Corgis makes it all better. No need to cry

I would love to see a movie about the Beatles in the immediate years after their break up

Maybe even a Netflix or HBO series. I think that their individual lives, their post-Beatles music, the zeitgeist of the 1970s, all of that makes for a fascinating drama.

Don't you think?

I believe Trump

He can shoot someone in broad daylight on 5th Avenue and his base and congressional Republicans would still support him.

Would we ever support a Democratic president who did the same things as Trump?

Republicans would say that if a Democratic president did the exact same things as Trump is doing, the rank and file Democrats would be as supportive of said president as the Republicans are in support of Trump. There is no objective truth. There's your team and our team. We're living in an age of Ride or Die politics.

I would say, no. We wouldn't support a Democratic president who did things like this. Were the Clintons angels? Heck, no, but they didn't do anything remotely as bad as Trump is doing. Also, the Clintons were constantly being attacked by other Dems for their acts.

Moreover, after his scandals, Anthony Weiner ran for mayor of NYC, a bastion of liberal Democrats, and even though he was a rising star in liberal circles, he was rejected soundly by the voters. Same is true for Elliot Spitzer, the sheriff of Wall Street. He too sought an elected office after his scandals, and he too was rejected by the voters.

If anything, Dems are way too harsh and unforgiving when their leaders step out of line. You don't hear from John Edwards any more do you?

Are we "winning" yet? Is this "winning"? My head is not exactly swimming in winning as promised.

Someone tell me when the winning starts. Thank you.

AEIOU...and sometimes Y

Dog uses Ghandi's peaceful non-violence in fight with Bengal cat

Nonviolence also has 'active' or 'activist' elements, in that believers accept the need for nonviolence as a means to achieve political and social change. Thus, for example, the Tolstoy and Gandhian non violence is a philosophy and strategy for social change that rejects the use of violence, but at the same time sees nonviolent action (also called civil resistance) as an alternative to passive acceptance of oppression or armed struggle against it. In general, advocates of an activist philosophy of nonviolence use diverse methods in their campaigns for social change, including critical forms of education and persuasion, mass noncooperation, civil disobedience, nonviolent direct action, and social, political, cultural and economic forms of intervention.


The whole world is watching you kitty. The whole world is watching.

This Comey firing reminds me of something.... Oh yeah this

Could State Attorneys General Investigate Trump?

For the Legal Beagles out there, could the Attorneys General of states like NY, CA, CT, Mass, MD, etc. all pool their resources and investigate Trump's crimes? Do they have the legal standing to do so?

Is Twitter allowed in federal prisons?

I'm just asking for someone. Thanks.
