One of our political parties is a criminal enterprise

The repub party is that on so many levels from Congress to the WH. They serve corporate America not its people, they either cooperated with a hostile foreign power or covered up that cooperation, they have obstructed justice, allowed public corruption by the president or participated in it themselves, are currently trying to destroy our separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution, and I can go on and on, and others can add more.

It's not hyperbole to call the repubs criminals. They have violated numerous laws and are working to save their crime boss through any means possible, including destroying our democracy. That's a criminal organization.

Pete Buttigieg has everything except positions on major issues

From the LA Times:

Many things to like about Mayor Pete, not the least of which is his authenticty, which I think will be important in the general. But I happen to think detailed knowledge of the issues and ways to adress the many problems we face are much, much more important when it comes to beating rump and fixing the mess he will leave.

The fact that Pete is surging in the polls without providing any positions or specific policy proposals on major issues is troubling, to say the least, for several reasons. And saying "he'll be coming up with those later" doesn't make it less troubling.

Puppy snatched by aerial predator is recovering

The headline says it was an owl that snatched a puppy from the yard of its foster family but they don't know for sure what is was. Poor thing was found on a golf course but seems to be doing ok.

A foster dog named Latte is recovering from her injuries after being snatched from her home early Friday morning.

Her wounds appeared to suggest she was taken by an owl, according to her caregiver.

Latte, a 12-week-old, 11-pound Great Pyrenees and Saint Bernard mix, was taken at around 3:30 a.m. when she was outside the north Scottsdale home with three other puppies.
