His first act as the World’s most powerful leader? Trump Stamps Out History And Science as His First Offering To The World.
Newly elected president Trump went straight to the government’s web site, not literally of course. Word is, he does not use a computer. He obviously divested an underling with this urgent mission. whitehouse.gov. deleted nearly all mention of climate change.
I suppose he has not seen Ken Burn’s documentary, “The Dust Bowl”.
Trump is violently opposed to suggestions that mankind can have any control or impact on the Earth’s conditions. He may have squads out at this very moment searching for copies of the documentary and burning them. (Kidding so far).
Man has created droughts. And right now the mid west, our bread basket, is watered by underground taps that have a life span of fifteen years. But that will be someone else’s burden.
Of course, if people did notice there was a drought or climate change, real estate would crash in certain areas. Who pays the local government? Property taxes. God forbid a hurt should go on the real estate values.
Within moments of the inauguration, the official White House website on Friday deleted nearly all mentions of climate change. And in it’s place was Mr. Trump’s vow to eliminate the Obama administration’s climate change policies, which previously had a prominent and detailed web page on whitehouse.gov.
So, out of sight out of mind. Wow! Trump solved the problem of climate change by moving it out of view and off the table. That man is a real problem solver!
He then signs off on Oklahoma’s Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency.
Pruitt is one of 27 State Aottorneys currently suing the EPA over the “Clean Power Plan”, which cuts emissions from coals-fired power plants. On his own LinkedIn page, Pruitt claims to be , “A leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda”.
Mr. Trump remains dismissive of the established science of human-caused climate change, and committed to blocking policies to curb it.
First day at his desk was monumental!
Next? The removal of all of the Obama administration’s personal and policy pages.
As if this information was the number one menace to our society.
Some people learn by education. Some by seeing. Some by being there. Some by feeling. But there is a percentage of our population who only learns by evil and loss. And so we carry the burden of “necessary evils”.
I have too much to do to watch Mr. Trump, and others who’s names I shall not mention here, (mercy), play Three Card Monty. And report my findings daily.
Being a person of faith, I can see what is coming is another necessary evil. Not questioning why. Often, evil people wake us up. Teach us to better know ourselves. We either rise above them, survive in spite of them, or run behind them in the witch hunts. Evil people can help you know things about yourself, which can be highly beneficial.
The after party, as the White House turned into a pub with overpriced drinks, was dancers, dancers, and more dancers!
I must say, because of Trump’s history as a serial stalker of dancers in New York, it was a Biblical moment for me to see him have to dance for his supper.
Oh yeah babe, the times they are a changing.
