About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

" The man doth protest too much, methinks"



This was written a very long time ago. Written by William Shakespeare from Hamlet..
______________________________________________________________________________________ _
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks" is a line from the c. 1600 play Hamlet by William Shakespeare, where it is spoken by Queen Gertrude in response to the insincere overacting of a character in the play within a play created by Prince Hamlet to prove his uncle's guilt in the murder of his father, the King of Denmark.[1][2]

The phrase is used in everyday speech to indicate doubt in someone's sincerity.
from Wikipedia at this link:

...Over and over Trump claims "no collusion" in tweets, press conferences, etc. Day after day. Yet that kind of protest indicates "doubt in someone's sincerity" That is from Wikipedia. Hamlet was written about 400 years ago, but it really does describes Trump in the year 2018. Yes, Trump lacks "sincerity"

Will Trump's lawyer go to jail for Mr. Trump?

I don't think so.

The One Thing You Should Always Have In Your Home: Gratitude

Chanel Parks, Huff Post

If thereís one thing you should let collect dust in your home, itís thank you cards. Why? One word: gratitude.

The function of a thank you note goes beyond just ďthankingĒ someone for a housewarming gift or birthday present. Rather, such a note can serve as a heartfelt message that shows people you care about that they are meaningful to you. Whether itís your best friend who let you crash at her apartment for a weekend or your plumber, anyone can use a good dose of thanks.

As study after study shows, gratitude is actually pretty powerful, with benefits for people on either end of the equation. According to the UC Berkley Greater Good Science Center, giving thanks can boost the immune system. Itís also known to promote a good night of sleep and make you feel less lonely.

While we donít want to encourage you to mindlessly hoard items in your home, we do believe in the idea of purposefully collecting cards. Their presence in your home will remind you to express gratitude, and make it easier for you to do so.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Knowing that people express gratitude to us, gives us a reminder that we need to express gratitude to others. Just for being there or being a friend. Having people to contact makes me feel better. Anyway, thank you for being here in the lounge. It is a nice safe place !!!

Incriminating Tapes?...What is on the tapes?..It seems like we have heard this before.

Tapes that prove that someone is lying? Is this a rerun ? Maybe this show is worse than the last one. It seems to involve a foreign power that is an enemy of the United States. And someone is colluding with the leader of that foreign power. And it looks like an investigation is going to "uncover" the truth. Will someone get fired? Is it possible that someone could resign? Hopefully we will all see the outcome of this show..titled...."The Story Of The Tapes. Episode 2"

Trump vs Media.. One important consequence..

It appears to all of us, that Trump spends a whole lot of time dealing with the "fake media." Someone reports this, then he has to tweet that. The media criticizes him on something, then a response that is equal or stronger needs to be made by Trump. Since there is lots of criticism, (it goes with the job) there needs to be lots of tweets and responses.

Trump seems to be spending a whole lot of time tweeting and responding to criticism of the press and his critics. That is very obvious. What is important is that the time he spends doing this, and being mad about this, could be spent dealing with problems, learning about problems, and coming up with solutions to potential problems. Problems that the country is facing, or could be facing. This in my opinion is far more important than tweeting and responding to critics.

"The Media is the enemy of the people." is a lie. We know it.. But why does Trump repeat that lie..

.......over and over again. ...........????

Joseph Goebbels said, "If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth." And who was Joseph Goebbels? He was Hitler's propaganda expert. Therefore, Trump is using an idea that Hitler used in ruling Germany. And, Trump is indeed saying that over and over, and he will continue to say it over and over...And that is why..... He got the "over and over" idea from Hitler....pass it on....

"The Worst Case Scenario Has Been Obvious For A While" Josh Marshal, Talking Points Memo:

last two sentences very important....

Yes, this is the entire article: ______________________________________________________________________________________

The video clips below speak for themselves. Thereís little to add to them. Iím watching big think types on TV right now expressing outrage, surprise, bewilderment, anger that President Trump didnít ďhold Putin accountable.Ē Sometimes when youíre surprised again and again and again, itís time to consider your assumptions.

If youíre a regular reader, you know that Iím pretty cautious in my arguments, cautious on a lot of fronts. I can be aggressive in how I frame those arguments. I sometimes speak in hyperbole. But in basic judgments Iím quite cautious. Something is fundamentally wrong here. There is no reasonable explanation for the simple facts we see other than that Russia has some kind of hold over President Trump.

I know that sounds wild and I have a very hard time sometimes quite believing it myself. But itís so overwhelmingly obvious that we need to get real with ourselves and recognize what is happening. I donít know what the specific details are. I donít know whether Russia has some compromising information on the President, whether they have enticed him with personal enrichment. I truly donít know. But none of the standard explanations Ė truculence, trolling, anger over questioning the legitimacy of his election Ė none of them remotely add up as an explanation. In the future, when we know more details, we will have a difficult time explaining how any serious people continued to think there could be an innocent explanation.

Astronomers donít see black holes directly. They see other celestial objects being affected by them. They infer the presence of a black hole by its gravitational pull. It is a deduction but a basically certain one because objects do not bend the course of their trajectory without a massive gravitational pull. As I wrote eighteen months ago, as the Russia story was erupting, you can infer the scope and depth of a scandal by its gravitational pull, often long before you know the particular details. President Trumpís actions make perfect sense if your assumptions are correct. Either by fear or avarice or some other species of control that exceeds the capacity of my imagination Russia exerts a control over President Trump. So the US is in grave danger.

This event with Trump, and the Republicans Party's failure to strongly condem him could

hurt the Republican Party greatly. come November. Trumps follow up today further strengthens that view that Trump is more pro Russia, than pro USA.

This November could be truly great for our side. Lots and lots of people are pissed at Trump. Even Comey has urged people to vote Democratic. While I hate Comey, I do not think he will be the last republican to take this view. There will be others. I sure hope we take back the senate, I would love to see that asshole McConnell become minority leader.

His follow ups this morning, prove he is really stupid.

This morning's tweets prove Trump cannot shut up when he needs to "shut up." There are times that we all know, that it is best to say nothing. You make a mistake, say you are sorry for the mistake, and then "shut up." The idea of always getting the "last word" is wrong. Trying to follow up on stupid remarks like Trump has done this morning, is even more stupid. But Trump doesn't even know that.
