This morning I ordered my week’s groceries from Store to Door. Yesterday’s 91° high just missed setting a new all time record for the first time in a week, and today’s 95° forecast is one degree short of a new record. We’re still under an air quality warning, due to smoke from wildfires. But we actually have a forecast high of 74° on Sunday. I can’t wait! I’m heat exhausted, because it has interfered with my sleep on and off for about two weeks.

Today’s took me 3:53 (average 7:12). To do it, click here. How did you do?
LMAO!! Pirro is a Faux Noise Ammosexual, who has said her audience should be "primed to use" their guns. I’d love to see her confronted with that quote. Republicans are such hypocrites! RESIST!!
From The New Yorker: Vice-President Mike Pence is seriously considering running for President in 1820, various sources confirmed over the weekend.
According to several prominent Republican donors, Pence is already laying the groundwork for such a campaign, outlining what he believes are the most serious challenges facing 1820 America.
In a conference call with donors last week, Pence reportedly said that, as President, his No. 1 priority would be to repeal and replace the Bill of Rights.
He offered a sneak preview of a potential 1820 stump speech, in which he unleashed a brutal attack on the Bill of Rights’ author, James Madison, and called for the development of the telegraph key.
According to Harland Dorrinson, a donor who was on the conference call, “Mike believes he’s the right man to bring America into the nineteenth century, just like he did for Indiana.”
Dang Andy!! Considering his policies, was that year a completely understandable typo? Otherwise, it’s accurate straight news! RESIST!!
From Daily Kos:
Let’s hope that eight years of President Barack Obama was enough to not only recover the United State’s reputation internationally after George W. Bush, but to inoculate us for however long Donald Trump remains in office. Because after those horrifyingly hysterical transcripts of his calls with world leaders were released, damn.
WASHINGTON When Jorge Guajardo, one of Mexico’s most senior and seasoned foreign policy hands, got out of bed Thursday morning, a couple of interesting messages were waiting on his cell phone.
One was a link shared by a U.S. diplomat to the leaked transcript of a phone conversation between U.S. President Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. In the second, a former Mexican official offered the quick analysis.
"He’s the opposite of Teddy Roosevelt," that official quipped to Guajardo about Trump. "He speaks loudly and carries a small stick."
Seven months into the Trump administration, the world’s diplomatic community has gone from throwing its hands in the air to now leaning back in their chairs and laughing, albeit morosely, at Trump’s cringe-worthy display of diplomacy during the infancy of his presidency. […]
"Everyone I’ve spoken to around the world is laughing," Guajardo said.
There’s nothing new here. Russian hookers have laughed at Trump’s small stick for years. RESIST!!
