We have until JAN 20th 2017 @ noon to start using the rule, right?

Bow


Ann Coulter, Milo Yiannopoulos, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Kellyanne Conway, dead Andrew Breitbart, dead Anton Scalia...

The list of unelected provocateurs is endless. Hmm

Suppose to snow here in Puget Sound starting at midnight (Mon/Tues am). I'm packing a suitcase and brining Sammy to work with me in our vanpool van tomorrow afternoon when I leave for work. I'll pack for three days and bring enough food for him for three days. Wednesday afternoon/night is supposed to be the worst of it.

If I have fresh clothes (we have a full working gym with showers on campus plus two Corporate Cafeterias) and Sammy and his food and medicines with me, I'll be good. Should be fun. laugh

The forty year effort to force the news industry into a profit model has finally exposed this country to an almost unstoppable fake news industry which will ultimately make it impossible for Americans to determine the credibility of anything they see and hear.
This is the price we pay when EVERYTHING, absolutely EVERYTHING, is tied to PROFIT.
Fake news, especially the state sanctioned kind coming from Russia, is a national security threat with global implications.

How much snow are they expecting?

Enough to make me not want to drive. smile

I'm the main vanpool driver and my backup driver doesn't want to drive in it either. Hmm

Better safe than sorry, brother. Especially for Sammy. smile
