Trump day 142
President Trump will be speaking to the United Nations. It will be
interesting to see what his speech is about and if he stays on subject.

Trump is still talking about undoing the agreement with Iran. An agreement
that limits their move to having nuclear weapons. To do so will allow them
to proceed as North Korea has. It may be that Iran may try to cheat, but no
agreement is worse than one that lets us inspect them as this does. The only
other alternative is war. I have a hunch Iran will be tougher to win against
than Iraq. Are we ready to spend another Trillion or more with a new war?
Who can say Russia won't supply them with weapons if we do.

Trumps campaign manager Matafort has been told he will be indicted in
conjunction with the Russian connection investigation. So the investigation
deepens. This may give Trump reason to sweat. Only time will tell.

Trump met with the Malayan leader even though he was apparently caught
laundering a billion dollars buying products from the USA. The Justice
department is currently hunting down said property to bring it back to
the US. Trump is basically  sticking his thumb in the eye of law
enforcement by meeting with him. This is nothing new for Trump he
doesn't respect law and order unless its to his advantage.

They continue to ignore the needs of the working poor. The
GOP seems to think if you can't afford insurance, it's just
too bad. You can just go begging.  Some don't care if it's
your parents, children or spouse. Shows you how indifferent
some rich people are. They claim we can't afford it as a
nation, but they are ready to cut taxes for the rich by
hundreds of millions of dollars. Money the rich would hardly
miss. The GOP claim it will make jobs. The rich don't buy
much of what  the average person works to make. They
invest in items they hope will gain value over time. Diamonds,
Silver, gold and collectables. Not jobs. Factories buy
automation more than hiring new workers.

So when the ACA is gone the insurance companies will stop
insuring sick people, and charge older americans higher premiums,
and other things the ACA did not allow them to do. So they can
make even more money, and sell insurance that doesn't cover you,
GOP supporters should call to tell their GOP congressmen and
Trump you are glad  to see your local hospital close and no local
dotor or clinic. If the GOP is re elected in 2018 they will try to
privatize medicare, medicaid, social security and the VA. Mark my
words, because they want to get rid of all government aid or care
so the private sector do it all. If they don't you can just suffer
and or die. Just  like poor people did a 100 years and more.

Most people today don't remember how poor people suffered
in the past. I just hope we don't return to those days so the
rich can get richer. Already many many people have to either
go without food, power, to buy medicine. No money for a
doctor, or dentist. Kids go without good shoes or warm
clothes. Granted there are a lot of charities providing for
people, but charities don't have the funding to help everyone
who needs it.

The GOP claims hey are helping the economy grow, but when
they cut aid there is a lot less money going to grocery stores or
doctors, or hospitals. To even cause some to close.  Causing
people to loose jobs. Something they don't want to admit.

The GOP wants capitalism, and free enterprise, but we
have to regulate industry or they will put profit above
health and the environment. They should remember
in the 1930's how the great depression was seeding
discontent, and calls for socialism over capitalizim.  We
need to accept some socialistizim to protect the poor
elderly and disabled. If we don't it will destroy our
country. President Roosevelt saved our country with
his jobs programs. Then WWII forced the government
to feed industry with enough funding to employ
thousands. Then after the war the government gave
low interest loans to ex service men to buy and build
homes. This lead to a lot of growth during the 1950's

The GOP needs to pass a good infrastructure bill to
rebuild the country. It would provide millions of good
paying jobs. Which would feed industry for even more
growth. Instead they want to cut taxes for the rich who
will do little to help the economy.

Sorry about the long speech, but we need to think
about growth, not feeding the rich who can take care
of them selves.

Leaving your highbeams on while driving or having incorrectly adjusted headlights. It's the drivers responsibility to know how to operate the car and to make sure it is working properly. Not knowing how to turn on the headlights isn't an excuse not to use them. It also infuriates me that the police don't enforce this nearly enough.

*End grumpy old man rant :3*

I saw the heads in WM a few days ago. Definately ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.  >:(  A person would need to put extra padding in the head to make it more comfortable and/or to fit properly otherwise the costume head will be very loose. They also look way overly big for kids to try wearing.

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiight, Varg. ;)  Somehow, I don't think an alligator is going to do much, if any, harm to IT.  :D
From what I remember in the book and the 1990 miniseries, IT is some sort of inter-dimensional or other worldly being.

Trump Day 241
President Trump posted a video implying he hit H Clinton with
a golf ball. Anyone who thinks this is funny should stop and think
is this something we expect from our president? Even if you don't
like Clinton or what she stands for. Violence is never an answer to
anything other than self defense of your person.

Trump has implyed violence is proper from the days of his campaign.
Encouraging his followers to commit violence agains those who  opposed
him. I think he should have been called down then, but instead people
made excuses for him. Including  the media. I think he should have faced
charges for incitment to riot. I think that's why  Trump decided to not have
his rally in Chicogo. If people had riotedhe could  have been blaimed for it.
Trump still promotes violence,telling police to be rough  on those they take
to jail. More than one of his video tweets have shown violence  toward others. 
The president shouldn't act like a school yard yard bully, but until people of
influencecall him down for his childish actions it will continue. joke, or just
politis. Well if anyone posted a video showing someone hitting him, they would
likely be in jail.

Still the GOP makes excuses for him, even laughing about it.  I wonder if the
video had been with a GOP senator or the speaker of the house, would they
still be laughing and saying "Oh it's just Trump." It just shows the GOP is still
cowing down to Trump and his followers. I think it's a terrible example by a
president, and his lack of respect  for others. Encluding the GOP.

The state department continues to suffer under the Trump administration.
Trump doesn't seem to understand that deplomacy does more to prevent wars
than the military does. Just like any family, the world community  needs to talk
with each other. Also to hold out a helping hand when a people  need help. In
the past before missiles it took hours if not days to start a war. Now it only
requires minutes. Without diplomats to pass along our ideas and plans otherwise
misunderstandings can start a conflict that could lead to a disaster affecting
millions of people.  A nuclear war would make the hurricane damage look like
what a thunderstorm might cause in compassion. Add killing radiation on
top of it.

Trump day 240
President Trump is going home to New York on September 19
to make a speech at the United Nations. It will be interesting
to see if he can follow his teleprompter for the whole thing. Or
will he go nuclear and make a fool of himself and our country?

Personally I think the UN should be moved to Switzerland. It is
nothing but a nest of spies anyway. It would save New York a pie
of money with all the diplomats gone. It would still be able to
do what little good it does anyway.

Even with all the terrible weather we are having Trump and
the GOP still don't believe in Global warming. I guess they
will still be denying it when they have to use a boat to get
to the capital building in washington DC.

A book written by H Clinton  and her campaign was released
this past week. Trump felt he had to defend himself even
though he won the election.  Poor Trump he worries so much
when he hears people talk about him. Unless of course if
they call him "Great".

Some in the GOP are calling to have the military to
shoot down one of N Koreas missiles. This won't likely
change the mind of the N Koreans leader. If we missed
it would  give the N. Korean something to brag about.
If we did shoot it down he would likely call it an attack
against them. Let's save that for a missile that is headed
for us or an ally.

Congress is working on bills to place sanctions on China
to press them to not continue to trade with N Korea. Even
if China does end trade. Russia does a lot of trade with
N Korea as well. We should remember that during the
Korean war both China and Russia supported N Korea
with material and jet planes. They trained pilots and
even flew some against the american forces. Who's
to say they won't side with N Korea again even if
N Korea starts a war. China is saying they won't
support N Korea if they start a war, but only time
will tell.
