Trump’s Biggest Foe
I don’t know how many presidents have been hit with talk of impeachment 30 days into their first term. I’d venture a guess that Donald Trump is making history here. And contrary to what he’d like to believe the problem isn’t the liberal media. It’s him.
As most of you may suspect, I’m no conservative. As most of you may surmise, I did not vote for the current president. BUT I pride myself on being an open-minded person. So, after Donald Trump won the presidential election of 2016, I hoped he would disprove our worst fears.
DON’T DEFLECT RESPONSIBILITY
Why is it whenever Republican commentators are questioned about the foolishness that their party engages in they respond with…”Democrats do it too.” I’m sorry, does that make you more or less right? Do you get a pass simply because you think you’re not the only one to act foolish? Hey! Foolish is foolish regardless of who’s doing it. And yes, sweetheart that applies to you!
Your turn! Tweet it out!
Dear House and Senate Republicans,
I’m sure you’ve heard the adage: Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Well, what world are you from? No, really. Where? Can I get there by boat? Is it expensive? Is it a secret celestial being orbiting the Earth? And why in the world won’t you go back there?
I know. I know. You’re not from some other world. You’re from here. The grand ole US of A. Our very own homegrown idiots.
I’m generally not this … disagreeable but I’ve just about had it. Seriously. I expect better behavior, better decisions from five year olds! Not that you would care considering no part of me is part of your core demographic. I happen to be black, highly educated, and a single mother so you don’t give a damn about what I think but I’m gonna tell you anyway.
On June 30, 2014 the Supreme Court ruled (5 to 4) that “two for profit corporations with sincerely held religious beliefs do not have to provide a full range of contraceptives at no cost to their employees pursuant to the Affordable Care Act.”
It’s a shame that the word choice has been sullied by the abortion debate because choice is central to empowerment—for women especially because historically we’ve faced great opposition when we’ve attempted to control the directions of our lives. Off the top of my head I can think of several examples.
