      Yes, let's face it America is engulfed in a frenzy of angst. It is time the label of what is going on in Washington D.C. and all over the country what it is... terrorism.

      Forget for now the autocratic path that we are steadily making waves in, or the fascist regimes imagined. This is just at the moment plain and simple terrorism. We are being bullied by those who mistakenly are taking kindness for weakness, we are being assaulted by our most ill informed and backward minded populace. We all know that theirs is but a small percentage, the cashews in a cheap mixed bag of nuts. Yet we allow ourselves to be engulfed by that miniscule percentage. We are better than that, this is not who we are, but we are becoming those things that we hate the most by thinking we are doing something about it.

      In a conversation I had last week with a very wise old man who hasn't touched a drop in over 35 years. He said it took him a while to understand the dynamic happening to the country right now. He had a hook on it though, just like the addicts and alcoholics the guy had worked with for all these years, America is acting the same way. The reasonings, the angst, the fears and insecurities. The expectations that they have were all linked to that of an addict. It was all right there plain as day really, it was in my own antics about the Russian angles that prompted him to say something. At 87 he is a kick in the pants still and looked at me and said something very similar to what I had heard while growing up. "What? are the bullies picking on you? ohhh poo poo." Then he reminded me about bullies and why they are that way, insecure and afraid of everything. "Did you ever take care of a bully by fighting him?" "Well, no I said, he was kicked out of school and kind of went away." "That's all the Russian interference has done, made you look at all our uglies and start fighting each other, then keep it going and what do you have? Other people fighting the bully while you get your homework done."

      Terrorism, both from one area or another is going to continue and even skyrocket I sadly believe. The freedom and self-righteousness being pumped into our most malleable minds is going to reach a head. The terrorism from the right wing of this great land will continue because of misleading facts and just plain lies. To let this continue at this point is a slippery slope even more so than once imagined. With the Idiot forming a War Room to fight off... well you! How the heck is that even supposed to be legal, when does the President starts a War with the population of the country? When he want to take clear control over it. Complicit Media and other players in politics and business will suffer in the end. This kindness for weakness bit has a bite that they have seemingly forgotten. More powerful than anything they can conceive, you don't want to pit the Peanuts against the Cashews in this bag of nuts.

      When we are electing people assaulting the press literally and figuratively, then what are we to think? When the attacks are coming from lone individuals and small groups, what are we to think? When it is condoned by those in power, I know what to think. If those on the right believe they are going in the right direction, think again. The mouse that roared is about to make the Elephant shit his drawers.

          This speaks volumes as 45 attempt to represent America along side more brilliant minds.

          "Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn't read. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees."

          "He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media's tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world."

          Betsy DeVos: If States Discriminate Against LGBTQ Students, It's Cool By Me

              I'm sorry, but it is just not right to discriminate against anybody in this country, no matter who they are or what religion they follow or do not follow or their sexual orientation. People are people, period! We all feel love, hate, pain, joy, depression and when we bleed, our blood is red red RED just like everybody else's. This DeVos "woman" is living in her own reality show. She has absolutely no business being Education Secretary. She is the one who needs to be educated in basic human decency!

              _____________________________________________________________________

              'Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said Wednesday that states should have the flexibility to decide whether schools can discriminate against LGBTQ students ― even if those schools get federal money.

              'During a testy exchange in a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing, Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) told DeVos about Lighthouse Christian Academy, a private school in Indiana that receives state voucher money but denies admission to students from families where there is “homosexual or bisexual activity” or someone “practicing alternate gender identity.” Clark asked DeVos, whose budget seeks a $250 million increase for projects that include vouchers for private schools, if she would step in if that Indiana school applied for such federal funding.

              'DeVos replied by saying she supports giving flexibility to states.

              '“For states who have programs that allow for parents to make choices, they set up the rules around that,” she said.


              You would put the state flexibility over our students? Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.)

              'Clark, who appeared baffled, pressed DeVos on whether she could see any situation in which she would overrule a school requesting federal voucher money ― if the school discriminated against students based on sexual orientation, race or special needs, for example.

              '“The Office of Civil Rights and our Title IX protections are broadly applicable across the board,” DeVos said. “But when it comes to parents making choices on behalf of their students….”

              '“This isn’t about parents making choices. This is about use of federal dollars,” Clark interrupted. “You would put the state flexibility over our students?”

              '“I think a hypothetical―” DeVos said.

              '“It’s not a hypothetical,” Clark snapped. “It’s a real school.”'

                  You just can’t make this crap up, what in the world were they thinking requesting a secure communication with the Kremlin?

                  It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Trump isn’t asking if he can’t have AF1 fly around the world and land any place but Andrews AFB.

                  There is a virtual buzz saw waiting for him back here in the good ole USA. His big wonderful, beautiful Health Care replacement is slowly suffocating in the Senate. The joke he calls a budget is DOA according to both McCain and McConnell.

                  Ryan is more than likely to push back hard on his joke of a tax reform. Now this latest article in the WaPo, about his consigliere Jared, being the person of interest the FBI whom the FBI wish to have shall we say a friendly conversation. I think we all know conversations with the FBI are not of the friendly kind.

                  It has been said before, but I believe it is worth repeating. If someone wrote this all up as a script for a TV show, those who can greenlight a show would reject it out of hand as improbable.

                  And yet here we are with the improbable, the reality that we all are now living.

                  Alabama Tweaks White Supremacist Law To Potentially Restore Voting Rights To Thousands

                      'Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed a law this week to clarify language in the state constitution that many say worked to systematically prevent African-Americans from voting.

                      'During a 1901 constitutional convention openly called to establish white supremacy in the state, the Alabama constitution was amended to disenfranchise anyone who had committed a misdemeanor of “moral turpitude.” The Supreme Court found the language unconstitutional in 1985. But lawmakers altered the language slightly ― making it apply only to felonies ― and reinserted it into the constitution in the 1990s.

                      'And because there wasn’t a set definition of which felonies constituted a crime of moral turpitude, local election officials had broad authority to deny people the right to vote.

                      'People who have been convicted of such crimes could vote if they paid fines and fees ― something that effectively constitutes a poll tax. Some 250,000 people were disenfranchised because of the law, including about 15 percent of the state’s African-American voting population and less than 5 percent of its white population.

                      'The law Ivey signed this week defines fewer than 50 crimes ― offenses including murder, kidnapping and rape ― that constitute a felony of “moral turpitude.”

                      '“Up until the passage of this bill, there was absolutely no definition of who had the right to vote and who didn’t,” said Danielle Lang, a lawyer with the Campaign Legal Center, which brought a lawsuit against Alabama last year over the moral turpitude law.

                      '“The result of that, I think, is that by and large almost everyone was deterred from applying to vote because you were asked to sign under penalty of perjury that you had not been convicted of a disqualifying felony,” she said. “Well, there was no way to know if your felony was disqualifying or not.”'

                      After Shaming Pregnant Senior For Months, Christian High School Says She Can't Walk At Graduation

                          "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone". Gee, I really can't remember who said that. It couldn't have been JC, right?

                          ___________________________________________________________________

                          'A Maryland Christian school has barred an 18-year-old senior from walking in next month’s graduation ceremonies because she is pregnant.

                          'Maddi Runkles, who is a straight-A student, said she became pregnant five months ago. She said she expected some punishment, but also support from officials at the nondenominational Heritage Academy, in Hagerstown.

                          '“This has been more shame than punishment,” Runkles told HuffPost.

                          'Runkles said in January, when she and her parents notified the school about her pregnancy, she was immediately dismissed. When her parents appealed the decision, they were told she could come back, but would have to continue her studies at home after spring break. A second appeal from the family resulted in the school’s final decision: removing her from all leadership positions (she was student council president and vice president of the glee club) and banning her from walking at her graduation ceremony.

                          'Heritage Academy’s strict policies require students to sign a pledge in which they agree to protect their bodies by “abstaining from sexual immorality and from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs,” according to the school’s website.

                          'David Hobbs, administrator at Heritage Academy, addressed recent criticism in a statement released earlier this week. According to Hobbs, Runkles was punished “not because she’s pregnant, but because she was immoral.”

                          '“Her immorality is the original choice she made that began this situation,” Hobbs wrote.

                          'Runkles counters that her punishment is much more severe than what’s been doled out to others who have broken the pledge.

                          '“Sexual morality is not just limited to premarital sex,” she said. “There’s many different forms of it and there have been other kids committing forms of sexual immorality and they have never been treated this harshly.”'

                              Will Ivanka stand back while the father of her children possibly take the fall for her father? How tight is the family dynamic as it pertains to blood? We will soon see.


                              "Investigators are focusing on a series of meetings held by Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and an influential White House adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters, according to people familiar with the investigation."

                              "Kushner, who held meetings in December with the Russian ambassador and a banker from Moscow , is being investigated because of the extent and nature of his interactions with the Russians, the people said."

                                  Given the CBO report, the GOP can now proudly state that they can participate in the earlier termination of the lives of a projected 23 million people by 2020, not nearly as bad as the 24 million originally quoted.

                                  Sorry, Paul Ryan, you are going to have to try harder to kill off the uneducated Trump voter. We know you must be sorely disappointed by the new evaluation. Though we do appreciate your efforts to destroy the Republican Party. Perhaps you can find additional ways to destroy the lives of your constituents in a more practical manner - like ripping away the protections offered by the EPA that has required the removal of environmental hazards in places like West Virginia where your GOP supporters are suffering illnesses at a rate similar to the mining communities in China and South America. Now we know how much you appreciate the flattering comparisons to Communist and Despotic governments, and that you are doing your level best to elevate your President to operate at the same level of effectiveness as Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela. At the current rate your GOP Sheep will be starved before their health insurance runs out, resolving that pesky problem of feeding and housing the wastes of human life that the Mercer-owned White House despises. I would suggest that the GOP offer to federally fund funeral expenses in order to encourage the hastened demise of the constituents that are such a drain on American society.

                                  One thought, though: If the plans move forward to build the wall on order to keep out the unwashed Mexicans, Guatemalans and the like, you will need to bring all the gravediggers under Federal Employment. Though the CBO did estimate a 1.8 million jobs will be lost as a result of the ACHA, so there will be a fair number of doctors and nurses seeking employment.

                                      Republican businessman Greg Gianforte has won Montana’s sole House district in a special election Thursday, keeping a seat in Republican hands despite facing assault charges for allegedly attacking a reporter who’d asked him about the GOP’s health-care bill.

                                      In his victory speech, Gianforte admitted to the attack and apologized for it.

                                      “I shouldn’t have treated that reporter that way,” he told supporters at his rally here.

                                      The victory, called by the Associated Press, offered some relief for Republicans, who have struggled to sell their Obamacare overhaul, the American Health Care Act. But it was a closer call than the party had expected when it tapped the multimillionaire to run in a state President Trump carried by 20 points — and when Democrats nominated folk singer Rob Quist instead of an experienced politician. With 83 percent of the vote counted, Gianforte led Quist 51 percent to 44 percent, according to preliminary returns.

                                      Some in the crowd laughed at the mention of the incident. “I made a mistake,” said Gianforte.

                                      “Not in our minds!” yelled a supporter.

                                      Democrats, who called on Gianforte to quit the race after the assault charge, believed that late votes broke Quist’s way, and that the first-time candidate put the race in play by attacking the AHCA. Forcing Republicans to spend seven figures defending a typically safe seat, they argued, was worth it.
