The Supreme Court is the highest court in the land. However, that does not mean that I as an individual citizen has to agree with every ruling.
Though it is not written in stone, it is a tradition that all Presidents release copies of their tax returns and/or financial statements. Since you know who won the election nearly four years ago, he has come up with every excuse in the book as to why the paperwork has not been made public. Today, SCOTUS ruled that the tax returns have to be released to prosecutors in regards to the cases building against him in New York.
On the surface, the decision by SCOTUS (including you know who’s choices to join the court) seem like a 100% victory. It’s not, the fine print says that much. But it is a giant step in the right direction. The big baby is not immune from prosecution and must conform to the laws like anyone else.
The other ruling concerns the constant determination by the right (and the current administration by extension) to deny a woman her right to contraception. Instead of directly denying a female employee access to birth control, they are leaving it up to the prerogative of her employer.
If you can, imagine the following scenario: a pregnant woman goes to her doctor for a routine checkup. She is told that there has been a change to the fetus. It is no longer medically viable. She could carry the pregnancy to term, but there are risks in doing so. She could also end the pregnancy, but her employer does not believe in abortion. If she chooses an abortion, she will have to pay a potentially outrageous sum out of pocket because of her employer’s beliefs.
Does that sound right to you? It doesn’t sound right to me. From my perspective, the only thing my bosses should be worrying about is my ability to do my job. My personal life (medical decisions included) are frankly, none of their dam business.
Wearing a mask, whether voluntarily or because of a mandate, is not the same as being murdered by the Nazis. Wearing a mask can save lives during this pandemic that is not a deep state Soros plot to steal your soul if you have one.
When the Paycheck Protection Program or PPP was enacted a few months ago, its purpose was to help America’s small business owners stay open and financially afloat during the Covid-19 pandemic.
It was not designed to give millions to large corporations whose bottom line would remain unaffected. But someone was not paying attention as to who received the money. According to a news report from this morning, Kanye West was one of the recipients of the PPP.
Now granted, the money was meant to keep his clothing line company going. While I understand that, it seems that the money was given out with little though to who actually need the loan vs. who didn’t need the loan. Who actually needed the funds was the local Mom and Pop stores, not the big companies whose profit margins have a healthy amount of zeroes attached to them.
As I see it, this is just another reason to vote you know who out in November. There was clearly little structure and little planning to ensure that the funds did not go to those who did not need it. Just like every decision this administration has made.
As we get closer to November 3rd, Americans will have to make a choice as to who we want leading us for the next four years. Though it may seem like a simple choice, it is a choice that will help to determine the future of the nation.
You know who is becoming desperate. Some of the who blindly follow him are starting to open their eyes to the truth. He is unfit for office in every way possible. In a certain sense, he is not as dumb as he appears to be. But then again, a smart leader knows when to listen to others (especially when they disagree with that leader) and when to listen to their own judgement. He refuses to listen to anyone else (with the exception of those who kiss up to him) and claims to know everything he needs to know about being President.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I am so ready to refer to Joe Biden as President Biden.
Harmless is defined as something or someone that is inoffensive or not likely to cause harm.
In one of his most recent speeches, our not so brilliant commander-in-chief claimed that 99% of all Covid-19 cases are harmless.
Try telling that to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who are grieving the loss of loved ones due to the virus. Or, to the 50,000 people, who in the last day, discovered that they are now sick.
One might describe the common cold as harmless. It lasts about a week, you take the OTC medicine of your choice and it goes away.
Covid-19 is not harmless. According to projections by the CDC, nearly 150,000 lives are expected to be lost by the end of the month. Millions are unemployed or underemployed. The economy (one of the major factors in choosing who to vote for in a Presidential election) is in the toilet.
This is all due to a used car salesman man child and the sycophants around him who are more concerned with saving their own skins than doing what is right for the country.
If we know what is good for us, you know who will be a one term President. If we don’t, then I am truly afraid for the future of the United States.
P.S. Does anyone else find it deliciously ironic that Kimberly Guilfoyle is just one of several of his campaign staffers that contracted the virus?
I wish today was an ordinary 4th of July. But as we all know, 2020 is not an ordinary year.
If nothing else, the protests following the murder of George Floyd and the issues created by Covid-19 has revealed the cracks in American society. If none of this was happening, it would be easy to ignore them. But one cannot ignore long standing issues if they are in your face 24/7.
We are at a precipice. We can either put our rose colored glasses on or we can finally start the process of becoming the nation that we could be. This is not the first time we have been at a crossroads. We can move forward as country. We can heal and accept that collectively, we have made mistakes. We only need to step up to the plate and learn from the past.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing this weekend, have a happy and safe Independence Day.
For a millennia, men have controlled everything about women, our bodies included. It is only in the past century or so that we have fought to take back the control of our bodies that was ours in the first place.
Yesterday, SCOTUS ruled in favor of blocking an anti-abortion law in Louisiana. In a nutshell, the law said that doctors were prohibited from performing the procedure unless they had admitting privileges at a local hospital.
On the surface, the law does not sound all that bad. It sounds almost preventative, waiting for the day when something goes wrong and an ambulance would have to be called. But, looking at the fine print tells another story. It closes all but one of the remaining abortion clinics on a technicality, putting the lives of the female residents of Louisiana at risk.
What is interesting is that Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal members of the court. In doing so, it is my perspective that he is looking to the future of this country. It is a future that true equality exists between the sexes and women are finally seen as fully-fledged human beings.
It is only a small step. But when small steps come together, they can lead to major change.
Logic and common sense are concepts that are usually timeless and universal.
For example, common sense says that when you get into a car, you buckle up. If G-d forbid there is an accident, the seat belt reduces the chances of severe injury and death. As Covid-19 continues it’s stranglehold on humanity, some idiots refuse to wear a mask. A mask, like a seat belt, save lives.
Enter Randy Rainbow’s newest video, COVER YOUR FREAKIN’ FACE! – A Randy Rainbow Song Parody.
Using the song Put On a Happy Face from the musical Bye Bye Birdie, Rainbow uses his trademark humor to remind Americans (especially you know who) to put on a dam mask.
Personally, I don’t think that the concept takes a rocket scientist to understand it. But then again, you know who did proclaim himself a “stable genius” at one point.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I a hoping that this nation comes to its senses and votes for Joe Biden in November.
The main role of the President of the United States is to protect the country and her citizens. His or her personal needs are second to the needs of the country. In our history, most American Presidents have at the very least, understood this concept. I can’t say the same about the man who currently holds the title.
According to a damning report in the New York Times, you know who was advised that Vladimir Putin and the Russian government has been paying bounties to to Afghan terrorists to kill American troops. Instead of supporting and protecting members of the American military as he has routinely stated, he is letting Putin walk all over him.
Putin is not dumb, by any stretch of the imagination. One does not hold onto power for twenty years without learning a thing or two. He knows how to play the game. The problem is that you know who does not know how to play, nor does he listen to those who have.
If this report is true (though knowing him, it probably is), then you know who is a traitor. He has sold this nation out for his own needs. What is worse, he has sold us out to someone who is using him to bring the United States to its needs.
If I were to list every reason that you know who should not be re-elected in the fall, this reason would be number one. He claims to be a grade-A salesman. Instead he is being sold a bill of goods that is putting us all in danger.
