It is at this time of year when people actually want to be kind to each other.
Let’s try to carry this into the New Year.
Our blow hard President has decided to make enemies of anyone who doesn’t do his bidding. Or in the Case of GM, his make believe bidding.
This poor little man who no one has ever said no to thinks the world sees him as a strong leader. They don’t. He lies too much for anyone to take him seriously. He says stupid things all of the time. He either heard them on Fox and Friends/Fox News or just plain made them up. Example: Finland rakes it’s forest and so they have no forest fires.
He boasted that he saved jobs when he became President. I believed that was with Ford and they ended up still sending jobs to Mexico. Now he’s wants to attack GM because they are laying off 15,000 employees. Apparently, as a self proclaimed businessman, he ignores parts of his business that aren’t working out. Now that I think of it, that’s probably why he’s had declare Bankruptcy so much, lol. His list of perceived enemies grows everyday. Yesterday it was Mexico, today it’s GM and possible China again.
Someone should tell Cadet Bonespurs he really doesn’t know anything about negotiating.
The angry mob isn’t really Democrats. It’s the Trumpkins Party. It’s not even Republicans….it’s the angry white mob that are fueled by a man with no wits, no class, no plans for the future, no substance.
Cadet Bone Spurs keeps yelling MAGA. Well, you big Orange Muffin, you’ve been President for almost 2 years…according to you, shouldn’t it already be great again?
VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
Protect your daughters from sanctioned attacks! Remember, this is a government that has caged foreign nationals in For-Profit prisons.
VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
This Brett Kavanaugh thing is ludicrous in that the Republican male dominate Judiciary Committee has decided to attack rather than do what is best for America…again. Yesterday, Donald Trump compared himself to Judge Kavanaugh in the sense that he too was a victim of a smear campaign by women. Mr. Trump forgets that he paid these women to stay silent about his infidelity. If he didn’t do it he wouldn’t need to pay them off. In the end, his Evangelical Base listened to the words of Satan and Fox News and forgave Mr. Trump for breaking one of God’s commandments (there are only 10).
The Republican led Judiciary Committee thought they could just do a bums rush on Judge Kavenaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. No real hearing, no tough questions, just a pat on the back ole boy and you are in for the next 40 or so years.
Mr. Grassley and his cronies have decided to use a Woman prosecutor to question Dr. Ford so they don’t get their hands dirty. They really do not see the importance of these hearings and why this particular event came to be. Judge Kavanaugh’s disrespect of women is an important factor because he will possibly rule on Roe v Wade and other women’s cases. Since there was no serious hearing on his opinions of the laws the Democrats forced a discussion. Was it right? Who knows but what is important is that Judge Kavanaugh is willing to lie about his past to become a Supreme Court Judge. He wasn’t a drunken fool in High School or College yet his own yearbook says this is patently lying. His friend’s book about his debauchery in High School corroborates the things that happened. Yet, Judge Kavanaugh went on Fox News to plead his case with the Base (White Guys feeling disenfranchised) he made it sound like everyone else was partying.
It’s rather repulsive that Collins and Murkowski, both women and republican constantly vote the party and not for their constituency or in this case the women of our country.
In the end, Judge Kavanaugh was an over indulged teenager with wealthy parent who sent him to an expensive Prep School. A Prep School knows for it’s debauchery that was only curtailed after a Kennedy died of a drug overdose. He was an entitled white male in the 80’s. That behavior of entitlement doesn’t dissipate because he grew up. His views as a Judiciary are scary, especially for women. His daughters now can read all about how he and his friends victimized a girl called Renate in their yearbook.
Kavanaugh isn’t the only candidate for this position. The lack of information allowed by the Republican Committee is circumspect. What are they hiding? Why can’t you dump Kavanaugh for a better Supreme Court Nominee?
It’s time for a Woman President! It’s time for more women to standup and take narrative away from the abuser. It’s time for Grassley, Hatch and the other immoral misogynists of Congress to take heed that women have an enough of their Crap!
This is my opinion, as a woman and a republican.
This season has been a stinker. Once the alpha males were voted off by the coalition of Dom and Wendell the game became “All Hail Dom and Wendell”. Puppy still loves Donathan who is the only one actually trying to stay in it and not just wanting to be Dom and Wendell’s third. The only saving grace is Dom and Wendell need to make moves against each other or it just become…the jury thinks one or the other was better. That’s not about playing the game, it’s a popularity contest at that point.
So far this season hasn’t had anything I would consider Epic worthy moves :(**
Today we celebrate the Life of Maya Angelou and the Death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. These two beautiful human beings left their words for which we can live and learn.
They are more poignant now under the wave of Nationalism taking hold of our Country. The wave has spread great fear among many in our Country. We will Rise!
Still I Rise by Dr. Maya Angelou
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
Dr. King…Your dream is still alive in many!
I think it is about time that adults be shamed for allowing the slaughters of our children to continue. Whether it is a mass slaughter or one child at a time killed by random crime the slaughter needs to end!
I’ve had multiple debates with men recently who freak out about the perceived threat to the Second Amendment. This isn’t about that at all. It’s about common sense gun ownership. It’s about average citizens who can own and use military grade weapons. Common sense, as my mother would say, isn’t so common!
The NRA has decided the best way to espouse their cause is to malign the Students who have just grown weary of the killings. Weary of the Politicians who have taken millions for the NRA to promote their agenda that American’s must have their guns. All guns are okay. They aren’t. AR-15, M-14, AK-47 rifles are military equipment. But the NRA is yelling about 2nd Amendment rights. It’s not about owning guns, it’s about comprehensive common sense ownership. Longer hold periods, special licenses that take time to process, No military grade weapons and eliminating Gun Shows where you can buy a weapon in minutes. These suggestions do not hinder gun ownership they make for safe gun ownership.
November is coming and some of these children will vote. Beware politicians who defend the NRA…they are coming for you.
One last comment was as Americans should call these men/boys who have slaughtered our children, our families, our loved ones what they are…TERRORISTS!!! Home grown and yet still they are TERRORISTS!!!
