as Trump’s cruelty increases…

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.

With the intentional and ever increasing violence and cruelty being enacted against immigrants and asylum seekers, it is time to remember these words of President Roosevelt. The Trump administration is daily ripping away at the true values and character of our nation. Unless we stop this madness we will all live to see the death of democracy as we have known it.

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.
