      I hear you, Idon. Most of what this “admin” has been doing is rage inducing AND harmful, and what astounds me day after day is that there seems to be no way to stop them. At least I haven’t heard of anything that is not months, if not years, along the way. The helplessness that I feel weighs heavily on the spirit. I wonder if there will be much left of the Us by the time a major election rolls around. To be honest, I sometimes feel like there’s no point to the media sharing the GOP & their leader’s unending stream of hatred and destruction, because the stories rarely ever/also highlight options that would make a difference in a particular case. How much of the sky has to fall on us all before a definite way out is pushed/offered/encouraged? I don’t get it.

    I am currently unable to send a tweet to Ms. Joy Ann Reid …. blame my confusion about the password which I have had to change many times during the past few weeks …….

    but if I could tweet to her, I would point out what should be obvious to many which is that : “Be on your guard Ms. Reid because you are clearly a target of some well-funded and organized campaign to get you off the air. For a while now, these specific people are digging deep into your career path to uncover whatever thing they can use against => even as they are doing or have similar or worse things in their own lives”


    I have been preparing myself to see all kinds of outrage from this determined group of Reid-haters and I am wondering if it is because she has been so vocal and succinct in her criticism of a corrupt, incompetent, racist, treasonous trump administration and its collusion with Russia.

    when I see these attacks being pushed by fox, right-wing operatives like greenwald and assange this gives me pause as I consider WHY … they are combing through all she ever did, said, wrote many many years ago ….. but I digress

    Blanket pardon to distract…
    Trump says he is considering a pardon for Martha Stewart, commutation for former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich

    President Trump, who just announced a pardon for a controversial conservative activist, told reporters that he is considering commuting the remainder of the sentence of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich (D), who was convicted in 2010 on charges related to the selling of President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat.

    Trump also said he was weighing the case of Martha Stewart, the author and television personality, who was convicted in 2004 of obstructing justice and lying to investigators about a well-timed stock sale.

I ses a time in the hear future when this country will need the help of those we have hurt by allowing the most greedy and despicable people to lead us and for allowing our worst selves to do so much damage to others and we will not get it or it will come at great cost.
