This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 53

Trump Did This:

When they round up immigrants to deport, they often spend months working illegally as slaves in privately run for profit detention facilities, Trump has overturned Obama’s rule that these private for profit slave shops should no longer be used.  They are so bad people are asking to be put in solitary confinement for their own safety.

—————–

It seems that Trump can’t keep even the most simple of his campaign promises, to donate his own salary.  He says buy american, but makes his families clothing in China.  He criticized (rightly) Obama’s drone strike program, but has increased drone strikes over 430%.

——————-

Did your senator vote for Elaine Chow as the transportation secretary?  Now might be a good time to call them up and let them know that was a bad idea.

—————-

The republicans are so hungry for tax cuts for the rich that they will do anything to get another one passed.  Even if it means kicking millions of people off health care, and killing tens of thousands of -people in the process.

—————–

People are afraid to visit America, I can’t blame them really.

—————-

Republican voters need to stop punching themselves in the face.

Renewable energy has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of good paying clean jobs in this country, and will even if Trump supports fossil fuels, but with the right government support we could have clean air, clean water, cheap electricity, and more jobs.  Call your senator today and tell them to stop supporting big carbon and start supporting renewables!

Obamacare, and Trumpcare both are highly flawed, the republicans can’t seem to find their own asshole, and the democrates are too busy caving to corporate donors….but just maybe, if we push these idiots hard enough, we could end up with something much better than both plans!  Lets get single payer back on the table!  Lets get a real universal health care system in this country!

————–

We must resist corporate democrats.  They must be removed and replaced with progressives.
