… Not Hardly ! [#Boston Globe editorial]][#iran nuclear negotiations]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 9th,2016

.. the Boston Globe seems to have a serious burr in its saddle .

.. their editorial page had a serious temper tantrum tirade over the letter that the Senate GOP sent to the leaders of Iran over the Nuclear Sanctions negotiations . They thought that they were ripping the seaators a new one over it all . Well , they ended up looking like a bunch of powerless idiots in the process …

.. the Senators are not a bunch of mindless knomes . They are not put there in the Senate for window dressing . They aer public servants themselves . They aer also part of a co — equal branch of government . so they have every right to speak their minds . They can do it individually , or they can do it collectively . The proceedings over the Kyoto Treaty debate are a classic case in point …

.. Bill Clinton ‘ s people were negotiating a potential treaty over the global warming debate . It was highly unpopular to say the least . Even the DummyCraps did not like it , to a man and a woman . So , since the GOP controlled the chamber , and after lack of consultation ., the Senate GOP leadership decided to send Clinton a message : a Sense of the Senate resolution , with debate by all sides included [in public] …

.. well , that resolution was adopted by a 95 to 0 vote . The Kyoto Treaty would have been thoroughly rejected and discredited here in the United States . Ergo , it was never submitted to the Us sENATE for ratification . The Administration well knoew what would happen if it did …

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — From as close as Manhattan and Staten Island to the far reaches of Afghanistan, hearts have been touched by an Advance story about disabled Vietnam veteran Michael Sulsona of Graniteville. He was helped recently by three Lowe’s Home Improvement Center employees after his wheelchair fell apart in the Mariners Harbor store.

Sulsona, who lost both of his legs after stepping on a land mine in Vietnam 40 years ago, was the recipient of a random act of kindness on July 7 after his wheelchair broke. After seeing what happened, three employees at the store told him, “we’re not leaving here until the wheelchair is fixed,” and proceeded to repair the broken parts.

The Advance initially published a letter Sulsona wrote to the “good news editor” thanking the Lowe’s employees’ for their good deed. The Advance then wrote subsequent stories about Sulsona.

Soon after, dozens of news and social media outlets picked up the newspaper’s stories about Sulsona, who had been waiting two years for a replacement wheelchair from the Veterans Affairs (VA). While the VA came through this week with a new wheelchair for Sulsona, his initial story of appreciation went global.

.. LEC here again — thank you , Michael Sulsona , for your service and your dedication to our country . Also , thank you to Lowe ‘ s Home improvement Centers for those three people that they brought on staff that stepped up to the call …
