            😀 😀 Coming back to this made me chuckle. Work called earlier to remind me that there are three online work-related videos that I need to complete by the end of the month. So I went to the site to do them. Groan…. started having difficulties accessing the 3rd one, while the 2nd was completed but not recorded in my training profile! Ah, well, there’s tomorrow to sort this out.

    Thanks NW. Trump and his family need a lesson in public service, instead of fake photo-ops.

      I know how that feels. I was in Washington state in January 1992 for two weeks. It rained for almost 2 weeks and when the sun came out the last few days there….ALL the folks from California stood up like these folks and was so glad to see the sky and the sun.

      See BobFr’s post upthread (comment #50 at the moment) with tweet from @20committee.

      Violence doesn’t accomplish anything, other than enraging, escalating mindless vengeance.

      People who steadfastly adhere to violence because they hate FUBAR so much means deepening the divide between US citizens — which gives FUBAR the perfect way to unite the country… by going to war with either (or both?) Iran and/or North Korea, which would be catastrophic for the US.

    ha, Special Counsel Mueller is working with the New York AG mitigate any pardons by the homegrown demagogue => state charges can not be nullified by a presidential pardon.

    should the homegrown demagogue pardon any people on Team Treason, then states (especially New York) are already working on a back-up plan to file state charges;

    many of us have heard about this for a long time.

    it is therefore not surprising to see that some are FINALLY reporting it;

    ps,

    by pardoning the racist corrupt arpaio, the homegrown demagogue revealed that there is nothing he wouldn’t do to pardon his corrupt network.

    his arrogance and corrupt stance made it urgent to put in place alternative plans … checkmate;

    or as they say …. he who laughs last laughs loudest and longest

    General who oversaw Katrina relief rips federal response to Harvey
    BY JOHN BOWDEN – 08/30/17 09:17 PM EDT

    The commanding officer who led the federal response to Hurricane Katrina blasted current relief efforts in Louisiana and Texas following Hurricane Harvey, warning on Wednesday that officials were unprepared for the scope of the disaster.

    “In Katrina, we had 40,000 National Guard [troops], 240 helicopters on the fourth day,” retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré told CNN. “They just got 100 helicopters in Texas. Something is significantly wrong in our command and control.”

    “They need to stop patting each other on the back while these poor people are out here waiting to be rescued,” he added.

    Honoré told CNN that the disaster caused by Harvey was “a lot bigger” than the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, which in 2004 left more than 1,200 dead and caused $108 billion in damages.

    “This is a lot bigger. I went out on a boat this morning in this very same community right here. This is huge,” Honoré told CNN.

    Things just got more complicated for the people in Houston

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41104451

    Chemicals have been released into the atmosphere from a flood-damaged plant near the storm-hit US city of Houston, local officials say.
    Earlier, black smoke was seen issuing from the Arkema chemical plant at Crosby.
    A police officer who was helping secure the site was taken to hospital after inhaling fumes, while nine others admitted themselves as a precaution.
    Arkema said this was believed to have been caused by a “non-toxic irritant”.
    Harris County sheriff Ed Gonzales said the release was not believed to have been a result of an explosion, despite earlier reports of blasts.
    Residents living within a 1.5-mile (2.4km) radius of the plant were evacuated after the company warned there was a risk of explosions and fire.
    During heavy rainfall from Hurricane Harvey, the complex lost the ability to refrigerate chemical compounds that need to be kept cool.
    In an earlier statement, Arkema said: “At approximately 2am CDT [07:00 GMT], we were notified by the Harris County Emergency Operations Center of two explosions and black smoke coming from the Arkema Inc plant in Crosby, Texas.
    “We want local residents to be aware that product is stored in multiple locations on the site, and a threat of additional explosion remains.
    “Please do not return to the area within the evacuation zone until local emergency response authorities announce it is safe to do so.”

    I also just read that the city of Beaumont has lost its water supply. Not safe to drink.

    The Fate of the DREAMers is on the Line
    by Nancy LeTourneau
    August 30, 2017

    I watched Trump’s speech in Missouri, not because I was interested in what he had to say about tax cuts (another of his agenda items that is likely DOA), but because I wanted to see if he had anything to say about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. That is the name given to President Obama’s executive order that protects young undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children, otherwise known as DREAMers. He didn’t address the issue.

    There is a reason why many people have been suggesting that an announcement about that program is imminent. A federal court in Texas halted a similar program for parents of childhood arrivals to the U.S. (DAPA), but the case is ongoing. Litigants have said that if Trump doesn’t halt the DACA program before September 5th, they would add it to the court challenge on DAPA. At that point, the administration would have to decide whether or not to defend DACA in court—a responsibility that would be up to AG Sessions.

  72. August 31, 2017 at 9:55 am

    Good thread on how Trump has pulverized our relationship with Mexico. Also, EPN leaves for a state visit to China next week.
