Out Of The Ice Box

Into the Aaaaaahhhhhhhh.

Ice box:  that was Kingston last week after a “dusting”. It was below freezing for most of my stay. I saw the blizzard coming and my brother had to go back to work so I switched my flight to yesterday. It was a long day, but it was worth it.

 Aaaahhhhhh. That’s what I’m talking ’bout!

There’s a spring behind the laundry building on the right side that sorta ‘leaks from right to left down a wash behind and below that wall. There’s a lot of life around here, it’s like a bird, rabbit and squirrel sanctuary. Except for the hawks, owls and coyotes I guess.

I’m still a little burned out from my travails yesterday, it was a long day, so just a short round.

 

A little revisionist current events.

Or, some would say, Trump is hurting himself. Either way, there are troubling indications that President Trump is losing his battle with the Democratic Party press.

If it were just Minitrue, he would have a chance. Hell, if it were just the Democratic political/entertainment complex, he would be winning.

But he’s also fighting the GOP,

like McCain going after him for the bullshit Russia Hacked The Election hackassery.

Arizona Sen. John McCain said “there’s a lot of shoes to drop” regarding more information about President Trump and his team’s ties to Russia.

McCain said several aspects related to Trump’s connections with Russia needed more questioning during an interview on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday.

Little Lord Graham 

President Donald Trump’s proposed budget is set to hit a brick wall in Congress, where some Republican lawmakers say the proposed cuts to foreign aid are out of the question.
“It’s dead on arrival – It’s not going to happen,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., according to NBC News. “It would be a disaster.”

Paul fucking Ryan

House Speaker Paul Ryan told his Republican colleagues in October that he was cutting ties with Donald Trump, saying he would defend the presidential candidate “not now, not in the future,” according to an audiotape of the call released on Monday by Breitbart.

That was from October, but have we seen anything from Ryan that shows he’s not still of that opinion?

Mitch The Bitch McConnell

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday played down expectations that any tax package can be completed before the August recess, despite Trump administration vows to pursue “historic” legislation soon.

“I think finishing on tax reform will take longer,” the Kentucky Republican said in a Politico Playbook interview. “We do have to finish the health care debate … before we go to taxes.”

Which “health care debate” is all about… you guessed it! 

Indeed, the whole GOP establishment is fighting Trump.

The RNC is having a hard time finding Republicans who haven’t roasted Trump.

On Wednesday, the RNC’s Hispanic outreach director, Ruth Guerra, resigned from her post. Two aides told The New York Times that she felt “uncomfortable” working with Donald Trump, who has routinely made racist remarks about Hispanics during his presidential run. The RNC announced that Guerra would be replaced by Helen Aguirre Ferré, who furiously deleted scores of tweets attacking Trump.

 

“roasted Trump”, as you can see, means, “roast Trump daily”. You know, if you want to be technical. And accurate.

For the record, I typed each of the names with links above before looking for the links, I knew what I would find.

He’s fighting everybody who’s pissed off at We Teh Peepul for deciding to pay attention to the screwing we’re getting from our betters.

 

They’re relentless. Most of the media is still talking about Flynn for fuck’s sake. And that includes most of Foxnews. I can’t even watch Shep anymore, I just want to smack the ignorant yet oh-so-superior smirk off his face.

 

Related: CBO declares WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE IF THEY CHANGE A JOT OR TITTLE OF OBAMACARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Congressional Budget Office said Monday that the White House-backed plan to repeal and replace Obamacare would result in an estimated 24 million more uninsured people by 2026.

 

When I first saw that I thought how funny it is that not forcing people to buy something means fewer people will buy it, then I saw some congresscritter make the same point and Minitrue was On The Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  with help from some helpful Republicans.

“If half of the CBO [report] is true, I think we should slow down,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Monday.

Asked for reaction to the score, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who is physician, said, “It’s awful.”

“President Trump says he wants as many people covered as under ­ObamaCare,” he added.

With this howler from that minitrue outlet in good standing, the Hill.

The findings from the nonpartisan CBO

Yeah. Non-partisan. We’ll go with that. It sounds so much better than ‘establishment pricks who hate the concept of America’.

Which howler is followed by another.

The findings from the nonpartisan CBO are significant because both parties have long pointed to the office’s findings when pushing legislation.

 

And that my friends is all they’re good for. Cuz they certainly aren’t any good at actually predicting shit.

 

Also related. A puppy blender post.

INDEED: “The implicit standard in analysis of the health insurance system is that every consumer must have government-selected coverage. But why?”

 

That’s because our fine betters are all saying that’s the standard and the media is happy to push it that way. They’ve moved the debate from “Should the gov’t be involved health care?” to “Of course the gov’t needs to be involved in healthcare, let’s argue about how much freedom we’re going to pretend to give our serfs.”

We no longer have just the Democratic political/entertainment complex pushing that shit, the GOP and much of Foxnews is doing it as well. Which makes it much harder for the idea that the gov’t should not be in charge of every aspect of our lives to be discussed.

It surely can’t be discussed in polite company.

They’re relentless. Much of America is getting sick of it. Which is exactly what our fine betters are hoping.

It reminds me of a young Tard dog learning a valuable lesson when he caught the cat he had chased a few times.

Chasing something is far different from actually catching it.

They’re chasing our complete subjugation and I don’t think they’ll like it if they get much farther along that particular spectrum.

    Is that a palo verde tree? Brings back memories of my year-and-a-half in Arizona (still at the top of my list of places to retire).

    As to the rest: yeah, I hate the Vichy Republicans. McCain and Graham are fighting like maniacs to preserve the illusion of their relevance – or maybe it’s not an illusion; I suppose if they successfully play the spoilers, in a way they are still relevant. Which is too damned bad.

      I’ve been told it’s a palo verde tree so you’re probably right.
      McCain hates too much.
      I could tolerate that but he hates all the wrong people.

    Trump Induced Anxiety Disorder… a lot like Bush Derangement Syndrome, but… a cure has been found … Impeachara …

    Glad you got back safely. We got over two feet here but were spared the power outages, thankfully.
    I have six dogs (four 5 month old puppies & their parents) and seven cats so I can tell you what happens when the crazy cat allows itself to get caught by the dumb dog chasing it – the cat beats the crap out of the dog every time! And the dog will cry and refrain from chasing that cat again for at least an hour. The smartest dog cannot outwit the dumbest cat.

  4. veeshir says:

    Yeah, he got a lot less enthusiastic about chasing cats after he “caught” the first one. After that, if they stopped running he would stop chasing and start sniffing the ground like, “Oh, I was just running to here not chasing you!”

    Trump Induced Anxiety Disorder…hmmmmm…. we need a better name with a good acronym.

    I’m trying to figure out how to make it The Vapors but all I got so far is Trump Heralded Excitement Vivisects All Persons Of Respectable Structure
