Out with the old

White House chief strategist does not consider Asians as part of his civic, alt right society.  Bannon responded to a suggestion from Trump, to retain talented students in America: “When two-thirds or three-quarters of the CEOs in Silicon Valley are from South Asia or from Asia, I think . . . ” he didn’t finish his sentence. “A country is more than an economy. We’re a civic society.” The fear continues to spread in the entrepreneurial unicorns of Silicon Valley, that its great enterpenuers are neither appreciated nor understood. Bannon would prefer that all the foreign students of Ivy League colleges, and all the Graduate and Post Graduate students, return home on completing their studies, which will lead to a shortage of talent for the current and future growth of Silicon Valley.

We watch with fear as President elect Trump continues to appoint the new administration officers. Multi ethnicity is in trouble along with a woman’s right to choose, and LGBT rights, as people with conservative Christian views, continue to be appointed to key posts. Climate change deniers take over other key posts, and civil rights got an anti-champion in his Attorney General. Jeff Sessions the new AG is someone who had questioned 30 years ago, whether or not Martin Luther King’s aides, had been trying to commit voter fraud, and was denied a judgeship.

Obama Care will be repealed and the baby literally thrown out with the bath water as poor mothers and children will suffer. The too big to fail Finance laws are threatened as Dodd Frank will be rolled back. Deficit financing is headed for its greatest growth in the history of mankind with massive tax cuts for the rich and huge spending planned on a wall and other infrastructure projects. New thinking is rising and a lot of the old will be left in the dust of history. A new boss is coming and he is busy in unleashing a new power elite, not tied to current science or rational beliefs. General Flynn the new Security adviser has previously tweeted that fear of Muslims is rational. We must all fear such irrational beliefs about billions of our fellow humans, surrounding the most powerful position in our land. Will we all have to turn ourselves in, in a mass movement of civil disobedience, to avoid any further mischief from our incoming President? We still hope for sense to prevail and better sense to be shown, in picking the remaining cabinet secretaries.
