It should be very clear to all living in The WORLD that the so-called Republican Party, in 2009 is not, nor has it ever been the “Party of Lincoln”. All, and I do mean all of the politician who carry the banner of the ELEPHANT beside their name are nothing more than reactionary opportunists, who practice guile…deceit…and wholesale class warfare against the citizens of our nation.
Political events and activities in this country prove this statement to be, at its core, True. Furthermore it has been true since the era of Nixon politics. In a way It has always been true but never more than the “let them eat cake” mentality that is characterized by such grandiose attempts at wealth re-distribution as ‘Supply Side Economics”, “anti-unionism, “ False Right to Life rhetoric while actually practicing every perversion know to modern man, and the old mantra “DE-REGULATION o keep Government off our backs. It is largely that latter preoccupation that is responsible for the current near Depression economic situation we face as Americans today.
Former president Reagan with his “supply Side economic plan really ushered in the “trickle-Down” mentality that has allowed the virtual economic rape and disenfranchisement of most of the citizens of this our society.
What do I mean? Its very simple. In its championing of a “Get all you can” attitude, the Republican party has subjected us all to a kind of “VOODOO ECONOMICS” that has robbed many citizens of their livelihood…………older Americans of their retirement……poor Americans of the right to gainful employment……..And all of us young and old, rich and poor, Black and White, of HOPE. in a brighter tomorrow.
All in the name of PROSPERITY for the FEW!
It is Republican economic policy that has led directly to an increase in unemployment not seen since the GREAT DEPRESSION. It is that same republican economic policy that led directly to the crimes and abuses of “Madoff”- Even against members of his own family! It is that same failed and totally flawed economic policy that allowed Treasury Secretary to lead the way to defrauding the American people out of almost a TRILLION DOLLARS…….with nothing more than “scare tactics” and no visible relief to the problem that money was supposed to fix.
It Truth and in fact that money, once bilked out of our children’s future well being has only been used to enrich the already burgeoning financial coffers of the ultra rich and powerful among us. Multi-million dollar private jet aircraft to be used exclusively by the so-called elite and bought with taxpayer money. Ever climbing health care costs that only the ultra rich can handle, are just 2 examples of this phenomenal turn of events That threatens to destroy us all.
I was told by some very wise economic sources in 1969 [some 40 year ago] that The economic situation in this country would finally come down to a war between the HAVES verses the HAVE NOTS in the battle for the 21st Century.
IT INDEED HAS!!!!
Further they said…..It may destroy the world as we know it, If something is not done to reverse the trends, that much was evident even then.
Indeed, the WORLD ECONOMIC CRISIS would seem to bear that out. Never ending wars that cost so much in Human Life and financial resources show even more what is happening in our world.
For me the meaning is clear. THERE IS AN EVIL FORCE AT WORK HERE! That evil force is GREED, AVARICE, ABUSE OF MONEY, and a total LACK OF LOVE or CARING for EACH US!
I believe all those problems and conditions have been identified before………..In The BIBLE!
WAKE UP EVERYBODY!
The so-Called Leaders of the Republican Party are meeting [in secret ] this weekend to chart its future in the wake of a crushing defeat at the polls during the last national election. It is noteworthy that that election also yielded a seemingly ready for action leader who is trying hard to steer us in a new and more positive direction. As everyday ordinary Americans in this mix……We have an awesome and individual responsibility! While THEY are meeting to plot OUR FUTURE……….Call Them…..Write Them…..and ASK THE QUESTION!
I lay the blame directly at the feet of Bush/Cheny. They have the typical Republican mentality that says...let big business make as much money as it can... anyway it can.......and the heck with everybody else. They had to see this coming. They just hoped they would be out of office before the bottom dropped out. They didn`t quite make it. Without a doubt, GW was the worst president in my lifetime. But, let me give him props for one thing. Because he was soooo bad at his job, the country decided to give the Black guy a shot at it. Obama sure has one hell of a mess to clean up. I wish him well.
By and large, Americans are STUPID......politically, and that transfers into allowing their own elected officials to run roughshod over us. Remember according to the constitution..........WE THE PEOPLE are the BOSS in this country. Lately, we the people have been giving up our responsibilty. These people need to reflect what we want and what is good for us the citizen. e have to stop allowing the tail to wag the Dog! NA'MEAN??????
I just hope that this gets better soon, because it's not making any sense at all, folks losing their jobs, people like me getting their hours cut...I lay the blame directly at Bush and it's mighty suspect that all of this went down toward the end of his run in the White House...It will take some time and he will make his share of mistakes, but i believe President Obama will try his very best to get this thing going in the right direction.
Fourteen civilians were killed late Monday when Islamic State group jihadists shelled a government-controlled neighbourhood of Syria's eastern Deir Ezzor city, a monitor said. Three children were among the dead in the regime-held Al-Joura district, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. "The shelling hit just before families were gathering to break the Ramadan fast," said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.
A shallow, 6.6-magnitude earthquake hit inland on the central Indonesian island of Sulawesi Monday, US seismologists said, causing people to panic but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. Muhammad Guntur, who lives on the outskirts of the town, said it was felt strongly. A hotel worker in Poso also said that people panicked when the quake struck but that things had returned to normal there.
President Donald Trump has released his first official statement on the attack in Portland, Oregon, more than 48 hours after the two victims died. "The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable," Mr Trump tweeted. Three days earlier, an Oregon man was accused of fatally stabbing two men and injuring one on a Portland commuter train.
Memorial day is supposed to be the day Americans come together to pay respect to the people who've died while serving the country—or, if you're Ivanka Trump, make popsicles. On Sunday, the Ivanka Trump brand posted a painfully tone deaf tweet just in time for the holiday.

(Commence: gentle teeheehees). Make champagne popsicles this #MemorialDay: https://t.co/1m6ceESqnS — Ivanka Trump HQ (@IvankaTrumpHQ) May 28, 2017 Of course, Memorial Day also doubles as the start of summer for many in the United States, so it's not exactly surprising—or wrong even—that the brand came up with a recipe. But c'mon, champagne popsicles? What exactly are you celebrating @IvankaTrumpHQ? @IvankaTrump #memorialday https://t.co/InGkqd8yH9 — VoteVets (@votevets) May 29, 2017 Presidents and their senior advisors are typically expected to post something not horrible on the day. And it felt particularly hypocritical for some that Ivanka, who is a champagne popsicle of a human, posted about drinking such an expensive beverage when her family is proposing massive social service cuts to low income families. Even Trump appears to have let a real adult craft his tweet today. Today we remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving. Thank you, God bless your families & God bless the USA! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2017 Is this the moment he became president? Since joining the White House, Ivanka Trump has chosen to put her company in a trust. Ivanka remains the sole beneficiary of the trust and continues to wield power over the brand. Lawmakers have expressed concern that, given the nature of the trust, it'll be difficult to enforce monitoring. Concerned about corruption? Oh well. Just grab some of your best girlfriends and champagne popsicle the pain away. WATCH: Take the party wherever you go with this portable beer pong table
