Day 152:

Jesus Christ Trump Is A Horrible Person:

Really, the rich are not like the rest of us.  They start to lose touch with what really matters, and start to think of everyone else as “less than.”  It’s a sickness, just like addiction, they would lie cheat and steal just to get one more dollar…like all addictions its very hard to break the habit.

Which is why we should help them by taxing them heavily, and taking away their disproportionate political power.

Day 151:

Trump and the republicans in office are quietly trying to continue to fuck you over, despite the daily media shit storm.  I think they know that a lot of them are going to lose their elections next year.  But that doesn’t bother them, because they don’t work for you, they work for a host of big money interests and will be well paid and safely employed by those people after they loose their election.

However none of this will matter at all unless you go out and vote for the midterms.  100% of the republicans need to go, there is not a single good one in the whole batch.  And sadly so do about 90% of the democrats, as they are no longer an opposition party, and no longer represent the will of the people.

This might be our last chance to pull this plane up before we all collectively slam into the mountain.

Day 149:

They are stubbornly marching forward:

You would think that someone in the white house would have taken a look at the news the polls and maybe just gone out and asked some folks, and then come up with a better plan, if only a P.R. plan to make themselves more popular.  My guess is they are living in a media bubble, only reading sources they agree with, surrounding themselves with yes men and women, and getting a constant influx of money and support from the people they are actually doing the bidding of (the super rich).  There is a very real chance that Trump etc.  think they are doing a great job and everyone loves them.

Could this be why daily they do something to piss off more people, to harm more Americans, or to further destroy the earth?  The other alternative is that they are bad people, and they want to dismantle the country for nefarious reasons, either to make someone rich, or as part of a plot to empower someone else.

Either way the solution is the same.  Vote progressives into office, take back the reigns of power, get money out of politics, and rebuild the system so its more fair and equitable.  That has always been the project of this country.  We have taken some very wrong turns…but that is still the goal.   Trump can’t stop us, because we are the people, and together we are unstoppable.

Day 148:

The Turd In Chief Is Circling The Drain:

Lets be clear how this is going to go from here on in.  It is going to be a daily flood of law suits, judges rulings, special investigators, laws passed that hurt the poor, and laws passed that help the rich, all while the environment falls apart around us, and real major problems people face are not solved.  The inattention of our president and the republicans in congress could lead to more gun deaths, more terrorism, and more suffering.  Hurricane season has begun with no head to FEMA.  In short this is going to be a non-stop shit show with a high likelihood that a lot of people will die or be injured.

It is not good, and it will not get better unless we remember one thing.  Things can be better.  Our current situation is not our destiny.  The citizens of this country have power, and a duty to use it responsibly.  It is are duty as citizens to peacefully protect our nation from internal political threats.

There are elections coming up, you need to be well informed and vote for progressive candidates that will fight you.  On the right and the left we must stop voting for people who do not represent us, but instead do what large donors tell them to.  This means 100% of the republicans have to go and about 90% of the democrats.  Its not a pretty picture, but its one we can change.

Just remember, Our Demands:

Livable Wage (at least 15 dollars an hour, and some places higher)

Health Care For All

Pay equity for women

100% renewable energy

Paid Family leave/Daycare

Free Public College

Regulate the Banks

Money out of Politics!

Pay for it by taxing the rich and large corporations, while cutting military spending.

Any candidate that supports these things is a good one, and you should vote for them.  Any candidate that says they support these things but then once in office fights against them, must be voted out.

Trump and Company are symptoms of a problem, candidates that support the issues above are the cure to the underlying problem of income inequality, and environmental degradation.

Its going to be a hard fight, but its one we must win.

Until then, pay attention, and love as much as you can while still fighting as hard as you can.
