Sears and Kmart in serious trouble.  Only one of many retailers that are in trouble.

What is Trump doing about loss of jobs, low income, scant benefits, etc. in retail industry?  NOTHING.

This is where most workers are employed and where the middle class often becomes the middle class.

Secret Service has requested an EXTRA $60,000,000 per year just to cover the Trump family.

Why can't Mr. super-billonaire cover his own costs?  Let taxpayers pay for Washington and official business for Trump.  He pays for his children, his wife and kid staying in NYC and his many, many trips out of town.

And for that the taxpayers are laying out $3 million a pop for his weekly golf rounds.  But don't worry.  He'll make that up by cutting programs for the poor.  What a bunch of hypocrites.

Maybe he'll have golf instruction programs for the poor.

I've read 15 or so of Graham Masterton's books, but I never read Pariah. I had the paperback for awhile, but it got destroyed along with a lot of other books. I enjoyed Masterton's books for the most part, especially those that focused on the various demons and monsters from other cultures. His biggest hit was probably The Manitou. He still writes, but it seems he's just doing standard mysteries now. But I don't think I'd say he was better than King, and I'm not even a big Stephen King fan. I liked Robert McCammon, as far as mainstream horror goes.

yeah, you're right. king is better than masterton but masterton was a lot less long-winded than king. it took me like three weeks to read IT. King is that kinda writer who hasda give you the life histories of his characters before gettin' to the story but masterton entertains and intrigues along the way a lot more than king if you ask me.

 

my all-time masterton favorite is Charnel House. :)

 

also liked Plague a lot.

Gowdy represents the district next to mine.  I used to work in that district and still visit people there quite often.  Gowdy is a typical extreme right wing politician who hates Obama, the Clintons and any Democrat.  Unfortunately, my representative is more extreme than Gowdy.

Not to mention Gowdy is the only person in DC with a worse haircut that Trump.

Gowdy and Trump became close friends at the weekly meetings of the Bad Haircut Club.

Hmm - I figured Olbermann would be in a strait-jacket by now.

 

Still got a job, huh?

I once read a horror paperback called 'Pariah' written by Graham Masterton who was much better than stephen king. :)

'How to Make America a Pariah Again'

Watch the tourism numbers drop off a cliff to Trump's America.

Oh man, it's not Joe Wilson, is it?

 

"You lie!"

No, Wilson is south of me.  His brother is the Atty. Gen. for the state.

My Rep. is Jeff Duncan, a founding member of the Freedom Caucus and very early supporter of Trump.

I sure wish they will get to the conclusion before Trump is re-elected to a second term. Pay these guys as much overtime as is needed,

 

 

At least by 2018! :D

A truly pathetic performance at the hearings by S.C. Congressman Gowdy. Whether there was collusion with the Russians is irrelevant. What matters is the leaks. Is he for real?

When they started investigating Watergate, it took them a long time to get to the conclusion. This Investigation has just started and there's just no telling where it will end. It's much it's much too soon to assume anyone's guilt or innocence.

I can remember when they arrested Haldeman and Ehrlichman and put them in jail. Everybody thought that would be the end of it, but it just kept on going-- right to the top.

I sure wish they will get to the conclusion before Trump is re-elected to a second term. Pay these guys as much overtime as is needed,

Anybody who is familiar with Gowdy's past

performances would not be surprised with

this one.
