Trump's right.

We shouldn't import anything .

Not if we can make it here.

The things that we can make but don't,  we should  resume making here.

This obscenely rich country shouldn't  have 50,000 homeless in NYC tonight. In 2018 that should be

5,000.  And 45,000 people should be making replacements for the Toyotas we won't be buying.

That is the only way we can make America a country that is great for the working class. We can't Globalize our way to full employment. We have to import- replace our way there.

Senator Warren forced not to quote Coretta King

Around 9 30 pm Senator Warren, speaking  as part of the Democrat's opposition to  Sessions ,  attempted to provide relevant information about the 1986 Senate's  decision to reject him as a federal judge. After reading Senator Kennedy's  86 statement   she attempted to do the same with Coretta Scott King's 86 letter of opposition.

That's what did it?

During the campaign I thought Trump's chances would be affected by his "Grab a little pussy"  chat.

Or by has cheerfully agreeing  to allow Ivanka to be called on national TV " a nice piece of ass".

Or by the video of him in Australia humiliating Miss Australia  for not meeting his plane.

I was right,  It probably got him elected.

This is not a rehearsal

It’s the way things are going to be from now on. Theoretically two minority members are supposed to be present when a senate committee forwards a Presidential cabinet nominee to the full senate.Except when they aren’t. This past week.

Supposedly it takes  60 votes to stop a filibuster.   Think a Democrats filibuster will prevent  the approval of about- -to- be Justice Gorsuch?  Along with believing in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy.

How could this have happened?

That's easy.   Bernie ran and Hillary lost.Take Pennsylvania for example

 

                                        PA      Election results in thousands

QED

IMHO in specifying today that the "Illegitimate son of Obama care"  will be passed on the same day as the burial of its oft-mocked predecessor Donald the T is committing that Trumpcare will offer equivalent benefits.

Particularly since he was extremely clear during the campaign that he agreed with Obamacare's pre existing condition clause.

Since s

1 Accepting pre existing conditions is a money loser. In spades.

2 To offset that loss on (1)  Obamacare  permitted Insurance.Co   to overprice everything else

3 with UsSGOV  subsidizing  (2).

When in danger and in doubt

run in circles , scream and shout.

1. Trump's not Putin .Yeah he'll be an undignified President but not a dumb or mean one .Personallly  I agree  with him (and Keynes)that "all goods should be homespun". Maybe clutching at straws but I'm hoping Ivanka will be a "friend at Court" re Global Warming.

We survived worse . Nixonl

2. If we retake the Senate in 2 years  we can save  Roe.

3. We increase the odds of that  if the only demonstrating we do is

to demonstrate our support of Chuck Schumer.

 


 

Obama was right on the UN

 resolution condemning the planned next stage in Israel's settlement policy.

The  choices :

(A) support the resolution,i.e. tell Israel  the US want's it to

stop expanding settlements

(B)veto  the resolution i.e tell Israel  expanding settlements is OK

(C )abstain. 

With respect to these choices:(a) is too broad. It starts down a path which leads to the conclusion that

there shouldn't be an Israel. We tried that in 1930. Remember?  Didn t  work.

(b) It isn't

(c) A safe haven.At least compared to A and B.
