Wednesday, November 22, 2017.  As many go on holiday in the US, school is still in session for the US State Dept (child soldiers) and US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley (reality) while the biggest story for Iraq is that the IMF now controls the country.

John Conyers needs to resign

2017-11-21T18:42:50.507-08:00

John Conyers is a member of the House of Representatives.  His voting record is near flawless.  He can be very personable and I love John Conyers.  I've had nothing but warm encounters with him. So it's not easy to say this but he needs to resign. I heard a headline or two last night but wanted to look into myself.  And I was hoping when I did, I'd find out it was a misunderstanding.  But

Al Franken? Told ya so! Told ya so!

2017-11-20T21:17:58.868-08:00

As Debra Messing’s Grace would say: “Told ya so!  Told ya so!” From Saturday:         As for Al Franken? He's grabbed women for years.  He can't keep his hands off. This took place on the set of SNL for years. It's nothing new. What's different is a woman is finally speaking out and she's got photographic proof. He should resign immediately. He doesn't "adore his wife."
