truly offensive

Individualism

There are things that truly offend me. Poverty, war and greed are but three. Injustice is another one that makes the list, as does lying, corrupt leaders.

Recognize the poster child for greed? He, and (everything he stands for) also offends me.

the true collaspe

Which is bigger, the size of Trump’s lies or the length of his ties?

In the seven decades I have been around, there’s been no man that has created so much mayhem so rapidly, and has lied so consistently. The United States is under attack from its own president. The #BLOTUS is toxic, pure and simple.

The Affordable Care Act definitely needs work. But, it isn’t collapsing so much as being intentionally destroyed by a tiny little man with a tiny little head and even smaller, hate-filled heart.

listing the Liar’s lies

When was the last time a US president’s lies filled an entire page of the New York Times? When has there been a time in our nation’s history when so many ignored the lies to continue supporting such a real loser?

The growing shame of our country is not the ignorance, greed and total immorality of #BLOTUS. The true shame of our nation is the willing acceptance and continued support of such a man by all those who do not care about the reality of what he is and what he grabbing.

ramming through the “wealthcare” bill

This isn’t democracy at work…it is unadulterated greed;  partisan politics working to benefit the wealthy, with no pretense of helping those in our society with the greatest need. Every senator voting for this bill is sending a clear and unambiguous one-finger salute to the vast majority of our nation.

#NoOneAboveTheLaw

I find it difficult to understand how our current president can so brazenly disregard the law. His actions continue to mock our entire justice system as he ignores any law with which he doesn’t agree. It must be nice to act like a dictator, and get away with it.

#BLOTUS and his Flying Monkeys

Earlier this morning I read that Robert Mueller’s team has added over a dozen new attorneys to help dig deeper into the malfeasance and corruption at the heart of Trump’s circle. Now, the president’s personal lawyer, following the wise move of Vice President Pence, has hired another lawyer to represent him. When lawyers hire lawyers they know it is about to get real.

Trump is single-handedly attempting to kick-start the economy by providing more jobs for lawyers. I don’t care how many flying monkeys the #Blotus lets fly, the Hounds of Justice are coming after him, and he can feel them getting ever closer.

the lion’s share of care

Whenever those in power seek to secretly take away the benefits of over 22 million of our citizens they need to be held accountable. A plan so obviously flawed, so heavy weighted with huge tax breaks for the already obscenely rich, is not good for our nation.

Such a bill is definitely good in the eyes of the powerful and wealthy elite. But such a bill is morally repugnant, like those who crafted it and are trying to fast-track it through the Senate. Like their greed and their hubris, their shame has no limits.
