Destroying America

This is a political post.

If you do scroll down….caveat emptor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I was a kid in the 1960s, it was routine for the rivers of America to literally catch fire due to so much pollution. Then the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was created, and signed into law by Richard Nixon, a Republican.

 

After four decades of hard work, our lakes and rivers are vastly cleaner.

Today though, the GOP is Hell-bent on destroying America. Little matters to the GOP but reducing taxes for the top 1%, and giving corporations whatever they want.

The GOP also believes that every fetus needs to be protected. But stopping kids from being shot to death while they sit in schools?

Oh, no.

And guess who Trump appointed to run the EPA? A man who has spent his life working to destroy the environment.

 

Last February 16, Trump signed a GOP-approved resolution permitting coal companies to dump their waste into the waters and rivers of America. How does this make America great? This will not only destroy the hard-won health of our rivers (OUR rivers) but will affect the health of people and animals living downstream. HOW does this make America great? How is such utter EVIL possible in 2018????????

 

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

God help America.

  1. I agree with you 100% Ross, we’ve worked so hard to clean up the environment and these morons come along and want to destroy it. Republicans are against regulations, because in their twisted world, this is bad for businesses and corporations. I happen to like regulations, I like drinking clean water, breathing clean air and having my meat inspected by the FDA. Hurry up Robert Mueller, we can’t wait much longer.

  2. Ross, as gay man with five grand nieces (ages two to twelve), I refuse to accept that they cannot swim in a clean Willamette River as I can today. This is in downtown Portland, OR.

    I will not let this be taken away from them.

    I congratulate the University of Portland. They have announced building a sports area and public access to the Willamette River; the shipping corporations be dammed. They give us the river!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Most of the people I know that voted for Trump did so because they did not want Hillary. Now how asinine is that! Hillary wanted to bring the world together, Trump is tearing it apart!

    Global warming is a farce, my butt. My brothers and sisters protested to save our plant and now they tossed it to the dogs for the love of money.

    Sorry everyone it’s America first, SAY WHAT! No more immigrants, no more helping the poor, social security, oh, that’s a gift now. Paul Ryan can kiss my ass.

    Trump has done nothing except try to undo everything Obama did, healthcare, DACA, Bears Ears, ect….

    What most people don’t know is that Obamacare was really a healthcare bill that was started during Nixon, then Heritage House rehashed it for the Republicans during the Clinton Adm. The democrats voted it down but when Obama came into office they brought it back as a show of bipartisanship. At least thats my understanding.

    I get so upset, over and over Trump starts his crap about DACA, blaming the Democrats when he is the one doing it!

    Obamacare is imploding! No, he’s denying funding to the insurance companies.

    Maybe they should replace the Statue of Liberty with a statue of Trump bent over with his ass sticking out telling the world to kiss it cause thats just about what he is doing.

    • Sorry for the language! Not a reflection of who I am. Venting! Maybe I should be like that guy in Ohio and form a blockade around myself. Stick my head in the sand. Give my mind and heart some peace.

  4. I don’t generally respond to your political posts because although I agree with them I’m Australian and somehow it feels bad to critisize another countries leader.

    But not only is he making America great again for the richest 1% of Americans he is dragging the world closer and closer to world war 3. And as America is traditionally a close ally to the US we will be a target too.

    He simply is totally unsuited for the presidency. God (whomever she is) help us all.
