Finally! A significant win against the insane alt-right of "our" nation. I admit it gives me some hope. gas x while pregnant But – The fact that a fired judge, a child-molester, a "God-first-over-Law religious loon only lost by less than 2%. . . Is just a bit more than horrifying, and reason for the sane among us to be very-very worried that the fast sliding of the nation into a manipulated corporate authoritarian oligarchy is still happening – The tax-cut benefiting only the oligarchy, the all Obama judges blocked but over 100 Trump judges seated (so far), the Citizens United decision of 2010 giving the corporate citizen far more political power than the human citizen, Trump is still the president, Pence, (a Dominionist God-over-law dangerous religious loon,) is still the vice-president, Sessions, (a proven and documented extreme bigot,) is still running the office of Attorney General, the same generals that have been purposely losing-for-profits are still directing "our" corporate wars all over the globe, the insane military budget just keeps growing, our rankings in health-care, infrastructure maintenance, social safety net, our students actual knowledge levels, infant mortality, longevity, Fox Propaganda is still allowed to refer to itself as "News", et al… Are all still being allowed to get worse, in some areas much worse, compared to our planet’s other nations.

In every single study of viewer’s knowledge of political reality, FOX’s viewers have been consistently shown to be less knowledgeable than even those who don’t watch or read any news or politics. The only way this could be true, that those who don’t watch/read any news have a better understanding of political reality, is if the FOX viewers are being purposely and consistently lied to. b games basketball There is no other explanation for this reality. This has been well documented for decades now, it’s not a secret, and yet we Americans have allowed it all to continue to this day.Wars for corporate profits, not liberty/freedom – Environmental laws passed to only protect corporate profits, not the environment – Regulatory laws shredded, not because of over-regulation, but rather to protect only the corporations’ profits – Corporations given more regulatory protections than even humans – The continual growing power of the MIC’s power and control of our nation’s budget to a point that has become, in reality, a sci-fi dystopian obscene horror – All of this, and so much more, has all been allowed – Allowed – By all of us.None of it is secret, none of it was hidden conspiracy, it’s not like we all didn’t know it was/is happening, all the way back to Gen. Smedley Butler, (the most highly decorated solider in American history,) who, in 1935, during his famous "War is a racket" speech and book, said, "The corporations no longer follow the flag, the flag now follows the corporations." We Americans, all of us, in sober reality, deserve what is going to be the final reality of our purposely destroyed Democracy, but the planet, the flora and fauna, and all the other peoples of the other nations of the planet. . . do not deserve it.We Americans, left, right, center, the apathetic non-involved, are all guilty for not really fighting back – As of yet we are not in the streets, en mass, we are not making the real sacrifices that are necessary to stop the oligarchical corporate fascist take-over and destruction of our Constitutional Democracy.

Of course these are the same people whose Facebook and Twitter feeds are replete with written and photographic expressions of the most vile epithets and threats directed at both Hillary Clinton and our current President com- bined with the most egregiously xenophobic jingoism I’ve ever seen publicly expressed. Oh, it was expressed, but before the Trump candidacy, it was never given permission beyond the kitchen or poker tables.

So what is a “bigot,” really? And why would I admit to being one? According to Merriam-Webster, the full def- inition of a bigot is, “a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: (M-W’s emphasis) one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred or intolerance.”

I am well known for having a wide open social media presence that invites people from all points along the political spectrum to participate in open, respectful debate. I think echo chambers are lazy and boring. I did not make the statement that offended my friend on anyone’s wall but my own. It was neither a direct comment nor a call out of anyone in particular. electricity trading If one chooses to take it personally, one needs to examine why.

Besides this, Trump is an utterly failed businessman. gas near me app The data points on this are clear and do not bear recitation. I have been a marketing and public relations consultant to top executives for two decades. I can tell you that no one at the helm of a successful enterprise has any time for frivolous media interactions much less an interest in produc- ing a bad reality TV show that does nothing to secure the brand equity of the executive or enterprise among key stakeholders.

The only people he admires and wishes to pattern his life and leadership after are authoritarian dictators. He has surrounded himself with campaign operatives who are scum sucking propagandists and advisors to the worst Afri- can, Middle East, and Russian dictators, oligarchs, and illegal arms dealers to Islamic terrorists, and this is just the stuff we know of.

For a man who claims to be for the working stiff, not only does he routinely stiff the small business owners he hires ―- because he can ―- he also hires very few American workers, rather he manipulates the H1B visa law to hire foreign workers to wait tables and manage his few domestic resorts still in operation while he ships all of his manufacturing to foreign countries like Mexico and China.

So, yes, I am proudly, obstinately and intolerantly devoted to my opinion that anyone who supports Donald Trump for president of the United States is one who supports his oft-stated disregard for, treatment of, and prejudices of people ― even American citizens ― who do not share his ethnic, gender and socio-economic status, and because he demonstrates overt and covert hatred and intolerance for them, and because he foments hate and violence against those people by his followers.

The U.S. youtube gas station karaoke Supreme Court decision to refuse to hear the Hedges, et al, case concerning Section 1021(b)(2) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which permits the military to seize U.S. citizens and hold them indefinitely in military detention centers without due process, means that this provision will continue to be law. It means the nation has entered a post-constitutional era. It means that extraordinary rendition of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil by our government is legal. It means that the courts, like the legislative and executive branches of government, exclusively serve corporate power—one of the core definitions of fascism. It means that the internal mechanisms of state are so corrupted and subservient to corporate power that there is no hope of reform or protection for citizens under our most basic constitutional rights. It means that the consent of the governed—a poll by OpenCongress.com showed that this provision had a 98 percent disapproval rating—is a cruel joke.

These two rulings, (not to mention money-is-free-speech, free-speech-zones, corporations have more rights and protections than actual humans, only the children of the very wealthy can afford to go to college, the largest prison population in actual numbers and percentage of population in all of written history, the largest wealth gap in history, etc, etc, etc,) have officially ended government of, by, and for the people, and has forcefully legitimatized the fact that we are now an oligarchical/plutocratic fascist totalitarian corporately ruled state.
