Me too!!

There's something missing in a person who kills for pleasure.

Yep, rather like swearing...

We’ve been socialized to believe that it is universally really bad, but it isn’t about being violent toward people - at least not for us Dems.

Stealing that for the next uninformed, goodie-2-shoes Democrat telling me, "well, I don't hate anyone and they're some good people in that party."
Yep good 'n brainwashed and they all tune into Faux why?

"God" is just a game-playing sadist.

And the game is rigged. "He" could've created us any way he wanted but then, where's the fun?!

This is so touching.

We adopted an 8yo black Lab 9 mos ago and just yesterday he gave me the first kiss and wet nose bumped. I was thrilled. 💕

I can just imagine the joy in this young lady's house now.

"Not in our lifetime"? But indeed in our children's

And grandchildren's for certain!!

It may take a million yrs to rid the planet of cockroaches but humans will be gone by the end of this century if we do not drastically change our ways of living and our numbers.

Doubt me? Please read Bill McKibben, Michael Mann, and others.

We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe, warns UN


...This is why Al Gore is concerned that human civilization may not survive the next hundred years. Because even though scientists are more certain that we are causing global warming than almost anything, the concerted political action required to address it remains an abstraction hovering on the horizon.

Our best scientists are telling us that they're surer than ever that the world is about to get apocalyptic, and exactly how it will do so. But if we're not listening now, then when?


"Not to worry, it’ll take a billion years...whew!"

You are very mistaken.

The thing that Trump knows

and uses with his minions: perception is everything.

His poll numbers go down, the GOP lawmakers take note and have less fear of him and stop supporting so many of his lies.

I can see a lot of advantages, starting with reducing

IQ45's power via reducing his poll #s and it's working.
2ndly, rattling him will cause him to take more errors.
3rdly, the more his Administrative minions think is being exposed the more likely they are to cooperate with Mueller and the SDoNY's prosecutors.
4thly, the more dominoes seem to be falling, the more quickly McConnell is likely to let the vote comes the floor to reopen government. Our economy is hurting and I'm not referring to the DOW.

In addition, I'm happy with talk of impeachment moving forward sooner and am aghast at the destruction Trump and his administration have caused to our country. Bill Maher said it best: "MSNBC, Hardball - Bill Maher: If We Don't Impeach President Donald Trump, Where Is The Bar?"
The sooner the better.

There are probably many more but I'm in a hurry.

Breaking on Lawrence: Cohen said Trump instructed him

To lie when he testified to Congress. This was while Trump was sitting in the Oval Office.

Tune in.

I've personally seen them.

My hubs, a retired NASA PhD physicist, was at first very skeptical, but is now convinced and says humans do not have the science to duplicate what I and others have seen. Many years ago he had a colleague who said he had seen some strange things. I was irritated that my husband didn't press for more information.

Yet most folks can believe in a sky daddy.
