    The McGuerins From Brooklyn

    Thanks, I looked at Wiki and some notes I have from a while back. Some of these were combined into other "movies." Ex. Two Knights from Brooklyn seems to be a combination of Two Mugs From Brooklyn and Taxi Mister?. Apparently Two Knights, Two Mugs and Taxi Mister? were not used in Brooklyn Orchid. Guess my question is whether The McGuerins from Brooklyn is parts of others or is totally stand alone?
  2. The McGuerins From Brooklyn is on at 5:00 AM Jan 15/16. There were other movies, of which I have DVD's, that were very similar. I have been told they actually made a movie and then cut it into shorter segments for release again. Question: Is The McGuerins From Brooklyn different from Two Knights From Brooklyn; Two Mugs From Brooklyn; Taxi Mister and Brooklyn Orchid? Put another way, if I have all except The McGuerins, do I also have the McGuerins? Thanks.

    That's a nice car!

    I believe they can be rotated. Not sure though, but may be to replace one that has been damaged without stopping on to use the wheels themselves to "grab" rough terrain, hills, rocks, etc.

    The Appointments - Trump's Swamp

    Mick Mulvaney is being sued over a $2.5 million debt he has publicly said he is not going to pay. Mulvaney is Trump's acting Chief of Staff, OMB Director and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director. He is also being considered for president of USC (not that one, the real one - the University of South Carolina, founded in 1801). https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/old-land-deal-quietly-haunts-mick-mulvaney-as-he-serves-as-trumps-chief-of-staff/2019/01/14/e1d3cd72-07b8-11e9-a3f0-71c95106d96a_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.95ae04f3bd93&wpisrc=nl_headlines&wpmm=1

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    A sizabel number of "Latino people" vote Republican and support Trump. They probably will continue to do so. Hopefully people will not vote for someone just because of their race, ethnic background or gender. McConnel is not taking on the Trump shutdown because he did that once and Trump betrayed him. McConnell is not stupid.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Nippy, Trump dislikes the common man more than anyone else. You ever see him invite them to his resorts, his NYC home or similar? No. You ever see him visiting the common man other than for a PR stunt? No. Does he actually give any of his "9 Billion dollars" to help the common man? No. Trump has learned how to manipulate the common man and they are too dumb to realize it.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    No one disagrees with this per se, not even the most conservative Republicans. BUT, who is going to pay for it and how is it going to be implemented. Then you have to delineate what kind of job, what's adequate, decent home, "good" education, ad infinitum. It should be noted that FDR did not implement very many of these "Rights." The fact that Bernie would send out trash such as this is further proof that he is totally unqualified to be president or even to be in US Senate.

    Noir Alley

    For those who liked His Kind of Woman, Macao is on Monday, Jan 14/15 at 3:45 AM. Somewhat similar to HKW, but not as much humor. I've discussed it in previous posts above.

    2020 Election

    Ocasio-Cortez is hardly an apt example of how the Dems can win back the Senate and the White House while maintaining control of the House. She is an outlier in that her district is extremely liberal and not even representative of NY state and probably not most of NY City. If the Dems focus on O-C and some other "new" Dem faces in the House, they will be in trouble. They still must come up with a national message that will help them to win more governorships, more state offices, more county offices and more federal offices. If they focus on identity politics, they will win a few races, but lose many, many more and the White House. And it still boils down to controlling much more than the White House, as we learned with Obama.

    2020 Election

    Apparently Bernie Sanders still has a lot of support, but (and it is a big but), many people now refer to him as an old white man and would not vote for him. Add in socialist, liberal, failed 2016 campaign, not a real Democrat, etc. and I would say he should bow out now. Hope for a Dem victory and an appointment to some cabinet postition on which to end his political career on a high note.

    2020 Election

    Below is a link to a very good column by Cokie and Steve Roberts as to why the Dems should quite down about impeachment. At this point, talking about it will harm the Dems. It will make it impossible to work with any GOP members of Houe and Senate, not to mention the White House. It will also offend most of the voters. https://www.cleburnetimesreview.com/opinion/steve-cokie-roberts-information-before-impeachment/article_52cc3880-15f0-11e9-a2d0-13b306201b99.html
