By tossing Stone's request for a new judge, thereby attempting to separate his case from the RU hackers, Judge ABJ has shown that Mueller is leading to a CRUCIAL collusion connection bet Trump & Russia. It's coming, kids. #SaturdayThoughts politico.com/magazine/story…
2-"Now that the two investigations are one, what remains to be gleaned is how wide and deep the Trump campaign’s connections to the Russians and WikiLeaks were. Previous Mueller filings had noted Stone’s attempts to contact WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange through intermediaries,

1-Sen Warren told a story today about ending up where she stood this afternoon, on that podium announcing her candidacy.
When her first child was 2 she “had a notion” that she wanted to go to Law School, so she made a list of all the things that she had to do to make it happen

“We’ve also laughed at the ridiculousness of our great-great-grandparents being monkeys. The kids get a kick out of that.”

OMG I remember doing this. Of course this is defiantly ignorant of how evolution actually works.

More, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“Our children have explored the universe at JPL and the Griffith Observatory, and they see design and intelligence; God creating order from forces that otherwise lead to disorder.”

Then shit gets fully theocratic:

“These obligations are the basis for our laws and government and a political theory that says that man is not subservient to government, but that government is instituted by God, and that we ought to respect it as such.”

A page From diary of Mr.Gupta...
In Oct 2016, I boarded a flight from Bangalore to Mumbai, economy class. I put my hand bag in overhead bin and took my aisle seat. There was an old person sitting next to me.
I had a presentation in Mumbai, so took my documents and started going through them for the final time before the presentation. After 15–20 minutes I was done with my documents & put them away. I looked at he person sitting beside me only to realize that I have seen somewhere.
He was old, his face, the suit was not very expensive, and he was replying to some mails or going through some documents. I exactly don’t know. I noticed his shoes, they were average quality.
Something stuck me and I asked him:
“Are you Mr. Narayana Murthy?”

Hardly the day starts and before one realizes it’s 6 in the Evening.
Monday arrives and before I know it’s already Saturday.
Yet #AnotherWeek has passed.
The #Month is almost over.
The #Year2019 will also pass.
Thinking aloud..
Already 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed & we realize that we have lost our parents, friends.
We realize that it is too late to go back in time and enjoy
So; Let's try, however, to take full advantage of the time we are left with.
Let's not stop looking for activities we like!!
Let’s put color in our greyness ...
Let's smile at the little things in life that put balm on our pains..
And yet, we must continue to enjoy serenely the time that remains.

I went to a party Mom,

I remembered what you said.

You told me not to drink Mom,

So I drank soda🍸Mom
I really felt proud inside Mom,

The way you said I would.

I didn't drink and drive Mom,

Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing Mom,

I know you are always right.

Now the party is finally ending Mom,

As everyone is driving out of sight.
As I got into my car, Mom,

I knew I'd get home in one piece.

Because of the way you raised me,

So responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away Mom,

But as I pulled out into the road,

The other car 🚙didn't see me Mom,

And hit me like a load.

Let's not forget that child abuse & sexual harassment can happen to any gender. A lot of our male population's memory of their early sexual encounters are by house workers, family members or family friends. And it's usually at an early age.
#SaturdayThoughts #saturdaymotivation
The sad fact and reality is most people do not take it serious because it is the male child.
#SaturdayThoughts #saturdaymotivation #SaturdayMorning
Does that mean that the general perception is that the male genetic makeup is so wired into sex that even at a very young age, they would not mind but would rather enjoy being exploited, sexually used & abused? Think about!

1. Question for #Exvangelical Twitter. @seelolago's most recent newsletter highlights (with skepticism) an obscure story that some college kid has accused Veggie Tales of racism. I'm not saying it's not at all; "I Can Be Your Friend" can be read as the "colorblind" approach. But.
2. The poster making the accusation that somehow got onto the internet doesn't mention "I Can Be Your Friend" or colorblindness. Instead it states that the accented characters are villains and racially coded. And I'm having trouble thinking of an example where this fully holds up
3. Are there examples that fit? Here's what I recall. The phony French accents of the peas are a largely innocent Monty Python reference. Pa Grape, with his Brooklyn accent, may be coded Jewish, but he's sometimes a villain, and sometimes a good guy. Played the prophet Nathan.
