“It’s no use.” Ruth said, as she came inside the public bathroom after our swim at the local pool.
“You’re STILL ugly, and you always will be!”
I was combing my wet hair out, and her comment stung me to the core. I had only been introduced to Ruth that day…and I was the new ‘girl’ at the adult swim class. I loved to swim, and thought it would be a good thing to join up. Most of the woman, were older than me, and had been swimming at noon, every day in summer, for a good twenty years. She said it with such seriousness, I could only assume that she meant it. Did I take it wrong? No, I told myself, this woman really hates me for some reason.
What did I do wrong?—I thought to myself— I tried so hard to be nice to everyone, introducing myself, and everyone was nice, but this Ruth lady. She looked mean. She talked mean to me—always throwing insults at me. No matter how hard I tried to talk to her, she ignored me or insulted me.
“Oh, that’s just Ruth” said the other women. “She’s just like that.”
One night I was telling my husband, how bad I felt. “Why does she say such mean things? ” I decided to stay away from her. I started to REALLY dislike her. She was sort of the silent leader of the cocoon ladies of the pool.
And then one day, she said to me…”Do you want to read a book?”
Out of the blue. “Sure! I said.” And she brought me the story of Dresden, her home town. How it was during WWII. It was an old book, one that was out of print years ago. From Wikipedia:
The bombing of Dresden was an American and British attack on the city of Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony, that took place in the final months of the Second World War in the European Theatre. In four raids between 13 and 15 February 1945, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and 527 of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city. The bombing and the resulting firestorm destroyed over 1,600 acres (6.5 km2) of the city centre. An estimated 22,700 to 25,000 people were killed. Three more USAAF air raids followed, two occurring on 2 March and 17 April aimed at the city’s railroad marshaling yard and one small raid on 17 April aimed at industrial areas.
After I had read the book, I asked her about it. She went on to describe the day the bombs fell in Dresden. When the allies destroyed the whole city. They had heard the bombs dropping when she and her mother and sister were in the kitchen. Her father worked at the railroad station, loading food and guns for Hitler’s army, so he wasn’t home. They ran out the back door of her house, and when they turned around they watched not only their house go up in flames, but the whole city block. Fire was everywhere. She was 16. She had only the clothes on her back—so they ran, and ran, and she was told to go find her father at the railroad station by her mother. She never saw her mother or sister again.
That was one swim day’s conversation….I couldn’t wait to hear more.
And then she stopped. Like bits and pieces of a puzzle, she left out pieces…her story would stop. As if, the memories were too painful. Later on I learned that she had a friend that roamed with her through the streets, trying to find food… but then, the Russians came in. And every woman they saw, they raped. And they raped you in the most horrible way. Two men would hold on to your arms, and two men would hold your legs, and hold you up against a wall…and take turns. I’m not sure how many times Ruth was raped, but the anger…was still there.
The Russians took her and her girlfriend to a far off Russian prison camp. She said it was in Russia, so she had to walk, and it was cold, and their feet froze, and she had a coat, but no more. She said they were in the prison for a good six months, but they ‘dug’ their way out. Under the dirt. It took them a long time to dig the hole, and they dug it with their fingernails…but they got out and walked back to Dresden to look for her dad.
She found her dad. He was still at the station, but the trains were destroyed.
When they got back to Germany, she said the allies MADE all the German people pick up the dead Jews and carry them to their graves. She had to write all the numbers on all the arms. It was some of the hardest work she had ever done, and she had to do it day after day, she said.
That’s all she said that day…the next day, I asked her about her husband.—Who had died years before.
“How did you two meet?” I asked.
“He just saw me one day…he was an American Soldier, and he was Italian. ”
She told me how far he would come just to see her. Whenever he got a day off, he’d drive out to meet her, and she said she always dressed very proper. She wore white gloves, and her best Sunday dress every time he came.
Her father PUSHED her to marry this young American. Her father wanted her to live in America…so she did.
She lived happily here…had a son, and a grandson. She taught swimming at the local pool. She became an American citizen…but I could tell, at heart…she was still a German. She still thought the Jews caused the war, and she still admired Hitler…go figure. And she was convinced there WAS no god.
Who could blame her? My god. Who could blame her? I’m sure the few things she told me were just the tip of the misery she endured.
After I gave her the book back, she didn’t talk anymore about the war.
She talked about her current boyfriend…and how he had a ranch with horses, and they would stay in the same hotel room and she didn’t care what people thought…they were boyfriend and girlfriend.
I saw them once, drive pass my house. He was in his nineties, and she was driving…and they were just adorable. Ruth was 85. They looked so perfectly cute together, and she talked about him all the time.
As each summer came and went, we started to talk more. We talked about many things, but mostly I just admired her outlook. She walked every single morning, and swam, and belonged to a music group who got together and played each other songs. She kept busy.
They’d learn a new song every week in her music class. Her biggest pride was her $50,000 organ sitting in her living room. Learning to play, “To Dream the Impossible Dream” was a big challenge for her.
The swim ladies don’t keep in touch over the winter, but last winter, I called her before Christmas–bad news: Her boyfriend had died. She had fallen in her home. Got a big gash on her head and broke her arm in three places. When I went to see her, she looked defeated. She couldn’t put up her Christmas tree. It was just too sad. I would have done it for her, but I kept thinking…where is this family of hers? Where is her son?
The death of her boyfriend did what the Russians couldn’t do…break her spirit. After all…she lived alone. So, I went to see her again in March. She sounded so upbeat…she said she was driving again, and going back to her music lessons, and going to parties…she sounded fine. No…she sounded great!
And so, when I’d heard she died in April, and didn’t show up at the first day of adult swim, it was…the feeling that you always get: I should have gone more often to see her…I should have this, I should have that…but now, it’s too late. Oh Ruth.
One of the ladies, (Chloe) who had been her friend for over twenty year came today. She didn’t even know that Ruth had died.
It was the only thing she looked forward to…because she was taking care of her husband who had Alzheimer’s ..but he had bought her a pool pass because he AWAYS remembered, how much she loved to see Ruth. She is…88. She is not going to ride her bike anymore because her doctor told her that older people who break bones, usually die within 6 months….and Ruth just proved the theory now, didn’t she?
You know, we all think life in America is so bad, but Americans have never had to go through what Ruth went through, and what many people are going through right now all over the world.
To hear some idiot complain that some business refused to bake them a cake, or some feminist whining that their company didn’t want to pay for their contraceptives, …it makes you wonder….what in the hell happened to people? Don’t they realize just how good they have it?
I’m so glad God introduced Ruth into my life. She was brave, smart, confident, and lived life as it should be lived…to the fullest each day. Ruth made me appreciate MY life more. What a great gift.
I will miss her. To me, she was a real somebody. She might not have believed in God, but God believed in her, and I was so lucky that he shared her a little bit with me.
I don’t think it has really hit me yet. …you know how that goes.
Now, that painful memory of her calling me “ugly” is now….one of my most favorites of my life. And she was right: Her kind of beauty I could only hope for, and I could never even come close to.
Funny, isn’t it?
Ann Coulter was on fire this week, with her interview with Jorge Ramos. Americans are being brainwashed (what else is new? ) into thinking that if they don’t embrace Mexicans and illegals into our country with open arms they are raciest.
As Ann so vehemently points out…hey…Who asked US if we wanted to turn into Mexico? Nobody. And she is right. Our elites in D.C. are hell bent into making America into Mexico at the bottom all across the country….which means, it is no longer our country. The elites of course will stay in their gilded mansions in the East.
Ann is right to be angry. We should all be standing along beside her in this, but there is not one politician that I can think of that is standing with her.
I couldn’t find the whole interview on Youtube, but you can see it here.
Congratulations MS Coulter! You win the Nobody’s Fool award for the week, for standing up and saying what just about every true-blooded American is feeling.
This is the biggest invasion of another people into another country that has ever happened in history. It means, as Ann points out, the destruction of America.
It’s the “third way” …the “New World Order” and the fact that none of our leaders have bothered to stop it, should make you wonder.
Why do you pay taxes again?
Yes world…She is a Sherman Tank. She is tough. A bulldog of a woman. Don’t believe me? Look at that face. Loretta Lynch, it going to prove that woman can be bad-ass.
Our new Attorney General is going to go after the criminals, not here in the United States but—
…in World Soccer.
Nobody Wonders why she isn’t going after the criminals in the IRS, our veterans administration, our state department, or the White House? And…how about the Clintons?
No…world soccer. THAT’s where the corruption is most dangerous.
By the way…when did the Attorney General’s job become policing the rest of the world?
Loretta…let it be known that international soccer, that subject of corruption that has been on EVERY American’s hearts, minds, and lips, had to be cleaned up. To the Obama administration this is MUCH more important. After all, he really can’t go after ISIS so the next best thing is…soccer.
May 27, 2015 Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department unsealed a 47-count indictment Wednesday morning laden with racketeering, corruption, and conspiracy charges against 14 defendants associated with FIFA, the world soccer association, and international soccer organizations.
“Many of the individuals and organizations we will describe today were entrusted with keeping soccer open and accessible to all,” she said. “They were expected to uphold the rules that keep soccer honest and to protect the integrity of the game. Instead they corrupted the business of worldwide soccer to serve their interests and to enrich themselves.”
“The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted both abroad and here in the United States,” Lynch said in a statement. “It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks. And it has profoundly harmed a multitude of victims, from the youth leagues and developing countries that should benefit from the revenue generated by the commercial rights these organizations hold, to the fans at home and throughout the world whose support for the game makes those rights valuable.”
“corruption that is rampart, systemic, and deep rooted.”
Okay, You can’t make this up. Our new Attorney General is outraged that the youth soccer leagues all over the world have been hurt.
Can I get a vowel here? Are pigs flying in the streets of Pennsylvania Ave? Is April fool’s day now been moved onto our daily calendar? Have predatory worms started talking to Joe Biden?
Did someone find a fish sucking bananas in Lincoln’s bedroom? Is the sun still yellow?
Is it me? Is the suggested fact that soccer children are suffering around the world not quite the same as a veteran dying in the parking lot of a veterans hospital in our own country because nobody would come out and pick him up? Our veterans are dying because the VA is so corrupt, and yet nothing, MS Lynch?
Not to mention, did any of those boys on Wall Street go to jail?
How about prosecuting some of them?
Loretta is concerned that youth international soccer…is in danger. It’s right up there with climate change.
The indictment alleges that marketing executives paid out $150 million in kickbacks and bribes in order to secure rights to major soccer tournaments.
Yes, and HOW many millions in kickbacks did the Clinton’s get just this year alone?
To prove she means business, our new Attorney General told everyone that some of these peoples used his various position in international soccer for “personal gain.”
Is that bacon fat in the kitchen smoking yet?
And just when you think that Al Gore might have real competition in the Ozone Wonderland of Black Rabbit holes, another one of our leaders, FBI Director, James Comey, said, and I quote”
“You will be held accountable for that corruption. Nobody is above or beyond the law.”
Since WHEN does anybody in our government hold anybody accountable for corruption? You CANNOT make this stuff up.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Why didn’t Eric Holder grab this before he left? This is good stuff. I mean, if you want to get points with the American public, be a tough gangbuster. Go after the bad guys, go after foreign bad guys. Go after Middle Eastern bad guys. Go after Swiss bad guys. This would have made Holder a popular guy. And now Loretta, this is a bouquet he gave her.
She comes in and she gets a great case to break.
A great case? How much are we paying this lady?
So, what’s in this for Obama and his Lynch? Some of that “international” money bag? Are they joining the Clinton way of bribes and extortion?
Nobody Wins, when the United States President and his Attorney General are more concerned about kids little league foreign soccer camps, than the be-headings of Christians.
Ms Alice Lynch has fallen down the rabbit hole of absurdity. It’s the same old “Keep your eye over here, while the REAL corruption is happening right in front of you.”
Loretta Lynch—paving the way for the safe use of …a safe soccer ball world.
Yes, I’m sure of it. Pigs are flying. Ever since Congress impeached Bill Clinton for grouping an intern instead of the more serious crime of giving North Korea plutonium, we have all been on a travel log to never, never, never, never, land of insanity.
Soccer. Who knew we were in so much danger?
I just watched the movie, “White House Down” for the first time this afternoon. After it was over, I was listening to Rush Limbaugh who has been accused of being the ultimate propaganda expert by some liberal, whom I can’t recall the name of.
While Bretibart said that Jamie Fox, who plays Obama in this movie, did a fine job, there was so much political left-wing crap in this movie, my husband, once again, choose to ignore it, and just enjoy.
I found it, beyond disturbing.
Like Obama, Jamie Fox (who plays him in the movie, never mind he has a different name) was presented as just the coolest President ever to have chewed nicotine gum…and it was James Wood, who played the villain. James’s character orchestrated the attack of the White House, just so that he could get to the nukes and nuke the Middle East, because he didn’t like Obama’s (excuse me…James’) policies. And he was in on it with the Speaker of the House, who wanted our troops back in Iraq.
Of course..the lead character played by Tatum Channing, was the character to draw in the middle class conservative person watching this to identify with him, in order for the brainwashing to occur subtly. By the story line, of the movie you discover that right-wing terrorists are all out to get Obama, and were more to fear than ISIS.
While my husband dismisses this just as a movie, I found it unbelievably upsetting.
Goebbels would be proud, at the fine tuning of a propaganda program which makes Rush Limbaugh look like a man years behind the propaganda movement.
If Rush is high propaganda, than Hollywood and the liberals, make his class of propaganda look like a boy scout pushing lemonade. Thomas Edison wanted movies to educate….because…a movie hits ALL your senses. And that’s the danger here. The fantasy world of Hollywood can do wonders to an uneducated mind. And we have plenty of those.
Emmerich, who previously prayed at the altar of Al Gore with the global warming fright flick The Day After Tomorrow, outdoes himself with his latest adventure. White House Down slams conservatives, the “military industrial complex,” defense contractors and any politician who thinks it might not be wise to withdraw all troops from the Middle East.
You will enjoy the movie, but in the end, know that Obama will get the Nobel Peace Prize for helping Iran…the movie ends with that thought. Could it be more blatant?
Nobody can imagine the private screening that happened in the White House, when this movie first came out, and Nobody Wonders if Jamie Fox, after the movie ended, turned to Obama, and said.
I’ve been reading some interesting stuff lately…I try to read different magazines, different books, different authors. Because sometimes, you start seeing a pattern..like the patterns in nature, they just pop out..like this one:
For instance, I had heard on some TMZ entertainment program that George Lucas had married a black woman. I had always wondered why he broke up with Linda Ronstadt, but in a recent Vanity Fair Issue, It’s clear he’s found his soul mate. Her name is Mellody Hobson. They did a great PR piece on her: beautiful, rich, and surprise, surprise…her connections to the Obama Chicago Machine go way back: She is the president of her own management firm called Ariel Investments. She a board member of Estee Lauder, Starbucks, and Dreamworks. She’s worked for ABC and CBS. Warren Buffet was one of her mentors. She went to Princeton. Her recruiter was John Rogers who played basketball with Craig Robinson, Michelle Obama’s brother. (Wait! I thought Michelle was a poor girl!) Roger’s father was a neighbor of Valerie Jarrett., who helped Mellody’s career.
Didn’t your mother tell you it’s “who you know?”
Ariel (Mellody and Roger’s company) launched the Black Corporate Directors Conference to bring together board members from Fortune 500 companies and she was an early supporter of Obama.
In other words: Rich elites. Yes. Democrats, all going to board meetings of Fortune 500 companies.
Nobody Knows WHY the democrats can attack big business and capitalism when they are just as capitalistic as the next guy. Michelle Obama used to sit on Wal-Marts board of directors.
You tell me how this is capitalism. Politicians sitting on the boards of companies. Right. Nothing wrong with that.
And speaking of capitalism
This new Pope Francis, doesn’t like it very much. He condemns “trickle down” economics, and seems to love communist countries..like Cuba. He met with the Palestinian President Malmud Abbas and promised to sign a papal agreement to recognize a Palestinian state. Did he work out this deal with Obama? He certainly helped get him into Cuba.
Next month he will get together with Obama and berate everyone about Climate Change.
You know, I miss the days when Popes continued to talk about the Bible, and God, and the lessons of Christianity—-but when you start complaining about people’s pets, (People pamper their pets too much, he says.) he’s bordering on treason.
You have to wonder why the Pope isn’t reaching out to comfort the poor Christians being slaughtered all over the world.
Nobody Knows how the good Catholics can put up with this guy.
Catholics? Any words of wisdom?
And speaking of wisdom..
Nobody Knows if the Supreme Court is going to punch a hole in Obamacare.
After all…it’s was unconstitutional to begin with.
If the court rules in King v. Burwell that those subsidies are unconstitutional, upwards in 36 states could lose their subsidies. It would undo a key part to the Affordable Care Act — and possibly unravel the whole law.
Evidently Congress is already scrambling to keep all those people on them.–which just goes to show..the rich corporations, our Congressional cesspool, and even the Pope himself wants half of us in the West to fork over more money to support the other half everywhere else.
And when it all collapses, you can be sure that George Lucas and his wife, will generously leave some money to good causes..after all, they know Buffet, Gates, Obama, Jarret..and all the important rich democrats.
You can be sure, the fortune 500 companies that they all are in bed with will get even richer. And the Pope…well…
Papal blessings are coming soon..
Take Michelle Obama for instance. On the day that America honors the veterans and soldiers who serve our country, she gave a graduation speech at the all black Oberlin College, and it had nothing whatsoever to do with the importance of that day…unless of course she was looking for black soldiers to recruit to her cause. The cause of black revolution.
Notice the words she uses in her speech: She brags about Obama’s achievements while in office, but she cannot call it “progress.” …because it’s NOT progress. No it’s change:
“Think about how even with all the gridlock and polarization in Washington, we have made so much change these past six years: 12 million new jobs. Sixteen million people who finally have health insurance. Historic agreements to fight climate change. Epic increases in college financial aid. More progress on LGBT rights than any time in our history. And today, it is no longer remarkable to see two beautiful black girls walking their dogs on the South Lawn of the White House lawn. That’s just the way things are now,” Obama said to applause at the liberal arts college.
Right, 12 million new jobs..mostly part-time, and MOST of those jobs went to immigrants. Depending on what site you are on, 80-97 percent. Epic increase in college financial aid, is higher taxes for people who can’t afford to even pay for their own college. Gays have more rights and HER black girls can walk on the White House lawn. But…a black girl who tries to talk to the black President will be shot..and killed.
Remember that one? (And be sure to leave your black babies at home._
“See, that is how you will rise above the noise and shape the revolutions of your time. That is how you will have a meaningful journey on those clamorous highways of life. And, graduates, that is how you will carry on the proud legacy of this great institution for generations to come.”
If you read her big ‘change’ report, you have to wonder…blacks are doing worse than ever, Obamacare is failing all over, and saying that a black man got elected as President…leaves you with WHAT?
And then there’s Saudi Arabia, who needs more executioners:
With Amnesty International reporting at least 90 executions in 2014, Saudi Arabia is having to expand its ranks of religious executioners.
In the job advert posted on the Ministry of Civil Service website, the role is advertised as “executing a judgement of death”, but also states there may be the need to “perform amputations on those convicted of lesser offences.” The penalty of amputation, however, is rarely given by judges. According to Saudi lawyers it is considered “distasteful”. In for a penny, in for a pound, as they say.
What can you say about a Kingdom that just doesn’t have enough people to cut of all the heads?
Who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
The first Lady Michelle Obama, who is trying to continue to incite discontent and riots among black people…(Oberlin is a black college) telling them to revolt and take over? (Sorry, that’s the message I get)
Why else talk about revolution? Who are they revolting against?
Or is it the Saudi Kings who have to advertise in the paper to find good men with sharp swords?
Nobody Wins…The people of Saudi Arabia, and the citizens of America are both losers, because their leaders are tyrants. But the criminals in America have it better than Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, you’ll head will be cut off….
Here, you can grow up to be President.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
I think, it would entirely disrespectful for me to write anything today. Today, we remember all those who fought for America…and each and every one of us should remember that—-.
And it’s the soldier, NOT THE POLITICIAN, who keeps us safe.

Danish writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler, “the creative duo known as Wumo,“ have created a brilliant series of graphs that illustrate some of the basic painful truths of everyday life in the Western world. Their graphs and diagrams are snarky and sarcastic but, for the most part, true. This, coupled with their simple and official-looking design, makes them a delight to look at. Wulff and Morgenthaler share these images on Wumo (formerly known as Wulffmorgenthaler). If you think you may have seen their work before, it should come as no surprise – they are a fairly successful cartoon duo. Their rise to success started in 2001, when they entered and won a cartoon competition. When they won, they received a one-month run of their comic strip in Politiken, a national Danish newspaper. Their popularity soared with the new exposure, and they soon found more and more publishers, including several blogs and newspapers throughout Scandinavia and Germany. Their most recent accomplishment was becoming a regular cartoon strip in the New York Times.

That does it. I will always choose Southwest Airlines if I EVER fly anywhere in the United States again.

Nobody Gets Email:Okay readers…I just got this, and at least one reader will be proud to know, I went to Snopes who said it was a fake. But it’s a great little story and it SHOULD have happened.So, in honor of all Navy Seals, I’m putting it up anyway, along with another dog who, has probably scared more than his share of house intruders.Notice…the dog and Rob have the same stare.(Thanks to Kris)*********************Bin Laden Shooter Rob O’Neill Mistakenly Attacked By Street Thugs Seeking To Collect Debt From NeighborPosted on December 15, 2014 by Raoul Stockton in Headlines, Weird News**************BUTTE, Montana –
***************Robert O’Neill, the former United States Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama Bin Laden, had his home mistakenly invaded by members of a street gang this morning shortly after 1AM. O’Neill was uninjured, the five intruders all suffered injuries and remain hospitalized, but are expected to make a full recovery. Their names were not released in anticipation of the oncoming media storm.*****************Butte Police Commissioner Bartholomew S. Harrington told members of the Associated Press in a brief press conference that the five men, part of a local street gang connected with the infamous Crips, were seeking to collect on a drug debt and invaded the wrong house, with the intended target just so happening to be the next door neighbor of O’Neill’s.
********************“Mr. O’Neill had just turned in for the night, but was awoken by a loud crash when his backdoor was abruptly kicked in. As the five thugs ran aimlessly through the home, Mr. O’Neill used silent hand-to-hand combat tactics to individually disarm them of their weapons. Once Mr. O’Neill had taken down the five men and secured his home, he brewed a pot of coffee and called the police station. Those boys sure did find the wrong house!” commissioner Harrington said as he chuckled.O’Neill had little to say on the matter when Butte Daily Times journalist Kevin Williamson interviewed the celebrated war hero.
*****************“It was nothing really. Those kids didn’t have their mission planned out properly and hit the wrong target. I hated to break their wrists and dislocate each of their knees like I did, but it was necessary in order to immobilize the invasion. I hope they get the money that is owed to them once they get out of jail and decide to live better lives. My main concern is getting my back door fixed. Those boys really did a number on the door jamb,” O’Neill stated.************************The neighbor who was the intended target seems to have abandoned home and has not been found by police. According to the men in custody, the debt was over a $50 bag of marijuana.
HEY! It looks like the Donald is gearing up to really run this time.
Here’s some things he said at that conference:
On why Jeb and Rubio couldn’t make up their minds on the Iraq war:
‘Well, I don’t know,’ he said. ‘We spend $2 trillion, we lost thousands of lives, we’ve got wounded warriors – who I love more than anybody – all over the place. And you can’t say if it was a bad thing?’
He also lamented the fact that the U.S. ‘got nothing’ in return.
‘Remember, I said we should keep the oil.’
‘I like Jeb Bush. He’s a nice person. But when he was asked about Iraq, he couldn’t give an answer,’ Trump said. ‘It took him four days before he got his answer straight.’
On Carly Fiorina:
Fiorina’s next career turn was a 2010 U.S. Senate campaign against Barbara Boxer, which she lost by ten points.
‘She loses in a landslide. A landslide!’ Trump boomed. ‘And now she says, “Okay, now I’m going to run for president.” Give me a break!’
He has a point. But I do like Carly, because like the Donald, she is a business person, BUT she doesn’t have the “I’m going to GET ER DONE, attitude that the Trump has.”
He goes on:
‘It’s hard for me,’ he said. ‘I like these people but they don’t have it. It’s not gonna happen. Even the people I do like – it’s not going to happen, folks. They’re not doing what I do. I do it better than anybody.’
‘It’s going to be an election, in my opinion, about competence. And I’m the most competent by far.’
We live in a tough world, and as we saw today, the TTP was passed by the Senate. Donald would have fought that with everything he has.
Not many in the Congress did.
Nobody Cares if Donald Trump runs for President, in fact I’m hoping he does. It takes one to know one, and Donald knows the rich who rule this world, and won’t back down from a fight. He ENJOYS being victorious.
And he starts off with letting everyone know..he is NOT a politician. (Although, even in business you have to be) and that alone is what the whole country is sick of. Smart.
The people who WILL care if he runs are the GOP in Washington D.C…you can bet, they are already digging up the dirt.
But ask yourself: Who would you rather listen to the next 8 years of your life?
For a change…instead of my usual Nobody musing on history, I could not pass up these wonderful historical pictures sent to me by my friend Mona…while I can’t post them all, I picked out the ones that I thought really struck me as being pertinent to my nobody mind, and hopefully yours! See the rest of the pictures ….
Thanks to Mona, and enjoy!
Not many men in the world can match Mark Stein when he gets on a rant…about ANY subject. He’s funny, witty, sarcastic, and arrow-to- the- heart, devastatingly damaging to all liberal progressives policies, which is why you almost NEVER hear any democrat or liberal talk about him. He is that feared.
Since Obama gave a speech to the National Guard graduating class this week on the dangers of climate change, I thought Mark Stein should get the Nobody’s Fool Award for this week.
So, Congratulations Mark….you win the Nobody’s Fool Award for pretty much the next century! Don’t EVER stop!
Enjoy! And ….learn from the Obi Wan master of truth…the incredible, Mark Stein.
It’s GOT to be hard to come up with fresh ideas in a country where more than a third of the people don’t work. All those people sitting around doing nothing is not a good thing, so the democrats have come up with a solution.
Obama started this. He wants the taxpayers to pay for the first two years of college for everyone…Okay, I’m in.
Then Bernie Sanders, not to be outdone, wants FOUR year of free education: Even better!
The Vermont senator and presidential candidate has introduced legislation to eliminate undergraduate tuition at four-year public universities and colleges. His bill, called The College for All Act, would lower interest rates on federal student loans, give graduates a chance to refinance existing loans at lower rates, and stop the government from making profits on student loans.
But, wait: Hillary is not going to be outdone by those men.
Hillary wants debt-free college for everyone! I’m not sure what that means in Hillary land doublespeak. Does this mean she wants to give all citizens free educations? It has to mean that, because you have to PAY for college, so the only way you can be debt free is to not have to pay at all. Or do you build up that bill and it’s just erased at the graduation? And does she mean to forgive all the debts and student loans so far? She doesn’t say.
No, Hillary wants the state to not only provide free college, but free child care. Right after the mother pops that baby out, some state nurse will enter that little bundle into a Hillary state-run day care center.
Hillary Rodham Clinton says child care needs to become a national priority and is urging Republicans in Congress to provide more federal money to help working families care for their children.
The former secretary of state says Wednesday that Republicans should “get on board or get out of the way.” She says child care could be improved through new tax breaks to parents or grants to states.
Don’t kid yourself. Someday, welfare will no longer be there, so in order to eat, you will have to work, and you will have to work right after you have that baby. And Hillary will be there to make sure all the babies grow up to obey and respect…
Big Brother Hillary.
Yes, it’s got to be hard when a nation has been so destroyed economically that people can’t even afford a day care center let alone college.
And according to the news…next year, we won’t be able to afford chickens.
Hillary needs to get to work on that. I want my debt-free chicken eggs, don’t you?
