    It is the little things that tell me the long term outlook for the Republican Party and the country is doubtful. My fellow Republicans are stupid, really stupid. I am listening to last night's Trump rally and I am disgusted. When Trump talks about trade and bringing back manufacturing THE REPUBLICANS IN ATTENDANCE REMAIN SILENT. Shame on Republicans. Shame.

    Although he died some two millennia ago and there is no evidence he ever visited Westmoreland County, Jesus Christ garnered support Tuesday to serve on North Irwin council. The 33 write-in ballots cast included single votes for Porky Pig, “My Left Foot” (the name of a 1989 film starring Daniel Day-Lewis), Somebody With A Brain and Jesus H. Christ — though the Bible never indicates that Jesus had a middle name. But, just like the Bible, “Jesus H. Christ” will be marked down for posterity in the county’s election records, said Beth Lechman, director of the county’s election bureau. Because...

    House Democrats on Thursday launched a marathon 12-hour public reading of Robert Mueller's redacted report in an effort to bring attention to the special counsel's findings as Democrats battle with the Trump administration over investigations into Mueller's conclusions, President Donald Trump's finances and a range of administration policies and actions. **SNIP** "The American people need to hear from the report itself," Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-Penn., a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Thursday. "Summaries won't do." Even as they read from the publicly-released report, Democrats have continued to press for access to more information.

    Tampa Bay Times ^ | Sept 18, 2015 | Alex Leary
    In this anti-establishment time, Jeb Bush is branding himself as a “disrupter.” He has been increasingly using that word in the context of his Tallahassee record and how he would shake up Washington. “People know that we need principle-centered leadership, a disrupter to go to Washington, D.C. The one guy that had some special interests that I know of that tried to get me to change my views on something -- that was generous and gave me money -- was Donald Trump. He wanted casino gambling in Florida …” Bush again pressed the word during an interview Thursday with Sean...

    From: Obama) Date: Thu, Sep 4, 2008, 8:36pm (PDT+3) To: DELETED BY ME Subject: The attacks King Vanity Why would the Republicans spend a whole night of their convention attacking ordinary people? With the nation watching, the Republicans mocked, dismissed, and actually laughed out loud at Americans who engage in community service and organizing. Our convention was different. We gave the stage to everyday Americans who hunger for change and stepped up to make phone calls, knock on doors, and raise money in small amounts in their communities. You may have missed it, but we also showed the country a...

    Possum breaks record with year-long snooze 14 October 2007 news service A possum has set an enviable record for doing absolutely nothing. After stuffing itself full of food in a laboratory, one curled up and hibernated for a record 367 days. Some mammals, such as ground squirrels, hibernate for up to six months through winter, while a western jumping mouse (Zapus princeps) once hibernated for 320 days in a lab. That record has now been smashed by an Australian eastern pygmy possum (Cercartetus nanus) in Fritz Geiser's lab at the University of New England in Armidale, New South Wales...

No pennies for your thoughts, just better late than never because your beating a dead horse beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    U.S. gov't responsible for Afghan riots Adam Zebelian In an almost recession-like period in political news: It's hard to find anything to spark your interest. Cable news channels insist on continuing with mundane stories such as "the runaway bride" and the Michael Jackson trial. It can leave a political junkie asking for more. But there is one newsworthy story that really hasn't had the coverage it deserves - big surprise there. If you're not a psychotic bride-to-be with an overactive thyroid that causes your eyes to bug out, why should anyone pay attention to you? Well, beyond the fluff, there...

    WHEN true artists look back on their careers, they inevitably do so with a sense of romanticism: the journey is usually long and every moment is worth relishing. In celebration of her 25 years in theater, Monique Wilson recently starred in a concert that reflected on her own journey, which began in 1980 when she was 9, with Repertory Philippines. The little girl Monique dreamed, believed and persevered. On Saturday evening, she narrated the years that came between those days of dreaming and her present reality. The night of musical remembrances began with "When You Wish Upon A Star" (from...

    Tact needed With North Korea boasting 'nukes,' the United States must act with caution, pursue peace North Korea is upset, and the United States needs to do something to repair our relationship with the country, regardless of who is right. It's time for the United States to get down on its knees because, in the nuclear-weapon relationship game, you can't just make up later. With North Korea publicly boasting on Thursday that it has "nukes," and with peace talks nonexistent, we need to give up the stubborn, tough guy act and start playing to North Korea's interests. That means first...

    Many of you may have seen this already but it can't be said enough or repeated enough. This is not very long, and very informative. You have to read the catalogue of events in this brief piece. Then, ask yourself how anyone can take the position that all we have to do is bring our troops home from Iraq, sit back, reset the snooze alarm, go back to sleep, and no one will ever bother us again. In case you missed it, World War III began in November 1979... that alarm has been ringing for years. US Navy Captain Ouimette...

    HELSINKI (Reuters) - One in four Europeans has fallen asleep in the workplace, with the Irish leading the pack and the Dutch able to stifle their yawns best, according to a survey. "Long workdays, routine tasks, meetings that drag on, and staring into the monitor are prompting workers around Europe to fall asleep at their workplace," one of the survey's co-authors, Internet jobs site Jobline, said in a statement on Monday. The poll showed 24 percent of respondents had fallen asleep either at their desk, in a meeting or in the toilet. Thirty-nine percent said they had not fallen asleep...

    Most of Sea-Tac Airport had to be evacuated Sunday morning because a security screener fell asleep at his post. Bob Partker, a spokesman for the Port of Seattle, said the screener was supposed to be watching the shuttle trains that move passengers between terminals. The screener's job is to make sure nobody gets off a train, then back on. But just before 7 a.m. the screener was found to have been asleep for at least eight minutes and possibly as long as a half hour. All concourses except one were evacuated and everybody had to go back through security checkpoints...
