This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 91

Trump Watch:

Widely-Opposed Pipeline ‘Confirms Worst Fears’ After Two Spills Into Ohio Wetlands.  We don’t need anymore fossil fuel infrastructure, we need renewables.  These pipelines are simply being built so that massive carbon companies can squeeze a couple more years of profit out of the ground before their business model is made illegal.  They must be stopped.

Exxon asks Trump administration for waiver from Russia sanctions.

we know how much oil/gas/coal is in the ground. The value of these big carbon companies is based on the value of these proven reserves. We also know that if we burn all that oil/gas/coal that global warming will be unstoppable.

The stock value of these companies is dependent on the market continuing to believe that those proven reserves will be dug up and burned.

These companies are horribly over valued, because most of their “value” is in reserves that CAN NOT be used (if you value the future of civilization)

They will lie/cheat/steal/bribe basically do anything to make sure that the market and the general public continues to think everything is fine, if only to squeeze out one more year of profits. Get your money out of carbon stocks now, because this bubble is about to pop. They might have paid a lot of money to get Trump in office, but he can only delay the inevitable, renewables are too cheap, carbon fuels are too dirty, its only a matter of time before this entire industry goes down hard.

Reminder that Donald Trump is gutting transparency rules and now energy companies no longer have to report payments to foreign governments

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 79

Trump Watch:

The EPA Is in shambles, Trump is starting another war, the republicans just appointed a corporate stooge to the highest court, and the Russia shit just wont stop.  Trumps presidency is falling apart around him, and its clear to everyone that he should be impeached.  The only problem is our spineless leaders in Washington either can’t be bothered because they don’t want to upset the money train, or they are actively complicit in his crimes and don’t want to get caught.

Now more than ever its important to vote, to participate in local politics, and to constantly call your senators and reps and make sure they know just how angry you are.

————————

Trump wants to cut funding for meals on wheels but has 100 million to waste on bombing an airfield. (which they apparently can’t even do correctly, or perhaps they never meant it as anything other than a head fake) Don’t let anyone ever tell you we need budget cuts to PBS, or health care for old people.  The truth is there is plenty of money, but they would rather line the pockets of military contractors than help your grandma get her medicine.

The media is complicit in pushing war.  Don’t forget who butters their bread.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 48

Trump’s Daily Fuck Ups:

Literally no one likes the new republican health care plan, the AARP just came out against it, doctors, as did basically everyone else.  Here is the thing the republicans never know how to govern, they are only good at keeping others from governing.  They never had a plan, and now that they revealed “their plan” its clear there are no serious thinkers in the room over at republicans head quarters.  I want you to really understand this, the republicans don’t and can’t govern because they are 1000% the mouth piece of big business and large money interest.  The reason why 95% of the democrats can’t govern is because they are beholden to the exact same big money interests.

The reason why Obama care wasn’t single payer, or medicaid for all is because the big money didn’t want it.  Everything wrong with Obama care was put there by big money.  And now that same big money doesn’t want republican plan because it will take away the money train.  We do need to change our health care system, and it shouldn’t be repealed, but instead fixed.  Medicaid universal health care for all!

——————-

Meanwhile Trump and friends are busy destroying the future of this planet.  This must be stopped, or it will kill the future.

——————

Trump still has not released his taxes.  And its becoming clear that he is keeping them secret because they show he is a criminal, or has links to criminals.

——————-

American citizens are being detained because of the way they look.  If you are are brown in the middle of the country you might get arrested just because you look brown….jesus christ this is a disaster.

——————–

American States are starting to sue the federal government over the travel ban.  Hawaii is first up.  I would hope that we can get some more states to do the same.

——————–

The thrashing and craziness around trumps insane behavior continues. 

——————–

Got kids in school?  Care about education?  Want smart people working with you?  Then maybe you should call up your senator and tell them you want them to fight Betsy DeVos and her crazy ideas.

——————–

The CIA can and is hacking your phone, if you feel bad about this call your senator and demand they take action.

———————

Mexico is ramping up the trade war Trump started…which will hurt all of us.  Meanwhile China is basically bribing Trump by granting him trademarks so he can continue to make large sums of money from his companies that are not in blind trusts.  He might be violating anti-corruption laws with these foreign deals.  IMPEACHMENT NOW.

———————

When Mike Pence de-funded planned parenthood, there was a massive outbreak of STI’s and HIV, one of the biggest ever in America.

Give Planned Parenthood some cash to show them you support them.

There is a special election in Montana, and the GOP is pouring in money to defeat the progressive candidates.  You don’t spend 700k unless you are worried you might lose.  If you live in Montana, register and vote for Rob Quist.  If you don’t live in Montana, give him some cash.

————————-
If corporate democrats back the presidents supreme court pick, they should be replaced.  Call your senator and tell them this.  That is a stolen seat and it should be a liberal on that court.

—————————

Bernie will be in Boston, get your tickets now!  He will also be in West Virginia (fuck you Joe Manchin).

——————-

Tulsi Gabbard introduces bill to end federal Marijuana prohibition.  Call your house rep and tell them to support this bill.  This matters, because the republicans are busy trying to ramp up private prisons.  In a system that is already highly racist.

—————

Hillary Clinton’s message was basically “I am not Trump.”  Next time around we need to be much more specific about our values, our policies, and we need a candidate like Bernie Sanders who will fight hard for them.
