Schumer socked it to Trump

Broadcast on MSNBC the WH meeting between Trump, Pelosi, and Schumer. Trump is such a F-ing bully. He continually interrupted Pelosi and Schumer with lies (of course). Bragged about how much of his wall has been built. I had to turn the sound off. That display must be what it has been like with everyone, who has tried to have an adult fact-based conversation with Trump. Is it any wonder why the rats are jumping ship?

How weird is it

that MSMedia is complimenting Trump on behaving himself (so far) during the Poppy Bush funeral events? Somewhere in his dimwit brain a small light went off about all the bad press and unflattering comparisons he got about with McCain's death and funeral.

We expect dignity and graciousness from our presidents at such times. The content of Poppy's funeral drama is not Trump's saga. I want to see Trump be the first to offer his handshake to the Bush boys and wives without his aggressive pull backwards and off balance move.

Can he do it? We shall see.

2 more flush their reputations down the toilet

Gina Haspel overturned the apple cart today, when she testified to a secret congressional committee on the Khashoggi murder.

And now, it's perfectly clear for all too see how much Pompeo and Mattis have slimed themselkves. They have completely trashed their reputations for the benefit of #1-Individual. Some might say that they trashed their reputations long ago -- so there's that. Why can't these Republicans see that #1-Individual is poison, a completely depraved man, who slimes everyone in his orbit. (Never mind, that's a rhetorical question.)

The stupidity and depravity of Republicans in general, and Trump officials in particular is totally fascinating to me. Fascinated in the Buddhist way of "look at what you find repulsive." Over and over and over again, I keep getting these little pearls of wisdom about our governmental poverty of ethics and morality. Everyday, there's another story about government corruption and personal lack of integrity.

And now Wall St is saying, well no, there's really not a deal with China, as WH folks scramble to find an explanation about that. Are these high gov officials really that stupid? (another rhetorical ??). I would be embarrassed to tell lies that are so easily exposed. Wouldn't you be embarrassed to tell such obvious lies? I swear it's a soap opera.

Just curious - Has Trump ordered flags at half mast?

About not reimbursing our Vets

That Trump's VA says that it can't reimburse the vets that it short-changed, because of computer problems is complete bullshit. I worked in the computer industry for 20 years. I don't know what computer system the VA uses to look-up names, benefits, addresses, and print a check and a mailing envelope, but whatever computer system it is can be reprogrammed to get the job done. What's the big deal? Does the VA not have in-house computer programming expertise? I don't buy that. Does the VA not want to budget the money fix this problem by either in-house talent or subcontracting to a corporate firm, like IBM or Oracle, etc. Now that I can believe.

I highly suspect that every agency of the Trump Admin has been told to cut costs on steroids now that Republicans have screwed the Fed budget with their tax cut for billionaires. What do you think? OK DU corporate computer folks, what's the deal.

Screwing over vets about money benefits == is that not the perfect example of the Trump admin?

For Mississippi today -- Get up. Stand up.

Who do you think will be the first Dem to stand before a microphone

and publicly call Trump a traitor? I'm thinking it will be Bernie. Yes I know that he's and Ind.

Pelosi Opposition

Let me say whole-heartedly that I am a big Pelosi fan. I used to live in San Francisco. She is the most effective Dem leader of the last 50 years, if not longer. Boehner and Ryan cannot hold a candle to her. Effective means that she get stuff accomplishment through a wise use of compromise and consensus building.

Some opposing her may be well-intentioned for change. Some may have their own selfish reasons. But they clearly do not understand the fundamental law of change: Change occurs when their is a critical mass, who agree, "We want this change. This one right here."

Without critical mass, everything else is a process towards a possible outcome, or just so much useless windmill-tilting.

I submit that Pelosi opposers are in the later category.
