Yes, trump would try to enlist a foreign government to...

Now that more facts are in, here's a brief follow-up to my last post:

To the surprise of no one, trump would--and did--try to enlist the help of a foreign government in his efforts to get a second term.

Because every day brings a fresh outrage, it's easy to think that Ukraine Gate is just the latest trump transgression and that it will blow over.

I don't think so.

I will admit that it's a bit too early to see how this will go.

It's a big and multi-faceted affair.

But it very well could be trump's undoing. Don't think that it can't.

If you'd like to get up-to-date on the latest, this article from NPR would be a good place to start.

Trump and the fresh whistle blower outrage

So let's see a show of hands of everyone who's surprised about the latest outrage from Mango Mussolini.

You know, whole thing about a whistle blower coming forward and revealing that the squatter in our White House made some kind of dangerous, inappropriate promise to some foreign leader in a phone call...

Yeah, that outrage!

What! No one's raising their hand?!

Yeah, that's what I thought.

When he comes up with this crap, we do get outraged but then admit that it's just the kind of thing he does pretty much on a daily basis.

And he gets away with it every time.

Yes, this time could be different.

But don't bet the ranch on that.

Only Congress can put a stop to this madness.

But I'm not at all sure that they ever will. Or ever could.

The Senate--where the GOP holds a slim majority--will never turn on trump. Especially with #MoscowMitch in charge.

So on we go.

How many fresh outrages can this once-great Nation take?

I guess we're going to find out.

The Poser Prez steals from our military to...

Here's the latest story from our "Shocked But Not Surprised" file: our #LyingLoserPrez has found a way--with plenty of help from his sycophantic, complicit Rethuglican friends--to divert funding for military projects to build a few more miles of his expensive and ineffective wall.

There is no way that congress would have ever enabled this political stunt if anyone else was in the Oval Office.

No one else who's ever been--or would ever be--President would ever have considered or proposed such a folly, but I won't go there right now.

To get up-to-speed on this latest outrage from the hateful and incompetent fool who is occupying our White House, just click on this article.

It's Labor Day and you should...

It most certainly is Labor Day and you should take life easy today!

I'm off and I hope you're not having to put in your eight hours today.

If you'd like to know a bit more about the history of this auspicious holiday, just follow this link.

I'm so aware that we have some time today to just chill and maybe fire up the barbie because of the sacrifices of so many workers before us.

I do not--and never will--take that for granted.

Enjoy the day and take a moment to reflect on the importance of remembering that the working people in this country are one of the main reasons that America is great.

Best wishes to all of you who may pass your eyes over this post today.

Especially those of you who work for that paycheck.
