You’ve Been Trumped, America 

​I’m still in a,kind of state of “Are you people fucking kidding me?” with the #Trump thing. 
I don’t know how going from the smartest president in my lifetime to the dumbest is progress….but, OK. 

Yeah. He’s a good business man. Except that he isn’t. And, like all good capitalists, folks like you aren’t even on his radar. He’s NEVER been poor or even walked the streets writer us peasants walk. His idea of good business is that he gets it all,fuck everybody else. Is that what you mean by “good businessman”?
You’re going to want Obama back. …or, at the very least, regret the stupidity it took to think he’d serve the people . The rich are REALLY going to get richer now. The rest of us will keep getting further and further away from the American dream and closet and closet to a third world nightmare

I had more. But,I accidentally pressed back. I’ll be posting a lot starting today …through the next 4 years.  I don’t think you’ll read anything deserved of a pulitzer…I barely use proper punctuation.

But, I think that’s OK. We’re app going to need places to go,to read,to share ideas. As far as I’m concerned,  I just have to type things out sometimes. It’s therapy.

I’m just saying…I think I’m gonna need a lot of therapy these next 4 years. Stay tuned. You might get to see me lose my mind completely. 

2016 the year that broke democracy. 2017, the year of vigilance begins

​I’m still in a,kind of state of “Are you people fucking kidding me?” with the Trump thing. 
I don’t know how going from the smartest president in my lifetime to the dumbest is progress….but, OK. 

Yeah. He’s a good business man. Except that he isn’t. And like all good capitalists, folks like you aren’t even on his radar. He’s NEVER been poor or even walked the streets that us peasants walk. His idea of good business is that he gets it all,fuck everybody else. Is that what you mean by “good businessman”? He’s good for big business. You’ll be buying their shit….if you can afford it. That’s as close as financial relationship will be going on between Trump, his business chorts, and yourself
You’re going to want Obama back. …or, at the very least, regret the stupidity it took to think Trump intended to serve the people . The rich are REALLY going to get richer now. The rest of us will be pushed  further and further away from the American dream and closer and closer to a third world nightmare

All Americans cannot sit still while Putin wreaks havoc on the Western world. If we stay silent, fail to defend it,the end result will be beyond your worst horrible imagination scenario.

These are wild beats looking for a weakness…the right moment to strike.  This isn’t some paranoid delusion.  This is what the communist countries have dreamt of…the fall of the United States.

They can’t beat us militarily. It would make no sense to go to a hot war, for any side. But, now they’re are new technologies .And with them, we’ve discovered new vulnerabilities. Our enemies could shut us down today,right now. Our grid is vulnerable….because of these global technologies.(like internet,WiFi, poor security due) to poorly written code.

I don’t see Trump being the right guy for the job. In fact,he seems so completely unsuited,it would be like me, a 57 year old with arthritis ,being chosen as the new New York Yankees shortstop. 

I can say “I’m the greatest ball player. No one plays ball like me.” You’d laugh and send me off to the old folks home to WATCH the Yankees. So Trump says, “I’ll make a great president….Nobody knows the issues like I do”, that’s what should have happened. BECAUSE IT’S THE SAME FUCKING THING.

Fear gets you Nowhere

I’ve read a lot of defeatist as we face 4 years of President Trump.

It’ll be ok.

Fight harder.  Get out to vote in 2018. No more staying home.

I don’t care that Hillary lost. Die was a terrible candidate and human being.  It’s unfortunate that the only alternative, or perceived alternative,  was Mr. Trump.

I doubt blame the Russians for ruining a shit candidate.  But,it’s over now.  No point in retreating. Sms definitely no time for retreating.

Trump will make the left stronger.  Watch.

No 3rd Parties: Locked out

Once again,  #JillStein and the #Greenparty have failed #Nevada voters. They, she,  won’t be on the ballot this election…. Or, the foreseeable future. 

I spent many hours trying to contact the party. When I finally got a reply, only about 2 months ago, I told them that their focus should be on getting on the ballot. (Is been saying it for years) It didn’t take a genius to figure it out. If you’re not on the ballot, no one can vote for you.

There’s another issue here…Besides the incompetence of the Green party. For the first time in my life ,I don’t have a presidential candidate to vote for. The choice has been taken away from us Nevada #voters. How is it a #democracy if you don’t have a choice? 

After the debacle that was the #Democrat convention in #LasVegas, in which false reports of violence there (there was none), some of us have a reality bad taste in our mouths. We saw our convention taken over by Hillary Clinton stooges, making a mockery of the process in the process. 

In my case, I found my registration has been changed to Republican. But, I’d never voted Republican in my life. Who changed it? 

The truth is, I wasn’t  interested in Jill Stein. I’m just not a Clinton supporter.( That’s a whole other opinion piece) I switched away from the Green party in favor of Bernie Sanders. Although I wasnt blindly supporting him, knowing he was a true D.C. insider, I felt he was more progressive than the alternative, the right wing warhawk, Hillary Clinton. 

When I first got to vote as an adult, I really got excited. Some kids were excited to be able to legally drink alcohol. I was excited to vote. My first vote was Mayoral, New York city. I think Dinkins was Mayor. It might have been before that. 

I decided to educate myself on  issues and try to make smart votes. The fact that none of my preferences won wasnt an issue. At least I got the opportunity to vote for people like Nader and David Cobb. I also voted for Jessie Jackson, in Texas. There was a choice to be made. And that was exciting. 

I voted for Obama in his first attempt. I regretted that once the Clinton state department started the  drone program. Somewhere in his presidency, I had a moment of enlightenment. I realized that Id left the Democrats because of the policies of Bill Clinton initially. That there was good reason to leave the party. They’d become Republicans under Clinton. And now, Obama was selling out many of the same ideals and principles. I was no longer a Democrat. Because they aren’t what they said they were. 

Add to that, I figured Obama would try to help black people. I thought he’d be more of an activist for human rights. I thought he’d be a peace president. But, he didn’t do those things. He became just another president, a tool of the military. It was clear he didn’t represent my values. I wanted it to work. I really did. 

The important thing was, I still had an out. 

Last election cycle, Jill Stein was running. She wasn’t on the ballot. So, everyone, including myself, made that the number 1 issue that she had to address. There was plenty of time. It was clearly the biggest obstacles but, it was doable. 

 So, all they had to do was get people out in front of grocery stores, malls, etc. and get those signatures. It didn’t really matter if those people intended to vote for Jill. The idea was to just get her on the ballot. ( or ANY 3rd party) They had 6 years, really 8,to get it together.They didn’t .

So ,yes,the entrenched parties made it difficult. But, they didn’t make it impossible. Footwork was key. 

Now, I’m sitting here realizing, for the 1st time ever, I’m not part of it. I won’t vote for Trump or Clinton. I just can’t. That leaves me with Gary Johnson, a character I hardly believe in. The question becomes, is this a democracy? Because in a real democracy, there are choices. Canada has many parties. Most Western countries do. The United States doesn’t. I’m left with nothing. And I think that was by design. 

Its depressing. It makes me angry. I’m angry at the Green party. I’m angry at a system that locks out independents. In a country that declared its indepence from tyranny and declared itself a democracy, this shouldn’t stand. 

I don’t know what Nevada independents will do. I’m seeing, on Twitter, that most don’t realize that they aren’t going to get to vote for Stein. Even independents are ill-informed, lazy, and incapable of researching and looking up facts. It’s very discouraging. 

In my opinion, the only thing that can save us is to dump the Republicans and Democrats. Instead, they’ve dumped me and thousands of other voters. We have nowhere to go. How in the fuck is that democracy? 
 

Bernie Sanders is the ONLY SANE CHOICE

I started off this election cycle thinking my choices would be easy. None of the Republicans looked good. I knew I didn’t want another Bush. And, frankly, I don’t want another Clinton either.

There are many reasons to dislike birth frontrunners. Clinton has a warhawk history. She’s a dangerous woman who seems to have a need to over compensate for being female. It’s the old “I can be tough, or tougher than the boys”. Her domestic policy is equally out of touch. The Clintons pursued the Whitehouse by aping Reagan policy. In some cases, like NAFTA,  that made things worse for the American worker.
Clinton apologizes often. But, it didn’t bring back the dead. And it didn’t bring back jobs.
It sent them to outsourcing obliteration. We attention getting those jobs back. What’s their answer? You’ll need to retrain for the new economy. But, at whose expense?

Trump is pure bombast. Racist. A real spoiled brat. And, frankly, I don’t want to find out what his foreign policy would consist of. From every angle, it looks apocalyptic. He wants to send us backwards 60 years. He wants to cut Social Security. He wants to ban immigrants, with no pathway to citizenship.
I suspect he’ll take advice grin the wrong people. Frankly, I think he’s already doing that.

Then there’s Bernie. Now here’s a guy I can get behind… on Almost every issue. He had be working hard for the poor, minorities (a term that will apply to white folks in the next 25 years or so) all of his life. From marching for civil rights, to running and serving as Americans only independent Senator.
Bernie is anti-fracking. Hillary is not. He’s anti- war. Hillary, clearly, it’s not. He works for the poor, Indigenous, disabled, and every suffering class or race of people in the country. He wants to change the system towards actual fairness.  The other two, in Hillary’s case, want to maintain the status quo.
Trump, on the other hand, wants us to turn back all progress. You can bet he will too. Esp if he has the Republicans behind him.
Bernie actually offers some impossible dream scenarios. But, you have to respect that help fight for them hard enough to bring some of these dreams into fruition. He isn’t talking about destroying anything. He’s talking about building on progress.

To say that this is one of the most disturbing campaign seasons I’ve experienced in my 57 years, would be an underestimated claim.
You have Hillary, the warhawk & Trump, the orangutan racist, inexperienced, idiotic, and far from Presidential material as ANY candidate that’s ever gotten this far in a race.

So, what to do?
We’ll, we still have California. We still have New Jersey. There are enough states left that could turn this election around in Bernie’s favor. The problem is, as many Bernie supporters have observed, they’re a lot of Monkey business going on with voter purging, etc.
Mrs. Clinton, the alleged progressive has had nothing to say about voters rights. I think that’s because, ALL of the purging had worked in her favor. It might backfire in the general election though. As her minority support won’t be able to vote. I bet she doesn’t think that far ahead.

Then there’s social media, skate Trump supporters are posing as Bernie supporters. Hillary supporters are posing as Trump supporters. It goes on and on.

Recently, I discovered that the ever popular Jeanette Jing, purveyor of all things anti-Hillary, it’s actually an account used by foreign extreme right wing entities determined to get their revenge on Clinton meddling in their elections. Clinton likes to do that. And it doesn’t matter how much blood is spilled.

That’s rather have Trump than Hillary. But, they disguised themselves as Bernie supporters. When I discovered that, and realized Id been supporting these tweets, along with tens of thousands of others, I was truly shocked arms dismayed.

Turns out,  the person Jeanette Jing used is a Brazilian parasailer, part time hard core nude model named, Dioneia Vieira. You can figure it out by checking the names of the parasailing girls and matching up the faces.

Dirty tricks within the confines of our own democracy is one thing. When foreign countries, especially those who support death squads and dictatorships, is bad news. It’s really bad news. That’s because, there are fanatics on both sides.
Its amazing how, once locked in, most voters can’t even accept facts after a while.

After finding out about Jing,  it became clear that I don’t know who is on whose side on social media. It’s a toxic stew. And very few of these so-called infallible sources are really foreign agents working against our own best interests. That’s scary. But, that’s a fact.

I support Bernie 100%. I know he’s not perfect and that some of his ideas will fall flat when up against a Republican house & Congress. It’s especially important important than, to vote for those down ballot candidates that will work with him when he becomes President.
If he doesn’t become President, are still going to have more voices and a possible next election Bernie type running for President.

The future, considering Climate Change, perpetual war, poverty, low education standards, terrible Healthcare, unlivable wages, racism, the fate of indigenous people, can all become major issues, and many can be resolved, with ONE VOTE.

And that vote is for #FeelTheBern
#BernieSanders

Hillary Clinton Will Lose… By A LOT

One thing to remember when you think about Bernie Sanders losses. In every case, they were closed primaries. Independents were not allowed to vote. Millions, many millions of ONLY Democrat voters were purged.
This was a mugging, a robbery. Democracy itself was tested and failed.
In a democracy, the point is, everybody gets to vote for the candidate they want. The one with the most votes wins. That didn’t happen

And gay people, black people, Hillary Democrats, applauded this. Those 3 groups in particular, whom Hillary has betrayed time and time again, we’re the biggest cheerleaders. What is going on?

And I remember when we use to say them dumb Southerners always vote against their own interests.
Now what?

Climate change is real. So, I guess we don’t care.
War is real and Hillary loves it. Doesn’t matter.
Big banks destroyed the economy, robbed Americans of billions, no one went to jail ….. And Hillary’s own daughter and son in law work for em. She fires 250,ooo dollar speeches for em.

She refuses to release the Transcripts of her Goldman Sachs Speeches. Insiders, who were there, say they’ll sink her.
Guessed who is VP at Goldman?
Ted Cruz’s wife. They already have the Transcripts.
And they’ll release them during the general election.

In May, many FBI Insiders say we will see Hillary in handcuffs.  Know what that guarantees?

President Donald Trump.

Can’t wait. He’s so to the left of Hillary on foreign affairs she might as well be Ghengis Khan and he’s Ghandi

He came out against Iraq war. He ended the Bush dynasty. Can we, at least, thank him for that?

He’s going to crush Hillary. A landslide.

For all the reasons I’ve mentioned and more. She can’t win.
45% Americans are independents
33% are Bernie or bust
32% are Trump voters for certain
30 %of Democrats vow not to vote for her

She has an overall 53% negative rating. And once the general starts ,and Trump pivots to center…

What’s left? Its in the negative percentile

Do the math
