Lotta tidbits for the weekend. If you don’t care about stocks — or ancient cheese — skip to the end.
Otherwise . . .
If you’re a WheelTug devotee, John Grund thought you might find this clip interesting. “It highlights some of the safety risks of the conventional pushback procedure.” It does indeed. It […]
Mike Pence: The President must be impeached. I assume you’ve already heard this; but if not, listen.
So guess who’s having a Synod on Young People? That’s right! And you don’t have to be Catholic — or LGBT — to sign this pledge “never to give a child or young person the feeling that being […]
We’re losing the Second Cold War to Vladimir Putin — a man whom our sociopath leader deeply admires and under whose control he seems somehow to be.
As if that weren’t enough, we could lose our democracy if “checks and balances” are not restored — vigorously, I hope — November 6.

Everyone and everything he touches rots.
There’s never been any confusion about the character defects of Donald Trump. The question has always been just how far he […]

Fox News nails Trump budget chief: 3.4 million jobs have been added during Trump’s 19 months, but that’s fewer than the 3.7 million during Obama’s last 19 months. And as noted Friday: Inflation-adjusted wages rose a quarter of a percent per year under President Obama, but have DECLINED under Trump.
Billionaire Nick Hanauer argues: “Democrats Must […]
A simpler time, but a message worth spreading even now? (Thanks, Mel!)
To which my pal Dave responds:

Quote of the Day
