Black people or liberals. Obama just happens to be the creme de la creme since he's both.

It's just poor marketing, what we really have here is a forest rejuvenation project.

We're building a transportation corridor so that the remains of an ancient forest can be recycled. We'll process those remains in a carefully controlled manner so that the carbon can be incorporated into forests around the world. Turning lifeless black sludge into a rich and diverse tropical rainforest with the help of millions of people around the country and around the world.

Mocha creme. Smiley: thumbsup

I just found out that 45 approved a budget that will give me my first raise in the last ten years starting next January. You know, if you ignore the raise this year, 2017, 2016, 2015 ... actually, every year there was at least a percentage increase going back to at least the 1960s. Okay, he misspoke, and actually meant that it was the biggest pay raise in ten years starting next year, at 2.6% (which, mind you, was Congress' decision, since 45's wanted 2.1%, which is equal to the ECI which is what all the previous raises were based on) ... which also isn't true since 2010 was 3.4%, and 2009 was 3.9%. Then Paul Ryan has finally come in to say biggest raise in eight years, which finally makes that statement true.

So I guess what I'm saying is that if you can change enough details in a fiction you can eventually make it true!

alternative ending here:

Smiley: schooled China gives a ton of trade concessions, and helps push NK to the bargaining table
Smiley: schooled Trump hands them back some of the losses he inflicted in return


Trump is playing a strong negotiating game here. He understands that if you simply ask for something, you'll have to give something in return. But if you start out taking something from the other guy first (or even just threaten to do so), you can then give it back (or not take it in the first place) in return for a concession from the other side. If you've been paying any attention at all to what's been going on, you'd have noticed that he's been basically getting stuff from China (and others) more or less just for the promise to back down on something he threatened to do.

That's smart negotiating. Of course, it sends the Chicken Littles spinning around crying about "OMG! Trade wars", but the results have (so far at least) been that he drops the hard line at the 11th hour in return for concessions. This is the same thing.

"I reject your reality and substitute my own"

I see your alternate dimension doesn't include the Trump property deals. What is it like, in that strange place, where trump is a decent, capable politician and human being?

There is no "alternative ending". China is literally backing a half billion to help a theme park with Trump properties. Not trade concessions but a $500mil real estate deal.

Mind blowing exchange I had on Facebook:

ME: Agree to disagree that wielding power to increase that power over others, for personal gain is bad. I am against exerting power to put your own needs above the needs of others, and you are for it.

HIM: I can respect that.

ETA: This was in regards to an elected official.

Why not? His life revolves around alternative facts so he must also have alternative endings.

Speaking of alternative facts, over the weekend Giuliani claimed that Mueller told him that the obstruction probe would be concluded by September 1st. Even at the time, I thought "He's probably just making that up".

Oh, hey, he totally just made that up and was told no such thing. Who could have guessed?

Well, Gbaji is a Republican first and foremost and that's been the trajectory for the rest of the party as well.

Oh, we've all known Gbaji is a GOP shill for years. He just pretends not to be, so it's fun to rub his nose in it.
