Government ....., Drumpf can get it for ya wholesale!

Image result for king trump political cartoonsDear Friends: Here's a quick wrap-up of Inauguration Day!

Well, he did it folks, Dapper Don took the oath of office at noon today and became the 45th president of the United States!

Meanwhile, Barack Obama, now unemployed and homeless, walked around to the front of the Capital Building and caught a cab to wherever it was he was going.

The rest of the afternoon was filled with pomp and circumstance, which all culminated with three Inauguration Balls ....., and more speeches by now President Drumpf. (By the way, the president wanted to start working right away tomorrow morning, but was outraged when he discovered that civil servants don't work Saturdays.)

Drumpf's Big Day!

Dear Friends:

Members of the Perspective Naked News Staff managed to get a photo this morning of Donald Drumpf getting ready for his big day!!!!!

Message to Drumpf About Climate Change!

Dear Friends: 

According to Popular Science magazine It's not in your head: The weather is weirder, and climate change is the reason why ....., but don’t point any fingers at one particular flood. Or drought. Or hurricane. Or heatwave. (Or even a meltdown by Drumpf!) 

 Flooded street
 Guest Post By Mark D. Kaufman

If it seems like you’re reading about devastating floods, droughts, and storms way more often than you used to, it’s because these extreme events are actually happening more frequently.

But this should come as no surprise. Climate scientists predicted that this would happen as more greenhouse gases accumulated in Earth’s atmosphere. Certain extreme weather events have long been anticipated, just like the pronounced warming in the Arctic.

“Climate models have predicted amplified warming at high latitudes and increasing intensity of precipitation and flooding,” says Ken Davis, who studies Earth’s weather and atmosphere at Penn State University. In fact, says Davis, these extreme events have been predicted for decades.

The United States, in particular, has recently experienced superlatively intense rainfall. The reason is simple: Higher temperatures mean that more water evaporates into the atmosphere, resulting in more rain.

But in some cases, more rain means record-breaking catastrophic downpours. The Amite River, which winds by Baton Rouge, La., usually begins flooding when it reaches 29 feet. During intense rains in August 2016, the Amite River rose to 46.2 feet. This smashed the river’s previous record by five feet, and the ensuing floods caused 30,000 people to flee their homes.

And it's likely that more of these flooding events will make the news in the near future.

Following these floods, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) studied rainfall trends in both the 20th and 21st centuries. The agency found that human-caused climate change resulted in a 40 percent increase in the likelihood that such extreme rainfall events would occur.

In a related report, the National Climate Assessment found “that the most extreme precipitation events (those in the 99th percentile of intensity) have increased in every region of the contiguous states since the 1950s.” These events were notable in the Southeast, where their frequency rose by 27 percent, but most striking in the Northeast, where they increased by 71 percent.

While climate change is encouraging more rivers to overflow their banks in Louisiana, it’s drying out the land in California. Blizzards may have recently blanketed the state’s Sierra Nevada mountains in snow, but it will likely take a few strong winters to overcome California’s historic drought—its most extreme in centuries, explains Daniel Horton, who studies climate at Northwestern University.

The link between climate change and Californian drought is clear—higher temperatures are the most widely-recognized result of greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere. And the records show that California is definitely getting warmer, which means less moisture in soil. “In years with little rain,” says Horton, “we would expect a greater risk for drought due to the warming trend.”

So unless things start cooling down, more droughts should be expected—even as parts of the country are increasingly plagued by torrential rain.

But it would wrong to label any particular extreme event as being caused by climate change. Extreme weather happened long before humans started sending plumes of carbon into Earth’s atmosphere, and weather is pretty darn fickle.

“If you look at one storm—like a hurricane—you can’t say that’s due to climate change,” says Steve LaDochy, who studies geoscience at California State University, Los Angeles. “There’s a lot of variability involved,” he says, such as temperature, winds and air pressure.

So while it may be impossible to know if the next hurricane that shreds buildings along the Atlantic coast is specifically caused by climate change, there is one certainty regarding these extreme events: We’ll all be reading about them in the news—and living through them—a lot more often.

Trump's Government Featured on Rocky and Bullwinlkle Show?

Dear Friends:

When President Obama took office in January of 2009 he basically had all his top cabinet positions confirmed and most of the people who were on the next rung down appointed and in place.

Flash ahead to 2017 and we find that Donald Drumpf still hasn't got most of his cabinet members confirmed, (any?) and almost nobody in the second tier of these departments appointed ..........., which means the U.S.  Government could come to a halt as early as Friday afternoon.
Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks have been battered by revelations of questionable stock trades and potentially undocumented employees. They’ve undergone rocky confirmation hearings and faced criticism from Democrats that they’re unfit to lead a major federal agency.
After revelations by Rachel Maddow of MSNBC (and others) Trump's team  quickly phoned a bunch of people who were set to leave on Friday and asked them to stay on in their jobs, at least until this whole mess gets straightened out:
President-elect Donald Trump has asked 50 government employees in critical posts to stay on in his administration, including Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work and Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy for countering Islamic State, a spokesman said on Thursday.
Drug Enforcement Administration Administrator Chuck Rosenberg, National Counterterrorism Center Director Nick Rasmussen, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Tom Shannon and Adam Szubin, acting under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence for the Treasury Department are also among them, Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said at a news briefing.
 Now the American people have been warned what sort of a clusterfuck this administration is going to be and this is just the beginning of what could be the most dysfunctional and  disastrous government since the exploits of Captain Wrongway Peachfuzz!

The difference between Liberals and Conservatives!

Dear Friends:

Image result for donald trump clipartI was thinking about the mind-set of liberals and conservatives and other than everyone's fixation of Political Correctness there seems to be a basic divide on the thought processes between these two groups.

At it's most basic level liberals seem much more willing to embrace new ideas and progressive thinking, while conservatives are mired in their own set of rigid thoughts and morals.

Image result for donald trump clipartThis is the reason Trump won the election: His catchall phrase "Make America Great again!" didn't really identify any specific problems or course of action,  but rather left it up to the individual to determine what his or her vision of a former 'Great America' was!

With "Make America Great Again" Donald Trump didn't have to do anything to convert a sizable portion of the population to his way of thinking ....., because they did it to themselves!
