I am happily retired after 35 years of Labor and Delivery nursing. My passions now are two wonderful grandchildren, quilting on my HQ 16, sewing, and going where life takes me with my husband of 28 years. I am primarily conservative with moderate views on a couple social issues.

    Quote from Lil Nel

    On the other hand, last night, Justin Trudeau took Ivanka Trump and Nikki Haley to see Come From Away (which is playing on Broadway). The musical highlights the generosity and kindness of Canadians during the grounding of overseas flights in Gander following 9/11.

    I am sure the point was lost Ms. Trump. I first heard about Come From Away while listening to the CBC show, Q, on my local public radio station. The music and story are infectious.

    Canadians, be proud of who you are.
    Why would you think Ivanka didn't "get it?" That is so insulting. The story of Canadians helping in this way is a great one, but it is by no means confined to them. I was witness to a similar kind of kindness that day also....right here in the US of A.

    And we will reduce unemployment by hiring more ICE agents, increasing the military, and hiring into jobs formally held by undocumented workers
    Sounds like a very good start.

    So you are fine with a foreign government having into a major political campaign, as long as votes weren't tampered with?

    Well, it was fine when the Dems in power tried to do the same thing in a number of other countries, including as far back as Ted Kennedy.

    You made me chuckle. Trying to stay away from politics but I peek in every so often . . . can't help myself.
    Laughter is the best medicine!

    A shadow government?
    Obama is leading it?

    Do you wonder why they won't answer your call or respond to conspiracy crap like this?
    Or maybe you feel like investigating that makes more sense than investigating the relationship between Russia, Putin, and Trump?
    Well, they never answer or if they do, it's a form letter that has nothing to do with the reason I called. So there's that. And yes, there is quite a bit of talk about a shadow government. You can choose to research it or not.

    I think I'll call Senators Cantwell and Murrey to demand they look into what appears to be a shadow goverment, led by Obama. They will not answer my call, or respond either.

    I've seen some name-calling as well, on another thread. I believe you referred to our Washington State Attorney General as a hack. Or is that considered acceptable?

    Yes, I did. And I stand by that. Based on some of the bone-headed things he proposes and also since such use of language has been blessed here to be used to refer to someone with whom you disagree vehemently.

    I feel insulted, (as should others like herring that keep it civil) but I will chalk it up to your tendency to exaggerate. LOL
    If you have not been using the name-calling method of referring to the new President, then this did not apply to you. In this case I don't think I am exaggerating....but I see a LOT of name-calling...maybe from just a few, but it is enough to taint the barrel.

    I hope we all can.
    Unfortunately the current President of the United States has not set a good example for people to follow.
    But WE can set a good example....and that isn't happeing here or anywhere.

    I personally would like the name-calling of President Trump to cease. It's disrespectful of the Office of the President at the very least. It wasn't something the Obama supporters liked of those who didn't support him, and most of us referred to him as Obama, Mr. Obama, the Prez, but never by names that were disrespecting. Any chance we can all start acting like grownups?

    I'm following the story about General Flynn from numerous sources and the consensus is that there is more concern regarding the leaks from our own intelligence community and that it looks like it was Obama's cohorts who are orchestrating the leaks to undermine Trump as well as Flynn over knowledge of the Iran deal.

    I've heard high praise for General Flynn from people who know and have worked with him from the left to the right.

    BOMBSHELL: Flynn Allegedly Targeted by 'Obama Loyalists' Over Knowledge of Iran Deal | Daily Wire

    That NYT's article Tweety linked had a sensational headline but the buried in the story is this:
    Flynn worked for and in the Obama administration as well, and accoridng to something I read yesterday, amid making heart-shaped and pink sugar cookies with the 3 year old granddaughter, is a Democrat. I think the leaks point to inside people too and if any of them are still loyal to Obama and unable to get over the elections results, they would be first on my list to investigate.

    Quote from PMFB-RN
    Well kinda. Those states will also accept a passport. And it's not just "citizens" who must present birth certificates, it's anyone who is applying for a photo ID.
    I've mentioned before that my state (Wisconsin) has a voter ID law, but a Wisconsin driver's license satisfies the ID requirement. There is absolutely no requirement that one be a citizen to obtain a WI drivers license and in fact many non citizens have WI drivers licenses. My wife is one of them. She is not a US citizen but holds a drivers license, as well as a state issued ID for her job identifying her as a county social worker.
    She, or any non citizen with a drivers license, could show up to vote and do so no problem.
    Any talk about voter ID being about preventing non citizens from voting, as the propaganda used to pass the WI voter ID law said, is patently absurd.

    I am a bit confused. If your wife has a valid ID that could be used for voting purposes, but is not a citizen with voting rights, how is the law as proposed absurd. Serious quesion.....simply not understanding your last sentence. Thanks.

    Speaking of boat accidents, if WA state passes the absurd law proposed by our hack of an AG, we'll be having one of those accidents also...or moving.

    To your question, no a person should not be denied to vote without due process. But I would say that if they haven't done what they need to do, in the case you mentioned before, then expecting that required change to be overlooked on election day, is also unreasonable.

    To the issue of birth certificates, and using that 1930 date from above. Anyone born in 1930 or before would be 87 or older. My father was born in 1927, in a farmhouse, and had a birth certificate. My point about that was that as time marches on, they will be fewer and fewer of those of those advancing ages and even some of those will have a birth certificate. Should we wait until 2035 to stop with this argument? There will without question be another one by then.
