    I didn't think it was possible to slur one's speech while writing a blog but yes....yes it is. Sober up mini, you are making a fool out of your family.

  • Michael, I have repeatedly said I was not a Trump voter. I am sorry you have amnesia! Those who disagree with you are not all alike. I actually pity you for your delusions.

    I voted for Gary Johnson. Trump is not my guy anymore than Hillary is my gal. I predicted Trump would win, but that does not make me a fan.

    Take a breath, relax, and realize that all empires end up the same way. They overspend, they get full of corruption, and they go broke. Other nations then feast on the carcass. All your blogging, fretting, and anger will never change the world.

    Your guy Obama may have won the peace prize, but he continued the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for 8 years. Then he tried to double down with conflicts in Syria and Ukraine. Now he is sending our troops to the border of Russia in Poland. WW III is what he risks now. Man of Peace--HAH!

    Remember what Barak promised? He was going to get us out of the Middle East and shut down the offshore prison in Cuba. I think you have amnesia for sure, Michael.

    George Bush got us into those conflicts for very dubious reasons, and kept our troops fighting there for nothing. But Barak is no different. They are both controlled by the Deep State which benefits from the conflicts.

    Always look at who benefits. Presidents come and go along with the figure heads of DC departments, but those just below remain, and they control Washington.

    Trump has really ticked off the NSA and CIA by doubting their analysis of Russia (they want war with Russia to increase their power). He may suffer assassination for doing so. Remember when JFK did that to the CIA and what happened to him? I hope they don't do that to Trump but they have the capability.

    People elected Trump for many reasons although I think the main one was this: Hillary was for sale to the highest bidder--all her scandals have been financial (while Bill's were all sexual). With Trump nobody knows what we'll get, but with Hillary many knew what we'd get. Less of two evils.

    Now that Hillary has lost, she has no influence to peddle, and the funds for the Clinton Foundation have dried up. That's why they are shutting down the Foundation, and they will keep the millions left for themselves. She got millions from Russia to approve the sale of uranium to them, but you link Trump to Russia instead. Because the media plays that tune. Learn to see deeper to the truth. Our media just reports what the Deep State wants it to.

    Always ask "Who benefits?" Follow the money, Michael. Who funded Hillary's campaign?

  • "That is the RNC that has actually they were ever hacked though they were."

    Tip to Michael.....incoherent sentences hurt your credibility.

    And you aspired to be a teacher? Seems to me you are happier with your career as a complainer.

    Funny though, I will give you that. Another chuckle from you is always a treat!

    Looking forward to the next one!

    Have a nice day!

    "Remember what Barak promised? He was going to get us out of the Middle East and shut down the offshore prison in Cuba. I think you have amnesia for sure, Michael."

    Before speaking of someone else's delusions John you should check yours at the door. I cannot really answer to all of your challenges but I will answer to two.

    As for the quoted distinction above I will not defend Obama on the ongoing wars. I have not and will not. As a pacifist I do not think our military should be anywhere in the world except for home. As a realist I know this is not possible. As for Gitmo (it's odd that you refused to name it) he repeatedly tried to close the doors but there is another body in the federal government that he has to go through in order to fully close the doors. You may have heard of it, Congress. In order for him to permanently close Gitmo, Congress has to approve it, they did not.

    "Now that Hillary has lost, she has no influence to peddle, and the funds for the Clinton Foundation have dried up. That's why they are shutting down the Foundation, and they will keep the millions left for themselves."

    You should probably fact check your information as the Clinton's first put in the paperwork to shutter that Foundation in August, it became official yesterday. It is telling that some of your language in regards to this matches with Breitbart.

    Facts hurt sometimes, I know.

    You tell me to take a breath and relax, yet your entire post was full of some serious conspiracy theories going on.

  • Michael,

    You want war in Syria, too? Barak and Hillary are your people then. We dropped 12,000 bombs there last year! You want war with Russia, and sending troops to the Russian border? Ever wonder why your Democratic leaders are in favor of those ventures? There is tremendous money in war, and a lot of it ends up in the hands of the politicians who push wars.

    As I said previously, George Bush and Cheney pushed the same things as Barak Obama has.

    Both the Democrats and Republicans hated Trump's candidacy. Because he doesn't favor that program. The money train was going to dry up for BOTH parties. No difference.

    The main stream media is beholden to the powers that be in Washington. It's not just Pravda that toes the party line. We have been constantly lied to by the people at the NSA, White House, and the CIA, and the MSM have been complicit in allowing those lies to stand. You have to seek the truth in other places, Michael. If you just get your news from FOX, CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, Google, Yahoo, and Huffington Post, you are just getting the approved version. Read foreign media outside the US and you get closer to the truth.

    The spending increases under both parties, the national debt increases under both parties, the needless wars continue under both parties. The government gets bigger and more powerful, and more intrusive into our lives under both parties. One party passed the Patriot Act, and the other party continues it. They both bow down to the NSA and CIA (who undoubtedly have dirt on everyone in Washington).

    There is NO difference between the two parties except the names. I know you think otherwise. If you are aware and thinking, you cannot reach any other conclusion. But the politicians and media keep people stirred up against each other over this false dichotomy. While the masses fight this false battle, the leaders of both sides take our money, our lives, and our freedom.

    Congress made it legal for the government to push propaganda.

    I picture mini in a closet trembling right now, possibly sucking on his thumb, with visions of Members of the Trump Train, running through what's left of his mind. He waits for the meds to saturate his mind and then yes......yes.....there is peace now. Now he can muster the strength to rise up out of this closet and remove the pacifier from his lips and lash out at these people who torment him so. He now has the strength to type his inane words to show them who is the boss. Type....type ....type Now I am smarter than all of them he says, chest puffed out. Now I will show them, all six of them............... and then the reality sets in.........I am alone......I have changed NO ONE"S opinion with my words.......I am never going to be what I want to be.............Now, Where did I put that passy and I need to find a pillow for my closet time, that floor is hard in there.

  • Woo Wee! I'll take the socratic paradox on this one. On the lighter side, anyone know why dog's are man's best friend? They wag their tail and not their tongue.

    Do You Know Someone Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)?

    TURD is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.

    Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.

    People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.

    TURD Is caused by the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite.

    Research is ongoing, but TURD appears to correlate closely with some of the following environmental and behavioral factors:

    * Membership in the Democratic Party

    * Identifying as a Feminist

    * Currently enrolled in college, and/or Possession of a Liberal Arts college degree

    * Living in a densely populated metropolitan area

    * Massive student debt

    * Spotty or non-existent work history

    Patients with TURD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality. Separation may require the assistance of law enforcement.

    If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TURD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge, and Make America Great Again.

    I really don't think treatment is possible only time may heal. Of course if they exhibit violent tendencies report to the police as possible terrorists.

  • And another:

    Twas the night before Inauguration, and up in the tower,

    The Donald reflected on his newfound power.

    The conservative masses had come out in force,

    And delivered a victory that would chart a new course.

    The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes,

    The media lied to them . . . What a surprise.

    They had been promised a Hillary win,

    But the criminal Clinton took one on the chin.

    And though from all corners celebrities flew,

    They made no impression, for they hadn't a clue.

    They talked about climate, racism, and such,

    And they made up good stories . . . But didn't know much.

    The fake news and ignorance came at a cost,

    And they can't understand all the reasons they lost.

    They blame it on Comey and Bernie and Vlad,

    But fail to acknowledge the one that was bad.

    Yes, Hillary Clinton, in many ways flawed,

    Was her own biggest hurdle toward getting the nod.

    The campaign exposed her corruptness and greed,

    And her speeches were punch-less as ten dollar weed.

    So out in the streets there arose such a clatter,

    It was Soros-paid protestors and Black Lives Matter.

    With cities to pillage and windows to smash,

    They knew not the issues, but needed the cash.

    Eight years of Obama had given them cause,

    To expect a replacement of their Santa Claus.

    But soon the protestors will feel the pain,

    When the wheels fall off of the old gravy train.

    And now all the snowflakes are riddled with fear,

    Upset and offended by things that they'll hear.

    The cocoa and crayons will help for a while,

    But fact-based opinions will soon cramp their style.

    I originally supported, and voted, for Cruz, (NOT - ALWAYS SUPPORTED PRESIDENT TRUMP!)

    In the end, I would vote for whoever they choose.

    He wasn't my first choice, but soon I would cede,

    The one they call Trump is the one that we need.

    I saw him on TV in front of a crowd,

    He spoke about veterans, it made me feel proud.

    He spoke about energy, safety, and jobs,

    Taking this country back from the Washington snobs.

    He was dressed in Armani, all tailored and neat,

    And the Brunos he wore made the outfit complete.

    For a man of his vintage, he seemed rather fit,

    And he looked presidential, I have to admit.

    His eyes glowed like embers, his smile was the best,

    And his hair was the color of my old hunting vest.

    His love for this country was on full display,

    And his actions spoke louder than his words could say.

    He thanked all his voters, and before he was gone,

    Saved thousands of jobs while Obama looked on.

    The fate of this country left nothing to chance,

    So, he filled out his cabinet weeks in advance.

    The men he had chosen were of the same mind,

    Let's set the bar high, and not lead from behind.

    He picked up his phone as he rose from his seat,

    With a flick of his finger, he sent out this tweet;

    "Now Mattis!, now Kelly!' now Sessions! And Pruitt!

    On Perry! On Flynn, You're the ones who can do it.

    Start lifting restrictions and building the wall,

    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!";

    The roar of his audience rose from the stands,

    He kissed all their babies and shook all their hands.

    He answered their questions and calmed all their fears,

    They knew it would be a fantastic four years.

    Then he jumped in his limo, and off to his jet,

    A fellow that Liberals won't soon forget.

    He sent one more tweet as the evening expired;

    "Happy Inauguration to all,
