A question from a Town Administrator: I'm wondering how the City of El Paso

can afford another visit from the Supremacist-in-Chief. He already owes the City a substantial amount of money for his last visit and the city has expended hundreds of thousands of dollars in the last few days responding to the terrorist attack. All of the police, fire and emergency personnel who have probably been working 24/7 will have to be on duty again today so that this asshole can strut his stuff.

Cities and towns usually have reserve accounts for emergencies but I bet El Paso's is depleted. The money will have to come from somewhere...and it will likely come from the residents (taxpayers) of El Paso adding insult to injury.

Oh, and BTW, you ask any administrator of a city or town in this country that has a Walmart and they will tell you that that store is one of the biggest drains on municipal public safety resources and that's under normal circumstances.

Melania's Jacket....

Think about that jacket and its message, "I really don't care, do U?", worn on a trip with her husband to the Texas/Mexico border to visit detained children a little over a year ago. I know that hindsight is 20/20 vision, but I think that jacket intentionally and directly telegraphed permission and encouragement to every white supremacist in this country to go to war on latinos and other people of color.

At the time, there was great speculation about why the First Lady would wear a jacket like that on a warm day to visit immigrant children at our border. Some chalked it up to Melania just being stupid and tone deaf, some said she was needling her husband and others (especially in the WH) said it was a jab at the fake news media.

No one, as far as I know said...this is a call to arms, this is your President telling his rabid followers that it's ok to take some of these subhumans out, this is your President telling you directly through his wife that he doesn't care what you do.

Hindsight is 20/20 vision. Think about that jacket today.

Did Donald come up with the jacket idea himself? No. I don't think he's smart enough or subtle enough for that. I think Miller is. I think Bannon is. Put the message on the back of the stupid, immigrant, ex-porn star wife and most people will dismiss it as a terrible gaffe. The people that Miller and Bannon want to reach will get it immediately.

Hindsight is 20/20 vision. They're going to put the flags back at fill staff on 8/8. Don't tell me that's a mistake.

Trump is not going to clean up his act. He can't...

if he does, he'll bore the hell out of his base and piss them off. Then some 8chan nut case will run against him. He's stuck with his base and he's doomed if he doesn't preside over enough bloodletting to satisfy them. The Republican Party has created a monster and I think it's going to devour them.

If we're talking about red flags for mental illness,

there ought to be a big one flying over the White House.

Trump's supporters better wear some kind of identification to that effect next time they

go shopping...something like "I'm with Trump, don't shoot me".

I didn't watch the debate last night...who went after Obama?

My dream

that the democratic debaters who now know in their heart of hearts that they have no chance of winning the nomination are getting together this afternoon and deciding to throw their support to the one among them that they respect and who they think can beat the greatest menace to our republic that we have ever faced.... oh, sorry, I'm just dreaming.

Yohoo!!! Mark Meadows, where are you???

Donald has opened a can of worms with this Baltimore bashing...

simp-in-law and his family have a lot to answer for. Let's keep digging.

They are leaving for six weeks???

Talk about "bad optics". My beloved Democratic Party is screaming about a Russian invasion of our election system and corruption in the Trump administration and they're leaving town? The only possible thing people can take from this is that things are not near as bad as we think they are. The sentinels have abandoned the gates. To me, you don't leave the center of government when the government is in crisis. What happens now? do we hold off on all the court actions to compel witnesses to testify until September? And then, are we going to ask a court with a straight face to expedite matters?

We are either facing a crisis, or we're not. Don't tell me that these people need a vacation. There are millions of people in this country who haven't had a vacation in years. Don't tell me that they have to go back home to "connect" with their constituents, they can do that on the weekends. Pelosi says they need to have a stronger case for impeachment...tell me just how you're going to do that with nobody in Washington to do it.

In case you haven't got my point yet...I think this is a terrible, terrible mistake and it just may be a fatal one when, years from now, we are sifting through the ruins of our democracy.
