            Yes and exactly! If your 2nd grader is already reading cursive, I trust that reflects your positive influence and diligence as a caring parent recognizing the value to teach, early on, the art of reading. Writing is a most difficult chore to learn. For though they are only words on paper, emphasis placed differently on those words can alter dramatically an interpretation.

            Cursive also teaches hand to finger coordination, fluidity in forethought, control in presentation, congruity and focus. Unlike a typist able to more easily achieve stream of conciousness or dictation programs that perfect it, handwriting requires a bit more pre-planning and requires, perhaps, much less review and revision in removing the inconsistent and excess. All of these are lessons that should be demanded by parents sending their child to school.

            Our Constitution, handwritten in all its beauty and glory, can also be used as an opportunity to teach Patriotism – that when our Founding Fathers sat down to lay some rules, they did so with paper and pen and weren’t wasting any words.

    “My husband and I have maxed out — and I’ve never maxed out for anybody, ever,’’ said San Francisco attorney Harmeet Dhillon, a former vice chair of the party, who is hosting two tables at the Silicon Valley event. She says she has been deluged by requests for tickets from Republicans — big and small donors — who are desperate to be part of the scene.

    “I’ve had to say no to at least 50 people in the last few hours,’’ said Dhillon, as she made the rounds at last week’s state GOP convention in Indian Wells. “I sold out four tables very easily, and a lot of them are big donors,’’ she said. “I could have sold another $100,000 worth of tickets.”

      What a spectacle, I am appalled at how many of the members of such an important committee are so unprofessional. Nancy Pelosi has failed miserably in appointing leadership. It seems to me any positive reputation she would have enjoyed in history has been squandered in this Congressional session with her allowing Lawfare to take over the Congress, and her appointment of very unprofessional members to important committees and leadership. Another sad example of a woman who has failed us miserably.

      The 50% approval rating has them messing their drawers.

      That doesn’t mean that 50% of respondents will vote for DJT (and 50% won’t),..its a formulae established many years ago, and can’t be ‘jiggered’with, either.

      Conventional polotical wisdom says any POTUS, with a 40% ‘approval rating’, 1 year out from reelection, is ‘viable’.

      44% or higher, assuming no major downturn in the economy, foreign policy blunder or scandal, he’s a shoe in.

      At 50%, if that # holds to election day, its gonna be a blow out. And what can Dems POSSIBLY do to change that? They have ‘shot their wad’ expending ALL their ammunition (and credibility) and got NOTHING left for the election.

          Yes, a lot of people don’t, and its deceptive, cause you hear “50% approval”, and you think 1/2 of voters approve, 1/2 disapprove. NOT the case.

          Oh, there IS one caveat. This assesment (over 40, viable. Mid-40’s a SHOO-IN) is based on history since the developed this poll in the 60’s (Ithink).

          Anyway, in the,age of Trump, ‘past performance may not be,an indicator of future results’.
          Applies to everything it seems.
          Still, I’m thinking what I posted applies, and it is,why they are panicking.
          Because Obama Hillary mis-interpreted the approval rating polls for Obama, (not recognising the stealth disapproves who wouldn’t tell pollsters cause ‘rascist’) AND mistakenly assuming that Obamas ‘approval rating’ would transfer to Hillary, she based her campaign strategy on that.

          “A shoo-in, so run a ‘conservative’ campaign, cause ‘we got this’. Hence, since the polls ‘guaranteed’ her victory, and yet “Trump” won,…he MUST have cheated (with Russia).
          They have been further deluding themselves that he is a ‘weak’ Candidate, if they could JUST erode his support from those darn clinger deplorables!

          Just heard Lowandowski say yesterday, that for the first 15 months of the Campaign, the Trump campaign HAD NO internal polling!

          Moral of the story; live by polls, die by polls. Not only is it crucial to HAVE good data, you have to correctly INTERPRET the data. Or, stuff in, stuff out.

    • All that can be done now is to continue to expose them. Write and publish articles, taken from the Congressional Record, which repeatedly show how desperate these people have now become. Keep methodically exposing the “Lawfare” tactics, pointing out how different their “novel interpretations” are from the actual Law, and why this matters.

      Selective declassification, ordered directly by the President, is also becoming necessary, because a key part of their twisted narrative is that “they have done nothing wrong” while “the President has done everything wrong … yeah, we don’t have any evidence, but trust us.” Show the American people what Judge Collyer already knows.

      The “Lawfare” people – who, by the way, are incredibly bad lawyers – definitely shot their own foot when they demanded (and Nadler & Co. obliged) to do their own interrogatories directly. Lewandowski saw it coming and “played” them extremely well. Lawfare held tremendous influence, and made a ton of money, as long as they were whispering into influential people’s ears on the sidelines. Now, yesterday, some of their tactics were directly exposed to public record and scrutiny. It did not go well for them.

    Canada election interference.

    Federal parties being warned of efforts by 6 foreign countries to influence election: sources

    ‘Canada’s intelligence services are carefully monitoring the threat of agents of the Chinese and Indian governments working with diaspora communities here to influence the upcoming federal election, according to a number of sources who have been briefed on their activities.

    Those sources — who spoke to CBC on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record — also said intelligence services are monitoring efforts by Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Venezuela to influence the election campaign, while an integrated intelligence unit has been giving political parties bi-weekly briefings about foreign actors’ activities in Canada.

    The government and intelligence sources said one of the ways foreign countries go about pushing their agenda in Canada is by attending nomination meetings to help select candidates favourable to their causes.’

    Economist and trade negotiator Pelosi interviewed by Jim Cramer.

    ‘House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Donald Trump “had to do something” to challenge China’s trade practices.
    However, she says the president went about it in a way that opened American business and consumers to financial damage.’

    “I think the president had to do something about it, I’m just not sure he went the right way,” the California Democrat told CNBC’s Jim Cramer in an interview Tuesday. “I think we should have done it multilaterally, with the EU and the rest.”

    doh.

    There are always costs to be counted and risks assessed, it’s not cost free like your time in Congress. And, how do you get the EU i.e. Germany to do anything to push back on China? You will be pushing up daisies before that happens.

        In the city of San Francisco we have drunk to the very dregs of infamy. We have had vile officials, we have had rotten newspapers. But we have had nothing so vile, nothing so low, nothing so debased, nothing so infamous in San Francisco as Harrison Gray Otis. He sits there in senile dementia with gangrene heart and rotting brain, grimacing at every reform, chattering impotently at all things that are decent, frothing, fuming, violently gibbering, going down to his grave in snarling infamy. . . My friends, he is the one thing that all Californians look at when, in looking at southern California, they see anything that is disgraceful, depraved, corrupt, crooked, and putrescent— THAT is Harrison Gray Otis.

        From Governor Hiram Johnson. Regardless of either’s party affiliation back then it just seems to be an apt description of our present day official from San Francisco.

    I don’t understand this, but it doesn’t sound good. Something along the lines that overnight liquidity financing rates spiked up from a normal 2%-ish to 10% Tues morning, and the Fed had to do its first intervention since Lehman Brothers. Another intervention scheduled for Wed open.

    Possible (partial?) Attribution to
    “Corporations had to withdraw cash from money market funds and bank accounts to make quarterly tax payments, while Treasury buyers had to settle up with Uncle Sam for recent purchases. On Friday alone, about $20.4 billion flowed out of money-market funds,”

    Maybe someone who understands that works can clarify.

      The Fed messed up again by not having enough liquidity in the market to deal with those planned series of events cited in the first post. Basically The Fed didn’t slosh around money proactively, like they should be doing under the current system, so had to do it reactively. The only thing to read here is The Fed continues to not know how to do their job and Bloomberg is getting ahead of the story.

      Overnight Loan investors are lengthening their maturities. Lengthening maturities for them is from 1 day to 30 days. That doesn’t seem like a lot time but consider billions of dollars for banks and institutional investors, both domestic and foreign, and this change moves market.

      I do not think this is a crack in the system but it is the markets telling the Fed they better cut rates this afternoon. Our Fed is operating “behind the curve” in that our central bank is letting the yield curve dictate the Fed’s own actions. “Ahead of the curve” is a fed that leads the market. Never understood why the Fed cant go back to cutting rates between meetings. This would change the dynamics of Monetary Policy

      This will force the EU’s hand in imposing sanctions. EU will have to undercut their industrial ties to Iran, or, at least announce to the public that they are and hope they don’t get caught.

      If you look at Germany, for example, who coordinates their education goals with future industrial needs. When Merkel shut down nuke plants after the irrational reaction of Gerrnans to Fukishima, what happened to all the nuke techs, engineers, scientists who had been educated in the nuke field? Where did they all go?

      Add in the theory that the real reason for the Brexit fiasco is that the EU won’t release the UK because in their plans for a EU army, they want the access to UK nukes.

      I have to look at the possibility that the EU is running the Iran nuke program and that is about to be rooted out and exposed. The pretty bow around the Iran nuke deal package is about to be undone to reveal the ugly truth. POTUS’s ultimate goal is to denuke everyone, IMO. The initial reaction to the Iran deal was for neighboring lands to declare they were going to nuke up in self defense. Good business for nuke tech.

      Timing is good with Brexit, too. Let BoJo go down for delivering a hard Brexit and then expose the corruption. Let whoever takes over deal with it. Could be the same in Italy, since Salvini is now unlinked from any effects from exposure of corruption.

      This is a much better move than a war, if it plays out like I think it’s planned to.

    Patriot or Traitor?

    The government wants to have a different kind of trial. They want to use special procedures they want to be able to close the courtroom, they want the public not to be able to go, know what’s going on.
    And,essentially, the most important fact to the government and this is the thing we have a point of contention on, is that they do not want the jury to be able to consider the motivations.

      The United States today filed a lawsuit against Edward Snowden, a former employee of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA), who published a book entitled Permanent Record in violation of the non-disclosure agreements he signed with both CIA and NSA.

      The lawsuit alleges that Snowden published his book without submitting it to the agencies for pre-publication review, in violation of his express obligations under the agreements he signed. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Snowden has given public speeches on intelligence-related matters, also in violation of his non-disclosure agreements.

      The United States’ lawsuit does not seek to stop or restrict the publication or distribution of Permanent Record. Rather, under well-established Supreme Court precedent, Snepp v. United States, the government seeks to recover all proceeds earned by Snowden

    My son has to write a paper on current events. He saw my recent order “Spygate” on the table and asked me about it. I spoke clearly and with confidence, footnoted every point.

    He then comes downstairs and shows me this

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spygate_(conspiracy_theory)

    pygate is a conspiracy theory initiated by President Donald Trump in May 2018 that the Obama administration had implanted a spy in his 2016 presidential campaign for political purposes.[1][2][3]

    On May 22–23, 2018, Trump made these assertions, without providing evidence, adding that it was done in an effort to help Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton, win the general election. He said this person was paid a “massive amount of money” for doing so.[4][5] In the middle and second half of 2016, Professor Stefan Halper, a longtime confidential source for U.S. intelligence, began working as a secret informant for the FBI, approaching three Trump campaign advisers separately in a covert effort to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections. However, as of May 2018, the Trump administration had produced no evidence that Halper had joined the Trump campaign or acted improperly.[6]

They’re safe enough – we already know about them – and now something must be done to de-rail the narrative that “these people are as virtuous as the new-fallen snow and so Impeachment should continue apace.” There was, and still is, a concentrated conspiracy to overthrow this duly-elected President.

    I’m told that a senior official in the People’s Bank of China said in a recent meeting with foreign counterparts that growth next year below 6% wouldn’t be a problem for the economy.

    Of course there are some leading analysts who have already cut forecasts to the 5.5-6% range, but it’s something else from the central bank: suggests that either there really is political tolerance for considerably slower growth or that the PBoC is trying to make that case.

    @S_Rabinovitch

    Regression of China’s economy towards more of a state-led model continues. In the decade before Xi’s presidency, growth of private-sector investment outstripped that of state investment 90% of the time. Since 2015, state has been on top 75% of the time.

    Most striking right now is that state investment is increasing more quickly even before infrastructure stimulus has kicked in. It’s an indication of how SOEs, including in real estate, have much easier access to funding.

    Food for thought: Ive been a registered Republican for as long as I can remember. Lately Ive been thinking about switching to democrat for the simple reason that I will be able to more easily convince or sway other democrats to my way of thinking. As it is now, when a democrat learns I am Rep. they will automatically tune out any rational thinking I throw at them in favor of thier emotional thinking. Emotional thinking sabotages any possibility of compromise.

      Gee, I hope the Democrats manage to find a candidate who is qualified before November next. But I don’t expect them to do so. I think that the entire world of American politics has changed forever as the result of one man, and they have not and never will. The “Whig Party” died in a similar way and for similar reasons.

    • I’ve NEVER joined a politics party, but have been a conservative since Reagan’s first term. I run rings around my democrat friends in debate as an independent, but they will not be swayed by facts. Anyone who is still firmly in the democrat camp today is either ignorant and / or a captive of cult-like intransigence.

      To paraphrase an old saying – “You can’t use logic to persuade someone to abandon a position when that person did not use logic to arrive at thst position in the first place”

      Frankly, it’s just as effective (and more fun) to simply mock them at this juncture.

      PaulinFL has to register in Florida knowing that is the only way to vote in its closed primaries..The fact that he is registered as a certain party member is necessary to involved in the process in Florida. If he registers as a DIM he can’t participate in the Republican process. He says he believes registering as a Dim would help his argument rather than standing strong in the party of President Trump. I’’d suggest become well versed in President Trump accomplishments.

      If someone is unwilling to accept plain and logical truth, no amount of lying is going to convince them otherwise. Sunlight is the best disinfectant and all you can do is continue to shine the light vigilantly until they run out of places to hide in the dark.
