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.
When I was a kid I used to read Superman comic books. Once in awhile Superman would end up in Bizarro world. Everything would be backwards. Does that sound familiar to what is happening today?
Senator McCain may be remembered as the last of the bipartisans. I did not agree with him on everything but I knew that he listens and wanted to try to come to some arrangement. The republicans in Congress now have one goal, to feed that insatiable thirst for more money so they can get reelected. Freshman Congressman arriving or told by their party that they need to forget about writing bills and instead they need to worry about running for congress again. The average Congressman spends 6 hours a day calling for donations to the very rich. I may be going out on the tension here but Senator McCain makes me want to get up on top of a hill and scream that we need reform in our politics. First and foremost we need to get big money out of politics, it’s what has created the swamp and it’s turning our whole country into one.
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.
Trump supporters, and by inference the American people, were promised the best people.
Instead we got a clown car full of the most inept individuals ever to work in a White House. The true Republicans that we see now on MSNBC criticizing this White House are right. Those Republicans who stay quiet or support the machination of this White House are traitors. Some may say the traitors is a harsh word for partisanship but we are watching the dismantling of the US government and it seems that it’s being guided from the Kremlin. All the policies of this Administration has helped the Kremlin. The trade Wars, the appointments, and the continuous fear of War looming on our country is exactly what the Kremlin wants.
Russia has the 29th largest economy in the world. Just to put this into perspective California has the fifth largest. Russia’s military is basically gone other than four people. Their Navy and Airforce is no longer what we think of as the Soviet Union’s powerful Strike Force. Russia can only real Power by having influence over the president of United States in a way that is sickening.
So that’s when we see the office that vets future candidates is filled with 24 year old campaign operatives and volunteers and is fraction of the size from any other White House we understand why we see this clown car happening everyday. From the Secretary of the Interior writing into his office on a horse on the first day to his $116,000 set of 3 Doors. Or the Secretary of Hud ordering a $31,000 dining set, seemingly doesn’t know about Ikea. Or the one that hits me the most is the head of the EPA having a soundproof booth in his office, does he think he is Get Smart? Why does the EPA need to have a soundproof booth?
We did not get the best people instead we got the swamp on steroids.
