About Me

There are strange things done 'neath the midnight sun By the men who moil for gold. The arctic trails have their secret tales That would make your blood run cold. The northern lights have seen queer sights, But the queerest they ever did see Was that night on the marge of Lake LeBarge I cremated Sam McGee.

Watching Joe Scarborough going on and on about rigging the election makes me want to vomit

Joe S. remember Florida 2000 and bush v Gore? And you were right in the middle
of helping to rig the election by working to stop the count of the vote.

Trump, "I never said Russia did not meddle in the election."

Really? How long will it take some DUers to walk their google poodle or search Youtube
to prove Trump is lying once again?

BTW as been already noted Donny is losing it on twitter from last night on
to this morning. He is shittin' kittens.


Update Trump in July 2016


This goes wide and deep /Manafort (Russian agent) picked Pence for V.P.


The Russians needed people inside of the U.S. to help run their scams and found them in
Team Trump, Fox News, the NRA, and the GOP.

BTW how did McConnell know that if he blocked Garland he would get somebody else to
vote for the SCOTUS?

Russia is way deep into the Republican party.


Before Trump formally announced Pence as his vice presidential candidate, it was Manafort who made sure it happened, The New York Times reported last year.

Trump had hesitated to settle on Pence, who was governor of Indiana. Trump was fielding last-ditch appeals from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and publicly said he had not made a “final, final decision” until advisers like Manafort reminded him of the importance of uniting the GOP around conservative Christian values.

CBS News reported that Pence was Manafort's "first choice" and that Manafort even lied about mechanical problems on Trump's plane to make the soon-to-be GOP nominee stay an extra day in Indiana to get to know Pence. In a phone call, Manafort assured Trump that Pence was the right choice and made a case that won over the real estate tycoon.

Manafort would later downplay his behind-the-scenes choice, telling the Times that Trump never seriously doubted Pence.

Trump has now admitted to Russian attacks on the United States.

"Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President," Trump tweeted as he departed the White House for south Florida, the location of his private Mar-a-Lago club. "The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!"

What happened to the fat kid on his bed in mom's basement in N.J.?

Please tell me how Trump's wall would have kept us safe from all of these shootings?

BTW Fuck the NRA.

Steve Kerr calls for change after shooting in Florida: 'Nothing has been done'


We can vote people in who actually have the courage

“It doesn’t seem to matter to our government that children are being shot to death, day after day in schools. It doesn’t matter that people are being shot at a concert, at a movie theater. Its not enough, apparently, to move our leadership, our government, the people who are running this country to actually do anything. That’s demoralizing.

But we can do something about it. We can vote people in who actually have the courage to protect people’s lives, not just bow down to the NRA because they’ve financed their campaign for them. Hopefully we’ll find enough people, first of all to vote, get people in, but hopefully we’ll find enough people to actually help our citizens remain safe and focus on the real safety issues. Not building some stupid wall for millions of dollars that has nothing to do with our safety, but actually protecting us from what is truly dangerous, which is maniacs with semi-automatic weapons just slaughtering our children. It’s disgusting.”

2 days ago I went and paid my respects as two local policeman's bodies were taken from ....

..... the county morgue to their hometown. They died after being ambushed trying to
save a women in a domestic abuse case.

I felt like crap after watching the funeral procession. It was like a deep fog of sadness.

I never want to hear about how we need a good person w/a gun to stop a bad
person w/a gun again. In Westerville, OH we had two really good persons w/guns
and still they died.

I also never want to hear ever again the following:

thoughts and prayers

a moment of silence for the victims

it is too soon to talk about gun laws

*******

It is the guns end of story.

Please read this post ...... smoking gun????

"Affected the issuance of results on election day" = flipping or deleting votes

NY Times Paul Krugman, "Trump Doesn't Give a Dam" Its not a plan, its a scam.

"It’s not a plan, it’s a scam." Don the Con.


https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/12/opinion/donald-trump-infrastructure.html?ribbon-ad-idx=5&rref=opinion&module=Ribbon&version=origin®ion=Header&action=click&contentCollection=Opinion&pgtype=article

Donald Trump doesn’t give a dam. Or a bridge. Or a road. Or a sewer system. Or any of the other things we talk about when we talk about infrastructure.

But how can that be when he just announced a $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan? That’s easy: It’s not a plan, it’s a scam. The $1.5 trillion number is just made up; he’s only proposing federal spending of $200 billion, which is somehow supposed to magically induce a vastly bigger overall increase in infrastructure investment, mainly paid for either by state and local governments (which are not exactly rolling in cash, but whatever) or by the private sector.

And even the $200 billion is essentially fraudulent: The budget proposal announced the same day doesn’t just impose savage cuts on the poor, it includes sharp cuts for the Department of Transportation, the Department of Energy and other agencies that would be crucially involved in any real infrastructure plan. Realistically, Trump’s offer on infrastructure is this: nothing.

That’s not to say that the plan is completely vacuous. One section says that it would “authorize federal divestiture of assets that would be better managed by state, local or private entities.” Translation: We’re going to privatize whatever we can. It’s conceivable that this would be done only in cases where the private sector really would do better, and contracts would be handed out fairly, without a hint of cronyism. And if you believe that, I have a degree from Trump University you might want to buy.

God, I miss Obama .... total class on the portraits



The arts have always been central to the American experience. They provoke thought, challenge our assumptions, and shape how we define our narrative as a country.

Thanks to Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, generations of Americans -- and young people from all around the world -- will visit the National Portrait Gallery and see this country through a new lens. These works upend the notion that there are worlds where African Americans belong and worlds where we don't. And that's something Michelle and I hope we contributed to over the eight years we were so privileged to serve you from the White House.

They'll walk out of that museum with a better sense of the America we all love. Clear-eyed. Big-hearted. Inclusive and optimistic.

And I hope they'll walk out more empowered to go and change their worlds.

- Barack
