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.
Our country is slowly becoming less and less democratic. That’s democratic with a small d.
With the electoral college now negating votes so that the majority no longer can elect a president especially if he’s or she is a Democrat. the last two Republican presidents were not elected by a majority of the American people would rather by the electoral college.
So what are we to do? Vote with our dollars. It’s the only power we have left and it’s limited. There are some brands that are almost impossible to get around but they seem to be the ones who jumped ship from Tucker Carlson early on.
I say boycott. I remember the first time that’s an organized boycott in the United States worked in my memory. it was the grape boycott organized by Cesar Chavez. We stopped buying grapes and it forced grape producers to start paying not a living wage but at least a better wage than they had been.
So I hope that every advertiser that is not a Noah Museum or some erectile dysfunction drug pulls their advertising from Tucker Carlson and from all of the fox programming that promotes hate and distrust of others.

If this is not the company you want the United States to be listed with its time that we take a firm step into the 21st century and abolish the death penalty. How many deaths innocent men and women can our society have on its bloody hands? DNA evidence has cleared so many who have been sitting innocent on death row. can you imagine the stress of being confined when one is innocent? That nightmare should be enough to make us say no to the death penalty. It’s cheaper to house someone in jail for the rest of their life then to goes through the machination of a death penalty appeal process and incarceration.
Last week the Supreme Court stayed the execution of a Buddhist on death row but said no to one man whose only request was that he not be given lethal injection as he was allergic to the chemicals and would suffer greatly. He asked for the gas chamber or some other means but the Supreme Court said no.
Although Michael Cohen has never had a job in the white house because of the weird nature of trumps businesses he is as close to John Dean of Watergate as we can come to today.
John Dean is absolutely correct in his assessment of the current occupant of the White House’s ability to read books or anything for that matter. He seems to have a problem with even a teleprompter. So to think that he would read 400 pages of what must be for the most part of very dry document, I don’t think so.
Trump now claims that he could read the report anytime he wanted to because he’s President. That may be true but it’s 400 pages!honestly I think the four pages of Pulp fiction that attorney general Barr put out 3 weeks ago is even too long for this President. He would need the cliff notes of the bar four-page memo and even at that I don’t think he’d have the attention span to read it all.
It’s amazing now that Barr has told him what is in the report, Trump no longer thinks we should see it. I think that may be a bit suspicious and I’m not alone. He didn’t get a single bump up in the polls after his fake Victory lap that he did prior to us finding out more about the Mueller report. I don’t know when it will come out but it will come out before the election. Trump thinks he has an ace in the Supreme Court. He did not appoint chief justice Roberts who does not want to make the Supreme Court a political tool of the executive branch. So I think that chief justice Roberts is going to do the right thing. If he votes with the for liberals then we will see the report and I truly believe that Congress is going to expedite this all the way up to the Supreme Court as quickly as possible. It’s important for the American people to find out everything there is to know about the shenanigans during the 2016 election so they can make an informed decision in 2020.

Last week I posted about Devin Nunes and his ridiculous suits against two Twitter accounts and a member of the media. By the way he’s also currently Hawking a bill to stop frivolous lawsuits, talk about hilarious and ironic.
Did Russia they don’t believe in free speech. In the United States of America as of April 5th 2019 we still do. So Congressman Nunez put on your big boy pants and stop harassing individuals and Twitter accounts that upset you. You don’t like it please resign from Congress become a private individual and I promise you we will also gladly forget that you even exist. But the publicity whore that you are means I don’t think you will.
I love the parody accounts on Twitter including Devin Nunez his cow that he has soothed. The man is an idiot and he is a disrespect to the office he holds.
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.
Two months ago most of us would have been shocked to find out that one of the main cities in Indiana had a gay mayor. Two months ago most of us did not know who Peter Buttigieg was. And here we are.
So far in this presidential season I have given money to two candidates, Kamala Harris my Senator and Peter Buttigieg. I thought I’d be up front about that right off the bat.
In this age of Russian trolls or Chinese trolls or Iranian trolls we need to be careful who we think we’re hearing information from. Oppo research is going to be released not just by opposing candidates but from other countries now. I believe that it is the goal of those who want to destroy the American system to spread as much mis-information as possible.
I have not made it a secret on my blog that I am a gay man. So sure I was intrigued and somewhat scared to hear there was a gay man running for President. But then I heard him speak and I tried to remove the filter of my being gay as well and I was truly impressed by this 37 year old man. His resume is amazing. He is taken South bend Indiana from the brink of bankruptcy to a thriving City. He has a budget of 385 million dollars and overseas a staff of a thousand within the city. I don’t know how many senators that can claim the same. He served two tours of duty in Afghanistan. He’s a Rhodes scholar, went to Harvard and seems to have his head firmly placed upon his shoulders.
So let the naysayers be naysayers but Democrats stop acting like we are each other’s enemies. sure I say never Brownie and not because I don’t like Bernie Sanders so much but because I truly believe he could quickly and easily lose to the present occupant of the White House and that scares me because I don’t know whether or not our country can survive another four years of this madman.
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.
I’m going to try to preface each one of my blocked posts which have a positive spin for the Democratic Party by saying, nobody can lose an election better than the Democratic Party. I’ve been a Democrat since I was a child and I’ve watched us lose a lot of elections.
All that being said, the present occupant of the White House gave the Democrats a big gift last week. instead of basking in the artificial Glory caused by the delay in the release of the Mueller report, Trumpordered the Department of Justice to abolish Obamacare or the affordable Care act. It is mind-boggling why his weird head would think this was a good idea 20 months before an election. The Democrats wombat the house in a landslide because of healthcare and once again healthcare tops the list of worries that Americans have. Gallup polling is a republican-leaning polling organization so when they say 55% I think this is their top issue, believe them.
Even the turtle, Mitch McConnell, threw up his hands and told Trump that he needs to come up with Anu health care plan for America. This White House couldn’t come up with a new recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies let alone figure out one of the most complicated issues facing this country.
We should stop talking about Russia as a Democratic party and start talking about healthcare, it worked in 2018 and it will win in 2020. Impeachment this close to a national election is a non-starter.
Having picked a completely partisan attorney General has been the biggest mistake that the present occupant of the White House has made. Sure he and his sycophants are doing victory dances all over social media and Fox News. The problem is we don’t know what is in the Mueller report. How can four pages of obviously redacted for content stand in the place of a 400-page report? Decant. There are sentences that were not even complete quotes from the report. And the report clearly state that it does not exonerate Trump from obstruction of justice charges. This report is going to become public and what it does this sugar high that the Republican party is on right now is going to taste very very bitter.
Never has in modern times a president hoped for the demise of a Supreme Court Justice. Can you imagine if President Obama had even suggested that he had a replacement for the chief justice? The Republican heads in Washington would have exploded in unison. They are packing the courts, the federal courts with what they said was their biggest problem with quartz, activist judges. Ruth bader Ginsburg is going nowhere and that this man has the audacity to say he’s already picked her replacement is beyond the pale. And judge Barrett has proven herself to be an anti-abortion zealot someone who will do everything in her power to overturn a woman’s right to control her own body. That’s going to sit well with 51% of the population, don’t you think?
