All of us who were there, after Katrina,

remember Gen Honore, the no-nonsense military man who 'got things done'.
Well, he's chiming in on the Twitter war between the Liar in Chief and the Mayor of San Juan


Ret. Lt. Gen. Honoré on Trump tweets: “The mayor’s living on a cot and I hope the President has a good day at golf.”http://cnn.it/2x2TORk 9:21 AM - Sep 30, 2017 Honoré said the crisis in Puerto Rico is even larger than what he  faced during Katrina.  “Is Puerto Rico worse than what you found here in Katrina?”  CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller asked Honoré on Friday. “Oh, hell yeah,” Honore said985 Replies 11,236 Retweets19,589 likes

Had a great time last night...

Met the crew at Nissi's, in Lafayette last night and danced to Thumpin', a 'really tight' 11 piece band with a fantastic lead guitar and singer, plus the other 9....
Always good to get out with friends, and this was really fun.

This is the 'fake news' pic sent out

by the rightwingnut trolls trying to further inflame the Pub base, after the Liar in Chief started it all with his, 'Fire the son of a bitch' Tweet.
BUT, look at the original pic, (far below), called Victory Dance, before it was 'doctored' for the Hater in Chief's clueless base.

After the Twitter war between the PR mayor and the Liar in Chief

Image
Lin Manuel Miranda, (who has more talent/intelligence in his little finger than the Liar in Chief has in his entire gelatinous body), creator of 'Hamilton',  had a few choice words for the Orange Clown, who gave himself an A+ for his efforts in Puerto Rico.

From today's Denver Post, Letters to the Editor

I just finished watching all 10 episodes of “The Vietnam War” documentary produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Personally, I found it painful to watch. The accuracy and impact of this series will be a subject of debate for some time to come. I firmly believe that the seeds of acrimony, division and mistrust that were planted during this sordid chapter of our nation’s history have had a negative effect on our country ever since. It is worse now than at any time since the turbulent 1960s.
Yup, during those years those of us of a certain age learned that our leaders WILL LIE to us, and the Good People with their Good Book will be right with them, sending young men to kill or be killed, for a bullshit war that accomplished NOTHING, other than to alienate a generation and lower the opinion of the US in the eyes of the world. And as if that weren't bad enough, the assholes(R), under GW and The Dick, did it AGAIN in Iraq.                                                                    …

While the Liar in Chief is giving himself an A+

for Puerto Rican disaster relief, those at ground zero, incl the mayor of San Juan, have a MUCH different opinion.
"We are dying, and you are killing us with the
inefficiency, and the bureaucracy," San Juan
Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said Friday at a news
conference. "So I am done being polite. I am done 
being politically correct. I am mad as hell." However, Trump hit back early Saturday, accusing 
Cruz of "poor leadership ability" and criticizing 
Puerto Rican officials. "They want everything to be 
done for them." While the mayor pleads for help as her people are 
dying, the Liar in Chief came back with a nasty Tweet,
as he usually does, dodging all responsibility, and 
politicizing the situation. What an A-hole.... Donald J. Trump
✔@realDonaldTrump The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump. 5:19 AM - Sep 30, 2017 38,50838,508 Replies 13,86113,861 Retweets

Despite their LIES to the contrary,

the figures are in, and the Pubs are at it again. Their new Tax Plan is HIGHLY skewed to the richest in our country.
In a way I'm kinda glad to see it, as the dumbshits who voted for the Orange Clown are gonna get dumped on, AGAIN, although those hit the hardest, those making $150-$300K are most likely to be Democrats, from all available income data in Red vs Blue States. Bottom line, 80% of the benefits will go to the top 1%. This figure is from the non-partisan Brookings Tax Policy Center.
Time for you Dotard Drumpf devotees to remove your heads from your asses, cuz the Pubs have a plan to replace your head with a body part of their own....
Some things never change.
Despite repeated promises from Republican lawmakers that the plan is designed to provide relief to the middle class, nearly 30 percent of taxpayers with incomes between $50,000 and $150,000 would see a tax increase, according to the study by the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. The majority of households that made …

While most people in the US, and most of the world

want to cut air pollution, by closing dirty coal burning power plants and replacing them with cleaner, more efficient, cheaper natural gas, the dumbshits(R) in charge, lead by the Orange clown and the dufus Rick Perry, Energy Secretary, want to 'Reprice' the cost of electricity from the dirty, old coal burners, so a few redneck coal miners can keep their jobs, instead of being trained in an occupation that is actually needed.
Yup, Dotard Drumpf wants to reward the low/no education hillbillies who voted for him, SO, he's figured out a way to 'cook the books' to make it happen'. Screw the environment....

PERRY WANTS TO ALTER PRICING OF ELECTRICITY DALLAS » The Trump administration is pushing for changes in the way electricity is priced to better reward coal, which faces growing competition from natural gas and renew-ables. Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Friday called on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to act within 60 days to adopt rules raising payments …

Wow, the tone deaf Trumpies FINALLY smelled the coffee,

on an issue that even the Orange Clown could understand, and read from a teleprompter.
The little piggies in the Liar in Chief's Cabinet better not get caught being coddled on private jets, NOW, that their most hated enemy, the MEDIA, exposed the clowns flying to vacation hotspots, with their wives, for a small amount of 'business'.
WOW, something everyone can agree on, and the Liar in Chief is jumping on it.
The jerk(R), no matter how clueless, can recognize a trend...
Taxpayers don't like to get screwed by his stooges.
Who da thunk?
 Bottom line.....The Pubs 'Get religion', once they're caught.
Nothing new here, as the HYPOCRITES get caught, AGAIN, and act like they didn't KNOW!
Some things never change......
And the sheep say, 'Thank you sir, may I have another?'

Of all Trump's pigs, feeding at the public trough, within his Cabinet 'Swamp',

one of the slimiest has to be Tom Price, who most thought could NEVER get confirmed as head of HHS, cuz he was found to have traded hundreds of thousands of shares of stock, in Health Care Companies, WHILE he was introducing legislation (35 bills) which would help them. Despite this damning information, he was confirmed the first vote, on a straight Repub screwjob.
NOW that he's a 'public servant' he's been busted for approx FIFTY private plane flights, (already) when nearly EVERY time there was a commercial flight available. AND, he flew at LEAST five times on his private MILITARY FLIGHTS (at approx $25K/hour) to various places in Europe and Asia, taking his wife each time, to some of the best vacation spots in the world.
Now that he's busted, he's offering to REPAY the taxpayers. BUT, there's a YUUUGE catch. He says he'll pay for HIS seat, which he calculated by dividing the cost of a 30 person private jet, by THIRTY.
We taxpayers get to pick up the …

As millions of American citizens in Puerto Rico are facing months without power,

and are already nearly out of food and water, the Orange Clown, who is constantly praising himself for the 'Great Job' he is doing, is reminding them that they already have a YUUUUGE debt, and it's not gonna be forgotten.
Just what you'd wanna hear if your were suffering the deprivations of these poor people. right?
 Ultimately, the government of Puerto Rico will have to work with us to determine how this massive rebuilding effort -- will end up being one of the biggest ever -- will be funded and organized, and what we will do with the tremendous amount of existing debt already on the island," he said.
What an asshole, BUT, he's the choice of the 'Evangelicals'.
What a joke, just NOT funny....

Dotard Drumpf's man, Gary Cohn,

Image
is IGNORING the YUUUUGE amount of equity that would be LOST, (which some people tap for all kinds of purchases), and saying the $1000 they might save could be used for remodels or a new car.
No shit, I'm not making this up, as we hear the latest Rpub propaganda.
Trump's economic advisor Gary Cohn said Thursday that an American family could save $1,000 under the Republicans' proposed tax reform plan, and it could use that money to pay for a new car or a kitchen. "If we allow a family to keep another thousand dollars of their income, what does that mean? They can renovate their kitchen, they can buy a new car, they can take their family on vacation, they can increase their lifestyle," he said. "That's what our tax plan has to do." OMG!. This is what the liars are saying, as they plan to torpedo the value of the  biggest asset each family has, by removing the Fed AND State tax deduction of home ownership. Even the dullest, most ignorant of the sheep(R…

Most people's largest asset, BY FAR,

Image
among those fortunate enough to own their home, is the value of that home.
BUT, did you know part of the Pubs plan to 'cut taxes' is to do away with the mortgage deduction?

In the midst of the mad selling and explaining and quantifying and qualifying of potentially the biggest U.S. tax overhaul in decades,President Donald Trump's chief economic advisor stood at a White House podium and made a bold declaration: "People don't buy homes because of the mortgage deduction." But it sure helps!

Do you have any idea how much that would devalue the price of a home? If that tax benefit goes away, to help pay for the many YUUUGE tax breaks for the very rich, the benefit and value of home ownership would plummet.
Just sayin'.....
Much like the last Repub administration not only lied us into a catastrophic, EXPENSIVE war in the mid-east, AND caused the worst recession since the Big D, when real estate values lost nearly HALF, which took a long eight years under Obama(…

Speaking of the Liar in Chief being a pathological LIAR,

Image
did you see his interview Wednesday, about the Pubs having the necessary votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, with the 'anti-health care bill' by the GOP?
This is after everyone (except maybe the FOXSheep) KNEW they didn't, but he stood there and lied his fat ass off, AGAIN.
"We have the votes for health care," Trump insisted Wednesday. "The problem is we can't have them by Friday, because the reconciliation ends on Friday. So we'll have to do it in January or February. But I feel we have the votes. I'm almost certain we have the votes, but with one man in the hospital we cannot display that we have them -- plus some people wanna go through a process just to make themselves feel better. That's OK." Er, no. First off, Republicans don't have the votes. At best, they have 46 "yeses". BTW, there was no 'man in the hospital'. The lying sack o' shit just 'made it up'. Just another lie, and the YUUUUGE pile h…

The Evangelicals who put the Orange Clown in office

should be forced to see the carnage to human bodies, inflicted by modern weapons, 'up close and personal', as Dotard Drumpf is encouraging more weapons sales, to provide a few more jobs.

Trump to unleash more global arms sales The easing of restrictions on international weapons deals could create U.S. jobs, but critics fear it will inflame war zones.
President Donald Trump is preparing to ease restrictions on U.S. weapons sales overseas, sparking concerns about further flooding the international market with high-tech weapons and inflaming feuds in hot spots like the Middle East. Just when you think the a-hole CAN'T get worse.....

There are several Us vs Them situations,

Image
like Flat Earthers vs Science, Trump supporters vs sane people, Climate Change believers vs 'head up their ass crowd', FOXSheep vs the Informed Citizenry and the 'God Is On Our Side' (so we can can do no wrong) crew vs everyone else.
Now we have a new divide, though not all that surprising.
Colin Kaepernick took a knee, at great personal cost, both to his wallet and reputation, to protest the inequality he saw, mostly because of the YUUUGE number of documented shootings of unarmed black men by white cops, with ABSOLUTELY NO CONSEQUENCES for the shooters. This happened MANY times and we all saw the videos.
Now, the 'head up their ass crowd' is calling for 'Boycott the NFL', cuz they choose NOT too recognize the origin and purpose of the demonstration.
They would rather make it about, 'They hate our country', following the lead of the Liar in Chief, who will do/say anything to keep the focus on HIM.
These sheep fall into the category of 'I wi…

It hasn't been proven YET, that Trump colluded.

with the Russians who DEFINITELY worked long and hard to make sure that the Liar in Chief was elected.
NO DOUBT, according to ALL the US intel that did SO MUCH to tilt the election toward him.
Even the clueless FOXNews rightwingnuts can't argue that fact.
BUT, the clueless minions can't explain WHY our arch enemy wanted/wants the Orange Clown in office.
HMMM, you whackjobs ever wonder WHY?
The IF isn't a question, it's just WHY?
Can you imagine the 'righteous anger' from the rightwingnuts if Hillary had won that way?
I'm guaranteeing armed conflict in the streets........
But that's DIFFERENT, for the clueless, uninformed FOXNews sheep, who bitched about the POSSIBILITY that Hillary's e-mails could be hi-jacked by a foreign govt (RUSSIA!).
Can you say HYPOCRITES?
Just another word for Republicans.....

The Liar in Chief is at it again, concerning his Tax Reform Policy

Image
The standard by which the Trump tax plan should be judged is the standard that the Trump administration itself has set.“There will be no absolute tax cut for the upper class,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said shortly after the election. “My plan is for the working people,” President Trump said yesterday. “I don’t benefit.”None of that is true.
It's nothing more than the old, discredited Trickle Down Theory(R) that the Pubs LOVE to implement every time they can. If you wonder about it's latest reincarnation just check out Kansas, nearly bankrupt after Brownback got his way.

A Boondoggle Masquerading as Tax Reform
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD The proposals outlined by President Trump and congressional leaders depend on the discredited notion that tax cuts for the rich will help everyone.

Alabama, the heart of the Repub Bible Belt Base

just elected their Repub candidate to Replace Jefferson Beauregard Sessions(R), the rightwingnut in charge of the nation's judicial system.

Roy Moore, a proud bigot, won. If you think I’m being too harsh in describing him that way, read his own words. He has argued that homosexuality should be illegal, Muslims should be barred from serving in Congress, 9/11 may have been divine retribution and Barack Obama wasn’t born here. Moore is even Trumpier than Trump.

I have no words....

Wow, the Orange Clown threw his support behind Luther Strange, in AL

Surprise, his opponent won easily, in an election to replace Jefferson Beauregard Sessions.
With friends like the Liar in Chief, who needs enemies?
Dotard Drumpf(R), what a joke....
This just in:
The mayor of San Juan is on, saying people are DYING, and Trump is talking about the DEBT ($72 Billion, according to the Orange Clown) that Puerto Rico owes to the US.
She's freaking out, as she should.
Have I mentioned what an asshole he is?
BYW, birds of a feather, yadda yadda....

From the Liar in Chief, who lies all the time,

says Colin Kaepernick's stance isn't about racism. WRONG! It is..
As always, the Clueless Clown and the sheep don't have a clue either.
AND did you catch the Orange Clown's reason why NFL ratings are down (although they're NOT).
According the A-hole, people would rather watch HIM, than pro football.
No shit, that's what he says.
As always. what kind of uninformed jerk(R) supports Dotard Drumpf?
Oh yeah, the FOXSheep, sponsored by the Propaganda Arm of the Repub Party.
Let the Revolution begin.....
BTW, we non Pubs also believe in the 2nd Amendment......

Lots of cartoons out there, but I like this one..

And now, to lighten it up a bit....
