Charity starts at home

By Blue Bronc, a Trail Mix Contributor

The Trump family understands that very well.  Trump started a charity just so others could make his home better.  In fact, it made his life better because he did not have to pay for anything.  He paid for political gain.  He paid for crappy pictures of himself to show at a gaudy place in Florida. He even used it to pay for a political person, Bondi.

Now that New York is helping him by dissolving his little money maker he will have to have someone in his mob find another way to get people to give him money.

Born in Detroit when Truman was president, survived the rest of them. Early on I learned that FDR was the greatest president, which has withstood all attempts to change that image. Democratic Party, flaming liberal, Progressive, equality for all and a believer in we are all human and deserve respect and understanding. College educated, a couple of degrees, a lot of world experience and tons of fun. US Air Force (pre-MRE days). Oil and gas fields, computer rooms and stuff beyond anything I can talk about. It has been quite a life so far. The future is making my retirement boat my home. Dogs, cats and other critters fill my life with happiness. Work pays the bills.

  1. considering the Kurds, the twit in addition to using other people’s money also uses other people’s lives

    in both cases, always seems to end in disaster.

  2. This season is not going well.  As a relief from the constant chaos of Donald Trump, I have been spending time with other pursuits except for some daily twitter bombards in his direction.  I’ve been watching the annual long running love story of the eagles Romeo and Juliet.  Now nature is doing her thing in the raw, vicious of tooth and claw.  Almost an echo of the world around them. 
    The eggs were safely laid and the devoted parents sharing incubating duties.  A few days back Juliet was attacked by another female and injured.  At this point she has left the nest and the ground crews have not seen her or know her status.  Romeo continues to incubate the eggs and takes short feeding breaks, but another female (not the attacker) is lurking on a branch, but we don’t know her intentions as she seems to be a huge, young female looking for a life mate.  This morning Romeo is facing a massive storm, totally drenched, but still protecting his missing lady’s eggs.  
    Stay Tuned:

  3. Jamie, I just read your scary update on Romeo and Juliet. My fingers are crossed for them and for those who love our wild creatures

  4. Thank you Flatus,
    I check in on Romeo regularly.  The comments from other watchers can get rather gooey filled with thoughts and prayers that again echo all the other natural disasters out there.  I’m more pragmatic, just watching the soap opera and hoping for the best for this beautiful, dedicated bird living out his instinctual existence, but doing a great job at it.    

  5. I heard on one of the MSNBC programs last night that the smallest thing the trump foundation funded was a $7 fee for one of his boys to join the boy scouts…     now that’s the height ( or should I say HUGELY) of pettiness.

  6. Jamie…  we have 2 pairs of Bald Eagles that live in our area…. I love watching them.  Good luck to Romeo and Juliet.

  7. Well then, 

    “Remember the Caravans?” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Well, they didn’t get through and none are forming or on their way. Border is tight. Fake News silent!”

    Pres. SFB has said in effect what we’re doing now works so we don’t need no stinkin’ wall.

  8. Well if we can shut down those heavily armed caravans everything else should be a piece of cake
    No wall required

  9.  Well, this New Hampshirite remembers that The Guardian also used to back wiki leaks and Julian Assange.  If what they print is true…  and Beto runs for prez…  I bet that will come out in the debates.  And if it is true that he backed things like the fossil fuel industry…  he’s in Texas…  so that doesn’t surprise me.  I don’t like purity tests.  Methinks the Democrats that use them, do so at their own peril.

    So….   this New Hampshirite will consider many things before deciding which candidate to vote for in the primary. 

  10. Speaking of charities –
    I recommend the National Bail Fund


    If you don’t like this one for some reason — there are plenty of others including ones for people involved in immigration issues

  11. given that 2020 will be a we got to get rid of Trump election an attractive centrist with 2 brain cells with look attractive.  Bernie and his bros are already slidding out the door. The median track for those taking his place is hard left with only Biden even looking at the center and Biden is too damn old.  That leaves Beto and his smile all by himself  in the centrist sweet spot.

  12. Amy Sherrod …that’s the ticket
    Sherrod Brown is not provincial   he takes Wisc, Minn and Michigan and of course Ohio plus everything else Clinton got  

    I could also support A Sherrod Amy ticket.
    Good solid mid-westerners with excellent records no phfumpering about

  13. Will be watching All this very closely
    There are at least twenty democrats with some level of presidential ambition we could well end up with a dark horse who breaks out of the pack
    Biden is too old, Warren missed her chance,Sanders, sit down and shut up you don’t represent the Democratic Party.

  14. I’m an Eleanor Roosevelt Democrat. I still think Ohio’s Kasich, if he/we could get beyond party stuff, would make an excellent president for patriotic Americans.

  15. I told my family a while ago to not expect much from me this holiday season, again.  In the office there is resigned defiance to being strung out by a rather pathetic, low intelligence, senile and possibly syphilitic bastard.  What all who are still in town and not on leave it is just a count down to a holiday.

      That SFB did an EO to give federal employees Monday off is more of that it will be cancelled if he finds out than grateful thanks.  Most of us do not care if it is true or not, we were taking leave anyway.  Some cynic offered that he did find out and was shutting down the government so we would not get it.  That is funny because if true we will get the day off anyway, paid or not.

    One big issue I have is the talking heads continuing to talk about him being normal and he is using “strategy” to take on whatever each day presents.  He is doing the what the last person told him to do, and without adding any thought (because he no longer thinks in that jello filling). 

    Today he talked to the blue pill guy who visits the island of boy hookers.  That is amazing.  I thought Fatso died years ago, so news he is still alive is wild.  To be straight talking, SFB is off his rocker, unstable and getting worse everyday.  Normal humans would be in a panic if everything they did was being investigated for criminal activity, and criminal activity was being exposed and prosecuted. This guy is like a low intelligence, emotionally dead six year old.  It is not good for any of us.

  16. The last adult has left the Administration.
    All that’s left is crooks, madmen, or bootlickers, led by a puppet who is all three.
    putin rules until someone pulls the puppet from his hand.

  17. Sherrod would take Ohio in the General Election if he weren’t pitted against kasich. Buckeye pride would manifest itself.

  18. If trump runs for president, he splits the ripper party, and the Dems will win in a landslide, even if we put up a pompous, unlovable bore like Woodrow Wilson. 1912 redux.

    It will be interesting to see whether or not trump can run from a jail cell ala Eugene V. Debbs, so let’s jail him.

  19. Mitchell Joseph Landrieu with Amy Klobuchar or Stacey Abrams. A Flyover Zone Strategy or a Southern Strategy.

  20. With a Christmas shutdown, I think the US government will be sufficiently destabilized that we could experience 7 Days in May over 8 days in December. 

  21. Mattis refused to go down with the ship. Not so Paul Ryan and House Republicans   They now have a bill that includes Trumps five billion for a wall. Problem is that it is DOA in the senate
    Poor Pauli he was never was ready for prime time everybody knew it except him

  22. Jace
    The Senate left town a couple of days ago.  They kept a few in town to do an acclamation vote then most of them left town.  Don’t look for the defeated/ retired congressmen  to stick around for a second vote. This is done till the new year, The House gave Trump  his government shutdown. It was their last dying act.  As Grandma would say “good riddance to bad rubbish”
    Lets celebrate the New Congress come the first of the year

  23. The President isn’t signing a resolution to fund the government thanks to advice from his top advisor: the television.

  24. BB, ” a rather pathetic, low intelligence, senile and possibly syphilitic bastard”.  I love that very apt description of our “president”.
    Poobah, this appears to be one of those – “you can’t fire me, I quit” deals.
    Lot of noisy shit coming out of DC today – hard to remember how bad a week it was for SFB. But if you do have trouble focusing on that, Google djia and it will remind you of how the market has taken to the chaos of the SFB “administration.”  

  25. Jack, what’s even a bit better, Adm. James Stavridis (USN, ret.) said that when Mattis was a full Colonel, actively engaged in  war stuff, his call sign was not Mad Dog – it was CHAOS.

  26. Although I don’t really give presidents credit or blame directly for the stock market, since SFB likes to take credit for it he should also be willing to take the blame for its continued downward trend.  If he does have power over the market (and the chaos of his WH seems to) he seems intent on driving it to the mat.

  27. “So I will take the mantle,” he [IMPOTUS] said [last week]. “I will be the one to shut it down. I won’t blame you for it.”
    “The Democrats now own the shutdown!” Trump insisted in one of his Friday morning tweets.

    Dumbass.  Wear your mantle proudly.
