Happy Holidaze

Few months present as many multicultural celebrations as December. Tis the season to be jolly... Really, people... Honestly?

This holiday season, with Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid Al-Fitr Eid Al-Adha, Ōmisoka and others used to be a festive time of the year filled by gatherings with family and friends. But for many Americans, it is going to be a time filled with sadness, self-reflection, loneliness, and anxiety.

There is a feeling of dread hanging over the US as many continue to work to pay taxes, while the rich get richer and to hell with the working class. These Holidaze may be accompanied by bitterness, envy, sadness, and tears which may last for many years. Meanwhile, we never learned anything about #TrumpTaxes.

US elected officials used to look for ways to trim the increasing cost of government and improve how it operates for the people and by the people. Sorry to say that is no longer the case. Wake up, people.

Our taxes may soon be rising, as US Senate GOP quickly rams a so-called tax overhaul package which experts say may add $1 trillion to our national debt over 10 years. The US government faces a shutdown and Net neutrality faces a clear and present danger... etc.

Now, with that behind ahead, you would think the Republicans, which are known as the party of free markets, businesses both large and small, lower taxes and less burdensome regulations would be leading the charges this nation needs. Instead, it looks like we're getting more of the same BS.

But there is something we can do to force our public servants to fear the coming years. Threaten to vote them out of office if they do not respond to your demands.

Make a list and check it twice before you reach out to your representatives. Contact them and let them know what you want and need from them.

Give The White House your ideas, suggestions, and demands.

Finally, speak softly, but carry that big democracy stick. VOTE

Trump has endorsed an accused child molester, slashed millions of acres of sacred native lands and won the right to enforce his Muslim travel ban while inching closer to war with N. Korea...Does this #MAGA ~ WTF?
