This is the fourth presidency in a row in which the losers spend most of their time and our money trying to oust the new president or disrupt or destroy any benefits the new president is trying to accomplish.
Yeah, we already knew President Donald Trump’s business methods were a bit unorthodox and he surrounded himself with like-minded people and, yeah, the Russians tried to mess things up, just like they have been doing for years all over the planet. So get over it and let’s try to get some benefit from this president.
Both parties seem to use fear as their primary tool of choice these days. Currently it is the sad Central Americans fleeing terror at home as the great danger. But Trump has a great need to be loved. We should shower him with tweets, Instagrams, emails or even letters with suggestions of much more dangerous villains to use. Things like:
• Term limits for senators and congressmen. Mr. (Bradley) Byrne (R-AL), I wrote all the Republican senators except you and asked; the only one who answered me was (Sen. Richard) Shelby (R-AL) and he is against term limits.
• Single-use plastic. Watch “Plastic Paradise” movie and watch “Mission Blue” on Netflix. Spoiler alert for why you should care about the ocean: 70 to 90 percent of the oxygen you breathe comes from the ocean.
• Conquer the medical mafia and really make America great again. It ought to be against the law to have an opinion until after you’ve read T.R. Reid’s “The Healing of America” (get it at your local library or buy it for $10 on Amazon). Spoiler alert: You won’t like what it has to say about Hillary Clinton’s plan.
• End the drug war and stop babying addicts. Alabama taxpayers pay around $225,000 each to punish drug offenders and it hasn’t been working any better than prohibition did.
