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.
The Republicans are all up in arms about the freshman members of Congress. sure their views are different but of course they’re also younger and I have had a different life experience than somebody who’s been in Congress for the last 50 years.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg is talking long-term issues. Weighing these issues on how they are going to mature in the future. We seem to make our decisions based on a one-year budget. The best our government can do is a two-year farm Bill. It’s time we think a little bit further down the line then one or two years. China thinks in decades and has a plan mapped out for its economy and its people. Look I’m not talking about the dogmatic five-year plans of the Soviet Union.I’m talking about actual planning on how and why we want our economy to grow. Infrastructure should be our number one goal and this country. spending money on infrastructure does not balloon the debt. Spending money on infrastructure actually lowers the debt. The Republicans know that but they want us to be unhappy with the government so not fixing infrastructure is the best way of doing that.
Mayor Peter Buttigieg has some fresh ideas and he deserves to be on the stage when we have the debates in June.
The more I hear him speak the more I like him. I have made itclear on this blog that I find him an appealing candidate. Look he’s got the chops. Served two tours of duty in Afghanistan, a Rhodes scholar which is a difficult thing to do and was one of Bill Clinton’s achievements, and he’s gay and married to a husband. I’m gay makes me proud to have someone who’s actually being talked about running for president. My friend Fred Kargar ran for president in 2016. He did not get as noticed as mayor Pete is right now.
I’ve donated to this campaign but I’ve also donated to comella Harris his campaign. I think that would make a great ticket. Is America ready for a gay president? was America ready for a black one? And yet he was re-elected twice. I don’t think that’s the issue. He’s young but he runs a city that has a 385 million dollar budget and 1000 employees. How many senators have had that experience over the last 8 years? As a matter of fact does the person that’s currently residing in the White House have this kind of experience, no, and it shows.
Republicans should love him, they are the ones who have been packing the courts for the last 40 years with their activist judges. remember how they used to talk about Democratic activist judges and how they no longer say that word anymore because they’re the ones doing it?
I wish Mayor Pete all of the best luck on his runand look forward to seeing him on the debate stage. If you get a chance go to his sight and donate some money. His site is:
