I Have Made a Discovery that I Have Known for A While, but Today. I Realized it was Important History!

Many at Democratic Underground have seen the exact same thing as I did, but there has not been a
discussion about this realization that I can remember....(Likely there was a discussion, but I either wasn't here that day
or, I don't remember it... My realization is below:
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _ Some Science Fiction Has Become Total Science Fact, Science Fiction in 50s is now TOTAL FACT."...
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
For example, Mr. Spock has a computer and calls the captain on it...It is held in his hand.
Yes..................We have computers we can hold in our hands now......Yes, I lived to see that change.

................In the 50s when I grew up, holding a computer was a ..........."Pipe Dream!"..........ALSO..............
.................Computers were Pipe Dreams... and When people described what computers would be like in the 60s,
computers were described as being as big as being as big as a "Full Room."...........and all the parts
would take up all the space in that "Full Room".
.................Now almost everyone has one or has access to one....(and they computers are held in ONE HAND)

WAIT, DON'T TELL ME, BUT AM I USING A COMPUTER RIGHT NOW? (at this very moment?)
I think so.

Was it SCIENCE FICTION in the 50s that cars would have TVs and Phones inside of them?

Was it SCIENCE FICTION in the 50s that phones (cell phones) have computers inside of them

(Please add other ideas to this post if you want to.)

Legal Experts See Uphill Battle For Trump in Fraud Case: BBC

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-67366022

On Monday Mr Trump's defence team will begin presenting their side, calling the former president's oldest son back to the stand as their first witness. But legal analysts told the BBC that after two damaging weeks of testimony from members of the Trump family, salvaging their case now will be a herculean task.

"It's been a disaster from a legal perspective," said Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor and president of West Coast Trial Lawyers.

He believes that Mr Trump is "going to lose this case, and lose badly".

In a worst-case scenario for Mr Trump, Judge Arthur Engoron could bar him and his fellow defendants from doing business in New York, and issue fines of at least $250m (£204m) in penalties.

Perhaps the most harmful of all the testimony came from Mr Trump himself. When he took the stand on Monday, he called New York Attorney General Letitia James a "political hack", declared the case "a disgrace" and personally attacked Judge Engoron.

What is your favorite movie "Of All Time?" ..Mine is: "It's A Wonderful Life " and here is the plot:

George Bailey has so many problems he is thinking about ending it all - and it's Christmas! As the angels discuss George, we see his life in flashback. As George is about to jump from a bridge, he ends up rescuing his guardian angel, Clarence - who then shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn't been for all his good deeds over the years................

The movie is about the problems that Bailey has are minor compared to ...."what his town would look like for all his good deeds
over the years." Jimmy Stewart played Baily. One of his most important roles, and another Jimmy Stewart film that I love is: "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington."

The messages are exactly the same for both movies. " That decency and honesty are very important and that a single person can make a difference."

Very important comment on the election and the next election in 2024.............!!!!

Donald Trump is our best "Election Turner Outer."

Everything he touches turns immediately to......Stinking Horse Shit.......
He can't shut up, but he doesn't know the facts..

Jack Smith and Fani Willis are "In Charge" of getting Donald Trump. And Jack & Fani will get him."

There are those in charge of getting Trump convicted with immense power and we all know that. If you don't think that Jack Smith wants to get him, you don't know how prosecutors work. The prosecutor in Georgia, Fani Willis, also wants to get Mr. Trump. He lied about his property valuations in order to pay less taxes. What else is there?

You and I are watching a major league game, where the worst team in the league is playing the "World Championship Team" that has the best pitcher that ever lived pitching this day. Along with the best pitcher that team also has the best 4 hitters that ever lived hitting in order....... And the best home run hitter currently in the major leagues is batting 4th.

Against a team that drops the ball and causes error after error many times a game. That drop ball team has not won a game in weeks. Who is going to win this game?
The "drop the ball team" Are you kidding me? Donald Trump hasn't got a chance either.

You and I who are watching the game, and we know that Trump is a crook. And the prosecutors
have proof that he is a crook. It is not complicated: and we know the end of the game already. Don't We?
This is like a "James Bond Movie" (an early movie) We know who wins in the end? Don't We?
