So I'm sitting here watching "State of the Union"

Great Tracy/Hepburn movie from 1948. If you've never seen it, you need to. Anyhow, damn near broke down when this scene came on.

So been watching the talking heads clutch their pearls over Joe Biden's gaffes.

And it hit me. Joe's gaffes still make more sense than anything that comes out of Trump's mouth.

Hi everyone...need some help here.

I've never posted to this group before, but I hope you guys can guide me in the right direction.

My niece is having serious problems with her 16 year old daughter...details are irrelevant, but it starts with her being a flat out pathological liar and proceeds from there. She's been in therapy for a few years, and nothing seems to be helping. Even though her parents have taken her electronic devices and only let her use them under supervision for school work, she still manages to get on social media and spread some of the most egregious stories imaginable. CPS actually visited the house and opened a case because she made all her friends and their parents believe she was living in a hell hole.

Anyhow, all the adults in the room have come to the realization that the "regular" paths aren't working...she needs to go into a program for troubled kids, and this is where you guys come in.

I worry about these "conversion camps" masquerading as something that can help your kid, but screw them up worse. Does anyone here have any recommendations, or know someone you trust who can? I've been looking on the web, but again, they can say whatever they want, but who knows how they operate? They live on the east coast, but I don't think location would be an issue.

Thanks so much in advance for any advice or information you may be able to offer.

OK...so here's how we handle the argument that "Dems did it, too."

I had to turn off the sound because I was getting ready to puke, but from what I did hear, the Rethugs in the form of Kevin McCarthy are throwing the Steele dossier out there to muddy the waters...Adam Schiff took info from a foreign source, blah, blah, blah.

You guys will correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember that Steele's report was in response to "Never Trump" Republicans who were trying to get dirt to stop Trump from getting the nomination. When they realized they weren't going to stop him, they offered up the info they had gotten to the Clinton campaign. So it was never the Dems in the first place who turned to a foreign source (not government, BTW)...it was Republicans trying to save their party from a lunatic.

But then again, this being brought up would actually involve research and remembering stuff on the part of journalists. Not sure that's gonna happen. Instead, I can see them constantly bringing this up as "both sides do it".

Rachel sure has a way of making everything better, doesn't she?

Like most of us here, I felt kind of gut punched on Friday. But it appears that Mueller is still playing 3 dimensional chess. Trump's no more exonerated than Nixon was. We need to stay tuned, and stay positive. Like Rachel says, watch this space.
