If Anti-Immigrant Wish List Not Accepted, Trump Says, 'I'd Love to See a Shutdown'

Sure they are, but the bigger disgrace of the moment is Congressional Republicans who accept Don as their party’s leader. If they don’t rally to push him out, then truly we will witness the dismantling of our institutions at our leisure.

No, Donald, that is not why the world is laughing at us. They are laughing at the fact that we managed to put such a manifestly unqualified person in the most powerful position in the world.

Amen!

Please don’t insult chimps by comparing them with the trump. They are intelligent, friendly, gregarious and caring, unlike the bottle blonde idiot.

Goes to show that pervasive corporate immorality controls both duopoly parties. The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is long past due.

Ditton –

What ever would give you the idea that there is a “honorable right” … ??? !!!

Legislating morality (let alone reviving it) is a tough call. Does the campaign you cite include a call to amend or abolish the corporation itself? In my view, that accounts for the majority of our malaise.

The only immigrants I would like to see prevented from entering the US or should be deported are the Russian Mobsters who helped Trump win the election.

oh, you caught that did you? :-))) you have sharp eyes :-))) I had my tongue stuck in my cheek while writing that, I’m glad to see someone can read, thanks.

It is wrong to focus this on Trump. It is Congress who are the problem here. They could concoct a bipartisan bill that could get enough support to pass over a presidential veto. They just will not. Or rather Paul Ryan will not. Showing Trump he is not all powerful would actually strengthen Paul Ryan’s position and perhaps usher in a spate of bipartisan policy making which every poll says the majority of the country desperately desires. Thus raising the approval of both parties in the public’s eye while diminishing Trump.
It is astounding to me how profoundly stupid the Rethugs are. Or is it all about 2018 primary elections and screw the country? Hmmmm

Thank you for countering the content while upholding the sentiment. Watching our own reaching beyond the subtle cesspool only strengthens the narrative!

I take your point to heart. It is increasingly difficult, especially when my head is exploding, to find descriptives to the POS or company in the WH that do not demean some worthy animal species that deserves our respect…

You can always tell when Trump lies because he moves his lips.

Yes, America is not like most other nations and keeps an international military force active world wide.
List of countries by military expenditures
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_military_expenditures)

America spends the most on the military than any other country in the world, almost three times as much as the number two military spender nation.

If the anti immigrant list isn’t accepted Trump will throw a tantrum. And how many of those immigrants are black and brown, which underscores the fact that Trump is a racist supremacist.

Got it now …

Thanks for your interest, sir.

The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival begins this Mother’s Day, 2018.
Quote:

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES:

We are rooted in a moral analysis based on our deepest religious and constitutional values that demand justice for all. Moral revival is necessary to save the heart and soul of our democracy.

We are committed to lifting up and deepening the leadership of those most affected by systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, and ecological devastation and to building unity across lines of division.

We believe in the dismantling of unjust criminalization systems that exploit poor communities and communities of color and the transformation of the “War Economy” into a “Peace Economy” that values all humanity.

We believe that equal protection under the law is non-negotiable.

We believe that people should not live in or die from poverty in the richest nation ever to exist. Blaming the poor and claiming that the United States does not have an abundance of resources to overcome poverty are false narratives used to perpetuate economic exploitation, exclusion, and deep inequality.

We recognize the centrality of systemic racism in maintaining economic oppression must be named, detailed and exposed empirically, morally and spiritually. Poverty and economic equality cannot be understood apart from a society built on white supremacy.

We aim to shift the distorted moral narrative often promoted by religious extremists in the nation from personal issues like prayer in school, abortion, sexuality, gun rights, property rights to systemic injustices like how our society treats the poor, those on the margins, the least of these, women, children, workers, immigrants and the sick; equality and representation under the law; and the desire for peace, love and harmony within and among nations.

We will build up the power of people and state-based movements to serve as a vehicle for a powerful moral movement in the country and to transform the political, economic and moral structures of our society.

We recognize the need to organize at the state and local level—many of the most regressive policies are being passed at the state level, and these policies will have long and lasting effect, past even executive orders. The movement is not from above but below.

We will do our work in a non-partisan way—no elected officials or candidates get the stage or serve on the State Organizing Committee of the Campaign. This is not about left and right, Democrat or Republican but about right and wrong.

We uphold the need to do a season of sustained nonviolent civil disobedience as a way to break through the tweets and shift the moral narrative. We are demonstrating the power of people coming together across issues and geography and putting our bodies on the line to the issues that are affecting us all.

The Campaign and all its Participants and Endorsers embrace nonviolence. Violent tactics or actions will not be tolerated.

Thanks for the information. I do not see a reference therein to addressing the question of whether the corporation itself should be dismantled or, at the very least, amended to reduce its destructive (but legal) power.
“This is not about left and right, Democrat or Republican but about right and wrong.” I agree with this, but who/what decides what is right and wrong?

I guess that’s funnier

The human being in all of us knows right from wrong: Dead children? Dying old people neglected in for-profit “nursing homes”. Nearly 50 % of Americans at or near poverty? The right vrs wrong IS the morality question that makes us all human beings. Check out the late, great, John Trudell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DE8dLR9IXM&list=PL49E205A9B56C37F3&index=51
