I stand corrected and condemned: Trump is mentally ill and needs to resign
It was a simple thing in a long list of simple things I had ignored before that finally changed my view. “I own actually one of the largest wineries in the United States," Trump said after a press conference at Trump Tower in New York. “It is in Charlottesville." Before I would have just shaken my head and said to myself, "That's just Trump." Usually there would be a small laugh. Loved he was so unpredictable and thought of his many misdirections, misrepresentations, and outright lies as just a clever game he was playing with the media. Keep them on their toes and scratching their heads, looking like idiots. But such a comment just days after the trouble in Charlottesville seemed really wrong.
Hyperbole is Trump's native tongue. I could take that. Again, I saw it as just a style he had to throw people off, gain an edge, stay in control: all needed to be a successful salesperson. It wasn't delusional, it was purposeful. Or so I thought then. The lie about his winery, which was outright on a number of points, was shortly followed by one of the most appalling things I ever read: Trump's tweet about General Pershing. It was megalomaniac stuff, serial killer wet-dream-ugliness. "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught," wrote Trump, less than four hours after the attack. "There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!"
Then Trump tells the story: "They had a terrorism problem and there's a whole thing with swine and pigs and you know the story they don't like them ... and Gen. Pershing was a rough guy and he sits on his horse and he's very astute, like a ramrod. ... And he caught 50 terrorists that did tremendous damage and killed many people ... and he dipped 50 bullets in pig's blood," Trump explained. "And he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people," he continued. "And the 50th person he said, 'You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.' And for 25 years there wasn't a problem, OK? Twenty-five years there wasn't a problem!" (He added another ten years to his story.)
Trump is clearly demented.
Scrub filth from Stone Mountain
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called for the removal of the giant carving that depicts three Confederate war leaders on the face of state-owned Stone Mountain, saying it “remains a blight on our state and should be removed.”
“We must never celebrate those who defended slavery and tried to destroy the union,” Abrams said in a series of tweets posted early Tuesday, a response to the deadly violence sparked by white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Va.
Have You Folks Finally Woken Up Now That Trump Has Aligned Himself with Neo-Nazis?
The country needed a unifying statement against these hideous terrorists who murdered an American in cold blood. Should have been a slam dunk. But Trump made a moral equivalence between neo-Nazis and people that oppose neo-Nazis. We ALL should oppose Neo-Nazis!!!! I'm sure you all now realize Trump has to go. Pence would never say what Trump said. Wouldn't you rather have Pence?

Statues, Mount Rushmore and Taking them down - Question of the Day !
And the HITS just keep coming...
Question of the Day
Posted by Keith Broaders on August 13, 2017
Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned a large number of slaves and if we take down the statue of Robert E. Lee should we also also remove the faces of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from Mount Rushmore?
Many Americans are offended by the Confederate flag because they associate the Confederate flag with slavery while at the same time they revere the flag of the United States which represented a country that promoted slavery for over 200 years.
Did you know that Robert E. Lee voluntarily freed his slaves years before Ulysses S. Grant was compelled to free his slaves?
U.S. Grant had several slaves who were only freed after the 13th amendment in December of 1865. When asked why he did not free his slave earlier, Grant stated the "Good help is so hard to come by these days."
GOP Reaction to Trump on Charlottesville
REPUBLICANS roundly criticized Trump.
-- SPEAKER PAUL RYAN (@SpeakerRyan): "We must be clear. White supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity." ... SEN. MARCO RUBIO (R-FLA.) (@marcorubio): "Mr. President, you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame.They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain 5/6" ... "The #WhiteSupremacy groups will see being assigned only 50% of blame as a win. We can not allow this old evil to be resurrected 6/6" ... MITT ROMNEY (@MittRomney): "No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes." ...
... NRCC CHAIRMAN STEVE STIVERS (@RepSteveStivers): "I don't understand what's so hard about this. White supremacists and Neo-Nazis are evil and shouldn't be defended." ... KEVIN MCCARTHY (@GOPLeader) : "Saturday's violence and tragic loss of life was a direct consequence of the hateful rhetoric & action from white supremacists demonstrating." ... JUSTIN AMASH (@justinamash): "'Very fine people' do not participate in rallies with groups chanting racist and anti-Semitic slogans and displaying vile symbols of hate."
Missouri Democratic state senator says she hopes Trump is assassinated
A Democratic state senator in Missouri is facing resignation calls for posting on Facebook Thursday that she hopes President Trump is assassinated.
“I hope Trump is assassinated!” state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal wrote.
Chappelle-Nadal eventually deleted the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter.
In interviews with local outlets, Chapelle-Nadal said she regretted her post but not her anger at the president. She blamed her outburst on the president's response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville.
“I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that," Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. "But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I'm not going to shy away from that."
The Secret Service told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch it is investigating Chapelle-Nadal’s post.
Meanwhile, top Missouri Democrats – including Sen. Claire McCaskill and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party – are calling on Chapelle-Nadal to resign.
“I condemn it," McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch. "It's outrageous. And she should resign.”
Missouri Party Chair Stephen Webber called Chappelle-Nadal’s comments "indefensible.”
“I believe she should resign,” Webber said.
But Chappelle-Nadal told KMOX Radio she won’t quit.
“There is no way in hell that I’m resigning,” she said.
What can I say but "A nigs got to Nig. If this had been a white person, SS for SURE would destroy this persons career. But being a Negro, nothing will happen. You see, they gerrymander districts so these braindead, racist, good for nothing but target practice Negros can get elected and show just how stupid their people are. She should be thrown in jail. And IF (and I highly doubt it) there is any sense of decency in her "negro" district, they will kick her Black ass out to the curb.
I hope some klansmen meet her in a dark alley.
It keeps nagging at me as to why all of this wasn't an issue until very recently. Those statues have been there for generations. Now they're an offensive issue? WTF?
It's pretty obvious to me what's going on. Is it to you?
Kinda brings a tear to your eye.
Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My 8-year-old grandson asked
if he could say grace.
As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food
and I would thank you even more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert.
And liberty, peace & justice for all. Amen!
Along with the laughter and nodding of heads from the other customers
nearby, I heard a woman at the next table remark, "That's what's wrong with this
country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why -- I
Hearing this, my grandson burst into tears & asked me, "Did I do it wrong
Grandpa? Is God mad at me?
After I assured him that he had done a terrific job & that God was certainly
not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.
He winked at my grandson & said, "I happen to know that God thought that was
a great prayer.
"Really?" my grandson asked.
"Cross my heart," the man replied. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added
(indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad
she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is sometimes good for
Naturally, I bought my grandchildren ice cream at the end of the meal. My
grandson stared at his ice cream for a moment, & then he did something I
will remember the rest of my life. He picked up his sundae and, without a word,
walked over & placed it in front of the woman.
With a big smile he looked her in the eye and told her, "Here ma'am, this is for you,
you grouchy old bitch. Shove it up your ass and cool off!"
Kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it!
Which Picture describes our commander in chief
I need right and left wingers to vote on Which picture best discribes Trump. Since his classified briefings now have to be done with Flash cards, pictures, and short videos. This helps our Intel community to get this guy up to speed. They realized that Trump was watching Fox and Friends and he was using them to get his intelligence.
So they determined why not give it a try so they did and Trump is like a 2nd grader he loves it. He wants Fox and Friends to do the video.
The manufacturer of depends is trying to get Trump to do a commercial for them to make people more aware. Donald has been having this Poop ð© problem for 4 years he just can't control himself. But he doesn't understand that when you're 68 pounds overweight and you're diet is Big Macs and a large fry you will need to wear depends. They tried to get him on a diet but he wasn't sure what that was so he busted assumed and started drinking Diet Coke.
(SO PLEASE VOTE ON WHICH PICTURE BEST DISCRIBES TRUMP)
My vote comes down to the Shart of the Deal because he is a disgusting fat white rich racist and he does cheat at golf and life.
He was so excited when the man let him in his truck
He was excited about the big truck the secret service got him a small truck to play with in the Oval Office. They told him not to drive it outside. He is having so much fun being in the White House 4 days a week
This is how the secret service marks the golf course so the maintenance crew can clean up after Trump plays golf. Notice no Toilet Paper Trump never uses itt.
Donald needed a little help finding his golf ball. So his Buddy helped him
Unfortunately for Donald the secret service could not get Donald to the woods on time so a diaper change was necessary. According to secret service reports they carry a change of cloths for Donald all the time. They asked him to wear depends.
Donald playing in the grass with his best friend they really love each other.
Now after Trump and Putin got done playing horsey. In the grass they settle in for a little bromance. And Donald complains about Monica.
It has been reported that he does cheat at golf this is just one story. But there are many
