      –The truth and cover-up about voting machines in this country must become common knowledge. As well as what it will take to feel
      confident about voting as well unharassed at the polls.

      Very scary. This is what we need to address before next year’s elections.

    She has stayed true to her word, to a point, but she remains blunt and candid. In a pair of recent appearances, Justice Ginsburg critiqued the Trump administration’s travel ban, previewed the coming court term, predicted an end to capital punishment and suggested that the other branches of government are in disarray.

    Justice Ginsburg, 84, also described her grueling exercise routine, her link to a rap icon and her “graveyard” dissents.

    The first appearance came two days after the Supreme Court issued a terse and cryptic unsigned order recalibrating how much of Mr. Trump’s travel ban could be enforced while court challenges to it move forward. The order was two sentences long, and you could figure out what it meant mostly by inference.

      A really terrific character actor, I last saw him in in the Netflix series, Bloodline. A great performance.

      I was just reading he had Lou Gehrig’s disease. I’m so sorry he suffered. May he forever Rest In Peace.

          Isn’t that the equivalent of cutting of all diplomatic ties to a country? Seizing an embassy is a big deal. Still, I say bring it on. They would not have tried that with Pres. Obama or if elected Pres. Clinton.

          So how is Trump going to react to this insult? Is he just going to act as if nothing is happening? Weak as hell. Russia has no respect for the man in the White House.

    Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

    Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.

    The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.

    I really was inspired by this featured post. Its beautiful and fills the heart. I personally need that message most days of my life and I am of the age to start Medicare in a month. In so many ways we are all first generation and not just with college. I left an abusive marriage and have been on my own since. I need to go back to work in a field I haven’t worked in in a long time and its going to be hard. My children have all moved far away and I live in a community that is difficult because its closed and rural. I love the President and openly talk about this whenever it is a correct moment and that’s been hard work where I live. However, it is input in, effort in and success out even if it takes a long time. Every time I face a new challenge I have to have the same talk with myself. God, I absolutely love Michelle Obama. What a beautiful person inside and out. I wish she was my sister so I could chat with her on the phone and tell her about my life and my day and visa versa. Oh to have a friend like that.

      GA catrst.

      Good luck in your job search — sounds like it will be difficult, since their aren’t as many opportunities in rural areas, but you’ve got the determination to do well.

      Speaking of rural America, here’s a map (I love maps) of broadband access in rural America, and what stands out to me is that lack of connectivity seems to pervasive (pink and dark pink on the map) in the “Indian Territory” of this country. 😦

Another privileged person full of hubris who failed upwards the entirety of his business career, getting his comeuppance live and in living technicolor. Orange Fanta Fascist, Mooch and their ilk are just another illustration of why our country/government should NOT be “run like a business”.

    What the hell is going on, I’m sitting in my car at Wendy’s enjoying my artery clogging double burger and listening to sports radio. I’m a closet eater, that means I sneak off alone and eat things that I have no business eating. Anyway, it comes across the radio that the “Mooch” was fired, again I ask what the hell is going on?

      And if his supporters had any brains or insight into human behavior, this would have been a huge red flag.

      I don’t know what compels people to support, work for, or align themselves with him. Is it as simple as a being bunch of insanely gullible people? Deplorables aside, what makes potential staff members think they won’t get screwed over?

      That’s the most bizarre aspect of this for me.

    I didn’t see the mooch’s firing coming at all, a lot of people saw it coming but I wasn’t one of them. In my opinion the mooch did everything Trump could have wanted him to do and he still gets fired. I mean I’m not going to throw a telethon for the guy but I’m confused as to way he was let go.

      “When President Barack Obama created a task force for young black men in 2014, it took months of demands by black women for a similar task force to be created for young black women. Even then, the girls’ task force did not receive equal attention or funding”.

      I am glad a similar task force was created for young black women however I do see the need for focus to be placed on young men of color to have a task force and/or organizations that help them. Young AA boys are discriminated at a very young age, it starts in pre-school. They are labeled trouble makers and treated harshly. When we help AA young men this also helps young AA women too. AA women go to and finish college in higher numbers than their male counterparts. Funding is tight for any social/business program so I don’t see this as some type of slight against young AA young women.
