Biting Off Your Nose To Spite Your Face

September 30, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

So the damn United States Congress voted to override President Obama’s veto of the 911-bill that allows US citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over 911.

It was the first time they have overridden any of Obama’s vetoes.

Then they woke up this morning and realized what they did.  Brexit revisited.

U.S. lawmakers on Thursday expressed doubts about Sept. 11 legislation they forced on President Barack Obama, saying the new law allowing lawsuits against Saudi Arabia could be narrowed to ease concerns about its effect on Americans abroad.

… the White House argued it could have negative repercussions on U.S. citizens and companies who could be subject to suits over U.S. government actions.

It’s an election year and nobody wanted to be against 911 victims getting whatever they can from Saudi Arabia.

Congress claims they are going to “fit it,” read: gut it after the election.

It’s times like these that I realize that no matter how cynical I get, I can’t keep up with Congress.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Trump Team Baffled By Words!

September 29, 2016 By: Primo Encarnación Category: Uncategorized

The Trump campaign has published a list of acceptable words for everyone to use so that the Republican candidate and his merry minions don’t get confused. “They won’t stick to our talking bits,” complained one aide.  “We don’t know what is meaned.” The new lexicon is mostly synonyms for “big,” and has fewer words than the average dog understands.

The list, comprising approximately 200 words and their derivative forms, including “bigly,” represents an effort on the campaign’s behalf to ensure that no one can look smarter than the tongue-tied Trump, simply by having an eighth grade vocabulary.

For instance, that last paragraph would translate into Trumpspeak as “The list has lots of words, good words, the BEST words and it’s a huge list, so that Mr Trump can talk gooder than anyone.  It has lots of words, I can tell you them all, I could tell more than anyone.”

Ironically, the list does not contain the word “irony.”  Kellyanne Conway, Trump “Big Talker Person” says that “the running for President man has superior genes which do not include the gene for that word you just said that we don’t know of but emails, Benghazi.”

Under the new Trump Rules of Tawkin and Speling, all sentences must end with the words “email, Benghazi.”  Also, under the new rules, Trump’s verbal SAT score has been retroactively raised from 17 to 1000 on a scale of 800.

Trump rules for that number thingy (fka “Math”) will have be wroted soonly, email.

And there’s more.  National searches for “registrarse para votar” See full size here.



Thank you, Donald Trump.  By the way, my Latina friends say that Alicia Machado is all over Spanish language teevee.

You go, Girl!

Thanks to Deb for the heads up.
