DACA Back In Congress

Trump’s subliminal message to Congress: Damned if You Do – or Don’t fix Immigration/DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)! 

DACA is an Executive Order President Obama signed in 2012 after Congress refused to act, again, on Comprehensive Immigration Reform. It grants temporary protected status to undocumented young people who entered the country illegally with their parents. Recipients have to meet certain standards and in return, get work authorization and a social security number.

President Donald Trump today (9/5/2017) gave the program a 6 month lease and asked Congress to Act — or DACA ends! 

Boston Globe

This “ending DACA by NOT ending DACA” is a BRILLIANT political strategy by President Trump.

I don’t agree with ending DACA. I fully support DACA and want these young kids (AND their parents, especially parents with kids who are US citizens and/or lawful PERMANENT Residents) to get lawful status. However, President Trump campaigned on an anti-immigrant platform and it was beyond naive of anyone to believe that HE would support DACA, AGAINST the wishes of his base of hard-line anti-immigrant supporters.

While Trump may not be very good at “presidenting”, HE is unsurpassed at political strategizing!

teapar

With one stroke Trump sent his supporters/base into ecstasy and kicked the difficult, potentially career-derailing DACA decision to Congress. Bravo! Take THAT Paul Ryan. And am I GLAD to see it come back to haunt you!!!

Remember when Immigration Reform passed in the Senate – and Republicans, led by then House Speaker John Boehner, REFUSED to bring the bill to the FLOOR OF THE HOUSE for a vote? Well, tee-hee…had they DONE that, they WOULD NOT be facing this dilemma today, because dilemma it is…

If republicans, led by Speaker Paul Ryan KILL DACA, then President Trump GETS what he wants at the expense of Ryan and other republicans. Trump can claim: “I didn’t tell Congress to kill DACA; I just asked them to fix it. Left to me, I’d have let DACA stand but Congress decided…” Hispanics then flock to the polls in droves (hopefully) to defeat republicans and Ryan, Mitchell lose their Majority positions…which would lead Trump (and Steve Bannon, ex-White House chief strategist/senior counselor) to celebrate!

Wall.jpg

If republicans, led by Ryan, legitimize DACA, then Trump can tell his base: “I didn’t do it. I ended it and sent it to them to do their job. They: Ryan, Mitch McConnell (Republican, Senate majority leader), etc – these swamp republicans, THEY saved DACA!” Hard-line republicans then flock to primaries to defeat these Trump blockers!

Either way, Trump wins with his base and hard-line anti-immigrant voices. Plus he also gets to blame and possibly get rid of republicans like Ryan and McConnell whom he sees as opponents.

GOP leaders: Ryan (blue tie) & McConnel

See the Machiavellian sub-plot?

I wonder, with hindsight, what the GOP would do now if they could go BACK to 2005-2007 when BI-PARTISAN efforts led by Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy and Republican President George W. Bush tried and failed to pass the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 because HOUSE REPUBLICANS KILLED IT!

Tea Party.jpgYou get what you sow! If you had done the right thing THEN, instead of playing politics and catering to a BASE that NOW opposes YOU, your life would be MUCH easier today because there would likely be NO Donald Trump…since immigration would be OFF the table, hence NO wall to tout!

As for Democrats, I detest, deplore and abhor their blatant HYPOCRISY on Immigration Reform. When they had the perfect opportunity to pass COMPREHENSIVE Immigration Reform with NO republican votes in 2009, they instead embraced Health Care (which has proven to be a NOOSE around their necks ever since).

I’m not sure, wasn’t there, but word out of DC is that Michelle Obama argued passionately FOR Immigration Reform and Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel, argued against.

  • WHY didn’t YOU act, President Obama?
  • Why did you not tackle Immigration Reform BEFORE Health Care or TOGETHER with Health Care, back in 2009?
  • Why did you hastily (and cynically?) cobble together DACA (June 2012) and later DAPA (November 2014) in the run-up to elections?
  • What happens NOW to the PARENTS of DACA if Congress protects and/or deports the DACA kids?
  • I campaigned for Obama in 2008 and have never lifted a finger to do anything since because I felt very strongly, then as now, that President Obama and Democrats FAILED undocumented (and other immigrants) on Immigration Reform.

dcrally

So in my opinion, President Obama can “speak up” NOW, but the time I wanted him to SPEAK UP was when he was IN the White House with a MAJORITY in the House and Senate!

I wrote to President Obama in December 2008. (I gave a copy to Obama friend, then Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick to hand to the President), but I guess since I am NOT a Harvard erudite like Larry Summers…my voice was/is too plebeian, too inconsequential, to be either passed on or considered!

So president Obama, if you did not read that 2008 letter, one of many  I sent to you on immigration, I’m posting it, in part, below:

December 17, 2008

ATTENTION: President Elect Obama

Dear Mr. Obama,

Now that you are preparing to take over the leadership of this great country, putting your team together and soliciting input from the public, I’m hoping IMMIGRATION is high on your list.

The economy and its attendant issues do take precedence, right now. Healthcare is also important. But IMMIGRATION must not be overlooked as a top priority, either. Remember, during the campaign, when the financial crisis first broke, and republican Senator (John) McCain “suspended” his campaign and headed to Washington, you said: A president has to be able to do more than one thing at once. So I hope that you/your administration can work on both the Economy…AND Immigration too!

Dreamer sign.jpgIt makes smart POLITICAL sense:

Hispanics, a large and growing voting bloc, shifted away from republicans in the 2008 election and voted overwhelmingly for you. I doubt you believe that was due solely to your charm, intellect and good looks (though I admit those are considerable). They gravitated to you and Democrats because they hope YOU will reform the nation’s broken immigration system and make it possible for immigrants living here, (the most visible of whom are Hispanic), to achieve legal status. They were also turned off by the Republican’s vitriolic tone during the recent national debate over illegal immigration. The GOP’s racist, divisive and insulting comments, spurred by some politicians and talk-show hosts, demonized all Hispanics – both illegal and legal.

Reform immigration! You may not be able to claim immediate victory on the wars or the economy by the time mid-term elections roll around, but you can claim immediate victory on immigration reform.

In addition: The money immigrants send back home account for a large chunk of the GDP in many countries, like El Salvador. Without those remittances, observers say those countries would likely descend into chaos and contribute to regional instability. That would cost America a lot more.

DACA innovation.jpg

  • It makes smart ECONOMIC sense:

Millions of immigrants are willing, able and ready to buy some of those foreclosed and abandoned properties now flooding the market and blighting neighborhoods. Immigrants are also eager and willing to buy cars, now bloating dealer’s inventories. Legal status unleashes the power of millions of consumers who can now apply for credit, including bank loans, travel and open businesses.

Fixes a BROKEN system:

Many of the millions of undocumented immigrants living here no longer have lives to return to back home. Immigrants have set down roots and built lives here, in this country. Although many immigrants live in fear that allows them to be victimized without recourse, most do not want to go back and have nothing to go back to.

 There are news reports of military wives who are being deported because their husbands died in combat (Iraq/Afghanistan) before all the necessary paperwork was filed or completed. They’re being told to go…but their US-born children can stay!

  Talented, promising kids of illegal immigrants who are attending school here, or have graduated, cannot go to college. These “straight A” kids and honor students fall in the cracks instead of becoming the teachers, scientists and other skilled workers America so badly needs.

Immigration Inaction

 –  In Massachusetts, an outstanding math teacher, who had been teaching for years, was/is facing deportation because of a paperwork glitch.

  MEANTIME, immigration agents round up illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds then release them, because federal/state resources are overwhelmed. Yet ICE picks up factory workers, tears them from their families, and deports them.

Foreign artists/students/scientists and other professionals have to jump through so many hoops to get here, they give up in frustration and go elsewhere, taking valuable brain power and innovation with them.

The TIMING is perfect:

Democrats now have a majority in both houses. And I’m sure there are some republicans who realize their hard-line stance cost them Hispanic votes. They will want to get these votes back….and be more amenable. As you said during the campaign, NOW IS THE TIME!

The support is there. Despite the shouting coming from the right, a majority of Americans favor giving undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. Unions, businesses, politicians, churches, community groups, the legal profession as well as immigration advocates and enforcers, urge reform.

YES YOU CAN…

YES, WE CAN!

Respectfully,

DACA how.jpg

In My opinion, my BITTER, disgruntled, defeated, dejected, frustrated, feeling rejected, let-down by Democrats opinion, Democrats OUTRAGE now is way too little, far too late….and their lack of action is beginning to backfire on them with Trump’s DACA edict.

Memo to Democrats:

Take a page from the Donald Trump playbook and LEARN how to please your base, instead of pleasing Rham Emmanuel!

Mirrors and Smoke?

WHAT is WRONG with us? With America? With THE WORLD?

Today, getting off the train at a stop in Boston…an older white male saw only ONE THING: Black skin — and decided I was an immigrant. (FAMILY COULD HAVE BEEN SLAVING IN THE COTTON FIELDS LONG BEFORE HIS PEOPLE CAME VIA ELLIS ISLAND or later) but my black skin automatically makes me an immigrant…as opposed to the blonde Australian who just got in yesterday. 

So, Mr. Trump supporter told me that I would be thrown out of the country…and HE was going to call ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) for me.

Normally, I ignore such ignorance, but I decided “Hell NO!”  I was not passing meekly by.

Orange Line Boston Subway

So I turned around, walked up to him and told him: I can give him my phone number to pass on to ICE, if he’d like. He said NO, but he will call ICE on me.  I told him he can USE my phone to call ICE and make it easier for them to find me. He said NO. But they will come for me. I told him (Trump) will at most remain in office for 8-years – and WHAT THEN?  He said a lot can happen in 8-years (which of course IS their Grand Plan, to become a Totalitarian State with a muzzled media, no press conferences, no accountability, a King-Emperor/Pope that everyone must bow down to. Is Trump 666?)!

I told the guy – after 8-years, it is WE who will come for HIM, because that is the process they are starting!

Other groups of white people were shocked and supportive. The thing about white people…(with the EXCEPTION of KKK and White Supremacists) they/you hear about stuff like that happening, but FEW of them/you actually experience it or see it happen – so when they/you do, they/you are shocked! We expect that to happen ELSEWHERE, IN RED states…not HERE in Boston/Massachusetts.

So I called my U.S. Representative, Stephen Lynch; I called the Transit Police, I called a news channel and I have to call both the mayor and governor’s offices. Because unless “victims” SPEAK OUT and onlookers SPEAK UP,  perpetrators will feel that they can be venomous with impunity.

Welcome to the new atmosphere of Venom in Trump’s Reality Show called: America!

Make America White Again

Chlorox stock must have gone UP after Trump won?

I understand that many of Trump’s supporters are D-students…with even lower intellects, and CANNOT grasp the intricacies of globalization and historical context, but surely they KNOW enough about the Tutsi/Hutu conflict in Rwanda, about Bosnia, about South African Apatheid, about Nazi Germany (oops, wrong analogy for this bunch), Catholics/protestants in Northern Ireland, Christians/Muslims/Jews/Hindus from Israel/Palestine to Egypt and India, either persecuting or being persecuted plus numerous other hate-fuelled conflicts worldwide – to KNOW that these types of conflicts have NO happy endings? Or DO they know?  

It is NOT in either white, black or grey interests to stoke division and unity based on ideology, race or religion. There are NO winners, ONLY losers! This is NOT what Americans should want…but hey, go ahead. We’re heading the way of Rome so maybe it is inevitable…a matrix…without a leo. (reference to movie: The matrix). With Trump: always deja vu all over again! Or is it a perpetual Groundhog’s Day?

We are destroying our environment to the point that one day, life on earth may no longer BE sustainable – and/or we may end up living in a kind of Hunger Games scenario where only billionaires like the Trumps can afford oxygen.

Opioid crisis

We are destroying the fabric of this society with our dependence on drugs, from prescription to recreation. Drug use is now SO prevalent among employees nationwide the percentage of people testing positive for drug use ON THE JOB is rising – to the point, where immigrants/refugees from Syria, etc…are being hired to do the jobs.

According to a CNN expose, 80% of employees at an oil and trucking company in Colorado tested positive for drugs (marijuana is legal, but smoking it on the job is cause for dismissal) and had to be fired! In Louisville, Kentucky: 695 overdose calls to EMT in January 2017, an average of about 22 PER DAY. (CNN)

We are angry at each other for the sins of politicians whom we revere – but who DO NOT love us back! So if Trump shoots a person on 5th Avenue, THAT is ok, especially if it’s a black person or an immigrant. If Hillary Clinton sneezes on anybody, she is a monster who is trying to infect the world with influenza! And this hypocrisy cuts BOTH ways,! BOTH parties are equally at fault!

While politicians bask under 100-percent health coverage for themselves and possibly their dogs, too… we, like the dumbasses we are, operate like programmed robots…”repeal Obamacare”… leave me uncovered, no matter if my wife/daughter/sister/mother/BROTHER gets raped and the insurance company calls that a pre-existing condition. DON’T CARE! Don’t want Obamacare! These bots DON’T even KNOW why they don’t want it – but their politicians, who all HAVE GOVERNMENT funded healthcare tells them: “you should NOT have government funded health care”…so they’re following the Pied Piper! Why don’t you ask your congressional delegations to give up THEIR government funded healthcare?!

robots

  • (Ro)Bots don’t have jobs, but they vote for someone who cuts jobs and makes HIS products overseas. You want a PATRIOTIC company; how about MacNeil Automotive Products – MADE IN AMERICA, with pride. Do you see the company execs on TV blowing hot air? No. Actions don’t need words – they speak for themselves!
  • Bots don’t have a home or they’re losing the one they have, so they vote for someone who has gold plated walls, gold-plated toilet seats and gold-plated dishes. Guess if you’re broke, he will scrape off some the edgeS of his toilet seat and give it to you to pawn!
  • Bots can’t afford to fly, probably never stepped on a plane – but vote for someone with (according to lying New York Times) helicopters (plural) and several airplanes (see photos below), including a gas-guzzling private Boeing 757 that seats about 200 people and uses more money in fuel (thousands of dollars an hour) than bots made in 10-years!
  • Bots vote for Trump who cut funding for drug treatment – while their community is being ravaged by drugs…but what does THAT matter, if he’s deporting immigrants. See ALL those immigrants who are leaving and taking the meth with them? You’re good now…

Bots are so fuelled by hate, they can’t see the forest for the trees until the Zika virus comes to bite them in the behind, then it will be the fault of immigrants.

Can’t understand why there are so many devastating tornadoes, floods and droughts? immigrants!

Why that nuclear facility tunnel collapsed in Washington State? Immigrants.

Why bots don’t have a college degree? Immigrants!

If we CANNOT see that there is SOMETHING wrong with the current political climate; if we cannot SEE that this White House is a chaotic super-mess; if we cannot see that THIS dysfunction is NOT what America should be presenting to the world – if we cannot see that a republican president like a Mitt Romney or a Paul Ryan even, would act with DIGNITY reflecting the office of President of the United States; if we are so BLINDED by ideology that we can no longer see, acknowledge and speak the TRUTH, regardless of how it looks for our side, then welcome to the great decline. NO Supreme court Judge is worth THIS! Beware you get a  judge and lose BOTH a president and a party!

Because Democrats will gain power and UNDO everything that Trump/republicans do now…Republicans will return and re-undo – and fiddle, fiddle…

Americans? Americans…do you hear me? Republicans, Democrats and Independents…

  • Do you want clean air?
  • Do you want clean water, no lead, no contaminants?
  • Do want good paying jobs?
  • Do you want safe streets, neighborhoods?
  • Do you want good schools?
  • Do you want to reduce, pay down the National Debt?
  • Do you want a strong, technologically capable military?
  • Do you want healthcare that covers PRE-EXISTING conditions?
  • Do you want to drive on a bridge that will not fall into the Water? Airplanes that terrorist don’t blown up?
  • Do we want an America that is free of terror threats?
  • An America that is FREE?

2013 Brige Collapse. Seattle, Washington

Are there going to be TWO different sets of air? The clean red air for republicans to breath, while the democrat sitting next to him at the ball game is breathing polluted blue air?

Are there going to be TWO different levels of airlines?  Republican Air with its RED logo that terrorism akeep targetting and blue Democrat Air, with its Donkey logo, that terrorists send valentines to?

ARE WE NOT JUST DUMB ASSES — ALL? What the HELL is the fighting for?

Oh France, France – what are your people drinking to make you so politically savvy, while we over here are acting like functional illiterates? If it is the wine – I don’t drink, but it might be time now for me to go out and get roaring drunk!

PS: Trump’s veiled “threat” to Comey is NO  bluff.

I believe Trump tried and TRIED to get Comey to say he (Comey) would be “LOYAL” so HE (Trump) could get Comey ON TAPE and compromize him. If Comey, a SEASONED veteran, did not go to the Oval Office, in this climate of Trump, without HIS OWN MIKE and a gadget that would sweep for listening devices and hidden recorders…then he DAMN well NEEDED TO BE FIRED.

James Comey.jpg

Wonder if HE will guess I’m checking for recordings??? 

Here’s what I think:…for what it’s worth: Trump is like the Wizard of Oz. And now we are getting a peek behind the curtain…

All that facade about savvy businessman and deal maker…blah! (Romney, others KNEW.) Trump is just the public face of the Trump empire, the spokesperson. His kids, namely Ivanka, is/are running the show. After his dramatic bankruptcies, nearly running the company into the ground, I suspect Donald became a figurehead. The public was lulled into a myth about Trump and now that’s being exposed!

I also believe Mr. Trump is regretting becoming President…because with his inability to earlier grasp the scope of the Presidency, HE thought it would be as easy as his Wizardry of Oz, but being President is NOT mirors and magic…so he is out of his depth, because his kids CANNOT save him in this setting…though they are trying, moving to the oval office, purging the insane people or keeping them at arms length…but HE is Donald Trump! Unruly, out of control…

Notice how his wife, who knows him best of all, is keeping a low profile. She knows. If only Mrs. Trump would write a Kiss-and-Tell?

Nero.jpg

So, Donald Trump is slowly sabotaging his own presidency. And you can watch it unravelling. Sad. If only he would hire some excellent republicans (or democrats/people) with the skills needed to salvage this ship, like a Carl Rove (whom I detest, by the way, but he’s good at what he does!).

But Donald WILL NOT tolerate anyone who so much as watches him cross-eyed…so here we are.

Who in their right mind will CHALLENGE the FBI when the agency is investigating you, especially after you called them names, like Nazis?

OK, President Trump. May I remind you that Comey is not Rosie O’Donnell?  HE knows what’s in your tax returns…

And please, PLEASE Mr. President, I know nobody around you can tell you to STOP talking…but I’m not around you. For heaven’s sake: STOP TALKING! STOP TWEETING. STOP watching TV.  

Just STOP!

Head for the gym. Go biking. Golf! Jeez!

Photo Op Health Care 2017

Yep! This Photo Op! See you later, alligator.  The President craves “loyalty” even at your expense.

Republicans, it is ON your heads…if (when?) this trainwreck unravells. All it will take is replaying that photo op in the Rose Garden to “celebrate” a bill that’s going nowhere. Heard of the Bridge to Nowhere? This is the Healthcare BILL to Nowhere!

Take a page oput of the Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz playboook: GET OUT NOW, WHILE THE GOING IS STILL GOOD! Remember I warned you…while you can still smell sweet.

All photos from Google Images, unless otherwise stated…

CAREFUL: What You Wish For…GOP!

Because often you get your wish, and…time

When you get it, it sometimes turns against you! It’s even worse when we DON’T listen to warnings from others – or ignore red flags – or heed that inner, nagging voice! So now Republicans have their President-elect. Trump! And I wonder how that feels in private. Because Trump and his beliefs do not jive with Conservative Republicans and their beliefs.

However, republicans were so blinded by Supreme Court appointments and “repealing” Obamacare” that they jumped into bed with Trump. Now whatever Trump does reflects on them! My prediction is: The same wave that swept them into office will also sweep them back out…except the ebbing wave could be a Tsunami!

If I was advising the Republican Party, here’s what I’d tell them:

Take the moral high road. Take a strong stance. Forget about the Supreme Court. Judges will not dictate how Americans live their lives. If you try to use the courts to put restrictions on people or ram your personal beliefs down others throats, you will unleash a tide of civil unrest and opposition that will hurt not only the economy, but America’s reputation and your party’s credibility and prospects.

Remember, REMEMBER, that MORE people voted AGAINST Trump than FOR Trump. All those people who voted 3rd parties, 3rd candidates or write-ins also voted AGAINST Trump too!

jason-chaffetz

Chaffetz

Plus many of the people who voted FOR Trump do not necessarily like Trump or even support Trump or the GOP. They just chose to  thumb their noses against “the establishment” and TRY Trump for size. These voters can return Trump in 4 years (if by then we still have a democracy!)…or demand a mid-term exchange in 2 years!

Very few republicans came out against Trump and stuck to their principles.

Most of them, like Speaker Paul Ryan and that spineless Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz, flip-flopped and wavered when they thought of their own political futures. They rushed to reject Trump when polls showed he was losing – then rushed to bow at the altar of Trump when it seemed like he was winning. Do they think Trump will EVER forget they did not support him during most of his campaign!

Republicans have a shock coming – a MAJOR shock. Because if they have not yet figured it out yet, Trump will do things only one way: TRUMP’S way, and he won’t care whether that advances or decreases “Republican goals”, especially as he’s NOT beholden to them for money or connections or advice. Trump is interested only in advancing one brand: TRUMP!

Trump family.jpgAnd I for one, can’t wait!

  • I can’t wait to see how Trump deals with Russia and Putin – and see how that fits with GOP goals.
  • Can’t wait to see how he deals with foreign interventions – and how that fits with GOP goals.
  • Can’t wait to see how he deals with Immigration Reform – and Muslims – and how that fits with GOP goals.
  • Can’t wait to see how he goes about cutting the debt – and how that fits with GOP goals.
  • Can’t wait to see how many white supremacists he places in positions of power…and how that fits with GOP protestations of non-racism.
  • Can’t wait to see how many family members Trump invites to the swamp…and how this plays out with Republicans attacks on “Pay for Play”.
swamp.jpg

Please “drain the swamp!” And see how surprised you’ll be at what you find, are already beginning to find, at the bottom!

Finally, I also wish to remind Republicans that the results of this election DO NOT reflect a long-term trend. So far, this election remains an anomaly  UNLESS Trump delivers, brings never-Trumpers into the fold, does not get involved in “Pay for Play” scandals related to his business dealings, does NOT alienate those who voted for him and/or DOES NOT further repulse those who did NOT vote for him!

Guess if anyone can do this, it is Donald Trump. I, for one, am willing to give him a chance…

Which is MORE than Republicans gave to President Obama. Around this time in 2008, right after President Obama was first elected, Republicans were meeting in secret to plot and plan how to undermine Obama and pledging loyalty to their “Just Say NO!” approach. Yet today, those very same republicans are urging people to support the new president and give him a chance. Go figure!

Hypocrites. DRAIN THE SWAMP, Mr. Trump!!! We’re watching and waiting with extra nets, thigh-high waders and some stun guns and harpoons for the many toothy alligators, sharks and other vermin lurking below the surface.

vultures

And DO NOT forget the vultures circling overhead!

Or the establishment rattlesnakes swimming around you, with tape on their rattlers! Said rattlers (Giuliani, Gingrich, et al) see YOU as their meal-ticket to positions they would NEVER otherwise gain. Because they are so yesterday, their return date is past…even to their own fellow republicans who DO NOT want them, would not vote for them or even hire them – except to hand them a 10-foot pole (30 foot pole?) to propel themselves deeper into the swamp!!!

I suspect many voters already have buyers remorse. Too bad. No returns until 2020. Don’t lose that receipt!

President Trump!

I should have followed my instincts and called it for Trump – because I never believed the Washington “pundits” (whom I despise), and the pollsters, about the outcome of this election. 

Trump

I had a gut feeling Trump would win. I did not want him to win, but felt he would win! I should have called it. Too late now – after the fact. My bad!

I don’t feel sorry for the Democratic Party. Actually I’m kind of glad democrats lost!

 They can go to hell for all I care. Maybe, just maybe, they will start LISTENING to the “ordinary” people they depend on to campaign for them and to cast ballots. Maybe, just maybe, they will open their doors and listen to us – instead of the Donna Braziles!

brazille

Which is why I did not lift a finger to campaign this cycle…nor did I contribute any money, despite the numerous texts to contribute just a dollar – or $3! Why the hell should I contribute money for a chance to ride with the candidate — or to meet the President? Shouldn’t I be able to meet the president without having to buy that favor? I tried to contact the President for free. I wrote to the White House several times. They never replied or acknowledged me. So why the hell should I campaign for your legacy?

obamacare

And why should I chip in, when I earn next to nothing and you’re doing NOTHING for me, DID nothing for me in the last 8-years, while you’re millionaires? For 8 years democrats had a chance to do something on immigration, but they played politics with people’s lives and futures, then close to the 2012 election, democrats come up with DACA as another political ruse…instead of reforming immigration when they held BOTH the house and Senate in 2008.

Again: Get lost! Serve you right. Most of America is now red and pretty soon, your party’ll be dead!

electoral-map-2016

I once foolishly tried to reach out to democrats. I also offered to testify on Immigration. But I guess I’m not a star, not a Hollywood personality! Who ended up testifying? Stephen Colbert! Instead of hearing from a real immigrant, lawmakers chose to play-act. And now you want me to campaign for you? How about getting the people who stayed in the Lincoln bedroom to go door knocking for you! Rural republicans are not the only ones hurting. Urban democrats are hurting too!

rahm

I think Democrats should go back and thank Rahm Emanuel who apparently persuaded President Obama to ABANDON Immigration Reform (reportedly against Michele Obama’s advice) in favor of Health Care/Obamacare which has been a noose around the neck of the President and the Democratic Party, ever since.

To the so-called “democrats” who sabotaged Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Socialists who should perhaps form their own party instead of hiding under the democrats banner (because socialist is a dirty word in America) — thanks. Thank you Bernie Sanders for beating up on Hillary Clinton and giving Trump ammunition to aim at her. The party is yours now. But half that party will never vote for you either!

bernie-supporters

Thanks for helping damage and sully Clinton’s image and reputation and solidify her negativity in the eyes of voters.

Congratulations to the Bernie voters who did not “like or trust” Hillary Clinton enough so they voted 3rd party. You voted for Attorney General Chris Christie and Secretary of State Newt Gingrich and whatever Rudy Giuliani will be. I hope you like the representation you will get from your 3rd party candidate. I’d hate to see you throw your vote away.

Sanders

You must be ecstatic that Hillary did not win! Yes, indeed — thanks for your “protest” vote! You will be invited to the White House to meet with Jeff Sessions and doctor Ben Carson to talk about climate change and all the other issues that you hold dear. Both Trump and your protest candidate will appoint Supreme Court judges who will uphold the issues you champion, like same-sex marriage and women’s reproductive rights.

………………………

Now I really feel sorry for Trump supporters. The ones who really believe he can actually DELIVER on the things he promised you.

I can already see the very warm welcome he’s going to get from both democrats and the “never Trump” republicans – to push his agenda.

wall

I can’t wait to see him:

  1. Build the wall…even WITH Mexico paying for it!
  2. Repeal Obamacare.
  3. Round up and deport (illegal) immigrants.
  4. Battle the environmentalists on his energy policies.
  5. Battle his own party on non-intervention and trade.
  6. Get the jobs that evaporate due to technology to come back.
  7. Lock up Hillary Clinton.
  8. Send prosperous blacks and Hispanics back to being maids and underlings.

When you finally wake up, pinch me too!

The modern-day left-wing RADICALS who protest against the people who live in mansions like these…take money from people who live in mansions like these!

So, you want to PROTEST Trump? And…?

Are you going to make us aware of something about Trump WE DON’T ALREADY KNOW? WHAT IS your point? (Apart from exercising your democratic right to protest, to gather, to speak — which, incidentally, you try to DENY to others.)

Do you have some shocking EXPOSE about Trump? For example: is Trump really Satan in disguise — OR Hitler OR Elvis? Or even Tupac?

Trump protest

IF you are going to proclaim that Trump is misogynistic, bombastic, racist, imperialist, narcissistic, unrealistic, an attention-getter, race-baiter, not to mention jet-setter…WE KNOW!!!

We TRULY don’t NEED you to point out Mr. Trump’s flaws. Those of us who’ve been following the Primaries, debates and Caucuses, news and talk-shows…we KNOW. Even people who are NOT following just know – it’s blowing in the wind! CAN’t miss it!

We’re unlikely to see a placard at your protest and go: “Oooohh – No Wall!” So, you want to occupy the Capitol and will “demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do or until they send thousands of us to jail.”

Bring paper to write your last will and testament – or enough money for bail. Plan to say there until you die! Or someone sells something on eBay to raise money to bail you…

Sessions - Trump

Sessions (yellow tie) and Trump

Mitch McConnell

McConnell

I don’t see Mitch McConnell or Jeff Sessions granting any concessions to you…that they won’t give to President Obama. Or maybe they’ll turn tail and run….who knows?

Now why would thousands of you want to go to jail to make Congress LISTEN to you. How stupid is that? There is a much EASIER WAY to make Congress listen to you. It’s called an Election and it’s coming up in November. If you VOTE in the same masses that you are protesting with – then the political landscape will change…and Congress will listen.

Sending “thousands” of you to jail means building MORE jails which you oppose! Don’t BE silly…well, I know it’s HARD, but, really – DON’T be silly! Try!!!

We want MORE of this???

Trump rally protestsMaybe, you will cause a riot and Trump’s supports will go: “Just look at those free-speech killing Liberals trying to trump Trump. Let’s go home. I really can’t vote for somebody that Liberals don’t like!”

Please stay home! DO NOT go to Philly, (Philadelphia) the City of Brotherly Love, to DISRUPT Trump…

Do not interfere with Trump…LEAVE Trump alone.

Nothing you do will derail Trump. Everything you do may likely STRENGTHEN Trump. In addition, you will make Democrats look bad. Crazy commies! 

Republicans are already HANDING you the election gift-wrapped with a “you’re fired” bow! Why is it so hard for you to be quiet – and silent – and just watch!? Why must you always want to do? WHY? 

I loathe extremes, equally…be they anarchists on the LEFT or Separatists on the RIGHT!

Federal land

Mr. Soros, republicans claim YOU are funding the anti-Trump Protesters. If you really, really want to help…let me count the ways:

• I need a house. Nothing expensive. Just 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, biggish yard, could probably fit on your patio…
• Many of the “protesters” need help with their student/other loans
• Help some families facing foreclosure
• Come to Boston and pay for Summer Camp for inner city kids
• Housing groups desperately NEED funding to help tenants fight off higher rents and displacement due to gentrification
• Help build a pleasant housing complex for the working poor who are being displaced by sky-high rents
• Firefighters need new equipment
• Police need money to run stay-out-of-trouble programs for troubled kids
• Excellent, non-egoistic third-party candidates need funding
• Need I go on?

Rupert Murdoch (glasses) net worth: 12 Billion and George Soros…23 Billion

Far be it for ME to tell those “millionaires and billionaires” on Wall Street whose greed is killing America (are you on Wall Street Mr. Soros?) HOW to spend their money – but we’d all be BETTER SERVED…if you invested in the above…instead of chaos!

No hatin’ in the city of Brotherly Love, bro…

Murdoch's ranch

Murdoch’s ranch in California: $20 milliion

We’d ALSO be better off if Rupert Murdock hadn’t imposed his “outlook” (to put it mildly) on America (via Fox News) and ended up making half the population hate each other. I think Murdock and Fox News (News? ha!) are largely responsible for creating today’s GOP chaos. Let’s not have another millionaire or billionaire starting another trend. Think politics BEFORE Fox…

PS: Any groups want to protest that one person owns so much living space? I will fund those protests…shouldn’t cost more that $20. I can afford that…

Black Lives DO NOT Matter

to other blacks, with few exceptions!!! Or to news networks, unless it is to score points…

A shooting every 3 hours…in Chicago, since January 01!!!

About 110 people shot in Chicago so far this year…with 17 killed!

WHERE are the Black Lives Matter protests? Where are you, reporters? Hypocrites…!!!

Do you think that when you make the police impotent, because you get so UPSET that the cops rough up thugs, that THAT will make you safer – or buy you rights? I’d believe you more if you DIDN’T think that ONLY the police need to be held accountable for killing black people! Believe you more if you marched against the thugs in your neighborhood shooting at you – in addition to ONLY marching against police.

BLM1

Go ahead…keep shouting “Black Lives Matter” whenever police are the ones doing the shooting. Then stay quiet and hide when other blacks do the shooting…especially black thugs!!!

Think about the consequences to your actions? Well guess what?

When you videotape cops and hamper them from doing their work, and stay quiet and refuse to cooperate when thugs shoot up your neighborhood – then cops chill out…and you black protesters get shot by another black person who thinks that your black protester ass “lives” do NOT matter…

Yes, I know. Cops should not shoot unarmed people. Agree.

But cops have to deal with thugs everyday – thugs who often have NO conscience, and if you always want cops to handle thugs with kid gloves, then dream on.

And here’s to peace and security in your ‘hood!

 By the way, are the victims of these thug shootings suing any of these thug shooters for “wrongful death”?

Seems it’s a lot MORE lucrative for parents and loved ones when cops shoot their kids.

I can almost see this scenario:BLM

Child: Ma, kwante got shot. He got shot ma…he’s dead!

Mother: Who shot him?

Child: Jawon. Kwante and Jawon were arguing … and Jawon shot him…

Mother: Damn. You sure it ain’t the cops, boy…

Child: No ma, was Jawon. I saw him…but he didn’t see me…

Mother: Shut up boy. You see nothin’ – know nothin’ … hear me boy!

Yep…black lives matter! A lot!!!
