Trying to Keep the Christmas Spirit

Trying to keep the Christmas spirit this year is mighty tough folks. 

The cowed Republicans in Congress are about to pass a massive tax cut bill masquerading as "tax reform) rewarding their rich donors.  

Make no mistake folks, this so called "tax reform" is really a tax cut as a payoff to their rich campaign donors.  Once this disgraceful tax bill is passed then Paul Ryan will realize his life long dream in destroying the social safety net of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. This is called "The Texas Two Step."  Put the government in a massive deficit then claim they have to cut so called "entitlement" programs to pay for those massive tax cuts to their rich donors.

Our monster president continues to embarrass us in the world by his immature behavior and recklessness in sending unqualified men for lifetime judicial appointments.

Now Trump and his jackals are trying to disgrace the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is closing in on him and his cohorts who colluded with Russia.  I'll say what is obvious, Trump has been funded for years by Russia through laundered money which is why he won't release his tax returns.  

Folks, for the first time in my life I wake up almost every day, sick to my stomach knowing that this wretched mass of flesh is occupying the White House and is enabled by so many spineless Republicans in Congress.

And don't tell me about the Senators John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Senator Bob Corker. They talk a big game but fall in line to vote the Trump agenda. Shame on them.  Especially voting for this tax bill that repeals the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act ("Obama Care") thus depriving millions of affordable insurance.  And especially disgusting is Florida Senator Marco Rubio ("Little Marco") who seriously thinks he is still going to run for president again.  Marco Rubio, who posses no spine. Marco Rubio, who always has his finger to the wind. Sickening.

I never in my life thought I would be ashamed to be an American but I have to tell you folks, today I am. I hope during my lifetime this travesty that is called the Trump Presidency is just a bad, bad memory. 

Shame on all those who support and enable this sexual predator, liar, and monster.  

As long as he is president our country is in great danger.

As the kids say: BOOM! Mic drop, Ron!

I don't disagree with anything you've written. We're in dark days. In spite of this, may we all have a warm holiday season (as best we can).

Greetings from SF,

Scary times Bea. I try to keep to a minimum these negative posts about the awful situation our country is in with Trump and his Republican enablers, who are not true patriots. But sometimes I just can't keep the bile from coming up in my throat and I have to vent. You have a wonderful holiday season too.

Ron, As a Canadian, I feel your pain and I fear for the fallout to my country as well, how on earth did this happen!! We can only hope that soon, some stronger heads will prevail and we'll see better days.

To me it is so obvious what a disaster Trump is and how dangerous his presidency is to our country and the world who depends on the United States for leadership. But what is really disheartening is those in this country who continue to support and enable him especially those in Congress who are only interested in their own selfish (money) agenda. Shame, shame, shame. They will go down in history as the true Quislings to our country's character and goodness that they would let a monster like Trump to continue servicing as president of our wonderful country.

Ron sweetie, must you put such large ugly photos of Herr Furor up? I know it makes a point but my first reaction whenever a blogger buddy puts up his photo I cringe. Perhaps a smaller photo or a Blogger warning hohoho
