CABLE NEWS TIME SAVER

In today's world there is so much going on that it's hard to keep abreast of all the important news stories.  So much news, so little time!
Cable news shows generally spend their entire hour or so discussing the latest thing Trump did or said.
The host asks the guests the same questions and with slight variations get the same answers.
By the end of the show they have beaten the horse to death and we are ready for the next hour of more of the same.
And one show, Hardball with Chris Matthews ends each hour with "Trump Watch," in case we zoned out during the first 55 minutes!
So here's a handy dandy suggestion for all real (sorry Fox) cable news shows on how to better spend their time and fully educate the public.
If the host asks, "Why did Trump, yada yada yada-" the answer must be, "Because he's a moron."
Then the host laughs or smiles and says, "But how come he..." The guest should then shake his or her head and again say, "He's a moron!"
And to really save time after the third question they could merely use the acronym: H - A - M!
The show is then free to move on to other news that affects our lives such as floods or climate change or cats stuck in trees.
After a while the hosts on every cable news show (again not you Fox, I did say news) could start their hour with a bullet pointed list of every new thing the moron in chief did since the last show.  The next 45 minutes could be spent as he or she sees fit and we'll all be better off.
Oh, and one last suggestion, can we limit the number of minutes per hour allotted to drug and pharmaceutical ads to let's say 3 minutes?  And stop with ads for drugs that have the nauseating list of side effects during the dinner hour.

DON'T EAT ON THE SUBWAY DARLIN

NYC in conjunction with the MTA is starting a program to stop people from tossing their garbage on the tracks.
Aside from being just plain disgusting the low-life practice is attracting more rats than ever and is a health hazard.
So to help them in their efforts to clean up the subways Petula Clark has graciously allowed a slight change to the lyrics of her 1967 hit song as follows.
(Just don't remind her because she's very busy you know.)



You walk down the stair
And you don’t seem to care
That there’s people around in a hurry
Then open your bag
Like an old used up hag
And start munching on something with curry

I’ve seen your kind a million times before
Pick up your food don’t throw it on the floor

Don’t eat on the subway darling
Then toss your junk on the tracks
Don’t eat on the subway darling
Your food is gross
And riders sit real close
And they get sick
And vermin’s what it attracts.

You think that you’re cool
But you’re just a big fool
And we can’t hold our breath till we detrain
Your actions are crude
And you know that you’re rude
And we wish that you used more of your brain

We’ve seen your kind a million times before
Pick up your food don’t squash it on the floor

Don’t eat on the subway darling
And toss your junk on the track
Don’t eat on the subway darling
Just read a book
Or meditate a bit
So we don’t look
To see vermin you attract.



DEAR, UH, WHAT WAS YOUR NAME AGAIN?

BENEDICT trump?


This came to my email inbox from a group calling themselves The Pen
It is noted as satire and I repeat before you read it that it is indeed satire. But is sure is right on satire.


A lot of people may not know that Benedict Arnold, the most infamous of colonial traitors, a prominent revolutionary war general who endeavored to sell surrender of the fort at West Point for a price, published a series of open letters to the "Inhabitants of America"
justifying himself. Here are some selected excerpts from those letters.


From Letter 1: Don't believe a word you hear from all the fake town criers. I've never talked to a loyalist or a Tory, not even one time, even though my wife's father is one. These are all lies and more lies, told by people who will say anything to win, disgusting and sad. Why, even now I am on my way to West Point to assume command there, and we will have so many brilliant victories you will get tired of winning. 

From Letter 2: OK, I admit that I met with Major Andre, representative of King George the 3rd, but nothing came of it. Yeah sure, I told them I wanted 20,000 pounds to disclose our troop movements and to dissipate our supply depots, which I in fact did.

And to demonstrate my transparency, I've released the offer of collusion letters that were just about to be published anyway. But they didn't give me any money up front, so it's all just a little bowl of cold nothing porridge. 

From Letter 3: Hey, I'm sitting here fat and happy in Great Britain right now, at least I got 6,000 pounds out of all this, which I'm using to speculate in real estate . . . really. Just barely managed to slip through enemy lines before George Washington's forces could catch up to me, with orders to hang me on the spot. They hanged Major Andre though, tough for him. Anyway, you'd all be better off if you were still subjects of the king. Anybody would have done what I did, everybody says so, and I have nothing but contempt for anyone who does not agree.

ABCs of the GOP


When in the minority the GOP blocked every possible move to make America great and move us forward in the World. And with every bill or rule they blocked they blamed the Democrats for not getting anything done.

But as bad and un-American as these terroristic tactics were they pale next to the fact that uneducated under-informed voters in America rewarded this terrible behavior by electing them into the majority.

Actually, a majority of Americans voted for the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton.  But the Electoral Kindergarten and years of insidious gerrymandering by the Republicans negated the will of the people and installed a totally inept man into the White House and instilled hatred across the land.

Here are the simple ABCs of the anti-USA GOP. Every line has backup so please click the links (bold lettering) that support each claim for more information:

DC SHOWBOAT

Fish gotta swim
Birds gotta fly
Don't care the issue
dt’s gotta lie
Can't help hatin that evil man!

When his mouth is open
Don't care what you're hopin
He will disappoint you every time
He's like a crime!

Some say he's crazy
I say he's shrewd
Often times lazy
But always quite rude
Can't help hatin that evil man!


Sincerest apologies to the great Jerome Kern & the equally great Oscar Hammerstein II but not to the current incredibly NOT great resident of the White House!

DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT:

The following was written by Dan Rather:

As with many of my fellow Americans, I don't consider myself partisan politically - never have. I am a registered independent voter and have been for most of my life. With that in mind, I submit the following:
Can we please get this out of the way? None of what is happening at the top of government now is normal. None of it. And no one should normalize it. No one.

We have a President who lies without a second thought. Big bold lies that are easily disproven. That is not normal.

We have serious allegations around obstruction of justice by that President. That is not normal.

We have an FBI director fired for insisting to continue pursuing a serious investigation into the sanctify of our republic. It has never happened before in our history. That is not normal.

We have a hostile foreign power attacking and undermining our electoral process. That is not normal.

We have an Attorney General under a serious shadow of association with said foreign power, with indications that there is much more to this story than we yet know. That is not normal.

We have Federal judges, our closest foreign allies, and the free press under scurrilous attack from the President and his enablers. At the same time we have despots praised. That is not normal.

We have an Administration fanning the flames of division over race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and gender. That is not normal.

We have an overhaul of our entire health care system being written in secret on a rapid time frame. That is not normal.

We have a sordid confluence of the President's business interests and his political power. That is not normal.

The list could go on and on. And feel free to add your own to the comments section.

What concerns me even more than any of these items is the fact that they are largely being met by a shrug or excuses from most Republican elected officials. Even many Democrats seem overwhelmed and are inclined to let some of this just ride. That may be how politics works. But this is bigger. It's about our nation.

We are shifting the goalposts for our democracy. We are failing to be outraged by the outrageous because there is something even more outrageous that always seems to hit the news cycle. And that is dangerous.

What gives me hope is we have had waves of abnormality in our country's history. And we've had times when what we would consider now to be not normal, like segregation, was considered normal.

What has centered and saved our country time and again is civic engagement. I believe that most people in this nation don't think any of this is normal. And they could very well vote out those elected officials in both parties who are normalizing these outrages.

Thanks Dan, and may I add:
REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!
REMEMBER EVERY NOVEMBER!
REPEAL AND REPLACE THE GOP!

WERE THEY ALIVE TODAY---

Anyone who knows me knows I can be quite opinionated and that can get some upset at me. Of course the fact that my opinions are usually correct doesn't help but that's for another time.
So I decided NOT to give my opinion of the current occupant of the White House and his merry band of morons (okay, I just did give a tiny taste of my thoughts) but rather let historical figures chime in on president #45.
(I apologize to any purists out there who feel I should capitalize his name or title but I just cannot bring myself to do that. And since this is my blog, tough.)
I call this piece:


WERE THEY ALIVE TODAY
WHAT WOULD THEY SAY,
WHAT WOULD THEY SAY?

Will Rogers: Well my catch phrase still stands since I never actually met donald trump.

Franklin D Roosevelt: November 8th 2016, a date which will live in infamy...

William Shakespeare through Macbeth: This poor player struts and frets far too long. This tale is surely about an idiot.

Teddy Roosevelt: He speaks not softly nor do his tiny hands carry a big stick. He is a bully!

Benito Mussolini: He's got some good ideas. I like him.

Nero: Now that he has decided to ignore Global Warming I have to remember where I placed my fiddle!

Alfred Hitchcock: This guy scares me. Although I could've used him in Topaz!

John Birch Society founders Bob Welch & Fred Koch (Yup daddy of Chas & Davey): Love the guy! But getting a bit impatient. When will he close down government already?

Carl Sagan: At SETI we search for intelligent life in the universe. Sadly with this guy at the helm it is getting harder to find it in America.

Adolf Hitler: He doesn't go far enough. How can he hope for a final solution if he allows laws to impede?

George Carlin: I think I can use many of those 7 dirty words to describe this president.

Winston Churchill: Never has so much been done to so many by so little a man.

Richard Nixon: Make no mistake about it, I was not a crook. But this guy? I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw the Watergate Hotel!

Jesus of Nazareth: He need not ban me from America, I wouldn't attempt to visit while he's president.

Mohammed Ali: I float like a butterfly & sting like a bee; I want time alone with that asshole dt!

Rod Serling: I was actually hoping this was one of my Twilight Zone episodes!

Fred Trump: Sorry America, I should've pulled out!

HOW SMART ARE WE?

America tests intelligence w/IQ exams, School ratings & psychological evaluations but leaves out one thing that stares us in the face every November.
We should add how voters act & react to policies put in place by politicians they voted for.
Will they vote for the same people next time even though the elected leaders did everything in their power to ruin the lives of their constituents?
For example, dt and the GOP have been trying to repeal our healthcare system ever since that black guy made it the law of the land. They want to take it away from 24 million Americans (sorry, the CBO now says it's only a mere 23 million Americans) and also remove social safety nets many have come to rely on such as Medicare and Social Security. And while they do that they'll be lowering taxes on the wealthiest among or rather over us!
Will the voters finally get it?
I doubt it!
But if some of them do then perhaps we can finally get back to a Democratic majority in both houses and to the business of really making America great again.

There are 528 days left until the midterm elections.
REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!
REMEMBER EVERY NOVEMBER!

WE'RE ENTITLED TO OUR MONEY!

Every once in a while I am forced to admit that other people express their feelings as good as I do, and sometimes, choke, better.
This lady shows her intelligently controlled anger at an old SOB and former Wyoming Repub (naturally) Senator Simpson.  Whenever this dolt opens his mouth it's clear he should change his first name to Homer!
Here is the lady's response to Mr. Simpson after one of his recent brain farts:

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security " to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!
"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).
3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.
5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.
DOH!
6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" to your incompetence.


Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:
1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?
2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?
3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?
4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.
And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech. That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it. And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.
P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements". WHAT AN INSULT!!!!
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years “It's my money”-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks.

You Go Girl!

THE GOP WILL DO NOTHING SO THE VOTERS MUST!


With Trump committing treason nearly every day it's hard to pinpoint one thing that a true unbiased non partisan Justice Department could point to in order to throw this traitor in jail.
But perhaps they could look into one of the items noted below.
This is a copied list that I found typed by a concerned citizen and posted on Facebook.
It relates to whether or not the Trump administration has dangerous ties to Russia.
I can only take credit for pasting it here but ask that anyone interested in adding to it please do so.

It’s hard for me to see any U.S. ties to Russia…except for:

The Flynn thing
and the Manafort thing
and the Tillerson thing
and the Sessions thing
and the Kushner thing
and the Carter Page thing
and the Roger Stone thing
and the Felix Sater thing
and the Boris Ephsteyn thing
and the Rosneft thing
and the Gazprom thing
and the Sergey Gorkov banker thing
and the Azerbajain thing
and the “I love Putin” thing
and the Donald Trump, Jr. thing
and the Sergey Kislyak thing
and the Russian Affiliated Interests thing
and the Russian Business Interests thing
and the Emoluments Clause thing
and the Alex Schnaider thing
and the hack of the DNC thing
and the Guccifer 2.0 thing
and the Mike Pence “I don’t know anything” thing
and the Russians mysteriously dying thing
and Trump’s public request to Russia to hack Hillary’s email thing
and the Trump house sale for $100 million at the bottom of the housing bust to the Russian fertilizer king thing
and the Russian fertilizer king’s plane showing up in Concord, NC during Trump rally campaign thing
and the Nunes sudden flight to the White House in the night thing
and the Nunes personal investments in the Russian winery thing
and the Cyprus bank thing
and Trump not releasing his tax returns thing
and the Republican Party’s rejection of an amendment to require Trump to show his taxes thing
and the election hacking thing
and the GOP platform change to the Ukraine thing
and the Steele Dossier thing
and the Leninist Bannon thing
and the Sally Yates can’t testify thing
and the intelligence community’s investigative reports thing
and Trump’s reassurance that the Russian connection is all “fake news” thing
and Spicer’s Russian Dressing “nothing’s wrong” thing
so there’s probably nothing there since the swamp’s been drained, these people would never lie
probably why Nunes cancels the investigation meetings
all of this must be normal
just a bunch of separate dots with no connection.
And there’s more:
and the Chaffetz not willing to start an investigation thing
and the Chaffetz suddenly deciding to go back to private life in the middle of an investigation thing
and the The Lead DOJ Investigator Mary McCord SUDDENLY in the middle of the investigation decides to resign thing
and the appointment of Pam Bondi who was bribed by trump in the trump university scandal appointed to head the investigation thing
and the The White House going into full-on cover-up mode, refusing to turn over the documents related to the hiring and subsequent firing of Flynn thing
and the Chaffetz and White House blaming the poor vetting of Flynn on Obama thing
and the Poland and British intelligence gave information regarding the hacking back in 2015 to Paul Ryan and he didn't do anything thing
and the Agent M16 following the money thing
And now the trump team KNEW about Flynn's involvement but hired him anyway thing.

My question tot he voters of America - WILL YOU PLEASE WAKE THE HELL UP AND REPEAL AND REPLACE THE ENTIRE GOP ALREADY?
If America is to survive we must rid ourselves of these dangerous evil self-serving traitors once and for all!
