Not surprising.

We have a longtime DUer who can't sign in.

I got this facebook note from Babyonsister:

Some website (was trying to get the newest version of FlashPlayer) deleted all my links, p/w's, etc., including DU. Would you mind dropping Skinner a note for me letting him know I cannot get in/DU won't recognize my e-mail address. Very frustrating; I've tried to e-mail them but no success. Now I don't know what to do other than to sign in with a new name; think I would lose my recent donation if I did that.

Can anyone lend a hand? She's really frustrated not being able to participate here.

On her behalf, thanks!

Nice gig.

The House of Representatives is back from vacation. They’d better get busy, there’s much to do and they only have a week-and-a-half before their next vacation.

Has it occurred to anyone else that Trump is fully capable of hiring someone to pretend to attack him? He certainly wouldn't be the first to manufacture a casus belli.

Just a thought.

Scraping by

Okay, where’s that classroom?

In the section on Dealing With Transformational Candidates Who Shatter Glass Ceilings somebody is augmenting instruction on Hyperbolic Instant Outrage with lessons on Pole Vaulting Over Mouse Turds.

Exactly who is setting that curriculum? Is it somebody next door? Or is it being composed by someone in the building on the other side of the road? Either way, it’s nasty!

Eww, now I need to go scrape something off the bottom of my shoe . . . again.

“Protesting used to have consequences.”

Trump says “protesting used to have consequences.” He’s right.

Then we fought a revolution and won, and protest was written as a valued and legally protected part of the conversation of democracy.

Trump must have learned history at his defunct university.

Douglas Bruce taken from courtroom in handcuffs after being given 2-year prison sentence

The Author of Colorado's Taxpayer's Bill of Rights is headed to prison for two years after he was sentenced Friday for violating the terms of his probation in a tax evasion case.

Douglas Bruce, a former state representative and El Paso County Commissioner, was taken away from a Denver courtroom in handcuffs after a Denver District Judge said he left her "no choice" in facing a prison sentence.

"The probability of your success on probation is zero," said Judge Sheila A. Rappaport, adding that she did not approve of his conduct during the hearing, which spanned three court dates over several months.


Is it wrong to hope someone throws away the key?
