Mattis on North Korea: US 'must stand ready for WAR'


Movie: Mine Land

Cut the cable so now I just stream videos. Here's a Danish film on the demining business. True story and I think something like 2,000 German POWs were killed or maimed doing it.
As World War II comes to an end, a group of young German POWs are captured by the Danish army and forced to defuse and clear 2 million land mines from the Danish coast. With little to no training, the boys soon discover that the war is far from over. Inspired by true events.

Jeanne Ives?

From WTTW, 
Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, despite buckets of campaign cash, may be in for a primary fight in his 2018 re-election battle for governor. 
Suburban Republican lawmaker Jeanne Ives (Wheaton) is considering getting in the race, citing her frustration with the governor's signing of HB40, a law that will increase access to abortion for state Medicaid recipients and would continue to make abortion legal in Illinois should the U.S. Supreme Court choose to overturn it.
 My first thought's leave Rauner to the GOP and run as a Third Party along Tea Party principles: all responsible fiscal-policies, good-government, and leave the cultural stuff with the culture 'cause there's a limit to what a Governor of Illinois can do.
