If I am this stressed out about a special election for a 9-month seat 2,000 miles away from me...

...I am going to be a wreck on Nov. 06. Just sayin'

And for those of you who are going to tell me that I should focus my angst productively, don't worry. I'm a volunteer on team Rosen here in NV. We get started on turning a red senate seat blue this Saturday

Proposed President Trump highway turns into a dead end as Utah Rep. Mike Noel drops bill

Source: Salt Lake Tribune

By Courtney Tanner

State Rep. Mike Noel has dropped his controversial proposal to name a southern Utah highway after President Donald Trump, insisting he had “enough votes to pass this bill” but was worn down by personal attacks.

“If you say nice things about the president, you are somehow a despicable person,” the Republican lawmaker said Wednesday less than a week after introducing the legislation.

Noel wanted to rename the existing Utah National Parks Highway to honor Trump for being “a supporter of public lands” and downsizing two national monuments at the request of the state’s Republican leaders. But his plan met swift backlash.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, for one, called it “a little premature.” Democratic Sen. Jim Dabakis vowed to mockingly amend HB481 to name the frontage road “Stormy Daniels rampway” in reference to the adult film star who allegedly had an affair with Trump. Navajo Nation leaders suggested it was “vengeful” and “hostile.”

Russian model in Thai jail promises to spill Trump-Russia secrets

Source: CNN

(CNN)A self-described Russian "seductress" is asking for US help to escape a "Thai prison" in exchange for information on alleged links between US President Donald Trump and Russia, according to her Instagram account.

Anastasia Vashukevich, who also goes by the name Nastya Rybka, says she's being held in Thailand after being arrested on February 26, along with nine other Russians, in the city of Pattaya for running so-called "sex training" sessions. Rybka has said she's from Belarus but entered Thailand on a Russian passport, a Thai immigration official told CNN.

While on the way to prison in Pattaya, Rybka published a video on her Instagram account begging US journalists to help her.
"I'm ready to give you all the missing puzzle pieces, support them with videos and audios, regarding the connections of our respected lawmakers with Trump, Manafort and the rest. I know a lot. I'm waiting for your offers and I'm waiting for you in a Thai prison," she said.

Rybka has come under the spotlight in recent weeks after the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny published an investigation earlier this month on his anti-corruption foundation website into her connections with some of Russia's richest and most powerful men.

Songs that Advocate for Gun Control...Please add your own.

This song came up during an iPod shuffle the other day. This is from 1984!! And it's from a British band basically telling us Americans how idiotic we are about guns. Again, this was 1984. Consider what Freddie would make of us now!!



One other; this is back in 1975 when even Southern Hill Williamses supported common-sense gun restrictions:



Others?

Utahs Mia Love, the only Haitian-American in Congress, says Trump should apologize

Utah’s Mia Love, the only Haitian-American in Congress, says Trump should apologize for his ‘s---hole’ comment

Washington • Rep. Mia Love, a Utah Republican and the only Haitian-American in Congress, called on President Donald Trump to apologize Thursday after reports said he questioned why the United States was allowing immigrants from “s---hole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

“The president’[s] comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values,” Love said in a statement, noting that her parents, Mary and Jean Maxime Bourdeau, emigrated from Haiti and made their home in America. “This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation.”

Her parents, she said, took an oath to their adopted country and “took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with.”

“They never took a thing from our federal government,” she added. “They worked hard, paid taxes, and rose from nothing to take care of and provide opportunities for their children. They taught their children to do the same. That’s the American Dream. The president must apologize to both the American people and the nations he so wantonly maligned.”
