killing the dream...

I'm a dreamer...

I get all snuggled up in the laundry and dream of treats and petties and family and being loved.

Now as he promised in his campaign, Mr. Trump is going after DACA.
If Trump ends DACA it will cost the country 700,000 jobs and billions with a B of dollars.
But don't worry because "he's a business man" maybe not a very good one but it's all subjective right?

Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg who are unarguably great business men along with
Executives from General Motors, Apple, Berkshire Hathaway, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and many other companies who echoed other business leaders in their letter to Trump.

"All DACA recipients grew up in America, registered with our government, submitted to extensive background checks, and are diligently giving back to our communities and paying income taxes," their joint letter said.
"Our economy would lose $460.3 billion from the national GDP and $24.6 billion in Social Security and Medicare tax contributions," if DACA recipients lose their protections and face deportation, the letter continued, calling those recipients, also known as Dreamers, "vital to the future of our companies and our economy."

So who should we listen to?
The guy who just paid a 25 million dollars  to the defendants in the Trump University lawsuit?
Or these other guys who actually can run a successful business and not just a branding scheme on the back of a loan from his father?

I know who I'd choose.

On top of all that....

polls now show that 58% of Americans are embarrassed by Mr Trump.

Those in his cabinet and some Republicans in congress are questioning his ability to run the country ( not really sure what took them so long???)

Just a few days into Hurricane Harvey, Donald Trump landed in Corpus Christie where he did a Trump victory tour as opposed to meeting with survivors and first responders.

While Mexico and Canada showed what true leadership is when both countries after being belittled and berated by Mr. Trump on numerous occasions offered complete support in the hurricane's wake.

We have to make a choice no matter what party we are .
Country should trump party!

Look at the devastation this man is leaving in his path...

Don't let him take out one of the most important tenants of our democracy.

Demand comprehensive immigration reform!
And for GODS sake don't let him dismantle DACA!

Have a morally conscious weekend...

    Oh I hadn't heard about this one... mind you, over here with the Brexit debacle, am pretty sure similar sorts of behaviour will 'out'; those who voted for it pretty much only did so because of 'immigrants taking "our" jobs'... Stupidity. Snuggling up in the laundry and dreaming seems to me a sane thing to be doing in these crazy times Noodle darlin'! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. i'm in one of those state (Idaho) who thinks President Trump is doing a good job. I have to say...With his ideals and if most of them goes us

  3. If President Obama had anything to do with setting something in motion, we know by now that Trump will do anything in his power to disband it. We fear now that he has promised some of his own money to Texas, that some of those who know he's a bum will change their minds and think he's a good guy. Bet there are lots of Dreamers in the areas hit hardest by Harvey. We're pretty sure that if Trump could keep them from getting any help, he would. Noodle, we always appreciate your willingness to speak out!

  4. The decision is being dangled like bait. Maybe today...maybe Tuesday - just make up your #$%^ mind and get it over with !

  5. the most shocking is that ONLY 58 percent are embarrassed!

  6. Our lives ahould always be filled with hapoy dreams!

  8. Ugh. It just gets worse and worse, Noodle.

  9. We feel so differently about our current political climate that I'll just say how absolutely adorable you look, Noodle :)

  10. SO much sadness in the world. Reading cat blogs and seeing your adorable faces makes me happy.

  11. Alas the time for laundry sitting is over on both sides of the pond. Stupid decisions don't make good solutions they just cause strife and upset and conflict wherever and whatever they are about, and politics and business are no different.

  12. It is not fair to send people who grew up here, elsewhere.

  13. Oh Noodle, you look so cute. It never ceases to amaze us how those against Trump can spew so much hatred and dessention while calling for everyopne to join together. Big hugs

    Luv ya'

  15. They came here as innocent children. They had no choice. One Dreamer drowned in the Houston area while trying to save victims from the Hurricane Harvey flood waters.
