So the all mighty Reps. party is now reduced to fighting with a bird from a television show aimed at young children. I think Cruz was the one a few yrs. back that read Green Eggs and Ham on the floor of the Senate so he could filibuster something. I'm not sure this group can go any lower. They are in part still afraid to break too far from the orange loon they supported so well in his four yr. wave of destruction. The media is quick to give lots of credit to the R's while Pres. Biden's piles up wins. Meantime, a lot of those same R's knows they are on a tightrope and sometime this yr. they are going to have to own their folly by turning from the Loon.

All of the tortured souls ( otherwise known as dumb Reps. ) who bet on the Loon are going to have to be ( as many as possible as soon as possible ) ushered out of their seats permanently so we can get on with Democracy. Some pain but if we can do this it won't matter. That certainly would stand for those who aided and abetted the Loon. Still fills me with deep and strong irritations that so many knew he was nuts but their greed for money and power over rode all else putting us all in extreme danger many, many times. I am not the forgiving soul I'd like to be. Maybe it is just I don't like hypocrites and traitors to our Constitution.

Divine, I so love that last one about a monster under the bed. So true for now, for sure. It boggles my mind as to how the R's ( even with suppression ) don't seem to be on much of a path to having a healthy, viable party. They are eating their own as the worst of the worst ( Gosar, Boebert, Green, Cruz, and several others ) take their aggressive and hostile stances.

We can only hope some of the latest rulings will get some Jan 6 information in the hands of the 1/6 committee and that along with the over all dis-array added to the fact that Pres. Biden is actually doing well, will turn the tide and help Democratic voters see they need to show up in huge numbers.

Like ruth, I have become a new pet mom. I’ve been looking for a rescue dog for about 9 months. I saw a picture of my new baby last week and knew she was the one. She is a rescue from Texas and was flown to CA by a rescue organization. After being spayed, micro chipped, and given a clean bill of health (3 weeks ago) she is now mine. She is a year old and her name is Pumpkin. She is funny, lively, friendly, and very sweet. Here she is with my younger dd who rushed over to my house this morning to meet her. She weighs a whopping 7 1/2 lbs.

Oh Caryn, Congratulations!!!! A bonus will be seeing your kids a lot too as Pumpkin will be an extra draw to get together. So much fun!

Happy, happy and congrats Exbrnxgrl to your newly rescued friend. She is a charmer. I know I would tend to nick-name her Punkie. Have no idea about dogs but cats are said to respond better to names that end in IE - like Callie, Dilly, Dally, Jimmie -- which are just a few of the names around here. Love the white on her face and chest. I offer a toast to a long happy life with Punkie and she with you.

and I read that the judge in this case has something about Trump as the ring-tone on his phone. Guess who is going to get possibly really good treatment before this guy. Just really imagine if he were black or brown. Grrr.

This is the same judge who declared that the people Rittenhouse shot weren't "victims", and the prosecution could not call them such. They instead could use the words "looters" or "rioters" if they chose. Biased much?

I'm so disgusted with the Loon's crowd. People who should know better, and people who should never take an oath they don't intend to keep. Well maybe the Loon wasn't anywhere near the radar when this judge took his oath, but it doesn't matter. If these people don't recognize ( meaning they see themselves as perfectly normal ) their biases, then they should have to go back to school to learn about biases and oaths and if we don't see improvement -- they should be replaced. Too many people getting let off and too many people paying a price they don't owe. It's disgusting and tiresome in the extreme and period.

Not quite daily, but way too much the Loon continues to take up much of our time. The only way to be rid of him is to get rid of the people who think they have to continue to cater to him and his horrendous ideas. I've read over and over ( even while I've seem some people pulling away ) that Loon will not be actually running in '24. His businesses are on the downslide pretty good -- all losing money and his new way to get money is to keep his grift going by allowing as many as possible to believe he will run in '24. Still I do know he is BAD for the Reps. party and he can continue to cause them grief. I just would like to see him out of the news cycles a lot more than he is. It was said if people would start turning off the news when the " he is going to run in '24 and wipe everyone totally out " comes on -- the media might catch on and quit treating us to the fear and upset. No longer sure of that. They are stuck it seems heavily in trying to keep up the ratings.

Agree Minus Two. I really think the Trump talk of running is more for a money flow to himself, but it is so worrisome that so many R's continue to hold him up as their "standard" allowing people like the extreme right to encourage bad issues and we get people like Gosar and others to keep the pot boiling over. We can't let down our guard -- knowing we are all sick of Trump and his kind and long to be done with it. It is dangerous to rest too long or look away too often.

So true Divine. It is a sad day when we try to avoid the help so long and carefully crafted by medical scientists and volunteers in studies of life-saving vaccines. I suppose even the Loon is not entirely responsible since there are always nay-sayers to anything and everything who must put out the contrary view because they can have some stature for a time. I really don't know how I would have done as a parent w/o shows like Sesame St. and Mr. Rogers to help put a bit of cement on things I hoped my children would learn well. Always thought of it as so positive to have non-parental back-up in forms so acceptable to little ones.

He is coming off like a boy scout and I think something of a bully with a weapon fits better.
