Progressive Ways | Our Revolution | Organize Seattle, WA

I would think that pulling kids away from their parents and sticking them in a tent city would be a bridge that even the GOP would find too far. How can you possibly be pro life and not give a damn about children after they are born? This is cruel and unusual punishment in the name of being cruel and punishing. Don’t you think it’s going a little too far as the tents fill up with children?

Let me tell you something. You don’t have to be a democrat to have progressive ideas and compassion for humanity. I believe everyone has the general idea of what is right and wrong. If you feel you need religion to have a clue, fine, dig down now on what you have learned. You Christians need to think about what he would do and then call your legislator and tell them to stop this crazy and inhuman treatment at the border.

You are making our border agents do this dirty work, taking the children away from parents, and then have to go home to their own families at night. You think this is what they signed up for? They would rather be chasing drug smugglers at the border. Stop the nonsense, this is really evil. If we are going to send them back, send them back as a family. We can’t just keep the kids. Is that the plan? Did people really sign up for this?

*Russian Interference, Obstruction, Pay Offs, And Abuse Of Power*

Trump’s continuing defense in every legal matter is that he is not the criminal, they are the criminals. He seems to be following the Nixon defense and who can not forget Nixon exclaiming “I am not a criminal”. Going one better, Trump’s defense says he is above the law and can pardon himself which is absolutely ridiculous.

 

*EPA Threats*

Clean coal is a myth. Here is the truth written in plain language.

The EPA also wants your cars to use more gas, to produce more greenhouse emissions. This will be interesting to watch as California will stick to the standards. Perhaps everyone should have the option to buy a car that meets CA Standards.

At the same time gas prices rise to the highest level in 8 years. Trump is invested in oil and pipelines so is it any wonder gas prices are rising and he does his best to keep that momentum. How I would have loved that Telsa electric car that Elon Musk shot into space…

 

*The Build Up To New Wars*

Normally you just have to follow the money. With higher gas prices come record profits for those that deal in oil. I feel many of the Middle East conflicts center around money and I am sure Trump and his big oil investors have reaped profit from him leaving the Iran deal.

You are seeing the results of it now at the pump. This is what Saudi Arabia has wanted for years, to make more money on a barrel of oil. The higher prices for a barrel of oil makes that dirty tar sand crud move into profitable and the need for pipe lines also if they can maintain the trend to more expensive oil.

Former President Obama put it; “Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies, and an agreement that our country’s leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated”. But I think Obama was not taking into account the greed of oil companies.

Follow the money, off course they want to shut down the flow of oil from Iran. I suppose Russia only halfheartedly condemns it as they will also profit. This is win-win for a lot of people unless you happen to be people of Iran.

 

*Net Neutrality*

On December 14th, the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai repealed Net Neutrality. This is just one more thing no one asked for that the GOP shoved on us. Make no mistake about it, this is not the FCC doing this, this is Trump and the GOP that enabled Pai to do this.

Net Neutrality replaced over 700 rules and regulations for consumer protection. By killing Net Neutrality those rules are not coming back. Killing Net Neutrality brings back the wild west with Internet Service Providers like Verizon and Comcast in charge. This is why they have lobbied for this so hard and brought about people like Ajit Pai.

Luckily Washington State is leading the way in net neutrality. Bravo for us but I am sure the FCC will sue us over it for the benefit of Xfinity and Verizon.

 

 

*Political Comedy*

Its been seven months and it is overwhelming. Does that happen to you? I have to step back from it all and look at it in a different light. To that I send my thanks to Bill Maher, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Steven Colbert, Trevor Noah, Saturday Night Live, and Full Frontal with Samatha Bee. They prove that if it was not so serious it would be funny and what a joke our President, his spokespeople and his cabinet truly are.

The reason is very simple, this is a progressive website and Donald Trump has proved himself the exact opposite of progressive. His first moves in office were to dismantle any progressive gains and he has never been the president of all the people of the united states and he is certainly not my president. Here we believe in equality, equal rights for all, and a country that cares about its citizens. Donald Trump conned a lot of people to vote for him despite it was against their best interests. Up to now the only real interest he cares about are the very rich. So yes, the majority of this country and certainly progressives wait with baited breath till this person and his entire family is out of the white house, and yes, it gives us hope that one day the GOP will think about their constitutes instead of their party and rich donors.
