The argument can be made that all the rhetoric and actions are pointing to taking care of corporations under the guise of a tax bill that will bring bigger paychecks to the common citizen. However, upon further review the so-called tax cuts for citizens will only last a couple of years before the real benefits take effect for big business, the illusion the tax cuts is great for all has caused many businesses to celebrate by announcing employee bonuses a great example of this is how walmart decided to give up to one thousand dollar bonuses to employees but behind the scenes there were 63 sam's club stores were closed at the same time with many of the employees being unaware of what was happening. Another interesting claim of the administration is because of the tax cuts american paychecks are larger once again this is just another illusion to make the american public feel there needs are being placed first, what was left out of the claim was that many states voted almost two years ago to raise the minimum wage to at least eleven dollars an hour that took effect january 2018.
Then there is the constant mention of the FISA memo by representative Devin Nunes chair of the house intelligence committee that claims concrete evidence of a political agenda by the FBI, DNC, and Hillary Clinton which involved the spying by the FBI on an american citizen based on false information. Although it is true that it is illegal for any american agency to spy on an american citizen, it is not illegal to have an outside agency from another country to do so which is what happened many of the names mentioned in the memo are the same names we have heard over and over again in the russian collusion investigation. While the american public continues to be enthralled about all the memo's that will or will not be released President Trump has refused to sign and implement sanction against Russia although congress voted 517-2 to implement the sanctions. Of course with all the hoopla over those memo's about collusion wouldn't it be in the best interest of the Trump administration to impose those sanctions if not for nothing else but appearances.
We have a president that's recorded on tape expressing the way he has touched women inappropriately throughout his business dealings but has not once been forced to answer for his behavior, in the meantime you have numerous hollywood executives and actors that have been forced to quit or been fired for the same type of behavior. There is the case of Bill Cosby whose been ridiculed, reruns of his shows taken off the air, not to mention been forced to defend himself in not one but two separate trials. This is not to say bill cosby is innocent or not but to point out the hypocrisy that exists in this country. Let's not forget the recent case of white house aid Rob Porter who's been also accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wives. However the president has continued to speak favorable of porter basically saying Porter's life is being ruined or has been ruined by the accusations. Although there are pictures and police reports this will go away with minimum fanfare.
As a veteran of the armed services I can say with much confidence that the united states of america does not need any military parade because that is what other countries chose to do. Our military has many other important things to do then waste precious time cleaning and prepping their equipment just to please a president that has never served one second in the armed service. The money spent of such a parade could be used for a better purpose such as getting our homeless veterans of the streets of america, really putting forth an effort in fixing the many issues the veterans hospitals across the nation face in properly taking care of veterans. The estimated cost of such a parade is $22m just for an hour of marching and armored vehicles driving down pennsylvania avenue just because the president decided it was a good thing to do.
In closing the slogan let's make america great again is just that a slogan, there has been no evidence that america is anywhere near becoming great again. Citizens often complain about other countries interfering in our government elections, other ethnicities coming into america performing acts of terrorism however because of conditioning / programming of the american public there is ignorance when thinking about the countries our military enter on orders from our political leaders. We overthrow governments, destroy ecosystems, and resources place puppets in charge that are more corrupt then those we overthrew not mentioning the different american companies that set up shop never to leave. As a nation there is still a lot we can learn other countries of how to leave together without mention the color of someone's skin or economic background until this nation really embraces those same principles that we force on others we will never never be great to anyone else
