About Northam . . .

This a.m. I was reading the comments after a WaPo article, and there was a link to a Gateway Pundit article that could possibly show that it was another person in the yearbook picture. It shows a picture of Northam standing in a group of people which included a man wearing plaid pants that could possibly be the same pants in the yearbook picture.

I had my husband look at the picture and he says they aren't the same pants, but I think the difference could be due to the quality of the pics, the lighting, etc.

Since the KKK person was significantly shorter than the blackface guy, and IF the blackface guy wasn't Northam, then he wasn't in the pic at all.

Regardless, Northam needs to go for other examples of racism, but it is interesting that he may have been telling the truth when he said it wasn't him in the pic.

Has anyone else seen this yet--or any other article that shows the group shot? (I won't post a link to the Gateway Pundit because it is a rightwing source.)

W broke down

As a daughter and as a mother I feel real empathy for that.

Tucker Carlson is a racist a*hole, but this is just wrong


‘They were threatening me and my family’: Tucker Carlson’s home targeted by protesters
‘We know where you sleep at night’: Protesters surround Tucker Carlson’s home

Boycott advertisers, but physically threatening someone at his home, with his family present will not produce the results the protesters hope for.

Did I hear that right?

It sounds like he has ordered the military to fire on the immigrants!?!?

Just saw on Fox:

Flake will vote to confirm.

He's such a never-Trumper that I thought he would want to go out by poking The Orange One in the eye.

I wonder why President Carter isn't there?

I would think he would have been invited, along with the other living ex-Presidents. (I'm guessing GWHB's health prevented him from being there.)

So, no special election

to replace Senator McCain. I checked, and it looks like the deadline for filing was in May.

The R governor will be able to appoint a replacement, who is sure to be a yes vote on Kavanaugh.

Manafort question:

Does the jury know their verdict could possibly lead to a sentence of literally centuries in prison?

I'm wondering if that could have something to do with their failure to come to a quickie verdict.

No Choice: Why Harry Truman Dropped the Atomic Bomb on Japan


Critics of the decision to use the “special bomb” in 1945 are judging men born in the 19th century by the standards of the 21st.
No Choice: Why Harry Truman Dropped the Atomic Bomb on Japan

Nuclear arms are hideous, immoral weapons whose existence continues to threaten our civilization. To say, however, that Harry Truman should have sacrificed hundreds of thousands of American lives because of what happened in the nuclear arms race decades later is not only ahistorical, it is moral arrogance enabled from the safe distance provided by time and victory.

Interesting article. My son did an internship at Oak Ridge some years ago, so we toured the facility where the bombs were built. They were projecting some scary American casualty numbers, had an invasion been necessary.

Duck boat survivor, Tia Coleman
