Imagine Life Without Electricity July 25, 2018

Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

I continue to push for the idea of Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure for Future Generations especially on days like today when we are warned by our Intelligence folks that Russia did so back in 2017 and has even more capability now.  Homeland Security just reported that Russia tried to penetrate our energy power grids and left hacking tracks to show us they could have shut us down but didn’t.  Imagine waking up to no electricity, air, heat, water, trains, airlines, money and no jobs to go to because nothing works.

When I say rebuild I don’t just mean roads and bridges, I mean all transportation systems (air, roads, trains, buses, bridges, ships, etc…).  I include all our power grids, our water and food systems, our health care, voting and cyber security systems, etc.…

Perhaps instead of spending billions on more military equipment we should instead spend money on our infrastructure.  Instead of giving the top 1% of the wealthy a huge tax cut we should do even more infrastructure spending.

Just look at Russia and China, they’ve apparently come to realize that using the Internet is the best way to attack a nation instead of using the old fashion bombs.  Go after the nation’s electric grids which will put the brakes on voting systems, their government, Wall Street, American’s money, their water and food too.

Think about it folks.  Without our infrastructure (electric grids, ships, airplanes) our Military is up a creek without a paddle unless you want to go back to smoke signals.

Besides gaining the benefit of better security for us all, we gain new jobs for today and the future which will end up paying that new debt off.

What Have They Done? July 22, 2018

Exactly what has the Republican Party leadership done for Americans for the past 18 months?  They’ve cut funding for education, environment, cybersecurity department, the federal funding for those that need help paying for health insurance.  They are currently trying to stop forcing insurance companies to pay for pre-existing conditions.

The Republican Leadership, Majority leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker Ryan have refused to fix DACA or work on a valid immigration bill.  They are currently trying to get a vote on the President’s latest Supreme Court justice nominee.  His nominee is on record for thinking that Special Prosecutors, like Mueller who is investigating the Russia attack on our Democracy, are unconstitutional.

This same leadership promised to have an infrastructure bill to help create jobs, where is that bill?  They also said they would give us a much better and cheaper health insurance plan to replace the ACA .   Where is that plan?  It’s been reported that insurance premiums will be going up a great deal in August and September.   Perhaps the Republican Leadership is too busy trying to attack our Intelligence department, FBI and CIA to protect the President?  Or perhaps they have been busy defending the President’s standing by our Enemies North Korea and Russia, rather than with the U.S. and our allies.

Wait a minute.  I forgot.  They did do a few things.  They’ve past that massive tax cut for the top 1%.  The rest of us will lose that minor cut we got in a couple of years.  Oh, and by the way, experts are saying the tax cut didn’t do what it was meant to do.  They hoped that companies would reinvest, create more jobs or give wage increases.  It didn’t happen.  They just kept if for themselves as usual.  Now interest rates are going up again.

They also refused to even meet with Pres. Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court justice because he still had 7 months in office.  They wanted the “people” to decide that November.  This President has nominated and appointed one judge and is about to do another.  The Democrat Party says, the vote should wait till after the election, 3 months away.  They said, “Let the people decide”.  The Republican Leadership refuses to follow their own made up rule by waiting to see who will be in charge of Congress after November.

Lastly, they’ve enriched themselves while destroying the lives of others.

Are Women Going Overboard, Aren’t We Partially to Blame? November 18, 2017

Sitting back and watching all the latest news about men in Hollywood and government sexually assaulting women at some point in their lives. I doubt there are many women that have never been treated in such a way that they felt disgusted or angry about it later by their boss, co-worker, boyfriends or even some stranger on the street. I’m wondering if we women are partially to blame for those actions?
 
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mean that it’s ok for a man to abuse us if we dress improperly or even act a little too sexy on a date or whatever. I mean, men for generations have been allowed to treat a woman as their property, their toy thing, as somebody that doesn’t deserve to be respected. They’ve watched their dads and buddies treat women in terrible ways and women just giggled or tried to act like it didn’t bother them. To this day women will flirt with their boss hoping to get a raise or better job. Some are willing to be treated as sex slaves.
 
There are still wives that are willing to let their husbands rule them, boss them around and even rape them thinking that’s what God expects of a woman. She is there to serve man.

Democrat Wins Not Just About Trump November 9, 2017

I sincerely hope Democrats realize their wins in Virginia, New Jersey and New York yesterday is not just about voter’s disgust with President Trump. Keep in mind that Trump wouldn’t be where he’s at if not for the Republican Party’s support during the campaign and that same support he continues to receive on a daily basis from them now.
It’s been the Republican Party that’s pushed to take away health care from millions of people refusing to even sit down with Democrats to try and fix the ACA problems. To this day they hope to include a repeal into the tax reform bill.
It’s been the Republican Party that’s pushed to build a wall and separate us from the world. It’s been the Republicans that have allowed the President to commit unethical acts since taking office. It’s been the Republican Party that’s refused to really dig into how Russia invaded our Democracy and if anybody in the Trump campaign helped. We’ve seen 3 indictments so far yet they continue to call this “fake news”.
It’s the Republican Party that’s refused to stop the President from firing the FBI director and interfering with the justice department, clearly trying to obstruct justice even now.
It’s been the Republican Party that’s not bothered, except for 2 or 3, to stop the President from attacking our CIA, FBI and justice departments, members of their own Party, gold star families, military families, our allies, etc… They’ve actually supported in many ways the President’s actions.
It’s been the Republican Party that’s stood back and allowed the mentally ill to buy assault rifles that are being used to kill babies.
To this day Republicans sit back and watched the President try and profit from his golf center during a speech to the South Koreans –that’s against the Emoluments law. The Founders’ idea here to prevent foreign powers using gifts or money to corrupt the President’s loyalty to the U.S. That wasn’t the only time he’s done this.
So Democrats, don’t think this is all just about President Trump because it’s not. Don’t think it’s about their support for Democratic Party platform either. Voters are fed up with the President’s actions but they are angry at the Republican Party even more because of the way they’ve been refusing to listen to their employer, the American people and instead have been hurting them with their policies and support for this President – plain and simple.

Democrat’s Message: Rebuild America’s Infrastructure for Future Generations November 3, 2017

People are asking the Democratic Party what their moto should be for the 2018 and 2020 upcoming election.  I think what their plan should be is the idea of ‘Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure’ for Future Generations.

My definition for rebuilding our infrastructure includes everything this nation needs to drive our economy.  It would bring back companies that want to be a part of the new generation; it would create thousands of jobs, raise wages, secure our borders and secure our Democracy.

We usually hear politicians say we need to rebuild our roads and bridges.  That’s not however enough.  We need a complete overhaul of all our transportation systems; that include roads, bridges, trains, buses, airplanes and even our trucking systems.

We need to have a state of the art communication system.  There is no secure way to communicate these days, what can be done about that?  Our computers, laptops, telephone, cell phones and any device using microchips and/or the Internet need to be upgraded for security purposes.

One major hit to our electric grid could destroy us because we’d have no lights, no heat, no air condition, no freezers, no refrigerators, no cell phones and even worse, no Internet.  Imagine being Puerto Rico right now.  Nothing could get accomplished financially because we are so driven by our electric needs, even our cash registers use electricity.

Our food and water systems are so messed up it’s hard to tell what is safe and what is not anymore.  Just imagine some terrorist poisoning our water or our food or medicines, remember the Tylenol incident years ago?

Our security/communication systems are so outdated that we hear of a breach in some company almost monthly.

Imagine if we were to invest in those ‘Rebuild America’s Infrastructure’ projects, such as Roosevelt’s New Deal during WWII.  Every one of these new projects would require hiring more employees and buying new equipment to do those jobs.   What happens when those new employees are paid?  They spend their pay checks in stores, restaurants, etc….  Those places will in turn hire new people.  Everybody wins with these projects.

Yes it will increase the deficit, but research proves that investing in the short run always improves the value of something.  Future generations will receive the greatest benefits, we gain too however.  We’d have a booming economy, and with our new state of the art infrastructure we’d have a more secure nation.

 

Say NO to Republican’s Tax Cuts for the Wealthy November 3, 2017

Smiling, laughing, shaking hands, hugging and bragging about giving away $1200 in tax breaks to “middle class families” is Trump’s normal public relations act, he also used it during his, “You’re Fired” tv show. Say it LOUDLY, say it PROUDLY, say it with PRIDE, say it with EXCITEMENT in your voice, say it as though it were a THOUSANDS of dollars give away. Make it sound like everybody’s getting a HUGE tax cut.

 
Walk into a crowd of people laughing, hugging, giggling and having fun and you will suddenly feel like joining them. Walk into a crowd that is having a boring conversation and you will become depressed. It’s a PR stunt folks, don’t swallow it.
 
I’m sure there are millions of poor or those on the bottom edge of the middle class that when they hear this think THEY will get that pay check in the mail. Don’t be fooled folks. That’s for a family of 4 and breaks down to about $100 a month or a little over $3 a day. Depending on where you live that’s the cost of a loaf of bread.

Democrats Should Go Bigger, Demand More August 6, 2017

Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

President Trump and the Republican Party still have yet to pass any major legislation.  They have to pass health care repeal and replace, tax reform, tax cuts, build the wall or get an infrastructure bill passed.

The media is pressing the Democrats to come up with a slogan and/or strategy to take on the Republicans in 2018 election cycle.  I happen to believe the best strategy is to “Go Bigger, Demand More”.

What is it that irritates President Trump more than the Russian scandal?  He hates being out done, out smarted or out bid.

Imagine what he will do when ever he and his Party put together a bill that request a certain amount of tax reform and/or tax cuts and the Democrats immediate announce they want even more reform and more tax cuts but not for the top 2% of earners but for the middle class and businesses?

Imagine how the President would react if he and his Party ask for a specific dollar amount for infrastructure funding and the Democrats immediately announce they want even more money to be rebuild all our infrastructure systems including energy, transportation, communications, food and water and education systems costing millions more but creating thousands more jobs and a more secure nation?

Imagine how he would react if his Party once again announced another likely failed repeal and replace health care bill and the Democrats along with a select amount of Republicans announce an even better bipartisan bill?

President Donald J. Trump would go ballistic!  I’m betting he would counter offer on all those items!

And when the President produced his counter offers the Democrats would up the anti and increase their demands.

I’m guessing that the President would keep punching the Democrats because he’d want to claim that ‘he’ did more for the people then Democrats did.  He hates being outbid!  And because of his refusal to compromise he’d blow the whole deal, either nothing would get passed or Democrats would win because they’d be on record as having tried their best to get more middle class and business tax cuts, more training and more jobs all the while rebuilding ALL of our infrastructure systems for future generations and securing our nation as a whole.

Democrats slogan:

Rebuild America’s Infrastructure for Future Generations

‘Rebuild America’ for Future Generations! July 1, 2017

The media are asking Democrats what their message is to voters — here is my answer, it’s the same answer I’ve been pushing for years now.  I can only pray that somebody will finally take my suggestion and run with it:

‘Rebuild America’ for Future Generations!

Democrats need to concentrate on a plan that completely rebuilds America’s infrastructure.  Our message should be —-Rebuild our water, communication, health, transportation and electric grid systems.  Rebuild everything that will put our nation back to where we were decades ago.  Make the plan something similar to the WPA and the New Deal by FDR.

Rebuilding our infrastructure will not only create thousands of jobs, lower the unemployment it will require teaching our younger generation the skills they will need to build and maintain those new systems.  This plan will give our economy and our people the boost of confidence we’ve needed for a long time to lead the world once again.

President Trump implied that he would do something like this but it appears that his plan will only help the big companies make more money.  We need jobs for our local construction companies, etc…  Every State, district and county needs to visualize that dream.

Rebuilding our infrastructure, completely, will upgrade our security systems to where they need to be immediately.

Don’t Repeal — Finish What ACA Started July 1, 2017

Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

The reason ACA (Obamacare) isn’t working as well as it could have been is because President Obama delayed higher penalties by 4 years.  The penalty for 2015 was even low enough to pay rather than fork out more for actual insurance coverage.  It wasn’t 2016 that the penalty was so high that a person might decide to purchase insurance rather than pay such a high penalty for not having any.

For the 2010-2014 calendar years, the tax penalty was the greater of 1 percent of your household income above $10,000 or $95 per adult and $47.50 per child.

Which would you rather have paid $95 or $2100-6025 for health ins coverage yr?

For the 2015 calendar year, the tax penalty is $325.00 per uninsured adult and $162.50 for a noncompliant child.

Which would you rather have paid, $325 or $6228 for health ins coverage yr?

For the 2016 calendar year, these costs will increase to $695 per uninsured adult and $347.50 for a noncompliant child.

Which would you rather pay, $695 for NOTHING or $6433 for full coverage ins? (more…)

We stand for respecting fellow human beings. We stand for taking care of fellow Americans just as we would our own families. We stand for treating each human being with no preference just as we would our own children. No child is better than the other in our family. We demand that we all share what life provides us just as we demand our kids to share their toys.

Every human being deserves to be given the health care, the education, the safety and the right to pursuit happiness that is available in this world.

 

Do unto others as you would have them do onto you.
