Trump Tax Info, Please

It's really not hard to believe that Donald was a millionaire at age 8. He exhibits plenty of characteristics of affluenza. What's grotesque is how he's used everything his father handed him to put pressure on poorer people, which he seems to continue to do today. As much as he brags about what he makes, shouldn't Donald be willing to brag about his tax info, too?

Believe Women

Allan Piper at Now This Politics has a great video up describing why we must believe women who say they've been sexually assaulted. In it, Piper points out that this isn't because women are more honest or trustworthy than men, but because the odds are that women WILL be assaulted sometime in their lifetime. Knowing that at least a quarter of women will be assaulted should make men more apt to believe a woman when she comes forward.

I Believe Dr. Ford

Is it really that much of a stretch to imagine that a president who openly admits to groping women, peeping in at young women in beauty pageants and faces his own accusations of sexual violence might want to appoint a Supreme Court justice who's done similar acts in his own past? Brett Kavanaugh's behavior being chalked up as a youthful indiscretion, that "boys will be boys," is an outrageous problem in our society.

Resist Today

You have to wonder if people who experienced times of turbulence in their nations like the U.S. is currently experiencing ever suspected that fascism might take over, that a dictatorship could arise. I'm not saying that's happening right now, but we are seeing unprecedented accounts of blatant rule violations, barriers to democracy and foreign intrustion into politics like I've never seen in my lifetime. It's definitely something that should be on everyone's radar. 

War on Trade

Tariffs, tariffs for everyone! As the U.S. and China hurl new tariffs at each other like they're engaged in a Nerf war, it's going to get very intersting to us in terms of prices and what this will mean for our economic future in general. Trump has listed over a thousand proposed tariffs on China and in return China is issuing 106 new tariffs on US exports ranging from soy to chemicals to cars.

Trump: It Wasn't Me

Shaggy's song "It Wasn't Me" always got on my nerves as a teen. I loved the singer but the song made such a fool out of both the speaker and his girlfriend that it really irritated me. She saw you, man! It was you! Well, now that Shaggy is finally admitting that it was, in fact, him all along (which makes it much more fun and hilarious), we have a new Trump parody to enjoy as well.

March for Our Lives

This Saturday, March 24, will be the day of the March for Our Lives event across the country. The mission is simple: the people demand that their lives become a priority over guns and that school shootings be stopped. It is outrageous when a politician can enact legislation against storing pets in plane storage one day after a terrible act yet still remain inactive on this issue after deaths every week.

Elizabeth Porter Doesn't Care About Children

You gotta love a struggling politician grasping at straws... or strawman arguments... except when you absolutely can't because they're being heartless beasts. Especially when said heartless beasts are given A ratings by the NRA. Putting money and your career before the lives of Americans, no matter what their age might be, is a sure sign that you don't need to be in office anymore.

Trump Didn't Sign on the Line

According to Stormy Daniels, she has no intention to hush, nor does she have the legal obligation to do so. 

The porn actress claims that Trump never signed the agreement the two had made to keep quiet about her affair with him. Honestly, we're all wondering why it only took $130,000 to keep her quiet in the first place; if you were going to get money from Donald Trump, you'd think you'd want it in the millions range.
