President’s Day Protests

So, a couple of days ago, a number of chumps around the country decided to protest Trump yet again, using the novel rubric “Not MY President’s Day”.  You know what?  I feel your pain.  To be precise, I felt your pain for the last 8 years, and for several years in the late ’90’s.  Between President “I won, get over it” and President “It depends on what the meaning of is is”, I can understand feeling contempt for the American Chief Executive.  So go right on ahead and keep on protesting the Donald.  Every time you trash your demonstration site, every time you set some poor working stiff’s limo on fire, you make it that much easier for President Trump and Congress to drill out the decay that you’ve planted in the American teeth.


God, what a miserable way to end a season.

This is Falcons football.  Usually not even close to the championship, but when they do get close, they manage somehow to blow it.

The 1980 NFC West champion – gives Dallas a 2-touchdown comeback victory in the playoffs at home.

The 1998 Super Bowl – lost after the starting free safety and supposed role model is arrested for soliciting a prostitute the night before facing John Elway.

2012 NFC Championship – Turf monster trips up wide-open receiver on his way to the end zone, defense allows SF comeback.

And of course tonight, setting a record for allowing a Super Bowl comeback.

And those are Falcon franchise history highlights.  Lowlights would include the collapse of Van Brocklin’s 1975 team post-strike, general ineptitude for many different seasons, Jerry Glanville’s circus act, not keeping Deion Sanders in town, Jeff George spitting on head coach June Jones, Dogkiller Vick and head coach Perino bailing before the season ends after not being able to overcome the loss of Vick.

At least the Braves managed to win one World Series.


Of course there’s no such thing as election fraud (Connecticut edition)

Democratic State Rep caught voting multiple times at multiple sites.  Old news, from 2014, but if anyone ever says to you that election fraud doesn’t occur, just point them here for one of many examples.  If they question the need for voter ID, just ask them what they have against methods proven to work in most European countries.  Or Mexico; whichever will deflate them faster.

So far, so good.

Over a week, and apparently the only Trump misstep was to include green card holders in the temporary travel ban, and that has been rectified.  If he can keep this up, he’ll be the best president since Reagan.  Especially if he keeps doing things like this.

Some of the people he has to work with, though…

Collins and Murkowski come out against DeVos.  Collins may be the best Republican you can get from Maine, but Murkowski has been primaried before, only to run and win as an independent with a Democratic endorsement.  It’s time for Alaska to elect a real Republican as opposed to a second-generation oligarchic corruptocrat.
