JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!!!

How are those new manufacturing jobs coming along? I hear a few jobs escaped to Mexico after Trump negotiations which were not negotiations but photo ops.  How about the jobs that are manufacturing Ivanka Trump’s shoes, garments and accessories. It appears that the Trump family is providing more jobs in China than in the United States.  The Trumps have discovered the EB-5 Program which is centered around investment/green cards which encourages Chinese investments of $500,000. or $1,000,000. in a blighted area in the USA.  The Kushner Family in New Jersey have redrawn an ethnic boundary in Jersey City to satisfy the EB-5 requirements. The entire redrawn boundaries are lies and corrupt decisions by the Jersey City Government.

How is the building of those bridges that we classify as dangerous and outdated?  We could assume that repairing and replacing infrastructure will create many jobs but  these workers no longer use shovels and pick axes anymore.  Infrastructure work is no longer labor intensive but it requires skilled machine operators, cement workers, asphalt workers, crane operators, welders, etc. jobs, jobs,jobs.  The Trump program will not work without allowing skill labor to emigrate to the United States.  Welders are in short supply and fully employed today.  This campaign promise was made more than once, how is that going for Trump voters.  No jobs yet but racism binds them to Trump even as they die of Black Lung Disease.

Hey coal miners,  how is your job search for mining working?  I guess you are tired of succeeding by now and being surrounded by opulence.  The main impediment is automation which has diminished the number of jobs significantly.  This is not creating jobs; it is duping the very people who voted for Trump, Stein and Johnson.  The third party candidates helped elect Trump and they are getting zero plus losing their health care for their effort.  The manufacturing sector is not experiencing the deluge of new well paying jobs as promised during the Trump clown parade; NAFTA is still in place so how is that going for you, Trump voter.  Trump is so angry with Germany that he is going to prevent them from selling cars in the U. S.  Little does this knucklehead know that the Germans are manufacturing cars in South Carolina to be sold in the United States without tariffs.  BMW in South Carolina, provides 8,000 jobs and these jobs were there before Trump scammed himself into office.  This was meant to be a slight to Angela Merkel during his “mad bull” tirade after the NATO conference.

How about those jobs relating to the budget cutting conducted with a sledge hammer and a chain saw.  There will be many jobs lost at the local level including areas that voted for Donald Trump such as drivers for the “Meal on Wheels” Program.  People will lose jobs servicing rural hospitals, farms, community colleges.  How about those thousands of jobs building the wall along the Mexican Border; how is that feeding your family these days?  Trump voters must have such a wonderful feeling of fulfillment since their president is singlehandedly solving all of their problems but he will not be able to hold back the tsunami of negative public opinion when his policies fall flat as they have so far.

Trump is busy and personally trying to erase his predecessor’s accomplishments rather than moving forward.  Remember his primary goal is to undo the accomplishments of President Barack Obama who was illegitimate to Donald Trump.  His hatred of Obama and all Black people other than Mike Tyson and Don King is readily apparent.  Heres to you Donald our hate and dislike is mutual and that is one Black man’s opinion.  DONALD TRUMP WILL NEVER BE MY PRESIDENT.

WHAT’S WITH TRUMP AND THE RUSSIANS???

The Russians are not coming, they are already here and infecting our government including the congress of the United States.  In spite of the intelligence community position that the Russians are guilty of hacking  into and influencing the presidential election of 2016.  All signs, for me, indicate that smoke is followed by combustion.  I have been disturbed by public testimony before congressional committees who are abdicating their responsibility to be a check and balance to the executive branch.  Instead they are operating with under staffing and refusing to issue subpoenas for records, tapes and documents required to follow the trail of evidence where ever it leads.  It is clear that the Republicans are not interested in the truth or governing America;  just Trumps 38% who are so brainwashed by hate that they can’t respect the rights of their fellow Americans.  By the way, they did not receive 10 million votes that went to Hillary, Stein and Johnson.  Remember, the large majority of voters (not Electoral College) voted for someone other than Trump yet he is attempting to govern 38% of the population to the detriment of 62% who did not vote for him.  I think the Democrats should keep the pedal to the floor regarding the Russian hacking.  Why were so many people around Trump before and after his inauguration, meeting with the Russians?  Kisliak is surely the main artery for FSB Intelligence in the United States.  Why were these Russians in the Oval office smiling and grinning with Trump in the absence of the American Press Corp.  I hope they did a security sweep after the Russians left.  Even if the Russians were exonerated, it would not help the Trump surrogates.  Their crime will be Obstruction of Justice; their coverup, amnesia and failure to note their meeting with Russian oligarchs, diplomats and bankers from Sberbank, A Russian Bank.  Remember all money flows back to Vladimir Putin including banking operations.  Why the cascade of lies including Jeff Sessions, Jared Kushner, Roger Stone , Paul Manafort, Mike Pence and James Flynn.

Congressional committees and special prosecutor Muller have an exponential knowledge of classified material.  The public deserves to know the classified material because it is worse than the public knows.  The money trail will yield the irrefutable evidence of how Trump officials were receiving illegal payments from Turkey and Russians.  Trump’s taxes would yield a treasure trove of information re Donald Trump and the Russian money.  Tax reform should not happen until Trump reveals his tax forms for the past 10 years and if that revelation indicates that Trump has no monetary relationship with the Russians, you will not hear another word from this blog.No tax reform because we will have no idea how Trump is benefiting himself and his friends of late, because he was elected by poor gullible people who do not realize that that Trump has staffed his cabinet with millionaires, billionaires and generals.

He proclaimed his first 100 days as the most successful of any past president.  What has he completed since 20 January 17; he is stuck on his Muslim ban from the first day of his occupying the Oval Office.  Trump’s stint has been a horror show followed closely by Independent Prosecutor Muller.  We can go to sleep knowing that Mr. Muller will tell us the bitter truth.  No need to pre-occupy yourself about what the truth is; it is on the way.  We will need to be patient for 18 months, which is my prayer.

SUFFICE IT TO SAY TRUMP IS NOT MY PRESIDENT AND NEVER WILL BE!!!

TRUMP CLASSLESS AND CLUELESS!!!

I never imagined that any American president would be so boorish and classless on the world stage as Donald Trump.  The fake president was so smug and condescending in Saudi Arabia and he never uttered the word “human rights” even once; this is a man who chided Democrats for not using the term “Islamic Radicalism” which was his campaign blabber which the dumb ass crackers just loved.  White women who support Donald Trump were strikingly silent about the social status of Saudi women, of course the world would be asking too much by protesting the status of the foreign workers building Saudi Arabia’s towers and palaces; these workers are working under deplorable and dangerous conditions.  Saudis do not indulge in manual labor, that is for brown and Black people.  Trump was met with a cabal of men in white dresses while his wife trailed dutifully behind the king of the USA in the company of the Saudi king.  The real purpose of the butt kissing trip was the sale of 100+ billion  dollars of military hardware to kill more Yemenis.  The major beneficiaries are the stockholders of these defense industries.  The U. S. under Trump is open to selling death.  The jaunt to Saudi Arabia was followed by a trip to Israel where Trump has promised to move the American Embassy; do you notice that this hasn’t happened?  Trump says that peace in the Middle East will be easy; piece of cake.  That is the revealing evidence that Trump is politically ignorant.  The note that he left at the prayer wall is an indication of his vast ignorance and his simplistic vocabulary.  We are burdened by a stupid non centered president and a pseudo-Christian avowed racist, misogynistic and Islamophobic; Pence is Lucifer with white hair and no better bargain than Trump..

His subsequent destination was Brussels where the new NATO Headquarters were being unveiled with a portion of the Berlin Wall and a steel column from the World Trade Center which triggered the first use of Article 5 of the NATO regulations.  No mention of mutual defense; instead the NATO ministers were chided and scolded for not paying into the NATO coffers.  Each member is expected to spend 2% of its GDP to upgrade each member’s military;  this is not membership dues.  Now where would the money be spent ?  The USA defense industries will benefit from every dime spent by the NATO countries therefore the trip to the Mideast was about selling arms to NATO countries and the Saudis.  The trip resulted in arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Israel and 28 NATO counties promising to utilize American manufacturing of defense arms.

We watched this orange clown push past the President of Montenegro in front of the world, what an imbecile and ugly American cracker. The sight of the Trump riding a golf cart while everyone else was walking; his anger and disdain was visible and palpable.  The American King was busy making enemies last week.  The brain dead Republicans lauded the Trump trip abroad as spectacularly 100% successful; I have no idea what planet they are on.  The Trump surrogates check their brain and heart at the white House security gates to be retrieved on their way home at the end of the day.  I feel that the Trump trip to Europe, Israel and the Mideast was a shaming disaster.  But…he is not my president and never will be.

JAMES COMEY

The time has come to examine some aspects of Mr. Comey’s tenure and what firing him was meant to accomplish.  James Comey was leading the FBI investigation of the U. S. elections and the subversive Russian hacking.  We are being flooded daily by new revelations of meetings with Russian operatives by Trump insiders who probably are spy plants here in the U. S.  The president has been trying to influence the investigations of the Russian’s interference and that is on going.  The Republican congress has been loathe to staff up the intelligence committees, hold hearings or subpoena documents; they would prefer that this would disappear so they they can continue their malicious legislating.  They have taken the unprecedented tact of not subpoenaing the tax returns of this president after scurrilously pressing President Obama for his damned birth certificate for years .  These crackers are much of the worse that America has to offer.  Do not expect anything honest from Paul Ryan (R-WI) or Mitch McConnell (R-KY) because party comes before America to them, they look to remain in power by any means possible even if it involves lying through their teeth; no lie is too big or too embarrassing.  Donald Trump is the moral Republican leader who fired James Comey because of his handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail server and we all known that that is bulls**t.  This is a bigger lie by any reckoning since we heard the chant of “lock her up”.  Speaking of “lock her up”, it is time to prepare James Flynn’s cell lock up.  The General Flynn stated that anyone who hides behind the  Fifth Amendment is shielding guilt; the Republican mob howled with glee when he made this statement.  Fast forward to the fact that Flynn requested immunity from prosecution followed by Fifth Amendment cover.  What is the general hiding?  His stance will surely spark a “Follow the Money” philosophy.  Money always leaves a trail.  Especially sums of money in excess of $10,000. due to Treasury regulations.  The fact is, American Banks would not lend money to Donald Trump, driving him into the waiting arms of the Deutche Bank maybe Sberbank or the Russian Oligarchs who all exist at the pleasure of the President/hockey superman Vladimir Putin who can do nothing wrong in the eyes of Donal Trump.  Where was the venue for Putin’s blow job where he ingratiated himself.  The Trump son-in-law states that there is a ready supply of money from Russia.  Remember that money from the devil requires devilish deeds as payback.

This debacle will come to a clean logical conclusion with Donald Trump boarding a helicopter on the South Lawn for his trip back to ostracization here in his hometown where we hate his guts even where he was a Pseodo-Democrat and a peripheral player.  He will be exposed as the fraud that he really is.  Americans must rid the country of this psychedelic clown before he destroys his constituency who voted for him with hope that finally they were going to rule the day.

TRUMP IS NOT MY PRESIDENT AND WILL NEVER BE.

FEDERAL BUDGET BY AMATEURS!!!

Americans have been advised of the new Federal Budget which comes on the heels of the failure to repeal the Obama Care bill compounding the misery of many Trump voters.  The health care proposal comes down hard on the young, the poor people of color and the elderly who largely depend on Medicaid including Meal On Wheels.  All Republicans were once young and energized and in college looking forward to the day when their ship arrived; the ship arrived but these racist rednecks forgot the ordeal of their journey and frequent shipwrecks.  These same rednecks forgot where they came from and elevated themselves above their neighbors and fellow church goers.  They to a man call themselves “Born Again” but their souls are dead.  Try never born.

Many of the Republican legislators and politicians came from modest and poor backgrounds came from families who were one missed paycheck from abject poverty but to a man or woman; they were saved by one government program or another.  The Republican misnomer is that the poor are predominately Black and criminal; their entrenched racism blocks the fact that their actions hurt more white people than Blacks, many white families in the United States would not be eating if it was not for Food Stamps.  Why would a Christian begrudge giving food to his or her fellow human beings rather than the dog, cat or dumpster.  One only need to look at the logic of human compassion and spiritual teachings irrespective of religion.  Cutting food stamps is mean and irresponsible but it does not only affect Blacks who did not vote for Trump; his core of disaffected cracker supporters haven’t felt the noose yet.

I assume most people will live or aspire to be elderly and will need more intense medical services including Geriatric Services.  The lucky ones will end up in a hospice, nursing home or at home with a home health care provider.  The mean and vicious Trump budget will end payments to nursing homes driving the majority of the country or rural facilities completely out of business leaving barren resources;  this whole notion is completely ridiculous and inhumane.  How could any public official, human being or sinister rascal propose eliminating Meals On Wheels which are meant for home bound elderly who don’t or can’t cook meals for themselves.  What have we come to?  Why has the American electorate allowed themselves to be duped into thinking that not being Black is enough to float their boat.  To watch the Republican congressmen and congresswomen stand on the East Lawn of the White House and celebrate the misery thrust on their fellow Americans; in actuality this is a celebration of their hate of Barack Obama since the color of his skin helped elect Donald Trump.

And then there are Blacks who are targeted since Trump will  never be Black so there is no moderating of the Black condition in America.  We have a president who believes that we are all staring down a barrel of a gun or a vial of cocaine.  We are the only group characterized as drug users.  Be advised that Trump has never, I repeat never retained the services of a Black owned law firm, Architectural firm or engineering firm.  At least no Black firms was stiffed  by Trumps “no payment scheme”.  What do Blacks have to lose by supporting Donald Trump?  First you will have sold your soul to an orange hair orangutan who would destroy you and rejoice with his cabal of Republican haters.  They would see the elimination of Black people as making America great again.  We must gird ourselves until the criminal investigation runs its course and believe me the truth will prevail.

I am firmly determined to be patient until the end for Roger Stone, Paul Manefort, General James Flynn, Jared Kushner, Sean Spicer, Sarah Hucklebee, Ivanka Trump et el are vanquished.

Trump is not my president and will never be.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING: TRUMP

NATO is no longer obsolete after Donald Trump first declared it obsolete before changing his opinion .  NATO has not taken any corrective action except to have lightweight Trump talk to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg face to face.  It was Politics 101.  “I said it was obsolete”  Trump said. “It’s no longer obsolete.  He really thinks he is king Trump without an imperial court or queen.

The Republicans are at it again by being Republicans first and Americans second.  They prattle on and on about national security as it relates to any country except Russia or Vladimir Putin.  The House Intelligence Committee is reportedly not spending much time on the Russian Hacking or election interference with no full time workers on the case.  The Republicans will sweep the Russian Influence Investigation under a rug found large enough.  These same House Representatives refuse to subpoena the presidents tax returns.  They see this as too invasive but the Black guy had to produce his birth certificate  before the protests ended.  That protest was led by Donald Trump who has something very damaging in his tax returns.  He gets an “F” grade for lack of transparency due to his withholding his tax returns.  The audit is a lie & excuse!!!

How disingenuous can Trump be to talk about revising the tax code when we have no idea whether his proposals are benefiting him and other billionaires. Congress should not hold a vote or consider this bill until Trump shows his entire history of tax filings including those long past audit; this is just a smokescreen.  The only consolation we have is the fact that the FBI is continuing its investigation; Director Jim Comey will not be able to hide the sky with his hands and pretend the Trump/Russian never occurred.  Trump will not survive the Russian investigation after General Flynn gets squeezed; you only need one domino to fall before cascading dominoes fall.

We must be diligent here in the U. S., not because of national security but we must battle this Republican onslaught with all of our might into the centuries ahead of us.  This administration is careening toward its 100th day in power without anything to show except court embattled executive orders, travel bans, the repealing of every Obama executive order in sight and failure to repeal the ACA.  They have lost in the courts during the first 100 days which according to Trump we should be sick and tired of winning so much.  Well, we see how that is going!!  It apparently does not take much to make America great again as Trump emotes.  He is a nincompoop who thinks the presidency is not subject to checks and balances by the legislature and the Judiciary.  His greatest failure is to prolong a nasty fight with the fourth estate albeit the press.

The tax structure has not been mentioned for the typical Trump voter;  our memory is so short that the Republicans have forgotten that unfunded tax cuts for the rich was partially the reason we are emerging from a deep recession.  The republicans presented one sheet of paper that did not contain plans for revising the thousands of provisions of the Tax Code.  If the effort is to abolish many of the provisions valued by Trump voters and others is the mortgage interest and the deductibility of state and local taxes.  If loop holes are not closed, the same corporations paying zero will continue paying zilch for federal taxes under the new proposal.  The people who voted for trump will be paying more taxes than they do now. The farmers who voted for Trump are now beginning to realize that we need a guest worker program because their crops are taken in by immigrants under harsh conditions which most Americans will avoid. Failure to address the harvest could likely result in higher food prices and I mean level where only the upper middle class can afford.  This class of people did not vote for Donald Trump but his policies will help them but not his constituency in Appalachia.  We will soon face reality.

Trump’s 100th day will occur on Saturday the 29th day of April.  Go to the Penn Relays and be happy.

DONALD TRUMP WILL NEVER BE MY PRESIDENT!!!

THE DEPLORABLE IDIOTS!!!

We are treated to the disgusting specter of Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer who inspires even the most jaded to watch his silly and incomprehensible statements in defense of his boss’ foibles thus magnifying the collective stupidity and ineptness.  he thinks Adolph Hitler was not as cruel as Assad because Hitler did not use chemical agents on his own people.  He is apparently unaware that there were Jews native to Germany and Austria.  He said” instead Hitler brought the Jews into holocaust centers; how civilized?

Donald Trump flip flopped by his actions in Syria since he publicly said ” What I am saying is stay out of Syria and this was his advice to President Obama.  This is just one of his flip flops since he stated that NATO is obsolete and out of step in these troubled times; he stated this idiocy more than once only to eat his words after meeting with the Secretary-General of NATO who apparently deprogrammed a president who has no moral compass.  He had railed against China being a currency manipulator but all was forgiven and forgotten after sitting for dinner with Xi Jinping at his Mar-Largo Club.  They are no longer currency manipulators.  This is just a smoke screen since many of his products are made in China, Mexico and other countries.  So I guess he wants the Chinese to buy American because he is not a generator of American products going to China from the U. S.  He is a f..king hypocrite of the worst kind since he is saying one thing and violating that public stance.

In keeping with his flip flopping, he changed his mind about Janet Yellin as the chair of the Federal Reserve Bank after disparaging her earlier.  He also flip flopped on North Korea after a lesson from Xi Jinping about the history of Korea and China; information in the State Department which was readily available to him.  He changes his stupid mind based on the last person that he talked to.  He truly did not understand that North Korea is not a puppet and therefore not easy to control by anybody.  We have a clown driving the clown car with a Learner’s Permit. He has no clue to what he is doing or what he is responsible for.

The Senate confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court after employing the “nuclear option” which requires a majority vote rather than a 60 vote threshold.  This will surely backfire on Republicans if Democrats assume control of the Senate in the future.  Most Democrats strongly opposed Gorsuch out of fear of holding on to their seats like Joe Manchin (D-WV).  In a little publicized action, Trump ended the Bar Association’s role of evaluating judges for the Federal Court system giving Trump free reign to stuff the court with unqualified and un-vetted judges

As Trump stumbles around looking for a cause, his travel bans will cost America 7.0 to 8.0 Billion in revenues which will cause loss of jobs in the hospitality industry; that will represent job losses by a president who is going to create so many jobs until we will be awash in jobs, while claiming he has already created 600,000 jobs; a number pulled out of his ass.  I guess global warming is still a hoax perpetuated by China.  The United Sates is “being run by an idiot” according to ISIS and I wholeheartedly agree as much as it pains me to agree with a horde of assh..les.

DONALD TRUMP IS A DISASTER YET HE IS NOT MY PRESIDENT AND NEVER WILL BE!!!

TRUMP’S FLIM FLAM CABAL!!!

The Trump Administration is clearly indulging in three card Monte because they are creating diversions daily.  He accused President Obama of wiretapping his telephones at Trump Towers on Fifth Avenue; a charge that was debunked by the FBI and intelligence agencies.  Ironically this knucklehead Trump does not have the balls to say I was wrong, instead he tried to play with semantics by saying he was indeed the victim of surveillance rather than wiretapping which is a radical departure.  It is becoming clearer that something occurred between the Russians and the Trump campaign; why were campaign officials maintaining contact with representatives of the Russian Government?  Why was a United States General Michael Flynn cozy with the Russians?  You can be assured that he knows enough to sink Trump’s boat.  Congress is still not willing to subpoena the IRS for Trump’s tax return; it is a blatant lie that all of his filings are under audit simultaneously forever.  The man who masquerades as president is stonewalling the American public.  How could he justify putting Steve Bannon on the National Security Council; a man pledged to “deconstruct the American bureaucracy” and those are his words?  The Trump strategy is to bait and switch by raising one blockbuster ruse after another to divert our attention from his treasonous association with Russia.

A new Supreme Court justice was confirmed thanks to Democrats like Joe Manchin (D-WV) who often votes Republican. With Joe Manchin as a friend, you don’t need enemies and that is more than I can say for Devin Nunes (R-CA) who sucked up to Trump prompting a chorus of jeers for his complicity and subsequent recusal from any house committee investigation of Trump’s relationship with the Russian Government.

Assad (Syrian) Government apparently dropped bombs on their brothers, sisters and children which was televised as children lay writhing for the world to see.  As a result the United States, after warning the Russians who warned the Syrian military put on a fireworks display by firing 59 Tomahawk missiles that did little damage to the targeted airfield runways.  Allegedly planes were using the runways to takeoff and bomb their citizens repeatedly after the fireworks display.

The White House has virtually isolated some of their own challenged supporters by appearing to govern by executive orders in the face of a draconian budget which I assume is meant to punish everyone who voted against Donald Trump;  apparently none of his voters needs pap smears, breast exams, AIDS testing, examination for uterine or cervical cancer or STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).  If you notice I did not mention  birth control or abortion.  This kind of stance places doctors who perform abortions in mortal danger by the anti-abortion fanatics; they love and treasure their guns and violence but I have never heard a ground swell for adopting the children to lessen abortion, instead the Republicans elect to follow fat Donald into infamy.

DONALD TRUMP IS NOT MY PRESIDENT AND NEVER WILL BE!!!

THE FABRIC OF TRUMP LIES IS UNRAVELING!!!

Day by day the noose is tightening around the Trump campaign and pseudo-presidency regarding the Russian hacking during the 2016 elections .  Slowly the notion that the White House rookies are striking out daily and they are subverting the root function of the White House which is governance.  The Trump presidency is still unable to accept the fact that they won the election no matter how tainted.  We do not know the extent of the taint but we do know that Representative Nunes (R-CA) is literally doing the White House’s bidding.  Everybody in the Trump cabal is under scrutiny and more and more of their scurrilous activities will surface.  General Michael Flynn was fired because of his tendency to lie with a straight face when a lie is not necessary.  Of course the Trump Campaign has to explain its numerous interfaces with the Putin government.  I am convinced that the intelligence agencies could tell these liars just what they said in various meetings and trysts.  There is a fire that will rear its destructive head soon this Russian-Trump love affair will come out of the dark soon and everybody’s doubts will be put to rest.  General Flynn, in one of his flippant campaign stops in 2016, said “anyone who request immunity from prosecution has something in his or her testimony that could lead to a criminal prosecution.  Flynn’s lawyer alleges that General Flynn has a story to tell.  The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating the Trump-Russia relationship together with the FBI, NSA, CIA, and all intelligence agencies. Donald Trump is being aided by representatives refusing to subpoena Donald Trump’s tax records which are in perpetual audit @ IRS.  Every intelligent American knows that trump’s failure to release his tax records is bulls…t

Donald Trump has a huge black cloud hanging over his head with an overture of gross incompetence.  Why would he be allowed to choose a Supreme Court Justice after the Republican refusal to grant an audience to Judge Merrick Garland.  At the same time Donald Trump is trying to push Judge Gorsuch onto the Supreme Court.  The lines of resistance are forming in the halls of congress.  Republicans are being promised a filibuster of this judicial nomination.  Republicans will call for a cloture vote and threaten the nuclear option which is drastic.  There is a clear reluctance in the house to move against Donald Trump but believe me somebody is going to get to the bottom of this brewing scandal.

Meanwhile the administration is rolling back every Obama executive order; the promised next step is tax reform which is just as complicated.  Tax cuts landed this bus in the ditch before.  How do you pay for wealthy tax cuts since that would greatly reduce the revenues, where is the money coming from, the money will come out of the hide of the gullible Trump voter.  The Trump coterie includes a bunch of wall street regulars and military elite officers.  Trump has no experience governing which is different from managing a corporation that is not a public corporation.

The Trump/Russian relationship is known to the Intelligence Community and it will be revealed soon for all Americans to judge for themselves.  Donald Trump is dastardly, dishonest limp brain peckerwood from Queens who golfs more than President Obama.

WTF HE IS NOT MY PRESIDENT AND NEVER WILL BE!!!

REPEAL & REPLACE!!!

The Affordable Care Act has been given a new lease on life; if you listen to any politician who has an R in front of his name will loudly proclaim that Obamacare is in the process of imploding and failing.  They will all report the same tired lie in lockstep, over and over again.  The new Republican plan has not taken shape despite fifty plus votes to repeal Obamacare.  They were counting on the racial animus against President Obama and anything that President Obama stood for.  The Republicans had 7 years to fashion a new health plan but repeal was as deep as their puny minds could think.  The Democrats did not have to lift a finger because the opponents fought one another and Democrats were not wooed.  How could any sane politician vote for a bill  that drops 24-30 million Americans off of health care and instead politicians touted a plan without care for women’s health, lessens Medicaid coverage, does not cover mental health services, does not cover preventative care, sets up health savings accounts with tax credits.  Remember you have to spend the money to get a tax credit.  The parties do not have the guts to deal with doctors’ compensation; in Scandinavia a doctor’s pay is similar to that of a teacher.  These doctors are rich Millionaires and the pharmaceutical companies are not jacking the price of drugs and medications.  One of the main drivers of medical expenses is doctor’s compensation in the United States.  The second driver is the insurance company stockholders and as long as their pursuit of corporate profits is the main goal, medical costs will continue to increase.  All you can accomplish with the present health care debacle, is to slow the rate of growth.  People are living longer and needing care longer.  The choices are simple.  Single payer without private insurance companies with the U. S. Government being the single payer.  The other choice is to put everyone out in the market like automobile insurance where you choose the insurance carrier who closely fits your economic status without government participation just like automobile insurance.  There are many concepts between these two extremes where you get ideas of tax credits, subsidy and Health Savings Accounts.  Americans are wary of anyone taking away their health care no matter that the law occurred under the Obama Administration.  It is working for many Americans as indicated by the fervor expressed in town hall meeting after town hall meetings.  The Republican bill also provided for tax cuts for middle and upper (1%) category; This will have the net effect of increasing the deficit which is detested by the Freedom Caucus The American Health Care will blow a hole in our economy, especially when coupled with massive tax cuts.  Therefore, we have a money shortfall and a trillion dollar infrastructure program which will provide jobs but there will not be any low pay-low skill jobs.  For the most part infrastructure bills will put many machine operators to work and there will be very few shovels or flags for unskilled workers.  Remember union workers will benefit most as welders, steelworkers, crane operators, oilers and cement workers.  This is not building the railroads across the West or bridges, these are highly skilled jobs and high paying jobs which will do nothing to create jobs.  I am sure the infrastructure program will cause a job shift and fewer new jobs.  This country needs hundreds of new welders, where do they come from?

Let’s watch the Tax Code Revision in which loopholes are provided for wealthy taxpayers and corporations.  Let us see whether a flat tax for corporations is proposed as a lower tax obligation.  If the loopholes remain we will chaos.  Stay tuned and ignore Trump tweets.

HE IS NOT MY PRESIDENT!!!
