An objective survey of Donald Trump’s turgid Tweets, tortuous press briefings and countless cosy Fox TV interviews would lead you to conclude that the word ‘tripe’ was tailor made for him. The only weakness in the description is the absence of dangerous effect and malignant outcomes. For Donald Trump is not just some rich and spoiled bozo shouting his mouth off and being summarily dismissed and ignored by ordinary thinking human beings; he is the elected President of the most powerful, most armed and most dangerous country on the planet. What he says matters and has consequences so his ‘tripe’ is not just ‘silly’ it is also dangerous. Trump will face a re-election campaign next November 2020 and on behalf of all humanity the American people must deliver us from further evil and elect someone who actually speaks sense and promotes values like equality, social solidarity and world peace. That someone is Vermont Senator and self-declared … [Read more...] about No More Tripe With Trump – Time for Sense with Sanders
Real time life insurance leads
Rebekah L. Sanders Arizona Republic Published 1:01 PM EDT Mar 29, 2019 PHOENIX – Retired Christian missionaries Frank and Betty Lusk had no intention of buying another timeshare while on a Caribbean cruise last year. But by the time the trip was over, a charming Diamond Resorts salesman had convinced them to buy a $150,000 timeshare with $19,000 in annual fees. They borrowed against their Phoenix-area retirement home to pay for it, the Lusks said. "They called it a dream holiday. Actually, it was a nightmare," said Frank, 89, who was a music professor. "It was the dumbest thing we ever did." Desperate for a way out, they agreed to an exit company's hefty fees to try to negotiate an end to the contract. Betty, an 88-year-old former librarian, has had insomnia and fainting spells from the stress. She's gone to the hospital several times, she said. A hard sell from Diamond Resorts The Lusks have used timeshares … [Read more...] about Diamond Resorts sells elderly Arizona couple $150,000 timeshare
As far as Alex Pandolfo is concerned, there is nothing more uplifting than choosing how to end life on your own terms. The 64-year-old has travelled the world, won a scholarship to Oxford, spent decades fighting for the working man as a trade union activist and seen his beloved Manchester City lift a Premier League title. Not bad for a kid from Miles Platting who got kicked out of school at 14. He would happily have a few more decades if it were possible, but the fact is that won't happen. Alex has early-onset Alzheimer's disease. The most common type of dementia, it remains incurable and a life-limiting condition. When he was diagnosed, Alex was told he could expect another five to six years. He has now lived four of them. His symptoms are not yet severe, but have already had a significant impact on his quality of life. He now struggles to read and write coherently, to keep track of time and conversations. Crucially, he can't drive, making it more difficult to travel from his home in … [Read more...] about ‘I’ve loved my life
Produced by Christopher Gidez On Aug. 28, 2017, police in upstate Corning, New York, were called to the home of Michele Neurauter. Police found the 46-year-old mother of three hanging from a rope -- an apparent suicide. But Police Chief Jeff Spaulding had doubts, calling a rope mark found on Michele's chin "unsettling." Michele's mother Jeanne Laundy thought she was murdered, and pointed fingers at Neurauter's ex-husband, even though he was more than 2,500 miles away on a job interview in California when Michele was found dead. "I'm thinking it's more than likely Lloyd killed her," Jeanne Laundy told "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty. Lloyd Neurauter was Michele's ex-husband. For five years, the couple had been embroiled in bitter custody battles. Michele accused Lloyd of turning their daughters against her. On the day police found Michele, the couple's 19-year-old middle daughter, Karrie, at college in Rochester, told investigators that over the weekend, her father helped her … [Read more...] about “I had to choose”: Did a father brainwash his daughter to help kill her mother?
There’s a moment in Chiwetel Ejiofor’s new film that is so quick, and so understated, it would be easy to miss it. William Kamkwamba, a teenage engineering prodigy, wins the friendship of local labourers in his Malawian town by fixing their radio. As William coaxes the half-dead batteries back into life, a disembodied voice announces that a plane has hit the Twin Towers. But the local lads don’t care – they just want to listen to the football match. Settling down into a chair in the lavish Bloomsbury hotel suite where Ejiofor is giving interviews to promote The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, which he wrote and directed, I tell the actor that the doment resonated strongly with me. In 2016, I landed in Uganda’s Entebbe Airport soon after a terror attack in Belgium that killed 32 civilians. Had I been at home, the news would have consumed me for days, fuelled by rolling television coverage. Instead, it felt very, very far away. The Boy Who … [Read more...] about “Riling up the divisions between groups has a massive effect”: Chiwetel Ejiofor on privilege, directing and the problem of identity politics
