SENATE DEMS SEND A LETTER TO REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP

“We write to express our concerns with the plans to use a fast-track budget process to repeal the Affordable Care Act in the coming weeks. Repealing this law will have immediate negative impacts on the people we represent and the economy as a whole. While we believe, improvements are needed to ensure high-quality health care is affordable for all Americans, we cannot afford to make a mistake that will lead to the loss of health care for our constituents.” …

MEANWHILE…

TRUMP WILL SIT FOR A 7 HOUR DEPOSITION TODAY

“Trump and his companies face scores of pending lawsuits, including cases claiming skimming of tips at his New York SoHo hotel, seeking refunds of millions in membership fees charged by his country club in Jupiter, Florida, and alleging that his security personnel assaulted protesters outside Trump Tower.

The deposition expected to occur this week stems from a suit he filed after prominent Washington chef Jose Andres backed out of plans to open a Spanish-themed restaurant at Trump’s new luxury hotel in Washington.”

    I just made a presentation to our Nation Group here in Sarasota, FL on ROI (Return on Investment) as the theme of the new administration. I included a banner with ROI in green, preceded be WA in red and followed by L in black. What do you think???

    ROI – Return on Investment – this is the core purpose of the Trump administration. Every one of the oligarch members of the administration has spent their entire life focused exclusively on how to maximize ROI.

    Australian Outback – Aborigines invested just enough energy to earn a return of enough food to live another day. No possessions, no clothes, no stored food, no dwelling. They lived in peace for 20,000 years. But as soon as you go to the coastal fishing grounds, there have been constant battles over fishing rights because of the much higher food ROI from a limited region. Modern economies and middle classes have been built on a tighltly controlled and regulated Capitalism. But periodically, despite government controls, the areas of highest ROI attract the nastiest, most ruthless people who become “king of the hill”. These monopolies maximize ROI by gouging the public and circumventing and undermining government laws and regulations that protect the General Welfare. These are the wolves that have been nominated to critical cabinet positions.

    Consider Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson, a member of the oil elite described in the book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” by John Perkins. They routinely take down democracies, assassinate leaders, enslave populations and destroy environments in order to extract oil – one of the highest ROI substances. But there is one industry that has an even higher ROI, and that is the Military Industrial Complex during war.

    We are in a race against time to awaken the public before we face a major financial collapse due to excessive profits and reduced benefits. Such a reversal of fortune would be used by propaganda geniuses like Steve Bannon to turn us against ourselves and other nations, rather than against our leaders who caused the problem in the first place. Left unchecked, this will result in the persecution of minorities and wars.

    Start by communicating by every means possible to every political persuasion, every age and every wealth – use social media, videos, church groups, demonstrations, etc. to point out the dangers of the two cabinet nominees who would most directly damage the well being of the 99%.

    Tom Price – Secretary of Health and Human Services, who has already introduced bills as a congressman that would cut trillions from Medicare and Social Security so that funds can be freed up to give tax cuts to the Oligarchs.

    Andrew Puzder – Secretary of Labor, who is against overtime and minimum wage laws. He does not need to change those laws to achieve greater ROI for his restaurant chains and those of his cronies, merely fail to enforce them.

    Financial strangulation of the Middle Class will reduce demand for goods and services and hasten the day when we face financial collapse. We must educate the public so that they know where to properly place the blame and not be swayed by post-truth propaganda. This education can be accelerated through financial support and broadened viewership of objective media – WSLR, Free Speech TV, The Young Turks, Randi Rhodes, The Guardian, etc.
