The Interview!
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 08/06/2017 16:54:32

Whew! It's been an exhausting 198 days, 0 hours, 7 minutes, 21 seconds, since our president was elected to run the country and make us great again. Time for a well deserved vacation. Your own Velveeta was able to speak to President Trump just after he arrived in New Jersey while waiting for his KFC to be delivered before he hits the links. That's golf lingo.

I think it's been a while since I posted an open blog.

Let's be careful out there.

There are weeks when I really want to laugh my butt off at the craziness of this chaos. Then I remember this is reality and we are in the car that Toonces has driven nearly off the cliff and are teetering there holding our collective breath waiting to see we finally over over.

Here's to another week, have some cute.

The President of AmeriKKKa
Author: BobR    Date: 08/03/2017 13:43:41

There was a lot of brewhaha yesterday over the presser with tRump senior policy adviser Stephen Miller. As can be seen in this video, he had some rather interesting things to say about immigration and the Statue of Liberty:
CNN’s Jim Acosta sparred with White House adviser Stephen Miller in a seriously heated back-and-forth over immigration.

Acosta told Miller, “What you’re proposing or what the President’s proposing here does not sound like it’s in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration.”

He quoted the words on the Statue of Liberty “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses” and asked Miller if he’s “trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country.”

Miller pushed back by saying the words were “added later” and things got even more heated from there.

Miller is certainly playing fast and loose with the facts there. The poem "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazrarus was donated by her to the cause in 1883, prior to the statue's dedication in 1886. It's true it wasn't actually inscribed and added until 1892 - a mere 6 years later - but it's been part of the statue's raison d'être since the beginning. Right from the start, the statue represented the welcoming of immigrants to America to Ellis Island, which also began ramping up its processing in - wait for it - 1892.

From Golf Magazine:
Chatting with some members before a recent round of golf, he explained his frequent appearances: “That White House is a real dump.” Trump is often at his most unguarded among the people who pay for their proximity to him.
Of course, the WH denies it.

Ask a Vet

Good morning.

Things just seem to keep on escalating. By now, you've heard about North Korea's recent missile test? We're probably all going to die. North Korea is crazy enough to actually use it, and of course things like this don't help any.

It's also rather telling that only military options seem to be up for discussion.

Moving on, I'll file this under "what will Trump soil next"? A Medal of Honour has been awarded to a Vietnam veteran by the President. At least his remarks seemed to be appropriate this time.

We'll finish up in Russia today. Looks like the ol' Tit for Tat with Putin is as strong as ever.. I don't know what kind of deal Russia made with the candidate, but it looks like they can't control their puppet, either.

It's not the first time I've said it - keep swinging at the hornet's nest, and eventually you'll connect.

As a stress reliever for yet another week of chaos thanks to tRump and the GOP, please enjoy this Sumatran Tiger Cub Born at National Zoo.

The BSA is in Trouble
Author: BobR    Date: 07/27/2017 13:02:24

On Monday night, pResident tRump broke a long-standing tradition by giving a blatantly political address to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). As the BSA noted in a tepid explanation (not really an apology), it has also been a long-standing tradition to invite the sitting president every year to speak to the national jamboree. Some presidents have taken them up on the offer and delivered non-political speeches that fell in line with the Boy Scout values. tRump is the first one to do otherwise.

When Barack Obama was president, he delivered a recorded message, rather than appear in person. That was a tacit protest against the BSA's policy regarding gay scouts and scout leaders (even though Obama himself was a boy scout, and supported the program). That previous policy (which has since been rescinded) did not help bolster the BSA's image when compounded with the message and optics of tRump's "Hitler Youth" fiasco. There was plenty of outrage, and rightly so. It wasn't even just the political aspects either.
