Trump day 246
President Trump met with the Turkish leader and gave him praise. This
leader had his security people attack peaceful demonstrators in front
of the Turkish embassy last year. Not on embassy grounds, but outside.
15 of these security men have been charged, but will likely not return
to the country for prosecution. Trump should be telling the Turkish leader
to have these people returned instead of giving him praise. But Trump
has a Trump tower in the capital of Turkey, so I doubt if he wants to
cause any trouble that might cost him some of his precious  profits.

Trumps inauguration fund ended up being $107 million in donations.
We don't know for sure how much was spent for the inauguration, but
Obamas cost less than the $25 million Trump claimed to spend, and
was bigger with many top names for entertainment. The inauguration
committee has been asked about where the extra money went. Trump
claimed they spent around $25 million, but gave no proof. Turns out
Trump can pocket the rest if he wants. To do what he wants. Remember
he offered a donation of 1 million to the Texas relief fund. Just one million,
and still had at least $75 million he could use for anything in his
inaguration fund. Wasn't that nice of him for being so generous? "NOT"

Puerto Rico is getting federal aid, but I wonder how long the GOP and
Trump will support aid to those Caribbean territories?

After 9 months the federal government finally said 21 states
were hacked by someone. 3 states said it was apparently the
Russians. The Trump campaign and his campaign manager are
still under investigation about involvement with Russia. Trump
continues to deny any involvement with Russia. Trump lies and
tries to blame others for his problems. So time will tell.

I think there are people who feel the Russian investigation
is just politics. I have a link to a webpage that lays out why
we should be concerned over what Russia did.

www.investigaterussia.org

I think if and when Trump is impeached he won't go down without
a fight, and will continue to claime he was treated unfairly by
the media, GOP, and the Democrats. Even if he stays till 2020
and looses the election he will be on fox news claiming the
election was rigged, and stolen from him.

GOP
The GOP gave up a bipartisan effort to improve the ACA to make a try
to kill it. Even trying to pay off some senators by offering their states
more money. If they have all this money, then why are they claiming
the country can't afford it? I think many of our friendly GOP have sold
them selves to rich supporters. That is probably why they ignore the
voters at home. It's a shame they don't have to wear a sign on their
back with the names of their owners.

Sure they have to beg to get money for their campaigns, but they could
reduce the costs by limiting donations to individual members running
for congress, and the amount of money spent by anyone running. Instead
they worked to allow political action committes to help support members
running. These PACKS have few limits on how much they can spend
since it's not about individuals donating for any one canidate
running for office. It's more about supporting a party platform
 than individuals.

If congress would actually work to reform campaign spending it
would allow more qualified people to run for office. Also it would
give them more time to do the job instead of raising money from
the rich crowd wanting a pay for play agreement. I think many in
congress want it to be limited to rich players. So change will
be slow to come, if ever.

Trump day 245
North Korea is claiming it will fire a nuclear armed  missile into
the Pacific ocean in the near future. Apparently to prove they have
the capability to hit the USA or it's allies.

Iran is saying they have multi warhead missiles that can fly upto 1200
miles. This threatens the entire middle east. It's likely Israel will find this
to be a serious threat.

Trump should not be making threats with his tweets. Will these tweets cause
Iran or N Korea feel Trump might start a war.

The new sanctions against N Korea could get the attention of the N Korean
leader. As a leader he needs the support of people around him. These sanctions
could cause them to rethink their support.

I am sure Trump wants a win. Something to point at when running for re election
in 2020 if he hasn't been removed from office. I just hope his desire to stay president
doesn't end up starting a war we all may regret.

GOP
Our friendly GOP is still working to kill the ACA. This is all about cutting taxes for
their rich supporters. Some who have said they wouldn't give them any money if
they don't cut taxes for them. These are billionaires who shouldn't be asking for
tax relief in the first place. They hire tax lawyers that keep their tax rates lower
than the average american as it is.

The GOP could reduce the need for so much money to run for office. Just make
that limits how much people can donate to anyone running for office.  Prior to
television people could run for office with a few thousand dollars. Now it takes
hundreds of thousands to millions. With the internet they don't need so much
TV coverage.

As with most people change is always hard, and the GOP is scared to death the
country is moving toward socializim. Well I have news for them. If people get
desperate enough they will call for social changes, and vote the GOP out.

Trump day 244
President Trump continues to have chats with various diplomats and leaders. I have
noticed Trump always talks about how great something is. He was speaking to some
African leaders about how happy they should be because of the resources they are
selling to rich business men. Well it seems Trump doesn't understand that rich business
men often take advantage of poor countries. This is why Trump needs to
listen to people that understand this, before making us look bad or uncaring.

This is why it's so important to have diplomats that understand the language and
culture of foreign countries. Trouble is Trump seems to think he is great about
everything, and doesn't listen to people that know. Sill the State department has
many jobs to fill. Many are diplomats that need to represent and communicate US
 policy. Also to give Americans a place to go when they have problems.
 
Still Trump leaves these jobs unfilled, supposedly to save tax dollars, and has
caused many experienced people to leave the state department.

There are reports that Trumps cabinet members are using chartered airplane to
 travel short  distances they could travel in a car. They should be using commercial
flights instead of spending millions of tax dollars for their own comfort. This shows
how little rich people think about the money they spend. Millionairs and Billionaires
think more of their own comfort than saving money for the tax payer.

Trump signed on to sanctions to countries and businesses that deal with N Korea.
Time will tell how well this works. We can't always believe Trump so we will have to
wait and see how much is true.

We have sent people and equipment to help rescue people under earthquake
rubble in Mexico.  I hope help for our territories in the Caribbean is forthcoming
as well. The flooding in Puerto Rico has people on rooftopsnow. Areas there got
36 inches of rain in 24 hours. The amount Huston Texas got after 3 days. Kinda
tells how bad it is there.

Yes, I know about clicking that link. I just thought maybe we could have something different that is more easily and visually accessible. ;)

So at the steampunk fest my fears about my sewing and pants came true. My pants started coming apart. Partly because I didn't know what I was doing. And partly because the material was so old it was fraying to pieces. So I talked to a few people and learned a lot. Spent over 12 ours sewing up some striped material the right way. I've redone my patterns and will have a pair of clown pants that will be as well put together as any good pair of jeans.  In a few weeks I'll be going to a sci-fi / fantasy con. I'll be wondering the halls as 'Third Clown from the Left' 2.0.
