Our Captain Ahab hides in his quarters for the duration of the Veteran’s Day observances. While some would say that he is grieving the loss, they would also say many other astounding things about the Commander In Chief.
Time to face the fact that we are dealing with an odd duck. For all the commentary, we don’t think anyone really knows him, probably because he does not know himself.
President Trump is spending Monday at the White House and had no plans to visit Arlington National Cemetery in northern Virginia as America observes the Veterans Day holiday.

Democrats breathed a sigh of relief when it was learned that Liz Cheney wants to be a leader of the House GOP.
“I’ve got a hunting dog who has better leadership skills. And the dog can fetch!”, said one Democrat.
From The Houston Chronicle
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – Liz Cheney has had a quiet first term as congresswoman, but that’s about to change. She’s seeking a House Republican leadership post that’s key to her party’s strategy against next year’s Democratic majority.If she succeeds, Cheney will be the only woman in House Republican leadership – and follow in the footsteps of her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, who won the same post more than 30 years ago.She is seeking the position of GOP conference chair, which would put her at the forefront of the House GOP’s communications strategy when Democrats take over the chamber in January. House Republicans are looking for a more forceful approach to communications.

Emmanuel Macron and Angele Merkel found the will to go to Compiegne. Donald Trump did not. We could have guessed his actions. He looks moody. His face is not that of a world leader in France to honor the country’s dead; it is the face of a man who feels that he is being dishonored.
We have seen this face a lot, in situations when the President feels inadequate, when he feels that he has been snubbed, when he feels that he is out of his depth. That is certainly the case here. He is all of those right now.
Donald, real leaders don’t throw temper tantrums. They don’t shame their country. They don’t use venues such as this to attack allies.
Real leaders are better men and women.
The man is a clown, and the leaders of the EU know it. And when it seems he cannot be more clownish, he overdoes himself.
This is the worst President in a century…
Before a meeting of world leaders meant to signal that tragedies of the war are long past, the U.S. president called the French president’s proposal for a European military “insulting.”

Don’t bogart that joint, my friend. Seems that across the nation there is one subject that a sizable majority agree on; we like our weed.
The old have been recruited, as years of medical marijuana has become one of the tools for palliative care.
The young are, well, young, and the devil weed has been realized to be what it is, recreational, and far less harmful to you than alcohol.
As states move toward legalization, the prospect of more taxes and less money wasted on enforcement are becoming more attractive.
Prohibition does not seem to work no matter what vice we outlaw.
America is becoming Weed Nation.

Mostly young, full of life, dreams, and hopes for the future, all dashed by a moment of madness perpetrated by a sick man with a gun. We repeat, with a gun.

Nevada elected a dead Republican pimp, which should answer any lingering questions about how almost half of the country could vote Republican.
Races like Dennis Hof’s show that political parties often have plenty to gain and little to lose from backing deceased candidates.

He does not want a DOJ.
He wants a sycophant
Where does this leave Rod Rosenstein?
Whitaker is a Trump sycophant
Does this kill the Mueller probe?
Sessions should have been fired.
Contrary to the beliefs of some, the second amendment is not infringed by certain actions.
