Anyone else have PBGC pension?

When TWA (Trans World Airlines) declared bankruptcy in 2000, our pensions were transferred to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

I get a monthly check. We could not survive without it.

President Donald Trump nominated Gordon Hartogensis as director of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
Hartogensis is the brother-in-law of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.
The agency he would lead provides retirement benefits to more than 800,000 people whose own pension plans failed.

This scares the shit out of me.
You?

Evidently I got Miz t. a bird-repelling bird feeder.

A few days ago she said for Mothers' Day she'd like a bird feeder outside our home office window.
Her wish is my desire.
Done!

I bought a cool red feeder at Lowes.
Fits on a 1" pvc pipe.
6'.
Squirrel-proof.

Put it up at 6:00 this morning so she'd see it when she got up.
So it's been up, chock full of tasty bird seed, for over 10 hours.
The back yard is FULL of birds.
They're almost bumping into each other.
We had 3 mid-air near misses.

And not one single bird has come close to that red bird repellent feeder.

Avenatti: A combiination Of F. Lee Baily and Melvin Belli?

Look 'em up, kiddos.

A new aircraft carrier will be named in honor of tRump.

The USS Bone Spurs.

Couple of Alabama repug campaign commercials

I'M MORE CHRISTIAN THAT YOU ARE!
Yes, her name is 'Twinkle'.

Not sure what 'oystchers' are, but go Kay-Kay.
I was born and raised in Alabama, and I can barely understand her.

Here's the Sarah Sanders press briefing I'd like to see.

She comes out and gives her normal briefing of half truths, exaggerations, and outright lies.
And then she calls for questions.
And there is...SILENCE.
No one raises a hand.
No one says a word.
All the reporters just sit there and stare at her.
If she's still standing there after 2 minutes (a L-O-O-O-O-N-G time on live TV) all the reporters rise in unison and walk out.

OK, I'll ask it. What does "Be Best" mean?

This is what the networks showed as the slogan for First Lady Melania Trump's 'child betterment' campaign roll out today.

I know the U.S. Army probably already has copyrighted "Be All That You Can Be!"

But "Be Best"?
Not Be THE Best, or Be YOUR Best.
Just Be Best.

Awright! I'm ready.
I'm BEST!
See?
I'm bein' BEST!

Maybe this is a Slovenian saying?
Grandfather to grandson: "Be BEST!"
Grandson: "Yes, of course Grandfather. I will be BEST!"

It's almost post time.

In honor of the Kentucky Derby I'll be making Mint Juleps for me and Miz t.
A generous Kentucky cousin has given us a bottle of Woodford Reserve Bourbon Whiskey, "The OFFICIAL Whiskey of the Kentucky Derby".
Booya.

Pisses me off when I can't do what I used to could.

No, not that.
Trying to hang some blinds today and I just can't see well enough to do it.
Macular degeneration.
Hanging four blinds would have been a 30 minute job a few years ago.
Tried to talk Miz t. through it, but she just doesn't have the strength to get the screws in.
Damned frustrating.

Wish I could find a handyman who didn't charge $20 an hour.
Getting old sux.

I understand what tRump is all about now.

This man WILL get revenge on his enemies.
At any cost.
Even if he damages himself in the process.

At the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner Obama really raked him over the coals.
As did Seth Meyers in his stand-up bit.

And Donald was PISSED!

He really just intended to mess with Obama using Hillary as proxy.
He wanted to get back at Obama in any way he could.
He was as surprised as the rest of us when he actually 'won' the presidency.

But now that he has it, all he wants to do is repeal or negate ANYTHING that he perceives as an Obama accomplishment.

That's it.
That's all he has.
There are no "policies".
It's just "What did Obama do? OK, we do the opposite."
Yep. That'll show the bastard.
He is entirely predictable.

Until we can relieve this child of his 'powers' we are in deep serious shit.
But you already knew that.
