I had this idea that I would write DJT a letter every day, for the first 100 days of his presidency. And then, today, he decided to re-open the Dakota Access Pipeline and Keystone XL pipeline.
And I was like, “Wha—?”
There’s no good economic reason–prices of oil have been slumping since the fall of 2015 because we really don’t need that much oil anymore, what with fuel economy, and LED lighting, and all kinds of new tech, and CLIMATE CHANGE!
These pipelines won’t create a lot of new jobs. Except in maybe Alberta, Canada.
And then I saw that Omarosa went on Frontline and said we all are going to have to bow down to President Trump. She basically admitted that he became “the most powerful man in the universe” for “the ultimate revenge.”
Well, if that isn’t typical super villain motivation, I just don’t know what is.
If you have the patience to read the whole transcript, you will see she admits that he’s “very Darth Vader-ish”.
Wait, doesn’t that just mean he’s like a super villain? Figuratively, not literally? Isn’t this a case of hyperbole?
Not really. Because if he succeeds in all his plans, he will literally destroy the very planet we live on. And lots of people will die. People will die from climate change related super storms, floods, and drought. Entire species will go extinct. Ecosystems will disappear.
Not to mention all the people who will die when their healthcare disappears as he guts the ACA. And let’s not forget the arms race he’s challenged crazy North Korea to.
I’m not just a crazy lone conspiracy theorist. Check out the bunkers the super wealthy are building for themselves, because they’re pretty sure we’re all going down. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/01/30/doomsday-prep-for-the-super-rich
And all of this, just for revenge.
So I didn’t write my letter. Because today I am just too heartsick. But tomorrow, I meet with my neighbors and join the Rebel Alliance. May the Force be with us.
