Source: Huffington Post

NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian security forces have arrested more than 500 people since New Delhi imposed a communications blackout and security clampdown in divided Kashmir, where people remained holed up in their homes for a fourth day.

Pakistan, which claims the divided Himalayan region together with India, on Thursday suspended a key train service with India over change in Kashmir’s special status by New Delhi, as tensions between the rivals soared.

Shit's getting real in Kashmir.

House Dems Finally Ask For Millions Of Brett Kavanaugh's Hidden Documents

Source: Huffington Post

The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday requested the National Archives produce millions of documents from Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s time in President George W. Bush’s administration.

Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), chairman of a subcommittee with oversight of federal courts, made the request. Activist groups have long been demanding an investigation into Kavanaugh’s background, claiming the Senate Judiciary Committee failed to carry one out before approving his nomination last year.

About damn time!

What is your debate drinking game?

I've decided my husband has to drink every time someone says "kitchen table" (as in "kitchen table issues" ), but he has to come up with one for me. So far the candidates are

1. "Medicare for All" (or, alternatively, "single payer" )
2. "Middle Class"
3. "Impeach or Impeachment"

Anyone out there have ideas?

I'm so embarrassed by him right now I could cry.

I never really cared for Jon Voight as an actor.

Now, I guess I don't have to worry about watching anything he does. Idiot.

Trigger warning for language, but this is f**king funny


Finally, some good news about the NRA...



They're eating their own.

Warning--bad language. But seriously funny.

I thought about trying to create something like this, but I could never do as good a job of it as this guy did.



Please send hopeful thoughts to my friend from Sri Lanka.

I have not been able to reach him so far. He lives here in the states, but goes back to visit his family in Sri Lanka often. I don't know if any of his family or friends have been affected, but I'm getting more and more fearful, the longer I can't reach him.

He is not a close friend, but he is a friend. And he is a wonderful guy. Please direct your hopeful and healing thoughts toward my friend.

Thanks.

On edit: On re-reading this I realize it looks very "sanitary", as if made up. I assure you it is not. I don't want to mention my friend's name, but he works at a casino near my home. That's where I met him. I know many of the staff there, but a couple of them have become friends, and he is one of them. I still haven't heard anything, but I will let you know if I do.
