Even Republicans Can Admit The Truth At Times

Jan 12, 2018 | | 4 comments

And this admission of truth was posted by a Republican congressman. Salary comparison. This doesn’t even fully cover the disparity between the worker and the cost of things, and how it requires more work hours and more than one working person to have the equivalence of the single eight-hour-day paycheck buying power of a 1965 worker.

“1965: Worker: $39,500 CEO: $819,000 Ratio: 1 to 20
2013: Worker: $52,100 CEO: $15,175,000 Ratio: 1 to 295

Working class wages have stagnated for the past 40 years. CEO salaries and bonuses continually increase.”

Maybe it’s time for all new faces in the halls of Congress across this nation who understand this disparity from the workers’ perspective, and actually intend to do something legislatively about it? Something other than giving billionaires and their retiring political party members a tax break disguised as #maga for the people? Honestly, they could have invested into the workers a long time ago, if they had ever really wanted to!

Honestly, the billionaires and retiring politicians could have invested into the workers of the United States a long time ago, if they had ever really wanted to! It’s been no secret, this wealth transfer. Maybe it’s time for all new faces in the halls of Congress across this nation who understand this disparity from the workers’ perspective, and actually intend to do something legislatively about it?

“Don’t be afraid to argue with me, or tell me when I am wrong*. I won’t tell you how many degrees I have, how many languages I speak, how many years of schooling I’ve been immersed in, and how many books I’ve written. Why? Because, I’m confident in my shared statements, alone! And, if I’m proven wrong on a thing or two, then that is learning! I will adjust my views, and with great appreciation for the unexpected schooling. Alright, I’ve given my say.

  1. Conservapedia? Seriously? Taking alternative reality and alternative facts to a whole new level! It is an anti-Wikipedia knock-off Christian web site, pretending to be both “conservative” and “intellectual” in its material presentations. Just because you cite yourself repeatedly on end in your effort to confront and do battle with the “atheist” “liberals” that threaten your circular reality of thought – does not make Conservapedia any more than a magnificently large collection of religious opinion and pseudo-scientific thought! … But, on that note, it really is the go to place to get a grip on just how far bible belt resistance to science and social change will take you down the psychotic-induced rabbit hole. I … delude … you … not! Just a simple thought for those relying on Conservapedia, Fox News, Breitbart, and all the numerous other sources for information – give yourself an honest reality check for just one moment, please, before you imbibe.

    Open your mind and ask yourself honestly these four questions: Does everything about life and, especially, about humans have to revolve around the Christian Bible? Is it not just possible that this human written and redacted book, that is only a couple of thousand years old, could be a bad source for empirical knowledge of this universe we reside in? Is it really so threatening the thought that what you believe with all your “heart and soul” to be true, because it somehow by way of exegesis can be found in original source within the bible, might simply be wrong? Are you really willing to look at the demonstrable evidence for yourself, without demanding the conclusion of such inquiry must result to a biblical this, and accept the self-evident truth when the evidence repeatedly contradicts you? Just asking, in the hopes that some might actually listen.

  2. While federal agents raid “maternity hotels” in California targeting pregnant Chinese mothers on visa to America for prosecutory witnesses, while Trump spews racist comments and intentionally targets Mexican and African pregnant mothers for deportation, Trump branded hotels are regularly housing pregnant Russian mothers whose sole purpose for being in the U.S. is to give birth to their babies while here. So far, no raids have been conducted upon the Trump hotels and, it should be noted, that “birth tourism” is *not* illegal – it is, in fact, protected by the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This whole issue over foreigners coming to the U.S. to have babies who will have guaranteed U.S. citizenship is really a racist issue over the ones who have shades of brown in their skin color. #maternityhotels #birthtourism #birthtourist #Trump #Russia

    Russian ‘birth tourists’ are flocking to Miami, and Trump condos, to give birth to American citizens

    Giving birth in the U.S., and Miami in particular, is a status symbol in Moscow, NBC News reports, and the big draw is birthright citizenship. All children born in the U.S. are U.S. citizens. Trump-branded condos in Miami, especially its Sunny Isles Beach area — dubbed “Little Russia” — are especially popular birth tourism bases for women who can afford the rent. Some Russian birth tourism outfits tout the Trump name in their packages.

    Fourteenth Amendment, Section 1, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

  3. It is time for us, as a nation, to address the community information “bubbles” that so bitterly divide our society into “us versus them”. It is “we” according to the U.S. Constitution. The nation’s original national motto, until stripped away in the 1950’s (by a religious replacement), was “E Pluribus Unum”/”From Many, One”!

    “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. could have denounced American society as hopelessly and irredeemably racist. Looking around at the racial barriers erected by Jim Crow America, it was hard to see how any progress could be made without challenging the basic legal and constitutional principles of the nation. Yet King refused to succumb to despair, and instead insisted that the very principles of law and Constitution that seemed to be oppressive were, in fact, promises of freedom to all, without regard to race. As he noted in his “I Have a Dream” speech, the founding American principles were a promissory note to be cashed by all who lived here, not a rejection slip.

    Today, King would be appalled if he were to come back and witness the wholesale dismantling of the rich legacy for which he and so many fought and died in the civil rights movement. This noble struggle for equal rights has morphed into a race-grievance industry.”

    #maga through democratic representation and factual information based in evidence. Although some do believe this to be true, we were not actually created #inhisimage #inhislikeness as humans and as a society. This is simply an easy to verify historical fact! #MLK #MLKDay

    While many scholars and pundits will use the occasion of King’s birthday to rail against the enemies that have allied against black Americans, I want to challenge some of the debilitating myths that exist within black America, and to consider corrective action that can be taken.

  4. I wonder how many of #Trump’s “Rust Belt” rural American voters will be attending this “inauguration anniversary” party at #MarALago this weekend? … What? Still can’t afford the $50,000 ticket? Even after that generous #TCJA reform made for the poorest Americans? How’s that “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” going for you, by the way?

    “Stupid is as stupid does.” I heard that somewhere! #maga and whitely #inhisimage!

    Trump is planning a $100,000-per-couple anniversary party at Mar-A-Lago a day after the government is slated to shut down

    As the prospect of a government shutdown hangs over Washington, Donald Trump will travel to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Friday, where he plans to host a one-year anniversary of his inauguration that costs $100,000 for a pair of tickets. Trump is expected to arrive in Florida on Friday afternoon, just hours before a government shutdown will be triggered if Congress fails to pass a spending bill. Meanwhile, the White House doesn’t even have a full-time director running the agency responsible for coordinating a government shutdown.
