Donald Trump does not think the investigations is

illegitimate, he does not think it is corrupt.

He KNOWS that they will find him and family members guilty.

Stopping this investigations is an admission of guilt.

So Trump has extended one of his favorite lies.

He has been saying "many people are saying" for quite awhile. Today, I heard him say "many lawyers are saying" about the Mueller probe. I am pretty sure any lawyer who agrees with Trump is being paid (or hoping to be paid) by Trump. I would say I hope they get their money upfront, but anyone who works for him deserves to get screwed.

I just watched Bannon ranting about the Romneys

at a Roy Moore rally. Did I miss that there was a Biggest Hypocrite in The World Contest?????

So I got an email from the Trump people.

I have no idea why. There was one question about job performance and I chose other which gave me a chance to elaborate.
I was great. I was both brutal and eloquent. I used words like "liar", "bigot" and "incompetent". I insulted his intelligence, his lack of ethics and the mentioned the truly horrible people in his administration. I wrote about the environment, our decline in world respect and the fear of getting us all killed.

I ended with the suggestion to remove me from their mailing list.


I really wanted to send it but could not send money.

My husband asked that I only not make any overt threats.

Looking through Christmas cards from last year gave me an idea.

I had a card from the Obamas ( I have considered framing the photo). Why don't we all send the Obamas a Christmas card to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave Washington DC 20500 and add Please Forward....

What do you think???

I can make this personal.

I finished surgery, chemo and radiation for breast cancer in 2012. I was still working and had good insurance.

I said afterwards that I would not go through that again if cancer showed back up.

This bill just passed by Republicans guarantees that since I am now on Medicare, there is no option for me to choose treatment again.

So Trump says he works for American jobs and products

which he doesn't.

It seems in meetings with Russian officials he prefers Russian translators and Russian photographers. Does he not support American translators or American photographers???

I just have to say this

We are bombarded with messages to call our senator to tell him to vote no on this healthcare bill. Well, my senator is Lamar Alexander and he helped write the damn thing and thinks it is wonderful. I am not going to stress my blood pressure contacting him.

So this is what we are doing and please understand that I am not bragging, we needed to do something to help someone. We had a power chair in our basement, a Jazzy chair. It was my father-in-law's. We have cleaned it up, got new batteries (2 of them about $200 a piece. We are donating it to a church that has a program for providing medical equipment to the community. Got it out of the basement and one of the wheels is cracked. We are looking to replace it at about $150.

I cannot give Lamar Alexander a heart or a conscience. I live in his hometown. Helped take care of his mother when she was old. He knows these things. We can do this, we can contribute to someone who needs something we have.

Again, not looking for credit, just feels better to do something you can, than grouch to someone whose mind is closed.

I am no expert

I listened to people on shows this weekend talk about the back channel talks in other administrations. I am not surprised those existed.
It seems to me however, that no one is asking the one thing that concerns me.

MOTIVATION: What is the motivation of the Trump administration to set up secret communications with Russia.??????? Is it for the good of the country (because nothing else they have done is) or for PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL protection.?????

Maybe I am naive and ignorant but I am suspicious of everything they do.

My Senator Lamar Alexander is on the committee to look at the House healthcare bill.

I sent him an email (I cannot speak calmly to him or his office). We have had previous exchanges on other subjects. I was extremely polite but I made a few points for him to consider. My first was that there are no women on this committee, I stated that I had never thought of him as a misogynist but if he did not immediately speak up about it, well....he would make him look guilty.

I shared my years of experience working as an RN at the hospital in his home town. I shared my gratitude for the health insurance I had for my breast cancer treatment.

It seems to me that so many other countries have payment for healthcare figured out and it makes no sense that we cannot.

I also shared that if we really believed in "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness". we should also believe that none of those are possible without believing that access to healthcare we can afford is a RIGHT.

I do not expect him to agree with me, but I had my say.

I did not threaten to work against him if he chose to run again, that is the best I could do.
