Loose Lips . . .

Trump has declared that he never mentioned Israel when he divulged secrets to Russia.  It's just like my kid lying to me.  I didn't do something, that I never mentioned and they seem to know all about it.  Guilty as charged.  Flynn is refusing to testify.  He is going to take the 5th.  He and Trump told people that is what guilty people do.  I guess he is verifying that he is guilty of the crimes.

The "Great" Negotiator

Trump says he is good and negotiating.  I think his patterns are starting to show.  He rails against them for his base on TV and Twitter.  Then when he is with the leader of the country he caves.  He probably seeks out pay to play for his company and family.  Then he gives them what they want.  Really looking out for America.

Playing it Safe

Trump gave his speech.  I guess he didn't want to cause an international incident.  His script writer gave a generic speech.  Then, Trump's family got 100M for their "charity".

Low Energy President

Obama flew to meetings all over the world. Clinton made the same trips as Secretary of the State.  Trump is gone for two days and he is exhausted.  Ridiculous! He is showing himself to be a huge liar.  You can't believe anything that comes out of his mouth.  On top of that, his daughter is getting pay to play money for her "charity".  Better watch that one closely.  If she's anything like her father, than we know where the money will be spent.

The Drought Continues

It looked like rain, but none materialized.  I'm hoping for some soon.  The plants and grass need it.  The HOA thinks grass should always be green.  That is even with water restrictions.

Vacation Over

My long vacation is over.  Tomorrow, I go back to work.  I think being at work is a little more restful than home.  My kids are a real handful.  Just two of them can do a lot of damage.  I give it to Angie.  Keeping up with them is a full time job.

Alien: Covenant

Got to see Alien today.  I liked it.  I had read some reviews, but I ignored them.  It might have lowered my expectations.  It was a good movie.  It bridged Prometheus and Alien.  It had more tension and scares than Prometheus. In addition, my daughter and I got to see it in a new theater.  It had reclining leather seats and great sound/picture.  If you have an AMC, and it has a Dolby theater, check it out.

Flying High

We have an airport close by.  They fly small private planes.  They had an open house.  They promised kids games and free food.  I thought it would be fun.  When we got there, there were no signs.  We drove around to look for something.  I ran into an office and found that it was in that building.  They did have food and drinks.  There were no games.  The kids got to see planes taking off and landing.  They did have 15 minute flights for $20.  It was s two seater. They wanted to do it, but we have other plans.

Impeachment for Dummies

So, Trump's lawyers are looking up impeachment.  Is it because they are trying to impeach Senate or Congress members?  Are they trying to find out how much time they have to gut our economy?

Miller Time

In the past, this was a beer commercial.  Then Dennis Miller turned it right slogan. Mow, Trump's Miller is writing a speech on Islam.  He's the guy that looks like the henchman from Beverly Hills Cop.  He's also the guy who wrote the Muslim not a Muslim ban.  This should be entertaining.

The Day After

I'm getting old.  I woke up and my bones are sore.  I still have more to do.  I ran out of time.  Back to work on Monday.

The Idiot Abroad

Our president is leaving the country.  I wish it were for good, but it is only for about 9 days.  He will probably start WWIII with his Muslim speech.  I hear the person responsible for the Muslim ban is writing.  Go white power!  I wonder if they throw shoes like they do in Iraq.  I also read that he may have a hard time with the cuisine.  He likes our fast food.  Maybe, he'll get a Royal with cheese, or a le Big Mac and douse his fries in mayo.

Yard Work Hell

I had to do some yard work.  Sprinklers needed adjusting.  Some of the cacti had grown over the sprinkler heads.  I put them on risers.  Then, I had to adjust so that certain dead areas would get watered.  Before the heat got to me, I had to plant Mother's Day plants.  Now, the soreness is kicking in.

Cooler Heads Prevail

Our air was fixed.  Some wires were causing a fuse to blow.  It's the one bad thing about this state.  When it is hot or cold, if at all, the machine will break down.  During the summer, it can be dreadful.  Especially, if you can't get someone quick.

Teflon Don Strikes Again!

Everyday it's a new conspiracy or disclosure.  He fires the the head of the FBI, he leaks secrets to the Russians in the Oval Office, etc.  Then, it comes out that he requested Comey stop the Flynn investigation.  You'd think the Republicans would be ready to do something.  You'd be wrong.  Every disclosure, the make up excuses to protect him.  Usually, it involves Clinton and Obama.  They want us to think it's a liberal conspiracy.  Even Russia is tryning to help Trump.  Wonder why?

Hot in Here

Florida can be hot.  May has been hot and dry.  Yesterday, I had the girls out on the trampoline.  We placed a tarp to keep the sun off during the afternoon.  It was nice, when there was a breeze.  It started getting hot without a breeze.  I brought them inside.  It was just as warm inside.  I checked the air thermostat.  It said 84.  It was set for 78.  We tried everything to get it running.  Not even the fan was working.  We had a miserable night.  We all slept under fans.  Hopefully, it will be fixed today.

The Leaks Keep Coming

More information has leaked from the White House.  The President needs to look no further than himself.  He disclosed classified information to the Russians.  I guess he thinks it's okay, since they helped him get elected.

Another Day, Quiet So Far

Trump spent his day with his favorite person on Mother's Day.  That person was not his wife, it was himself and his rich country club "friends".  I wonder if he was soliciting their input for the next head of the FBI.

Feeling a Little Better

The low blood made for a draining day.  On top of that, Elana wanted my attention.  It was another hot day in Florida.  I'm looking forward to the rainy season.

Low Blood Day

I gave blood today.  At first, I thought they were going to deny me.  I had to have my blood pressure done a second time.  They did the check again and I was cleared.  After giving the blood, I felt okay.  It hit me a little later.  Of course, the girls demand attention.

SNL a Must Watch

Melissa McCarthy is on SNL tonight.  Yesterday, she was driving around New York on her Spicer lectern mobile.  We should be seeing a Spicer skit.  Hopefully, it's not the only funny skit.

Threatening the Freedom of Speech

Trump now is threatening not to hold press conferences.  Why?  Because he has a hard time keeping the lies straight.  This is unheard of.  On top of that, he thinks a certified letter saying he has no business with Russia is enough to satisfy investigators.  I hope it is not.

President Godfather!

It came out that Trump invited Comey over for dinner in the early days.  At this dinner, he asked him to pledge loyalty to him.  Who does this?  Mobsters, dictators, who knows.  He is not a king.  What he is doing is scary.

Who Released the Hillary Letter?

I was reading Twitter this morning.  I saw one tweet about Chaffetz and his strange behavior.  It seems that he might have released the letter explaining the re-opening of the Hillary investigation.  Comey cane out publicly with it, but Chaffetz might have forced his hand.  The letter he sent was marked Confidential.  Chaffetz might have removed that stamp to release that letter.  It sounds like the FBI might have been closing in on him.  Now all of a sudden, Chaffetz is investigating Trump issues.  Sounds guilty to me.

Where There's Fire!

Trump has fired Comey.  Why?  According to him, he did not like how he treated Clinton.  Do you believe that?  I think he was too close to blowing up TrumpRussia.  His next pick will be a loyal Trump puppet.  He'll bring in a person that will shut down that investigation and open one on Clinton.  Then, he will have the go after his critics.

Time to Testify

Sally Yates got to testify about Flynn.  The whole day Trump sent out Tweets to undercut her testimony.  He even went to far to claim that James Clapper says there is nothing going on.  I guess he missed where he said that the evidence had not made it to him because it was an early stage of the FBI investigation.  He is now a private citizen.  I doubt they give him information.  Yates held her own.  Ted Cruz even tried to one up her.  She put him in his place.  Funny thing is, Trump acts like Yates is an agent Obama, but she was appointed during the George HW Bush Presidency.  She rose through the ranks in the Justice Department.  His claim that she is a partisan hack is wrong.

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Trailer (2017) Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford Science Fic...

This movie looks amazing.  It is a film I grew up on.  I remember seeing the first version.  Then, I found the director's cut.  You really must see the Director's cut.  The first version has a voice over.  Producers thought people would not understand it unless it was explained to them.   Now, it's a Sci Fi classic.

Warned Not to Hire!

For me, if a previous administration fired someone, I do not think it would be a great idea to hire that person.  Then, on top of that, that same administration warned him not to hire him.  Yet, Trump ignored him out of hatred or just stupidity.  From his current hires, I don't see how he survived in business.  I do see how he had failing businesses.  Unfortunately, he's playing with our country and lives.

Born In China Poster

I got a poster to hang in our house.  I thought it would be neat to get a poster that said Born in China.  One daughter asked Why I wanted to hang it?  Because most of my children were born there.

Trump Conflicts Bubble up the the Surface!

Kushner's sister was selling access to the US for investments in her families company.  I don't see where that is not a conflict.  But, you know the republicans will ignore it.  That is until they sell access to a terrorist.  Macaulay Trump (Eric) was boasting that his family did not need US banks because Russia was funding them.  Of course, he claims this is fake.  Only time will tell.

Viva La France!

Macron has won.  This is a first step, but at least Le Pen has been stopped from becoming the President.  This is a blow to both Trump and Putin.  The tried hard to stop him, but failed.  Hopefully, France will go after the hackers.  Our country is not trying that hard to do so.  Whatever they learn, it might help us for later battles.  We have to wait for attitudes to change.  Right now, our leaders put Party before Country.
