Even before Trump, our allies in NATO have been growing tired of our behavior, like when we trumpeted lies and propaganda to encourage them to join our war in Iraq. Now America has a President that is insulting members of NATO and the G7.
The poor are an important part of the American economic food chain. While they are threatened, scrutinized and hated upon, they are still needed. They are the spenders and consumers helping produce the world’s largest economy.
If the Democrats are ever to win and have any influence for good they have to be real the Genuine Article. The party of Clinton won the battle but lost the war. Corporate Democrats aren’t any better than Republicans.
This unmerciful biased court is going to undo not just the Great Society of President Johnson but probably the New Deal itself. Social Security is at risk. Medicare is at risk. Medicaid is at risk.
I think one of the reasons that we haven’t successfully prosecuted Republican Presidents stems from President Gerald Ford’s pardoning of President Nixon. That pardon has led to a culture of impunity.
If things are chaotic the rich can do whatever they want with less resistance. Most importantly, they are hell bent on accumulating all future income and, since Reagan, they have done a cleanup job of this endeavor.
600 women were arrested for civil disobedience at the Senate Hart Office Building. They symbolically wrapped themselves in thermal blankets to represent the shelters the refugee children have to live in.
We like to promote men of low moral content. Most of them received draft deferments but, as true chicken hawks, can think only about war. That’s why I stop every time I hear John Lennon sing: “Love is the Answer”!
The creed of Reaganomics is greed is good. Just tell that to the child that doesn’t see his parents anymore because of a two job work load or is going to bed hungry. Is this the so-called “Promised Land”?
We have to worry if Trump plans to go to war to win re-election as a war president, like George Bush Jr. before him. And would he go to war just to please munition manufactures? What’s he trying to accomplish?
