The servival of many species are at stake. Mass human migration do to sea level rise, drought, famine and desertification. This is not hyperbole nor hysteria. This is important. There is fantastic media available that can help you understand the earths natural processes and the impact of human activity is having on it. We have recently passed the 400 ppm level of CO2 (point of no return) in the atmosphere. With very little effort on your part you can learn the science of global warming. Read about the immediate, short and long term impact warming is having. Two things will happen; your going to feel like a dolt for not doing it sooner and really pissed for being manipulated by voices you trusted.
Now here it comes. You have helped to elect a man that rejects any established science he doesn’t agree with at the moment. Dismisses it out of hand. At least his VP has a bedrock conviction when it comes to the natural world. Unfortunately he has a religious over ride on his reasoning organ. He rejects all of modern biology, earth science, climate science, anthropology, archeology etc. etc. etc. The Donald has appointed people whose world view are aligned with his.
Gets worse. The republicans are directly responsible for the affordable care act. Whatever you don’t like about it you can thank them. The entire process was open and bipartisan. There were months of public hearings, public input and compromise. They poison pilled it and then not one republican voted for it. If the president hadn’t insisted on bipartisanship we would today have Medicare for all or something similar. Every other western democracy has some form of single payer system. But oh no, not us. We have two perfectly good single payer medical systems in place now. Medicare and the VA. ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE. Republicans did everything thing they could to make it go away. They said, out loud and on television, they would deny our president cooperation on everything. The result was our health care system. The dems knew it was flawed. They thought they would fix it but the other team used it for a political wedge issue. Under Trump they will dismantle and replace it with something with profit as the priority. Well there’s nothing for it now but to buck up.
With all the derogatory comments coming your way it’s no wonder you’re defensive. Well to bad. Goverment oversight of clean air, clean water, product safety, food safety, environmental protection and religious freedoms are being neutered. Donald engages in body shaming, belittling, humiliating and on and on. He is a textbook case of terminal narcissism. This behavior is not quirky, eccentric nor reasonable. It is pathological. What it boils down to is unless you are in the top 10% of income earners you will be worse off than you were. Worse, the prestige, leadership and influence will suffer greatly because this man and his cabal are totally out of there depth.
