  1. And now there are reports by the WPO that Kushner has been "conniving" ( my word) with MBS on how to best address his response to the accusations. It' reported that he is doing this by un-monitored phone calls and emails directly to MBS. No senior official other than the president is supposed to have any communication with a foreign power unless it is monitored by a NsA representative. The Trump clan really think that they are above the law!

    easy solution for warm/hot shower?

    Go back and read the OP. Please explain exactly how your suggestion would solve hi problem.
  3. The local guy in the small town near me sells all of his saws with 12" bars installed or no bar at all to get around d the license requirement. If you want a bigger bar and chain you have to purchase it separately, but he will install it right at the time of sale. I bought a 20" bar for mine. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
  4. They were ripe for hijacking and wanted to win at all costs. Although many of them are not admitting it now I think that there are very many that wish that Trump never happened.
  5. The accusation was made in the Cohen sentencing document that was released by the SDNY. It is an 81 page document and I saw the charge but did not copy it, but it's been in the news. It's the first time that Trump has been accused of a crime by federal prosecutors. Here's a synopsis of the accusation: "Attorneys from the Southern District of New York state explicitly in the court filing that Cohen “acted in coordination with and at the direction of Individual-1” in handling payments to two women who claimed to have an affair with Trump long before the election. Trump is identified in this and other filings by U.S. attorneys as “Individual-1,” who “was elected President.” The quote is from Fortune and can be found here along with the entire sentencing document: http://fortune.com/2018/12/07/feds-accuse-trump-crime-cohen-campaign-finance/
  6. If you are going to quote me quote the entire paragraph. "The southern district of NY has recommended a heavy sentence for Cohen although Mueller has said that he fully cooperated with him. The reason the SDNY recommended the heavy sentence is due to lack of cooperation of Cohen in coming clean about all of his past "local" criminal activity. I can see the reason why he did not cooperate as he would be implicating local "criminals" and his and his family's lives wouldn't be worth a wooden nickle even if they were in witness protection in Nauru. Most likely the local "boss" has told him to serve his term, be quiet, and they will see that his family is taken care of. In addition, this is the first time that a document has been filed with the court that specifically accuses the President of a federal crime." He was not willing to enter into a cooperation agreement with the SDNY, not because it had anything to do with Trump, but because it would put him in a position where he would hive to "rat" on all of the people that he had dealings with locally., not a healthy thing for him to do. AS far as not seeing anything that specifically accuses POTUS of a federal crime, the document does accuse POTUS of campaign finance violations which is a federal crime!
  7. IMHO, Cohen was caught between a rock and a hard place. For him to enter into a cooperation agreement with the SDNY, he would have to agree to admit and cooperate on all of the criminal dealings that he had had, not just those that involved Trump. The SDNY is very strict regarding this issue, GUiliani knows this. He would have to admit to his criminal dealings with all of the locals and cooperate with the SDNY in prosecuting them. If he did this his and his family's lives would not be worth a wooden nickle. He pleaded guilty to lying to congress and cooperated with Mueller in hopes of getting his sentence reduced, but total cooperation with the SDNY was not in the cards. He has accepted that he will have to serve prison time and wants to start that ASAP to get it over with. I imagine that the "local" bosses have recommended that he do this, not cooperate and that his family will be taken care of while he serves his time.
  8. And now the sentencing memo for Cohen has been filed and the explanation of the reasons why Mueller tore up the cooperation agreement has been filed. The southern district of NY has recommended a heavy sentence for Cohen although Mueller has said that he fully cooperated with him. The reason the SDNY recommended the heavy sentence is due to lack of cooperation of Cohen in coming clean about all of his past "local" criminal activity. I can see the reason why he did not cooperate as he would be implicating local "criminals" and his and his family's lives wouldn't be worth a wooden nickle even if they were in witness protection in Nauru. Most likely the local "boss" has told him to serve his term, be quiet, and they will see that his family is taken care of. In addition, this is the first time that a document has been filed with the court that specifically accuses the President of a federal crime. The Manafort filling shows 5 areas where Mueller has evidence that he lied to them and will be followed by a sentencing document that might also add additional charges. His only hope is a Pardon! So now we have Cohen and Manafort in addition to Flynn!
  9. Normal procedure at Makro although you can buy big plastic bags at checkout. That's the reason that they still have guards at the car park exits, otherwise the Thai's would be leaving with loaded baskets and carts in the back of their trucks! The Tesco near me had paper bags on the 4th but I went in today and they are back to plastic and want to double bag everything!
  10. I've been on both. I can actually say that since my wife died almost 4 years ago I do not spend anywhere as much as I did when she was alive. So I am an example of 1 that can truthfully say that it's cheaper to live as a single retiree than it is to live as a married retiree!. No braille, no smoke, no fake news, just a fact in my case! Nuff said!
  11. Braille? Marriage is spelled marriage and retirement is spelled retirement. Not really!
  12. Wrong! He just doesn't give a crap unless it is about him! A true characteristic of a Psychopath which he is!.
  13. Please put your glasses on and go back and read my post! The second sentence says "I am on a retirement visa" but should say extension. The rest is correct! No harm, no foul when I misplace my glasses I can't read anything and usually find the glasses, many times pushed onto the top of my head!
  14. It never got off the ground! I am also on a retirement visa and the only time that I eat out is when I go to a local party. I can't remember when the last time that I ate in a restaurant, I think that it was when I met fredob43 at the bottle restaurant on AH1 about 3 years ago after my wife died. I live in the last house on a dirt road in the middle of farm country and there are no restaurants here other than the noodle shop in the Village that is run by my niece after my wife died.
  15. Many of the things that have been said during the funeral proceedings reminded me about how bipartisan politics used to be. My uncle was a 4 term republican Senator, 1947 - 1970, and while I was attending the U of Maryland at College Park, a suburb of DC, I conned him out of dinner many times. Most of the time it was with Republican and Democratic colleagues who discussed issues during and after dinner in a friendly manner only raising their voices at some times. There were never any food fights! Oh, how times have changed, now they would never eat together and the other patrons in the restaurant would now be throwing food at them recognized!
