Thank you SO much for posting this.

Yet another great example of just how f'd up this country's attitude toward health care is.


We lived in England in the late 80s to the mid 90s, long enough to greatly appreciate "socialized medicine" and to counter every dumbassed rightwing we've encountered in a discussion of the subject. My then 2yo son became very ill and had to be hospitalized in Addenbrooke there in Cambridge. I was awestruck by the compassion, knowledge, and attention of the physicians and entire staff. The only thing coming close in this country that we've experienced was when my hub's cancer was treated at the renowned Johns Hopkins, but with a price tag, of course.


Fox News is committing treason

Encouraging and inciting the overthrow of the legal processes of government.


"Sports rights distribution and broadcasting" ??

Pay Wall started thereafter.

From the Palmer Report...

"No sitting U.S. President has ever tried to pardon his own alleged co-conspirators, so this has never been tested in practice. If Donald Trump were to issue a pardon for Michael Cohen for his actions in the Trump-Russia scandal, the courts would have to rule whether such a pardon is Constitutional, and whether to uphold it or nullify it. From there, Special Counsel Robert Mueller would have to decide whether to charge Trump with obstruction of justice for having tried to use a pardon to prevent an alleged co-conspirator from testifying against him.

So there are three different possible outcomes. Different legal scholars have stated different views on which way they think the court might rule. The key here may be that for a judge to have signed off on a search warrant against him for the seizure of communications between Trump and his attorney, the judge must have believed there was evidence that Trump and Cohen conspired to commit a crime. This would directly paint Trump and Cohen as alleged co-conspirators, perhaps bolstering the legal argument that Trump canít legally pardon Cohen.

But the bottom line is this: if New York State brings parallel charges against Cohen, then there will be nothing Trump can do, as the president cannot pardon state level charges."

I'm TOTALLY with You!

These fuckers may as well go shoot neighborhood dogs out for a romp, except that wolves are smarter than domesticated dogs.

Over population? BULLCRAP. There was never an elk, deer, wolf etc. over-population before the European humans overpopulated the N. American continent. There was a balance. Humans are out of balance and are killing the whole planet.


This is just more macho, blood-thrill, ego-centered cruelty!









I'll just have to send more $ to Defenders of Wildlife now.

That's about it.

Already love them too.

About 6 weeks ago as I stood on my front porch readying my courage to endure the pain of making my old ailing knees walk down the steps to take my big sweet Lab on her late night walk. She stayed unusually frozen by my side and halted her breath. Then, with silent footsteps, a beautiful little fox walked straight across the driveway, only ~15' away, directly in front of us and into the porch light. I froze too. It was magical. This gorgeous kit was totally unaware of our presence as it looked straight ahead.

My big baby girl was as transfixed as I was watching this stunning little red beauty cross our path. We both waited until she/he disappeared into the woods on the other side of our lawn before we moved.

Missy girl looked up at me, as if to say, "Mom, did you see THAT?"

What a sight! Just magical.


Our heavily wooded neighborhood is an officially designated Wildlife Preserve here on Virginia's east coast.






😠 Resolution denouncing white supremacists/ neo-Nazis fails in Tenn

It didn't even make it out of committee in the Tennessee legislature.

I spent at least 25 mins in research this evening

Trying to sort out all the Russians now dead or seriously ill in England, including their backgrounds and connections. Interesting but scary stuff.
No wonder PM Theresa May is livid .

Conclusion: Putin always gets even.

Yep. $11 mil is pocket change for them....

"Charles and David Koch alone have a combined net worth of $96.6 billion as of November 2017."
