TGIF….Don’t lose hope!


While the tactless,inept spin the Republicans came out with yesterday isn’t really anything different than they’ve boorishly used for years against us Democrats the difference is twofold now. They are aiming at a singular person, James Comey,which is going to be part of their downfall and they are trying to take on society as a whole in a liberal bent. Comey is not what they should be worried about and it’s kind of a relief that they are spending so much capital on him. His testimony started the cracks in Trumps armor and got his difficulties with Trump out in the open.

Their worry should be with Mueller as he is going to be the final arbiter with whatever is unearthed by his inquiry into the Russian collusion and it’s tie-ins with Trump and his basket of deplorables. It won’t do them any good though no matter what they do at this point because even a blind person can see they are all as guilty as sin.

What we are hoping for is to see evidence of an ever widening net corralling as many as the Repukes as possible.

Couple of observations…
1. What evidence do they have that is classified that’s not seen the light of day?
2. Have the Congressional IC’s been told any of this yet?
3. Could the reason that they might not have been told be because it’s more extensive than imagined with more politicians involved and the FBI and IC can’t trust anyone at this time?
4. If the evidence is strong as we believe why aren’t the Repukes folding, which plays into #3 or are they just that stupid?
5. With the partisan leanings of the Repukes can any of them be trusted with evidence?
6. Has PBO been briefed on any of this? He is the calm smart one ya know? Just wondering…:)

Real wingdinger here..Trump’s 20% of deplorables will be believe this though I think the evidence will cancel this type of bullshit out. It’s them grasping at straws and it pisses me off…



Important…Call your Senators

As always I end with “our girl”, Hillary!


This is your Friday thread…Fire away!




64, Life long Democrat...Kossack ex-pat...fed up with the puritanical leftists wanting to destroy our Party.

    {{{Batch}}} – good roundup – I’ve never put any faith in a ‘sudden death’ defeat of these guys. It’s not a couple of ‘bad apples’ it’s an enemy army. We are at war. I keep hoping for a WWII similarity (shorter and we reached the turning point earlier) but to a very real extent we’re re-fighting the Civil War. There’s foreign intervention, it’s true – but we are seriously fighting ‘brother against brother’ here and a boat load of it is about white male supremism. In fact, we’re seeing what might have happened if Lincoln had lost the presidential race but Congress had passed more laws restricting the expansion of slavery. The fight is mostly in Congress, the resources are in the hands of “the enemy” – it makes the fight harder. The fine line between supporting our Constitution and supporting our current government is a tightrope we’re balancing on – which puts us at a disadvantage as their side is actively trying to destroy Constitutional protections and the Extreme Left is happy to help them under their “Revolution” fantasy. But we’re going to win anyway. It will be bad. people will die. but we’ll win in the end.

    Gotta get to work – back when/if I can. moar {{{HUGS}}}

      {{{{fitz}}}}…I still think that this Russian intervention will take down enough of the Revulsionists(in my dictionary) that is the leadership of the Repuke party to turn the tide. They can hide but they will be brought out in the light as taking Russian money and that money will ultimately be looked at as washed by the hands of the Repukes that took it…. moar{{{{Hugs}}}}

    Good morning, Meese! TGIF! Thanks for the post, Batch. So, I’m going on record here that being “sweet” or “naive” doesn’t save your ass from getting speeding tickets (not that I’ve ever tried, right🤥). Although I can certainly see where it’s the only plausible explanation from the repugs because they won’t say “He’s an unqualified POS and we’re hanging all our nasty legislation on him so it’s his fault (not our party’s).”

    78 for a high today. It’s time to get moving.

    Thanks Batch…great round up…I think bfitz is right…it’s a war and while I hope trump goes down and takes a lot of Repubs with him, I also think it is a bit of a distraction from what’s going on in Congress…called my Senators the last two days and will again urging them to vote against the healthcare bill…not that it will do much good…

    Super busy at work today, but I had to drop in for a moment…waves madly at Batch and other Meese

    I think I’m going to be on a news blackout this weekend; I’ve slept poorly the past few nights, and I know it’s related to worrying about the AHCA. It helps that I have a baby shower to attend; a new fiction book to read; and plans to go see the Wonder Woman movie. Somewhere in there I also need to work in my garden, do laundry, and get some sewing done. Whew…I may need a nap at work on Monday.

      In case you are interested, there’s a series called Detroit Presents that airs Tuesday nights at 7:30 ET. Season 6 airs June 27th and features ragtime music. 😁 I think there’s also a live stream.
