My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI COMMUNITY, 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.
That’s right, Herman Cain the 999 guy. His stupid plan which would have raised taxes tremendously on the poor and lowered it on the rich would be a perfect fit for the Trump administration’s reverse Robinhood approach to governing.
Poor people pain war on sales taxes than anyone else because they spend every penny they make are buying things whereas rich people invest. This guy’s claim to fame is that he turned around a pizza company godfather’s Pizza. where is godfather’s Pizza now? Haven’t heard about them for a long time.
At a time that this Administration does nothing but hurt those in need this nomination his right in line with their Scrooge like governing philosophy.
He’s willing to do almost anything including destroy our economy to get re-elected. He and his supporters have this wild idea that immigration is bad for our country. Unless he has supporters that are native Americans all of them are immigrants or descendants of immigrants. Just because they’ve got white skin doesn’t mean they’re not from immigrant roots. And just because you think your Anglo-Saxon does not mean you’re not from immigrant Roots. Enough of this crap.
so now he wants to destroy the American economy just to get his point across. Look we’ve seen him do it before. He shut down the government and our GDP growth has fallen and are unemployment rate is it are going to start going up. so this man is dangerous for our country and we all know it even his supporters but they are too stubborn to admit it. Make America great again indeed, America was always great and we do not need this idiot in the White House to make it any better. He’s made it worst.
And why does he insist on making world leaders uncomfortable while answering questions from the media. he gets a perverse Joy from doing this and you can see it in his face. The man is drunk with power.
Can you imagine the uproar from a Liz Cheney if we try to meddle in the Republican primary process. Their heads would explode.
Basically this tells us that there are afraid of the field that the Democrats are mounting to take on Trump in 2020. I think they are feeling the fact that there’s going to be a tidal wave, a blue tsunami that will change the political landscape. That’s why you see Mitch McConnell rushing unqualified activist judges on the federal bench. he is trying to fill every vacancy that he left open during President Obama’s presidency. Shame on Mitch McConnell and the Republicans.
Better Angels, an organization I belong to, says one should listen to the other side. I’m listening and I don’t like what I’m hearing.
First let’s get some things out of the way. The dictionary definition of communism is:
a system in which goods are owned incommonand are available to all as needed
How is paying someone a living wage in anyway communism? The Republicans need to start doing some deep soul-searching because their corporate overlords are now going to threaten their political survival. The middle class is disappearing and AOC is only saying that she’s going to pay her staffers $52,000 a year. And the Republicans think this is outrageous?
The Republican brand is becoming one of corporate cronyism and leaning towards fascism. How is that the party of Lincoln?
I know, it’s hard to believe that tax cuts for the rich is not translating in self into Big refunds for the middle class and the poor. That’s how the Republican cookie crumbles literally. People are up in arms on the internet. They are saying the only reasonthey voted for the current occupants of the White House was for tax relief. Instead he raised their taxes! Not only did you erase it there taxes but he penalized States like California that have income tax where you can no longer deduct that from your income. So here we are California taxation without representation from the federal government because we are certainly not as well represented as Wyoming or Montana or The Dakotas with their 500,000 people and still two US Senators.
Isn’t he presidential! President Donald Trump kisses a printed example of what a new tax form may look like during a meeting on tax policy with Republican lawmakers in the Cabinet Room of the White House on Nov. 2, 2017, in Washington, as House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., watch him what I would hope would be horror, but that’s Paul Ryan and no.

President Trump during the campaign said that the United States would be tired of all the winning that he would bring to the country. I am tired but it’s not because of the winning it’s because of all the losing. We put money out to these corporations and then one after the other day back down but keep the money. how about the carrier plant that he talked so much about when he was in transition. or the Ford factory, there’s no point in my going on and on.
He’s a terrible deal maker and everyone knows it except for him. Maybe he does know it and maybe Seth Meyers has something when he does that sticks about the small voice of insecurity in Trump’s head.
It is said that’s when something happens in your life that’s very memorable, like the Challenger explosion or the death of President Kennedy or 911 you remember exactly what happened and vivid images. Well I was a stockbroker at Prudential Bache in Fort Lauderdale Florida in 1987. I remember that day well when the market crashed. we had computers on her desk but they were nothing like what we have now obviously, and they were programmed for a stock market that was running around 2,000. when it crashed below 500 the programmers had never envisioned it to do that so they all went black. We were blocked and our clients will calling us hysterically.
in today’s numbers it would be like a stock market Fall of 3,000 points in one day. I loved that job until that day. I helped a lot of customers try to save some of their wealth. But the business changed at that point and within a year I had quit being a stockbroker. Many of my fellow brokers work doing things that should never be done to clients. Much of the hierarchy of Prudential-Bache went to jail, including its president, and for good reason.
So we can we are repeating history oh, it feels like I’m in a Time Warp, between the similarities with Watergate and now the stock market.
There is an expression in politics that says “it’s the economy stupid”, so correct. So I hope and pray that this is not going to happen to us but with the government shutdown, the ridiculous tax increases for the wealthy, trade Wars I don’t see a very Rosy future for our economy. More than any thing that Michael Cohenn could say.
White House press secretaries I’ve had it hard in the Trump Administration. How could we forget Sean Spicer and the amount of lies that he’s feud off of the podium on his very first press briefing. And of course although he was not press secretary, Anthony scaramucci who was the press director for the White House for about 28 days also had it hard. And now we come to who I feel the least amount of empathy for, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I believe that she relishes debasing the press wow lying to the American people. Mike Wallace would be very happy with his son right now. He put it right on the line of the fact that this wall is not going to stop terrorists. this wall will do nothing but empty out the coffers of the American government as for what? Yes, there is a President who is about to be indicted, impeached or hopefully he and his vice president will resign.
The current occupant of the White House scenes to really like to talk in extreme generalizations. All government workers are Democrats. All Mexicans are rapists. Terrorists are coming up from the southern border all the time. And so on and so on and so on.
I guess I’m one of those criminals because I do not in any way support aboard a wall.
I am so looking forward to a plain old boring politician in the White House again.
Have you ever heard the word war in a positive tone?
There’s a reason for that because war is ugly and so are Trade Wars. This protectionist presidency is doing everything in its power to bring our economy down to the level of Russia. Yes we’re a behemoth but so were so many other great powers that have fallen to the wayside of History.
