Yeah, right. And eating meat shows compassion for animals. And littering is good for the environment. And eating lots of sugar is great for weight loss. Somebody stop me!

Meanwhile, please sign this petition against increasing military spending.

I have a scripture for all the Evangelical Christians who voted for Trump and the Republicans. Jesus wept. John 11:35. I am a compassionate, caring Christian and because I am , I cannot in good conscience condone this horrific attitude. All people matter. Especially those in need.

CUTTING a destructive war-mongering fascist, xenophobic hate-filled war-mongering machine IS compassionate. Cutting Meals On Wheels is callous, cruel, cold, lacks any conscience, morals, ethics, and shows the attitude and behavior of the right-wing mindset of politics for what it is.

❤️Noted...This man who has achieved the top job in the land is obviously a shingle short of a roof. And while he stuffs his face with the best food, he is willing to let old frail people who cannot do for themselves go hungry or chew on a stale crust of bread. Where is the compassion in that?❤️

❤️Thank you Dandelion❤️

Personally, I think Trump has a hidden agenda to get rid of the poor, the sick and the elderly. He is prepared to do that by removing the social safety nets that make their lives easier like Meals on Wheels. I believe he is hoping that by removing these services these people will die.

Signed. By the time Trump is done the poor will be really poor. The rich will be really rich. The sick will be sicker. The U.S. will have no allies. A lot of people will be out of job. Our environment will be destroyed. National Parks will be desecrated due to his administration wanting to make money off the resources that national parks were meant to protect. His family will be richer since the American people are now footing the bill for his whole family for security and their lifestyle. And I could go on.

I will make sure to tell this to my 90-yr-old mother...Mobile Meals recipient, a staunch GOPTP voter, one of the core GOPTP voters they keep talking about. She always says that the GOPTP threats to Social Security, Medicare and other programs are just posturing. She'll just blame Trump and doubt it will open her eyes to anything else. Big Sigh. Thanx Dandelion.

Mulvaney, and the rest of the Rumpites, make these howlingly hollow claims, based on their belief that ANYONE must be into "Individual Responsibility," as if everyone is an island to him/her self. That miner in coal country, may, one day need Meals on Wheels. We all need to consider the needs of all of us, especially those who have never had an equal chance to thrive. We may al, supposedly, be equal before the law, but we are not living in a homogenized society, rather one in which some people have always been "More equal" than others...and some have been kept in that less equal status by the wealthy. The conservative point of view happens to be very self-serving, as can be seen in the hundreds of billions of dollars worth of tax breaks forth already wealthy, sitting in the wording of the Trumpcare program!

At least with Republicans we know what they can do; but, what do you do when Democrats act like Republicans? We don't need the Republicans or Democrats. They do not represent our values, unless you value bombing and droning other countries, pushing a greater portion of Americans into poverty, seeing that the rich keep getting richer, and your representatives not caring about what you have to say.

My Senators and Representative always send me form letters. Even though my Senators are both Democrats and my Representative is a Republican, I can't tell the difference between them when they write to me.

Donald Dunce will eventually be thrown out of office, when it becomes more than apparent
that he is psychologically unbalanced with serious mental problems. Those who were familiar
with his underhanded, sly, and cunning antics as a building developer, never thought he would
bull shit his way into the White House!! Now, he's going completely over-the-edge with his warped
policies and dismantling all the righteous programs that are in existence.
I have signed Freya's petition.
Thank you Dee-
