Assuming we Americans were sane on September 10, 2001…which is far from a slam dunk……the chances of any of us being sane after those buildings came down……is zero………. not to forget the plane that flew into the Pentagon and the other into a field in Pennsylvania…… ZERO………we have and have had clinical depression on a mass scale…….. unfocused anger of the …..   it ain’t going away ……variety………

We’re pretty much Cuckoo For Cocoa Puffs……… always spoiling for a fight and looking for any way to vent…….. and it shows……..

YOU ARE HERE ROCK HARDPLACEToday’s political campaign moments included the long awaited melding of the Clinton and Sanders campaigns…..with Hillary standing next to Bernie….doing a bobble head doll imitation while Bernie tried to make his concessionary endorsement sound believable……  there’s really no discounting what he accomplished and the truthful voice he gave to the inequalities and systematic controls inflicted on the vanishing middle class….and much much more……. his concession was described as “full hearted” which is apparently the little sister of “full throated”…..which would have been better……..

……many are hoping that he can convince his followers… by his words and actions… that they should campaign and vote for Hillary Clinton.BACKWARD BERNIE

 

………. also from the political desk today ……..was the man child with the big mouth, little hands…..and a self declared… large package……the donald…………deciding who is going to run with him in the VP slot on the GOP ticket……current finalists……..Chris Christie…..another bloated bully…………Mike Pence…..who after the Supreme Court of the United States upheld the Affordable Care Act on June 28, 2012, Pence, in a closed door meeting, said that the ruling upholding the health care law was similar to the September 11 terrorist attacks…………….Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III…….Alabama goober who said he thought the Klan was “OK until I found out they smoked pot.”…..and Newt Gingrich….current Pillsbury Doughboy spokesman……whose trouble with women rivals Bill Cosby’s……..

GOP VP GOOBERS

 

 

 

It’s enough to make a grown man cry.

It won’t be long now ……….the GOP Cleveland is going to be a fiasco…………by the by….have you seen who’s NOT going to Cleveland?……..nobody named Bush …….and a bunch of other GOP big shots, medium shots and no shots at all…..Jack Nicklaus thought better of it…….has a busy schedule……that he must have forgotten about….having earlier agreed to appear …….which doesn’t let him off the hook…..but that’s another deal…

CNN reports…..from Washington

Mitt Romney won’t attend the Republican National Convention this summer, joining three previous nominees in skipping the event and underscoring the deep divide inside the GOP over Donald Trump becoming the party’s standard-bearer.

An aide to Romney said Thursday that the former Massachusetts governor would not go, despite accepting the nomination at the convention four years ago.
With Trump as the party’s presumptive nominee, whether to attend the convention has become the latest front in an internal party struggle over how to handle the billionaire businessman’s role in the GOP.
A spokesman for former President George W. Bush said yesterday that he would not be attending and a spokesman for his former President George H.W. Bush said he would not attend either. Jeb Bush, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination, told CNN earlier this year that he would not attend the convention.
Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican nominee, announced last month he was skipping the convention. The only other living former Republican nominee, Bob Dole, will attend the convention, his spokeswoman told CNN.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, who also serves as chairman of the Republican National Convention, encouraged fellow members of his party to attend. And a spokesman for former House Speaker John Boehner also said he would attend.
But Ryan said Thursday he wasn’t quite ready to endorse Trump.
“I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now,” the Wisconsin Republican told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview, making him the highest-level GOP official to reject Trump since the real estate mogul became the presumptive nominee.
Trump said Thursday he doesn’t care if the former Republican nominees attend the convention.
“When I hear that they are going to sit it out, I think that’s fine I don’t care if they sit it out,” Trump said on CNBC. “But I have tremendous support, in fact even politically you see that so many people are now coming out in support and we are going to have some people that aren’t going to want to play the game and that’s okay. I mean if they don’t want to, I don’t think it matters.”
Of the prominent former Republican presidential hopefuls this primary season, none reached by CNN Thursday were able to definitively say they were planning to attend the convention.
A spokesman for Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who’s supposed to be a delegate from Kentucky, said they hadn’t yet released July’s schedule.
A spokesman for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said he’d “most likely attend” the Cleveland gathering.
“Governor Huckabee will most likely attend the convention although no final plans have been set,” spokesman Hogan Gidley told CNN.
Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for Ted Cruz, told CNN she’s “Not in a place to announce anything but happy to keep you posted.”
Trump has started efforts to unify the party, saying after he became the presumptive nominee Tuesday night, “This has been an amazing evening. … I didn’t expect it. And what Ted (Cruz) did is really a very brave thing to do and a great thing to do because we want to bring unity to the Republican Party. We have to bring unity.”
Trump is also set to meet with his supporters in Congress soon.
But the party remains scarred and fractured as Republicans prepare to take on their likely Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
A missive from first-term Republican Sen. Ben Sasse seeking a conservative to run against Trump and Clinton quickly lit up Facebook shortly after it was posted early Thursday morning. Sasse’s staff has since said he’s not interested in doing a third party run.
