Like minded people! Yes please!

I don’t even talk politics anymore, unless I know for sure the people I’m speaking with are like- minded.  Every day it’s some new scandal, our country is going to hell in a hand basket on a rocket full of plutonium!

I am coming to a conclusion that I need and crave the company of like-minded people. Defending ones beliefs and opinions constantly is exhausting. Sure its good to have people who challenge you but I am kind of weary of the fear some have these days. It is really hard to be a progressive in […]

Hello, my name is Tessa, and I’m from Canada (not really, but I’m too ashamed to say I’m from the United States!)

That’s my new mantra for when I travel outside of the United States.  Our current dictator in chief, I mean president is bat shit crazy! After the recent terror attack in London, our butt wipe of a president, tweeted not once, but twice to deride the mayor of London.

I often wonder how this lunatic can wipe his own ass!  To anyone outside of the United States, please don’t think that all Americans are like Donald Trump.  We are not.  I know many people who voted for him, and they are good people.  He’s a carnival show barker and a superb con man. He, his supporters and fellow spineless politicians are setting out to destroy the country I love.

It seems Trump is hell bent on undoing everything that Barack Obama did. He’s such a petty little dweeb. “I’ll show everyone else in the world, that I only care about myself and whomever I can make money off of, the hell with the planet.”

Every flipping day it’s some new scandal.  It’s obvious that Russia interfered with our election.  Everyone on Trump’s cabinet is not even remotely qualified to head the agency they were appointed too.  It’s all a money grab, the hell with poor people, hungry children, old and sick people, I could go on for days.

Please, people of the United States, get involved.  Too many people sat out and didn’t vote in 2016.  Or they thought Donald Trump, being a business man would change things up.  He’s changed things alright, he’s setting out to destroy our democracy.  My husband keeps saying that things will work out. No one thought Trump would get elected, and he did. He’s hell bent on destroying the environment.  His party doesn’t give two shits about anyone except his hard core supporters and the 1%.  I never realized people were so uninformed.  It’s very sad.

People are getting murdered for standing up for others being harassed.  This is not what America is all about. When you have a bully, racist and piece of shit in the white house, you emboldened the true ugliness in people to come out.  Don’t get me wrong, the ugliness has always been there, but now people think since the president acts the way he does,  they can too.

We will prevail, I just hope we don’t go so far down the rabbit hole that we can’t get back out.

I hope like hell he gets impeached. Pence is no better, and Paul Ryan is worse. Good Americans need to come together and change our country for everyone, not just a select few.

Bernie Sanders breaks it down

I so wish Bernie Sanders would have won the presidential election of 2016.  We saw him in Sept. in Milwaukee.  I was amazed at the turn out, and how many young people were there.  He makes sense, and really breaks down Trump’s promises he made during the campaign.  A true American.

 

I wish I could make people sit down and listen to this. I am not sure if it would do any good, it seems you can’t reach people on the other side anymore.

Defining Trump-Does he threaten our democracy?

This is a great read.  Lots of good points.

By Jason Taylor The media and Trump are predictably strange bedfellows. Trump could not have been elected without the relentless and obsessive reportage the fifth estate has so generously given to him. That said, the extradition yesterday of politically corrupt Ukrainian billionaire Dmytro Firtash, who is complicit in the shadowy events of Trump’s campaign, will […]

And so it begins………….

The Washington Post reports that Trump knew “for weeks” that Flynn lied. President Trump was aware that his national security adviser Michael Flynn had misled White House officials and Vice President Pence for “weeks” before he was forced to resign on Monday night. Trump was briefed by White House Counsel Don McGahn that Flynn had […]
