Donald Trump and the Trumpcare Disaster

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 06:44

Well what a difference a day makes. On Thursday Donald Trump was sitting in the cab of a monster truck demanding that Republicans support his plan to replace Obamacare.

Or else.

And when he woke up yesterday morning, he seemed pretty confident his Trumpcare plan would be approved.

But sadly for him, that's as good as it got.

Samantha Bee on Donald Trump's Hard Power Budget

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 06:18

Well there he was yesterday, sitting behind the wheel of a monster truck, looking like he was about to start mowing down his many enemies, real or imagined.

But the truck wasn't moving, thank goodness. Donald Trump wasn't going anywhere.

And neither is his plan to destroy Obamacare.

President Trump issued an ultimatum on Thursday to recalcitrant Republicans to fall in line behind a broad health insurance overhaul or see their opportunity to repeal the Affordable Care Act vanish, demanding a Friday vote on a bill that appeared to lack a majority to pass.

So Trump is now giving Republicans an ultimatum, pass my bill today, or ELSE.

The Quebec Bashing Media and the Tempest in a Snowstorm

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 05:02

It's a classic Canadian story, with some of the good and some of the bad that makes us who we are. And a lot of snow which does the same thing.

And it could have been an uplifting tale about battling and conquering the elements in the Great White North. 

But instead it turned into a horror show, where more than a week later they're still trying to figure out how this could happen.

And to make matters worse, some in the Con media are using what happened as an excuse to bash Quebec and Quebecers again.

Rona Ambrose, the Budget, and the Scandalous Cons

Thu, 03/23/2017 - 04:42

I almost felt sorry for Rona Ambrose yesterday, as she tried to say something intelligent about the Liberal's new budget. 

Only to fail miserably.

And end up looking, once again, like the village idiot.

Claiming that Liberal spending was out of control, and that it was a "nightmare scenario."

The Con Clown Leadership Scandal Just Got Worse

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 07:57

In one of my last posts I wrote that the Con leadership race was starting to look like a crime story.

And I suggested that it might be time to call in the police.

Or at the very least the Keystone Cops.

Because that grubby leadership race is becoming more and more farcical.

Tue, 03/21/2017 - 04:47

It was an extraordinary sight, and Donald Trump's day of reckoning.

His worst nightmare coming true.

The FBI director, and the director of the National Security Agency, testifying before the House Intelligence Committee, and all but calling Trump a liar.

Donald Trump and the Lies That Will Destroy Him

Mon, 03/20/2017 - 06:09

Well we know that it wasn't exactly a meeting of minds. 

We know that Donald Trump acted like an orange oaf when he met with Angela Merkel.

Or like a very small man, with no manners or class. 

And we know how it ended...

Why the Police Should Investigate The Con Leadership Race

Sun, 03/19/2017 - 08:49

The other day I warned that the Con leadership race was becoming more desperate and more porky by the day.

With so many mediocre candidates, and no new ideas. 

And now to make matters even worse, the suffocating stench of scandal.

With Kevin O'Leary aka Mr Wonderful, claiming he was robbed.

Ezra Levant's Grotesque International Embarrassment

Sun, 03/19/2017 - 04:09

For years Ezra Levant has disgraced himself, and disgusted decent people all over Canada, with his ugly professional bigotry, and his total lack of class.

Or the way he begs for money all the time, like a screaming beggar.

But now Levant and his hate mongering rag The Rebel have finally hit rock bottom.

Donald Trump's Cruel and Monstrous Budget

Sat, 03/18/2017 - 06:53

It's a budget plan only the monstrous Donald Trump and his bestial followers could love. 

A plan that would take money from the poor and the vulnerable, and hand it over to the police, the military, and the millionaires.  

One that would attack the arts and the humanities as only fascists can.

And one that could only be the product of those who would describe the crippling of meals-on-wheels programs all over America as an act of "compassion."

The Con Leadership Race Is Now a Stinky Scandal

Fri, 03/17/2017 - 03:55

It's a horrible sight, it sounds bestial. Oinky, oinky, honky honk!!!!

And it smells even worse. 

But who can be surprised?

As the never ending Con leadership race heads towards the final stretch, the stench of porky is in the air.

And the most disgusting leadership campaign in modern Canadian history is in danger of gassing itself.

Donald Trump and the Disciples of a False Prophet

Thu, 03/16/2017 - 10:09

Well there he was in Nashville yesterday, surrounded by his faithful supporters, and bellowing like a beast.

Giving them what they wanted. 

Another chance to chant "lock her up" four months after the election.

For they are beasts like him.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal and the Power of Love

Wed, 03/15/2017 - 09:11

I don't know how many times I've heard a dying person say, " I'm glad I'm going first because I can't imagine living without my beloved husband/wife/companion."

Which although it's exactly how I feel, always makes me feel a little guilty or wonder whether I'm being a bit selfish.

So I give thanks for the life of Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

Donald Trump's Disastrous Trumpcare Scam

Wed, 03/15/2017 - 06:33

I must admit that when I saw Rachel Maddow's breathless promo, for a brief moment I had a vision of Donald Trump in handcuffs.

But sadly, although the leaked tax forms did show that Trump is not a very good businessman.

President Trump wrote off more than $100 million in business losses to reduce his federal taxes in 2005, according to forms made public on Tuesday night:

By claiming losses, Mr. Trump apparently saved millions of dollars in taxes that he would otherwise have owed.

There was so little in those few pages, that one had to wonder whether Trump had leaked them himself.

Donald Trump and the Incredibly Shrinking President

Mon, 03/13/2017 - 07:45

As you probably know, Donald Trump has been trying to keep a very low profile ever since he sent out these deranged early morning tweets just over a week ago.

He has turned into the Incredibly Shrinking President, no doubt hoping that Americans will forget all about those tweets, and not question his sanity.

But now he's run out of time.

Donald Trump and the Republican Revolt

Sun, 03/12/2017 - 08:52

Ever since he accused Barack Obama of tapping his phone, Donald Trump has been trying to behave himself.

He has toned down his compulsive tweeting. He hasn't made any other outrageous statements. 

He's trying to reassure Americans, and the rest of the world, that he's not having a nervous breakdown. And that he can be trusted with the nuclear button.

But sadly for him, this tweet can only have made even more people wonder about his mental state.
