Your Taxes at Work

Last night the House passed a $1.3T (that's Trillion - with a "T") spending bill to keep the lights on in government until September (the end of the fiscal year, and just over a month before mid-term elections). It has something in it for everyone to love, and something to hate. The Dems were able to get a few concessions, but not the ones we'd hoped for.

Good Morning.

There appears to be some targets over the V.A. this morning. The clarion call of privatization is sounding ever louder. But of course, it would be a bad idea - this is one of the handful of things in the US that should automatically fall under the guise of the federal government. But of course, these things take money and regulation, things the current administration is vehemently opposed to.

Mr. Irish

Paul Ryan is the speaker of the House and a huge supporter of everything President Trump does, and for that we should all be proud. One thing that Mr. Ryan no longer has to put up with is complain about policies and opinions of the Kenyan. With Trump, there's nothing to worry about, everything is going swell.

Good Morning.

Out once again with the troop at New England Base Camp. I thought I heard this morning about a knife rampage in Philadelphia? 21 injured, but no deaths. Funny how that works.

Russian Roulette
Author: BobR    Date: 2018-03-15 13:03:44

It seems like something out of James Bond movie - a former Russian spy (and his daughter) were poisoned in London. It turns out it was done via a very lethal nerve gas, and British prime minister Theresa May is not having it:
Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain expelled 23 Russian diplomats on Wednesday over the poisoning of a former Russian spy on British soil, raising tensions between the two countries to a level not seen since the heights of the Cold War. She vowed to crack down on Russian spies, corrupt elites and ill-gotten wealth in Britain.

Her statement to Parliament came after Moscow rejected a British deadline for Russia to explain itself over this month’s attack on the former spy, Sergei V. Skripal, and his daughter.
