To list a few….

Give Me your tired and your poor

Women’s Rights to equal pay

Women’s right to have abortions in most cases

Current Social Security retirement age

Some amount of Social Security Check

A major part of the funding for the EPA

Emission controls for cars a business(The Clean Air Act)

A better, standard minimum wage

Wall street regulations

What we get in return?

A President who is inexperienced in the field of World-Wide politics

A President who  seems unaware of people’s constitutional rights and the workings of the U.S. Government

The NRA ( A gun in every closet)

A President who has called some women pigs, dogs and worse.

A President who gloated after 9/11 since the event would make him money

A President who mused how the housing crash and economic crash in the U.S. several years ago would make him money.

A President who is against environmental protections

A President who has gone bankrupt numerous times.

A President who will soon address in court accusations of Fraud (Trump University) and rape charges.

There will be a Wall we will pay for

A First lady who has posed naked for tabloids. ( Not a crime, but is this appropriate considering the stature of the position?)

One more takeaway

You can only squeeze the middle class workers so much and for so long via both political party’s actions before that electorate is willing to shoot themselves in the foot rather than vote for an ongoing economic travesty. 

The day is done; our country’s course is set for the foreseeable future.

Advice for President Obama: 

Sign as many (a thousand or more) Executive Orders between now and January. This might slow that foreseeable future of a beast down.

Some memes do things well, but I doubt any I choose to use here will fit that bill…..

-The Memes say that Cruz is either a Nazi or he has a small penis-so he’s out. Too bad, he’s got a catchy name-Cruz- who wouldn’t want to take one? I can’t believe there isn’t a meme about Cruz taking a cruise-it’s all so wrong!

Meanwhile, when it comes to dirty laundry-Hillary knows where it all hangs out on the Capital Hill, but she may be hiring illegals to do her own. Who knows, right?

oh, I know Bush Jr and Cheney erased ten thousdan plus more e-mails than you did--something like 23 thousand,,,but really? Why follow that lead?

Cleaning dirty laundry take a knack

It takes a knack to clean dirty laundry

Chris Christie has bridge issues and should see a dentist. His rash behavior at the cost of workers and other commuters alike regarding ,’Bridgegate,’ raises serious concerns about his sense of fair play, or giving a shit about people.

I absolutely believe this.

I absolutely believe this.

When Purina left–i.e. was forced out– of her CEO position she left her corporate headquarters smelling like tuna fish. Later, we all learned that was just the smell of all her corporation’s money that had gone bad under her leadership.

People who support Jeb Bush say they’d hate to see another dynasty in the house via Clinton? Butttt wait? Wouldn’t Jeb be the third Bush to… whatever.

If Trump isn’t wearing a wig..I say, Why not! There’s something dreadfully wrong there. And he talks about how other people look?

Corn ,hands down.

Corn ,hands down.

The Miami guy does have his own hair-I suspect and I hate that….but there’s another thing I don’t like about Marco-Polo Rubio. He claimed his parents left Cuba to escape from Castro, but really they left before Castro took power. When confronted with his lie for sympathy story Rubio was quick to point out that the real story was Why his parents came to America. Well, to me, the real story is Why did Rubio lie in the first place. To me, the truth is always the real story, and for Marco-polo Rubio that may be hard thing to find.

I’m waiting to see who runs before I throw my hat on any marker.

-I haven’t heard Bernie say anything I disagreed with, but maybe his stance of the gun issue is wobbly…And he’s a Socialist. Don’t Socialists eat people for dinner? Just asking.

Time to eat.

Time to eat.

Hillary? Maybe she’s a tad more experience but more of a two-sided pancake by most accounts and fact checked flip-flops.

Here’s the good news: Ben Carson may not have tried to kill someone, or beat someone’s brains out with a rock in like forty years! There’s a resume’ starter. But heads up-the man’s moved on to dissecting brains for a living, so that’s something. It’s just a bit eerie.

My request is very simple as well. Come on Republicans, give America something to think about the next time around. Dig up Eisenhower, or some other successful guy you have lying around. Change! Heck Trump trumpets change but does he really offer anything to U.S. voters but that the rich will get richer and the middle class poorer?

Bottom line: our money has been devalued too many times not to be noticed at the kitchen table.

Plus, there’s still enough of us alive who remember when maybe America was great, and we’ve seen Reagan and worse, Bush Jr. tank our way of life–and about those on going attacks on Unions? The answer to that is our Republican party blowing in the wind, or pissing into it. NAFTA gets to sit on Mr. Clinton’s lap and lean on Al Gores shoulders, but the real tacks get pinned on regain my ass “I don’t recall” Reagan and the decider, Bush Jr., who made all the wrong decisions. What a pair–and I don’t mean that in a good way, let’s get that straight. Oh gosh, this whole thing is going down a hole.

I realize right off wiht my own children that using leashes was a bad idea since one day they'd use them on me.....see? Ya gotta think ahead.

I’ve a great idea! Let’s stick to the bare facts.

According ot reports, Donald Trumps current wife wanted to show how sexy of a first lady she'd make....Some trophies need polishing, others, not so much.

Donald Trumps current wife is courting the political right to line up those conservative votes for hubby and dollar. This makes ‘cents’, Right? I mean ,really? This is the wife of the conservative leader so far for the Presidency?

In the end, I want a Democrat in the White House….or at this stage, I think we’re screwed. Why, you yell! It’s simple: the Republican trickle down economics has been a HUGE disaster for the middle class working family. The mind-blowing thing is the party still hangs on to that principal when they slather on about what will make this Country great again. It’s a HUGE lie and a worse than that blunder for the Republican party.

Two elections later and the Republican party still can’t learn-that’s scary.  Almost as scary as Trump not wearing a hair piece.

Believe it or not, I’d love for the political Right to come around and start making sense with their platforms, and not cents off the backs of the America workers. Have you ever seen a one-sided penny? Me neither-and the lunacy coming out of the party to the right makes me nervous. Major Tom, where are you?

Forget who’s running for President. Maybe, we all need to just run away? But okay, right now, my hat hangs on Hillary. And for the polls that shout how Bernie is closing in on Hillary, well at least some of that is bullshit coming from the Right who’d rather run against , “The Socialist.”  But the nominations will come, and then we’ll know who’s really in the ring.

People on the Right often say, “But the Unions did this or that…” Well here’s the thing–every union right was agreed upon at a table that joined business owners and union people together-so how is it that only one group at those negotiations is held responsible for what is accepted by the joint business/owners/union meetings and contracts? NO one brings guns to negotiations… it’s a give and take process…if the outcomes from contractual agreements are bad, then both owners and worker unions are to blame…it’s a two-way street. The trash talk on unions is baloney…and the Republicans can’t stop lying about this process. Their agenda is to enrich the powerful top 2% of Americans, little else.

Deregulation of wall street and the sub-prime lending push, both sponsored by the Republicans, led directly to America’s last economic crash—-the Republican refusal to raise the debt ceiling so that America could pay off debt it ALREADY owed was a disaster for our country as well. You know, while I attended Gettysburg college, I used to , on occasion, eat lunch with Ex-President Eisenhower. Surrounded by secret service, he’d laugh, joke and talk to us about  America once a week. Some Republicans in the past(not Reagan) were good leaders….this group we have had since Reagan are hell-bent on breaking the back of the working class for the sake of big business. Though the party offers a few good ideas about too many Medicaid checks/family services checks-their other agendas do not favor anyone but the top 2% income bracket in America. Of course, well-to-do Americans-upper middle class-think the Republicans help their economic standing, but they don’t….and won’t.

Have Republicans no sense of recent history? Nearly all of America’s wealth has shifted to the top 2%-actually, the top 1% since 1980. Everyone knows,  every chart shows, middle class earning in actual dollar’s value has gone down since the mid 1980’s……Big Business doesn’t need our governments handouts or help—the working families in America do! But Republicans continue to campaign for more deregulation, fracking-a known environmental disaster, the end of social security, and harp that business should have the same rights as people in our constitution! 72% of Americans polled think this last gem of an idea is wrong, and an affront to basic humanitarian rights. The phrase is, We The People, not we the business. These are some of the reasons the Democrats have won during the past two Presidential elections, and why they will win in 2016-unless, the Republican Party can somehow stop trying to dismantle a National Health Care system that 28 million people have joined and favor, along with ending their worn-out, tried and failed pro-business platforms.

Bernie Sanders put forth some good ideas the Republicans might want to look over and consider adopting as part of the political platforms for 2016.

Bernie Sander’s page…..

a bunch of ideas I favor....From Bernie Sander's FB page...

There’s much more to say about the mistakes of the Right–but that can wait. Thing is, if the Republicans want to win in 2016, they shouldn’t wait to make big changes in their political agendas. Americans didn’t vote in numbers in this past 2014 mid-term election, but they will in 2016, and in the past two Presidential Elections we’ve made our preferences clear.

The majority of Americans are pro-environmental protection; pro alternative energy;  pro worker’s rights; and pro National Health care. Get a grip Republicans; listen up.
