      Of course they could change gun laws — but they’re in the pocket of the NRA so naw.

    I am hoping for a Democratic win in VA.

    Oh … and Paul Ryan (and his repulsive-cans) … should stuff his thoughts and prayers up his/their rear end(s). Someone should start a tweet-o-meter count of his ‘thoughts and prayers’.

    Now I understand why Republicans are pro-life … they need all the cannon fodder / human targets they can get.

    Good evening TOD! AMK, hope you had a great birthday:-)

    So another day in American, another mass shooting. Given this is described as a conservative town in TX, my compassion is limited. We’ve got our good old AG saying on teevee that we need even MORE guns! Well fuck it. I have about had it. You voted to put and keep these assholes in office, don’t be too surprised when their policies hit you close to home. You want guns everywhere? Well here in TX you have guns everywhere. I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve taken my grandkids OUT of a public park because there was someone there proudly strutting around with a gun strapped to his hip. I refuse to have my grandkids playing near guns so we’re gone. But good God, why oh why would it be acceptable anywhere to allow guns on a playground? But that is what we live with here so good luck. Yup, when you have guns everywhere people get killed. Thoughts and prayers…….to all those who love having guns carried and displayed everywhere. I for one am sick to death of it, and sick to death of having to structure MY life around their guns. What about MY freedom to be free of guns? THAT isn’t covered by the 2nd amendment.

      SO’s sister died year ago October in AZ, while at her visitation in walks young man with gun on his hip, we looked at each other, inched towards the back of the room to the exit and left. Why, oh why would you wear a gun to a visitation?

      Thanks for your righteous rant! Obviously, Texas’ Attorney General is plainly pandering to the gun nuts because I am sure he has read the Second Amendment, which is all about ensuring “the security of a free state,” Surely, the proliferation and easy accessibility to civilians of military style assault weapons, which are used by deranged people in mass shootings that kill and maim innocent people, is not the way to ensure “the security of a free state….”

    I hope Rand Paul has health care coverage. I would hate to think the stress it would add at a time like this, if he didn’t. Thank god Republicans are strong advocates for affordable health-care! (Snark).

      Every disgusting photo I see of Trump, he has his mouth wide open like he’s constantly yelling. When I see muted videos of him on twitter, he gesticulates like no one I’ve ever seen before. He’s such a grossly disgusting drama queen, I cannot bear the sight of him. UGH UGH UGH

      This is really interesting article for those who want to see this whole bunch behind bars, as I do. Given what they have done to this country, removal is not sufficient. I want them to spend years in prison.

    Ross ‘forgot’ to include $ 2 Billion on his disclosure form.
    Was the business with Putin’s family NOT part of the $2 Billion that he ‘forgot’?

      Oh my goodness, the photo of PBO and the Dalai Lama placing a Tibetan scarf around his shoulders……….so profound, it brings tears to my eyes.

      • November 6, 2017 at 10:15 am

        Interesting story about another time the Dalai Lama was there for PBO:

        Obama Had The Dalai Lama’s Scarf In His Pocket During His Swearing In

        From Wiki:
        The khata symbolizes purity and compassion and are worn or presented with incense at many ceremonial occasions, including births, weddings, funerals, graduations and the arrival or departure of guests. It is usually made of silk. Tibetan khatas are usually white, symbolising the pure heart of the giver,[2][3] though it is quite common to find yellow-gold khata as well. Tibetan, Nepali, and Bhutanese khatas feature the ashtamangala. There are also special multi-colored khatas. Mongolian khatas are usually blue, symbolizing the blue sky. Mongolia, khatas are also often tied to ovoos, stupas, or special trees and rocks.

        I also have tears. This is so moving. My Sacred Journey group is currently reading the book “Joy”. I highly r it. It’s about a week long meeting of Bishop Tutu and the Dalai Lama. I am also listening to it, you hear the voices of the Bishop Tutu and Dalai Lama. This book is such a help in these horrid times.

    Air force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said records showed Kelley joined Logistics Readiness at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico in 2010.

    She said he was court-martialled in 2012 for “assault on his spouse and child” and spent a year in a military prison and was given a reduction in rank. In 2014, Kelley received a bad conduct discharge, she added.
    Officials have said they found the suspect dead in his car surrounded by multiple weapons. US federal law bans people who have been dishonourably discharged from buying a firearm.

    Donald Trump Jr. reportedly told Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during the 2016 campaign that his family would consider overturning an anti-corruption law opposed by Russia “if we come to power.” And she said that he also asked her to provide damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

    Bloomberg reported on Monday that Veselnitskaya made the remarks during a television interview in Moscow.

    The GOP tax bill would wipe out key deduction for nursing home residents

    The GOP tax bill proposes the repeal of the medical expense deduction.
    That deduction allows people who spend more than 10 percent of their income on out-of-pocket health costs to write them off.
    This tax deduction is used by 5 percent of tax filers, but for the old and the sick it can be significant.

    Trump frustrated by notion of independent justice
    Rachel Maddow shows how Donald Trump’s ignorance about the bounds of presidential propriety is interfering with the U.S. justice system and his desire to replace Jeff Sessions with a more sympathetic attorney general.
