A guilty plea and a tax scheme.

Republicans in Washington are hours away from giving a trillion dollars away to the wealthiest among us. It will be done by way of a tax scheme that will be pushed through many of the people voting for it even seeing what they are voting for. The are so anxious to get it through before we can scrutinize it that they are literally handwriting parts of it. (See above) Incredibly, some democratic senators have been saying that they are hearing what’s in the bill from lobbyist on K Street, not from their republican colleagues.

It must be nice to be a republican fat-cat donor these days. All of the politricksters in Washington depend on you to get their money to get reelected, and they will honor your will, even if it means hurting most of the people in the country in the long run.

Personally, from what I can see, this new proposed tax scheme will not affect my life that much. In fact, my accountant says that I will be happy with it. The thing is, though, unlike those scumbags in Washington, I actually care about my fellow citizens, and I realize that there might be some short-term gain from this scheme, but in the long run we will all suffer. We have lived through this “trickle down economics” scam before, and it was not pretty.

So all in all this was a good day if you are a fat cat lobbyist or wealthy American.

It wasn’t a good day, however, for the former national security adviser to Donald trump.

“it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of ‘treason’ and other outrageous acts.”

However, he said, “I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right. My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.”

That was Michael Flynn’s statement after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. He will be singing like Beyonce in days to come, because believe me, it was a very nice deal, and Mr. Mueller and company will want something in return.

Sadly for Mr. trump, that something is him —or someone close to him, and if you have been following the time line of this Russia mess, you know that he (Mueller) could be nabbing a bigger fish any day now. Mr. trump might end up getting his wall after all. It just won’t be the one he expected. It won’t be keeping Mexicans out of America, it will be keeping him in prison.

It seems like just yesterday Mike Flynn was yelling “lock her up” when referring to Hillary Clinton to a crown of rabid trump deplorables.

Oh well, sorry Mr. Flynn, life comes at you fast.
