So Much Stuff, So Little Time

Fighting the urge to take a nap. Had to wake up to have breakfast with my uncles. It may seem a bother, but one day it will no longer be possible. Put in that perspective, it’s really no bother at all.

Angry GOP donors close their wallets

‘I’m sick and tired of nothing happening,’ one contributor says of the party’s legislative failures
These elitists may not pay us commoners much mind, but money talks, as they say.
“Anybody who was there knew that I was not happy. And I don’t think anybody was happy. How could you be?” said Wachtell, who has previously given over $2,000 to McConnell but recently stopped donating to Senate GOP causes. “You’re never going to get a more sympathetic Republican than I am. But I’m sick and tired of nothing happening.”

Cuomo’s on-air meltdown defending CNN against fake news charge does not disappoint
Betraying any pretense of impartiality he may have had, Cuomo, a news anchor, then declared that the federal government’s relief efforts in Puerto Rico were inadequate — this coming from a network that exists almost entirely for the purpose of destroying this president.

Schumer Asks Trump to ‘Break from the NRA…And Work With Us’
Schumer described the National Rifle Association, a group that supports Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms, as a swamp:
“Look, this is, I mean, this is the swamp. A small, powerful lobby that represents a vast minority, a very small minority of Americans, seems to have a stranglehold on the Republican Party. And, that shouldn’t be.

House passes budget, paving way for tax reform
In a 219-206 vote, lawmakers approved a budget resolution for 2018 that sets up a process for shielding the GOP tax bill from a filibuster in the Senate.
A total of 18 Republicans voted against the resolution, along with all the Democrats who were present.
GOP lawmakers hailed the vote as meaningful because of the tax measure.

Street Artist Targets Jimmy Kimmel

“Sabo” created posters of Kimmel looking like a young Johnny Depp from the 1990 movie ‘Cry-Baby.’

Holy Hillary!I’m reminded of the story about a holy missionary who died and was received in Heaven by a crowd of angels and saints. Soon, a trumpet sounded, and everyone but his guardian angel left to join a much larger crowd greeting a scowling unpleasant-looking man. The bewildered priest turned to the angel, who said, “Don’t be surprised. He’s no saint, but he saved far more souls than you. He was a notoriously reckless driver, and wherever he drove, people prayed.” So it was with Hillary.

Democrats ‘Throw Tantrum,’ Skip VA Event Because of a Group They Don’t Like
Then, on Tuesday, Democrats on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee skipped out on what The Military Times described as a “supposedly friendly roundtable discussion” over how to reform the Veterans Affairs agency.
Why? Because Concerned Veterans for America was there – and the group has ties to Republicans.

KISS rocks the crowd, stops concert for a rousing Pledge of Allegiance
In a day when overpaid millionaire NFL players have made it “cool” to disrespect our country and flag, it’s good to see some entertainers still willing to publicly give due reverence to the symbols that represent not only our beloved nation, but the men and women who sacrifice to keep America free.

A Commander to Be Proud Of

Barack Obama never hid his abject contempt for our military. Like the spineless coward that he is, he announced that once he ascended to his throne he would cut and run from Iraq, removing the only safeguard those people had from the savagery that is ISIS. All the blood and treasure that we sacrificed to try to stabilize that country went for nothing as he left billions in military assets which the terrorists used to butcher innocent men, women, and children. He slashed our manpower, cut their budgets, and reduced our defenses to a point we could not sustain a war on two fronts. He knew not a damn thing about military strategy, but ignored what his generals, who knew what they were doing. He was just sooo damn smart. And the media went right along with him. I prayed for our warriors like Chrissy’s daughters and Grunt’s son.
Of all the people who breathed a sigh of relief when Trump was elected, our soldiers were among those most pleased. They knew they finally had a Commander-in-Chief who loved and respected them.

Obama never shied away from slapping our people in the face

THEN ALONG CAME THAT TRUMP GUY
Trump Honors Veterans At Celebrate Freedom Rally

President Donald Trump delivered an Independence Day address honoring American veterans — hundreds of whom came from the Washington, D.C. area to attend the “Celebrate Freedom Rally” at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
“America is a land rich with heroes,” said Trump at the event, which included wounded warriors who are patients at the Walter Reed Medical Center.
During his speech, the president personally saluted World War II veteran Harry Miller for his lifelong service and wounded warrior Luis Avila. Miller enlisted in the reserves at 15, even though he was not old enough to serve. He fought in Europe and in The Battle of the Bulge. Avila, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a fifth deployment when he was wounded, losing his leg, during an intelligence reconnaissance mission.

Here’s a little more about Harry Miller

Here’s a little more about Luis Avila

Hussein Obama used to attend Freedom Rally’s too

 

OVER THE WEEKEND THERE WERE “IMPEACH TRUMP” RALLIES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, WELL PUBLICIZED AND REPORTED ON BY THE MEDIA WHORES. THERE WAS NOT A WORD MENTIONED ABOUT THE FREEDOM RALLY OR THE FACT WE ARE LOSING THE GREATEST GENERATION AT AN ALARMING RATE. SOON THEY WILL ALL BE GONE AND WE WILL NEVER SEE ANYTHING LIKE THEM AGAIN. THEY HAD A GOOD SUPPLY OF SOMETHING THIS NATION HAS LITTLE OF… GUTS. THE WILL TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT. PUTTING THEIR COUNTRY ABOVE THEIR OWN SAFETY. ALL BECAUSE THEY CONSIDERED IT THEIR DUTY. WE BLESS AND HONOR THEM AND THE FAMILIES WHO SUFFERED WITH THEM.

Violent Rhetoric

Dems can’t follow their own advice to tone down the rhetoric in the name of not encouraging extremists to get violent.

After the Senate’s health care bill came out, Bernie Sanders tweeted,

2017_06 23 Sanders tweet

In other “Democrats go lower” news …

  • Hillary Clinton tweeted, “Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they’re the death party.”
  • Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy tweeted, “No tweaks by amendment can fix this monstrosity. If you vote for this evil, intellectually bankrupt bill, it will ruin millions of lives.”
  • A Rolling Stone writer really jumped the shark with this tweeted absurdity: “Trump and the Republicans want to pass a bill that would kill far more Americans than ISIS and al Qaeda could ever dream about.”

Never mind that approximately 6.5 million uninsured Americans were forced to pay $3 billion in penalties to the IRS because they couldn’t afford Obamacare plans.

And never mind that 18 of the 23 Obamacare co-ops have collapsed.

And also never mind that the only (born) Americans I’ve heard of who actually died because of a Democrat-run health care program were veterans who couldn’t get appointments at the VA.

Where were all those Democrats?

Lefties are melting down about Trumpcare.  Funny how they didn’t give so much of a toot about the MILLIONS whose premiums became unaffordable and/or who lost their plans and their doctors under Obamacare.  Also, this:

Still Keeping Promises

Vets debt toon

Today, President Trump created a new office in the Department of Veterans Affairs tasked with identifying and weeding out poorly performing employees.

It will also be tasked with protecting whistle blowers from retaliation and conducting an internal review of the VA to make eliminate unnecessary duplication of services.

The VA has been criticized for years for failing to quickly fire problematic employees, and Trump repeatedly vowed on the campaign trail that he would increase accountability at the VA.

I’m enthused.  I hope it actually works.

Keeping Promises

April 18, 2017:  President Trump signed his “Buy American and Hire American” executive order to maximize the use of American-made goods and American workers in all Federal financial assistance awards and Federal procurements.

April 19, 2017: President Trump signed into law S. 544: The Veterans Choice Program Extension and Improvement Act, so that more veterans can see the doctor of their choice and not have to wait and travel long distances for VA care.

This mom and sister to two wounded veterans is needing a tissue after listening to President Trump’s remarks and the follow-up comments by men at the signing.  “A nation will be judged by how it treats its veterans.”

Loathesome Scumbag

2017_03 28 Drexel prof tweet

On Christmas Eve, 2016, this twit tweeted, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.”

Drexel University published an apology and he deleted the tweet, which he said had been a joke.  Yeah, right.

Cuz genocide is always such a knee slapper and also those times he tweeted, “Abolish the White Race” and “We need more riots. Riots work.”

He’s white, in case you were curious.

Other responses to his latest vile tweet:

  • He’s greater than you will ever hope to be. That’s what is triggering your gag reflex.
  • His service gives you the ability to tweet absurd things like this.
  • I bet those gross videos of soldiers coming home and surprising their kids just make your skin crawl, huh!?
  • It must suck to be so bitter and resentful of men who’ve actually made a difference in this world.
  • I hope some day you’ll come to be deeply ashamed of the man you are today.
  • Imagine being a parent spending $42,000 to send your kid to Drexel.

And my personal favorite:
