It’s a done deal. Less than five minutes ago, the House passed the Republican Tax Scam, and it’s on the way to their Fuhrer’s desk. For the way forward, we have a good head start, because the Republican Tax Scam is more unpopular than any tax increase has been. Moving along, we need to hang this albatross on the neck of every Republican lawmaker at every level of government, as well as every Republican donor and corporate criminal, whose greedy threats drove passage of this disaster.

We all need to get the GOP/Republican Party to become extinct through all the upcoming special elections
and including the 2018 elections. We must make them ALL extinct and not have them put on the ESA List.

A statement of what we want. Well, you know what. We lied. We only wanted that "ideal" distribution for the melanin deficient (and mostly males). It isn't that we have forgotten us. It's that we never meant it that we wanted it in the first place.

"Some day we'll see that movie and marvel that we all lived through it." No. We won't all live through it. Those who do live through it may see the movie and marvel.

"Hold on to your wallet." That isn't going to help when they pry it from your cold, dead fingers.

All of these ids that voted for this scam, VOTE THEM OUT when they come for re-election.
Trumps tax plan would provide the top 1% with 83% of the tax benefit.

I’m behind in the details of American policy in the past 3-4 days so I sat through Rachel’s stuttering video and endless pause signs while it downloaded the next bit, but I’ve heard and seen it all. I’m absolutely gobsmacked by how much worse this tax scam has become in the past two weeks. The first Senate version was an assault on the American people an their economy, this final Tax Scam to my mind can only be called a rape of the nation. The Republican 1% are destroying the whole country for a few moment of their own pleasure.

Sadly the Republican base of the 93% who saw the tax bill for what it was: a scam, will be fobbed off with a few pennies thrown on the night stand for their services and when they pay a little less tax next year will forget all about what lies in store for them in the next few years and vote Republican again. Money talks to all and that is why this tax scam is even more devious than it appears to be. Middle class Republicans in the poorer Red states will have some extra money to spend next year, Democrats in rich Blue states will have to fork out more for taxes. But those voters are of no concern to the GOP/1%. Those voters are already in opposition and resisting – no change there and they know that Democrats will have hard time convincing the middle class in Red states to vote blue when they hear those beggarly few cents jingle in their pockets. There’s nothing for it, Democrats must spearhead their resistance in Red states.

“only 7% of Americans think the Republican Tax Scam is a middle class tax cut” needs to be translated into votes for Democrats and a progressive agenda. The Republican Party needs to be buried in its own self-serving filth.

Great vid with Rachel.

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!! Your vote is speaking out!

This thing is polling at less than 30% approval. It will bring the entire party down. But the party doesn't care, they know old white men are on their way out no matter what and since virtually of them in Congress are 1%ers they gave themselves a nice raise, without raising their salaries, a multi year (or however long it takes to repeal, or find unconstitutional) bonus even after they're fired by their constituents. I read that Trump was furious yesterday (furious!) that people weren't celebrating his accomplishment. 83% of this goes to the top 513,000 families in the country. By 2026 everyone making less than $80,000 will have a large tax increase. And we should be celebrating that? This may even cost him his base because next year they go after Social Security Disability, Medicare and Medicaid and a lot of his base are alive only because of one of those programs. The most disgusting people to ever inhabit Congress and the White House. Liars and thieves. Celebrating their historic achievement, ignoring the fact that the four previous achievements of this size plunged the nation into depression as this one will as well. Idiots.

The United States will not take a back seat to North Korea, we have our own, supreme leader Kim Jong Trump or is it Donald Jong Un.

Together with his cohort of carrion white collar criminals are busy dismantling an America which was already in need of repair and is rapidly accelerating the deterioration. It is really difficult to bear witness to the wrecking ball of political activity going on with one violation after the other on what is left of American dignity, virtue, democracy, and ideals. Ugly America and the Ugly American has a new look.......sad....

The image for this post has become the new face of America.

I'd like to think that they've just bit themselves in the arse, butt, I think there's way too much of this ice-burg of deceit buried beneath the greedy corporate structure for the mainstream flow of information, and therefore, the devil's in all the details that power mongers play with and manipulate for their own evil doings. Electing Trumpelstiltskin was a fairly fatal flaw of our nation, and I hope and pray that those who's lives depend upon compassion and virtuous behavior can survive this slaughter of the common human. I smell an awful disease creeping across the social-structure. Republicans smell it to and are just too self absorbed to assist in the healing, they'd much too entitled to re-think the flawed system and go against the wickedness that is chewing up society. Stay strong, vigilant, and listen with an aware mind and an open heart. The only way for our world to be better is to maintain a higher consciousness in the face of evil. This is it, folks.
