Tapp This.

Good morning and welcome to a new week. What fresh pile of dog poop have we to look forward to. Today? The White House still insists the black man gave him a wire tapp in trump tower.

Well, thanks OBAMA.

Only out of office for 8 weeks and you are ruining our country that Donald is trying to make great again.

Is it just me or has all cute, fluffy posts on Facebook dried up lately? They seem to be replaced with what passes for inspirational sayings and articles mixed in with this fiasco of an administration tRump Dumpster fire posts. Facebook used to be a somewhat enjoyable place, now it just seems like another place to argue with the crazy.

Reason #1 Billion to hate tRump, his evil face ate all the cute!

The tRump Dump: Congressional Address Edition
Author: BobR    Date: 03/01/2017 14:49:06

Last night was pResident tRump's first address to a joint meeting of Congress (generally known as the State of the Union address after the president's 1st year in office). As a disclaimer, I just couldn't bring myself to watch it, so all commentary is based on the transcript. From what I've read, there were no outbursts of "Liar!" from the Dems, so kudos to them for maintaining decorum while lie after lie washed over them.

NPR has provided an annotated transcript of the address, so all quotes will be drawn from that. I cannot say with any certainty that this is exactly what he said, because we all know how he tends to go off script.

He started off condemning the attacks on Jewish sites (Bannon must not have approved this part). He spent all of 1 minute on it before moving on to describe a new pride in America. He didn't say "white pride", but that was the dog whistle.

Good Morning.

It's been a very long time since we examined our military spending habits here at AAV.

So we'll dive right in, and we find this morning's Cost of War passing through:

$ 820, 272, 546, 000 .00

This is not normal (part gazillion)

Over the weekend Politico published this story: Sean Spicer targets own staff in leak crackdown
Upon entering Spicer’s office for what one person briefed on the gathering described as “an emergency meeting,” staffers were told to dump their phones on a table for a “phone check," to prove they had nothing to hide.

Spicer, who consulted with White House counsel Don McGahn before calling the meeting, was accompanied by White House lawyers in the room, according to multiple sources.

There, he explicitly warned staffers that using texting apps like Confide — an encrypted and screenshot-protected messaging app that automatically deletes texts after they are sent — and Signal, another encrypted messaging system, was a violation of the Presidential Records Act, according to multiple sources in the room.

Good Morning.

It's been 70 degrees around here for the last few days. I was working yesterday, but I got to spend a delightful day in downtown Boston Thursday with the Scouts.
