OK, just got home and getting ready to eat chocolate, drink wine and watch Rachel on DVR

I might even watch it again when it comes on at midnight!

"Marsha Blackburn is a Liar"! Tag Loudon ne of Bredesen's latest ad.

Here in TN, former much respected Dem Governor is running for Corker’s Senate seat against right-wing, batshit crazy Marsha Blackburn.

He called her out by having women who worked for him in business, when he was mayor of Nashville, and when he was Governor, speak emphatically about how he has always had zero tolerance for sexual harassment. They closed with “Marsha Blackburn is a liar! A liar. A liar. A liar.”

It did m heart good to hear her called what she is.

Too old to go to Women's March so we're sponsoring college students so that they can go.

At 70+ with some health issues, it's not wise for me to go to the Women's March in January though I'd love to. Long bus ride, sleeping on the bus, long distance walking, etc.

But, my friends and I have some $$ so I suggested that we sponsor young women to attend. They have the stamina but not the $$. We have some $$ but not the stamina. And, it would get some young people involved and committed to political activism at least for this. I can only imagine how inspiring it will be.

So, we contacted a College nearby, my friend had a contact there, and so far we have 25-30 young women who want to go. We can help them with more fund-raising, just to be sure they've got skin in the game, but we can help with a large part of the expenses.

Another friend is working with a college in the middle part of the state and thinks they have 10-20 who'll commit.

So even when we can't do something, we can help others do it. And, it has the benefit of getting young people more involved the political process. We're thinking it could be a win-win-win operation.

Kushner's new, deeper voice. What's up with that?

He no longer sounds like a girl.

Has he been working with a voice coach? Deeper, husky sound now.

"It's about punishing everyone who looks like Brett Kavanaugh" says Tucker Carlson

https://www.yahoo.com/news/tucker-carlson-apos-punishing-everybody-121652615.html

“Democrats aren’t looking for justice here,” Carlson said. “They want a revolution. For 60 years they’ve been telling us that it is immoral to judge people by their skin color and they were right about that. Absolutely right. They put up a monument to Martin Luther King on the National Mall just in case we forgot. And yet, suddenly, without notifying the rest of us, they have changed the rules. Anyone who doesn’t judge others on the basis of skin color, is, wait for it now, a bigot. Refuse to commit racism? You’re a racist.”

What hold do Russians have over 45? Watch Fargo Season 2 (or is it 3?).

The story is about how a business borrowed some money from the Russians and instead of being allowed to pay it back, the Russians took over the business, leaving the owner as the front man, turned it into a money laundering operation, and used violence (and murder) to maintain their control.

This is what I think 45 is dealing with. Terrified of his Russian owners because they'll use destruction and violence to get their way.

Ray Suarez say "A Puerto Rican cares about the President's Cup only is if it's filled with water."

On MSNBC just now. Actually he said some thing more like "cold, clean, drinkable water".

Trump and his Puerto Rico bankruptcy

Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble.

@AureliaGroup

Massive debt you and your sons helped when you bankrupted your golf course & never paid back the $33 million bond you left Puerto Ricans with.
You remember because you filed for the bankruptcy a month after you started running for president in 2015.
So how much are you going to give back of the $600,000 paycheck you got for sticking Puerto Rico with a $33 million debt?
You are a fraud, shit businessman and a terrible President racking up a civilian body count. #Resign

Joe Scarborough - Morning Joe - "My party is going to straight to Hell!"

I woke up this morning, turned on the TV and it was still on MSNBC. It was just at the beginning of Joe Scarborough's righteous rant and it shocked me that even he is saying this at the top of his voice! Wow!

I don't normally watch this but maybe I should. Scathing about the NATO visit and T's failure to to participate in even the appearance of mutual support. Noted his obsequiousness to the Saudis. A few minutes later he went into the most righteous rant about the GOP (Mulvaney esp.) lying about the impact of the budget, the incredible tax and estate benefits to the super-wealthy (esp. the Waltons). The cuts to Medicaid injuring the "poorest of the poor" and saying over and over that the GOP was lying! He said if this is what you intend to do, embrace it! Don't lie about it! Stop lying!

Maybe I should watch Morning Joe after all!

I could've thought I was watching/listening to Bernie Sanders except I think that Joe was even more angry.

What a wake-up moment this AM.
