The Political Wrecking Ball

Republicans took a stab at destroying Obama Care. Sometimes I think thats all they want to do, is destroy everything in site. Just like when George Bush Jr became president. He made it clear the projected budget surplus was simply because people paid too much in taxes.So he sent everybody $300-$600 checks, as well as giving the very wealthy an enormous tax break. As well as getting us into a war, we simply coudnt afford and had no buisness getting involved with. Costing us trillions of dollars over the course of the loan we had to take to pay for the war. Now Republicans under the leadership of Paul Ryan are detemined to destroy the affordable Care act. They are looking to take away the insurance of 32 million Americans, with no plan to reinsure them. Fortunately for America, their first atempt failed. Unfortunatley they will probably try again. Paul Ryan has made it clear he has no desire to work with Democrats on a compromise. Notably there is a former conservative congressman worth listening too. His name is Jin Mccrory. He points out and I quote. “you have to have something like Obamacare if you want a healthcare system that gets as many people covered as possible that’s not single payer” His solution not only makes sense, it reaches across both sides of the aisle in compromise and...

A New Racket

Smedley Darlington Butler was a United States Marine Corps major general; the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. Here is how he described war. I Have attached the audio of the entire speech he made about war. War Is A Racket WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes. In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows. Well there’s a new gangster in town. Will call him Dapper Don the 2nd. He’s...

My Plan for America

I have attached the YouTube video of Bernie Sanders responding to Donald trumps speech. He sites several things President Trump did not mention. A) Presidents Trumps campaign promise not to cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. B) The widest gap of income wealth inequality. The widest gap since the 1920s C) The 5-4 Supreme Court vote in favor of the Citizens United Decision, allowing millionaires and billionaires to buy elections. D) Voter suppression. Republican governors, all over the country are working hard to make it more difficult for young people, low-income people, and senior citizens, people of color to vote. E) The environment and climate change. F) More people in jail than anywhere in the world. G) The simple fact that we need the best-educated work force in the world to compete in a highly competitive global economy. H) Creating tuition free community colleges, and addressing the student loan crisis. Here is a how I think we can begin to solve some of these enormous challenges. I call my plan EAP. (Education Action Plan). Education Action Plan is the foundation of my legislative agenda. It takes into consideration all of the challenges Bernie Sanders points out and the president ignores. Typically politicians are short on solutions, all to often there busy pointing out the serious low points of the other party candidate. All the while forgetting to offer what...

Is he Muslim?

I don’t know if he is Syrian, Muslim, Jewish, or Christian. All I know is he is a 4 year old boy who died when his boat capsized fleeing war-torn Syria. Donald Trump’s Safe Zone Policy in Syria prioritizing Christians is racist and ignorant. His banning Muslims from entering the United States of America is racist, ignorant and unconstitutional. Together, we can stop Trump with intellectual conversation as our weapon of choice. Follow this link to join efforts to stop President Trump’s racist...

Winner Takes all politics

What is winner takes all politics? Winner takes all politics is essentially a Republican Party philosophy. It is widely believed to be the cause of the enormous problem of income inequality. The old saying the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, is all to true. Although Republicans fight for big corporate tax cuts, failing to consider the skyrocketing federal budget deficits. They argue those tax cuts will improve the economy so much, that the amount of tax revenue will grow and reduce the federal budget shortfall. Than the argument can be it is Democrats who are fighting for the middle class and poor. They have become the countries HR department essentially. They fight for healthcare for all; they fight to increase the minimum wage. They fight to give unions greater power. But in there, lie the great liberal conspiracy. It was President Obama who agreed to make the Tax-Extenders, tax cut permanent. Tax-Extenders got the name because every year congress had to vote to extend it. Tax-Extenders was a Trillion dollars in many different tax breaks for a large umber of different businesses. Do we really need another Trillion dollars in tax breaks for big profitable business. Keep in mind President Donald Trump who didn’t pay taxes for 15 years. He said its because he’s smart. Apple computer CEO Steve Cook, when called out by Congress for...
