Packers players make a statement:

https://twitter.com/packers/status/1268539283591356416

Wisconsin is a brutally divided state when it comes to politics, but probably more than 90% are Packers fans.

I understand.

This is not the time for people to tough it out.

Evangelicals are a big part of the problem.

I was talking to an evangelical this morning and I brought up Trump. She told me that he's been a big part of rooting out corruption in this country. And she told me she believes every single word of the Bible is true.

I don't know how anyone could believe that Trump is rooting out corruption, unless their brain has gone missing.

Today a twenty-something told me that she doesn't plan to have children because of climate change.

She doesn't think we are going to be able to save the planet.

Wow, just wow.

Nancy Pelosi is an awesome role model for women.

She exudes confidence and strength.
She is well informed on every subject.
She doesn't take shit from anyone.
She knows how to lead.
She is both family oriented and career oriented.

I just love her and I am glad she is fighting for us.

The Bob Hope USO shows were always a mystery to me...

Apparently they brought comfort, laughter, and hope to thousands of men in uniform.

But so many of the jokes were demeaning to women that I could hardly stand to hear him.

Context is everything.

Trump should be footing the bill

instead of wasting millions of taxpayer dollars.

What political books are an absolute must-read for DUers?
