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.
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.
Finally, somebody verbalized what I have been thinking forever. We need a translator whenever this man start stalking if you want to call it that.
Donald Trump and his incompetent White House cannot do anything correctly. I’m not sure if it was a trait being played on Trump by the outgoing president of Mexico or if it was in confidence, either way it’s sad. Sad…
I applaud the Obama Administration and the US government for making this pledge to Israel. Israel is a stabilizing force in the Middle East. I hope this laid to rest forever the idea that President Obama has not been pro-israel. This is the largest amount do United States has ever pledged to any country in its history. This is a long-term 10-year deal. This is being done in the last few months of the Obama Administration. It would have been very easy for the Obama Administration to just not do anything. But it has taken a stand, I stand reinforcing America’s commitment to Israel and its continued survival. Congratulations to both prime minister Netanyahu and President Obama for coming to this agreement.
If something happens to Hillary Clinton Donald Trump should be held criminally liable. This is like someone screaming fire in the middle of a movie theater. He should know that his first amendment rights are not Unlimited. And to even make a suggestion that someone harm his opponent makes him ineligible to hold the office of President of the United States. I am so mad right now that I don’t know what else to say that wouldn’t be obscenities.
Once again Senator Sanders fumbles when he’s not in his comfort zone attacking Wall Street or the big Banks. “Senator Sanders argument that the Panama FTA would ‘effectively bar the United States from going after tax evaders in Panama’ is wrong,” said a joint statement by Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), the senior Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee and former senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.). Sanders “asserted that combating tax haven abuse in Panama would be a violation of the Panama FTA. There are many flaws in this argument, but one is particularly obvious: the Panama FTA clearly states that ‘nothing in this Agreement shall apply to taxation measures.’” To run for president one needs to do their homework. Senator Sanders making these statements that have no basis in fact is the Republican way of doing things.

When we signed the trade agreement with China, they got hooked. When we signed NAFTA, Mexico got hooked. When the Soviet Union started to talk to us, they got hooked. Cuba and Iran now join the league of nations that are hooked on United States of America. The culture of the United States is infectious. It’s aspirational to the rest of the world. And I am so tired of the naysayers saying that America is in at sunset years. We have a satellite the size of a grand piano orbiting Pluto all made in the USA. General Motors is about to launch a car next year that will get 200 miles on one charge and with the tax incentives will cost to consumer only $20,000! The reason the ayatollahs sign this agreement is simply because seven thirty eight percent of the population of Iran wanted this Agreement signed. Having a ran as a frienenemy is much better than having them has a full flight enemy They want peace, and so should our leaders. Leaders who push for war or just pushing to maintain their coffers full of money from the military industrial complex. AVB
This makes all the sense in the world. President Obama will use the Congress has the bad cop in the follow-up negotiations with Iran. he now has leverage that he did not happy for to get the best deal out of Iran and their leaders. AVB
