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.
I read what the historians say in the article and I find it preposterous. Basically they claim that MD 18th and 19th century there were confirmed bachelors who had sexual relationships with men but the historians say they were not gay! I think we’re dealing with semantics here because the word gay came out after Stonewall but homosexuality, pansies and the other slurs that were used in those time periods were aimed specifically at the people we now call gay.
Mayor Pete says that the odds are we had a gay president in the past. We’ve had 45 presidents and approximately 4.5% of the population identify themselves as gay. You do the math.
Historians like history to stay etched in stone and so therefore I think that they may be close-minded to what is a pretty obvious tell in a couple of our presidents intimate lives. I’m not going to be here outing any president and nor did mayor Pete, I think it was the historians who did it in the article.
Have you ever bought something once you got home you realized you had been conned? Buyer’s remorse? I guess that’s what a lot of people who for some reason had a weird dislike for Hillary Clinton are feeling after two-and-a-half years of this presidency.
What’s surprising is the number of people willing to say this in public. MSNBC is littered with people including some of their anchors who were Republicans that I yelled at while they served under different in administrations who are now either Independents or straight up Democrats. I don’t think it’s just Trump. I think if you throw into the mix Mitch McConnell and the hypocrisy of a lot of leaders in Congress like Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz you see why people are having their come to Jesus moment.
Trump is a con man. What’s so funnythe word con man that Trump hates so much is becoming synonymous with him on Google searches. Good for yourself, do Trump con man as a search and see what happens.
Today Trump pulled back from the brink of war with Iran. I think he finally realized that he has calmed himself into the presidency and I don’t think he wants that job anymore. Maybe that’s why he is making so many errors including all of these undisciplined interviews across what he called fake news media networks.
Is the Republican party Doom to be on the junk pile of History? Can’t say that. Americans have very short memories case in point is how they are looking with nostalgia upon George HW Bush and his presidency even though he took us into an unnecessary war and was the cause of a near world depression. You put him next to Trump and he looks great.
I’m hoping that this man is not re-elected but until I watch him leave the White House I won’t believe anything about what people are prognosticating.
Purdue Pharma has literally hundreds of thousands of people’s blood on their hands. The sorrow that they have caused for the counselors people in our country who have become addicted and some of whom have died is unmeasurable.
Just in case you don’t know who they are they are the marketers and creators of Oxycodone. Oxy has even permeated my life. My best friend, or former best friend, was addicted to this drug and stole money from me while I was in the intensive Care Unit at Mount Sinai hospital in Miami Beach. This is a friend that I had known for 39 years. That’s what drugs do.
So I join John Oliver in the Manning that’s galleries and museums across the country remove the Sackler name from there positions of Honor and remind people that the Sackler name is covered in blood.
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.
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.
What happened to Stephen Miller that makes him hate people so much? this is the kind of thinking that created at off Hitler. His rabbi did a sermon calling him a terrible person. does he not realize that’s somewhere down the line his family were immigrants? For some reason Miller doesn’t sound like a native American name.
First and foremost let’s stop calling it Spygate. That’s what 45 wants us to call it and there is no spy and there is no gate. There is a Russia and there is a gate and there for Russia gate. I spy is someone who is put into somewhere as a means of getting information. An informant is someone who sees something that is suspicious and tells the authorities. Here we have an informant not a spy. And until we stop using the stupid word spy because the idiot in the White House thinks that it has good television sound let’s call it what it is Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russians. If his homeland security secretary has not read up on what the intelligence agencies have said, they have said that the Russians helped Trump win the election and did everything in their power to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And the discussion now let’s on to impeachment.
Since I heard the breaking news about this story my first thought was that Trump lost the election today. Sure, other people say that. Other people are not being interviewed by Access Hollywood. He knew he was being recorded. This is unacceptable Behavior even if he were merely a reality star but he wants to be the president of the United States. He wants our children to see him as our moral compass. His Compass is pointing the wrong way at all times. He can deflect by saying that Bill Clinton has said things like this, I’m sure he has and so if I. But I certainly never did it when I was being recorded. That kind of hubris is deadly for someone who is the leader of the Free World.
So now that the head of the Republican party wants to cut his losses he has started saying that Trump is unacceptable. He should have thought about that when he jumped on the Trump train. I think he saw his job going down the drain today. Whatever happened to the autopsy of the 2012 election where they were going to be a more accepting and Condor Republican Party? The chairman of the Republican party doesn’t seem to care.
The short and sweet of it is that Paul Manafort is going to be relegated to a lesser role. And if anyone expected Donald Trump to Pivot they are going to be unpleasantly surprised. The pivot is coming and is going to become meaner and more racist over the next 83 days. As Donald Trump realises he’s losing, and losing badly to a girl, he like every drowning person is going to try to take everybody down with him. The people that he’s installed are right-wing extremists and are going to make this a very ugly campaign. But to be honest as far as Donald Trump’s campaign, it has been anything but pretty.
To say that the parent company of USA Today is not friendly towards Democrats is an understatement. So this article and poll makes quite an argument in the favor of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. The percentage of young people voting for Hillary as of now is unprecedented. Not since the days of yet nom have we seen young people haul supporting one candidate.
We cannot rest until November 8th, becoming complacent could be our downfall. We need to keep up the good fight all the way to the finish line. If the Olympics showed us anything it’s that perseverance is what wins the race.
