Kobach just lost

Please don't stress out now. Tell me the name and your best memory of a pet that you have had ....

... or still have.

1) Caesar .... Golden Retriever I was about 13 and the older boys would ask if I
wanted to go hunting w/them and BTW can you bring your dog too?

2) Mac... Yellow Lab about 100 LBS ...used to pull me on my cross country skis one time he
and I were on an icy road and I couldn't stop and he ran for about 1/4 of a mile.

3) Flubie .... black lab ..... when I took my son to the kennel and told him we couldn't get
a dog now but at the last minute I told him to go and talk to Sally about looking at picking out a pup.
He was 11 and started to cry and then when all the pups were out he waited across the lawn
and when the first pup got to him he said "that is the one."

Help me

I'm sitting at a bar and the guy next to me just told me that he had a hard time figuring out who the Republican who were running for judges were because he always votes GOP. Btw he has some medical issues, gets some government help, and he gets his news from Fox.

Good God in BUTTER what is the matter w/ people?

Btw as a kid I used to live next door to the Republican Governor of PA's brother and Gov. Ray Shafer was as fine of man as you would ever meet. And he was a Republican too.

Hillary Clinton Retweeted NowThis High school and college students of voting age are making a plan to march to the polls together next Tuesday. Make sure young voters you know don't miss out: https://walkouttovote.org/

Words from President Obama

If you're mad at politicians trying to take us back to the days of health insurers denying people with pre-existing conditions of care ... Vote.

If you're sick of politicians giving huge tax cuts to billionaires, only to tell you we have no choice but to slash Medicare and Social Security ... Vote.

If you're upset with politicians denying basic climate science as our communities continue to pay a steeper and steeper price ... Vote.

If you're outraged by politicians refusing to pass common-sense gun laws in the face of a tragic epidemic ... Vote.

If you're frustrated with politicians failing to adequately stand up for the rights of immigrants, or women, or LGBTQ Americans ... Vote. Vote. Vote.

Vote like our democracy depends on it, Tom. Make a commitment right now to get to the polls -- and get involved in these final 5 days.


Thank you,

Barack Obama


(not only a great President but he remembered my name too)

If you are in OH please vote for my friend Kathleen Clyde for Sec. of State.

She is the real deal.

Daily Beast: Americans Are Easy Marks for Russian Trolls, According to New Data


You don’t need to read the federal indictments to spot the moment Russia began targeting the United States with its army of internet trolls.

Just chart the American flag emoji. Best estimates trace the founding of the Internet Research Agency to August 2013, and for eight months of its existence the Saint Petersburg troll farm was focused on influencing citizens in Russia and Russia’s near abroad. Then in April 2014 the Kremlin-linked organization launched “Project Lakhta,” according to federal prosecutors, aimed squarely at the United States.

The IRA’s first American flag emoji appeared on Twitter the next month, first a trickle, and then a torrent. Over the next four years the Saint Petersburg troll farm unfurled 70,372 American flags, reaching peak flagness on August 12, 2017 when one IRA sock puppet crammed 43 flags into a single tweet with the hashtag “MAGA.”

snip

In the end the biggest contributor to the troll’s American success story was the divisiveness already present here, said Fox. “This content is still circulating because it resonates so well with people who are angry on both sides... It exploited an environment that we were and are living in.” Even the IRA’s decision to slather its content with American flags might have been a deliberate ploy. A series of experiments in 2008 demonstrated that being in the presence of the flag doesn’t inspire patriotic love of country, as one would expect, but instead reliably summons feelings of nationalism, defined by the scientists as “an ideology of superiority of the ingroup over outgroups and implies the exclusion or even domination of others.” In its secret campaign to sow division in the U.S., Russia may well have tried to weaponize Old Glory.

What Russia did and is still doing was and still is an act of war and Trump & company, Fox News,
McConnell, Ryan*, Trey Gowdy, the RNC, and others who worked hand and glove w/Russia in order
to gain political advantage and power are guilty of treason.

Breaking: The Mexican Army was defeated @ the Battle of Huixtla by "the caravan."

Just like the Bowling Green Massacre the Battle of Huixtla where the Mexican Army was beaten by unarmed parents holding their babies will go down in Trump history.

Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump
The Caravans are made up of some very tough fighters and people. Fought back hard and viciously against Mexico at Northern Border before breaking through.
Mexican soldiers hurt, were unable, or unwilling to stop Caravan. Should stop them before they reach our Border, but won’t!
