    Lucky me! I mentioned before my oldest son is treating me. He bought us tickets to Michelle’s book tour, airfare and a hotel room for the LA Forum in mid November.

    He has a PhD from Yale in American History. He knows exactly what he is doing and the hypocrisy is blinding.

    You have a President who have no problem supporting leaders who cut people into pieces.When I say Trump is a disgusting disgrace, he is a disgusting disgrace and so are the people who support him.

    October 20, 2018 10:35 am

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A government computer system that interacts with HealthCare.gov was hacked earlier this month, compromising the sensitive personal data of some 75,000 people, officials said Friday.

    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services made the announcement late in the afternoon ahead of a weekend, a time slot agencies often use to release unfavorable developments.

    Officials said the hacked system was shut down and technicians are working to restore it before sign-up season starts Nov. 1 for health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

    About 10 million people currently have private coverage under former President Barack Obama’s health care law.

    Evergreen blog post

  44. October 20, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    “Putin celebrates as Trump abandons treaty that limits Russia’s use of Ballistic Missiles” (Colarossi, politicus)
    (NYT): “The Trump administration is preparing to tell Russian leaders next week that it is planning to exit the landmark Intermediate-Range
    Nuclear Forces Treaty.”
    (Hill): “The 1987 pact bans all land-based missile with ranges of 310 to 3,420 miles and includes missiles carrying both nuclear and conventional warheads. The original ban between Moscow and Washington resulted in 2,692 missiles being destroyed.”
    (Brookings Institution): “[O]nce the United States withdraws from the treaty, there is no reason for Russia to even pretend it is observing the limits. Moscow will be free to deploy the 9M729 cruise missile, and an intermediate-range ballistic missile if it wants, without any restraint. [T]he
    United States currently has no missile that it could quickly deploy to match the Russians…U.S. withdrawal from the INF Treaty is a loser all around. Russian officials probably are celebrating the news.”
    –Dicktraitor paving the way for Putin’s Little Russia every possible way. United States National Security is meaningless to him.

    Folks, I need to vent and rant. I was able to spend over two hours last night with my best and dearest friend from childhood. My mother helped raise her and she and my mother had a beautiful bond. I asked her to speak at my mom’s funeral service and it was beautiful. She and her husband are retired and have two homes, one in Hartsville, SC and one on “Heaton Creek” where we grew up. It was her family home that they practically rebuilt 15-20 years ago. They were on “The Creek” this weekend and that’s how I got to see her. Near the end of my visit, politics came up. She knows I am a Dem and active here in Knoxville. Here’s what I am still hearing in my head and caused me to sleep a total of 3 hours tops last night!!!!!!! “You know we are “died in the wool” Republicans. We LOVE him and think he’s doing a great job. The economy is doing great.” I knew it was not worth ‘going there’ so I was diplomatic and talked about how things happening in our country are just “not normal…..that our institutions and political norms are under attack. Went on to say that I had told our pastor that this election is not about Dems vs. Republicans. Instead it is about truth and honesty, morality, ethics, integrity, kindness, compassion, hope vs. fear, love vs. hate. It went right over her head as she said, “It really is an important election.” I didn’t respond and said my goodbyes with hugs and “Love you.” No, I was not surprised, but OMG< WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!?!?!?!?! It's like as long as 'the economy' is fine, they see NOTHING ELSE. I know they watch nothing but Fox so I do get that she doesn't even know 1/1,000000000000000000 of what is really going on every day. What are these people going to say and do when all this crap hits the fan? We all know that it will at some point. The truth WILL eventually come out. Yes, it's not quick enough. Much damage has already been done and more will be done, but in the end, I have to believe, or try to, that truth will prevail and we will survive.

    I remember what I told my R husband fairly early in the Iraq War and a period where things were just awful with so many of our people being killed and injured every day, etc. He knew how I felt before we even went in that I was against it, knew it was a war of choice and never believed there was WMDs. I told him one night that I was promising him right then that the truth WILL come out. It may be a few years or many years, but truth will prevail. And,of course, it did.

    Okay, rant over. I was looking forward to going to a fund raiser for all our women candidates tonight. MY husband is hiking so it was good timing. However, I am practically sick from lack of sleep and the long and stressful drive I had getting home. It would not be safe for me to be on the road.

      We all have those”friends”…either let it go, or go after her to educate her. Those are the choices. Meantime, you keep doing what you’re doing to support the Dems and we can hope that enough of us can carry the day and make those that think like her, mute. Hugs to you. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger! Fight on!

      Thanks for writing your post. I have a similar situation only it involves my two brothers. The one living next door is a conspiracy believing libertarian yet voted twice for Obama then for Trump. I get nowhere trying to reason with him and find myself hating him at times. My other brother lives in MT and is a typical gun toting Redneck. I knew I would not be able to persuade him. My next door neighbor brother is the one that makes my blood pressure rise. My MT brother’s wife is on our side. My four grown children and their spouses are on our side too. My State Representative and Senators are on our side too.

      Dronald wants Americans to be afraid to vote. However the Criminal-In-Chief probably knows that he’s more likely to be struck by lightning than find actual voter fraud. Max penalties heading in his direction though right?
