    Thanks, Mr. President

    The lying press writes its fake news
    And sends it to be printed every day.
    Oh what a deceitful message,
    Sounds like the Dems jackass when it brays.

    The lying press holds a dinner,
    To celebrate with the elite.
    They think it’s great fun to ridicule
    And put our President in the hot seat.

    The President is supposed to take it
    And pretend to be such a great sport.
    But the dirty press means these insults
    And acts like a judge holding high court.

    If PTrump went, it wouldn’t be good,
    Feeding those sharks as they circle around,
    Hoping to bite the President,
    Or, if successful, see him drowned.

    And so PTrump politely declined,
    Then scheduled his own celebration:
    A rally for the Deplorables
    To be broadcast across the nation.

    Instead of a night of fun for the press,
    Where they pose and prance for all to see,
    They had to hold their party alone
    And hope that the booze would be free.

    PTrump and fans had a wonderful time
    Everyone cheered, all in a great mood.
    They built up their lagging energy,
    And left with their hope and spirit renewed.

    So we say “Thanks, Mr. President,”
    We’re proud to be supporting you.
    We’re glad you told the press where to go,
    And, instead, energized your loyal crew.

    We’re glad to see that you always put
    Us little guys up high on your list.
    You and our nation are on top of ours;
    It’s “of, by and for” our nation exists.

    There’s one last thing that we’d like to say,
    “Thanks for doing much more than your part.
    You and your crew are restoring our land,
    We treasure your efforts deep in our hearts.”

    Climate March Speaker We Need To Decolonize Our Minds

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/04/29/climate-march-speaker-we-need-to-decolonize-our-minds-video/

    Use “decolonize” in a sentence
    ⦁ “As one pure-bred Marxist at the public university described it to me, Bolivia has to “decolonize” from the imperialist powers.”
    ⦁ “The new constitution seeks to give the central government greater control over natural resources and “decolonize” the country by redistributing wealth and recognizing new rights for Bolivia’s majority indigenous population.”
    ⦁ “Morales built his campaign on promises to nationalize natural resources and “decolonize” the economy, code words for rolling back the rules of gringo-sponsored capitalism.”

    On Friday a WI middle school held an entire day of silence to support the transgender community. It was not mandatory, but some teachers even handed out small white boards in case students wanted to answer questions. The 13 year-old I talked to said she ignored it but was made to feel very uncomfortable by many students. At one point, a student was even allowed to give a speech to the classroom; this speech asserted that anyone not participating was mean and not caring.

    Mother is contacting the school tomorrow. Father is so angry about it that it was decided that mom deal with it instead.

    The schools are pushing to create that Borderline Personality Disorder that Sundance talks about; and they start at a young age to manufacture “Snowflakes!”

    It doesn’t take someone with a Doctorate in childhood development (all you have to do is grow up yourself and then raise a couple of kids) to see that pushing things like transgender on children going through puberty is dangerous. I saw a text that this young lady got from a classmate. It mentioned transgender, fluid-gender, a gender (?), and several other things that I can’t recall. I believe evil is actually trying to destroy our children.

    You would think science would point out that the DNA in every cell in your body either has an X chromosome or a Y chromosome – so NO confusion necessary!

          This is a NATIONAL day of silence sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education’s Network (GLSEN) to spread awareness of bullying and harassment on this community. There has been about a 450% increase in pre-teens and teens declaring themselves “transgender” or “gender fluid” since these groups invaded the Internet to promote their agenda. They have set up “support systems” for “youngsters at risk of committing suicide” if they were not allowed to transition to the gender of their choice through hormone treatments and surgeries. Don’t think that doesn’t scare the bejeezes out of parents who try to fight back.

          The movement is growing faster than you can imagine and that age group is highly susceptible to group-think whether it be a singer or a social movement. The schools who support this should be closed down as their principals and staff lack any degree of common sense.

      • Good instinct, sunnydaze. The fake part is that the “day of silence” is specifically or narrowly about trans people, or that it is being pushed by the schools. It’s part of a much broader student-led anti-bullying movement. It was created by college students in the ’90s to call attention to bullying experienced at school by gay students.

        The Day of Silence was first organized in 1996 by a group of students at the University of Virginia. In 1997, organizers took their efforts to the national level and students on nearly 100 campuses and colleges participated. In 2001, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) became the official organizational sponsor with new funding, staff and volunteers. Although GLSEN supports students’ efforts to organize Day of Silence activities in their schools, DOS is still very much a student-led event.

          A day of silence seems like the exact opposite of what they should promote. Like most liberals, they would rather close down an exchange of ideas than face them head on. If they really wanted people to understand their point of view wouldn’t a “day of conversation” serve the purpose better? However, they might actually have to hear an opposing point of view. Can’t have that. Day of silence it is.

      M. Mueller: please, allow me to be a little more precise. Every human cell, except cells involved in reproduction (sperm and egg) has 23 pairs of chromosomes, one of which consists of either two X chromosomes (XX pair in females) or an XY pair in males. Egg or sperm cells have only 23 single chromosomes (no pairs).

      One might want to, as you did, abbreviate and say “every cell in your body either has an X chromosome or a Y chromosome”. While technically correct, it is an oversimplification. Nevertheless, the point you were making is well taken.

      Anytime they want to give you static about the terrorists, just tell them that you support the LGBT BBQ community, and because of that you don’t support Islam.

      When they give you any pushback, just tell them in all these Islamic countries, they throw gays off buildings and you support the LGBT BBQ community, doesn’t he?

      Just keep talking it back to that. The LGBT BBQ thing was their biggest victim group up until about 2 years ago, and they’re trying to change it to muslims but the two are incompatible. If you hit them with the hypocrisy of that, over and over again, they have no argument against it. Eventually they’ll have to concede your point.

      It’s easy for me because personally while I may not agree with the gays I sure as hell don’t want them harmed and will fight to protect our fellow American Citizens from that crap.

    Developing – tentative budget deal reached.
    A compromise for sure. but if this passes it will be the first budget passed in 9 years of CR Continuing resolutions. So a win purely in getting a real budget in the books if this passes early this week.

    ==> The Latest: Deal reached on funding government through Sept.
    https://apnews.com/635693cfc53f4e8fa3a2187a1eb7ecff?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP

    It denies Trump a win on his oft-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but it gives him a $15 billion down payment on his request to strengthen the military. It adds $1.5 billion for border security.

    ==> Congress Reaches Deal To Keep Government Open Through September
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-30/congress-reaches-deal-keep-government-open-through-october-1

    One of the biggest political overhangs facing the market may have just been removed, when moments ago AP and other newswires reported that House Democrats and Republicans are said to have reached a $1 trillion spending deal to keep the government – which is currently operating thanks to a last minute one-week stopgap measure enacted on Friday – open until October 1.

    According to Washington Post, negotiators from both parties reached an agreement on a spending package to fund the government through the end of September, alleviating fears of a government shutdown later this week.

    Congress is expected to vote early this week on the package, with the bipartisan agreement expected to include increases for military spending and border security, a major priority for GOP leaders in Congress.

    Another possible threat is that the GOP pushes on with Obamacare repeal, a gambit which may prompt Democrats to withdraw any support they voiced for Sunday’s “deal.”

    Bottom line:
    1) Hopefully this will pass and they can move on the health care next. And then in September do a full year budget.
    2) Passage would be the first real budget passed in over 9 years and be a win just for getting a budget passed.
    3) Budget are large and always need compromises on both sides. And that appears to have happened.
    4) Perhaps the President calling out Congress being slow and inneffactive on the Deface the Nation show as being one of his huge disappointments in the first 100 days had some effect.

      At the bottom of the article is an interesting vid on the history of Mayday.

      I was a Cold War kid I guess and Mayday had reverted to it’s original beginning of Spring meaning. It was so much fun to put a basket of flowers on the doorstep of our “Grammy” who lived in the neighborhood, ring the bell and run and hide.
