Trump Watch July 13 2017

Day 175:

Stupid:

This era will be remembered as the stupid era.  An era in which we had every single bit of data we needed, all the technology, giant once in a life time chances to do good….and we didn’t.

It will be remembered as a greedy, stupid time, in which money triumphed over logic, and capitalism ran wild destroying everything (including itself).

I still believe that we can come out of this better, having learned our lessons, with a clear goal to unite humanity around (global warming, and making everyone’s lives better on this planet).

That long journey starts with your vote, your donation, your march, your voice.

Fight, Love, Fight, Win!
