A Late Spring Tease Of A Cool Morning Coffee Muses
It’s really funny the difference ten degrees in temperature of a morning makes in the enjoyment of the day… Mother Nature is giving us one more teasing reminder of what spring should be. Lows in the sixties, dry wonderful air, fresh green colors everywhere you look… just about the most you could hope for in spring in Texas along the Gulf Coast.
Well, Donald Trump’s budget dropped last night. The thump should have been felt in every family home in America. The cuts proposed for America’s safety net are profound and speak more to what kind of a man this President is than even the Healthcare bill he backed. The healthcare fiasco came out of the House, not this evisceration of funding for the poor and least protected among us. This thing came from the Trump administration. I think Mr President that you’ve sat on that famous drain you were promising to use on the swamp.
I think we have a problem of definitions in this country. When Americans hear the term working-class families more and more they see the Wal-Mart staffers, the grocery store clerks, the plumbers, the fire fighters, the policemen, the mechanics… But when Republicans say working-class families they are talking about the brokers, the upper management types, the Congressmen, the Senators. All the rest are just flotsam in the backwaters of the economy. They voted for the lies, just like they always do. They’ll take the dregs of the cup, just like they always do. The cream will be skimmed for the richest of the rich, just like it always is.
As long as they have Fox to burnish the lies, nothing will change. We have the most unprepared person in America running the country. And still… still, over 80% of Republicans think he’s doing a great job… Absolutely nothing more needs to be said about the Republican voter than that. They think he’s doing a great job!
Hell, Republicans in Texas have passed a bill that says you can be blocked from adopting a child if you are gay or any religion other than Christian. I mean come on, really… I guess they feel confident their stolen Supreme Court seat will now protect unconstitutional laws. Republicans, never pass up a chance to discriminate, it just might be the last chance you get.
Pardon the morning rant… it’s call blues from a red state of mind.
