Day 332 – Letter to Our Fellow Citizens: Science is Real. Stand Up For Truth and Facts.

Day 332 – Letter to Our Fellow Citizens: Science is Real. Stand Up For Truth and Facts.

Image from Eastern Washington University

My fellow citizens,

The CDC, under Trump, has reportedly decided to banish 7 words from its lexicon, at least when submitting the agency’s budget.  They include:  fetus, transgender, diversity, entitlement, evidence-based, and science-based.  This, of course, follows a pattern including the elimination of climate change data on government websites.

I think Arthur Caplan, professor of bioethics at New York University’s School of Medicine, put it quite well:  “We cannot replace truth with bias – the nation cannot survive on a steady diet of bullshit.”  Indeed.

There are many things to be worried about with Trump and his administration, but the outright denial of facts and continual lying are maybe the most disturbing.  He and his minions dismiss inconvenient facts, or facts that contradict the story they are trying to tell and the bill of goods they are trying to sell the public – or at least his base.  It has become the new norm.  Adding to this “diet of bullshit” is the Republican party leadership’s equally disturbing and calculating detachment from truth.  Never mind that economists of all political stripes say that the revised tax code adds $1.5 trillion to the debt and hands the upper echelons and corporations the lion’s share of its benefits.  Forget that the majority of people don’t like the bill.  The leadership maintain differently and say this is what the people want.  So too with the abandonment of net neutrality rules, which is universally opposed including by those that were the inventors – if there is such a thing – of the original internet.  And, again, which is opposed by the majority of Americans.  We’ve seen it also with the ongoing efforts at voter suppression based on non-existent voter fraud.  It’s enough that they say it exists.

It began with Trump saying he had the largest inauguration crowds and won the popular vote – if the votes of illegal aliens were thrown out – and has continued unabated.  Included in the “diet of bullshit” is a side dish of installing agency heads who, in several cases, viscerally opposed the very agencies they now lead.  They lie too and simply carry out corporate marching orders.

The net effect of all this is a national detachment from reality.  Trump, his administration, his base, and the blowhards and shills that represent it have created a false front based on invalid counterarguments with absolutely no founding – Kelly Ann Conway’s “alternate facts.”  This, of course, has made it easy to divide the country and keep it divided.  The denial of the truth and concomitant rallying cry of “fake news” has made it much easier to shove through an agenda that’s not merely one of political difference, but which is harmful to the very fabric of our society and form of government.  It also makes it dangerously easy to start a nuclear or conventional war and continue building a police-state.

When truth is what someone says it is and can’t be proved or disproved, then those that make the agenda and lead the nation are free to do what they want, because there’s no standard by which to hold them accountable.  Of course, this is rather ironic, given the far right’s insistence of the existence of absolute rights and wrongs that lay at the base of much of their thinking, for example the evangelical voice.  By sweeping away science-based and evidence-based standards, they throw open the door to “voodoo economics,” fantastical “science,” and religious mumbo-jumbo as legitimate national guideposts.  It’s one thing to disagree over a subject and factual interpretations/logical conclusions, but it’s a completely different thing to devalue truth, fact and science by denying the scientific method, logic and reason in order to win the day.

“Bullshit” must be called on Trump, his administration and the Republican leadership each and every time, and no legitimacy given to their perverted point of view.  You can’t argue with crazy, or with socio-political Luddites, because there is no agreed upon basis to resolve it.  With Trump it seems to be a mental condition.  With his minions and the Republican leadership, it seems to be a calculated tactic.  Our government and its leadership have drifted far from the moorings and, unless we act and speak out continuously, all we’ll be able to do is watch our world drift further out into the sea of insanity with us in tow.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

Day 331 – A Letter to Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Tell Lies, Lies, and More Lies. Repeat. Sums Up Your Job Pretty Well.

Day 331 – A Letter to Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Tell Lies, Lies, and More Lies. Repeat. Sums Up Your Job Pretty Well.

Ms. Sanders,

I used to feel sorry for you as I did for your predecessor, Sean Spicer.  He and now you look so pathetic and ridiculous standing at that podium twisting yourselves into knots trying to make your boss’s lies sound like truths, or dismissing them as if they don’t matter, or changing the subject, or attacking the media. Well, I no longer feel sorry for you, Ms. Sanders. Instead I view you as complicit in the big lies that President Trump is perpetuating on this country. You are guilty of these same lies yourself.

Here is a question that I have not yet heard a member of the media ask you: Aren’t you ever embarrassed by the words that come out of your mouth? Or could it be that you really believe what you are saying? If so, we will soon be saying about you what we are now saying about your boss: you, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, are unhinged, a kook. It probably can’t be your salary of $165,000 since your net worth is estimated at between $8 and $9 million.

Have you ever read 1984? It is a novel written by George Orwell about a dystopia that unfortunately has elements similar to your president’s vision of America, that same vision that you are guilty of spreading every time you step up to that podium.  Let’s look at two of the most recent similarities: on November 29, 2017 when you were questioned about President Trump’s tweeting unverified videos of alleged Muslim violence put out by a far right anti-Muslim activist  you said, “Whether it’s a real video or not, the threat is real.” You and your boss complain almost daily about so called “fake news” (the Russian investigation, etc.)  yet here you are saying that whether the video is real or fake, it doesn’t matter because it serves some end that Trump believes. Isn’t that really what propaganda is? Here is a definition in case you are not familiar with it: “information especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular cause or point of view.” In 1984, the Ministry of Truth has the responsibility of spreading lies and propaganda which serve the political ends of the government and turn people against a particular person or group of people. Doesn’t that sound like what your boss was doing by tweeting those videos: spreading untruths about Muslims in order to further turn people against them?

Here is another example of your incredible distortion of truth and execrable attempt to cover up for your boss: when Senator Gillibrand recently stated, along with some 50 other Congress women, that the President should resign given the 19 women who have accused him of sexual harassment, he tweeted soon after that Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions which she has begged him for. When that tweet was seen by many as containing a sexual innuendo and you, Sarah, were asked about it by the media, you responded that “only if your mind was in the gutter would you have read it that way” and that what Trump really meant (here you go again twisting and turning) was a reference to the corruption of the political process and of Senator Gillibrand herself. As for all those pesky allegations against your boss, why my goodness those have been answered by his winning the election. NO, NO NO, Sarah, that won’t do. Attacking the media, dismissing an unpleasant subject, changing the conversation, covering up, repeating lies over and over only further discredits you.

Your comment that your boss’s false statement about Bob Corker and the role he played in the Iran deal was “pretty factual” is similar to KellyAnn Conway’s infamous statement, “there are facts and then there are alternative facts.” Come on, Sarah, you must have learned somewhere in school that facts are facts and they cannot be qualified as “pretty factual.”

How can you defend lie after lie? According to the Washington Post fact checker, your boss has told 1, 628 lies as of Nov. 14, 2017. That is an enormous number of lies to keep track of; maybe it is just too difficult for you? Read what Adam Gopnik wrote in The New Yorker early in Trump’s presidency, January 27, 2017: “He lies, he repeats the lie, and his listeners either cower in fear, stammer in disbelief, or try to see how they can turn the lie to their own benefit.” Where do you fit, Sarah?  Gopnik goes on to reference 1984; “what Orwell got right about this kind of brute authoritarianism … was that it rests on lies told so often, and so repeatedly, that fighting the lie becomes not simply more dangerous but more exhausting than repeating it. Orwell saw… that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”

And so perhaps Orwell and Gopnik have the answer as to why you are complicit in these lies, in falsifying reality, Sarah.  You are not a kook, you can keep track of all your boss’s lies every time you take that podium, you don’t need the salary, you do not cower in fear or stammer in disbelief. Rather, what you do is to try to turn the lie to your own benefit, which is to keep yourself in power, in good standing with the liar who employs you and can dismiss you as easily as he did your predecessor.

Next time I see you twisting and turning, smiling as you repeat his lies, I will think of 1984 and the terrible bargain you apparently have made to stay in power.

Sincerely,

Letters2trump

 

Day 330 – Roll for Initiative, Mr. President

Day 330 – Roll for Initiative, Mr. President

Image from Scott Ogle

Mr. President,

When I was a dumb kid my friends and I wanted a war so there would be something to define us by, something to oppose beyond curfews and grades. We got our war and our villains and the price of this varied from person to person. Mine was to witness my father fall apart as he watched his friends die on television. He brought me a pin shaped like a pentagon from one of their funerals, and my mother had to peel me off a page of apologies I feel asleep writing. In the morning the apologies were still written on my skin in the mirror, backward but legible.

When I was a dumb college kid I held candles in big groups when things went wrong and imagined this helped anyone other than ourselves. We marched on the post office because a rumor of a rumor said the FBI had a room above the packages and Christmas cards, and we imagined our yelling was a statement that mattered and would do something for the people dying thousands of miles away. (Spoilers: it didn’t.) I dislocated a disk in my spine and a boy in my class gave me a pill the size of my knuckle, saying it was ibuprofen they pumped into them in the army so they wouldn’t feel pain until long after their bodies were screaming the message. I held very still to keep the disc in place and took his pills as he struggled in the new language we were learning to be angry. Surrounded by rich kids making peace signs, he wanted them to know his friends were dead too and to him the villains weren’t his leaders, they were us, for not knowing or caring.

I’m a dumb adult now and a soldier runs my DnD game. He’s almost a decade younger than me but his eyes are old and as he throws villains at us they are always singular and powerful actors, moneyed and loaded with more resources than they have a right to. The mercenary companies are always the good guys, the soldiers always comrades, their words always true.   I have challenged him on this but he puts my halfling back in her place. He wants us all to be brothers-in-arms and I say I don’t want friends, I want to find the villain and destroy him and he says good luck with that. He’s gentle but he means it. What we get out of this are friends, not victories or legacies. He says I should know this because of my dad. He acts like I should know lots of things but I was too dumb to learn them then and I am too angry to accept them now.

I still want to march in and drag you out of office and topple your statues and welcome back across the borders the people you kicked out. I want the arc to end with the villain defeated and bells ringing and people making children in the shadows because they no longer fear the futures they might be born into.

Yet I am being told by a pawn of the previous campaign that the villains never go away; at best they’ll be reborn into newer bodies, so I should content myself with companionship before an end he will put off as long as he can, to allow us to feel good about having tried.

You have ruined, sir, even the stories we tell ourselves to try and feel better about the lives we haven’t lived.

Sooner or later, though, you’re going to roll your natural one. It wasn’t the Muslim ban or the women you abused or the transgender men and women whose uniforms you tried to take away. It wasn’t North Korea or Jerusalem or net neutrality.

But the dice only has twenty sides, Mr. President. Sooner or later your number will come up. And when it does, and you fade into the viper pit of history, and some new multi-headed villain appears—you reborn, your fangs tipped with the poison of bitterness this time perhaps, or evangelicalism or even the seemingly benign sting of mediocrity—we’ll go after that monster too. With or without the blessing of our DMs, people younger but accidentally wiser than us, who know how it ends already.

Because I’m just a dumb halfling rogue, Mr. President. And that means I’ve got luck on my side.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

 

Day 329 – Nothing But a Lump of Coal for You, Mr. President. Welcome to the Naughty List. Again.

Day 329 – Nothing But a Lump of Coal for You, Mr. President. Welcome to the Naughty List. Again.

Image from Strange Kids Club

Mr. President,

We’re eleven days from Christmas. I’ve learned from recent news coverage that Santa’s naughty list seems to be getting longer. Each day, we get a new sexual allegation by women who have been groped, harassed and raped by men in power. These acts have crossed race, age, and politics, and they share the arrogance of powerful men who are convinced they can say and do whatever they please because of their status.

For decades, women and men, who held lesser positions of power, kept their secret to themselves because of fear and shame. They were gaslighted by their peers and society to believe that what they experienced was somehow their fault. Like they had asked for the unwanted attention and assault, and when they protested of how grossly they were treated they were not believed, laughed at, or threatened. So they mostly remained silent, while their predators remained in power, reaping financial rewards and prestige, and lording themselves over their minions in their respective industries.

Many believed your campaign would come to an end after the Access Hollywood tape surfaced. It didn’t, but now as the #MeToo movement continues to encourage more and more women and men to share the indignities they suffered, we’ll continue to see men of power fired, forced to resign or not elected to public office. Because as you’ve seen, “when you’re a star, they let you do it…You can do anything” no longer applies. There are consequences and we’re seeing it everywhere.

Enjoy your holidays, Mr. President, and be prepared for a tough 2018.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

Day 328 – Letter to Fellow Americans: Alabama Did It!!! Now Get Back to Work.

Day 328 – Letter to Fellow Americans: Alabama Did It!!! Now Get Back to Work.

Image by Michael Dougherty

Dear Fellow Americans,

Roll Tide!

Alabama did it! They turned up in the special election to fill Jeff Sessions’ vacant seat, and they voted against the alleged child molester and for Democrat Doug Jones. It is okay to take a moment and celebrate; after the hard losses we’ve suffered over the last year, this feels like a chance to catch our breath and smile once again at the sun.

But don’t bask in that Alabama sunshine for too long. Alabama should have been a slam dunk, not a nail biter. No Alabamian in their right mind should have the urge to vote for a grown man who believes that dating a child is okay as long as you have her mother’s permission, a man who believes that getting rid of the constitutional amendments after the 10th Amendment would “eliminate many problems,” a  man who was removed not once but twice from his position as chief justice on the state supreme court because of ethics violations, a man who clearly has no idea how to ride a horse.

And yet, this man somehow earned 68% of the white vote, according to CNN exit polls; he earned 91% of the Republican vote. If it weren’t for the huge turnout by African Americans (who turned out with even more force than they did for the presidential election in 2012), we’d be once again pulling out our hair and rending our garments in rage and disbelief.

So don’t you dare sit back, America.

Don’t you dare consider this race won. Because this race is for so much more than a single Senate seat. This race is for equity and equality for our People of Color. This race is for recognition and respect of the basic human rights and humanity of our LGBTQ family. This race is for safety and safe passage for our Muslim neighbors. This race is for the fundamental right to the autonomy of our own bodies for all women. This race is for the maintenance of our planet. This race is not a sprint. This race is an ultra-marathon, and we’ve only run a 5K.

A rising tide lifts all boats, America. So let’s make sure that this tide continues to rise—not because of global warming—but because of the sheer groundswell of social and political activism brought on by our renewed faith in the humanity of our country. We can and should and will be the country we know that we can be.

Time and tide wait for no man, America. We cannot sit back and simply ride the tide. The time to act is now.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 327 – A Letter to American Internet Users: Net Neutrality and How You Can Protect It.

Day 327 – A Letter to American Internet Users: Net Neutrality and How You Can Protect It.

Photograph by Tim Carter

Dear American Internet Users,

You probably put up with the high cost of your internet service provider, or ISP, (as many of us do) because you can bop around the internet at will. We’re Americans and we like our freedoms. We enjoy access to just about any website 24/7. And there’s the immediacy factor also; we don’t like to wait. The faster the internet, the better. Unfortunately, we Americans are also quite reactionary. We are often apathetic until things get out of hand and then we jump into action, too often too late. I am writing to you today to ask for your quick action on a topic that could squelch your much-loved internet freedom and speed: Net Neutrality.

This week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is voting on whether to change the regulation regarding Net Neutrality so that your ISP has the power to control your access to certain websites. They will also be able to slow the speed of your internet if they so choose. The commission is made up of three Republicans and headed by a Trump appointed Republican named Ajit Pai. It doesn’t look good for our free and speedy lives on the internet. If you are a fan of irony, the FCC has named the proceedings Restoring Internet Freedom, which is somewhere between ridiculous and sad.

My first request is that you get informed. I’ve included a few resources, below, and I suggest you search around for yourself also. When we start mixing technology, politics, economics, capitalism, government bureaucracy, and egos, the truth is elusive. From what I can tell, though, we have taken Net Neutrality for granted and if the FCC allows the ISPs to do what they want, they will. And it won’t be pretty.

A few resources:

I also have a couple actions you can take. The first is to respond directly to the FCC. Here are some fairly straightforward steps for that process that I found on Facebook.

1. Go to http://gofccyourself.com    (the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)
2. Click on the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom)
3. Click on “express.”
4. Be sure to hit “ENTER” after you put in your name and info so it registers.
5. In the comment section write, “I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs.”
6. Click to submit. Make sure you hit submit at the end!

John Oliver’s piece on net neutrality is worth the watch.

Finally, if you’re feeling a bit more revolutionary, go to the website called Break the Internet. If you scroll down on that page, you’ll find many ways to get involved over the next 48 hours in a phone call avalanche to get the point across to Congress.

I was an apathetic internet user like you at one time. I took the time to learn about the issue, which made me informed and angry. I’m participating in the push to keep Net Neutrality and I hope you will too. Thank you, ahead of time, for your efforts.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

Dear Alabamians,

Do NOT screw this up.  Vote for Doug Jones – the candidate who is NOT a pedophile predator, who does NOT openly flout the Constitution, who has NOT been twice removed as a judge for his lack of ethics, and who does NOT wave a tiny pistol around at his rallies while wearing a kid’s cowboy outfit.

We’re trying to get rid of the crazy in DC, not add more.

Day 325 – A Haiku For You, Mr. President.

Mr. President,

Words have been escaping me regarding your actions this week.  Of particular note was your unbridled support of a pedophile for Senate, your unilateral and irresponsible declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, your shrinking of Bear’s Ear National Monument and your endorsement and support of ridiculous new tax cut legislation.  What little shred of morality you had left leapt out the window as you continued to dodge responsibility for your past and present actions, served as a catalyst for violence and death to placate misguided ideologues, sold our national resource to uranium contractors and endangered current businesses and the future prosperity and growth of the American economy.  As such, I decided to write a haiku to express my concerns and confusion regarding the completely discordant statements and actions that you’ve recently made.  Antithetical to my nature, I figured fewer words may be better.

Moore terrible past

Touch. Feel. Country is for sale

End is coming fast.

Please do better next week by looking toward a brighter future and not embracing our darker past.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

 

Day 324 – Don’t Forget Puerto Rico, Mr. President.

Day 324 – Don’t Forget Puerto Rico, Mr. President.

Photograph from the New York Times

Mr. President,

There are so many things going on right now – the Russia investigation, the tax bill, Jerusalem, wildfires, sexual assault, racist remarks, heathcare, and on — but this holiday season, I wanted to bring your attention back to Puerto Rico. The island and its fate appears to have slipped your mind.

Your last tweet about the island was way back on October 13. In fact, the day before on October 12 you tweeted a warning: “…We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!”

It’s hardly been forever – just about 80 days – but for the Puerto Ricans still on the island and those that have escaped it, it certainly has felt like an eternity. Let me clue you in on the latest since you appear to be focused elsewhere.

The New York Times just did an analysis that in the 42 days after Hurricane Maria made landfall, 1,052 more people than usual died throughout the island. That’s almost 17 times the “official” count you have been touting as being so much better than Hurricane Katrina. The response to the disaster was not a success. It could turn out to be one of the deadliest storms in U.S. history.

Bloomberg is also reporting that according to one estimate “roughly two-thirds of Puerto Rico’s 45,000 small and midsize businesses have closed temporarily following the Hurricane.” As many as 10,000 of those aren’t likely to reopen. If you really believe in trickle-down economics, as your party has demonstrated most recently with the tax bill, these closures should be a huge warning sign of the fate of the territory.

As you may remember, the power grid on the islands is still in complete disarray. Plans are being developed to modernize Puerto Rico’s power grid to include an “array of fixes such as stronger electric poles, microgrids, and more renewable energy.”  The plan is expected to be released later this month and the rebuilding could take up to a decade with a price tag in the billions.

In addition, as American citizens, many Puerto Ricans have felt that their only recourse is leaving the island. According to CBS, more than 215,000 Puerto Ricans have arrived in Florida since October 3, when the state began counting. As many as 470,000 may move to the U.S. mainland through 2019, according to a report by the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College in New York.

So, since you’re clearly not interested in helping Puerto Rico forever, what can you do right now?

First, support Governor Rossello’s request for $4 billion in aid to help reverse the unprecedented damage caused by the storm. These monies will rebuild the infrastructure and bring stability back to the economy of the island.

Second, institute a temporary suspension of the Jones Act for five years, as suggested by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in a 2012 report. The Jones Act requires goods shipped within the United States to be carried on vessels owned, operated and built by Americans. Although your administration granted a 10-day waiver after the storm, debate remained about the potential benefits and harms of repealing the act. The Fed report acknowledges the many complications with repeal but a temporary reprieve could help clarify its effects.

Third, work with your cabinet and Congress to support the public schools, universities, towns and cities supporting their fellow American citizens who are arriving to start new lives. You can begin by creating programs for job training and placement, housing, mental health and overall assistance for states accepting the families leaving the island.

Puerto Ricans won’t need our help forever if we continue to help them now.

It would be ironic if the growing Puerto Rican diaspora in Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and most of New England forced to stay on the mainland due to your inaction turn out and vote in huge numbers on election day in 2018 and 2020. It may change elections in this country forever!

Hopefully, that may be the only forever that will matter.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump

 

Day 323 – Letter to the Right: Why Not Healthcare?

Day 323 – Letter to the Right: Why Not Healthcare?

Image from MyPostcard

Hello friend,

You have healthcare right? Me too. It’s pretty nice. Actually more than that – it saved my life from cancer and is keeping me alive. So it’s not just a nice to have, it’s a gotta have. An imperative. If I didn’t have healthcare for myself and my family, I would consider that to be a very serious problem. I’d be willing to bet you would too, no matter your politics. Can we just be honest? The only people who don’t value healthcare are young idiots who think they’re going to live forever. We adults know better.

This is why I think a national system that offers affordable healthcare to all Americans is a really good idea. Is the current Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare (they’re the same thing, but I know you knew that) the solution we need? I don’t know. I just know that quality healthcare for all Americans is a great idea. We’re not talking about free beer (another great idea), or free Carnival cruises (meh). We’re talking about something every responsible, sensible adult in the Unites States of the 21st century thinks is essential. Kind of like roads and emergency services and law enforcement. It’s just a really crucial underpinning to a long life full of liberty and the pursuit of happiness as each of us chooses to define it. How can this be bad?

Yes, I know it takes money to do this.  I also know that it takes money to run for Congress, and there are many heavy hitting political donors out there happily making a ton of money off the way things are. Don’t worry about them. They’ll be alright. They’re gettin’ their three-squares and then some. They’re probably getting excellent healthcare too.

By the way, I offer this opinion as a member of the one percent – the top part. I am comfortably wealthy. I am a capitalist. I like making money. No, really.

What about all the people who don’t deserve help? What about all the bums? What about all the illegals? What about all the people we don’t like, your no-good brother-in-law, for instance?

[sigh] Well, what about them? For every law, we have that benefits society at large – as most are intended to do – there will always be those who try to skirt them, try to work the angles, try to cheat. Ever break the speed limit? Me too, but hey, I had important stuff to do, I’m sure. We’ll fix the problems and stop the cheaters as the opportunities arise. What about the good people who need a leg up, a helping hand? What about your kids and your grandkids, who one day may fall on hard times and won’t have employer sponsored health insurance? If we can help them, shouldn’t we?

Some say Obamacare is a failure and maybe they are right. They’ll say that’s proof that it can’t be done, or that a national system won’t work for this reason or that. Really? May I remind you this is America? I have a smartphone with thousands of times more computing power than all of NASA during the Apollo space program. You know, the program that put men on the moon? See this video (so cool). I just don’t buy that it can’t be done. I do buy that we just won’t do it.

Societies tend to be most unified and most generous during times of crisis: earthquakes, hurricanes, depressions, world wars. We tend to look out for each other when the chips are down and resources are scarce. Why not buck the trend and help each other out in times of plenty? Times like right now.

Sincerely,

Letters2Trump
