Memo To Trump: It's Easy To Go Over and Under a Wall

Good Day World!

It occurred to me while sipping my morning cup of coffee that Trump may not be aware that it's possible to go over, or under a wall.

If you happened to see Trump's visit to the border recently you may have noticed a female border patrol officer showing Trump videos of tunnels that had recently been discovered under a nearby border wall.

Trump just sat there, almost in a catatonic state and stared. There was no sign that he even saw what was she was showing him.

It was one of those moments when your realized he was living in an alternate universe and that the border patrol agent was wasting her time.

Since that photo op, two tunnels have been discovered. One of them allowed nearly 400 immigrants to get to the other side - where they patiently waited for border patrol agents to arrive and process them. 

By the way, there were only three agents in that 30-mile stretch. It's obvious we need more agents, not a 13th century wall that didn't stop the Mongols from invading China.

Another very effective way around a wall is the use of catapults. Check this video out and this one.

It's pretty easy to get drugs over a wall. I don't care how high it is. Just the fact that a wall can be rendered useless by two basic methods - over and under - should make any sane person pause when Trump claims we need a wall.

Color Me Perplexed: News Events That Leave Everyone Confused

Good Day World!

Puff...puff...chug, chug...Oh, your here!

Sorry about the delay. 

I needed a couple of quick puffs instead of my usual slow-acting cannabis infused coffee so I could really focus on some of the new stories that are about as clear as mud to readers and viewers.

Let's take a shot at trying to clear the waters.

Here's what's happening: Trump has shut our government down and 800,000 federal workers have been furloughed with no pay. 

When GoFundMe pages popped up to help the workers families...the government stepped in and said, "Hell, No!

Yesterday our pathetic excuse for a president spoke to members of the Pentagon. He was supposed (key words) to be there to discuss a new missal defense system we've installed in some areas (like Alaska), and our further commitment to stopping foreign powers from hitting America with nukes.

He did spend a few minutes on the subject but then turned it into a partisan rant about the need for a southern border wall and how bad the Democrats are because they could care less about the America peoples safety.

My confusion comes from the fact that lately, every time Trump trots out and appears somewhere (Farmer Convention in New Orleans last week) he goes off subject and uses the event to stump for his vanity wall.

He dreams about an image of himself standing before a giant wall while his supporters cheer him on endlessly. My question is when is this tactic going to get old?

It sure didn't work during the midterms. Trump has become a one-note tyrant.

As for the Mueller investigation: Trump's allies constantly shifting stories about the 2016 election campaign has left the majority of the country confused, angry, and suspicious.

Most recent example: Rudy Giuliani contradicts 18 months of "No Collusion" claims. So what are American's supposed to think?

With Trump declaring the mainstream press "an enemy of the people" he has infused even more confusion among people trying to really understand what's happening in our country.

When you see Mike Pence declaring ISIS has been defeated and it's time to go home (despite hearing about the death of American servicemen in an attack in Syria that same day), it's apparent there's a real disconnect between reality and the illusions Trump and his minions are spinning.

Time for me to walk down the road...

Trump's Trickle-Down Effect Goes Beyond Economics

Good Day World!

This morning I'm sharing a few thoughts about trickle-down economics and trickle-down politics.

The idea that giving massive tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy benefiting the rest of America is pure bullshit. Republicans since Ronald Reagan have tried to fool the common American with Voodoo Economics.

With that said, let's move into a more sinister example of trickle-down politics under Trump.

Our liar in chief, whose xenophobia is the real reason he has a hardcore following, has taken the whole idea of a trickle-down effect to new heights of depravity. His views against people of any color have been on display since his first day in office.

His trickle-down racism, distortion of facts, and lack of morals and ethics has spread like an infection in this country - a grim example of Trumpian trickle-down politics challenging every law in the land, and our prized Constitution.

It's important to remember that Trump is not a Republican.

He's a wannabe dictator who has managed to get his hateful messages amplified with the bully pulpit of the presidency, and a propaganda arm that extends from Fox News to Breitbart.

The good news - and yes, there is good news on the horizon - is the majority of Americans have had enough of Trump's trickle-down effects - both politically and economically. 

Stay tuned, as the numerous investigations into Trump's corruption and cooperation with the Russians during the 2016 election, are revealed by the now majority Democratic House.

"Hi! I'm Dave, and I'm Addicted To The Trump Government Reality Show

Good Day World!

As I slurped my way through my first cup of coffee this morning it occurred to me that I was watching way too many Trump government reality shows lately.

It's scary. I can't stand the orange anus, but damn! He still puts on a good show, as do his minions daily.

Take the confirmation hearings for Trump appointees.

Who get forget the high anxiety of the Kavanaugh hearings? Talk about all the elements for entertainment. If it got any more salacious the proceedings would have had to be X-Rated and run on cable news.

Talk about X-Rated! How about Trump and the Porn Star and Playmate after hours series? Stormy notes Donny's little hands and... 

How about that drama at the southern border last midterms?

Trump and minions played with our military personnel like pawns in his political game, declaring a crisis approaching - which by the way was a rag tag collection of fleeing immigrants banded together for safety.

There's so many juicy tidbits about Trump and his corrupt staff of puppets that it's running as a miniseries (The House of Trump) on CNN. 

Early viewers got to watch Trump's original cabinet get eviscerated, humiliated, and tossed aside like trash. Those early episodes were great entertainment, but now there's only a half-temporary staff tip-toeing through the White House and taking turns changing Trump's diapers after his temper tantrums.

The daily reality show since his election has featured fans flocking to Fox News for a daily dose of lies and Trump ass-kissing segments.

Even the mainstream news is addicted to Trump's government reality show, eagerly featuring his daily tweets like they were real news. 

Please don't judge me too harshly if I'm addicted to covering Trump's downfall. There's just something about the theatre in Washington DC that defies explanation...

"Hi! I'm Dave, and I'm addicted to coffee and the current long-running reality show in the White House."

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Laugh, Laugh, I Thought I'd Never Stop, But...

Good Day World!

It all started in 2015 when I heard that Donald Trump, world-class douche bag was running for president of the United States!

I'll be honest, I thought it was a joke. So I laughed along with millions of other Americans at the mere thought. 

America chuckled at the idea of a reality star who liked firing people as the leader of the free world.

In 2016, I laughed at the idea that the Orange Anus thought he could beat out 19 other Republicans to be the party candidate for the Oval Office. So did many political pundits.

I stopped laughing in January 2017 at about the same time the majority of Americans stopped. A con man for the ages, with the help of the Russian government and other foreign powers, had stolen the election.

A dark pall settled over the majority of Americans whose votes were invalidated by the Electoral College. The popular candidate lost as a result of a fixed election. The nation was stunned.

In 2018, more and more Americans starting seeing through Trump's lies, as news organizations kept a daily count. Everyone knew that special counsel Bob Mueller's investigation into the Trump team and Russia conspiracy was a Pandora's Box that would keep on giving.

There wasn't a lot to laugh about last year. The clown squatting in the White House did everything he could to sully America's international ties, attacking everything from the UN to NATO. His tariffs struck like a knife in the heartland of America and farmers are feeling the results now.

Laughter turned to tears last year as immigrant families were separated from their children at the southern border. In the last month, two children have died in tent cities on the border. With proper care, it wouldn't have happened. 

Baby Boy Trump's temper tantrums have resulted in trying to create a crisis on the border during the midterms (which backfired spectacularly with the Democrats retaking the House) claiming caravans with terrorists, rapists, and all kinds of bad people were on their way to assault our southern border.

Here we are in 2019, and Trump's shut the government down until he gets his vanity wall. He still, incorrectly calls it a crisis on the border. The only crisis there, is as we all know, is Trump's draconian treatment of the immigrants...and now 800,000 federal workers going without pay.

Things are a changing, as a song once suggested. I was able to laugh today when I saw Trump's twitter. You know, the one where he was praising Nashville, Tennessee, when in fact he was going to New Orleans for a convention!

Couldn't help myself. You know what I'm thinking? There's going to be a lot to laugh about as Trump get's taken down - step-by-step this year - until he's finally behind bars.

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Taking the New Trump Test for Citizenship in America

Good Day World!

Test Instructor: "It's good to see all of you eager would-be American citizens prepared to take your written test. 

You're all one step closer to your goal of being a contributing American.

I hope you all got the memo I sent out explaining the old test is no longer applicable under the Trump regime. Those of you who did get a study guide for the new test may have a few questions before we begin.

"Yes sir, I wonder why we no longer have to memorize the Pledge of Allegiance?"

"I see you're confused. What's your name?"

"Juan Cardoza, I'm from El Salvador."

"Listen up Juan, I'm only saying this once; it's the same Pledge of Allegiance with just a few changes in it. Like the first line...

It's similar, "I pledge allegiance to Donald Trump, and to the regime he's installed in The Once United States of America, and to the corporations who stand for Fascism, and the wealthy." 

"I have a question senor!"

"Name?"

"Estuardo  Alarcon, I'm from Guatemala. I don't see anything in the guide referring to the US Constitution. It took me a year to memorize all the laws and amendments. Why is this?

"Are you a trouble maker Estuardo?"

"No! No senor!..."

"Things change. Nothing strange about that. I hope you memorized the newly revised Law of the Land under Lord Trump."

"See senor. I haven't slept since you passed it out to applicants yesterday."

"All right people! No more questions as I pass out the test. No talking. If we even think you're cheating, you'll be escorted back to the border by an attack dog and one overworked border patrol officer. Good luck!"

Time for me to walk on down the road...

Home Alone: A Nothing Burger in the White House

Good Day World!

When the media accused Trump of causing chaos in the White House yesterday, he vehemently replied,

"Fake media! How could there be chaos when I'm the only one here in the White House?"

Okay. Nothing more needs to be added here.

Just another stellar moment with a reality star whose world is blowing up around him. He's grudgingly starting to realize playing America's leader has consequences.

One's he never thought of as he happily set about destroying our government, our place in the world community, and whatever moral authority we once had.

In his new job as POTUS truth was a requirement - something that he's done his best to avoid since Daddy gave him millions and he began calling himself a builder of walls.

As for his famous Art of the Deal skills, they were just another illusion (like the ghost writer who really wrote Trump's book).

Look no further than how the world currently sees us...sheep being led by a maniac.

The bottom line; America is waiting until Trump's temper tantrums stop long enough to get the government back open, and to stop using 800,000 federal workers as political pawns.

That's why Trump is home alone today. He refuses to compromise with Congress. 

It's also because he doesn't understand the first thing about making a deal where the mafia, Saudi Arabia, or Russia aren't involved.

To his utter surprise, the country does not want a dictator with little hands, and a little brain.

Trump has become a nothing burger that the Democrats plan on grilling in the coming days, weeks, and months. Looks like his crimes are ketchupping up to him!

Time for me to walk on down the road...
