It's just all so tawdry and filthy

Filthy beyond words. There are just some things that I will not do. Some things are beneath my dignity and honor. I'm sure that's true for many other folks too. But not for Trump and those, who gravitate to his orbit. One is expected to lie, to cheat, to steal, to harm, to commit crimes, to cover-up crimes. Hell to even go to prison for him. Frankly, he needs to be tried for treason and executed. I'm thinking of how Louis XVI got his head held up and shown to the crowd after it was cut off. Of course, we don't do that in this country. But golly wouldn't it be supremely satisfying if we did?

I don't know how this will play out. Not very satisfying is my guess. The best that I hope for now is that he will simply not run for re-election.

What was it?

Nicole Wallace on MSNBC this morning asks "What was it?" Why did the Trumpsters all lie to the FBI about their contacts with Russians?

I think I know. It was the money. Money from corrupt Russian mobsters oligarchs. Access to their money as investments in projects in America. Ease in laundering their money in American real estate, financial instruments, businesses. Money for political campaigns. Money to buy politicians, pay lobbyists, pay off the debts of judges, politicians and their cronies and relatives. It was, and still is, all about the money.

Can we impeach please?

Can we just fucking impeach that monster? I know that the KGOP in the senate will not vote to remove him. But I don't care. It is past time, way way far past time, to show that monster and his neo-Fascist enablers that we fucking mean business. Can we also dump Barr, and Mnuchin. And while we're at it, can we dump Kavanaugh for lying to Congress?

I'm fed up with the chaos, lies, deceit, vanity, ugliness, stupidity, and venal treason. I have Trump fatigue. I have breast cancer. My truck was stolen and trashed. And I have spent the last week in telephone menu Hell trying to arrange to move into a house. I am stressed to the max -- to say the least.

Can we just please please, pretty please, impeach that monster? DAMN!

I'll bet Trump has never asked any of his cabinet officers what he can do to help.

When a dept has a thorny problem, I'll bet it never occurs to him to do anything to help.

Wouldn't it be ironic to have a gay POTUS?

The KGOP would shit bricks. And there's the gay 1st husband or 1st spouse. All the false evangelical prophets of the far right would preach hell, fire, and brimestone. Yikes, I think they would pray for disaster to strike.

Meanwhile, most Americans would go "ho-hum, twiddle-dee-dee." So far I like what I've seen of Mayor Pete. He hasn't dodged any questions, answered them well with discriminating awareness and aplomb. Hasn't resorted to throwing his competitors under the bus, or accused them of vile crap.

Moslem countries might find it difficult to shake his hand, but that's why we'll have a Sec of State, and a damned decent one, as opposed to the dreadful sycophant one we have now.

Buttigieg is not my top preferred candidate, but I sent him a few bucks anyway.

Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden

All day long the talking TV heads have just had to have their little segment and panel with "experts" on Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden.

I'm sick of it. Don't we have more important things to talk about? Ya know, real things that really matter. Like healthcare, minimum wage, our obscene military budget, opioid addiction, impure water, climate change?

So new rule. When the talking heads do their stupid Biden Biden Biden Biden Biden thing, change the channel or turn off the damn TV.

It's not really a scandal!

Warren's tax returns

Warren has posted 10 years of tax returns on her campaign web site with 2017 being the latest.

What about the war machine budget?

I haven't heard any of our candidates address the obscene budget for the war machine. Do we really need to spend that much on the military?



After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Clinton cut the military budget and sold it as a peace dividend. Let's face it, the military budget is the Republican jobs program. Jobs for Hughes and GE and General Dynamics, etc to develop more and more military systems. It's way past time to put a damper on the war machine.

Is euthanasia next?

Hitler used euthanasia to kill off the mentally and physically disabled long before he built the industrial gas-murder factories. In Trump's case, I doubt he would bat an eyelash, if people started dieing for lack of healthcare. In Trump's case, I think that it's more about not taxing his and rich people's money to provide healthcare for anyone. Ditto funding any safety net services.

I have the TV off right now

Usually, I'm pretty calm and don't get riled up, but today the news seems to be all KGOP hateful, vengeful, stupid day. Between killing Obamacare, crippling Special Olympics, hiding Fed reports on toxins to a wide range of species to threatening Rachel Maddow, it seems everyone in the KGOP looney bin has escaped. They just seem crazier than usual. Kinda depressing.
