My Person of the Year 2017....Richard Nixon!

Presidential Anecdotes (Paul F Boller Jr., c – 1981, 1996 – Paperback pp 326-327):

“In 1960 , When Nixon ran for President against Kennedy, … The 1960 election turned out to be extremely close, and there were voting frauds in several states. For a time Nixon considered the possibility of demanding a recount but finally decided against it. “If I were to demand a recount,” he explained, “the organization of the new administration and the orderly transfer of responsibility from the old to the new might be delayed for months. The situation within the entire federal government would be chaotic.” Despite his decision, newsman Earl Mazo launched an investigation of the voting frauds and began running a series of articles about them in the New York Herald Tribune. Early in 1960, after the first four articles had appeared, Nixon invited Mazo to his home for a chat. “Earl,” he said, as they shook hands, “ those are interesting articles you are writing – but no one steals the presidency of the United States” He went on to say that the country would be torn by partisan bitterness if there was an official challenge of the election result and that the damage to America’s foreign relation might be irreparable. ...   Mazo agreed to drop the series! (emphasis added)

Hillary??? Any Democrat??? Never Trumpers??? Even Al (Chad) Gore!!!
                                         When Nixon has you beat…………YIKES

RIP Scalia 1936 - 2016

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.
Heartfelt sympathy to his wife, 9 children, and 36 grandchildren! He will be missed on the court and in the future of our nation! I'm a bit concerned.

The left has reaped what it has sown. Their mindset since 9/11 has always been - we have to, as Europe has, become accustomed to terrorist attacks here at home. This is also the mindset of this administration with it's inability to call it a war on terror and it's incomprehensible belief that al Qaeda and Osama were the end all of Islamic Terror. The Bush administration and the right had it correct. The only way to end Islamic Terrorism is to end the support in the minds and nations that support it. Their great failure was their inability to communicate that belief, allowing the media and the left to co-opt the narrative. And yet, as Eqypt's President demonstrated recently, Bush's vision has proven correct. In spite of Obama who's actions have actually delayed this awakening. Obama should be embracing this vision, not vacationing and pushing for Community College for all!

Iron Lady - Margaret Thatcher dies...RIP

Lady Thatcher will have a full ceremonial funeral, according to the BBC. That is not the same as a state funeral. Downing Street are saying that it will be like the Queen Mother's funeral. Lady Thatcher will not lie in state. Guardian has coverage.

Seriously, Who Would Make a Browser...............

Firefox V 4.0

Who would make a browser without a status bar and why would they do that?

I don't know about them, but there are occasions where a page doesn't load and you have no idea what it is doing, and without the status bar you have one less input to go by.

Seriously, who would make a browser without a status bar, Firefox?
