This weekend left me flabbergasted … “Trump’s ‘executive orders’ last week, how he has overstepped his authority, shredded the Constitution yet again, and all for naught, for nothing he did is likely to help very many of the people who need help the most. He is all pomp, no substance, as is proven by the fact that rather than sign these orders in his office as would have been appropriate, he took them to his country club to sign them in front of a group of rich, old, white men sipping wine who applauded enthusiastically, for they have no horse in this race.” … please take a look!
I’ve been doing some thinking about Trump’s ‘executive orders’ last week, how he has overstepped his authority, shredded the Constitution yet again, and all for naught, for nothing he did is likely to help very many of the people who need help the most. He is all pomp, no substance, as is proven by the fact that rather than sign these orders in his office as would have been appropriate, he took them to his country club to sign them in front of a group of rich, old, white men sipping wine who applauded enthusiastically, for they have no horse in this race.
Today I happened across a piece written by a freelance writer, Joel Mathis, writing for The Week, that I thought covered the matter well, so I am sharing it here today.
Donald Trump’s impotent tyranny
Everything is a show with Donald Trump.

VOTE PROUD THIS NOVEMBER
I was never a detailed political observer. I will never forget 2015 … ‘marriage equality’ became the law of the land. That was under the administration of the first ‘black president in American history’. How I miss those days when I didn’t know the names of cabinet members, reporters, journalists … those were the days, my friends.
I was able to legally marry the love of my life!
OUT AND PROUD!!
Times have changed. It’s been said … you have to vote as if your life depended on it because it does. For us LGBTQ folks, this more real and our rights depend on this outcome!
VOTE PROUD is the Non-Partisan movement to inspire the LGBTQ+ community to register and vote.
We must combat voter apathy among all marginalized Americans.
~~Published August 10, 2020~~
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with ‘Vote Proud’ an organization dedicated to increasing voter turnout in the LGBTQ+ community.
Special thanks to Barbra Streisand and Bruce Roberts for your collaboration!

250,000 bikers in the small town of Sturgis, population 7,000 … no masks, no social distancing! What could go wrong? …
“These people are risking a lot of lives for their politics. They’re risking lives for Trump, lies, and conspiracy theories. Herman Cain did the same thing. Ask him how that worked out.”
Bikers For Trump are just like all organizations for Trump. They should all merge under one name. Stupid People For Trump.”
The annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally kicked off this week in South Dakota and there are fears the event will be a “superspreader” event for the Trump Virus.
Sturgis is a small town with a population of around 7,000. The biker rally has brought between 500,000 to 700,000 people to Sturgis in the past though this year, it’s estimated to be much smaller at around 250,000.
Even though Donald Trump’s Tulsa hate rally was a disappointment of 6,000 attendees when they were expecting 100,000, that’s still too high of a crowd to be mingling in during a pandemic. Ask Herman Cain. The 250,000 currently in Sturgis is even worse as masks and social distancing are not required. In case you’re a Republican, 250 is greater than 6.
Apparently, most bikers are conservative in their politics. I think it’s safe to assume any attending Sturgis this week are pro-Trump. They’re not wearing…
