Just wanted to say hi

Just joined thanks to Mary. I live in the Prescott area (hence the handle). I have volunteered for both the Sinema and Brill (he's running against the awful Gosar) campaigns. Just happy to be in Arizona.

Watching the Obamas talk about Jackie Robinson

Last night in Ken Burns' bio of Jackie it resounded like a shot reinforcing something we already knew: how classy these two people are. They have many other qualities as well, obviously, but class is one that stood out the most from their comments.

Of course the polar opposite contrast to the pig in the White House was impossible to ignore.

Scientists link brain damage, religious fundamentalism

Interesting read that may have more genral implications.


Why are the Florida students so good at this? Excellent school programs in ...

... journalism, drama and speech is one reason. It shows the power of a comprehensive education, and especially why we need to keep strong programs in those areas.


dump uses Javanka for the same reason Tony Soprano used Christopher

Chris Mathews asked tonight why dump has Jared and Ivanka as part of his admin. and speculated that maybe it was because he felt comforted having them around.

Watching an episode of the Sopranos recently I think gives the main reason. Tony bypassed more veteran members of his crew to be his main cutout in favor of his nephew Christopher. Why? Because he was family and less likely, presumably, to flip. Our POtuS knows deep down he is a criminal.

It is truly the trump crime family.

Sam and Doug Zeif on Chris Hayes

I have two emotions when I watch this young man: tears for the pain that he suffered and expresses so well and hope in my heart for the clear-headed, articulate, authentic way he gets his points across and that his message does get through.

Chris gave a nice sendoff to them: to Sam he said he hopes his four-year-old son grows up to be just like him and to his father Doug he congratulated him on raising this young man.

WH correspondent just said trump affected by listening meeting

Abby Phillips just said that on CNN. Her reasoning? Because he "called the shooter a sicko."

The asshole calls everyone names. I'm sure he called his mother a sicko at some point. This desire to humanize this soulless fuck never ends with some of these people. Don't you get it by now? He has NO empathy for others. Sheesh!
sorry had to rant.

Thanks for the heart!

And here I was thinking I was going to be heartless.

Reaction to memo same as Stormy reaction to donnie naked

Is that all there is?

Oprah's best friend fuels 2020 run talk

Yesterday we were told on here by some that there was nothing to this topic and that Oprah has "repeatedly" denied it, as has her best friend, Gayle King. In several threads we were told that people were making too much of it, and at least one poster implied racism behind those who questioned her validity as a candidate.

Well King is fueling these rumors, and CNN has more reporting today that she is considering the idea.
