Wait, what?

There's still something about the Florida results, especially Gillum/DeSantis, that bothers me.

Somehow, the same people who voted to restore a felon's right to vote by a 2-1 margin, and to shut down Grayhound racing, then turned around and voted for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis? According to a Quinnepiac poll taken Monday, Gillum was up by 6 or 7 points. This just doesn't feel right to me.

OK, before we start celebrating Remington declaring bankruptcy...


I need someone to explain this to me. How does a company go from an 8 year "golden era of sales under Barack Obama" to bankruptcy in less than two years, and have accumulated almost a billion dollars in DEBT? What kind of bonuses were they handing out? How much did they donate to rethugs?

Calling Robert Mueller...

Anybody know how to email Jim Acosta/CNN?

Sorry, no 15 year old around to help me! I've been to both their "official" sites, and couldn't find a "contact us" button on either place. I sent him a tweet, but I really want to contact CNN. This man deserves combat pay if they're going to insist on sending him to those rallies. Plus a damned security force.

Damn right I'm a liberal.

Great read, and it needs to be spread. After today, I think, I hope, the scales are falling from Republican eyes.

Anyone watching Steve Schmidt on Chris Hayes?

Don't really watch network news that much...is he anywhere but MSNBC? He needs to be everywhere.

Knew someone had to do it!

I've been out of the loop for a few days, so someone may have already posted this. But just in case...https://pro.teechip.com/bastacap
Looks like they're donating profits to Daniels' legal fund.

Found an interesting time line on Roy Moore

Kind of lays it all out. Notice that his attempt on Tina Johnson occurred after he was married. There's no doubt in my mind that had she been responsive as opposed to repulsed, the situation would have progressed and he could have added adultery to the list. Although I also think he's in all likelihood "been there, done that", but those women are staying quiet.

He's such a scum bag. And "religious" leaders are supporting him. Ever see "Hannah and Her Sisters"? There's a scene that has a monologue that is pure Woody Allen. (Yeah, yeah, I get the irony.) "...If Jesus ever did come back, and see what's going on in his name, he'd never stop throwing up."

I live in a small town outside of Vegas.

I work in Las Vegas, and have been pretty much on auto all day. Kind of a strange quiet at school.

I haven't been able to follow too much at school, but rumors have been flying. I've heard the usual "ISIS has taken responsibility", claiming he became a convert 6 months ago. I've also heard he was antifa. Folks, Mesquite is about 30 miles north of where I live. It's the land of Cliven Bundy. It's old, white, and conservative. His other home was in Reno. Same demographic. I have no idea what his political affiliations were, although I'm sure his computer will tell all. But I just don't see this guy as being from the "left" or (seriously?) ISIS.

My letter to Dean Heller.

Seriously? You're on board with the newest "I hated everything Obama did or stood for, so I'm going to overturn everything he did, no matter how much it hurts my constituency" bill? You are really prepared to vote for the worst of the "health care" bills offered so far? You really have NO problem taking insurance away from 10's of millions of people? You really have NO problem with taking insurance away from people with pre-existing conditions, putting caps on care, having insurance premiums go up 100's of percent on seniors? You have NO problem with going against your "word" (fat lot of good that is)to protect Planned Parenthood? You're really prepared to throw the most vulnerable of us to the wolves, better known as the insurance industry. And please spare me the Paul Ryan platitudes about "freedom" and "state's rights". You are aware that our governor wants no part of this, right? And the freedom to either go broke due to medical bills or insurance premium payments is not freedom, sir. It's servitude of the worst kind. Do you just not give a damn about the people you are supposed to be serving? So far, you've given us an idiot in charge of the educational system, a thief in charge of the treasury, a man who is completely ignorant as to diplomacy in charge of the State department, a racist in charge of law, a polluter in charge of the EPA, and are fully supporting a fascist/white supremacist in the White House. Nice job, dude. You sure are looking out for us. I nominate you for the Paul Ryan/Mitch McConnell "Biggest Hypocrites in Office" club. No doubt you'll get in.

This damn bill is worse than Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction...it just won't die. Let's make the damn Rethugs eat it again. Write your Senator.

Obama in Vegas...Fantastic!

Couldn't get up close, but it didn't matter. The ENERGY that man brought into the room was amazing. And it just kept building, in him and in the crowd. Amazing experience!! Got a couple good shots & I'll post them up as soon as I figure out how. Crowd was around 4000, the center floor was a sea of people. And an absolute portrait of America...everyone was there, except angry white guys, anyhow! Got home late last night, and I'm still pumped!! GOBama!!
