Remember the Bush-Cheney Golden Oldies: "Mission accomplished;" an attack coming in "the form of a mushroom cloud;" "your problem is living in a reality based universe — we create our own reality." Their lies and pro-business anti-environmental and anti-human health policies cost money and lives across the planet. It is still difficult to understand how they garnered enough votes to occupy the White House for eight years.

Fast forward to the Trump Administration promoting "alternative facts" and building policy on the basis of lies while dedicating themselves to suppressing science and destroying our environment, our health and our health care for profits. Undergoing an accelerating and expanding investigation suggesting the campaign-involved collusion with a foreign entity, they promote the interests of family Trump and fellow billionaires rather than hard-working Americans.

Even though the Trump campaign advertised that this would be the result, still, a few individuals cannot see the self-serving incompetence and ignorance that is this White House. Some are even still willing to defend their corruption and insanity.

It’s difficult to imagine that anyone could make the Bush/Cheney years seem less destructive and ruinous of the reputation of the U.S. than they were, but number 45 is achieving it.

It is funny how people can overlook the boo boos of their own party and just see the errors of the opposition. EVERY party caters to those that the owe politically. We need people that are not in debt to any special interest group. But to just call names and hunt for material to gripe about is not helping anyone but the haters. Every president has had naysayers. No one is perfect. No matter what you do someone is going to be ticked off.


So it says a lot about the ignorance of the American voter to continually make the call of 'vote the bums out' only to continually elect more bums or the same bums. We get the President we deserve.
