It’s a muggy day here in the crappy old CatBox.  I assume that the Cat Scan showed nothing bad.  It was an unpleasant experience, because I had to guzzle over a liter of cat pee, and when it was over they lied to me.  They said there is no cat.  Who should I think did the Cat Scan a dawg?!!? Dawgs are for eating, not scanning!  I should be in the saddle today and tomorrow.  Thursday is moving Day. I’ll post a minimal Personal Update early in the Morning and, if my Friday morning cable installation is smooth, another on Friday PM.  I’ll be back on the weekend.

Love it Don! You pegged Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten perfectly! RESIST!!

From Think Progress: Imagine the utter contempt that Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) must hold for the American people.

“Again and again, Democrats have refused to join Republicans in guaranteeing coverage for pre-existing conditions,” Cornyn tweeted Monday morning. The tweet was in response to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stating it had been two years since Senate Democrats blocked President Donald Trump from repealing critical health care rules…

…In 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — a law that, among other things, ensured that insurance companies can no longer discriminate against people with preexisting conditions.

Every single Senate Democrat voted for these protections for people with preexisting conditions. Every single Senate Republican opposed these protections.

Cornhole Cornyn is doing what Republicans do best: lie. RESIST!!

The next couple days, here in the stinky old CatBox promise to be most uncomfortable, with highs in the 90°s.  The humidity is now 87%.  When WWWendy de-stinks the rancid TomCat later this afternoon.  I’ll be dripping sweat by the time I get back to the room from the shower room.  ARGH!!  On the plus side, one week to go.

Short Takes:

From YouTube (MSNBC Channel): Mueller Knocks Down Trump’s ‘No Obstruction’ Claim

 

I thought the second hearing was far better than the first. For those, who listened carefully, the substance we needed was there. However, the optics stunk. Unfortunately for optics is the limit to the attention span of far too many voters. RESIST!!

From NY Times: A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the Trump administration to continue accepting asylum claims from all eligible migrants arriving in the United States, temporarily thwarting the president’s latest attempt to stanch the flow of migrants crossing the southern border.

Judge Jon S. Tigar of the United States District Court in San Francisco issued a preliminary injunction against a new rule that would have effectively banned asylum claims in the United States for most Central American migrants, who have been arriving in record numbers this year. It would have also affected many migrants from Africa, Asia and other regions.

Kudos to Judge Tigar. We are a nation of refugees. RESIST!!

From Alternet: On Tuesday, July 23 — the day before former special counsel Robert Mueller publicly testified before Congress — President Donald Trump was the victim of an apparent practical joke that referenced Russia as well as his interest in golf.

At a student summit hosted by the right-wing group Turning Point USA, Trump spoke in front of a presidential seal — which, on the surface, appeared normal. But upon examination, it became apparent that the seal had been altered in two ways: the eagle had two heads (not unlike Russia’s national symbol), and the bird is holding golf clubs rather than its usual arrows.

Was it a prank, or was it the Fuhrer’s design? RESIST!!

It’s a muggy day here in the CatBox.  USPS did deliver the next day, so I’ll get my medicine Thursday when WWWendy comes, right before I run out.   She is going to Vegas this weekend, so she’ll be coming Thursday this week and next and Monday instead of  this Sunday.  She says she’s visiting a friend, but I thinks she has naughty intentions. Winking smile

If a Republican goose stepper were competent for service as a dawg catcher, he/she would have already left the Republican Reich. RESIST!!

My reply describing Pence  comes from YouTube.

RESIST!!

From NY Times: President Trump on Monday again denied assaulting a columnist for Elle magazine in the dressing room of a high-end clothing store more than 20 years ago, countering her explosive accusation by asserting that he would not have assaulted her because “she’s not my type.”

Bullshit! Putin’s Pervert prefers two types: women with Russian urethras and women with pussies close enough to grab. RESIST!!

I overslept, so I must have needed the sleep.  I still feel pretty tired as we worked very hard yesterday, so I’ll be brief.  C2NN is still in thrall to the Care2 Glitch Monster.  I’m using the “Ad to Any” plugin to upload articles to C2NN, but I don’t know if they’re getting through.  Memorial Hugs.

From YouTube (MSNBC Channel): Reach to impeach? The battle between Pelosi vs. Trump

 

As long as this fight continues, Pelosi’s win count will increase, and Trump’s will be zero. Nevertheless, Pelosi needs to recognize that Democrats can walk and chew gum at the same time. RESIST!!

From YouTube (Protest Music): Jefferson Airplane -White Rabbit-

 

Ah! The memories! RESIST!!

From Alternet: China is not “stealing” American jobs.

President Trump loves to blame China for the job losses that have devastated American workers under globalization. But the truth is that Trump is blaming the wrong party. Trump’s reckless trade war against China is misguided and amounts to a colossal charade that will not solve the actual problem.

Yes, it is true that numerous American manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas to China, thereby leaving American workers jobless and suffering. But China did not steal these jobs…

…So if China is not at fault, then who is to blame for the devastation caused to American workers?

The answer is plain to see, and it lies within our own shores. The fault belongs squarely with corporate America.

It was corporate America that made these decisions. Corporate America decided to close their American plants and open new plants in China. Corporate America decided to lay off multitudes of American workers and ruin entire American communities.

The best example of this travesty is Wal-fart, who have given countless US manufacturers a choice between relocating manufacturing overseas and bankruptcy. Boycott the job exporters!  RESIST!!
