Kavenaugh hearing

Watched Kavanaugh hearing this a.m. Seemed that Senators debated and postured for 2 or 3 hours over how many angels could fit on head of a pin.. Almost makes one wish for a dictatorship

She's big, strong, and good
There's nothing she can not do

Aretha

Yesterday, a beautiful, inspiring memorial service and tribute for Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We heard from Presidents, celebrities, singers and other musicians.
   Her soul is now in heaven, where that incomparable voice cam from.
     And abroad. During changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, the band played "Respect"

Bad guy in White House
Laws hurt people and planet
Do we fight real hard?

        or
Do we just give up/

Misty revised

Look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud
I can't understand
I get misty just holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty the moment you're near
     ------     --------
Look at me
I'm as helpless as a chicken up a tree
And I feel like I'm hooked up to a saw
Glad it's not a paw
I get misty just grabbing your claw 

Trot my way 
And a thousand gobblers begin to  play 
Or it might be the sound of your good cluck
The music of cluck
I get misty when we're in the muck

I get misty

Trump-McCain

"Trump Doesn't Mention John McCain as He Signs Defense Bill Named for Him"


This deliberate, vindictive act is a new low for this poor administration.
