    But soft, what scent from yonder window falls?

    It is the East, and Trump is the stink.

    Boy, does he stink.

    Stay upwind, America.

    The nose you save may be your own.

    Pueblo teachers and paraprofessionals will strike on Monday. The labor board has declined to intervene. At stake: wages, working conditions.

    At the core of the decision to strike is the D60 board of education’s rejection, by a 3-2 vote, of a fact-finder’s recommendation that the teachers and parapros should receive cost-of-living adjustments — 2 and 2.5 percent, respectively.

    Best reaction to Giuliani's Fox interview yesterday:

    Michael Cohen: “I’m arguably the dumbest lawyer in America.”
    Rudy Giuliani: “Hold my beer.”

  4. Davie says:

    Gee, I wonder if Trump discussed with Cohen what he'll need to do to get a pardon over the phone?

    According to NBC, one of the phone calls intercepted was “between the White House and one of the phone lines associated with Michael Cohen.”

    Paul Ryan sez "The hell with it, I'm almost outta here anyway!"

    Speaker Paul D. Ryan reinstated Father Patrick J. Conroy as the chaplain of the House of Representatives on Thursday, after the chaplain sent him a letter rescinding his forced dismissal and declaring that he would fight to remain at his post.

    “I have accepted Father Conroy’s letter and decided that he will remain in his position as Chaplain of the House,” the speaker said in a statement. He added, “It is my job as speaker to do what is best for this body, and I know that this body is not well served by a protracted fight over such an important post.”

      Make no mistake…Ryan was under significant pressure from the right to name a fundamentalist Christian to the post. Catholics are just too liberal.

        Bunch of mackeral- snapping Commies.  

        Anyone who doesn't believe the earth was created 6,000 years ago as a home for the Republican Party is no better than a Lutheran!

    Trump better lay off the Propecia — the brain fog is getting worse:

    [Trump] offered another flagrant falsehood later on Thursday when he claimed that “the past Administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a North Korean Labor camp, but to no avail.” Two of the three hostages were detained after Trump took office.
