Obama had the Post-Racial administration... Trump has the...

... Post-Truth administration ...


How did we elect such a weird man?

His weird handshakes, where he tries to yank the other guy's arm off and pulls them off balance...

His hair. Oh, that hair. The work of an extremely vain man who doesn't have a clue about how fake it looks...

His obesity. The man has gotten truly yuge. Big fat ass. And yet he insists on playing golf without a coat, with photographers around. Doesn't he realize how pathetic his fat ass looks?

His rudeness. Shoving other world leaders out of the way, and then jutting out his chin just like Mussolini. Very weird.

His creepy leering remarks about his own daughter.

His creepy remarks about being a sexual predator on other women, including married women.

The constant exaggerating, lying, conniving.

Now, I can understand a right wing backlash. The pendulum swinging to someone more conservative for the next four or eight years.

But this bag of weirdness? It makes NO sense!

Feds approve $647 million grant for Caltrain electrification project

Source: San Jose Mercury News

In a stunning reversal, the Federal Transit Administration said Monday that it will approve a $647 million grant to electrify Caltrain tracks, nearly doubling capacity on the overburdened San Jose to San Francisco commute route.

The approval comes after months of delays and worries by Caltrain officials and Bay Area leaders that the Trump administration would cancel the grant. If the funding hadn’t been approved by June 30, the $2 billion track electrification project would have lost key construction contracts.

The electrification work will mean faster and more reliable trains on a 51-mile stretch of the Caltrain corridor along the Peninsula, offering more than 110,000 rides per day, up from 60,000. The project will also create 10,000 jobs in California and around the country. The first electric trains are expected to be in service by early 2021, if not sooner, and construction on the project should start in 60 to 90 days.

“This news, quite clearly, is electrifying,” said Silicon Valley Leadership Group CEO Carl Guardino. “This is all the major holidays wrapped into one with a beautiful Caltrain bow around it.”

This indeed is very good news not only for the Caltrain service between SF and Silicon Valley, but also for the California High Speed Rail project which will use the electrified Caltrain route through the Peninsula.

Despite the naysayers, it looks like California may finally catch up with the rest of the civilized world in moving people around in the most efficient manner.

Saudi Arabia Exposed

While Trump is orb fondling and curtsying to the Saudi king, watch this video to see what it is really like to live in that nation...

Mexico agrees to pay...

...for impeachment...

I used to enjoy watching the national news...

But now it's gotten too repulsive every time Trump is shown speaking on screen. His whiny nasal voice, his sniffing and snorting, and even worse, the constant lying and conning. It's revolting.

For a while I was just muting the sound when he came on. But his mug has gotten even redder and uglier with every passing day. So I just turn off the TV entirely.

I'm not about to "tune in, turn on, and drop out", just yet, but I think it's going to be at least four years of getting my news from sources that don't show Trump.

Anyone have suggestions for Trump-free news zones?
