Venting

A couple of months ago, I discovered that I had used up my free articles at the Wall Street Journal, but I wanted to read another one for all y’all, so I signed up for their $1-for-two-months free trial. Since then, I have only gone to the site maybe 4 times, so I definitely wanted to cancel it before the $20 for February hit my credit card.

I went to the digital account for my digital subscription that I signed up for digitally, but golly gee whiz, they won’t let you cancel it digitally. I had to call. They don’t even allow email or have a TDY number, so I guess it’s too damn bad if you’re hearing impaired. My hearing is not what it used to be, but my real problem today was that the phone that doesn’t hurt my ears (physical pain, I’m talking here) decided to conk out the very day Dearest left for the Mascots and he won’t be back in time for the WSJ thing.

Thankfully, and I mean that in all sincerity, Mama Buzz keeps me supplied with a cell phone. God bless her! She gave me the phone itself and keeps the account paid; she knows I don’t like to use the phone, but says she’s paying for her own peace of mind. I keep it charged at all times, cuz our landline doesn’t work when the power goes out. And I carry it when I leave the house in case I fall or something.

So anyway (big sigh), I called the stupid WSJ from my ouchy emergency cell phone. And for reasons that totally escape me, not only does the stupid WSJ not let you digitally cancel a digital subscription that you signed up for digitally, but also does not hire IT guys who have any common sense or any customer service people who can spell.

2020_01 29 Trump one life

MEDITATION: God has carefully, tenderly created every person in His own image and likeness, to be in a loving relationship with Himself. From each tiny child knit within a mother’s womb, to every person approaching death, we are loved, perfectly and completely, by God.

It is therefore a service of love which we are all committed to ensure to our neighbor, that his or her life may be always defended and promoted, especially when it is weak or threatened” – Pope Saint John Paul II, Evangelium vitae 77

Bolton

William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection says the same thing as the video [2:40] – “We have seen this show before, it’s all designed to pressure a small number of weak Republican Senators to allow Democrats to turn the Senate into a circus in which the process becomes the punishment.

Alan Dershowitz Presents His Case Against Impeachment

January 27, 2020 Senate defense [1:06:47] Retired Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz gave what may be the most persuasive case against impeaching President Donald Trump while in the well of the U.S. Senate on Monday evening.

Speaking as a representative of Trump’s defense team, the lifelong liberal Democrat urged senators to not “let the feelings about one man, strong as they may be, cause irreparable damage” to the fate of other presidents. “Passion and fears of the moment must not blind us,” he pleaded.

Giving a clinic on the history of impeachment in a matter-of-fact and understandable way, Dershowitz explained the derivation of the idea of impeachment and explained that it was to have been the breaking of a defined, limited law and not an amorphous and generalized idea of bad conduct.

Dishonesty is a sin and not a crime,” he told the lawmakers.

Remember this, my fellow rubes!

Last Saturday, a CNN panel showed us all what they think of President Donald Trump’s supporters.

CNN guest Rick Wilson got the party rolling by saying that “Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter ‘U’ and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,” which sent CNN anchor Don Lemon into a hysterical fit of laughter. Continue reading

My latest update from the campaign trail.

2020 Fake News

TRUMP: Donald Trump has been a magnificent President. He has accomplished things that no president ever has, but that at least one predecessor, Barack Obama, said never could be achieved – e.g., bringing high-paying manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.

In fact, our economy is the envy of the entire planet. Overall unemployment is the lowest in decades; among minorities, it is the lowest in history.

Why Won’t Hillary Go Away?

2020_01 27 Hillary 2d place

Excerpts from the Washington Examiner – Hillary Clinton lost a winnable election where she enjoyed every conceivable advantage over her opponent, including a roughly 2-to-1 edge in campaign spending.

She then went on to become the first failed nominee in modern American history who cannot manage to move on.

The former secretary of state’s many public appearances over the past three years have served the sole purpose of allowing her to name and blame persons, places, and things she believes robbed her of her rightful spot behind the Resolute Desk.

Clinton lives now to mourn her failed candidacy and to lash out at anyone she deems to have been insufficiently loyal. To date, she has gone after the FBI, the Electoral College, systemic sexism, the news media’s coverage of her campaign, alleged voter suppression tactics, and the voters. Continue reading
