Rocket man

 

Aides warned Trump not to attack North Korea's leader personally before his fiery U.N. address," by LATimes' Brian Bennett: "Senior aides to President Trump repeatedly warned him not to deliver a personal attack on North Korea's leader at the United Nations this week, saying insulting the young despot in such a prominent venue could irreparably escalate tensions and shut off any chance for negotiations to defuse the nuclear crisis. Trump's derisive description of Kim Jong Un as 'Rocket Man' on 'a suicide mission' and his threat to 'totally destroy' North Korea were not in a speech draft that several senior officials reviewed and vetted Monday, the day before Trump gave his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, two U.S. officials said.

The height of ludicrous


Trump also returned to some of his favorite topics. He talked at length about the wall he hopes to build on the Mexican border, insisting it needed to be see-through. Trump said this was because drug dealers are currently using catapults to send 100 pound bags of drugs over the existing concrete wall and they are landing on people’s heads in the United States.

Story  Taming of the Shrew
In the English countryside, a poor tinker named Christopher Sly becomes the target of a prank by a local lord. Finding Sly drunk out of his wits in front of an alehouse, the lord has his men take Sly to his manor, dress him in his finery, and treat him as a lord. When Sly recovers, the men tell him that he is a lord and that he only believes himself to be a tinker because he has been insane for the past several years. Waking in the lord’s bed, Sly at first refuses to accept the men’s story, but when he hears of his “wife,” a pageboy dressed in women’s clothing, he readily agrees that he is the lord they purport him to be. Sly wants to be left alone with his wife, but the servants tell him that a troupe of actors has arrived to present a play for him. The play that Sly watches makes up the main story of The Taming of the Shrew

Wasn't that a hell of a storm

There was loss of life  some needlessly 
Property damage undetermined
Most people in St. Petersburg Pinellas country FL received minor wind storm damage  fences and trees took the brunt of hurricane force winds
96% were out of power in this area for up to six days with the remainder being
serviced by Saturday  Duke Energy did a terrific job of returning electricity to our area  many of the trucks equipment and personnel were from out of state and they all worked hard to return power   
THANK YOU ALL

What a view

What made of

Bomb made from Hyundai & KIA cars

North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China   which is trying to help but with little success 

History repeats itself    Cubas Castro became an embarrassment to Russia after the Cuban missile crisis in 1962

Is the Internet free


I have been using the Internet since the days of text only bulletin boards and three hundred baud communications.   To reduce free electronic expression to a paid luxury is an obvious crime.  This service developed for the military to insure communications should telephone lines be disrupted is now considered another commodity to be sold to the highest bidders.  Is freedom just another word for nothing left to loose?

Lyrics


Kris Kristofferson – Me And Bobby Mcgee Lyrics

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, headin' for the trains,
Feelin' nearly faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
Took us all the way to New Orleans.
Took my harpoon out of my dirty red bandana
And was blowin' sad while Bobby sang the blues,
With them windshield wipers slappin' time and
Bobby clappin' hands we finally sang up every song
That driver knew.

Why Niccolo



Why Niccolo, do we weep? 
Your premise tyme, has vowed to keep, 
Our leader men, safe from harm, 
Their children wander, arm in arm.

In thought's absence, rules prevail, 
Mighty ships, set assail, 
While burning shores, the conquered land, 
'Tis no more, justice grand?
Therefore not, conscience suffice, 

Nations vain, take glory thrice, 
While leaders dead, and leaders gone, 
Perform the function, Avalon.

Amid innocence, all admit, 
With witless wonder, we do permit, 
Days of happiness, with no regret, 
Your premise 
tyme, 'tis well kept.
