I think Mike Pence and the faith based approach is the right way to go

First, inject the virus into faith based folks. The first group would be your money grubbing hypocrites like Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell Jr. The second group would be money loving, Kool Aid drinking fuhrer followers, like Stephen Miller and Mike Pompeo.

After injection, subjects would be isolated for four weeks. The first group would receive no medical treatment, but they would receive thoughts and prayers. The control group would also receive no medical treatment, but they would NOT be offered thoughts and prayers.

Mike Pence would visit both groups in the quarantine area every other day. The next day he would report to the president. At no time would he wear protective gear, but he could drink bleach if he so desired. Should he happen to sneeze while reporting to the president, oh well.

To those of you think I might have borrowed this faith based approach from the publicans and sinners policy on mass shootings, you might be correct.

February 14th was my mom's birthday

So on DU, I got some hearts, gave some hearts and enjoyed the process. Thanks to my anonymous donors who gave me a heart. And to those who were given hearts: I hope you enjoyed them. Isn't it funny how a little bit of electronic stuff can make us feel better?

Thank you for the hearts!

The latest one just arrived.

Thank you for my Valentine heart!

I just mostly come here and post snarky comments.

Gavin Newsom expected to take executive action to abolish CA death penalty

Source: NBC 7 San Diego

Governor Gavin Newsom is expected to announce he is taking executive action to try to eliminate the use of the death penalty in California.
Two sources familiar with the governor's plans tell NBC4's I-Team that Newsom may use the governor office's authority to reduce sentences of all condemned inmates on death row.
Newsom has been calling elected officials around the state to share some information, but details are expected to be revealed at a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
NBC4 has reached out to a spokesman for the governor, but did not hear back.
Newsom has been openly advocating for a moratorium on the death penalty and told the LA Times this week that he has asked his legal advisers to research his options as governor.

Gavin, as someone who's been aware of you since you were a supervisor, I know you like big bold gestures. I support your stance on the death penalty, as I did your stance on same sex marriage (sent flowers to City Hall along with many others).

However, I always ask myself "Are you doing this because it's for the greater good or because you think it's good for you?"

I can't answer that question. Maybe some other DUers can help me out.

Fake news you can use

Trump just resigned.

The Nobel committee voted unanimously to award him the Peace Prize.

I wish I didn't have to make this stuff up.

Build a giant mushroom at the border and label it "Trump Penis"

It would gratify his ego and be cheaper than his wall.

I know I'd run if I saw it.

I've been wondering about why these "border beds" are such an issue in the shutdown talks

How will that money the Trump administration is asking for really be used?

We know that (as reported by Rachel Maddow in September) that they are already siphoning off funds from other programs:

The Department of Homeland Security transferred $169 million from other agencies to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for the detention and removal of migrants this year, according to a document sent to Congress by DHS.

Many of the transfers came from key national security programs, including $1.8 million from the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, $9.8 million from FEMA, $29 million from the U.S. Coast Guard and more than $34 million from several TSA programs. DHS also transferred $33 million from other ICE programs to pay for detention and removal, making the total amount of money transferred $202 million.

Now what are they going to do with all the new money they are asking for?

Detain all the asylum seekers that they are forcing to stay out of the country already?

Or order more concrete or steel slats so that Ozymandias can have his monument?

I want to know.

Oh, and thank you for my heart!

Oh, he finally shut up!

Yeah!

As I see it, there are two possibilities:

Either Trump was knowingly an agent of Russia, in which case he should be impeached and tried for treason

OR

Trump was an unwitting agent of Russia, in which case he is too incompetent to be president and should be impeached and throw to the Southern District of NY.

(I know what you're gonna say, he's already proved his incompetence.)
