Um, Bri-Fi, I would say that you need to step up and do the right thing here…


…and I think this provides more of the proper context…


…and kudos to New York AG Eric Schneiderman for this (re, Net Neutrality – and yeah, Ajit Pai is nothing but a typical Trump regime liar)…



…and kudos also to Elizabeth Shackleford, speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour about what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is doing to the U.S. State Department…



…and John Iadarola tells us that Repug U.S. House Rep Blake Farenthold is leaving under the proverbial cloud (NSFW)…



…and here’s another installment of “This Day In Doomsy History” (more or less) from 12/16/08, in which “Santa” Bush rewarded his cronies pretty much like Generalissimo Trump is now: I’m including this for at least two reasons…first, as far as I’m concerned, this is how ANY Republican in high federal office is likely to act, and second, this should be a response to any attempts at image rehabilitation on behalf of Number 43 (actor doesn’t look a lot like him, but he does have the voice down pat I believe)…



…and here are a couple of seasonal selections – likely cutting back on the holiday tunes this year.

God, I can’t believe it’s actually been five years (here – and on a federal level, not a goddamn thing happened in response)…


…and as expected, the corporate criminals of the regime of Generalissimo Trump voted to kill Net Neutrality today (here and here); way too little too damn late for some of the “R” party clowns in the video noted by Cenk and Ana (and again, I thoroughly detest the wingnutosphere, but I’ll never say that they shouldn’t have a voice)…



…and in light of this highly interesting news, I thought it was appropriate to revisit this great “Rewrite” clip from Lawrence O’Donnell (more here on Ryan’s one-time hero)…



…and potty mouth Kyle K. tells us that the Gropenfuhrer has a new accuser, this time from Fix Noise (and I agree with Kyle about the Dems “weaponizing” accusations – going back and forth on whether or not Al Franken should have stepped down prior to completion of the Ethics Committee investigation; Chris Hayes, who I sincerely thought knew better, recently tried to draw an equivalency on “All In” between what Franken and #45 did; not condoning either, but to me, that’s what you should expect from The Comcast Network given that Franken was their chief antagonist – NSFW)…



…and given this awful anniversary, here are a couple of more muted seasonal selections.

(I’m going to try and get this thing fired up again after a bit of an unplanned shutdown.)

Congratulations to Dem U.S. Senator Doug Jones in Alabama; yeah, you could argue that it took a confluence of a lot of factors coming into play the right way, especially given the fact that Roy Moore somehow “ran the table” with white voters in spite of it all (which is pretty sickening as far as I’m concerned), but I agree with the assessment that Charles Barkley was pretty damn spot-on here…



…and oh yeah, we still have to fight that garbage Repug tax bill, as Bernie reminds us; keep calling 877-650-0039…


…and here are a couple of more seasonal selections.

(Posting may be sporadic for a little while – not sure at the moment…)

Today is the day in Alabama, people (I think Cenk takes it a little too easy on Monica Whatsername in this clip, but I guess we should be even-handed for real here)…



…and do you want to be reminded of what a real leader sounds like? Watch it and weep like I just about did…


…and this goes out to everyone celebrating the festival of lights…



…and since it’s this guy’s birthday today, I thought this was appropriate.

Keep calling 877-650-0039, folks; the only way the “one percent” will pay their fair share is if they’re MADE to pay for it, dragged kicking and screaming into the cold light of day as it were…


…and while we should do what we can to assist the folks out west victimized by the hellacious wildfires out west if we are able to, let’s not forget the following (also related to that wretched tax bill congressional Repugs are trying to pass over to our Tiny Handed Treasonous Orange Dictator)…


…and leave it Repug PA State House Rep Daryl Metcalfe to embarrass our beloved commonwealth once again, as noted here (more here – fourth bullet)…



…and in light of the Gropenfuhrer’s recent announcement on Jerusalem, I’ll bet you KNEW this was coming, right? (more here)…


…and I thought this was a pretty well done, NSFW analysis of the recent Franken/Roy Moore stuff by Hasan Piker (the one exception I can think of on the Repug side is the thoroughly bilious life form known as Trent Franks, who apparently realized that asking his staffers to serve as his baby mamas, or something, was going just a tad too far and has resigned, as noted here)…


…and playing off of the previous video a bit, Sam Bee reminds us of the shitty behavior women in public life have had to deal with from men in the media, among other professions (NSFW also)…


…and here is another seasonal selection…



…and since it’s December 8th, it’s time for this tune once more.

Yeah, it looks like Not Your Father’s Republican Party is willing to help elect someone accused of sexual misconduct with underage girls for the U.S. Senate – indeed, as long as Roy Moore has that “magic R” after his name, all is apparently forgiven (to do something about it, click here...and yeah, I don't think the difference between Moore, Our Tiny Handed Treasonous Dictator and his playmates and the "D" team could be more obvious based on this...more to come I'm sure)…



…and there’s still time to protest this garbage GOP tax bill – keep jamming up the phone lines…877-650-0039…


…and I realize that we have to keep going after Citizens United (which is DEFINITELY related to the tax scam) even though it’s pushing the proverbial Rock of Sisyphus (you can Google it – thanks once more, High Court of Hangin’ Judge JR!), but do so we must (and kudos to Oregon Dem Sen. Jeff Merkley for reminding us)…


…and Lawrence O’Donnell tells us about the “deep state” private spies weighed by the Gropenfuhrer (and no, this isn’t a headline from The Onion, though it would be I’m sure if we were talking about any other preznit…oh and speaking of nuttiness from Number 45, more to come on this I’m sure as well)…



...and I feel obligated to bring you another seasonal selection, so here it is...

Oh, and let it be known for the record that, in addition to voting for that utterly disgusting and craven, ruinous tax bill, “Bri Fi” voted to send it to conference too of course (here...call 877-650-0039 to do something about it, and if you live in PA-08 and want to let Bri-Fi know personally, call 202-225-4276)…



…and 1600 showing up to protest in Berks County, which went for Generalissimo Trump by 10 points, as Rachel Maddow notes? I call that a sign o’the times, all right…



…and yeah, this is some lame ass excuse to get rid of Sam Seder at MSNBC…



Update 12/6/17: Oh, and by the way, in light of the pic above, I think that lame ass MSNBC network ought to read this from one of their contributors (try spelling the name of our political party correctly for starters).

Update 12/7/17: They're still clowns, MSNBC I mean (here).

There’s still time to protest this disaster (more here)…

..and Jerry Greenfield of Ben and Jerry’s weighs in also (call 877-650-0039)…


…oh, and let’s not forget the sickeningly servile role our Repug U.S. Senator played in trying to obtain a tax writeoff for the family of Betsy DeVos – Will Bunch explains better than I can here…makes me recall this clip…



...and for some reason, I had a heck of a time finding this...



…and Kyle K. weighs in on the Roy Moore/Jimmy Kimmel dustup (NSFW)…

Apparently they are actually nearing a vote on this atrocity – keep fighting, for the reasons noted by Sen. Elizabeth Warren - (202-224-3121)…



via GIPHY

…and it looks like Bernie busted Marco Rubio on this also…


…and when I find myself actually sympathetic to Joe Scar, then I KNOW we’re officially through the looking glass, as they say…



…and I suppose there is a bit of déjà vu between now and the antics of ‘60s people like, say, Abbie Hoffman when you look at what that guttural miscreant James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are doing (different goals of course – probably more sophisticated now for the reasons Chris Hayes and his panel point out, including Joy Reid and Rick Hertzberg, with today’s culprits trying to wreck journalism itself…a pox on our corporate media for letting that happen, and us too as citizens a bit I guess)…



…and yeah, I would call this more than a bit of karma (more here)…


…and when it comes to holiday tunes, I guess this matches my mood at the moment with everything going on.

Now’s the time to jam the phone lines, people - (202) 224-3121 or click here (more here)...

Rachel Maddow tells us of all of the Russian connections to the White House of Generalissimo Trump (and apparently, Erik Prince, Betsy DeVos’s brother and former head of Blackwater, just met with somebody new to the list)…



…and it looks like Huckleberry Graham is “showing a little leg” on the issue of North Korea firing off missiles (and when has our Tiny Handed Treasonous Orange Dictator ever shown an impulse for a diplomatic solution about ANYTHING? And I agree with Sam – our corporate media is just itching for the “pageantry” of another war, kind of like this fraud did not too long ago)…



…and I think it’s long past time for our Treasonous Orange Maniac to be booted off Twitter once and for all (more here - my theory, for what it’s worth, is that this was an attempt at distraction in an effort to get that disgusting tax bill to pass)…



…and kudos to the Archbishop of Canterbury for this (and yes, that’s in the UK, for anyone who somehow doesn’t know that – NSFW...and in a similar vein, I give you this)…



...and it looks like our neighbor to the north is becoming pretty cannabis-friendly, though that won't happen overnight I know; definitely a bit of a slippery slope, but I agree with the reason why David Pakman is jealous of what they're doing (and by the way, I think David makes a great point about the US ending up behind the 8-ball related to pot and research kind of like the way we are as a nation with renewable energy, and kind of like the way we were under Dubya when it came to embryonic stem cell research…anybody besides me remember that one? That’s what happens when you put Repugs in charge, people)…...



…and with a nod to a wonderful Canadian export, if you will, I don’t think this seasonal tune has ever hit home as much as it does right now.

Rachel Maddow brings us the very latest on the Repugs’ utterly ruinous tax scam bill; some of the protests are admittedly amusing, but some are deadly serious, as well they should be (all of the Senate Repugs on the committee voting Yes are beneath contempt, but Mike Enzi may be the most execrable of all – why do I have a sickening feeling that this could be part of the end game of movement conservatism in this country, and that they’re trying to enshrine this disgusting garbage and make it incredibly hard to unwind? Maybe it’s because that’s exactly what’s going on...to do something about this, click here)…



…and yeah, I think this is pretty damn shameless too (more here)…



…and Seth Meyers chimes in also…



…and as if we needed more proof of the scam the “one percent” is trying to run on us, Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich reminds us again here…


…and I know I included a clip from Thom Hartmann yesterday featuring the sterling words of our 35th president, and in a similar vein as the prior video, I include this item featuring the words of our 32nd president (audio is a little goofed up again – sorry; yep, fighting the same battles today as we fought back then…FDR was hated like no other because he was considered a traitor to his class, and he consistently beat the Repugs except in 1937, when – you could argue – policies of the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department led to a recession that lasted about a year within the Depression)...



…and Farron Cousins points out the stupendously obvious fact that the Gropenfuhrer is really, REALLY bad at being preznit (needs to be pointed out, though - uh, yep)…



…and to me, this is what true leadership looks like, and it’s Canadian PM Justin Trudeau apologizing for his country’s abuses against LGBTQ2 individuals – of course, if Obama had done something like this, he would have been vilified forever by Fix Noise and the rest of the wingnutosphere…


…and here’s another seasonal tune (trying to find a reason to smile amidst this horror show...thanks once more, all of you who did ANYTHING to inflict us with our Tiny Handed Treasonous Orange Dictator).

John Iadarola and Cenk of The Young Turks tells us about that human waste named James O’Keefe and Project Veritas trying to malign the WaPo for reporting on Roy Moore; it looks like O’Keefe and his pals tried to make the paper look bad with some “sting” operation that pretty much ended in hilarity…



…and It looks like Number 44 understands the importance of preserving Net Neutrality from the Trumpsters all right (to do more about that, click here)…


…and Thom Hartmann tells us about the untrustworthiness of the Repugs (taxes, war, etc.), as well as JFK’s vision versus our current hideous reality (“completely a-historic” indeed...have to play with the volume a bit here)…



…and K.O. signs off – I wish he were staying around, but I definitely can’t blame him (surprised he forgot about the 25th Amendment as a way to get rid of Generalissimo Trump, which is unlikely I know – yes, Trump needs to go of course, but the Dems had better have a strategy in place if he’s gone for Wolf vs. Wagner and Casey vs. Barletta next year; harder to scapegoat somebody if they’re in prison)…



…and what do you say to a little holiday funk?...



…and it should be noted that yesterday marked what would have been the 75th birthday of James Marshall Hendrix.

I thought this was a good analysis by Lawrence O’Donnell, Eugene Robinson and Adam Serwer of The Atlantic over Serwer’s column called “The Nationalist’s Delusion,” about voters who supported our Tiny Handed Treasonous Orange Dictator (and still do, mostly, which beggars belief I know)…



…and Kyle K. tells us about the Gropenfuhrer and dropping bombs and related costs vs. what we should be spending to rebuild this country – NSFW of course...



…and Seth Meyers brings us some news headlines from last week, including the FCC/Net Neutrality stuff (and yeah, apparently another Congress-person is having some personal issues, you might say, as noted here)…



…and I know Thanksgiving was last week (as noted in the Meyers clip), but I don’t think it’s too late for a re-interpretation of the holiday (pointy-headed liberal that I am I guess)…


…and Cenk and Ana give us the latest on the “F*ck Trump” bumper sticker saga (Karen Fonseca ROCKS; LOVE the fact that the donations will help register elderly voters – and yeah, I would say Sheriff Troy Nehls overstepped his bounds a bit too)...



…and speaking of law enforcement (yeah, I’m sure you saw this one coming from a mile away, as they say, right?)...

Kudos to Philly Mayor Jim Kenney for this; I can only imagine what kind of a reprisal will be forthcoming from our Tiny Handed Treasonous Orange Dictator, but sometimes you just have to stand up and say enough…



…and as if to illustrate Kenney’s point, I give you this clip about the response of “Dear Leader” to the words of the father of one of the UCLA basketball players who were detained in China (and this to me is surprising in no way whatsoever)…


…and Rachel Maddow tells us more about what Generalissimo Trump has in common with Tricky Dick (with historian Michael Beschloss)…



…and Carlos Maza tells us how Sean Inanity has gone into full-on Alex Jones mode; just waiting for the Fix Noise personality to start selling “male enhancement” supplements, or something (important to see what kind of nutsiness is springing forth from the other side from time to time)…


…and yeah, the real takeaway from this clip (with Cenk telling us about some red-state Dem electoral vistories) is that we truly can win anywhere, people!...


…and here is a Dem trying to do just that, and that would be Doug Jones, running for the U.S. Senate from Alabama against the aforementioned Roy (Keep Him Away From the Gadsden Mall) Moore (to help, click here)…



…and I failed to note the passing earlier this week of Della Reese, who made her name as a jazz “torch” singer before going onto TV fame…



…and dear God, is it actually that time of year again?

...and here's more holiday fun...



...and I kind of liked this also (hat tip for this to Daily Kos)...



...and here's a Thanksgiving message for those wonderful folks at the TSA.




Update 1: And here is another late addition.



Update 2: Might as well add this too.



Update 3: Imagine all the people that can be fed for $35 grand (here, getting serious for a minute).

Update 4: And since I add to this list every year, I might as well include this too (hasta la vista, baby!).

Gosh, what festive holiday decorating ideas from Ivanka Trump (and if you think I’m being serious, then no giblets for you tomorrow)…

…and Cenk of TYT tells us about National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster calling the Gropenfuhrer names behind his back (and yeah, it looks like the trail of ooze here indeed emanates from Sheldon Adelson all right…“no three-dimensional chess” going on with Trump – “barely two-dimensional checkers”…nice!)…



…and Seth Meyers weighs in on the latest against Roy Moore, Charlie Rose, and others…



…and given today’s anniversary, I thought these were some eternal words from our 35th president…

Rachel Maddow tells us about something that Tricky Dick and Generalissimo Trump have in common, and that is abuse of our law enforcement and the Justice Department (typical for despots – I don’t know what the next segment was about)…



…and it looks like I have another video to add to the Netflix queue (and I think this is a timely related post)…


…and it’s time once more for another installment of “This Day In Doomsy History”; we’re only setting the wayback, as it were, to a year ago, 11/22/16 to be exact, in which white nationalist wingnut Richard Spencer waxed triumphant over the Gropenfuhrer’s ascendancy (timely given this story – kudos to that Maryland farmer, and I think it’s absolutely hilarious – typical, though – to blame John Oliver somehow (update is here), and this makes this subject topical also IMHO, to say nothing of this...if what happened to PR had happened on our mainland...)…

..and here is your reminder of just how awful Roy Moore truly is (to help Doug Jones, click herethis, though, definitely isn’t good news about the man from Minnesota - I seem to recall an SNL skit he did once with the late Tom Davis that now seems eerily prescient)…


…and I know there are so many damn battles going on right now, but this may be one of the biggest (more here)…



…and Kyle K. tells us about 32 Justice Democrats (NSFW – and yeah, Kaniela Ing in particular sounds like a pretty smart guy to me also)…



…and a month ago today marked an anniversary that I forgot to note – nine days of hearings by the House Un-American Activities Committee began on October 20, 1947, which led to the creation of the so-called “Hollywood Blacklist”; I was reminded of this when Turner Classic Movies showed “Hollywood On Trial,” narrated by John Huston (and leave it to The Sainted Ronnie R to act like the utter stooge he truly was…there are a few good movies in particular about this, and one is “The Front,” with Woody Allen and Zero Mostel)…

“Now it begins” (Steve Cohen needs to fix his shirt collar, though I admit that that’s a minor point)…


…and while what Bill Maher is talking about here may not be impeachable by itself, then, well, let’s just say that, at an absolute minimum, it shows damn poor judgment (NSFW I think)…


…and I thought this was some great dot-connecting by John Oliver, though (as I think I mentioned earlier), there really isn’t much that’s new about “whataboutism” (NSFW also)…



…and Farron Cousins of Ring of Fire tells us about an accidental re-tweet from the Pentagon about Generalissimo Trump resigning (along with Roy Moore and Al Franken).


And by the way, I don’t like what Franken did either (here), but here’s the thing; he got out front with an apology almost right away. And to me, that counts for something (along with this from Franken's accuser). Besides, let’s have the ethics investigation go forward – which Franken has encouraged – and if it turns out that he needs to resign (which would be awful since he’s spot-on for so many other issues, but there you are), then he can do it AFTER the investigation has completed.

And for anybody who sez “What a typical libtard! Double standard!,” then I’ll just say this; the person taking up space in An Oval Office is guilty of a hell of a lot worse than Franken has apologized for, and he plainly isn’t going to go anywhere unless he’s forced to. And I for one am fed up with this supposed unwritten Beltway courtier media “rule” that the Repugs can get away with whatever they want but, if a Dem is at least accused of the same or a comparable offense, then they MUST fall on their proverbial sword every time...



…and the interesting part of this report on the utterly lurid exploits of former Repug Sen. Bob Packwood (insert your own scatological reference here) is who led the calls for Packwood’s ouster, as Rachel Maddow tells us; would that “the sins of the flesh” had been Sen. Mr. Elaine Chao’s failing as opposed to his servile compliance to the whims of the “one percent”…



…and with that in mind, don’t think I’ve forgotten about yesterday’s atrocity – far from it (to do something about it, click here...more here)…


…and Ana, Michael Shure and Mark Thompson tell us about the Texas sheriff who went after the woman with the “F-Trump…” sign on her truck (and way to not back down, ma’am)…



…and I don’t know how many more tunes from 1967 I’m going to be able to get in, so I’d better not forget this one.

You just knew they were going to find a way to do it, didn’t you? And yeah, I think this says it.

And they had help from this guy, as noted here...


...which makes me recall this video...



You’re a thoroughly disgusting weasel, Bri-Fi!

You voted today to take money out of my pocket.

We need that deduction for state and local taxes when we file every year.

You and your utterly-beyond-a-joke of a political party is apparently SO DESPERATE for ANY LEGISLATIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT WHATSOEVER that you can use to completely suck up to your one percent base for re-election campaign funds that you have no issue whatsoever with throwing the Doomsy household under the metaphorical bus.

I can assure you that I will do all that is legally within my power to see that you do not serve another term in the U.S. House.

...and that supposedly "Christian" man Paul Ryan is as big of a fucking liar as the Gropenfuhrer is (Chris Hayes talks with Robert Reich)...



…and Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure, and Mark Thompson weigh in here…



…and yeah, I think this great cover is an appropriate selection.

Hey, did you hear the one about how the KGB is going to provide “security” for our U.S. Embassy in Moscow? I have to admit, though, that the “Eddie Bauer Rock Climber” solution was pretty innovative (I’m tempted to read Ronald Kessler’s book now after this report).

And yeah, I think “previously unthinkable submission” pretty much sums it up also…



…and this is some truly outstanding journalism by Shep Smith of Fix Noise (earning the predictable outcry here…for the longest time in this country, I thought there was nothing worse than hatred of Ted Kennedy, but I now know that there is truly NOTHING more rabid and insane – and I think that’s an accurate way to put it – than hatred of ANYTHING having to do with the Clintons)…


…and kudos to Jeremy Scahill for this – he doesn’t let the Dems off the proverbial hook either, nor should he as far as I’m concerned (I'll get to John Oliver's video later, by the way...and Scahill is right that "whataboutism" definitely isn't new)…


..and Stephanie Ruhle tells us all about the Repugs’ latest tax scam, and now with ANOTHER OBAMACARE REPEAL added (with Steve Schmidt, Ben White and Kate Kelly – to stand up and call your senator or congressperson on Capitol Hill to protest, call 855-999-1663)…



…and did you know that there are 95.3 million people out of the workforce under the Gropenfuhrer, though I admit that that’s a bit deceptive (more telling to me is what is happening to tourism); I thought this was a pretty good analysis from David Pakman…



…and given the opening segment and this 60-year-old item, I had this tune in mind, so here it is.

I suppose I’m a little behind on the news cycle concerning the completely awful Judge Roy Moore, but I still thought this was a well done, NSFW segment by Hasan Piker of TYT (and as we know, as far as the Repugs are concerned, “tax cuts are their Jesus” as actor Bradley Whitford once said..and isn't THIS interesting)…


…and I also thought this was interesting from Rachel Maddow, given that, apparently, what was once referred to as the “party of Lincoln” is still setting up an organization to support this craven lunatic (Moore I mean, as opposed to Generalissimo Trump)…



…and Chris Hayes speaks with reporter Julia Ioffe of The Atlantic about Uday Trump’s conniving with Wikileaks – the question at this point is no longer whether or not Junior lied and collaborated with a foreign power to influence last year’s election, but how long his prison sentence should be…



…and I also thought these were some cautionary words about the most recent election from Michael Moore and Bill Maher (and Tweety too…I think Maher was going to lead into a point about winning back college-age voters, which I would imagine is a good point even though I don’t have data on that)…


…and yeah, I wonder if, one day, that supposedly God-fearing man Paul Ryan, Mr.-Puppy-Dog-Eyes-With-The-Shiv, is going to tell one too many lies and turn into a pillar of salt…


…and I ask you, when was the last time you saw a music video with go carts (or mini-tractors)? And I like the tune too (a little spooked by the guy around the camp fire at the end, though).

…and it looks like the Filipinos hate #45 as much as we do (no idea if any of these images aired on our corporate media, but my guess is that they didn’t – must maintain the voice of kleptocracy at all times I know)…


…and count these as more voices in favor of medical pot…


…and if you want to change things for the better, I give you three words: run for something (I think I aired this before, and I may do it again)…


…and it also looks like the Gropenfuhrer nominated (and the Repugs in Congress confirmed on a party-line vote) Brett Talley, who, aside from being a typical Trumpster zealot, has apparently never even tried a case and has been rated as unqualified for the job…as I said earlier, welcome to Kardashian America (where all you need to be is an ass?? Sorry if that's too harsh)



…and like it or not, here comes another installment of “This Day In Doomsy History,” and this time it’s a musical selection from 11/13/07…yeah, we know about our Treasonous Tiny Handed Dictatorial Egomaniac’s “bromance” with our former ol’ buddy Vlad Putin, but let’s not forget the two other world leaders from an earlier time who fit that category too (smile).

…and I’m really glad to hear this report from Rachel Maddow about the Gropenfuhrer’s gutting of the State Department – this is a much bigger deal than our corporate media is acknowledging, which I’m sure isn’t surprising in any way (and of course, we know that Number 45 has no core convictions whatsoever except as pertains to his own pocketbook…and yeah “gutlessness” is the right word)…



…and wow, it only took the Trumpsters a year to realize that they were played (and 91 percent of voters for President Fergus Laing would do the same thing? That’s an awful lot of “libtard” hatred…but yeah, it’s still out there and probably will be for awhile - actually, the numbers presented by K.O. lead me to believe that last year’s entire damn election was nothing but a “black op” carried out to tragically infamous perfection)…



…and yeah, it looks like blue states would get screwed by the tax cut proposals of the Repugs and President Tiny Handed Treasonous Egomaniac…


...also, watch this clip and then ask why our children and grandchildren shouldn't damn us for all eternity for allowing travesties like this to take place - somewhat funny until you realize how utterly stupid and pathetic it is given the enormous consequences ("I view this report as the product of the previous administration"...typical Trumpster; when in doubt, blame Obama)...


…and Seth Meyers reminds us about Dem electoral wins earlier in the week (and kudos to Phil Murphy, but I also think he needs to work on his celebration routine a bit)…



…and let’s not forget about the most recent mass shooting – fortunately, Sam Bee didn’t (also praising Dem wins particularly in VA here…have to say , though, that I think “balls for Paul Ryan,” would REALLY be a miracle)…




…and I know I put up this song for Veterans Day last year, but I think an encore is called for, so here it is.

Nice work here by Hasan Piker of TYT shooting holes, if you will, into the arguments against common sense gun reforms by the pro-gun zealots (NSFW)…


…and in a related story, as they say, Massachusetts is the first state (i.e., commonwealth) to ban so-called “bump stocks,” as noted in the clip…


…and “what a difference a year makes” indeed…



...and Mike Lux tells us about the Koch Bros. tax plan (familiar territory I know, but it bears repeating - here)…



…and yeah, it’s true that women won big in last Tuesday’s elections – and the problem is?...


…and Lake Street Dive and Rachel Price bring just a little bit of “sass” to this number.

Wednesday Stuff

Yeah, I’d say last night was a good night – more than a little bit of corporate media spin in this report, though, as far as I’m concerned, particularly at the end where the reporter, in true “rip n’ read” fashion, communicates the Gropenfuhrer’s claim about “getting killed” on the tax bill without doing some actual – y’know – reporting and analysis – too boring to do dumb stuff like that I guess…



…and it looks like somebody else Generalissimo Trump is trying to distance himself from, Felix Sater by name, is a little cozier with Number 45 that we were led to believe…not that surprising I guess, but important to note…



…and we are now the only country holding out of the Paris climate accords (mildly NSFW from Jeff Waldorf…important to note, by the way, that the few coal jobs that are left are at least partially automated at this point)...



…and nice work here by Dem U.S. House Rep John Barry Larson in response to that fraud of a tax bill from the Repugs…


…and speaking of the "one percent," Stephen Colbert has a bit of fun here with the “Paradise Papers,” though I’m sure there’s plenty here that isn’t amusing in any way…I’m sure there will be much more on this…




…and overshadowed a bit in these parts yesterday by the tragic death of former Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay was the passing of a local area icon (for me, anyway), and that would be Rod Carson, former traffic reporter, weather guy, disk jockey, and pretty much everything else I would guess in radio – I wish I could tell you all of the times I listened to his “Rock n’ Roll Roots” show on WMMR on Saturday mornings, which just about always began with this theme (again, the memory is a little hazy here I’ll admit).
