Trump, Taxes, National Monuments, and the Rape of America

by David P. Greenberg

Trump confessed on Twitter and that’s dominated the news so far this week.  While it’s true, it isn’t the news. The news is that Trump landed a combination today. He gave the National Parks to the oil companies and the Bundy Family Militia. He did it front of Indians, telling them it was for their own good. That was the body blow. He got his tax-rape through the Senate. That was his over the top hook. And in an uppercut to the jaw, he got his Muslim Ban through the Gorsuch Court. TKO.

We’re throwing jabs, and he’s landing combinations. All we can do is stand there and look at the pretty birdies.

Do you get how bad this all is? Some of the most beautiful vistas in the world – turned into oil fields and coal mines. I grew up in Colorado. I’ve seen what strip mining does to the countryside. And the damage is permanent. Forever after the big money has raped Mother Earth of all her wealth, the land lies barren with gaping, unhealing wounds.

Taxes are only page one of 500, in the buttfucking of America. That thing is stuffed full of anti-abortion language. It robs some 13M Americans of their Healthcare. It’s a Christmas gift to Mega Churches and a wet kiss to Hedge Fund managers. Foreign bankers make out like fat rats, and it will explode the national debt. It won’t do a fucking thing to help the poor, the Middle Class, or “Main Street.” It won’t help small Mom-and-Pops. It will allow Republicans to eradicate all the New Deal “Entitlements.” So, we go back to a time when an on-the-job injury meant firing, and family indenture. Look that shit up. That’s the stuff the Labor Movement – Democrats – fought so hard to change.

The Muslim Ban? As bad as that is, that’s not the punch. The punch is, now we see how the last bastion of so-called “Checks and Balances” will fail to bridle him. Now we see McConnell’s plan of 40-years, in action. A SCOTUS – an entire Judicial Branch – malleable as putty, and deeply partisan. Justice is blind? I don’t think so.

So keep reporting on the FUCKING TWEETS, there, MSNBC. Don’t tell us what we NEED to hear as an informed, self-ruling electorate. We’ll just wake up tomorrow, broke, jobless, in debt, and standing in an oil field that was once a majestic canyon.

    Checks and balances, as in donor’s checks increase his bank balances (but we’ll never see the paperwork.)

    The Republic is dead, long live the oligarchy and to all you bunny hugger nancy boys and demmy crat girls, God gave us corporations the land and contents to use up and exploit and y’all damn well know Jesus is a comin’ back to destroy it and throw all y’all’s asses into the fire anyway.

    God bless.

    Wow. The guy who wrote this didn’t cuss at all… well… not much, anyway. He’s a cunning linguist.

    Nice job. I don’t think that anything can be done with trump until 2020 and by then the damage will be irreparable.

      I hope we don’t have to wait that long, then again, we likely will, unless the fat bastard drops from one too many Big Macs.
