Have you guys seen this?


A wee bit of Tom Price levity....

From Rick Wilson:

TRUMP: Do I have to fire him?

KELLY: Yes, sir. This was an egregious use of tax dollars.

TRUMP: Egregious sounds like a good word.

KELLY: It's not.

TRUMP: But I like it.

KELLY: Please don't.

TRUMP: I'm egregious. I'm the most egregious. No one is more egregious.

KELLY: Kill me.

Thinking of how to donate to the Puerto Rico catastrophe?

"It's very very difficult to dispel ignorance if you retain arrogance"

Heard in Ken Burns The Viet Nam War series, referencing American political attitudes towards Viet Namese,
but doubly applicable here and now.

Sigh....Map of Ala. election results

Alabama is mostly rural. There are only 5 urban places, pop. 250 K each, Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, and next to Georgia, Gadsden metro area.
So how the election stacked up is very telling.

Crazy Roy Moore won 55%, all the counties in red.....
Strange had the urban vote, in orange.

Did you know that "Mitch McConnell and the DC Republicans are trying to steal the Alabama primary"?

Neither did I , till I got a robo-call.
Accusations of $$$ coming from Calif. and other places is being used on this election, and Yertle is somehow involved in trying to "steal" the primary votes.

"Vote for Roy Moore, vote for Alabama values!"

so apparently we are having a primary that will decide who gets on the ballot for Senator, said Senator will go to DC to BE one of those DC Republicans who.......
uhhhh...lost the logic there.....if there was any.

This is what happens when there is FreeDumb to be unregulated:

A 5 year old died in a hot pre-school van recently.
this information was part of the news report:

Alabama is the only state which allows day care centers to operate without regulation if they claim a religious exemption.
Currently, there are 943 unlicensed centers statewide.

Snip:
Kamden Johnson died in August after being left in a hot van at his preschool in Mobile.
The preschool is operated by a church and was not licensed or inspected. T
The van driver, who has since been arrested, has a glaring criminal record.

Snip:
The U.S. House of Representatives adopted an amendment this week that would block federal funding for day care centers with a history of injury or death due to safety violations. The amendment was proposed by Alabama Congresswoman Terri Sewell, in the wake of the death of 5-year-old Kamden Johnson – the Alabama boy who died in August after being left in a hot day care van. The amendment is attached to an appropriations bill that is set to be voted on later this week.

She's baaaack......Sarah Palin Heading to Alabama To Campaign for Roy Moore

And the devil is in the details:

Palin will be part of a bus tour put on by the Great America Alliance, an organization of grassroots activists solidly in support of the agenda President Trump campaigned on last year.

Great America Alliance is led by former Trump White House aide Andy Surabian,
while former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon—who has assumed his previous position as executive chairman of Breitbart News—is a senior adviser to the organization.

“Palin plans to barnstorm Alabama the week prior to the special election to double down on her strongly stated support of Judge Moore,” a source familiar with the former Alaska Governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee’s planning told Breitbart News. “Gov. Palin is a conservative rock star and her presence in Alabama is sure to seal the deal for Judge Roy Moore,” said a second source told Breitbart.
