Fewer Hispanics

Problem

The first Latina elected to Congress, Republican Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen announced that she's retiring after more than three decades in elected office.

Ros-Lehtinen became the first GOP member of the House to support same-sex marriage. She proposes legislation making US funding for the UN contingent on extensive reform. Her bill will also call for the United States to withdraw from the UNHRC, and she says that Israel is the only country on the council's permanent agenda, while abuses by rogue regimes like Cuba, China, and Syria are ignored.

First Best or Last Worst?

Idea

President George Washington was home-schooled until he was 16 years old, at which point he went to map out the boundaries of Virginia.

In 1752, he inherited his family's fortune. Though he had over 100 slaves, he was disliked the practice of slavery and often did manual labor on his land.

In 1753, Washington, a major in the Virginian militia, attacked the French and Indians. After he returned from the skirmish, he married Martha Dandridge Custis, a wealthy widow, which made him one of the wealthiest leaders in the state.

TGF Force

Issue

This is more powerful than TGIF. NASA scientists see Fermi Catches Gamma-ray Flashes from Tropical Storms. It occurs a thousand times a day when thunderstorms fire off fleeting bursts of some of the highest-energy light naturally found on Earth.

100 Dazed and Confused

Announcement

Who decreases our US credibility, creates an unsafe environment, downgrades public education, sells the public lands, monetizes the presidency, makes Americans less safe and more despised around the world, while achieving little following a series of theatrics which includes rallies to attack dissenters?

This, I can tell you... Believe me... This is my pledge to you... Donald Trump’s Contract with America.

99 Days Of The Wall

Attraction
Images: 

There is an anonymous folk song dating to the mid-20th century referring to beer, and not bricks. But there is a fictional story about a wall that Trump first claimed Mexico would pay for a build, then said US taxpayers would be billed and now who knows what will happen?

No more bricks for the wall, no more talk of a wall? Go to the store and buy some more, 99 days but no bricks on his wall.

Reversals or Refusals?

Idea

As White House officials frantically spin and sprint towards the "100 Days" goal, are there issues which have been reversed or rejected? You betcha, as one so-called friend likes to say.

First, comes one statement and then there is an opposite one to flip flop the initial one.

Principle's Office

Idea

The President has reported to the principle's office immediately since he is desperately seeking any substantial legislative activity before his self-imposed 100th days in office deadline.

He now plans to unveil the outline in principle of proposed tax reforms plan while Congress is concerned about the budget deficits. White house toppers refuse to discuss the details, only to say they seek to cut the corporate tax rate and simplify the tax codes.

TRUMP'S 100 NAYS

President Trump has no healthcare, no wall, no tax plan, no infrastructure plan, no financial regulation plan, no trade deals and he has no budget to submit to members of Congress.

May some folks be wondering to themselves have his 30+ executive orders been signed with class or crass? The real question everyone should be asking is what has he done so far for the people of The United States of America?

President Obama Returns

Issue

He's back, Barack Hussein Obama II. The former President chose the University of Chicago in his first public appearance since leaving The White House. As expected, he handled himself like a pro.

President Obama said warned that political gerrymandering is preventing the country from tackling problems like economic inequality, a broken criminal justice system and climate change.

Criminal Justice Reform

Problem

President Trump and DOJ Topper Sessions have fired a warning shot about the imminent danger posed by the so-called rising crime rate. Their fear factors will chill bipartisan attempts to reduce incarceration at the federal, state, and local levels. This scare administration tactic calls into question the trans-partisan nature of decades-long efforts.
