Whatever happened to....................

.....the phrase "these Senators" use on the Senate floor - "My
distinguished Colleague" - during the campaign ?

Watching the partisanship harden in Congress, I've come to believe
candidates ONLY when they say "I'm going to fight for you". It seems
that's all they do, once elected, is fight to maintain a "Party" line.

I wonder if I could have any confidence if they started saying "they
were "going to work for me ?

My favourite political exchange from the 19th Century
by Ziks511 / September 21, 2008 9:18 PM PDT

regrettably from the English Parliament but recorded in Hansard its official record.

"Sir, you will die either of foul disease or upon the gallows."

"That depends, Sir, upon whether I embrace your mistress, or your Principles."

Winston Churchill in 1946 on the Labour Prime Minister Clement Atlee: "He is a sheep in sheep's clothing."

"Everything old is new again" ? either Kander and Ebb, or Bob Fosse.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
