Re: Turning 2020: Republican to Democrat

If you're running GOP this cycle, you'll need to sound like Joni Ernst. (OMG.) Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said Monday that Trump’s tweets are racist because the four congresswomen under attack are “American citizens.” But she made clear that otherwise there is no daylight between her and the presiden...

Re: All the President's Lies

I infer from my "field research ( i.e., Twitter trolling :bag: ) that many of the president's followers are only now learning that natural-born citizenship is not required to serve in Congress. :brickwallsmall: OMG!

Re: Resolution of Inquiry Re Impeachment; Commission to Declare President Incapacitated Re 25th Amendment

I appreciate the thought. I really do. But without hearings to sway public opinion, the House vote will fail and that's a win for trump. I'm still unconvinced that an acquittal would be a "win" for Trump in the long run—and possibly not even in the short run—but the whole issue is moot as long as t...

Re: Gardening 2019

Not as much of a gardener as I used to be but I have about a dozen pineapple plants. One great thing about pineapples is they'll grow anywhere warm. Cut off the crown, scrape the fruit from the base and jam it down into the sand. It takes about three years to get the first pineapple and about 4-6 mo...

Hi WID! What PG said. We've been ruined by Wal-Mart. I finally gave up my hat biz. Why buy a homemade, original pirate hat for $75 when you can get a mass produced one on eBay for $10. The people who appreciated them were talented enough to make their own.

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Someone on Morning Joe referred to these tweets as "trading in a racist dog whistle for a racist bullhorn." My prediction: he can't control himself anymore, and it's going to get worse in the next 15 months. Perhaps some of the people who justified a vote for him in 2016 by saying to themselves, "H...

Me three, after RS, CD and Addie. Pizzagate was wild speculation. We know Epstein groomed, molested and raped underage teens. There are also lots of questions as to how Epstein actually made his money. Speculating Epstein found a way to tie these together isn't any more out of line than speculating ...

I find the delay depressing. My hopes were already pretty non-existent. i was listening to MSNBC in the car and it gave me the impression the delay is to give them more time interviewing Mueller. Right now, they only have two hours scheduled and half of that time will be given to republicans. So if...

If you're a John Lithgow fan (yes, please) he's got a book of trump-inspired poetry coming out this fall. He wrote this one about Acosta's Epstein deal last winter, but with recent events, he's giving us a preview,presented by The new Yorker. He's pretty good. https://twitter.com/NewYorker/status/11...

All I can offer is authorities found DVDs in Epstein's safe. Some were labeled "nudes" and some were labeled ________ and ________. It's possible some of those blanks refers to other adults.
