Donald Trump’s least favorite thing in the world is happening again: President Obama is acting “unpresidential.”
Yes, apparently the president has offended Trump once again with his wild behavior and lack of manners. What did he do this time, you ask?
He walked off a plane.
“The way President Obama runs down the stairs of Air Force 1, hopping & bobbing all the way, is so inelegant and unpresidential. Do not fall!”

Just in case you forgot who Trump is/was.
President Reagan adminstration brought in the ‘Helen Keller Republicans’:
When the House voted in September to cut $40 billion from the federal food-stamp program over 10 years, all but 15 Republicans supported the measure while not a single Democrat did so.
But according to a TIME analysis of county-by-county food-stamp-enrollment data compiled by the nonprofit Feeding America, it appears that House Republicans represent more districts with high levels of participation in the program than House Democrats.
Of the 350 congressional districts in which TIME was able to estimate the percentage of people enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), 76 had levels of 20% or higher.
Of those, 43 are held by Republicans while 33 are controlled by Democrats. (whoops!)
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
Raising the Minimum Wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour isn’t going to FIX the problem, but it will certainly HELP.
Another thing to definately HELP is to Vote BLUE in 2014!
EARLSBORO, Okla. – Rafael Cruz, father of Texas Senator and Tea-Party favorite Ted Cruz, spoke recently against atheism and secular humanism at a gathering of an Oklahoma Second Amendment advocacy group. He claimed that the belief systems are two of the main ills facing our society, that they lead to sexual perversion, sexual abuse, and the complete loss of hope, and that people following these two views should be rounded up and placed in special ‘camps’ to keep them separated from the rest of America.
“If there is no God, then we are ruled by our instincts,” he said. “Of course, this leads us, when there are no moral absolutes, leads us to sexual immorality, leads us to sexual abuse, leads us to perversion and, of course, no hope. No hope!”
“It’s a free country,” he said. “If these people need to practice their holy rites of atheism, they can do so, as long as they are in clearly-marked encampments far away from the rest of us.”
“While they’re in their Heathen Zones, they’re free to dance naked around the fire, brand the mark of the Devil on their flesh or whatever else they want to do,” he added.
“Of course, if they step one foot outside the electrified fence we shoot them between the eyes. Two or three times, just to be sure.”
He also argued that any children spawned in these camps would be removed at birth so they would not be drawn into secular humanism via their birth-mother’s tainted breast milk.
Senator Ricky Cruz’s reaction on learning he can shoot the heathens between the eyes; two or three times just to make to sure.
Gawd, do we live in a great country, or what!

At a time when many states and cities are working passing minimum wage increases, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) has gone in the opposite direction and signed a law banning cities from passing higher wages.
The ALSO bans them from enacting paid sick days or vacation requirements.
The law will stymie the efforts of activists in Oklahoma City, where a labor federation has led the push on a petition to raise the city’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. The state’s current minimum has been set at the federal level of $7.25. In 2012, 64,000 workers in the state earned $7.25 an hour or less, making up 7.2 percent of all hourly workers, a larger share than the 4.7 percent figure for the country as a whole.
Fallin said she signed the bill out of the worry that higher local minimum wages “would drive businesses to other communities and states, and would raise prices for consumers.”
She also argued that “most minimum wage workers are young, single people working part-time or entry level jobs” and that “many are high school or college students living with their parents in middle-class families.”
‘Happy Days’ was a fictional TV sitcom which ended in 1984 – THIRTY YEARS AGO!
FACT: But that’s not what the typical American minimum wage worker looks like.
- Nearly 90 percent of workers who would be impacted by an increase in the wage are older than 20, while the average age is 35.
- More than a quarter have children to support.
More than half work full time, and 44 percent have at leas t some college education, while half a million minimum wage workers are college graduates.
