        Greetings, western sis! Are you sweating as much as I am, both from the weather and from the state of the nation etc?

          We are actually comfortable (today).
          I’ll be doing my annual trek to Georgia at the end of the month. I’ll wave as I fly near you 😘

            Indeed, I too am comfortable … IF I don’t move around!!! My a/c died last year and I was in no hurry to replace it because of my lovely trees and the general coolness of the house in the past. However this year the fans just aren’t helping unless I sit in from of them. When I do move the sweat just rolls off. So I’ve given in and called the a/c + heater people and am now hoping the new efficiency heater and air conditioner set that’s due for installation tomorrow will make a difference.

            Re your annual trip, I’ll remember to look up to see your wave as you fly nearby and I might even wave back. 🙂

                😉 😉 I think it’s still lovely (did some repairs about a month or so ago), but it has actually been hot, despite the large maple tree. Well, hot when I move around watering the plants, not to hot when I sit/stand still on the deck looking at said flowers. I don’t want to say this too loudly but I think I am sorta-kinda looking forward to winter; or at least to fall.

      We need to “revoke” the WH imposter. It has to be found that Russia STOLE the election for him. Scalia stole the election for Bush II was bad enough, but for a foreign enemy stole it for the orange-stool-bag.

      TY, and it’s painful to see, Judith. I think it’s most painful because I never in my wildest dream imagined that in the USA a malignant ‘leader’ could have gotten away with so much, so blatantly, with no one administering any pressure on the braking system. I hear a lot of talk but I see the train careening along with him and his minions yelling happily and boldly out the window. I can’t wait to see what changes November 6 will bring!

    I am convinced that Trump is not the only one who need to go, the Republican House and Senate is just as bad as Trump. November is the beginning of getting rid of them. I hope Brennan continue to speak his mind.

      Schiff explains how Trump has once again broken the law. Clearances are pulled when someone has released classified info which Brennan has NOT done – but Trump HAS done. And btw an enemies list is how it works in a dictatorship. Fmr CIA Director McLaughlin said Trump revoking Brennan’s security is a clear move towards Authoritarianism.

          Yeah, I watched … I was reminded he joined that crowd that has to start with something like “Not that everybody agreed with everything Obama did … ” Who cares about that, with trump in the WH now? Concentrate on not agreeing with what trump does, in my book. Not President Obama! End of rant.

          Other than that, enjoy your evening, GGail!

    While I don’t doubt what folks say about Omarosa being a total conniver, opportunist and perhaps craven BEE-ATCH, have you noticed how poised, striking and well-spoken she is? Specifically, she’s 1000X more articulate than prez blabbering fuckface.

        Wouldn’t that be wonderful! ICYMI, Lawrence O’Donnell just did his “Last Word” segment on Aretha Franklin. Said he’d been at her birthday party in 2015 and she implied to him that she watched his show – cool. He wished her well on behalf of her gazillion friends around the world, and played a clip of her singing at President Obama’s Inauguration. Sob.

      While I don’t agree with the lead singer’s violence, the Trump supporter needs to understand that people have a right to voice their concerns and dislike of Trump in any forum. If he doesn’t like that, he’s free to leave. He doesn’t get to limit other people’s voices when it comes to speaking out about Trump.

        I know I’ll think of that, every time something like this happens.

        This is almost as bad as the feeling all of us kids had back in the ’50s, when we thought the “dirty rotten Commies” were going to come down our street and kill our family. I remember being afraid of the Russians at night, in my safe home in the United States, just because of something I heard during the day or during our “air raid drills,” at school – even though I know now that they didn’t really know, in particular, that my family and I existed!

        Thanks, trump.

      If HE did this so blatantly, A lot of other wealthy Republicans in Congress did or are doing it too. Now that the Russians have picked the Rethugs as their party and partners in crime they ALL need to be investigated.

    Morning everyone. I agree with this. They are not “afraid” of trump…they don’t slap him down because they like/agree with what he does. WE know this…but others need to recognize this. NOW. Both sides, my ass.

      August 16, 2018 at 11:50 am

      The Rethug-Putin-Party are letting this orange turd be their mouth piece. They know that they can not win elections without cheating and lying to the public. He says things they only hinted at and never came out and said until now. Their silence and soft push back if any push back is just a act and they are rotten actors.

    WHAT MOST OF US AT THE DIARY…ALREADY BELIEVE…**Good Read**

    They’re embarrassed by him here and there (tweets), and they disagree with him here and there (tariffs).

    But for the most part, they don’t complain too much out loud or carefully limit the scope of their complaints when they do because they’re with him on the most fundamental commodity in politics: power, and its use. Trump’s anti-democratic instincts, which are so dangerous to so many of us, do not trouble Republicans in the least.
