Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain....
Keep an eye out for the upcoming #electricdreams on Amazon.
Often what is shown up front (Russia/Trump) is the smoke screen for the issues that cut the deepest. The Senate Republicans have been meeting in secret (actually) to craft their own version of Trumpcare/Ryancare/AHCA. A bill which the president at first called "tremendous" and now is calling "mean" and a "son of a bitch." When asked why they weren't sharing the bill (legislation that will in some way, a miniscule group for the better and most for the worse, effect every single American) a Senate GOP aide said "we're not stupid." Fair enough, stupidity could be forgiven.
And while these few men whisper in backrooms, the officer that killed Philando Castile is acquitted of any wrongdoing; serving to highlight once again that we have a two tier justice system, one that does little to protect the vast majority of the people, especially if you are a minority. The head official of this system is Jeff Sessions, a man who thinks we should be locking up more Americans for non-violent drug offenses while never thinking to speak to the intelligence community once about Russian involvement in the election (an investigation that is now directly focused on his boss). These (not just the man Donald Trump, but a government, both in matters of legislation and in justice, that serves only the few, only the already powerful; at the great expense of the people) are the issues that we must protest, organize and demonstrate against.
