Sep 7, 2020 - Robert Frost
But over its terrible edge there had slipped A duke and full many a peasant. So the people said something would have to be done, But their projects did not at all tally; Some said, “Put a fence around the edge of the cliff,” Some, “An ambulance down in the valley.” But the cry for the ambulance carried the day, For it spread through the neighboring city; A fence may be useful or not, it is true, But each heart became brimful of pity For those who slipped over the dangerous cliff; And the dwellers in highway and alley Gave pounds or gave...Jump to full entry
Aug 26, 2020 - New Girl
I must say I am totally amazed by how quickly and completely changing from one channel of reality to another can make life so much more pleasant and enjoyable. We were watching the Republican convention and questioned our own sanity. Then we changed to watching the entire last season of New Girl and at the end, although sad, we realized that this group of people we have been enjoying for the past 2+ months had become part of our family! Our sanity returned and happiness once again entered our lives. These friends we now call family are...Jump to full entry
Aug 25, 2020 - Larry Kudlow - Who is he? An economic supporter of Trump...
larry kudlow wikipedia: Kudlow was a strong advocate of George W. Bush's substantial tax cuts, and argued that the tax cuts would lead to an economic boom of equal magnitude. After the implementation of the Bush tax cuts, Kudlow insisted year after year that the economy was in the middle of a "Bush boom", and chastised other commentators for failing to realize it. Kudlow firmly denied that the United States would enter a recession in 2007, or that it was in the midst of a recession in early to mid-2008. In December 2007, he wrote: "The...Jump to full entry
The following is a quote from an interview relating the beginnings of the ‘conservative intellectuals’ and the rise of Raygun... ——- “The hallmark of the Republican Party is cowardice.” Of all the “Never Trumpers,” Stuart Stevens might be the most interesting. Stevens is one of the most successful GOP operatives in the last couple of decades. He helped lead several presidential campaigns (notably George W. Bush’s two campaigns and Mitt Romney’s failed bid in 2012) and multiple gubernatorial and congressional races. He’s as seasoned as they...Jump to full entry
Aug 24, 2020 - HOSTAGES - Are we all now?
We’ve been to Turkey, Syria, Iran, and India where the hostages were captive in these countries. Never experienced the animosity or type of interactions that these people expressed. I would like to know what caused their arrests in the first place?! The whole ‘event’ staged with the President seemed very stilted and somehow dishonest in the way it was presented! No background presented as to why these people found themselves hostages? Was it a political ploy by countries in retaliation or due to actions taken by the hostages themselves? The...Jump to full entry
Aug 21, 2020 - BIDEN VS Trump
Full Acceptance Speech _____ Give people light. Those are words for our time. The current president has cloaked America in darkness for much too long. Too much anger. Too much fear.

It's time for us, for We the People, to come together. For make no mistake. United we can, and will, overcome this season of darkness in America. We will choose hope over...Jump to full entry

Full Speech on State of Union and Where we go from here _____ The 44th president has rarely criticized Mr. Trump by name, but he did not hesitate to denounce his successor Wednesday night. "I have sat in the Oval Office with both of the men who are running for president. I never expected that my successor would embrace my vision or continue my policies. I did hope, for the sake of our country, that Donald Trump might show some interest in taking the job seriously; that he might come to feel the weight of the office and discover some...Jump to full entry

Why the Mauritius oil spill is so serious The amount of oil spilled from the Japanese-owned ship nearby the lagoons and coastal areas of south-east Mauritius is relatively low compared to the big oil spills the world has seen in the past, but the damage it will do is going to be huge, experts say. Unlike most previous offshore spills, this has taken place near two environmentally protected marine ecosystems and the Blue Bay Marine Park reserve, which is a wetland of international importance. So, it's the location rather than the size of the...Jump to full entry
