Seven years

Posted By Jim Moscheck

Seven years we heard about from the GOP about sneaky Obama and the Dems ramming through the health care bill and their deficit hawks stating how we are mortgaging our children's and grandchildren's future by adding to the debt. Members here and even Herb kept posting the deficit clock for crying out loud. This got most of them elected.

Now with the tax bill there were no public hearings, there were illegible notes handwritten in the margins of the bill, every senator who was on the fence got pork barrels for their states, and it was voted during the darkness of a Friday night. Oh, and while we are at it punish NY, NJ, IL, CA, for having higher taxes than the other states. Fair and balanced just like your propaganda machine Fox News.

Hypocrites. Then little Marco Rubio let the cat out of the bag and blurts out the real master plan. Cut taxes for the rich, cry boo hoo hoo over the huge deficits that are piling up, and then cut SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. etc. etc. Fine future my granddaughter will have. :C

I'm really glad some of you are happy with who you elected president. I've even done well with my mutual funds.

Now we are at the point where the BLOTUS tweets my button is bigger than your button?

Sad.

Any defenders of a sanctioned Russian spy meeting

Posted By Jim Moscheck

With all the news being reported this more or less stuck in under the radar.

http://time.com/5126082/russian-spy-donald-trump-intelligence/

“This is a serious national security issue,” Schumer told reporters. “Russia hacked our elections. We sanctioned the head of their foreign intelligence, and then the Trump administration invites him to waltz through our front door. This is an extreme dereliction of duty by President Trump, who seems more intent on undermining the rule of law in this country than standing up to Putin.”


Why does Trump always capitulate when it comes to the Russians? Did they interfere in our elections or not? Wasn't mentioned in the SOTU speech.

Why aren't sanctions against Russia being enforced? Why are some Republicans now so against our FBI when usually they are the law and order party? Now they are willing to release classified surveillance information to not only purposely harm FBI and their FISA warrants but also the Mueller investigation. Ironically, they all recently voted to extend the FISA program for six more years.

DJT has committed treason

Posted By Jim Moscheck

Trump himself has said it's treasonous for not clapping and cheering for the president. Here's proof that Donny himself has committed treason:

Thank you Mr. Trump

Posted By Jim Moscheck

I’m sitting here at the Winter Star Party I want to say how really happy I am that the president signed an executive order last year making it easier for someone with mental problems to be able to buy guns and in this case another assault rifle. I’m sure all of the parents around the country and especially those those in Parkland Florida think so too.

Seriously, I agree with the sheriff there that something needs to be done about gun violence in this country.

“Mr. Weekes, the chief assistant public defender, said the lawyers were still trying to piece together the details of Mr. Cruz’s life. Mr. Cruz has a “significant” history of mental illness, according to Mr. Weekes, and is possibly autistic or has a learning disability.”

But hey, buying an AK15 is easier to buy in Florida than a handgun. I’m afraid this story, like ALL of the others, will just fade away until the next time.

Edited for grammar.

I feel so much better now.

Posted By Jim Moscheck

I'm so thankful our president would rush into a school with an active shooter. Without a gun. With bone spurs no less.

I say we call him Captain Courageous from now on. What can't he do? What an amazing leader. grin

Can we please talk about Trump?

Posted By Jim Moscheck


https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/01/europe/putin-russia-missile-intl/index.html

This is a test. We'll see what he says or does.

What do you all think Donny's response will be? Any cool nicknames he'll pin on Putin?

Try explaining this one to me Trump fans.

They even gave him a index card saying do not congratulate. Read the whole article.

I say there really is a pee video. What other explanation is there beside maybe finances?

Telescope "buggy"

Posted By Jim Moscheck

Try the MAPUG site.

Go to the member designs. There are quite a few versions of a scope transporter. I have an 8" LX200. I made mine out of 2 x 4's with over sized 3/4 plywood gussets on the top and bottom over the t joint. The top one serves as a shelf to store my power supply, iso pads, and dew shield. I just used 3 " casters for wheels. I also put in leveling carrage bolts in the ends. I spent $25.00 total and it works great.
