Is anyone paying attention to the continuing damage being inflicted on the U.S. Constitution or are we all happily fighting each other over whether or not the sexual predator and economic terrorist donald trump colluded with Russian gangsters and puts his own country as risk while trying to kiss the ass of his current favorite dictator (other than himself, of course)?
Of course he does business with anyone who will increase his bank accounts. Of course he doesn’t give a crap about anyone other than himself or anything other than increasing his bank accounts. Of course he’s a sexist, racist, morally bankrupt, behaviorally dysfunctional buffoon who wants everything he can get his tiny hands on. Of course he’ll allow the U.S. to continue a rapidly increasing descent into third world status – as long as he profits on it. Of course he’s a gangster. He always has been. And, finally, of course he’s a sick, perverted sexual deviant with no moral integrity whatsoever.
Now that we have those issues out of the way, maybe we can start paying attention to the relentless attack on civil rights that has been in full force since the selection of the original cartoon president, Ronnie Raygun.
One area too often overlooked in the U.S. is the deteriorating rights of the human beings in our prisons. When you need to fight hard for basic rights such as access to clean water and basic nutrition, something is seriously wrong. If the criteria used for assessing a nation is the level of civility, we already live in a third world nation. We just need people to wake up to the fact that we have gone from a powerful nation with the potential to spread democracy throughout the world to a nation in which more respect is given to a wealthy sexual predator than to dedicated soldiers sacrificing personal freedom for civil rights and democratic values.
This has happened because we’ve adopted the twisted values of Capitalism, a belief system with the powerful attraction of a religion and the moral integrity of a demonology.
Hedge fund managers, who create nothing but poverty, collect more wealth than is given to entire schools full of children who need an education to get by in this incredibly dysfunctional society.
Wealthy fossil fuel executives receive billions of dollars of taxpayer money in tax breaks and tax subsidies to continue their suicidal attack on the environment.
Walmart pays their employees less than is needed to survive which puts another economic burden on the government in social services given to these underpaid workers. According to Forbes, Walmart’s workers cost U.S. taxpayers approximately $6.2 billion in public assistance. This includes food stamps, Medicaid and subsidized housing. This is according to a report published recently.
It would make more sense to put the economic terrorists in prison instead of the people attempting to create a more just and compassionate society.
Herman Bell has expressed remorse for his crimes. donald trump and the other obscenely wealthy “people” who manipulate the system have not – and probably never will.
