Ugh…The shit just keeps piling up around here, and most of the east coast is stuck under a foot of snow…but you know what, we still fight! We shovel, then we fight!
Things Trump Broke Today:
More bad news on the cabinet pick front. Tom Price, insider trader extraordinaire, is now running the health and human services dept. More unqualified robber barons ready to destroy the part of government they control. It seems like the republican motto is “Government doesn’t work, because we broke it!”
Trumps stupid border wall will cost more than 21 billion dollars and take over 3 years to build…meaning it will be just about time to kick him out of office by the time its finished, and we will have to spend billions more to tear it back down…
Trump is signing executive orders to “get tough” on crime that doesn’t exist. The last time a president (Clinton) “got tough” it ended up exploding the prison population, disproportionately targeting minorities, and the private prison industry boomed. Could it be that Trump has gotten a bunch of money from the Prison Industry…yes he has.
Apparently you can’t go on TV and tell people to buy the presidents daughters stuff, so when you get in trouble for that what does Trump do? He complains that the law was followed. Petty lawless thugs are running this country.
Trumps owns stock in pipeline construction companies (their pipelines leak regularly). His profits are worth more than your drinking water. Impeachment now!
Fascism and oligarchy go hand in hand. Now CEO’s or airlines are lobbying Trump to use government power to black their business competition…
We are one large Terror attack away from Trump seizing total power. Think it couldn’t happen? Think back to all the shit George W. got away with after 9/11. George W. almost looks quaint in his corruption compared to Trump. We must not allow our freedoms to be taken away all because we are afraid. More people die of bee strings every year than have been killed by foreign terrorist over the last decade, we must not allow fear to win the day!
Other countries are already starting to welcome our best and brightest. I don’t blame them, if they can’t find work in this anti-science environment maybe they can do some good in another country. What that does mean is that Trumps dark ages views on science are going to hurt the American Economy.
Trumps national security adviser was meeting with the Russians before Trump was even elected…its potentially illegal to talk to foreign governments (especially one that was trying to influence the election) before you are actually given the job. At the very least it raises serious conflict of interest questions, at the worst it could be treason.
This is why its so important to call a lie a lie. Trumps supports are overwhelmingly in agreement that the “bowling green massacre” (which didn’t happen by the way) is why we need an immigrant ban.
Lies that are used for political gain are called propaganda. Trump and his cadre of idiots are propagandists, they are lying so they can cheat and steal and destroy.
