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.
I’ve been communicating with one of my best friends today telling him that it’s becoming someone disheartening to see this President and his actions. He’s out there in the open, figuratively shooting someone on 5th Avenue.
What is more upsetting to me take the fact of the Republican Party anyway it’s leaders, say they’re okay with it. I keep thinking of this scenario. Let’s say, Norway, comes up to Joe Biden and says “Hey we’ve got information on Donald Trump, want it? All things being equal other than having a body buried somewhere in the White House this President seems to be immune from bad information about him. But in the future, hopefully we’ll have another president whose last name is not Trump, I wonder how the Republicans defending this President and his words yesterday would feel?
I’ve been a lifelong Democrat but there has been Republicans that I have admired. But when Mitch McConnell if his swarthy face says that if one of theSupreme Court justices passes away next year would he replaced at Justice unlike what he did was Merrick Garland, he says yes. So as far as I’m concerned the Republican party or the party of trump is morally bankrupt and yes we need a conservative voice but one that respect the laws of our country and are not blatant hypocrites.
Until I am proven wrong, I feel very pessimistic about the future of our country and especially the democracy our forefathers envisioned us for us. I pray to the universe that I am wrong
I mean no offense to those of you of the religious persuasion. Let us not forget this is the same church that for years believed that the Earth was flat and still thinks that the Earth was created in 6 days.
And now they are define scientific study again. This time they’re affecting the lives of the lgbtqi community in ways they don’t seem to understand. Many in the community or raised under the Catholic faith and they were holding thatthe Catholic faith would walk in to the 21st Centuries with open arms. Sadly they are not. I have so many friends who are conflicted because of the doctrine of the Catholic Church. Are we supposed to believe in the precepts laid out 2,000 years ago as scientific fact?it’s mind-boggling that a church with over a billion followers and be stuck in the 15th century. I was raised as a Jew, but I no longer practice because I have seen what religion does to the world. let’s look back at history and think about the wars that were not caused by religion and you’ll see that it’s very few and far between. Honestly the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq were caused by religion and I can go on and on Century to Century listing Wars that religion brought on. Why? Why?
Even the article fron NBC says that this is basically sticking a finger in the eye of the lgbtqi community during gay pride month celebrations.

I have yelled at the TV more times than I’d like to think about when Allen West was on spewing his form of conservatism. The NRA must truly be in trouble if this guy comes out and says that both Wayne LaPierre and the new president who replaced Oliver North are lying about access that the board has to financial information. Financial information like the $200,000 in suits that Wayne LaPierre has purchased on the NRA account. What is it with all of these Republicans buying expensive suits, remember Paul Manafort’s?
The NRA started as a gun safety organization and now it’s a purveyor of violence across the country. They claim the second amendment is there right to unlimited arms and yet they seem to forget the first words of the 2nd amendment which say “A well regulated Militia” and yet they negate the word regulated and go for all-out armament of themselves. It’s absurd and it’s even more absurd that courts have upheld this. Look at Australia which had a mass murder in 1998 and also had a strong gun ownership history. They banned guns bought them back and there has been complete drop in gun violence unprecedented in our times. Look at how fast New Zealand acted upon the same issue. It’s funny I’m watching the show called Janet King which is an Australian show that reminds me of Law & order. And season 2 there have been 19 murders over the course of 15 months by gun violence and they have set up a commission to figure out how to stop gun crime. 19 murders! That’s not even an hour in the United States. And by the way the guns were all imported to Australia from the US, any surprises there? It’s making us a hated country.
The United States of America is the number one gun exporter in the world and that’s the legal ones.
When is enough is enough? Sandy Hook, Parkland, Pulse Nightclub, all church, synagogue and mosque shootings or those on army bases? We have become numb to this violence just like we have become numb to the hatred spewing out of this white house and it’s time for a change before we lose our America forever.
I’m not sure if we are supposed to be feeling sorry for Roger Stone. do you know how many lower-income individuals are languishing in jails across our country because they could not come up with $10,000 in bail money let alone 250,000. So no I don’t feel sorry for Roger Stone who in my opinion has never done an honest day’s work. Putting on loud outfits and weird high where does not constitute a days of work to me. Having a group of fascists as my so-called security makes me want to throw up on him. I agree with those in the community of Richmond that do not want him at a strip club cocking his brand of hatred.
I think the gag order by judge Amy Berman Jackson was quite clear and she has been bending over backwards for this man. I think that she is playing the long game and is going to hit him, bigley to use a term by his favorite politician, when it comes to sentencing. Anyway I hope so.
Wow, the Network that has made its claim to fame over the moniker fake news actually had fake news on its own broadcast just like it does every day. This one was so blatant that they had to come out and say “we’re sorry”. In actuality the graphic that showed Trump’s approval rating at 55% was Trump’s disapproval rating. His actual approval rating is steady at 43% even though Attorney General Barr put out a false summary vindicating Trump. The Mueller team was quick and explaining that they’d never vindicated Trump or said that he was not guilty of anything and yet this Roy Cohn Attorney General was lying through his teeth to the American people.
sure we elected Trump not by a majority of the votes but through a stupid system called The electoral college. The American people may have made that mistake but they see what’s happening and we’ll vote this man out of office unless the Republicans cheat like they always do
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?
I’m not a psychiatrist I don’t even play one on TV, but this man and his ability to spread lies and false information is beyond the pale.
We’re at a tipping Point. I truly believe the country is ready to go back to normality. The NRA sent out a four-page fundraising letter a couple of days ago saying that they’re about to go bankrupt. I hope that they go bankrupt because they’re morally bankrupt. We see that even the Supreme Court is now siding with gun safety advocates. So one by one we are chipping away at this evil empire which has had a grip on our country. Look I know we’re not New Zealand but they do have a gun loving society. It’s not in their constitution and maybe that’s what we need to change. No not maybe we need to change our Constitution and get rid of the stupid amendment. It was written at a time when the government had muskets and the people had muskets and so if the government went crazythe citizenry had a way to defend itself. I don’t think they envisioned a world where the government has tanks, atomic bombs, cruise missiles and the list goes on. All the AR-15s in the world could not do anything to hold our government accountable. so I don’t understand the need for this amendment anymore.
We have more guns in our country then we have people. I don’t own a gun, I’ve never even held one so to me this is just an illness that needs to be cured.
If you do a search at the bottom of the blog’s home page for the word brexitread what I wrote the day after the election.
Basically said that I hope we in the United States don’t walk down the same path that those in the UK did on brexit. I implored people to go out and vote and make sure that we don’t wake up to a trump presidency the day after the election in November 2016. And here we are
I am honestly tired of all of the ridiculously early campaigning that we’re dealing with right now and then mccratic party. I am literally receiving two to three emails from every Democratic candidate that I have not asked to unsubscribe from. And we are just under 600 days away from the election!
Trump can win
Trump can win
Trump can win
Let that sink in and put aside our differences and support whomever the Democratic primary process brings as our nominee. I don’t like Bernie Sanders and I think he would be a terrible president but at the end of the day I would vote for him over Donald J Trump. It’s a shame that the Bernie Sanders supporters then do the same in 2016. I still have or had arguments because I won’t do it anymore with Sanders supporters saying that Trump is better than Hillary Clinton as a president. these people are so myopic and their vision of the world that it’s ridiculous.
So register to vote and make sure you vote both in the primaries and especially on that fateful November Day in 2020.
Trump saluting a North Korean General at the Hanoi failed talks. This alone would have been a scandal if it had been done by President Obama I would have been a reason for the Republicans to impeach him. Times have changed.
The judge makes it quite clear. The United States of America is failing at its minimum duty of keeping its citizens and those who reside within its borders safe.
I keep returning to two and a half years ago when life was normal and we didn’t have a man in the White House who has absolutely no humanity, empathy or any of the other human traits that would be a minimum requirement for the presidency of the United States. And yet here we are.
I am very much a part of the never Bernie movement on social media. Bernie Sanders chipped away at Hillary Clinton during the primaries and was only a half-hearted supporter after she won the nomination. That did not stop him from requiring her to spend over $250,000 on private jets for him and his wife. Weird that a man of the people wants private jets.
I blame Bernie Sanders for what we’re dealing with right now and I will do everything in my power to make sure he is not the nominee of the Democratic Party.I truly believe the Democrats should nominate a Democrat any Democrat except for Bernie Sanders.
So Senator Sanders I lay the judge’s ruling at your feet as well as Trump’s.
I’m going to be 65 on April 30th. I never thought I would watch a president of the United States sell us out to one of our greatest enemies. The same president who before taking office vilified President Obama for not doing enough against North Korea. So here we are capitulating to them. This is the same president that tore up a very good agreement to hold back nuclear development in Iran. And now here we are capitulating to North Korea.
In the words of oversight chairman Cummings, we must get back to a new normal, we must give a future generation a stronger democracy than we got and this President is destroying democracy every day.
I have been reluctant to use the word impeachment in my blog but I believe it’s time.
