It's not over yet,

but I gotta admit, the Clown in Chief's address isn't as bad as I was expecting. I am reminded however, of my favorite teacher, Jean Gallant, who taught 9th grade English, and one of her favorite terms, 'Glittering Generalities'. Phrases that sound good, but have no specifics behind them. Platitudes that are hard to argue with, sounding wonderful BUT, with nothing of substance behind them.
That is Donald's speech tonight. Education, opportunity, rainbows and unicorns for everyone, asking for cooperation from the opposition party, after the jerks on the right(R) were the worst obstructionists in history, in EVERY possible way. Glittering generalities sound good, BUT, unless he and the Pubs can put some action and reality behind their words, it's just another pile of BS by the Biggest Liar in the history of our country, backed by the Party of NO!
C'mon cheeseballs, prove me wrong. I dare ya.... Instead of just throwing increased BILLIONS at the most bloated …

What's a gal to do when the bullshit gets too deep, in a roomful of Pubs?

And in other news, my man Stephen Colbert had a message for the Clown in Chief.
 During his Feb. 24 speech at the Conservative Political
Action Conference, Trump dared these negative sources
 — if they’d like to say “Donald Trump is a horrible, horrible human being” — to “say it to my face.” Well, Stephen Colbert is happy to take on that challenge. “Sir ...” he said after the clip played, to applause from the
crowd. “It would be my honor to say it to your face.” Trump also said the mystifying line “Nobody knew that 
healthcare could be so complicated.” “It’s just that you didn’t know,” Colbert said, “That’s like
if I performed open-heart surgery tomorrow and said,
‘Wow, nobody said it’d be so wet in here.’”

The Pubs are SO hung up on 'labels'

SO, here's a label for you , after some rightwingnut shot 2 Indians, thinking they were Iranians, then bragged about it.

Trying to get a big, splashy military headline,

just a week into office, the Orange Clown OK'd a mission in Yemen that resulted in the death of a marine. When confronted with the fact that the the mission was authorized with inadequate preparation, the Clown in Chief did his typical act. He blamed it on Obama.
President Donald Trump suggested in a Tuesday interview that former President Barack Obama was at fault for a recent Navy SEAL raid which resulted in the death of an American solider, despite the fact that Trump gave the order to carry out the raid. 
The dead soldier's father refused to meet with Trump and had this to say.
"Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn't even barely a week into his administration? Why? For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because there was not a target worth one American life. Now, all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?" Owens asked.
Same old shit from the jerk(R). Screw u…

YUUUGE moment on The Daily Show tonight,

with Trevor Noah and guest John Oliver (Grammy Winner), when they agreed, clowns are funny, with their big floppy shoes, red noses and comic actions. And then they realized, a clown is in charge of the most powerful nation on earth.
Not funny....

For those who don't realize,

we ARE in the 'end times'. The Cubs won the World Series, The Patriots came back from 25 points in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl, The Oscars screwed up Best Movie, and Donald Trump is President of the United States of America.
I can understand the first three, BUT, Donald as Prez? You gotta be kidding....
Totally insane, until you consider that FOXSheep votes count the same as informed voters....
 As I said, End Times....

If you are a regular reader of the Denver Post

you are familiar with Greg Dobbs, a local rightwing conservative, SO, you'd be surprised, like I was, as he 'came out' for legal cannabis, today.
So the cat’s out of the bag. Or you’d think so anyway. But last Thursday the president’s spokesman, Sean Spicer, declared the Trump administration will try to stuff it back in, announcing that since marijuana is still illegal under federal law, “I do believe you will see greater enforcement of it.” Four years ago I’d have said hallelujah. I voted against legalization. From what I’d seen over the years, supported by some studies, for the vast majority of users marijuana might be just a stress reducer, a relaxant, even an effective sleep aid, but for some it is a stepping stone to harder drugs. But my side lost. And in retrospect, that’s fine. The bottom line? If I knew then what I know now, in 2012 I would have voted to legalize. Which brings us back to the federal government.  Trump will have a fight on his hands if he, and Presi…

Our neice Tori is married to Martin,

who's a pretty cool guy, as in one of only 450 people on earth to have 'summited' the highest peak on every continent. Just got back from his 40th b-day party, as he had just returned from Antactica, then saw him on TV.
Check out the video/story here;

The Orange Clown is promised to 'bring back manufacturing'

and the sheep swallowed it, electing him as prez, BUT, here's a FACT,about labor, the MAIN ingredient in manufacturing. Everyone buys 'parts' at the same price, BUT, a typical laborer in Mexico makes $10/day, while US laborers average $150. AND, overseas, the laborers make LESS. Where do you think all the cheap Walmart crap comes from?
AND, the same brainiacs who elected him also think he's gonna resurrect coal mining, when natural gas is a LOT cheaper and a LOT cleaner.
These 'jeniuses' are also sure climate change is a hoax, BUT, they think they can 'pray away the gay'.
And you wonder how we got stuck with President Trump?
The 'even worse' news? The Trumpies are in charge of 'education'. Just kiss your ass, and our future, goodbye, as the sheep take over. The same ones who couldn't make it in the 'real world' SO they had to have a CHANGE, a la Trump...

Okay, we can all rest assured, now

One of the Trumpies tells us, 'There's nothing to look at here, SO EVERYONE JUST GO HOME!
Just FORGET about all the Trump/Russia stuff, and his nose WAY up Putin's ass.
Thanks Sean. We all know you'd NEVER lie, just use 'alternate facts'.
White House: ‘There Is Nothing Further To Investigate’ About Trump’s Russia Ties Press Secretary Sean Spicer insisted that Russia’s  meddling in elections “has been investigated up and  down.” What a bunch of clowns, but, they ARE comrades, and  I'm sure the sheep are swallowing the story, as always....

The 'real' news reports about GW

saying 'a free press is necessary to democracy, and 'we need to investigate Trump/Russia ties'.
BUT, on the 'alternative facts'/Bullshit Mountain manure spreader, they talk about GW telling Trump, about ISIS, 'Go get 'em'.
And you wonder WHY the sheep are SO ignorant? DUH... They get their 'news' from FOX, swallowing bullshit like Debbie from Dallas swallows other stuff.
No wonder Trump LOVES FOX and hates the 'real' news.....

As the Orange Buffoon seeks 'Historic Increases'

in 'big ticket' military spending, while the future of war is in cyberwarfare and terrorism, he's just doing the typical Repub thing, as in throwing tons of money at what is already the most bloated military in the history of the world, stacking his cabinet with 'Generals', who can't shovel $$ to their buddies fast enough.
Same old shit from the party who's never seen a war or weapons system they didn't love, as long as their home district reaps the benefits.
I get SO sick of these jerks(R).
Nothing new here, though...

Cuz we're always looking for an excuse to have a party,

Carol goes all out, every year, for her Oscar's Night Gala, with the kids/families. With food, drink, a real red carpet and glittery decorations, she creates a special 'Quiz' about movie trivia, then we all toss some $ in a pot and predict the winners in all the various categories.
Because of his 'luck' Ted always wins.... until this year. Yup, we have a new champion, and I ordered a new 3-wood with my winnings. Thanks, everyone.

One of the FEW areas I agreed with the Orange Clown,

was with his 'plan' to fund infrastructure, which the jerks(R) always fought, cuz 'we can't afford it', while spending trillions on their wars, based on lies.
BUT, now that he's in office, infrastructure is on the back burner, AFTER, ObamaCare repeal/replacement (good luck), the Budget AND Tax Cuts. SO, basically infrastructure is toast,
cuz the three issues in front of it, PLUS all the crap that's gonna come up.
As always, the Pubs say what the low-info voters wanna hear, then dump on them when they're in office.
Nothing new here....

RE: The Trump That Stole America

FYI, the anonymous Dr. Seuss parody below (which a relative sent to me earlier today).  It’s the most light-hearted response to Trump that I’ve seen since November 8.  And it’s clever in spots – so I think it’s worth sharing. To read the whole thing (FUNNY!) Google the title.
(To be read in Dr. Seuss cadence:)
In a land where the states are united, they claim, in a sky-scraping tower adorned with his name. Lived a terrible, horrible, devious chump, the bright orange miscreant known as the Trump.
This Trump he was mean, such a mean little man, with the tiniest heart and two tinier hands. And a thin set of lips etched in permanent curl, and a sneer and a scowl and contempt for the world.
He looked down from his perch, and he grinned ear to ear, And he thought, “I could steal the election this year! It’d be rather simple, it’s so easily won,
I’ll just make them believe that their best d…

Try not to gag, when you read

about the Pubs saying 'we don't need no stinkin' special prosecutor', to look into Trump/Russia connections, after the Commies put 'their boy' in the White House. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions will DEFINITELY have no 'conflict of interest' with the Clown who just appointed him.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told “Fox News Sunday” that he has confidence in Sessions, a Trump campaign supporter and former Alabama senator, and his judgment. “If he wants to investigate this under the Department of Justice, that’s his prerogative,” Lewandowski said. “I have the utmost confidence in Attorney General Sessions. If he believes there is something there, he will investigate that. I think he is completely capable and competent to do so. … and I would leave it in his hands.”

Reason #7483, why I 'Can't Stand Them'(R).

The last time we had a gas tax increase, here in Colorado, was 1993. We've grown 'just a bit' since them, and our roads, bridges and infrastructure need YUUUGE maintenance, improvements and expansion, BUT, whenever an increase is proposed, like when gas prices went WAY down and a gas tax was popular among the people, the Party of NO! shot it down.
Why, you ask?
 Cuz these Jackholes(R) are afraid of (unelected) Grover Norquist, and they signed a NO TAX increase pledge to help get elected, and no matter how much we NEED it, the jerks(R) won't approve it, cuz Norbert and his clowns will give them a 'Black Mark' when they wanna be re-elected, SO, these dickless wonders(R) put their own welfare above the needs of their constituents, and vote down necessary funding for much-needed highway funds, BUT. they force Ethanol, and all the problems that creates, on us, to fund their Red State buddies.
Just one more reason why I can't stand them(R).....

The Gospel, according to The Donald

with help from Garrison Keillor.

Special to The Washington Post The Lord is my shepherd. OK? Totally. Big league. He is a tremendous shepherd. The best. No comparison. I know more than most people about herding sheep. And that’s why I won the election in a landslide and it’s why my company is doing very very well. Because He said, “I’m with you, Donald. You will never want.” So we were on this green pasture by the still waters and He said, “Lie down.” I said, “Lie down?” He said, “Lie down.” And He made me lie down. Right there in the pasture. So I lie down. People are so surprised that I lie down — “Oh, he’s lying down.” But He’s my shepherd. Great shepherd. Not just good. Great. It was right there that I thought, “This is going to be a tremendous golf course. Terrific greens. Plenty of water. And it is. Everybody who plays it comes away saying, “That is the greatest course in the entire world.” Everybody. So He was saying to me, Blessed are the deal-makers for theirs is the kingdom.…

We're all familiar with the Holy Trinity,

Father, Son and Holy Ghost. But I propose that there is also an UNHOLY Trinity, controlling politics in the US, thanks to Karl Rove and Roger Ailes. Yup, the modern, unholy alliance consists of Christians, FOXNews and the Republican Party, although there is little/no distinction between Repubs and their Propaganda Arm, FOXNews.
Karl Rove wisely brought them (the largest voting bloc, BY FAR, in the US) into the fold, by pandering to them, (while laughing at them behind their backs) and the Bushies cemented the relationship with YUUGE amounts of cash, unless the pastor spoke against Pub policies, then they were cut off. (Google it)
Now, there's not a sliver of light between the 3 entities, although Trump has to be the most UNCHRISTIAN prez, EVER.
BUT he has an (R) after his name, so all is forgiven, by the flock. As we 'look forward?' to seeing what damage he will cause, just recall what the last Repub admin did.
Remember 2008 and the worst recession since the Big D? This i…

For many decades now, the Nerd's Prom,

or White House Correspondent's Dinner has been an eagerly awaited event, as the prez sits down with the press, and they make fun of each other. This year, the thin-skinned Orange Clown is backing out.
BUT, I think we have an alternative, sorta like Trump has 'alternatives' to facts. This would be SO cool, and even his 'morally deficient minions' would get a YUUUGE number of laughs, AND the buffoon would HATE it. Perfect!

100 Lies in 36 Days

Here's the definitive list, with the lie, and the date.
02/26/2017 09:44 am ET
The First 100 Lies: The Trump Team’s Flurry Of Falsehoods The president and his aides succeeded in reaching  the mark in just 36 daysFrom little lies, to YUUUGE lies, the lying POS had ONE HUNDRED easily provable lies, in 36 days. Don't believe it FOXSheep? Check it out, right here;
The craziest thing? The Bullshit Mountain buffoons don't even care, cuz
they have been lied to SO MUCH, by FOX, that it's NO BIG DEAL!
What's another 100 lies, when there's an Everest-sized pile, ALREADY?

Thanks, again, to Dave

who I'm sharing, (or ripping-off), again, cuz we are on the same team.

Trump’s furious temper tantrums against the press could have some nasty repercussions as he becomes the enraged bull in a china shop.  There’s no doubt that a great deal of china will be broken in the weeks and months ahead – and some of it may be precious heirloom china that the nation treasures (and which could be lost in one of Trump’s anti-press rampages).

The other overriding impression left by this article is that Trump truly is the incredibly thin-skinned narcissist and unstable megalomaniac with a hair-trigger temper that we saw almost daily during the 2016 campaign – to the point that anyone with half a brain viscerally realized that he was temperamentally unfit for any public office – much less the presidency.  The trouble is, those with 'half a brain' are exactly those who elected him. That's the 'brain destroying effect' of watching, and OMG!, and actually believing FOXNew…

Are you kidding?

It's something the bullshit swallowing sheep will gobble down, BUT, it's wildly inaccurate.

"The media has not reported that the National Debt 
in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 
billion increase in Obama first mo[nth]," tweeted Trump. The tweet, which echoes something Herman Cain said 
on Fox News' Fox & Friends an hour before, doesn't
make sense for many reasons. First, it is true that the debt has probably ticked down
but as noted by the Atlantic's David Frum, this is mostly
due to the federal government rebalancing its
 intra-governmental holdings. Debt outstanding to the
public has barely budged since Inauguration Day. Additionally, the federal government is still operating
under the budget passed before Trump came into office,
so even if the overall debt decreased, his administration
had nothing to do with it. Finally, and most importantly, the economic circumstances
during his and Obama's first month in office are vastly

After getting caught in ANOTHER lie,

rather than admitting he was wrong about the 'Swedish Terror Attack ,Last Night', Trump's apologist, Bullshit Mountain, came to his defense and trotted out some stooge with a Swedish accent who supported the Clown's assertions. The only problem? The Swedes have never heard of this jackhole. Do the sheep care about ANOTHER lie? OF COURSE NOT! What's one more on the Everest-sized pile?
Swedish ‘national security advisor’ interviewed by Fox News is unknown to Swedes The Dagens Nyheter newspaper reported that neither the Swedish armed forces nor the Foreign Ministry had heard of Nils Bildt. By Adam Taylor


President Donald Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway
should face sanctions for “professional misconduct,” which include repeated lies and ethics breaches, according to
a formal complaint filed by 15 law professors across the
nation. “We do not file this complaint lightly,” states the letter,
which legal ethics professors from leading universities
such as Yale, Georgetown, Fordham and Duke filed
this week. “We believe that, at one time, Ms. Conway
understood her ethical responsibilities as a lawyer and
abided by them. But she is currently behaving in a way
 that brings shame upon the legal profession.”  The letter lists Conway’s lies to justify Trump’s ban
against travelers from seven predominantly Muslim
countries.  The complaint also upbraids Conway’s touting of
“alternative facts” — which are “not facts at all; they
are lies,” the letter notes. Finally, Conway’s touting of products sold by the
 president’s daughter Ivanka Trump on national TV
were a “clear violation of government eth…

Nothing could be more appropriate

BTW, I saw this and loved it...

A pair of progressive moles with a sense of humor were apparently responsible for a grand prank at the
Conservative Political Action Conference that
had members proudly waving tiny banners emblazoned
with the name “Trump” that were actually Russian flags. The pranksters passed 1,000 red-white-and-blue Russian
flags before Donald Trump’s speech at the conservative
confab in Maryland on Friday. Audience members scooped
 them up and waved them enthusiastically as Trump railed against the media. He also tweeted a series of attacks 
earlier against the FBI, accusing it of leaking information
that the White House had pressured the bureau to publicly dispute reports of contact between Trump’s aides and

Wow, Darrell Issa and I agree on something?

02/25/2017 12:52 am ET
Rep. Darrell Issa Suggests Trump-Russia Inquiry Needs Special Prosecutor, Not Jeff Sessions “You cannot have somebody who was on the  campaign and who is an appointee,” the GOP  congressman says.

In 2016, after being blasted, CONTINUALLY, by FOX,

Obama threatened to bar them from White House news conferences, although, he never did.
BUT, Sean Spicer said at the time, 'A press ban is akin to a dictatorship!', and I agree.
NOW, the a**hole just banned CNN, Politico, HuffPost and several other news agencies from today's presser, cuz they have reported actual FACTS, that the BIC, (Bozos in Charge) don't like.
Look it up!
Same old shit from the worst HYPOCTRITES(R) to ever take public office. GW and The Dick were TERRIBLE, but they weren't the (obvious) liars that the Trumpies are... Other than, 'Saddam has WMD's'.
Oh yeah, that was pretty bad, BUT, the Trumpies are WAY ahead on quantity, as the sheep keep their heads firmly and deeply implanted through BOTH disasters, while bitching how Obama 'wrecked' our country.

Wow, it's hard to believe, BUT,

we just had a new neighbor move in and he says we need a fence between our yards. He's the NEW guy in the neighborhood and is starting out like a real jerk, making outrageous demands...
I don't even want a fence, BUT, he's a big, bully-type guy and he says not only is there gonna BE a fence, that he's gonna choose the design, location and price, BUT, I gotta pay for it, cuz that's what he promised his buddies!
Can you see where I'm going with this? For the clueless sheep, I'm referring to the Bozo in the White House. Understand now? Yup, new neighbor, jerk, making demands, loud, arrogant, egotistical bully?
Can you imagine a neighbor (president) like that? What an asshole(R), even for a Republican.

Are you one of those weirdos

who like fresh fruit and vegetables, at a good price. WELL, the Clown in Chief has a  SURPRISE for you. Guess who picks the vast majority of our fruits and veggies? Yup, those damn murderers and rapists, (Mexicans) who are willing to do the hard work, in harsh conditions, for low wages.
Just saw an interview with several growers in California, where we get over 25% of our produce, (and a YUUUGE amount comes from Mexico), and they are VERY afraid, for good reason.
I guess we can all live on potato chips, like the Clown in Charge, if we don't wanna pay double, or more, for fresh produce.
Just remember, 'We don't need no stinkin' veggies'.
And the disaster (who can't see it coming?) continues to unfold, as a fruit/vegetable shortage will be the LEAST of our worries.

What's a stooge like Comey(R) to do?

After actively helping Trump win the presidency, now he's being told by the Trumpies (Priebus) to 'back off' the investigation into contacts between Russia and the Trumpies. The wild card is those damn 'leakers' who Trump has threatened  to find and crush.
What's a stooge(R) to do? We saw what happened when Flynn got caught in a bunch of lies.
Bottom line, no matter what happens, I'm guessing that they(R) will LIE about it. Why change now?
And the sheep sure don't care.....

When it comes to which bathroom to use,

the Trumpies say, 'State's Rights', BUT when it comes to states where the majority of people voted to make cannabis 'recreational', the buffoons(R) say Fed law 'Trumps' state law. And the Head Stooge, Atty Gen Jefferson Beauregard Sessions(R), (the guy who says he liked the KKK 'til he found out they smoked pot), is now in charge of enforcement. The same jerk(R) said, 'Good people don't smoke marijuana'. I would counter with, 'Sane people don't vote for Trump'.
Seems like these a**holes wanna turn the pot business back over to the cartels, cuz they sure ain't gonna stop it. What a bunch of idiotic jerks(R).
BTW, a majority of Americans, unlike the sheep (along with comrades Putin and Comey, with fake news) who put Trump in power with less than a majority, say pot should be legal. Period.
So much for a 'democracy'....
