I’m watching a Congressional Hearing as the person speaking is telling how much Congress is prepared to Hunker Down and do the HARD WORK they were ELECTED TO DO.
THE GUY OR WOMAN HOLDING A JACKHAMMER . . . who works for a privately owned company, earning a few bucks in comparison to the ENORMOUS Political Salaries with CRIMINAL Perks, Partial Tax Free Income, Time Off, and Grotesque Pensions, who’s standing in the Middle of a busy, noisy, dusty, and smelly intersection, doing the work to keep the PEOPLE’S infrastructure viable so everyone can travel . . . IS DOING THE HARD WORK.
THE FAT-ASS POLITICIAN . . . FLAPPING his or her Lips in Overstated and Usually WORTHLESS Debates and Pronouncements, who somehow thinks it’s HARD WORK TO TALK, TALK, TALK . . . is to me – ALL-TELLING & REPUGNANT, for him or her to even think that what they do is HARD WORK.
THESE POLITICAL INGRATES . . . don’t go to bed at night worrying about having a JOB in the morning, since there’s no-one to FIRE them between elections. And even then, they’re almost FIRE-PROOF.
They don’t worry about paying the CRIMINAL COSTS of Healthcare, since that’s taken care-of for them by the REAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE, through their Taxes who don’t have that Luxury. The Politicians and the Bureaucrats don’t Panic about working long past their RETIREMENT YEARS, because they will “EARN” as much, or even more money in Retirement, than the REAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE earn while working, who pay for the Politicians’ and Bureaucrats’ Pensions with their Hard Earned Tax Dollars.
REAL HARD WORKING PEOPLE . . . Don’t get any portion of their Income – TAX FREE, but the Politicians do. And MOST HARD WORKING PEOPLE don’t get MONTHS OFF for Summer, Spring, Autumn, Christmas, Easter and Whatever other Occasions they can find NOT TO WORK.
Unless you’re a LOBBYIST, and/or someone paying MILLIONS of Dollars towards the Election and/or Reelection of Members of the House and Senate – you are more or less nothing but NOISE in the Background, until they need your vote on Election Day.
AND UNTIL SUCH TIME . . . as LIMITS or CONTROL is placed on the Influence of LOBBYISTS, the people who PAY THE ENTIRE SHOT for the running of the ENTIRE Government will always be BACKGROUND NOISE.
AND UNTIL SUCH TIME . . . as there are TERM LIMITS Imposed on the House and the Senate, Congress will Represent the LOBBYISTS, opposed to the People, who the Politicians Beg Every Election Cycle for their Vote.
Citizen Donald Trump PROMISED TWO IMPORTANT things when he announced his run to win the Leadership of the Republican Party . . .
1 – Build The Wall.
2 – Move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to JERUSALEM!
Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, PLEDGED to Build the Wall, and Move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to JERUSALEM!
President-Elect Donald Trump RE-PLEDGED to Build the Wall and to Move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to JERUSALEM!
During the Inaugural Festivities, it was still ASSUMED by all People, INCLUDING ME, who really pays attention to these things, and CAMPAIGNED HARD for Trump, who were excited, that FINALLY, the United States of America was going to LAY DOWN THE MARKER . . . that JERUSALEM is the UNABASHED CAPITAL of Israel & the Jewish People.
SO WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN SEVERAL DAYS AGO AND NOW . . . that all of a sudden, moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has become a SENSITIVE NEGOTIATION.
THERE IS NOTHING SENSITIVE ABOUT IT – AT ALL . . . Donald Trump made the PLEDGE as Clear as Glass, as the Republican Nominee, that if he won the Nomination, he would Campaign to Move the Embassy to Jerusalem. WASN’T THAT PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD AND SIMPLE?
Trump won the Nomination and Campaigned HARD WITH A KEYNOTE PROMISE that if he won the Election and became President of the United States, that he would Move the Embassy to Jerusalem. WASN’T THAT ALSO PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD AND SIMPLE?
AND AS PRESIDENT-ELECT . . . Trump reiterated that he KEEPS ALL HIS PROMISES. So what happened on the Road To Jerusalem?
THE FACT . . . that President Trump Surrounds himself with Influential and Successful Jewish People, and that his Favorite Daughter is Married to an Orthodox Jew, and that she herself has Converted to become an Orthodox Jew, and she raises her 3-Children as Orthodox Jews MEANS NOTHING TO ME, If President Trump DOES NOT LIVE-UP to his Second Most Significant Campaign Promise, which was to MOVE THE US EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM.
THE FACT . . . that Jared Kushner, President Trump’s Son-In-Law, and Unapologetic Jew and Supporter of Israel, who is one of the President’s Closest Advisors ALSO MEANS NOTHING TO ME . . . if the US Embassy is NOT MOVED TO JERUSALEM.
TO BACK OUT OF THIS PROMISE . . . I can see how President Trump can IMPOSE Tremendous Pressure on the Israeli Government to side with the President about NOT Moving the Embassy for some “TRUMPED-UP” Reason, in Exchange for some Special Benefits to Israel, to take the HEAT off President Trump for NOT MOVING THE EMBASSY.
If the US Embassy is NOT MOVED, and moved expeditiously as EVERYONE WAS PROMISED & EXPECTED, as far as I will be concerned, Trump will have lost a Supporter in me.
I will defend his Presidency . . . because there is nothing better on the Horizon. But if he doesn’t KEEP HIS PLEDGE TO MOVE THE EMBASSY, all I will see in Donald Trump will be a Presidential Bull-Shitter . . . whose word isn’t worth the Time of Day.
AND WHAT WILL THE WORLD SEE . . . Another American Political President Whose Word Is Worth CRAP.
The Clock Is Ticking . . . I Hope Trump Can Hear It. Tick Tock – Tick Tock.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
