    • Trumpcare protesters greet senators at the airport
      Protesters are greeting departing Senators at Ronald Reagan Airport right now to let them know how awful their health care bill is. Up to 2 dozen now start chant: “say no to Trumpcare.” Failed to track down Grassley earlier. pic.twitter.com/2tZ0CkpSK0 – Elana Schor (@eschor) June 22, 2017 Ehhh, not so much.

    • You Can’t Stay in the EU or Single Market And Be For Labour’s Manifesto
      So, 30 Labour MPs have signed a letter calling for Corbyn to stay in the EU’s single market as a member. This is not possible IF Labour’s manifesto is meant seriously.

For every boy who dreamed of pointe shoes

Here’s a non-traditional version of the Nutcracker choreographed by Mark Morris called The Hard Nut.

I love the whipped topping headdress and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.

  1. It’s lovely to see them having fun breaking the convention. When I was in college I used dance classes to fulfill my physical education requirements. There was a young man who would have liked to dance en pointe like this.

    • They do pretty well out there. But I’ll bet those shoes don’t last more than one performance.

  2. Carrie Fisher died this morning. 😦


  3. This is also off-topic. My in box had another request to sign a “thank you” to Obama. I’ve received a few of these and each is promptly deleted.

    Over the weeks since the election, I’ve felt that once the DNC decided on Obama as the nominee in 2008, it led to Hillary’s defeat in the Electoral College in 2016. That feeling has been because of who Obama is and his actions as president.

    My husband sent a link to an op-ed from the WaPo that he came across today.


    Obama’s narcissism is about to be replaced by Trumpo’s.

    • We needed a Churchill against the increasingly fascist GOPeckerwoods.

      Wall Street and the Democratic Establishment gave us Barack Chamberlain Obama instead, because they thought Hillary would insist that Wall Street pay its share of the cleanup bill for the 2008 crash.

      Obama just never understood that some people are complete sociopathic @$$holes who can’t be reasoned with or compromised with–and if you think you made a deal with them, check your hands to be sure you still have all your fingers. 😡
