I hate the whole ‘100 days’ notion

A POTUS serves 1460 days in a term, yet we focus on the first ‘100 days’ as a standard that will speak for how those remaining days will go… That’s bullsh*t.

The Media’s love affair of a POTUS’ first ‘100 days’ is nauseating but it’s really the candidate’s fault for their exhaustive reporting. No I’m not mocking POTUS Donnie’s first 100 days. No I didn’t mock POTUS Barry’s first 100 days. But pundits eyes are rolling in the spin of offense/defense for their favorite son.

Yep, think about how many candidates have made the claim of what they plan to accomplish in those ‘100 days’ and how many never hit the mark even with both Congressional Houses in your pocket.

Yes a POTUS can accomplishment many things in ‘100 days,’ big or small, but it’s those issues they pushed on the campaign trail that has a pundit’s focus. Hell, Hannity kept a ticker on his FOX show of “Promises Broken” for POTUS Barry’s first ‘100 days.’ Was it fair then? Is it fair now?

So who do we blame for this trend? Well we gotta go back to #32, Frankie Roosevelt because he is the originator of all this hoopla.

POTUS Frankie came in with a breathe of fresh during the Great Depression; people were orgasmic of a new face, new idea, a constant smile, and yes he pushed many plans in those with the backing of a Congress that would do anything. And right there is the reasoning of the media madness of a POTUS’s beginnings.

It’s like a new puppy; they make you happy when you are sad, they cheer you up and make you feel warm. And a new POTUS is just like that; new ideas, lots of (ass) kissing that makes people want to go out and buy/sell/trade that makes business owners have a new skip, but just like a new puppy, a new POTUS can shit on the rug one too many times that you become glum and want to rub their nose it.

OK that might be a bit extreme, but then again that’s what Media (sorry majority of people don’t get their news from Media any longer it’s all commentator and pundit driven).

Candidate Donnie’s promises of ‘yuge’ accomplishments that will happen in his first ‘100 days’ have u-turned as those countdown now that he is POTUS. Yeah everyone can dream, but when people put their hops in your dreams you better produce.

That’s not saying POTUS Donnie hasn’t produced, yes he has, some for the good/bad and that’s par for the course but does he have a handicap too which I’m talking about Congress?

You would think with Congress and POTUS sharing the Party logo they can do whatever their hearts desire, but some within the party refuse to give and too me that’s a good thing. We do not need good little boys and girls that fall in line because it’s the right thing to do. No, we need people that will question and work with opposition to get things accomplished; keeping a hardline stance only creates gridlock and we’ve had way too much of red light sitting.

I expect a POTUS to work with ALL Congress to accomplish task, to be a referee, to be an arbitrator, to wheel and deal, so if that person needs to flip-flop then so be it.

So take your first ‘100 days’ and shove it. Get to work, Get it done. Be the dealmaker you claim to be, ya got 1360 days left on the job

That’s it, poor a ‘yuge’ coffee kegger and get the day rollin’

Where is the 'War on Easter'?

I was just thinking "why is there no 'War on Easter'" argument (or at last one I never heard of)?

There's always a 'War on Christmas' and, well not to be a d*ck, we're Americans we need to commercialize and profit from every holiday possible. Well except Sept 11.

Kids know more about the Easter Bunny and expect Easter baskets full of candy while searching for plastic eggs filled with... more candy! Nothing sounds more Easter-like than cannibalizing the ears off a Chocolate bunny, yet many Christians are silent, why?

Where is Bill O’Reilly leading the charge?

OK I’m not gonna go into the whole O’Reilly scandal, that’s for another day, but Billy is visiting the Vatican this week in celebration of Easter. But, nope, there are no protests in front of schools for not holding an Easter pageants like they would if the school had not for Christmas. No complaints about it being referred to Spring Break on the school calendar.

Hell even the Congressional calendar doesn’t even note the week off as Easter/Spring break but as “District work week.”

Nope everyone will be joyous and posting pics of little Timmy/Susie all dressed in pastels matching outfits on social media or planting tulips and mulching the yard after another dreary winter.

Yep, Easter just another gift giving, food fest, “Big Sale” weekend that lost it’s meaning

That’s it, slap the tap on some Osterbier and pay your political tab.

CHEERS! And Happy Easer from the Politically Brewed Crew

Weren’t we already done this pot-hole plagued road before?

I watched some of POTUS Donnie’s Trade Conference on CNN this afternoon and I can’t complain about his Infrastructure Initiative, I mean as long as it doesn’t falter as POTUS Barry’s “shovel ready” plan did. And when I say falter I’m talking about how poorly executed POTUS Barry’s project was even though in the end there were some results.

Hey $1 trillion bucks is YUGE! But can we, the taxpayers, afford to pony up more cash?

Yes all construction jobs are short term solutions when any type of government is involved, but what do we get as an investment?

Sure these projects put money in someone’s bank, puts food on the table and keeps the roof above one’s head, but in the end, it’s still a short term solution in helping a struggling economy as those paychecks being spent ain’t gonna equate to a $1 trillion payout.

I complained under POTUS Barry’s plan that patching potholes and duct taping bridges only goes so far and how, especially in the Northeastern US, we must put massive effort into rebuilding a wobbly electric grid and push towards fiber-optic networking. That and I’m a proponent of nuclear energy as well (Shush with coal is the future talk).
Yes I’m giving POTUS Donnie some props for his Infrastructure idea and of course his visual aides were fantastic.

Yes breaking down and cutting red tape makes sense, but there has got to be Government oversight of sorts because, well, I wanna make sure the cement wasn’t mixed with the consistency of silly puddy. And of course these short term jobs, whether it be a highway repave or a wind turbine and yes even building a wall, are employing American workers and those companies bending those rules are properly fined or contract cut.

Sound ok to you POTUS Donnie? Give me a shout and we can discuss this further than the “YES” folks surrounding you

Slap the political tap and enjoy that Ragin’ Bitch because life is about to get a bit more expensive
