    I keep losing posts but I'll try again.

    Orphaned, this will make you completely crazy if you let it. I have to take breaks. My husband wallows in it. He probably watches 8 hours of MSNBC a day, reads the newspaper daily and subscribes to every liberal leaning magazine published. I only skim headlines so I have a general idea of what that bugger is up to and I've started wearing earphones and listening to music when I'm in the kitchen so I can't hear the TV. I'm starting to think that I'm suffering from some sort of Trump PTSD because I even wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. The final straw for me was when Jeff Sessions announced, quite proudly, that children would be separated from their immigrant parents. No civilized country, especiallly one purporting to be Christian, would carry out such a cruel, senseless and inhumane policy. It conjures up images of tattooed children being loaded into boxcars. No one can tell me that a tent prison in Arizona with daytime temps approaching 110 degress is any less a concentration camp than anything the Nazi's thought up. The latest Russian BS is beyond my conprehension. It takes my breath away.

    I do understand the societal and economic reasons why this happened. What I don't understand is why our Republican controlled congress is letting it continue. To pander to the Republican base that approves of it all simply to assure re-election is like Nero fiddling while Rome burns. We don't have one Nero playing a solo; we have a whole symphony orchestra providing the soundtrack of our collapsing integrity, our disintegrating reputation and our dishonorable behavior. I am wounded.

    re losing posts ...
    note1  I can't tell you why ... singz    note2     Belly laugh


    but this is what I do ... 
    type your answer in an email
    then copy and paste in here   Okay 


    sometimes ... things happen that must be commented on ..

    many of the issues you mentioned I have kept my peace about

    despite the fact that what is being done is unconscionable


    unlike you, I don't have as great a grasp of the dynamics behind all that is happening


    but this ... is beyond the pale

    he is not only tearing your county apart

    but is now a threat to undermining world peace or at least a further destabilzation

    and the world as we know it


    I watch news because of him ... and the danger he represents to all

    but only as long as I can stand it  

    I spend the rest of my time doing things that bring me peace and pleasure  ...

    emailing friends, TV shows I like and ...

    collecting my beautiful dragons   Dragon Attitude   Cute Dragon    Wub  Heart Heart Heart ( see scroll link in my sig below )


    endless hours in the cave hunting help sort my thoughts AND escape them as well


    Putin is a clear and present danger .. period

    To trust him is unwise and foolhardy .. like trusting a scorpion who will always revert to his true nature.


    His goals remain the same ... 

    restore the glory of the USSR  

    punish those who dare defy him 

    and world domination .....

    His English may be accented but his comprehension probably exceeds most native speakers ..


    And think of this ... Russian subs routinely prowl Arctic waters ...

    More land grabs ???


    He is dangerous and ruthless ...  Trump is outmatched in every way ..


    So when something happens ... I will speak out .. albeit guardedly  ( Canadian, eh ? )


    And now back to the Caves ... where calm and dragons await.

    The Scorpion and the Frog

    A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
    scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
    frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion
    says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

    The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
    the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
    paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
    but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

    Replies the scorpion: "It's my nature..."

    I know quite a few words .... mostly swearing   OH!  

    courtesy of the Russian speaking construction workers from the Ukraine that were next door ..

    they regard Putin as a snake ... a rat  ... and they speak with such fear filled disgust ..


    glasnost 

    a very good word


    ( In the Russian language the word glasnost has several general and specific meanings. It has been used in Russian to mean "openness and transparency" since at least the end of the eighteenth century. )




    THAT is what we need to see ...






    FAT CHANCE !!!!

    I can't copy the picture ... grrrr

    but here is some of the text 



    For the second month in a row, Time magazine has put a provocative photo illustration of President Donald Trump on its cover -- this time, morphing him into Russian President Vladimir Putin.


    In it, Trump's distinctive blonde hair, wispy eyebrows and pursed lips merge with Putin's nose and blue eyes.


    The stunning photo illustration, by visual artist Nancy Burson, "is meant to represent this particular moment in US foreign policy, following the pair's recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland," Time said in a statement.


    Trump has weathered heavy criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike for his performance at the meeting, where he publicly sided with Putin over US intelligence agencies' assessment that the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Since coming back home from Finland, the President has changed his messaging and now says he holds Putin personally responsible for the election meddling and believes the assessment of government intelligence agencies.
