Expanding our nuclear arsenal? Whatsoever for? The USA has the most sophisticated, far-reaching, dangerous and expensive nuclear weaponry in the world. Not only can we obliterate the Earth but we can extinguish the entire solar system in just the push of a few buttons. Yet Donald Trump isn’t satisfied. He wants more. What a terrifying, frightening idea that has the potential to end life as we know it. The human round ups have begun. Millions of immigrants are here illegally and working. Why are they here illegally and working? It’s simple. The USA won’t allot enough unskilled work permits but yet their labor is sorely needed in farms, factories, hotels, slaughterhouses, etc. The GOP alleges it is all about family values. Rubbish. Instead of enacting immigration reform and find a compromise to the 11 undocumented living and working here, it would rather break up families instead. In addition to the round ups and deportations, the GOP has slashed legal immigration to the USA. Perhaps in their haste to appear “strong” they haven’t given much thought to the economy. Who will fill jobs traditionally taken by immigrants, such as porters, maids, housekeepers, taxi drivers, nurse’s aides, cashiers, farm workers, etc.? Just saying, that’s all. Trump promises to be the greatest jobs president ever. Well, he didn’t say which way the jobs would go, hiring or firing. In some fields, the losses have already begun. Workers in the resettlement field are either losing their jobs or are looking for jobs. Trump and his GOP gang have curtailed immigration and cut funding to resettlement agencies. Trump’s plans to impose a 15% import tax will have disastrous results too. Instead of bringing back manufacturing jobs (which it won’t) American consumers will pay more at the check-out counter for food, clothing, and electronics. Retailers like JC Penny, Macy’s, and Sear’s, already struggling to stay alive against on-line competitors like Amazon.com, will feel the pinch because they’ll simply pass on the import tax to consumers who may hedge at paying a higher price. More jobs will be lost as consumers shop on-line. Trump and the GOP have attacked the environment too, wiping out protections against animals, rivers and streams. To show their bravado, the GOP will now let hunters kill sleeping bear cubs and wolf pups on federal land in Alaska. How manly is that I ask? Of course, as expected, Trump is showing his disdain for the Mexicans by demanding they pay for a wall between our two nations. Mexico said no way. Good for them. Don’t be bullied. But Trump wasn’t done yet. He rolled back regulations that protected us from high flying bankers, you know, the greedy avaricious men and women who brought us the 2007-08 recession based on worthless back mortgage backed securities? You surely remember when millions of Americans not only lost their homes but their jobs. In some cases they even lost their pets. Trump isn’t done protecting his friends, the ones who contributed to his campaign. He’ll increase private prisons, the places where rights are violated, riots occur and tidy profits are made for the owners. Then of course there’s more. Trump attacks the free press, Muslims, Jews, women, gays, public education, public television, and what else am I leaving out? He’s ripping our country apart and the GOP largely remains silent. I can’t sit by while Trump and company pick apart our beautiful country and I hope you won’t either. Call, write, fax or email your representatives in Congress. Don’t let him stain and sully everything that we’ve worked so hard to achieve. We don’t need a dictatorship in this country. There are plenty of them around. Resist and reject the Trump agenda.
