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.

Auschwitz Survivor Confronts ICE Director: History Is Not On Your Side: Huff Post


03/29/2017 05:27 am ET by Ed Mazza

A Holocaust survivor who was imprisoned in both the Auschwitz and Dachau concentration camps warned President Donald Trump’s top immigration enforcer that history was not on the administration’s side.

In a dramatic moment at a public forum on immigration Tuesday, 87-year-old Bernard Marks confronted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan.

“When I was a little boy in Poland, for no other reason but for being Jewish, I was hauled off by the Nazis,” Marks said. “And for no other reason I was picked up and separated from my family, who was exterminated in Auschwitz. And I am a survivor of Auschwitz and Dachau.”

Marks then proceeded to warn Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, who hosted the event, against working closely with Homan to carry out the Trump Administration’s strict deportation policies, which include stalking immigrants at courthouses.

The bad guys lost..and it was a loss they will never forget.

The bad guys who wanted to kill people by taking away their health insurance and give themselves a reward for doing so...... lost..The good people who wanted to keep as many as possible on health insurance, and consequently save lives of people..won.

It really is as simple as that. Those that pushed this "kill the people bill" need to be connected with it as long as they are in politics, and as long as they live.

Those who fought against them, and won, can be proud that we won. WE beat the evil assholes up. The evil assholes were not even willing to take a vote . Chicken shit. Afraid to stand up and be counted so they ran.
But they were counted anyway. The evil assholes are indeed evil assholes.

House Intel Chief Tipps Off Trump...Huff Post..


Rep. Devin Nunes’ bombshell disclosures about surveillance on Trump associates raise more questions than they answer.

By Jessica Schulberg , Nick Baumann , Sam Stein. 03/22/2017 04:56 pm ET | Updated 4 minutes ago
WASHINGTON ― Investigators don’t normally brief the people they’re investigating. But on Wednesday afternoon, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the Republican who’s leading a congressional investigation into whether President Donald Trump’s team colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, went to the White House to talk to the president.

U.S. intelligence agencies had intercepted Trump associates’ communications ― and perhaps those of Trump himself ― in the final three months of the Obama administration, Nunes said he told Trump.

Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a close Trump ally, said the intercepted communications didn’t mention Russia and were therefore unrelated to his investigation. But the subject matter ― the intelligence community’s investigation of Trump and his associates’ connections to foreign powers ― overlapped. And Nunes’ objective appeared political: Deflect attention from Trump and his associates’ ties to Russia, and back up Trump’s claim that he is a victim of “deep state” loyal to former President Barack Obama.

Nunes’ gambit failed. In attempting to put out the Trump-Russia fire, he made much of it worse: In two press conferences on Wednesday, he confirmed that Trump’s surrogates ― and maybe the president himself ― were subjects of legal surveillance, implied that they may have had suspicious contact with agents from a country other than Russia, and potentially disclosed classified information.

And by choosing to brief the president, who’s so closely tied to the investigation, before sharing his new information with his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Nunes also raised doubts about his own ability to lead his committee’s probe.

Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said that Nunes “will need to decide if he is the chairman of an independent investigation or if he’s a surrogate for the White House.”

Shortly after talking to Trump about his findings, Nunes deflected accusations that he had compromised his impartiality or revealed information and methods that should otherwise have been classified. “What I saw has nothing to do with Russia and nothing to do with the Russian investigation,” he said. “It has everything to do with possible surveillance activities ... and I have the duty to tell [Trump] that.”

So..Nunes says, "....I have the duty to tell [Trump] that."...no you don't. Your duty is to the people of the USA, not Drumpf. You, Nunes, have disqualified yourself from this committee. You did not share this info with the Democratic counterpart, Adam Schiff..(D-Calf) before you talked to your pal Drumpf.. You loose asshole.. You have compromised yourself forever...

Trump: Working Class Zero, Maureen Dowd, NYT, 3/13

It’s not unknown, of course.

In ancient Egypt, there was the symbol of the ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. Nerve-addled octopuses sometimes consume their own arms.

But we’ve never watched a president so hungrily devour his own presidency.

Soon, there won’t be anything left except the sound of people snickering.

Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories. As he rages in the storm, Lear-like, howling about poisonous fake news, he is spewing poisonous fake news.

Disney accused in new lawsuit of ripping off idea for 'Zootopia,' the billion-dollar Academy Award-

Source: CNBC: by Dan Mangan..3pm ET

What kind of animal would steal a movie idea about .... animals?

Walt Disney was slapped Tuesday with a lawsuit claiming it ripped off the idea for its Oscar-winning, billion-dollar-grossing animated animal flick "Zootopia" from a Hollywood veteran.

The federal suit says screenwriter and producer Gary Goldman pitched the idea for "Zootopia" which he literally had called "Zootopia" twice over the years to Disney and a film company that had a production contract with Disney.

The most recent pitch was in 2009, the suit by Goldman's Esplanade Productions claims. It alleges copyright infringement, breach of implied-in-fact contract, breach of confidence and unfair competition.

Disney eventually produced "Zootopia" for release last year.

OH MY...SAY IT AIN'T SO........??????????

It says that a company like "Disney" stole an idea for a movie from someone else...but...that someone else..evidently has ..."proof" that Disney stole the idea...Now...what do you suppose is going to happen??
I have followed that company over the years...and they ain't the nicest people...They may try to get you to think they are.....but no...their history is ........they ain't............

Yes...early history, in 40s.. when Disney was in charge.....
The company did not want unions...(a number of artists quit after trying to form one)
The company did not want women to be in charge...(women almost never ..repeat never got to any higher level animation positions...
Other minorities were not given much of a chance either..

This is very stupid..Teenager Mauled Jumping into Crocodile Stream on a Bet..

No....I didn't make this one up...don't need to,,
.Stupid is what Stupid is


An 18-year-old Australian youth is recovering after being mauled by a crocodile after jumping into a river for a bet. Lee De Paauw was apparently boasting about how he could swim in the dangerous waters in Johnstone River, north Queensland at around 2.30 am on Saturday (18 March).

A saltwater crocodile – known as an estuarine crocodile or "saltie" – managed to grab his arm but De Paauw managed to punch it and get away. Friends rushed him to hospital in Cairns and doctors said he should make a full recovery.

"Reports from the scene are he was dared to jump into the water, which he did and unfortunately that area is well known for its crocodile population," local paramedic Neil Noble told 9 News. "We're just very grateful that he's survived this incident because it could have turned out to be quite fatal. Certainly to get out the water was absolutely vital in case that crocodile was able to get a good grip on him and do the death roll and then drown him."

English backpacker Sophie Paterson, 24, told the Courier and Mail: "He sort of made this claim 'I'll swim out and back', at first we just said 'don't be so ridiculous' and didn't think he was going to go through with it,'' said Paterson. "It all happened very fast, pretty much as soon as he jumped in, there was splashing and screaming."

Sessions will be gone by the end of the day, today. March 2..

It is guess. It is so clear a lie, and could become the center of attention for months and years. He will be gone because that is what Trump will do. (Of course..it is a guess, and I haven't got a clue..)

A "proposal" for change to ACA is a "proposal" that is all.

3..just three republican senators could stop this so called "proposal" forever...We got 48, they got 52...If 3 of them, say ....no to the "proposal" , then it does not become law..Are there 3 of them who could say "no" to the proposal?..
