Something to tell your 20 somethings

This morning I was leaving at 6:30 AM, quiet neighborhood, a loop that runs up the hill. Get to the corner and there is a car sitting askew against the curb, a lady standing on the sidewalk with her dog talking to the occupants in the car. She waves me up so I pull up behind the car and step out.

There is a young lady in the car trying to start the car, male passenger passed out in the passengers seat. The lady walking the dog is freaking out so I tell her to start walking away. Talk to the female driver and tell her, look, you guys look like you are wasted. She immediately goes off saying the lady is a bitch and they are just trying to get home but the car won't start. I tell her the car isn't in park, so it won't turn over, but I will follow her home assuming she lives in the neighborhood. Her response, "you aren't fucking following me." She puts the car in park and starts it up, luckily she can't get it into gear after starting. I tell her she has two options, I try to park the car for her and they call someone up, or I follow her and if she goes past a stop sign a quarter mile down the hill then I call the cops. Her response, 'who the fuck am I going to call Ghostbusters? and you aren't fucking following me.

The lady with the dog says she is going home to call the cops, so I just sit there and wait while the young lady tries to move a car without being able to get it into gear. Cops show up and cuff both of them.

Lesson to be taught, if you are completely trashed, have run your car off the road, understand that you are in a bad situation. Use some common sense, take help as offered and realize that the option of driving home is off the table, but you can get out of the car, have someone get the car parked properly and either walk home or call a friend to get you home.

All and all he is just another Prick with no wall!

Just saw the sign in the background on the Chris Hayes show.

That wins my sign of the day award.

About 50 protesters in Lake Forest CA this afternoon. Across the street a counter protest of three, looked like a husband/wife with some sign too small to read and a douche dressed as tRump.

Horns were honking, lady next to me refused to make eye contact so I yelled out tRUMP SUCKS! She continued to stare straight ahead. I'm certain she got home and claimed she was accosted by libruls.

Why I think the costs for the "wall' funding increase

Now the costs to build the wall are nowhere near the requested funds. We are likely talking 100 billion to truly build a wall/fence.

But the 'great businessman' tRump keeps upping the number, 5 billion, 5.7 billion, 8 billion today. The question is why? And the answer seems to be really simple, and the answer is always the same with Dipshit Donnie. THE RUSSIANS.

He is being leveraged by Putin and Russians, and like any business/mob enterprise they are forecasting revenue, using the forecast to drive supply, and incurring costs. So the original 5 billion was last quarters costs, Dipshit Donnie missed a month and gets penalized. Sorry Donnie, you owe 5.7 billion now. Donnie, you didn't deliver again, in addition you will likely need to battle it out in court, new cost is 8 billion.

To be leveraged to this extent there are very few valid reasons. An honest person/party who is being leveraged like this can simply walk away. We do this in our own lives all the time. That 60 inch flat screen advertised for $500 isn't available, but here is a $570 model in stock. We have the choice to buy or we may walk away. Sorry, we can only sell you this $800 model. In that case we almost certainly walk and never waste our time going to that store again.

tRump can't walk, because he can't. At this point I don't give a shit why he can't walk, I don't give a shit that the case against tRump isn't complete. The issue is that he can't walk away it isn't up to Dems to prove why he can't walk away. At this point it needs to be flipped. The Repubs need to prove that he is not a puppet.

Did we learn anything this week? Lesson one gazillion in Repubs are assholes and Dems need to learn.

how to take victory laps.

tRump and the Repubs got their collective asses handed to them. One of the worst beat downs in recent memory.

He can't declare a National emergency, he can't reallocate funds from other sources. He can talk, bluster, bluff, pontificate and the media can continue to allow this ridiculous behavior.

He didn't get a concrete reinforced wall from sea to shining see. This after he failed at the original promise that Mexico would pay. He got less than he would have got from the December deal. (when Repubs controlled congress) He shut down the gov't, blew a ton of money, and got slapped down. He will continue to get slapped down if he tries to reallocate funds.

Folks, he lost, BIGLY! VERY VERY BIGLY in MAGAt speak.

Now the repukes are spinning, refusing to admit the smack down, trying to declare victory, it is bullshit. And Dems need to taunt them, laugh at them and loudly remind them of their huge failure. There is absolutely no need to be nice to them.

Be happy, team Pelosi basically just had a three and out in football terms. On first down the repukes ran a draw play and lost five yards, then the QB dropped back to pass and took a hard sack, on third down the QB launched a weak pass due to intense pressure, then the Receiver got hit so damn hard that the ball bounced lamely to the turf. They are bruised, bloodied, and will be hesitant to come out for the next series. Next step is to hit them even harder. Dance when we knock them down and always remember, never let up and never feel sorry for them.

one thing I didn't see posted today, my observation from SOTU aka STFU

The talking heads on both MSNBC and CNN didn't spend much time on tRump.

Within an hour the cluster of a speech was not being discussed. Abrams speech was getting praise, MSNBC gave time to four incoming female Reps. CNN was discussing tax plans. (AOC and Warren)

Donnie Dipshit was basically being ignored, old news, same old shit.

For a narcissist, being ignored is the worst possible outcome.


This Trump Variety Show isn't going to get past the pilot show

90 minutes was just too much.

30 minutes is plenty, 10 minutes to chant Build the Wall, a segment on fetus being pulled from the womb, and an old war story.

Like the old Wally George show, they Reps can chant USA, USA, as they break for commercials.

Holy shit! Army running helicopter exercises in Los Angeles.

They actually landed on Wilshire. To put that is perspective that would be like landing on 5th Ave, or Park Ave, or Main Street in your town. Appears that there was no warning, scared the shit out of local residence.

Now why would the Army do this? I can think of two options, and neither is good.

More links - Why would the Army need to 'practice' landings in downtown LA? Camp Pendelton is 50 miles south, plenty of practice areas.

I think it is time to turn it up to 11!

With tRumps latest bullshit saying funding for the wall is a must, the Dems need to go hard after him.

Someone experienced, safe, like a Steny Hoyer needs to come out attacking, hard.

Publicly call out tRump for his inexperience and strongly imply that he is a Russian agent.

IMO there is no way to resolve the tRump situation other than going directly at him for all the things we know are true but are holding back waiting for Mueller. Someone needs to go out and start throwing punches. Harry Reid used to do it from the Senate, someone in the House needs to take that style and go after tRump.

OMG - The media specifically Andrea

Discussing the Shultz/Warren fight, Andrea actually used this example. Of course the 2% doesn't kick in until 50 million, but you could have some school teacher who inherits property, artwork, etc, and then would have a huge tax liability.

WHAT! So 0.0002% would be hit with the extra tax on the amount OVER 50 million. And she wants to focus on some hypothetical school teacher who it going to be 'harmed.'

One thing we can safely assume about Pelosi

She obviously has a clean background otherwise the Russians and their puppet would be using the intel.
