You're kidding (with update)

Now, now we've gone too far:

Possibilities

Why did trump do a reversal, back to the original, comments on Charlotte?  I see only four possible reasons.


1. He's actually nuts.

2. He sees no consequence to his actions, because he thinks he has no consequences. 

3, He thinks his base can come through on the next election, and bring others with them. Similar to the last election.

4. It makes no difference to him, because he doesn't plan on there being another election. Witness his threats of war against other countries, Venezuela was the last, I wouldn't rule out other countries, Mexico, anyone else he thinks will work with the general populace of his constituents. I think this is the most likely of the possibilities. He plans on appointing himself president for life. He'll declare a state of emergency, for one war or another. Already a poll exists that indicates over 50% of republicans would support this. Think about this for a moment, let it sink in. We no longer want a democracy, we just want our tribe to win. What they will do, what our policies are, are of n importance. What's important is that 'we' win. 


I somehow don't think he's actually a nazi, a racist anti-Semite. I don't think he's got that intelligence to be so inclined. I think he's just a one focus nut, on himself, and has not thought anything through. His attention span is that of a 5 year old, and whomever talked to him last is what is in his brain. 

59 fucking million of you voted for him. I hope you're happy. You've elected a genuine narcissistic nut to the presidency. You've tainted the office for the foreseeable future.

Charlottesville

I don't advocate, usually, violence in most forms. I do advocate being able to defend ones's self. With the president we have in office, and the maggots that feel free to crawl out from below their rocks, we better acknowledge, as my son did some posts ago, that we should be ready.  This means more than singing 'we shall overcome'.

Gandhi and MLK are not the ones we have to emulate now. We have a president, duly elected, that is giving these scum freedom to act on their base beliefs.

What we need to do, is be prepared.

My youngest shot this at around 15 yards a few years ago, a 10 shot clip. Took about 15 seconds. She got better with the last rounds. Do this, and don't put flowers in the barrels of the right wing nuts coming at you.

You heard it first from me......

In new poll, half of Republicans say they would support postponing election if Trump proposed it

From the SF Chronicle. It's in most of the major news.  And I saw this coming months ago. Ready for the New America, one that does not require elections?

My Youngest

Been watching, as I'm sure you all have, the current state with North Korea, and our nut of a president. We're in a position we haven't been in since 1962, with Cuba.

My thoughts turn tonight to my youngest, Emily. The one perhaps the most like me, which may not be a compliment.

I enclose a picture of her that made the top of the fold in the Seattle Times, when the WTO was in Seattle.


She's the one that isn't shielding her face.

And the song, by the Cranberries, which always make her think of me and my other girl.


Love you kids, all of you.

Summer 2017

As Satchel Paige famously said "If I'd know I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself". I'd love to be out there, backpacking and exploring.


The upper valley of Notellum creek, know to few, told to fewer.
