I don’t think we have highlighted this illustration yet. I was holding off while trying to find attribution. Unsuccessful so far…I’m sure one of you will correct that Thank you Mag!

I’m so tired of this administration.

    We have a country where 40% of voting age adults are just plain shitty people. Period. They will vote for an ignorant, sexually deviant criminal so they don’t have to pay their goddamn taxes. These are low-life vermin and our country is full of them. That makes me very sad.

    And Chris Hayes had Mark Sanford on – who refused to say that trump is a racist, nor admit to the horrors at the border and instead when down the route of “we have a problem with the deficit”.

    All republicans are the same – this guy (who should never have been in congress) – lost his seat because of trump and still will not call him out.

    SURPRISE! A special guest dropped in to the @ObamaFoundation today to share some words of wisdom with a few of our Obama Youth Jobs Corps interns. Their reactions are priceless #OYJC

    @debbie: I like visiting Chicago but I don’t want to live there again—especially not in winter! Until a couple more years of climate change, then it will be balmy.

    @TS (the original): I was just listening Hayes’s latest Why Is This Happening podcast, for which Rev. Barber was the guest. It was inspiring.

    I believe the artist is Tom Garrahan aka righthandedleftyartist. Someone cropped out his copyright. He recently reposted his 2018 picture on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bz68kvQgtko/

    And when confronted by Hayes with the plain fact that Republicans have exploded the deficit when they are in charge and howled about it when Dems are in charge, he smirked about “that’s politics” and lied about both sides.

    Asshole. Supposedly he’s considering primarying Trump. Rooting for injuries.

    On the last leg of my extended trip back to my Maine island home. I have a lot to carry–including three heavy cats–a long way up and down gullies through the woods to the house, and the weather report is for torrential rain and thunderstorms. HOWEVER, I’m staying with longtime friends who have Fux News on all the time, so I’ll be on the 7 a.m. ferry to escape because I. Cannot. Stand. It. Another. Moment. (Yes, I am in my bedroom on a different floor; why do you ask?)
