Stay Away From My Damn Coffee!

Good Day World!

As I sip my morning brew, I have a message for the Council for Education and Research on Toxics:

Lay off the attacks on my Java you clueless morons! 

A preliminary decision from a California superior court judge in Los Angeles ruled against companies like Starbucks who argued that coffee is a healthy drink.

Purveyors of coffee were told they might have to put up a warning that tells their customers there is a possible cancer link to their morning jolt of Java.

Companies have until April 10 to file objections against the ruling.

For the record, the Council for Education and Research on Toxics filed this lawsuit in 2010. 

No decision has been made yet, but this latest review by a California Supreme Court Judge said the defendants don't have enough proof to avoid putting up warnings about coffee.

Bullshit!

Coffee has been shown, over and over again, to be a healthy beverage. All this lawsuit does is make a mockery of Prop 65, confuse customers, and does nothing to improve public health.

Coffee has been much studied over the years, and research has shown that it provides several health benefits, including lowering your risk of early death.

It may reduce your risk of heart disease, multiple sclerosis, Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's and even some cancers like melanoma and prostate cancer.

It seems there's a trend with food and beverage products where they undergo attacks every few years or so, and are later found to be safe.

It's happened with other products, and will continue to happen when you have morons with selective agendas and the money to file frivolous lawsuits.

Trump Unleashed: Who Needs a Chief-Of-Staff?

Good Day World!

Fair warning...Donny is looking at getting rid of his chief babysitter, John Kelley, so he can go totally rogue!

Kelly's influence with The Donald has been waning lately.

Witness the fact that just about anyone can come into the Oval Office and chat it up with our Liar-In-Chief now.

When Kelley was first appointed he stopped that revolving door and tried to tighten up the West Wing. His efforts have proved useless.

Someone floated the idea to Trump that he didn't need a chief of staff. His little brain has been working on that thought since.

Since Hope Hicks left, Trump has indicated Kellanne Conway would take her placed in the interim. Trump likes her "alternate realities," as they apply to him.

The bottom line; Trump doesn't like being told anything. Especially facts, when they conflict with his rhetoric.

You think the man-child in the Oval Office has been outrageous so far?

Wait until Donny shakes off the last of his restraints, gets rid of Kelly, and appoints the head of his fan club to take his place!

Trump unleashed is a terrifying thought.

Trump's Biggest Nemesis: The US Constitution

Good Day World!

Thank goodness for laws that protect Americans from morons like Trump.

The courts have withstood Trump's third illegal attempt to denigrate and discriminate against Muslims.

The appeals court held that immigrant rights groups represented by the ACLU and the National Immigration Law Center "will likely succeed on the merits of their Establishment Clause claim."

The courts are also protecting the Dreamers from being ejected from the country by Trump, but their status is still up in the air. 

Trump's made it clear that without getting his way one-hundred percent on his stupid Wall, he's ready to deport upwards of 800,000 people.

After signing a budget that didn't give him all the money he wanted for the Wall, Trump floated the idea of reinstating the line-item veto, a practice ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 1998.

Trump has no respect for the way the Federal Government operates and the balance of power between the Legislative and Executive Branches such as the one the line-item veto represents.

As long as people continue to defend, and uphold, the Constitution, idiots like Trump won't be able to destroy our democracy.

One of my biggest concerns is the judges Trump has been appointing. They all lean so far right they can't walk upright. That fact that Trump got to appoint a conservative Supreme Court Justice is unsettling.

He may even get another opportunity to appoint a conservative devotee, if one of the current judges retires, or dies from old age. Now, that's scary!

Meanwhile, as long as our laws stay intact, Trump won't be able to achieve his dream of being a dictator, like his buddy in Russia.

Memo to Democrats: Don't Count Your Chickens Before They're Hatched

Good Day World!

There's an old saying, "Don't count your chickens before they're hatched."

This thought was first recorded in print by Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets, in 1570.

This simple statement is infused with wisdom.

I'm calling Democrats out today, who think it's going to be a slam dunk when it comes to retaking The House in November. That it's a done deal.

Here's a friendly reminder...no one thought Trump would win. If the Democratic party didn't learn it's lesson that time, then they're in trouble.

Yeah, it looks good according to all the political pundits who are predicting a Blue Avalanche in the mid-term elections.

The fact that a lot of long-time Republicans are leaving Congress makes it easier for the Democrats who don't have to run against those incumbents.

All of these good signs mean nothing on election day when the voters turn out. Upsets happen. Polls are forever suspect after the 2016 election.

If the Democrats get out a strong ground game, and it's looking that way based on some earlier primaries, they should be able to retake The House.

Hopefully, overconfidence won't be the Democrats Waterloo again.

Degrees Of Outrage In America


                                     Good Day World!

How much can the average American take before they explode in outrage?

What is your breaking point?

The fact that the president of the United States is a known liar? 

That our government is in chaos with unqualified people coming and going from the West Wing?

That we could be on the verge of war with Trump's appointment of attack dog John Bolton?

You get the idea.

We're living in a time where the president of the United States is denying he had sex with a porn star shortly after his current wife had their son.

Yet, Trump tried to shut her up with money days before the 2016 election.

Now a lawyer for Trump claims he gave Stormy Daniels, a porn star, $130,000 out of the goodness of his own heart for no reason.

That lawyer, Michael Cohen is being sued for defamation in the latest development of this soap opera.

I've lost track of what outrages me the most. Trying to endure the Trump presidency is like getting shock treatments when you least expect it!

The President and the Porn Star: Act Two


                                     Good Day World!

After watching the 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels last night, I'm convinced this whole affair is going to be a three-act play.

Act One was the kickoff: Daniels lawyer tells media his client's story. It brews for a week and then explodes on 60 Minutes (which drew record ratings).

Act Two: It's getting serious now.

A  lawyer for President Trump's personal counsel Michael Cohen is demanding that adult film actress Stormy Daniels and her lawyer retract "false and defamatory" statements after 60 Minutes aired last night.

Stormy's lawyer Michel Avenatti, told CNN this morning that he's ignoring the letter and that he's going forward with the case. He feels that his client has enough evidence to prove her relationship with Trump, and to make a case in court against the liar-in-chief.

This playful banter will go back and forth until it hits the courts. Trump's minions are doing their best to bully Daniels right now.

According to Daniels, the bullying started years ago when a strange man came up to her and warned her to leave Trump alone!

It's unclear how long this second act will go on. 

The third act, of course, will be the trial and the results.

Trump Appoints Warmonger and Damn Sneak To National Security Advisor

Good Day World!

The last thing Trump needs is someone as willing as him to start a war.

So he appointed another draft-dodger whose known as a military hawk in Washington D.C. circles, and believes we need to do a preemptive strike against North Korea...soon.

John Bolton is a warmonger and he's a damn sneak. 

It was Bolton's Super Pac that collaborated with Cambridge Analytica, and paid them for "research," on American voters.

Enforcement officers from the UK's Information Commissioner's Office raided Cambridge Analytica's London offices, Saturday.

The political consultancy company is accused of manipulating Facebook data during the 2016 US election, according to a report from an ICO spokesman.

Cambridge Analytica was funded in part by Robert Mercer who was a pivotal supporter of Trump, donating millions to the campaign.

A separate data team from Cambridge Analytica also assisted by Bolton's Super PAC, pushed for Trump’s election, Make America Number 1.

Brad Parscale was the digital director of Trump's campaign, but Bolton's contributions can't be overlooked. The possibility of criminality being exposed is good.

What else can't be overlooked is that Bolton is being empowered by our wannabe dictator, who has been feeling pretty hawkish himself lately.
