Black Caucus won’t go, either

I don’t believe this is coincidence, or just disgruntled Black Caucus members.

I believe this is part of the leftwing attempts to make Trump look as bad as they can.

THIS INVITATION they turned down, they say, was a ‘social event,’ but nowhere in the article does it say that’s the case.

If you want things done, why not accept an invitation to meet with the president?   Why not demand he discuss your concerns?  Who do they think they are, football or basketball players?

This is all about GET TRUMP, in my humble opinion.

The hate is palpable…..some deserved, most not.

CAN TRUMP TURN THIS AWFUL DISRESPECT AROUND?

    Nothing Trump will do, or can do, will in any way affect the black marxist agenda. The fact is that these people marginalize themselves; I for one could not be happier.

    Mustang, did you hear about this? “The actor Johnny Depp has become the latest American entertainment figure to suggest — however jokingly, ironically or obliquely — the killing of President Trump.

    Speaking on Thursday at the Glastonbury arts festival in southwest England, Mr. Depp asked the audience, “Can you bring Trump here?”

    The remark was met with booing and jeering, and he continued: “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while and maybe it’s time.””

    So, apparently Depp and all his London sycophants (so easy to speak like this outside the US) think he should kill Trump? And nothing’s done about it?
    The fact that people like this make THAT much money for ‘lying,’ as he says, and gets such attention and ego-building, and can say this with no consequences sometimes causes me to lose faith.

  4. You made me read Yahoo again.
    “The Congressional Black Caucus turned down an invitation to meet with President Donald Trump, telling him Wednesday they believe their concerns are falling on “deaf ears” at the White House”
    My interpretation:
    “You’re not listening to me”
    “Come talk to me”
    “No. You’re not listening to me”
    My interpretation is meaningless, the average takeaway is “Trump is a racist.”
    That it the intent.

    “STUDY GOP ATTITUDES TOWARD BLACK PEOPLE HARDENED”!!

    I guess my post proves it, because I believe if the Caucus would just TALK realistically and reasonably to Trump, they’d see he’s not racist,he believes in opportunity for ALL..
    Somehow, they don’t seem fond of the Opportunity For All part…

    Apparently, because Trump called the group a “threat” and that “a lot of people feel that it is inherently racist,” Republicans have jumped to those conclusions themselves…them not being able to think without Trump’s input, right? (smile)

    Well, I BELIEVE BLACKS HAVE HAD IT VERY HARD IN THIS COUNTRY WITH SLAVERY AND DISCRIMINATION OVER THE YEARS, I BELIEVE MANY MAKE IT BEAUTIFULLY NOW IN THIS COUNTRY (AND I KNOW AND LOVE SEVERAL), AND I BELIEVE IF MORE OF ALL AMERICANS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF EDUCATION AND HARD WORK, WE’D ALL BE BETTER OFF….
    if that’s racist…I’m sorry for the label, but that’s what I believe……..

    But . . . as for the fast food and pro sports, I remain firm.

    Much, and I mean MUCH, of our national health crisis could be eliminated if we rid ourselves of the constant overt and subliminal suggestions to gorge ourselves on deep-fried cholesterol and refined sugars.

    Sports . . . haven’t watched a pro NBA game since Bill Russell was center for the Celtics or a MLB game since Dale Murphy was in CF for the Braves or an NFL game since Joe Montana was QB for the 49ers.

    Cheese, along with red meat, was right near the top of verbotens from the nurses at cardiac rehab after my MI, so I have no use for pizza, burgers, fries, po’k chops, ice cream, or anything else that tastes good.

    And I drink very little coffee, NONE of which I pay more than half a buck a mugful for (Keurig machine).

    Weapons? Got a 20 gauge Remington, a .22 Mauser, a .22 Hombre (pistol), a S & W .38, and a .30 cal Winchester bolt action. Brought home a lotta squirrels, quail, pheasant, rabbit, and a few deer over the years, shot a lotta skeet and trap, but never needed a full auto. Shot a few while on AcDu, but can’t afford the ammo for ’em.

    Figure by the time average citizens need automatic weapons for self-defense, you can turn out the lights and call in the dogs ’cause the party’s already over . . . viz, Chicongo.

    The irony of my life in terms of cuisine is that my wife is a guh-RATE cook. Just has that knack of how high to put the fire, how long to stew the meat, how easy to go on the seasonings. In fact, she’s the major contributor to my hypercholesterolaemia . . . besides my own self-indulgence, of course.

    As with all Southeast Asians, her dishes most often begin with garlic and onion sauteed in porkbelly, chopped onions, vinegar, and soy sauce . . . eggZACKly what the nutrition specialists tell me exacerbate my GERD.

    So what I’ve done is delude myself into believing that BocaBurgers taste good if seasoned properly and buried under thick slices of yellow onion and beefsteak tomato, that chicken thighs taste good once the skin is removed and they’re done up with taters ‘n’ peas ‘n’ all, that green tea tastes just as good as sweet tea, and that two eggs — NEVER FRIED — a month are quite sufficient.

    Milady makes me some very nice apritada and caldereta and menudo with all the skin and visible fat removed from the chicken or the beef, no pork. She also knows how to make grilled pampano acceptable (I dislike almost all forms of seafood, especially crustaceans), and makes a very nice chicken mungo. So I s’pose those are my favorite main dishes these days.

    And for a treat, about once every 4months or so I make a pot of chili with lean beef and 5 different kinds of beans. If I don’t eat it too often, I suffer no upper GI distress, and a pot makes about 6 servings for me, so I get a small bowl about once a month.

    Bottom line is that I have a severe pizza deficiency, a chronic steak shortage, a massive pork chop privation, and a critical dearth of sinigang na baboy. The flip side is that my weight stays right around 170, my LDL is consistently under 100 while my overall cholesterol never gets over 140, and my GERD no longer interrupts my sleep. And after the life I’ve pursued, that ain’t bad for a guy headed toward 77.

    So, where were these Black folks when Obama failed them right and left? Are they better off today with higher unemployment, etc? He proved he didn’t care a rip for them.
    Bocopro, one more item i might add to your list…..Health Insurance! I’m convinced we were much better off without it, esp. when you consider the HUGE expense of having to cover the insurance companies and their payroll, etc. PLUS THEIR GIGANTIC PROFITS. That goes for Medicare, also. It has to be extremely costly. Everything would be a whole lot cheaper w/o it. Doctors and hospitals are not going to turn you away. Period!
