The weather is gruesome here in Portland with 90° forecast and humidity over 50%. The eye is still progressing very nicely, except that wearing a metal shield at night is very uncomfortable, and it interferes with my sleep. Oh well, Monday is the last night for that. I’m really looking forward to getting the other side done. May you come to see the day that the term "Republican" is a distant memory.

Today’s took me 4:20 (average 5:18). To do it, click here. How did you do?
Barf Bag Alert!!
Authentic Christianity is not related to this garbage. This Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian is a typical example of dominion theocracy. Increasing one’s level of power then depends on increasing one’s level of hatred now. RESIST!!
From Daily Kos: Here’s a heartwarming story about a little billionaire engine that could. Politico is reporting that billionaire GOP donor Mike Fernandez is so unhappy with how the Republican Party is acting these days that he is finished giving money until they get their act together.
“All the Republicans who hide behind the flag and hide behind the church, they don’t have the f—— balls to do what it takes,” Fernandez told POLITICO Florida in a telephone interview on Thursday.
Fernandez, a Miami-area resident, has long been a political rainmaker and donor, spending $3.5 million in ads against Trump in 2016 alone. He has, however, grown disenchanted with the direction of political leaders at both the state and federal level. He left the GOP due to Trump.
I can’t blame him for being angry. But, Mr. Fernandez, how do you really feel?
He called Trump an “abortion of a human being,” and hammered the New York developer in the harshest terms possible.
“If I was the doctor and knew what that baby would do, I’d have made sure it never would have seen the light of day,” he said of the president.
Kudos to Fernandez. All people of conscience, who are traditional Republicans, owe it to themselves and to America to leave the party and rejoin the human race. RESIST!!
From NY Times: Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned Friday after telling President Trump he vehemently disagreed with his appointment of Anthony Scaramucci, a New York financier, as his new communications director.
After offering Mr. Scaramucci the job on Friday morning, Mr. Trump asked Mr. Spicer to stay on as press secretary, reporting to Mr. Scaramucci. But Mr. Spicer rejected the offer, expressing his belief that Mr. Scaramucci’s hiring would add to the confusion and uncertainty already engulfing the White House, according to two people with direct knowledge of the exchange.
Mr. Spicer’s top deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, will serve as press secretary instead.
Good riddance to Shitty Spice, but Upchuckabee Sanders is no improvement. As for Scaramucci, he’s just Bankster beefcake barf! Appointing him was an act of class warfare. RESIST!!
