Its December and I couldnt help myself

So here goes....my holiday song to the current Administration.

It’s beginning to look like Christmas
Everyone will plea
They are looking at five to ten, sheltering in the pen
With orange suits and commissary cards

It’s beginning to look like Christmas
Warrants for everyone
But the prettiest sight to see, is the handcuffs that will be
At your own front door.

I couldn’t go on. I was having too much fun and couldn’t keep it clean.

Did I just hear Nicole Wallace say that Trump is probably too stupid (my words) to know how to collude?

Photographer Pete Souza Reflects On 8 Years (And 1.9 Million Photos) Of Obama

As the chief official White House photographer for President Barack Obama, Pete Souza had top security clearance and sat in on most meetings and major events with the president.

"I was there all the time," he says. "I wasn't talking to [Obama] all the time, but I was always in every meeting and pretty much every situation that he had as president."



This is a terrific article with many comments by Pete Souza with lots of pics that’ll make you weep.

We cannot win on this platform....

“We are not them.”

As much as I despise practically anyone with an “R” behind their name. We just cannot lean on the fact that they are bad, so therefore vote for us.

We must present a real reason that reaches out and rebuilds the big tent.


So, what are those things that we can succinctly put out there as a platform for the misinformed that might bring them to our side?

Remember who we are talking to. Small sentences. To oppose fear, we must offer hope. How do we turn the message of fear that the ‘pubs put out there and counter it with feelings of hope and that tomorrow will be better instead of worse.

Let's call it what it is...


"Propaganda is the spreading of information in support of a cause. It’s not so important whether the information is true or false or if the cause is just or not — it’s all propaganda."

Propaganda used to be dropped from planes. Now, it is delivered via the Internet. Which is much more invasive.

How do we deal with this viral threat?

No mention of Charlottesville or

The sailors who lost their lives today.

This was nothing more than a hate rally.

This just in!!!

The WH will propose building the wall with HRC emails. The Republicans figure since they can't get over it, nobody else will either.
