19 Oct 17: Seems to me that the news that the FBI uncovered a bribery plot involving the Clinton Foundation, the Russians, 145 million dollars and ownership of 20 percent of the US uranium supply BEFORE the Obama administration approved the uranium deal ought to be a fairly big story. Not so: ABC, CBS and NBC have all totally ignored the story on their morning and evening shows since the story broke on Tuesday.

-------

17 Oct 17: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, along with other Democrats is outraged at President's Trumps "sabotage" of Obamacare; in particular with regard to ending the illegal payments to the health insurance companies. So Nancy, maybe you should have read the bill BEFORE passing it so you would have known what was in it....and what was not in it. Notably missing was the appropriation for those payments, which a federal court has since ruled are illegal. If anyone is responsible for sabotaging Obamacare, it's you and your colleagues, Nancy, for passing such a flawed bill in the first place.

-------

14 Oct 17: The left is up in arms over President Trump's decision to stop the illegal subsidy payments to health insurance comopanies. They are illegal because, alhough authorized in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), there was never an appropriation for those payments by Congress. President Obama was sued when he started making the payments and a federal court ruled the payments unconstitutional. Now we have 20 state attorneys  general suing Trump for stopping the payment. In effect they are suing to continue an illegal program! How warped our law experts have become.

-------

14 Oct 17: And then there is always Hillary to muse about. Did you see or read about her interview on the BBC the other day? When asked about the Harvey Weinstein matter, she commented that the problem could be seen in politics as well as Hollywood, considering "there is an admitted sexual predator in the Whire House." The interviewer asked her about Bill's sexcapades and she brushed that off with a wave of her hand, saying that was all in the past. And just think, there are rumors that this sick woman is being considered for an assistant professorship at Columbia. She should fit in quite well there.

-------

12 Oct 17: So finally Hillary is "shocked and appalled" about the revelations of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's preying on women for decades. Weinstein over the years has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats, including Hillary. So Hillary says she's going to donate any money she received from Weinstein to charity. Hmmm, might that charity be the Clinton Foundation?

-------

10 Oct 17: Hollywood liberals, usually so quick to pounce on any perceived slight against women, had been pretty tolerant and silent about the sexual predator otherwise known as Harvey Weinstein. Finally enough women, including some pretty well-known actresses, broke the silence and started talking about his sordid history. Most, however, claim they had never heard about it. Yeah right! And then there is Hillary, who finally after five days since the Weinstein story broke said she was shocked and appalled. Gee - her husband was guilty of the same behavior!

-------

10 Oct 17: So since the beginning of the current NFL season, liberals are all for players who disrespect out anthem and flag. NFL owners, in an effort to appease the left and its media, have tolerated these protests. But, surprise....money trumps all. In the face of rapidly declining fan support, two team owners came out recently and issued statements that if players want to play, then they will be present on the field during the anthem and showing proper respect. And just today NFL commissioner Roger Goodell issued policy to all teams that players be present and respectful.

-------

5 Oct 17: The liberal broadcast media is missing a great opportunity to influence viewers on the subject of gun control. Instead of focusing all its coverage on the shooter, it should take 15-20 minutes of every hour to profile a victim. Tell us how he or she died in the arms of a loved one and talk to the survivors. That would do far more to demonstrate the impact of these outrageous attacks on innocent people. The shooter ought to remain anonymous - don't give him the "fame" that he was seeking.

-------

4 Oct 17: NBC has reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was on the verge of resigning this summer and that he called President Trump a moron. Tillerson denies the story, but NBC persists, saying that it has three witnesses. OK, tell us who the three witnesses are and let us hear it from them directly. More and more often these days, "anonymous sources" = "fake news".

-------

4 Oct 17: I am so very sad - tears in my eyes. High school sweethearts Jenny and Bobby loved country music. and were at the Las Vegas concert. Bobby thought Jenny had fainted when she fell. He covered her with his body, she died in his arms. Jack and Laurie were celebrating their 23rd anniversary at the Vegas concert. Jack pushed Laurie to the ground and laid atop her to protect her. He was hit, he died in her arms. Kody and Michelle had just met minutes before and went to the concert together. She was hit and Kody threw himself atop her to shield her from more bullets. He helped carry her out. He managed to find her cell phone and notified her family. He found her at a hospital, only to be told she had died. He kept in contact with her family and met them when they arrived in Vegas. Just three of the many tragic stories stemmig from the acts of a madman. How do we stop this?

-------

3 Oct 17: A tweet from Hayley Geftman-Gold, A CBS vice-president and chief counsel: “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”

To CBS's credit, they didn't waste any time in firing her. Things like this really make one wonder how Twitter manages to turn supposedly smart people into completely stupid fools.

-------

2 Oct 17: Have you ever noticed how well you can hum a song silently in your hear head and it "sounds" perfect? But, oh boy, when I try to do the same thing out loud, what a disaster! Guess it's a good things we have excellent imaginations.
