  •  Good morning! Working from home today. (11+ / 0-)

    Which is a good thing because yesterday involved a lot of mimosas, dancing, and questionable behavior.

    I have to get up and cook brekky eventually, but we'll see. Let's see how long the stomach lasts before it starts getting cantankerous.

    The whistleblower issue is really getting out of hand. I've never seen the straight up zealousness of the Administration's pursuit of them before. It's really quite remarkable and frightening.

    Afghanistan...that third scenario. Wow.

      Great to see you.  I hope the price for the mimosas and questionable behavior (lol) is low and that your day turns out well :)

      Agree about the whistleblower witch hunts.  But as our govt. gets more and more secretive, it will become more and more critical for them to silence any whistleblowers and scare the hell out of anyone who considers it.

      I hope that the new Freedom of the Press Foundation helps with the kind of investigative journalism and helps whistleblowers find ways to blow the whistle without risking their lives and careers in the process.  

      If only we had a set of Congressfolk who would do a modern day Church Commission.  We need one very badly.  With the kinds of things going on today, we could use a dozen Church Commissions.  Maybe that is something that the progressive movement could turn into a goal instead of constantly focusing on elections.

    •  Wow! is all I can say too, and not in a good way. (5+ / 0-)

      Just too many assaults on this nation previously thought to be........

      the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

      And as a nation, we are mostly silent......
