Ripping Off Taxpayers - as usual

Happy Golf Day! $97 million and counting...

Read the GAO Report HERE.

Get it through your thick skull! There is one -- and only one -- person Duh Donald cares about and that is Duh Donald.

less than 1/3 as much as golf...

No, American Citizen Harassment (by Duh Donald*)

*Duh Donald may be the stupidest g.d.m.f. in the history of American Presidents.

g.d.m.f. means gosh dern mo fo. And mo fo is ebonics. When Ron Dellums voted against home-porting "the Mo" in San Francisco, a former Black Panther that was a co-worker at Channel 2 (Oakland) said that the newspaper Headline should be: "No Fo Wi Da Ho Po Fo Da Mo - Fo." When I told him it was politically incorrect, he replied with expletives worthy of Duh Donald.

What the 448 page report revealed...

20 years ago (+/- a year or 2) I requested a copy of the contract between "the city" and a vendor under "discovery."

I was sent a gif attachment of the scanned contract which took hours to download. But the city "appeared to cooperate."

Anyway, I won my cases - both of them.

Barr, appearing to cooperate gave Congress (and the public) a similar treatment. 138 MB is a large file. IMO, it is 'contempt of congress.

DOJ released a photo-scan of the redacted report that, technically, sucks.

PBS News Hour (a bit on the educated/informed side) released a better, smaller, version.

The PBS file was a faster download and is searchable. (and only 18,4 MB)

The DOJ file is YUGE and a a very slow download for rural America (Trump supporters). They would give up on downloading it - especially at MODEM or ISDN speeds.

"Native PDF redaction has been available now for more than 20 years, yet this (DOJ) document is just images of redacted pages. As such, there is no searchable text, the document will not reflow on different devices and most importantly this document is not Section 508 compliant. The document cannot be read by a screen reader for people with visual disabilities and it cannot be analyzed using any text analysis tools. The (DOJ) Mueller Report as a redacted PDF document is really kind of sad."

"They're here!"

Right wing-nuts fear. Their vortex is one filled with fear - and being 'found out.'

Well, the Mueller Report (redacted) is out and available on-line.


HERE is a second Department of Justice LINK

Dumbest Yet

I have had to interact with more than one autistic adult. (They are not quite as rare as some think.)

Individuals with Aspergers often think that they (alone) have the solution to some problem.

Duh Donald Trump seems to fit into the Aspergers part of the autistic spectrum.

Think about this - if you can think for yourself.

Duh Donald sez...

If education was spaghetti, yours did not stick to the wall.

In 1973, Trump told the NY Times that he finished first in his class at Wharton. Over time, this claim has appeared in other reputable publications as well, without verification.

Unfortunately for Trump, existing records strongly suggest that this just isn't true.

A copy of the 1968 program in the Penn Archives lists 20 Wharton award and prize recipients, 15 cum laude recipients, four magna cum laude recipients and two summa cum laude recipients for the Class of 1968. Trump’s name appears nowhere on those lists.

Trump is a con man. Uneducated and uninformed suckers fall for his con.

Yes, Virginia, we do have a dunce in the white house.

Too bad...

Now that most folks have filed their income tax returns - and experienced the "sticker shock" of a YUGE Trump deception, what is next?

Trump's new national budget proposal was released. Democrats are pouncing on the president for including $845 billion in cuts to Medicare in his budget's 10-year window.

That's 84.5% of another Trillion $$$ earmarked for the very rich!

And it is far worse for VETS!

The elderly are increasingly joining the homeless.

President Trump's Mar-a-Lago Trips Cost Taxpayers $1 Million a Day - while some seniors forage in dumpsters for something to eat. This is "Making America Great" again?

I don't think so!

The uneducated and uninformed are being conned out of their own future by a well known conman!

There are none so foolish as the blind following the blind.
