TRUMP "MISSPEAKS", LEFTISTS GO BATSHIT AND EXPOSE THEMSELVES AS THE MADMEN THEY ARE

Yesterday after his Helsinki summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin President Trump announced that he saw no reason to believe that Russia would have meddled with the 2016 Presidential elections. This statement caused a complete meltdown of the Left. 

Trump was called a "traitor" by former Obama CIA chief and commie rat Brennan. Some Tennessee senator named Cohen (democrat) called for the military to step in and depose President Trump. His statement was called the equivalent of every disaster and atrocity from 9-11-2001 to the Kennedy assassinations to Pearl Harbor and even (WTF?) Kristallnacht, the Nazi pogrom that was a prelude to the Holocaust. 
\
The President let these fools percolate for about 24 hours before he explained that in an attempt to avoid a "double negative" in his speech he had misspoken and meant to say "WOULDN'T". 

We believe the President knew EXACTLY what he was doing and how these fools would react. We admit we were flummoxed at first, but then we decided to wait and see what President Trump had up his sleeve. Now these Lefties have been exposed as dangerous nutbars. Republicans may well have a more solid majority in the Senate as well as the House in November if the idiot Democrats keep talking like this. Keep it up, fools. Keep it up.

REMEMBER RYAN WHITE

Today marks the 33rd anniversary of the day 13 year old Ryan White got thrown out of school because he was infected with HIV. White had been diagnosed just six months before, and had been given only six months to live. As it finally turned out, Ryan lived to be 18 and passed from this world one month before he would have graduated high school.

Ryan was a native Indianan as am I. He was born in Kokomo and spent the majority of his short life there. He died in Indianapolis, where coincidentally I was born. 

Ryan was a hemophiliac; commonly known as a "bleeder"; and contracted HIV - then commonly called AIDS - from a tainted blood product. But in 1985 people were scared and many were fearful that AIDS could be transmitted via sneezing and coughing. And in a darker vein, crackpots believed that one had to be homosexual to catch the disease and believed that Ryan was gay and receiving "God's punishment in his body". A year-long court battle ensued, and Ryan was finally permitted to attend school again. 

That didn't end Ryan's battle. It was only the beginning. He was required to use separate restrooms and "excused" from gym with its requirement to shower with the other boys. He was also treated as a pariah by many. His story became national news. His family ultimately decided to move elsewhere when some ignoramus fired a bullet into his home in the dead of night.

The family moved to Cicero, Indiana where people were more educated and accepting. He quickly became an international celebrity and a spokesman for victims of his disease. Michael Jackson gave him a 1968 Mustang, Elton John lent his mother money for a down-payment for a house in Cicero and donated the re-payment to Ryan's sister's college fund. 

But Ryan always was emphatic that he would have very happily given up all this to be free of his disease. 

He contributed so much to the erasure of the ignorance and fear surrounding this poorly understood and feared virus. And he suffered so greatly. The actions of the people of Kokomo made me almost ashamed to be a native Indianan.

Ryan White made me proud to be a native of Indiana again.

At some point in this controversy the Washington City Paper wrote an article about Ryan and his struggle. In response I wrote a letter to the editor. An excerpt:

"And through all this, this brave young Hoosier displays the qualities of our finest young men, smiling and taking the blows of the disease and the harassment and court battles seemingly in stride. 

The Flag of the State of Indiana is a torch aflame surrounded by stars. The torch is Hope piercing the darkness of ignorance and despair. And the highest star today belongs to Ryan White."

I hope I meet you in Heaven, Ryan.

SHOW ME WHAT A REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC LOOKS LIKE

IN A RECENT DEMONSTRATION ABOUT IMMIGRATION AT THE HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING; AN ILLEGAL DEMONSTRATION AT THAT; AN INCREASINGLY COMMON CHANT WAS EMPLOYED. This chant, which may soon overtake the tired old "Hey hey! Ho ho! (insert what's pissing the rabble off) Has got to go!" Is this: 

A fat butt floppy tit four eyed dyke gets on a megaphone and shouts: "SHOW ME WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!" And the crowd, composed of ridiculously dressed or costumed disorderly rabble replies: "THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!"

Exactly. Democracy - direct democracy - is basically rule by mob. The biggest mob wins. It's two wolves and a lamb discussing what's for dinner. That's why the Founders who wrote the Constitution didn't provide a democracy. They provided for a Representative Republic with the executive and legislative members elected in a democratic process. 

The Republican Party believes in this. Increasingly, the Democrats tend to use the violent mob. That's why the parties have the names they have. 

Shut up, sit down and go vote in November and show me what a Representative Republic looks like.

NUTCASE WITH A SHOTGUN AND A GRUDGE SHOOTS AND KILLS 5, INJURES 2 AT NEWSPAPER OFFICE; LEFTIST MEDIA BLAME TRUMP, "ASSAULT WEAPONS"

ONCE AGAIN A KILLER ATTACKS A "SOFT TARGET", AND ONCE MORE THE LEFTIST MEDIA MAKE DEMANDS ABOUT GUNS AND TRY TO BLAME PRESIDENT TRUMP.

This is getting monotonous. A man who had been identified years ago as a potential threat attacked a small newspaper in Annapolis, MD. with a gun. No one in the office was prepared to deal with an armed threat even though they all knew the guy was deranged and a possibly lethal threat. He took a shotgun to the newspaper office and blew open the doors with a blast of buckshot and then fired away, leaving five dead souls and two injured before being stopped and taken alive by police. 

The left, including members of the newspaper staff, wasted no time in ... 

LAYING THE GROUND TO BLAME THESE KILLINGS ON PRESIDENT TRUMP. Their proof? The President:
(1) has called the Leftist media the enemy of America, allegedly encouraging and inspiring the killer; and
(2) has failed to support what these morons call "common sense gun control",thus enabling the killer.

The unhinged "tweets" and other public comment poured forth almost immediately. David Simon, former Baltimore Sun "journalist" and writer and producer of the (fair due excellent) HBO miniseries "The Wire" tweeted saying "Thanks a lot you fucking fascist moron". A "reporter" for the attacked paper, the Annapolis Capitol Gazette, who hid under her desk said that while she appreciates "thoughts and prayers" she needed "more than that" (meaning idiotic gun control measures which would not have stopped one iota of what went on) and if those were not forthcoming those thoughts and prayers were not worth a fuck. In so many words.

The tweets and other commentary along these lines has poured forth in a fast, furious stream of invective; unhinged, demanding and liberally laced with obscenities. 

But what really has them unhinged is that practically nobody believes these people anymore. 53% of DEMOCRATS think they are a pack of untrustworthy liars, 94% of Republicans and a whopping 78% of independent voters say the media are a pack of lying sacks of shit and not to be trusted. The media are in fact the propaganda arm of the American Statist Progressive (ASP) movement and report "fake news" all the time. And so what's the first thing they do when one of their propaganda offices gets shot up? Why, try to leverage the event to regain their "credibility".  And how do they try to do it? By spreading lies and idiocy and hyperbole with overblown appeals to emotion rather than reason. 

It's not working. The common man here in America fell for it for a while, you thought you had finally gained control of the national mindset; and then President Trump was elected and you got put on notice that nobody believes you anymore. And you try to counter that with more bullcrap that everybody is supposed to believe because five of you got murdered? 

Rotsa Ruck, ASPs. Here at the Alexandria Daily Poop, we of course offer our thoughts and prayers for the deceased and wounded and their families. We wish you would publish the names of the churches or organizations the deceased in particular belonged to so that donations might be sent to assist the grieving families. Why haven't you done that? Hmm?

DANICA PATRICK TO RACE AT INDY AGAIN! YOU GO, GIRL!

We are not in the habit of using phrases such as "You go, girl!". But this year's return of Danica Patrick - who has come closer than any female driver in Indy history to winning the race and is a superb Indy driver - has our admiration. We forget which race it was, but Patrick had to "Pit" several times, including once to replace a damaged nose cone on her car; and each time came roaring back to the front group of cars in the pack.  (That time, however she ran out of gas just as a pedal to the metal could have won the race.)

But after trying to win eight times, she went into a snit and took her act to NASCAR, a culture not particularly welcoming to woman drivers. We don't watch a lot of NASCAR but it's the only racing shown in most clubs we go to. And when Danica was racing on the TV in those watering holes, the fans wanted her off the track since she was always causing problems and wrecks. 

And we were upset with Patrick because all she had to do was learn a bit about fuel management and she could probably win. 

Now Danica Patrick is going to try for a win at Indy again. And if you are wondering why we're rooting for her, it's NOT because we think it's "time for a woman to win" or some such twaddle. Rather the fame she would gain from such a win could provide an inspiration for perseverance by our youth. And if she loses, tough. As long as she learns and applies that learning, she'll do better every year.  Go Danica! We'll be watching.

BE AWARE IN ALEXANDRIA! METRO MAKING PLANS TO TOTALLY SCREW THE POOCH IN 2019

We must say, even we could not come up with an idea more stupid than what the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Administration has come up with. First there was the "Safe track" project a couple years ago where they shut down whole lines for half a month to do inspections and repairs. Now they plan to completely redo the parking lot and bus facilities at the King Street Metro Station when there is nothing wrong with the way the station functions in its present configuration. But that's not the worst of it (although it will eliminate 32 parking spaces and really cheese off a lot of people). 

METRO PLANS TO COMPLETELY CLOSE DOWN EVERY METRO STATION IN THE CITY OF ALEXANDRIA AND HUNTINGTON AND SPRINGFIELD IN FAIRFAX COUNTY FROM MEMORIAL DAY 2019 TO LABOR DAY 2019 TO COMPLETELY DEMOLISH AND REDO THE STATION PLATFORMS AT A COST OF HALF A BILLION FUCKING DOLLARS even though these stations work perfectly well without spending all that money. 

This move will play havoc with Alexandria's summer tourist industry and the hospitality and restaurant industries that feed in its orbit. Not to mention the hordes of federal workers that don't take the summer off but have to work anyway. You should see the crowds on weekday mornings and evenings. There is no way in hell that shuttle buses will handle these crowds without majorly screwing up traffic between the shuttle points.

We have been riding Metro pretty regularly since we retired from the taxi business last March, and there is NOTHING WRONG WITH THE DAMNED STATION PLATFORMS! Certainly nothing that justifies a complete replacement of all of them at a cost of nearly half a billion dollars. 

We have often said here that we try to be cynical, but it's hard to keep up. This is a case in point.

In our opinion Metro is BLACKMAILING THE CITIZENS OF D.C., MARYLAND AND especially THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA by denying Metro service for three months to the unfortunate residents of Alexandria and vicinity. We think the intent is for everybody to be absolutely begging for tax increases to keep Metro running after they see an example of what happens when it's cut off.

Sure, there were cases of falling concrete at a few Metro stations in D.C.; but these were due to lazy inspectors just re-wording the previous year's reports and declaring everything to be okey-dokey. There is NO reason to replace these platforms, and the people's representatives should be throwing a fit; but these jurisdictions in Virginia are all run by Democrats; and Alexandria is a one-party show. Republicans rarely even bother to run, knowing that they would be neutralized by the rest of the City Council. 

There is a silver lining, we suppose. This may just outrage enough of the citizenry that Alexandria and vicinity turns Republican.  There's always hope.

NATIONAL POLICE WEEK 2018

The police officers from across America and their families are arriving in droves this weekend to observe National Police Week, when the contributions of our law enforcement professionals are commemorated.

I say "commemorated" because also arriving with them are the families of officers who made the Ultimate Contribution of their very lives. This week is a living memorial to them. 

One of the most emotionally impacting images I have ever seen is of a little boy of about ten years, at his father's funeral and wearing his father's service hat, trying to come to grips with why his father had to give his life in defense of ours and why what happened happened. 

I have tried to come up with an appropriate phrase for this occasion. For while part of the week will feature fun and entertainment, obviously "Happy Police Week" doesn't quite cut it. 

As I sit here in the lobby of the Old Town Hilton writing this, kids of families here for the occasion are ripping and tearing around as the adults distribute tote bags, pamphlets and stickers and agendas for the coming days. These are normal people with normal lives except for one thing: They put their lives on the line daily, and sometimes that line claims one of their number.

If you are one of them, I think I speak for just about everyone when I say "Thank You".  When I consider what you do, this seems wholly inadequate. Nevertheless, thank you.
