The Politics of Hurricanes - Luck Made Me Mayor, Maybe President if Harvey Stays in the Bay

The Mayor of Houston refused to issue an evacuation order while Hurricane Harvey developed into a category IV storm that threatened to dump 50 inches of rain on the region. At the same time the Governor suggested a voluntary evacuation for those that could.

Houston!  Houston!  A bayou city that is sinking like New Orleans. Elderly retirees were seen in their wheel chairs and up to their waste in water, waiting for a rescue operation.

If the Houston Mayor had been right (with a miracle) he would be hailed as a great leader in some communities in Texas and the USA and may have been looking at being the Governor or even the Presidency next (with no "birther controversy of course).  But Harvey did, in fact, hit like Katrina, and now they are underwater with torrential rains expected for days.

The Party Continues!  And they are singing in the convention center again.

The Violence of Charlottesville Must Pass (Soon!)

It is the politics of the divisivness of both Bush and Obama that are causing the current clashes over nothing but the meetings of the rag tag fringe groups of American white supremacists and their counterparts of the SEIU Rainbow Coalitions. Both groups apparently have too much time on their hands to gather.

Trump is clearly anti-National Socialism in is politics.  He is anti-globalization. He is a resident of one of the most functional progressive cities in the world, New York City.  And he has Jews and Jewish converts in his family.

It was the Muslims that teamed up with Hitler in forming the Aryan race against the Jews.  It is now an alliance of the Sunni and Shiite factions that is attempting to take over the world with the current politics of globalization.... More National Socialism!

Charging in cars and using flamethrowers will only kill the powerless.  Rhetoric and obscenity is tiring as well.  This will pass!

Trumped Care - Where was the Support in Washington for President Trump?

Where was the Support in Washington for President Trump?

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.

A medical system that is NOT single payer has been forced on the United States' population despite the fact that the majority did not want it. Andy Stern, with the help of the likes of groups like the Teamsters Union, minorities, and homosexuals have forced people off of employer insurance, and into a common insurance "pool" that puts physicians in charge of the general population itself, essentially without oversight. Even the likes of Bernie Sanders supports Obamacare for the reason that it takes the burden off of the employers!

State-required medical care, where anything goes according to a medical formula forced on every individual will create a slaughterhouse, discriminant or indiscriminate. (absolute care?). And yet the rate of inflation for medical care is through the roof! Another increase is expected this year.

With that environment, medical schools are the latest rage, replacing casinos as the way to pick up community and keep the rich in absolute power. Even universities of below average reputation are trying to get in the game of medical research, as if it's now "the only game in town".

The Republicans have moved on to areas of their agenda. Who is fighting for us now? Anyone?
