A Cancer on This Presidency
The most mind bending, mind numbing and monumental cabinet incredulity Republicans voted to fill for the EPA slot is Scott Pruitt, a foe of the very Environmental Protection Agency he is going to run but wants to eliminate. In his former post as Attorney General of Oklahoma he sued the EPA 14 times because of its regulations of fossil fuels and other pollutants. The nerve of the EPA to want to monitor these climate destroying corporate misfits and where they want to spew and dump the poisonous waste they create. So what that these corporate Cretans want to dump their waste into ground water, rivers, and streams that are the sources of drinking water for millions.
To want to abolish the EPA created by Republican Richard Nixon in 1970 and return this nation to one big Love Canal swamp makes my head explode. I ask again do not these corporate criminals have children, do not these science denying misfits have grandchildren, do not these know nothings have friends whom they do not want to see poisoned? Ruining the Environmental Protection Agency by eliminating regulations for companies that belch poisonous pollutants into the air and water results in the genetic damage of life. They are responsible for the killing illnesses of their byproducts? I thought they were in favor of fetal life but then again what is the "small" cost damaging the stuff of life when a fuel company can make billions while their families enjoy chugging down expensive chemo-therapeutic cancer drugs.
Does Trump not even care about his own progeny? Trump Tower is not going to protect Trump or his family. Mar a Largo, his so called winter White House, someday (maybe not that far into the future,) will be under water from the effects of climate change. I suppose he thinks he will be dead by that time and he will not care. What does one have children for if not to pass on something better to them and their descendants? I sometimes have regretted not having children but, in truth, now I know I made the right choice. I hand this nation riddled with corporate unregulated mayhem to others who will have to deal with our nation's crudeness, inhumanity, mendacity and stupidity. I wash my hands of the worry about that. Maybe my hands will be the only things washed clean and then again maybe not!
Yes, down is up and up is down in Trumpworld. What a fabulous idea returning to the radiation poisoning days of the Meryl Streep film "Silkwood" or to a nuclear power explosive risk reflected by Jane Fonda in the film "China Syndrome." Trump would do well to read Naomi Klein's book "This Changes Everything." Too bad our president does not read. Maybe one can get Klein's book in picture-book form.
It is an Alice in Wonderland world of the 1950's to which Trump wants to return to Make America Great Again -- NOT. As John Dean of Watergate fame said of Nixon: "There is a cancer on this presidency." I say there is a malignant Stage 4 cancer on the Trump presidency. He must be taken down by any legal means necessary and quickly if one wants life on this planet to not perish from this earth.
