Me, smart, too

Florida’s Freshman Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) doesn’t mention University excellance, his GPA’s, SAT scores, or any scholastic accomplishments…he is just a good ol boy…

Mere minutes after getting sworn in he grabbed the mic and commenced to make a fool of himself.

All the world is watching and laughing at Little Matt

What is wrong with this Picture?!

    

A Two-man company, in tiny town Montana

 got a $300 million Puerto Rico Contract

…directly connected  to Trump officials and  GOP donors.

Can you spell Zinke?

The bizarre decision to instead hire a tiny for-profit company is drawing heavy scrutiny from Congress

and comes amid concerns about bankrupt Puerto Rico’s spending as it seeks to provide relief to

its 3.4 million residents,

the great majority of whom remain without power a month after the storm.

#45 tapped Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke, who was raised in Whitefish, to be the nation’s next Secretary of the Interior,

He is responsible for (mis)  management of federal land and natural resources.

The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority recently signed the contract with Montana’s Whitefish Energy…  At the time, the firm had  two full-time employees. The contract was awarded without a competitive bidding process.

Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s largest city, described the Montana company as inadequate and said there appears to be a lack of “due diligence” behind the contract.

Skipping a reunion? Don’t even think about it

“Class reunions are the most important events to man”  Sartre

“Maybe by the 50th,

with all their FRICKIN’ grandkids born,

their PRECIOUS traveling done,

and their SOB STORY surgeries completed,

THEY’LL GRACE US WITH THEIR PRESENCE.”

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

Paul Ryan – angry at old people – to decimate Medicare?

grandparents-1054311__340

Is millionaire Paul Ryan is angry at his parents, grand parents

and his in-laws? Or, just all old people?

 

Paul Ryan, 42, was born into one of the most prominent families in Janesville, Wis.     The son of a successful attorney and the grandson of the top federal prosecutor for the western region of the state.

Ryan grew up in a expansive Colonial house on a large wooded lot, and his extended clan includes investment managers, corporate executives and owners of major construction companies.                                    

He lived a very comfortable life.

In the year after his father’s death, Ryan’s grandmother set up the Ryan-Hutter Investment Partnership, with assets of up to half a million dollars, according to the congressman’s 2011 financial disclosure. Ryan continues as the general partner running the entity for the family.

By the time Ryan had entered Congress in 1999 at the age of 28 and filed his first disclosure statement, he reported assets between $167,000 and $1.3 million, owned a home and had three rental units.

Mr. Ryan reported two tax-deferred college savings plans, with a combined value of between $150,000 and $300,000. He also reported two investment partnerships worth, in total, between $350,000 and $750,000, mostly containing shares of stock in well-known companies, including Apple, Goodrich, Kraft Foods, Visa and Whole Foods.

Both partnerships were formed by Mr. Ryan and other family members to manage assets left by his grandparents and an aunt. Mrs. Ryan has reported receiving a trust after her mother died in 2010 that is valued between $1 million and $5 million, according to a letter Mr. Ryan filed with his latest financial disclosure.

Mrs. Ryan also has longstanding interests in several mining and oil exploration investments in Oklahoma and Texas managed by her father, Dan Little, a lawyer in Oklahoma whose clients include oil and gas companies.

Those investments generated as much as $150,000 in income last year.

Of the Ryans’ maximum estimated assets of $7.6 million,

Janna’s holdings account for about $6.5 million. She is the daughter of Dan and Prudence Little, two lawyers in Madill, Okla., who over the years have overseen a vast network of land and oil and gas mineral rights in the Red River area straddling southern Oklahoma and northern Texas.

Why is he so vindictive? Does he have a long list of “his parents didn’t buy him the bike he wanted, he got punished for bad grades, or he caught caught cheating and stealing from the collection basket?”

Paul Ryan is so out of touch.

He wants to delete Medicare.

Ryan can drop the altar boy facade. He  is a classic “Thou doth protest too much” attack dog politician with ulterior motives.

45’s Puerto Rico Golf Course…

Puerto Rico has been decimated and millions are without power. But companies are stalling so that they can take advantage of this disaster to privatize the electric grid.

This is despicable. Puerto Rico needs relief now. Tell Congress to act now to pass a special aid and relief package: http://sc.org/2fsTwYA

Mother Nature is not happy.

 

We are running out of time.

There are too many people chomping at the bit to destroy our planet

“All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.”
