Trump the "stable" genius

Greenland is melting. The Amazon Rainforest is burning. The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Tropical depressions are turning into Category 5 hurricanes in a matter of days.

Even a "stable genius" like Trump must realize that all of these catastrophic events are the results of a planet becoming hotter and hotter.

But what does Trump do?

His administration has plans to end federal requirements for energy companies to conduct mandatory inspections and repair for methane leaks. Methane is many, many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Not even the oil and gas companies are supporting the new proposal. No one but Trump.

Trump is opening the Tongass National Forest in Alaska to logging and is reviving two destructive mining projects — one near Alaska's Bristol Bay and the other near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota. These places speak of beauty, showing how Trump is once again putting short-term profits over the environment.

Trump is worse than a climate denier, he is doing all he can to make a mockery of science, by doing the opposite those who believe man's actions can affect the climate crisis.

Mother Nature is screaming LOCK HIM UP!

Not a Bob Hope fan

Bob Hope is one of the most overrated entertainers in the United States.

He toured the world as if he were a great American patriot but in reality the only reason he went overseas was so that he could have affairs with all of those singers and actresses. He was also one of the worst fathers, having adopted three children whom he never saw.

His philandering along with Bing Crosby was legendary and would make Gene Simmons and Wilt Chamberlain blush!
