How to show you don't understand Unix: put stuff like this all through your code:

blue("%sVariable:" % ts),
green(sguid(self.guid)),
purple(self.name),
"attrs= %s" % self.attrs["attrs"]

because we never send program output to other programs, right?

All Americans should have confidence that our President is free of foreign influence. This is not a Republican or Democratic issue -- it's an American issue. The House also needs such assurances. I don't need to see these returns, but the House certainly does.

That's why I created a petition to Rep. Kevin Brady, Chairman, House Ways and Means, which says:

"Rep. Bill Pascrell requested Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady to ask for Trump's tax returns from the past 10 years. Rep. Brady has done nothing. He must fulfill Rep. Pascrell's request and allow the full Committee to examine Trump's tax returns."

Hi,

Trump has promised to release his taxes, pending an audit. That promise has been renewed recently, but also disavowed. I don't need to see his taxes, but the Senate certainly does. They should review his taxes so they can be assured that there are no problems.

That's why I created a petition to Orrin Hatch, Chair, Senate Finance Committee, which says:

"Trump refuses to release his taxes. Every President in the last 50 years has. The Senate Finance Committee is allowed by law to request his taxes for review. They must do this so that Trump can get a clean bill of health on his taxes. It will benefit all of us, Republican and Democrat."

Thanks!

It's a stupid, useless, and as it happens, illegal executive action. It doesn't even apply to the countries the 9/11 criminals came from. I guess because they have Trump hotels? Maybe the 7 countries could put up a Trump Tower in their capitals and reverse the ban? I only wish I were joking.

I can claim 3 million illegal votes without knowing, but don't worry, I'll prove it later!

Is this a monty python skit? Real life? Who can tell?

"White House press secretary attacks media for accurately reporting inauguration crowds."

So, the press is finally figuring out how to report Trump, about 18 months too late. Too bad.

Well, that didn't take long. Brennan calls it like it is.

If you have not heard of it, the Wall of Honor has one star for every CIA officer who has died in the line of duty. There are no names on it, since in some cases the names could not be released. Ted Gup has a good book on it called "The Book of Honor."

Now, whether or not you like the CIA, the idea of Trump getting up in front of this memorial to talk about his self-obsessions is grotesque.

OK, let's see, you're the President, you've been dumping on CIA for weeks, what do you do? Well:
o go to intelligence agency full of people who know how to estimate crowd size and verify claims, among other things
o spout transparent nonsense easily disproved
o claim the media, who are reporting data easily proved, are liars

What would I plan to do were I working at CIA? Get everything in writing, don't do anything Trump says that sounds even reasonably dicey, assume when the chips are down he'll throw me under the bus, and realize I'm way better off trusting the "liars" in the media than my President. A sad realization I am sure.
