I just found out the DNC has disassociated itself from the leaders of the Women's March until such time those leaders denounce Farrakhan and his antisemitism or the leadership changes. (Timika - their leader - praised him as a G.O.A.T. and will not denounce or disassociate.)

When interviewed, she claimed as long as her people were at his events she would be. But that does not mean she should praise him. She doesn't see the difference or shares his beliefs blaming the Jewish people as slave masters - the only ones who are like that are the Trump/Kushner/Netanyahu folks.

"Fortune.com reported on Jan. 11 that S&P Global Ratings estimated the shutdown had cost the economy $3.7 billion, with the cost to exceed $6 billion if the government doesn’t reopen by Jan. 25." What about the interest on unpaid debt? What about the impact to the economy? What about the long term credit damage to those late on bills and the resulting negative impact on the economy? It's going to be far greater than $3.7 billion.

"The filings describe a curious arrangement between the head of the Super PAC and a firm it was doing work with. The Super PAC gave $19 million to this firm, and then the firm took a 6 percent commission on that money. However, half of that 6 percent commission would then be “held” for and eventually provided to the head of the Super PAC. (This last part of the deal was not in the written contract.)"

“I’ve always been fascinated by traitors. They consider themselves highly intelligent, yet fail to understand how likely they are to be caught. When they are, they become men without a home, having betrayed their countrymen and been used by an enemy. So it will be with this one.”

Employees of the U.S. Coast #Guard who are facing a long U.S. #government #shutdown just received a #suggestion: To get by without pay, consider holding a garage sale, babysitting, dog-walking or serving as a “mystery shopper.”
