Another POS move flying under the radar a bit

Just was over on another website reading about the situation in Louisiana. Eviction notices set to go out 10/8 for over 30,000 nursing home residents due to proposed Medicaid cuts. Effective July 1. Not a 100% done deal yet, but close to it.

I had gotten sort of down today. Not sure why.

But with a "Caddyshack" and "Blazing Saddles " doubleheader tonight it helps....

Whatever Mueller has found could be disappointing.

On the other hand, whatever Mueller has found could be remarkable.

On the other, other, other hand, Mueller may not even be the last person over seeing this investigation.

See what happens and meanwhile.....vote....and drag grandma with you....but don't tell her I said so....

interesting diversion, "The Manchurian Candidate"is on STDIO right now.

Watching Scarface and heard a line Dems should consider.

Pacino is lecturing his security chief : "We are just not hungry anymore!"


To me, this is the state of the Democratic party. We had a good run under Obama and then went on vacation (okay, not everyone). But it is true that we do not fight fire with fire. We have the majority of voters (barring suppression efforts). The truth in my opinion is we may not have the comfort zone to overcome the right wing propaganda machine. Too much work, not enough money

Here is the truth:

We only have to win this battle in 2018 and 2020. It is right around the corner. Citizens United, Gerrymandering. Voter suppression. FCC rules. Collective bargaining. All of these things CAN be reversed and must be reversed. But it will not happen unless all of us try to influence the turnout.

Contact local groups who think the same way and go have a cup of coffee. There are more than you think and it is not that hard to do. If you don't want to hold a sign on a street corner, at least donate what you can.

Sessions will be in charge of investigating Cohen??? WTF??

Saw an article at Raw Story which said Sessions would lead the investigation into Michael Cohen. Since Cohen is being investigated for many things, including ties with Russia, meetings in Prague, etc., how can Sessions "un-recuse" himself?

I smell a rat.........pretty much every day now.

Sorry if this has already been discussed. I didn't see anything indicating that it has been.

I know we are all impatient to see what unravels in this gigantic ball of crime twine

But I am beginning to think that the evidence being uncovered is so vast, so multi-layered and includes such a large number of people in various countries, that this may take a long time. Which is not a bad thing necessarily, as long as the investigations are allowed to continue until complete. 2018 is just going to be the beginning. So much is interconnected, state, federal and international.
I just want to see some key players nailed prior to November.

Props to Mary Nam, Seattle ch. 4 news anchor for speaking up about Sinclair

I wonder who else may follow suit.

I had noticed that my favorite local news was seeming more conservative. Crap!

For quite a while now it seems like any time there is a politically volatile issue, they give a disproportionate amount of air time to the conservative "take" on the issue. Then they allow a much shorter alternative viewpoint, if at all. This station has always bragged about "getting the facts."
So I just googled Sinclair and looked at a listing of their stations. Sure enough, WCYB, channel 5, Bristol, VA, was purchased by Sinclair in 2017.
I guess I'll be watching channel 11 from now on. Fine with me.

Infowars Jerome Corsi (heart attack waiting to happen) wants to fight Mueller. Good grief!

That guy looks like he has to pack a suitcase to walk to the refrigerator.
