It was never about slashing the budget. It’s who can profit from changing the budget. If you can privatize or contract out public works, or even the military (Blackwater) and you can cut out taxes on the corporations overcharging the public, well that’s a win win.
Time for the remake of “Dr. Strangelove, or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb” Sure, the movie cast could have Rex Tillerson as Slim Pickens, Mike Pence could play the crazy SAC general protecting his precious bodily fluids, Alec Baldwin could play President Donald Trump, while Donald Trump plays God.
Pence even had the tweet ready to send by using a photo from 2014, so classy.
Insurance, we have it for vehicles and today we have as many deaths and injuries with guns as vehicles. They could be insured with a rate commensurate with their killing ability, their use, the owners training and ability to safeguard the weapon.
I’m sure the insurance lobbyists could stand up to the NRA if a dollar was involved.
Rex knows he is fourth in line for the presidency. As the investigation closes in on the colluders and starts handing out indictments, Rex may have a shot.
Carl Icahn knew it was time to get out after he netted $500,000,000; yes, a cool half billion for himself. So much for draining the swamp…
“When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”When I see Trump hug a flag on stage, while having dodged the draft, or go to Liberty University to express his love for the Bible, while promoting his own book “Art of the Deal” as a close second, makes me wonder if Sinclair Lewis wasn’t on to something.
After being promised their freedom, many slaves joined the British effort in the war. Key wrote that after the war these slaves should be tortured and killed. The British, who had outlawed the slave trade in 1807, however refused to return the former slaves to the States, taking many to Canada and the rest to Trinidad, where their descendants are called “Mericans”.
When this is done Trump will have the greatest record…..Richard Nixon only had 55 convictions and 15 prison sentences in his administration.
“I may be vile and pernicious / But you can’t look away / I make you think I’m delicious / With the stuff that I say / I’m the best you can get / Have you guessed me yet? / I’m the slime oozin’ out / From your TV set
You will obey me while I lead you / And eat the garbage that I feed you / Until the day that we don’t need you / Don’t go for help . . . no one will heed you / Your mind is totally controlled / It has been stuffed into my mold / And you will do as you are told / Until the rights to you are sold /
That’s right, folks . . .Don’t touch that dial
Well, I am the slime from your video / Oozin’ along on your livin’ room floor"
