017 11:47 am ET | Updated 14 hours ago

With no announcement trump has sent 500 troops into Syria.

Plans are for hundreds more to be sent .in the next few weeks. Rumors are this could be the tip of the iceberg. The administration is trying to keep it secret.

This info is from Sen. Chris Murphy at huffpost.

Just curious. I'm not watching tonight for many reasons

I can't stand his voice or phoney inflections (trying to tone himself down like he is a reasonable person which we know he's not).

His hair always distracts me. Is that a real color?

His speech is always the same. Build a wall, kill Obama care (it's a disaster folks)

Going to have the biggest military and the most nukes ever. We will win wars and take the oil.

Anyway, along those lines. I don't expect the dems to do anything unexpected because we are decorous in these traditional occasions when the leader speaks.

I will catch the highlights from DU, and Rachel and friends. Then I don't have to look or listen to his tinyness.

So, I'm curious, are you watching tonight? Why or why not.

Trying to stop protesters, eleven states have passed laws last week making most

Protesting subject to fines, imprisonment and property seizure. Az added it to their racketeering law giving authorities more power to seize property from organizers or anyone that destroys property. The intent really is to stifle dissent before it gets started.

Minnesota is working on a bill that will charge protesters the cost of policing demonstrations.

Iowa is working on a bill that makes blocking traffic a felony punishable by up to five years.

And the mayor of DC just appointed a new police chief, Peter Newsham, known for violating protester rights . DC was sued and lost a multi million dollar lawsuit because his tactics violated civil rights in 2002.

http://www.alternet.org/activism/protesters-beware-dc-mayor-appoints-new-police-chief-long-record-mass-arrests-and-depriving

These efforts are because of mass demonstrations that have already been witnessed since rumps inauguration. Scared the crap out of them I guess. Be careful. Read these articles and know your rights.☮️

Help. I tried to by some hearts on my Visa card. Thought I did it right.

But have not gotten mail about my hearts. Maybe I sent them somewhere? Other than me. It was only ten and I was going to give them all to crazycatlady for doing me a favor. Nothing has shown up on my bank account here. Should I buy some more?

We are Winning!

In NM voters and progressives kicked as on NM elections for school boards. Killed the pee party.

Progressive candidates fought off pro-Trump Tea Party candidates in school board elections around the state, Tuesday. It was the first election test of the newly energized progressive movement in the Trump era.

The results are still coming in but the early results are already clear: this movement isnt just about resistance in the streets were voting, too!

FB hacked?

Not sure but getting, stopped working message. Lots of posts of it happening to others. Many can't get in. Me either. Hmmm. Anyone know anything?

Jerome Womens March

Now I have somewhere to go and people to be with.

Medical marijuana clinic hacked.

My medical marijuana clinic in cottonwood was hacked six days ago. They said all the clinics in az and Colorado got hacked. Someone is trying to stop mm sales, but they are writing every receipt by hand. I told them it was the Russians or some four hundred pound person hacking from bed. Still it's all very strange.
