People who hoard money have a disease, an addiction.

Billionaires...even millionaires....who have a lot more than they need to make their lives easy, don't share, and still want MORE...it's not normal.

There have been studies done showing that once a person's basic needs of shelter, clothing, food, and comfort are met, anything above and beyond that does not add to quality of life or happiness.

If these people are ever expected to contribute to society and help their fellow man, they act as if someone is trying to steal their Halloween candy. They can become downright mean and nasty. Donald Trump and Howie Shultz are really exposing the ugly underbelly of hoarding money.

(I realize there are philanthropists who help with their wealth, so not talking about them).

Murkowski and Cortez-Mastro reintroduce "Savanna's Act"

It was Heitcamp's bill and got unanimous support in the Senate. Goodlatte single-handedly killed it in the House. They are no longer in office.

The bill aims to strengthen protections for Native American women, who face above-average rates of murder, violence and kidnapping.

Thank you ladies, for working together to revive and move this important piece of legislation!

CNN reporting that Kushner and Pence met with McConnell a couple of hours ago.

Man, would I have loved to be a fly on the wall.

I just called The Turtle's office to demand he allow a vote on the CR just passed in the House.

An automated voice said they're experiencing a high volume of calls, and that my call is very important to them. Then another automated voice tells me the mailbox is not taking messages, goodbye.

What a coward.

Lindsay Graham opens questioning of AG pick Barr by attacking FBI.

He attacked counterintelligence investigation, and then reads the texts of the two agents accused by Trump.

He is wanting Barr to commit to stopping law enforcement officials/FBI from starting 'bogus'
investigations of elected officials.

Why are tv pundits assuming counterintelligence investigation of Trump has ended?

MTP yesterday, and CNN this morning are making the assumption that it has.

We know that Mueller took over the evidence already collected, and as far as we know, evidence is still being collected.

Reminder: FBI investigation of Trump was OK'd by DOJ.

This is a fact.

Who was AG then, and where is he now?

I'm watching Julian Castro on CNN. He's impressive!

He announced his candidacy in English and Spanish in front of a festive crowd from San Antonio's West Side. He talked about his family history, immigration, and his accomplishments as mayor of San Antonio.

He's dynamic and his speaking style reminds me of Obama.

I really like him!

I am feeling relieved today.

Even though I know we have a Russian agent as president actively trying to destroy us and I know we cannot stop him right now, and there's no guarantee he will not succeed - I am breathing a little easier.

I keep thinking about President Obama. That man knew. He knew and he did what he could to ensure that traitors will be held accountable. All this time, he has not said a word, and every now and then sends messages of hope our way. He has been patient and believed that justice will be served.

Today, I believe it too. The end game is beginning.

Emergency!

What does that word mean, really?

It DOES NOT mean uncertainty.

It DOES NOT mean it can wait.

It DOES NOT mean it can be used in a lie to extort.

My kids know what that word means and what happens if they text it to me.

This is ridiculous.
