Thanks and you as well. I think the old gang has given up on this site. I only come around once in a blue moon to see if this POS is still functional. Surprised that it is. The new site is dead as well though the same few paid shills pushing their agenda. RIP to Yahoo message board. I have been posting here since early 2000. Before that, I was on usenet with my HP200 unix work station and later on using Mosaic. Too bad the Yahoo founders were too comfortable after their $billions payday and allow google to take over. On the other hand Yahoo took AOL's turf right?
As they say: 'To be successful you need friends and to be very successful you need enemies.'
Compare what dominated the news in 1966, 50 years ago.
Abroad, Israel was constantly fighting on the West Bank against Palestinian guerrilla groups and in the air over Syria. It is likely that in another 50 years, the story will remain about the same.
The Middle East in 1966 was going up in flames, just as it is today -- and in many of the same places. The Syrian government was overthrown in a coup. The Saudis, Jordanians and Egyptians were involved in a civil war in Yemen.
The Egyptian government executed Islamists charged with planning a theocratic takeover.
Africa, as today, was wracked by wars or coups in places such as Chad, Ghana, Nigeria and Sudan.
American relations with Russia were tense. Moscow clamped down on dissidents and opposed almost all U.S. initiatives abroad.
The Castro government in Cuba was railing against the United States, outlawing free expression and alleging American interference in Cuba's affairs. The only difference from today was that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro then was a 40-year-old firebrand, not a 90-year-old near-invalid.
Nothing has much changed elsewhere in the world, either. Just as Cyprus today remains a bone of contention between Turkey and Greece, 50 years ago Greek and Turks were meeting to resolve tensions on the divided island. Ditto the ongoing dispute between India and Pakistan, whose leaders met frequently during 1966 following outright war in 1965. ...
Market rallies on do-nuthin' fed on job data. Trump has stopped called out economy very bad and returned to his antipathy with Mexicans and Muslims.
Bill Clinton, Big Money To Leave Foundation If Hillary Clinton Is Elected
NPR - 13 hours ago
Major changes would come to the Clinton Foundation if Hillary Clinton is elected president this fall. Bill Clinton would step down from the foundation board and it would stop accepting money from foreign and corporate sources, the former president told ...
NYPost: Dell receives China's approval for EMC purchase
The Chinese approval is about the last step needed to get the deal closed as Dell has already raised most of the necessary money for the $63B acquisition and received other regulator and shareholder approvals.
Atherton Avenue, 12:19 a.m. A doorbell was heard about 15 minutes ago.
Robleda Drive, 6:27 a.m. An unlocked gray Jeep Cherokee rental cars and its keys were stolen at about 11 p.m. the night before (so said the teenager son.)
Those emails prove that the Clinton Foundation is a private shadow bank to pay for the Clintons Billionaire lifestyle. Worst offender among presidents in history.
His ego will not allow him to quit. He is going to try bullying his way in the debates like he did in GOP primaries. Unfortunately, Hillary has no need to play nice and the jokes will be on Trump's ignorance in all issues outside of how to run a TV show or rip off investors to real estate deals.
Great entertainment this Oct.

The AOL people should rethink the "Conversation" fiasco. Yet, normal for yahoo after the doll took over as CEO, normal as FUBAR.
Hillary Clinton holds a narrow lead over Donald Trump in Arizona, a state where a Democratic presidential nominee has only won once in the last 64 years.
A new survey by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights found the Democratic nominee leading her GOP counterpart by 3 points, 45 percent to 42 percent, in a four-way contest with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and likely Green Party nominee Jill Stein.
