This State Of Emergency

      State of Emergency? Apparently we've been in states of emergency since the Embassy in Iran got occupied, the Seventies.

      But this one is a separation of powers issue. Congress and the purse strings vs the Executive's reach.

      We're in a state of endless wars against terrorists, designated bad actors, dictators, and this one would be to impress on the public that the real power is with the Executive.

      Should be informative how this plays out.

      Congress could pass a budget, override the President's veto, but will they? Is Congress an empty suit? The political class should know that if they don't force Trump to compromise this tactic will be used forevermore.

          Seriously?
          PARACHUTE CLUB
          Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me, again, asking why I didn't do something useful with my time, "like sitting around the pool and drinking wine isn't a good thing."

          Talking about my "doing-something-useful" seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.

          She is "only thinking of me," she said, and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the fellas.

          So, I did and when I got home, I decided to play a prank on her. I sent her an e-mail saying that I had joined the Senior Parachute Club.

          She replied, "Are you nuts? You're 76 years-old and now you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"

          I told her that I even had a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.

          Immediately, she telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Dad, where are your glasses?! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

          "Oh man, am I in trouble," I said, "I signed up for five jumps a week!" The line went dead.

          Life as a Senior Citizen isn't getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.

              January 7, 2019

              WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an unexpected breakthrough that could end the government shutdown, President Donald Trump has backed down from his demand for a wall and offered instead to post Vice-President Mike Pence at the border with big binoculars.

              According to the White House, Pence’s mission at the border will alternate between keeping an eye out for potential intruders and glaring menacingly into the distance.

              At a press conference announcing the development, Pence appeared to embrace his new role as the nation’s first line of defense against illegal immigration.

              “If anyone wants to sneak into the United States, why, lordy, they’ll have to get past Mike Pence first,” he said.

              The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, denied that stationing Pence at the border represented a concession on Trump’s part and claimed that the Vice-President was “just as good as a wall.”

              “If anyone can take the place of an inanimate object, it’s Mike Pence,” she said.

              Andy Borowitz is the New York Times best-selling author of “The 50 Funniest American Writers,” and a comedian who has written for The New Yorker since 1998. He writes the Borowitz Report, a satirical column on the news, for newyorker.com.

                      The following is “just a thought” that FOX Entertainment has offered the American public.

                      Seems FOX journalists think’s it's good for the government to be shutdown to a cost of $$$ billions, and also hardship for many Americans. . . because it is good for Trump! It keeps the Russia investigation out of the news!



                      Monday marked the 16th day of a government shutdown that has left 800,000 federal employees without pay.

                      The president is scheduled to travel to the Southwest border Thursday. On Tuesday, he wants network air time to make his case for a wall directly to the American people.

                      But a Fox News host suggested that President Donald Trump is hardly eager to resolve the crisis, noting that focusing attention on the wall is beneficial to the administration.

                      “The shutdown is good for Trump. It keeps his base engaged. It keeps the news off of other things that are bad for him. When this is the story, Mueller is not the story,” Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewart said.

                      The shutdown “is the kind of chaos Trump likes” because it helps him control the news cycle, Stirewart added.

                          The supposition is that Trump, when ruminating around in his grey matter, came up with the fact that the people at his rallies felt deeply, that they were losing something, their grip on the country, their subtle sense of entitlement that to them made them them, and threatened their rightful place in the sun, The other.

                          Trump's logic has taken him to his place in the sun, and the faithful, with him, as they , together, confront a phantom, that phantom, their rightful place being usurped by this abstract threat, The other.

                          That we are all the same, that there is no other, has no place in the narrative of threat and an imagined symbol of safety and renewal, Trump's wall.
