On January 30, the current occupant of the White House will give his first actual state of the union address. I anticipate that this address will be nothing but his normal narcissistic, disrespectful and normal braggart self. My concern about what will come out of this is that he will sit and blame the Democrats for everything that has not happened in his first year.
I don’t understand how a Republican president that has a Republican House and Republican Senate cannot get any work done and blames the other side. When the government was shut down for three days recently, you had Democrats to vote for the bill to keep the government open so there had to be some Republicans who voted against the bill, so how in the world can you blame the Democrats if the Republicans who hold control of everything cannot get their crap together. The current occupant of the White House has no business being in office as he continues to alienate other countries, he continues to alienate our country by promoting his bigotry, racism and ethnocentrism.
I guarantee you that he is going to take all the credit for the stock market, which by the way we were on the road to recovery long before he thought of running for office and long before he got elected. He will refuse to talk about any type of gun control even though we continue to have the shootings whether they be at schools, in Las Vegas whether there at a black church, at a rally in Charlottesville, VA. No matter where the shootings are this president will never back gun control.
DACA such an important piece of legislation that must be done. The individuals who are affected by DACA are in this country by no fault of their own they were brought here and have lived their entire lives here as citizens following the laws paying their way. It is only fair that these folks are kept in this country and allow a path to citizenship. The wall on the others on the southern tip of the country is still a very contentious issue, mainly because he insisted in the beginning that Mexico would pay for the wall. Mexico is not going to pay for all and now we are being told that we as taxpayers will have to foot the bill. Now I understand that we have folks this country who do commit crimes but not every individual that comes from Mexico is a drug dealer or is a murderer 95% of them that come into the United States do so because they want of better life.
I’m sure he will ask Republicans and Democrats to come together and work together to pass all kinds of legislation or he will continue to take his pen and sign executive orders which truly is not the right way for us to get things done tin his country. The problem with this country over the last 30 years, not just under this president, is that every piece of legislation that is written is not written clearly specifically for what it is supposed to be. Every piece of legislation is written and it has something from every single senator or congressman that they want for their district or their state just buried deep into a to a bill. And 99.99% of the time the House and Senate members do not take the time to read these bills which causes us more harm than good.
I would like to say that I will watch the entire state of the union address, but I cannot say that because I cannot stand this man in the White House. I think he is a disgrace, he is an embarrassment, he is dangerous and in my opinion he is unfit to be the leader of the free world.
This is what is in My Rattled Cage today.
