AAAaargh! Back To Politics

Following the minuscule steps involved in trying to save an organization from itself has gotten to be drudgery so for the moment I'm back to politics.

Don't those nitwits in Washington ever learn anything?  Take health care reform.  The first try of repeal and replace failed miserably.  So what did they try to do?  Apply a few more bandages and force it through again before their Easter recess!  Hello?  DO IT RIGHT FOR ONCE!

The Supreme Court debacle.  You were mean to our candidate so now we're not going to confirm yours!  Yes, Judge Garland should have been given the courtesy of a hearing and actually should have been voted on because the premise it had never been done in the last year of an administration is stretching the truth to say the least.  But what's to be gained by this infantile refusal to confirm an eminently qualified judge?  It's nothing more than sour grapes.  GET OVER IT!

And now the missile attack in Syria.  Of course the Congress doesn't know the strategy. Even if policy and strategy were to spelled out behind closed doors it is obvious there are those within the government who cannot keep their big mouths shut.  Trump has already said he wasn't going to lay out anything within a billion miles of the media because he wasn't going to telegraph our enemies what he had in mind.  Never mind Obama used to telegraph stuff all the time then never followed through! But Trump is right.  DON"T GIVE AWAY OUR PLANS IN ADVANCE!

Sheesh.  Now I've gotten that out of my system, I can report my merry little band of film people are moving right along.  Thank goodness something is.

But, Trump did see fit to warn Putin about his plans for Syria, so Putin could warn Assad and Assad could move most of his planes out of harm's way. He still has his Sarin and other kinds of deadly gas. And, 56 rockets didn't even make a crack in the runways.

You are right, Betty, when they showed the area.. I thought what the heck is that? no planes? then I heard on the news that Trump warned Putin.. and I just shake my head.. just a bunch of posturing.
(artificial manner, as to create a certain impression) from Trump and now Putin ... it is all a joke, except I am not laughing..
