      Trump playing golf while an island sinks and suffers. Typical of someone who has zero empathy for his fellow human beings. President Obama cut his vacation short during national emergencies.

      Republicans are so disgusting that this is beyond comprehension.

      From the Hill article: “Still, the change would not eliminate the regular requirements for a CBO score.”

    From yesterday, how California is helping with four natural disasters this month (Harvey, Irma, Maria and Mexico earthquake):

    And if you’re wondering if the oceans are getting warmer (climate change is here now, not a future probability)…

    And as FUBAR sends out defensive and malicious tweets, looks like officials are finally getting a better assessment of the dire situation in Puerto Rico:

    And yeah, it looks like WaPo’s report of last weekend being a “lost weekend” for FUBAR is true. Here’s the cooperation (not) that WH and FEMA are offering:

      Thank you so much, JER, for sharing this. I have a niece and grand nieces and grand nephews (her children) in Canada and they all love and respect President Obama. It’s a shame that many Americans never really appreciated this marvelous human being who, as president, served our country so well for 8 years. Thankfully, President Obama is still relatively a young man. I am sure he will continue to challenge and inspire young people to strive to build a better world.

        W was a horrible president who ignored warnings of terrorist attach because he was too busy being on vacation. He lied us into war, with horrendous effects the entire world still suffers. But Trump is in a category all by himself. Absolutely rewriting the rules on what it means to be Machiavellian, an unpetentent, repugnant snake with ZERO human qualities. The WORST.

          Snakes are far more highly evolved and have far greater dignity. No creatures in nature behave so appallingly, they only take what they need to survive, not leaving death and destruction in their wake. This thing in the WH has no human good left in him. On any level. His soul, once it leaves the earthly plane, will join that of Adolf Hitler, never seeing Light or rebirth again for all eternity.

      They need to start speaking out publicly against him. He needs to understand that people aren’t afraid to call him out.

    With Air Force One visible in the background, President Barack Obama speaks to a crowd gathered inside a hangar at Muniz Air National Guard Base, shortly after his arrival in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tuesday June 14, 2011. Obama’s visit to Puerto Rico marksthe first by a sitting U.S. President since John F. Kennedy.

    Instead of the country being cowed by the usual dog whistles and threats, I think we are finding our courage and fortitude. Also most definitely our capacity for verbal retribution. Look out alt right. You are way behind the healthy, normal US citizens when it comes to shade. I am not sure shade is enough. Perhaps total eclipse and its only beginning.

    If you know a Republican, talk to them. These aren’t your grandfather’s Republicans. They are cruel and heartless. Food and health are now a luxury…and water, too. Ask Michigan.

    • October 1, 2017 at 12:54 pm

      I suppose he does not understand — or just flat out ignores — the phrase in the Preamble to the Constitution that says, “promote the general Welfare.” It means the health and well-being of the citizens — ALL the citizens — of the United States. These congress people took an oath to uphold *THE* Constitution; not pick and choose which parts they will uphold.

    From Zarna Joshi, yesterday..

    “This colonial empire doesn’t give a damn about the people it colonizes. It especially doesn’t give a damn when those people are brown. Puerto Rico is in a horrific situation but the best military in the world, the US military, isn’t anywhere to be found. They’re too busy fighting wars over oil that caused the climate disaster that has wiped out Puerto Rico and put its people in this devastating situation.”

    – This update is from Carlos in Puerto Rico: –

    “I am here right now with a sip from a cell tower, which will probably have its diesel stolen promptly and will fade out.

    3 died today from lack of dialysis in a hospital – no power for six days, no diesel for the emergency generators, no diesel for the diesel trucks to take the diesel.

    I spent 12 hours today to get fuel to go work and the fuel tanker never arrived at the station.

    Over 3,000 cadavers were unearthed naturally by flooding in Lares and now float on the township, creating pestilence problems.

    There are over 1,200 containers with aid and supplies (food, everything for we are an island) that cannot be distributed for truckers don’t have diesel for the trucks.

    I have seen a grand total of 2 National Guard trucks going from Ponce up Cayey since the hurricane. That’s all the US military presence I’ve seen firsthand. 99% of everything has been done by us, manually. Police have no radio, no comms, no phones, no gas to move their cars.

    99% of PR has no electricity, and 75% has no running water. Over 90% of cell phone service is down. I’m living with a knife-edge machete alongside me, because of the looting and crime.
    That’s the current situation, in a nutshell, no BS.”
