Let the sun shine!

Amazon Prime added HAIR this weekend. Of course I cried watching it. Thousands of American soldiers died. Hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese died. And many still live crippled by what our nation did. The United States government still doesn’t own up to Agent Orange, the genetic poison crippling folks in that Asian land.

Politicians in both political parties collaborated for decades until the grassroots revulsion against that war forced an end. And, please, don’t delude yourself into thinking the current scumbag in the White House wouldn’t be greedy enough to buy a bagfull of “patriotic” votes to stay in office – and roll out the profits of another war to fund all the corporate help he could ever wish for.

Watch the clip. Watch the film if you’ve never seen it. If you lived it as I did – shed a tear for the loss of Aquarius and the thousands murdered in the name of The Land of the Free.

Is Ryan Zinke corrupt, incompetent, or both?

Trump’s flunkey running the Department of the Interior falls over his own feet more often than Gerald Ford ever did…building his collection of political screw-ups.

Believe it or not, not everyone pays as much attention to goings on at the Department of the Interior as we do. But you know what will get mainstream media to pay attention? A tale as good as this one.

Emily Atkin, from The New Republic, did a great job providing a timeline:

The best part is the incident kicking off the independent Inspector General’s investigation into corrupt practices by Ryan Zinke.

New Interior Dept IG report says Secretary Zinke sought to designate his wife an agency volunteer to obtain free, taxpayer-funded travel and that he neglected to get permission from ethics officials when he took campaign donors on a boat trip.https://www.politico.com/story/2018/10/18/zinke-wife-interior-dept-probe-914313…

The report revealed that Interior spent $25,000 to send a security detail on vacation with Ryan and Lola Zinke when they traveled.

Our Fake President is NOT draining the swamp, he’s digging a quagmire of stupidity, corruption and incompetence that will take American taxpayers years to pay off.
