Shut it down, turn it off

Government Funding Bill past (Do you mean “passed”? Is this anyway for a 239 pound stable genius to spell? Someone who could tell the difference between a rhinoceros and a camel?) last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed (Really? You need Democrats now? Imagine that, the great and powerful Trump, the man who doesn’t need anyone now needs Democrats because he can’t get all of the members of his party to support him. Sad), if it is to pass (Hey pass not past! Good job! 1 out of 2, I guess you would consider that winning!) in the Senate – but they want illegal immigration and weak borders (That’s the way to entice the Democrats using the old carrot or the stick, wait a minute, that’s the old stick or the stick. Tell them that you need them and then tell them what a worthless piece of shit they are. You are a smart man, a very smart man. Honestly we don’t deserve someone as smart as you are, really, we don’t deserve you). Shutdown coming (Ya think? And what are you going to do about it? Oh yeah head to Mar-a-Lago and play golf because you are exhausted from all the winning)? We need more Republican victories in 2018 (Good luck with that Mr. 35% approval rating. Let us know how that goes. Oh wait the fake news will let us know. I can’t wait for the Fox News spin on your dismal mid-term elections. I am sure somehow, someway Hillary Clinton will be blamed for it)! – Trump Tweet 1-19-18

Did you know there is an official website of the United States government about bullying? Stopbullying.gov describes three types of bullying;

  1. Verbal bullying is saying or writing mean things.
  2. Social bullying, sometimes referred to as relational bullying, involves hurting someone’s reputation or relationships.
  3. Physical bullying involves hurting a person’s body or possessions.

Sound like anyone you know?

Trump has made no attempt to unite this country since the election. Why? Because it simply isn’t in his DNA. He was elected President because he was different, a bully, a business man and not a politician. His adoring fans assumed he would run the country like he ran his business and sadly, if you correlate bankruptcies with a looming government shutdown, they were correct.

The only real “successes” this psychopath has had is the low hanging fruit he can take credit for with the stroke of a pen. Whether or not tax reform is a bigly success or not is years away from knowing despite Trumps daily instances otherwise 30 days in. Unless the Democrats capture enough seats to gain a majority in the mid-terms I predict our growing economy (thanks President Obama) will stall because no one is minding the store or at least any one with an attention span longer than a hamsters.

I wrote both of my Senators and told them to shut the government down. What do you do when you can’t get your computer to work? You turn it off, reboot it and that’s what this country needs, a reboot. Our Dumb-ass in Chief needs to learn a little humility, he needs a lesson in democracy and yes, the last time I checked this was still a democracy a “Government of the people, by the people, for the people”. A democracy includes more than an orange bully and 35% of the white American rednecks.

Shut it down, flip the switch and see if we can’t get this country back on track and maybe, just maybe the lights in Trumps head will flicker on as well. Yea, I don’t believe that will really happen myself.

Trump tweet from October 7, 2013; “My sense is that people are far angrier at the President than they are at Congress re the shutdown—an interesting turn!”

 

CNN Update: President Donald Trump has canceled his planned trip to his posh Florida resort Friday, anticipating that lawmakers can’t avert the looming government shutdown set to take effect at midnight, according to a government official.

The President had been planning to spend the weekend at Mar-a-Lago for the one-year anniversary of his inauguration and is hosting a Saturday night fundraising soiree with $100,000 tickets.

The amount, confirmed to CNN by a person familiar with the dinner, pays for a couple’s dinner and photograph with Trump. A $250,000 ticket will allow a pair to participate in a roundtable. All proceeds will benefit the Trump Victory Fund, (Me: also known at the Trump Defense Fund) the source confirmed.

  1. Hey, ole buddy, it will take more than a light switch to flip on Trump’s head lights. Maybe an ass kick would help. Hmmmmm, with all that ass to kick , it would be akin to a 10 yard field goal. Ahhhh, I just love having a President who inspires me every morning. By the way, I agree…..shut it down.

    Speaking of tRumpsky … did you read my latest posting (The Two Faces of Trump). I think you’ll find it interesting (written by the guy who “helped” write The Art of the Deal).
