        I only just made it to see the morning (11.30am) – but just look at the perfect timing in joining the world ๐Ÿ™‚

        Just went back to read your tweets NW – brilliant as usual.

        The word “ghetto” is, in my vocabulary, describing the horrors of Europe during WWII – and Bernie is older than me – if he grew up thinking ghetto = black, that was something he learned in his home and/or school.

            I still have no understanding why dems always have to “explain” their statements to the media, yet Trump just shrugs his shoulders & denies what he says or doubles down (depending on his mood presumably). Descriptive sentence on Trump in our press today

            “What’s worrying about Trump is his unpredictability, his disregard for any boundary between truth and self-serving fiction, his unbridled narcissism, his instability, and his apparent desire to pursue his enemies with the tools of high office.”

              If we in the US think Trump’s word keeps changing and you cannot rely on his word, wtf will other world leaders think about trusting our leadership?

                Very little – but fortunately Trump is not going to win – wish we could bypass seeing & hearing him in the meantime.

        I had the worst experience of my tech life when I called for HP support for help in setting up the wireless printer. It is currently sitting on my desk with broken pieces and papers stuck and sticking out of the uncovered back. I can deal somewhat with the language problems, but not people who read from a script and are unable to answer simple questions. In the process of trying to get a replacement. I had better luck with the computer and the first tech guy who was able to answer my question and went beyond that to actually download a few programs directly to my p c. Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

    Good compilation, NerdyW – thanks.

    The Sharapova admission makes you wonder if this particular drug hadn’t been added to the banned list would her practice of taking something ‘for endurance’ have ever been forced into the light? Sports skeptic that I am, it never surprises me when a major athlete is caught taking drugs. I suspect most of them take drugs and aren’t caught because they can afford top doctors knowledgeable enough to stay a step ahead of the drug testing agencies.

    Bibi & Co. already walking it back. So freaking tired of that POS:

    “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has canceled a trip to the United States, where he had planned to attend the conference of the pro-Israel lobby the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC.ย The White House was outraged at the cancelation, after it was reported that among the reasons given for scrapping the trip was that it was not possible to schedule a meeting with President Barack Obama. According to the White House, Netanyahu was in fact invited to meet the president and the administration only learned of the cancelation through the media…..

    ….But an outraged White House claimed the opposite was true. Ned Price, the spokesman for the National Security Council at the White House, said that two weeks ago Netanyahu was offered a meeting with Obama on March 18. “We were looking forward to hosting the bilateral meeting, and we were surprised to first learn via media reports ย that the Prime Minister, rather than accept our invitation, opted to cancel his visit,” he said. “Reports that we were not able to accommodate the Prime Minister’s schedule are false.”Following the Americans’ angry response, sources at Netanyahu’s bureau clarified that the prime minister decided not to go to Washington at the height of the presidential primaries as U.S. presidential candidates from both parties were set to attend the AIPAC conference and had requested meetings with Netanyahu, something that could create the impression of intervention by the prime minister in support of one or another candidate. “We wanted to prevent such a situation,” a source at Netanyahu’s bureau said….continued”

    Except during the 2012 Campaign & addressing Congress to try to undermine President Obama’s Iran deal…smh

    Sharapova has been taking this drug for ten years. Just about the time Serena started whipping her on the regular. If I was Sharapova and was taking a PED to help me beat Serena, and 5 years into it Serena had beaten me 9 or 10 times in a row, I’d figure it wasn’t working and stop taking it. Seriously, while most players that have commented are being polite and calling her “classy” for coming forward, most are saying that this is not just a simple mistake. With a high powered team of professionals, including doctors, this shouldn’t have happened.

    • 31 vcprezofan2
      March 7, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      ‘With a high powered team of professionals, including doctors, this shouldnโ€™t have happened.’

      Unless of course the doctors were in on it, and the drug was a part of her training treatment.

      Also too, IMO her coming forward in this manner is more a strategy to circumvent/minimize criticism than her being ‘classy’. I wouldn’t apply ‘classy’ to someone who has made disparaging, inappropriate comments about her opponent (without any provocation).

      • 32 Dakota
        March 7, 2016 at 10:12 pm

        You’re right about that, VC. I was mostly referring to her team that should be on top of what drugs are currently on the banned list. No excuse. Maria may be the media darling, but she is not well liked on the tour. She is as nasty as they come. You’ll notice that none of her peers have rushed to her defense or to call her classy. Those that did were mostly former players and commentators. And all stated that she can’t claim ignorance. Just read that Nike dropped her.

          /whispering/ The info I’ve seen about her, Dakota, I’ve seen here. I don’t follow sports, but whatever I’ve heard in the village has not painted a good picture of her. In truth, I tend to be somewhat suspicious of most, if not all, upper level athletes who have records that are too ‘super-human’. /shrug/ It seems if you wait long enough drugs/doping will eventually come to light.

    “Apparently President Barack Obama takes his coffee with a splash of hipster cool. That’s because according to reports, POTUS is stocked up with the Chemex coffeemaker, a retro glass pour-over machine made in Massachusetts that’s popular with bean fiends who prefer to make things the old-fashioned way. The lab-inspired vessel is so beloved, the White House recently ordered 150 of them etched with a presidential seal, according to the Boston Globe. The Chemex coffemaker has been around since long before Obama brought his love of lattes to office: It was invented in 1941, and the design has barely changed. The simple glass beaker is so sleek and so iconic, it’s in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art. Chemex is known for making a pure-tasting cup of coffee that’s impossible to over-brew. What’s more, the glass acts as both a brewing vessel and pouring pitcher in one….continued”

I need to know these things so I can stay in the loop ๐Ÿ˜Ž I have a bunch of crap coffee places I know of near my home, so I usually by a box of Tazo Chai and make tea at home…sadly the best tasting coffee to me is Burger King’s Vanilla Iced Coffee…I love that for some reason ๐Ÿ˜•

          Burger King’s vanilla iced coffee?!?! Is there any vanilla in it? Any coffee? Or do the ingredients read like a 9th grade science experiment?

          • March 8, 2016 at 12:22 pm

            ๐Ÿ˜† there is a little vanilla! For some reason I really like it. McDonalds has a similar flavor w/Seattle’s Best but w/ caramel and it makes me sick every time I’ve tried it. At Starbucks I only like the flavors they roll out during X-mas. I miss my favorite indie coffee shops at the University of Iowa and at Auburn University. I mostly down to pre-boxed Chai mixes or the Indian brands of Chai my folks drink, but they add ginger in all theirs ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Well, I went to the Clinton rally in Detroit but I couldn’t get there until a little after seven and joined the end of a rather long line. They closed the doors at about 7:30 because the venue was full. There was still quite a long line of people waiting outside. So I guess there was a good turnout. I will be voting tomorrow.

      I remember in 2008 at a rally I attended this same time of year that Obama met with the crowd outdoors that could not fit into the arena prior to coming in to give his rally speech. The area was set up with speakers so that overflow group could hear his speech too. I heard that he continually did that anytime the venue was overcrowded.

      • March 7, 2016 at 11:34 pm

        I thought about that, and maybe it does speak to some flaws in the advance prep. They did ask for rsvps but probably lots more attended than actually rsvp’d. It was also dark and sprinkling. Some folks were disappointed; most took it in good part.

    At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump: Karl Rove shared focus group findings that give hope to the GOP establishment. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/aei-world-forum-donald-trump_us_56ddbd38e4b0ffe6f8ea125d?2oz85mi

    “Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering. The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump. Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he “cannot support Donald Trump.” Along with Ryan, the House was represented by Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton (Mich.), Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas) and almost-Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), sources said, along with leadership figure Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.), Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Texas) and Diane Black (Tenn.)….

    …Philip Anschutz, the billionaire GOP donor whose company owns a stake in Sea Island, was also there, along with Democratic Rep. John Delaney, who represents Maryland. Arthur Sulzberger, the publisher of The New York Times, was there, too, a Times spokeswoman confirmed. A Politico spokesman refused to say whether publisher Robert Allbritton attended. Allbritton was on a list of people scheduled to attend last year’s conference. “A specter was haunting the World Forum–the specter of Donald Trump,” Kristol wrote in an emailed report from the conference, borrowing the opening lines of the Communist Manifesto. “There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he’s done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated….continued”

    Good to know….as they say “the company you keep” ….remember Hollywood is “Liberal” too.

      GOP haven’t done so well with their secret meetings – apart from the fact that they always become un-secret.

      THese three were at another secret meeting to make PBO a one term president. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan

      Adding that Bill Kristol wants Trump out – seems that Trump will be the GOP nominee. Wonder if those great supporters of business freedom will vote for Trump anyway?

    Via Pierce – question from the dem debate in Flint

    “I want to ask both of you this question. I appreciate you responding to that question, but I want to ask both of you again. In a speech about policing, the FBI director James Comey borrowed a phrase from the Broadway show Avenue Q, saying, “Everyone is a little bit racist.” What racial blind spot do you have? Secretary Clinton, you first.”

    So Bernie’s answer was rather a mess – but my question is why is this NEVER asked in a GOP debate. I want to see Trump, Cruz and Rubio have to answer this question. They will be more than “rather a mess”.

    • March 8, 2016 at 4:48 am

      Because the GOP says we are in a “post-racial” society where there is no problem. Hence the voting rights laws, affirmative action, and every other policy that attempts to bring greater opportunity to people of color should be dismantled.
