It’s Like Watergate All Over…But With Bigger Scarier Liars

Yesterday the Attorney General of the United States answers questions in front of the Republican controlled Senate.  The Russia/Obstruction of Justice Probe aka The Mueller Report is worse than Watergate.   Why do American’s who support Trump not see that he is a man who puts himself above all others, including the LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

Mr. Barr lied the first time around to Congress.  His testimony is a matter of record.  Yet he struggled for the right verbiage to make his lies seem not so bad.  This man is the highest level of Law Enforcement in the U.S.  Are you scared yet?  If you aren’t…you are in for a rude awakening once the days of Trumptonian Politics are over.

“Mr. Barr, the American people know you are no different from Rudy Giuliani or Kellyanne Conway, or any of the other people who sacrifice their once decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the oval office.  […] A lot of respected nonpartisan legal experts and elected officials were surprised by your efforts to protect the president. But I wasn’t surprised. You did exactly what I thought you’d do, that’s why I voted against your confirmation. I expected you would try to protect the president. And indeed, you did.” ~~Sen. Mazie Hirono, May 1, 2019

Like so many who side with Trump they are the ones who put their careers and reputations on the line for a man who demands loyalty from others but extends no loyalty back.  He is a man of NO CHARACTER.  Trump was bred that way by generations of cowardice men pretending they better than everyone else, which of course, they certainly are NOT!  The most ridiculous of all of the Trump Supporters in the Senate would be Lindsay Graham.  He has become a hysterical shrieking obsequious little man.  He is telling us, matter of factually, that the Mueller Investigation/Report are over.  You know, because he said so.  Everyone should be laughing at that.   I think when someone glossed over the discussion of the Mueller Report to dive right into HRC’s emails again didn’t realize they just validated the need for them to delve deeper into the Report and get to the heart of the redactions.

Oh, and for the record,  Mr. Trump and his associates (some who at one time had NO security clearances, hi Jared) have been using unsecured emails, computers and cell phones since day one of his Presidency.  This was all verified by President Trump himself.  So before you go back to Mrs. Clinton and her fictitious crimes against humanity.  Let’s focus on the crimes of the CURRENT administration.  The list gets longer and longer by the day.

Mr. Barr should receive a subpoena to testify in front of the House and if he refuses to show up then arrest him.  Being AG doesn’t put him above the Law.  Being President doesn’t put Mr. Trump above the Law either.  It’s time to bring justice back to the Justice Department before we do turn into a Fascist State.

Weekend Adventures – The Mercer Museum

We had a fun weekend with a trip to Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA.

This amazing building is home to one man’s vision.  It hosts an array of collections of Trades gone-by.  Tanning, cobbler, transportation and so many others.  To think of the tools on display being the “modern miracles” of the tradesman is astounding.

With every level of this amazing facility there is more and more to learn.  There are also oddities to make you smile and also to horrify you.  There is an actual hangman’s gallows on the top floor.  It’s a must see if you are passing through the Doylestown area 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Saturday was St. Patrick’s Day and as a good American-Irish woman I went out for Mexican Food.  Nothing was boiled, lol.

I started with a Veggie Fajita Platter.  See the Green…there was my tribute to St. Paddy!  Broccoli, guacamole and spinach.  Boom!

Of course I got the Mexican Fried Ice Cream!!!  It’s was really only to complete the whole Mexican Food experience!

We were going to craft fairs in the area and there was one at the Historic Moland House.

It was a great afternoon.  The sky was blue and the sun was shining!

I even got some cashew brittle.  Was a great day to be out and about!

Happy President’s Day – A Diatribe

UPDATED:  How a day changes things.

Yesterday this happened:

“James Buchanan, who was at the helm as the United States careened into civil war, was dislodged from his position as our nation’s worst president by our current president, Trump.” I guess I was wrong.

I remember when Trump was running for President.  Mostly I remember saying if he got elected he would have to really do a lot to be a worse President than James Buchanan.  Well, he’s been President for over a year and well James Buchanan is looking pretty dang good.

Under Mr. Trump and his band of misfit toys (cabinet members/staff/Lacking of Proper Security Clearances) he’s taken America back to the 1940/50’s when Racism was outwardly tolerated.  A time when women had few rights when married (especially in the south).  When people were murdered (lynched) and it was deemed socially okay.  Churches/Synagogues burning (African-American/Jewish) were sanctioned and white men in power thought themselves untouchable.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence would have us all believe those were the good old’ days.  This is how I see America right now.  Our President reaps personal financial windfalls from his position.  Trump harped on his predecessor playing Golf and he would have not time as President to do the same.  Yet, he’s played more golf than any previous President in the same time period or over a tenure in office.  Not only that, he plays golf at his own establishments that cost the American Tax Payers approximately $100 million for 1 year of golf.

Mr. Pence wraps himself in his form of Christianity.  Evangelicals have given Mr. Trump a sanctioned pass.  Even though he is a known philanderer, liar, cheat and scoundrel he invokes Jesus and God with his “God Bless America” and they give him a pass.  I’m fairly certain no matter what form of Christianity you follow…that’s not a real thing.  Mr. Pence hates women in power.  He has told everyone how he can’t be in the presence of women when his wife isn’t around.  He’s afraid of being tempted I guess.  This is revealing in his lack of faith in Jesus that he will make the right choices.  It also shows his lack of self-control in all other matters in his life.  Is this really a person who should be Vice-President or even President?

The Republican Party is ridiculous any more.  The days of the calls for fiscal responsibility are gone.  They have been replaced with the days of Class Warfare.  The age where poor people are poor because they want to be and not because the deck is stacked against them.  The days where the wealthy are rewarded for their lack of paying any tax let alone their fair share.  We are back to the days of medical bankruptcy because Trump’s grand plan of destroying anything Obamaish is all that matters to him.  Instead of fixing and improving Obamacare we now live in the world of Trumpcare where only the wealthy can afford medical treatment.  Where pharmaceutical companies hold our health hostage because we can’t afford the medicines we need to be healthy.  Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell would rather all of the poor folks just die off so it makes America Greater for people like them.

The Republican Party of today would also have you believe that all of the millions and millions of dollars taken from Gun Lobbies like the NRA isn’t blood money.  Thoughts and Prayers for all of the people killed by AR-15 Assault Rifles and other various guns.  It’s not the guns…it’s the people.  No…it’s the people who should never have military grade assault weapons.  That’s not even a Second Amendment issue.  It’s a common sense issue.  Ordinary citizens will never need an AR-15.  It’s a death weapon and nothing more.

Our Country is in the throes of being not relevant on the world’s stage.  Our President watches more TV than I do and tweets as though he is a Junior High Schooler.  He tries to bully everyone who disagrees with him.  He has no respect for anyone about anything that does not mirror his own opinion.  That opinion tends to be how great he is and if you don’t say he’s great then you suck.

Will Trump go down as the worst President in the history of the United States of America?  That is still to be determined.  It still would take a lot to be worse than James Buchanan who seemed to be okay with Civil War.  There are so many variables and so much time left in Trump’s first (or only) term as President.  Until then we deal with the fact that Trump plays a lot of golf, doesn’t start his work day until 11 am and works only until about 4 PM.  He watches endless Fox News which he deems as the only not “fake news” affiliate.  The world is a scarier place under Mr. Trump and his Republican band of misfits.

Happy President’s Day…I guess.

2017 Summer Vacation – The Crest

When I was a child I went to the Jersey Shore with my family.  We had a lot of fun but I always got sunburned.  As an adult, the Shore lost its appeal.  Sunburn kind of turned my taste to the beach sour.

Then I married a woman who LOVES the Shore.  She introduced me to this area of the Jersey Shore called Wildwood Crest.  It was congested like Ocean City or Wildwood.  I loved it right away.  She bought me “magic shoes” for my feet so I could splash around in the waves without freaking out something touched me.

It’s a beautiful place.  It has so much more to offer than just the ocean and beach.

The people are friendly, the nature is exquisite and the town is quiet.

There is also history in this little town.  Some of it incredibly sad.

Some of it part of the building of our Country.

I love this place.  It makes me happy to go here every year.  That is a great thing.

A Movie Under The Stars

Last night I crossed off one of our summer bucket list items, outdoor Movie night.

Our Community hosts free outdoor movies at various locations around town.  Local businesses sponsor these movie nights.  Last night it was hosted at Historical Hope Lodge.  A beautiful location for sure!  We waited for dark to get the movie going and it was really cool with the Mansion sitting in the background.  Popcorn and movie…how can you go wrong.

Dark came quickly now that we are racing toward Autumn.  And the 100+ folks who gathered on the lawn applauded the start and finish of our movie.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is/was a classic.  All though Amy Farrah Fowler messed with our minds stating that regardless of what Indiana Jones did the end would have been the same and he didn’t even need to be there I still loved this picture!  Getting to watch it with my love made it even more fun!
