Trump: Our Homework Assignment
If only we could bill the billionaire bilker and his plutocrat friends for our labors.
Unfortunately, we are paying taxes to him (He-who-does-not-pay)...and them. April 15 will be its own "Day of Infamy."
We should be sending the Trump and the plutocrats a bill in the form of steeply progressive taxes to correct the shameful inequality that is to blame for so many of our problems.
Here in our part of Portland, a rapidly growing volunteer group has set out to help maintain stability in our public schools. There, thousands of immigrant and minority students (and their families) are vulnerable to Federal arrest, possible deportation and/or worse.
I fear we are but one terrorist attack, or Bannon-inspired agent provocateur attack, away Armageddon.
Meanwhile, back in the world of the old "normalcy," these same students are expected to put fear aside and do their own work: Homework.
In the new Trumpian world, we have our own "homework" to do. Our "home" is a shambles. Frankly, it has been for years. We have been grossly neglectful.
A reminder: when were you ever paid for homework? The price you pay is for not doing it or doing it poorly.
And the payment for cleaning our house of Trump and his ilk, is called FREEDOM. The price, as always, is sacrifice.
