  • U.S. Politics Part 5: Same old Thread...Just New.

    There's also a great free app called Duolingo that helps you learn a second language.  You get to pick one, with Spanish being one of the options.
    I also totally agree with KingKobra that immersion really helps.  I took Spanish in High School, which is longer ago than I'd like to admit, lol.  But it was amazing how much came back to me after spending a week in Mexico!

    I love this show, and am so glad they've made another season!
    But after watching the preview, I'm not sure if I'm ready!   :o

  • U.S. Politics episode 4: A New Thread

    I just found a new podcast: Slow Burn.  It's about the Nixon administration, and the Watergate scandal.  It tells the story of how everything went down, and what it was like during that time.
    I wasn't alive when all this went down, so this is very interesting to me.  I also think it's very pertinent to current events, so I thought I'd share.

    Ok - so the theory I read was much better articulated, but it basically said that the trusted person Trenton sent that email to was her little brother, Mohammed.  And that by hanging out with Elliot, and asking all those questions, Mohammed was making sure Elliot was the right person to forward Trenton's email to.  The timing of when Elliot and Mohammed meet and the time-stamp of the email Elliot got apparently check out.

    I'm not sure if any of this is true, but I think it makes sense, and is possible.

    Wealthiest country in the history of earth, at it absolute peak, somehow believes it must ask it's poorest citizens accept less so that we can give more to its wealthiest.  Well done Koch brothers.

    I've mentioned this before, but I have MS.  Due to my condition, I am disabled, and therefore have Medicare.  My husband works full-time, but the company he works for is small, so doesn't offer a group medical plan - he has Obamacare coverage.
    I am terrified of what these new tax laws/healthcare cuts will mean my husband and I in the future.

    Sorry to vent - I'm just so horrified by all of this!  The people who voted to pass the 'Donor Relief Act of 2017' are on the wrong side of history.  Greed, and Party Before Country won last night, and I guess I had too much faith that common decency and some semblance of compassion would win out in the end, because today ... I'm just so disheartened.   :(
