tRump continues to carry on his “good deeds” today… Trump Says Transgender People Will Not Be Allowed in the Military via The New York Times although more than a distraction from the monstrosity of yesterday’s best, great, good
dead deed. (Wow, mighty slip of the fingers there, eh?)
Health care bill: Senate votes on full Obamacare repeal – CNNPolitics.com
The Senate’s marathon debate to dismantle Obamacare enters Day Two on Wednesday, as Republican senators continue painstaking deliberations to reach an ultimate agreement on health care reform.The first order of business Wednesday afternoon: senators will consider as an amendment an Obamacare repeal bill — without an immediate replacement — that Congress passed in 2015 and was vetoed by former President Barack Obama.
As we look at cartoons today, we can appreciate the drawings of medieval beasties:
Now for the cartoons. This one from Pat Bagley is gold…its gold!

Nate Beeler was always ragging on Obama…and he was fucking hateful to Hillary. I wonder how he feels now.

Hopefully you can see the Facebook embeds:
This is an open thread…
Oh the last 24 hours have been hell. And that is just dealing with shit going on at my house.
Hey sweetie! I think Trump’s emotional negative chaos is just exploding over the world.
I wish it would explode him off the face of the earth. lol
I feel so disjointed from you all…and I know everyone here has so much going on too. With illness and dental issues and so many other things. I hope you all know that I think about my family here…I may not comment but I do read what is going on and I light my candles every night, thankful that we have each other. Hopeful that everyone is feeling as good as they can be…and that they will be safe and well. xoxoxo
Hugs and good wishes and strength to you across the cyberwaves, JJ. We are stronger together. Getting up in the morning is an act of resistance! We’ll continue.
I’m a mess today. I got up to hear about Trump’s latest tweet storm and I’m so angry about this transgender issue that I could scream. And I’ve had a very annoying day personally–nothing like what you’re dealing with, JJ–but I just feel all discombobulated. I just wish Trump would disappear from the face of the earth and take his ridiculous family and all his gangster thug pals with him. I don’t know how much longer I can stand it.
Thank you JJ – I hope you are feeling good too!
I just feel very fortunate that I can take care of my dental issues (which honestly are somewhat self-inflicted*) – and be repaired before I don’t have insurance at all.
*If you don’t like to floss try the dental picks – they are great!
Me, too. Whatever can be done-mouth wise-we’ll be able to pay for it. We’re very fortunate that way and my thoughts and prayers are with all who have English or Irish (me) teeth* and don’t have the money to find relief.
*It’s like I was born without the ability to grow enamel.
I like JJ finished with the (always wildly irreverent) German one….
Pat Bagley is brilliant!
O, Canada! ….
I’m getting to really like my new Congresswoman:
ZOMG! And not because she (or her staff) just retweeted me!
YIP! (That’s what I tell my cats when I come home and we’re all giddy with excitement….)
You go Luna! You are a strong voice and that counts for a lot!
We tried to ignore the world yesterday as it was our 53rd Anniversary. We had a lovely dinner together and the next thing I knew it was this morning and blam – trumpy was still here😲
And he was still doing what he does best, screwing up every part of the world that he can.
Aren’t there more of us than him and his minions? Shouldn’t we be able to get some relief? MacConnell has to go! Good grief, when will it end?
November 2018 will be the beginning of the end.
Unless Orange Julius resigns before then – a distinct possibility.
Oh wow – and tRump’s hateful transgender ban falls on this day:
Truman desegregates the military.
