Target raises minimum wage to $11

There is a need to raise the pay because if you make the lowest pay
you give the lowest sales. Tax burdens or people doing without
not good for the labor force along with other issues.

The fear of consumer based pricing at the towns people low pay.
If the ridding of the insurance mandate, all the workers that can't afford
to use their insurance and will drop their insurance for a bigger
paycheck. Something like 60 million children waged adults
and many businesses having many uninsured workers taking
it easy not wanting to get hurt at work. And the liability issue of
uninsured workers.

Just raise the pay so the workers can just pull out their checkbook
and pay for healthcare. Not kill because the people that can't afford to use it.
Better sales not doing without!

Why can't people see the point? It's about what will happen if they don't.
Minimum wage has not gone up in 10 years. Stagnation is death!

~~~~~Target raises minimum wage to $11 an hour, $15 by 2020
Target is giving its workers a raise.

The company announced Monday that it would increase the minimum hourly wage for all workers to $11 next month.

Target (TGT) also committed to a $15 minimum wage by the end of 2020.
The company says the increase will also apply to the more than 100,000 hourly workers it is hiring for the holidays.

Target has been steadily raising its minimum wage for the past few years. Last year, it hiked the amount to $10 an hour.

The $11 wage is higher than the minimum wage in 48 states, and it matches amounts in Massachusetts and Washington, Target says.

It's also much higher than the current federal minimum wage of $7.25.

Losing health insurance, Labor force, No NASA and Going Backward

Obama Care hurt so many children waged adults that have
insurance but can't afford to use it so why have it, when
you could drop your insurance for a better pay check.
What about those sick people / kids that need it?
"They don't put food on my plate!"

It is rather sick to free up many that feel like they have a right
to have no insurance making others pay for it.
As like having to have car insurance and having to pay more
because of uninsured drivers. You have to have car insurance!
So if they get rid of the mandate then they should also get rid
of the need for car insurance making others pay for it driving 
up cost! Whats bad for the goose is bad for the gander! 

Obama Care is not a problem if you don't make children wages!!!!

And also if the mandate goes away then... Let them throw the poor off 
the cliff to gain seats on office because it helps the rich who vote 
because they have their favor! Republicans don't like the poor 
so off they go, willingly and unwillingly! 
Taking away health care from their own family members. 
How are they going to take care of their kids?
They don't, always against their best interest along with
the family off the cliff!

Having more people loosing their healthcare is a big problem.
It will cause many people to die un-necessary out of not having
a way to fix their problem in a timely manner going into the
emergency room pushing the too late to fit it problem.

Homemade healthcare of superglue, fish antibiotics and peroxide, etc...
But those are the minor fixes there without insurance.

But the point is yes there will be more deaths with no insurance.
But I see it as with no insurance mandate a massive drop as the mass 
of people will drop their insurance for a bigger paycheck being they 
work hard make the same pay so the insurance will be dropped for 
the extra income in the paycheck. That is like 180+ million working class 
people with insurance and likely 60 million are child waged adults. 
They will drop for food money.

Also being that massive drop will pull down the whole healthcare system
as 60 million less paying consumers hit the insurance comps.
What will stand against that kind of hit?

The labor force, workers without insurance that will get hurt at work
sometime is a liability issue. They would go right to workers comp or
sue the workplace to pay the DR bill! 

They will also be less productive as they don't want to get hurt at work.
Anyway you see it no healthcare is death!

Well really just ask what will the workers do with no insurance.
It doesn't take many poor to kill everything over more food money.
Healthcare is not a issue if you make higher wages.
Seems sad to kill healthcare for people that make low pay?
The attitude of repeal and replace Obama Care because of children
waged adults that are hurting from it. 

~~~~~Wellthie, a company that makes Web-based health insurance enrollment support tools, is reaching out to issuers with a new infographic summarizing the characteristics of the remaining uninsured workers.

The firm has used data from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation to show issuers that many of the uninsured workers are young and earn less than 400 percent of the federal poverty level.
http://www.thinkadvisor.com/2016/04/06/who-are-the-working-uninsured-infographic?slreturn=1500985885

More over why go backward on healthcare! Like what if they killed off 
NASA just because of a few explosions. No we go forward moving ahead! 
They fixed what was wrong and moved on with it! So why not work to fix
the issues with Obama Care. Why can't these people just pull out their
checkbook and pay for healthcare not be the children waged adults relying
on Medicaid expansion.

The cost of healthcare is high but also healthcare was affordable in the 
medieval times, cutting cost with a red hot poker! But mostly...
"Person for person, health care in the U.S. costs about twice as much as it 
does in the rest of the developed world. In fact, if our $3 trillion health care 
sector were its own country, it would be the world’s fifth-largest economy."

~~~~~"Doctor who orders an MRI because he owns the Machine!"
http://www.consumerreports.org/croemagazine/2014/11/it-is-time-to-get-mad-about-the-outrageous-cost-of-health-care/index.htm

Being the cost and noting the issue of the many people that don't make
enough pay to use healthcare then the cost of the uninsured with us going
backward to the days when the healthcare system was crashing from the
cost of the poor. Kind of like consumer based pricing on healthcare with
people making $8 after taxes. Low sales is like low heal care it gets lowered
to math the poverty wages of the consumers of they will have nothing.
And many workers go to work unhealthy because they have nothing!

~~~~~Will losing health insurance mean more US deaths? Experts say yes
More deaths

Various studies have looked at whether uninsured people have a higher risk of death. The most cited was published by the American Journal of Public Health in 2009 and found that nearly 45,000 Americans die each year as a direct result of being uninsured.

Dr Andrew Wilper and a team at Harvard Medical School used two main datasets: they took a nationwide US survey of more than 30,000 people conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and checked it against the National Death Index, another national database collected by the CDC.

The two sets of numbers allowed the researchers to examine something called hazard ratios, which are a way to measure risk. For example, if a clinical trial finds that drug users are three times more likely experience a certain side effect, that drug has a hazard ratio of three.

In America, deep inequality can affect the usefulness of data like this. Lots of things can increase an American’s chances of being sick – being a person of color or being poor to name just two – and if those factors overlap with a lack of health insurance, it can be difficult to determine what exactly is affecting an individual’s risk of death.

In the Harvard study, the researchers had 9,000 people in their dataset – enough that they were able to ensure they were really measuring the impact of a lack of health insurance.

The researchers found that a lack of health insurance had a mortality hazard ratio of 1.40. In other words, they concluded that Americans without health insurance were 40% more likely to die than those with it, even after taking into account the individual’s “gender, age, race/ethnicity, poverty income ratio, education, unemployment, smoking, regular alcohol use, self-rated health, physician-rated health and body mass index”.

The researchers calculated that in 2005, lack of health insurance resulted in 44,789 deaths of Americans age 18 to 64.

Hurt over a married woman!

~~~~~Help! I’m In Love With A Married Woman
Question: I found my soul mate. She’s perfect! Only problem is…she’s married.  Every time we say goodbye after a few stolen hours together, my heart breaks knowing she is going back to her husband. The three of us work for the same company. I can’t move to another state or find another job that pays as good. This little secret is killing me. What’s the point in feeling so connected with someone you can’t share your love with? Any advice on coping with this moral dilemma would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

Yangki’s Answer: I won’t try to dismiss your strong feelings for her as a ‘crush’ or an ‘infatuation’ or a ‘passing fascination’, if you feel it’s love, then it’s love and I won’t dispute that. But remember she’s married to someone else and that means that she’s not yours – at least not right now. What’s making you feel so miserable is not because you love a married woman, what’s making you miserable is that you have expectations and those expectations are not being met.

Is she your soul mate? I don’t know. There are all kinds of different soul mates and not all soul mate relationships have to translate into a sexual or romantic relationship.

If you truly believe in your soul that this woman is your soul mate, then what I advice you to do is to quit obsessing over the fact that you can’t be with her in the way your ego wants and instead try to figure out why she came into your life. Is it to remind you that you need to reassess your life and the choices you make? Is it to bring to light things in your love life that may need work? Are you attracted to the idea of having her because she’s unavailable? Are you attracted to her because you are afraid of being in a relationship and she posses no threat? Do you have these feelings because she reminds you of what your soul really longs for? To ignore why you have feelings for this woman would be ignoring what your soul is trying to communicate to you.

Obsessing about the fact that you can’t be with her may be keeping you from finding a wonderful, unattached woman out there-who could be looking for you too; someone else who has the same terrific qualities you find attractive in this other woman.

I would not advice you to move especially if you have a job you love and has lots of career prospects. What I’d advice you to do is start looking at this woman with different lenses – the lenses of your soul. Treat her with respect and friendly affection and treat those she loves (husband and family) in the same way. You may end up with a friendship that goes on for decades. And remember, lives change over the course of decades. You might find that you’ve fallen out of love with her. She may find herself single again someday. Who knows what the future holds? But for now, do the right thing – which is also the wise thing to do.

Walmart not hiring holiday workers, will give extra hours to existing workers instead

~~~~~The holidays are right around the corner, but Walmart won't be hiring for help.

The retailer plans to meet its need for extra work during the holiday shopping season by giving existing employees more hours, according to a release from the company.

Hiring seasonal holiday help is a tradition in retail. Walmart rival Target has already announced plans to bring on 100,000 temporary holiday workers.

But Walmart's move is a sign of the tightening labor market which has made it difficult for employers to fill open positions. There were a record number of unfilled job openings nationwide in the latest government reading of the labor market. More than 600,000 of the open positions were from retail.

It also can be seen as part of the effort by Walmart, the nation's largest private sector employer, to make jobs there more attractive and to cutdown on turnover.

The company announced a series of pay raises for its lowest paid employees in early 2015, which took the minimum pay for most employees to $10 an hour by last year, and the average pay for its full-time workers to about $13 an hour. Part-time workers are paid about $10 an hour on average.

For part-time employees, additional hours could increase total pay more than an increase in hourly pay.

Walmart says it employed the same strategy of more hours for existing employees during the holidays last year and "we heard great feedback from our customers and associates," according to Judith McKenna, chief operating officer of Walmart U.S.

Walmart had 1.5 million U.S. employees as of Jan. 31, according to a company filing.
http://www.kjrh.com/news/national/walmart-not-hiring-holiday-workers-will-give-extra-hours-to-existing-workers-instead

Oh how nice of Walmart to care about their workers! BS! To me this is clear as a 
light about the lack of wage growth. I see it as Walmart is looking at a red flag about
a lack of sales this season.  Small towns are declining governed by the lack of wages!
https://www.cnbc.com/2017/08/04/mystery-of-slow-wage-growth-keeps-market-doubting-fed-can-hike-rates.html

These are some links for help finding a job.
I would recommend to get a job now you will have to move to where the money is!
Small towns are NOT raising the pay so there are no sales as people do without.
So you will need to move to a better paying state etc. Just do the research!

Mel Brooks: ‘Donald Trump doesn't scare me. He's a song-and-dance man'



~~~~~Mel Brooks: ‘Donald Trump doesn't scare me. He's a song-and-dance man'  On Sunday night, the legendary director, producer, screenwriter, gag writer, standup comic, composer, impressionist and drummer Mel Brooks will be honoured for a lifetime of comedic excellence by Bafta. Noting that an awful lot of great British comics – Morecambe and Wise, the two Ronnies, even Rowan Atkinson – never made it big in the US, Brooks says, “I was happy that they got my work in Britain. And I was surprised.”

Now 90, Brooks (born Melvin Kaminsky) has had a remarkable career that stretches back to the 1950s, when he wrote sketches for the seminal variety programme Your Show of Shows. From there it was on to the classic 007 sendup Get Smart, ebulliently loopy films like The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, and the long-running Broadway musical based on The Producers. For 60 years, Brooks has been one of the most original and admired voices in American comedy. There is no one else quite like him, nor are we likely to see his like again. Bafta seem to understand this.

What does the award mean to him?

“You’re talking Charlie Chaplin, you’re talking Alfred Hitchcock,” he says, holding forth in a typically boisterous Greenwich Village cafe. “Is it special to me? It’s very special.”

Brooks is part of a generation that did not go directly from nursery school to an internship at the New Yorker to a senior vice-presidency at DreamWorks. He graduated summa cum laude from the School of Hard Knocks. Like a lot of poor Jewish kids, he started out working part-time in the garment district. After a year in college, he trained at the Virginia Military Institute down in Dixie. VMI is the venerable institution where roughly 90% of the civil war general Stonewall Jackson’s body is buried. His gangrenous left arm, surgically detached, is buried about 120 miles north in a field outside Fredericksburg, where he was fatally wounded, possibly by his own men. It was a weird war, and VMI is a truly weird destination for a New York Jew, and the whole freaky, Grand Guignol Stonewall Jackson thing sounds like a scene from Young Frankenstein.

From VMI, Brooks went to work for the US army, defusing unexploded bombs. “The bombs were powerful enough to blow up a tank,” he recalls. “Imagine what they could do to you.”

After the war, Brooks made his way into television, still in its embryonic stage, and eventually developed a hugely successful routine with the equally legendary Carl Reiner. The 2000 Year Old Man was a mock interview in which an earnest journalist (Reiner) grilled a primitive humanoid (Brooks) about his experiences. Pressed to identify the greatest invention, the oldest man in the world extolled the virtues of Saran wrap. As they used to say in Brooklyn, oy.

From there it was on to small, arty films, then big, not-so-arty films. Surprisingly, Brooks never expected to go into the movies. His original career path veered towards the rag trade, a common destination for poor kids from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where he grew up. Williamsburg today is the kind of place where every cafe has two German DJs creating evanescent sonic art while the four patrons – two graphic designers, a choreographer and a guy who restores vintage ouds – sip their piquant cappuccinos.

The Williamsburg of Brooks’ youth predates hipsterism, irony and Teutonic sonic art. He recalls, with pride, growing up in a tenement where “everyone slept in a single bedroom and everyone had a job in the garment district. There were a million kids and we all played in the street where you never had to worry about getting hit by a car because there were no cars.”

Brooks had a life-altering epiphany when his Uncle Joe, a cabbie who used to snag tickets to Broadway shows, took him to his first musical. “It was Anything Goes. It was one of Cole Porter’s greatest shows. Songs like All Through the Night and You’re the Top.” Ethel Merman right up there on the stage. Even then I thought she was a bit loud. I was a nine-year-old kid. I was spellbound. When the show was over, I told my uncle: ‘I’m not going into the garment business. The theatre is where I live or die.’”

In the end, movies were more of a detour than a dream come true. “Movies were great to go to when I was a kid,” he says. “But they were never as exciting and palpable and thrilling as a Broadway musical. For me, back then, movies rated a 20 and Broadway rated an 80.”

And Broadway today? The Broadway of Wicked and Mamma Mia and Cats

“Fifty-fifty,” he replies.

Brooks is by turns funny, ironic, sentimental and nostalgic. He loves to talk shop. He adores Billy Wilder, Martin Scorsese and James Whale, who made the classic 1930s horror movies that Brooks both parodies and honours in Young Frankenstein. He is envious of Hitchcock, in part because Hitchcock only used stunning-looking leading men in his films (Cary Grant, Gregory Peck), pairing them with stunning-looking women (Grace Kelly, Eva Marie Saint). Brooks did not have this luxury. In his opinion, Hitchcock is “the greatest director ever. The stories, the way he set up shots, everything.” Yet Hitchcock never got the respect he deserved. “In France they worshipped Hitchcock,” Brooks says. “But as he once told me, ‘In England and America they view me as an entertainer.’”

Brooks’ heyday as a filmmaker was in the 1960s and 1970s, when the machiavellian Richard Nixon was running the show. Laughs were hard to come by in the Nixon years; basically it was just Brooks and Woody Allen holding the fort. Brooks’ films were never overtly political, yet today both Blazing Saddles and The Producers seem astonishingly timely.

In the former, a charismatic black man wanders into a miserable community, unites the races in their fight against their common enemy – ruthless capitalists and crooked politicians – and then rides off into the sunset. Which sounds just a wee bit like the arc of Barack Obama’s career.

The Producers, a film about two men who concoct a plot to make the worst musical ever – Springtime for Hitler – and then end up doing hard time when the play is an unexpected success, seems shockingly resonant in the era of The Donald and The Ivanka and The Melania and The Jared.

“The whole thing is crazy,” he says. “Trump was never a politician. He was never a senator. I don’t think he was ever president of his high-school class. And then he got himself elected president of the United States. He didn’t expect to win. He didn’t take it seriously. Three hundred million Americans didn’t take it seriously. Now they do.”

Brooks, who views Trump’s anti-Muslim travel ban as poorly planned and poorly executed – his parents came to the US as kids – does not revile the new president in the kneejerk way most movie people do. “Trump doesn’t scare me,” he says. “He’s a song-and-dance man. Pence [the vice-president] and Bannon [Trump’s scheming henchman, a kind of Dick Cheney without the radiant, cherubic charm], those guys make me nervous.” He adds: “We are not talking about Athenian democracy here.”

When asked if he was ever tempted to make a “serious” film the way Allen did with Interiors and a few other exquisitely lugubrious affairs, Brooks mentions Gene Hackman’s unexpectedly hilarious turn as a daft, blind monk who befriends the hapless monster in Young Frankenstein. He pours hot soup into the monster’s lap, smashes his wine glass and sets his thumb on fire. When the hideous creature races off, bellowing in pain, Hackman cries out: “Where are you going? I was going to make espresso.” This may be the funniest line in all of Brooks’ oeuvre.

So why didn’t Hackman make more comedies? “I talked to Gene about that. He had a sensationally sly gift. But it’s all baggage. Once they (Hollywood) see what you can do, that’s all that they’ll let you do. I could produce The Elephant Man as part of Brooksfilms. But Mel Brooks couldn’t direct The Elephant Man. I had baggage.”

Brooks made staggering amounts of money from films with tiny budgets. But money was not always easy to raise, because his films were quirky, goofy. He recalls his duplicity when trying to bankroll Young Frankenstein, which earned $86.3m on a budget of $2.8m.

“At the end of the meeting, when I had them sold, I walked over to the door, turned around said, ‘By the way, the film’s in black-and-white.’ Then I quickly slammed the door and ran down the hall, followed by a hundred Jewish guys screaming: ‘No money! No deal. No black-and-white!’”

If Amazon or Netflix gave him $50m today, no strings attached, what film would he make? “Spaceballs 2,” he says. There is no evidence that he is joking.

Brooks had the good fortune to work with a cadre of peerless comic talents: Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Zero Mostel, Harvey Korman. Mostly born after him, they are all gone. Outliving your friends is no picnic. “I think about them plenty of the time. But I don’t think about them all of the time. That would be too much.” Asked about his wife, the actor Anne Bancroft, who died in 2005, he says: “Was she funny? Yes, she was very funny. But the best thing she ever said was when she told an interviewer, ‘My life starts when I hear his key in the door.’”

There was a time when Brooks’ films were viewed by snooty critics as vulgar, sexist and sophomoric. Most of these critics are now dead, though presumably still snooty. Viewed today, the films seem daring and clever and even sophisticated, while still being vulgar and sophomoric and insufficiently respectful toward women and minorities – though all in an endearing, high-class way. The films contain inspired, theatre-of-the-absurd moments such as the climactic scene in Blazing Saddles in which a raucous, Wild West fistfight erupts on to a sound stage where a campy musical is being filmed. At this point, the villain (Korman) hails a cab and tells the driver: “Drive me off this picture.” He is then driven to Mann’s Chinese Theater, where Blazing Saddles, not yet completed, is being screened. And there he is gunned down.

It is a finale that seamlessly fuses Luigi Pirandello and Jean-Luc Godard with Eugene Ionesco and Groucho Marx. It is the kind of ingenious, postmodern material you rarely get in Adam Sandler films. “I do 85% for the audience, and 15% for myself,” Brooks says. “‘Drive me off this picture’ was for me.”

Asked to single out the best joke he ever wrote, Brooks says: “My favourite line is more emotional. It’s the scene at the end of Blazing Saddles when Gene Wilder asks Cleavon Little where he’s headed next. And Cleavon says, ‘Nowhere special.’ And Gene says: ‘Nowhere special. That’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go.’”

The conversation eventually returns to New York, “the most exciting city in the world,” and particularly Broadway, from top to bottom the most amazing thoroughfare known to man. Brooks loved the city growing up, and he loves it now. It’s a city that is hard not to love, even though “you have to go all the way over to Katz’s on Houston Street to get a legitimate corned-beef sandwich now that the Carnegie Deli has closed.”

That said, Brooks has made his home in Santa Monica for a long, long time. When he first went to California decades ago, it was viewed by many Americans as paradise. In Donald Trump’s Amerika, it still is. “Let’s say you were a pigeon and you landed on a rooftop in New York,” he says. “You’d find other pigeons and you’d find yourself some peanuts down in the park and you’d have yourself a wonderful time. But if you were a pigeon and you flew to California, you’d never fly again. Where would you go?”

Donald Trump Schizoid Man



You should not take my word for it, just ask any Psychologist about Donald Trump.
Ever notice how he sits with his hands held together and body all tightened up.
Ever asked why? Something to hide?

I had seen him in a interview once when he was getting all fired up over
something and in the interview he had a wobble, back and forth.
In Psychology you learn the clear signs of a involuntary body 
movements. A wobble, back and forth is a serious sign of a big ill!
Parkinsonian type symptoms and I am not talking about a simple eye 
twitch that is a sign of a breakdown coming, as it is a sign of your nerves 
coming unglued. A breakdown has a precursor called growth afterward, 
it's ok! But wobbling back and forth is a clear sign of a big ill!
Not forthcoming as a eye twitch, but already there shown by the wobble.

If Donald has that movement that does point to why the body posture
to control himself. It also says he had some coaching about it for
a better view on him for being on the TV.

~~~~~ Donald Trump has 'dangerous mental illness', say psychiatry 
experts at Yale conference

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University.

Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.

Speaking at the conference at Yale’s School of Medicine on Thursday, one of the mental health professionals, Dr John Gartner, a practising psychotherapist who advised psychiatric residents at Johns Hopkins University Medical School until 2015, said: “We have an ethical responsibility to warn the public about Donald Trump's dangerous mental illness.”

Dr Gartner, who is also a founding member of Duty to Warn, an organisation of several dozen mental health professionals who think Mr Trump is mentally unfit to be president, said the President's statement about having the largest crowd at an inauguration was just one of many that served as warnings of a larger problem.

“Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was President. If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that’s delusional,” he added.

Chairing the event, Dr Bandy Lee, assistant clinical professor in the Yale Department of Psychiatry, said: “As some prominent psychiatrists have noted, [Trump’s mental health] is the elephant in the room. I think the public is really starting to catch on and widely talk about this now.”

James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr Trump.

“I’ve worked with some of the most dangerous people our society produces, directing mental health programmes in prisons,” he said.

“I’ve worked with murderers and rapists. I can recognise dangerousness from a mile away. You don’t have to be an expert on dangerousness or spend fifty years studying it like I have in order to know how dangerous this man is.”

Dr Gartner started an online petition earlier this year on calling for Mr Trump to be removed from office, which claims that he is “psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President”. The petition has so far garnered more than 41,000 signatures.

It states: “We, the undersigned mental health professionals (please state your degree), believe in our professional judgment that Donald Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States.

“And we respectfully request he be removed from office, according to article 4 of the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which states that the president will be replaced if he is 'unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office'."

The claims made in the conference have drawn criticism from some in the psychiatric establishment, who say they violate the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which states psychiatrists are not to give professional opinions on people they have not personally examined.

They have also been condemned by Republicans, including Connecticut Republican Party Chairman JR Romano, who accused the group of “throwing ethical standards out the window because they cannot accept the election results.”

Responding to the criticism, Dr Gartner said: “This notion that you need to personally interview someone to form a diagnosis actually doesn’t make a whole lotta sense. For one thing, research shows that the psychiatric interview is the least statistical reliable way to make a diagnosis.”

A spokesperson for Yale University told The Independent the panel at the conference abided by the Goldwater rule during the discussions, but that the organiser was "troubled" by the "silencing of debate".

~~~~~Shaking hands is ‘barbaric’: Donald Trump, the germaphobe in chief
Trump added, “I’m also very much of a germaphobe, by the way, believe me.”
(The audience, according to the transcript of the news conference, laughed.)
Trump is keen to avoid microbes, particularly those transmitted via touch.
He is not alone in the world of celebrities and politicians, some of whom have
been labeled germaphobes of varying degrees. Toward the end of his life, billionaire
Howard Hughes holed himself in dark hotel rooms to dodge perceived germ threats.
Television host Howie Mandel, who has spoken about struggling with germ fears,
handles his anxiety with a far less extreme method:
Mandel rarely shakes hands, preferring the fist bump.

For an TV interviewer it would be worth it to focus on Donald's body movements
and get him all fired up. I am sure you will get it on tape!!!!

All of this is something you need to talk to a Psychologist about.
find out yourself! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d54HELy_ams

I have to talk about this, being I sure can see more Schizoid people voting for
him because he's just like them! Now having a bunch of people wobbling!
And also willing to go off the cliff with him to their death expecting everyone
else to do the same! Cutting off your leg to save your toe!

It is common to have rich people being Schizoid. It's the love of having power
over people feeding the mania. Paranoia like a over alertness over their fiances etc.
They get rich that way. You can't have power over someone being a Dishwasher!

Remember Bush W. Bush the guy that had a DUI and lived in Texas.
A drunk like many of them are... So they voted him in.
This could be the same with Trump!

So why just sit there and do nothing and just let a nut walk right in!
Trump could get in office don't think there are not big numbers of
stupid people voting out there like it was for Bush!

You need to ask do you trust Trump being unstable with his actions with other
countries being over touchy. To start a war or a terrorist action over a cartoon
with Trump running around with his "Blah, Blah, Blah." Not good!

The stocks will take a hit when it drops. Cut taxes is less income for the peole that
take in more tax help than they pay out in taxes. Cutting taxes hurts the poor!
Getting rid of the mandate for insurance letting the many willing to have nothing
to make us all have nothing along with them! Sixty million people dropping their
insurance for a bigger paycheck killing insurance companies.

Making America a trailer park again! Like a big sign in front that says "KEEP OUT!"
Stock holders don't like to see America being ran like a small town! They have nothing!

~~~~~Donald Trump Exhibiting Discernable, Clear Signs of Clinical 
Mental Instability, Scores of Skeletons In His Closet, De Facto 'Disqualified' 
To Run for President

PART 3 - CONCLUSION
Considering all the facts, including his evident mental instability, 
his insatiable propensity to attacks others, his infamous bad temper, 
his narcissism, his megalomania, his similarities to some of histories worst, 
most vile despots, his apparent racism, the list could go on and on). 
Do you really want this man representing America as President or, 
for that matter, having any real influence whatsoever in a nation 
that's already too politically polarized to properly function?

Donald Trump is an embarrassment to himself and the nation. 
I say we purge and fire him from the national narrative altogether. 
Donald Trump, "Your Fired."

Students Killed In Crash

It's always hard to take the loss I had such many times in my life.

MHS last year.

To to all respects to the family for their loss and the kids dealing with
it! I stand by you!

~~~~~NSU Remembers Students Killed In Crash.
AHLEQUAH, Oklahoma -
A prayer vigil was held Monday night for five Northeastern State University students killed in a car crash on Sunday.

Hundreds of students gathered to remember the five students who lost their lives in a deadly crash this weekend.

“It's sad just to hear about any of your classmates passing away whether you know them or not just because your heart hurts,” said Chase McNutt.

McNutt and Drake Walls were pledge brothers of Kappa Sigma. The brothers say it was so hard to hear the news especially after singing happy birthday to Walls an hour before.

“It's pretty surreal,” said Trevor Lindley. “It just goes to show you could be happy and then be gone.”

According to OHP, Walls, Donovan Caldwell, Jessica Swartwout, Lily Murphy and Rhianna Seely died when their pickup crashed through a guardrail and drove off of Welling Bridge in Cherokee County.

Faculty and staff at the college say this is a tragic loss for their community.

Many students tonight told me that the five killed were incredibly outgoing and that they will remember the fun memories they shared with them while they were here.

Many of the Students say they just couldn't believe it when they heard the news, trying to comprehend why five young lives were lost so soon.

“My roommate said there was an accident and she started telling me, but I was still, couldn’t believe it,” said one student. “I just couldn't understand it.”

Her friend added, “You know we all said see you later because we thought we would but now we can’t.”

OHP says the cause of the crash and the condition of the driver prior to the crash are still under investigation.
