Political Events Over Next Few Days

RE: Political Events Over Next Few Days
We can hope the pundits will be wrong AGAIN!

"...what have the American people come to expect from every Congress: dysfunction, partisanship, hypocrisy, opportunism, chaos … Down, down, down the list spirals. For all his Who’s-your-daddy swagger and drain-the-swamp chatter, Donald Trump is unlikely to make much of a dent in this dynamic. (Some cultures are simply beyond help.)"

He is threatening to scale back the federal workforce 25%, which means a lot of the Clinton appointees will take early retirement to void being fired.

He will have to get the Obama loafers out using efficiency reviews, which is how they scale the officer corp down at the end of a war. Anyone that is not perfect, or ever had a reprimand at any point is out.

Probably the best way to get rid of Democrats in the burecracy is to check their resumes. 50% of them are probably bogus, do not have the education or experience they claim. Lying on a resume is always grounds for dismissa even if a person has been on the job for decades.

Perhaps a check-off block on the income tax form to donate $1 towards buying train tickets to Canada for the disillusioned "snowflakes" who promised before the election that they would leave the US if Trump was elected. We should assist those who cannot afford to leave, send them on their merry way and bid them good riddin's

I had to read this article TWICE to decide whether the author was being serious or if it was a humourous spoof...

Train tickets, Charles? Send 'em by Grayhound Bus!
If at first you don't secede, try, try again!

Wonder if the Chinatown bus will establish a new route up there?

Chinatown Bus Review – Stinks, Jumps Red Lights, Rattles, Erratic Schedules but Cheap, Mighty Cheap

Chinatown buses are largely an East Coast phenomenon in the U.S. Their principal claim to fame is that they ferry people between cities at prices so cheap that other forms of transport just can’t match them. These buses are run by Chinese immigrants and operate out of Albany, Boston, New York City, Queens (NYC), Atlantic City (and other casino centers), Philadelphia, Baltimore, Wilmington, Washington DC, Richmond, Raleigh and even as far as Atlanta and Orlando.

The buses usually start and stop by the kerbside in the Chinatown parts of the cities or in the city centers. The secondary claim to fame of Chinatown buses happens to be the two recent accidents that killed a bunch of people in NYC and injured a few on the New Jersey Turnpike in the second accident...

Stinking, Unpleasant -- The bus had a mild stench, the windows looked as if they were unwashed for a millennium and there was no WiFi or electrical charging points.

By the way, the new Greyhound buses and BoltBus have WiFi and electric outlets to charge your cell-phone/laptop. But fares in those buses are also more expensive.

You can’t carry heavy luggage inside the bus and they have to be stored in the luggage container (located on the right-hand side of the bus) before starting.

Seating was cramped and when the African-American woman in front of us pushed her seat back, we suffered for the entire trip. ?

After we settled ourselves, we looked around and found that the majority of travelers were Blacks (or African-Americans to be politically correct), followed by Hispanics, Asians (Chinese and Indians) and finally Whites. There were a couple of Indians on the onward trip and one on the return trip (that is apart from yours truly).

We were not happy when our driver jumped a red light on Rt-13 in Wilmington at the 495-intersection just minutes after we started off to NYC. Also, the bus was rattling.

Some of the aisle seats had plastic trash bags but others did not.

The bus has a toilet at the back but there was no toilet-paper. Really!

...By the way, if you want a copy of the ticket for your expense report then you’d better take a picture with your cellphone camera because the ticket attendant collects your ticket and does not return it.

Also, our seat’s arm-rest was broken during the return trip.

Cheap Fares -- On the whole, the Chinatown buses are not pleasant to travel in but, hey, you can’t beat the price.

Greyhound is more expensive and Amtrak trains are much more expensive. For instance, on Amtrak a one-way Wilmington (DE)-NYC ticket can cost between $55-$228 depending on the time, whether it’s Acela and when you book the ticket.

Just for the heck of it, we checked the Chinatown bus fare for NYC-Orlando (Florida), a distance of 1,100 miles and the ticket was jut $30! Un’f*cking’believable.

With their ticket prices so low and competing travel means unaffordable for many Americans, tis’ no surprise that Chinatown buses are doing a brisk business. On both our onward and return journey, the bus was about 80% full.

Chinatown buses, whether you can stand the stench or not, are here to stay.

I feel that any of them that choose to go to Canada, rather than to Mexico, are racist bigots!

They want our borders opened, they want sanctuary cites, but I have not heard of a single snowflake that wants to go to Mexico!

Hummm, after the goings on with the visit of PM May to Washington yesterday it is very apparent that Trump has never had dealings with a British survival forum.

He seems to still hold you folk in high regard!

RE: Political Events Over Next Few Days
The gradual weakening of the US educational system was/is by design, as has been the continual assault on American history, tradition and values. The roots of it go back to early Soviet planning on how to defeat the west, which they were planning even while they were still busy consolidating the revolution. (IIRC, the Whites didn't surrender until 1921.)

Anyway, Google 'Cultural Marxism' to start the educational journey.

And because of that we have been blessed with half a nation that does not know the meaning of the word TEMPORARY.
