You Got Played cont.

As I keep saying to Trump Voters …. You Got Played. He keeps giving the base what they wanted , knowing that the courts would stop him. The upside “I wrote an executive order and those damn liberal courts blocked me” . Win Win , the other promises ” On the First Day” nothing , that damn congress , than damn press , those damn libtards , that damn intelligence community , that dam judiciary. He couldn’t remember to put his hand over his heart at the egg roll , natasha had to tell him. He’s the F- in president , if that gesture was hard to remember , now we know why “healthcare is hard”.

Those Pesky Democratic Socialists

In a recent FB post a writer blamed waste in Government spending  on “Democratic Socialists…..

Democratic Socialists? you say that like its a bad thing. BTW it’s good to know if you lose your job you will decline unemployment checks and when you’re old , you will respectfully decline your Social Security. You’re probably against money to pay local Police, Fire and EMT’s. You probably will work over 40 hours without overtime and would love a job in a sweatshop . Damn Those Bleeding Hearts , Damn Them. Anything that Big has waste, Anything. Yes it’s broken , but you were probably all in on 5 Billion Dollars a week spend on the Afghan War when 19 of the 911 Hijackers were Saudi Nationals as well as Osama Bi Laden , and a member of a prominent Saudi family. Before you say it , I am proud to be a Social Democrat , yes one of them again. In case you don’t have a dictionary in your bookcase…. Social democracy is a political, social and economic ideology that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a capitalist economy, as well as a policy regime involving a commitment to representative democracy, measures for income redistribution, and regulation of the economy in the general interest and welfare state provisions. Social democracy thus aims to create the conditions for capitalism to lead to greater democratic, egalitarian and solidaristic outcomes; and is often associated with the set of socioeconomic policies that became prominent in Northern and Western Europe—particularly the Nordic model in the Nordic countries—during the latter half of the 20th century. And while i’m on a Rant, Congress sets the spending and they have Oversight power, A congress that was controlled by Republican six years of President Obama’s presidency . A Congress that told President Obama that he could NOT launch Airstrikes in Syria. I’ll bet you are a Trump supporter , he did it on his own, notifying the Russians but not his parties Congress. Here’s a question for you, Where does an American soldier eat dinner in Afghanistan , behind a rock. Where does a drone pilot eat dinner, At Applebee’s with their Family

My Mom said Son, Pick Your Battles

So its ok for Democrats to be the party of NO! Hey Chuck PICK YOUR BATTLES. I would rather see the Democratic leadership replaced. If Pelosi worked for you you would fire her. She has been unable to “move the ball” for six years , she’s gotta go! And Shumer, your old school, yesterdays politician , you gotta go TOO! The old guard has failed us. The Republicans get things done, albeit ACA. Democratic Congressman should focus on making deals, thats what I call politics. We don’t need to be the new Bully on the playground. The focus should be on the Midterm. We need new leadership. Gorsuch will replace Scalia, OK, tell me what Sotomayor and Kagan have done to change the world. And Trumps 2nd choice might be a Robert Bork.

Trump facts for today

1. He called Hillary Clinton a crook.
You bought it.
Then he paid $25 million to settle a fraud lawsuit.

2. He said he’d release his tax returns, eventually.
You bought it.
He hasn’t, and says he never will.

3. He said he’d divest himself from his financial empire, to avoid any conflicts of interest.
You bought it.
He is still heavily involved in his businesses, manipulates the stock market on a daily basis, and has more conflicts of interest than can even be counted.

4. He said Clinton was in the pockets of Goldman Sachs, and would do whatever they said.
You bought it.
He then proceeded to put half a dozen Goldman Sachs executives in positions of power in his administration.

5. He said he’d surround himself with all the best and smartest people.
You bought it.
He nominated theocratic loon Mike Pence for Vice President. A white supremacist named Steve Bannon is his most trusted confidant. Dr. Ben Carson, the world’s greatest idiot savant brain surgeon, is in charge of HUD. Russian quisling Rex Tillerson is Secretary of State.

6. He said he’d be his own man, beholden to no one.
You bought it.
He then appointed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, whose only “qualifications” were the massive amounts of cash she donated to his campaign.

7. He said he would “drain the swamp” of Washington insiders.
You bought it.
He then admitted that was just a corny slogan he said to fire up the rubes during the rallies, and that he didn’t mean it.

8. He said he knew more about strategy and terrorism than the Generals did.
You bought it.
He promptly gave the green light to a disastrous raid in Yemen- even though all his Generals said it would be a terrible idea. This raid resulted in the deaths of a Navy SEAL, an 8-year old American girl, and numerous civilians. The actual target of the raid escaped, and no useful intel was gained.

9. He said Hillary Clinton couldn’t be counted on in times of crisis.
You bought it.
He didn’t even bother overseeing that raid in Yemen; and instead spent the time hate-tweeting the New York Times, and sleeping.

10. He called CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times “fake news” and said they were his enemy.
You bought it.
He now gets all his information from Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and InfoWars.

11. He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done.
You bought it.
He took his first vacation after 11 days in office.
On the taxpayer’s dime.
And went golfing.

And that’s just the first month.

Making America Great Again? You remember before Clean Air and Water , before Womens Rights , Gay Rights , Civil Rights , Animal Rights before the Sinclair Lewis, John Lewis , Yea When only WHITE Males were in charge. You Remember don’t you!

Money For Nothing

You demand that we stop giving  money to people that don’t work?

Those pesky retirees, handicapped and under employed, and those pesky 1% that don’t pay soc sec tax on income over 85,000. And those beggars that make over 250,000 annually that are taxed at 35%. In Eisenhower day , you remember when America was GREAT. The average tax rate on incomes over 250,000 was 70 to 90 %. Yea back when banks did’nt steal from account holders and then paid millions of dollars in bonuses. Yeah those dopers on Welfare , the ones two states found were less than 1% of recipients. I think we would be better off if we withheld more money from rich people including healthcare ceo’s . They have more money than those despicable poor people , Why not let them eat CAKE!!!!!
