Deja Vu
Author: BobR    Date: 09/21/2017 13:50:23

It's deja vu all over again. Ever since the Obama administration managed to barely eke out the ACA in 2010, the Republicans have been obsessed with denying him that legacy. Sure they'll couch it in terms of "government overreach" or "bloated government program", but the underlying motivation is quite clear, despite their attempts at obfuscation.

pResident tRump in particular is obsessed. Ever since President Obama roasted him at the Press Club awards dinner, he's had Obama in his sights. Regardless of consequences, his sole motivation for becoming president appears to be so that he could roll back everything President Obama accomplished.

While Obama was president, it seemed like one or both houses of Congress were putting a bill through nearly monthly to "repeal and replace" what they had cynically labeled "ObamaCare". Initially meant to be a pejorative, President Obama embraced it, and it's general success irked them even more.

Ugly

There really isn't much to say today. I have absorbed what the Occupant-in-Chief said at the UN yesterday and all that comes to mind is 'Ugly'

Evacuate They Said
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 09/17/2017 17:21:42

And so I did; now you should know that when Velveeta hears the word “evacuate” she hears “take a vacation”. Two weeks in St. Thomas should do the trick and keep me safe from this large overbearing storm named after Harvey Fierstein. After making my preparations which consisted of hiring Mexicans to board up the house, stock piling pallets of food, water, medicine and medical supplies (just in case), lumber and cleaning supplies and locking them away in a safe storage facility, I got on a cruise ship and headed to sandy beaches and cocktails!

Good Morning.

I really just can't anymore. Has there ever been a more vulgar, disgusting, and completely retarded president in American history?

In the last 2-3 weeks lots of animals have been displaced by both hurricane Harvey and Irma. Those who could not find their people have been evacuated to safe places all over the US. If you have a place in your home lots of rescues are looking for forever homes and fosters.

Get in touch with your local Humane Society's and pet resuse, check out Pet Finder and other adoption sites.

This is still not normal
Author: Raine    Date: 09/14/2017 13:05:25

Waking up this morning we all heard that 45 may have struck a deal with Minority leaders Pelosi and Schumer. The deal was about #DACA and the over 690,000 people who are known as Dreamers. I wrote about that last week.

Last week Pelosi and Schumer managed to get 45 to agree about raising the debt ceiling, thus avoiding a government shutdown for a few more months and an aide package for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

It had to be done.

Good Morning.

It's actually been a quiet week on the veteran's front. There is a certain sameness to the headlines that I often see skimming the usual veteran's news sources. This does happen from time to time, and is perhaps more indicative of the lack of effort and progress on the veteran's front than anything else.
