Blake, The Man With No Plan

December 08, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Well, now a Republican Congresswoman has asked for the lovely and charming Blake Farenthold to step down.

Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) wants Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) to resign from Congress after it was discovered that he used $84,000 in taxpayer money to settle a sexual harassment claim.

“I don’t think he thinks he’s done anything wrong,” Love told CNN Thursday. “But the fact is, someone was paid off. It’s taxpayer dollars that [were] used. This is about people taking responsibility for what they do and changing the culture in Washington.”

No, no, Mia, Honey, he knows he did something wrong. First, he harassed a woman and said crude and vulgar things to her. Then he knows that he paid her off with taxpayer money.  That’s double wrong. He knows it or he wouldn’t have tried to hide it.

Thanks to Ted in Austin for the heads up.

The first thing I ought to mention is the Pew Poll that shows Trump is losing support in every category there is.  College grads – down. White people – down.  Hispanic gay females with physical handicaps and live in rural areas – way the hell down.

 

See the bigger one here.

And you can see all the Pew data right here.

And the Quinnipiac polling is here.

A new Quinnipiac poll finds 70% of Americans believe the U.S. Congress should investigate allegations of sexual harassment against President Trump, while 25% say he should not be investigated.

Well, there ya go.

 

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like … What the Hell!

I live southwest of Houston.  It was 83 degrees here two days ago.

This morning:

 

This picture was taken through my living room window because I am not going out in that stuff. I don’t even know what it is. Looks cold to me.

By the way, we went into Houston last night to hear Joe Biden speak on his book tour.  If you get a chance to go when it comes to your city – do it. He’s funny, smart, self-aware, and tells a good story.

They Are Lining Up.

December 07, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Well, another Republican is out.

Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks is expected to resign, Roll Call reported Thursday afternoon. An Arizona Republican told the digital political outlet that his resignation is likely tied to unspecified allegations of inappropriate behavior. “There’s been rumors swirling around him for years, at least in 2012,” the Republican source said. “And if this turns out to be true there won’t be that many people who are surprised.” Franks’ office said he will make an announcement on Thursday.

Franks is a pro gun, anti abortion, flat tax, anti gay, goofy talking fool.  He was not a fan of President Obama, calling him “an enemy of humanity.”  And other stuff —

“Obama’s first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers’ money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries. Now, I got to tell you, if a president will do that, there’s almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. We shouldn’t be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost his way that badly, that has no ability to see the image of God in these little fellow human beings, if he can’t do that right, then he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity.”

Oh how the haughty crumble.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Just In Case You Missed It

There was another school shooting today.  You can find it tucked under the fold after Franken, California fires, Hezbollah responding to the Trump foolishness, and more Franken.

Two students were killed after gunfire erupted early Thursday at a New Mexico high school, according to law enforcement authorities.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office said the person believed to have opened fire at Aztec High, a school of about 1,000 students near the Colorado border, is also dead.

It doesn’t even make the news anymore.

Thanks to Deb for the heads up.
