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.
Having picked a completely partisan attorney General has been the biggest mistake that the present occupant of the White House has made. Sure he and his sycophants are doing victory dances all over social media and Fox News. The problem is we don’t know what is in the Mueller report. How can four pages of obviously redacted for content stand in the place of a 400-page report? Decant. There are sentences that were not even complete quotes from the report. And the report clearly state that it does not exonerate Trump from obstruction of justice charges. This report is going to become public and what it does this sugar high that the Republican party is on right now is going to taste very very bitter.
Never has in modern times a president hoped for the demise of a Supreme Court Justice. Can you imagine if President Obama had even suggested that he had a replacement for the chief justice? The Republican heads in Washington would have exploded in unison. They are packing the courts, the federal courts with what they said was their biggest problem with quartz, activist judges. Ruth bader Ginsburg is going nowhere and that this man has the audacity to say he’s already picked her replacement is beyond the pale. And judge Barrett has proven herself to be an anti-abortion zealot someone who will do everything in her power to overturn a woman’s right to control her own body. That’s going to sit well with 51% of the population, don’t you think?
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?
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:
He cavorted with tyrants, oligarchs and dictators. That’s the kind of man Paul manafort, with a small m is. So it’s not surprising that the chairman of the Trump election Committee in 2016 would lie after he made a plea deal. Have you ever heard of a den of thieves, that’s what’s Trump, his White House staff and everyone associated with his campaign are, a den of thieves.
Liars are liars and they won’t stopeven if it means they’re going to spend the rest of their lives in jail
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’ve been watching the show on Netflix from the BBC Called Death in Paradise, one I highly recommend, and it said something very wise and that is that paradise is where you find it. I was lucky enough to find Paradise in Los Angeles almost 18 years ago. and living in California is a very special experience. Sure we have great weather, and movie stars and all of that but it’s the people and it’s government that they choose that makes it Paradise for me.
While the Tangerine nightmare in the White House systematically tries to dismantle everything good that President Obama did there is one Bastion in the United States that is stepping up to the plate and making sure that the environment, at least in our part of the world is not destroyed by him. You can tell by the people he chooses to run the EPA that the Tangerine nightmare on how he believes that he is not the steward of our children’s future. By the way not the name I made up, Bill Maher did that, and I won’t be using his name very often on my blog anymore, so the current occupant of the White House is the Tangerine Nightmare on this blog. The first and very corrupt Scott Pruitt sued the EPA as the Attorney General of Oklahoma and had vowed to destroy it. Well while we all cheered at his demise from the administration quietly the Tangerine nightmare put in an oil and coal company lobbyist in his place. Sure he is being more respectful of the people’s money but not of our future. So I am so proud that the state of California is currently being run by Jerry Brown. And Jerry Brown our governor has decided that we are going to move on with climate change study and not let the federal government hold us back. At almost 65 years old I never thought I would be saying that the federal government would be holding back on Environmental Protections and here we are. It’s why I support and holy believe that Gavin Newsom will be our next governor so that he can carry on Governor Jerry Brown’s Legacy.
While I was researching this post on bikers for Trump, I found a lot of references to bikers for Trump being Vigilantes at Trump rallies. This is very disturbing.
That being said, the hypocrisy of it all. These are people that claim they want make America great again but are not willing to pay wages, living wages to American workers. Yes, they are perfect has Trump supporters. Neider the president nor his daughter made any of their clothes in America. They’ve never answered to that because it would be very difficult to explain.
So from now on I will call Bikers For Trump Vigilantes for Trump.
CEOs of Corporations as large as AT&T rarely and so publicly admit to doing wrong. This is textbook on how not to run your lobbying of a new Administration. Hiring Donald Trump’s self-proclaimed fixer had to be one of the stupidest things a company like AT&T could do.
When the history of how the Trump Administration fell, and it will be written, this will be one of the cornerstones that was pulled out from underneath this crumbling edifice.
I have always wondered how much of a real conversation a wife or husband has with their spouse about running for president. The ego it takes for someone to believe that they are smart and wise enough to become the leader of the Free World seems like a person hard to have a rational discussion with. I’m not saying Presidents are bad people, on the contrary. I just believe that many of the spouses have been dragged into their position because of the love they have for their mate. Even high-profile women like Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy or uncomfortable in the guise of first lady.
Melania Trump has a heavier burden to carry than most. Her husband is unpopular and the discrepancy in the way they look together makes their marriage scene unusual. But it’s not our place to decide whether or not a couple should be together, that is their decision and a very personal one at that.
So as much as I cannot stand her husband, I respect Melania Trump. She has said provide much for her adopted country.
When 45 came swooping down to California on his only visits as president he had one main goal, raise money. Sure he went and looked at swatches of what the wall is never going to look like. Let’s face it if there were going to be a wall built it would have been funded by now.
As the state of California is being strangled out of funds by the federal government in an operation that the GOP calls ABC, or anybody but California. So if Trump wants 2 give us some National Guards to do work paid for by the federal government then sure.
And yes there is a revolution going on in California. We are leading the nation on how to coexist with each other. Sure there are some isolated incidents that make National media coverage but in the whole this state runs very well and people are happy.
