Tweety is interviewing Donna Brazille right now.

She stated that the 2016 election was not legitimate...agreeing with HRC.

On a lighter note, her hair is bright purple! Mine's bright red so I'm not criticizing...it's just interesting!

Under the radar credit reporting agency!

So my 78 year old mother in law recently subscribed to Dish Network for television services. She got a letter today from Dish thanking her for her business but darn it, they could not give her their best monthly rate because of her credit score. Here's the kicker, she has a credit score of 817! So what the heck? Well, Dish was referring to her credit score through the NCTUE - National Consumer Telecom & Utilities Exchange. https://www.nctue.com/

NCTUE is a membership of companies that provide services (telecommunication, pay TV and utilities) and report and share data relative to their customers’ accounts - including your SSN. My mother in law didn't get Dish Network's best rate because she had little or no credit history with the NCTUE. This is largely because she doesn't manage her own cell phone account (her kids do that) and doesn't use pay per view services and while she does have internet through Century Link, prior to signing up with Dish, she didn't have TV at her home. Because she isn't a consumer of much media, they are dinging her on her monthly rate. She's fuming and so am I on her behalf.

You may call the NCTUE and request your credit report and score which my accountant recommended and you can also freeze your account. I requested mine today and will look for errors prior to freezing it as I have all my reports. The NCTUE is housed and managed by.....wait for it...EQUIFAX.

How Much Religeon Should Be Discussed In Our Public Schools?

So, my 7th grader comes home from school yesterday with a homework sheet assigned by his Social Studies teacher. It is a crossword puzzle to be filled in with facts about the Church In Medieval Europe. My son proceeded to read some of the questions from the puzzle and I must say I was surprised at the content of the assignment. Some of the questions were:

-Person who oversaw the archdioceses?
-Who is second to the Pope?
-What is solemn rite of Christian churches?
-The study of God and religious truth?
-What is the celebration of Christ's Resurrection?
-Famous Italian saint who helped the poor?
-Number of sacraments?
-First important sacrament?

You get the drift of this thing. As a former Catholic, I'm a bit nerved up that my kid is learning this stuff in public school. I don't know if they will also be exposed to Islam or Judaism too or just Christian history and facts? Am I overreacting? Should I let this go? I plan to call his teacher and ask these questions, however, I'm asking for feedback from DUers on this. Any suggestions for additional questions for the teacher?

Thanks! This kept me up last night...

Havre Couple Running In Opposite Senate Primaries

This two people (allegedly married) are running against each other for Jon Tester's Senate seat. I found myself gasping numerous times as I read this article. Seems crazy con schemes are the norm in politics these days. Be very careful my fellow Montanans!


Facebook Down: Site and App Fail To Load Amid Major Crash

Facebook has completely broken for its users around the world.

Wonder if it is just a glitch in their system network or something bigger? I don't use FB personally, just to market our business. Guess I won't be doing that today and I'm kind of relieved! Mama might get to go home early!

Never ending genius.

We lost so much when he left us.

President Obama to receive Kennedy Library 'Profiles In Courage' Award this Sunday.

It is worth noting that the Rancid Slice of Velveeta in the Oval Office will NEVER be considered for such an honor. Take a listen to young Jack Schlossberg in this video. I'm hopeful he has a bright future ahead of him in public service.


Kellyanne ConJob banned from Morning Joe

I'm surprised MJ was one of the first to ban Gutter Wench Barbie. Couldn't happen to a nicer gal! I thought Spicey would be the next on chopping block but No Credibility Conway might be moving up in the countdown.
