Now that the great memo crisis is over, or nearly so, the politicians and the pundits have moved on to Rob Portman. What Gen. Kelly knew and when he knew it. Once that runs out, in a couple of weeks, maybe three, there will be some new Trump generated tempest to take the focus off of the real problem, which is money.
The great disparity of income between the wealthy and nearly everyone else in the U.S., as the oligarchs tighten their grip on power, and the absence of anything resembling a reasonable limit on campaign financing which is the only way to regulate the runaway greed that currently has the nation by its throat.
It no longer matters if this current president does what he does intentionally or whether he’s a burrito short of a full combo-plate. Either way, the effect is the same. We are all his victims with the nearly full support of the Republican Party. Most of those who don’t support the Donald, have decided to jump ship and not take another run at office. There are 34 Republicans leaving the House and Corker, Flake and Hatch in the Senate. It’s that bad.
Urge your friends to vote for Democrats and Democrats only in 2018. Please. The Dem Party is far from perfect. I was no fan of Hillary Clinton, and was nearly made ill by the DNC debacle, but they are still far better for the country than this current Republican Party, which will be noted by history for its extreme negligence.
There could be a third party somewhere in the future but for now our house is on fire and the Democrats are the only party in sight with the potential for putting it out. Regardless of what any White House generated memo might say.
