TRUMP NEVER PLAYS BY THE RULES, SO WHY SHOULD WE?
In his own brain, Trump believes that he can use any means necessary to get what he wants. We all listened to his rants at his rallies, his disrespectful interruptions during the debates, his incoherent sentences which were, many times, over a hundred words long, and after changed direction and topic somewhere in mid-sentence. Trump is also under the impression that as president, he can do whatever he wants without being held accountable for his actions. He believes that sexual assault is okay since he's continued to get away with it because he's (in)famous. It's okay, in his head, to tell leaders from enemies of the nation to "call me" if you come visit the U.S. Quite simply, Trump is clueless. His supporters say "he's learning, give him time". The trouble with that response is, if your puppy is peeing on the floor, he's learning. If your president is peeing on your country, who's going to correct the behaviors'? And will our enemies give him time to learn?
CNN anchor wants Americans to wear hijabs to support Muslims...CNN is the worst!!!
CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota suggested on Monday that Americans should sport hijabs to show solidarity with Muslim women who fear being attacked for wearing religious head coverings. This proclamation came hours right before the Ohio State University attack, which was committed by an Islamic radical student.
“Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if you’re not Muslim,” Camerota said during CNN’s early-morning “New Day” broadcast. “Maybe it’s the way people shave their heads, you know, sometimes in solidarity with somebody who is going through something.”
The CNN segment focused on Muslim women who claim they live in fear of being verbally or physically attacked for wearing head scarves under the new President-Elect, Donald Trump. “I hope I can wear it one day again. I hope I can feel safe enough to do so,” Marwa Abdelghani, a Muslim-American woman, told the network.
The segment was cordially titled “The Trump Transition: Fearful Muslim women take steps to be safe.”
Camerota’s co-host on the segment, Chris Cuomo, suggested an alternative for Muslim women who fear being attacked. “I think self-defense training is good for everybody,” he said. “Prepare yourself for whatever can come.”
What about the rest of the Carrier employees?
I'm not happy with Trumps deal. What do the Carrier employees that don't get picked up do? I love the fact that 1100 get to keep their job, but what about the rest MR TRUMP? 300 people are out the door, with nothing but the memory of friends they have know for year keeping their jobs. What kind of Christmas will they have and compared of what they made to what they will get on unemployment is sad. I believe that TRUMP should do everything to get them jobs close to what they had. HUBBY tells me that this is just the way things happen. Be thankful 1100 got to keep their jobs. Am I wrong for asking this question?
If using my wood burning stove causes global warming
1. Then why am I burning wood in it?
Because it's COLD!
2. One lightening strike can (and has) cause a wildfire that will put out more smoke than I could in many lifetimes of burning wood in my stove.
That's what nature does.
3. One building fire caused by an electrical problem puts out many times the toxins into the atmosphere than my woodstove ever could think about. With the electricity coming from an evil fossil fuel, or nuclear power plant.
4. Does burning wood in my stove deprive the electricity cartel of some revenue? It does!
I like my woodstove, and will burn wood in it until the planet warms back up!
I had a link that I received earlier about some greenie whining about wood burning stoves. I guess I fat-fingered something, and lost it!
Trump and the Carrier Deal
Cost to taxpayers $7 million
Jobs saved that were not leaving anyway 800
Carrier still moving 1300 jobs to Mexico
Long term deal now encourages large companies to begin to shake down state, local and Federal government when ever they want money. Republicans calling this a great deal and Trump has been elevated to move over Ronald Reagan Trump is headed for Rushmore.
Every Savvy CEO will now threaten to ship jobs to Mexico and demand a payment to stay. But Republicans love this agenda. Another hidden subsidy for the corporate elite.
Obama successful auto rescue that republican wanted to let the Auto industry go bankrupt due to the Bush recession saved well over a million Jobs by giving them a low interest loan with stock options that got paid back with interest ended up making money for the federal government. But the same people applauding the orange haired freak attacked Obama.
But the right wing freaks on OPP would never give Obama credit.
So I guess we are entering into the Trump presidency of PR stunts to pacify the right wing freaks on OPP. Nobody can see this guy scammed the American tax payers by spending $7 million and saved 800 jobs that were not going anywhere.
He did the same BS with the ford plant and you freaks love this guy. If Ford only knew he could have held out for $50 million. That says carrier is a lot smarter than Ford. Carrier knows this orange haired freak is a dumb SOB.
Great job Govenor Pence you're tax payers are footing the bill for a pathologist cal lier.
Carrier Played Trump For the Fool He IS!
Great news: You can now pee on the sidewalks in San Francisco
Since we’re talking about California in general and San Francisco in particular it’s probably difficult to surprise us anymore when some crazytown news crops up, but this item from the San Francisco Gate should still raise a few eyebrows. A Superior Court judge out there found himself explaining why he had tossed out more than 66,000 arrest warrants last year and essentially stopped issuing new ones for what are frequently described as “quality of life crimes.”
San Francisco’s chief judge says he and his colleagues discarded 66,000 arrest warrants issued over five years for quality-of-life crimes, like sleeping on the sidewalk, because it made no sense to lock people up for fines they couldn’t afford.
The crimes, which also include urinating on sidewalks and being drunk in public, are infractions punishable only by fines. But when those who were cited failed to show up in court, judges in the past have issued bench warrants ordering them to appear, with a sentence of five days in jail for failing to show up.
But San Francisco Superior Court judges stopped issuing the warrants a year ago and recently disposed of about 66,000 bench warrants issued since January 2011. The city’s police union and some members of the public have protested, but Presiding Judge John Stewart defended the court’s action Tuesday in a meeting with The Chronicle’s editorial board.
These are primarily crimes involving vagrancy, public intoxication and other low level crimes which nonetheless tend to detract from the quality of life in the community. And that’s why the generic description is so ironic here. The actual “quality of life” issue under discussion isn’t that of the defendants who were found to be urinating in front of the diner or sleeping on a park bench.
Senate Republicans And Can Save the Country From Trump!
Start with the math, Republicans will hold 52 Senate seats! Of those 52 Republicans, 12- Susan Collins, John McCain, Lyndsey Graham, Ben Sasse, Mike Lee, Rob Portman, Pat Toomey, Jeff Flake, Dean Heller, Lisa Murkowski, Cory Gardner and Dan Sullivan_ either refused to endorse Trump or rescinded their endorsement! There are more who feel he is not fit for the office and only backed Trump out of loyalty to the party! To believe Trump will be capable of coping with the rejection from both the Republicans and Democrats is asinine!http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/11/28/13758376/senate-republicans-trump
Trump has proven time and time again that he has a very short fuse, and it will be sooner than later, when he blows his top!
Trump thinks 3 Million illegals voted. Proof anyone?
According to Trump there were three million illegal aliens who voted during the election. So where is the proof and just who did they vote for. After all, if it was organized by the DNC Hillary would have won...
Now this isn't the only time Trump has made allegations without any proof but my question is why do conservative believe him without doing any kind of fact check?
