Charming that we went into a total breakdown demanding an overnight removal of statues that have been attracting pigeons for a 100 years.
No excitement that the AJC reports the DOE needs $500 million more next year, 60% to shore up pensions so their folks can retire by their early ’50’s. The super paid overseers missed return forecasts.

Fortunately my state senator believes we don’t have a spending problem either, we have a casino problem.

The current battle over Confederate monuments has a few things in common with the fight to change the Georgia State flag. In both cases, some questionable historic revisionism was used to support the cause.

End DACA program?
Checking immigration status of Texas evacuees?
Cut funding to teen pregnancy programs?
Exempt Citgo from sanctions?
Banning transgender service members?
Pardon Arpaio?

How can anyone justify any of that?
A dark day.

Hey! Where are you, Noway? You are needed back here — we’re expecting any day for the alt-left rioters to blame Hurricane Harvey on the President, like they do everything they don’t like!

For laughs looked at CNN early this AM. White House using Harvey to hide three headlines.
Trump had a great week.
Transgender just might be a problem in military:

Pardoning Arpaio, yawn, Clinton pardoning Marc Rich, WTF
Following the law? DACA, illegals
Can’t we address many social issues better locally/by the states?

Re: Trump’s “transgender ban.”

I don’t think that anyone who dodged service in our military should be turning away folks that want to serve this country based on their physical . Transgender Americans are statistically more likely to join the US military and already demonstrate a bravery beyond anything Trump has ever mustered.

In addition to being braver than Trump, I’m pretty sure any former or present transgender troop could whoop Trump’s fat, sad, misshapen self worse than Mayweather whooped MacGregor last night.

I can’t recall ever agreeing with Justin Amash before: “Arpaio was convicted of defying court order to stop violating #4thAmendment. It’s a pardon of a govt official who ignored Bill of Rights.”

Let’s also not ignore the cravenness of using a Category 4 hurricane as cover for the pardoning. For someone that complained about the “swamp” of Washington, Trump is pulling moves that even the slimiest of snakes would never consider. Seriously, he saw a hurricane coming and said “now is the perfect time to pardon my super racist political supporter out in Arizona, ban transgender troops from the military, and fire the guy in my administration who was a literal Nazi.”

You know the Visigoths sacked Rome and basically ended the Roman Empire, then took over the remainder of the Gaul Empire right? If you’re planning on defeating the Visigoth that would cast you in the roll of the Moors. You changing your name to Othello or something?

Plus I’m more of a Morrighan or a Baduhenna type.

Why would they blame Harvey on Trump? Pat Robertson has already clearly established that every natural disaster is gay people’s fault.
