Well, the family first went to Rome to play tourists. Great city, highly recommend, overwhelming. So much to see. We had a great apartment centrally located so we could walk everywhere. The riches of the Vatican are amazing. The Roman stuff was fantastic; even went to coast and dipped the toes into the Mediterranean. Only drawback was heat – boy, was it hot. Then they went back home and I went to Germany to visit family and friends. I pretty much did that the whole time – seeing one or the other, having a great time. Even hit our local Castle Fest a bit – food and drinks and music around the castle. Always good to get out – it’s a truly different world. The differences become more apparent.
I am back. A good vacation it was. Great to see Europe, family, friends. Not so good that everyone went like this: what were you guys thinking???? Funny thing is they all assumed new elections after Twitler resigns or gets dumped. Had to tell them that we would be stuck with the religious anti-everything nut Pence, followed by Satan’s spawn Ryan.
Seven years of oaths to replace ACA – and what do we get? They are truly the party of losers.
But let’s enjoy the nice weather we are having. It’s good to be back.
ok, vanwa, as a good liberal, I and every other liberal I know, condemn this type of violence. Violence has no place in a civilized society. Period.
Let’s engage in some soul searching, however. Do not paint us all with the same brush. Kindly also look to the rhetoric and actions we have been subjected to for 8 years under Obama. Kindly look at the alt right and their white supremacy on the right that is on the upswing. If all this continues, I am afraid for this society. Crass words (as exhibited by you, for example), do not help anything.
I was struck by the statements published by members of congress. How good to hear that often Dems and Repubs are such good friends outside of congress. Then how about displaying such friendship IN congress??? All we ever see and hear is these morons go at it. If they can compromise outside, try compromise inside and get some decent stuff going.
PS: and congress, repubs, do not try to silence female senators. Your gender bias is showing.
Ha, JJ, what a scenario. It is getting awfully weird in this here country. Herr Twitler must be stressed. The rest of his crew most certainly is.
By the way, letter by his lawyer? Full of bad grammar and misspellings. Almost as bad as vanwa when he gets hysterical as he realizes he is wrong but cannot admit to self or others.
Banana republic is what we have become, with an ignoramus leading.
Where is Nails these days? Vacation? Haven’t seen him here which is very odd.
No need to get so crass, Vanwa. We don’t attack each other here like that. We reserve that for the orange Twitler.
At least you agree the system is outdated.
5 states do not run the country.
He lost by over 3 million votes. Plus, he too dumb to be prez.
Plus, we no need terrorists from outside. We got the rightwing alt right nazis doing the job for them in this country. A fact some people conveniently forget.
Nah, I stick to real facts. Where he lost the popular vote and was elected by an outdated system, with GOP gerrymandering and suppressing votes, with under 25% of eligible votes going to him while half of eligible voters didn’t vote.
Have a good time on trip. It’s good to get out of the country once in a while.
Not left yet. I am not sure what to answer when people over there will ask me what the heck is wrong with the US. Believe me, I will be hearing it from everybody. Will have to say only half of voters actually bothered to vote, that we have an outdated system where the real winner lost, and that we obviously have voters with no brain. The only good thing is that I can also tell them that many of us are betting on the month this year when the orange loser is gone. And another good thing might be that states, counties, towns, individuals are pushing back and continue their good fight for this planet. We are not all that dumb.
Man, we really got a total disaster in DC. I knew it woudl be bad but I thought we had a few decent Republican lefts in congress. I was wrong.
Same here. Had to go to Parkrose last eve also. Cleaning out pond this weekend, redo edges on two berms, mulch in garden, put up deer fence, plant veggies finally, make a run to dump, trim and prune another berm. List keeps getting longer. But we sure are enjoying the weather.
Vanwa, now you are going deep into idiotic conspiracy theories? Dear dear.
You forgot pizza gate.
There, I helped you out.
The special prosecutor, as you call him, is here for the Russian connection. Not for Clinton. Get with times.
By the way, I take no real pleasure in all this. It’s a totally humiliating, embarrassing situation for this country. Just depressing.
I am overseas next month. Let’s wait and see what I will hear. Probably something like: “what the heck were these voters smoking? What is wrong with your congress? And what is that orange thing in the WH?”
On the other hand, anybody see what also came out? Paul Ryan swearing his comrades to secrecy last year when they said something to the effect that Twitler was a Putin puppet? Of course, Ryan also announced he is using caution and wont prejudge. Prejudge? What does it take? He is all into butt covering his own behind.
In order to do a full investigation, we need taxes released.
I am going to wait and see if they are actually doing a real job here. But it’s a start.
Soo, given recent events, the so-called alt right is doing their own spin on things. Seems they are already warning us of the bad things the news media – which they call fake news- will say. Can you say alt right equals nazis actually? Can we stick to the real words?
Can you say they are so scared they are proactively making up responses to facts?
What exactly does it take for some people to see the light?
VanWa, now I know why you like Herr Twitler. You, like him, believe in alternate reality and facts.
He has accomplished little besides making an ass out of himself. Nope, the rest of the world ain’t looking at him with respect. More like pity for us.
Oh good grief, Vanwa. Let me ask you this – happy with the “health insurance” as presented by the GOP House? Yea? Let go of your Obama hate and finally get to facts.
Happy with the embarrassing thing occupying the WH? Yea? We have turned into a third world banana republic at this point. Cringe worthy behavior from the orange dude. Throwing fits behind closed doors. Executive orders all day long – after he promised not to do that. Golfing each week – after bitching abotu Obama taking a vacation a couple times a year. And us idiots pay for it.
As he said himself a few days ago on camera – I stand for nothing. He doesn’t stand for decency or acting presidential for sure. But what do you expect from a sexual predator anyway?
Sickening sickening, making this country look so bad.
Greetings. I am in DC this week. Drove by Capitol yesterday and gave them all a nice digit greeting. VanWa, if this thing were to really pass, you are now SOL. You got pre-existing stuff now. What’s so sad is that according to some Republicans, it’s all a fallout of your own not so healthy living. What total morons.
On a personal note, hope you are feeling better and your pesky infection is cleared up.
I am only one up, enjoying early coffee and sunshine. Moved the kiddo out of DC proper and into a very nice and modern place in Alexandria. Riding the metro. Wish we had something like it.
