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.

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?

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.

Great Book: “Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic” by David Frum – How Trump is looting America in order to steal more money for himself.

June 17, 2018

Bestselling author, former White House speechwriter, and Atlantic columnist and media commentator David Frum explains why President Trump has undermined our most important institutions in ways even the most critical media has missed, in this thoughtful and hard-hitting book that is a warning for democracy and America’s future.

“From Russia to South Africa, from Turkey to the Philippines, from Venezuela to Hungary, authoritarian leaders have smashed restraints on their power. Media freedom and judicial independence have eroded. The right to vote remains, but the right to have one’s vote counted fairly may not. Until the US presidential election of 2016, the global decline of democracy seemed a concern for other peoples in other lands. . . . That complacent optimism has been upended by the political rise of Donald Trump. The crisis is upon Americans, here and now.”

Quietly, steadily, Trump and his administration are damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy, perhaps irrevocably. As he and his family enrich themselves, the presidency itself falls into the hands of the generals and financiers who surround him.

While much of the country has been focused on Russia, David Frum has been collecting the lies, obfuscations, and flagrant disregard for the traditional limits placed on the office of the presidency. In Trumpocracy, he documents how Trump and his administration are steadily damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy. During his own White House tenure as George W. Bush’s speechwriter, Frum witnessed the ways the presidency is limited not by law but by tradition, propriety, and public outcry, all now weakened. Whether the Trump presidency lasts two, four, or eight more years, he has changed the nature of the office for the worse, and likely for decades.

In this powerful and eye-opening book, Frum makes clear that the hard work of recovery starts at home. Trumpocracy outlines how Trump could push America toward illiberalism, what the consequences could be for our nation and our everyday lives, and what we can do to prevent it.

Trump: LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE… Caught on film, Trump lied to TV Cameras about payment to Stormy Daniels.

May 4, 2018

It’s fun to watch Trump’s Minions sweat on TV about being CAUGHT lying. Sarah Huckabee Sanders invented a new excuse for telling lies… I spoke the truth as I knew it at the time… making her the victim of believing lies… not the teller of lies…

This Week Was A Great Reminder That Trump Is A Huge Liar…

Voting in 2018 can lead to an end of Donald Trump’s attack on Mexican Americans.

May 2, 2018

When the Democrats take over the House of Representatives and the Senate we can have Impeachment Hearings Started. At the very least, a Democratic Congress will stop further evil being done. Ask your friends… Is it a danger to vote? Does that act put undocumented family members in danger of being deported? I believe that it is safe to vote. I believe that it is safe to fill out the Census. I may be wrong.

Trump’s war against Hispanic people has lead to Actual American Citizens being chased by police and dying in a car crash. The ICE police target anyone that looks Mexican. Spanish Names… Brown Skin… Trump’s ICE Army is a danger to those people. We can rise up together and throw out the Politicians that support this war on immigrants and anyone that LOOKS like an immigrant.

Register and vote. Make your voice heard. Did you notice that the herbicide Roundup is widly used in California’s Central Valley? Roundup Causes Cancer. The main use is in the valley South of Sacramento. The people that live and work there are mainly Latino. They are being poisoned so that Monsanto can make a profit. Politicians are  not outraged by this poisoning because the victims are Latino… They just don’t care!

Let’s elect people that are Brown, Black, White, Yellow, Red, male, female and Paisley! The era of Rich Old White Christian Men ruling the USA is ending soon. Vote!

Greetings: Here are some simple ideas for making the world a better place. Please pass them on…

May 2, 2018

Open Letter to our Elected Representatives. Please copy, paste and email, like and share… Spread these Ideas worldwide.

1. We ought to cut spending at the Department of Defense and use the money for valuable projects. Simply stop the wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Africa and all those secret locations. Bring the soldiers and the weapons home. We currently waste a vast fortune on wars that accomplish nothing. We could spend the trillions currently wasted on Medicare for all, infrastructure, teacher’s salaries or school supplies. Remember that the US Military has not DEFENDED the USA since 1945. We have only invaded other countries… Often, our invasions cause disaster. For Example: When we helped Saddam Hussein become President and then blew up Iraq. Not a brilliant idea. Then we left stockpiles of weapons that were stolen by ISIS, Arming Terrorists. If we had just stayed home we could have saved six trillion dollars… The War in Afghanistan is impossible to win. Why not “Declare Victory”, bring the troops home and have big parades?

2. We ought to encourage people to switch to exercise bicycles that generate electricity. They could sell the power to the power company. The kinetic energy created by people pedalling can be converted into electricity by using an alternator, diode and battery. Many people use stationary bicycles for exercise and these could be used to create electricity.

3. We ought to legalize and tax marijuana nationwide. Release all cannabis prisoners. This would reduce government spending and increase VOLUNTARY taxes collected. The prisoners could spend their time working for a living and supporting their own families. That would reduce the costs of welfare and food stamps.

4. We ought to impeach Trump. He is taking the country in the wrong direction. His agenda is to cut taxes for the rich and reduce pollution control costs in corporations. He wants to increase drilling for oil, gas and coal mining. That causes more pollution. Burning fossil fuels causes global warming. Climate Change will make large parts of the USA uninhabitable. The Gulf Coast and the East Coast will have hurricanes every year. The destruction will become more than we are able to repair.

5. We ought to fund basic research into clean energy projects. Better electric cars, solar energy, wind energy and wave/tidal power plants. Better batteries… Better air conditioners… We are fighting for our lives. This should be funded like The Manhattan Project of World War Two or the Moon Landing.

6. We ought to reduce the amount of electricity used. Marijuana farms often use grow lights indoors to simulate sunshine needed for plants to grow. We could simply move all farms outdoors. These indoor farms often use stolen power that is unregulated. I have seen explosions at the Humboldt Bay power plant due to unforeseen surges of electricity use. The criminals tap the power on the street side of the power meter to avoid paying for electricity. That makes the power companies guess about consumption and how big transformers need to be. Another way to reduce demand is to teach people that transformers consume electricity even when not being used if they are connected to the wall outlet. We should teach people that a power strip with an on/off switch can cut their bill.

7. We ought to reduce the amount of gasoline used by commuters by moving the office closer to home. Every day people commute to work and if corporations moved the location of office buildings to residential locations, we would save gas, increase time spent away from work and increase happiness of workers. For Example: Silicon Valley and San Francisco have many jobs for people that create software. The tech corporations have headquarters where the employees work. People drive many miles thru traffic jams to get to those headquarters. A better plan would be to split the corporate headquarterss to many different locations in the suburbs. The people could co-ordinate their labor using the internet. The price of housing in Silicon Valley is very expensive in comparison to towns in the central valley. People should pay attention to commute time as an important factor in selecting a job. Currently people pay attention to pay rate, benefits and child care when selecting which job to take. They ought to have a choice of shorter commutes as well. It’s an insane waste of time to drive to work. Riding the bus is much more fun.

8. We ought to change the EPA from Enabling Pollution Agency to Environmental Protection Agency. Under the Trump Administration we have seen a reduction of enforcement of laws prohibiting corporations from polluting the environment. Scott Pruitt wants to cut the costs corporations pay for ecology. And in a bizarre twist, he wants to change the rules for scientific research to prohibit health studies that protect the privacy of the people studied. HIPPA requires health information to remain private in any study of people’s health. He also wants to prohibit reports from scientists that do business with the EPA while allowing reports from people hired by lobbyists. This would shift the reports in favor of polluting companies.

9. We ought to outlaw assault rifles. We outlawed machine guns and hand grenades in 1934. There is no need for assault rifles. NRA members often say that they need guns for hunting… So, we ought to allow rifles but not assault rifles. NRA members often say we need guns to protect our families… So, pistols can protect our families. We do not need bazookas, rocket launchers or anti-aircraft guns… We ought to protect our citizens from insane gunmen with assault rifles. Las Vegas, Columbine and Florida would not have been a mass murder without absurd firepower. Remember, when you have a gun in the home there is an increase in the chances of a gun accident. Suicide, shooting a family member during an argument and kids playing with guns actually increase the danger at home. NRA members say that we need guns to defend ourselves from the government. In a “Police State” the government keeps the people enslaved by first, taking away all the guns. They point to the USSR as an example. However, the police and US Army have vastly superior firepower and any defense of liberty by We The People is doomed to fail. Remember WACO and Ruby Ridge?

10. Police ought to stop murdering black men. Not only is it morally wrong to commit murder but it costs the taxpayers a lot of money. There is very little murder of white people by police but the culture of the police force seems to encourage murder of blacks. We ought to replace metal bullets with rubber bullets in all of our police forces. Rubber bullets do not kill people but they do cause a suspect to fall down and become easy to handcuff.

11. Remove corporate money from politics. Individual real people should be allowed to contribute to candidate’s election fund but artificial “people” like corporations should be prohibited. They are only used to allow rich people to exceed limits of how much money anyone can contribute. This leads to what is in effect bribery. Politicians do what they are paid to do… pass laws that benefit the rich at the expense of the middle class and poor. What we have now is one dollar one vote not one man one vote like the founding fathers wanted. PAC (political action committees) are another way to allow rich people to exceed limits.

12. Legalize Medicinal Psychedelics. Let Doctors and Patients decide what drugs are beneficial treatment. There is a body of medical research that says some illegal drugs help people with mental health problems. For Example: Termanilly Ill people who fear their own death could be given psychedelics to ease their fear. That would be compassionate… What is gained by prohibition? The patients are going to die anyway… We simply do not know enough about health benefits to make an informed decision about medicinal psychedelics. We ought to learn.

13. Make companies that sell addictive opioid drugs pay extra taxes to fund treatment for patients that want to quit using their drugs. They caused a problem and profited by it… they should pay to clean up the mess.

14. We ought to take action to defend our elections. The Russians interfered with our election in 2016 causing Trump to win. Without Wikileaks, Trump would have lost. We also should stop using the electoral college. Majority Rule is a better system. Twice we have had the loser in the Presidential Election serve as President. Both times were disasters.

15. Free birth control and abortion for all. No one should be forced to give birth to an unwanted child. Choice should be available to anyone including people who cannot afford it.

16. We ought to build a giant solar power desalinization plant in Southern California. It would use solar reflectors to boil seawater and create steam. That steam would be used to drive turbines and create electricity. When the water cools it condenses into pure H2O and salt. The water would be sold to people for drinking, washing and watering plants. The salt could be sold or returned to the ocean if there are not enough customers… Camp Pendleton near San Diego would be an ideal location. Southern California is in need of water. There is a current proposal to use pipelines to move fresh water from the Sacramento River to be used by farmers and residents in SoCal. An alternative would be to just get the water from the ocean… We should also stop watering lawns in California. It’s a cultural norm that is not practical in a state that is suffering drout. What if it became fashionable to have rock gardens or cactus? That’s what they do in Arizona…

17. Outlaw fracking. It causes drinking water pollution. The only people who benefit are the stockholders of oil companies. Water pollution causes health problems… real people get sick…

18. Outlaw ROUNDUP herbicide. It causes cancer. This chemical is widely used in the farming of California’s central valley. Non Hodgskins lymphoma is killing real people who work on the farms.

19. Close all Nuclear Power Plants. They create Atomic Waste that stays Radioactive for thousands of years. AND POISONOUS… The waste has to be stored safely and guarded to prevent terrorists from building a “Dirty Bomb” using the Depleted Uranium. Vast salaries will be spent on Armed Security Guards and warehouses.

Why NOT try majority rule? We already tried Corporate Rule and that didn’t work out too great.

Be aware that some “think tanks”, “talking heads” and “pundits” are owned by the super rich. They simply write reports that support conclusions favoring the wealthy. In science, people collect facts and draw conclusions from those facts… The alt-right draw the conclusions first and then make up “facts” to support those conclusions.

For Example: Breitbart  News is funded by the Mercer Family.

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.”
