A 1917 quote that could have come from Trump's mouth in 2016..............

I was doing some research on the forced deportations of Mexicans from 1929 to about 1935. I saw an aside that referred to the Brisbee deportations in 1917. These were mostly IWW members striking against a mining company in Brisbee, they were arrested, detained and then put on a train to New Mexico.

When the Attorney General of Arizona was asked by the US Attorney General what law(s) had been broken, this was his response:

"I have no statute that I had in mind. Perhaps everything that I did wasn't legal....It became a question of 'Are you American, or are you not?'" "I would repeat the operation any time I find my own people endangered by a mob composed of eighty percent aliens and enemies of my Government."

My 86 year old mom & I were watching.........

the NBC news this evening. Lester was reporting on trump's flip flopping on immigration...........My mom's comment...

"you fucking asshole get off my TV!" She was referring to trump not Lester Holt.

MSNBC, Hugh Hewitt pissed me off............

It's bad enough hearing the Trump campaign belittle voters, but to hear the same crap on MSNBC is ridiculous.

Joy Reid this morning was discussing the placement of Pro-Trump ads in Pennsylvania, specifically Pittsburgh. Joy's question was what voters was the Trump campaign targeting.

Hewitt's response was Pittsburgh Steeler fans, so they'll (Trump campaign) will have to speak slowly.

Well I'm a die-hard Steeler Fan, I have a Masters Degree, and the Trump campaign doesn't have to speak slowly for those of us in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County to understand what the hell's going on.


Last week I ordered 4 pairs of shoes........a penny in one of them..

from shoebuy.com. Received 2 today. One was a pair of Dr. Martens. Found a penny in the right shoe. Is this good luck? Or do I have to return the penny?

Trump's attacks on the media has its roots in Ukraine...........

A parliament member of the Party of Regions (the political party Manafort helped create) brought forth a law that lowered criteria for what created libel.


It was put forth but withdrawn. Read the article & decide for yourself.

from the article:

"It instaured severe sanctions against any act of defamation and attacks against dignity and honor. As for information published openly in the media , penalties were up to 1.500 times the Ukrainian minimum salary and up to 3 years in jail."

Here is the phone number for the US Secret Service....

202-406-5708. Call them and report the threat made by Trump. If they get enough calls maybe they'll do it. I'm making my call after dinner. Let's do it.

I have MSNBC on right now.............

Trump in Orlando. He stated that he is ahead in Florida, and Ohio. Is he?

How many of us DU'ers belong to a gold star family.....

Not just directly i.e. parent, but a sibling, cousin, aunt or uncle. What hole has this left in the family?

Me: Lost a great uncle in WWII, he landed on D-Day and was dead within 90 days. I have a neighbor who knew this uncle and he has stories about him. My mom remembers him and she has stories too. Like how he would come up to her home (he was her dad's younger brother) on Saturdays, a few other brothers would come up (there were 8 of them) drink beer, play the piano and sing. He was single, shy, tall over 6' and seemed to be a simple man.

Lost 2 great uncles in WWI, brothers of the above uncle. They died during mustard gas attacks. Mom wasn't born yet, so she really doesn't know much about them. But if they were like my other great uncles, I'm sure they were good guys.

In WWII, I had another 3 great uncles, and 3 uncles serve. They all survived, one though wounded twice.

Korean War, my dad and his brother served, neither physically wounded, but I know my dad had PTSD.

Vietnam War, one cousin served, he came back also suffering from PTSD.

During the Vietnam War, my aunt & uncle whose son was serving, took out their blue star flag (from WWII) my uncle had been in the Navy & put the flag in their window. His maternal grandmother did the same, her son during WWII had been a POW.

So Trump just didn't disrespect the parents of a serviceman KIA, but all of us who have a hole in our family because of our losses.

I cannot stand some people who live on my floor..........

: there are 12 units, two one bedroom, two three bedroom and eight two bedroom units. twenty people total. I know who is responsible for what I hate, it is a married couple who doesn't give a crap about anyone or thing but themselves.

Our building management company makes it very easy to recycle. There is room, where there is shelving to put newspapers and assorted trash, like cardboard boxes, there is a chute in this room to toss down your trash & there is a plastic bin to put all recyclables. From the shelves to the bin it is 5 feet, yet it never fails as I found about 5 minutes ago, empty milk (plastic) containers. How can someone not walk 5 feet to put it where it belongs?

Adjacent to this room is the laundry room, untold times I have found empty plastic laundry containers in the trash basket between the washer & dryer. When you leave this room you are about 5 feet from the recycle bin. How can you be so lazy and un thoughtful and not put it where it belongs?

It's a small thing but it adds up.
