Question One – When might we expect to see Representative Mark Amodei  (R-NV2) hold a town hall meeting to explain to the 22,500 constituents who have health insurance via the Affordable Care Act in his district why repealing the ACA is such a great idea?

Question Two – If the Trumpster Administration shuts down the multi-agency investigation of contacts and ties to the Putin regime, will the beltway media slink off quietly into the night, or will the press pursue the story?

Question Three: Will we have to subscribe to foreign newspapers to find out the results of investigations into collusion between the Trumpster and the Russians?

Question Four – How quickly will Trumpster cabinet members find out that running a government department dealing with real issues affecting real people isn’t fun when reality clashes with their ideological fantasies?

Question Five – Will the Democratic Party get started today planning…

Now I want you little sisters to remember this one thing if you don’t recollect another thing: dying ain’t the worst thing that’ll ever happen to you. The worst thing is to die before you get your call. And let me tell you the truth as I know it. You there, you lean in and listen well. Some folks don’t die at all. Some folks just leave. The wild will call and they’ll be gone, just like that. And the choice between the two is yours. You can die off like some poor ol’ feral cat, or you can leave when the call comes. And it will come one bright day, whether you answer or not. But you’ve got to listen, you know. The loudest words ain’t never said out loud, and the wisest words are plain and barely spoken above a whisper. And the wild’s call will…

Good Morning!! The light is fading; the darkness is rising. We are on the precipice of a national tragedy, a global cataclysm. We must take time to mourn and then gird ourselves for political battl…

How my heart speaks


Who never lost, are unprepared
A Coronet to find!

The Emperor will say?
How many Colors taken
On Revolution Day?

How many Bullets bearest?
Hast Thou the Royal scar?
Angels! Write “Promoted”
On this Soldier’s brow!

Grieve, get you and yours safe and start. Now.


Facebook is really screwed for me tonight; it won’t let me stay logged in. Maybe it’s just as well. Polls are screwed, the DOW is screwed, NATO has 300,000 on alert, we are screwed. If this goes the way it appears it might, Liberals are going to have to buy guns. Canada won’t let us all in. You all want it, the future of hate, poverty, death and destruction are here. We are the life of Mad Max come real. Goodby Medicare, Social Security, womens  health, ACA, the Supreme Court, National and State parks, child care, home care workers support, student loans, federal minimum wages, public jobs, the environment, clean water, the UN, Estonia. The nature of Trump….the nature of all that is unholy in the Republican party, and the loss of the Fourth Estate; we have left only the shards of ethics, fairness and inclusivity.
