    Good morning TOD. I cry when I see pictures of Barrack Obama. We went from this Handsome, smart, loving man to this thing in the White House.

      Congratulations to the Eagles and to Philadelphia! It was quite the game. So glad to see the Patriots loose. It’s a good day.

      I just finished reading this article
      It was very illuminating about the trust the rank and file FBI agents had in Director Comey. As expected, it refutes the lies told by the homegrown demagogue and his deplorable forever-liar mouth-piece Sanders

        Yea, it was an interesting read. I’m glad I read it, because for some strange reason it helps validate (in my mind) PBO’s choice of Comey. [My mind was perturbed about him during the Clinton-Comey hoopla.]

      Oh boy, she’s gonna make a list and send it to her boss.

      No party invitation for Palestine!

      Imagine how annoying she must be to drive a PEACE NEGOTIATOR to say that.

      I guess it could be worse. They could have Huckabee Sanders in there instead.

    I see PP is talking that fine talk of Democrats being ‘un-american’. Treasonous etc simply because they did not applaud during the Sotu. Nany Pelosi not supporting the military … same poisonous rhetoric he was using during 2016.

    Wow 1500 points! I swear to god just this morning when I got in to work I went to my TSP account and got out the market. I’m going to sit on the sidelines for a while until the market stabilizes. All federal employees with a TSP retirement account should pay attention.

    • February 5, 2018 at 4:03 pm

      Smart. I got out too early but still no regrets. This was a long time coming and today is the day you’re going to see the beginning of a panic. Trump, Ryan and McConnell are taking the WRONG approach to the economy.

    We are between the two eclipses now. There is a solar eclipse coming in on the New Moon, it’s only partial and we won’t see it, but nevertheless, an eclipse is an eclipse is an eclipse. More info closer to the 15th. Followed immediately by Lunar New Year of the Dog 4716. OH!! And I see we have 3 (THREE) eclipses in a row in July and August, this is a hot hot year! Good thing Gitmo isn’t closed yet.

    Hello TOD.
    Just read about the Dow Skidded off 1,500+ before settling back at 1,175 points. That’s 666 points from Friday and 300+ points from the week before.
    I smell panic settling in after the Sugar High Tax Cuts.
    Congrats, MtMarilyn on your Au ⭐ Furst 😉

    Asia is the world’s dominant region for air travel. Of all the passengers which airlines carried globally in 2016, 35% flew on Asian carriers.

    And that market share is going to grow.

    Every year, tens of millions of Chinese travellers choose to take an aeroplane for the first time.

    Airline body IATA forecasts China will comfortably overtake the US in the next two decades to become the biggest aviation market. While there were about 537 million passenger journeys in 2016, that’s predicted to hit 1.46 billion by 2036.

    And as you can see from the chart, Indian passenger numbers are expected to more than treble, though it is starting from a relatively low base.

    “Growing incomes, a burgeoning middle class and peaking working age populations… has translated into the rapid rise in the propensity to travel,” says Angela Gittens, director general of Airports Council International World.


    good luck magaing.

    The US Pentagon’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) is missing documentation for how it spent hundreds of millions of US dollars, a new audit finds.

    The firm Ernst and Young found the agency could not account for $800m (£572m), according to Politico.

    The money was reportedly used for military construction projects and computer systems.

    DLA confirmed failure to properly track its spending, but said there was no “loss of accountability”.

    “DLA concurs with Ernst and Young’s assessment of our failure to properly account for and track funding to specific construction projects,” a DLA spokeswoman told the BBC.

    “While there were shortcomings in documentation, there was no loss of accountability of real property or associated funding.”

    She said that the DLA was the first agency of its size and complexity in the department to undergo an audit and that they “did not anticipate achieving a ‘clean’ audit opinion in the initial cycles”.


    if we had ‘anticipated’ a clean audit, we would have been more careful with the corruption.

    a banana republic(an) state.

    …. so reports are that his lawyers are advising that the homegrown demagogue should refuse the Mueller interview ;

    …. scumbag has no idea that if he does then a subpoena will be issued for him to appear before a grand jury;

    …. grand jury is a setting in which his own lawyers will not be allowed to participate;
