news forum / Re: Trump the GOP and Democrats. A new path or more of the same.
« Last post by Old Rabbit on June 18, 2020, 01:12:20 pm »

138 Days left and the supreme court puts a stop to Trump and his desire  to
remove Dreamers from the country. People who were brought here as children.
Many who have if sent to their country of origin, would have no knowledge of it's
culture or it's laws.  This act by Trump is opposed, even by his own party. But
if Trump and the GOP hang on to power, Trump will likely try once more to
remove these people. He or the far right doesn't care that these people
do much for our society, instead of being a burden, they do more for
the country than many citizens do.
 
I hope Hispanics see this  as more of a delay than as a win, because Trump
won't give up.  So they best vote for those who support Dreamers, and they
best not believe GOP members who suddenly support them now.  It's sad,
but the only people Trump and the GOP care about his their rich supporters.

The two decisions by the  supreme court this week shows just how important
the removal of Trump is. Because if he is returned to the White House, he will
over the next 4 years put 2 or more judges on the supreme court. An we can
be sure they will be hard right conservatives, who may serve for as much as
40 years. Hopefully if nothing  else I hope there are enough  vote  to flip the 
senate to Democratic  control.

It's time the GOP and far right are made to understand that it's immigration
that makes this country strong. No matter their race or color of skin. To do
this will require a lot of votes, because the GOP and far right are very
determined to hold power,. No matter how dumb or racist  their ideas are,
and the longer they hold power, the harder it will be to remove them.

Covid19 continues to spread no matter how much Trump and the GOP want
to ignore it. Trump claimed it's going away, he pressures GOP governors to
hide numbers of infections and deaths where they can. To not talk about
how full hospitals are becoming in their states. 

Trump even makes false  claims of treatments and how quick vaccines
will be available. There is  a report that Trump plans a October surprise
where he will claim a  vaccine is ready, even if it is not. He would not
care if it failed to protect  or made people sick or dead once he was
re elected. Think not? If you still believe his lies, I wish you luck, because
a lot of smart people don't. In fact  they call Trump a moron and a danger
to the security of the nation. If the GOP cared about the country, they
would have voted to remove Trump last January. A vote that would have
likely saved up to 50,000 lives with Trump gone.

The number of infections in the U S is almost 2,300,000  and over 118,000 deaths.

World wide the number of infections is over 8,300,000 and almost 450,000 deaths.

139 Days left, and Trump made a campaign style speech yesterday,
claiming  he cares about people of color. Trump lies when he claims to 
care  about his white followers much less people of color. Trump likes
to bring people to his speeches as props, hoping the public will be
impressed by them. His one black member of his cabinet is nothing
more than a prop when he needs a black man to stand with him.

Trump lied when he claimed Obama didn't do anything to stop police
harassment of African Americans. He knows it's a lie because he dismantled
Obama's work soon after he took office. Trump lied when he claimed the
Democrats didn't work to change policing, because he knows the GOP
stood against any efforts to do so during Obama's presidency.

Trump and the GOP have no real interest in stopping violence  by the police
against people of color. Yes they have a luke warm bill that politely asks the
police to be good, and not use choke holds on those they arrest. The Democrats
have a bill that makes choke holds illegal, but Moscow Mitch of the senate claims
their work is an over reach, because, in his opinion laws affecting police should
be up to state and local governlments. The problem with this is there is no
guidence. allowing each department to treat people however they wish. It's
just more of the GOP's bottom up way of governing. Which allows local control
by intemidation.

I agree sometimes it's best to let loacls make laws that fit their situation better,
but  it can allow for corruption, because powerful people use this to make laws that
benefit themselfves, and not the public.

Trump and his followers, along with the conservative media apparently want the
public to believe the corona virus is on it's way out, and no longer a threat to
the public at large. Even to claimthe reports that the virus is spreading is just
a Democratic ploy to make Trump and the GOP look bad.

This is nothing  but a  pack of lies that Trump and the GOP are pushing, because
they are worried if the  economy doesn't come back strong befor the election they
will suffer big losses. This shows they don't care if thousands of people get sick and
many may die. Just as long as they can hold power.

The GOP governors claime the only reason infections are increasing is due to more texting.
This is partly true, but in many states hospitals are starting to fill again. Some to critical
levels. Still Trump and the GOP do not want to close or limit business operations, even in
states like Florida, Alabama, Arizona, and Texas where hospitals are filling fast. Now Trump
wants to  start having big rally's again. This will increase the spread of covid19 even faster.
His first rally is in Tulsa where the virus is at it's highes levels. Trump has his VP out claiming
there is nothig to worry about, so thousands plan to go putting themselves and their fammlies
at risk, because few will wear masks.

The number of infections in the U S is almost 2,200,000 and number of deaths is almost 117,000.

World Wide the number of infections is 8,200,000 and deaths are nearly 450,000.

140 Days left and Trump claims to sign a executive order to put limits on
policing in this country. Well I see this is him playing politics, trying to
overshadow the Democrats. Well any order he signs will only affect
federal officers. Local and state are beyond his control. Even if he
wanted to do so. His order is supposed to start a national database
for police officers and their improper use of force. While this is a
great idea, who is going to enforce it? This and any other part of
his order is limited to federal police. Only the legislature can
create laws  that affect local and state officers.  I am sure Trump
will try to boast that he really cares about how  minorities  are
treated by the police. Though in the past we have heard him
encourage tough treatment of those arrested.

As usual  Trump makes a good speech, but it takes more than talk  to make
changes to a  bad system. He claims only he knows how to  fix what the
demonstrators want. One could ask why has he waited over 3 years to fix it?
I think the truth is he doesn't  really care. He spent more time bragging on the
police than how he wants to fix it. Then turned his speak to more of a political
rally than one about making the policing in this country better.  Even to lie about
 Obama and of course   didn't mention that he dismantled work Obama did
toward making policing better. All because he doesn't respect people of
color.

His talk about the economy does little for the people of color. So as usual
Trump never understands the their needs. He might be able to con white
people, but not African Americans, or others of color.

The main problem with policing in this country is the lack of accountability.
Many departments already have policies that supposedly put limits on
officers use of force, but they aren't enforced. When a officers uses
excessive  force, there is an immediate amount of protection comes
to play. Not for the victim, but for the  police officer. While police officers
need to receive fair treatment. Justice for those who are the victim of
improper use of force must take immediate priority.

Covid19 marches on. Most states are putting their economies  over  the
lives of their population. While businesses need to be open, Peoples
lives need to take priority.  Yes the public is tired of fighting this  virus,
but our leaders  must stand strong to control this virus, or it will cause
the  economy  to  suffer  in spite   of the wishes of the business 
community, Trump or the GOP.

The number of infections in the U S is over 2,100,000 and deaths are over 116,000.
While infection numbers are going up due to more testing, it is still spreading in
spite of the GOP or Trump wanting to  say otherwise. I fear this virus will be out
of control by fall. Mostly Due to lack of concern by many.

World Wide the number of infections are over 8 million, and deaths over 437,000.

141 Days left and the LGBTQ community have something to feel good about.
The supreme court voted 6-3 to protect homosexuals and transgenders from
being fired from a job because of their sexual orientation. There are still some
discriminatory action to be address, but this is a good decision, considering how
conservative the court is. It would be better to have legislation that protects sexual
rights for Americans, rather than depending on the supreme court, who's decisions
depend a lot on the judges political leaning.

Just another reason to flip the senate to Democratic control. The GOP for the most part
doesn't favor changes in lifestyles. Mainly because they are chasing voters instead of
human rights. People should remember, the senate is there to do what is right, not
just what the  conservative crowd or the president wants. The GOP  leader of the 
senate has lost sight of this and just thinks the senate should stand for GOP conservative
values alone.

Demonstrations for human rights continue across the nation. Demanding justice for people 
of color. To tell the government black lives do matter. Demanding the police respect the
lives of African Americans and other people of color. Some states and cities are making
changes, but will they hold police accountable when and if they fail to  follow the law. Failing
to do this, bad policemen will continue to do terrible things.

The GOP and Trump best come to understand this, or many of them will find themselves
out of a job in January of next year.

Trump did change the date of his rally in Tulsa Oklahoma from the 19th to the 20th,
claiming  he did it because he wanted to respects his Black friends holiday.  Now it is
rather interesting  that he said this, because in a interview he said he wanted it on
the 19th as a celebration. Of what, he didn't say.  I think most of us know how Trump
thinks when it comes to African Americans, and I doubt if many believe Trump is their
friend.

Covid19 is spreading, and in some places worse than it was in March when states closed
down their economies. I wonder when hospitals over flow, will states start making
restrictions again, or not?  Some may feel the corona virus is just a disease  affecting
the elderly, but I have news for them. People in their twenties and thirties  are dieing
from covid19. So when you join crowds of people without a mask, or keep separate,
your risking your life. Being young may lower your risk, but you can put your family
at risk if you happen to Cary the disease.

Some claim they are just risking themselves, and have a right to do so, but unless they
stay away from others. they would put them at risk, which they  don't have a right to do.
I have a hunch these same people would want to sue if they caught the virus while in a
business crowded with people.


The latest numbers of infections in the U S is over 2,100,000  and deaths are almost 116,000.

World wide the number of infections  are over 7,900,000 and over  432,000 deaths.
