More Poorly Written Protest Signs At Fenway Park

From Conan O'Brien

Anyone see "Wind River"? Very good film. N/t

Buying a lair with subterranean volcanic vents and a shark pool. Is it worth it?

Sure some people think that volcanic vents lower the resale value and that shark maintenance costs are high, but I enjoy entertaining.

1. Take a statement or off-the-cuff comment from some Democratic elected official.

2. Twist it and take it out of context.
3. Post your outrage to social media and web forums
4. Attack Democrats who support elected Democrats to take pressure off the right wingers and Russian bots
5. Post more outrage and revel in your social media attention!
5. Repeat ad nauseum.
6. Congrats! You're a pure star! Winning!

If this is yours or one of your friends to do lists, please stop. You are not helping the cause, the party, or your favorite pure candidate. Please find something better to do with your time. You are only helping the opposition and those chaos-causing Russian bots.

Need some good news? In a little local election here in No VA,

Democrat Karen Key-Gamarra blows out the GOP/tea party candidate.

Member School Board At Large - Special (FAIRFAX COUNTY) Results by Precinct
242 precincts of 244 (99.18%) reporting
Candidate Votes Percent

Karen A. Keys-Gamarra 40,874 63.81%
Michael H. Owens 1,382 2.16%

Let's have the same turn out and send Ed "says the same thing as Trump" Gillespie packing this Fall.

I just voted. Little election to replace a school board member in my district today

Arrived at 7 and was voter 32. Retiring member is a republican on what is supposed to be a non-partisan position, but has become increasing partisan thanks to home schooling/tea party clowns trying to strip money out of the public schools. The Democratic sponsored candidate is Karen Key-Gamarra.

Wish more people saw value in the tiny unknown, un-publicized elections. They affect your live much more directly than Presidents and Senators, plus these local election is where future candidates get their start. It is important to stop certain candidates early.


Pardons a guilty felon before sentencing? Why the silence from the GOP?

1000s of ethics violations? Why the silence from the GOP?
Nepotism? Cronyism? Corruption, Possible treason? Why the silence from the GOP?

Hold the GOP accountable. Media? Do the the right thing.

Travel Advice Sought

Driving up to Maine in a few weeks and need a place to stop and waste a day.

Thinking of Bridgeport or New Haven in Connecticut

or Newport, RI

Any suggestions? We like good food and brewing scenes, historic places, things to see, etc.

What say you DU?

PS, thought of posting this into one of the places forum, but they don't have a New England group.
PPS, yes, I've heard of Boston.

On opposite sides of barbed-wire fence, an enduring friendship formed in Scouting

Norman Mineta was a proud 10-year-old Cub Scout in 1942 when the U.S. government began imprisoning Japanese-Americans. Japan had bombed Pearl Harbor months earlier, and Mineta and his family became six of the 120,000 people of Japanese descent interned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Mineta and his parents, two sisters and brother were moved from San Jose, Calif., to the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Cody, Wyo. The camp opened 75 years ago this month.

As a member of the Heart Mountain Boy Scout troop, Mineta met Alan Simpson, a Boy Scout who lived in Cody. The Cody Scouts traveled to Heart Mountain for a jamboree held inside the campís barbed-wire fencing. Mineta and Simpson became fast friends, bonding over their shared love of comics, silly stories and Scouting.

Thirty years later, when Mineta was a Democratic representative from California and Simpson a Republican senator from Wyoming, the two remained friends. (Simpson served as a senator for 18 years, and Mineta later became secretary of transportation under President George W. Bush.) Seven decades after they met, Mineta and Simpson ó now both 85 ó remain friends. As reported in The Washington Post, the pair returned to Heart Mountain this month to speak out against the racism that led to the campís opening.

What is the consensus on the Camp David weekend for Trumpy?

Was firing Bannon the main goal or just rearranging the deck chairs on the Trump-tanic?
