President Trump is a Pig - Dana Milbank

Powerful words as Milbank parallels the Trump regime to George Orwell's "Animal Farm". This is spot on. And scary.

Donnie wants to sell you a war plane

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration is nearing completion of a new “Buy American” plan that calls for U.S. military attaches and diplomats to help drum up billions of dollars more in business overseas for the American weapons industry, going beyond the assistance they currently provide, U.S. officials said.

Trump decree: All Salvadorans must Leave

LOS ANGELES — Nearly 200,000 people from El Salvador who have been allowed to live in the United States for more than a decade must leave the country, government officials announced Monday. It is the Trump administration’s latest reversal of years of immigration policies and one of the most consequential to date.

Homeland security officials said that they were ending a humanitarian program, known as Temporary Protected Status, for Salvadorans who have been allowed to live and work legally in the United States since a pair of devastating earthquakes struck their country in 2001.

Salvadorans were by far the largest group of foreigners benefiting from temporary protected status, which shielded them from deportation if they had arrived in the United States illegally. The decision came just weeks after more than 45,000 Haitians, the second largest group, lost protections granted after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, and it suggested that others in the program, namely Hondurans, may soon lose them as well. Nicaraguans lost their protections last year.

In the days leading up to the decision, immigrant advocates and the El Salvadoran government pleaded for the United States to extend the program, as it has several times since 2001, saying that conditions in El Salvador were still dire. A sense of dread gripped Salvadorans and their employers in California, Texas, Virginia and elsewhere.

“We had hope that if we worked hard, paid our taxes and didn’t get in trouble we would be allowed to stay,” said Veronica Lagunas, 39, a Salvadoran who works overnight cleaning offices in Los Angeles, has two children born in the United States and owns a mobile home.

My thoughts: I thought Donnie was only going to get rid of the "bad hombres", not law-abiding tax paying citizens with young children. Another one of his lies. He just wants to "Make America White Again."

Diabetes Shouldn't Bankrupt You

Nor should any other chronic health condition.

We are so far behind when it comes to caring for our citizens. Donnie is always saying "America First" but he sure doesn't mean "Americans First".

Sunday breakfast

I got some ambition today and mixed up a spinach-mushroom-and-feta quiche.

Ten thirty is the perfect time to eat a weekend breakfast, lol.

The advantage to this is that I'll have breakfast for myself all made for the week, now, since my hubby and sons won't touch this dish with a ten foot pole.

What's your go-to breakfast during the week?

I'm talking Monday thru Friday, not weekends when you may sleep in and pig out on Belgian waffles, bacon, etc. lol

I don't feel like eating anything until around 10:00. Coffee comes first. If I eat at all before noon, it's a piece of fruit such as a banana or some yogurt scooped out of the big carton while standing at the sink and watching my bird feeder.

My spouse can roll right out of bed and eat a seven course meal. And he's very fit and lean!

A shameful statistic for Ohio

I'd like to know what all the zealous Ohio "pro-lifers' are doing to combat this issue. Typically, all they do is harrass women going into PP clinics.
