These deficits are making me thirsty.

Happy May Day.

In other news, Rubio is still a hypocrite and a worm.

Wow! The possibility of The Great Man getting the Nobel is increasing! Instead of using those hammers and chisels to Snowflakishly erase legitimate American history, they’ll be used positively to carve TGM’s face onto Mt. Rushmore!! MA (Unbelievably) GA!

Yeah, he’s had “everything” to do with Korean negotiations, way more than the South Korea’s Moon. And when there’s not fully verifiable completely irreversible denuclearization, the standard by which the Iran deal was declared the “worst ever”, it will be someone other than Trump’s fault.

The only areas on Mt Rushmore to fit another president is on unstable rock filled with cracks and divisions, surrounded by rubble. The area at top to set up rigging has become precarious. In fact the rock is so volatile that any type of explosive event to manipulate the ragged and weathered face to resemble the façade of a moral soul would endanger the foundation of the existing yet unfinished democratic pillars of the republic.

There is nothing more appropriate than “unstable rock filled with cracks and divisions, surrounded by rubble” to memorialize Trump.

Looking forward to a red-meat stem-winder from The Great Man Friday at the NRA!

No guns allowed at the NRA meeting?

Not NRA call. Secret Service rules.

But I thought guns made us all safer? If the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, think of how many “maggots” would be deterred by a room full of freedom-loving, gun-toting, American heee-ros.

I don’t get child tax credits. Why should people who have children get a benefit that other adults don’t get?
Kind of irritating.

Also, since it looks like the hands-free cell phone bill will pass I went ahead and got myself one of those phone holders that clips to the vent on the dash. I now find myself trying to use the phone more often than I used to because it’s so easy to do now. Need. More. Discipline.

Where did you get that gizmo?

Wal Mart. My favorite shopping experience. Not.

At my closest Wal Mart, during football season, there is a group of Chrysler-product-driving Falcons fans that meet in the parking lot on Sunday morning. Weird.

Tax credits are easier to do than build and maintain than a society that provides opportunity and living wage work.

Meanwhile, Johnny Isaakson continues to do a bang up job on the Veterans Affairs Committee.

Note Isakson hasn’t said one word against Jon Tester. This is advanced-level politics… let Tester do the dirty work in scuttling the Jackson nomination, provide zero warning to the Trump Administration about the same, stall confirmation hearings until Jackson withdraws himself from consideration.

Republicans said their enormous tax cuts for the rich and big business can’t sunset in ten years, because how could a business ever plan? And the instability!

But tariffs on neighbors and allies, they’re on again or off again depending on what the orange idiot sees on Fox and Friends, or whether he’s having a bad hair day.

A stable business environment is important, except when it isn’t.
