Trump Budget Cuts Put Struggling Americans on Edge
By SABRINA TAVERNISE and TRIP GABRIELMARCH 17, 2017
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/17/us/trump-budget-cuts.html?

One of many cuts in President Trump's new budget proposal that would inflict the deepest pain on the most vulnerable Americans — a great number of whom voted for him.

"I understand what he's trying to do, but I think he's just not stopping to think that there are people caught in the middle he is really going to hurt," said Ms. Feltner, 57, who was a nurse for 25 years and voted for Mr. Trump.

Blimey. Trump's and Merkel's presser and posing for the cameras was one of the most embarrassing things ever seen in international politics. Not only did he admit to the US tapping the German chancellor, he also admitted to getting his 'facts' from Fox News, the news equivalent of persistent diarrhoea and as we all know, a right-wing mouthpiece.

The sight of Trump not only refusing to even look at Merkel or meet her gaze as they sat in front of the cameras was one thing, but deliberately ignoring here when she asked if he wanted to shake hands was simply pig ignorant. Of course, his inferiority complex must have been on Defcon 1 being in the presence of an intellectually superior (Merkel has a PhD in quantum chemistry), internationally respected and very experienced world leader. The fact that world leader is a woman must have rattled his toddler's cage good and proper.

What a shocker.

Yep, with the AHCA, which is basically a massive roll-back in health coverage for the poorer and older members of society and a massive tax cut for the wealthier members of society, it should be obvious to Trump supporters that they've used their "dirty hands" to grab their ankles for Donal-Jerk, his wealthy friends and the GOP but, sadly. it probably isn't.

And then there are the Trump supporters that don't have the intelligence God gave to the turnip:

Trump supporters in the heartland fear being left behind by GOP health plan.

Janice Phelps, a 60-year-old disabled factory worker in Evansville, Indiana, knows how expensive healthcare is... [but] Medicaid and Medicare, which aid the poor and the elderly – paid for nearly all of it.

Yet, those programs are now threatened by the men she voted for: Donald Trump and former Indiana governor Mike Pence. Dramatic changes are just part of the reforms in a Republican bill leaders are trying to force through Congress at lightning speed.

Though Phelps said she would support Trump even if it passed, she is upset by the idea of Medicaid cuts.

During his White House press briefing later in the day, Spicer was asked about Trump's previous claims that positive job reports under the Obama administration were "phony or totally fiction."

"I talked to the president prior to this, and he said to quote them very clearly. They may have been phony in the past, but it's very real now," Spicer replied, prompting laughter from reporters in the room.'

"Trump said that "122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!" However, more more than 90% of those detainees were released during the George W. Bush administration, not that of Obama."

The 25th amendment can remove Trump for having a pathological lying condition that is clearly effecting Donald on a daily basis.

Trump is now more incapacitated than Reagan with his Alzheimer condition. I know the defense arguments but they can not prove their case without exposing conspiratorial illegal acts.

This would be the most compassionate way to deal with Trump.
Every other alternative is more humiliating, dangerous and ruinous.

Gillymor, I did not know about the pyramid grain silos and the captured Africans by the Arabs in the east and western Africans kidnapped by Britain then Americans were actually immigrants thirsting for the American dream.

There is a phrase for alternative facts, reality and humanity, it is 'fucked up'.

OJ Simpson may get out of jail this Fall depending upon how his parole board rules. In this political climate perhaps he will finally expose the real killer as Obama (the Kenyan who impersonated the President of the United States). Trump got away with lying about a birth certificate, maybe OJ will get away with it too.
I bet Trump would love it. You see, Obama stole and wore OJ's shoes but wore his own gloves. very clever Barak, and to think you almost got away with it.


All kidding aside, did you know Trump's grandfather Fredrich Trump was deported from Bavaria? They have found his desperate letter of reconsideration to the King of Bavaria.   Surreal revenge?

One of the most disturbing parts of Donal-Jerk's speech the other night occurred when, with one of the clumsiest acronyms you'll ever see, he announced the formation of VOICE (Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement) based on an Alternative Fact:

(from the article) "Singling out the crimes of immigrant communities serves no legitimate public safety purpose, since immigrants are actually less likely to commit a crime than non-immigrants. Likewise, 56 percent of all deportations occur without the incidence of any crime committed whatsoever, and less than 12 percent of deportations involved what most would call a "serious crime" or class 1 offense. Anyone trying to justify increased deportations with immigrant crime are arguing against themselves, because the vast majority of deportations have nothing to do with serious crime. Creating this hate-list will do nothing except provide official government sanction to the opinions of white supremacist groups and the alt-right."

The Trump/Bannon regime are setting up a phony scapegoat just as the Hitler/Goebbels regime did in the previous century. How long before we see a modern day Kristallnacht.

Trump - via Nathan Bedford Sessions - to Black folks: Screw You!

Mar 1, 2017

Attorney General Sessions announced a major policy change yesterday that will likely have broad and real consequences for people of color around the country. At a meeting of state attorneys general on Tuesday, Sessions said that the Justice Department would "pull back" on the federal scrutiny of police departments for civil rights violations against people of color. The new attorney general was dismissive of police perpetrated shootings

At a time when an alarming number of African Americans are dying in police custody, Sessions' speech served as evidence of a "further break" from the Obama-era Justice Department, which investigated several law enforcement departments and pressed reforms.

Jeff Sessions offered up some AF's, i.e. lies, regarding his contacts with the Russians during his confirmation hearings:

Story here

Why did both Sessions and Flynn lie under oath about contact with the Russians, it leads one to think there is some there there. At the very least Sessions needs to recuse himself from the investigation into the Russian involvement in the election and ideally he should resign or be fired as Top Cop. It's time for a Special Prosecutor and time also for both the heads of the House and Senate Intel committees, both advocates for the administration, to recuse themselves as well.

I didn't think there was an accusation of plagiarism but I am sensitive about the issue since school when a baseless accusation was made over my creative writing that followed me for years.

It was a tract written without spaces. You had to mentally make your own spaces but the trick was if you started from the first letter you read one story but if you started from the fourth letter it was an entirely different story. It was a very time consuming and intensive work that turned to ashes in my mouth.

I do not think that form of writing even exists in English so how could I have plagiarized? Perhaps my verbal expression did not match my writing. Nothing was known of dyslexia back then.

According to Yahoo Answers:

"Blood and Sand (1922) is a silent movie produced by Paramount Pictures, directed by Fred Niblo and starring Rudolph Valentino, Lila Lee, and Nita Naldi. It was based on the Spanish 1909 novel Blood and Sand (Sangre y arena) by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez. There is an earlier version of Blood and Sand (1916), filmed by Blasco Ibáñez himself, with the help of Max André. The "torero" die in arena with blood and sand."

You don't. Instead you tell them that laws/rules were made by some very frightened people who think creepy thoughts because they are basically scared people.

Dress and pee&poop just like everyone else and let the scared people feel as safe as they need to feel when they pee&poop. If those people are only thinking about you needing to pee&poop it is they who have a creepy problem, not you.

The scared people may call their reasons common sense but it is neither common or sense to have their creepy thoughts and fear.
