JUST POTPOURRI



Yes the spacebar is now working. My maven has no idea what he did to restore normalcy. Perhaps it was a correction of an automatic Windows 10 update that seemed also to have sent my 2017 Quicken file into outer space. That too mysteriously reappeared although slightly altered.



Lots of other good news; the new garage door opener now closes when the remote is pressed. Now all I have to do is reprogram the car’s button.



The best news is that Bernice seems to have returned to her true love; being a reporter. See her reports on TAP info Plainfield.



In France in August everyone in Paris especially government workers takes their vacation; leaving the city to tourists. DC likes the idea; Trump will be at Bedminster for the next 17 days for a “working (golf and twitter) vacation”, and this Congress which seems unable to accomplish anything will be in a modified recess. There will be roll call sessions every 3 to 4 days in order to keep Trump from making recess appointments.



However the investigation into Russian involvement in our election is ongoing and may reach Watergate proportions. Then a like to cover up ended with Nixon’s abdication. History can repeat itself.



Perhaps you might find the following by Matthew Rozsa in an article from a site called Salon: "Insofar as Trump most probably would have won the election without Russian interference, he was legitimately elected president (setting aside the question of whether a nationwide popular vote should replace the Electoral College). He is an illegitimate president because his behavior, both during the campaign and in the White House, reveals that he doesn’t respect democratic institutions and has subordinated his own country’s interests to those of a hostile foreign power. 

If Trump is allowed to get away with all his Russia-related chicanery and still be considered a legitimate president, Americans of all political persuasions will have lost something far more precious than any single election." (Matthew Rozsa is a breaking news writer for Salon. He holds an MA in History from Rutgers University-Newark and his work has appeared in Mic, Quartz and MSNBC.)


I have no knowledge of the political orientation or principles involved in SALON but it has a Twitter site.
