Article goes on to say....

What Disney won't buy:

The Fox broadcast network, as it's not allowed to own two separate broadcast networks.
Fox's sports programming assets. This would be to avoid concerns that, in combination with ESPN, the assets would be anti-competitive from an antitrust point of view.
Fox's local broadcast affiliates, reports CNBC, citing people familiar with the negotiations.


Therefore, Murdoch the Australian won't let go of Faux News, his personal TV media arm of the U.S. Republican Party.

There are no gun issues when...

There are no gun issues when you live in gated communities with security patrols and guardhouses.

There are no gun issues when you live in a penthouse with guarded entry.

There are no gun issues when you're a politician with Secret Service or police protection.

There are no gun issues when you're wealthy enough to hire private body guards.

There are also no gun issues when you're dead.

Thank you, T_i_B for your input from the UK.

The real shame to me is that the corporate world does not care about people's heritage or culture. Instead, they focus entirely on profits.

The areas where mines were located would make excellent places for factories, with a hard-working labor supply. Instead, we see manufacturing and even high-technology firms located where it is most convenient and profitable for the company. Changing this mind-set would require a complete reversal of thinking in the corporate world - from profit oriented to worker orientation.

That would also require a substantial change of attitude in our current governments, so that locating in poor or more remote areas would be rewarded. Also, government would need to support new or improved infrastructure in those zones.

What the article does not say...

is what potential penalties could be levied against tRump if he violated the gag order?

Also, would that violation constitute an article of impeachment?

Can someone provide some insight on those questions?

Thanks, Coyote - you and Solly knocked the edge off a bad day!

I love the wit and humor of these folks!

Even the girl's T-shirts that say: "Chin Up, Fangs Out".

Typical self-righteous hypocritical Republican statement.

Bevin, like Paul Ryan's gang of thieves, is wanting to gut Kentucky of any remaining safety net for the poor and retirees - therefore a potential death sentence for thousands of folks in need. And yet, they make a huge deal out of morality-related issues that have been long settled in court.

Next, he'll be calling the Legislature the assembly of deacons.

Dotard's Missile Lesson 101

I'm sure Japan's military leaders told him why. tRump is throwing rotten red meat at his base.

Some arm-chair guesses:
1. Danger of debris falling on populated areas form two missiles.
2. Japan and US experts may want to observe full trajectory.
3. Better odds of recovering usable missile debris from the ocean for study of NK technology.
4. Avoiding risk of NK knee-jerk reaction and starting full-blown war.

Did the Nashville Banner go belly up?

When I was a kid there in the 50s/60s (Wilson Co.), the Banner and Tennessean had opposing political leanings (can't recall which one was on which side), but politics didn't get brutal until the late 60s (Gore/Brock) and the Nixon days. The state was predominantly Democrat before then.

One things for sure, that big dollar sign on the cover page will get lots of attention at the news stand!

Crazycatlady, thank you!

That was a great review. Although I've been a voting Democrat for over 50 years, my travels in my work before retirement kept me away from the fine workings of our Party. I have a lot of catching up to do and DU is one the places that helps!

Please post more like this anytime you feel inspired.
