Trump Watch June 9 2017

Day 141:

Watch The Bird’y:

These republicans are a real barrel of shit.  While everyone else was watching the former FBI director give testimony about our current president’s attempts to obstruct justice, they republicans in the house were busy repealing Dodd-Frank.  Dodd-Frank, you may remember was passed after the 2008 financial crisis and was itself a watered down version of Glass-Stegal (who’s repeal many think caused the recent economic meltdown).

These mother fuckers are absolutely set on destroying the entire world, so that their big money donors can get what they want (which is more money).  It’s the most short sighted of plans, and is bound to fail, and yet they do it over and over.

Much like the debacle in the UK for May and the conservative party, it will be these idiots Hubris which destroys them in the end.

Perhaps the stunning upset by labor in the UK is the start of a world wide response and backlash to the recent conservative wave.  We can only hope.  Be sure to contact your house rep and let them know you are absolutely furious about the repeal of Dodd-Frank.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 100

Trump Watch:

We made it to 100 days…sheesh remember 10 years ago when we were at day 1.  Trump’s administration is aging like a dog.  I have to say I am disappointed by not surprised.  Ever since I was born presidents have been getting steadily shittier.  Reagan was atrocious, Clinton and both Bush’s were hardly different, Obama was the best republican president we have had since Nixon, and now Trump.  Each has done their part to destroy and dismantle America.  They did it for money, and they did it for something as petty as money.  There is no grand conspiracy, there is no volcano with an evil genius.  As much as Exxon, or the Koch brothers would like to think they are in control, the sad fact is, this is what you get when you let money rule instead of the people.

The last time we had allowed government to stagnate into such a mess, the last time we had fucked over multiple generations was the late 1800’s.  Robber barons ruled the nation, there was a great depression, and in general the rich had it great, the poor not so much.  The solution back then was FDR and two world wars….lets hope we can figure out how to fix it this time without murdering an entire generation of young men.

Trump is a symptom of the problem, not the cause of them.  Unless we fundamentally rework government we will just get another Trump.  This is why you need to vote in your local elections, why every race from Dog Catcher, to Senator must be a big deal.  We need a soup to nuts reboot of the process that governs us.

I would humbly suggest you start with the Left.  The democrats are hardly the opposition anymore, opting instead to be republicans that are ok with abortion and gay people.  Smart, inventive progressives who actually care about the environment, pay equity, a strong living wage, unions, health care for all, free college, and an end to money in politics are the kinds of people we need to start electing.

Once the left has been returned to the opposition you will quickly see what it looks like to have two parties who actually fight each other again, instead of one large party with two different wings.

Good luck to us all if we can not.  Things like global warming, and income inequality are not going to wait for us to get our shit together, they are ticking time bombs and will go off if we don’t do something, and do something fast.

On this 100 day milestone reflect on that, renew your efforts, remember who and what you love, and FIGHT!

Trump’s tax plan could cost an estimated $5.5 trillion.  Which is why it MUST NOT PASS.  This would bankrupt america, and make the rich so rich that they would become royalty.

If you’re wondering how this absurd sham of a “tax plan” happened, here’s the answer: Trump’s Treasury Department hasn’t filled any tax policy jobs. Pretend President wants to do pretend work, and we get shitty work product as the result.

Dynamic scoring is the Republicans’ latest Big Lie. They’re going to invent a phony economic model so that they can claim that their $6 trillion tax cut doesn’t explode the deficit. That’s like asking the public to accept a Powerball ticket as payment for a Ferrari.

House delays Obamacare vote, denying Trump 100-day win.  Frankly I am not surprised, it was a horrible bill to start with, it failed twice to get a vote before, they went back to the drawing board made it EVEN WORSE, and then tried to serve us a shit sandwich for a third time.  These fucking morons, they had 8 years to plan this, and what do they do when the time comes, roll out this nonsense.  It’s clear to me that anyone bought and paid for by big money interests doesn’t actually know how to govern, and is paid because they are so stupid and will do anything the big money tells them to.
