Is that hurricane gonna swing back and come around again??????

Look where the Sunday track is, and then the Monday track down beneath it.....

Oh, those fun loving lil Saudis ..what will they come up with next?

Dear DU...I need help with a car key problem....

We just got a used 2001 Taurus, low miles, excellent condition, clear title, etc.

but...it comes with only 1 key and fob.

Until now, I have not had occasion to use a key fob. Our current cars are 1993 models.

The Ford dealership in town tells me it will cost 150.00 to have a additional key and fob made ..." cause we have to program it".

I know I can get a key cheap which will open doors, but not drive the car.

Am hoping someone can share their experience and knowledge to help me out.

Shout out and crossed fingers for Malaise and all DU folks in the path of Matthew.

I can attest that seeing a hurricane headed towards you will cause belly flops.
And the aftermath of trying to cope in the midst of post storm destruction is as bad as listening to the constant roar of the winds.

Hang in there, guys, and try to let us know you are safe when you can.

and here we have Trump on the Wheel of Fortune

Alabama judicial court suspends chief justice Roy Moore for rest of term over gay marriage defiance

Breaking, so no more details, but none needed.

Happily, he cannot judge anymore for the state.

Unhappily, he will be seen as a martyr by most here in teh state.

But the ALABAMA court did this, so it is HUGE. They did not sit on their hands and wait for the Feds. to enforce the law.

Teeny teeny cracks in the old dogma....thank you Mr. President.!

Phoenix demands Trump campaign pull ad with city police officers

Phoenix has sent Donald Trump's presidential campaign a cease-and-desist letter over a television advertisement that includes a snippet showing the Republican candidate talking with on-duty Phoenix police officers.

In the letter, City Attorney Brad Holm wrote that the Trump campaign violated federal and state law by using copyrighted material, including images of officers in uniform and at work, without permission.

The ad in question, titled "Movement," includes video of Trump greeting a half-dozen Phoenix police officers on an airport tarmac. It began airing more than a week ago. The footage appears to be from his June 18 visit to Phoenix, when he later spoke at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Holm said the officers "were unaware that they were photographed and videotaped, and they did not consent to the use of their on-duty images in any Trump (or other) campaign advertisement."

Police surveillance: The US city that beat Big Brother

"Police-community relations in Oakland are terrible," says Ali Winston, a reporter with the East Bay Express. "They have been terrible for a long time."
But Winston and his colleague Darwin BondGraham were still not fully prepared for what they would discover in the summer of 2012, when they were going through court records and council papers.
"We saw some things that raised questions. Why are they running fibre optic cables out there? That kind of thing," says BondGraham.
Winston recognised the name of a security company on a council agenda and knew immediately what they were dealing with - a Domain Awareness Centre.

( Note: these are also called Fusion Centers and they are quietly being built nationwide)

Read how the secret center was stopped, and how Oakland is teaching other cities how do stop secret spying of citizens:


I like this description of Trump....
