The GOP and Trump both seem to be avoiding any support to
prevent attacks on our election this fall. They voted to cut
$300,000 in aid to  help state and local officials prevent
such attacks. The Democrats tried to restore it, but the
GOP prevented it. To me it looks like the GOP is hoping
the Russians will help them again this fall. If true they should
be held responsible for breaking their oath of office. 

The other day an unfortunate accident happened that cost 17 lives. 
An amphibious boat was caught out on a lake during a violent
storm and sank. I only bring this up to say the Democratic
US senator said we need to see that these boats are properly
regulated to help prevent this from happening again. Once
before such a tragedy occurred and was found the cover that
protects occupants  from sun and rain was a big cause as it
prevented people from escaping. This was ignored and and it's
removal during lake crossings wasn't required by law. This top
apparently caused several of the deaths this time as well.  A
republican senator opposed making any regulations waiting to
find the real cause that might take a year.. In the meantime the
boats will likely operate as before. The GOP as usual are anti
regulation even when it puts the public at risk. Especially if it
might cost a big business a lot of money.
I know Trump says we need to be friends with Russia. I agree,
but not at the expense of our rights. Trump doesn't care about
peoples rights as long as it doesn't affect  him. Many of the
rich down through history have only delt with the masses
when they had to. Otherwise they are ignored and left to
suffer and die. If you think Trump is different I fear your in
for a big surprise.

It seems many of Trumps supporters think the right to own 
firearms exists in Russia. They best think again. To have any
firearm in Russia requires permits, licenses, and registration.
Not just for the weapon, but any and all ammunition as well.

Nearly all firearms that are in the hands of Russians are those
for hunting animals. The last thing Putin and his cronies want
is a population with weapons they could use to overthrow the
government. I doubt if the military foot soldiers  have any
ammunition until they are ordered to use it.

Trumps supporters should keep this in mind when they see
Trump cozying up to Putin. If we loose our democracy it's
very likely leaders that follow will go after our firearms. For
the public good of course. I am sure most would feel they
could prevent it, but such a government would get them, even
if it took years.

A recording of Trump talking about payments to a porn star was
revealed. If it says what was reported it shows Trump has been
lying about his relations with the porn star, and the money as
well. Trump apparently didn't report this on his campaign spending
report. So he might be guilty of breaking campaign laws, and
perhaps other laws that affect money handling.

Loved the story Iíve re-read it a couple times now ^^. Great job!!!  :) :) :)

Thank you so much Amducious!  :)

What about...
"He shattered his femur, and water was running low"
If that is too "directive" you do not have to use it.

I will definitely add that phrase to the list, thanks Jade!

Trump continues to call the media fake news. He uses this ploy trying
to coverup his misdeeds, and mistakes. Trump stacks lie upon lie trying
to keep himself and his family out of trouble.

Trump is mad at his CIA director because he didn't stay loyal to him during
a interview by NBC. It's possible Trump is looking for a replacement. This is
the same guy that told him the Russians hacked the 2016 election.

Trump has invited Putin to  Washington DC this fall. Even into the
white house.  We can only wonder what secrets Trump may expose
to the Russian leader.

I have heard some Trump supporters say Trumps a man who understands
the little guy.  Do they really think a man who never had a day in his life
where he had to do without, could have any idea what it's like to work
for a living? This guy started out as a multi millionair. It's likely all he had
to do as a kid was to crook his finger and his wish was granted.

People like this have no idea what the average person goes through to
make a living. He may have some idea told to him by friends or by
watching TB, but no real life experience. The kind of experience that
it takes to give one a true understanding of the real world. He like many
rich people feel poor people to be lazy bums that want everything
given to them.

This is why many  in the GOP want to get rid of social programs.
That and to lower their taxes.  They lower taxes then when the
democrats take power they have to raise taxes to cover the
deficits  caused by the GOP's tax cuts. The GOP turns around and
blames the democrats and social programs for higher taxes.

The GOP keeps this going in circles to help them stay in power or
return to power. Just  like they don't want to fix the immigration
problems. They want to use it to help get elected.

Politicians couldn't get by with this if the public would pay
attention to  what their public official do, and vote them out
for such activities. Instead many people listen to their half
truths andlies when they run for election. People shouldn't
vote for someone because their friends or family want them
to. Women shouldn't listen to their husbands on how to vote.
This happens a lot unfortunately.

I see an ad where a man is running for US senate as a republican.
This is well and good, but he is saying his democratic opponent is
too rich to understand our needs. This is so hypocritical when his
party stands behind a billionaire as our president.

The trainer we have actually did her training with and uses the methods of Caeser Millan.

Kimba had another session today, working on lead walking and more advanced car stuff, and she is showing very good improvement. All her walks are now going to be on the slip lead, and we're starting to shut car doors with her inside the car.

Way to go, Federal Government. I hope you're proud of what you've approved here.  *sarcasm*  :goldpissed:  :goldpissed:  :goldpissed:
Nothing that wasn't already legal under the First Amendment. Besides, having the plans for something is not the same thing as making it, or even being able to make it. That's why I have plans for the Sten Mk II submachine gun despite not owning a metal lathe.

Kimba's pretty! I'd say use Ceaser Millan but it'd be hard to get him.

My good news is it's Eevee's birthday/adoption day!

I understand Kay. It's so sad that people become so set in
their ways they can't acept changes in society.  It's not that
they are all bad people, I think most really feel they are doing
good. This is why we are supposed to have people in government 
that look past emotion to do the right thing.

I really don't know what will change them except a disaster of
some kind. The Great depression changed a lot of people then
again it didn't change others. It's sad, but many people like
to place blaime on anyone but themselves.

Trump is a lousy businessman, and doesn't understand world
politics. But he understands how to manipulate a large percentage
of people. He is a professional actor, and salesman. A man who
probably could sell a furnace to those living on the equator.
A Charismatic  person who understands the human psyche can
sell almost anything. Just look at the various cults and religions
around the world.

If President Trump actually cared about making this country
great for anyone but the riches Americans. He could be a
great president. Unfortuantly he is a man who
care nothing for anyone but himself, and is oversized
ego is dragging his presidency down and likely the
whole country eventually. down.

Sure the economey is doing fine, but his tarrifs
and bad trade deals will put an end to that.
Obama left with a growing economy. The GOP
and Trump have tied their wagons to it. So
when it does slow down or crash it will take
them with it.
History has shown tarrifs hurt the economy. It
was one of the big causes of the great depression
along with a overgrown stockmarcket.
Sound familiar? Time will tell.

Trump has supported Putin from the beginning. What
ties Trump to Putin? Trump hides his tax returns.
 What secrets do they hold? Congress could get them
but they seem to be afraid of what they might find.

Trump is considering sending Obamas ambassador
to Russia because Putin wants to question him. It's
likely Putin wants to imprison or kill him. The man
has been under threat by Putin for some time. Sending 
this man to Russia could be a death sentence.

Trump continues to claim
he has been very tough on Russia. More than any other president. This is
ridiculous, could it be Trump really believes it? If so we are in the hands
of a man who is loosing his mind.

It's a well known tactic of Trump to make an outlandish statement that he's doing something better than everyone else.
It's a tactic that's served him well in his business dealings and it works against the more simple-minded citizens who would rather just switch their brains off and bring in a president who won't ask them to think about political issues.
Just listen to this crap:

And it really upsets me this whole mentality of "Can't someone else do it?" when it comes to politics.
My own dad gets mad at me when I try to bring up politics. He asks a question about why gay people want marriage, or why the Black Panther movie talks about racial issues. Then when I try to answer him he shuts me out. Because he doesn't want to think about the political structure of the country. H doesn't want to acknowledge that the political landscape affects him. He just wants to sit in his room, he and my stepmom, watching tv, and sit in their little bubble and pretend the world outside doesn't exist.

And I see his attitude in a lot of people. People who want the politicians to run things for them so they can sit at home watching their reality tv and pretend there isn't a world beyond the town they live in.
Nearly all of them will never leave their towns in their whole lives. Most of them won't even ever get the chance to step outside of their states so why should they think about the world beyond their front door if they never see it?

(On a side note if I had some god-like power to make something mandatory for all people it would be that every person on earth must spend a minimum or two years traveling abroad, visiting other countries and seeing the world. Every person on Earth.)

Those in Russia look at Trump like he is a fool since the meeting with Putin..
Back turning Trumps campaign Putin remarked that Trump acts like a clown.
Trump at the time tried to say Putin was praising him.

It isn't just Russia. Countries all over the world have made their own parodies about Trump.
I won't link it here because of the language but look up on youtube "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" and go to time index 4:05 where Oliver shows just a handful of parodies that other countries have made about Trump.

Trump, and the US by proxy, is a joke in the eyes of the world. Trump got into office with the slogan "make america great again" but he has done the exact opposite.
Obama tried very hard to raise the US' standing and image in the world and maybe if the republicans hadn't held him back so much he could have done more than baby steps. But whatever progress Obama made to make america look decent to the world has been destroyed by our electing a man who is so outlandish, so loud, so selfish, and so ill-equipped for office that he's like a cartoon character. Like an american stereotype as seen in japanese anime that has come to life.

And now I'm going to stop because I feel like I'm just rambling and fear I may have completely lost whatever point I was attempting to make.
