Great quote... Freudian slip
 "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
George W. Bush

Now they’re in Taiwan, which unfortunately is a perfect place for them.

You bought it

by Robert Reich.
1. He called Hillary Clinton a crook.
You bought it.
Then he paid $25 million to settle a fraud lawsuit.
2. He said he’d release his tax returns, eventually.
You bought it.
He hasn’t, and says he never will.
3. He said he’d divest himself from his financial empire, to avoid any conflicts of interest.
You bought it.
He is still heavily involved in his businesses, manipulates the stock market on a daily basis, and has more conflicts of interest than can even be counted.
4. He said Clinton was in the pockets of Goldman Sachs, and would do whatever they said.
You bought it.
He then proceeded to put half a dozen Goldman Sachs executives in positions of power in his administration.
5. He said he’d surround himself with all the best and smartest people.
You bought it.
He nominated theocratic loon Mike Pence for Vice President. A white supremacist named Steve Bannon is his most trusted confidant. Dr. Ben Carson, the world’s greatest idiot savant brain surgeon, is in charge of HUD. Russian quisling Rex Tillerson is Secretary of State.
6. He said he’d be his own man, beholden to no one.
You bought it.
He then appointed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, whose only “qualifications” were the massive amounts of cash she donated to his campaign.
7. He said he would “drain the swamp” of Washington insiders.
You bought it.
He then admitted that was just a corny slogan he said to fire up the rubes during the rallies, and that he didn’t mean it.
8. He said he knew more about strategy and terrorism than the Generals did.
You bought it.
He promptly gave the green light to a disastrous raid in Yemen- even though all his Generals said it would be a terrible idea. This raid resulted in the deaths of a Navy SEAL, an 8-year old American girl, and numerous civilians. The actual target of the raid escaped, and no useful intel was gained.
9. He said Hillary Clinton couldn’t be counted on in times of crisis.
You bought it.
He didn’t even bother overseeing that raid in Yemen; and instead spent the time hate-tweeting the New York Times, and sleeping.
10. He called CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times “fake news” and said they were his enemy.
You bought it.
He now gets all his information from Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and InfoWars.
11. He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done.
You bought it.
He took his first vacation after 11 days in office.
On the taxpayer’s dime.
And went golfing.
And that’s just the first month.

How much more of this crap do we have to wade through? President Trump says something totally off the wall, the rest of the world wonders what he's been smoking, and the President says it's not his fault. Not his fault! A vital duty of the President is to be better informed than anyone else!

A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. -Fyodor Dostoevsky, novelist (1821-1881)

As much as I disagree with Senator McCain's politics, I have vast respect for him. I couldn't have done it!

Senator Elizabeth Warren has been rebuked by Republicans. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) said, “Senator Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
What he means is, women should learn to hold their tongues.

The White House has complained that the press doesn’t cover his other executive orders. Okay, let Seth Meyers take a look.

The Viet Cong were lucky that Trump had a tragic foot thing that kept him from serving in the military, because he is, in his words, really good at the military. Which foot was it in, it’s hard to say, but if not the left one, then it must have been the right thing.

Mohamed Bzeek is a Muslim immigrant who lives in Los Angeles. He comes from Libya, one of the countries placed on Trump’s immigration ban. He works as a foster father, and about ten children under his care have died.

In class today, to see if the students knew the word glutton, I asked, "What do you call someone who eats way too much? Say someone eats six hamburgers all at once, what do you call a person like that?"
Student: "American."
Me: "Ouch!"
