This is who we got when Trump was elected



Only meaner and fatter. Not Rodney, his character in Caddyshack

Problems with Texas Child Protective

My granddaughter's dad had another baby. In July he was playing with her and she fell and broke her arm.

The doctor at the hospital notified CPS because they found previous broken bones and both children were removed. In August he was charged with felony injury to a child. He has maintained that he didn't do anything to the baby.

While in foster care, the baby has suffered another broken bone.

Day before yesterday his dad called me and told me that the baby has been diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome. One of the symptoms can be low calcium levels which can cause brittle bones. Hopefully he will have his case dismissed and they will return the kids. It's sad that the baby has this condition but I'm glad it wasn't something that was the dad's fault.

Sometimes when I lose internet connection

I get a cached paged and see a link and don't realize right away that it's old.

So today I was surprised to see:


Harry Enten: Bernie Sanders 2020 is in big trouble

I thought it was from today and was thinking that it sounded like wishful thinking. Then I saw it was from July and thought, "well even the experts can make wrong predictions.

Houston mayor backs Bloomberg and will help launch "Mike for Black America"


Mike Bloomberg picked up the endorsement Thursday of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, who leads the fourth largest city in the nation. The announcement follows his endorsement this week by three members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Their support could help allay any renewed concerns about Bloomberg's use of "stop and frisk" policies while he was the mayor of New York City.

Bloomberg ads a little deceptive

I've been seeing a lot of Bloomberg ads here in Texas and they appear a little deceitful. They use clips of Obama praising Bloomberg for his time of mayor and it makes it appear like Obama is endorsing Bloomberg. As far as I know Obama has not endorsed anyone.

Inside the Trump bubble

As seen on Facebook

Houston mayor's election -. I'm confused

I'm planning on voting for Sylvester Turnerbut I'm a little confused.

Sylvester Turner is running ads that say Tony Buzzbee gave a lot of money to Trump.

Bill King (Republican) has a huge billboard at I-10 and T.C. Jester that says Tony Buzzbee is a Liberal Democ-RAT.

What's up? Who is Tony Buzzbee? Is he a Democrat? Republican? Or just a businessman who gave money to both sides to hedge his bets?

Why Warren can not win the presidency

I saw this in the Biden group but can't post my response there

Why Warren can not win the presidency...................
First: I love Sanders and Warren but for a Democrat to win they need a motivated African-American voters. Last week I saw on MSNBC a poll showing VP Biden has 49% support from the Black voter. Warren and Sanders had 13% and the others less than that. The motivation is just is not there. When Biden is the nominee and Obama comes out for him that will provide the motivation needed.

Answer: The question should be:. If Biden doesn't win the nomination and Warren does, will African Americans a) Vote for Warren in the general, b) Vote for Trump , c) Vote for someone else, d) Who's Elizabeth Warren. If the answer is a or d then this will no matter. And there is pretty good evidence that Elizabeth Warren is leading in the second choice category.

Second a Democrat needs Independent voters support. Sanders has said he is a Socialist. Warrens policies (I like them), will be easy to show as Socialist.

The Independent voter thinks Biden is liberal but don't believe he is Socialist.

Too many Independent voters will hold their nose and vote for Trump. They do not want a Socialist president.

Answer:. Maybe, but there is good evidence that the socialist label isn't what it once was.
