My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ 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.
Presidential candidate and mayor Pete Buttigieg said it best when he called out Mike Pence on his twisted form of Christianity. Look I’m not a Christian I was raised Jewish and right now I’m kind of nothing. I look in religion and I don’t see that it’s done very much good to the world other than cause Wars and ferment hatred. Sure there has been good from religion but it’s always with a secondary motive to bring people into the fold.
Mike Pence is the worst kind of Christian. Mike Pence thinks that people are not equal because he doesn’t want them to be. This is the Mike Pence who was in charge of the Trump transition and did not notice all the Russians running around. Come on Mike Pence knew everything was going on and never said anything because he’s an opportunist. if Christ were back on this Earth he would have Mike Pence excommunicated because Mike Pence is a bad man and he needs to be called out for that.
It’s great seeing an Evangelical college and its professors coming out against his speaking there. we all see Indiana has this homo genius kind of place where everyone hates gays. Peter Buttigieg came out as gay in the middle of an election and one by 80% of the vote.
Mike Pence is not part of the mainstream and Mike Pence is culpable for all of the inhumanity of this Administration. Locking up children in cages, separating parents from their kids, banning transgenders in the military, the lies, sleeping with pornstars, paying off those pornstars and the list goes on and on. I’m not going to say the name of thepresent occupant of the white house because he craves that.
It’s time we all shun him the first ones that should are the msnbc’s of the world because they claim to be a liberal voice and yet each time this man spews out his hatred they are right there trying to get the ratings.
As a member of the lgbtqi community I was intrigued by Peter Buttigieg’s presidential run early on. so I started following him closely. I saw posts by influential gays like David mixner on Instagram praising him. I saw snippets of interviews with him and he seemed quite credible. And then I got to watch the town hall meeting that made him look like a star. he had a grasp of the issues that the present occupant of the White House would only wish to have even with all of the presidential briefings. He has boots on the ground experience and two terms of duty in Afghanistan. He’s a Rhodes scholar, went to Harvard and as a lot of people like to say just happens to have a husband.
in 2004 I had a viewing party for the Democratic National Convention at my place. I watched with my friends President Obama make his now famous speech and afterwards I turned to my friends and said he’s going to be our next president. They left, I’m not used to my friends laughing at me when I’m making a serious remark.
Can Mayor Pete be the first yay person in the White House? I’m not sure but we need to give him a chance by putting him on the stageof the democratic debates and let him show how good he is to the rest of the country.
By the way I just got his email regarding his campaign fundraising totals. His average donation was $27.01. A penny more than Bernie Sanders.
I beg to differ with vice president Joe Biden and his assessment of Mike Pence being a decent guy. Decent people do not point out groups of individuals for hatred and discrimination. under his regime in Indiana the lgbtqi community suffered greatly. He and his wife believe in trying to cure homosexuals from their homosexuality. That is absurd. It’s just a political ploy to give himself more power. He’s not a decent man and anyone who thinks he is is not worthy to be the President of the United States.
And this is something that seems to be forgotten by the media. When Chris Christie was fired from the Trump transition Mike Pence took over. Mike Pence was there and he said nothing about all the Russians that were running around the transition. He said nothing about the hundred and fifty Russians at the inaugural. He said nothing because he knew what was going on and he is just as crooked as Trump.
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.
First and foremost I want to remember John McCain as the American hero he was. Captured in Vietnam and held for five years. He was offered a quick release by his captors because his father was an admiral but he said until his Conrad’s who had been captured were released as well he would not leave. He was tortured, beaten and brought to the edge of death more than once. I remember the day he came off the plane to a hero’s welcome. His body may have been broken but his Spirit was not.
To me John McCain has been fun enigma. His autobiography is called maverick and yet one here and against President Obama in 2008 he was anything but. He brought Sarah Palin to the four front and I believe that that has had a profound affect on our politics. He picked her the way Trump pics his nominees without knowing them. She was a long person for the job and she made a trump presidency more acceptable. So it’ll way I do blame cetera McCain for Trump.
Since Trump has been in office McCain has been a thorn in his side but an important votes like the tax plan he went along with the terrible ideals of this presidency. A tax plan that Republicans are walking back now because 1.5 trillion dollars would have easily paid for college for every single American who wants to go. And there would have been lots more left over from that. Instead we gave the rich a tax break and they are never going to spend the money. And the middle class has got a whopping $15 every two weeks in their paycheck!
In the end I wonder if Trump will be attending John McCain’s funeral. I hope not, he is a stain on our country and its institutions and should not be honored.
Each time the Trump Pence and their Republican collaborators attack President Obama they are going against the will of the people. President Obama is at an unprecedented popularity right now for a president leaving office. Our country is not the same place as it was when President Obama took office.
Remember how we couldn’t even call unemployment because the lines were so busy?
Remember when the stock market crashed?
Remember when the American Auto industry was about to go under?
Remember when our banks were all failing?
We all remember that and we remember what an impact it had on our lives. I for one experience a life-changing event because of this. So when the Republicans and their presidential ticket attack President Obama it’s falling on deaf ears. Thank you Obama and I look forward to Hillary continuing your legacy for the next 8 years.
Unfortunately in my opinion they may be right. No I’m not saying that Mike Pence who’s going to win the debate. But it’s in the best interest of the media conglomerates to make this race more even. So however great Tim Kaine is tonight they will say that this is a reset for the Trump campaign. It’s 5:12 p.m. in California so the debate starts in 48 minutes and that is my prediction.
As much as I don’t like Mike Pence’s ideas I have to say that he has not allowed himself to be Donald Trump’s Whipping Boy. This is another example of Trump hyperbole. Just to put things into perspective, President Obama, the first African American president, got his best 93% of the African-American vote. So you’re going to tell me that this orange hair orangatang is going to do better than President Obama. Sure.
In an article in the New York Times it is reported that when John Kasich was asked to be Donald Trump’s running mate he was told that he would be in charge of both domestic and foreign policy. When asked what would Trump do you they replied “Make America great again”.
So if that’s the template for how the White House under Trump would run then we have one of the most Anti gay individuals running the White House in Mike Pence. He is for dangerous and cruel so-called “Gay conversion therapy”, he wants marriage equality to be banned, he is against transgender bathroom bills, basically wants to take us back to the 1950s. If that’s what Trump thanks making America great again is I’m afraid of what he’s going to do with the rest of the issues that a president has to deal with.
Update: Less than 24 hours after introducing the new Trump/Pence logo it was withdrawn to be replaced by a more traditional logo that resembles the original Trump logo.
Logos for political campaigns are a tricky thing. Hillary’s H with the arrow got a lot of criticism online when it was unveiled. But the criticism of the Trump Pence logo is a little bit more visceral. Mike Pence, has been cited as a man with conviction. The minute he became Donald Trump vice president those convictions fell by the wayside. So the gift that’s been going around showing Trump’ T pleasuring itself on the P for Pence might have it exactly correct. Let us not forget that the Republican Party platform for 2016 has a stipulation that porn should be outlawed. I believe Indiana was one of the states that PornHub blocked because of their stance on LGBT rights to the dismay and unhappiness of the populace. Mike Pence has Draconian Family Values. He believes in a form of Sharia law for Christians and everyone else for that matter. They are both unfit for the White House.
