This is a dark day for us because of the number of people who voted against their own best interests by voting for Republicans whose core constituency is the 1%, not the rest of us. No one can reasonably expect them to do anything that their billionaire overlords oppose.
Republicans lie because they have to lie to get elected.
That’s why they gush about the so called ‘job creators,’ who actually created massive unemployment by relocating their operations overseas eliminating millions of jobs here at home, and the ‘trickle down effect,’ which never happened because the 1% hoard their wealth and park their obscene profits derived from exploiting natural and human resources abroad in foreign banks to avoid paying taxes on those profits.
That’s also why they lie about voter fraud, despite the absence of any evidence to support their claim, in order to pass laws that, in effect, eliminate the right to vote by imposing all sorts of restrictions designed to disenfranchise millions of voters who would not vote Republican.
Our economy is stagnant because there is little demand for goods and services and there is little demand because people don’t have money to spend. They don’t have money to spend because of high unemployment caused by the loss of those jobs overseas and underemployment. Most people who are employed are not being paid a living wage, so they can’t afford to buy new stuff.
This deplorable situation is not going to change because it is exactly what the 1% want.
They also want militarized police to protect them and keep us in line.
Oh, and climate change, which is the biggest problem we face.
Here’s the new Republican chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Meet James Inhofe:
Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that “as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,” my point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.
There are far too many people in this country who are too stupid or willfully ignorant to pour piss out of a boot.
