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.
I must be one of those violent Democrats because I did not watch anything to do with Kavanaugh’s Vote or swearing-in. Hand the hypocrisy of having a second swearing-in just baffles me. But then everything that this White House does baffles me.
I rarely ask that you go to the link that I post regarding the stories. I do urge you to go and watch the video for yourself. It’s rather disturbing.
My divorce from Facebook is coming up on a year. I deactivated, deleted or however you want to say my Facebook account on November 11th 2017. I have not regretted it one minute. What I have seen his how ubiquitous Facebook has become. I cannot interact with the Stonewall Democratic party here in Los Angeles without Facebookas well as someone who does have Facebook. That being said the problems with Facebook are so ingrained that I truly believe it’s going to take a massive Exodus for them to start listening to us.
Oh and I did lose 55 pounds after getting rid of it and have not gained another pound. Kudos to me.
If you do a search on my blog for deleting or deactivating Facebook you will find step by step instructions. Our privacy is well worth a little inconvenience.
I’m in constant pain so I have issues with sleeping. I slept a little bit later this morning than normal. I turned on the TV expecting the normal chaos created by the Trump Administration and instead I thought I was having a dream. There was President Barack Obama making one of his amazing speeches. What a way to wake up! He mentioned the t-word by name and called out all of the terrible policies of this Administration. He told us that our vote means something, he gave us the Hope for Change.
I believe the country is going through a nervous breakdown with this presidency. I wake up every morning to see what has happened to our country. Whether or not we are going to war or some important social program has been gutted. This man is frenetic and has no concept of how to run a government or a country and should not be in that office.
And then there’s the corruption. Not the corruption that that one conjures up for example bribery. I’m talking about the corruption of dumping 40000 documents on the lap of the opposition party the night before the hearing for a supreme court nominee. The corruption that the legislative branch has given up all power to the Executive Branch. The corruption of trying to make the judicial branch a reflection of the Republican mindset.
People say that this coming election is the election of our lifetime and they are correct.
Stephanie Clifford also known as Stormy Daniels along with her attorney, Michael Avenatti, May well be the Catalyst that causes the Trump ship to sink. I wasn’t of this opinion right away. I thought Playboy model Karen McDougal was more believable in her interview with Anderson Cooper than was Stormy Daniels. But both women need to be given credit because dare truth was absolutely the truth. At the end of the day everything they both have said about their dealings with Trump have been corroborated by multiple individuals.
with Trump we’re dealing with an individual who thinks he and he alone is above the law. This was something that was clear from the time he tried to get out of going to Vietnam for the lame reason that he had bone spurs. And through his history as a failed developer he cheated his way through every business deal. He’s a cheat and got into the White House by cheating and now the American people know that. What to me was more important than anything that happened this week was the interview with the juror in the Paul manafort case that wanted Paul manafort to be innocent but said that he wasn’t and the evidence was overwhelming. She confessed to wear a make America great again hat to the courthouse. But she left her hat in the car and brought her citizenship into the courtroom. I believe this is giving a lot of people out there validation and the ability to walk away from Trump and his lies.
Bill Maher’s does this bit where he says that he’s not sure that it’s a fact but he knows that it’s true and I will emulate him and saying I’m not sure it’s a fact that I know it’s true that if you fired all the white nationalist in the White House we wouldn’t have a President anymore.
With all the rhetoric of hate being spewed from this White House what did this man do to get fired? And why do we still have this president?
People talk about their Protege size and I’ve never understood that concept. Turns out that Senator McCarthy, of the McCarthy hearings, had a protege his name was Roy Cohn, he was a terrible man. Roy Cohn had a protege and his name is Roger Stone, a terrible man. And you know who is friends with both of them, the president of the United States.
It’s not surprising to see this vial image of an idiotic idea called Space Force. Even the money-hungry military doesn’t seem to believe we need this. We need money for Education, we need money to run NASA. When it be nice if we didn’t have to pay Russians to take our people to the International Space Station?
And the use of the swastika in the logo is disgusting and it’s meant to make us all look and it worked.
Don Jr may very well be the downfall of Don senior. Don Jr never thinks before talking. He has been an embarrassment to his family. And now he is going to cause the downfall of the Trump Administration.
you add in the fact that he is cost the American taxpayers over half a million dollars in Secret Service protection solely for his personal use. He went on a trip to the Middle East to open a new Trump property and that cost the Secret Service $258, 000 then he went on a trip to Paris to to show off to his ex wife that he still was a man and that cost the US taxpayer $250, 000. It’s amazing to me how the supposedly fiscally responsible Republicans are wasting money like it’s going out of style. The people benefiting are the very rich on the backs of the very poor.
How did we get a man who has no vision to become the president of the United States? This article talks about a project that Trump planned on being his legacy. Instead it’s a massive failure. Never happened. Remind you of anything?
He is hurting us into a recession, a trade War leading to a economic depression just the things that Hitler used to divide the world into factions that created World War II. Millions died unnecessarily and we as Americans must make sure that he does not get a chance to do this toour country.
Trade wars between allies are unnecessary. That’s why they are our allies. What Trump wants us to be allied with Russia and not with the UK, Canada and the EU. I truly believe he wants to be president for life. I truly believe that he thinks he can create a royal presidency. I truly believe that he thinks that either Ivanka or Jared can take over from him. He looks at North Korea as his model for how he wants United States history to continue. This is a scary time for America and Americans and we must go out and vote. We must donate as much money as we can afford two political parties we believe in. With the likes of citizens united the Koch brothers and those who are aligned with Trump will be pouring billions into elections along with the help of Russia. Give $5 today to the Democratic party and do so each month. Give more if you can.
On November 11th 2017 I deactivated my Facebook account. So here I am, seven months later and 55 pounds lighter.
Sure, there is some inconveniences not to have Facebook but I truly believe that they do not outweigh the infringement upon our privacy and upon the way we think that Facebook is trying to achieve. Deactivating your account is made very difficult by Facebook and the procedure takes about 45 minutes but at the end of the day I don’t miss a single moment of the social media platform.
