Bush starts his Good Riddance Tours in Europe

In typical British understatement, the BBC reports:

With Bush now entering in his lame duck phase, he will be traveling throughout Europe to say the traditional diplomatic goodbyes.
Meanwhile: A poll by the UK's Daily Telegraph website in late May showed that in Britain, France, Germany and Russia, more people regarded the United States as a force for evil than for good. Only in Italy did the US fare better.

Although this new phase is much safer for all of us, than his "let's go fuck up the world phase", Bush's woes at home might just be starting.

Dennis Kucinich, the Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate has presented articles of impeachment against Bush to Congress late Monday evening. From Raw News:
Kucinich then began, "that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate. ...

The first article Kucinich presented, and many that followed, regarded the war in Iraq: "Article 1 - Creating a secret propaganda campaign to manufacture a false case for war against Iraq."

Kucinich exclaimed that "impeachment may well be the only remedy which remains to stop a war of aggression against Iran."
Obviously not many are expecting this impeachment to be successful as no one else has reported on it except Raw News & CSPAN. 

And although Kucinich is more respected for selecting partners than stating policy, you can understand his concern about allowing Bush to continue his sabre rattling on this, his last trip to Europe.
Bush goes into his farewell European summit on Tuesday seeking to work with allies to ratchet up pressure on Iran over its nuclear programme but still at odds with them over climate change. The National Post.
I agree with Kucinich, keeping Bush at home is probably safer for the world and certainly less embarrassing for the US.

Hey there must still be a lot of brush that needs to be mowed down in Crawford.  Or they could send him off hunting with Cheney in Vermont. Hell, he could even sneak in a few more rounds of golf in Florida. I'm sure the Gold Star mums won't mind, they want him to disappear as quickly and quietly as the rest of us do.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
