Scott Pruitt of the EPA
Is in a rut of really bad days
Corrupt to the core
Abusing power and more
In the real world he’d be locked away
$50 to a lobbyist
For rent, this price point doesn’t exist
At all in DC
It was a bribe Pruitt couldn’t resist
Samantha Dravis was a consigned
Aid to Scott Pruitt, she just resigned,
By all accounts though
She was a no show
November to March, but paid in kind
She saw the world while on salary
From Morocco to gay Paris
She did have the time
And tax payer’s dime
Could she be Pruitt’s f***k buddy?
Scott is anti-environmental
For Earth, he’s not sentimental
He’s living the dream
By skimming the cream
Is this criminal, or governmental?
These men voice a line that’s the same
Healthcare and Medicare are to blame
The deficit made
Once tax cuts were paid
To “the best people,” the GOP by name
What Scott Pruitt asks is interesting—
Is climate change ‘necessarily a bad thing?’
Wild fires, and floods,
Hurricanes, sliding mud,
Are those things good? Go on, I’m listening.
Pruitt was appointed to his position,
By Trump, to lift EPA restrictions.
It pays to play dumb,
With fossil fuel income.
Their* wealth relies on CO2 emissions.
When I say “their,” I mean Trump, Putin,
The Koch brothers, the Mercers, Tillerson,
Rubio, Chris Christie,
The Bush family
Ted Cruz, the GOP, and… the Clintons
Was it ignorance, or was his racial insensitivity intentional? Either way the result is the same.
Donald Trump decided to hold a ceremony honoring Native American WWII veterans in front of a painting of Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson’s signature is on the “Indian Removal Act” of 1830. That law was enacted for the sole purpose of taking all the land away from Native Americans who lived in the southeastern states, forcing them to migrate west of the Mississippi River. Let’s imagine he didn’t know this. He’s an idiot, so it is possible.
But his words…
“I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here – although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.” ~ Donald J Trump to Native American WWII veterans
He was referring to Elizabeth Warren, and he is the only one who calls her Pocahontas. This is bad. He had to know this was insulting…
But let’s not forget Donald Trump’s prior treatment of Native Americans— those who stood in the way when he sided with Energy Transfer Partners were forcibly removed in order to allow oil pipelines to be built under their land. Trump’s stock in the company, and the Russian steel used for the pipeline took precedence over Native American’s clean drinking water and sacred burial grounds.
By the way, the oil has spilled. Earlier this month it took the Canadian company 15 minutes to stanch the leak. That was enough time for 210,000 gallons of crude oil to spill in Keystone. The Dakota Access Pipeline leaked 84 gallons in South Dakota in May.
The protesters were right, however there is no satisfaction in being proven right in this instance.
My point is, don’t act so shocked at Trump’s ignorant and racially insensitive behavior when addressing Native American vets. It’s only more of the same.
Which One Is Our President—
- John McCain announces his strategy for Afghanistan,
- Al Gore leads a fight to save the planet from ruination.
- Bernie Sanders offers details for a single-payer healthcare plan,
- Trump golfs and warns war to distract from an investigation.
Though the month of June has just started
Tis my view ~ a belief wholehearted
Why wait? Award it now
Mike Pence, please take a bow
Then call Uber- the clue train has departed
“But for some reason or another, this issue of climate change has emerged as a paramount issue for the left in this country and around the world.”
~ Mike Pence, Vice President of the U.S. of A.
And the world collectively sighed
Shook off the dismay and surmised
The whole GOP
Is unaware, but happy
Regardless, they’re uniformly despised
When one wears orange colored glasses
A skewed view of the world persists
Global warming, or greenhouse gasses
Can’t be seen, so how can they exist?
With the Climate Accord he bypasses
Inconvenient Truths without conscience are dismissed
Trump wont preserve Earth for the masses
America’s imaginary diplomatist
Fossil fuel – where money is amassed
By villainous con men, earth’s rapists
A Rosneft Exon/Mobile morass
Is Russia first? No – In Trump we resist
