Old man Huckabee comes across as shallow, almost foppish; the kind of guy who might start a bar fight and then run to hide behind the counter.

Some guys trying to sound thoughtfully and intellectually critical make observations that have no depth. Then someone comes along who does homework, makes a legitimate response. Old man Huckabee comes across as shallow, almost foppish; the kind of guy who might start a bar fight and then run to hide behind the counter.

I wonder which way the boomer wind is blowing for Sean Hannity.

No automatic alt text available.

Angry old white guys are pretty much all Hannity and Fox News has left … except for the wide-eyed gullibles who think alt-right and Alex Jones epitomize common sense.

The average age of the viewer of Hannity’s show is 68. He listed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Platform and effectively did the advertising to the boomers most likely to agree with her “agenda.”

Notice that “Support seniors” is considered “scary” by Sean.

Oh, and for those who want to ask with a grave voice, “How Ya Gonna Pay For It?” We have a sitting president willing to spend twice that much to pay for absolute junk.

Uh oh … They better send her to the HOW-TO-BE-A-CONGRESSPERSON-SCHOOL before letting her join the party clubhouse.

I know she’s not a Republican but Spokane’s sitting congressional representative, https://www.facebook.com/cathyforcongress/ could show her the ropes.

Recommended watching and listening. Only the dumbest in this country would take issue with this.

 

I am multilingual (English, Spanish, Russian, and Profanity) and no dumb white man or woman has EVER jumped in my face for not speaking “American,” whatever the hell that is.

Lawyer caught on video in anti-immigrant rant apologizes: ‘I am not racist’

The dumb lawyer was not about patriotism, love of country or even conservatism. This was about an immature adult preening before an internal imaginary audience he wanted to impress.

On Republican rationale for “reforming” health care, education, and all the other pious patriotic talk about supposedly wanting our country to “live within a budget” …
Hell that’s what most of us have always had to do (well those of us who learned how to spend less than we take in). We’ve always done that.
So how come we don’t look at all our budget expenses and adjust spending according to legitimate Constitutional priorities , i.e. the “insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare” stuff?
How much – regardless of which party is in charge – are we spending on the following … and why?
Ask your Congresspersons that question. Ask them to tell you why we need to spend so much on this particular budget item at the expense of, say, universal health care, free college education, housing solutions for homelessness.

These ain’t no Harlem Globetrotters … hell they ain’t even the Pomona Polecats!!

 
 
 
Trump and his all stars: Flynn, Bannon, Conway, DeVos … 
and now Sessions. Sitting in last place … awe come on!!!

My Congresswoman from the 5th Congressional District, Cathy McMorris Rogers, needs to be sent to the minors. She plays ball for a self-styled Washington all-star team that seems to have no understanding of the rules and philosophy of the civic game of governance.

These particular all-stars are a collection of self-labeled  konservatives who still struggle with stick shifts and complicated words containing more than five letters.

These guys are hoping we won’t have noticed just how “all-star” they are now 6 weeks into their watch. They seem to want the country to stagger forward handicapped by a flat tire at the highest level of our leadership vehicle.

We are getting no correct-direction signals from any of these leaders. They have no skill and are not up to the task of leading, let alone even managing difficulties. Despite the lop-sided political advantage of our most recent national election and the temerity and caution of the opposition party, these supposedly wise Republican leaders and strategists are demonstrating an incredible lack of skill at managing the affairs of state.

As James T. Kirk goaded Khan, “You [Republicans] just … keep … missing … the target.”

If there is such as thing as a “normal situation” in this country I could say that “normally” when one party emerges victorious in an election, those who voted for the other party can take comfort in the general high quality, integrity and bi-partisan value of governing wisdom of those who did win.

Not this time.

These guys make it look like this country elected the Washington Generals instead of the Harlem Globetrotters. They can’t dribble, can’t shoot and certainly can’t play team-oriented ball.

They’re constantly out of bounds, palming the ball, committing foolish and egregious personal fouls and falling further and further behind on the scoreboard.

They try to play on only one end of the court where the bleachers are full of fanatics who want to change the way the game is played, want to change who can play and want to change what the public address system is allowed to broadcast.

If you look down their bench, you don’t see anyone riding the pines capable of substituting for the fumblers on the floor.

You do see some of those benchwarmers nursing dreams of future stardom by focusing on the bleachers when they should be focusing on the game itself.

You see flashes in the pan for whom the team’s financial backers have big plans and lots of money but also a limited self-serving priority of filling more bleachers rather than championship rings.

Not the players …

Not the coaches …

Not the owners …

… none of them show skill, wisdom or even a concern that the team remain viable, competitive and effective.

We’re not witnessing the creation of any kind of winning tradition here in the spirit of the Cavaliers,  Cubs, or Patriots.

Oh no!!

We’re looking at having to endure years of the 1960’s Mets when Casey Stengel asked, “Can’t anyone here play this game?

Advice … Don’t vote with your mind asleep

Good heavens. You heard his promises. You bought his koolaid. You voted for him. Why the hell are you all afraidy and calling Planned Parenthood now?

THE RIGHT WING Shocked Trump Voters Are Calling Planned Parenthood Apparently, they had no idea they might lose their access to health care.

“Mike Pence unfortunately has said he would end that access to care… I run into women every single day who say, ‘You know that Planned Parenthood is the place I go for my annual exam; I don’t know where we’d go without you.'”

And while the battle to defund Planned Parenthood is heavily partisan, the organization’s clients are not.

“The women who come to Planned Parenthood, they are Republicans, they’re Democrats, they’re Trump voters. These are women who had no idea that their health care access was at stake,” Richards noted.

One week before the election, a Politico poll showed that, unlike Republicans in Congress, Trump voters predominantly support federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

“We’re seeing this as women are calling us and saying, ‘I voted for Donald Trump, but I had no idea I might lose my access to health care’; that’s the point we’re going to be making,” Richards explained.
