    Back to 1950

    • August 21, 2018 at 10:49 am

      Some of us have grandfathers who died of black lung and cancer related health issues caused by coal mining. People go down the mines because they don’t see any options. Because she grew up with coal burning my mother had a tendency to asthma and died because her lungs couldn’t fight an infection. Coal will get you 6 feet of Real Estate all right. On his day off from golfing Donald should try hanging out
      in a nice mine shaft.

        My grandfather was a coal miner, too, and – back in the 1950s when he passed away – the doctor said he was “chronologically one age, but physically much older.” He had to go into the coal mines at age 11, as the oldest son, to help support the family (which had come across from Germany in the late 1800s). Never forgot that.

        Damn trump and the other GOP freaks WHO DO NOT CARE.

    Trump’s Tinpot Dictatorship goes on nominating know-nothings like Ms. Kraninger for top government positions in exchange for political favors.
    Kathleen Kraninger helped set up the deal (with bad actor private prison agencies like GEO group) in order to profit from separating 3,000 children from their parents. So now President Double Down is nominating her to run the Consumer Protection Bureau – of which she knows nothing. Of course she cannot answer questions in Congress – but will be confirmed to the CFPB this week if not stopped. Is she a Russian sympathizer,
    just curious.

    It’s hard to breathe in the Pacific Northwest because of the fires. It’s also hard to breathe in coal country. Hope the jury verdict puts Manafort in the slammer or we won’t be able to breathe.

    I predict that they will come back about noon pacific time, which is about 3pm eastern time. I hope I am not reading this incorrectly when they say they can’t reach a verdict “on a single count”, it they mean they can’t agree on ANY counts? Is this a hung jury? I hope not. I am worried…..

        No, if he does a plea deal he will be out on his own recognizes. They only go to jail if they go against his plea deal. I think Papadoupolas needs to go to jail since he wants to renege on this plea deal. If he is not cooperating then he needs to go to jail.

      August 21, 2018 at 2:58 pm

      I’m not offended by the word “old” on my own account, as I sit here totally and blissfully retired, but I am about discounting ALL older people as though they have nothing left to offer, including the great Nancy Pelosi. I still came across a bit haughty – while trying to also salute him for being involved.

      • August 21, 2018 at 3:05 pm

        I wound up getting a lot of pushback from Bernie Bros and AOC fans but I couldn’t let it go without saying something.

          August 21, 2018 at 4:15 pm

          Only our culture does not respect our wise elders. I would say that Pelosi is “wise” with lots of knowledge that he and many young people can learn if they want to make this their either long term or short term career. I have NO problem with “career” politicians as long as they don’t forget who they work for and why they are there–not to get rich.

      So apparently this kid didn’t know or didn’t care about Nancy Pelosi’s accomplishments while in office. Nor does he know about Rubio and Ryan and Cruz. To have youth and fire is one thing, to be ignorant of history is quite another.

      Though 3-5 years might sound low, but trust me when I tell you that three years is a long time in prison, just count back three years from today. And that’s how long three years is, and for someone that has never been in jail before, three years is even longer.

      He should be found guilty on all 18 Don. The judge did not help in this matter. He purposely made inappropriate comments, would not let the prosecution list the exhibits for each count, etc. I can imagine how frustrating it must have been to try to figure out what all the 18 counts were. I do not blame this jury I blame the judge. He needs to retire.

        It should be against the law for a President to pardon someone he told to commit a crime. The power to pardon was not for this purpose. I guess our founding fathers did not think the American people would elect/vote for a criminal. Anyone who voted for this man voted for a criminal. If these same people say that people crossing the border “committed a crime” when they have not been tried then they have to admit that Orange-Turd in the WH clearly committed a crime too.
