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.
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!
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!
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.
