About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Journal Archives

So, is this worse than the Watergate scandal that Nixon resigned over? What do you think?

Russians paying people to kill American troops?.

.President Trump knew & did NOTHING?

Actually supported Russian leader Putin..(Putin has something on Trump???)

Worse than covering up Watergate? Or not worse than covering up Watergate...?

(my opinion)...

YES, I THINK THIS IS MUCH WORSE THAN WATERGATE...

So, who are we to believe?...Donald Trump, or the Wall Street Journal & the New York Times?

Tough one ain't it?....Who to believe?...Who tells the truth & who lies?...

OH MY...Trump says..he was "NOT BRIEFED", AND SAYS.. 2 "FAKE NEWS" SOURCES MADE IT UP..

Not one ....but 2 says Stu.........................................................???

.............Who does one believe?...Rachael Maddow , New York Times, Wall Street Journal?
or......................................................Donald Trump ??..............

...Not briefed about Russians paying ..Taliban.. to kill American soldiers..., Stories in NYT and
Wall Street Journal...say Trump was briefed...Trump says ...NO!!!!

Choice is yours?........Room A, B, C, or the room with the liar in chief...Room D ...Trump/Dump?

2.4 million U.S.Cases...125,000 Deaths..New York Times..

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html

Hit the link above for more information...

__________________________________________________________________________________________

More than 2,483,500 people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus and at least 125,000 have died, according to a New York Times database. This map shows where the number of new cases is rising and where it is falling in the last 14 days.

Were there sources that said there was going to be a "big story on Friday?" I seem to recall that.

Well yesterday there was the story about Putin paying people to kill U.S. Troops and Trump knew this in March...
I wonder if that was the story that was being predicted?...Yes, if Trump knew and did nothing, he is totally done..
And as been said by many, that is a "big story"..

About Joe vs .....Trump/Dump.............

....Both of these men have been around a long time. Now a whole lot of people wanted to give Trump/Dump a chance to be a leader. So, it was close enough for nasty events to happen. But, I deeply believe that this time it will not be close. As long as all of us get out to vote, it will be a landslide for Joe.
....Here is why. The Trump/Dump show has been on the TV for about 4 years. Those who wanted to give Trump/Dump a chance have seen the results. Trump failed in every way that one can imagine. I will not list them, and there are far too many to list. Still, Trump/Dump failed miserably.
....It is indeed time for a change, but it ain't me, it is what I have read here at Democratic Underground....Story after story about lifelong republicans who gave Trump/Dump a chance, now see the total truth of their mistake. Those republicans, and millions more, will not give Trump/Dump another chance.
....Joe is a middle of the road kind of guy, who has been through a whole lot. Lots of experience and he is totally honest and also kind.... That is the exact opposite of Trump/Dump. Millions of republicans will now give Joe a chance, because the long show with Trump/Dump is over as many have said. Trump is a liar, Con Man, Russian Puppet, and a total ...Bully... Trump/Dump will lose and lose big. As stated earlier and by many others, Trump/Dump is also totally incompetent, and everyone has had an opportunity to observe that. Yes, I believe the show is totally over for Trump/Dump....Thank You for reading this..

One cop kills someone, gets 7 years...another cop steals some money gets same sentence..

The system is beyond repair...You must read the entire story to see how fucked up the judicial system is..
I came upon this looking at another post at Democratic Underground. Then, I read the entire story and realized how fucked up this is..Chicago Sun-Times is the link..Yes, please read the whole story.(a bit confusing, but the conclusion is correct) 7 years for the killer cop, 7 years for the stealer cop ______________________________________________________________________________________

This is the Democratic Underground post today..by mucifer......about Sgt. Elizondo,.title of that post is..Corrupt Chicago police sergeant sentenced to more than 7 years in prison for falsifying search

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213660028

This cop today, Sgt. Xavier Elizondo got 7 years for stealing money...The key paragraph is about half way down the page.. Please read the whole story toward the bottom,... you will find the paragraph below..The cop, Jason Van Dyke, got national publicity for killing Laquan McDonald in October 2014.....Van Dyke got the same sentence as the cop got today. Van Dyke was tried in 2019..(Van Dyke also got 7 years)

Today's cop was Sgt. Xavier Elizondo, he was sentenced to 7 years also.( about the same as the
killer cop..Jason Van Dyke)

The paragraph below is it: ( please read the entire Sun-Times article)
___________________________________________________________________________________
In 2017, a federal judge sentenced Officer Marco Proano to five years in prison for opening fire on a stolen Toyota Avalon full of teenagers in December 2013, wounding two. And a state court judge sentenced Officer Jason Van Dyke in 2019 to nearly seven years in prison for the October 2014 killing of Laquan McDonald.

One of the greatest qualities a leader can have...is be an ..."Outstanding Listener"

...How did I come to this conclusion? I was a teacher in high school for many years. History, all kinds...When I graduated from a fine university, I thought I knew it all, but I knew very little.
.. After many years, I realized that it was not all about me. If I could set a tone and atmosphere in the class, then students could add their experiences along with mine. It had to be an open tone and students needed to feel comfortable, not pushed upon and bent out of shape, if I wanted to hear the best of student's thoughts.
... I was discussing the Holocaust one day, and a very quiet student came up after class with a friend. (yes, this happened after 25 years of teaching, in the mid 90s..) He wanted to tell me a short story about the inhumanity of what he saw. He was very quiet and his friend told this story:
...He was from Cambodia..His father was a teacher somewhere, and the Khmer Rouge came knocking at his door one night. They wanted his father, and as he & his mom escaped out the back window of their home, the Khmer Rouge shot and killed his father. His mom and he escaped & made it to the U.S.A. where they live now..(This happened 25 years ago, but I still remember it clearly) I felt honored that he told me this. It was just the 3 of us, after class talking, and I knew he did not want to tell the entire class, so he told the teacher..
...Another student story that I will never forget is we were discussing intimacy one day in another class. It was a 9am class, & I was finally awake after getting there at 7:00am. I do not know how we got to the topic, but a very bright young lady, 17 or 18 told the entire class this story. She and her boyfriend often spent a lot of time together. When she and the boyfriend were in her room at her home, she always kept a condom near where they discussed and interacted together. Yes, that was said in a high school in a large city 23 years ago.. I guess the topic was protection against pregnancy or what ever, and intimacy.
.. In thinking about that now, I am very proud that these two students felt comfortable enough to tell their stories.. And I honestly say, that I could not have told either of these stories about me. But the students told them and this is the truth. The last story was told to the entire class, and I am sure those students remember that lesson.
...It is a lesson that I could not teach, but a student taught that to about 24 others. And the students listened, and I remember that too. .......Listening is often far more important than giving a speech or talking to lots of fellow teachers or large crowds of people. (and no names were given )
....One more very important idea: When you carefully listen to others, you can learn something you did not know before..

Thank You for reading this...Stuart...
