Watch the movie again, those young, handsome men, Robert Redford & Dustin Hoffman

And at the end feel that sense of justice when the "good guys" win. And it was or is a GREAT movie, right!



But then ask yourself, was it all for nothing?

We know there are lots of folks who think the "good guys" actually lost in that one.

We see now what those folks are doing, who they voted for, and just what garbage they now support.

Was it all for nothing?

By the way, Bill and Hillary Clinton have done more for those in need AND this

country than any 1000 people combined, reading this.

The Clinton Foundation pays the Clinton's nothing but helps millions.

The Clinton presidencies accomplished many great things.

Senator Clinton as well.

All of us here or reading this WISH we could accomplish a fraction of what they have, FOR OTHERS.

BTW, what they did with their lives was the EXACT OPPOSITE of the Trump and Kushners of the world.

Just thought I would mention this, now and again.

Like Malcolm Nance said today, Russia changed our vote tallies on election day.

Each precinct reporting totals have to take various numbers, tally them and report a total.

Malcolm mentioned this today.

Myself, KNOWING there are WAY more of us than them, that Hillary did NOT lose those 4 states, I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out how they did it.

Malcolm has figured it out.

It only takes a person in the right position either inside or outside the system. From then on, simple.

I heard him say this today on Steph's show. Makes perfect sense.

I wish I knew if I could AGGRESSIVELY criticize Bernie Sanders

he isnt a Democrat, so I am not sure.

I am sure that if he isnt exposed he will divide the party and we will NOT take back either house.

THAT I am certain of.

When Putin takes over, here is what you can expect.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

PRIVATE land-ownership and political freedom usually go together. But not in Russia, where it is the powers-that-be, not the people, who decide about land. It has always been that way. Before communism, there was a bit of public-spiritedness, a lot of capitalism, even the glimmerings of the rule of law. But land? Russia's rulers, whether tsars, Communists or post-Soviet bureaucrats, have never allowed their people fully to exercise the most fundamental of all property rights.
___________________________________________________________________________________________


If you are rich or upper middle class, be prepared to turn your home and land over to Putin.

Since the collapse of Soviet power in 1991, private land-ownership has been a classic Russian muddle: it exists in theory, not in practice.

While I watch Coats and Rogers do CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS

BY REFUSING to answer, I have to remind myself what our new co presidents, Trump and Putin want.

They WANT deplorables killing liberals in the streets.

They WANT civil unrest like we have not seen since the civil war.

They WANT to piss off real patriots so much that we will REACT.

We have to NOT give them what they so desperately WANT. Not sure what will happen next, Putin is taking over for real and completely. But we cant beat the KGB if we are fighting each other.

This is real folks, very real.

COATS and ROGERS are saying to us the rules and laws do NOT apply to them, they are republicans. So we must measure our response. We cant do what we KNOW they would do to us.

The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central, worth checking out

It was 30 minutes of him sitting at the desk, tearing apart the idiot in chief.

But his piece on how Sweden does black face was also great.
