GOP tax plan: test failed

Was just talking about the difference between the Roosevelts and people like William Randolph Hearst. The Roosevelts used their wealth to make the world a better place, as opposed to building a big mansion and filling it with European art.

Maybe this should be the test of tax reform as well…just a thought. From all I’ve seen, the Republican Tax Bill does just the opposite.

We really don’t need to”help” our already profitable corporations and the wealthiest of the wealthy in our country. This tax plan doesn’t move us forward as a nation. It rewards the rich and ignores those needing help the most.

The Republican tax plan doesn’t make our country great, and it has nothing to do with progress. It is simply another demonstration of those in power paying back their wealthy backers. It is shameful at best, and morally repugnant to the core.

a two-level strategy

“Whether by design, or simply inertia, the Republican wrecking ball has been following a two-level strategy. Trump keeps the spotlight on himself with one act after another, assuming (correctly) that yesterday’s antics will be swept aside by today’s. And at the same time, often beneath the radar, the “respectable” Republican establishment chips away at government programs that might be of benefit to the general population, but not to their constituency of extreme wealth and corporate power. They are systematically pursuing what Financial Times economic correspondent Martin Wolf calls “pluto-populism,” a doctrine that imposes “policies that benefit plutocrats, justified by populist rhetoric.””

-Noam Chomsky

This makes sense to me. It seems a fairly decent description of what’s happening at the moment. Anyone else agree? How do we stop it?

the only thing that matters

This man would gladly watch the world burn and people suffering and dying and not miss any sleep just as long as he found a way to profit from it. This man only cares for him and his own.

This quote from George Orwell’s 1984 seems eerily relevant today, doesn’t it? It has become ever more clear that power is the one thing, the only thing, that matters to the #BLOTUS and the Republicans in Congress.

If you need an example, which most thinking folks don’t at this point, just look at the complete Republican support of Roy Moore to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Having another Republican vote in the Senate outweighs any question of improper or immoral behavior.

The many-times accused molester in the Offal Office has said that having a Republican like the accused child molester, Roy Moore, in the Senate is far preferable to having a Democrat, any Democrat, fill the seat. Moore not only has been accused by numerous women of involvement with them as young and underage girls, the man has twice been removed from his seat as Judge.

None of that matters. All that matters, the only thing that matters, is power, pure power.

smoke signals

You do not have to be Native American to realize the truth of Trump’s message. He is, after all, the “great communicator.” And nothing speaks louder than just watching him in action. He is the living definition of a racist pig…even if he does bray like a jackass.

#BLOTUS: a well-marked prince

...and he's only a snake oil salesman at that, so what are we waiting for??

As Mueller’s investigation draws ever closer to the #BLOTUS, these powerful words from our Declaration of Independence ring more true than ever before. The majority of the thinking world understands that the man is unfit for any role in civil society, much less  being the ruler of the United States.

The sooner #BLOTUS is legally removed from office, the sooner we can begin rebuilding our nation’s reputation again. I know what I would like for Christmas, and since I am not picky, I have two options. Impeachment proceedings is my first choice. My second is a letter of resignation.

The criminal trial and conviction for treason would just be a big bonus, as well as a salute to justice.
