    No honest person believes Trump wants a war with Iraq knowing his position on war in the ME and wanting to remove our military from the region. This is just another day for those on the Left who need to rage - cheap therapy. Most people will just call it Thursday.

    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    The Left was really jazzed to protest "Trump's War." Somewhere I posted a similar broadside advertising a "national day of action" on Saturday an. 25, I think.

    Y'know that Porgy & Bess song, "I've Got Plenty of Nothing"?

    (The title alone should be the new Democrat anthem. ". . . and nothing's plenty for me." But it's a happy song; it would NEVER do.)

    There's a line in there about "somebody could steal the rug from the floor, wouldn't bother me. . . ."

    Well, here's another rug that got pulled out from under them.

    The dumbest thing I've heard is the attempt to blame the civilian deaths of the plane Iran shot down on Trump.

    This CNN report just now features a politically mindful gentleman, whose English CNN discretely repairs (he's featured at the end of the video segment at the site):
    "Even if it's Iran, the blame is on USA. If President Trump hadn't ordered the drone strike on Soleimani, all this wouldn't happen, we wouldn't be here today grieving," Ardy Gharagozli told CNN before Iran had acknowledged downing the plan. As he spoke, Gharagozli clutched a photograph of family friends who died on Flight 752.
    If he's who CNN says he is, and not a political plant, I'd grant him slack here. I don't think people grieving, especially in the immediate time following, should be held to account for lashing out irrationally. After a while I expect better, and yes, Michael Berg comes to mind.

    But I do expect better from our high elected officials:

    Democratic Rep Blames Trump for 'Collateral Damage' of Ukraine Plane Crash, Urges Diplomacy With Iran Rather Than Military Strikes
    U.S. Representative Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) claimed Thursday that President Donald Trump could be to blame for the fatal crash of a Ukraine passenger jet in Iran on Wednesday, due to "collateral damage" caused by his "provocative" killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

    Speier made the remarks during an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, on the Thursday edition of his show The Situation Room. The congresswoman confirmed that she had heard classified details concerning the claim by U.S. officials that the plane was accidentally brought down by an Iranian anti-aircraft missile strike. She insisted Trump would be responsible for the crash if the claim proves to be true.

    "If what is being projected is true, this is yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken in a provocative way by the president of the United States," Speier said.
    I think being a California Democrat is a special kind of stupid.

    Maybe the Stones' song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" should be their anthem, now that I think about it.

    The Ds love to imitate Trump. Trump uses salty language? They can talk dirtier. So Trump uses a Stones song at his events? The Dems can use their biggest #1 hit!

    Actually, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is more or less tied for the Stones' biggest hit with "Honk Tonk Women," which also might be a great anthem for the Democrats.

    Yeah - they didn't get the recession they predicted, then hoped for, then needed - and now they don't get their war to rail against? Whatever will they do? Tax cuts for the rich? The rich are benefiting while the poor are suffering? Oh I know, Trump is going to outlaw abortions! Or maybe Trump is going to be outed as a pro-choicer!

    Who knows?

    This is going to be an interesting political season. Trump ran on a bunch of stuff and while lots of the reasons I voted for him haven't materialized he's still better than anything the Democrats have running - can someone pull Tulsi Gabbard aside and explain to her why her handlers are wrong about Medicare for All? Can someone get Jim Webb on the line? Gabbard-Webb with a promise to be "not Trump" and "ok, we won't fuck the with the economy but we're going to cut corporate subsidies to fund these pet projects" would win. It would win huge.
