I volunteer at my own daycare center for language skills (no donations, no money requested from others, it's just me paying for my hobby). It is basically me getting the phone numbers from officials who recommend my matching service for the refugees and then I sit down with them, and find them an assisted living person who needs company, and who speaks one of the languages the newcomer either speaks, or will shortly be studying.

This one woman a few weeks ago cried on my shoulder and thanked me for showing her everyone doesn't hate muslims these days.

... I'm like...

She speaks both English and German, is an engineer and she will profit finland very much if she stays here. But she will resent us all if all we show to the prominently outsiders (black hair or even brown is here a clear sign of it) that they are not welcomed and they don't belong here, they will not give a fuck about our society either.

She will probably move on fast, but until then she will be a great sudoku competitor to my former math professor, he for sure needs the English lessons.

And what's a mulligan? And why did my rant end up in this post.

I need a pillow, sorry Shakira for making you read this. Keep those hips shaking!

Ya Trump's a real nightmare, and no one is on-board with the changes he's making.

More interesting tidbits from fake news, https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...-donald-trump/

Quote:
And while Trump's sky-high numbers among Republicans — 89 percent say he's bringing the right kind of change — aren't terribly surprising, the fact that independents are also much more willing to say he will bring the right change rather than the wrong type has to be encouraging for the Trump forces.

There's more good news on that question as you dig into the subgroups. Women believe Trump will bring the right kind of change by an 18-point margin. More than 6 in 10 whites without college degrees say Trump represents the right sort of change. A majority (52 percent) of middle class respondents say the same.

What these numbers tell you is that, for all of the negative noise about Trump coming out of Washington, the big takeaway for many people is that he promised change as a candidate and is working to bring about change as president. Everything else, at least at this point, seems to be so much background noise.

I mean is it really surprising the Republicans who just voted him in favor him? Whats the point of this?

BTW water is wet and the sky is blue.

Over twice as many think he represents the right kind of change, vs. the wrong kind.

Twice as many independents think he represents the right kind of change vs. the wrong kind.

Interesting post - I'm astonished the WaPo would write something like that.

The link you posted has been removed... I guess they just couldn't handle it...!

Sorry, I screwed up the copy and paste, here you go,
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...-donald-trump/

Somehow a colon got put at the end of the URL so that's what was causing the screw up.

Seems like his SOTU went over pretty well with the masses last night, lots of good polls for the Orange One.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/cbs-news...-presidential/

I listened to the whole speech and it was nice, but as usual it's all talk without any real clear cut plans on how to do any of this stuff. I laughed out loud when he talked about the drug problem fading and then going away completely, making statements like that is just such garbage and quite honestly a joke.

He really, really better not get too tied into this insane blow off top stock market rally. If I were him I'd be carefully distancing myself from it.

Sticking with my "At least he ain't Hillary" line, which is still good enough for me at this point.

I lolled at the 91 millions without a job more, but by far this was his best speech.

It was an 11th hour proposal. Was it ever enacted?

Lying about who authorized the Yemen raid, and then blaming the generals that Navy seal owens died. Miss.
