"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Too bad she isn't more likeable.

That would cement the outcome

I can comfortably watch the drama now. The plot became instantly more intense when the New York 
Times reported the belligerent billionaire has likely not paid federal taxes for two decades. 

Think about that. 

He has likely not contributed  one red cent to any expenditure in federal programming in that period.  He milked the system instead. 

Hillary Rodham Clinton is everything I like to see in an elected representative. 

I would be content knowing whatever decision needed to be made would be most seriously considered.

Personal affection is neither here nor there, 

I just want my grandchildren and great grandchildren to be safe, secure and enjoy their lives. 

The world has never been a more dangerous place. 

Alec Baldwin's caricature of the candidate brings humour to an otherwise humorless narrative. 

He reversed the role of hero and villain to fool with one performance. 

For in-depth coverage,Print media has triumphed over the cacaphony of talking heads.

Television brings up the rear. 

I still mute the vast right wing surrogacy but expect more changes momentarily. 

Last night's V.P. "Debate" passed the time. The GOP candidate concentrated on posing and peering intently into my soul.Mellifluous tones and meticulous coiffure suggested nothing more than fastidious toilette. 

Immediately after,Jake Tapp named Governor Pence the winner. 

The camera immediately swung over to a room with twenty independent voters who promptly and mostly raised hands for Senator Cain. 

Tapps response was to point out the Senator has been a Councilman, Mayor and Senator in the area and insinuated natural preference. 

Sometimes I yell at the T.V.  

When Tapper named his preference, I yelled " D'you think think we're all effing stupid?" 

I was alone in the house at the time. 

Paul Bagala predicts Governor Spence' sole  intent was to lay groundwork for a presidential nomination  in 2020. It sure makes sense to me. Spence is nobody's stooge. 

Tuesday started on CNN with a comment in the morning from journalist Dan Balz. He didn't think the belligerent billionaire's non-payment of taxes will be  a voting issue. Mr Balz once commended the "muscularity" of the candidate's performance. 

This week, the author of a book on the nefarious business career stated shareholders in a company
he created, were swindled of their assets, as were contractors who did business with the greedy,
glutinous, lewd and crude self-styled  behemoth. 

Mr Balz doesn't think that matters. 

It will take time to sink in.

There is time. 

Mr. Balz and the rest will soon discover how much it matters.

Really? Where were you during the Cuban Missile Crisis?

We at least knew who the enemy was during that crisis. Do we have any idea who it is now? It now can be your neighbor. I believe we still live much better than we did during the missile crisis, but to say it's less dangerous or even safer....not true. We now have cyber warfare to contend with, and I really don't think many of us really have a clue the catastrophic damage hackers can inflict. Our lives depend on technology working.

Cyber warfare...? wow! I suggest that your tinfoil hat may be on too tight.

The enemy that we have right now is nothing but the ignorance of people that think they have embraced technology only to discover that they have given their credit card number to some 12 year old "cyber bully" in Bugtussle, North Carolina.

The funny thing is, the solution to "cyber warfare" is quite simple. Turn it off. You only get hacked when you do stupid things to allow it.

13:26 - You are one of the many who don't have a clue what hackers can do your life and the lives of others. Let's just hope that we never have to know.

06:56 - ...and you are wrong again. I know what hackers can do to your life and lives of others if you do not take precautions to prevent it.

Failing that, you are inviting them in.

How many people respond to the emails from a company asking for them to log into their account? Lot's do. They are not smart enough to see that the email is fake and the damage is done before you know it happened.

Hackers prey on the weak.
