Re: The Disgrace that is Harvey Weinstein

The 2012 movie, The Girl, pretty well covered Hitchcock's obsession with Hedren, how he pursued her and "punished" her when she rebuffed his advances. imdb synopsis of the movie: When Grace Kelly retires from films to marry Prince Rainier Alfred Hitchcock looks for a similar blonde and finds her in ...

Re: President Trump

They simply do not see the things we see because their news source is telling them different things than our news sources. This is the very reason 45 constantly reminds his viewers ...

He's not worried about a deal with Iran. All he cares about is blowing up anything that Obama did. He will bluster and bluff about "replacing" all of Obama's achievements, but I doubt he's given any consideration to actually doing any of the work of replacing anything. He's nothing but a vile, hatef...

This is not an administration that believes that need a cadre of experienced, knowledgeable career State Department employees to negotiate a deal. They think using career personnel is what was wrong with previous governments. All they need is The Donald.

Re: Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands Hurricane Recovery

I am pretty sure the reason only half the country is mad about it is because the other half has been fully and completely conditioned on "they don't pay taxes", which is BS.

Re: The Disgrace that is Harvey Weinstein

I once had an experience with the Chief of Police when I took a job with a city many years ago. Guess which one of us had to leave the job because of it? I'm sure you know which one of us left and which one went on to complete a career and is living on a nice pension.

This is exactly the kind of thing Dems in Congress need to keep doing. Get all this crap on the record. I regret that I won't be around to see for myself how historians write Trump - but I have no doubt that he will be shown for the hateful, divisive demagogue and compulsive liar he is.
