Adam Schiff for president? Yes or no.

Schiff was born in Framingham, Massachusetts, the son of Edward and Sherrill Ann (Glovsky) Schiff.[2] He was raised in a Jewish family, and moved to Danville, California, during high school.[3] He graduated from Monte Vista High School[4] and received a political science degree from Stanford University and a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School.

After Harvard Law School, Schiff began working as a prosecutor in the Los Angeles branch of the U.S. Attorney's Office. While an assistant U.S. Attorney, he gained attention by prosecuting a case against Richard Miller, a former FBI agent convicted of "passing secret documents to the Soviet Union in exchange for a promised $65,000 in gold and cash."

Trump on Netanyahu: Bibi who?

How I cut the cable (DISH) and learned to love ROKU. And YOUTUBE TV.

Disclaimer: I am neither employed by nor compensated, in any way, by ROKU or YOUTUBE TV.
I am 77 years old and retired (commercial pilot).

We bought a 'smart' TV.
We bought a ROKU stick for $30.
It was on sale, down from $40.
It took about 15 minutes to set it up.
I am NOT an electronics/computer geek.

I now have free access to hundreds of TV channels.
Many are not even broadcast channels.
They are only available on the internet.
Like tubi.
500,000 movies?
OK, you can go to the ROKU website and see what they have.

ROKU does not have local channels.
That's where YOUTUBE TV comes in.
(Not to be confused with YOUTUBE on ROKU. That is completely free and NO commercials. Thousands of movies, TV shows, cooking, documentaries, etc.)

I was paying $100/mo. for DISH and a hundred (thousand) channels I never watched.
You get all your local channels and their national feeds, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and MSNBC, CNN, CNBC, etc., plus every sports channel known to man. Channels I didn't even know existed.

This is my present to DU.
I quit watching DISH in September.

I cancelled their service three weeks ago.
(Just want to make sure I could watch everything I wanted before I cut the cord. Alabama football, Super Bowl.)

It's not nearly as scary as you think.

PSA for Millenials and younger:

At some time you may find yourself somewhere in the backwoods of the country, at an old fishing or hunting cabin, or possibly an ancient gas station and be faced with a dial telephone.

Yer welcome

I'll give Mike Pence his due.

He is excellent at his perceived job.
To Trump's base, he EXUDES the tone and facial expressions of a deeply CONCERNED, and ERNEST, and loyal-to-his-boss (DEEPLY PAINED at his detractors) right-hand man.

He AGONIZES when Trump's critics somehow don't understand all the wonderful things his boss has brought about.

And I think he consented to take this job because he deeply believed that Trump could not possibly, by ANY stretch of the imagination, survive 4 years in office and that Pence would, by default, become president.

If it is possible, I have more contempt for him thaN I do for Donnie Two Scoops.
