1/31/2017 With 25% of President Obama's term remaining the republican leader of the Senate refused to hold a hearing on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee. He stated that there was an election coming and the American People deserved to have their voices heard. He didn't say 'the electoral college', he said the American People. Well, since only 25% of voters voted for this president Mitch, you need to wait 4 more years before you can have hearings on our next Supreme Court Justice. If 25% was too small before then 25% is too small now.
1/31/2017 I've got a Great idea for a new lottery guaranteed to raise lots and lots of money. We'll sell $1.00 chances to say "You're Fired" to djt. And I'm sure we can get him to agree by promising him that he'll be rewarded with the largest TV Ratings in the History of the World.
1/31/2017 I'm proud of you Sally Yates. Thanks for your service to our Country. You are an American Patriot and an American Hero.
As for you djt, you are behaving like a dictator, but you are not a king, you are not the oracle, you are not omnipotent and you're certainly not a decent human being. You are a selfish self-centered puppet. You know how you play people like your supporters, your workers, your business associates your family. Now you’re the one who's being played by blackbart bannon and he's either being played by putin or maybe even in cahoots with him.
1/31/2017 The question I wish someone had asked tom brady at media day: You are friends with djt and you're really good at deflating footballs so how about using your talents to deflate your golfing buddy's over-inflated Ego?
1/30/2017 Now we have the The Gang That Couldn't Talk Straight
bannon, conway, spicer, rudy, pence, trumps, ryan, reince, sessions, mitch, kushner and a cast of 'Many Greedy Power Hungry People'
I'm really tiring of all these miscreants lecturing us. And lecturing us with lies. If I don't trust you, and you've given me no reason to do so, and I don't respect you, and how can I? Then why would you think I'd let you tell me how I should feel? I hate being treated like I'm stupid by Stupid People. No matter how many times, or how many people state lies - they are still lies.
1/30/2017 What's the difference between someone who wore their Country's uniform while serving in the military and someone who wore a military style uniform while attending private school? The man who was tortured while he was serving his Country opposes waterboarding vehemently. The man who looks tortured every time someone says something bad about him is for it. I prefer the opinions of those with experience, OK?
1/30/2017 If you really are the Greatest Deal Maker of All Time, Super Rich, Uber Confident and the Ultimate Winner, then why don't you use your money to build your wall and have Mexico pay you back with interest? BTW: This American Tax Payer is still waiting for you to live up to your promise (cue the laughter) and release your Tax Returns.
1/29/2017 Do you remember the time that President Obama sent his 'alternate fact goon squad' out to try to explain what he really meant? Neither do I. And now those of us who pay Taxes are paying the salaries of the 'alternate fact goon squad'. BTW: Still want to see those TAX RETURNS. In kellyspeak the Women's March wasn't a Protest Rally it was an alternate celebration parade.
1/20/2017 Back in the days when I had a pet dinosaur we had books called Encyclopedias. The 2 big ones, World Book and the gold standard Encyclopedia Britannica, contained many volumes. Like other 'Reference Books' most kids had to use them in either School Libraries or Public Libraries, but because my Dad had benefited so much from Education we had a set of World Books at home. Then later on he was asked to write an entry for Encyclopedia Britannica and instead of being paid in cash he chose to receive a set of their Encyclopedias. We all used these books because they furnished us with factual information. Now I can't hit 'share' with the confidence that I'm passing along factual information, aka Facts, without checking on snopes. And even then…… BTW: I know I've been guilty of hitting 'share' too soon and I apologize. It's up to each one of us to make an effort to only opine and 'share' based on Facts.
1/20/2017 We have a United States Senator who made a living as a comedian who, due to the seriousness of his position, goes out of his way to not be funny or cute. Then we have all these Elected Officials and their Operatives who go out of their way to try to be funny and cute. Would you please follow the example set by Senator Al Franken and use arguments based on facts and reasoned thought. BTW: You are neither funny nor cute. And stop flashing those smirks you call smiles.
1/2017 I've always enjoyed musical parodies by the likes of Tom Lehrer, Mark Russell and Weird Al. One of my favorites is Tom Lehrer's "Elements" set the tune of Gilbert and Sullivan's "I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General" in which he lists every element on the periodic table.
The year of the Brat
We will We will Mock You, We will We will Mock You
The Angels want to wear my red hats
Donnie B. Bad
People of the World, join hands and stop the trump train, stop the trump train
I'm a …… grabber, I'm a ….. Grabber and they have to let me
Momma don't let your babies grow up to be trumpers
Mock the trumpster, mock the trumpster
It's not easy being Orange
What's so funny about War, Hate and Misunderstanding
You can take all the trade with China….and drop it smack dab in the middle of the deep blue sea.
Hit the road jerk
We don't need a Zero
So let's all get trumped and screwed
1/29/2017 We do have a flawed voting system. But it has nothing to do with voters being registered in more than one jurisdiction like Steve Bannon, Steve Mnuchin, Tiffany Trump and millions of other folks. Raise your hand if you unregistered to vote after you moved. That's not many. I admit I never have, in fact I never thought about it. And it has nothing to do with Registered Voters voting twice, which is as rare as the current president telling the truth. One of the biggest flaws is the Electoral College. We call ourselves a Democracy so why not act like one. One Person, One Vote. Then we can go about correcting the other problems like the political contribution system, PACS, gerrymandering and making voter registration and the Act of Voting more accessible.
