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.
John McCain was the man that the current occupant of the White House could never be. Whenever he sees John McKay and John McCain’s legacy it must infuriate him. Trump is a coward. He used his dad’s influence to get him out of the Vietnam War. I am the only child of two parents who lost a child before I was born but there was no discussion as to whether or not I would go to Vietnam. Luckily my draft number was very high and I was never called. That does not negate the fact that Trump used fake medical documents to get out of serving his country. When John McCain was captured because his father was a rear admiral the North Vietnamese offer to let him go. He said not without his men and the North Vietnamese tortured him for five years before he was eventually released. I remember the day he was released.
When a woman came up to John McCain in his run for president against President Obama and she said that President Obama was an Arab and a non-believer he rebuked her and I’m sure that it lost him votes with the trumper’s of the world.
But the thing that annoys the orange nightmare in the White House is the thumbs down that he gave when he allowed the affordable Care act to live.
In McCain Trump sees everything he never has been or will ever be. People may act like they love him but do they? how can you love someone who doesn’t love themselves?
Can you imagine the uproar from a Liz Cheney if we try to meddle in the Republican primary process. Their heads would explode.
Basically this tells us that there are afraid of the field that the Democrats are mounting to take on Trump in 2020. I think they are feeling the fact that there’s going to be a tidal wave, a blue tsunami that will change the political landscape. That’s why you see Mitch McConnell rushing unqualified activist judges on the federal bench. he is trying to fill every vacancy that he left open during President Obama’s presidency. Shame on Mitch McConnell and the Republicans.
Better Angels, an organization I belong to, says one should listen to the other side. I’m listening and I don’t like what I’m hearing.
Whatever you want to call it, the president’s faculties are starting to look suspicious. He calls his National Security advisor John Bolton Michael Bolton, he missed writes his own wife’s name and calls her Melanie, he couldn’t even remember his chief of staff’s name General John Kelly. So calling the CEO of Apple whose name is pretty well known by everyone in the world Tim Apple is not just insulting but disturbing.
It’s funny, how a man who decries is hatred for hypocrisy seems to be a hypocrite.
At this point it seems that Bernie Sanders would be better off running as a Republican. He says he wants to change a party from within well why don’t we go after the party that needs the most changing, the GOP. Let’s face it, the GOP has become morally bankrupt. But why would I say that he is aligned with them?
He was favored by Putin over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primaries.
He was absent for the key vote in the Senate that allowed for lifting of the sanctions against Russia and its oligarchs.
His love of Russia seems to go back all the way to 1979 when it really was not okay to spend your honeymoon there.
He says that his taxes are in TurboTax and that his wife can’t get to them.
Does any of this sound familiar?
do some good Senator Sanders and run as a republican against Donald Trump. There’s somebody that you can defeat and make a legacy for yourself.
And by the way the article that’s in the link below is from 2016!
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.
I’m not sure if this is the death throws of an organization that no longer has support even from its own members or is it Pure evil? A little of both maybe.
The new leader of the NRA is Oliver North. Oliver North is used to being subpoenaed because he was right in the middle of the Iran-Contra scandal that play the rate in ministration. Oliver North is not a patriot, the way I see him he is the opposite of a patriot.
How can any organization justify this behavior? I can explain it to you very easily and 5 letters, Trump. In a week where we saw Rodger Stone put a crosshairs, oh I’m sorry I Celtic symbol, over the head of the judge overseeing his case is it surprising that the NRA magazine puts Nancy Pelosi and Gabby Giffords in it’s crosshairs? For those who had been under a rock for the last decade, Gabby giffords was brutally assaulted during a campaign event in Arizona where she was the Congressperson. so you can imagine how onerous seeing this must be to her and her loved ones. She almost died, we watched it on television. And now this despicable organization has the audacity to do this to her.
and it’s last filing the NRA said that it’s about to go bankrupt. As far as I’m concerned it is not only bankrupt fiscally but morally. women 72% of NRA members think that sensible background checks are okay, this organization still holds almost a black male kind of hold over right-wing members of Congress. Each time we have a mass shooting in this country all we hear is prayers for the loved ones. No more, enough is enough, now let’s talk about banning assault weapons, silencers, bump stocks and anything else that is not part of a hunter’s normal Arsenal. Do Hunters use handguns? I don’t think so. Of course I’ve never hunted, it seems absolutely barbaric way of killing a defenseless creature. Yes we meet and yes that’s barbaric and the country is weaning itself off of it.
Dnra needs to be abolished, rubbed out like app parked out cigarettes. This organization used to be an organization that promoted gun safety and now it goes the opposite end of the spectrum and promotes gun fire on victims like Gabby Giffords.
This is what happens when an incompetent person buys their way into an important and vital Department. I truly believe that the Republicans want to dumb down the general population. They have cut school funding as if it’s more fat and yet we need our schools to be stellar. We need to compete with Germany and France and China and what we are doing is a crime to this generation.
I don’t know about you but I remember how I went to school and the the bands that were placed on me regarding learning an instrument, a language, broadening my scope of education. Is civics even taught in school anymore? My Lord I was in Texas and I had a full year of Texas history in 6th grade. this is criminal and the Republicans are the criminals.
So Betsy DeVos is faced with having to return money ordered by court because for-profit schools were overcharging students. She tried everything not to return this money which was rightfully the students. She needs to go but so does Trump.
I’ll preface this by saying I am not a fan of Jeff Bezos.
That being said, I’m certainly not a fan of the National enquirer or its parent corporation run by David Pecker. Yes, I used his name because it was funny in a sophomoric way.
I was just talking to a friend of mine about this. I had a caregiver about 3 years ago who was a gay man in his early 60s. He was well-educated and had a career as a character actor in Hollywood. He would take me to the grocery store and as we will check out he would short reading of theheadlines about Hillary Clinton on the cover of the National enquirer and tell mehow this was making him not want to vote for her.
How many others do you think had that same idea in the back of their heads?
78000 in three States?
Yes it’s a tabloid but for some reason people want to believe it’s headlines. Maybe because they’re salacious and people want to think that others have a worse life than they do even if they’re celebrities, especially if they’re celebrities. And to me that’s the danger of this publication. I would never advocate for it to be closed for any reason but it would be really nice if mainstream media would call it out for what it is, a bunch of lies.
Tires to the midterms I was telling everyone I was moving to Montreal. I speak French fluently and I’ve lived in warm climates all my life so cold is not such a big deal to me actually would be interesting. That being said the United States of America is my country and I love it dearly. I don’t want to leave. So when the blue Wave happen that cemented my staying in the country. But if I were thirty something I would highly consider moving to Canada because they actually have a middle-class that’s growing. Canada has the lowest handgun rate in this hemisphere. 65 million people live in Canada and I believe last year there were about 135 murders, think about how many murders happened in your town in just one here.
I was telling one of my good friends today that if this president has done anything for this country that is good he has made it important to all of us that we become civically active and vote because if not we will be in another nightmare scenario like we are right now.
We are in an upside down world where Americans wants to leave the country that everyone wants to live in and you can thank the Tangerine nightmare in the white house for that.
There are bad people or characters in every country. And sometimes these bad characters flaunt their hatred. Sam Woolf wanted walking in darkness with tiki torches and looking idiotic. Someone wanted it seems with racial slurs on license plates. Are we surprised that this is in Kansas? I’m not. I’m just very sad and embarrassed for the country. By the way this article is by a uk-based newspaper and that makes it even worse. we are the laughing stock of the world thanks to The tangerine nightmare in the White House.
