How far are you from Cudahy?  I hear there are some interesting town hall meetings going on there.

Genie, I had to look up Cudahy...so it's not near me.  It's up in LA somewhere.  I'm almost afraid to ask...but what is going on in the town hall meetings?

And WHERE IS MY COLIN FIRTH AVATAR?! :fav212:

Those minorities speaking for Trump are a minuscule portion of the CA population.  Possibly even less than minuscule. It made the news because it isn't the norm out here. Most people here would love to see him gone.  :fav204:

That whole hearing yesterday of the alleged wire tapping fiasco was interesting to watch... umm::

Oh yes.  Personally I didn't think CA had any Trump supporters.

A friend sent me that.  I replied "How far afield did you have to go to find that.  LOL  It was funny not only coming from CA, but the two minorities as well.  Most rare.


He thinks he got it from an Anne Coulter tweet.  He likes her.

What wire tapping?  You know I don't read the news.  I guess I'll go looking.

I found it.  I think that is very indicative of our News Journalist bias.

I don't care what truth turns out to be

But the news slant is mostly about Napolitino's UNPROVED allegation, which causes most Americans to miss THE POINT of the actually action of Obama asking the British to wiretap - and whether that is true or not.  It's all about Napolitino. They don't want to admit to any wrongdoing by a Democrat, so let's blame the Republican for spilling the beans.

Poor FOX, they're always taking it on the chin.  LOL

Most times if I want news, I go outside the US and see what BBC news or other friendly countries seem to say.

I'm not American, so I don't have to take a stand.
However, I must get this off my chest; never, ever did the US president resemble a clown more that he does now.
This man has no dignity, and shows no pride in being the leader of this great nation.
And let's be honest; performing your office by using Twitter is not only childish, but also dangerous.
I'll stop ranting now ...

You're not alone, Luce! 

I've had people ask me in London, Sydney and Auckland (all allies of the US)...the exact same question. "Are you afraid of your president?  Because we certainly are!"

My answer is always yes. He scares the crap out of me.

 LOL.  I'm sorry. 

I cannot agree or disagree yet.  He certainly isn't a politician and I don't believe he can run a country like a business, but I am not afraid of him.

He's certainly not going to nuke anyone.

His anger at how the US has been run does reflect a lot of people - I guess that's why he won.  I like the scheme he's doing now about trying to get back some of the money we've lent to other nations.  He's starting with Germany.  That's a good place.  They are not a poor nation. We are becoming one.  That is probably the business man coming out.

This news is 6 minutes old.  This is today's news.  This is what Trump wants to avoid happening to us, by closing borders to certain types.

U.K. Parliament Attacker Is Shot; Panic on Westminster Bridge

LONDON — Britain’s Parliament was placed on lockdown on Wednesday, plunging the country’s seat of power into turmoil, after an assailant with a knife stabbed a police officer and tried to storm the building, and a motorist on an adjacent bridge plowed over at least five pedestrians, killing at least one.

The Metropolitan Police described the attack as a “a terrorist incident,” but many details, as well as the sequence of events, remained unclear. Security officers shot the assailant outside Parliament. But it was not yet known whether the assailant was the same person who ran over the pedestrians on the bridge

The attack came on the anniversary of suicide bombings at the Brussels Airport and subway station that killed 32 people, along with three bombers. Though the authorities did not immediately identify the assailant in the attack on Parliament, the violence raised fears that London, which has been largely been spared as a target of recent terrorist attacks, has now joined cities such as Paris, Brussels and Berlin.

Ambulances and other emergency vehicles thronged the scene, and helicopters flew ahead, as one of the busiest sections of London was cordoned off and evacuated. The Westminster station on the Tube, London’s subway system, was closed. Prime Minister Theresa May was rushed into a vehicle and spirited back to her office, where her aides reported that she was safe.

I watched this terrorist attack unfold a few hours ago in London.

I know what Trump wants to do. Problem is that the terrorists are already here.

This is true.  So where do you start if your the President of this nation?

On Sunday 12 March, I and my family, Lise and little Mia, too, have walked over Westminster Bridge.

It's very scary to think it could have been us.

Genie, I'm not sure where to start. Unfortunately ISIS and al Qaeda have infiltrated the western world years ago. Believe me, being in the airline industry I feel like a sitting duck, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's not a matter of if, but rather when they'll use planes as bombs or missiles. For now cars and trucks seem to be their weapon of choice, but planes are much more effective.

Luce, isn't it crazy when you are in a location and not long after something crazy happens there, and your thoughts are "wow, could've been me".

How is baby Mia doing?!  We have to meet in London again some time...maybe not on a bridge though! :fav210:

  • He said he was making a film about taekwondo. But the great French director was actually on the trail of an old flame he had a secret romance with in the 1950sAt 91, Claude Lanzmann is a virtual folk memory of cinema. He is the former teenage fighter in the French resistance whose Jewish family went into hiding when war broke out. In 1985, he directed Shoah, the eight-hour documentary about the Holocaust composed almost entirely of first-person testimony. Now in Cannes, he has premiered a film about his personal experiences in North Korea. Napalm is a movie that, initially, takes its cue from the underreported fact that the US used the incendiary weapon in the Korean war of 1950-53. Related: Napalm review ?

Their inhabitants are all of a decorous flutter at the idea of this semi-unclothed male to whom they must minister, intimately.
