This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 73

Trump Watch:

It seems the chickens are coming home to roust for Trump.  Its becoming more and more clear that this entire presidency for him was about fleecing as much money as possible from the American public.  It remains to be seen if the republicans in congress are going to do anything about it, or more likely they suffer dramatic losses in the 2018 elections, and then we will have a bunch of weak ass corporate democrats to worry about instead.

Just remember, you can’t fight something with nothing.  Its not good enough for you to be anti-trump, you have to be pro something.  I think its important we elect progressive candidates that are for a 15 dollar minimum wage, universal medicare for all, environmental protections, taxing the rich, ending the military excesses, getting money out of politics, universal pre-k and paid family leave, free public college.  This is the vision we must push as a possible alternative to the greed based dystopia that is currently on offer.

We can’t allow our democratic leaders to simply point fingers and go “look how bad Trump is!  RUSSIA!”  We need them to actively be fighting for a progressive agenda.  Call your congressperson today and make sure that they know you want them to not only fight against Trump, but FIGHT FOR SOMETHING!

Roger Stone calls on Trump to back legal marijuana, hits Sessions for ‘outmoded thinking’  Two things about this, Roger Stone is an insane person…no really.  And this shows that every person in Trumps circle has their own sad ideology driven madness.  Hopefully this indicates that they wont be able to get anything done, and not that Trump will just switch from position to position depending on who the last person he talked to was.
