From The Economist: It's all about the sanctions. They go into effect soon.

I like the clear details about the sanctions.
and seeing that Putin is as much of a puppet in Russia as Trump is here.


New sanctions are about to bite, and Russia’s elite are spooked

Did you know Trump is selling an "Official Merry Christmas hat" ?

It is the same red MAGA hat that has always been sold, except has teeny ornaments on it, and says Merry Christmas on the back.,
the SAME one. For $45.00.
Which is the price also of a "collectible ornament" which is an ornament size ..hat.

How Mike Pence is connected to Russia.

Manafort sneakily got Trump to accept Pence as VP, on that infamous day when Manafort lied to Trump about the campaign plane needing repairs, so that Trump had to stay on the ground, and meet with Pence.

Mike Pence's brother, Ed Pence is VP for Cummins, a majority owned Russian state engine company since 1987.

Cummins uses Lobbying firm PPG.

PPG is run by Charles Black

Black was a former partner w/ Manafort in Ukraine PPG worked w/ TRNC as did Flynn.

Pence ignored warnings and got Flynn hired for Trump's Adviser.


More detail of this web, and why Flynn is so important to Mueller's investigation of Manafort and Pence.

PSA....Today is last day to register to vote in ala.

i
You are automatically registered when you get/renew driver's license, but many do not drive.

Have any of you heard of this problem with a cat?

Our new guy is a year old neutered male. We have his brother also.

Over the past few weeks we have noticed Rocky was lying around a lot, But his brother does same at times, they seem to be copying our dog, they've been around him since they were 6 weeks old.
Since Thanksgiving, tho, he is obviously not using his legs comfortably and prefers to sleep a lot.

appetite good, drinks water, uses litter box, urinates ( we can tell) but wants to lie on a heating pad and/or the hot air floor registers. Doesn't object much to being picked up, but is not liking his right side legs to be felt.

going to vet first thing tomorrow, naturally, but was hoping for a few clues till then.

"Does God have a roll in Thanksgiving?"

This is the headline, in the editorial page of our local weekly newspaper.
Our award winning newspaper, as our editor likes to point out.

The headline!

There IS a way for Hillary to be President!

"Not sure why Clinton isn't running for a House seat.
Dems could elect her Speaker. Then .....it's Mueller time."

sez Richard Painter, Prof. of law at the University of MN, was chief White House ethics lawyer for Pres. George W. Bush from '05 to '07. Currently serves as vice chairman of CREW

In fact, the Speaker does not even have to be a member of the House:
Under the Constitution, the speaker does not have to be a member of the House. He or she doesn’t have to be an elected lawmaker or government official. The speaker can be an ordinary, private citizen.

In fact, there really are not any legal restrictions on qualifications for that office. The relevant words are from the Constitution’s Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5: “The House of Representatives shall chuse [sic] their Speaker and other Officers."
