I think Buenos Ares is a lot more fun than Moscow. Moscow is pretty depressing. Really good Italian food. Lots of beef available. Hot babes. My former neighbors moved there to retire. (He was born there when his dad was stationed at the American embassy, so he had dual citizenship.) With the money from selling their Oregon house they bought a whole vineyard! They claim the free health care is great.

And Steven Seagal has lived in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana for a long time. He's been a fully commissioned Deputy Sheriff there for almost 20 years.

I see Trump is at it again:

Trump Sidelined Acting Spy Chief

He sacked his acting Director of National Intelligence when one of his underlings went and told the House Intel Committee that Russia was meddling again to get Trump reelected last Thursday. He was especially pissed that Adam Schiff heard the report. It was actually pretty moot, because the acting DNI had to go by March 12. But Trump took him out early to install a yes man as acting DNI.

Trump mostly uses acting positions so they don't have to be confirmed by the Senate. Which is pretty silly because the majority would line up to kiss his ass if he asked.

They have their tongues so far up Trump's ass, they can taste what he had for dinner. Hmm

I think the term "acting position" might not also refer to "acting" like in a play. I wonder if there is some organization that could award "actors" that work in the political field?

>kiss his ass

I was going to use a different expression, but I realized it was somewhat homophobic.

Amid all the sexual innuendo here I thought the "acting position" might be something from the Kama Sutra...

Is it possible to f*ck someone who's kissing your ass? Trump seems to be able to.

Would that be like an elongated reach-around? Hmm

Update on Trump's new pick for DNI: Besides being totally incompetent, turns out he will probably lose his security clearance for unregistered lobbying for an Eastern European strong man. This is one of the crimes Manafort is in prison for right now. Too bad Trump picked him! Now that people are looking at him he's going to lose his gig as ambassador to Germany.

I wonder if Congress could pass a law with veto-proof majorities just to prohibit filling positions without confirmation by the Senate. They might be crooks, but at least they are smart enough not to confirm the criminals Trump selects.
