Congress moves to repeal health overhaul
Roughly 30 million people will find themselves without health insurance in a week. Well, according to you trump voters, it's what they needed, right? If they didn't have it, they would have got out an got a job, right?
And more to come. A HUD sec, who while apparently a neuro surgeon, I wouldn't let diagnose a common cold. More than a couple who have said in the past the department they have been proposed to head should be eliminated. What fun for us. His sole qualification is he's owned a house. I'd like him run through a screen for Alzheimer.
We went from having an honorable, honest man to a huckster, rich because his daddy was, a demagogue in the worse sense of the word. And my, does he have his followers. Does he ever. Outnumbered yes, in the general election, by 2.6 million, but that's meaningless.
Trump is a geek, the classic definition being the guy who is outside the tent, biting the heads off chickens, to lure passerby's into the tent, to be fleeced. Lots of metaphors there. I wonder how long the GOP inside the tent will tolerate the nut outside.
Wait till we see who is his Supreme's nomination. Boy, one can hardly imagine.
I see 'One Day More' blog has a reminder for us to watch a PBS show, "A Nation Divided".
It's correct, and where oh where do we go from here........because I understand the divide. I understand the political differences that divide us. A nation, my friends, the readers of this blog.
We don't disagree. We actively dislike each other. In at least case of one reader, he hates me. Other's have the dislike that comes from me being a liberal. We, as a tribe, a region, a country have moved it steps beyond that. We hate each other. All because of this, Trump vs Clinton. On to liberal vs conservative, on to white vs other colors. etc. We can't talk about it, because our voices immediately go into scream mode. I have neighbors I no longer hear from, because I didn't vote for Trump.
I can think of only one other time it's become so apparent. 1856-59.
It's pretty fucking sad.
