      The daughter of a friend of mine posted this yesterday on a non-political site. Those who replied knew exactly who she was talking about, without mentioning his name, which sorta struck me funny.

      A love song for when they’ve been “seeing the world” on separate planes, and then are heading back to each other, 26 years in. ❤

        Just saw them in Vegas at an “early bird” show. Bill Medley (the surviving member of the group) still sounding good at 78!

          Saw them decades ago (when they were still together, obviously) at a dinner-theater-in-the-round type place, where they both walked by our tables singing … OMG!!! Incredible voices, both of them. Glad Bill Medley is still around, still singing!

    Shot 5 police officiers and was later taken alive.
    The shooter was NOT a POC.

    • October 3, 2018 at 9:43 pm

      Were the shooter white? If he was a black, Muslim or hispanic, they would have been shoot 20 times or more and Trump would have been tweeted.

      Just coming back to post that, but thought I’d check first to see if it had already been posted. That image belongs in a museum about “women’s history.” Too bad we’re living (or re-living, in some of our cases) this particular part of the “women’s movement,” in this country. Ugh.

    there is something that always puzzles me about the people’s decision to register and vote:

    ;

    the people who are not registered to vote or chose not to vote are relatives of, friends of, or community members of someone who probably votes;

    ;

    why is it so hard to get these people to register and vote?

    ;

    for example, those Millennials are someone’s child, sister, brother or friend;

    ;

    could it be that sometimes, we try to influence people we do not know and yet ignore those who are closest to us?

    ;

    during the next couple of days before the registration ends, why can’t we have a day to focus on:
    ;

    (a) #RegisterYourDaughter and #RegisterYourDaughter;

    ;

    (b) #RegisterYourNiece and #RegisterYourNephew;

    ;

    (c) #RegisterYourMother and #RegisterYourFather;

    ;
    (d) #RegisterYourAuntie and #RegisterYourUncle;

    ;

    (e) #RegisterYourGrandma and #RegisterYourGrandpa;

    we need all hands on deck if we are to be able to salvage the soul of this nation

    Principles aside, FBI bends to pressure, Republicans have learned

    Rachel Maddow notes that the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh will not be made public according to FBI rules, though as Republicans have learned by now (and as the Hillary Clinton campaign can attest), FBI rules bend under pressure.

    Kavanaugh fails own test of judicial temperament

    Rachel Maddow reports breaking news that Mitch McConnell has announced that the FBI has submitted its report, as Chuck Grassley has set a schedule for the report’s viewing, and protesters against Kavanaugh’s confirmation hold vigils across the United States.

    AMBER ALERT ON GRAHAM AND RUSSIA.

    “The Democratic Coalition’s ongoing investigation just uncovered the following evidence linking SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM
    TO RUSSIAN OIL MONEY and campaign finance scandal”.
    Earth to media: Come in please.

    • October 4, 2018 at 10:37 am

      Sure helps to explain Graham’s crazed lying histrionics during the SC hearing.
      As I can only see Rachel and Lawrence about 2 hours after their show airs – and not all of it is video – was there any mention
      of Deripaska, Blatnik, Putin and Graham’s conspiracy last night or anywhere else on TV or radio? Crickets?

    • October 4, 2018 at 10:56 am

      McConnell, Grassley are violating all of us to seat Kavanaugh: Where is the big exposée on Russian conspiracy, Oil shares, promises of power and cash? Why obstruct the FBI and ignore obvious evidence of nominee unsuitability?

      Appold; “there was an edge and an obnoxiousness that I could see at the hearings.”
      “Kavanaugh “stood by and laughed at the victims.”
      “on multiple occasions, Brett Kavanaugh counting on his fingers, how many kegs they had over the weekend.”
      “an extreme amount of beer drinking for someone to consume at any age, let alone someone in high school.”
      “heard Kavanaugh “talk about Renate many times,” and that “the impression I formed at the time from listening to these conversations where Brett Kavanaugh was present was that Renate was the girl that everyone passed around for sex.” The classmate said that “Brett Kavanaugh had made up a rhyme using the REE NATE pronunciation of Renate’s name” and sang it in the hallways on the way to class. He recalled the rhyme going, “REE NATE, REE NATE, if you want a date, can’t get one until late, and you wanna get laid, you can make it with REE NATE.” (Kavanaugh claims he was chaste for many years in College.)
      Stephen Kantrowitz:“No one who lived in Lawrance Hall (so far as I know) has been contacted by the FBI What a charade.”

    Putin’s and the military: “Putin to link arms deal with India amid threat of U.S. sanctions.”
    “More than 20 agreements are expected to be signed during Putin’s visit in areas such as defence, space and economy, but military relations would likely be the main focus.” https://www.aljazeera.com/…/putin-ink-arms-deal-india-threat-sanctions-1810040646.
    India is the world’s biggest arms importer. “If the US decides to go ahead with its domestic legislation and invoke penalties/sanctions against New Delhi, it would test the resilience of the India-US bilateral.” (And btw Trump/Junior have their beady eyes on India.)
