Put A Stamp On It!

Did you ever put a stamp on an envelope and notice that it often says in the upper right hand corner that the Post Office will not deliver your mail without the proper postage attached?

So what’s all the fuss that our President is trying to create by telling us that Amazon is not paying to have its packages delivered? Just how would they get away with that when everyone knows that the Post Office doesn’t carry our letters, packages and mail around for free? Did you ever try to pop something in the mail without postage????

If you’re lucky the Post Office will send it back to you with a note that says (See above)…if not, you’ll just never see your mail again…nor will anyone else…

The Post Office is not funded by American tax dollars and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. And while it is true that the P.O. is suffering from a large amount of debt that’s only because most of the Postal Service’s financial problems have been created by a government mandate that it pay up front for retiree pension and health care expenses. That’s because an act of Congress says that it has to… (private businesses that have retiree benefit obligations are not required to pay those amounts up front.)… And those P.O. obligations for current and past employees stood at $38 billion at the end of its most recent fiscal year.

And that’s why The Postal Service’s debt is so high. It’s a direct result of the Congressional mandate that it must pay for 10 years to pre-fund the retiree healthcare plan and pension fund…not because Amazon is having it’s mail delivered for free.

And yet our President insists on tweeting:

“I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy. Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne by the American Taxpayer. Many billions of dollars. P.O. leaders don’t have a clue (or do they?)!”

Does our President have a clue? He should, because…well…like…He is the President!…Of the United States! And he could ask someone who works in the White House or in his Cabinet or in Congress…or Melania even! I bet she knows or could certainly ask someone for him.

But noooooooooo…instead the President has issued an executive order calling for an investigation into the Postal Service’s finances so that we can spend some real taxpayer’s money trying to once again find out who ate the strawberries when we already know who did it…our own President, Captain Queeg!

Just imagine… 2 and a half more years of having to watch the President of the United States…just mailing it in every day…and without a stamp!?

 

3 Years and Counting…

30 Dec

HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone! We’ve survived one year, now let’s see if we can make it through another three!…(subtracting vacations that would be only 2 working years in President Trump time)

“I have the greatest stuff and you know what? I love golf. But if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again. I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again. I own Doral in Miami. I don’t think I’d ever see many of the places I have. I don’t think I’d ever see anything, I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off and make great deals, right? Who’s gonna leave?”

Nice Work If You Can Get It

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!

22 Oct

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…

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!

 

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”…

 

Hang-Over Holiday?

19 Jan

Donald and Melania Trump

Somewhere around noon on Friday January 20th Mr Donald Trump will officially become the 45th President of the United States..but if you are worried about being immediately deported or if you have to start that new job you were hired for to build the Great Mexican Wall or if you are worried about your health-care policy being terminated or even if you are Hillary Clinton and worried about being arrested, you can rest easy until  January 23rd.

Because Mr. Trump has announced that his first official day as POTUS won’t begin until Monday because immediately after being sworn in he’s going to take his first vacation.

“Day one – which I will consider to be Monday as opposed to Friday or Saturday. Right? I mean my day one is gonna be Monday because I don’t want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration.” said The 45th President-Elect to a reporter from The Times.

Wow! Could you imagine how Republicans would have reacted if President Obama had said that back in 2008? The first African American President taking a vacation to party and celebrate immediately after being sworn in?! They’re collective heads would have exploded, right after they had all pooped their pants!

(Note to Russia: Attack immediately!)

Anyway, now imagine that the Obama children and Michelle O.had stayed in school back in Chicago to finish out their 2008/09 school year. NYC has reported that it will cost over 1 million dollars a day to supply the necessary security for Melania and Baron T. to stay in New York to finish their shopping….er..um school year…and that doesn’t even include the Secret Service costs.

That’s 1 billion dollars by mid June! Plus President Trump-to-be plans to fly back and forth regularly on the weekends and Melania will be doing the same when she needs to be in Washington. This will cost a fortune in security costs for the Secret Service and for NYC, all to be paid for with tax dollars of course.

But he will be the President of the United States and he and his family deserve and need to be protected and no one will deny or dispute that…but just imagine how the Republican minions, who went positively apoplectic anytime the Obama’s took a vacation or President O. played a round of golf, would have behaved had they charged the USA billions of dollars just to come and go as they pleased during the work week!

OMG! Generals Jackson and Lee would have risen from the grave and led an army of newly minted, “Stars and Bars” waving, confederates along side resurrected cadavers in a march on Washington!…Am I wrong?

Of course former NYC Mayor and billionaire, Michael Bloomberg, payed for his own travel back and forth to his home in Bermuda from Friday afternoon to Sunday evenings on many weekends during his 12 years in office. He even payed for 2 police officers on his protection detail to stay in a hotel during those weekends. But after all Mr. Bloomberg was only running a major US city not the entire country! And he is a billionaire after all.

But Donald Trump is a billionaire too, isn’t he?  He says that he is although we have never seen any proof as to how many billions he actually has. According to Forbes, Mr. Bloomberg has 41.8 billion…and Mr. Trump has about 3.7, so the likely hood of President trump picking up the tab for his presidential commutes to NYC and back is about as likely as First Lady Melania using a non gold plated commode in the White House…

I know, that’s mean…but let’s just say this whole inauguration and transition thing from the 44th POTUS to the 45th POTUS is bringing out the “Trump” in me…Oh well, Happy stay-cation! See you on Monday bright and early…and maybe a bit hung-over…

Boy I sure am glad the Obamas weren’t this needy!
