A new petition was started today to ask Trump to apologize for being a Birther and condemn the Birther movement.

President Trump should apologize for being a Birther and condemn the Birther movement

Quicken 2016 won't download from Fidelity

I have been a long time Quicken user. Quicken 2016 has been a huge disappointment for me. I have a number of Fidelity IRA accounts for me and my wife and I have constant issues getting Quicken to download online transaction data. I have tried several fixes including turning off online download and then turning it back on. I also validated the database. What's weird is that I track my daughter's Fidelity Roth IRA in the same database and it downloads every time.

The error code I get is OL220.

Will the Surprise, AZ Tea Party Petition Sheriff Penzone to Look into Trump's Possible Treason?

Will the Surprise, AZ Tea Party Petition Sheriff Penzone to Look into Trump’s Possible Treason?

In August of 2011 an Arizona citizen named Brian Reilly spearheaded an effort to have the Surprise, AZ Tea Party Patriots to sign a petition to request that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio open an investigation into the authenticity of President Obama’s long form birth certificate. Remember President Obama had already provided a perfectly valid birth certificate from Hawaii in 2008 and because that wasn’t good enough to satisfy the Birthers like Donald Trump the President had requested and published a certified copy of his long form certificate on April 27, 2011. Copies were also made available to the press corps and some i the room saw on of the original sealed and certified copies.
So will these “Patriots” act? Will the Lord once again intervene? Surely this is a more noble cause than a proving a black man’s birth certificate?

I don’t think Mr. Reilly is any longer a member of the Surprise Arizona Tea Party Patriots. He came to his senses and called Zullo’s investigation a witch hunt and a sham. However, since this seems to be a time for action maybe he could prepare another petition? Surely the present circumstances warrant the action of these great patriots!

Pastor Carl Gallups could pray for the Lord to intervene once again and this time not drop the ball like he did last time. On second thought maybe another pastor might have a better connections in that area. We will have a new Sheriff to lead the way. Zullo won’t be there to muck it up either.

I encourage these patriots to act. Time is running out for our great country.

It am sure this was written with tongue firmly in cheek of course.

Can we avoid having 15 "Official Debate threads" tonight?

One is enough in this case. And no this isn't it.

Federal judge refers Sheriff Joe Arpaio for criminal contempt

Source: Arizona Republic

A federal judge said Friday that he will refer Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to be charged with criminal contempt of court.

A federal judge said Friday that he will refer Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to be charged with criminal contempt of court.

The decision comes after U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow found that Arpaio intentionally violated various orders rooted in an 8-year-old racial-profiling case.

The ruling additionally refers Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan, Arpaio's former defense attorney Michele Iafrate, and Capt. Steve Bailey for criminal contempt prosecution as well.

"Criminal contempt serves to vindicate the Court's authority by punishing the intentional disregard for that authority," Snow wrote in his Friday order.

This is the equivalent of a criminal indictment. It will go to trial unless Arpaio cuts a deal. Two top deputies and his attorney also are included.

I got banned from the Bernie group and have been a memberof DU since 2001

I have been a contributing member here since January 2001 and today I got banned from the Bernie group. Needless to say I won't be giving a dime here for a while. After Hillary is the nominee I will see how things line out and decide if DU is worth my time. For the last six months it hasn't been.
