    Congrats, Marleysperson! I am calling my Senators and Rep to loudly protest the hijacking of our national Independence Day celebration to turn it into a tRump campaign rally with tanks, planes, & helicopters. This is blatant misuse of taxpayer money and should violate campaign finance rules.

    SO many things piss me right the fuck off. This is from WaPo…and BJ

    The National Park Service is diverting nearly $2.5 million in entrance and recreation fees primarily intended to improve parks across the country to cover costs associated with President Trump’s Independence Day celebration Thursday on the Mall, according to two individuals familiar with the arrangement…

    The diverted park fees represent just a fraction of the extra costs the government faces as a result of the event, which will include displays of military hardware, flyovers by an array of jets including Air Force One, the deployment of tanks on the Mall and an extended pyrotechnics show. By comparison, according to former Park Service deputy director Denis P. Galvin, the entire Fourth of July celebration on the Mall typically costs the agency about $2 million.

    For Trump’s planned speech at the Lincoln Memorial, the White House is distributing VIP tickets to Republican donors and political appointees, prompting objections from Democratic lawmakers who argue that the president has turned the annual celebration into a campaign-like event.

    The Republican National Committee and Trump’s reelection campaign confirmed Tuesday that they had received passes they were handing out for the event.

    “We’ve never seen anything like this,” Sen. Tom Udall (N.M.), the top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on the interior, environment and related agencies, said in a phone interview. “No ticketed political event should be paid for with taxpayer dollars.”…

    By tapping entrance fees to cover the presidential event, Interior is siphoning money that is typically used to enhance the visitor experience either on the Mall or at smaller parks across the country, with projects ranging from road and bridge repair to habitat restoration. The transfer amounts to nearly 5 percent of the funds that less-profitable parks used last year for upgrades, according to budget documents.

    “This is a breach of trust with the public,” Theresa Pierno, president and CEO of the National Parks Conservation Association, said in an email. “The public pays parks fees to fix national parks and for educational programs, not the president’s parade.”…

    The “Salute to America” marks the culmination of Trump’s two-year quest to mount a military-style extravaganza inspired by his visit to a Bastille Day celebration in Paris in 2017. His previous efforts to stage a Veterans Day military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in 2018 were scuttled after estimated costs ballooned to the tens of millions of dollars…

      Meta, was this the San Francisco site? I have a ticket to attend with my son and his girlfriend there in October. I thought I was going this last March in Seattle, but that fell through. This time I got tickets early! I have already read the book and memorized the music on the CD to be ready for the first attempt. Bucket List!

      • July 3, 2019 at 9:13 pm

        Yes, I’m in SF. It was the most amazing experience in every way. So moving, challenging, life affirming and really simply beautiful. I recently had a birthday and my family gifted me with this ticket. It’s among the best gifts I’ve ever received.

        I have to admit I teared up a bit when Washington sings his declaration for not running for POTUS again (“One Last Time”). Mostly because I recall them singing this before in the WH with PBO sitting in the front row and nodding.

    As all of you know, I watched “Watergate” unfold, day by day while living in Georgetown, DC.

    This number is astonishing ….

    Had an Impeachment Process been underway these past three months Republicans would be under enormous pressure to dump Trump.

      Trump said long ago that he could shoot someone in broad daylight in times square and still get elected. Well he got elected, and his base and the Republican party are still backing him. Even with an impeachment I still don’t see his party dumping him.

    Watching CNN this morning they were talking about the Biden-Harris camp still at it concerning busing. They said that it seem like Harris position on busing were no different then Biden. Well I’ll be dam. Maybe some one saw it beside me.

    • 84 Don
      July 4, 2019 at 8:44 am

      “Overnight” is a lifetime in politics, and four years is generational. The sand under Bernie’s feet have shifted dramatically, even Joe Biden is making adjustments on the fly. Harris and Warren and maybe Castro are the only candidates that seem to have a firm grasp of what’s going on.

      • 85 Don
        July 4, 2019 at 8:55 am

        Don’t get me wrong, I still think that Joe is going to be a formidable opponent when it comes down to picking a Democratic challenger to Trump. I just don’t like the fact that with all of his experience he’s still making rookie mistakes.

        • 86 Hillary Darton
          July 4, 2019 at 9:05 am

          If Biden is not the nominee, my second choice is Warren. I am not a fan of Harris , that could change, but not right now.

          • 87 Don
            July 4, 2019 at 9:23 am

            I’d take any of the three that you mentioned. The thing about Warren and Harris is that they attack, and in these times that is what we might need. Joe comes from a generation that you could appeal to your opponent’s intellect and maybe win them over. Those days are long gone, now you need someone that isn’t overly concerned with appealing to an opponent’s intellect. Barack won by out thinking all his opponents, the environment at that time was conducive and receptive to someone that had good ideas about moving the country forward. America yearned for someone with brains, at this point in time America years for someone that is willing to get their hands “dirty’ to some extent. I’m not saying that Joe isn’t willing to get his hands dirty, but I know for a fact that Warren and Harris aren’t concerned about getting their hands dirty.

              Don, don’t anybody get me wrong, while I talk about who I like and don’t like, don’t anyone ever forget as I have said many times, My Main Goal, My Main Issue, ” is to defeat that lying racist bigot crook in the White House. I will support who ever is the Democratic nominee. I will tell anyone I was not please with Harris attack on Biden, because I feel if busing matter that much to her she would have brought it up during the eight years he was VP. Yes America want someone with brains, but I also want someone who has decency, morals, values, treating people like you want to be treated . I don’t want a female version of Trump.
