Firstly the medals, there is a spelling mistake to his surname on the star, his name is spelled without the ‘H’ Calligan, but on the BWM and Victory it is correct; therefore he has two medal index cards which confirms the mistake, so it is an official mistake, so to speak.
What’s Killing America’s Middle Class? By Jim Hightower As the royal triumvirate of Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell continue their perverse quest to turn our America into a gold-plated Trumplandistan for oligarchs, they keep insisting that their blatantly-elitist schemes will magically elevate the middle class and even the poor, delivering a 7-course-dinner to everyone!
Yeah, right – as we’ve now seen from their totally-regressive new tax law, your and my seven-course dinner turns out to be a six-pack and a possum. In fact, as the non-partisan Tax Policy Center reports, 10 years from now, 83 percent of the benefits in the Trump-Ryan-McConnell tax act will be flowing to the wealthiest families, while more than half of America’s middle-income and poor people will actually see their taxes rise during the next decade.
Meanwhile, this egregious giveaway to undeserving corporate elites will add as much as one-and-a-half trillion dollars to the federal deficit. No problem, says the slap-happy triumvirate, for we have a plan to cover the cost of these lavish tax cuts we’ve given to the royals including cuts for the gilded Trump family, which just happens to be one of the act’s top beneficiaries. As Trump himself explained the plan: What we have here is plutocracy in action – the precious few are intentionally knocking down and locking down the many to further enrich themselves.
Pre-Islamic period of Afghanistan Excavations of prehistoric sites by archaeologists such as Louis Dupree and others suggest that the region around Kandahar is one of the oldest human settlements known so far. Early peasant farming villages came into existence in Afghanistan ca. Another Bronze Age village mound site with multiroomed mud-brick buildings dating from the same period sits nearby at Said Qala J. Bronze Age pottery , copper and bronze horse trappings and stone seals were found in the lowermost levels in the nearby cave called Shamshir Ghar Dupree, In the Seistan , southwest of these Kandahar sites, two teams of American archaeologists discovered sites relating to the 2nd millennium B.
Stylistically the finds from Deh Morasi and Said Qala tie in with those of pre- Indus Valley sites and with those of comparable age on the Iranian Plateau and in Central Asia, indicating cultural contacts during this very early age.

There are unisex bathrooms all over already in place which women and men share. And as Kunstler does point out there are already private handicapped stalls. Meanwhile March was the hottest month, again, in recorded history and the Happy Motoring US set a new record for Auto addiction and gasoline consumption. We have new record oil spills and Wall Street teeters on the edge once again. My own family circumstances despite having to leave before the ax hit, then have my IT group offshored, and then being the sole survivor of one of those Corporate axes cutting a whole group of professionals is better than ever.
My family is making and have more money than ever. But so what if the planet goes to hell? Life is about more than money and endless mindless consumption. But on the other hand, even professionals have no real job security. Another Corporate sweep or privatization mania could wipe out our jobs tomorrow. And we know that unless the US, the belly of the beast destroying the planet, wakes up that we will be screwed with wild storms, wildfires, droughts and the lack of mobility to get anywhere when the price of oil inevitably goes up without Green Transit.
This is a real issue, regrettably. A president with a litany of policy failures be it foreign or healthcare is reduced to fighting for a legacy that will allow gay married people to take a cruise ship with new tranny bathrooms to Cuba.
