    Hello, I don't have anything of note to say right now. The whole political climate right now is just so toxic, I don't know what the answer is - something has to give soon or we are all headed down a dark path.

    Side question - any Thom Hartmann listeners here ? I have not streamed any of his stuff lately. I used to listen to him on the radio every time I was in Illinois over the last few plus years. He is not carried on any stations close to me. I do like most of his content.

    Anywho, have a great week and do your best to stay informed without getting wound up like I do sometimes.

    Looks like the tax bill passed the house.

    Corker and Collins are my two least favorite people through all of this. They say they know better...... We can't do much to retiring Corker - but I sure hope Maine makes life miserable for Collins.

    Nice to see a millionaire tell it like it is. If only all politicians would show us their tax returns so we can see how much they benefit from this.

    I am so ashamed of our country - how could we have done this?

    From NYTimes:
    According to six officials who attended or were briefed about the meeting, Mr. Trump then began reading aloud from the document, which his domestic policy adviser, Stephen Miller, had given him just before the meeting. The document listed how many immigrants had received visas to enter the United States in 2017.

    Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They “all have AIDS,” he grumbled, according to one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person who was there.

    Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never “go back to their huts” in Africa, recalled the two officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss a sensitive conversation in the Oval Office.

    Hot(?) take: W is still a worse president than Trump up to this point

    Lots of time left on the clock though

    It depends on what you mean. If you mean that GWB made more consequential mistakes in 8 years than Trump has in 1, okay. If you mean he was actually worse at the job, no way.

    Oh, those poor Nigerians having to live in these huts. I'm starting to think the guy may actually be a little racist. ;)
