Day 124:

The people in power are afraid of us

Deep inside their minds they have two thoughts about the American people, fear, and contempt.  These two ideas swirl around in their mind causing them to at once feel no compunction screwing us over, and at the same time running scared from us when we challenge them.

FIGHT BACK!  Don’t let them screw you over, stand up to them, vote, get your friends to go to a town hall, get your friends to vote.  There is a political awakening happening in this country right now, and its time we all rise up and use our vote to secure a future for ourselves.

Demand: 

A living wage, pay equity for women, 100% renewable energy, strong environmental regulations, paid family leave and subsidized child care, free public college, medicare for all, an end to the many wars, and a re-regulation and breaking up of the big banks.  Demand it be paid for by reducing military budgets and taxing the rich.

Day 123:

 

Donald Trump Is The Circus, A Distraction

Trump is a clown, and a distraction.  He is the symptom of a problem that has been brewing for 30-40 years.  The rich have rigged the system so they can continue to get richer every year, while the rest of us get screwed a little harder every year.  The fact that we had two such horrible choices for president this year, last time, the time before, and the time before that is because the powerful interests don’t want things to change.  I can only hope we have reached the limits to which people will put up with this shit, and that they start getting out there and voting for people who actually care about them and who will fight for change.

Day 122:

Hey Look Our President Is Embarrassing Us Overseas!

Foreign leaders apparently have been briefed on keeping their talks with our president short, to the point, using lots of pictures, and not distracting him with hard questions.  They have also stocked up on steak and ketchup because he wont eat local food.

He is also playing patty cake with a bunch of fucking dictators, so in that sense he is continuing the tradition of the last 4 presidents.  So I guess in that sense he is presidential.  Lets just hope he doesn’t say anything that starts another war.

Day 121:

 It’s all Unraveling: 

While the entire country is unraveling, hundreds of critical jobs in government are unfilled, and the ones that aren’t vacant are full of monsters busy destroying the department they work for.  So what is Trump doing?  He is running off to the middle east for 9 days.  We can only hope that during his planned speech on Islam he doesn’t make our already strained relationships with that part of the world worse.  Oh and his meeting with the pope…

My guess is that this will put out as a huge distraction to try and get people to pay attention to his travels instead of the MANY problems that are going on here at home.

Impeachment and imprison.
