Trump’s America Isn’t So Great

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.

The Culture of Boys Will Be Boys

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.

The Words of Maya Angelou

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
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise

Dr. King…Your dream is still alive in many!

The Children Take Charge

When the adults in charge in America would rather take money from Lobby Groups (after chanting Drain the Swamp) instead of saving American Lives the children called them on their BS.  Today in Washington, DC and around the country the Children had a non-violent protest.  NO MORE MURDERS from Gun Violence.  The Sandy Hook slaughter showed that the mostly WHITE males in America have absolutely no apathy for the lose children’s lives but great regard for their right to own military grade weapons.  The slaughter at Pulse Nightclub in Florida showed that males in America had no apathy for mass murdered victims because it was a LGBT club.  In Las Vegas the slaughter of people enjoying music lead to even less apathy.  The bodies are piling up Mr. Trump, Mr. McConnell and Mr. Ryan.  You are whores for Wayne LaPierre (President of NRA).

Mr. Trump’s grand plan while listening to his inner idiocy and being manipulated by Wayne LaPeirre and his band of psychopaths decided that “well-trained gun carrying teachers” is the answer.  Until yesterday,  A Teacher in California who is a reserve police officer was showing gun safety to his class.  He discharged his weapon into the ceiling of the classroom injuring 3 students (from ceiling debris and 1 Student had bullet fragments in his neck).  So there goes that theory Mr. President.  We are led by a moron!

To mark a month of do-nothingness by our Congress and President the children orchestrated a nationwide protest.  They gave a 17 minute quiet tribute/protest for the Parkland Florida victims.  Across the country school leadership issued threats against the students who participated.  Sanctions, and suspensions will stop these children.  NO, it didn’t.  It brought the silence to the White House.  In some cases congress persons from gun-loving state bullied, made rude and malicious comments about the students who survived the Parkland Shooting.  They were belittled for being “children”.  “Children should be seen and not heard” was a remark I saw many times in many interviews with the out of touch adults.  How stupid these are these people?  When you survive a man slaughtering your friends and teachers with a Military Grade Weapon then you can speak on this issue.  Until then…SHUT UP!!!!  The “children” are almost or able to vote in the next election.  Remember that 18 is the voting age.  I hope they overwhelm the ignorance and vote all of those bullies out!

People are not listening to the lies, the fascism, the white supremacy, the anti-LGBT agenda or the anti-Woman agenda.  Making America Great Again has been in full gear for over a year.  I don’t see America as great.  It’s become ugly and violent.  The Children have had it with the Liar-In-Chief.  They will take back decency through protests and action.  The Politicians of Hate will not be able to hide from the Children.  Telling them they don’t matter only invigorates their courage to the cause!

The slaughter of our children needs to end.  I hope we see more young people and women running for office in 2018.  It’s time the rich old white fools be sent out to pasture.  It’s time for America to save itself from hate and violence!

Listen To The Children, They Have Something To Say

Our male dominated Congress and President want to hold tight to their phallic symbols like Assault weapons.  The Children are raising their voices because those people in Congress and the President do not understand common sense.  Congress and other like minded troglodytes share their thoughts with us.  They go like this…”Guns don’t Kill People, People Kill People”.  Let’s break this down further.  It’s people with Guns that kill people.  To act as though the gun is incapable of such devastation just makes sense.  That is what is described as semantics.  Then they all run around saying ‘you’ll only get my guns from my dead body’.  Nice visual crazies.

The Children are tired of dying at the hands of crazed individuals.  They are tired of the lip service paid by our Congress and President who take millions and millions of dollars to do the bidding of the gun lobbys.  This isn’t new in America where children stand up for other people in the face of injustice.  The Freedom Riders did that in the South in the 60’s because it was time do the right thing even if others are hanging on to antiquated ideals that are harmful to America.

In Florida, they decided not to take up any gun control legislation but found their focus in Porn.  Apparently in Florida, porn is a health risk.  Really because I think the 17 murder students and teachers would whole hardily disagree  and say Gun’s are the health risk!

In a Texas school district, School Children who opt to protest will be disciplined.

“A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally,” Rhodes wrote. “A disruption of the school will not be tolerated.”

I’m pretty sure protesting the murder of school children nationwide is educationally, emotionally and morally important.  I’m assuming those in the administration are mostly male, gun owning, morally bankrupt people.

The children will be heard.  Some of these children will be running for office in the next several years.  Those gun lobby loving corrupt anti-American and anti-family values will have to face the fact that their jobs are definitely on the line.

My question for all these people who think this is a second amendment issue is this…”Why do you need an AR-15 or AK-47 assault rifle?  If it’s for protection I would suggest several classes of gun safety and target shooting because if it takes more than one or two bullets to protect yourself you really suck at it and shouldn’t own a weapon of any kind.

Happy President’s Day – A Diatribe

UPDATED:  How a day changes things.

Yesterday this happened:

“James Buchanan, who was at the helm as the United States careened into civil war, was dislodged from his position as our nation’s worst president by our current president, Trump.” I guess I was wrong.

I remember when Trump was running for President.  Mostly I remember saying if he got elected he would have to really do a lot to be a worse President than James Buchanan.  Well, he’s been President for over a year and well James Buchanan is looking pretty dang good.

Under Mr. Trump and his band of misfit toys (cabinet members/staff/Lacking of Proper Security Clearances) he’s taken America back to the 1940/50’s when Racism was outwardly tolerated.  A time when women had few rights when married (especially in the south).  When people were murdered (lynched) and it was deemed socially okay.  Churches/Synagogues burning (African-American/Jewish) were sanctioned and white men in power thought themselves untouchable.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence would have us all believe those were the good old’ days.  This is how I see America right now.  Our President reaps personal financial windfalls from his position.  Trump harped on his predecessor playing Golf and he would have not time as President to do the same.  Yet, he’s played more golf than any previous President in the same time period or over a tenure in office.  Not only that, he plays golf at his own establishments that cost the American Tax Payers approximately $100 million for 1 year of golf.

Mr. Pence wraps himself in his form of Christianity.  Evangelicals have given Mr. Trump a sanctioned pass.  Even though he is a known philanderer, liar, cheat and scoundrel he invokes Jesus and God with his “God Bless America” and they give him a pass.  I’m fairly certain no matter what form of Christianity you follow…that’s not a real thing.  Mr. Pence hates women in power.  He has told everyone how he can’t be in the presence of women when his wife isn’t around.  He’s afraid of being tempted I guess.  This is revealing in his lack of faith in Jesus that he will make the right choices.  It also shows his lack of self-control in all other matters in his life.  Is this really a person who should be Vice-President or even President?

The Republican Party is ridiculous any more.  The days of the calls for fiscal responsibility are gone.  They have been replaced with the days of Class Warfare.  The age where poor people are poor because they want to be and not because the deck is stacked against them.  The days where the wealthy are rewarded for their lack of paying any tax let alone their fair share.  We are back to the days of medical bankruptcy because Trump’s grand plan of destroying anything Obamaish is all that matters to him.  Instead of fixing and improving Obamacare we now live in the world of Trumpcare where only the wealthy can afford medical treatment.  Where pharmaceutical companies hold our health hostage because we can’t afford the medicines we need to be healthy.  Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell would rather all of the poor folks just die off so it makes America Greater for people like them.

The Republican Party of today would also have you believe that all of the millions and millions of dollars taken from Gun Lobbies like the NRA isn’t blood money.  Thoughts and Prayers for all of the people killed by AR-15 Assault Rifles and other various guns.  It’s not the guns…it’s the people.  No…it’s the people who should never have military grade assault weapons.  That’s not even a Second Amendment issue.  It’s a common sense issue.  Ordinary citizens will never need an AR-15.  It’s a death weapon and nothing more.

Our Country is in the throes of being not relevant on the world’s stage.  Our President watches more TV than I do and tweets as though he is a Junior High Schooler.  He tries to bully everyone who disagrees with him.  He has no respect for anyone about anything that does not mirror his own opinion.  That opinion tends to be how great he is and if you don’t say he’s great then you suck.

Will Trump go down as the worst President in the history of the United States of America?  That is still to be determined.  It still would take a lot to be worse than James Buchanan who seemed to be okay with Civil War.  There are so many variables and so much time left in Trump’s first (or only) term as President.  Until then we deal with the fact that Trump plays a lot of golf, doesn’t start his work day until 11 am and works only until about 4 PM.  He watches endless Fox News which he deems as the only not “fake news” affiliate.  The world is a scarier place under Mr. Trump and his Republican band of misfits.

Happy President’s Day…I guess.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we celebrate the birth and works of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  This year it is more important than ever to re-educate ourselves by reading about the works of Dr. King.

Dr. King stood for justice in the face of injustice.  His message is so important because the President of the US is many things from bully to self aggrandize simpleton.  He is also a racist.  He denies being a racist and says “No, I’m not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed”.  This would have been almost believable if he hadn’t described those who took part in the Charlottesville white supremacy march, that killed one person, “some very fine people”.

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Republican party led by their halfwit President Trump will be the show today.  Look at us…we love minorities and want to help them all.  Unless of course they are of color or aren’t Christian.  I find this weird because Jesus was of color, poor and a foreigner.  He was probably going to come back like he promised and realized ICE would throw him in detention for being all of those things.

Dr. King believed love and peace were the answer to anger and hate.  He and so many others are also remember today.  People like  Medger Evers, Rosa Parks, and Sojourner Truth.  Medger Evers once said “You can kill a man, but not an idea”.  The idea that we are all created equal has been very hard for whites in America, and particularly in the south, to grasp.  They blame blacks for being the largest group in incarceration.  Interestingly enough they never ask the right question or posit the correct theories.  If more blacks are poor than any other group in America wouldn’t that lead them to be more desperate?

White Supremacy is a ridiculous ideology.  It is the ideology of the weak-minded and uneducated.  Fanatics are stupid whether they are race or religious…they are weak people.  Dr. King fought for justice for minorities of all kinds whether race, religion or gender.  He understood the heart of Jesus and his teachings.  He knew that hate is not productive and is only destructive.  He knew more than President Trump and his band of “white males only” and he died before he could reach the zenith of his work.  Dr. King left a legacy that can’t be tarnished or demoralized.  They can try but in the end….Love will always win and hate and arrogance will destroy themselves because this has always been the case.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today I will celebrate Dr. King’s birth and the birth of all of those souls that fought against injustice and continue the fight for the rights of all people.
