Never thought I'd type these words but Maureen Dowd wrote a hell of a column for Sunday's NYT


https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/25/opinion/sunday/donald-this-i-will-tell-you.html?_r=0

An excerpt:


WASHINGTON — Dear Donald,

We’ve known each other a long time, so I think I can be blunt.

You know how you said at campaign rallies that you did not like being identified as a politician?

Don’t worry. No one will ever mistake you for a politician.

After this past week, they won’t even mistake you for a top-notch negotiator.

Interesting convo re: 45's direct connect server to Russian Bank

It's highly technical, way past my technese...but I post it to point out that there are many, very active conversations occurring all over the net, as citizen investigators essentialy crowd source and swap expertise while digging their way through the entire 45/Russian debacle.

There are no cracks in which 45's stories can hide. I find hope in that ~

This link starts one such conversation. It digs through the possible reasons for the server activity between the trump org and Russian Bank. Again, highly technical but an interesting read.

Would someone instruct on how to embed tweets from an iPad?

I've poked around for instructions -- they don't seem to match the iPad screen options.

My thanks, should a reply be forthcoming ~

Donald Trump looks to past Presidents for advice...a LOL



Wandering around the White House at night, Trump can't sleep, hasn't slept..he starts seeing the ghosts of Presidents past.

On that first sleepless night he sees the ghost of George Washington. "President Washington," he asks, "what can I do as President to help the American People?"

"Always tell the truth" answers Washington.

On the second night wandering the halls of the White House Trump sees the ghost of Thomas Jefferson. "President Jefferson," he asks, "what can I do as President to help the American People?"

"Follow the constitution" answers Jefferson.

On the third night Trump comes upon the ghost of FDR. "President Roosevelt," he asks, "what can I do as President to help the American People?"

"Help the poor and needy" replies Roosevelt.

On his fourth sleepless night Trump sees before him the great man himself, Abraham Lincoln. "President Lincoln," he asks, "what can I do as President to help the American People?"

"That's easy" replies Lincoln, "Go to the theater"

Don't know if this had been discussed: FL rally maybe a Bannon set up

To change the news cycle to rioting progressives.

Worth reading I believe...and if you're going to protest at Trump's FL rally, be cautious ~
