TRUMPS as AMERICAN as APPLE PIE

WAKE UP America. TRUMPS as American as apple pie, he's a reflection of you and what you've become, THAT'S why he's President. YES the Russians may have screwed with your election process OR it could have been the apartheid Israeli's who also wanted the U.S. to have a HARD right government. BUT the truth is if you were a civilized and moral people, Trump as a candidate for the highest office in the land, would have been summarily written off as the JOKE it is.

While you focus on Comey, Senate Republicans are launching an audacious plan to pass Trumpcare

Think Progress
June 8, 2017

While attention shifts to James Comey's much anticipated testimony today, Senate Republicans are still working to deprive 23 million Americans of health care coverage.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says he is striving to get a vote on the Republican health care bill by July 4, before Congress leaves for August recess.
As ludicrous as this deadline seems, the Senate could pull it off -- but it will be done without much public scrutiny.

Sen. McConnell implemented Senate "Rule 14" Wednesday to fast-track the GOP House health bill.

Is Mr. Trump a secret Progressive? Or is he buying enough time for a Hail Mary?

What is Mr. Trump’s record? No, not his APPARENT record, his ACTUAL record.

50 years ago TODAY Israel ATTACKED American NAVAL Ship KILLING and Injuring 208 Americans

June 8th 1967 Israel launched an unprovoked attack on an American Naval ship, the USS Liberty, killing 34 US seamen and injuring 174. Today is the 50th anniversary of that attack, a fact not one corporate media outlet will bring to the attention of the American people.

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials.

Our President is a Bully

Trump has no class. He has no empathy. When he sees a foreigner, he attacks. He doesn't know what diplomacy is, and doesn't care what he doesn't know. He needs to step down and let someone who has some take over.

Inspection- Pushing the Envelope Towards Violence

Our drive back from the Adirondacks is always long, tiresome and tedious. Ohio defines "tedious" through its dominant pattern of interstate scenery: cornfield, cornfield, "Grandpa's Cheese Barn!" cornfield, cornfield, "YOU'RE GOING TO HELL!" Which seems to invite that short stint before death called sleep driving. We tend to trade driving duties and a chance to sleep back and forth. Hopefully there won't come a time when we get confused between the two.

Leaving Paris is OK

I don't think the USA dumping the Paris accord will matter. It's a bone to the base, but unknown to Twitler, it probably doesn't matter. The big loss could be the 3rd world dropping out, but they won't. The fact is, cleaning the air isn't a financial burden - now it's the CHEAPEST means to develop a country. The main reason we need an international agreement is to assure that the 3rd world has access to cutting edge technology, which we have with or without the USA.

Watergate Vs. the stock market.

Not many present day investors remember what happened in the market due to the Watergate investigation. They were either not born or not interested. Here is a short chronological summary. June 1972, the breakin occurred and the perpetrators were arrested. Post election, the dow moved up from about 950, peaking out at 1060 in early January 73. In January 73, the Watergate trial started Archibald Cox was was appoiinted special prosecutor. The market responded slightly downward. In August, Opec placed an embargo on oil to the USA due to our meddl

The Trump presidency is like an aging pipeline

How can this not remind us of the aging pipelines carrying oil sludge and crud which now exceed their engineered longevity or are being built in risky locations. The solution (like that of DC lawmakers) is to assure us that all is ok, while in reality the pipes may fail at any moment, dumping poison into our aquifers and even polluting the Great Lakes where they cross the Straits of Mackinac between the upper and lower Michigan peninsulas.
