    Yep, Trump’s billionaire and robber-baron picks will see to it that the government and its services are destroyed from within. This latest, with former OK Attorney General Scott Pruitt actually helped build the swamp Trump says he wants to drain. Pruitt specializes in turning government resources over to corporations. He relies on legislation and lawsuits written entirely by corporate lawyers to attack environmental legislation. He’s attacked all environmental issues, the ACA, securities regulations, immigration, and (of course) gay and voting rights.

    .

    Job Number One, however, is all about letting fossil fuel companies write the rules regardless of the public interest. As director, he has the power to (basically) weaponize the EPA against the environment – and the Koch brothers are well on the way to wrecking the EPA.

    .

    But hey, business is business, right? And at least “Crooked Hillary” won’t be selling those child sex slaves no more, huh?

    You poor, stupid fools.

    And another mega-millionaire joins the Trump camp, with his pick of Linda McMahon to head the Small Business Administration. Her single-best qualification is that she and her husband were the top donors to Trump’s campaign. Naw, it’s not pay for play patronage, it’s just a coincidence!

    .

    Her administration of the WWE is anything but “small business” friendly. She’s made millions in profits by using labor loopholes to classify employees as “independent contractors,” denying them OT, vacation, sick, and health insurance – despite really tough travelling requirements. WWE laid off workers even as it took tax credits intended to create jobs, has ruthlessly crushed any unionization efforts, so minimum or slightly-above minium wage is the norm. And WWE is the de-facto monopoly on “pro” wrestling after she has succeeded in destroyed all competition (including a lot of small business). Yeah, but she and hubby gave $11 million to Trump, so ya gotta love her, right? Might’s well put one of the WalMart folks in.

    While we’re at it, let’s check on the “qualifications” of Betsy Devos to be Secretary of Education:

    - Billionaire.

    - No education degree.

    - No teaching experience.

    - Never attended public school or university.

    - Never put her own children in public school.

    - Wants to destroy the teachers union.

    - Supports for-profit education, through publicly-funded “vouchers”.

    - Invested $200 million in Christian schools and organizations

    - Wants Christian schools to be funded by taxes.

    -

    But hey, the real clincher: she donated $9.5 million to Trump’s campaign. Her brother, Erik Prince, is the “loyal Bushie” guy who made his fortune from Blackwater and avoided prison for his crimes.

    .

    Remember when the right-wing nuts kept screeching about that “pay for play” crap against Hillary? Hell, their Republican darlings are doing it openly now, with impunity. Why? Well, of course IOKIYAR … and the rest of us can just suck hind tit, with whatever’s left over.

    .

    But be warned, they want it all.

    Just gettin’ started! Lookin’ at his pick for the Treasury Dept Trump is simply gonna throw in his own swamp monsters. Now, some of you twisted right-wing characters were bitching about Hillary Clinton’s ties to Wall Street ’cause she made a coupla speeches for $250k each.

    .

    Totally amateur. Think BIG! Tink YUUUUGE

    .

    Meet Steve Mnuchin, just another billionaire appointed by Trump to be Treasury Secretary. He’s a Goldman Sachs, hedgefund financier, foreclosure machine, and (weirdly) Hollywood film producer; his laat film, Rules Don’t Apply, is apropos.

    .

    He bought failing bank IndyMac for pennies on the dollar during the near-depression in 2008, and then cashed in, via more than 37,000 foreclosures to net a $1.25 billion profit.cash in, at the expense of something like 37,000. Oh, he’s the real deal, all right.

    .

    Trump is “Making America Great” again, one blue chip crony after the next. ‘think Trump’s gonna produce his tax returns, SUCKERS? Give h9im and his robber barons a coupla years to have their way, and it’ll be deja-vous all over again.

    Trump is turning the Washington swamp into the digester at the sewer plant. Almost every appointment is a person out to destroy the agency or department he’s handing them. That isn’t making America great again, it’s heading us toward a third world dictatorship, in large part run by theological nuts who will turn our country into a worse version of Iran…

    [puts on tinfoil hat]@Zuhlamon What if this is the End Game to a deep long term strategy by either the Republicans or the 1%ers? Blockade the government and make it look like nothing gets done because of The Democrats. Then swoop in as an outsider with no questions asked. It’s like the strategy Baron Harkonnen wanted to do in Dune. Squeeze and subjugate the populous. Put in a new guy that treats them nice on the surface and retain power for at least a generation.

    If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s Donald and Trump.

    Mine wast contaminates a lot of waterways, major blowouts aren’t even that rare, EPA doesn’t cause them. BTW, as an environmental coordinator for several decades, I’ve written and reviewed lots of categorical exclusions, environmental assessments, and Environmental Impact Statements under NEPA, going from simplest to most complex reviews.

    Nuking the EPA with nominee will be tragic, even for those investors who might see THEIR OWN KIDS killed by some of those contaminating agents EPA monitors, and industry denies producing.
