    That's my opinion based on a lot of interviews with people who work and get things done in New York.

    They are like the Bureaucracy in Washington. Ignore it at your own peril.
    That's 1980s bullshit right there

    Ok, you are slinging personal insults now. Time to grow up.

    But Trump did consort with criminals and it seems many of them went to jail! And now he has consorted with Russian mobsters and just may have his ass in a sling!

    Yet they think it is fine.

    Even old Rudy did not agree. The mentality is coming through loud and clear on the rightie posts here.

    I can't believe any of my fellow Boomers are still trying to excuse that shithead.
    And I could care less what you think of Nixon. My opinion is as importatant as yours and I do not go off into conspiracies.

    You READ? And that makes it true? Facts matter,not some BS some one wrote.

    Maybe you should google instead. For me. I remember because my Son and others would have been fodder!

    Woulda,coulda,shoulda. Thanks to LBJ and millions of protesters we have Civil Rights laws, no matter how Republicans try to destroy them.

    Hear the latest? The Labor Department that Trump hand picked with good old Perry as Labor Secretary turned down Trump’s plan to protect coal,saying it would cost consumers over a billion dollars!

    Maybe this little tidbit will make them search a little harder into History.

    Just like his cousin Teddy, Franklyn went against the corruption,even of his own party. Teddy against the 3 giants.

    Even the History channel might help. That is how my Son really began to understand the history of Unions and he was an Officer in one. That was one station he had to have.

    There is so much to learn in History and google has simplified it. But even there you do not just read one source. Even History books have glossed over much.
    Thanks from PACE
