This is what Real Billionaires do

Today Jeff Bezos launched another Blue Horizin rocket and it was spectacular. Perfect landing too.

Elon Musk had been launching rockets as well.

Paul Allen and Richard Brandon have been focussed on reaching space too.

These guys will own the future. They have a vision that goes far beyond the current election. They will be remembered in history for their vision and foresight.

Another who says he is a billionaire has spent his money to become famous and powerful. He will be remembered in a very different light. Let this be a lesson to all who live for their ego.

Complaint filed with the FCC

I have filed a complaint today with the FCC about the state of our news outlets here in America.

In part:
Many TV networks and newspapers all say the same thing every day. It all begins with the same few words: "Trump" and "Twitter". No matter what, the story is that our president is an idiot who has offended yet another world leader, or group of children or some other group. Now I know that no self-respecting president would waste his time trying to make announcements on Twitter- that would be too juvenile. So it must be that the press is creating these fake stories to mislead us.

After all, every previous president has been very careful to have his words reviewed by a number of people in his cabinet. Certainly none of those pronouncements could be distilled into the 140 character limit of Twitter. So it must be that these reports are false. So please- do something about this. I'm tired of hearing how the president of this great country is a juvenile idiot with no knowledge of how government works. This simply cannot be the case.

I'm suck in the airport with this Trumpanzee...

We are both waiting for our plane home. I can hear him way down the hall expounding on "that Obama" and how Trump is so Superior. I'm starting to hunt through my luggage for an air sickness bag, thinking this will be a long Damn flight when I see him get in line for the Houston plane.

Of course, that makes sense. Now I can smile knowing this twit won't be on my flight from Taipei to Seattle.

How do people like that still exist?

I have my doubts about CNN

So I'm stuck over in Japan as the Doturd and his GOP lackeys further attempt to destroy our country. The headlines over here on CNN are all behind 45 and his awful ways. What you are seeing in the states is very different than what the rest of the world sees from CNN.

This pisses me off. Sorry for the language.

Moore says they are lying because they waited 40 years

Yet that is very normal for molestation victims, male and female. Look at what had happened with all the victims from the Catholic Church. Remember this when you go to the polls this week, and ask yourself if you are going to support a pedophile.

Where are the generals?

So where are those brave men in uniform who promised to keep Trump from doing stupid shit to our country. They seem to have placed their balls in the care of Putin just like the small handed vulgarian.

What is our Ass Clown doing today?

I'm over here in Japan (with a shitty apple keyboard) and since I'm across the International Date Line I'm wondering what has our orange Groper done today to embarrass us? it's about time he woke up and twitted his thoughts to us while on the krapper.

What does the world like about us?

I am in the Netherlands today and I had a long conversation with 6 people from Spain and France about "my country". I began with the statement that I did NOT vote for that jackass. After much discussion back and forth, it was decided that there are three great things about the US.
1. Our Constitution
2. Our Jazz
3. Our baseball. This one gathered the most discussion time. They are all passionate about baseball. Even the women.

It was a universal truth that our political system is corrupt, we all agreed to that. BTW, they all agreed the Macron is a POS. I was surprised to hear that, but they feel that he could not care at all for the common man.

So what do we like, and what are we willing to fight for? I hope it's more than baseball.

US leak of Manchester attacker's name strikes new blow to intelligence sharing

Source: The Guardian

American officials have been criticised for leaking the identity of the Manchester bomber before British police officially named him.

Salman Abedi was identified in media reports that attributed “US officials” as the source even as their British counterparts remained tight-lipped.

The disclosures renewed concerns over leaks from Donald Trump’s administration two weeks after the US president revealed classified information, apparently from Israel, to Russia’s foreign minister in a White House meeting. Critics warn that US allies may be less willing to share intelligence in the future.

Although UK journalists had Abedi’s name, the UK government and Greater Manchester police declined to confirm it more than two hours after it appeared in the US press. Earlier in the day, the government indicated it might not release the name at all on Tuesday because the investigation was continuing.
