Pittsburgh : Represent!

James Comey: "I will not vote for another Republican..."


James Comey: VOTE in 3 days: “I will not vote for another Republican until Trump is out of office.” My independent-voter wife to a Republican pollster who randomly called our house.

Comey says in his book "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership" that he isn't a member of any political party and normally didn't vote while serving in the FBI. Now that he's "retired" that may have changed.

Here's a good joke to tell your MAGA friends

While walking down the street a Republican Senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to Heaven, Senator" says St. Peter. "Before you settle in it seems there is a problem. We seldom see an important Republican around these parts, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really? I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the Senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne. Also present is the devil who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit Heaven."

So the Senator joins a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time, and soon he realizes the time's up and St. Peter returns.

"Well then you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity."

The Senator reflects for a minute before he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil smiles at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted."

Multiple people are dead and several wounded — including four police officers — after a mass shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood Saturday morning.

The shooter is in custody, Pittsburgh Police report. Gunfire erupted as a service was getting underway during a baby-naming ceremony.

“It sounded like a loud crash in the hallway,” said Stephen Weiss of Squirrel Hill, who was in Tree of Life services Saturday morning. Services were scheduled from 9:45 a.m. to noon.

As Mr. Weiss was running through the building, he heard loud, repeated gunfire that he said sounded like an automatic weapon. He ran to the basement and found the congregation holding services there sheltering in place. He then went back up to the main chapel and left the building, he said.

Trump calls aftermath of Khashoggi killing 'worst cover-up ever'

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the effort to conceal the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate in Turkey was the "worst cover-up ever."

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump declined to preview what the U.S. would do in response to Khashoggi's death by Saudi operatives. But he was clear in his view that the operation and its aftermath demonstrated incompetence.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly, and the cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups," he said. "They had the worst-cover up ever."

Shortly after Trump spoke, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. would punish certain Saudis who have been connected to the killing.

LWV provides online voter's guides for every PA district

This new website Vote411.org is the most complete compilation of voting info I've ever seen!

Link: https://www.vote411.org/

The link takes you to the opening page where you enter your address, city, state and zip code. The database finds your district and precinct, and then it displays every candidate that will appear on your ballot. This is not for actual voting, but merely to provide you with comparable info about each candidate. We should be informed first before going to vote!

Another service they provide is to email your selections (if you wish) or text them so they're handy when you need them. It's completely voluntary and no records are kept by the League of Women Voters. Or you have the option to simply print the page if you want and create your own record.

One thing I noticed is that this covers the candidates only, not the local/county/state resolutions where voters would voted yes or no.

This is an awesome website that organizes a lot of information that voters NEED and is often hard to find!

Good advice to women (and men) to avoid sexual attackers

Public Service Announcement - OCTOBER

Here's a great idea for Halloween costume

I think this would only work for a tallish man (or older teen) though. It wouldn't work for children whose legs are too short. Probably need some sewing skills to pull this off, but it would definitely be the hit of your Halloween party!
