My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I’m with Bill Maher here. Enough is enough snowflakes! Why don’t commentators on the right ever apologize for the lies that they spew.
Mika Brzezinski called it like it is. You ignore the death of add American residents, a man who wrote for one of the nation’s leading newspapers, a man who wrote an English so that we can understand, then you are exactly what she said the buttboy of a wannabe dictator secretary pompeo.
That being said, I think the NFL is inexcusable. we have turned these poor men into gladiators who for a lot of money destroy their brains and live out their lives for the most part in misery. The NFL needs to take ownership of their issues with brain injuries or it should no longer be on network television. If someone wants to pay for it then let it be on pay-per-view but advertisers should stop advertising on NFL games. They might as well be advertising on shows about child molesting.
I guess Putin is testing to see whether or not he got his money’s worth in the election of Donald Trump. Let’s see how quickly Donald Trump responds to this or says that this is an internal matter and not one that has anything to do with the American people. That is full BS. It is the policy of the United States to try to keep the Nations that split off from the Soviet Union free and independent. It is the policy of Donald Trump’s boss, Putin, to bring as many into his fold again as possible. Russia is a dying country with very few resources. The resource they had been banking on is the resource that has become the least needed, oil. I found it ironic when the Tangerine nightmare in the White House said that the price of oil has gone down because of him, I’m sure this is not making his overlord happy. you remember those Winter Olympics, Putin borrow the money for those Winter Olympics with the understanding that oil would stay at $125 a barrel or more, and that’s not what’s happening.
So now Trump is being tested.
Was he worth the investment by Putin for putting him in the White House?
Can’t wait to watch the Republicans try to ignore the fact that Putin is trying to bring back the Soviet Union.
Trump tore up our nuclear arms agreement with Russia. What else is this unhinged man going to do?
I fear that Trump will go along with whatever Russia wants because as his biggest supporter, hannity says, they have the pee tape.
When the asshole who is in the White House was running for president he kept saying how much he loves the gays he said it over and over again. It’s why he is gotten the moniker of Liar in Chief.
He doesn’t want people to get any rights other than the ones who voted for him. He doesn’t care about the 60% of the United States did not vote for him. Look what he’s doing to California. He is a disgrace and I wish the network’s would stop covering every morsel that comes out of that man’s hole in his face. I’m sorry I usually I’m not this angry but this is beyond the pale.
The Israeli military was one of the first to allow gays lesbians and transgender to be in their military. Nobody can say that the Israeli military is weaker for it. As a matter of fact the statistics show that militaries that are inclusive have a better moral and longer stays in the military. Our own pentagon is not in favor of this. The Tangerine nightmare in the White House is playing to his base and stirring up anti-gay sentiments in those 40% that voted for him. Shame on him.
I cannot express in words how much I miss the Obamas in the White House.
As a gay American when we got the right to get married it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever had. It’s bittersweet for me, I’ll be 65 in April and my chances of getting married are very low. People ask me why I never had children, in the years that I would have wanted to adopt a child it was illegal for me to do so. It’s amazing how a government can change your life. I don’t regret anything but I’ve got to be honest to say that it would have been nice to have more of a family around me. I live alone in Los Angeles and my closest relative his in France.
bravo to Michelle Obama for being so open in her book. I ordered you to buy it.
When the affordable Care act was being crafted into a law that has made millions and millions of people happy the Republicans insisted on calling it Obamacare. Now that it is a success they seem to be wanting to go back to the ACA.
Well here’s my prediction in 2018: by the timewe vote in 2020 for president will be right in the middle of the Trump Recession. Others would like to call it something else but I finally think we should call it what it is the Trump Recession.
Look, I don’t wish a recession upon our country and our world anymore and the next guy. But when everything is inflated, like the price of real estate and the stock market then there tends to be a crush. and I think the crash is going to be coming sooner than later. And there will only be one person to blame for it Donald Trump. He inherited a wonderful economy from President Obama and he squandered it just as he squandered any hope in bringing our country together.
Even the Willie Horton ad was never pulled off the air. And if something that is in favor of trump is pulled off the air by Fox, you know it was bad. The divider in Chief loses another one of his battles. We need to make sure he doesn’t win the war. It’s amazing that we have a president who actually wants us to hate each other and that’s what he is. When he demonizes Democrats as the other, does he not realize that more than half the country Falls underneath that label?
I think I first heard the term Jews for Jesus when I was in my teens. I figured it was another recruiting ploy buy the Evangelistic Christian Community. Jews don’t try to bring people within our religion, we don’t promote conversions. So that’s why it’s so awesome to have people who claim to be Jewish but are not. They use the term Rabbi but they’re not. I truly believe that Jesus Christ was a wonderful wonderful man. But I don’t believe that he is the Son of God, nor do I really believe in organized religion anymore. But my roots are Jewish and this upsets me to no end.
Mike Pence is more evil than Donald Trump ever thought of being. Mike Pence thinks that’s Jews should become Christian if they want to go to heaven. We Jews don’t have a heaven and hell, we believe that we live in the memories of those we leave behind. Leave good memories and you’re in a happy place otherwise not so much. Mike Pence is another divider, and I am so insulted by his bringing a Jews for Jesus rabbi to supposedly represent the Jewish community.
I’m old enough to remember when the federal government was protecting our environment. Oh wait, that was two years ago. I guess I know I’m not that old after all. it’s so sad to see these headlines come out of our government one after the other. Not taking into consideration the fact that we want a future for our kids and grandkids. We want a planet that is vibrant and alive. But the Tangerine nightmare in the white house once a gold-plated home for himself and he wants to feel his pockets with emollient money.
the Republican party is bankrupt. Did you not realize that they are going to lose any vestige of support from young people because of their practices and policies. Young people don’t forget. I remember the first time I voted for President in 1972 for George McGovern and I have not forgotten the feeling of losing and I don’t want to feel that again. Young people feel the same and they are not crisis actors they are potential and future voters and I hope they come out on November 6th and vote the bums out.
My divorce from Facebook is coming up on a year. I deactivated, deleted or however you want to say my Facebook account on November 11th 2017. I have not regretted it one minute. What I have seen his how ubiquitous Facebook has become. I cannot interact with the Stonewall Democratic party here in Los Angeles without Facebookas well as someone who does have Facebook. That being said the problems with Facebook are so ingrained that I truly believe it’s going to take a massive Exodus for them to start listening to us.
Oh and I did lose 55 pounds after getting rid of it and have not gained another pound. Kudos to me.
