Thank you for the hearts

Thank you to the people who gave me some hearts!

Just Thinking... Two current House Republicans that Dems might be willing to consider backing

Dan Newhouse (Washington's 4th District) and David Valadao (California's 22nd District).

Both of these voted to impeach Trump, survived primaries against far-right Trumpians, are from Blue states and have to deal with a fairly large contingent of Democratic voters in their district, so although they talk and vote the Republican line, they also seem to be a bit more willing to actually do their job.

Newhouse has been around awhile. There are pockets of his district that are becoming more blue, almost purple. He has to be aware of that and could be part of why he felt he could withstand a vote to impeach and still win his district.

I think Valadoa is in a lean Democratic district. Not sure how new he is, or much about him, other than he voted to impeach.

Both seem to be above the fray and willing to at least work for a functioning government. And they voted to impeach, so I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they want a democracy and a Congress that works.

There are some Repubs who wouldn't vote for them, but maybe there are some Dems who would? They have to be better than the names I'm seeing on the news....

President Biden addressing Irish Parliament

Live now On CNN, MSNBC, CSPAN. (Not on Faux)

Hope I did this correctly, I have never started my own thread before…

Thank you

Thank you For the welcome. I’ve been lurking for a few years and finally decided to take the plunge to become an actual member. Such a wealth of information here! It’s a learning experience every day.

My library does do ILL, but I was able to get one e-book using my Libby app and then I happened to think about the Gutenberg Project due to the age of the books. Sure enough, both Cooper and Du Bois books were downloadable to my kindle. Found a few other books that looked promising that I tagged for later.

Thank you

For sharing this article. If it was shown on tv news, I missed it.

Thank you Col Davis, for your service.

And thank you to this administration and POTUS for getting this done.

I would welcome a change, but only if

We were to go all standard time, like Arizona and Hawaii.

My inner clock would be happy with that

Thanks for sharing this

Great article! I've bookmarked for later reference, going to see if I can get some of these books from the library.
