It's not that complicated...

Everyone is wondering why on earth after the Barr summery of the Mueller report came out, Donald Trump stepped all over it by dragging out the repeal of health care again.

The entire republican party was baffled.

They had just lost the House because dems ran on health care.

So, what was Mr. Trump thinking?


You don't know?

It's not that complicated.

Right before the letter came out, what was he going on and on about?

I'll give you a hint...he's dead!

Yep, this is all about John McCain.

If there is one thing we know for sure, Donald Trump can't let anything go.

He'll hold a grudge till he drops dead.

And he hates John McCain.

So the president, feeling embolden by Barr's letter decided to re fight this battle.

You know, the one with the dead guy.

John McCain is everything Donald Trump will never be.

He was and is respected.

He won his place in Congress legitimately.

He's a war hero.

And he cast the lone vote that screwed up ending Obamacare.

And that's what this is all about.

This is not a winning strategy for the republicans.

There is nothing to be gained here with this vendetta.

So, ya.

That's what this is all about.

Can you say petty?

With a whimper..not a bang..

Well, it finally happened.

Robert Mueller finished his report.


and we don't know anything more than we did before!

So now what?

Well, probably lots of legal wrangling that could go on for a very long time.

During which time we will all sit and pontificate what will happen next and who it will happen to.

While at the same time we will watch in terrifying amazement at the ongoing stream of lunacy that comes from this administration.

We will continue to wait for someone to do something to stop the daily degradation of the United States.

The report was supposed to be cathartic. It was supposed to release us from this maddening mess we are in.

Well, that's what we all wished would happen. But lets be realistic...
that was never going to happen. It was a nice thought , but it was never going to happen.

So now we are left to sit and wait and wonder.

Or we could try something really radical.

Let's face it, he's going to get away with it all.

There is noting we can do but wait him out.

But in the mean time what if....

Donald Trump is always referring to his voters, not the country.

Not society as a whole but his voters.

Which leaves the other half of the country.

So, if he isn't even going to pretend to be president to all, why don't we pick our own president!?

He/she could just move into the other wing of the White House and then we would all be represented.

Donald Trump lost the popular vote by almost three million so more people didn't vote for him than did.

Which puts them in the majority.

So, come on let's find our own president!

Someone who's not pimping out the office of the president to make a quick buck.

Someone who's not denigrating the memory and character of a dead war hero.

Someone who's not locking up children in cages.

Someone who can read.

Someone who's not selling military secrets to our adversary's.

Let's face it, "we need a hero" and we need to put them in the White house right next to Trump.
That seems fair to me.

Have a great weekend!

When you lie down with dogs...

                                (baby Noodle archives)

There is an old adage that if you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas...

We couldn't help noticing while watching the testimony of Michael Cohen, that the only thing the Republican members of the committee could agree on, was that Mr. Cohen was a liar.

They took this stance over and over while apparently forgetting that the current commander in chief is the biggest most prolific liar we have ever seen.

Why are the republicans so outraged that Mr. Cohen lied but not outraged that THE PRESIDENT lies multiple times a day?

The question was asked of Mr Cohen, " If you thought he (Mr.Trump) was so bad why did you work for him for 10 years??

The real question should have been directed at Mr. Trump.

"If Mr. Cohen was so bad and is such a lair, why did you work with him for so long"?

After all Mr. Trump professes to be such a great business man who only hires the best people...

And sure Mr. Cohen lied a lot but trying to say it was for his personal gain alone would only be plausible if it were the Cohen Tower and the Cohen Moscow deal.

And as for all this nonsense as to do you have a book deal? are you going to make money?

Donald Trump is the one selling the presidential seal on his company's golf t's!

Donald Trump ran for president to make his company great and profitable, not to make America great.

He said that his campaign would be the greatest INFOMERCIAL ever seen.

Think about that....

Then there are those pesky security clearances.

All those security clearance's for all those people who it was determined really, really shouldn't have them!

The FBI and the CIA where worried that Ivanka and Jared, due to what ever was in their applications for clearance, could be open to persuasion and bribery by individuals and foreign governments.



Don't you think it's more likely that Ivanka, Jared and all the others aren't just grabbing every bit of classified information they can get there hands on to blackmail and bribe others for themselves?!

I mean think about who we are talking about...

Do you really think that with all that secret Intel they have been made privy to that they wouldn't find a way to use it to make a quick buck or two and manipulate say a company or a government to their advantage in or out of office?

Unfortunately we are in a stupefyingly sad time where many people view all this as entertainment and don't get that there is a catastrophe looming just over the horizon.

While the rest of us are terrified and are digging out our emergency gear and huddled in the corner awaiting the inevitable...

On that note, have a wonderful weekend!

Spy cats...

For those of you who didn't see this post 5 years ago, we thought we'd re post it as it's a really weird story...

                                     Spy Cats

During the cold war, the CIA attempted to transform an ordinary domesticated house cat into a sophisticated bugging device as part of Operation Acoustic Kitty. The idea was to surgically alter
cats so they could eavesdrop on Soviet conversations from park benches and window sills.
The project began in 1961when the CIA implanted a battery and a microphone into a cat and turned its tail into an antenna. However, the cat wandered off when it was hungry a problem that had to be addressed in another operation. Finally after 5 years, several surgeries, intensive training and 15 million dollars, the cat was ready for its first field test.
The CIA drove the cat to a Soviet compound on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington DC and let it out of a parked van across the street. The cat walked into the road and was immediately hit by a taxi.
Operation Acoustic Kitty was declared a failure and completely abandon in 1967.
OK, we have no idea if there is any truth to this tail... but we got it from a reliable source... the Internet!

Then there is this;

In 1968 the Army began experimenting with the use of "night eyes" or "seeing eye cats". The Army had for a long time been quietly impressed with the night vision of cats. The mission of the project was to employ this special ability; harnessed cats were to lead foot-soldiers through the thick jungle during the dead of night.
Certain people in high command had such enthusiasm for the idea that an order was given that "night eyes" be field tested, so the operation was put into use in Viet Nam on an experimental basis.
After a month of night maneuvering with the seeing-eye cats, a report was filed with the section on Unconventional Warfare which in part stated; "...A squad, upon being ordered to move out, was lead off in all different directions by the cats.
"...On many occasions the animals lead the troops racing through thick brush in pursuit of field mice and birds.
"...Troops had to force the cats to follow the direction of the patrol; the practice often led to the animals stalking and attacking the dangling pack straps of the American soldiers marching directly in front of them.
"...If the weather was inclement or even threatening inclemency, the cats were never anywhere to be found.
"...Often when the troops were forced to take cover, the animals took this opportunity to sharpen their claws on the boots of the troops, regardless of the seriousness of the situation.
"...A number of the troops traded their animals to Vietnamese women for their favors. When questioned about this, the troops claimed the animals ran away.
   The project was suspended.
