That was sarcasm, by the way.
Where do you even begin?
McConnell not only said he would retire if the Democrats won, one of them and then did not keep his word. Republicans voted him BACK IN. Despite the Republican voters, wanting him out in the first place! I have always hated that guy.
This Trump Republican party, can’t even be gracious or Christian in Victory!
This video makes me so sad. #JohnMcCain and #RuthBaderGinsburg had to work up until their deaths because of the Trump Republican “Party”. These Republicans can’t even be gracious or Christian in Victory.
I know, I know…boring!lol
I was deeply depressingly disturbed to see over the pass weekend, how, for such a sports focused country. How we don’t really back our sports players.
Over the weekend billionaire and generally terrible human being. Gina Rinehart pulled out of her $15 million funding for Women’s Netball. The cause? Gina Rinehart wanted the Diamond Netballers to put her logo on their tops. Gina Rinehart is a terrible person, and she refused to acknowledge that her equally terrible father was a wannabe genocidal manic. So, she pulled the funding. One of the players on that Diamond Netballers is indigenious.
Gina Rineharts company is also an oiling company, and her company has also damaged indigenous land.
I was so disappointed to see so many Australians, being gleeful that she had done so. Calling the netballers “selfish” and “undeserving”. They really want the netballers to fail…but we are totally not a racist country, who cares about more about money. Just like what Jesus stood for.
When I started to look into more, I came across the article before. I knew how badly Peter Norman had been treated, even though he did the right thing and ASKED the other two black sprinters what he could do. Peter Norman was treated better by Americans, then his own home country.
The Australian sprinter whose career was killed by the ‘Black Power’ podium protest
As this has gone on, more has come out.
Apparently the only indigenous player on the team, and only the third indigenous player in 30 years, didn’t want to wear the logo. She had no problem with the rest of the team wearing it, but she didn’t want too.
So I am sure that by now we have all heard that Trump is probably going to call a “National Emergency” on this wall…
You know…The “emergency” that hasn’t been an emergency until Trump realized he wasn’t always going to get his way anymore. Nancy Pelosi is the QUEEN!!! It is so dire, Trump just had to go golfing and have some hambereders.
Have you ever had someone in your life pull a “fake emergency”?
I’ve been trying not to write anything political at least for another month or so, but today…today…I just have to say…
Does anyone else see any irony in Trump calling other countries (especially African countries) *sh%tholes? I thought all the money from the hunting and “conservation” that these Americans hunters (ie Trumps) were going over to do, were going back to the people? They keep using it a their big thing, that it’s really helping these countries? You mean, it’s NOT happening? I don’t know whether that’s just insulting or infuriating, considering the rate these hunters and people who want animals like Rhinos. The rate that are killing off the African animals at.
Someone should probably tell Trump as well that the people of Norway don’t want to leave Norway because it’s actually a really fantastic country to live in.
Does anyone else feel like we just need to restart with all the politicians? I know there are some good ones out there, but they are so few and far inbetween! Just get rid of them all and start again. Every time they do something good…They take 5 steps backwards again.
I feel really lucky and yet feel horrible for saying that I am so happy to be an Australian and not an American today…I have forbidden the topic of the whole political situation right now. I can’t vote, so I feel completely hopeless and helpless, that I can ‘t vote. However, I saw this very beautifully written speech by Dan Rather (Wikipedia) and I had to share it. I am going to say though I don’t think it’s something I want to deal with anymore, it’s so toxic for me. It doesnt help that I can’t even vote!
