A.O.C. and the Amazon pullout from N.Y.C,

I wonder if the decision to pull out of N.Y.C., was to put the skids on A.O.C. and left Democrats.

This will give Republicans ammunition on arguing that Dem positions cost jobs.

If she goes and other 2018 elected Dems go, Bezos and the billionaires get to keep their money. Giving up N.Y.C. would be a small price to pay.


Physician Assisted Suicide debate.

This is, again under discussion.

A primary objection seems to be about relatives pressuring people to end their lives because they don't want the care burden or worry about the cost of long term care.

What about the possibility of a downloadable statement. "I do not and never will want physician assisted suicide as an action for myself." Or a similar statement.

They can sign it and give it to their primary physician(s) as part of their care folders. It can also be given to their attorneys.

Would this be a reasonable answer to that objection?

Brexit, Brits & the Proms --

I was on Youtube, general music. I picked some '70s stuff -- and you get the side list, "Up Next."

Up next, came The Proms," Jerusalem" and "God Save the Queen." 2015.

Chills up my spine from the music and the people in the hall and in the park outside. Flags waving. Joy. I wish I had been there.

What will this years final night be like? Or 10 years from now?

Isn't evangelical Jon Chau entitled to a Darwin Award?

He deserves to be so honored and revered. Lets start a petition.

Physical abuse, not sexual.

Much has been written about clergy sexual abuse. Not as much about physical abuse.

Three examples from my life.

I was 12 and attending Catholic Confirmation Class. We were about 2 weeks from the confirmation ceremony when the nuns took us out of the classrooms and lined us up against a wall. A nun began asking us the questions based on the Catechism. One kid gave the wrong answer. The nun grabbed both his cheeks and, shaking him by his cheeks, gave him the correct answer and had him repeat it as she shook him.

A couple of kids down the line, a kid got a wrong answer. The nun slammed him against the wall. He fell. There was blood on the wall. Another nun took him out of the hallway. The blood was on the hall for several weeks.

Yeah, me too. I was kicked by a priest. I complained to another priest who said, "I will speak with Father.... " I soon left church, figuring, Jesus wouldn't act that way.

Several years ago, I went to a performance of "Nunsense." Good show. As a last part of the show, the actor asked if anyone in the audience had any questions. One guy, about 40 years old, asked, "Do you know why the nuns in my school hit me?" The atmosphere in the audience went dark. The actress apologized for his pain and believed that no longer happens.

Clergy physical abuse also leaves emotional scars and needs to be recognized.


So, if the Gropenfuhrer uses executive order to change the 14th. Amendment,

can the next, normal president change the 2nd Amendment and start by getting rid of AK 47's?

Car engine switch - code computer match

2009 Genesis and the engine was switched. It has been driven over 2k miles and will not generate a code, sufficient to pass inspection.

Any thoughts?
