  1. Goooood Morning, USAaaaaay!!!!

    Sondland will not be testifying today, as the State Department ordered him not to, at the direction of DT's Admin.

  2. None of the messages I sent from my iPhone denied to post today, but it works from my computer.

    1. Presumably "autocorrect" thought "deigned" should be "denied."

    2. *deined ... correct.

      Apparently autoINcorrect wanted to reverse the meaning of my post.

    1. We need to limit the sounds! At our house we keep all the computer electronics in one room at night. We turn off all living room electronics at night (TV, DVR, cable box, Alexa, and slideshow photo frame) with one switch. (We also only turn on Alexa when we're using it for music, so it's not listening in to our conversations. We don't have it set up to run lamps or washer, etc.)

    Why Impeaching President Trump Is Popular [Click] “If Trump has any political strengths, it is that he is a low-information voter himself, and grasps how the political narrative plays out in snippets of cable-news chyrons drifting across screens in bars and airports. Trump has confided to allies that impeachment ‘looks bad on his résumé.’”

    “I must confess that I was dumb. I should have listened to those symptoms.”
    — Sen. Bernie Sanders, quoted by CBS News, saying he ignored symptoms in recent weeks that suggested he had heart problems.

    Sanders Will ‘Change the Nature’ of His Campaign

    October 8, 2019 By Taegan Goddard

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, a week after suffering a heart attack, said that he planned to slow down his pace on the campaign trail and acknowledged that voters would likely consider his health when deciding whether to vote for him, the New York Times reports.

    Said Sanders: “We were doing, you know, in some cases five or six meetings a day, three or four rallies and town meetings and meeting with groups of people. I don’t think I’m going to do that.”

    He added: “I think we’re going to change the nature of the campaign a bit. Make sure that I have the strength to do what I have to do.”
