    Interesting – Sen Feinstein didn’t get her Rat party’s endorsement on Saturday, the California Rat Party endorsed Kevin de Leon instead – he’s younger (there are Galapagos tortoises that aren’t as old as she is) and more lefterer.

    It’s going to be an interesting race, she’s up against a Hispanic state senator and where she has a lot of big-name Rats and buckets of money he has the party’s heart. Let’s see how this growing rift plays out.

      I’d like to see them end up like the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat:

      The gingham dog and the calico cat
      Side by side on the table sat;
      ‘T was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!)
      Nor one nor t’ other had slept a wink!
      The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate
      Appeared to know as sure as fate
      There was going to be a terrible spat.
      (I wasn’t there; I simply state
      What was told to me by the Chinese plate!)

      The gingham dog went “bow-wow-wow!”
      And the calico cat replied “mee-ow!”
      The air was littered, an hour or so,
      With bits of gingham and calico,
      While the old Dutch clock in the chimney place
      Up with its hands before its face,
      For it always dreaded a family row!
      (Now mind: I’m only telling you
      What the old Dutch clock declares is true!)

      The Chinese plate looked very blue,
      And wailed, “Oh, dear! what shall we do!”
      But the gingham dog and the calico cat
      Wallowed this way and tumbled that,
      Employing every tooth and claw
      In the awfullest way you ever saw –
      And, oh! how the gingham and calico flew!
      (Don’t fancy I exaggerate –
      I got my news from the Chinese plate!)

      Next morning, where the two had sat
      They found no trace of dog or cat;
      And some folks think unto this day
      That burglars stole that pair away!
      But the truth about the cat and pup
      Is this: they ate each other up!
      Now what do you really think of that!
      (The old Dutch clock it told me so,
      And that is how I came to know.)

    Another beautiful morning.

    “President Obama thought that Crooked Hillary was going to win the election, so when he was informed by the FBI about Russian Meddling, he said it couldn’t happen, was no big deal, & did NOTHING about it,” Trump tweeted. “When I won it became a big deal and the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by Strzok!”

    A short time later he tweeted: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”


    I would love to be a fly on the wall.

        Someone went on suggestiung the presidential security team in Finland was less than professional in not keeping the Greenpeace protestor complketely away from the president, they let him get too close.
        I posted back that the US had close-in security, the host nation had farther out responsibility and that security had been arranged by both countries (didn’t mention Russian coordination) weeks in advance. Also mentioned that Greenpeace had called the Finnish security and had given them a 10 minutes heads-up that the protest would occur.
        So back comes someone questioning the professionalism and competence of our and the Finnish security team’s response again. Guess there’s one in every crowd.

    Oy, this lady lets ’em have it…and justifiably so….

    Trump, Churchill’s Chair, and Barack Obama
    By Jeannie DeAngelis – July 16, 2018

    In the end, after unfair British indictments, street-level protests, and rude treatment by left-leaning royals, it was the guy who owned the chair whose words should be President Trump’s take away from this UK visit: “You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

    What’s wrong with Musk that he would even think such a thing, let alone tweet it out to the world…

      Considering? This only should have made the news AFTER his attorney had papers served on Musk.

      I am sick and tired of the mindset of so many people these days: “Everyone who I want to see destroyed is a pedophile.” Enough people aren’t getting driven into bankruptcy court for those kinds of statements.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    What Critics Missed About the Trump-Putin Summit

    To my mind, the chief point was enunciated by Winston Churchill in 1954: “Meeting jaw to jaw is better than war.”

    As President Trump repeatedly put it during his 2016 campaign, it would be a good thing, not a bad thing, to get along better with Russia. Let me stipulate that I think that Vladimir Putin is a murderous thug. He has demonstrated time and again that while you can take the lout out of the KGB, it’s much more difficult to take the KGB out of the lout.

    That said, Russia is a world power that commands an enormous nuclear arsenal. Which means we cannot—or at least we should not—simply take our marbles out of the game and go home in a snit because they do things of which we do not approve…

    My poor little doggie. She has another ear infection. It may be inner ear. She started showing some symptoms last Sat. This morning she couldn’t get down the stairs because her sense of balance is all messed up. When I took her out for a walk she stumbled around like she was horribly drunk and kept falling down. Also, she was holding her head cocked to the side all the time. So, I took her to the vet and she definitely has an ear infection. But, one thing I realized was that some of the weird things that happened when she had the ear infection in the other ear were because of the ear infection, not the medicine that she took. Poor thing, she gets very upset if she doesn’t know exactly where I am at all times and she stays within a few feet of me. 😦
