Everything we need to know, we learned in kindergarten. Too bad Republicans missed that day.

Margaret, I am beginning to wonder if there are any grown ups left in the Republican party .

I ‘ve been asking myself that question since 2004 when George Bush got 35 more electoral votes and 4.1 million more popular votes than John Kerry. The next day he announced that he had political capital and he “intended to spend it ‘cause that’s the kind a guy I am.” I swear that man was the biggest jackass ever to live in the White House.

It was so good to see an adult take office in 2008 when Barack Obama won 192 more electoral votes and almost 10 million more popular votes than John McCain. But then the Republicans obstructionism in the Senate started and eventually, thanks to the dumb asses in the Tea Party, the complete collapse of any type of governing ramped up 2 years later in the House. They vowed Obama would be a one term President, and everything we learned in kindergarten went right out the window.

That's the name (@yahoo) in a series of emails I've received, from a friend whose email address has been spoofed. My system identified it as suspicious and my friend confirms that she hasn't changed her email info, so I haven't opened the mails and have no idea what the spoofer is trying to peddle.

Just curious to know if anyone else has gotten mail from that source...

Fern Lake Fire near Estes Park doubles in size; hundreds evacuated

(photos at link)
Strong, gusting winds drove a backcountry wildfire east toward Estes Park, burning a cabin and forcing hundreds of people to evacuate around 4 a.m. Saturday.

Wind continued to cause problems Saturday as the fire more than doubled in size to 3,584 acres in less than 24 hours. The wind also hampered firefighters’ efforts, grounding aircraft as smoke from the blaze in Rocky Mountain National Park could be seen from as far as Fort Collins.

Park officials say the fire started Oct. 9 after an illegal campfire grew out of control. After smoldering in heavily wooded areas for several weeks, the wildfire rekindled on Thanksgiving. As winds up to 75 mph arrived late Friday night, the fire roared east, with the most activity observed since it began.
