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.

Watergate crew, they got them..but it took time..Mueller will get them, and it will also take time..

Those of us who lived through this and watched this, thought a couple of them might go down..But the investigation proved they had all committed crimes. Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon for all crimes...otherwise he probably would have been charged..(no one knows)..But it took time...I want it over with now, but that will not happen now..But Mueller will get them......!!!

New York Daily News Bought by Tronic for $1.00

Source: CBS News, 9:02 AM..ET

The New York Daily News, which bills itself as "New York's Hometown Newspaper," has been acquired by newspaper publisher Tronc.

The deal was struck for $1 and the assumption of pension and operational liabilities, according to The Chicago Tribune, which is owned by Tronc. In 1993, real estate magnate Mort Zuckerman bought it for $36 million. The newspaper's liabilities may exceed $30 million, The New York Times said.

Chicago-based Tronc (TRNC), which also publishes the Los Angeles Times, announced the deal Monday night, and the Daily News posted a story on its website. It was first reported by The New York Times.

The Daily News, which won a Pulitzer this year, has been buffeted by the changing media environment. Like other newspapers, its circulation has plummeted amid the shift to digital news. Tronc said the company was committed to maintaining the quality of the newspaper's journalism.

Mueller will get Trump, I said this before, and I will say it again.

I will add this,... that getting him will take some time....But,...Mueller will get Trump

And that will be clear to all..It will ironclad. No doubt at all..

Why?...Mueller is an ex head of the FBI, and has some experience in investigating people. A friend of his, and also an ex head of the FBI, was embarrassed and fired by Trump. Further, Mueller has hired some of the best and most experienced investigators in the country to get Trump..each experienced in special areas of investigation................including the mob...

Furthermore, Trump has made some mistakes in the last couple of years. His arrogance goes with what we see.. Mueller will find those mistakes and indict Jared and maybe Trump himself...

I will say it again. Mueller will get Trump. ..When Trump fires Mueller for indicting Jared, then Watergate will be repeated. Trump will resign......again..it may not be in ways we expect. or when we expect..but Mueller will get Trump

About making stupid mistakes, on live TV.... and an apology..2 hours later.

http://theweek.com/speedreads/719882/new-york-times-bret-stephens-compares-secretary-state-rex-tillerson-pol-pot

On Morning Joe this morning.....Bret Stephens NYT columnist said..... on live TV the following:

STEPHENS: "Precisely because the State Department is also part of the machinery of government. And that machinery has to run in order for normal things to happen. Like having relationships with foreign countries, or having consular services for U.S. people, or for doing all sorts of things the State Department has to do.

And Tillerson seems to be of a kind of Maoist school in which it's like -- maybe it's Pol Pot, uh, well --"
_______________________________________________________________________________________
2 hours later........an apology from Stephens:

"I let rhetorical exuberance get the better of me. RT in no way PP, not remotely or by analogy. I apologize., (BLS)
________________________________________________________________________________________

Meaning ???... This fellow said something very stupid and insensitive about the Sec of State Tillerson. Why ? I guess Tillerson has not filled a number of jobs that need to be filled.. Basically, Stephens compared Tillerson to Pol Pot..the Cambodian dictator that killed millions..This was not smart, and wrong. .....
Yes, this did happen. Wrong things are said on live TV. People get carried away with rhetoric and themselves.
________________ ___________________________________________________________________

So..2 hours later, today, he apologizes to everyone..." I let rhetorical exuberance get the better of me. RT in no way PP, not remotely or by analogy. I apologize " . said by Stephens....link to apology story: TPM:

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/bret-stephens-apologizes-for-comparing-rex-tillerson-pol-pot

NOTE:.....While stupid comments on live TV are very common in today's world.. Apologies, just 2 hours later are not so common. While it might not seem like this is important, I think it is. Adults make apologies for mistakes as soon as possible. It is honest and correct thing to do, and here is an example of someone doing it.....This happened today..8/22/17, this morning......
...In today's world, many run and hide, and never apologize for any kind of mistake. That is what a very young child might do who doesn't know what to do and has never been taught. That is what a dog or cat might do.. At least in one instance, the correct action was taken. That action was to apologize as soon as possible..And that is what happened today. It is a moment in time that might be overlooked. That is the reason I posted this..

"One side in Charlettesville was bad and one side was violent", Trump says

http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/15/politics/trump-charlottesville-delay/index.html

CNN) — President Donald Trump, in a staggering, impromptu news conference in New York on Tuesday, blamed the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend on both sides of the conflict -- equating the white supremacists on one side with the "alt-left" on the other side -- after his top White House aides spent days trying to clean up after Trump's initial vague response to the violence.

The news conference laid bare his unvarnished view of who was to blame for the violence and what he thinks about the nationwide effort to remove statues of Confederate leaders. Trump's comments were the latest in what has been a jaw-dropping saga ever since the President made his first vague statement on the violence, blaming the conflicts on "many sides." The comments also made clear that Trump's speech on Monday -- which vociferously blamed the violence on the "alt-right" and neo-Nazi groups who initiated the protest -- was largely a sterilized version of his view

"What about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right,' do they have any semblance of guilt?" Trump asked. "What about the fact they came charging with clubs in hands, swinging clubs, do they have any problem? I think they do."

He added: "You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now."

Saying "both sides caused this" .a second time.......will sink him

He has speeded up the process. He is so wrong, and bringing this up again was the stupidest thing he could have done. He couldn't leave it alone. Only time will tell. He could be gone a lot sooner than we thought. By adding fire to this on Tuesday, this one idea will stay alive the rest of the week. And this will always be "him"
As we think back, this is it..

About 325,000,000....people in the USA. #3 in the world...that is why so many crazies.

People wonder why so many crazies..??? lots of people in the USA...that is why..

Now, you don't hear so much about how many kind people in the USA..do you?..(although there is a current story on DU about a 92 year old man building homes.. who is also very kind)...

We have lots of different kinds of people here. They vary in age, height, intelligence, wealth, education, background and every single kind of characteristic that you can think of. I am thinking, (I do not know) that we have the most diverse population of any country. We have incredibly smart people and incredibly dumb people. Our people vary..Why? People come from many other countries to live here..Land of Opportunity someone said.. Our country varies. We also probably have (I do not know) the most diverse geography for people to live in, in the entire world..

So, we have lots of different kinds of people here. And there are lots of crazies. But there are lots more non-crazies . A whole lot more non- crazies than crazies.. Oh, and the crazies are crazy in lots of different ways. Just as the good people are good in lots of different ways. Just think of the ways people can be good and bad, kind and evil, and we probably got examples of those people right here in the good old USA. But...why so many???? We got a third of a billion people, (give or take a few million) that is why...

An incredible advance in education and learning about past events...hit this link below, but..

BUT PLEASE READ THIS POST FIRST...thank you....

The story is about a Life Magazine article..from May 20, 1946. But the second post..number 2, explains an incredible advance in Education, research, and ability to get information about past events. An advance that you are experiencing right now and take for granted. That did not exist in 1946, or 56 or even 86..No. the internet was not that extensive even in 96 although it was growing and was accessible to many. Right now, this internet is available because we have it in our homes, with a computer too. It is now available to all at libraries across the country in every state and every city or town. People walk around with hand held computers and don't pay attention to traffic.....................
.... 17 years ago, in the year 2000, there were just 4 computers available at my local library. Now, the whole place has them everywhere. You even check out your books and other materials using a computer. This advance in education and research is remarkable..Yet, we take it for granted every moment of every day..About 4 feet from this chair, I have a table with a typewriter sitting..totally neglected and never used. How people get information and communicate has made a remarkable change in just 20 years....Hit the link and look at an old Life Magazine...pretty easy ...I would say so..........Something else that is also unbelievable...the computer highlights words that are spelled wrong,,,and in some cases even corrects the spelling...

I worked Precinct Politics. went door to door..a long time ago..

For Humphrey and McGovern. I have talked to many who have done this within the last few years. Guess what? It is still the way that elections are won and lost...It is very hard work, but if enough is done, and the candidate is worthy, it often makes the difference.

High school softball player strikes out everyone in perfect game

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2017/05/27/high-school-softball-player-strikes-out-everyone-in-perfect-game/

________________________________________________________________________________________
New Jersey’s Cedar Grove High School softball player Mia Faieta didn’t use the words “monumental” or “history-making” or even “unbelievable” to describe the true perfect game she pitched Friday against North Warren. Instead, she simply said she had a good time.

“This was fun,” the sophomore told News 12’s Sean Reilly after the game that left the reporter’s scorebook looking like a rare work of art.

“I knew as the game kept going on a that I had more and more,” Faieta told Reilly, referring to her unmatched dominance. “I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want to jinx it. I had the three in first inning and thought maybe I could keep doing it. Then I realized after a while that maybe it could happen.”

Faieta struck out all 21 hitters in the seven innings that make up full high school softball games. While she knew she had it in her, it took her coach a little longer to realize what was about to happen.

for non baseball fans...a K on a scorecard stands for a........"strikeout"...kind of obvious, and I haven't got a clue where that came from or why it is a K. But what an accomplishment...striking them all out..
