Defying Trump Administration, Calif. Offers Federal Workers Unemployment Benefits

Source: NPR

California Gov. Gavin Newsom says the Trump administration has told states they can't offer unemployment benefits to federal employees who are required to report to work without pay during the government shutdown.

Newsom called a letter sent to states by the U.S. Department of Labor "jaw-dropping and extraordinary" as he met with TSA workers at the Sacramento International Airport Thursday afternoon. "So, the good news is, we're going to do it, and shame on them."

The governor explained that California will offer the workers unemployment coverage, despite the federal government telling the state it can't do so for workers still on the job. Newsom says he believes California is on strong legal footing.

There's a picture of Newsom hugging one of the TSA workers at the Sacramento airport. I love this guy.

Holy hell, they're rebooting "infrastructure Week". Again.

On Rachel's sign-off tonight she announced this. Also that the last IW's were overshadowed by:

1) Firing Comey
2) "Very Fine People on Both Sides
3) Revelations about paying off a porn star

Hold on to your butts!

Assholes like to have someone tell them it's okay to be an asshole

Who knew our country was so full of jerks? Someone like Obama makes assholes feel shame, and they hate that.

It's like watching Jerry Springer to make your own family & relationships seems "not so bad".

Something else I'd like Michael Cohen to help us all understand: Loyalty to Trump

I utterly fail to understand why anyone would be loyal to someone so vain, self-absorbed, incapable of humility or empathy, who gaslights and blames victims, who is so OBVIOUSLY full of shit and a con artist.

Why do we need this information? Because if someone can actually explain it, maybe we can use it against Trump's blind, stupid, arrogant followers.

Michael Cohen is famous for saying he'd "take a bullet for Mistah Trump". Not until Trump left Cohen swinging in the wind and facing dozens of years in prison, did that fool see the light and become (his words) a "patriot".

What will it take for 1/3 of America to do the same?

Waiting breathlessly to see how Melanie will decorate the WH this year.

Last year I believe the theme was "Have yourself a bleary little Christmas (instead of mistletoe, she went with the world's largest cameltoe)".

Yeah, pretty sure that was it.

Ivanka calls for prison reform for women as demands to Lock Her Up over email scandal continue

Source: TheUnitedStatesBlues.com

President Donald Trump’s attacks on Hillary Clinton came back to haunt him this week after his daughter Ivanka was exposed for using personal email to conduct government business. And the calls to “lock her up” have been raining down.

In the mother of all hypocrisies, Ivanka was caught using her private email account for much of 2017.

When's the last time you mooned someone? Or got mooned?

"mooning" friends or even strangers was such a quintessential mid-70's thing, often done in the rear window of a car as an alternative to "flipping the bird" as a response to some minor traffic faux-pas (or sometimes for no reason other than just to be funny). I haven't thought about it in decades.

But now we have one of those security doorbells that takes motion-sensor video, which goes straight to me & the spouse's cellphone. So, it's been game-on to see who can out-do each other..
