Sunday Afternoon Reads: Weather is Frightful?

Good Afternoon.

Here in Banjoville, the temps outside are cold enough for flakes and flurries of snow, and inside our house…the dust from drywall is creating its own flurries. I am writing this post on my new laptop, which is still not completely set up..while I sit in a room, which is still designated a disaster zone. At least there was some promising news this weekend, you know…that bit about charges in the Mueller Grand Jury, etc. (I want to be excited. Hell, I want to be ecstatic.) But after the last couple of years, I’ve learned to count my chickens…and right now? My chickens are being incubated in very delicate eggshells. Fragile enough for a orange fucker with a dictator complex to roll over and crush, by using his outrageous corruption strangleholds, a neutered checks and balances of the Congressional system, and an unbelievably gang of stupid ass supporters to destroy any chance of “justice” we may be able to reach.

So, with that being said, here are a few links for this afternoon:

 

Seriously?

 

 

Someone, kill me…if that happens.

Uh, we have been in a constitutional crisis since before day one of the tRump administration.

 

Let’s talk about the dead in Puerto Rico:

With all this Harvey Weinstein, remember Corey?

And our last link:

 

I know it is a short post, and the twitter links are lame, but at least things are moving along.

This is an open thread.

      Thanks for the tip JJ! That does sound good.

      Twitters are good – I don’t go on except to peek at others’ comments so I appreciate you guys following what’s being said. I guess I’m just anti-social at heart so no social media for me.

      tRump seems to me to be inciting violence in the “DO SOMETHING” tweet. Who else is he talking to but his 2nd amendment followers?

        All that tantrumming makes it more obvious he’s not fit to be President. I think it’s a sign he’s more worried, which means Mueller is homing in on him.

    Posting tweets is an easy way to highlight a story with links without having to put all that blasted cut and paste and html codes in. So I’m fine with it.

    And here’s one where you MUST read the comments.

    That article about Catherine Corless and written by Dan Barry was one of the best newspaper pieces that I’ve ever read. I’m trying not to cry because how will tears help all those poor, little children?
