If bombing Syria and Afghanistan boosts Trumps popularityexpect more. Blitzing and shelling is the GOP modus operandi. The Republicans are tied to the military industrial complex. Ronald Reagan went into Lebanon, but lost 241 Marines to a suicide bomb in Beirut. Reagan needed to boost morale. He invaded the little island nation of Grenada purportedly to save 600 American medical students. The UN condemned the invasion as a violation of international law. The list goes on with HW Bush, GW Bush.
Here it is 15 years later and Trump is trying to bully allies into his Cowboy fight in Syria, Afghanistan and possibly North Korea. Are Americans ready for WWIII?
Trump is crazy. Generals love WAR not peace. Boys and military toys will get our kids killed to avoid Russiagate.
Power certainly did not devolve to the people under McCrory and the NCGOP. The right wing was too busy undermining the US and State Constitution. The NCGA moved to enshrine itself forever without a public hearing or input. Roy Cooper must challenge Phil Berger and Tim Moore and the rest of the GOP cabal. They are kleptocrats who are supporting a boorish, uncouth autocrat who believes he can set policy with Tweets.
How is it the country clubbers, gated community billionaires and trust fund babies got to use the word "elitist?"
The real story-- the so called job creators (GOP) did not want to spend money to train workers for the digital age. The bosses wanted low-wage workers. Didn't want to pay health or pension benefits. Owners closed factories. Left town for overseas.
Complacent workers in rural areas did not take advantage of government programs to retool, learn new computer/digital skills. The revenue base of towns dwindled as rural kids moved to cities for jobs. They didn't want to stay down on the farm, work in coal mines, steel mills.
Trump's pick for Labor Secretary Andrew Puzder, CEO Carl's Jr, couldn't be more anti-worker:
Speaking to Business Insider this year, Mr. Puzder said that increased automation could be a welcome development because machines were always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, theres never a slip-and-fall or an age, sex or race discrimination case.
Donald pledged to drain the swamp. A BIG, FAT LIE. He's tapped three people from Goldman-Sachs. What about Wilbur Ross, Commerce nominee?
Ross owned a coal mine that was cited for more than 200 safety violations before an accident killed a dozen workers, and is a member of a secret Wall Street fraternity, where, clad in velvet slippers, he sang show tunes mocking poor people.
Once Trump voters find out they've been bamboozled maybe they'll start voting in their own best interests.
Pat McCrory lost. The NCGOP and party leaders refuse to accept that decision, the will of the voters. The republican lawmakers have gotten it into their evil little minds they can just grab power from Tar Heels. What the NCGA has done is suppress the vote by making up stuff and attempting to block Roy Cooper from doing his job as the incoming governor.
The Executive Director of the NCGOP, Dallas Woodhouse, who is a bully and serial liar, screams that Democrats moved the goal posts on conservatives back in 1976. Say what? This is 2016. A new day. A different time. But the right wing does not play well with others and believes it can pay bad deeds forward.
Stripping Cooper of powers, standing on the necks of voters, holding illegal sessions with little or no notice--will be challenged in court. The right wingers hope Trump's attorney general pick will chose party over the PEOPLE.
My grandmother would have me to cut a switch and give it to her when I misbehaved. I believe it is time for me to introduce Pat McCrory and the NCGOP to my granny.
Dear Joyce, you have my permission to put Dallas up for adoption. Christmas is coming in November and there will be a lump of coal in his sock and he'll be unhinged.
I recall a story from 2014 about people dressed as clowns who terrorized residents of San Joaquin Valley, California. http://abcnews.go.com/US/mysterious-clowns… So, it could be copycats.
