OBLIVION THIS WAY COMES

“I don’t have a dog in this fight.” This is really a great phrase. It says it all. My Dad died at 56 of a heart attack, so I never thought I’d make it to even 65. And yet I sit here at age 72. By my math I figure I’m on borrowed time.
But as I consider you ‘youngsters’ out there I must ask, “How stupid can you be?” If you have doubted in the least that the swamp President Trump talked about actually exists, just look at what happened last night. Republicans and Democrats got together and agreed on a budget which is going to do nothing less than push us closer to the brink of oblivion.
Do any of you remember what happened in Greece? They were pushed over the brink screaming and squealing for the government handouts that sent them over that brink. Greece was fortunate; their economy was small enough to be saved by their European neighbors. When we go over the edge there will be only oblivion because we are too big to save.
Can it be that you all are too stupid to see that ‘brink’ toward which we are rushing? Are you saying, “Oh, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about? It’s not that big of a problem. We’ve got plenty of time.” I have no grandchildren and my time is limited. But if you have grandchildren or you are young with children you will be responsible for their doom if you do not take a stand against this continuing deficit spending. YOU! Not Chuck Schumer or Paul Ryan. YOU! They will only do what you allow them to do. They are the swamp. And you are their enablers.
The thought does cross my mind, “Why did I just waste 20 minutes composing this rant, this screed – I don’t have a dog in this fight?” How about you?

STEPINAPILEOFPOOPUS

OK, ol’ George Stepinapileofpoopus is up to his old tricks. In his efforts to help the Democrats (with ABC’s blessing) he was in full attack mode against the “Memo” yesterday. To open the show he “interviewed” Adam Schiff, the chief Dem on the ‘Trump Collusion Committee. Now, Adam is a lying scumbag right from the start. Several times prior to James Comey’s public appearance before the committee, reporters asked him if Trump was under investigation. Every time he said he did not know. But when Comey testified publicly he said that he had informed the committee several times that Trump was not under investigation. So every time Schiff was asked if he knew he did, in fact, know that Trump was not under investigation, but lied and said he did not know. Anyway, I’m a little hesitant to say that George “interviewed” Schiff. A better description would be to say that George tossed him some softballs and stood back while Schiff made short speeches.

Then George “interviewed” Will Hurd, a GOP member of the same committee. I hesitate, also, to call this an “interview.” What happened was that George would ask a question, after which I counted at least 10 times he interrupted Hurd’s attempt to answer. Not only did he interrupt, but several of the interruptions were not just other questions. Several of the interruptions were to argue with Hurd about his partially given answer. There’s nothing really new in this behavior. In fact, it is pretty much standard fare for George, his occasional stand in, Martha Rabbits and for that matter, NBC’s Chuck Toad on Meet the Press.

Then George brought in his “round table.” The round table consisted of (counting George) 4 ‘Trump haters,’ 1 GOP ‘never Trumper’ and 1 former member of Trump’s team. So it was 5 to 1. I’ll leave you to gaze into your crystal ball and figure out how that conversation went.
