Oil Disaster Spoils Arnold's Fun, Tennessee Floods, Washington Gets High

News


  • A meeting with Ronald Reagan, 1983.The Nightmare in the Gulf of Mexico claimed another victim Monday: Arnold Schwarzenegger's big plan to fund California's cash-starved state parks with offshore drilling along the coast where the most popular state parks are located. It was the kind of brilliant piss-everybody-off scheme that Schwarzenegger has excelled at during his seven years as governor. So the parks are still broke. For his bonus round, Arnold vetoed a popular bill that would've banned cigarette smoking on state beaches. Oh, and the "Governator" also made public his support for Obamacare and is fighting the oil industry's attempts to repeal California's alternative energy law. Everybody unhappy now? Good!

  • It will be awesome when DC makes "medical marijuana" legal, because then this whole District of Potheads can make up some ailment that requires the marijuana they already smoke all the time. Washington is the dopiest city in America! [Washington Post]

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
