Richard Calderhead The Fighting Liberal

2017: Now What? Itsez will shortly undergo a Makeover. This....of course...is
because of the CATASTROPHIC Trump Triumph. Stay Tuned for BIG CHANGES!

GREAT WEALTH IS OBSCENE!

Sept. 29. Most Americans are Blissfully Unaware of the Income Disparity in Wealth in the USA. They hear about "Millionaires" and "Billionaires"...but
they have literally ZERO Comprehension of what having "A Million Dollars" actually means!

A current story describes how the Millionaires (etc.,) zoom around the Skies
in Private or Rented Jets....and the costs are utterly MINDBOGGLING!

These costs are treated by The Rich the way you handle a Cab Ride.
Hop in...go where you are going...and Pay the Fare. But your $5 Cab Fare is about as meaningful to your pocketbook as his $1,000,000 Ride to visit some Island Resort, or whatever.
Back in New York...when the Rich really began to Rake In The Big Bucks.... those HORRIBLE, noisy Private Jets (and...Helicopters)....really upset the Mildly Rich who were already living by the Beach on Long Island.
And...it's only gotten worse.

You are seeing stories of how Trump Insiders are getting GINORMOUS BENEFITS by having the Government supply the jets...and "absorb" the Costs.
The Price Scandal is a Case In Point.

This is NOTHING LESS THAN SICK, SICK, SICK!

To Repeat (and Repeat and Repeat and Repeat)....the Top 1/10th of 1 Percent... that is, the Richest of the Rich....OWN MORE OF AMERICA, ETC., THAN THE ENTIRE REMAINING 99% of us!!!!!

Now...if you think all that Money is being used for Good Purposes....you truly must have your head buried the Sand.

A young person I know stands to inherit $3,000,000 pretty soon...with Mom ready to Pass On at any time.

I happened to mention that figure to a Rich Guy in NYC...and his answer simply Stunned Me. He casually said: "You can't do much with $3,000,000!!!!"
I sat there shocked! Huh? $3,000,000???
I nearly got up from the Table and left. I made myself Calm Down....and did
not react. But....it was a PURE SHOCK to hear those words from his mouth.

Now Trump is poised to CHANGE THE TAX Laws in America.

Oh, he's tossing out a few bucks to Lower Income Americans...but all the
Big Money is going to....you guessed it: The UberRich.

So? What's to be done about  this?

Mitt Romney summed it all up nicely: "47% of Americans are Moochers."

That's what Rich People Think. They believe that Americans are Lazy, and
want Uncle Sam to Tax the Rich and let them Loaf their Lives Away.
As long as THAT is the Mind-set of The Rich & Powerful....they will do everything in their Power to keep it that way.

The Rich Get Everything...the Poor can Suck Wind.

So the Rich Kid goes to Harvard...and the Bright Young Man in the Hood is lucky if he can get a Job. At Harvard...the Rich Kid meets OTHER Rich Kids...and they perpetuate the Rich Clique that OWNS AMERICA.

Any chance to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS?

Trump careens around Twitting Krazy Stuff....and there AIN'T NO END IN SIGHT ....at least not yet. Stay Tuned.

Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
actual eye-witness to both Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, as well as the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. When I was a kid...everyone I knew respected and admired FDR. Sure...there were a few "Republicans"
who sniffed at The New Deal, but we forgave them for their Silly Old Ideas. Who would have ever guessed that, led by the Hateful Ronnie Reagan in 1980, those "honorable" Republicans would morph into today's MoneyMad RepUglyCons??? One of my key tasks with Itsez is to point out the Sheer Stupidity and Core Mean Spiritedness of what used to be...the Grand Old Party. Oh, Abraham Lincoln...how we miss you!

HILLARY SCORES!!!!

Sept. 15. Rachel invited Hillary onto her Show...and it lasted the FULL HOUR!
WOW! And?
As an early Obama-backer....I started the move in Palm Springs to get Obama equal time with Hill...way back in 2008!
What was my reason for backing Obama...and not Hillary?
Oh, it's a long story...going back to when Hillary was SUPPOSED to figure out how to bring Healthcare to All Americans.

I had several Insurance Clients at that time....and was asked to speak on this Topic to an Insurance Group.

I wrote the ENTIRE SPEECH in a couple of hours...and gave it to the Insurance People. Did they Buy MY Version? To be honest...although I  got lots of Compliments on my Delivery....the  Insurance Industry was fighting Hillary Tooth and Nail...so...they weren't buying my Roosevelt-Inspired Healthcare For All approach...but they LIKED MY DELIVERY!

Meanwhile...Hillary was all caught up in the "Politics" of the Healthcare Reform Movement.

I found it all VERY Confusing and....Upsetting. Huh? As Bernie is saying right now today: Universal Healthcare in America should be a Right...Not a Privilege! Amen to THAT!!!

But let's revisit Hillary on Thursday Night. She was....MARVELOUS!
She was Cool, Calm and Collected. How SAD she is not our President.
She looked FINE....(she had worked so hard on Campaigning...that she was looking pretty WORN OUT at Election Time. She's back to normal and looking FINE for her years.

Imagine how she felt when The Donald walked up behind her as she was speaking...and STARED AT HER...etc.! (She said it made her Flesh Crawl)

As things stand now...we have to AGONIZE over Trump for the next 3 years... unless, of course he either Self-Destructs or is Impeached. (Your guess is as good as mine on which alternative will prevail. I FIRMLY believe that Trump will not last the Full Term.

Hillary is Smart...no question about THAT.
And Rachel did not box her in or set her up with xxx Questions
that could make Hillalry look bad.

Hillary will NOT be President of the United States.

But applause for a Courageous, Smart, Articulate American...who HAPPENS
to be a Female.

I do NOT want Bill to EVER be in the White House again....so HOORAY for that! I do NOT want Chelsea to sneak into any important Government Work. No. Enuf.

I have NO IDEA what Hillary will do with her remaining time on Planet Earth.
I with her the best...and I HOPE she will be onside for Critical Issues like...
Bernie-Care. We'll watch and see.

What I cringe at is the thought that the Clinton Foundation will continue on
its usual path of Enriching the Clintons....and delivering VERY LITTLE IN TANGIBLE BENEFITS TO HUMANKIIND!!!

(Ask the People of Haiti what THEY THINK of Bill Clinton!!!
He blew that one Totally!)

Again...Hillary...you did a FINE JOB ON THURSDAY NIGHT!
Good For You.

9/11 TIME AGAIN!

Sept. 8. Readers know I lived through Dec. 7 in 1941...and 9/11 in 2001.
I always take a moment to comment on these Historic dates in American History on their Anniversaries.
So here we have 9/11. What Happened?
Quickly, that morning stated off Bright and Fresh...I was at my desk as usual before most people....when the elevator door opened and a young secretary got off...announcing that "a low-flying plane" had just  passed flying South."
"Fine".... I thought...thinking Cesna. Wrong.
"A plane just hit the World Trade Center!!!"
Without pausing...several of us jumped up and ran up the stairs to the roof...
just one floor away.
What did we see? Oh, not much.
At first...there was a black Gash on the Face of the North Tower...and smoke was coming out. Not that much (the wind was pushing the smoke South....so it was hidden from us.)
Again...the impression was..."Bad"...but hardly catastrophic.
An associate offered me a Dollar Bill, saying:.."It was a Terrorist Attack."
I declined the Bet.

I went to my computer...and began to see the first News Reports.
Now it was clear that the plane was a Large Jet...and it had scored a Direct Hit on the offices of a Client of mine! And...the internal Fires were fearsome.

Then, just minutes later...the 2nd Jet hit the South Tower. I got up out of my chair, walked over to my associate...and handed him a Dollar.
"You were right!" We stormed up to the roof again...and....it was Pure Terror!
The 2nd Tower was engulfed in Flame and Smoke...and  it was HORRIBLE.

CFire and Police Sirens were blazing by below us on
Fifth Avenue, as they streamed town toward the Disaster.

Already, on my Computer...it was becoming clear what
had happened...we were attacked by Muslims Radicals
(fairly quickly, this included bin Laden's Name)...and of course it was not long before the 3rd Plane hit the Pentagon!

Now we REALLY KNEW WE WERE IN IT!

Only the Brave Passengers on the 4th Jet were able to bring down that plane and avoid it hitting the actual White House!!!!!!!!!!

It did not take long before we learned that there had been "Hair On Fire" Warnings about Planned Attacks. But...our Esteemed Leaders seemed Obllvious to any Intel.

Bush stole the Election from Al Gore. And Team Bush wanted NOTHING TO DO with any Intel from the Clinton/Gore Era.

So we have this Ghastly Moment in U.S. History to Live With Forever.
And...NOBODY WAS EVER CALLED TO ACCOUNT.
Not Bush. Not Cheney. Not Condosleeza Rice.

In the immediate aftermath...a lot of Brilliant and Dedicated New Yorkers began to Sift and Probe. At first...they seemed to be making a Good Case for CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE...or Worse!!!

But...sadly...these people were slowly Silenced. Told to "Shut Up!"

And...to this Day...we do NOT KNOW HOW BIN LADEN WAS EVER ALLOWED TO ATTACK AMERICA!!!

Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
actual eye-witness to both Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, as well as the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. When I was a kid...everyone I knew respected and admired FDR. Sure...there were a few "Republicans"
who sniffed at The New Deal, but we forgave them for their Silly Old Ideas. Who would have ever guessed that, led by the Hateful Ronnie Reagan in 1980, those "honorable" Republicans would morph into today's MoneyMad RepUglyCons??? One of my key tasks with Itsez is to point out the Sheer Stupidity and Core Mean Spiritedness of what used to be...the Grand Old Party. Oh, Abraham Lincoln...how we miss you!

ENUF ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!

August 25. Well? Had Enuf yet???
Donald Trump is the Biggest Farce in the History of America.
It is a Total Clown Show!
But....he's still the President!!!! How much LONGER?
It is absolutely WRONG to say that...."Nothing Is Being Done"....yet....to
Get Him Out. But...it's all a bunch of Mini-Moves.
The Hard Right OWNS too much of American Media; the Great Unwashed are not getting clear messages that THIS IS TOTALLY INSANE!

Trumps "Ratings" DO continue to decline...but...NOT BY ENUF.

Are you wearing a Dump Trump Badge yet? Hmmm? Why Not?

What about Trump's Wall? Did you know that MORE MEXICANS ARE MOVING BACK TO MEXICO THAN COMING TO AMERICA???

Mexico hears that "Mexico will pay for  it"...and just Laffs!
But now we are hearing that Trump is WILLING TO SHUT DOWN AMERICA TO GET THE $$$ TO PAY FOR THE WALL!!!

Meanwhile, Bush/Cheney never have had to answer for not catching
Osama bin Laden when he was trapped in Afghanistan in the Mountain Hideaway at Tora Bora. WHY NOT? This is a HUGE SCANDAL of Bush Incompetence.....or worse. Some believe that....if bin Laden had been caught...the War  in Afghanistan would have evaporated!
And...some Moneyed Interests did not want that to happen.

But this has gone  on for 16 years!!! When...WHEN....is Enuf Enuf???

ENUF ALREADY!!!

We (WE!!!) Need To Rebuild The Democratic Party!

Start at Square One: Clintons: You are NOT Welcome.
Big Dog is...amoral. Hill is Brilliant...and....a Total Puzzle. What does she really BELIEVE in, anyhow?

She was NOT responsible for ben Ghazi...but...she (working with the Olde DIMocrates)....stole the last election from Bernie Sanders.

OK...where to from here? Let's ask Bernie to Head Up the Democratic Party.
Let's get him to identify the PERFECT PERSON to be our Next President.
Let Bernie be there...by his side...but let the person be a bit Younger and ready to Stand Tall for 8 Years!!!

Then...let's ALL GET OUT AND GET OUT THE VOTE!!!!!
Beginning IMMEDIATELY....in every City, Town and Village  in America.

The RepUglies stand for just one thing: "Money"!!!! They WANT IT ALL!

They will Kill Medicare...Privatize Social Security...they will SLASH TAXES
ON THE RICH 1%...and they will CRUSH AMERICA in the Process.

Trump is the Perfect Exemplar of everything I have just said.

Trump is Greedy, Selfish, and a TOTAL LIAR!!!

I am now flipping over every evening to watch bits and pieces of The Five...
the obscene Jesse Watters Show....where the Cast spends the Hour Giggling
as they Slander and Malign the latest Fake News Scandal, etc.

Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
actual eye-witness to both Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, as well as the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. When I was a kid...everyone I knew respected and admired FDR. Sure...there were a few "Republicans"

"TRUMP IS KILLING PLANET EARTH!!!

August 4. This is not Fake News....this is straight from The Donald:
"Green Coal will create New Jobs!" No....Moron...there is NO SUCH THING
AS GREEN COAL! That was Dead & Buried.....20 Years ago!

But Trump has MANY OTHER KILL THE PLANET NIGHTMARES...walking out on the Paris Accord is simply MIND BOGGLING!

So...WHERE IS THE AMERICAN OPPOSITION TO THIS CATASTROPHE???

When I think of the Incredible Number of Creatures that God Invented....it is absolutely Amazing! Oh, I know about Evolution. But I love to think of God as being the Designer who created all those GORGEOUS CREATURES.

If you are paying attention...you know tht the Coral Reefs are in Big Trouble.
I saw that first hand during my Vacation Days in the Caribbean. Once gone...GONE! And WHY are they Going? Man is Burning Up The Planet!

The Pacific Ocean is FILLNG UP WITH PLASTIC!!! (Ditto all over the world, by the way...it's not just a California Problem.)

When I had my House down in the British Virgin Islands...every year some of us would motorboat over to a little Island Beach...and VOLUNTEER to pick up the Garbage! That was way back in 1990!

I want to check out the Sierra Club. Seriously. It seems to me they are WAY TOO QUIET about all of this...(have they been subverted by some Big Money?) You know...the way PBS dropped Bill Moyers because of the Koch Bros. $$$!!!
(I still can't forgive  them for doing that!)

For THIS Human Being....THE DESTRUCTION OF PLANET EARTH IS THE MOST HORRENDOUS ACT OF POLITICAL GENOCIDE EVER CONCEIVED!

And...WHERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE ME..Actively Demonstrating against Trump?
I do my part by publishing Itsez.
I KNOW I NEED  TO DO MORE!
What are YOU doing????

As we finish this Week...there are few "New" Catastrophes looming over Trump's Head...but there are way more than
ENUF to Bring the Monster Down!

His "Approval" Ratings are at Rock Bottom...you need to be Born Again, Gun-Totin' Racist actually be "FOR" Trump. (Unless, of course, you are a Sold Out Billionaire who cares only about the Bottom Line of YOUR Treasure.)

Treasure? Trump has claimed he is worth...$34 Billion. It's a Claim...not Documented. He says he is the 544th Richest Person.
There have been...not Hundreds...but THOUSANDS of "Legal Actions" against Trump or his Organization. (His favorite: "I have more Lawyers than you'll ever have!")

One of the rasons he has so meny Legal Actions...is that he does anything he wants to do. Example? Way, way back when he was just getting started with Trump Towers...NYC said: "Stop! You cannot tear down the Historic. Landmark Bonwit Teller Building! Trump said: "Phooey!" He waited until a quite Saturday... and then had a crew of...UNDOCUMENTED POLISH WORKERS simply TEAR DOWN THE OLD FAÇADE!

See how EASY IT CAN BE....if you are....The Donald?

Now please remember...that Trump LOST the Election to Hillary. Not by a few votes...by no less than MILLIONS OF VOTES! Only "technicalities" in the Electoral College count gave him the Presidency.

Finally...there have been THOUSANDS of..."Legal Actions" against Trump over the Decades. And there will be more....stay tuned.

Somewhere...in all this MESS...is where The Donald will meet his Comeuppance.

Itsez Who? As far as I know...I am the only Living American who was an
actual eye-witness to both Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, as well as the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. When I was a kid...everyone I knew respected and admired FDR. Sure...there were a few "Republicans"
