Thousands of lies and inaccuracies, beaucoup corruption, massive money-laundering ... America, where does it all end?

If there's one type of person you never should trust, it's a grifter. Anyone who cheats taxpayers out of their hard-earned money.

Grifters are also known as chiselers, defrauders, gougers, scammers, swindlers, and flim-flam men and women too.

What is the difference between grifters and thieves? Grifters make every effort to trick all of US out of money through lies, but the final result is simply the same old...

Es un Domingo Miguel Cohen para el presidente Donald Trump, ya que comenzó la mañana atacando a su ex abogado.

Recién después de un largo día y su largisimo discurso en la Conferencia de Acción Política Conservadora. El Comandante en Tweet continuó con los ataques de Cohen que comenzaron anoche.

Sin duda, esto se debe a los noticieros del domingo por la mañana, que se han centrado incansablemente en el testimonio de Cohen la semana pasada ante el Comité de Supervisión de la Cámara de Representantes.

Desiderio Alberto Arnaz y de Acha III better known as Desi Arnaz, Sr. or Ricky would have been 102 today. By the way, Desi also refers to an Indian individual. It meant country, but its usage shifted more towards referring to people, cultures, and products of a specific region.

Desi was the son of Dolores “Lolita” de Acha y de Socias, and Desiderio Alberto Arnaz. The Cuban-born American actor, musician, and television producer. He is best remembered for his role as Ricky Ricardo on my favorite sitcom #ILoveLucy.

Awful Lawful?

We can't see the forest for the trees is an expression used when details of a problem are overlooked. The Republican-controlled Congress has been too involved in the wording of bills that they couldn't see the forest for the trees.

By focusing on what is officially defined as illegal or criminal, while a more serious threat to democracy is left out. This threat is caused by predatory practices considered to be skirting the letter of the law, but have multiple adverse social consequences.
