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.

The GOP Tax Plan Illustrated

Sometimes it can be difficult to get our heads around the massive injustice of the GOP tax plan. The numbers are staggering, and the sheer immorality of the Republican leaders is beyond comprehension.

The illustration above is an attempt to give a graphic picture of the reality of what’s going down. #BLOTUS and his Republican cohorts are desperate for a win, and they are obligated to pay back their mega donors. This tax bill will do both while most of us will suffer the consequences.

Every concerned/outraged citizen needs to contact their representatives and shout/scream “NO.” And we need to do it now.

Pence’s piety paradox

The Piety Paradox: America is simultaneously the most professedly Christian of the developed nations and the least Christian in its behavior. http://www.marioninstitute.org/node/230 God's Political Party: The Ten Commandments of our Party of God. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/540924605219994639/ “The fruits of Christianity were religious wars, butcheries, crusades, inquisitions, extermination of the natives in America, and the introduction of African slaves in their place” - Arthur Schopenhauer

Actions speak far louder than words. And the reality is that no amount of lying can cover up the lack of love, caring and compassion that is missing from this man’s life. Christianity is not a cloak of respectability to be worn to cover immoral actions.

there’s a difference (part 2)

With no one watching, and no one reporting, the powerful can get away with whatever they desire. A free press is there to protect our freedoms that many would take away from us one piece at a time.

The GOP attacks on the press, led by the #BLOTUS is not surprising. Those that slither in the dark never want the light of truth to reveal their actions.

All of us need to do whatever we can to support journalists and reporters, and all the investigative digging that is done to keep us free.

leadership in the wrong direction? or no leadership?

This is a snapshot of what it looks like when our “leaders” are willing to abandon any semblance of representing the majority of us to pass a bill that’s DOA. Their boss, the #BLOTUS, has threatened them and given them orders, and the Koch brothers have promised millions to them if they get in line.

Now, we just need to see which of them have the guts to do the right thing. The real leaders will do the right thing for the citizens of our country. The morally bankrupt will quack their way to the bank to see how much they earned for turning their backs on the nation.
