Total arrogance of Laura Ingraham.

Laura took a mean shot at a survivor of a horrific experience. In public for all to see. She thought that she could get away with it because she was "Laura Ingraham of Fox News"....so instead of apologizing directly and instantly in a kind and regretful way...Like, "I am sorry and I was wrong for what I said, please forgive me..." Instead of that...which might have worked...

She snarked it up, It was a sarcastic mean statement...But also, she mocked him. .."In the interest of the holy week...."..or whatever, and most important of all....."she thought she could get away with it" Her arrogance and attitude that basically says, "I am from Fox News, and I can say what I want" has destroyed her. It is a reflection of Trump and that whole attitude of "I am invincible."

Her advertisers know you don't talk that way, but she did not know. Her arrogance blinded her.
Perhaps she has learned something. Perhaps. Maybe others have learned. Maybe, but I sincerely doubt it.

Donald Trump Gets Mocked After Showing He Really Doesnt Know What The Post Office Does

Yahoo News/Huff Post:


Ed Mazza, Huff Post, March 30, 2018
President Donald Trump on Thursday returned to one of his favorite targets, attacking online retail giant Amazon over taxes, its effect on brick-and-mortar stores and one other thing that caused some head-scratching.

Trump said Amazon uses “our Postal System as their Delivery Boy.”

That has people wondering: Isn’t the United States Postal Service supposed to be in the delivery business?

It’s in their mission:
“The Postal Service mission is to provide a reliable, efficient, trusted and affordable universal delivery service that connects people and helps businesses grow.”

The USPS says on its website that it’s “the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation,” and notes that it delivers 47 percent of the world’s mail.

Trump seems to imply that the company’s heavy use of the USPS is, as he tweeted, “causing tremendous loss to the U.S.”

rest of article at link..

My comment:...Sometimes we really don't know where Trump is coming from. Is he lost in space? Is he on the way to the Klingon Empire? Who is in charge? How stupid can someone be? What the hell does this mean?. Yes, he is lost in space..but it ain't any space around here. He is lost in his own universe, in his own world, and totally lost about telling the truth..

Do you remember the 1st Full Length Movie you saw in a Movie Theater??

My first was ..."14 Hours" ..1951 film about a man who was going to jump off a ledge. The whole film is about whether or not he is going to jump off this building...boring....boring...boring...Here is a review from IMBD.

A Gym Built on Fear...CNN: (USA Olympic Coach-Abuse)

warning: (abuse : ignoring injuries, verbal assault, in many ways horrific.)

By Majlie de Puy Kamp
CNN Investigates:

Larry Nassar molested them. Now gymnasts describe a different kind of abuse by famed Olympic coach John Geddert
Late one night in the fall of 2012, 17-year-old Brittany Aragon overdosed. She took four Valium pills, lay down in bed and waited.

She was nervous, she said, but the thought of having to go back to the gym and face her coach, John Geddert, terrified her more than taking the pills.

While Larry Nassar was sexually abusing gymnasts in the back room of Twistars Gymnastics in Lansing, Michigan, Geddert – the famed Olympic coach and then-owner of the gym – was subjecting them to a different kind of horror: routinely ignoring their injuries and verbally assaulting them, according to former gymnasts and their families.

Seven gymnasts and their families gave CNN detailed accounts, medical records and electronic communications that they say document years of abuse at the hands of Geddert.

One says he injured her so badly it ended her career at age 17. Another says he failed to get her medical attention after she broke her neck at practice, an injury she said the doctor told her could have left her paralyzed. A third gymnast said Geddert made her train on a broken leg for nearly a month when she was 13. Two teenage gymnasts attempted suicide. All the young women who spoke to CNN said he repeatedly disregarded their injuries.

The Pro Gun Lobby is Quiet, It is not dead..

It rests after an event. Like the Las Vegas shooting, or Sandy Hook. This is such an event. Those in congress who protect the gun lobby are resting. It may be a week to ten days. But they will do everything possible to stop new national laws or state laws. Or limit new laws in ways that make them much less effective. This fight has just begun.

Loyola University in Chicago...Final Four.??

When I was living in Chicago, I lived about one half mile from the campus. I passed it many times in a week. Now, I am about 6 miles away. It would be great if they won. I think they did win about 50 years ago...oh my..? Did I just post that? because I vaguely remember watching them...back then...

back to doing the wash..

About those 4 senators with A ratings from the NRA...They are:

Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.)..

Progressive liberals will not win in those states. Do you want the above, who vote with the rest of the Democrats on almost all social issues. (not gun issues, obviously)...or do you want republicans. It is simple and very clear.
Tester is running for re-election.. How about a republican instead?..A liberal will not win in Montana....
Tester is now the senator...let's keep him. Yes, he ain't perfect on issues. On most key votes, he votes D..

Do you want a R instead?..Do you want a chance to take over the senate?.

.......Fuck the NRA ratings....if we take back the senate...then we really do hurt McConnell .and I would like to see him lose his position as majority leader. Wouldn't you?

The way McConnell treated Obama is unspeakable...If we can take him down, that will be worth it.

What is your point of view on this.? I gave you mine. What do you think?

Let's say 2 and 1/2 million votes were screwd up in the last presidential election..

Now, I know they weren't but, lets just say they were for this discussion....

That would mean over...60,000,000 people voted for this idiot, liar, buffoon

How can that be?
........ Couldn't they see that this guy was an idiot, liar and buffoon? What was going on? Looking back, it is unbelievable than there are that many stupid, idiotic, uncaring people in this country. Couldn't they see this guy was/is a grabber of "women's private parts"..? He admitted it ahead of time. He didn't respect women, or anyone?
You tell me..I can't believe all of this.. Please exuse the reference, but that is what he admitted.. Again, you tell me...........thank you

Why tarriffs now?

Simple. It is an obvious distraction away from the Stormy matter, and the Muller investigation. The idiot doesn't have a clue as to what increased tariffs will do. He thinks it can save jobs. But if there is a world wide recession as a result of the idiot's decision, then the number of jobs lost will be enormous in comparison to what might be lost due to "competition that exists now." Further, if the stock market goes down 10 per cent..(no one knows) the result could also be a recession or worse.

Idiot doesn't realize that the economy is now in a very strong economic condition. Low unemployment, good wages, profits very good, lots of buying of goods. Why would anyone want to change that?.. Taking the country's view away from Trump's problems, and focusing on the tariffs, could be one of the most selfish things the idiot has ever done. It is all about him. The country is doing fine. Why mess with that? Because Trump is an idiot. Tomorrows stock market could make today look like a very small storm, compared to a killer tornado. I sure hope I am wrong about that.

Snow in Washington DC..3/21/18...predicted 10 inches of snow???

Just a note for fans of snow. Today the temperature is about 30 degrees. Tomorrow the temperature in Washington DC is supposed to be 45 degrees and sunny. Mid 40s for the next few days, and sunny. So, even if there is lots of snow, all of it will be melted in a few days.

People in DC are pretty strong. They have put up with some tough problems in the past year. They can live through some snow and the melting of the snow. Don't you think?
