The GOP is working hard in repealing consumer protections. This should be getting you inflamed! They are handing control back to lenders and bankers. They are even repealing protections for our military who are preyed upon but salesman and lenders because they know their interests are assured no matter how unscrupulousness they are.

This is not draining the swamp, that was all a lie. This is the most corrupt administration to ever rule this country and everyone will be a victim of it. As predicted, the majority of tax cuts to corporations are not trickling down, they are just buying back their own stock to raise their bottom line. Your kids will be paying for their robbery of this country.

You do know you pay for tariffs right? It is just like a federal sales tax where the government takes a big cut right off the top. Your low and middle income tax cuts will not even keep up with that. Paying much more for gas also? Not only is the GOP fossil fuel friendly, their policies raise prices for even more profit. Why do you think they want to roll back mileage on cars?

Donald Trump is a con man, he always was a con man. If you voted for him you were gullible and you were conned, sorry but there is no way to sugar coat that. You are now being robbed in every possible way by this con man and his cronies. What are you going to do about it?

Deficit spending no longer matters as long as they get the money, its you and your kids who will have to pay it back. I am mad as hell and you should be also. Stop letting the wool be pulled over your eyes and wake up. I don’t care how conservative you are, only a blue wave will bring back balance in our government and stop these thieves from sacking our country.

And stop letting them make “entitlements” a bad word. You paid for them all your life and are entitled to them! That’s what the word means, not welfare or hand outs. People depend of Social Security and Medicare, life’s hang in the balance. They are more important than all the military spending we waste being places we should not be.

What do you think we accomplished with the trillions of dollars spent in Iraq and Afghanistan? You can thank the GOP for that. Follow the money and see who really benefited for those wars. Lets not forget how dangerous this country and the world has become since then. Why do you think these people hate us so much?

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

Maybe its just me but I have a problem with a possible defendant picking his own judge on the Supreme Court… I think its a safe bet that the SCOTUS will be taking plenty of cases involving Trump. Everything Trump does will make its way up to the Supreme Court.

 

*EPA Threats & Climate Change*

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

I do not support a carbon tax paid at the gas pump. Maybe if I had more money and could afford one of those fancy electric cars but many of us are suck with what we have. If you live in an apartment without charging options you are surely stuck with gas.

This does mean I accept lowering emission or fuel economy standards and I certainly support looking at new technologies to overcome the growing carbon problem. I am just saying that putting the burden on us, people stuck with gasoline burning vehicles, does not seem fair.

How about our government doing what the rest of the civilized world does and support alternative clean energy? Staying in the Paris Climate Accord would have also been at least a good start to showing we are serious rather than just turning a blind eye to science. Science is great when you want that life saving treatment but its fake when it goes up against big oil? Get serious, you are being conned!

 

*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.

Trumps SCOTUS pick Brett Kavanaugh supports corporate censorship.

 

 

*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.
