Of course he did. This Trump dude isn't even a good con-man. He had to leave the real-estate con and get into politics. It's time to buy more popcorn. 
 
Buried in the Trump Doing Business with Communist Cuba Story is More Failure
Trump is not the picture of success. He is the picture of a desperate man whose business lost 80% of its value and to fix this, he illegally did business with a dictator and a murderer even though he promised Cubans in Florida that we would keep the embargo going to punish Castro.

Does your baby have colic? I am wondering if you, person who cares for a baby with colic, would try this: take a cool damp cloth, and cover the baby's forehead and eyes and temples so it's cool and NO LIGHT GETS IN. Is that enough emphasis? When I have a migraine, even the slightest amount of light hurts. It's a great relief when there is NO light at all. Maybe your baby (and you!) will feel some kind of relief from this.

Please reply here!

TMI: I had colic for a year, my mother says. Then when was two I complained of a stummy-ache in my head. Cute, right? 
Increasing research indicates that colic in infants is a type of migraine.

I think this is good advice. As I understand, "colic" is a term so broad to be almost useless. There are lots of studies that lights and sounds can make people miserable and so some basic symptom relief like this really makes sense to try.

Some friends of mine had a collicky newborn. Screamed, cried and never slept. Poor thing was miserable. They got her on acid reflux meds and within a week she was a happy, cuddly kid (still an insomniac, but that's different).

A "stummy-ache in your head" is totally adorable. ;)
I also would never wish migraines on anyone, not even my enemies. HUGS.

Since September 9, prisoners are refusing to be slaves. 
The work stoppages and hunger strikes being carried out in prisons across the country show that many of those locked in cages have a political consciousness we must begin to emulate. - 2016/10/09

+Ben Reynolds jr So tell us - would an even harder stint in prison have helped your rehabilitation and return to society? Would spending time on a chain gang pounding rocks made you a better person? Or just more bitter?

Story
Introduction
Are you an artist or you wish you were? Here's what I wish I had read 30 years ago: 

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” ― Ira Glass

Maybe you circled me because of something I wrote? Thanks! 

George Carlin on the Occupy movement. 

Howard Zinn on the 99%  "One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native-born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and unskilled. These groups have resented one another and warred against one another with such vehemence and violence as to obscure their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country."
- Howard Zinn, excerpt from The People's History of the United States  [He died before the Occupy movement was born, but he was there when it was conceived.] 

I believe in simple solutions to complicated problems.
I believe in worker-owned businesses.
I believe we ought to reward production and tax waste.
