Much of what he/they do to hurt diverse groups of our people
is hidden behind smokescreen diversions. A policy designed to
hurt people, other than themselves, is reported by real news in the
B section of major newspapers, often not even on the first three pages.
Ex : 2/8/2019 ( after the State of Union ) Section B, p 4.
The new director of Trump’s Consumer Financial Protection Agency
(CFPA) will carry out the policy of the former pick, Mick Mulvaney. That
policy will abolish 3 of Obama’s consumer protection regs regarding the
legal usury of the payday lending industry. The industry preys on the
poor and lower middle class, by praying they can not repay loans that
can carry 300 to 400% interest over time. Those protections were five
years in the making. Industry lobby groups have prevailed ! How much
money did it take to dismantle ? No estimate given here. However, Mick
did receive several donations to his SC congressional runs. Also, many
companies together, in a payday lending group, held its convention at
Trump’s Miami golf club in 2018. They will again in March, 2019. Just a
coincidence…Right ??? The corruption in this regime is deeper than the
water in Crater Lake ! The only joke more offensive is the new EPA !
First they came for Black and Native Americans (past, and for two yearsinto Trump admin.). I was not either, so I did not speak out. Then they camefor the 21 million with ACA health insurance;DACA children;undocumentedimmigrants and their children;comedians (Cathy Griffith : FBI, IRS,Customscould not get work in own country for 18 mns. Colbert : alleged to be high upon Trump’s enemy list);legal immigrants( only 30,000 allowed per year under Trump);His own FBI and CIA investigating or disagreeing with Trump’signorant illusions;gay ,lesbian, and transgender American citizens both in andout of the military. But I wasn’t either of these, so I didn’t speak out ! Thanthey came for the government employees with punitive and unnecessaryGov’t shutdowns; journalists who accurately reported what Trump and hisregime were doing; the poor and lower middle class by gutting of regs to keepthem from being preyed upon by financial institutions with legal andpolitical power. Soon they came for me…and their was no one left to speakout for me ! Fred
