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.

Hahahahaha!!!

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."

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.

IMHO.

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.
