Crimes Against Humanity

Crimes against humanity. After reading the definition, it appears to be an act that harms a certain group or groups of civilian population, either by an individual or a group that conspires to do so. The people harmed could include people of a certain religion, ethnic origin, sexual preference, age, gender or economic levels. This leads me to wonder if Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell could be guilty of this crime. I realize this is a stupid question, as Trump would just pardon them.

Who is to blame

Who is to blame for the situation this country is in? I feel it may be the Democrats who became Republican.
The people who lost a job when the mills closed and said there is nothing else I can do. The people who
were no longer needed because of automation who said I might as well give up. The people who decided
that their neighborhood was unlivable because people of different ethnic origin, religion or race bought
homes there. The people who changed to conservatives because the liberals wanted to take away some
their gun rights. After all their guns defined who they were. Then a snake oil sales man came along and
told them that he would make America great again. Bring the mills back, deport all the immigrants and anything else
your heart desires. Trust me he promised. True Democrats are progressives who accept that you canít roll
back time. As the world changes so must the people who live in it. I only hope these people come to that
realization before this country becomes a third world country, or worse, a dictatorship.

Pass word

Has any one else had trouble with their pass word?

Old saying

I remember an old saying he can lie faster then a dog can trot. Remind you of any one?

Like a old west novel.

The rich and powerful man comes to town. He promises the ordinary town folk a wonderful future if they elect him mayor. They believe him and he becomes mayor. The mayor then replaces the town council with out side people and family. Gets ride of the sheriff and judge and replaces them with his hand picked people. He tries to discredit the newspaper. He makes new rules and regulations.
This remind you of any one? At this point the person of strength and resolve arrives to save the day. I guess it takes some time for that person to arrive.

Only people with cats will understand.

Not political just for laughs. People who have cats will under stand. My wife got some thick plush chair pads yesterday. You know to freshen up the chairs for spring. She no longer has her chair. Seems the cat feels that new pad was put there just for Her.

The first Korean War

Who remembers the Korean War? The Chinese provided ground forces and Russia air power. Stall mate but no truce was ever signed. If North Korea makes first strike and we bomb the hell out of them China may let it pass but if we invade then it might just be world war 3. My worst fear is Trump is too stupid and over steps common sense. The second fear is when he see what he has got this country into he will sell the farm to appease China and say he made a great deal.

Not me.

Every day I hear more Trump voters saying not me I thought he meant the other people.

A conversation

I got a phone call yesterday. The person introduced him self and said he had important information he wanted to share. He then said the name of some organization which I can't remember and they supported President Trump. I said hold it any thing you tell me would be a lie and not even an amusing one. He came back with President Trump doesn't lie. I said see I told you you would tell me a lie and then hung up.

Another reason for Trump to admire Putin

I read in the paper where Russia is moving to decriminalize domestic violence. Putin approves this measure. I am quite sure this will make Trump happy as he just cut the grant program by the Office of Violence against Women which worked to reduce domestic violence and sexual assault. I wonder if the women who voted for him like to be slapped around and assaulted?
