In other news, Crain's New York estimates that Trump's businesses lost at least $45 million and as much as $90 million in revenue in the last year. They attribute the decline to collapsing business at Trump's properties in blue states.

Meanwhile, the Trump regime official responsible denying abortions to the young immigrants in federal custody, Scott Lloyd, has been reassigned to an explicitly faith-based office where he won't have any decision making powers. A federal court eventually ordered Lloyd to stop blocking abortions.

Finally, a group of Senate Democrats have filed a lawsuit challenging the appointment of Matthew Whitaker as the acting attorney general.

Also -- the CDC just issued a warning that you should not eat romaine lettuce under any circumstances, so keep an eye on that.


Programming note... We'll be back in action here next Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday. I feel like I could sleep until then. Enjoy your turkey and have a good weekend.

    This is off topic, but I dunno where else to put it: Banded Masculine has a scent called “Toxic Masculinity,” that I just saw in Bob’s Twitter feed? Is that a photoshopped joke of some sort, or do they actually have such a scent? Because I gotta say, that is not only not funny, it’s disgusting.

    The CDC that is provided by the government that the Republican party would like to, oh how’s that quote go again?

    “Our goal is to shrink government to the size where we can drown it in a bathtub.”
    ~ Grover Norquist

    If it put one single extra dime in a donor’s pocket I swear they’d kill every last one of us. And on that cheery note, Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Rump’s exchange with Roberts..two things.. First, Rump telegraphs his own choices by saying judges are partisan to the president that appoints them. I say we recall every one he appointed or appoints. Second, he may be baiting Roberts to say something he can use against him should his own legal issues ever make it to the Supreme Court.

    Ashby, go ahead and sleep until you’re slept out. You deserve the break. Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone else.

    I honestly can’t remember if I’ve linked to this video before or not. If so, apologies, but Bach helps me make sense of a senseless world.

      Love, love, love the Brandenburg Concertos. They’re my go-to music when I need to do some coherent, creative thinking.

      This is side one of one of my all time favorite albums. Despite being a horn player, I find it amazing that such a technically limited instrument can be so expressive in such gifted hands. I urge you to find the whole album! I used to listen to this on the long road trips between home and college..enjoy!

      The section starting at 2:35 is taken in one breath..try inhaling quickly to grab a breath in between and slowly releasing through the phrase..! This doesn’t do the recording justice..try to find it somewhere. The instruments just sound magnificent.
