Answer? NO!

July 30, 2018

One of the things that bothers me about this, MM, other than the obvious,

is driving way out to an isolated area. If he had decided to do you harm, who would be around to help you or at least call police or offer to be a witness?

Glad it turned out the way it did.

No kidding!

This is gaining momentum. The more you learn, the more things start to connect. Some very dark and serious things.

That wouldn't surprise me.

I love the comments that mention “moving the goalposts.” That’s EXACTLY what they’re doing. I’m glad that recognition is spreading!

SAG/AFTRA here.

Honestly, I don’t understand why ANY union member would be a republi-CON I just don’t get it. The GOP doesn’t care about workers. They side with business.

Another white woman here.

Or as far as I know (being an adoptee). I am PROFOUNDLY embarrassed and disgusted by these displays.

I look at it like a responsible mother would. The kids won’t share their toys? Won’t play nicely with their toys? Then you take their toys AWAY.

Maybe that’s what should happen to this whole “whites are supreme” thing. Maybe that so-called “supremacy” should end.

And you’re right. This was never a white country. The tribes and other indigenous people the Northern Europeans encountered centuries ago were decidedly not “white.”

Well lookie there.

Maybe it’s just how my phone is showing this, but now it’s right-side up. It came out sideways when I posted it.

The artwork is a blow-up of a Der Spiegel cover from last year. They had several great ones.

OY the backache! All that bending over.

And lifting and digging and more bending over. Weight-lifting, too. BIIIIIIIIIG bags of mulch. Last week I worked in the front all morning, quit in the midday heat, and before wrapping everything up for the day, turned the hose on myself. Felt sooooooo good.

Welcome to DU, notKeith!

That's eight in a single tweet.

The Washington Post and the New York Times have been trying to keep a running tally of how many times trump lies. They've each come up with tentative totals of several thousand. I think those figures they give are extremely modest. I think it's more like you add a zero to the end of whatever number either paper figured.

Welcome to DU, OldManTarHeel!

He sure doesn't act like an innocent man. Anyone who really did not collude or otherwise climb into bed with Putin and give aid and comfort to an enemy - would welcome any investigation because they'd be confident that nothing would turn up.

Maybe that's why the Clintons didn't try repeatedly and deliberately to sabotage any of the umpteen-thousand "investigations" of them. I heard one talking head a few days ago ask - HOW MANY indictments in the Benghazi probe? ZERO. HOW MANY indictments in the "but her emails!" inquisition? ZERO. How many here, so far? Oh, only about a few DOZEN.

As Michael Avenatti said, when he FIRST came on the scene months ago: "Those who have nothing to hide - hide nothing." Hell, even Trey Gowdy broadly inferred that trump isn't acting like an innocent man. Recommended that trump act like one (which of course, we all know he CAN'T).

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
