Nation Says Goodbye To Carolinas After Trump Says Disaster Response Will Be As Successful As Puerto

Residents are being urged to move somewhere else where they won’t have to worry about disasters that require competent federal government assistance.

My granddaughter got to hear Obama speak today.

She teaches French to first year students in exchange for her Master's Degree tuition at the University of Illinois. She said so many people wanted tickets that they held a lottery and she bought a ticket and was lucky enough to win one. She said that she has always loved to listen to him speak but it is even more awesome when you are there live and people were so raptly listening that his voice was the only thing you heard.

Lordy how I miss him. I miss his smile, his sense of humor, his genuine goodness, his sense of rightness and fairness, his intelligence and most of all, viewing what he was replaced with, his sanity.

At 75, I remember a lot of presidents. I remember and respected Congress people on both sides of the aisle. There was a time when you could respect a Republican even if you disagreed with him/her. Now there are only greedy, power hungry bigots or bizarre twits like Gohmert. The few that still retain a degree of sanity are throwing in the towel. Since they are quitting anyway, they need to grow a pair and vote to save this country from the likes of Kavanaugh. What would it hurt since they are quitting anyway?

Just received a message on my answering machine claiming to be from microsoft.

It was a computor generated voice that said that my windows had been compromised by several foreign countries and my license would be revoked if I did not contact them and change my key. I did not contact them but thought I would let all of you know.

President Donald Trump is a mere 1 percentage point away from former commander in chief Richard Nixon when it comes to the number of Americans who want him impeached, according to a new poll released Friday.

NBC/WSJ poll: Trump's support has gotten deeper -- but not broader

In other words, Trump’s base loves him more than ever. But that base love isn’t translating to better midterm prospects for the GOP.

Two other important points from our poll: One, intensity is still on the Democrats’ side. Sixty-three percent of Democrats register as either a “9” or “10” on a 10-point scale of interest in the midterms, while just 47 percent of Republicans signal the same level of interest. And 42 percent of voters STRONGLY disapprove of Trump’s job, compared with 26 percent who STRONGLY approve.


Hopefully the Dems that strongly disapprove of Trump come out in droves in November

Mexican Boxer Destroys American Fighter Wearing Trump Wall Shorts

In the super-featherweight matchup between American "Lightning" Rod Salka and Mexican boxer Francisco "El Bandido" Vargas, Salka decided to show up wearing some pret-ty Trumpian "America 1st" trunks with a brick wall pattern on them. Classic American subtlety.

The fight was held in Indio, California, and it's safe to say the 35-year-old Pennsylvania native wasn't in the most receptive company to his bullshit. But don't worry; Vargas, 33, did plenty of talking with his hands. Just watch him work Salka like a sack of white rice:

Federal Judge Upholds Massachusettss Assault-Weapons Ban

Massachusetts’ ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines doesn’t violate the Second Amendment of the Constitution, a U.S. judge ruled, handing a victory to gun-control advocates seeking to pass such a law nationwide as deadly mass shootings become commonplace.

"The AR-15 and its analogs, along with large capacity magazines, are simply not weapons within the original meaning of the individual constitutional right to ‘bear arms,’" U.S. District Judge William Young wrote in a decision Thursday in Boston, dismissing a lawsuit over the state law.

Would it be possible to start a Go Fund Me page for McCabe?

I don't know anything about it and wondered if it could be done. I think it would be poetic justice if McCabe ended up richer than if he had kept his pension. A sort of FU to tRump.
