Bill Maher said last Friday night that Progressives need an axiom that can fit onto a hat. Here are my two suggestions:

Hat No. 1: Progressives: All races, all faces

Hat No. 2: Conservatives: If it's not white, it's not right.

America is already great but apparently Canada is a national security threat. Donald Trump seems to think the Canadians burned down the White House in 1812.


Why yes, of course they did, and the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

President Trump has announced that two defective food chillers aboard Air Force One will not be replaced, because the $24 million dollar cost is too high.

The two VC-25A chillers, which are custom made specifically for ONLY Air Force One, are part of five units which can store up to 3000 meals, which is enough to feed all 71 persons aboard for several weeks.
In times of war, an important aircraft might not be resupplied for weeks, even if it's on the ground.
And speaking of which:

The current Air Force One has had in flight refueling capability for a very long time now.
But guess what? The NEW Air Force One will NOT have it because the Trump administration deems it unnecessary.

Congress is questioning the wisdom of such a decision.




We can argue whether or not AF1 needs five mil-spec food chillers to supply three thousand meals, or less than five, and we can argue as to the cost justifications of freezing a sufficient number of Big Macs and KFC for the CiC and entourage, but in my humble opinion, cutting in flight fueling on the most important and most secure aircraft on the planet is, to put it bluntly:

RETARDED

Well, there were Canadians among the British forces that burned down the White House on August 24, 1814 (a date which I celebrate every year).

It was in retaliation for Yankee invaders burning down the town of York, Upper Canada (a site which became that of Toronto).

Sessions plan for decreasing immigration is to hold immigrant's kids, even if they are seeking asylum. They say "The kids will be taken care of".

I hear Trump has just the guy for that job: Jeffrey Epstein. He loves kids, and in fact he's been throwing parties for them for years.

Trump continued, “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it—Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Donald Trump is an array of cunning stunts...perpetrated on a bunch of running runts.

You know what I'm curious about? How the Evangelical community can support Sessions' tearing a baby away from their mother's breast while she is trying to feed it. Then deporting the mother back to be murdered. Do you send the baby back to be murdered with her? This is NOT the act of a Christian: This is the act of a monster.

And these deportees are not Muslim or anything. These are devout Christians!

I guess only people who think of themselves as Christian will worship the AntiChrist. Evangelicals need to stop and think what they are doing. Trump is not only going to destroy the Republican Party, he's going to destroy the Evangelical movement as well.

Oh c'mon. Evangelicals don't care if the babies are ripped-away for the simple reason that these people Jefferson Beauregard Sessions is acting upon are "illegal." The United States is God's Country by golly: God, Guns and Ammunition.

You must be here or visit here legally. Interlopers are not welcome. Hmm
