Some Odds And Ends You Might Like (Or Not)

The plaque pictured above has been displayed in the Capitol Building in Texas since 1959. It is not only RACIST, but also historically inaccurate -- stating that the Civil War was not a rebellion, and was not fought by the Confederacy to sustain slavery. Outgoing House Speaker For Straus (R) and State Rep. Eric Johnson (D) have asked that the plaque be removed. I would be very surprised if that request was honored. The Republican-controlled state government is not likely to upset their racist base voters.


Last year, the Orange Dotard living in the White House withdrew an invitation for the Golden State Warriors (NBA champs) to visit after learning that most of them would not show up. This week, he withdrew an invitation for the Philadelphia after learning less than 10 planned to attend.

This year, the NBA is beating Trump to the punch. LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, the teams currently contesting the NBA finals, have announced that regardless of which team wins, they will refuse to go to the White House.


After the high school shooting in Parkland, the Orange Liar created a federal school safety commission to study ways to make our schools safe from gun violence. He put Betsy DeVos (head of the Department of Education) in charge of that commission. This week she testified before Congress, and said the commission would NOT be discussing guns! How do you discuss school safety without discussing guns? I've seen first-graders smarter than DeVos!


The Orange Colluder has been unable to fill the job of third in command at the Justice Department. Everyone that has been asked has turned down the appointment. They know that once they are in place, Rosenstein would be fired. Then they would have to either obey Trump and break the law (by obstructing justice to kill the Mueller investigation) or be fired themselves.


Since the Orange Fraud was sworn into office, Democrats have flipped 42 state legislative seats from red to blue! The latest is a state senate seat in the Kansas City (Missouri) suburbs -- a district carried by both Trump and Romney by 4 points. The Democrat won by 19 points!


Has having the Orange Deviant in the White House altered American perceptions of morality? The recent Gallup Poll shows that 43% of Americans now say pornography is morally acceptable -- a rise of 13 points in the last 5 years, and 7 points just since last year.
