GIVE HIM A CHANCE, THEY SAID

Everyday it is worse, everyday the drama increases, everyday I am embarrassed, shocked and angered.

This week:

    • Trump gives inappropriate speech at Boy Scouts Jamboree, inciting children to boo Obama (who actually was a scout), and talked politics and sex.

    • Trump bullies Sessions via twitter to the extent it FINALLY makes some GOP members uncomfortable.
    • Trump do not call Sessions out because of his ridiculous, racist, unfair policies on drug, maximum sentences, or prison agenda–he calls him out because he ethically recused himself from the Russia investigation.
    • There is not doubt in many minds that Trump’s bullying of Sessions is setting the stage to fire Mueller. Political suicide? Well, nothing else has touched him yet.
    • Anthony Scaramocci replaces Spicer.

  • Trump’s new stooge Scaramocci,  “The Mooch”, calls Ryan Lizza from The New Yorker and gives a crazier interview than Trump gave to the NYT a week ago.
  • You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who does not think he must have been wasted to make such a call.
  • The Mooch claims he thought he was talking “Italian to Italian”. Is that a thing?
  • The Mooch throws Reince Priebus and Brietbart Bannon under the bus big time. He says this of Reince, “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” and this of Bannon, “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,”
  • Anthony claims, “O.K., I’m going to fire every one of them, and then you haven’t protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks.” I am sure this will create a culture of excellence and loyalty in the White House.
  • The call seemed to be prompted by the belief that Reince leaked public disclosure forms (that are available to ANYONE) and as a result The Mooch tweeted he will be contacting the FBI and Justice Department. Good luck with that, Anthony. Maybe you should contact a good lawyer since your wife just filed for divorce stating your political ambitions and love for Trump are just too much for her.
  • Reince resigns…
  • Trump bans transgenders from military…via tweet and much to the surprise of all military leaders.

——I can’t keep up. Everyday is a $hit Show and it is much, much worse than I ever imagined.

AMERICA DESERVES BETTER

Today is the 4th of July, a day America traditionally celebrates it’s freedom from Great Britain. More importantly, the day we declared independence from oppression. Honestly, I am feeling oppressed lately. As I sit here in my kitchen, drinking my morning coffee, reflecting on the significance of this holiday, I can’t ignore the obvious disconnect I feel this year.

I never really gave much thought to my love for this country before; I took my freedom, my comfort, my privilege for granted. I am first generation here on my mother’s side (my mother came from Scotland as a child) and 2nd generation on my father’s side. My grandparents came over from Scotland after WWII. They came in search of a better life for their two daughters. Coming from this background and being born in the 70s, I was raised on a BIG dose of “Free to Be Your and Me”, you can be and do anything you set your mind to and recognition that education and hard work are the key to success. My family wanted better and they believed the United States would provide the community and home they craved and for the most part, it did, but since Trump decided to run for Presidency, things have changed. There is a shift, a shift towards all the things I was always taught were wrong. It is wrong to lie, it is wrong to promote or be violent, it is wrong to not stand up for others, it is wrong to treat people poorly (or not treat them as you expect to be treated yourself), it is wrong to BE A BAD PERSON.

Today, I wonder what this country holds in store for my own family. What direction is this country heading. It feels like we are moving backward in our agenda and more importantly that agenda is based on fear and hate. I am not comforted by our government leaders. In fact, not a day has gone by since Trump has been elected that I have not been offended, embarrassed or scared. America deserves better. We deserve better, My family deserves better.

I woke today to yet again another ridiculous tweet from our unstable leader. ENOUGH! Trump is mentally unfit and a menace–he must go.

I want a President who loves this country, who loves and RESPECTS ALL it’s citizens, who is dedicated to truly making this country great–not because it is a good slogan but because investing in our country and it’s people will make our country and the world a better place for EVERYONE to live.

CONTACTING YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES–IT IS THAT EASY

Reasons you don’t want to call your representatives:

You don’t want to bother them. Your elected officials in Washington are there to represent you; your interests, your opinions, your wishes–you elected them and you pay their salary and it is a pretty big salary.

The compensation for most Senators, Representatives, Delegates, and the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico is $174,000 [1].

You don’t have the time. It takes less than 5 minutes to call your Senator or House Representatives.

You don’t know who your representatives are.

Find your House Representatives HERE, just type your zip code in the search bar.

Find your Senator HERE, just use the search function at the top of the page.

You don’t know how to reach them. Use the links above to find your representatives. Their contact information will be available on those sites. You can email them, but rumor has it phone calls are more effective. Each call must get logged and recorded.

Why don’t you try it out? Call you House and Senate Representatives and let them know that you oppose the AHCA/TRUMPCARE. Please.

That was easy. Now, do you want to get in touch with the White House? Call Trump directly and tell him how you feel about his policies. Well, the call may not directly go to Trump but your call and message will be on the record—or you could just tweet at him but you will run the risk of being blocked by him on twitter. You know how thin skinned he is. You can think of getting blocked on twitter by the President of the US as a badge of the #RESISTANCE
