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.

Journal Archives

Favorite ..."Happy Movies"...just to enjoy and recover from all of this...

Airplane.., The Producers, Blazing Saddles...Mad, Mad, Mad World...Star Trek IV..(one about the whales)..

I believe Trump will give a kind ,respectful, and honorable concession speech..Why?

for one reason only......because whatever is left of his so called "brand" , he will try to save it..

Also, a kind, respectful and honorable concession speech, will be his most watched speech ever. Even though he is having major issues, if he keeps it short and to the point, it could offer him some peace as he tries to recover from this loss.

Perhaps this is wishful thinking, but it makes sense for Trump and his family. In trying to save his name for his family, there might be enough motivation to make this speech an important and remembered one . And if he goes out with "class," it will help everyone to heal. It could be the one time that he did not think totally about himself. (even in the process of saving his name for his children) That would be good for all.


I know this one is kind of odd, but if enough people see this, it could get back to Trump. Perhaps if someone in his staff/or family.. sees something like the above, and talks to him,,,,, it could help us all to heal..,,,

Kurt Eichenwaid lists Trump's Failures & destroys his self-proclaimed business prowess .Raw Story.:


Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald has spent the election researching Donald Trump so thoroughly that it has even prompted investigations and lawsuits.

Playing the role of a closer, Eichenwald went off on a Twitterstorm of his research that outlines the horrifying deals that should eliminate Trump’s business prowess as a qualification for the White House.

__(similar story up, different title in General Discussion..,posting here for more exposure)..posted there by salin.....and this list contains at least 125 items of research on Trump's lies and failures!.a hugeeeee list..

What I think we'll see tomorrow night..Josh Marshall, Talking Points Memo:


by Josh Marshall, published 11/7/16, 1:59 pm ET

Let me share with you my take on the race on the day before election day.

A group of reasons make me think Clinton is increasingly likely to win and increasingly likely to outperform the numbers which have seemed likely for the last week plus. I don't like making predictions. I think for the same reason I've never understood the appeal of gambling. I don't know the future. Why would I cause myself anxiety by stipulating to something I don't know? In any case, looking at the public polls, the best breakdowns of the early vote, the indications of a high turnout election in general, what I can glean about what Clinton campaign thinks is happening, I suspect Clinton is going to over-perform the public polls and end up with a more lopsided victory than a lot of us have expected.

Am I sure? Not at all. These are just 'more likely than not' reads; and a lot of those reads are favoring Clinton.

Glen Beck, "Obama Made Me a Better Man,,Talking Points Memo:

Even a busted clock is right twice a day............please read the last line...

ByCaitlin MacNeal Published November 7, 2016, 12:40 PM EDT


It seems Glenn Beck likes to catch everyone off guard every once in a while with a
compassionate revelation or opposition to the conservative mainstream.

The pundit has been outspoken about his dislike for Donald Trump, has criticized Republicans for refusing to consider President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, and he has even urged "empathy" for the Black Lives Matter movement.

And now, Beck — who once said that Obama has a "a deep-seated hatred for white people" — says that the President has made him a better person.

"I did a lot of freaking out about Barack Obama," the conservative pundit told the New Yorker in a recent interview. “Obama made me a better man. ”Beck said that he regrets calling Obama a racist and recognizes that it's hard to relate to the experiences of African Americans.

“There are things unique to the African-American experience that I cannot relate to,” he told the New Yorker. “I had to listen to them.”

(in talking about Trump...brackets are mine)

“This guy is dangerously unhinged,” Beck told the New Yorker. “And, for all the things people have said about me over the years, I should be able to spot Dangerously Unhinged.”

(further down ............)

Beck praised Michelle Obama's campaign speeches warning of the dangers of Donald Trump, specifically the first lady's speech in New Hampshire blasting Trump over his vulgar comments on a now-notorious 2005 tape.

“She didn’t say, ‘The government should do X, Y, or Z.’ She said, ‘We,’ ‘Us’—without a political party. ‘We are better.’ ‘We need to stop this,’ ” he told the New Yorker. “It had to do with ‘Who are you as a human being?’ ‘How do you view women?’ Brilliant speech."

“That was a moment that transcended all political thought," he added.............


Five Simple Words that Describe the Republican Party...

Hate, Hate and More Hate......

The primary system did this...This is how it happened.

So among the republicans, 34 -38 percent of them favor Trump. Now, if there was one very strong opponent, he would not have won. But.....among 13 others, he was the strongest..given he had more solid support than the others. The others had their "faults" and they failed to gain strength. So Trump emerged with the most support..and became the nominee...

In Nazi Germany in the early 30s, before he was made the boss, it was exactly the same. Hitler had the same amount of support among the Germans as did Trump among the Republicans. At the time, the President Paul von Hindenburg. had to choose a Prime Minister,,( Chancellor as it was called in Germany) from the crowd of politicians who had just competed in an election..He choose Hitler because it seems that he would bring the most stability to a torn country..January 30, 1933....The rest is history...

Now..Hillary is a very strong leader. She has most of the support from the establishment and a majority of the population.. Although Trump still has that support among his base, Hillary is the lone opponent not a field of many as was the Republican Primary. Yes, the media wants a "horse race" , but this is no race of horses. This is an election where most see Trump for what he is. There is a fear that Trump will win like in 2000 or back in the early 30s in Germany. Perhaps that fear is real..but, that outcome is impossible if we all vote the way we think. The great majority of the population is totally against Trump to be President of the United States. If that majority votes, Trump cannot win..no matter what the media says...

This is not the republican primary or Germany in the early 30s. Trump's support is a minority, and Hillary's support is a very strong majority.. (oh, and the other two candidates from minor parties..who I will not name.will not affect this election..can they can go to hell !!!! )_
