Trump gives troops a thumb in the eye from afar.

I can only imagine how troops on the ground must feel after hearing such comments from their Commander and Chief. A recent Washington Post article reveals that:

"Although he signed off on Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’s requests to bolster the American military presence in Afghanistan and Syria and retain the footprint in Iraq, Trump isn’t a fan of U.S. military operations there.

In meetings about a potential visit, he has described the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan as “a total shame,” according to the advisers."

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized With 3 Broken Ribs

Edited to reference this earlier post: https://democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=2196904

This scares the hell out of me.

Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-hospitalized-with-fractured-ribs/2018/11/08/65c48a04-e360-11e8-8f5f-a55347f48762_story.html?utm_term=.8c364c68fcfb

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was hospitalized early Thursday morning after fracturing three ribs during a fall in her office Wednesday night, the court said.

Ginsburg, 85, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital early this morning for observation and treatment.

A statement from the court said that Ginsburg returned home Wednesday night but went to the hospital early Thursday after “experiencing discomfort overnight.” She called court police to take her there before dawn.

I'm not a praying man, but if ever I could send well wishes to someone she's getting them.

Ballot receipt! Gotta love it!

I love getting this little notice every election after my mail-in ballot has been counted:

Hello [Onebro],

Your ballot for the November 2018 General Election has been accepted and will be counted. Get your special Oregon "I Voted" virtual sticker bit.ly/multcoivoted If you have any questions call 503-988-3720.

Visit www.mcelections.org for more election information.



Actually, I get an email notice telling me my ballot has been mailed to me. Then, after I complete my ballot and return it to the election office, I get a second email notice telling me it has been received (but not yet verified); THEN I get a third and final notice (above) telling me my ballot has been accepted.

I love it!
