Trump Loves Golf

1k9l9w

MDC says, “Hey Donald, you stated how there is so much WORK TO DO; who has time for golf , like Obama? MDC states, ” Mr. Trump ….. YOU ARE FULL OF SHIT. ”

Donald Trump made a Saturday visit to his Trump National Golf Club, Washington, D.C., in Ashburn, Va., on Oct. 14 to play golf. The visit marked the 72nd time the 45th President has visited one of his 17 golf clubs (and, for most of them, presumably played some golf) since becoming President on Jan. 20, 2017.

According to pool reports, Trump arrived to the club around 11 a.m. He played golf again with South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who played golf with Trump on Columbus Day when the president called in staff from a planned day off to keep the facility open to his satisfaction.

Trump carries a 2.8 USGA handicap index, but he hasn’t entered a score since June 2016.

So far, Trump has been on the golf course or his clubs during some portion of the day for 26.2 percent of his presidency.

The Trump Administration, per policy, does not acknowledge that Trump is playing even a hole of golf, much less an 18-hole round. However, if he’s going to the golf club for about 4-5 hours, you can be pretty sure he’s playing golf. Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden has asked the White House to provide the names of Trump’s golf partners, as well for his clubs to provide visitor logs to get a sense of when Trump has played golf and with whom.

The President is certainly entitled to some leisure time, and golf has been an outlet for most Commanders-in-Chief dating back to the early 20th century. However, the reluctance to even acknowledge that this President plays golf conflicts with his almost relentless criticism of his predecessor, Barack Obama, who played an estimated 333 rounds of golf as President.

Trump’s Visit to the UN

2048

President Trump used his inaugural address at the United Nations on Monday to criticize the world body for not living up to its “potential” because of bureaucracy and urged member nations to reject “business as usual” and take “bold stands.”

“In recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement, ” Trump said at the 72-year-old organization during a meeting on reforms.

Despite a ballooning budget and a doubling of staff since 2000, Trump said, “We are not seeing the results in line with this investment” and encouraged UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to focus more on people than bureaucracy.

“We seek a United Nations that regains the trust of people from around the world,” the president said in his tightly scripted five-minute address. “In order to achieve this, the UN must hold every level of management accountable, protect whistle-blowers and focus on results rather than on process.”

“We encourage all member states to look at ways to take bold stands at the United Nations with an eye toward changing business as usual and not being beholden to ways of the past, which were not working,” he said, pledging the US would be a full partner in the reform efforts.

Trump, who will address the General Assembly on Tuesday, also said none of the 193 member nations should shoulder a “disproportionate share of the burden — militarily or financially.”

And he called for creating “clearly defined goals and metrics for evaluating the success” of the UN’s peacekeeping mission around the globe.

With the changes, Trump said, “I am confident that if we work together and champion truly bold reforms, the United Nations will emerge as a stronger, more effective, more just and greater force for peace and harmony in the world.”

In his address, Guterres said what keeps him up at night is the ” bureaucracy … fragmented structures, Byzantine procedures and endless red tape” of the UN.

“I even sometimes ask myself whether there was a conspiracy to make our rules exactly what they need for us not to be effective,” he said.

Later Monday, Trump was expected to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and French President Emmanuel Macron.

More Mosquito-Borne Illness caused by Texas Flooding?

The devastating floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey will damage many human habitats, but after the flood recedes, the waterlogged city may become a more welcoming habitat for mosquitoes. And that means that residents already made vulnerable by the hurricane might also eventually be at increased risk for mosquito-borne diseases like West Nile virus and Zika.

Texas-Flooding-The-Size-Of-Lake-Michigan

West Nile virus has been endemic in Texas since 2002. In 2016, the state had 370 cases; so far in 2017, there have been 36 confirmed cases. Harris County, where Houston is located, has seen cases of West Nile in humans this year, and detected the virus in local mosquitoes.

Texas has also had 22 Zika cases in 2017, although local transmission has only been detected in Brownsville, a city on the Gulf Coast close to the Mexican border.

The risk of infectious-disease outbreaks shortly after natural disasters is not as high as one might think, according to an overview published by researchers from the World Health Organization in Emerging Infectious Diseases. “Deaths associated with natural disasters, particularly rapid-onset disasters, are overwhelmingly due to blunt trauma, crush-related injuries, or drowning,” the article reads. “Deaths from communicable diseases after natural disasters are less common.” The greatest disease risk, according to these authors, comes from population displacement. If people are crowded in shelters with insufficient sanitation, that could create the conditions for disease to spread.

If people are crowded in shelters with insufficient sanitation, that could create the conditions for disease to spread.

With mosquito-borne illnesses specifically, it appears that there may be a delayed effect. In the short term, after a hurricane, there should actually be a lower risk of contracting these viruses, because the water likely washed away the existing breeding sites.

“But then over time, as the floodwaters recede, you’re left with pockets of water which are good for breeding both Culex mosquitoes and Aedes mosquitoes,” says Peter Hotez, the dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas. Culex mosquitoes carry West Nile, as well as St. Louis encephalitis and Japanese encephalitis. Aedes aegypti are the primary carriers for Zika, as well as dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever.

This is what happened after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. There was no increase in West Nile disease or St. Louis encephalitis in Louisiana or Mississippi that year. Researchers suspected this was because not only did flooding and winds destroy mosquitoes’ habitats, but evacuees ended up in areas less affected by those diseases.

MAD AS HELL

mad-as-hell

ANOTHER “NETWORK THE MOVIE”,
​​ “I’M MAD AS HELL AND I WON’T TAKE IT ANY MORE”, MOMENT

Some news junkies have forgiven the networks until now over the miserable coverage of elections that gets worse every cycle. Today we are bombarded with this presidential primary season full of the worst punditry ever seen on our tv’s.

Wall to wall Donald, positive, negative, over the top, you can’t turn to any news program without his image and a repeated news cycle story, only jumping to Bernie and Hillary, Ted and John, as colorful fill. Just the way stories are framed and dragged on repetitively, one reporter after another with the same information stated differently one hundred times or more.

You channel surf and he is in your face. His puckered mouth, his assumptive “I know everything better than everybody” attitude makes New Yorkers want to puke.

Sure there are many people out there, informed and uninformed, blinded by the covered up bigotry of the man, bigoted by privilege and a false sense of birthright, silver spooned perspective on how the world works. America the one that got suckered into buying Chinese garbage products instead of “Made In America”, (our gift from Nixon trying the commerce side of life as a way to lower the China Commie threat), highlights a perfect example of Chinese influence with the Donald. In bed financially with the Commies, we should use the term Peking Donald the front hawker.

The sad reality is that it may be time to just chuck the damn tv out the window, and at least dramatically scream, “I won’t take it any more” as an act of liberation.

mad-as-hell

Networks have been bought out by the bottom line. Network assumption is that this kind of twenty four hour coverage of an Ugly American is a cash cow. What it is, is a dumbing down and it is corporate sponsored.

We Americans take it up the butt with network and cable tv not delivering what REAL NEWS we need. We need trustworthy coverage of the candidates and the state of affairs of our citizenry. We need information not agendas.

Looking for a savior in a President or a presidential candidate, a hero that can bring us into lost prosperity will require a rethink and a review of our expectations. We aren’t finding answers from our news outlets. Congress has been out to lunch since Obama became President. Most people are too burnt out trying to survive to even know what is in their best interests politically and their future prospects financially. That won’t change if the News corporations have there way. Americans have become serfs to mediocrity and we the people are at a point where “We won’t take it any more”.

Republican Oil Tax

OilYoYo

 

Americans are facing another oil yo-yo. As the political presidential cycle returns, if what has happened in the past that the price of oil rises to pay the VIG needed to fund the political campaigns of Congress then get ready to eat oil sticker shock. With the world producing oil glut we would hope the price would lower to help the little guy have a few shekels left after landlords, health care, and taxes eat up every last cent. But if the past repeats itself, now is the time to keep our oil consumption habit in check.

When the last Bush ran with Dick Cheney the CEO of Halliburton a huge oil industry player, it seems plausible that the Oil Industry coopted the election with the shenanigans over ballots in Florida. In what seems a very curious outcome to the election of 2000, oil had it’s way.

When the world discovered oil underneath our precious planet crust, it was a boon to the worlds economy. Great progress has been achieved but the Military Industrial Complex like everything else used this gift of nature to send armies marching and wars to this day are fueled by oil.

Maybe it is time to rethink oil before it is too late. It is almost too late to save the environment. It is close to impossible to return oil to peaceful purposes.

If oil were looked at as if it were Nuclear material that needs to be monitored and protected from falling into the wrong hands, either from incompetence or dastardly intentions, then maybe we could remove it from having marching armies use oil as their ticket to ride.

Big ideas are hard to discover, but Oil for Peace is one to chew on.

Yes politicians or at least 90% of the politicians are funded by interest groups with agendas. People are the last considered issue when it comes to those friends who fund elections. If you are in a major industry you better have representation in Washington. Everyone is either giving or receiving government handouts. It is a huge industry lobbying, and special interest groups have no choice but to find the sources of monies only our financially swayed politicians could promise. This is our political system.

Energy to change our system is lacking when half the population is struggling to put food on the table and surviving in a corporate minded control of the economy that is non inclusive.

We the people have to use our oil products in a fashion that holds the oil companies accountable to the environment and accountable to life itself. Until people globally are fed up then oil will continue to fund the politicians to represent their bottom line, and not ours.

State of the Union 2016

obama2016movie

Barry Obama as MDC would like him to be known, (more personable dropping the K) gave his final State of the Union address.

Barry’s presidency birthed naive hope, after the close call with financial Depression that loomed over the future of America. It was quite clear that Obama would be scapegoated from day one. After all who was going to take the responsibility from the disaster foreign oil wars created but a sucker. The insanity of a spaced out Bush presidency trying to finish the personal war between the Bushes and Saddam Hussein, was what America had to endure. A Vice President Cheney, a bionic hearted hater was the presidents voice. He represented the military industrial complex and the neocons pining over war and fear.

Whether you are a fan, a disappointed voting supporter of this Presidency, or a pragmatic realist knowing what the odds of this President having any congressional support were from day one, whether you feel his youth and perspective were mature enough to embrace the huge responsibility and whether his resources historically and internationally were up to the task, Barry did the best he could.

From day one it was the absolute decision from the GOP side of the aisle to block, deter, sabotage any legislation coming from the President or the democratic side. Sabotage is nasty when that is the agenda, as the leading Senator of his party McConnell said over and over again. Mitch McConnell made it his raison d’être to make Barry a one term president.

Now we are in a new election cycle and MDC has once again noticed that neither party really wants to win the Presidential election. It is obvious that Bush broke and we owned the mess we made in Iraq. Our Congressmen and women never took responsibility over the failed Iraq Middle East policies from the agenda of the former President. Stirring up a medieval crusade were the words out of the Bush mouth, a vision from a reformed alcoholic born again, oh the horror.

What was achieved to the detriment of all of us is a broken unbalanced economy with a debt intended to bring down the Social safety network. The agenda from the republican side since the days of FDR is to kill Social Security and it’s extensions like Medicare and Medicaid.

Pushing down the populace with burdensome debt not created by all of us but by the Congress and the Lobbyists of all stripes and agendas is what has blocked any possibility of growth in the economic futures of Americans. Politicians fattened their pockets and security on that war. Freedom and our individual privacy have been compromised maybe forever.

Barry made a dent in the spiraling down economy, but it will take decades to restore what 911 and it’s aftermath of poor policies wrought. In other words they killed the Buzz, and people born today will never have the freedom we once had after the second world war and the potential we lost with the assassination of JFK.

One Major Foreign Policy

150724165519-china-flag-usa-780x439

 

At last weeks Democratic debate the candidates were asked about their greatest fear, the only answer that resonated with me was from Jim Webb the past United States Senator from Virginia.

To my surprise after the debate Mr. Webb dropped out of the presidential race. His words however should not go unheeded. If He chooses to run as an independent candidate we hope his voice is respected. Webb’s patriotic service, and his absolute understanding of the way things run in Washington, politically and militarily, would have served this country well. If he chooses to remain a democrat and work within the Party, we hope his service to the POTUS of either party will be on the Cabinet level, in any Secretarial role he would choose, he is that good.

Whether one believes that Mr. Webb was a viable candidate, the poles remained unaware.

Webb’s answer to the question of what was his greatest fear; China.

This MDC correspondent long ago came to the same conclusion. 2007LD1

Opening relations with China under President Nixon and his paranoid minions, may have assumed trade, financial relationships, cultural exchanges would lessen the fear of a Communist Power dominating the globe.
Today, with the help of our destroy the planet economic footprint, we get two superpowers competing for planetary resources and making profit the motive against all of the needs to sustain the concept of a living planet compatible to all of life.

Whether we choose to focus our attention on China as an adversary to contain, or whether it is Russia the other behemoth, whether we face the problem of the “Crusade” began by the Bushes a few decades ago when oil became a religious affair, masking the real issue who controls the OIL, the sloppy continuation of failed policies, as far back as the Viet Nam War, has killed and wasted so much of what is good in America.

I believe Jim Webb was proposing American leadership focus on a single country, setting an example of how we would want to be treated, on how we expect the fair play to be on the individual level not the corporate level, some form or other would be a good first step.

We have chaos with the East, the Middle East is in crusade like religious revolution, the Chinese are fighting to remain a communist society full of shameless greed, denying freedoms wherever they tread their inferior goods. The Russians remain feudal with nuclear power, a racist regime.

Getting one foreign policy right like focusing on the Chinese is Webb’s contribution to the dialogue of who and how our next President must lead.

Oil at Forty and Below

oil-prices-environment

Years earlier MDC explained the problem regarding the economic slump. MDC said the only way to remedy the problem was for oil to lower the PPB to forty dollars and below in order to let the small person, the bulk of the people, not have so much of their revenues supporting high oil prices. MDC felt quite clearly that the high cost of oil pertained to the costs of war and the costs of political campaigns that took much of the profit and placed it in the hands of politicians representing military hardware and oil interests. It is no different today.

However this war and political policy has affected the global stasis and turned it into chaos.

Saudi Arabia to my surprise has stepped in and has remained in the fight to change all of that. Who knew that the heavy pumping Saudi’s have done to the oil supply that has forced prices down, and the economies that live off of oil, down.

Russia, Venezuela,Red States, African Oil, Mexico and Canada, Iran and the Middle Eastern Oil producers, have to tighten belts, and the winners are you and me.

The sooner we have reality return to the global prices so that us Americans can again have something left after tithing the world, the better.

MDC concludes with the current price for gas in the state of California is over $4 bucks and rising.

 

CPAC

20140308-222315.jpg

Over the years, CPAC has developed a reputation, as sex blogger Tony Bravo put it, “ for being one of the biggest gay hook-up destinations this side of the White Party.” The Craigslist “No Strings Attached” section, over the years, has become a convenient spot for the same people who regularly attempt to deprive the LGBT community of equal rights–to get down and dirty with some hot, steamy “discreet” M4M action!

MDC shares some of those ads on craigslist for you to enjoy.

CPAC 24 m4m :

It is that time again and I want to have some NSA fun after the speeches
I want to f*ck your mouth while I sign you up on the health care market place.

I want you to be the gipper and go down on my jelly beans.

I want to be discrete.

MDC says, Sarah Palin needs one of these ads after she gave a rousing rendition of a rage-filled Green Eggs and Ham riff, proving that she is still the Queen of mean girl spite, Palin predictably tripped over reality when she was instructing President Obama on foreign policy. “Mr. President,” she spat, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke.”

Translation: Nuke Russia now or else it’s green eggs for you, Mr President! Neener-neener!

CPAC – I need a MAN. NOW! – m4m – 36 (CPAC convention)

What an incredible day today was! Christie and Jindal and some great sessions. I am ready to unwind and have some fun. I am looking to make one of my biggest fantasies come true.

Me: Police Uniform

You: Army Uniform

I want you to bring a couple other guys for this fantasy too!

We begin by you storming into my room with the other guys. The other guys will proceed to beat me (paddles, whips, floggers is up to them! or be creative 😉

After I have been beaten, I want you to threaten my life and tell me that I am going to die for what I did. I got a nerf gun for this fantasy and I want you to blindfold me and place a garbage can next to me.

Here is the most important part…

Shoot the nerf gun at the garbage can and NOT me. I want to feel like you are going to shoot me but at the last moment you do not.

It may seem like a crazy fantasy but we all have our kinks

Afterwards we can hj, bj and a2m

Young and VERY curious wants older teacher – m4m – 24 (Gaylord Hotel)

Am 24y/o MWM at conference and its the first time I have been away from home. Have been very curious about what it might be like to experiment with another man. I have a fantasy where he dresses me in some sexy panties and has some lipstick for me to wear, and I make him a drink and sit in his lap while he enjoys it, and try to flirt with him and make him want me. I would like to feel what its like to be a girl for him, and feel him kiss me as he enters me. Its scary, but exciting at the same time. I figured at a hotel this might be the only chance I could explore this kind of thing. It would make it feel safer if it was with an older man who would be patient with me.

MLK was COOL

 

MDC has a dream that everyone’s civil rights will be protected, thank you MLK.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

– Martin Luther King Jr. – August 28, 1963

 

** MDC has a dream that New York City will not become a police state or the rest of the USA.
