Federal agents conduct immigration enforcement raids in at least six states

This just went up on the Washington Post website.

It demonstrates how they're going to do what they promised to do and it's scary. Who else can they turn the tactics on and when will they? This is un-American.

(It's not that damn long. Just read it.)

Problem solved! What to call whose name we won't speak

Laurence Fishburne was on The Daily Show tonight. (He's playing Nelson Mandela in a BET series about him)

Sharing the reluctance - or inability - of all right-minded people to speak the name of the abomination currently inhabiting the presidency, Fishburne refers to the current president by his chronology - "45"

Trevor Noah explained his laughter at that, saying that, in South Africa, "45" is slang for…

Are we all focused on the wrong things?

No question we are seeing something happen in our government that we've never seen before - an unqualified madman at the helm, claiming to put into effect programs and policies via executive order that only a minority of the citizenry favors and that most believe will harm the country and its people. Some are known from the outset to be unconstitutional, some are just illegal and others are outside the scope of the president's power. They're all extreme right…

Confirm Jeff Sessions? WTF?

There is an ad running on MSNBC supporting Sessions for Attorney General.

Has anyone seen an advertising campaign for a cabinet office before?

Suddenly he's a "a 'civil rights champion' who will 'put public safety first.'”

It's apparently sponsored by a…

THIS ISN'T POLITICAL

The shitwit governor of Fla just had the obligatory press conference to say evil is bad and we can't believe it could happen here and pray and HE HAS CALLED THE PRESIDENT ELECT AND VP-ELECT and they assured him they would do all they could to help.

Did he call the actual president? No. Asked why, he repeated his talking points over and over. Word. For. Word.

And he said this shouldn't be political, let's not make…

End of democracy - GUEST POST

So summarily doing away the ole Xmas spirit here, my fb feed popped up this interesting article that presents the demise of American democracy in a way I'd not seen or heard so clearly presented before, certainly never thought of on my own. But it does seem possible, possibly likely. Certainly likely if the "party before country" Republicans continue to succeed.



But here I am, away from home without a conventional keyboard or decent sized screen - and not any formatting options at… Continue

GUEST POST: With Biden in the chair on Jan. 3, the Senate can confirm a renominated Merrick Garland. Here's how.

I grabbed this from Daily Kos and am putting it up here as a "guest post" because I'm tired and want to go to bed, not sit up thinking. It's an interesting concept. Of course, I have no idea if this guy is on base with the legalities of it all. If only the Dems had the balls (that seems to keep coming up tonight so…

Cars - the rest of the story

A while ago I posted about buying my sister’s car after she bought a new one. And by “buying” I mean she gave it to me causing me no end of distress. It was a surprise, I had fully intended to pay her the trade-in value but she wanted to give it to me and said in any event she would not take more than ½ the trade-in value.

The last time I bought her car was in 2001. I…

OS comments won't post?

OS is particularly flaky lately. I've seen a number of people complaining their comments get lost. I'm guessing if they go back to the post they'll find their comment appears.

Here's my pretty consistent workaround.

  • Type your comment. 
  • Copy the whole comment. 

    Please don't include your name and picture and all that. It's annoying.)  
  • Click on the COMMENT box.  

    Your comment should disappear now.  …

Music - more facebook

My son posted this today and I love it. So I'm sharing it with you all.

It says:

Bach – is Bach

Handel – A more religious Bach

Mozart – A cuter, younger Handel

Beethoven – An angsty Mozart

Chopin – A less angsty Beethoven

Tchaikovsky – Chopin plus orchestra

Sniffles - conclusive

Not that I care at all though I certainly don't want a coke head for president. There are so many reasons to not want Trump as president. And one never wants to pass up an opportunity to bash a candidate so completely lacking any redeeming value.

How do his people even let him onstage with that sniffle? Are they that arrogant or just unable to control him>

I like Carrie Fisher and think she's a fairly admirable person. God knows I believe in her expertise in this…
