    Trump has a plan for peace, too. Just do whatever he says and worship him. Simple.

    Watch it. Woodstock’s leaf/hat will become the new look for fall.

    Oh, yeah, and like Repubs have never had secret meetings. Get real, Lisa.

    This really does raise the question of the efficacy of law. When Jimmy Carter entered the WH, he was forced to put his peanut wholesale business in the control of someone outside of his immediate family to avoid violating the emoluments clause. He did that and before he left office, his business failed, but the law survived. President Carter respected law and obeyed its requirements.

    President Bill Clinton, while he didn’t own property or a business prior to entering the WH, did acquire property in NY later. Since he and his family spent time there, he had built a structure to house the Secret Service when they would travel with him to the NY residence. There, the SS stayed rent free as the Clinton’s guests. The Clintons followed law, too.

    I mention these to illustrate how our present POTUS has violated the emoluments clause, almost from day one. He has hosted international meetings at Mar A Lago and sent the bill to us. And now we hear that Trump will be hosting the meeting of the major powers at his Doral property, which was losing money, and give it a good shot in the arm from us the Q Public.

    When the SS comes with him, as is required by law, he charges them room rent. In a very short time, the SS went through their entire budget paying for Trump’s rental bill, and needed an added appropriation from Congress to continue their work.

    Clearly, Trump doesn’t respect law, but sees it as something to get around and profit from. He, of course, expects to be paid when he sends out a bill for rentals and there is law that requires us to make payment for services rendered.

    When we drive on the roads, what prevents us from crashing into one another? We have laws that dictate where we are to drive, but those laws are only as good as our willingness to obey those laws. We stay in our lane knowing that should we stray into another’s lane we could cause an accident and be liable, under law, to pay all damages.

    We respect law. POTUS doesn’t.

    Gaylord is expressing the feelings of many of us readers who have questioned her magic skills. Many times she could have used her power but chose to use a very ordinary human approach. In this situation, she seems to be more like Yoda and less like Gandalf.

    Oh, No, Jamaal, the one thing kids of today are hung up on is their phones (plus tablets and laptops). And like the old wired phones of yesteryear, and my house today, the one almost impossible feat is to try to get the kids to hangup their smartphones.

    More than likely, being smaller would mean gato would torture the critter to death. Our cats, like Garfield, prefer well prepared, processed food. Afterall, cats have their standards, you know.

    Thankyou for reminding us of the Repubs maleficent past of working with foreign powers to undermine a political candidate. This is yet another reason the GOP should be disbanded as the evil party it is.

    Powerless radios were common during this time. I was told that my grandfather built a crystal set and could pick up stations as far away as Chicago, some 500 miles away. When I was a kid, I built a crystal set and could pick up radio stations using no battery or AC power.

    I’m into turkey bacon nowadays. It tastes great and is less fattening than pork bacon.
