announcing …


IT WAS ALL GRANDSTANDING!! … “Trump used it to announce that he’d signed “four bills” (they weren’t bills) that he said would “save American jobs and provide relief to the American worker” (they don’t).
The only real thing Comrade Trump did was to issue an executive order extending the suspension of monthly payments for federally-held student loans. It’s only for three months, but it’s something. And it’s a good thing (and you people say I never give Trump credit for the good things he’s done).”

Comrade Trump loves to announce things. Announcing stuff is fun. You get to stand in front of a lot of people who want to hear the announcement, you make your announcement, then you can go do something else. Eat some chicken, play golf, make some phone calls. After a while you get to watch television and see how they report your announcement. Great fun.

The best thing about announcing stuff? It gets reported as if whatever it was you announced you were going to do is basically already done. You get credit for the thing just by making the announcement.

Here’s an example. Yesterday Comrade Trump held a…okay, I don’t even know what to call it. He called it a ‘press conference’ because the news media were there, but it was held at one of Trump’s golf clubs and attended by members of his club (who repeated booed the reporters)…

Brief letter to Senators and Congress people (sent Saturday morning)


PLEASE!! … “I beseech you to get back to work and do your job. It needs to be done in the right way and not left to a perception-focused and autocratic bent president. We cannot give any president more power than they have, but especially this one.”

musingsofanoldfart

I posted the following on the my two Senators (and select others) and Congressman’s websites.

I am disappointed that Congress has failed to reach a decision to help people. As with any communication problem, it is the fault of at least two parties, so the president’s attempt to blame only the Democrats is just more posturing than fact. Please find a way to make a deal. Americans are hurting and the president does not have the authority to do what is needed.

I am big believer we must deal with the debt, but the hypocrisy of the Freedom Caucus and others astounds me. They had no trouble in voting for a $1.5 trillion tax bill when it helped the wealthy and businesses at a time when we should have been reducing debt with a pretty good economy. So, we wasted that debt cost to make a pretty good economy a…

Fall Well


Moments of Joy amid the ‘disturbances’ … “Really, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. And when I say “nicer guy,” I really mean hypocritical, racist, condescending douchebag.”

Let me say this about Jerry Falwell Jr: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Really, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. And when I say “nicer guy,” I really mean hypocritical, racist, condescending douchebag.

Jerry Falwell Jr released a photo of himself with his arm around a woman who is not his wife, with his pants unzipped, and holding a glass of black liquid. It was taken on a yacht. A lot of people, even Republicans, and other assorted asshole conservatives said this was the last straw. What were the other straws?

As president of Liberty University, he’s been accused of running the school like a dictatorship. He’s been accused of nepotism in favoring family-owned businesses in the school’s investments. He’s allowed his wife, the woman not in the unzipped-pants photo, to run school affairs. He’s shared racy photos of his wife to school employees. He’s had crude discussions of his sex life…

Walking. One Short. From Wing to Wing.


Nature is amazing and so soothing!! … “I leave her behind. I accelerate my pace, needing to find another wing, another blossom. And before long, an Egret. A heron. A flock of Canada Geese. A duck with her ducklings. The morning sun shimmering her magic hues on high tide. These are the days … “

Live & Learn

He has to be in his late 70’s, maybe early 80’s, but he’s out each morning walking, in twilight. There’s a handful of us obsessives out at this hour, including me, that strange guy, always in black head to toe, The Camera Guy (as Jim calls me, grateful he’s left ‘Creepy’ out of the prefix).

He has a severe limp when he walks, his right side slumps with each step. Retired Vet, would be my bet. Large, hulking man, must have been fierce in his day. (vs. me still pretending to be fierce, a younger old dog with false teeth, literally and figuratively. At least they don’t clack, yet. Something to look forward to).

We’re on Month 4 here with the morning walks, and despite the crossing of our paths each morning, he would not lift his head to acknowledge me. Perhaps stuck in his head. Perhaps wanting to…

Operation Warp Speed …. “🚀 What the Hell Just Happened? …. ‘Fake Hero, Fake Orders – Grandstanding’ 🚀 …. “!!


~~August 9, 2020~~

SUDDENLY HE BECOMES A HERO?

Yesterday afternoon and evening watch postings on my Twitter feed related to executive order this FIDIOT was signing while he had ‘rallies’ at his golf club in New Jersey. The more I read, the more uneasy I became. This ‘man’ is messing with everything that is ‘sacred’ and customary in this nation.

We have been warned that he’s a cornered ‘rat’ and that he will come out with everything including the kitchen sink to be re-elected. And of course, the pilot fishes, complicit member of the GOP Senate go along because they see their ‘prize’ within distance.

There’s no honor, there’s no integrity, there’s no respect! They don’t care.

The FIDIOT is holding the nation’s citizens hostage as they face COVID-19, sickness, death, unemployment, evictions, desperation, homelessness … gotta say, no surprise here!

Just disheartening utter disbelief that this is where the nation is!

Not even the majority … this is a complicit group of white, old men, dinosaurs, if you will, taking advantage of an awful situation aggravated further by their actions.

And some dare call HIM, a HERO!!

Arrggghh!!

Sunday Sweet Sermon …. “🤔 ‘Most Powerful Thing: Say Nothing’ 🤔 …. “!!


~~August 9, 2020~~

MOST POWERFUL THING

We have to be careful who we chose to be in our lives. We have to be picky and selective. At times, true colors are seen.

When this happens, silence is the loudest scream.

I know!!
