Trump’s Tax Cut for the Rich Law FAILS to help Most Americans… Promises Made, Promises Broken…

July 6, 2018

https://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2018/06/19/six-month-report-card-gives-trump-gop-tax-cuts-failing-grades

Key findings from the ATF report show that:

  • Although President Trump promised the average worker would see a $4,000 pay raise due to the tax cuts, only 4% of workers so far are getting a bonus or wage hike.
  • Only 402 of the nation’s six million employers have announced any plans to share their tax cuts with employees through bonuses or wage hikes. The total is estimated at $7 billion so far. But that pales in comparison to the $77 billion in tax cuts that just 156 corporations are getting this year.
  • Corporations are giving huge windfalls to their CEOs and wealthy shareholders in the form of stock buybacks, as they own most stock. Corporations have announced $484 billion in stock buybacks since the tax law was passed. That’s 69 times more than the $7 billion corporations have promised workers through one-time bonuses and wage hikes.
  • Despite the promise that the tax cuts would increase wages, the government reported last week that in the last year average hourly wages for four out of five workers in the private sector have gone down after inflation.

In addition, by effectively repealing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act, the tax-cut law will cause:

  • 13 million Americans to lose health care coverage by 2025 [CBO].
  • ACA insurance premiums to spike by 10%, on average, most years for the next decade.

Speechless EPA boss Scott Pruitt is accosted in a DC restaurant by a mom cradling her young son, who accuses him of ruining the environment…

July 3, 2018

Enable Polluters Agency (AKA: Environmental Protection Agency) Administrator Scott Pruitt became the latest member of the Trump administration to face an angry showdown with a member of the public over the president’s divisive policies.

Pruitt was dining with a friend at Teaism restaurant in Washington DC on Monday, when he was confronted by local teacher who urged him to resign over the reported irreparable damage he is causing to the environment.

Walking over with her two-year-old son in her arms, Kristin Mink told Pruitt: ‘This is my son, he loves animals, he loves clean air, he loves clean water.’

How can we NOT SEE that Trump is taking America into a Totalitarian Future… Secret Prisons, assassination of JOURNALISTS, Rallies with screaming people… Blaming Minority Groups for all our problems…

It’s like Germany in the 1930s… and Drumpf (AKA Trump) wants to Lead a Thousand Year Reich.

Another name that was popular during this period was the term Tausendjähriges Reich (“ThousandYear Reich“), the millennial connotations of which suggested that Nazi Germany would last for a thousand years.

Great Book: “How the Right Lost Its Mind” by Charles Sykes – Explaining Trumpism and how reasonable people became rabid dogs…

June 19, 2018

Once at the center of the American conservative movement, bestselling author and radio host Charles Sykes is a fierce opponent of Donald Trump and the right-wing media that enabled his rise.

In How the Right Lost Its Mind, Sykes presents an impassioned, regretful, and deeply thoughtful account of how the American conservative movement came to lose its values. How did a movement that was defined by its belief in limited government, individual liberty, free markets, traditional values, and civility find itself embracing bigotry, political intransigence, demagoguery, and outright falsehood? How the Right Lost its Mind addresses:

*Why are so many voters so credulous and immune to factual information reported by responsible media?

*Why did conservatives decide to overlook, even embrace, so many of Trump’s outrages, gaffes, conspiracy theories, falsehoods, and smears?

*Can conservatives govern? Or are they content merely to rage?

*How can the right recover its traditional values and persuade a new generation of their worth?

Trump FALSELY Claims Democrats are to Blame for HIS “Zero Tolerance” policy that has CAUSED Children to be Separated from their Parents at Mexican Border.

June 19, 2018

Yes, once again Trump is CAUGHT LYING. In Reality, Jeff Sessions of DOJ wrote the policy and DHS and HHS are implementing it. Millions of Americans are OUTRAGED by this CHILD ABUSE. Trump COULD STOP his policy at any time but he doesn’t… 

Trump defiant as crisis grows over family separation at the border… 

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-family-separation-policy-border-20180618-story.html

The situation has become a moral test for President Donald Trump and his administration. The president on Monday voiced defiance and continued to falsely blame congressional Democrats for what he decried as a “horrible and tough” situation. But Trump is empowered to immediately order border agents to stop separating families as a result of his “zero tolerance” enforcement policy.


Trump again falsely blames the Democrats for his administration’s family separations…

New York Attorney General Sues Trump Foundation After 2-Year Investigation…

The New York State attorney general’s office filed a scathingly worded lawsuit on Thursday taking aim at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, accusing the charity and the Trump family of sweeping violations of campaign finance laws, self-dealing and illegal coordination with the presidential campaign.

The lawsuit, which seeks to dissolve the foundation and bar President Trump and three of his children from serving on nonprofit organizations, was an extraordinary rebuke of a sitting president. The attorney general also sent referral letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission for possible further action, adding to Mr. Trump’s extensive legal challenges.

Trump says EPA chief Scott Pruitt has received Death Threats. That makes me ask some VERY TROUBLING QUESTIONS…

April 9, 2018

For Example: What if you invented a Time Machine and could travel to Austria in 1900, would you shoot Adolph Hitler as a child? Do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one?

Yes, Scott Pruitt is causing damage to the USA by repealing Clean Air Laws and Clean Water Laws… and Yes, others in the Cursed Trump Administration want to repeal the Endangered Species Act… and Yes, Ryan Zinke wants to allow drilling for oil off the coasts… and in National Monuments…

BUT!

Do they deserve to die?

Why not Psychic Re-Grooving? Wouldn’t THAT be a better solution? Simply take them camping and let them eat peyote and dance all night around a fire while people play the drums? That would re-groove their bad attitudes… They would learn to LOVE animals and plants…

We would have an Environmental Protection Agency instead of an Enable Polluters Agency..

I have visited the John Lennon memorial in Central Park, New York City. I was walking along when I noticed a dramatic shift in consciousness among the people…

April 9, 2018

They all seemed to be moving slowly and had thoughtful expressions on their faces. Then I noticed a tile mosaic floor that said “Imagine” and I realized where I was.

I’m enjoying a 1963 movie called “Sunday in New York” starring Jane Fonda and Rod Taylor. It’s fun to see the “on location” shots of Central Park and the old cars, buses and airplanes… That was a time… Before the War in Vietnam… I can relate to Ronald Reagan’s slogan “Make America Great Again” as the memory of our youth is sweet… I was in third grade in 1963… The current President, Donald Trump has copied Reagan’s slogan and made it popular again.

One Cause of Global Warming is Automobile Exhaust. I don’t own a car. I ride the bus… It’s fun! Fix Global Warming…

April 9, 2018

I sleep on the way to work… You can’t do that if you drive…

I drink booze on the way home… You can’t do that if you drive…

However, I know people that travel great distances to get to work and cannot ride the bus or use BART. Friends of mine LIVE in Sacramento and WORK in San Francisco and commute back and forth every day. That’s INSANE but you do what you have to do to survive.

A really great solution would be to move the workplace closer to Home. Housing costs in the Bay Area are very high and MANY people choose to live in the central valley where housing costs are reasonable. Why NOT move high tech offices? What is the advantage to having an office in Sunnyvale, Santa Clara or Mountain View? With a shorter commute people would be happier and more productive… An hour+ commute each way really makes for a long workday… We should move offices to Stockton, Modesto, Turlock and Gilroy… That’s where the people live!

Zoning Laws made sense in the past when we wanted to keep industrial buildings far away from Homes. Industrial buildings often caused smoke and pollution… like steel mills and oil refineries…


Office Space could fill the empty stores at shopping malls… Since Amazon has caused retail stores to close why not use those vacant buildings for Cubical Farms?

Fix Global Warming

Trump supporters are killing themselves in record numbers. Suicide and Opioid Overdose increasing in the uneducated white male population.

April 9, 2018

Hope for the future is declining among Trump voters. There is a growing realization that Trump has not done anything to improve the quality of life for the people of the working class.  Chance of getting a good job is low. Trump is only helping the super rich get more money…

“The Forces Driving Middle-Aged White People’s ‘Deaths Of Despair’. 

In 2015, when researchers Anne Case and Angus Deaton discovered that death rates had been rising dramatically since 1999 among middle-aged white Americans, they weren’t sure why people were dying younger, reversing decades of longer life expectancy.

Now the husband-and-wife economists say they have a better understanding of what’s causing these “deaths of despair” by suicide, drugs and alcohol. In a follow-up to their groundbreaking 2015 work, they say that a lack of steady, well-paying jobs for whites without college degrees has caused pain, distress and social dysfunction to build up over time. The mortality rate for that group, ages 45 to 54, increased by a half percent each year from 1999 to 2013.”

First Nuclear Reactor construction in the USA in 34 years.

Fukushima, Chernobyl, TMI… WTF…

In February 2012, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved the construction license of the two proposed reactors at the Vogtle plant. NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko cast the lone dissenting vote on plans to build and operate the two new nuclear power reactors, citing safety concerns stemming from Japan’s 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, and saying “I cannot support issuing this license as if Fukushima never happened”.

The only way banks would approve this construction loan is with the guarantee that the Federal Government would pay off the loan in case of default.

It is essential that we guard our Nuclear Waste to prevent people from stealing it and building a dirty bomb. Therefore, we will have to pay the salaries of security guards for 3 billion years…  $8.00*24*365*3,000,000,000=2.1024e+14 

$210,240,000,000,000 per security guard… and we have at least 50 places that need to be guarded… in the USA alone… That’s a huge pile of money!

We can no longer afford to have a government that behaves like mindless vegetables.

Let’s cut defense spending and end CRAZYLAWS[tm].  The cost to society of the absurd Marijuana Prohibition plus War Profiteering will bankrupt our country and send the entire world into economic collapse. DUH.

Guns don’t kill people, BULLETS kill people and RUBBER BULLETS DON’T KILL ANYONE. Why don’t we simply take away the metal bullets from Police Nationwide.

April 2, 2018

Sacramento Police Murdered an Unarmed Black Man with METAL BULLETS.

It would SAVE LIVES and save Taxpayer expense of criminal trials of police officers. Recently, Police have murdered many Black Men and often courts award huge cash payments to the victims family. It would be better for EVERYONE if Police would simply STOP MURDERING PEOPLE.

Congress goes On Vacation to Avoid “March for our Lives” Protesters… How Inconvenient…

March 22, 2018

Vacation starts Friday, Protest March is Saturday… That way NO Actual Representatives will be in Washington DC to listen… The only way to be heard is to elect NEW representatives in November 2018. Simply Throw out the NRA Puppets.

2018 is our year to throw out the Republicrimes. When the House becomes Democratic, IMPEACHMENT is Inevitable.

March 22, 2018

So far, Trump and his Republicrime Congress have:

1. Passed a law that makes it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns. People that are receiving Social Security Disability Checks for Insanity are now eligible to purchase firearms. This LAW is insane!

2. Passed a Tax Cut for the Rich Law. No one that I know has received a tax cut because all my friends work for a living at a job. However, our COSTS for health insurance has gone up. This law was written by the rich for the rich.

3. Increased enforcement of immigration laws… attacking anyone that looks Hispanic… ICE is chasing random Latino people, citizens and aliens. DACA was repealed by Trump causing a very real threat of deportation to a million children brought to the USA by their parents.

4. Appointed Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. He has spent his career fighting against the EPA as a lawyer for the OIL and GAS industry. His goal is to dismantle the EPA so corporations can cut the costs of disposing of waste responsibly. Generations of Americans will live in polluted environments causing health disasters.

5. Appointed Ryan Zinke to lead the Department of the Interior. He reduced the size of National Monuments so OIL and GAS companies can drill on Federal Land. AND Trump made it legal for OIL companies to drill offshore… Creating the opportunity for ecological disaster like we had in the Gulf of Mexico.

6. Appointed Betsy DeVos hear of the Department of Education. She is opposed to funding Public Schools and is in favor of funding Private Schools. Private Schools are designed to have the freedom to teach “alternative” concepts like Creationism instead of Evolution using Federal Money to Promote Christianity. Private Schools are designed to be affordable by rich white students and NOT affordable by poor Black and Latino students. Segregation…
