New Parts Unknown tonight CNN "Singapore".

Hopefully it won't get bumped like half of the shows on CNN lately. It looks yummy...I wish there was a Singaporean restaurant nearby since my mouth is watering after seeing the promo clip..

Keith explains the many scandals that Mueller is investigating.

Joy Reid has Mayor of San Juan on MSNBC

and she isn't going to be distracted by petty comments and trying to make it political. She said the goal is to get help and save lives. Period.

I wonder if they can get Fed Ex planes and helicopters and truck drivers

down there? They already have all of that as part of their business.

Ari Velshi (MSNBC) loves talking about tax plans and he is good!

He is going after the tax reform plan and knows the right questions to ask. After the Donald speaks in Indianapolis he will be able to translate what 45 said and explain how much richer the rich will get and the rest of us will get BS. I hope he goes slowly so I will be able to understand it...too complex for me.

Thank you all for helping to save the ACA!!!!!!

Maybe we won't have to wait until Oct 1st to see if Bitchy Mitchie is going to pull a surprise sneaky vote at 3 AM before Oct 1st. I know it is going to keep coming back like a bad meal but at least we can breath a sigh of relief for now.

This should empower us and prove that grassroots activism CAN work! Now we have to get the Dems in the majority.

Breath, rest, smile. YOU DID IT!!!!!

Pinkville and My Lai are on Vietnam series tonight.

This was terrible. I was wondering if this would get covered. I studied about it in college. Americans murdered 400+ hundred of civilians and lied about it

Vietnam series by Burns and Novick

brought this song to mind. I sing it often whenever I watch the Donald or GOP "winning".

Country Joe McDonald..."Fixin to Die Rag"
"Give Me an F..."

Thanks for helping defend the ACA!

Take a deep breath.
Let out a good sigh.
You did it. You did it! Your relentless, tenacious, bold organizing just defeated the latest version of TrumpCare.
After you threw down and stopped “skinny repeal” in July, Republicans strolled into the month of September thinking they were in the clear and that they could bribe other Senators, whip votes, and pass Graham-Cassidy without you noticing. They. Were. WRONG.
You showed up at their offices. Again. You made calls to your senators. Again. You defeated this bill that everyone thought was a foregone conclusion on Day 1 of the Trump Administration. AGAIN. This is your victory.
In just the last week:
2,233 Indivisible volunteers across the country dialed 320,552 times using our Calls to Kill TrumpCare tool to encourage constituents in Alaska, Arizona, Maine, and Colorado to call their Republican senators. That’s 61,680 minutes (or 42.8 days!) of call time!
You visited our TrumpCareTen.org resources, call scripts, and contact information to put pressure on your senators over 201,000 times.
You hosted 172 events across the nation at congressional district offices over the course of the week to continue pressuring your members of Congress and for yesterday’s National Day of Action to #KillTheBill.

Last Friday, signs of a possible victory began to appear as Senator John McCain of Arizona came out against Graham-Cassidy. He was joined by Senator Susan Collins of Maine yesterday afternoon. And just an hour ago, Senators Lindsay Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana (the latest TrumpCare bill co-sponsors) announced they do not have the votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act before the Senate’s September 30th reconciliation deadline.
This is a major victory for the more 6,000 Indivisible groups and tens of thousands of people in the Indivisible movement. You continue to show that, even with a unified conservative government, attempts to strip millions of people of their health care will be stopped by constituents exercising their power (contacting Members of Congress by making phone calls, writing letters, and showing up day after day to make your concerns heard).
This fight isn’t over. While we’re celebrating victory today, we know that Republicans won’t abandon their mission to dismantle our health care system. Here’s what we know right now:
The Trump Administration is deliberately sabotaging the Affordable Care Act by reducing the window for Open Enrollment, slashing the outreach budget, putting out anti-ACA propaganda, cutting assistance to local organizations who assist people in enrolling for health care, and deliberately turning off healthcare.gov during Open Enrollment.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell now has two choices. He can restart the bipartisan approach to a short-term stabilization bill that Senators Alexander and Murray began earlier this month. Or he can try to bring back zombie TrumpCare -- again -- by combining it with the Trump Tax Scam as part of the Fiscal Year 2018 budget process.
Happy we won? Invest in Indivisible to help us win more.
You know we try not to overwhelm you with fundraising emails. But with a historic victory for health care like today, we thought it was worth stating again how proud we are to be fueled by your small donations. We don’t take money from corporations or political figures, and we don’t rely on just one or two big donors.
We’ve had more 50,000 individual contributions since January. Our average donation over the last week was just $35.12. We rely on YOU, which makes us responsive to YOU. Asking for money can be awkward, but we’re downright proud to do it for Indivisible. Your investments make Indivisible what it is: a powerful grassroots force to be reckoned with nationwide. We’re committed to keeping it this way, and we’ll be able to do that as long as you invest in us.
And in this phenomenal moment of victory, when it’s so clear what the Indivisible movement has been able to accomplish, we’re proud to ask you to keep believing in this movement and our work. Will you become a recurring, sustaining donor — at just $10 a month for the next 12 months — today?
We won on health care today. We need to stand indivisible on protecting Dreamers, on tax cuts for the rich, on the budget, on Trump’s warmongering, and on every other issue this Administration and Congress throws our way. This is how we’ve won. This is how we will win.
Your sustained support helps us plan for the future, knowing we have funding coming to us over the course of the year. It’s really the most valuable kind of donation we can receive.
Join us in sustaining the Indivisible movement with a recurring $10 donation. Or, if a recurring donation isn’t right for you, throw in our average donation of $35.12 or whatever you can with a one-time donation.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you’ve done to build this movement. We don’t know when or if Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and the rest of the GOP will attempt to revive TrumpCare. We do know we’ll have more fights to fight. But for today, we celebrate. Today, we’re proud to stand indivisible with you and have you standing indivisible with us.
If you marched, protested, called, or -- yes -- donated to Indivisible, you own today’s victory. This belongs to all of us.
In solidarity and victory,
The Indivisible Team
