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 second night of the democratic debates was interesting. Once again Chuck Todd proved that he is not moderator material. But to be honest a lot of the candidates didn’t know how to answer questions very well. But the final minutes were the strangest to be honest. When asked what their first action would be as the new president of the United States each was given the task of answering in a few words. None of them did. Some were very good like Eric Swalwell, some bizarre like Marianne Williamson and then some that absolutely made no sense like Joe Biden. The question was what he would do as his first action as president and he said that he would defeat Donald Trump. aren’t you already president and haven’t you already defeated Donald Trump on January 21st 2021?
Winners and losers. It’s simple Bernie Sanders was a loser and Joe Biden was massacred by Kamala Harris. The rest threaded water and I’m sure as the field narrows we will look back on tonight kind of like when the Republicans couldn’t get on stage in the right order in one of their debates.
I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!
The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.
the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.
And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.
The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.
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:
Even for the most ardent Trump supporter the reality is sinking in. He is not they are friends his only friends are Donald j Trump and his immediate family.
Support for the wall is plummeting even amongst his base. Only 45% of white man without a college degree now favor it, a precipitous drop from just a year ago.
The steady drip drip drip of incriminating use about this President is finally going to start taking effect. I saw this during Watergate. It took forever for Republicans to start understanding that they had a lemon in Nixon and now it’s going to be the same with fat Nixon.
I must be one of those violent Democrats because I did not watch anything to do with Kavanaugh’s Vote or swearing-in. Hand the hypocrisy of having a second swearing-in just baffles me. But then everything that this White House does baffles me.
I rarely ask that you go to the link that I post regarding the stories. I do urge you to go and watch the video for yourself. It’s rather disturbing.
