About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Massacre In The Mountains...warning: graphically describes killing in Ethiopia..

https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/26/africa/ethiopia-tigray-dengelat-massacre-intl/index.html



Editor's Note: All of the witnesses to this massacre have been given pseudonyms at their request due to fears of retribution

__________________________________________________________________________________
Abraham began burying the bodies in the morning and didn't stop until nightfall.

The corpses, some dressed in white church robes drenched in blood, were scattered in arid fields, scrubby farmlands and a dry riverbed. Others had been shot on their doorsteps with their hands bound with belts. Among the dead were priests, old men, women, entire families and a group of more than 20 Sunday school children, some as young as 14, according to eyewitnesses, parents and their teacher.

Abraham recognized some of the children immediately. They were from his town in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region, Edaga Hamus, and had also fled fighting there two weeks earlier. As clashes raged, Abraham and his family, along with hundreds of other displaced people, escaped to Dengelat, a nearby village in a craggy valley ringed by steep, rust-colored cliffs. They sought shelter at Maryam Dengelat, a historic monastery complex famed for a centuries-old, rock-hewn church.

On November 30, they were joined by scores of religious pilgrims for the Orthodox festival of Tsion Maryam, an annual feast to mark the day Ethiopians believe the Ark of the Covenant was brought to the country from Jerusalem. The holy day was a welcome respite from weeks of violence, but it would not last.

A group of Eritrean soldiers opened fire on Maryam Dengelat church while hundreds of congregants were celebrating mass, eyewitnesses say. People tried to flee on foot, scrambling up cliff paths to neighboring villages. The troops followed, spraying the mountainside with bullets.

A CNN investigation drawing on interviews with 12 eyewitnesses, more than 20 relatives of the survivors and photographic evidence sheds light on what happened next.

The soldiers went door to door, dragging people from their homes. Mothers were forced to tie up their sons. A pregnant woman was shot, her husband killed. Some of the survivors hid under the bodies of the dead.




Why "Solitaire" should be taught in every grammar school in the U.S.A. & maybe high schools too.

...Yes...Solitaire...that card game that you can play on the computer, and then you play again and
again, sometimes until you finally win a game. And then we feel relieved that we won, until we play
again, and again...(We used to play it with real playing cards, but playing on the computer is much
easier...and easier...and easier ..so we can play ....again..and again..and again and again....

...WHAT IS THE POINT???................????.......?????....................

...If you play for a while, you know you will win some and lose many. As we learn different forms of
....SOLITAIRE...and play the games, we all learn one simple quality in life that many people lack, and that skill is extremely important in business, education, and just dealing with people each day.
Many people lack that skill or life quality, but we all need it in order to thrive & live a good life..

Have you figured it out yet?...Well you needed that skill to get this far.....Yes, you did !!!!

...........THE IDEA IS PATIENCE......you know, being able to wait awhile and awhile longer....

We are in a world that says you can have it ...NOW, NOW AND NOW.............AND ALWAYS NOW!!

So many people in the world lack..PATIENCE. Some lucky people have a life experience that demands
PATIENCE..AND MORE PATIENCE... And the outcome of that life experience is a totally wonderful
outcome if everything goes right...got that one yet??? Many reading these words have had this
experience..and everyone reading these words has been part of the experience..PATIENCE..!!!

...When a woman gets pregnant and the baby is growing inside, the wait is OK, and the outcome
is a wonderful baby. The family wants to wait the full 9 MONTHS.. because that is what we do. People
learn patience with this experience and then forget it in the hurry of living the NOW LIFE...BUT...
mothers and dads want their children to grow up healthy & wise so much of the growing process
involves patience.. Then, patience is lost because of the ..NOW LIFE!!!!

We all want the ...INSTANT NOW LIFE...in one way or another..We learn it. The computer needs
start NOW...The car needs to start NOW!!!. I don't want to wait in line, I want my burger NOW!!

Think it over..This quality of PATIENCE..is very important, and we all need to learn and accept it
to live each day. Why? So many experiences take time, lots of time..and so many people are
in a rush that they forget the ........IMPORTANCE OF PATIENCE....

My point is that teaching PATIENCE SHOULD BE A REQUIREMENT IN ALL GRAMMAR SCHOOLS..

PATIENCE IS A LIFE SKILL THAT EVERYONE .."NEEDS TO KNOW"... AS WELL AS TO LIVE
LIFE ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS
...One more point: We all know people who have NO PATIENCE,
and dealing with those people is often very difficult and sometimes almost impossible.

About Trump being nominated in 2024, He won't be, because Trump cannot win any election.

No one would be stupid enough to nominate him for anything. (take that back, Yes, there are a whole
lot of stupid people out there..a whole lot!!!

How Russian spies hacked the Justice, State, Treasury, Energy and Commerce Departments: CBS News

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/solarwinds-hack-russia-cyberattack-60-minutes-2021-02-14/
____________________________________________________________________________________
President Biden inherited a lot of intractable problems, but perhaps none is as disruptive as the cyber war between the United States and Russia simmering largely under the radar. Last March, with the coronavirus spreading uncontrollably across the United States, Russian cyber soldiers released their own contagion by sabotaging a tiny piece of computer code buried in a popular piece of software called "SolarWinds." The hidden virus spread to 18,000 government and private computer networks by way of one of those software updates we all take for granted. The attack was unprecedented in audacity and scope. Russian spies went rummaging through the digital files of the U.S. departments of Justice, State, Treasury, Energy, and Commerce and for nine months had unfettered access to top-level communications, court documents, even nuclear secrets. And by all accounts, it's still going on.

Brad Smith: I think from a software engineering perspective, it's probably fair to say that this is the largest and most sophisticated attack the world has ever seen.

Brad Smith is president of Microsoft. He learned about the hack after the presidential election this past November. By that time, the stealthy intruders had spread throughout the tech giants' computer network and stolen some of its proprietary source code used to build its software products. More alarming: how the hackers got inů piggy-backing on a piece of third party software used to connect, manage and monitor computer networks.

____________________________________________________________
The last 4 words in the last sentence in paragraph 1 above are very frightening:"It's still going on.

The second paragraph is also very frightening...................:
Brad Smith: I think from a software engineering perspective, it's probably fair to say that this is the largest and most sophisticated attack the world has ever seen.


Also think about these 2 sentences, beginning of paragraph 3:........Brad Smith is president of Microsoft. He learned about the hack after the presidential election this past November.....Well the president of
Microsoft didn't find out about this until November 2020, while the attack started in December of 2019..

Please, Please, and Please..Don't Use Abbreviations That All Do Not know..Please...

..Yes, the abbreviations are easier to use, but some of them are very difficult to interpret. I often
need to look up many of them, and finding the meaning is often very hard. Don't assume we
all know the meaning of the abbreviations, because many of us do not know the meaning.
...Consequently, the full meaning of a post is often lost. I respectfully request that we use full
words unless everyone knows the meaning. For example: we all know the meaning of the G.O.P.,
but there are so many we do not know the meaning of. Thank You for reading this...

Hundreds of Thousands of Deaths Due to Virus Will be Trump's Legacy & "The Capital Riot"

...Trump could have ordered protections that would have protected people & saved lives.
Instead, Trump said it was...a hoax. He did very little from the federal government's point of view. (almost nothing) For a while, he didn't wear a mask. He didn't care, and that action totally proves it.

...And One More .......will be his language before the .."riot at the capital"

DeSantis just ended his political career by lowering flags for Limbaugh

...DeSantis like Cruz is sure he can get away with it. This will follow him forever. You don't lower flags for a bigot and a hate monger. That becomes your legacy. If DeSantis did this as a favor to Trump, then DeSantis is a fool. I thought DeSantis was smarter than this, but he is not. He thinks he knows the
people in Florida, but a lot of them will use this as a reason to vote against him...That is not just one
time, but forever and forever. Further, this one move will be a talking point about DeSantis forever.
....Again, he is sure he can get away with it, but he can't

About Ted Cruz: Cruz will Not be up for election again till 2024 -from Wikipedia:

Scroll down to see section on ..2018 Election.. I was wondering about his next election.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Cruz

Cruz was elected last in 2018. Hit the link above to see the 2018 election results. Senators are elected for 6 years. I wish it were sooner, but Cruz knows the time frame. 2024 is a long time away.
