My World

preample-2

People say that I sometimes live  in my own little world and they may be right. Here is my world—–

In my world children’s education comes first and foremost. We don’t voucherize it and turn it over to private corporations that are only concerned with profit.

In my world we don’t attack people for promoting proper nutrition in school, we thank them for it.

In my world we don’t round up immigrants, hold them in camps until we can deport them. (Hitler rounded up jews, put them in ghettos until he took them to the concentration camps.)

In my world we don’t assume that because members of one religion commit an act of terror all members of that religion are terrorist. (If we are going to do that we need to assume that all Christians are terrorist because Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City bombing) was a Christian.

In my world a foreign government would never interfere with our elections. (If you think that didn’t happen you are in denial. The FBI has confirmed it.)

In my world voting would be as easy as 1-2-3. There would be no voter suppression.

In my world one political party would never shut down the government in an effort to keep 30 million people from getting affordable health care.

In my world 47 senators from that same political party would never send a message to another country attempting to undermine the president’s negotiation for a nuclear treaty. This is sedition and punishable with prison time.

In my world we don’t send our young men and women to fight wars for the benefit of corporate America. Let them fight their own wars.

In my world those with the most help those with the least. I’m not talking about giving to charity so they can get the write-off. I’m talking about paying their fair share and paying fair wages.

In my world elected officials don’t run from their constituents, they meet them and talk to them. I’m referencing the 200 Republicans who are finding out that Obamacare (ACA) is more popular than they led people to believe.

In my world  we take care of our veterans and our elderly and the sick.That includes leaving veterans benefits, Medicare, social security and ACA alone.

In my world everyone has equal opportunities no matter their ethnicity, skin color, sex  or sexual orientation.

In my world we strive to continually move forward with new innovations and improve the quality of life.

I am a progressive Democrat and this is what I fight for.

The Hitler Trump Comparison

What do the Bowling Green Massacre and the Atlanta Terror attack have in common? What does Trump’s statement that there are terrorist attacks that the media doesn’t cover have to do with them? They never happened. Trump made the statement so Conway and Spicer fabricated two terror attacks to instill fear in the people. It is in Trump’s playbook and it was also in Hitlers, Noriega’s, Gahdafy’s, Hussein’s and every other dictator around the world.

There was a post on facebook not to long ago that had a picture of dead bodies laying in a common grave, one of the Holocaust pictures. The person that posted it said that this is what Hitler did and they objected to Trump being compared to Hitler. While I respect other peoples opinion, I believe this person is missing the point. I don’t believe that something like the holocaust would ever happen here, I don’t believe that our generals would allow it. (Of course I didn’t believe we would ever see a person like Trump get into the Whitehouse either.

One of the most effective weapons of any dictator is to create an atmosphere of fear in the people. First Trump says the media isn’t covering many terrorist attacks and then they invent attacks to prove their point. I know it’s a lie and you know it’s a lie but many will believe it. Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s minister of enlightenment and propaganda;

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

So, make a statement then create the lie to support the statement, this is the dictator way.

Trumps ban on immigration of Muslims is not much different than Hitlers ban on Jewish immigration. Jewish Immigration.

A dictator has to give the people someone to hate in order to distract them from what he is really doing. Hitler convinced people to hate Jews, In America Trump and the Republicans have been convincing many people to hate Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and others. In actuality, Republicans have been preparing for this for a very long time, Trump was just the right chump for the job.

In 1925 Hitler wrote a book called “Mein Kampf, People should read it before casting aside the comparison between Trump and Hitler. Trumps former wife, Ivanka, has told “Vanity Fair” magazine that Trump kept a copy of “My New Order,” a collection of Hitlers speeches by his bedside and from time to time would read from it.

So, comparisons to Hitler, there are many, the holocaust isn’t one of them.

9 Points About Trump

  1. Trump labels any news that prints something he doesn’t like as fake news. I hold the media at least partly responsible for Trump being in office, both by what they printed and by what they didn’t print. They didn’t tell the American people who the real Donald Trump is and they focused on Hillary’s emails, which had been debunked many times over.
  2. Trump has been in office one month and he has taken three vacations to Mar-a-largo Florida and gone golfing five times at a cost of more than 11 million dollars. This is more than President Obama spent on vacations in the a year and it doesn’t include the money tax payers are paying for his kids to fly around the world taking care of his business interests.
  3. Trumps wife stays at Trump Tower in New York. This will cost taxpayers millions. It is estimated to be around 3 million just for protection around Trump Tower as the secret service may rent two floors. In addition, New York wants the feds to reimburse them for money they have to spend for protection detail.
  4. I saw an article, not sure where I saw it, that said, “Rejuvenated, Trump returns to governing.” Trump has not done any governing yet. Not one bill has crossed his desk yet. All he has done is sign several unconstitutional executive orders. (To be clear, executive orders in themselves are not unconstitutional, its the content of those orders.)
  5. How ironic is it that Trumps travel ban on Muslims (finally dropped after several court losses) exempted all the Muslim countries where Trump has business interests, including Saudi Arabia. [The 9/11 attackers were Saudi.]
  6. All politicians lie to a certain point, that’s just the way they are but Trump lies every time he opens his mouth. Doesn’t it seem strange that Trump mentioned that there are terror attacks all over the world that the media doesn’t cover and then Kellyanne Conway fabricates the Bowling Green Massacre, Spicer invents a terrorist attack in Atlanta and now Trump invents one in Sweden?
  7. An Emolument is The profit arising from office, employment, or labor; that which is received as a compensation for services, or which is annexed to the possession of office as salary, fees, and perquisites. Any perquisite, advantage, profit, or gain arising from the possession of an office. It is embedded in the constitution.This clause was meant to keep people from profiting off the office of president. Trump has business dealings in several countries. Violation of this clause is an impeachable offense.
  8. It has been proven that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to win the presidency for Trump. If that doesn’t bother you maybe somebody should piss in your corn flakes to get your attention.
  9. A non-critical thinker tends to take people at their word and is loath to do research to find out the truth. A critical thinker questions everything and does research to find the truth. Most Trump supporters are non-critical thinkers who follow like sheep.

Don The Con

                                                                  Trump on Acid

Who is this man? The one who calls himself “The Donald?” The one who has perpetrated the ultimate con? Is he Hitler incarnate? I don’t think so. Somehow I don’t see the Holocaust coming to America, although until now I couldn’t ever imagine a person like Trump could ever be elected president. There are many similarities between Hitler and Trump though.

Notice the featured picture on this article? I’ve captioned it, “Trumps Brain on Acid,” but that’s actually just a joke, I don’t really know what he’s on but it must be some good s**t.
 How will Trump be remembered in history, that remains to be seen. At present it looks like he will be remembered as the Twitter president. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t attack somebody on twitter.
 There are so many things though. He says he wants to re-negotiate NAFTA and then threatens to send troops into Mexico, he threatened war with Iran because they launched a rocket, he hung up on the prime minister of Australia and some in China are talking war with the U.S. So, which war do you want to send our kids to, The one with Mexico, Iran or WWIII with China. Of course there is always the option of going over and pooping on Australia’s doorstep.
Nobody will negotiate with him because he doesn’t negotiate. He bullies and threatens and if they don’t do exactly what he wants he hangs up on them or threatens war.
 He sits in his office and signs executive orders one after another without regard for their legality or constitutionality and when a judge tells him it’s not legal he goes to twitter and refers to him as “that so called judge, “ as if that really hurts a judge doing his job. I should point out that after 20 days of signing executive orders his arm is so tired that he has to take a vacation.
And what has this lazy, good for nothing congress done? Absolutely nothing.The House has passed a couple bills, one to make right to work laws federal, one to allow mentally ill people to own guns and a couple of others, but none have yet reached Trump’s desk for signing. The senate passed a bill decimating Obamacare but it has gone nowhere in the house as of yet.
 Well that ends my first segment of “Don the Con.” Stay tuned, much more to come.

We Are Officially Screwed

 

Yep, that’s what we are, screwed. Fake president Trump keeps signing executive orders without checking the legality of them. Most of them will be overturned by the courts but with the supreme court being appointed by Trump, they stand a good chance of being upheld when they get there.

 

I understand that Trump surrogates will no longer be allowed to do interviews with CNN because Trump says it is fake news. I hold

CNN at least partly responsible for Trump getting into office because of their shoddy reporting. They focused on Hillary’s emails and failed to tell the public what kind of person Trump is. Now they have to pay the piper. Meanwhile, the rest of the main stream media is still being Trumps little whore because they  are afraid of being kicked out of his phony press conferences. It’s definitely not the media of old.

 

Trump seems to like people until they say something he doesn’t like, then he turns on them. I wonder how long before Kellyanne Conway screws up. When she does and Trump dumps her, I’m betting she will begin to sing like a canary, telling all Trumps dirty little secrets.

 

When was the last time a presidents appointees were unqualified for the job? Remember, "you’re doing a good job, Brownie."

 

America goes into reverse

America Slams Into Reverse

 

 The New Colossus

 

 Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

 

 Stay away, you are no longer welcome in America.

 

 Trumps idea to make America great again is to reverse everything that made America great. Immigrants made this nation. It was immigrants that spread from sea to s[I am well aware what these same immigrants did to the natives as they spread throughout the land, but that is not what this writings about.]

It was immigrants that built the nations railroads

,Chinese from the west and Irish from the east, and who can forget Croation born Nikola Tesla

who gave us alternating current, thus bringing electricity into every home in America, and German born Werner Von Braun,  who was intramental in the United states putting the first man on the moon. Even the pizza was invented by an Italian immigrant living in Chicago.

Throughout history immigrants have arrived on Americas shores with new hopes and new dreams  and America has surged into a world power. Now fake president Trump says they are no longer welcome here, especially those from Muslim countries (except the ones he does business with) and those south of our border and America slams into reverse.
