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.

Why the "tax thing" is greater than it appears...not to us,....

but to Drumpf supporters....many of which are leaving him.....

Drumpf said he would release his taxes after the election...Made sense to his supporters, "Wait till this is over"...that is ok with me....but..............................................

IT IS OVER ..FOR A WHILE......AND .........

his supporters and others are waiting for him to keep his word.....which he won't do...but..............

his supporters thought he would keep his word on this...after the election..yes..In all recent elections that is what is done...You said you would do it, well do it...many of his supporters think. They want to see it too..Just like we do..and...all recent presidents have released theirs...His supporters, are becoming ...ex supporters..because it seems Don the Con is not keeping his word...What do you know....He really is a liar..even to his own people...Also, this is an important issue..Taxes would tell a lot. The others did it.

Will federal funds be provided to states prevent future election hacking?

Ok ..It happened once...Will Congress set up funds and a system for states to make sure that it doesn't happen again?...My opinion..?..No. Why? It favored them, that is all they care about..Some may vote for such provisions..but I don't think it will ever even get to a vote. Who knows?

High School Journalists Land a Scoop, and the Principal Resigns: NYTimes


Four days after students at a high school newspaper in Kansas published an article that questioned the credentials of a recently hired principal, she resigned.

The episode, which unfolded at Pittsburg High School in Pittsburg, Kan., about 125 miles south of Kansas City, garnered news coverage and won praise from journalism organizations for investigative reporting by student journalists.

The story began to germinate on March 6, when the Pittsburg Community Schools announced it had hired Amy Robertson as the high school principal.

In a statement, it said her “diverse and extensive experience impressed district staff and leadership and repeatedly propelled her to the top” of the list of candidates. She had “decades of experience in education” and was the chief executive of a consulting firm that advised companies on education, the statement said.

Maddie Baden, a 17-year-old junior and a staff member of the student-run newspaper The Booster Redux, set out to write a profile. Emily Smith, a teacher and adviser to The Redux, said on Wednesday that she had not expected the reporting to lead to questions about Ms. Robertston’s credentials.

“We’re Midwesterners,” she said. “As soon as somebody puts something on paper, we think they’re honest about what they’re saying.”

But in multiple interviews over several days, Ms. Robertson provided details of her background that did not hold up, Ms. Smith said.

Then Ms. Robertson became increasingly evasive.

“She was asked direct questions,” Ms. Smith said. “She couldn’t give direct answers.”

This article delves into this story far greater than others. It offers background information and insight that makes this outstanding reporting. We get to know the method the students use to undress a phony principal, before that person actually became a principal Outstanding reading, and in this case, the phony crook is caught before the crime, by the least likely detectives ....the students at the school the principal was going to be principal of..

In a real-life Superman moment, a New York City man lifted another man off the subway train tracks barely a minute before the train was due to arrive.
