Today our President made a businessman type of decision and withdrew the United States from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, an agreement that was signed by all but two nations (those being Syria and Nicaragua).
This decision proves to me that our current administration (or at least most of them) does not truly understand what is going on in the world today and like many dictator types, wants to isolate our country to the point where we will no longer be considered a leader in the free world.
I found it most interesting when Trumpy talked about the world is laughing at us now, as if they were laughing at us when we signed into the climate agreement – not understanding that the world started to laugh at us shortly after he took office and for sure after he made a stumbling, narcissistic display of himself during his trip through Europe.
The idea that Trumpy is not smart enough to at least listen to the people that really know is beyond me, but to totally ignore what the Pope gave him is true ignorance.
Thinking that he can just walk away from an agreement and re-negotiate is the sign of a bully style business person, the kind that most of us would never want to truly work for or support. Bullying other world leaders like he has for so many years in the businesses sphere, will only pull our country down in the eyes of the world – instead of ‘making America great again’, Trumpy is making ‘America a joke’!!!
I for one have 11 grandkids, so the future of not only our grand country, but the Earth itself if very much of importance to me and I do not like where he has us heading. And to claim in his speech that we will lead the world on our own in environmental protections within a few weeks of having signed several executive orders to start the dismantling of environmental protections already in place makes me truly question his thinking and heart (which we already know is cold as ice).
On top of his embarrassing decision to walk away from the rest of the world (and I have not discussed one of the reasons for this decision that nobody is talking about and that being that Obama signed it), Trumpy has so many conservative politicians that are encouraging him because they have been paid upwards of $10 million by the oil and gas industry.
And then we have this conservative ‘Christian’ who says that Jesus made us stewards of the world, but not the climate – what the heck kind of idiotic comment is that. Being a steward of the world MEANS taking care of it and fixing the harmful changes for which man is making. The idea that ‘God’ will take care of it is true thoughtlessness and in this ‘Gramps’ opinion, being a complete idiot. I would call what we are doing to this planet we were gifted to live on and with, is possible the biggest sin of all toward any kind of vision you see as ‘God’.
I am at the point where I can’t even listen to political news these days without feeling my blood pressure rise and my anger move beyond simmer – hoping that one day I can wake up and the climate back stepping nightmare will maybe, just maybe be over – at least that is my hope.
And there you have it, ‘Grumpy Gramps’ spewing in response to something he may have seen and liked or disliked, and either way had the feeling that he needed to get his response ‘off my chest’. So maybe you can enjoy, enlighten and think about what he may have said. And if you want, feel free to respond with a comment or two on his blog and ‘Grumpy Gramps’ promises to give you some type of response. Word of caution, ‘Grumpy Gramps’ has a line that shall not be crossed regarding name calling, racism, hatred or threats and more – and if that line gets crossed, well you’ll see at that point.
As for those wondering about why I call this ‘Grumpy Gramps’, it’s because I have been around the walk of life for a long while now and for those who know me, I have my thoughts and opinions which seem to spew out on occasion much to the chagrin of my wife and a few of my grandkids. When that happens, the grandkids look at me with squinted eyes and say, ‘being grumpy, gramps’.
