Selling the False Trump Selfless Savior Narrative

Selling the False Trump Selfless Savior Narrative Found this in my feed, about how the Army screwed up at the end of the gulf war, stranding soldiers in the Middle East and how Trump arranged for their return at his expense, except for the cost of fuel. And as a result of that experience, former Private Sean Buller is loyal to Trump because Trump was … Continue reading Selling the False Trump Selfless Savior Narrative

You’re Not Winning If You Have to Lie to Make Your Point 🤥

You’re Not Winning If You Have to Lie to Make Your Point Oh look someone has discovered the power of Photoshop [yawn]. The image of Obama holding up a “Trump is my president” t-shirt went with the caption: “post this and watch all the liberals’ heads explode.” If 45 were at all a “normal” policy-wonk kind’a Republican, I could almost imagine Obama holding up the … Continue reading You’re Not Winning If You Have to Lie to Make Your Point 🤥

This Show Must Not Go On

This Show Must Not Go On Word have consequences and silence has meaning. We are better than what we have allowed or conspired to happen in our nation. If you are angered at that idea, screaming, “I didn’t do anything!” then you’ve proven my point. The hate driven divisive behavior from the “top” of our national culture needs to stop, like this newspaper, and work … Continue reading This Show Must Not Go On

Pot Calling out The Kettle: tRumpf and Amazon

The guy who bragged that not paying taxes was “smart” attacks Amazon for not paying their fair share?! Didn’t he just sign a bill into law designed to lower the taxes of large businesses and billionaires? Oh, right, besides his poor memory skills, such things only apply to whatever he watches that morning on “Fox & Friends.” Also, Amazon’s use of the USPS is probably … Continue reading Pot Calling out The Kettle: tRumpf and Amazon

On Knowing What Other People Are Thinking

In an exchange that began with a conservative friend fretting over CNN’s obvious obsession with bringing down tRumph he commented, turns out accidentally, that in view of the scandals he’d blame Melania for leaving tRumph. That didn’t make sense so I commented: You’d blame Melania if she left Trump? That doesn’t seem to make sense. She should “stand by here man” while he has multiple … Continue reading On Knowing What Other People Are Thinking

Why Aren’t We Fixing This

Why Aren’t We Fixing This? If this problem wasn’t presenting as a political thing, what would we be doing to fix it and why aren’t we doing that now? I don’t give a damn how you feel about guns, or mental health, or the NRA, or Citizens United, or illegal aliens, or DJT, or the second amendment… the United States of American has a problem … Continue reading Why Aren’t We Fixing This

Daily Random Sh*t: No More

Daily Random Shit: No More Washington Post article carried one story from the shooting (https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/two-strangers-bond-over-country-music-and-beer-then-the-shots-started/2017/10/03/d5d4541a-a846-11e7-b3aa-c0e2e1d41e38_story.html) Sad. We can make this better, but it won’t be simple and we cannot let those who shout the loudest “win.” What should have led to friendship and connection was brutally killed by a sniper’s bullet and some are going to say that they cannot do anything to stop such … Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: No More

Daily Random Sh*t: Grow Up 45, said my conservative friend

My conservative friend, Reo, posted the above comment. My response comment: I agree (with the a Trump part). The quality of the character of the person doing this job is rather important. He does not seem to be up to the task. It’s interesting to demand that a 70-year-old grow up and act presidential. All the presidents make mistakes, especially in the beginning, but this … Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: Grow Up 45, said my conservative friend
