Thiam and Kahn, Credit Suisse execs--does bank have history of diversity hires?

COO fired for having Kahn followed is Caucasian. Is there tension in bank, Swiss financial elite world over Switzerland's changing demographics?

Lance Walnau, Religious Right leader: Left lies, says US built on slave labor. On JimBakker show

Part of long rant that Trump at nearly the last possible moment is saving US from left's destruction of America's purpose and God's plan.

Saw this clip on YouTube video of Bakker show yesterday.

Listening to his list of things left is doing to destroy America reveals in what a different world white Evangelicals live in!!!

Incredible!! Just listened to Schiff's opening statement to intelligence committee hearing!

He makes the situation very clear.

No yelling, no screaming, no hand-waving.

Just quietly and in simple, straightforward, easy to understand words.

A speech for the history books.

A great tragedy that such a speach was and is necessary.

'Stick 'em in the eye', play on DU cartoon thread--German count out-rhyme---

In English we have 'one, two, buckle my shoe---'

German---
'Eins, zwei, Polizei.
Drei, vier, Wein und Bier--'

One student of children's rhymes pointed out that kids in areas where several languages are spoken often redo the rhymes in one language to use several.

That's what I thought of when my son (8) redid the German cut-out rhyme as

Eins, zwei, poke you in the eye,
Drei, vier, kick you in the rear--

Vonda McIntyre died in April. Great science fiction author. 2nd woman to win Nebula, 3rd to win Hugo

Winner was her 1978 book Dreamsnake. (A wonderful book; do read it.)

So sorry to learn she has died.

Remember when Elizabeth Taylor was on the soap General Hospital? She liked Luke, Laura story

Some of her appearances are on youtube.

Also many bits of the Luke and Laura story, esp THE WEDDING!

?!? Read officials ready to admit Bahamians, ferry captain refused to let them land!?!

It was captain's decision, not that of US govt

Anyone else hear that???

New US motto---any billionaire can become president!---replaces any boy, girl can become president

Wealthy men have run and become president--FDR, JFK

But with Romney something new was added. Unlike those 2, Mitt was blatantly, in-your-face rich. It seemed to be his defining characteristic.

Plus he treated the nomination as his right.

And why should HE disclose his tax returns?!?

Trunp followed a pre-laid path---'Hey, if ol' Mitt can do it, any billionaire can!'
