148: Trump is going to bankrupt the U.N.

I will admit that the U.N. seems rather ineffective at times. There should definitely be some reform. The 5 member Security Council should be expanded to account for the changing world. It should probably have 11 members on it, consisting of current five plus another six depending on many other factors (India, Brazil, Australia, Germany, Turkey, South Korea) It should probably be better funded and have more peacekeeping forces.  Shutting it down would be disastrous.…

147: Trump gets to reshape our courts 

Hypothetically, he could appoint Judges that have solid convictions and won’t dismantle everything that made this country great, but his promise to appoint judges along the lines of Scalia means rights will be taken away. He could even try to pack the courts to get favorable results, like republicans are doing in other states like Arizona. This is Trump the authoritarian we are talking about.  Via Washington Post

Authoritarian Trump

I have been writing this for a few days now, and I was having a hard time starting it until the RNC released its Christmas message. The RNC Christmas message says; ““Merry Christmas to all! Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to…

145: Trump appoints an advisor on international negotiation

Donald Trump is appointing his long time lawyer Jason Greenblatt as Representative for International Negotiation. Here’s my problem. Isn’t this what the Secretary of State is for? What the hell is the point of the State Department then? This just looks like Trump is trying to consolidate power in the White House among people who need no senate confirmation.  Per Politico, “NEW YORK — Donald Trump’s chief Israel adviser doesn’t believe in briefing books or in sharing…

143 and 144: Trump still has twitter.

It astonishes me that Trump can still manage to do stupid things and say bad things on twitter on a somewhat daily basis. Half of it would have disqualified a normal president. Today alone, he has made multiple tweets. First,  he made two posts whining about Erik Trump closing his charitable foundation. Nobody is making Erik do this. He is doing it because he got caught trying to profit off of the presidential inauguration. My…

142: Donald Trump seems to be making a list and checking it twice.

So, maybe I am just reading too much into it but Trump seems like he’s trying to make a giant naughty list. America has lost its mind. First, his team asked the state department for a list of people working on Climate Change.  This was actually #132 on my list. Then,  in #139 on the list they asked the state department for a list of women’s programs and who was working on them. Now, he…

Hate is on display this Christmas

I’ve seen no less than 4 stories in the past few days that made me go “holy crap” because of the hatred related to this election season.  Donald Trump is to blame for giving all of these people cover 1. Carl Paladinos Wish List: Artvoice: What would you most like to happen in 2017? Carl Paladino: Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford. He dies before his trial and is…
