MAGA Teabagger tweets re "Barraco Barner" getting involved with Russia.

In 2014 a MAGA Teabagger tweeted that "If barraco barner is our president why is he getting involved with Russia, scary."

I'd say more but this burnt biscuit speaks well for itself. Am I the only one who missed this back in the day when brown suits were just cause for impeachment?

Trump administration wants 2 years to find the children it lost.

ďIf the government believed finding these children was a priority, they could do it quicker than two years,Ē
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/06/us/family-separation-trump-administration.html

In the meantime, the US government canít say whether any of the missing children have fallen victim to sex abuse or other violent crime; canít say whether any of them have been illegally adopted or sold into slavery; and canít say whether they are getting adequate food, clothing, shelter, health care, or an education. In short, they canít say for sure whether a particular child is alive and well or buried somewhere in an unmarked, shallow grave.

This, in 2019 America.

Currently serving Democrats who are proven fighters.

In no particular order, these are CURRENTLY SERVING Democrats who are the proven fighters I appreciate having in our corner:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Adam Schiff
Nancy Pelosi
Elizabeth Warren

I don't suggest that there aren't other Democrats with effective left hooks, but these are the people who consistently inspire me to press forward in these days of unabashed treason from every corner of the Republican Party. Obviously I support the wealth of Democrats who believe in our Democratic ideals, but the idealistic pacifists have had a chance and now I'm only putting my time and money on the fighters.

Trump gives encouraging words to new Chief of Staff Mulvaney

During negotiations with House leadership, Trump reportedly gave encouraging words to his new Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, stating "You just fucked it all up, Mick!"

Trump supporters left Drumphfounded. Again.

Republicans who voted for Ignatius J. Reilly (aka Donald Trump) are again dumbfoundead at the results.

Hate-filled racists are outraged to hear that Muslims can eat Toblerone chocolate bars.

This is NOT from the Onion.

"Members of Europe's far right have called for a mass boycott of Toblerone, after discovering that the popular triangular chocolate bar is halal-certified.

Halal is an Arabic word that denotes that a food or service is permissible according to Islamic law. It excludes foods containing pork or alcohol, and requires that animals are slaughtered by a Muslim by a cut to the throat, without being stunned.
Toblerone has not changed its recipe, but some online commentators have taken badly the news that its factory in Bern, Switzerland, achieved a halal certification in April -- with the federal spokesman of Germany's nationalist AfD party claiming it showed the "Islamization" of Europe."

Trump gives troops a thumb in the eye from afar.

I can only imagine how troops on the ground must feel after hearing such comments from their Commander and Chief. A recent Washington Post article reveals that:

"Although he signed off on Defense Secretary Jim Mattisís requests to bolster the American military presence in Afghanistan and Syria and retain the footprint in Iraq, Trump isnít a fan of U.S. military operations there.

In meetings about a potential visit, he has described the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan as ďa total shame,Ē according to the advisers."

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized With 3 Broken Ribs

Edited to reference this earlier post: https://democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=2196904

This scares the hell out of me.

Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-hospitalized-with-fractured-ribs/2018/11/08/65c48a04-e360-11e8-8f5f-a55347f48762_story.html?utm_term=.8c364c68fcfb

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized early Thursday morning after fracturing three ribs during a fall in her office Wednesday night, the court said.

Ginsburg, 85, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital early this morning for observation and treatment.

A statement from the court said that Ginsburg returned home Wednesday night but went to the hospital early Thursday after ďexperiencing discomfort overnight.Ē She called court police to take her there before dawn.

I'm not a praying man, but if ever I could send well wishes to someone she's getting them.

Ballot receipt! Gotta love it!

I love getting this little notice every election after my mail-in ballot has been counted:

Hello [Onebro],

Your ballot for the November 2018 General Election has been accepted and will be counted. Get your special Oregon "I Voted" virtual sticker bit.ly/multcoivoted If you have any questions call 503-988-3720.

Visit www.mcelections.org for more election information.



Actually, I get an email notice telling me my ballot has been mailed to me. Then, after I complete my ballot and return it to the election office, I get a second email notice telling me it has been received (but not yet verified); THEN I get a third and final notice (above) telling me my ballot has been accepted.

I love it!

Kavanaugh's lie is no longer a minor thing.

A 17 year old who is drinking beer illegally knows heís drinking beer illegally. He didnít mistaking my think he was 18 and thus able to drink legally. Then, BEFORE he turned 18 the legal drinking age was RAISED to 21.

Kavanaugh wasnít mistaken when he said he was legally drinking at 18 because he was NEVER able to drink legally during the period at issue.

If he is incapable of telling the truth now about an otherwise minor wrong as a minor, why would anyone expect him to be honest about a sexual assault?
