Look, I get it. All politicians are the same to you. What I'm saying is maybe just consider familiarizing yourself with how the American government works to avoid inadvertently talking out of your ass in the future.

Most politicians are corrupt and in the 2 party preferred system where you have political donations most of them have sold out to the people who donate to their campaigns and/or they are in it for the perceived power they have over others lives.

The proof of this is evident to any one who follows politics and they way our societies have changed in the last 30 years.

 

 

So I got one thing wrong, I stood up and admitted to that which not many people do,they just hide for a few days and come back and act like nothing has happened.

 

My ass is a beautiful thing according to my girl.

Cool. It's just the two things you were wrong about were the crux of your reasons for writing off the new wave of progressive politicians @Warhippy mentioned. However, you've made it pretty clear that it doesn't matter to you anyway so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As I have stated months ago actions speak louder than words.

For the last 30 or so years I have heard a lot of words from politicians and things have onlygotten worse.

Do you realise there is only so much wealth in the world and more of it is going to a smaller percentage of people. 

Why do you believe this is happening ?

I know part of the reason for this is legislation passed by the governments of our nation's,the privatisation of our public utilities.

 

So these politicians can BS all they want,if you want to buy into that's up to you however I am sick of words when I see the actions of these politicians matching their words,when I see a real growth in wages,more wealth going to the average person and our societies looking after their most vulnerable citizens I will give them some credit.

Until then they are just a bunch of scumbags to me.

Trump finally got his wish.....sort of:

 

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/federal-judge-rules-health-care-overhaul-unconstitutional/ar-BBQYCH3?li=AAggNb9

Quote

 

WASHINGTON - A conservative federal judge in Texas has ruled the Affordable Care Act "invalid" on the eve of the sign-up deadline for next year. But with appeals certain, even the Trump White House said the law will remain in place for now.

 

In a 55-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor ruled Friday that last year's tax cut bill knocked the constitutional foundation from under "Obamacare" by eliminating a penalty for not having coverage. The rest of the law cannot be separated from that provision and is therefore invalid, he wrote.

Supporters of the law immediately said they would appeal. "Today's misguided ruling will not deter us: our coalition will continue to fight in court for the health and wellbeing of all Americans," said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is leading a coalition of states defending the ACA.

 

The White House applauded O'Connor's ruling, but said the law remains in place while appeals proceed. President Donald Trump tweeted that Congress should pass a new law.

"As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster!" Trump tweeted. "Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions."

 

I'm sure the administration will look at this as a "win", (even thought it's really just the end of the first quarter) and maybe even a "promise kept". However, I recall that during the campaign, the mantra was always "Repeal and replace!" From the sounds of it, Trump is looking to others for the "replace" part.

 

Whatever happened to "Better, cheaper and everyone covered"?

Looks like the administration will be looking for a new "Geologist":

Quote

WASHINGTON - Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who is facing federal investigations into his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest, will leave the administration at year's end, President Donald Trump said Saturday.

Trump, in tweeting Zinke's departure, said the former Montana congressman "accomplished much during his tenure" and that a replacement would be announced next week. The Cabinet post requires Senate confirmation.

Zinke is leaving weeks before Democrats take control of the House, a shift in power that promised to intensify probes into his conduct. His departure comes amid a staff shake-up as Trump heads into his third year in office. The president on Friday named White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as his next chief of staff

Zinke, 57, played a leading part in Trump's efforts to roll back environmental regulations and promote domestic energy development. When he recently travelling to survey damage from California's wildfires, Zinke echoed Trump claims that lax forest management was to blame in the devastation.

He pushed to develop oil, natural gas and coal beneath public lands in line with the administration's business-friendly aims. But Zinke has been dogged by ethics probes, including one centred on a Montana land deal involving a foundation he created and the chairman of an energy services company that does business with the Interior Department.

Investigators also are reviewing Zinke's decision to block two tribes from opening a casino in Connecticut and his redrawing of boundaries to shrink a Utah national monument.

Zinke has denied wrongdoing.

The Associated Press reported last month that the department's internal watchdog had referred an investigation of Zinke to the Justice Department.

Trump told reporters this fall he was evaluating Zinke's future in the administration in light of the allegations.

Asked by reporters last month whether he might fire Zinke, Trump said, "No, I'm going to look into any complaints."

Zinke in November denied he already was hunting for his next job.

"I enjoy working for the president," he told a Montana radio station. "Now, If you do your job, he supports you."

"I think I'm probably going to be the commander of space command," Zinke said. "How's that one?"

Zinke had a memorable administration debut when he rode a bay roan gelding to his first day of work in March 2017.

 

Who am  kidding? Even though Zinke was a faux scientist, he was closer that any other member of the administration and Trump doesn't believe in science. They'll probably replace him with a coal mine owner.....

I just finished reading Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff and while i took it with a grain of salt the story he tells of an inept White House and president and his staff sure seems to ring true with all the resignations, firings etc.

CLAYMONT, Del. - An anti-bullying organization is offering some encouragement to a middle-school student who has been teased because his last name is Trump.

The News Journal reports that Pennsylvania-based national non-profit Teach Anti Bullying awarded Joshua Trump the Teach Anti Bullying Medal of Courage at a ceremony in his Delaware home Saturday.

 

No-one deserves to be bullied just because of their name, but honestly, how hard would it be to change it to something less offensive, like "Hitler" or "Cosby"? B)
