Veteran's Weekend. Thinking of beginning my research on a paper dispelling the popular belief that Trump invented Agent Orange.
Starting to get my second wind. Americans gave the government to Republicans. I get it. Now no more excuses! Fulfill your promises! Make OUR lives better, not just yours. All Americans. Show us what you got! We are not billionaires and we can't get out of paying our taxes. SHOW us how well you can spend our money! Improve OUR lives.
Is it just me? Or are you also getting a little tired of old people moving around so slowly? Come on! The rest of us have places to go, things to do, governments to blame, medicine to buy, naps to take.
Sometimes I wish I had served in the military. It would be nice if someone thanked me for SOMETHING. I feel silly putting on my explorer scout uniform on Veterans' day.
Easy there Trump. Not too many familiar political faces. DRAIN the swamp, don't just re-stack it with same old hacks.
Haircut. I think the gal that cuts my hair has a crush on me. She sold me some really nice smelling shampoo. I read the fine print when I got home and it says it's guaranteed "to temporarily postpone the smell of death."
There is a story out of my old stomping grounds of Lafayette, Louisiana (where I lived during my judicial clerkship on United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit). A female student at the University of Louisiana reported that she was attacked by a man in a white Donald Trump cap and another men. She said that the men hit her with a metal object, ripped off her hijab and took both her wallet and the traditional Muslim head-covering. The incident caused a national outrage but it now turns out that she made up the entire incident after police became suspicious of account.

Among Texans, race is on for jobs in Trump administration
Four Texans — including former Gov. Rick Perry and Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller — are being mentioned most often as potential members of a Trump administration.
Michael Bloomberg is back with his Big Gulp obsession. Years ago, I wrote a series of columns contesting the legality and the logic of his ban on sugary drinks, which were later struck down by the courts.Now he has successfully targeted my home city of Chicago with a $1 million contribution to pass a heavy tax on sugary beverages in Cook County and it appears that it may pass. While I agree with the sentiment (and we try to keep sugary drinks away from our kids except on rare occasions), I view these laws as ineffective, regressive, and paternalistic. The tax passed yesterday by a close vote.
She stopped her car, rolled down the window, and said, "Please don't jump! Think of your dear mother and father."
He replied, "My mom and dad are both dead; I'm going to jump."
She said, "Well, think of your sweet wife and precious children."
He replied, "I'm not married, and I don't have any kids."
She said, "Well, then you just remember the Alamo."
He replied, ''What's the Alamo?''
She replied, ''Well bless your heart ...just go ahead and jump you little Yankee bastard
