To Bow or Not to Bow
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 05/21/2017 13:57:43

As we all know, President Obama bowed to the Saudi's when he visited, but Donald Trump refused to bow and reportedly told his staff that the first one that did would be sent home!

Less damage, or more?
Author: TriSec    Date: 05/20/2017 12:12:16

So, Mr. Trump is out of the country this morning.

Ordinarily, we should be cheering such a thing. He is thousands of miles away, and can probably do the least amount of damage outside Washington.

Or can he?

I'm no seer - so instead of trying to discover how far back we'll be setting our international relationships this trip, I'll just present a photo montage of how I foresee things might end up during the next 9 days or so.

But her Emails!
Author: BobR    Date: 05/18/2017 13:04:50

Irony is a cruel mistress. The most recent election is still very fresh (some might say "raw") in everyone's minds. We all still remember the chants of "lock her up!" from the tRump supporters. Republican politicians held numerous hearings with testimony from recently fired FBI director James Comey and Clinton herself. The upshot of all of it was that some emails weren't correctly marked as "classified" and made their way to her private server (which - btw - was never hacked).

Nonetheless, it was a source of controversy for her campaign, and she was painted as "crooked", untrustworthy, and cavalier with state secrets. These myths were picked up, amplified, and promulgated by American and Russian media, and tRump made hay with them at his rallies. It likely wasn't the only reason she lost the election, but it played a big part in the narrative - again, primarily from the tRump campaign.

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

Heading right to Washington. With all the other problems we've got going on, you of course know what the budget priority is. That's right - eliminating the sequester caps on the military so we can have more war.

Death, Despair, and Dismay.
Author: TriSec    Date: 05/13/2017 12:26:43

Good Morning.

I've got three stories today to cheer you up. President Trump recently had the idea to slash the budget for the "drug czar" to the tune of 95%, as was reported in this space a week ago. This will, of course, touch off a snowball effect throughout the United States. There is an example of this starting already, even without Mr. Trump's help.

The Tipping Point
Author: BobR    Date: 05/11/2017 13:23:33

Everyday, as a new fresh hell is brought upon us by this administration, we ask ourselves "when will somebody do something?" There have been SO many scandals that would have brought down any other administration (or prevented it from occurring in the first place). Bill Clinton used to be known for not letting various news stories affect his popularity. pResident tRump isn't popular, but he seems to have made the Congress and other governmental agencies impotent.

It's nearly impossible to predict, but there is always that tipping point when the fulcrum is breached and the downward slide begins - slowly, at first, almost imperceptible, but then gaining speed as the parabolic curve is traversed. This is what those who play the stock market (especially those who sell short) gamble on.
