Stroll: But I’m not the only one

So when at times the mob is swayed
To carry praise or blame too far
We may choose something like a star
To stay our minds on and be staid.

– Choose Something Like A Star

Feeling a rant coming on. It's cooking. Later…

Kenneth Branagh talked to Stephen Colbert about the Dunkirk Spirit last night.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead

It helps if you know who your enemy is. Hint: it's not sick people, children, old people, poor people of every color or women.

Are you pondering what I'm pondering? Is the reason the Republicans on such a tear about the healthcare bill because they need Trump to sign it before they have to turn on him? It's not just the Russia thing. It's the whole incompetence, stupidity and recklessness of his administration that is scaring the crap out of everyone on Capitol Hill.

They got their Supreme Court nomination. (Stole it, to be precise). If they can knock out this healthcare thing, they can satisfy their donors to a degree, work on getting rid of Trump and call it a day. Let the dust settle until 2018. Hopefully, no one will remember how they voted.

I wouldn't count on that.

A philosopher at The Conversation breaks down competing liberties to argue why it is a bad idea for "religious liberty" to override LGBT rights. This one is deep but definitely worth the effort.
