    It’s pretty well-documented that the people with the least are more likely to share what they have than the 1%ers.

      -so moving. He said “I’m trying to worship our Creator through food”. His response to a time when he himself had no money is to create a world of beauty. Meanwhile the far right religious Trumpies try to foist their Hell minds on the rest of us.

    Dicktraitor/McConnell/KOCH hell strategies.
    “It’s a massive tangle of false claims, but the intended (Trump) ultimatum was clear: Stop investigating me, or nothing will get done.”
    ‘”Welcome to the era of constitutional beanball. How Republican dirty tricks got even dirtier.”
    “Constitutional hardball remains reciprocal but not symmetrical.” (Putin party has gone further right than Dems have to the left.)
    “One party, the Republican Party, has become especially identified with hardball tactics, with large consequences for our constitutional system.”

    = Comparing various hardball and beanball. (e.g. Blocking investigations into Kavanaugh was beanball.)

    OMG! Started watching the PBS special on Mr. Rogers and on his first national show in 1968 was a segment on a border wall and fear of change in the backdrop of the Vietnam War. More than 50 years later and we are still dealing with an outmoded, ineffective, inhumane and racist idea if a border. Sometimes I just can’t.

      It is kinda hard to ignore what the President is doing. I think he qualifies to be an emotional vampire besides Narcissist and a pathological liar. So advice to stay away from them does not work for our whole Country.

        Thought he fits the bill as an emotional vampire, I wasn’t really talking about the orange ass. I meant it for anyone that you know like this… the times we are in need us to be clear thinkers and not involved with those that you know personally that suck the life out of you. Best to move on

    Well, that was fun. Had a little dialogue, in the middle of comments on a social media post about a State Police emergency management squad/task force. From the photos, it looked like a very large team, which was maybe 99.7% white. So I commented, in the middle of all the plaudits others were posting, “Doesn’t look like a very diverse crowd.” The first guy to respond suggested I “join them.” The second started with “Ahhh” and continued with a patronizing comment that I wouldn’t be trying “to figure out what nationality they are” if the squad members were helping me “in a distressed situation.”

    Just about sure both saw me as non-white. Allow me to just repeat it was fun responding. I’m sure you can imagine those details. If more people post after I included the fact I was “a 72-year-old white woman, not that it should matter,” I’ll have more fun with ’em.

    For now, I’m just eating another piece of candy, from the stash I keep handy when I reward myself. 🙂

      I don’t feel bad for them at all. In fact I urge all Trump supporters to buy as many MAGA hats as possible, use up all their savings …. to help pay for Trump family’s legal fees (read that somewhere).

      I remember when the 2017 tax law for the rich and infamous was made law that there were serious (bad) consequences for many ordinary Americans that would take effect when they file 2018 tax returns in 2019 and even worse consequences are slated to occur after the 2020 elections for the same kind of effect when voters file their 2020 returns in 2021. Very careful timing to give the GOP cover for the 2018 and 2020 elections. Deliberately timed. Let’s surprise them and send the GOP, including the liar-in-chief, packing when we vote in 2020!

      The sound of dog tags chiming was the only indication we had, years ago, that our beagles had managed to get a platter full of cooked beef short ribs onto the floor to be eaten in record time. They even got their mess all cleaned (licked) up before we caught them. Both were very happy that evening even if we weren’t.

      I’ve seen comment from several Democrats about the passing of Republican Congressman Walter B.Jones of Farmville N.Carolina. I’ve seen were Speaker Pelosi tweeted about him.

    Just leaving this here:
    “Germs are not a real thing. I can’t see them. Therefore, they’re not real.” (Fakes News host Pete Hegseth)
    “…don’t think I’ve washed my hands for 10 years. Really, I don’t really wash my hands ever.”
    Says he’s immune and he may be lucky so far. But are we/his children immune to whatever illness he may be carrying?
    –Mega Duh. From the mid-19th century the germ theory of disease is so thoroughly documented. Is why we have Immunology and great detailed understanding of how our bodies battle viruses and bacteria.

      What is the right wing game here? Is it a pox on you situation? Is the President professing not to believe in the dangers of HIV Aids when he fires his Advisory Board? Or is the new generation supposed to be magically immune to that too.
