A Presidential comparison

Lyndon Johnson went to a flood ravaged area immediately after a major hurricane hit. He met with the victims in a pitch dark unlighted room where all were huddled. Taking a flashlight he illuminated his face and told them "My name is Lyndon Baines Johnson and I am the President of the United States. We will bring the full force of the national government to aid you", which he did.

Donald Trump paraded and preened in Puerto Rico long after a hurricane hit. He met with Puerto Ricans in the Calvary Chapel with full TV and Press coverage. He told the crowd that Puerto Rico had thrown his budget out of whack, that their catastrophe was NOTHING like Katrina and then proceeded to throw 3 point shots with paper towels to the crowd.

How long before Dumpy spits out the mail-order Hungarian Nazi "Doctor"?

Is it just me that cannot abide Steve Cornacki?

Need some tech help re Microsoft Office

I'm using an older version of Microsoft Office and have never had a problem before. However, while I was trying to do something else I obviously screwed it up. Now, the default blank sheet (when you start a new document) has content from a prior document I sent some time ago. I've done everything I can think of to 'erase' it, delete it, whatever but it's still there. The worst part is if I go to print anything the first page that prints is the screwed=up default page.

Any suggestions as to how to clear my default blank page will be most gratefully received!!!!!!

Let's cut to the chase - what these Republican bastards in the

Trump administration have decided on is simply a policy of not answering questions posed by any Congressional oversight committee that they don't want to. They have gotten together and figured out that "if you don't answer, what can they do you?". Sessions was the clearest purveyor of this cynicism today and, unfortunately, it seems that they have got it right. Democrats are neutered in all three branches of the government today and Trump's tactic of pushing way beyond any established lines or limits seems to be being enthusiastically adopted by the Rethugs. I don't know what the answer is - the courts might be able to eventually provide some redress but 1) with the Rethug monopoly on power the probability of it ever getting to the courts for some decision is remote and 2) there's nothing to indicate that the Trumpian response to a court's finding might not be "Let them try and enforce it. What can they do"? And I am afraid that there is no apparent good answer to that question.

So let me see if I've got this right -

They pilloried Hillary without mercy for not noticing a small c in parenthesis "c)" which supposedly indicated that a few e-mails were 'confidential' (the lowest security designation) but Trump devulgeing super-classified security information from a foreign source to Russians on the spur of the moment is a 'no, never mind'.

This isn't a case of "don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining"

No - it's a case of "We're going to piss in your face and you'll goddamned well like it. Get over it. We won." Courtesy of the most incredible collection of troglodytes and knuckle-dragging evolutionary throwbacks that has ever profaned the halls of what used to be called the United States Congress. Why, it's almost enough to make little Jimmy Comey slightly nauseaous.

No. I'm not pissed. I'm fucking batshit white-hot raging, burning like that of 1000 suns at all these little weasels and the mess of Deplorables that foisted them on us.

Maduro propped up by armed gangs

The ever-growing popular demonstrations against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro are now being attacked by armed gangs (colectivos) created by the government. They are increasingly using firearms to disperse the demonstrations with the resulting casualties and now, even fatalities.

Maduro knows he's swirling the bowl and will now resort to any means at his disposal to avoid the inevitable. Democracy, Bolivarian Revolution style.


If you ever doubted that Trump couldn't care less about what he does

Source: "Hardball", Chris Matthews, MSNBC today 3/29/17

If for whatever strange reason you thought that Trump may have possessed a millimeter of interest for his job, and the people he was elected to govern, prepare to be disabused once and for all. Discussing the Trumpcare fiasco Jeremy Peters, a reporter for the New York Times on MSNBC's "Hardball" this evening reported that Trump, watching Trumpcare go down the tubes was so desperate for some deal, ANY deal that he is quoted as having said: "I don't care what's in it. I want a ceremony".

The only thing that exceeds this idiot's lack of interest in any facet of his job is his undying need for adulation.
