I could go on and on about why the good people in DC are screwing with our healthcare, but the post below says it all.

Let Them In, Mr. President

Dear President Trump

As we all know, the news coming out of Syria the last few days is beyond horrific. Innocent civilians, including young children were murdered by the Assad regime.

You have a choice now. Future generations will judge your Presidency based upon the actions you take.

Before I continue, I feel the need to tell you about the SS St. Louis. On the eve of World War II, the SS St. Louis left Germany for North America. Her passengers were all Jews suffering under the tightening noose of the Nazis. This was their last chance to escape Europe. The ship had to turn around because the borders of North America were closed. By the end of the war, half of those aboard were murdered by the Nazis and their accomplices.

Syria is one of those countries listed on your Muslim Travel Ban. While I have no problem with vetting potential immigrants to prevent a future terrorist attack, I can’t help but think of the millions that might have survived World War II if only America and other Western countries had opened their borders.

You have a decision to make. You can open our borders (with appropriate vetting) to those who need the sanctuary most or you can keep our borders closed and watch as more innocent Syrian citizens are murdered by their government.

Let them in, Mr. President

Sincerely
A Troubled Citizen Of The World

Equal Pay Day

Today is Equal Pay Day. In an ideal world, this day would not be necessary. An employee would be paid based on his or her abilities and experience, not based on their race, gender, family background, etc. Unfortunately, we live in a less than ideal world.

For every dollar that a Caucasian male makes, a Caucasian woman earns 83 cents. For the same dollar, an African-American woman earns 66 cents and a woman of Hispanic descent earns 60 cents. I’m not an economist by any stretch of the imagination, but if this gap was done away with, our country would be better off. Think of the earning power of women and the things we buy. Seventeen cents, thirty-four cents and forty cents may not seem like a lot of money, but over the lifetime of a career, that adds up.

Our President talks about equal pay and equal treatment for women in the workplace. Equal treatment in the workplace start with equal pay. But as usual, President Trump talks a good game and means not one word of what he is saying. In revoking the 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces put into place by President Obama, he is clearly stating women in the work place are lower than their male colleagues simply because they were born female. So much for using his daughter Ivanka as a mouth piece for women.

And that is why we need Equal Pay Day.
