Re: “Open line

tsallen, I doubt that many -- or should that be any? -- in the Trump administration have any idea what FEMA is and should be doing. Couple that with the fact that many or most leadership positions are still in limbo and lower level employees may be too fearful for their jobs to take any initiative and you have an ever mounting disaster.
BUT ...
Over the weekend, we've been counseled about, ahem, correcting inauguration attendance numbers, clarifying that Herr Trump's tax returns are not for public consumption no matter what he implied earlier and observing him signing paperwork to rescind policies that offend his well defined sensibilities.
And they want to talk about "SAD"?

Re: “Open Line

And this morning, the DG has a front page story: "President calls protests 'hallmark of democracy'" accompanied by a photo taken of him and Secret Service director in WH Blue Room.
Wow! The man actually made a non-ranting public pronouncement of some sort, I thought. Uh, no. Make that tweeted, which a reader could discover in the SECOND paragraph.
To the powers that be at the DG: Kinda misleading, that story and photo, wouldn't you say? How about "President tweets ..." and no photo. And below the fold if you really, really think it's front page news.
There's also the matter of a bald inconsistency in word usage and writing style between the two tweets quoted.

Re: “"Alternative facts": Insecure Trump sends lackey to lie to American people

"Impeach Trump now, before American Citizens die because of his dishonesty!"
I'm generally inclined to agree with you, RYD.
But you might want to read a bit more about Pence as I just did. (Dunno why I waited so long.) There's this and a lot more.

Kinda like the choice between the devil and the deep blue sea, it seems. In this case, I guess I'd have to say it's between a politically malleable (more or less) fool and a totalitarian. Perhaps like Agnew during the Nixon/Watergate debacle, Pence needs to go first, but I'm not sure that's politically possible.
We have a mess on our hands.

Re: “Milligan aide: "Gay jokes are back on ya bunch of homos!"

Dang. Between the Trump news and this fool, I'm seriously considering asking my neighbors if they have a spare bottle of booze.
Oh, well, maybe the rain's over here. I guess a long walk is in order. And better for me, too.

Re: “The assault on Obamacare begins

It has to be asked: Are those Bill Clinton's yellow drapes behind Trump?

Re: “The assault on Obamacare begins

Sounds to me like he's telling someone ... not sure who ... to do whatever the hell they want.
Is this the reasoning behind the fact that he and/or his companies have been sued repeatedly for not paying suppliers, contractors, essentially anyone to whom he owes money?
Stall, stall, stall and hope they'll go away? Or in this case, die?
Add to that, without the specificity of law and/or orders, when things red-line he can deny it was his fault. How Trumpian ...
