Hard to believe!
The 2016 election was corrupted. To its very heart.
Mind boggling that a foreign power had the capacity to do it and did do it.
The question is what do we do? Retaliation in some harsh form is required. Russia cannot be permitted to defecate on us as it did. Otherwise, Putin will be emboldened to attempt bigger and worse things.
I follow William Hackley’s daily activities as reported in the Key West Citizen. Learn some interesting things.
Hackley was a slave owner. What follows occurred this date in 1856.
Hackley sold a lot. Actually, an exchange. The buyer gave the “Negro boy Daniel” in exchange for the lot. Daniel was worth more than the lot. Hackley had to give the buyer an additional $300 to complete the sale.
Daniel’s papers of ownership were put in Hackley’s wife Matilda’s name.
Several hours of fun last night. The ladies cooked for me again. Donna and Terri. Stories from yesterday. Especially concerning New York City. Terri’s home for many years.
It has been a while since I mentioned robots and automation. Both on their way big time!
McDonald’s announced it is replacing 2,500 human cashiers with digital kiosks by the end of 2017. The kiosks already being referred to as Big Mac ATMs.
Not done yet. McDonald’s also announced that Mobile Ordering and Curbside Service will be available at 14,000 locations by the end of 2017 also. Drive Thrus will remain.
It had to come! Did the automation set for implementation arrive several years early because of the cries and demonstrations last year for a $15 an hour minimum wage?
One way or another, the big guys always get the little guys.
Attorney General Sessions is doing everything in his power to put more people in jail. The trend was the other way till Sessions/Trump.
In 1972, for every 100,000 persons, 161 were incarcerated. By 2015, the incarcerated number had moved up to 670. Most of the increase attributed to minor drug offenses.
Sessions does not care the nature of the crime. From his perspective, crime is crime. Throw them all in jail!
Sessions is representative of another time. A southern gentleman from a hundred years ago. A white haired white complexioned Georgia aristocrat.
Perhaps Sessions is bothered by what we have known the past 20 years. The white majority will soon become a minority.
Census Bureau data released thursday indicated whites are the slowest growing group in the United States. The data suggested whites will be relegated to minority status around 2040.
Enjoy your day!
