Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Meanwhile in the USA; Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell (Republicans) are dismantling: women’s rights, equal rights, labor laws, freedom of speech, the Americans with Disabilities Act, EPA, FDA, Department of Education, supplemental nutrition programs… and through it all Donald Trump cannot stop talking about Donald Trump. Millionaire Paul Ryan can’t stop talking about the 2.6 trillion dollars of Social Security/Medicare money (in the US Treasury) that he wants to transfer to his billionaire benefactors at Goldman Sachs and Wall Street. Millionaire Mitch McConnell can’t stop privatizing the public property that belongs to the American taxpayer NOT millionaire Mitch McConnell’s benefactors at Exxon Mobil… and Mike Pence is just waiting for his hateful turn.

Donald Trump has personally insulted so many of us in so many hideous and awful ways while Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are robbing us. The Republican strategy is an old and simple one; Donald Trump insults you or appeals to your base/worst instincts and while you are fighting back or gloating… Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan pick our pockets.

Power to the people…

  1. Am getting scared of that your country’s leadership by the minute. I hope an executive order is not signed soon to start a third world war so the the shoots industry can kill in returns… It simply suck although your posts try to make some cheer amidst the despair

    • Hi Marie! Don’t despair because the good news is the eyes of the world are on this awful Republican bunch in the White House. Hopefully the people of the United States will finally realize that they must take better care of democracy. The Republicans, who are responsible for this mess, are starting to panic because they are being seen as greedy and heartless plutocrats.

      • It’s like the Republicans are trying to cause chaos on purpose… call me crazy but I’m hoping for a nullifcation of the election so we can get rid of Trump, Pence and all of their disgusting appointees.

  2. I hate to say it, but the day your Supreme Court decided that corporations had the same rights as people, and that decision largely went unnoticed, you had to know this was coming.
    And for the record, I wouldn’t give the title of liar to any one party but to politicians in general. It all scares me to think of what it might take to swing the pendulum back towards the middle 😦

    • You raise excellent points! the thing about corporations as people is that it really is not a Supreme Court decision but a memo that was written in the margins of a court document by a stenographer! Republicans have been treating this memo as law ever since. this, of course, brings us to the Citizens United decision, which is the Republican wet dream where money is speech.
      I have some experience in local government and the only thing that really makes me angry is to hear people say, “There is absolutely no difference between the political parties… they’re all alike!” HA! Donald Trump & the fascists that he has brought along with him should dispel that notion.
      The day after the election, House and Senate Republicans, who couldn’t be persuaded to do anything for the American people for the past 6 years, sprang into action dismantling every Progressive advancement from FDR forward. The modern Republican does not govern, he steals. the majority of them do not know how to write legislation (and don’t care) so they let lobbyists prepare their bills. ExxonMobil has authored every Energy bill for Republicans for decades. I could go on and on and on and on… anyway, the alarm clock of democracy is ringing! 👊🕕👍👍

    • LOL! I failed to mention that Paul Ryan’s critical qualification for Speaker of the House is that he comes from a safe Republican District and therefore will never ever ever ever ever go away. I refer to he and his kind as “unflushable Republican turds.” Unfortunately or fortunately, Paul Ryan, is skating on thin ice with his own party. The new breed of Republicans, in the House of Representatives, are former Fox News talk show hosts and conspiracy theorists who have been sent to Washington, by the Red States, because they are anti-government, social Nazis & xenophobes. These “Young Guns”, as they call themselves, refer to Paul Ryan as a “Pussy” (which he is) because all he wants to do is steal and is not nearly strong enough on the social Nazi front… like their hero’s Mike Pence and Steve Bannon. Unfortunately, for us, if the new Republicans are successful in unseating Paul Ryan pickpocketing “pussy” will be replaced with a Nazi social engineering pickpocket. so, as you see, Republicans have created quite a conundrum with their own party in-fighting. We really cannot win. Our only hope is that Donald Trump and his fascist Pals will bring down the whole disgusting Republican Party. 💩💩💩💩😝

  3. 👍👍 Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan definitely cannot stand up to the scrutiny that Trump’s treason has brought them. Everyone now knows that they cannot replace Obamacare because they have no idea how to write legislation and the usual authors of their legislation, the lobbyists, have positively no interest in helping people… so The Prompt Care debacle will forever be known as proof of Republican incompetence. I would hate to be a Republican in federal government but the fact that they couldn’t see this coming and they all jumped on board is enough reason to throw all of the Republican bums out. I’ll say it again because it’s all you really need to know; Republicans don’t govern, they steal.
