Day 116:

 

We are being lied to so rich people can take our money:

The problem with the poor is not that they are stupid or lazy, its that they don’t have enough money.  Giving tax cuts the wealthy just makes their bank account bigger.  Giving money to poor people drives it right back into the economy.  It’s time to think about raising taxes on the rich, and greatly expanding the services we offer to citizens of this country.  15 dollar minimum wage, pay equity for women, shorter work week, medicare for all, paid parental daycare, free public college.  I would even go so far as to say with the rise in automation and the increase of productivity might demand something like a universal basic income.

Pope Francis says he will stand up to Donald Trump on immigration and climate change

 

Trump thinks he is a king:

He thinks he is above the law, doesn’t care a whit about going on TV and admitting to obstruction of justice, and doesn’t care at all about the citizens.  The list of his crimes is a mile long, but the single worse one so far is that he is denying climate change.  This is the same as murdering the entire future.  A horrific offense that makes his graft, insider trading, and business deals look petty. The sooner we all realize this the sooner we can put him in a jail cell.

Further Reading:

Trump is deleting climate change, one site at a time – The administration has taken a hatchet to climate change language across government websites. Here are several of the more egregious examples.

Day 109:

 

Russia, the story that wont die:

A lot of people think the problem with Russian influence in our politics is that the red menace is back and they are going to take over america and turn us all into commie bastards.  The truth however is that Russian influence in American politics is not unique or communist.  Its the natural end product of late stage capitalism, MERICA!

The Saudis, Israelis, China,pretty much anyone who can is pouring money into our political system to get what they want.  Russia is not even the worst.  None of these countries are interested in taking over, what they are interested in is MONEY (and in some cases buying weapons).

The Russian case is in the spotlight because Donald Trump might be the dumbest politician to ever walk the earth.  He could keep area 51 secret.

In my opinion the entire scandal boils down to this: Trump is a horrible business man.  2008 rolls around and he is in big trouble.  No other banks will give him cash, so he goes to the Russians.  They probably have some dirt on him to make sure he pays up, and then low and behold HE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT!  This is a wet dream for the Russians, they hate Clinton for her part in the sanctions for Crimea, so this is going to be great.  They do some email hacking(which by the way wouldn’t have hurt her if she wasn’t so corrupt, can’t hack corruption out of emails that don’t have evidence of corruption in them), pay some bribes to Trump and his people, get lucky with Clinton running an abysmal campaign, and BAM they have a president they can control.

The whole thing is so done so that Putin and his rich Plutocrats can get even richer, damn the consequences.  Which has also basically been American foreign policy for the last 35 years, so lets not go pointing fingers so fast.

And now hopefully the whole house of cards is falling in on itself.  This whole sorry affair is a perfectly good reason (among many) to impeach Trump.  Now that the Republicans have decided to shoot themselves in the foot by passing this horrible health care bill in the house, perhaps they will look to impeachment as a way to climb back out of that hole.  Probably not going to happen that way, but a person can dream.

More likely we will have to wait until after the 2018 elections to see what the house and senate look like.  If both find themselves with a sudden infusion of progressives we could see Trump’s term cut short.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 21

Twenty Days, lets see if we can get lady liberty to a full month under Trump, Keep fighting, keep resisting!

Trump Messed This Up Today:

Racist, homophobic, misogynist,  and all around horrible excuse for a human being Jeff Sessions has been made the Attorney General.  If you live in a state with a Republican Senator, its time to call them up and tell them that you will be voting against them next time, approving this asshole is a new low.

—————

Jesus lord above have mercy on us, Trump is profoundly stupid..unprepared, and manically dangerous.  He didn’t know what the Nuclear Treaty was, had to ask his aids while on the phone with Putin.

————–

The TPP and TTIP are not dead, they just have a new name.

—————

The Trumps are upset they are not making more money from being president, Kellyanne Conway is violating federal law to help them steal more tax payer money…these people need to go to jail.

————

While I am remiss to be distracted by the Russians, Trump still hasn’t released his taxes, so we don’t know if he has ties to them.  In fact we don’t know if they are blackmailing him, bribing him, or something else.  This should still be looking into.

————-

Even Trumps own pick to be on the Supreme court thinks there is something wrong with him. Does this qualify him to be on the court, hell no, but when your friends and your foes both agree you are nutssomething should be done.  Of course, Trump lied about it, and then took to twitter to complain like a child.  Secret President Bannon has got to be loving these distractions from his evil doing.

————–

Ted Cruz is ill informed, and cares not a whit about you or your health care, if he is breathing he is lying.  Remember that whenever you hear him say anything.

————

Trump still hasn’t released his taxes, It’s time the congress force him to.  He also wants to make it legal to buy minerals from warlords, and people who use slaves…  Is this what people in the “heartland” thought would happen when he was in office?  Because something like that only helps the super rich, and fucks over miners here in america, while at the same time destroying the lives of hundreds of thousands of people the world over.

————-

Trump is about to unleash hell on immigrants, Obama started it, Trump is going to finish it.  This can’t be allowed to happen, it will cause untold damage to human life, and our economy.

————–

FIGHT! LOVE! FIGHT! WIN!

Lets get Nina Turner as the governor of Ohio!

———

General Strike!

———

Iowa is fighting the good fight!  If you live around Iowa help them out!  Some of the strongest push back against pipelines has been from Iowa.  Iowa is huge into wind energy, they know whats up there.

———–

Bernie Sanders easily won his debate with Ted Cruz about health care, because there is not really a debate.  The republicans want you to get sick and die, progressives want you to be well.  Call your senator today and tell them you stand with Bernie on a public option, and medicare for all.

————-

Hey look main stream media is catching up, only several years too late. But isn’t that always the way, they never get the courage to speak up until after their profits have been secured.

————-

McConnell silenced Elizabeth Warren on the senate floor from reading Correta Scott Kings letter on the senate floor, so he is going to get it blasted into his house with a megaphone.  FUCK YOU!  (ps.  this is the kind of shit that needs to happen every day, every action from these fuckers must be met with a creative and effective response. )
