Trumpcare is horrible, and it affects everyone, even those with healthcare through employers. Today might be the day of reckoning, where the House either kills the bill or gets enough votes to head to Senate. Call your Reps and tell them NO, WE DON’T WANT THIS.

But watching Hillary Clinton trying to blame the FBI and wikileaks for her loss is hilarious.  You were running against Donald Trump, you should have had such a lead that any amount of wikileaks and FBI nonsense wouldn’t have mattered.  Instead you were such a weak candidate that only a 1 or 2% shift cost you the election.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 70

Trump Watch:

All issues pale in comparison to the climate.  With a healthy stable climate we will have hundreds of thousands of years to figure out all our other problems.  Without a healthy stable climate, the entire civilization of humanity is doomed.  Trump has ordered the Energy Department Climate office to no longer use the words “climate change” and pressured a bunch more public agencies to do the same.  His solution to climate change, put his fingers in his ears, then put his head up his ass.

Bernie sanders says everything I want to hear in this interview, he is dropping truth bombs so hard that the earth shakes.

 

THIS IS MADNESS!  If Trump went on tv and said “I am going to kill 2/3rds of your children next week” There would be an obvious uproar, and the entire country would kick him out of office so fast his head would spin.   Well when he says climate change is a hoax, and that he is going to do nothing about it, just remember what he is really saying is “I am going to kill by neglect millions perhaps billions of people in the future.”

Trump’s EPA Just Greenlighted a Pesticide Known to Damage Kids’ Brains

The science of global warming is real, and its as serious as death.  WE MUST STOP HIM.  Call your senator, call your rep, call your governor.  DEMAND action on climate.  Demand they push back on Trumps agenda, DEMAND a future for you and your children.

—————-

—————

But if you don’t care about the future of humanity, there is still plenty of shit about Russia going on.  It is pretty clear at this point that Trump is in bed with Russia, and he is doing so for reasons of money.  Can we just impeach his dumb ass already?

—————

Because A: Trump is too stupid to do the job on his own, and B: Nepotism is fun.  Ivanka Trump is going to be a federal employee now.

—————-

Trump is going to destroy the EPA by a death by a thousand cuts.  Keep a list of how your rep is voting, make sure to hold them accountable, they need to hear from you.

FDR faced opposition in the party over the New Deal, including from his own VP John Nance Garner, who he decided to drop from the ticket before running for a third term in favor of more liberal Henry Wallace.

Upon witnessing Dems at the convention try to block Henry Wallace’s nomination as VP, he drafted this letter turning down the nomination.  It was never sent.

July 18, 1940

Members of the Convention:

In the century in which we live, the Democratic Party has received the support of the electorate only when the party, with absolute clarity, has been the champion of progressive and liberal policies and principles of government.

The party has failed consistently when through political trading and chicanery it has fallen into the control of those interests, personal and financial, which think in terms of dollars instead of in terms of human values.

The Republican Party has made its nominations this year at the dictation of those who, we all know, always place money ahead of human progress.

The Democratic Convention, as appears clear from the events of today, is divided on this fundamental issue. Until the Democratic Party through this convention makes overwhelmingly clear its stand in favor of social progress and liberalism, and shakes off all the shackles of control fastened upon it by the forces of conservatism, reaction, and appeasement, it will not continue its march of victory.

It is without question that certain political influences pledged to reaction in domestic affairs and to appeasement in foreign affairs have been busily engaged behind the scenes in the promotion of discord since this Convention convened.

Under these circumstances, I cannot, in all honor, and will not, merely for political expediency, go along with the cheap bargaining and political maneuvering which have brought about party dissension in this convention.

It is best not to straddle ideals.

In these days of danger when democracy must be more than vigilant, there can be no connivance with the kind of politics which has internally weakened nations abroad before the enemy has struck from without.

It is best for America to have the fight out here and now.

I wish to give the Democratic Party the opportunity to make its historic decision clearly and without equivocation. The party must go wholly one way or wholly the other. It cannot face in both directions at the same time.

By declining the honor of the nomination for the presidency, I can restore that opportunity to the convention. I so do.

FDR knew what was up….maybe we should send copies of this to every democrat in government.
