Marginalia

March 21, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Sumbitches, Trump

Definition of marginalia

  1. 1:  marginal notes or embellishments (as in a book)

  2. 2:  nonessential items the meat and marginalia of American politics — Saturday Rev.

  3. 3:  members of Cheeto Jesus’ campaign staff, namely Paul Manafort, Carter Page, Roger Stone, Sam Clovis, and Steve Bannon.  Usage: “Then you have the whole Manafort-Ukraine thing and Roger Stone running around doing whatever Roger Stone is doing.  This campaign, early on, had a lot of marginalia associated with it. Guys like Carter Page, Roger Stone. I have no earthly idea what those guys have been up to, right?”

The definition of marginalia has traditionally referred to notes in the margins of books and journals.  Today, it also refers to the weirdos, gangsters, and cronies surrounding the new, er, uh…(urp) president.

 

US Debt – The Difference Between Manure and Filet Mignon

March 18, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Holy Crap, Sumbitches, Trump, Uncategorized

Yesterday morning on CBS, James Baker was interviewed about a number of issues including the escalation of war threats between the idiot in the White House and the idiot running North Korea. The issue he focused on, though?  The “ticking debt bomb”.  He warned of the unsustainable level of debt that is almost 100% of GDP (a measure used by economists), asserting that we must cut “entitlements” to get it under control.  I asked myself, “Is that really true?”  I’ve taken a simpleton’s approach to this question, just using math, not political spin.  For the purpose of this discussion, I’m going to ignore defense and other discretionary spending – that’s a whole other kettle of fish and a subject for a future post, probably after I’ve been drinking.

So I looked at a couple of things:  First, I assume entitlements to Baker mean Social Security (more…)

Big Bend Border Wall? Stupid.

March 16, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Sumbitches, Trump

Cheeto Jesus is apparently eying Big Bend National Park for his border wall because it’s federal land.  The problem is that God already beat him to it:

Apparently to our, uh… (urp) president, if he can’t see it from Cheeto Tower, it’s all flat to him.

Stupid.

Dismantling “the Administrative State”

March 15, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Sumbitches, Trump

The White House just announced that Cheeto Jesus will be unveiling his new budget priorities tomorrow which include slashing the EPA budget by 31% and the State Department by 28%.  Son of Jabba the Hut, known as Steve Bannon to non-aliens, said this was part of CJ’s efforts to “dismantle the administrative state.”

Funny they bring up the State Department…A couple of weeks ago, I was in Canada for a meeting; stupidly I had let my passport expire at the end of the month, so to make it easier to get back into the states the following week, I decided to just go to a US Consulate and get an emergency renewal.  I called the US Consulates in Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, and even Houston.  I called no less than 10 times, never got a human, and never got a call back to my numerous messages.  In the end, I was able to talk my way back in since I am part of Global Entry.  The customs agent was actually pretty cool, said it happened all the time, and signed me through.

When I got back to Houston, I called the US Passport office to get an appointment to renew – and called and called and called.  So, far, no call back, no one answering the phones here, either.  So, I’ve got a great idea, why don’t we slash the State Department budget  so services to citizens will suck even MORE?

Oh, I left out the good part about CJ’s plan – he’s going to take the savings and reduce the deficit build more war machines.  After all, spending half of our discretionary spending on war making simply isn’t enough.

Jesus.  No, really.  Jesus.
