Today's experience on the dating site...

I just had an unexpected, brief conversation with a Qanoner. 😵. Apparently I’m a left wing Marxist. 🙄.

Needless to say, he wasn’t interested in any further convo. ...I don’t know what we’d have said, anyway.

A petition on Change.org--Killing unsuspecting polar bear cubs... I can't stop crying.

“The Department of the Interior has big plans for oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which has grave consequences for the last remaining polar bears. The heavy trucks used for seismic surveys will crush undetected polar bear dens, causing mother bears to flee and leaving cubs defenseless. For this already threatened species, every cub matters.”

I donated...just can’t stop crying.

Fox's trending "news" today--drunk daughter fractures fathers skull.

Every day, lord fatass is destroying our world, and fux completely ignores what’s happening.

But any dirt on any democrat —no matter how old or tangential to current events—is red meat for days.

I hate them with a raging fiery fury.

Just had to vent that. Thank you for your attention. rant/off

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is reportedly out It's still unclear whether he has resigned

Source: Vox

Rosenstein reportedly resigned on Monday three days after the New York Times reported the deputy attorney general said he wanted to record conversations with President Donald Trump last year, and also discussed using the 25th amendment to remove the president from office. Rosenstein denied the report, and one source told the Times that the deputy attorney general had merely been joking.

But it looks like Rosenstein decided to leave his post anyway, and the White House accepted his resignation — although some report he was fired.

On one hand, he was committed to protecting the investigation from conservatives inside and outside Congress who believed it was biased against the president and had urged Trump to fire the special counsel. But Rosenstein couldn’t champion the investigation too much, or he’d draw Trump’s ire.
Rosenstein’s departure strikes at the heart of the Trump-Russia investigation because Mueller had to run major investigative decisions past the deputy attorney general. Rosenstein’s temporary replacement, Solicitor General Noel Francisco, could simply refuse to approve Mueller’s requests, effectively slowing the whole investigation to a crawl — or even fire Mueller outright if he felt there was a reason to do so.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco will temporarily replace. He could slow the investigation or even derail.

I am ANGRY!!!
