Making History

I am cautiously hopeful, but it seems like peace is breaking out all over.

    And of course the left won’t give Trump an ounce of credit for this.

  3. Dora says:

    History was made last night any I haven’t seen anything about it on television. We can be sure that if obama was president, there would be nothing else on the screen!

    Well, this will keep the Koreas out of the news. :eyeroll:

      And the Me Too! ‘ers thought they were going to take out the Republicans and Trump. Who is next? Bill Moyers and the PBS crowd of self-righteous jerks?

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’ve noticed a lot of people pushing Juanita Broaddrick and the other Clinton victims to push for a class action suit against Bubba. She’s been at it since ’92 when we were told Bill’s sex life was none of our business. Now that everybody’s sex life has become fodder for our news “entertainment”, Clinton would bring yuuuuuge ratings 😉

        • mothy2017 says:

          Hillary’s sell by date has long passed. She is of no use to proggies. She is more of an albatross at this point. She is never going to shut up. EVER. Perhaps a trial would occupy her.

        • mcnorman says:

          I think that would be swell. Imagine raiding Chelsea’s CGI nest egg…winning.

        • Jadzia says:

          Juanita Broaddrick’s case is really old, but I would bet that any Bill victims after the creation of the Clinton Foundation might have claims against the entity. I can’t imagine that old dog changed his spots when he left the White House, and I doubt he was interested in making payoffs out of his own checking account.

          Speculation is still encouraged here, right?

    He wants to be ‘Community Organizer of the World”. Or maybe he’d like to be “Secretary General of the UN”. That’s a thought. A horrible one, but a thought.

    No longer in a position to inflict heavy damage on the USA, Barack Obama has taken his community organizing act to Africa:

    Let’s hope this ends before it begins.


    Why a ‘federal jobs guarantee’ is gaining steam with Democrats

    CNN)Emboldened by a base thirsty for bold new initiatives, ambitious Democrats have spent large chunks of the Trump era building and working out how to sell a slate of unapologetically progressive policy programs.

    • elliesmom says:

      Do I understand this? We’re going to pay people who lack the skills or the initiative to find a job in a time when unemployment is low to do a made-up government job? Around $32,000/year? Given the havoc this could wreak on the rest of us, it might be better to pay them to stay home.

    • Constance says:

      This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. But it’s going to sound good to young people who borrow their way through college then can’t find jobs.

      a really good of example of not know what day it is

        Sheila is well known for selective hearing and memory. She earned a B.A. in political science from Yale University in 1972, followed by a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1975. This is affirmative action at its best. She is truly a blight on Texas.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham: Trump deserves Nobel Peace Prize if Koreas follow through on peace

    • helenk3 says:

      was he grinding his teeth when he said it? After the knife in the back of this president and future presidents that he signed yesterday? Where he signed a motion to take away a presidential right to hire and fire when needed.
      It will be remembered

    • SHV says:

      “it’s going to be difficult for the smug, self-important Eurotrash running that thing to deny Trump that prize.”
      But they and US Dems/MSM will figure out a way to dot it.

        But of course “they” will!
        What is more important than Russia, Russia, Russia, Stormy, Stormy, Stormy, Comey, Comey, Comey and Dr. Jackson.?

      • DeniseVB says:

        It will probably go to the Hogglett students, y’know, peace and children and stuff. The Nobel’s been long tarnished since they gave it to Obama.

    • Cisco says:

      Folks, give this a read.
      Just a little tidbit.
      “nations were defined by ideology, as democracy and communism competed for allegiance around the world. During that age, a relatively non-ideological, nonintellectual man like Trump might have had trouble understanding the thinking animating Russian and Chinese communists, hampering his ability to confront them. But with realpolitik and raw ambition supreme, Trump is the man for this current age of crisis.”

      Art of the Deal. 😀

    • Constance says:

      Oh yeah very, nasty women who basically refused to work with me! I took 14 years off to be a stay at home Mom and of course I had volunteer jobs and picked up van loads of kids to take them from school to activities because their parents “worked”. So then I tried to go back to work, I thought other women would give me a break. No way! I found one woman who helped and she basically re-wrote my resume to hide the employment gap, the only people who gave me a break were religious Christian and Jewish men. When I finally got a job I asked “how did you pick me out of your 100 applicants” He said “you can clearly do the job, you have kids to put through school, you’ve been married 15 years so I don’t think you are going to follow a man to Alaska and you are grateful for the job”. Thank God he noticed.

      • Somebody says:

        I doubt I’ll ever get another job again, I have an even bigger gap. I haven’t worked outside the home since 1982. During that time I’ve not only raised my kids and now my grandkids, but I’ve cared for 5 elderly relatives and of course one child with cancer. I’ve been on all sorts of committees from local to regional level dealing with school matters, HOA, zoning, transportation, even our local PBS. I’ve been the chair of most of them……but an employer will only see a 36 year black hole.

        When I decided to stay home it made sense for the kids and our marriage. Hubby made a good enough income and with his crazy shifts it made home life easier. I always thought once the kids were old enough I’d go back to work, HA! Not only did I have a late in life baby, but it seemed relatives had formed a queue for me to take care of them. I doubt I’ll ever go back to work, although I would like to earn the rest of my SS quarters.

        • elliesmom says:

          I was working at a fancy fabric store to ease back into getting up and going to work everyday. The owner didn’t want “part-timers”, but he agreed to let two of us share a job as long we worked out our own schedule, and one of us always showed up. We’d been doing it for about a year, and the owner was completely sold on the idea. Then one morning as I was getting ready for work, I got a teary phone call from one of my former Girl Scouts. She had taken a job in the HR department of a computer start-up. Her job currently included answering the switchboard. The company was having a week long planning meeting. She was told she could participate if she could hire a temp to do the phone part of her job. She did, but the temp hadn’t shown up. She wanted to be taken seriously, and here she was stuck on the phone instead of in the meeting. She was wondering if I could possibly register with the agency and come into work the next day. While I was there, she’d try to get another temp, but she didn’t want to risk failure two days in a row.

          I called my other half at work, and she agreed to take my hours the next day. So I put on my best business clothes and showed up at the computer company. Everything went very well until my young friend told her boss she was calling to get a new temp. He wanted to know what was wrong with the one she already had? So she asked me if I could finish the week. My other half at work was delighted. I was making more money, and the job I was doing was turning out to be fun.

          On Thursday, the Vice President of Planning and Operations bought me lunch. My friend had confessed to him I was there to bail her out, and that I was an engineer, not a switchboard operator. He offered me a job in his department. He wasn’t sure just yet what it would be, but for now he was going to have me hired into HR to help staff his department. When the two of us saw a job that was right for me, it was mine. I asked him what had prompted him to make this offer? He said he had been told I had secured a replacement for myself at my other job, arranged for after school daycare for my youngest, interviewed and registered with the temp agency, and shown up on time for work looking very professional. He was also aware I had never operated a switchboard before, and I had not dropped a single call. He said he had never thought that one of the qualifications for working in his department should be “busy mom”, but it was definitely an asset.

          Within a month I was running a computer department with a 15 million dollar equipment budget in a small company that was actually part of what was then the 9th largest company in the world. So, Somebody, never say never. Just look for the doors that are open, even if just a crack. 😉

        • Constance says:

          Have a pro write your resume. In desperation I started calling HR departments asking if they could meet with me to tell me what my problems were and help me get call backs. One woman HR manager who was about 30 met with me. She marked up my resume and told me it doesn’t matter how old you are it matters if you look current. I got a new job interview outfit (which I would never have picked out, the lady at Nordstrom picked it), new hair cut and glasses (also not my choices). I then got 3 interviews and two job offers in the next 2 weeks.

      • Jadzia says:

        That’s crazy. I recently hired somebody and would’ve taken somebody like you in a minute. That said, it took me 20 years in this profession to finally land in a working environment that is not dysfunctional and that makes me happy.

    it is a good day in the country. Maybe now we will have some judges who understand the law

    • elliesmom says:

      It’s been a rough week at Ellie’s house. Last night the car battery died at the local CVS. I had left my AAA card at home, but more than one friend rushed to our rescue. Lots of hugs. I was starting to feel better. Then I lay down to go to sleep, but it just wasn’t coming. “Think happy thoughts. Think happy thoughts.” Then I remembered Melania had used the Clinton plates at her first state dinner, and I fell asleep with a smile on my face.

  21. Anthony says:

    No, I’m not getting all religious and shit, but one of my caseload asked me about this. It sounds like “The Changeling” was indeed mentioned before he was born on that bridge in Selma ( /s )

    “The antichrist will make a 7 year peace treaty with Israel. Half way through he will break the treaty and persecute Israel. At the end of the 7 years Jesus will return and defeat the antichrist and his armies, casting the antichrist and his false prophet into the lake of fire.”

  22. helenk3 says:

    I did not know this was going on. All I ever heard about was the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Guess this did not fit the narrative

  23. swanspirit says:

    If you think RD is crazy, and she is, check out this descent into pure madness over at Baboons Juiice.
    John Cole has led his pack of ischial callosity scratching, grunting baboons, down the trail of derangement and dementedness, and they live there now.

    The text of the Joint Declaration is here. One of the South Korean outlets had a nice summary, but they’ve dropped it in favor of the full text. There is a lot here, and every word requires interpretation.

    But you can guess who isn’t worried about the details.

    The dangerous thing here, of course, is that Trump thinks it’s his bluster that made this happen. That means he will be eager to reimpose the sanctions on Iran and start threatening them with nuclear war. Buckle up.

  24. Dora says:

    It must have killed her to report this.

    • SHV says:

      The possibility of ending a 60+ year long war is getting third rate coverage on MSM sites vs Trump is a POS. I have seen no “background” stories about the Korean (Forgotten) war…I suspect that people younger than 60 know nothing about the Korean war, despite it being perhaps the most vicious modern wars. (Possibly 20-30% of the North Korean population died, as an example)

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’ve been to the Korean Memorial several times, it’s just beautiful….like the VN Wall, to experience it in person gave me chills.

        • lateblum says:

          It is stunning. I really didn’t know about the tribute to the Koran War Vet when I suddenly came upon it. I still get chills when I think of it. And just now seeing the photo had the same effect on me.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Yep. A favorite of mine. Like many of you, had family members that fought in Korea. I actually think the different approaches to the various war memorials on the Mall have synergy. They each come from a different perspective and help your mind create a fuller picture. This one really makes you think about how it was to be in the field and exposed. It is hauntingly beautiful at night and after a fresh snowfall.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        The landings at Inchon were tactically brilliant. The war was effectively over until the Chinese invaded.

    • mcnorman says:

      Sadly, I don’t think it did. She probably had a lot of meds on board though.

    Getting old sucks……two little ones have a serious case of the giggles. So I asked them why they had the giggles and they of course don’t know why. I said, “Oh well, I guess it is better to have the giggles than the wiggles” (I then began to wiggle all over). Then I said, “Oh my goodness, what if you had the giggle-wiggles?” (I then began to wiggle wildly while I giggled)……big mistake! Ouch my left side, it’s better now but for a couple of minutes I thought OH CRAP. I think I’ll be a little less animated in the future.

          I have my good days and my bad days. The past few weeks have been pretty good. The girls have helped me with my flower beds, which I might add are gorgeous! This weekend hubby and I will install the finishing touch……stained glass panels flanking the walkway leading to the front door 🤣 I’m so excited, as are the girls……but I’m a little nervous as to how they’ll hold up to Florida afternoon thunderstorms 😯

          We are also enjoying a sparrow nest and babies in one of my potted plants near my garage door. I need to re-pot them, but promised the girls I wouldn’t destroy the babies home.

    Disgraced James Comey Considers Canceling Book Tour

    James Comey is having a rough start to his book tour, to say the least.

    The book that was supposed to discredit Trump and bring down his presidency for good is turning out to be a total flop.

      Maybe a two for one deal should be made.
