Here we go again. Will we even learn from history?
We now have a country where the wealthy are in control. They have and use the power to feather their own nests at the cost of the poor and middle classes. The recent tax scam is only the latest demonstration.
We now live in a nation where 95% of us provide labor and benefits for the power elite. Welcome to a class society where your position is to serve the wealthy, Unless we decide to change it, this is fast becoming our world.
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 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.
Every society has its own acceptable norms. What #BLOTUS is doing to the norms of this country is frightening, Personally, I think he is the leading factor in changing what is considered acceptable behavior in our society.
His behavior and his actions are not reflective of who we are as a nation. He isn’t a leader we want our children to emulate. We cannot allow him to normalize behavior that should never be accepted in a free and democratic society.
There are always those that must have someone to look down on. That’s not new or news. And we all know that the poor are mostly powerless to defend themselves. That makes them the target of choice for a variety of social ills.
Having voluntarily lived in poverty, myself, and have worked with and walked along side the poor of the world for almost five decades, I have a fairly strong understanding of their struggle. The vast majority of those living in poverty around the world consistently work harder that most of us can begin to comprehend.
The true culprit is the unadulterated greed of those of us who are wealthy beyond measure. We see unlimited wealth as a right, not a gift, and we refuse to share our abundance. Any professing Christian pointing to the poor as a problem is not believer in Jesus Christ and has certainly never met the Jesus of the Gospels.
