A Christmas Carol: a heartwarming tale of how rich people must be supernaturally terrorized

(Good line..seen on Twitter)

"Trump is unfit to clean toilets in Obama's presidential library"......USA Today editorial!

USA Today is NOT a liberal newspaper. It does not strain the brain to read and understand it, and yet, has just come out and SLAMMED Trump for his Tweet about Gillibrand.

A president who'd all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama's presidential library or to shine George W. Bush's shoes:
With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.

This isnít about the policy differences we have with all presidents or our disappointment in some of their decisions. Obama and Bush both failed in many ways. They broke promises and told untruths, but the basic decency of each man was never in doubt.

Donald Trump, the man, on the other hand, is uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed.

stick a fork in him...he's so done.

For those who are curious, here's blue/red Ala. county results map.

( Taken earlier, too close to call time)

What this is showing you is the HUGE number blue votes in the Black Belt, that ribbon of blue from west to east below Montgomery.
Black voters came out in giant numbers, even more than for Obama, they are saying.
they white areas are the ones not yet counted at time of this graphic.

My county went to Moore by 32 votes.

I am happy to see our county is 49% sane. I am happy I went to vote.
don't know if those figures need a 2nd look.

Need a job? Here's a resume' winner:


Alabama Sno-geddon!!! check in...got pics?

Here in Harper Lee ville, it has been coming down for over a couple of hours and more predicted till wee hours.
a serious respectable amount. Sticking well to decks and stuff, little less stick to the wet lawns, but since the temps are dipping to high 20's, it should be around early am.
I expect to take pics tomorrow. First snow since 2010.

What about you?

Remember what happened to the FIRST guy who said kings were above the law:


At his trial in 1649, Charles I defended himself: ""No learned lawyer will affirm that an impeachment can lie against the King... one of their maxims is, that the King can do no wrong."

The great-grandfathers of the authors of the Constitution cut off Charles' head for that.

A reality check, in case you think you are the only one who has noticed:

Here's some examples how the tax bill favors Congress members.

Key GOP lawmakers maintain close ties to individuals connected to the booze industry.

The tax cut legislation includes a provision that cuts taxes on beer, wine, and liquor produced or imported into the country, saving companies involved around $4.2 billion over 10 years:

Sen. Bluntís son Andy Blunt is a registered lobbyist for MillerCoors
Sen. John McCain's wife McCain, owns of Hensley Beverage, a major beer distributor. Hensley Beverageís trade group, National Beer Wholesalers Association, lobbied in support of the very same special tax cuts that are in the bill.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, voted for opening drilling in Alaska. Her sister works for the Waterfall Foundation, an Alaska-based charity,
which has an oil biz. Board member and which gets big donations from oil industry.
