Heartfelt Endorsement

Off the Rails1

Trump went to a rally in Pennsylvania for a Republican named Rick Saccone, the Republican running for the Republican seat in their special election for the House. Trump spoke for 80 minutes, 2 of which were for the reason he came for: Endorsing Saccone.  The rest of the time…well it was pretty whacky.  I mean, when it comes to an off the cuff Trump speech, it usually is, but come on!  Calling Chuck Todd a “sleepy son of a bitch”?  That’s crazy.


Nailing Down the Budget

Budget Distractions1

So another government shutdown is looming around the corner.  With political factions more divided than they’ve ever been, I don’t think it’s surprising to anyone. But this crazy inability to find any level of common ground has become ridiculous and petty.  Throwing another wrench in the works is Donald Trump constantly distracting everyone, helping to keep people from making any kind of headway. Trump just can’t seem to let things not be about him for even a few days.

Benefits of the new Tax Bill

The justification for this scam of a tax bill is that the permanent corporate tax cuts will incentivize corporations to make new big investments spurring salary increases and new jobs.  And I keep reading articles that have company heads and CEOs claiming that this will in no way make them interested in doing that.  They’ll mostly use the breaks to do what they’ve always done: boost shareholder profits.  So I find it awfully bold for people like Paul Ryan to insist that corporations will absolutely do something that they have no financially good reason to do.

Reports have indicated that Steve Bannon has been in constant contact with a Mr. Kid Rock regarding his congressional bid.  Oh to be a fly on that wall…

When the President Doesn’t Do His Homework

So, at the beginning of October, Donald Trump was supposed to put in place the initial sanctions against Russia that he agreed upon in August.  That deadline has passed and….no one seems to be talking about it?  It’s buried beneath NFL protests and all around tom foolery.  I imagine this is how Congress confronted him two weeks ago…
