Trump is a jerk. He’s talking about shithole countries!!!!! He’s digging the hole here so we are well on our way to being one of his ideas of a shithole country. But he has the shithole and he should put his in it.
Just look at the latest New Yorker magazine cover. It’s soooo funny its sad.
If I where younger, I would pack my bags and move to Sweden and live there. But, unfortunately I am too old and would not be productive enough to justify my cost of living for the government. I am not angry about this. It makes perfect sense. It is just tough shit for me.
Living in Sweden would be about as utopic as you can get. If you are an intelligent young person who has a lot to offer to Sweden, you should move there. My grandmother was from Värmlund, or Varmland as she called it, not sure if my Swedish spelling is correct. My grandfather lived near the Baltic coast(?)
Now on to what I really wanted to say. I can’t believe people seriously feel that The Donald will actually be around in 2020. Hopefully he’ll be impeached, someone takes him out (alive or dead I don’t care cuz he is a treasonous bastard), beside, its up to whoever does it. Hell even a military coup wouldn’t be bad. At least we’d be a lot safer than we are with an egotistical 5 year old with no self-esteem in office.
And I am so repulsed by Mitch McConnell who is an evil evil man. If he thinks he going down in history at a great man, I am sure the people (including me) whose lives he will have destroyed will make sure history remembers him correctly.
Now, as for Oprah. I love her, she is a great person but she should not run for president. She should run for the senate which would allow her to do more good. The 2020 presidential candidates will hopefully be well educated in politics and democracy.
We need a person to run for President who is decent, knows what s/he is doing and is experienced. That’s why Hilary should have won. Well, we all know she did. I mean she was obviously a big threat to Putin and the rich people who own him. Just like Trump. Any one the Russian’s fear is better than Trump in my book.
The United States is a mess. The one pill I take that actually keeps me alive, and is the only reason I am alive was produced in Puerto Rica. The price of that pill has literally tripled for me. I live on SS. That’s a big blow. And the reason why it tripled is because Trump just ignored Puerto Rica and its American citizens at the the plant that makes that pill is still not up and running. And if I am correct, only half of Puerto Rico has electricity. I am not sure what the drinking water situation is down there.
A big gripe that I have, as well as all the others, is that people need to stop focusing on cow farts and permafrost emissions of methane. Once in the atmosphere it last about ten years. CO2 (I can’t use Alt on my computer for Unicode. Stupid windows uses the alt key for shortcuts that i will never use). Carbon Dioxide is forever. We can focus on Methane later, but everyone should focus on lowering CO2 as fast as we can. And of course on renewable fuel supply.
Which makes me beg the question: Why aren’t we sequestering carbon in areas that we have left empty by taking more stuff from Earth? At least carbon has mass and may be able to prevent things like sink holes. By forcing the carbon in the cracks and other openings left from mining for what ever mineral or substance that leaves a nasty aftermath. Even as we empty the aquifer, there may be areas to sequester carbon in there. And this is pretty much our only option, plus carbon credits and fines. It’s far from ideal, but at least its someplace we can keep an eye on until we come up with a better solution.
Greenland is melting much faster than thought it could. Fort Lauderdale floods just about every high tide making some the streets closest to the sea impassable. They have utilized pumps, but the pumps can’t keep up with the high tide. Miami is in the process of building a high defensive wall (I think in cement) to be a temporary fix for the future and flooding. There are already displaced populations, I’ll say it again, POPULATIONS, because of the loss of coastal lands and whole islands are flooding or are already submerged.
Now back to the bloody politicians and Trump (and i am including some democrats and not all republicans) are destroying our country. But what upsets me is the evil viciousness and bloodthirstiness of some of the Republicans. I mean it makes me ill to look at McConnell and Trump.
What really pisses me off is the Democrats not making an apparent effort to impeach Trump. If they are, they are keeping it a big secret. A large part of the US citizenry would gladly come together to impeach Trump and part of the them would be Republican as well. We have more stuff on Trump than we did on Nixon. He didn’t get impeached because of being part of Watergate, because he wasn’t. He was impeached for trying to cover it up. I can’t wait to see the movie about how the Washington Post went about publishing the leaked story. Maybe then more people would realize what needs to be done.
And Nixon never did stupid stuff like Trump is doing. He misused his position of power. Trump doesn’t even have a clue about what he shouldn’t be doing.
Bannen may be a good weapon for the democrats.
I also hope all the non-rich people feel really stupid for voting for Trump, because you are.
Well, I submitted two names for the next asteroid mission fly by. It is possibly comprised of two objects. So I thought Besties as in Best Friends may be good, as long as they don’t hate each other by this universal time. And I also entered Binies as in binary. Besties of course can be shortened to BF, and Binies to 01.
Gee, 2 Wee Beasties would be good. 2WB prounced Tweeb.
I am in the process of putting up another blog about about my experiences of learning to paint again. 45-40 years ago, i painted with watercolor and ink. But I knew nothing. The paintings where fine, I was just using paints from Murphy’s and Murphy Mart.
Now I am learning about paints, paper, brushes, blends, etc. A lot of home work, takes me a while, but I do it when I can. Now I love my colored pencils, but I love my watercolor pencils more and once I am more knowledge about watercolor, I will learn about using both types of pencils with water color and ink.
In the old days I used calligraphy pen tips. Now a days they have a wonderful selection India ink markers/pens. I love them. The are great. And they don’t leak thank gawd. I hated those drops of ink on my work.
Have a nice Sunday, Mike put on the last coat of paint on the inside of my GN horse trailer, and i will get it finish so I can Tuesday and Wednesday with my horsey.
oh yeah, my new blog is wccpink.jomay.com not that there is anything there yet.
May 19 2017
Disclaimer: These are the opinion of my board, me and probably a few million folks. We cannot be held accountable because, dare I say it, Trump’s an idiot. Someone needs to go over the rules with him again and this time explain them in 9th grade terms. Give the guy a break.
Well the first headline reads:
Ex-FBI chief Comey to testify to Senate panel in public session
Congress especially the Reps are acting like it was their own idea. neeeeeh WRONG! Comey had already said he would step forward but only in a public forum. You can’t trust those dirty Rep bastards, well not all of them. And yes, you can’t trust some of the Deps either. Or maybe just politicians in general. If I can be trusted now but just became a politician, does that mean I can still be trusted??? You decide.
Russia probe reaches current White House official, people familiar with the case say
My goodness, that special investigator is fast, or it means, that Comey’s people had done a pretty good job so far. But I am sure, it will be at least a good 3-6 months before we hear anything. This prosecutor doesn’t say things without thinking about it first. And as I mentioned in another post, FBI are meticulous note takers, and are trained not to miss a thing. Well the investigation is now at the White House. Can’t wait to see what happens there.
Trump Told Russians That Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation
I am so sorry but all I can do at this is laugh. Surely the Russians realize who the real nut job is. Why does it seem that Trump talks with the Russians more than anyone else. Sheese And how many more chances should we give Trump to make his supporters happy.
I surely don’t know.
I forgot all about my think tank. I thought i had crashed it and took it down. It’s still here and waiting for me to spill my guts over the child in/is Trump (cuz there certainly isn’t any adult there).
What is wrong with this man. Nothing, if he wasn’t president. But he is. The problem here is that he is egotistical, self-centered, an insecure big mouth maniac with a no self-esteem. This is why we now have alternate facts. If facts don’t make him feel good about himself, then we all better move onto alternate facts. And this is what it’s really all about. Him. Not a great America, not even King of the World. Just him. Either that or he is trying to mimic that North Korean Guy or his good friend, Putin. Putin is ex-KGB for gawds sake and trying to bring the cold war back. Wait, I may have misspoke. It’s already here, isn’t it. And I really don’t know what to say about that North Korean Guy except, has anyone seen his wife at all in the last year?
Trump probably burst a big happy bubble when he told the Russians what the Israelis told our government. And he thought he could get way with it cuz we where supposed to be all smilies over Comey’s firing. Hmmmm, that fact is way to alternate for me. I mean, he needed to be fired for what he did to Hilarie’s campaign, sure. But that doesn’t negate his other NON-PARTRIOTIC boners. And, yes, I said boner. I mean NON-PARTIOTIC.
I wish if Trump really did ask Comey to stop the investigation, that Comey would step forward and say something. But we all know how good Comey’s timing is. Or, we may have to wait until the Billeries run for an office or something. So it may be awhile yet.
Another issue with Trump in office, is that he is surrounded by a bunch ball-less ‘YES’ wo(men). Like that doesn’t interfere with an
Intelligent designed mind. And the fact that the Reps seem to be mainly ok with his behavior is frightening.
Actually the situation at this moment in the world is scaring the shit out of me.
As anyone ever thought of somehow, infecting isis recruits on the boarder of turkey with cholera or some nasty bug that hits fast and hard. Its not like all of them will die, but it sure would slow them down a bit. I have compassion, but I just can’t squeeze isis or Putin (at this time) in my comfortable compasion pit. Isis is not holding back with war crimes, I say call out chicken pox, cholera, some old flu strain.
And just think, when they’re all in the head, go in and pick them off in bunches. I am sure there will be protests from all the groups who no one gives a shit about. But once its done its done.
The only thing I don’t understand about making its a bit harder to get weapons used on killing sprees, is that too many upstanding citizens must have something to hide. I have always wanted an AK type of weapon, We have a m16 style 9 mm. My husband filled out all the paper work and stuff without a problem and bought the gun. Its similar to one I trained on when I was in the reserves. We have had no thoughts at all about going on a killing spree and we have no objection to filling out a longer more intense applications either. Because we have nothing to hide.
We decided to drop membership in the NRA because the top duder and some of the others are a bit radicalize and seem over the top.
What is truly needed is a lobby for better gun applications and carrying out the research on the information put on those applications. Also no one should be allowed to buy a gun for anyone else without that person having all the information needed on the person he is buying the gun for and that it still a bit shaky.
But what we truly need is better behavior health management. The are times when patient to doctor confidentiality is not appropriate. Our society is creating these type of people who want to be notice, who are lonely and feel hopeless and helpless, probably bullied. But going out and killing as many people as you can and then hoping to be killed yourself, what a rush that would be. You’d get your 15 minutes of fame, especially if you kill more. There are signs these people exhibit and more people should be taught how to see these signs. And when the person is younger, he will be better equipped emotionally to hide these signs, but the sicker he becomes as he gets older, the signs are harder to hide. We need to get the population to recognize these signs, and report these signs without hysteria. Mass shooters love the chaos in a shooting spree, makes them feel the the big man.
I used to love exotic weapons and still do, can’t afford to collect. If I had the cash for protection and registration of these type of weapons, then I would have them. It is still our right as citizens to bear arms.
Besides, look in the countries that have gun control and then look at their death rates and you can figure out what each country’s weapon of choice is among the people. If i can’t use a gun, I would get a simple cross bow or a hunting bow, or a shotgun, baseball bat, knife, tiny wire cord to strangle. Or even kill by hand. But they can still get illegal guns. Check that cause of death percentage in these countries, you would be surprised.
People are naive if they think that really strict gun control is gonna work and stop killing sprees. These people have to be stopped prior to getting the weapons and they can buy them illegally anyway. Besides, its Saturday night specials that probably do most of the gun killing.
People need to calm down and think these things through. I would say look to the NSA for security but they have no clue how to use the info they got. Really really sad group of people and they are making it larger. What a country!!!! What they need is more staff to go through more info with software that triggers on certain words or phrases and pass it along to the newly hired people whose job it is to catch these trigger.
Good grief. It sucks, because the republicans don’t care about anyone except their selves and those big money men/women who support them.
I truly hope that the polls are right about Trumps numbers falling. Such a relief. I wish that Paul Ryan could run for pres. Or at least be the winners Vice Pres.
Isn’t today we find out about the house speaker vote…can’t wait to see it.
I hope Cruz would just drop out of politics altogether. How can someone be so intelligent but a total dumbass?
I realize that Trump is a sexist, which his daughter doesn’t seem to mind, but she doesn’t have to because she is his daughter. My problem is Trump actually becoming president.
If he wants to make a law where women and cross dressers have to wear heels (spiked would be great) I am all for it.
But its his attitude, his immaturity that worry me.
The republicans already made the USA look like idiots, ignorant (as in unknowledgeable) morons. And President Obama is a bit out of his league, (but my boy has insurance for the first time and he’s 31), made us look wishy washy, and I love Obama for what he stands for and was not afraid to put it out there. Even his feelings on racial inequality. (I am a scots/irish swede and very physically white). But I am afraid of how Trump will act and how worse he will make us look.
I know he thinks he is at the top of the pile and no one can touch him, at least in America, but there are a lot of bad people who will love to take him down. I would ask Paul Ryan to be my running mate, at least to give us a chance, if anything does happen to Trump. You may think you are smart but there is always someone out there who happens to be smarter. I hope he realizes that Putin thinks he’s a joke, as many of the other leaders do.
For our sake and the sake of the country, Donald, please become the mature, intelligent adult worthy of being president if you are elected. And I was serious, Paul Ryan is my choice for vice president and I am not even a Republican. He’s even my choice for the Democratic running mate.
