Feeling sad

I’m going to give posting a miss today.  My heart isn’t in it.  We just got photos of the devastation our loved ones (2 retired sisters living in the home their dad built) experienced.

They were safe, having gone out of state for the eclipse, and have a place to stay (another sister who wasn’t flooded).  But they (and everyone in their neighborhood) lost EVERYTHING.

I’m signed up to make a quilt and make new photo albums from whatever images were digitized and stored off-site.  I’m really glad to finally have something I can DO to help somebody down there.  But, dear Lord, these photos make me want to weep.

Must-Miss Television

It is doubtful that anyone who visits here would be a fan of CNN. It takes an absence of intelligence, a willingness to be knowingly lied to, and the gag reflex of a billy goat to engage in such self-inflicted torture. Nonetheless, the professional haters never rest.

Of Course: CNN to Air New Reagan-Bashing Film on Labor Day

On Labor Day, CNN will air The Reagan Show, a new film bashing the 40th president. In case you thought it would be anything other than hostile, the ads make the goal clear. A clip of Reagan saying, “Together we will make America great again,” is paired with a blurb from the website Screen Daily: “An elaborately constructed parable for the Trump era.”
National Review exposed just how nasty the documentary is:
The continuing popularity of President Reagan is a source of profound irritation and unease to liberals. To assuage their pain, they have gone back to their initial rationalization for how Reagan became so beloved: He cheated. Though a lousy actor, he nonetheless fooled the common man with his mesmeric performing skills. It’s the old false-consciousness story: If we liked the man, trickery must have been involved.

AND IN OTHER NEWS:
Report: Trump Will End DACA With Six Month Delay

The sources stated that Trump will delay enforcement for six months and give Congress the opportunity to write proper immigration legislation.
Remember, DACA is not a law or even an Executive Order. All DACA is a Department of Homeland Security policy that officials announced via memo.

Continetti: I Think We Might See the End of DACA in the Coming Months

Mnuchin Says Economy Will Be Fine Without DACA Ahead Of Trump Announcement
Mnuchin was asked about the letter on “Fox News Sunday,” and replied: “As it relates to the economic impact, I am less concerned about the economic impact. We’ll make sure that we have plenty of workers in this economy. We want to put more people back to work. There’s a lot of people that left the workforce and our objective is to bring them back into the workforce.

MTP Panelist Claims DACA Opposition by Trump Base Driven by Race
DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING, RIGHT?
According to the professor, Trump was only playing to his base who only cared about DACA because they were white. “We can think about the policy issues but there is this kind of cultural undertow,” he asserted.
“This is really red meat to his base that it’s really speaking to a kind of deep seated cultural anxiety about the changing nature of the country,” he claimed. “That this immigration issue is not about securing the border and it’s not about jobs, it’s not about fixing a bad immigration policy.”

Journalist: “Race and Class . . . Most Significant Aspects” of Hurricane Harvey
JOURNALIST? MORE LIKE RACE-HUSTLING PIMP
And here we thought that saving lives and rebuilding a devastated area should be the focus . . . Proving that when you wield an anti-racism hammer, everything looks like a nail, a guest on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning declared that “race and class . . are the most significant aspects of this particular hurricane.”
The guest in question, Charles D. Ellison, is the Washington correspondent of The Philadelphia Tribune, and hosts a show on WURD, an African-American owned radio station in Philly.

REMEMBER WHEN TEACHERS TAUGHT THE BASICS INSTEAD OF BUTTHURT LIBERAL PROPAGANDA?

John McCain Finds Strength to Fly to Italy to Trash Donald Trump at International Forum

The #FakeNews liberal media is sure gonna miss John McCain.
As hard as others try, there’s really just no one to take his place trashing Republicans with such venom. Although, Ben Sasse, Jeff Flake, and Lindsey Graham are working to change that.

Jackson: Trump Can’t Get Into ‘Jesus’s Kingdom’
CALLING JACKSON AND SHARPTON “REVERWND” IS LIKE CALLING JEFFREY DAHMER A CHEF

Before Raddatz began pushing for DACA, she began her segment by highlighting the recovery efforts and shadowed a local police chief has he aided a shelter. “But the chief’s work to help evacuees may be complicated by a new challenge.
