      He surely does!

      I’m guessing he’s making this trip to China and other places, with the full knowledge of all of the other living former Presidents. Love how well respected he is, on foreign shores.

    Good morning everyone. Have a great day. Don’t forget to call against the republican tax scam and encouraging others to call. I have my democratic Senator Sherrod Brown and that heartless scumbag robert portman (name is intentionally not capitalized, …., was trained by the British that it conveys disrespect … and yes, this taxscam is making me feel very petty towards these unaplogetic public treasury- robbers)

    When you control three branches of government and you still can’t get shit done, it only means that your shit-getting-done process is bogus. I was expecting to wake up to a tax bill being passed, but no, I woke up to total chaos. We have a madman leading our county and a non-functioning government. My only joy comes from Tiger Woods possibly going even lower on his round today.

    In addition to the good news of the treasonous turdgolytes being indicted today, I am happy to report that the biggest, make or break risk, I ever took as a professional engineer in over 3 decades, was a ‘yooge’ success today. I was on tenterhooks for nearly two weeks having nightmares about my decision (there by essplaining my strange silence here !!!) and today I go to sleep peacefully. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      I remember one time in elementary school I had gotten a bad report card. When I got home my mom was waiting for me, I gave her the report and she looked at it and put it on the table, and said your father will see it when he gets home from work. So I went to my room and waited for the sound of the front door opening, not unlike a prisoner on death row listening out for the sound of footsteps coming closer to his cell. Trump has no earthly idea of what’s coming through the front door.
