Another DJT trap

Did the Democrats take the bait or fall in another Trump trap again?
Yesterday, President Trump tweeted the word “lynching” to address the secret impeachment proceedings in the U.S. House.   
Within seconds, the Democrats’ “outrage committee” was out with their own tweets and speeches accusing President Trump of misusing the word “lynching.”  It was terrible, or so they told us.  “How dare he” said some.  Doesn’t he understand the history of that word?   
Then came the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey used to say.
We learned that many Democrats had used “lynching” in defense of President Clinton in 1998.  In fact, even then-senator Joe Biden had done it:  Watch the video!
48 hours later and Democrats are now forced to defend their use of the word when their guy was under impeachment.   
How does this happen?  Is it a coincidence?  I don’t think so!
My guess is that someone in the “video” department of the re-election team brought this to President Trump’s attention.  He used the word knowing quite well that there would be outrage from the other side.  Then they drop the Biden video and others using the word.
No coincidence here!  Trump constructs the trap and the hysterical Democrats go in head-first!

A crazy movie: "Two Guys From Milwaukee"

Related image

Just saw a few minutes of "Two guys from Milwaukee".......a movie from 1946 with Dennis Morgan, Jack Carson & Joan Leslie........this is a summary that I found later:   
Balkan Prince Henry has two wishes, to meet Lauren Bacall and see the "real" America. He befriends cabbie Buzz Williams and, without knowing the microphone is live, the two stage a debate on democracy versus monarchy broadcast back to the Prince's homeland. 
A plebiscite there puts Henry out of a job. Flying to MIlwaukee to become a beer salesman, he meets Bacall on the seat next to his, but a tap on his shoulder means he must give up his seat (and dream) to Bogie.   
Well, I will tell you what I think later but this is a movie with a lot of crazy potential!

Chile and Allende on this day in 1970

On this day in 1970, the Chilean Congress confirmed Salvador Allende's election. Allende got less than 40% of the vote so the election had to be settled in the Congress.

Shortly after taking power, Allende moved to the left rather than trying to bring the country together after such a contested election.

He extended diplomatic recognition to North Vietnam, North Korea, and Cuba. He also started talking about nationalizing the holdings of U.S. corporations in Chile, such as ITT and Kennecott Copper.

Allende's presidency turned the Chilean economy upside down. Chile went into a political crisis leading to General Pinochet's overthrow of President Allende in 1973.

We remember Stephen Covey (1932-2012)

We remember that Stephen Covey was born on this day in 1932.   

He accomplished a lot and wrote many books.

My favorite was "The 7 habits of highly effective people", a book that I enjoyed a lot.     

I also learned a lot from reading it:
