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.
And here we are. Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Clarence Thomas is on the Supreme Court. I cannot imagine what it’s like for the women on the Supreme Court. Having to face these monsters on a daily basis. I don’t care about people saying that they have moved on. These are terrible people and history will judge them poorly. I’m worried that history will judge us poorly.
Clarence Thomas has had a continued abuse of his position on Supreme Court. He refuses to recuse himself in matters that his wife has financial dealings in. It’s corruption, let’s not mince words here.
I shudder at the decisions that these two men in the future. Brett Kavanaugh was on the record saying that the courts should never Grant new rights to people. The cord was always the place where we looked for Justice and now it’s gone for the foreseeable future.
45 told us we would be tired of winning and I am so tired of all of this winning. During his time in office. Deaths have gone up by 30%.
He has not funded the programs that he claims to want to fund. His budget is reducing the amount of money for opioid addiction and deaths. He’s refusing to look at programs Across the Nation that have worked in reducing opioid use within communities. He’s not looking to win he’s looking to save money on our young people’s lives.
Opioid deaths have risen 30% since he is in office that’s all you need to know.
Donald Trump has called himself the king of debt, perhaps you should have called himself the Emperor of debt. Ironically a huge amount of the debt is being held by Goldman Sachs. He does not like transparency. People who don’t like transparency are usually doing something wrong.
Please, do not be fooled by this. He is a master of the media and knows that the more his face is on television the better it is for him. He will say and do anything to be on TV. So now he’s trying to go the humility route. That’s not what his supporters want to hear. He’s Invincible, supposedly, and the only one that can fix America, supposedly. And now he’s going off message.
He will come up short in November and it’s n-no way thanks to our media that have been like whores around him. I’m more worried about the long-term effects of what he has done to our political system then to his presidency.
Until Hillary Clinton gets on stage and announces her vice presidential pick all of this is background static. I think that Senator Cory Booker, a true American Hero, would make a great vice presidential pick. Hillary has the luxury I love having a myriad of choices that would be perfect as her vice president. That is not what can be said at all about Donald Trump. Those who would consider becoming Trump’s vice presidential candidate are power hungry and are also ignoring the fact that they are hitting their star to a supernova that’s going to explode in their face.
Hillary will make a choice that is good for the country. Donald Trump will make a choice that is good for Donald Trump.
Is this really about Sanders or Trump? I think it may be that there are some hoodlums out there using this as a way of masquerading as supporters but who are truly criminals deep inside. When this country stops allowing political discourse, we have lost our country. Yes I know that these are individual cases. But I have been involved in politics for almost a half a century and I’ve never heard of this kind of behavior. What’s disturbing to me is not what is happening today but rather what we may see in four or eight years. Then the authorities may take matters into their own hands and then our freedoms start being taken away because a bunch of hoodlums are Behaving Badly right now. I do blame Senator Sanders and Donald Trump for not nipping this in the bud early on in this campaign. When Sanders struck out the part in his press release regarding the violence at the Democratic Nevada convention, the censorship was wrong. Violence should never be ignored or condoned by looking the other way. AVB http://www.cbsnews.com/news/female-journalists-report-harassment-from-bernie-sanders-supporters/
There will always be exceptions. That has become the mantra for Donald Trump. Whether it’s tax increases or letting those he likes into the country. I hope the American people ask themselves who the hell is this man that we’re trying to put into the Oval Office? The new mayor of London hopes that Hillary Clinton trashes Donald Trump in the election. He said has never commented on foreign elections before, I guess there will always be exceptions.

I have watched John Dickerson over the years with great interest. He’s a very personable person on television and does make good commentary. Unfortunately, I believe his own personal use leaked out a lot in the way he reports the news. for example he will never say something bad about one of the GOP candidates will file in turn chiming in on some issue that either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama in the past have had. if he is to be a true moderator he needs to learn how to rein in his personal opinions.
