Maybe it is time to get rid of FEMA. I mean, why should Wisconsinites help pay for disasters around the country especially in HIGH RISK areas? Isn’t it those state’s fault that they are prone to bad conditions or bad administrative decisions? One could say that the Tornadoes in Oklahoma are a preexisting condition: Floods in North Dakota. Hurricanes in South Carolina. Fires, mudslides, tsunami waves, and earthquakes in California. All of these are preexisting conditions that citizens who live there are well aware of, yet, they choose to live there. Why is it in Wisconsinites’ best interest to pay for the lack of proper forest management in Colorado? Why didn’t Colorado’s government spend more money to prevent wildfires in first place through better forest management? Seems like they’ve made some foolish decisions in their past.
I guess, maybe it is for the greater good. I suppose it is for those rare times when Wisconsin’s acute problems flare up and we need a good specialist to help make things right.
FEMA has some problems and glitches and like any other system it isn’t perfect. Of course, this single payer system is working pretty well, especially for those folks, ahem, states that have chronic issues.
Everytime Trump supporters say that the President is looking out for them, I can’t help but wonder where they get this idea. Donald Trump has routinely burned small business owners and workers throughout his life. Once again he has lost a lawsuit that he brought upon himself.
A lot has happened since the last Trump Tweet Watch. I’ve been busy the last few weeks so I missed out on writing up the weekly Trump Tweet Watch. Here is the updated chart. You’ll notice that his twitter activity has increased since April 21. I think this is because he realized that his 100th day in office was fast approaching and he hadn’t succeeded with anything. Anyway, here it is:
I posed a question (maybe it was a theory) earlier if Donald Trump would quit his Twitter account after ordering his first attack last night. Although it wasn’t his own original thought he responded a few hours ago by retweeting something Ivanka posted. Yea – TTW will likely continue!
Trump used Twitter this week to spout more insults, election victory gloating, to spread more FAKE NEWS, and of course deflection away from his Russia ties this week. He didn’t disappoint. Continue reading “The Trump Tweet Watch”
The bottle says, “An American wheat ale with a spicy hop character, mildly fruity aroma and the color and scent of a sunny afternoon.”

Republicans used the “nuclear option” and dismantled the Senate rule requiring 60 votes to confirm a Supreme Court nomination. These seats are lifetime appointments so they are very important to get right. Last year, after Justice Andrew Scalia died, President Obama should have been allowed to nominate and confirm the next justice. It was his privilege as the President to do so. His nominee, Marrick Garland, didn’t even get a hearing. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) said, “The schedule in the Senate is set by the majority leader.

This might be the first non political post we’ve made on this blog. No worries, it’s well worth the read!
Ed Sheeran – Divide
This one might not be earth shattering and unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last month you’ve heard a number of songs off this album and probably liked at least one of them. In my humble opinion the album is solid from top to bottom. You’ve got your up beat songs like Barcelona, which by the way is my favorite song on this album, and Galway girl. There are songs with strong Irish influences to them, Galway girl & Nancy Mulligan. Then there is probably the oddest song on the album New Man. You’ve got Sheeran kind of rapping about a guy bleaching his asshole. But it works and the song is catchy. I don’t think it will be a #1 hit but they all can’t be.
Of course you have shape of you and castle on the hill which have been huge hits already. If you get the chance watch the video for castle on the hill. It definitely reminds me of being younger and doing some dumb things…which a lot times involved Braund.
