Whither DACA?

The Internet seems to think Trump will announce Tuesday that all those people known as Dreamers, who were brought to America as children, will be deported. There may be a six-month delay before the actual expulsions begin in order to give Congress time to craft a law to validate their immigration status, it’s reported, but …

“Have a good time!”

Trump has no capacity for empathy, no understanding of people’s hardships, and no brains to figure out that since he has neither of those things he shouldn’t put himself in positions where they’re needed. He went to Texas today and met some real victims of the hurricane rather than just officials as he did last …

Trump’s Million

Trump pledges one million dollars of “personal money” to Harvey relief. Now, maybe he’s sincere. I note that millions of Americans have felt no need to publicize their donations to the American Red Cross, the Houston Food Bank or any other charity, but hey, when public figures make a big splashy donation others might be …

Pardon me?

Arpaio didn’t just let an order by a federal judge slip his mind. No, he deliberately violated it. Repeatedly. Specifically, Arpaio was convicted this July by Judge Susan Bolton of willfully and intentionally violating an order issued to him in 2011 by a different federal judge, G. Murray Snow. [snip] Snow issued a preliminary injunction …

Lies in the desert

Trump’s nonsensical speech at his rally in Phoenix could have been titled that. What lies could I mean? Well, Trump expressed frustration with efforts to negotiate with Canada and Mexico to improve NAFTA, saying he was more likely to terminate the deal. He also blamed “obstructionist Democrats” for standing in the way of funding for …

Bannon’s out, who’s next?

I think that Trump couldn’t stand the attention Bannon was getting and terminated him for that reason. We’ve seen that Trump doesn’t think anyone working for him should get any praise or even acknowledgment, sort of like the 1st Commandment on those stone tablets Moses got from the burning bush: “I am the President, thou …

Contest everything

After Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, VA, where a mob of white supremacists and Klansmen felt so enabled by the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency and the elevation of Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to the highest levels of power in the Trump Administration that they could march unmasked and …

Unite the Right LIVE UPDATES – Daily Stormer

The Daily Stormer is a neo-Nazi website which calls itself part of the alt-right. Here’s its slogan: Preparing for the race war since 2013. Here’s what one of its publishers wrote on its website at 3:46pm EDT today: 3:46 PM:Trump comments were good. He didn’t attack us. He just said the nation should come together. …

Life in the Age of Trump

Note: I really don’t think we need to do this. At least, I hope not. Build a bomb shelter. You need to find the most optimal location. In doing so, you need to consider the terrain, water levels, and distance from other structures. This includes location of sewer and electrical lines. Essentially, you want to …
