My birthday present ... very useful

Some of my family asked what i wanted for my b-day (tomorrow) and
I said a new toilet would be nice. The old one leaked from the tank
into the bowl and it would clog up at almost nothing and so as i type
a plumber is putting a new one in. Don't tell me I don't live an exciting

BTW I have put in @ least 6 to 10 toilets in my life but it is really nice
to watch somebody else do it for a change.

How to stop the Russian/GOP talking point about '16

Trump and the GOP keep saying that the reason he won and Hillary lost is because that he, Trump, went back to states such as Wisconsin and Hillary didn't and that is why he "won."

That is false and easily proven. Now Russ Feingold was at >90% chance of winning and he sure didn't leave the state to work someplace else and yet he still lost.

The reason Trump won was massive Russian interference and inside help from the GOP and members of the Trump Campaign such as Brad Prascale who told the Russians where they needed to work.

Does anybody know what happened to Weather Underground's on line web site?

For years it was my go to weather site but for the past 1/2 year or so
it no longer has any content and or radar maps.

I see the named used on the Weather Channel but its on line presence is now nothing.

Can we get a list of all GOP Senators who took Russian money*? And before they vote on Trump's

innocence or guilt as per the articles of impeachment.

* Or visited Russia in 2018 or got NRA (aka Russian) money in 2016?

I would be real interested in if Marsha Blackburn has gotten Russian money too.

ATTN Moscow Mitch no fucking way

Your deal is to go ahead and start the trial in the Senate and then you'll promise to be fair about witnesses and evidence being allowed to be in play.

Sure we can trust you just like with Merrick Garland and the Kavanaugh hearings investigation into Brett's past behavior.

Fuck you Moscow Mitch.

White House: Trump was 'just riffing' about late Rep. John Dingell 'looking up' from hell

Source: https://news.yahoo.com/trump-dingell-looking-up-fr

The White House on Thursday said President Trump was “just riffing” when he suggested at a Michigan rally that Democratic Rep. Debbie Dingell’s late husband, Rep. John Dingell, was in hell, “looking up.”

“It was a very, very supportive and wild crowd,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “And he was just riffing on some of the things that had been happening the past few days.”

Grisham described Trump as a “counter-puncher.” During his campaign and since taking office, Trump has made many inflammatory statements that he or his press secretaries explained away as jokes.


At a rally in Battle Creek, Mich., on Wednesday night, Trump brought up the late congressman and his widow, who now holds his seat and voted, along with almost all the House Democrats, for impeachment.

“Debbie Dingell, that’s a real beauty,” Trump said, noting he was watching her on television during the impeachment proceedings.
