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.
First let’s get some things out of the way. The dictionary definition of communism is:
a system in which goods are owned incommonand are available to all as needed
How is paying someone a living wage in anyway communism? The Republicans need to start doing some deep soul-searching because their corporate overlords are now going to threaten their political survival. The middle class is disappearing and AOC is only saying that she’s going to pay her staffers $52,000 a year. And the Republicans think this is outrageous?
The Republican brand is becoming one of corporate cronyism and leaning towards fascism. How is that the party of Lincoln?
Me thinks not all is peachy on the Republican side of the Senate.
Chuck grassley is not one of my favorite people. Chuck Grassley understands what McConnell has just set off. This is much worse than what Chuck Schumer did when he change the rules in the senate for confirmations to a majority as opposed to a 60-vote needed. Chuck Grassley understands that there’s going to be a democratic presidents maybe in the near future. Chuck Grassley understands that this is a president that is going to be disastrous for the Republican Party. sure the Republicans cheat but when they do they open the door for others to do the same.
I look forward to a democratic Congress and President. But if there’s a Democratic president she can declare National emergencies for things that are actually National emergencies. Something like climate change or gun control.
This false emergency is a smoke screen to hide behind for the Trump Administration and all of the problems that is besieging them.
Look, anyone who’s been here before knows I’m a Democrat and proud of it. But there are so so few Republicans that I despised more then Dana rohrabacher. His love of everything Russia and his corruption goes unchallenged by this GOP and by this president.
Well in January say goodbye representative Rohrabacher to your house seat and perhaps you may be able to get a job in Putin’s Russia.
This has been a given since the election. And yet it’s taken all of this time for the leaders of our nation to accept the truth that Russia wanted Trump as the President of the United States and they did everything in their power to make that happen. To say otherwise is to be unamerican and unfortunately there are a lot of those unamericans around the Republican Party.
So when Trump in that Infamous interview with Lester Holt whereTrump says you know that thing about how firing Comey would look bad about that Russia thing, yes it looks really bad
You have to love Republicans, they are always trying to figure out how to stab another Republican in the back.
If Paul Ryan were to resign the odds are against the Republicans being able to have another Speaker of the House. Right now it certainly looks like it’s going to be a democratic house and maybe even a Democratic Senate if the trends in voting continue.
The two candidates who are considering a run for the speakership are both gun Advocates and are to the Right of where the majority of American people are.
You know Scott Pruitt is done, and I don’t mean medium rare. I mean chared to the Bone done, when he gets a republican member of Congress to go against Trump. He spent Millions on his personal security. Went to Morocco of all places to sell natural gas. Why does the EPA administrator need to go to Morocco to sell natural gas? Is that in the EPA administrator job duties? He built a soundproof booth because he thinks he’s Get Smart. The Washington Post now is saying that three White House officials have confirmed that Pruitt lied on Fox News to Ed Henry when he said he knew nothing about the ridiculous pay raises he gave to his friends from Oklahoma. In fact he’s the one who approved them. He’s turned the EPA into the environmental pollution Administration and I just plain don’t like him.
I feel like he may be let go over the weekend when less people are watching the news although the president may be too occupied with watching the Masters on Golf Channel like he was doing wow on a flight on Air Force One. Can you imagine if President Obama was caught watching the Golf Channel on Air Force One? It would be full confession investigations right now. Fox News would be blowing up. We did watch his cabre of people chowing down on our food and it was disgusting, especially Steven Miller.
Aren’t we all tired of winning, this winning has to stop. Now everything we buy from China is going to go up in price a nice tax increase for the poor and the middle class. Winning that’s all we do is win. I can’t wait till this winning is over.
Trump said he was ending catch-and-release, I didn’t know it was going to be in his cabinet.
Did you ever think why they call it a trade War? One side protects the other side counter-attacks and so on and so on and so on until it becomes a real war. What if China start selling off the trillions of US Treasury Bills they have? Some would say that would not be in their best interest, but in a trade War…
If he’s not directed by Putin then Trump is following along perfectly in the plan that Putin has for us. Dismantle our Partnerships, dismantle NATO, and make our allies mistrust us. So far Trump is doing exactly that.
And what happened to Republicans being all for free trade? It’s amazing how quiet GOP leadership has been, or can we still call it leadership?
Surprise, surprise, $5 or $15 a paycheck is not making a big splash with voters. I bet you the millions that the billionaires are getting is making a huge splash. Senator Kennedy from Louisiana, a republican, said that the latest omnibus budget was Congress peeing down the leg of the voters. I will go one step further the only thing that’s going to trickle down from this tax cut to the average individual will be urine.
The Saint of the Republican Party, Ronald Reagan, coined the term trickle down economics. It did not work then it does not work now it will not work. Rich people keep every penny they get a tax cut they don’t spend it. They may buy a new house but it won’t make a blip in the economy. Poor and middle class individuals basically spent almost everything they get in their paycheck and when they get money it’s spent and it makes the economy grow. It’s why the Democrats always give the Republicans a great economy to ruin.
