   Linder  The consensus on "The Five" was that the reporter was inexperienced and the CNN producers should have handed the breaking news off to an experienced reporter. So, maybe CNN producers are inexperienced, too. Oh, to have professional journalism again.

   Rake King  The world is in grave danger with the Malaysian Airliner downing. If Putin is responsible for the pro Russian group having surface to air missiles, and American passengers were aboard, that is an act of War.

   Safetydude  In our world R K, it would be an act of war. In Obamas' world it's ' a man-made contingency'.

   MeiDei  Just watched a video (Ukranian ) of the crash site, they were kind enough to blur the images of the victims. This reminds me of the plane that went down in Russia with the president of Poland and his cabinet aboard - the only difference is the current video does not show armed people firing into the debris & chasing away the few recording it.

   StormCnter  Has everyone noticed how fast Lucianne.com is today? And how speedy The Connection is, too? I've been here for years and I have never seen the site work so quickly and smoothly. Thank you, Luis!

I hope everything is ok in Central GA.

   Mildred  Is anyone else having difficulty accessing Lucianne.com? I am using Explorer 11 and the site is extremely slow and will not record my 'likes.' The Connection was always a long, slow start but the Main Page is even slower this morning and will not load. I'm getting the annoying 'this page won't load' message more often. It usually occurs between 6:30-7 am and the same time in the evening (that's Pacific time ) but today it started immediately when I turned on the computer and is still not loading properly. I'm about to give up and go somewhere else which I don't want to do but this is really bad. Other sites allow you to click on the 'up' icon and it is registered immediately but Lcom has a long wait and then may or may not register your 'like.' I've emailed Luis in the past and he says he's working on it but it doesn't getter better.

   Alice  Not really, Mildred, and it has been long enough that I think quite a few people have seen your post by now. I use Explorer 11 as well, plus a good internet security suite.
It sounds like you might need to clean out some browser stuff, starting with history and cookies. In case you are unfamiliar with that, pressing F1 key might bring up the Microsoft web page 'Help for Internet Explorer' -- it does on my laptop. On that page, the section called 'Security and Privacy Options' has instructive links like 'Delete and manage cookies' and 'Manage and delete your browsing history'. There are multiple paths to the same good security info from that Help page.

   August9  Thank you for your post Mildred --- I was considering posting the same question myself.
In the last few days, the mothersite has been so slow as to be un-readable, (is that a word? )

Also agree with you that the Connection has always been slow!
I will also add that all of my other "bookmarks" load, and perform perfectly normal.

While discussing "un-readable" I would like to remind everyone that proofreading, and spell checking is your friend!
Just in the last week I have seen several posts that, even after reading a few times, left me wondering what they were saying!
One poster miss-spelled the word "fund" twice, leaving the "d" off once, and changing the "u'" to an "i"---neither of these would trigger the spell check

Just Saying...........

   Mildred  Thanks Alice. I do clear the browsing history, cookies and temp files regularly. I once had an internet provider that caused so many problems that I just do the clean up to avoid those problems. I also use CCleaner when Lcom gets so slow or won't load to eliminate that possibility.

August9 I wondered if Lcom does maintenance at the times I've had the slow loading because all my other favorites load in the usual time.

Could someone tell me if having AdBlock or AdFender installed could be responsible by blocking so many of Lcom's ads.

   StormCnter  Mildred, the mother ship has been up and down for most of the day. It's not your computer or your browser. I have three browsers and the down site is the same with each. I don't think Adblock would be giving you Lucianne problems. I have it on all three browsers and I post a lot of articles in the very early morning without trouble. Today has been an exception, however.

   CaptainLibra  I agree. Never seen it so slow as today. On several occasions I have simply given up rather than wait seemingly forever. What's up?

   Mildred  Thanks for your comments. I have seen this happen with more frequency and I have also given up rather than wait. I hope the IT people can solve whatever problems they have been having soon. As I said above, I had an internet provider that caused so many problems, I have since changed to a new provider but feared the new provider was failing also. Love these computers when they work but when they don't, &%q@###

   StormCnter  It's 5:30 AM Texas time and I've been posting articles for two hours. Luis has worked a miracle. The site is speedy and a pleasure to use.

   Straitpath  I am trying to find worthy candidates to whom to contribute. I send only ten dollars and I make it as anonymous as possible. I don't want my ten dollars wasted on multiple pleas for more money. I am going to send money to Justin Amash from Minnesota based on an article at mother site. I am also looking at contributing to Club for Growth. Any more ideas? Thanks.

   StormCnter  Strait, may I suggest Barbara Comstock, candidate in Virginia's 10th district? Barbara has a long and respected record as a GOP conservative and headed the fundraising effort for Scooter Libby's legal expenses. She was head of the Public Affairs Office in the Justice Department during George W.'s administration and is currently a state representative. https://www.barbaracomstockforcongress.c

If you're out there give me an email to me so I know you are OK?
