Smoke Em If You Got Em…Now

Here is an interesting development in the never ending war on drugs.

As more states lessen or eliminate marijuana penalties, the Army is granting hundreds of waivers to enlist people who used the drug in their youth…as long as they realize they can’t use it again in the military.

The number of waivers granted by the active-duty Army for marijuana use jumped to more than 500 this year from 191 in 2016 while only three years ago, no waivers were granted. This increase in marijuana use waivers is just one way officials are dealing with orders to expand the Army’s size.

Meanwhile Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced that the federal government is preparing to crack down on recreational marijuana use, a change that he’s been preparing since he took over the Justice Department.

And even though a group of prosecutors and law enforcement officials wrote a report asking that existing policies on the decriminalization of marijuana use not be changed, AG Sessions said that, “It’s my view that the use of marijuana is detrimental and we should not give encouragement in any way to it. I don’t want to suggest in any way that this department believes that marijuana is harmless and people should not avoid it.”

Oddly enough opioid use has been shown to be reduced in states where people have access to legal marijuana and AG Sessions recent statements on marijuana were made at a press conference concerning the Department of Justice’s plan to combat the opioid epidemic.

So even though you may live in a state where it is perfectly legal to buy, sell and use marijuana you might still find yourself arrested by federal agents upholding federal law in efforts to fight the opioid epidemic!… Which of course would be completely counter productive to that fight and make opioids (which are completely legal) once again the drug of choice and availability.

C’est la guerre! So join the army!… and Smoke em if ya got em… Now!

Musings about America: 12/1/2017

Men are jerks! To borrow a quote from president Trump: “Who knew?”…Could it be everybody?

If the Republican’s tax bill becomes law and property taxes and states taxes will no longer be deductible from one’s federal income, who will want to live in New Jersey? And as a consequence shouldn’t New Jersey homeowners expect to see their home values crash in 2018?

I suppose there will also be a tax on pork roll in 2018? (That’s a New Jersey thing)

North Korea now has a missile that can reach the East coast of the United States. If Washington burns will President Trump tweet?

When male entertainers and TV personalities are accused of inappropriate sexual encounters in the workplace they are immediately fired from their jobs. But when male Congressmen and President’s are accused of inappropriate sexual encounters in the government place, they remain on the job at their own discretion (But do they even have discretion?)

…Could it be because our most powerful Washington politicians do not really work for us? They don’t have to worry about ratings or have bosses who are national sponsors who have to also sell products to the electorate. Washington politicians have wealthy individual “donors” who show them large personal checks for their patronage…and I bet those donors (if they’re men) also show them their penises sometimes too.

Women need to start voting for women who run for public office all of the time, every time, because whether you like them or not they will most probably not be walking around their offices in their underwear, having sex with their interns… and definitely will not be dropping their pants at any time to show anyone their penises!…that alone should guarantee that they’ll get a lot more government work done.

Last year President Trump, then presidential candidate Trump, apologized for lewd and crude comments that he had made during a past taping of Access Hollywood. He said it was just locker room talk… This year he says that he doesn’t believe that it was his voice on that A.H. tape at all. Can a President’s voice be kidnapped? And If so, how does he get it back?

Former National Security Advisor and retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn has just pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI…and yet Hillary Clinton is considered by many American’s to be a lying bitch who should be locked up?… At Mr. Flynn’s urging too I might add…So Who’s the lying b…bastard now?

President Trump recently retweeted a British ultra-nationalist feed containing unverified video of “Muslims” and “Islamists” committing acts of violence and vandalism, then suggested that morning host Joe Scarborough may be a murderer, and then called for NBC and Comcast heads to resign for being “fake news” outlets. And yet he calls NFL players “Sons of Bitches” for publicly exercising their rights to free speech…because they do it in front of the American flag? Is an American President’s speech not always representative of our flag?…if not more so?

Does anyone remember that Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian interference and possible collusion within our election process and government… by President Trump’s own Justice Department!? Mr. Mueller is a Republican and career law enforcement officer who is widely respected on both sides of the aisle. Liberals and Democrats have nothing to do with this investigation because Democrats have NO power in Washington… so didn’t President Trump start his own “witch hunt”?

Is a tweet speech? Or is the twitter zone just a place where anyone can say anything without consequence or ownership? Press Secretary Sanders says it doesn’t matter whether a tweet represents reality or not…so is it the absence of thought that counts?

U.N. ambassador Niki Haley announced that “if China does not cut off North Korea’s oil supply then the USA will”…(cut off the oil supply from China to North Korea?)  Is it beginning to look a lot like war this Christmas?

And Whatever happened to the good people of Flint Michigan and their lead contaminated water? Over 100,000 residents (everyone) were exposed to high levels of  lead in their drinking water through no fault of their own… back in 2014! This is what is wrong with the news. It’s not that it’s fake. It’s that it has to be new and timely and provocative, worth our time and the media’s money…meanwhile in Flint, residents have been instructed to continue to use bottled or filtered water until all the lead pipes have been replaced, which is expected to be completed no sooner than 2020!!!

But on the bright side tax breaks for the mostly wealthy should arrive by the New Year! And is that, Charlie Brown, really what Christmas is all about?

And finally, When you take all of the numbers of 2018 and add them together you get 11…that’s lucky! If you multiply them you get 0…that’s nothing! When you divide them the answer is undefined…that’s a mystery…So, What lies ahead in 2018?

Something tells me… we ain’t seen nothing yet!

 

Nice Work If You Can Get It

trumpgolf2.png

Here is a fun fact…President Trump has already golfed on average 1 out of every 4 of his days in office as The President of the United states. So if he continues on this pace, then after his 4 year term as President, he will have spent 1 full year on the golf course and only 3 years in his office.

And the best part is that he only golfs at Trump golf courses where his Secret Service Agents must rent golf carts in order to follow the president and protect him as he makes his way through fairways, sand traps and other golf hazards. ( I seriously don’t know why they can’t just follow him around on foot? How fast can a 70+ year old play?)

But I digress, because at the current rate of golf cart rentals the Secret Service is spending over $100,000 per year just on that…and all of that money goes into President Trump’s golfing businesses. So that’s over $400,000 for golf cart rentals alone over a 4 year presidency which means that President Trump will not only spend 1/4 of his time in office golfing, but he will also be paid for it in an amount equal to 1 year of his presidential salary.

And if we calculate all of the money spent by the Secret Service renting rooms at his properties etc. etc. etc…and add it to President trump’s income, well, all I can say is…  Nice work if you can get it, huh? And get paid while doing it too!? And while not even working?! And after trashing our former POTUS for golfing too… at 1/8 the frequency!

Wow! America, meet our plutocratic, pietistical, Polytetrafluoroethylene POTUS! Making America (and himself) Great Again…one swing at a time.

Hey Republicans…At least he’s not Obama, right? (wink, wink)

 

We’re All Rich!

Renoir

I’m Rich and you must be too! It turns out that I own an original Renoir painting valued at…a fortune! President Trump says that he has this painting (pictured above) hanging in his home and that it is an original Renoir.

His biographer told him that he was being silly because the “real” original is hanging in the Art Institute of Chicago, or so they have said, since 1933…but I have the same painting hanging in my home too! So who has the really, real Renoir???

Maybe the artist painted several originals that have somehow fallen into all of our hands? Could be? Who’s to say? Do you trust Donald Trump’s biographer who has since been denounced by President trump himself? And Chicago is just a violent, sanctuary city full of fake news, violent drug offenders and killers. Who believes anyone from there?

So it appears as though all… or many… or at least some, of our home wall paintings might be originals! Yours too! We’re all rich! MAGA! Yahoo! Yippee! Eureka!…And this comes straight from the President of the United States, the leader of the free world! Talk about an endorsement!

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to keep my painting right where it is and remain secure in the knowledge that I am wealthy from now on. I’m not going to try to sell it to some fake news and knowledge rip-off artist who’s going to try and rip me off with some made up story about how it’s a copy or something. No way!

I’m loaded now and I’m going to stay that way and brag about it to all of my jealous guests whenever they come to visit me and my Renoir. Besides… if I sell it I’d probably have to pay taxes to some greedy government swamp dwelling hacks. No Thank you!

No sirree! I’m rich I tell you! Rich! MAGA! And thank you Mr. President! Finally somebody is getting something done around here! MAGA! Now, I’m off to catalogue my collection! (You should too!) MAGA!

It’s Just Business America, Just Business…

Image result for columbus day sale

Today, President Trump’s campaign announced an “exclusive Columbus Day sale,” offering 25% off Trump-branded merchandise.

The Email sent to Trump campaign subscribers wrote: “As leftists push harder and harder to erase our nation’s past, there’s never been a better time to celebrate our history. America’s past is being vilified and stripped away by liberals in the media and our schools — but we won’t stand for it.” …

So there is nothing like enjoying a discount to make you feel better is there?!… Just use code 1492. (for all of you history buffs out there) I kid you not…this is too true to make up.

This of course is not the first time that a President has made a speech on Columbus Day to honor the old explorer, but it is the first time that a POTUS has done his best to profit from it by selling his own merchandise (at discount prices no less!) as though he were representing Macy’s or K-Mart rather than the United States of America…and while bashing at least half of all Americans in the process!

Nothing is worse for America than liberals the media and schools! So let’s all work to make America Great Again by shopping on-line for hats and other crap with our President’s name on it!

Because everyone knows that good old Chris Columbus was not looking for a new world (with Liberals, Leftists, Natives, Immigrants, Newsmen, Scholars, Protesters, Africans, Latinos and Jews in it!!!) He was looking for a way to get to the other side of the OLD world…

…So he could go shopping, of course! MAGA!

 

Who’s A Moron?

6 Oct

According to reports from several news outlets US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, at a meeting of national security officials at the Pentagon, threatened to resign his position over disagreements that he and the President have had over…well, just about everything…and then he called President Trump a “moron.”

But later at a press conference Secretary Tillerson said: “There’s never been a consideration in my mind to leave. I serve at the appointment of the president, and I am here for as long as the president feels I can be useful to achieving his objectives.”

However when asked directly if he had called Mr. Trump a “moron,” Secretary Tillerson said: “I’m not going to deal with petty stuff like that,”…Which of course means that he did call the President a moron.

President Trump supposedly is furious about all of this and apparently believes that we, the people of America who don’t blindly believe in his infallibility are the real morons for listening to and believing fake news reports such as this one.

But really what’s the big deal? President Trump has called people lots of unflattering and insulting names. He called former Secretary of State Clinton “evil”. President Obama was “sick”. Senator McCain a “coward”. Senator Cruz a “pussy”. Carly Fiorina was “ugly”. Megyn Kelly a “lightweight”. Ben Carson was a “liar”. A disabled reporter was “retarded”. The Pope was “disgraceful”. Mexicans are “rapists”. Puerto Ricans are “lazy”… and David Duke?…him he “doesn’t know much about”.

Meanwhile Melania Trump, the First Trophy Wife of the United States, (I could be mistaken? And is that an insult?) is doing her best to combat bullying in the United States??? And hopefully soon she will get to the bottom of it.

So who is the real moron in all of this ridiculous debate? You? Me? Secretary Tillerson? The media? The POTUS? The FLOTUS?

Well, we now live in a country where our President can do and say whatever he pleases about whomever he pleases, and he can do it in real time and on Twitter and then even Tweet that he never said what he said he said, even when we have copies of what he said on our own “smart” (not moron) phones and he can insult entire countries and the peoples in them (including our own!) and with the threat of total annihilation and war and he can do it all without the least bit of…

propriety, seemliness, decency, correctness, courtesy, good manners, dignity, good form, respectability, modesty, protocol, custom, convention, politeness, decorum or good taste…

and he still gets to be our POTUS for the next 4 years???….wait!

It’s our Founding Fathers! They’re THE MORONS!

(sorry Founding Fathers but you did not think of everything!)

How Dare We Disrespect Our President…

27 Sep

Some people are outraged about folks who they believe are disrespecting America and who have called out President Trump for being a white supremacist. Is he? I don’t know the President personally but It’s definitely up for debate based on his own actions and words…unless of course, you tend not to believe in what you see and hear.

But despite that, here is a video compilation of some of the hateful and disrespectful things that Republicans and Conservatives had to say about President Obama during his presidency. Are they equally as inflammatory and disrespectful and hateful? I’ll let you decide…and remember President Obama had just followed a Republican President who had all but destroyed our economy and military by following Republican doctrine for 8 years.

And Republicans, who don’t even like to mention their Republican President George W. Bush by name anymore went so far as to vow to not help the newly elected Democratic president in helping put the country back together again…and they didn’t.

Did you watch that? What do you think? And now Republicans want to take apart all of the repairs that President Obama put in place during the 8 years following the debacle of President Dub-ya and most Republicans are on board with that. They want to go back to endless war, free wheeling bankers and limited healthcare… for all…

And here is their new President re-tweeting a video about what he thinks about his opponent in the 2016 election for president… that he won. How would you characterize this president, our president, after watching this following tweet from September 13th, 2017?

https://t.co/vKhxxFCBV1

Do Republicans have any right to be outraged about anything anyone else says or does? Is this how we make America great again? With duplicitous, whining, feigned, outrage and scoundrel-ism?

When will Republicans ever develop the courage to say out loud who they really are and what they really believe in?… as far as I can tell it’s Self admiration, Superiority and the opportunistic loathing of “others”…
