Via a simple Google search:

Kyrsten Sinema, replacing Jeff Flake of AZ, is the " … first women in the state's 106-yr-old history to take a seat on the floor of the U.S. Senate. "

Go Kyrsten!! [ My niece who resides in Maricopa tells me I will arrive in time to join in the celebration. I expect this to be one of the highlights of my up-and-coming trip! ]

" The 39-year-old congresswoman’s journey from [homeless] sleeping in a vacant service station [and growing up on welfare] to holding a Ph.D., law license and office on Capitol Hill has become a staple of Sinema’s biography. "

It's the rags-to-riches tale. THIS, folks, is a prime example of the American dream! There's still hope.

A response I don't want her to miss!

Aw, Katie … thank you for your wisdom AND your friendship. I can remember a time when I was having financial difficulty and you OFFERED to send me money. I'll NEVER forget that heartfelt generosity! EVER! I was happy to graciously decline that offer, never, ever wishing to take advantage of you.... or anyone else. I could foresee it clear … and all worked out well in the final analysis. I tapped my minimal reserve and eventually repaid myself, conscious of spending! HERE, I want the SFF world to know what you're made of!

My face, indeed, wears the roadmaps of my life … which has been anything but easy. In my latter years, I'm probably more comfortable with myself than I've ever been …. no pretense … no need.

Hats off to YOU, my friend. YOU have heart!

Ozymandias
By Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said —“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

"The Times They Are A-Changin'"

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'

We can still hope that quite a number of the Trumpsters are headed for the dumpsters come Tuesday, Nov 6th.

Then …. follows even greater hope that by 2020 Trump will have his Space Force and the rest of his swamp-feeders will be on the maiden voyage.

Burned to the ground ....

The largest condom factory in the United States burned to the ground. Panic time.

President Trump was awakened at 4 by the telephone.
"Sorry to bother you at this hour, Sir, but this is an emergency!
I've just received word that the Durex factory in Washington has burned
to the ground. It's estimated that the entire USA supply of condoms
will be used up by the end of the week."

Trump: "Oh damn! The economy will never be able to cope with all
those unwanted babies. We'll be ruined. We'll have to ship some in from
Mexico.

Telephone voice says, "Bad idea... The Mexicans will have a field day
with this one. We'll be the laughing stock of the World! What about Canada ?"

Trump: "Okay, I'll give Justin a call and tell him we five
million condoms, ten inches long and three inches thick. That way,
they'll continue to respect us as Americans."

Three days later, a delighted President Trump ran out to open the
first of the 10,000 boxes that had just arrived. He found it full of
condoms, 10 inches long and 3 inches thick, exactly as requested, all
colored with red maple leaves with small writing on each one:


MADE IN CANADA - SIZE: SMALL

The Hill, Oct. 4, 2018:

President Trump mocked former Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) at a campaign rally in Minnesota Thursday for resigning following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

"That guy was wacky. Boy did he fold up like a wet rag, huh?" Trump said at a rally in Rochester in Franken's home state. "He was gone so fast, I don't want to mention Al Franken's name, he was gone so fast," he added.

Franken, who was previously considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate, was accused by eight women of sexual misconduct. Franken announced his resignation in December after facing intense pressure from others within the Democratic caucus.

Franken railed on the Senate floor that some accusations of sexual misconduct against him were not true, while others he remembered differently. He maintained he had done nothing to bring "dishonor" to the Senate since joining the body in 2009 and expressed confidence that an ethics panel would have cleared him.

He also issued a searing indictment of a political system that would force him to relinquish his seat while Trump remained in office. "I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving, while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office," he said ….

Salaries paid to Supreme Court Justices ... on the surface ... .....

Chief Justice = $223.500.00; Associate Justices = $213,900.00 …. and the 'clincher' reads, 'with perks'.

A simple Google search yields the following. Read on. I found it interesting::

"At least five and perhaps as many as eight of the nine members of the U.S. Supreme Court are millionaires according to recently released financial disclosures, and only two hold any consumer debt. Assets are reported in a range making it impossible to say precisely how much each justice is worth, but suffice to say, none of them are hurting financially.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg boasts the highest potential net worth at $18.1 million with Stephen Breyer a close second at $17.1 million. Both were appointed by former President Bill Clinton. However, Ginsburg’s actual net worth may be as low as $4.4 million and Breyer’s as low as $5 million. Federal officials are also exempt from disclosing the value of their homes, making an accurate calculation even more difficult.

After collecting nearly $2 million in book advances, Justice Sonia Sotomayor's assets rose to between $1.7 and $10.3 million, ranking her No. 3 in terms of highest potential net worth. Sotomayor is an appointee of President Barack Obama.

Chief Justice John Roberts, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, possesses one of the court’s most complex financial portfolios. His net worth is valued between $2.8 million and $6.6 million, ranking him No. 4.

As for the rest:

Antonin Scalia, appointed by former President Ronald Reagan, reported a net worth between $1.9 and $4.2 million, ranking him No. 5.

Obama appointee Elena Kagan's assets total between $815,000 and $2.1 million, according to the Center’s analysis, putting her at No. 6.

Clarence Thomas, an appointee of President George H.W. Bush reported between $1.8 million and $715,000, ranking him seventh.

Samuel Alito has not yet filed his 2012 report and sought an extension, but in 2011 the George W. Bush appointee reported between $380,000 and $1.1 million in wealth putting him at No. 8 for maximum potential wealth.

Anthony Kennedy
, appointed by Reagan, reported assets of between $330,000 and $700,000, placing him at No. 9. "

There you have it.
