My meanderings about politics, 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.
if the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.
Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.
During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.
The environmental radical that Ryan zinke should be looking at is the one that looks back at him in the mirror. this man has made a travesty of the position of Secretary of the interior. He has systematically taking away National Park Land from the people for the use of the oil companies. He thinks he is a dictator. He actually flies a flag over the department of the interior when he’s in the office. Does he think he’s a queen of England? He wrote on a horse on his first day into his job as the Secretary of the interior, does he think he’s a cowboy oh wait. This man along with so many others in this Administration are the swamp creatures on nuclear flu fuel and should no longer be in the offices that they hold because they are not doing the will of the people.
We have one Earth and this man doesn’t give a damn all he cares about is how much money he can get from special interest. Shame on him and this Administration.
There are so many names you can call the present occupant of the White House. Liar in Chief, enabler and chief, racist in Chief, but above all he is not our leader. He sees himself as the leader of that weird 38% of his that seem to Only See what they are fed on Fox News and other conservative Outlets. I I have lived in this country with other presidents who I did not agree with but never have I felt so representative by the person in the White House than I do now.
This is truly taxation without representation especially if you live in California.
What I find so infuriating about this Administration is it’s lack of continuity. For example, I am not a great believer in how Pope Francis things the world should be. But his views are consistent. He is pro-life, but pro-life doesn’t end at conception and should follow the child through his or her education and then into adulthood. Pro-life memes being against capital punishment. So, why am I saying this now? I don’t believe and many of the things the Pope says but at least he’s consistent.
This is a White House that does not believe in science. It is looking upon our country becoming a giant sewer thanks to their deregulations. Look at Florida, my former home, with several shades of different Tides hitting both seawater and inner canals. This white house doesn’t believe in climate change. And yet when it’s convenient the White House pulls up fake science. There are no genetic markers for transgender or homosexuality or sexual orientation based tests. And now they want to put into law that if you want to be considered a different sex you must take a genetic test to prove that. What hogwash. I am so tired of listening to this white house and how they are devolving our country. I won’t say that cretin’s name anymore.
Devin Nunes is a joke and should not be in the House of Representatives. Hopefully the people of his district will see the light and vote him out of office. They are not in need of a Waterboy for Trump, they need someone to fight for them and believe in their issues. Devin Nunes does not Andrew Janz does.
what is it with Republican presidents and their choices for FEMA chief ? You remember Katrina and George Bush saying that Brownie did a great job. A great job that cost almost 2,000 people to lose their lives. Now we have Puerto Rico and Maria with eerily the same amount of people that died in 911, 2975. And by the way don’t believe the White House, they lie all the time, this was done by an independent organization that has no political affiliations.
why are they diverting funds from FEMA when we’re having terrible hurricane season to go to ice so that they can arrest more immigrants trying to save their families? This is Despicable and I am so tired of this continuous barage from this White House of Lies, they don’t know how to tell the truth anymore.
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.
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.
I was under the impression that the fake news maven, Donald Trump Junior, was off the grid. I guess he’s not off the grid enough to stop putting out false information. This one is really odd. President Trump has never had an approval rating over 50% from Gallup polls since he’s been in office. So why does Donald Trump Junior doctor an image to make it look like he’s at 50% ? These are facts and it’s hard to argue with facts although if you live in that bubble I guess not. Gallup is a right-leaning polling organization. Their numbers are always higher for republicans then from other organizations. On the other hand Quinnipiac polls or left-leaning polling organization and therefore their polls favor a more Progressive agenda. Why would Donald Trump jr. Fake information from one of its allies ? It seems that Samantha Bee calling him de Forrest Gump of White House scandals is very appropriate.
One time, and this one time only, I will agree with Rudy Giuliani about something. Michael Cohen is a liar. he is a liar that is trying his hardest to keep himself out of jail. What the good America’s mayor forgot to say was that a few weeks ago Giuliani himself said that Michael corn was a good man. A good man is not a liar or do I have my definitions mixed up?
I truly hope that the headline of this story is what happens in the end. But one thing that is never spoken about is the fact that Mike Pence, yes mr. Clean cut vice president, was in charge of the transition. And as such he must have known about Flynn, the Russians, and all of the other Shenanigans going on in those horrendous months between the election and the inauguration of the 45th president. So who will take over from Trump if Mike Pence is also implicated? And that’s why we need to have Democratic house in November. Because next in line is the speaker of the house and not the Secretary of State as so many believe. And can you imagine a president Jim Jordan? Alright enough nightmares for today.
