the art of the deal

Every day, every single day, brings new, fresh and more clear evidence that this man is blatantly and brazenly destroying the rule of law in our country. His criminality, fueled by his greed, racism and unimaginable egotism threatens the foundations of our democracy.

This lying pig needs to have impeachment proceedings against him begin now. The same also holds true for Attorney General Barr and Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell and his wife.

only one plan…

I guess this could be filed under some things just never change…or maybe do unto others, just don’t get caught.

I would love to see what ol’ Will would say about the lying pig that is now in office. I doubt most of it would be fit for public consumption.

MAGA…really?

The man in the offal office controls the Executive branch of the government. His party controls both the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court leans right, as well. And #BLOTUS still whines about the obstructionist Democrats.

He has been in office for almost a full year.  Just what exactly is his definition of making America great again? His tiny legacy, like everything else connected to him is a shameful failure that demonstrates a dangerous lack of morality and an egotistical focus on personal greed.

#BLOTUS: the Lying King

The Republican Tax Bill is another gigantic lie. Our president is desperate for a political win, and the Republicans in Congress refuse to demonstrate they have the morals to do anything but pay off their mega donors.

Liar-in-Chief, #BLOTUS, the Lying King, whatever he is called, the truth is that the man in the Offal Office is a pathological liar unfit to to do anything but run with the hyenas. He is actually afraid of the truth, and flees from it like vampires flee from sunlight.

If he wasn’t so dangerous it would be funny. But, the reality is this man is a true threat to democracy. It’s time for all citizens to realize what he is doing to destroy the values we have long lifted up to the world.

a good definition

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. – Oscar Ameringer

This is one of those beautifully simplistic, yet absolutely true definitions that I love.

During these never-ending tax cut debates, it is worth remembering that Warren Buffet once said. According to Mr. Buffet, we could have a balanced federal budget anytime we want one. His solution is as simple as the definition above: No member of Congress is eligible for reelection if they are seated in a year when our budget has more than a 3% deficit.

Sounds good to me. What do you think?

Morally Obscene Budget Cutting

I am not familiar with all these programs. Some may need to be cut or scaled back. I just want to address two that I know well.

The first one on this list, the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education is one of the most effective and powerful programs the US has for helping end hunger in our lifetime. This is a program that deserves far more funding, not less. And it certainly should not be cut.

PL 480 Title II Food Aid is another program designed to help end global hunger, one acknowledged by most to be a powerful tool in the fight for food for all. It has helped millions break the chains of malnutrition,

Adopting this is a shameful exercise, clearly aimed at making the rich richer at the cost of the social responsibility our country has always demonstrated as a global leader. Such cuts are morally repugnant, like the one proposing them. Caring citizens should do all in our power to oppose such a budget.
