My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
With popular politicians like Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom behind this initiative I am sure that it will pass and the voted in by California voters in November. A general election is usually the best time to put one of these ballot initiatives up for a vote. Did the first nature of a general electric is more likely to approve these.
Turkey is a very popular destination for Americans during this time of the year. If you have any family or friends that it were or is going to be visiting the area please make sure that they contact their family to tell them they’re ok.
When the US Chamber of Commerce slams from for his economic message that’s the heart and soul of the Republican Party talking. We see that corporations are unwilling to sponsor the Republican National Convention but I wonder with all of this turmoil with brexit how corporations view the turmoil that Trump wouldn’t bring to the economy of the world. I will not be surprised to see corporations giving large money to Super Pacs to make sure that Trump is not elected.
And while we’re at it why don’t we talk about Trump and the fact that none of the stuff that he sells to Americans is made in the USA. Whether his suits that are made in Bangladesh or is hats that are made in China or his ties their maid who knows where he makes stuff anywhere but the USA. And he’s against globalization. What a hypocrite.
I will preface this by saying that A party’s platform is rather irrelevant after the November elections. And most of the time the platform is only relevant to a party opposing party. So this fight over what is and what is not going to be in the platform of the Democratic Party is only useful for Donald Trump or the nominee of the Republican Party. The most important thing that would have damaged the Democrats in November was Bernie Sanders unreasonable stance regarding the israeli-palestinian conflict. The Democrats were able not to include that language in this draft. We need to keep pressure on the Democratic party to make sure they don’t buckle in on this issue. Donald Trump will say that the Democrats not the friends that Israel needs in a region filled with enemies.
Talk about government waste and then say the words Benghazi committee. Representative Trey Gowdy and his select Benghazi committee have wasted two years and millions of dollars to find out nothing. The worst they could find on Hillary was that there may have been some security issues that were not addressed. What the committee did find was that Ambassador Stevens and his team were anxious to open a Benghazi consulate but could not find a secure location. Nothing blaming Hillary for anything. Two years and millions of dollars wasted. This republican-led witchhunt was for nothing other than to try to damage Hillary stellar time at the Department of State.

For my regular readers I am sure you are tired of my comparing brexit to Trump. I cannot ignore the similarities between the voters that voted to leave the EU in England and those who will vote for Trump. Samantha Bee does a better job than I can ever so I just suggest that you click on the link below and enjoy a little bit of humor and dire warning at the same time.
Out of 50 politicians that Politico surveyed that would normally be chomping at the bit to speak at the convention only a few said they might be interested. Almost everyone else had talking points. They ranged from I’m not going to be attending the convention this year to I am not interested in the speaking position at the convention this year. This is remarkable because a political convention is a 3 Day infomercial for that presidential candidate. And no one wants to be on stage with Trump. We have three weeks until the convention and I will repeat this over and over again one week in political terms is the same as a year in regular terms so let’s not call the body dead yet. Trump could be roaring back to life next week and all of this will seem as far away as the 24-hour sit-in the Democrats had in the house only last Tuesday.
