He has to be stopped

As I am reading the morning news, I find myself getting more and more angry about the diversion of billions of dollars of military spending to build the occupant's "wall". WaPo Reports:
The details of the 127 military construction projects that stand to lose funding to free up $3.6 billion for fencing and barriers on the southern border with Mexico were made public late Wednesday by the Defense Department. The list features projects in 23 states, three U.S. territories and 20 countries.

The decisions deal a particular blow to Puerto Rico, which stands to see more than $400 million worth of planned projects lose funding. Roughly $770 million of the money will be taken from projects in allied European nations aimed at helping them deter a possible attack from Russia. (snip)

The official said that of the 13 projects on the list from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, 10 were part of efforts to restore military installations after Hurricane Maria. The projects include the construction of a school for military children on what was once Ramey Air Force Base and improvements to Camp Santiago, a training facility operated by the Puerto Rico National Guard.

(snip)

More broadly, the list of projects ranges the gamut, from a space control facility at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado; to weapons training ranges in Mississippi, Oregon, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Alaska; to central heat and power plant boilers that need repairs at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska. Also on the list is a $9 million plan to replace a working-dog treatment facility at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
Here in Maryland:



I can't keep trying to repackage words to express how deeply bothered I am by this maladministration anymore. It's exhausting. Living with the lies and the sheer evil and cruelty is awful. He has to be removed from office.

He has to stop being allowed to shit all over our democracy.

Morning

Think I recently used the term "get all panda bear" to describe the constant frustration and anger.

Good morning, everyone.

I'm still having issues with the speed at which this site loads. Only on my home laptop, where it is permanently in my browser is it OK.

Mornin' all!

Just saw that Sensenbrenner is finally retiring. Good riddance.
