My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ 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.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson discusses ‘Populism and the Right’ during the National Review Institute’s Ideas Summit at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel March 29, 2019 in Washington, DC. In recent weeks, Carlson has lost most of the advertisers of his show over a boycott sparked by his controversial comments. PHOTO: CHIP SOMODEVILLA/GETTY IMAGES
Do United States was always looked upon and will be looked upon again as a Bastion of freedom. This regime that we call the Trump presidency will pass. It will take some time but the world will regain its belief in the system that the United States has had for almost 250 years. One man cannot do that but he do damage to its image, and he has. Luckily, this demagogue is inept. The people he’s around himself or inept. So when his policies go so far away from what the moral fabric of this country is built on they don’t know how to carry out his vision of Darkness.
This action on the border it’s not something the United States of America would normally do. Government employees are just following the edicts of this regime. This regime will fall and although it will take time, the United States will regain its position as the leader in human rights across the globe.
Let’s face it, white nationalist, neo-nazis and the alt-right feel they have one the election. And in fact they are right. They now have an ally in the White House in Donald Trump. This has fueled they’re coming out of the closet as it were. Hate crime since the election are up 500%. Middle school kids are hanging nooses and restrooms. What these children are hearing at home is going to spread across our country. You know we look at Germany in the thirties and don’t understand how people could become mesmerised by such a hateful rhetoric. And here we are supposedly the greatest country ever falling into that same trap.
As much as I do not want to admit it, I believe there is some validity and what this article is saying. So it is imperative that we, Hillary Clinton supporters, do not become complacent. The election is not won until she has over 270 electoral votes. It’s time to donate and call and make sure we go and take our friends to the polls.
The alternative is US waking up on November 9th saying what the British said after brexit, what have we done.
Let’s call, and love this turn of a phrase, a spade a spade Steve Bannon is a white supremacist. Being a white supremacist comes with some baggage. Usually you are anti-Semitic, borderline psychopath, some self-hatred and not very good at parties. So, when you read the court documents that say that he was mad at his wife for sending their children to school that had Jews because Jews raise whiny brats that should not come as a surprise from a white supremacist. This alt-right name is similar to how conservatives have changed words so that they sound more palatable at the dinner table. So let’s get are dictionaries straight. Alt right means white supremacist. Pro-life is someone who wants they have too much to do with a woman’s body. Death tax is attacks that doesn’t click in until the inheritance is over 5.4 million dollars. But conservatives love changing words around and ALT-right is their newest and greatest hit. We used to call them the KKK, neo-nazis, skinheads and the like but now they homogenize the band called alt-right. It’s time that we write into our television stations and newspapers and other media outlets and the man that they stop using this alt-right and start calling it what it really is white supremacy. Donald Trump seems to pick them really well from a doctor that looks like he may be creating a Frankenstein monster somewhere to his new field operations manager that was fired by, of all things, Chris Christie over Bridgegate. If I were Donald Trump I would go into his campaign’s human resources department and scream at the top of my lungs “You’re fired!”.
