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.
Even though I was born in the last century actually in the middle of the last century I have never had to go out and hunt for my food. Since I was a child we would go into the store and find beautifully wrapped pieces of meat in the meat section of the store. So to me this notion that you needs guns for hunting is foreign.
So now we are facing another threat to the reason for having a gun. Beers that have been infected with a wasting disease. This wasting disease has not thankfully been transmitted to humans yet. I remember when AIDS was traced to African monkeys. Jumping across a species is not unknown for a predator virus.
So now I need to be convinced that guns are so necessary in our society. Really, what good are they other than to shoot other people? It makes no sense and what’s makes even less sense is why hunters and gun owners are so reluctant to be licensed just like we are driving a car. This idea that gun ownership is some an amiable right was true when the government could not fight back with more than a musket. Now the government can fight back with helicopters and weapons of mass destruction, what good would having a gun or rifle do against an armed government? None!
Me thinks not all is peachy on the Republican side of the Senate.
Chuck grassley is not one of my favorite people. Chuck Grassley understands what McConnell has just set off. This is much worse than what Chuck Schumer did when he change the rules in the senate for confirmations to a majority as opposed to a 60-vote needed. Chuck Grassley understands that there’s going to be a democratic presidents maybe in the near future. Chuck Grassley understands that this is a president that is going to be disastrous for the Republican Party. sure the Republicans cheat but when they do they open the door for others to do the same.
I look forward to a democratic Congress and President. But if there’s a Democratic president she can declare National emergencies for things that are actually National emergencies. Something like climate change or gun control.
This false emergency is a smoke screen to hide behind for the Trump Administration and all of the problems that is besieging them.
Paul Ryan has no legacy. This is supposed to be some math wizard what did they call him a policy wonk, no such thing, he’s a creature of politics. He hitched his wagon to Trump and now he is out on his own in Wisconsin. I wonder if he plans to run for president in 2020? What that be interesting?
Would it not be fun to spread some holiday cheer to the man who has made our lives miserable for the last umpteen years.
I refuse to watch the propaganda video from the Trump campaign but the number that they had said was 1-800 hotline which takes you to some credit card protection scheme. I guess around Trump you should have your credit card protected.
The idiot in Chief in the White House who is only concerned with his uneducated base and his corporate overlords. it’s like he doesn’t have a 13 year old son that is going to be impacted by climate change. But as he said in the interview with Fox when they ask them what his process for making decisions were and he replied I don’t have one. This completely illustrates his horrendous 2 years and the White House, no thought process.
The environmental radical that Ryan zinke should be looking at is the one that looks back at him in the mirror. this man has made a travesty of the position of Secretary of the interior. He has systematically taking away National Park Land from the people for the use of the oil companies. He thinks he is a dictator. He actually flies a flag over the department of the interior when he’s in the office. Does he think he’s a queen of England? He wrote on a horse on his first day into his job as the Secretary of the interior, does he think he’s a cowboy oh wait. This man along with so many others in this Administration are the swamp creatures on nuclear flu fuel and should no longer be in the offices that they hold because they are not doing the will of the people.
We have one Earth and this man doesn’t give a damn all he cares about is how much money he can get from special interest. Shame on him and this Administration.
I’ll be honest, I have been overloaded with political stuff on television. So I buried myself into British shows on Netflix. The ones I watch have a common theme there are murders and they are solved at the end of the show. You never see the gruesome act just the end result. The shows I’ve been watching our murders in paradise and midsomer murders. I say all this because one thing that has struck me after watching it seems no one has handguns the UK. Even the police. It’s fun watching police chase after people because they can’t shoot at them. How refreshing.
Now to the NRA, the reason for this post. The NRA has done everything in his power to make sure that every American has access to multiple guns. They don’t care how many bullet holes it’s hairs into people’s bodies, the bottom line comes first. The NRA is no longer group of people who are hunters and sportsman. They become a political branch of the GOP. I think. Russia what country was no guns, why would the NRA be there? Do you really think that Putin wants guns and every household? No.
Who have told you that already that they are a cause for the bloodshed in this country. Doctors need to repair the wounds caused by these terrible weapons. Honestly the shootings that we’ve seen of late had been done with weapons of mass destruction.
NRA I don’t suggest you attack doctors, they do have the Hippocratic oath but…
Let’s be honest, we have an incompetent in the White House.
He doesn’t understand government or its need to exist.
He doesn’t understand America’s place in the world or why we need to maintain it.
He doesn’t understand that this is one World with one ecology and we are at the biggest wrecker of the environment and we need to address that but again he doesn’t understand.
He doesn’t seem to have a big grasp of anything other than his ego.
So when you hear veteran journalist like Bob Woodward who covered nine presidents say that he was shocked by something that the Tangerine nightmare said you need to listen. I watched an interview on Bill Maher and it’s telling that even Bob Woodward has temptations about where our country is going under the leadership of this man.
On the same program, Bret Stephens, who used to work for the Wall Street journal now who works for the New York Times and is no longer Republican was on. I remember the days that I would yell at the TV when Brett Stevens was on but Trump has made those go away. Bret Stephens openly said that he is worried that on January 20th 2021 we’re not going to see an orderly exit from the White House if Trump is voted out. I agree with him. And that’s chilling.
I rarely agree with the Tangerine nightmare in the White House but today I do. He’s right we need to do something about climate change.obviously these fires are caused by this phenomena and I am so happy to hear that he wants to do something about it.
Oh wait, no he’s not. The republicans in Congress have a saying, it’s ABC, anybody but California. The state that produces the most tax revenue for the federal government is ostracized by Republicans because we don’t vote for them in great numbers.
Taxation without representation that’s where California now stands.
How come he doesn’t talk about pulling funds from Florida or Texas when they have hurricanes? oh that’s because they vote for him or he hopes they will. What a piece of trash we have in this White House.
Nothing about the dead and injured because of this project fire from the White House. What a piece of trash we have in this White House.
Poor Pinocchio, he’s getting a bad rap. He lied a couple of times but it’s so unfair that his name be dragged through the mud with the Tangerine nightmare’s.
I remember In a place far far away and a Time long ago when a President would speak and it was mostly the truth. Oh wait that was two years ago and here. It’s difficult to watch an institution that I have looked up to for all of my life being destroyed by this man for his own purposes.
