the "Blue Apron "harvest box" is yet another giveaway to two-sccops' friends.

think about it--no savings in the SNAP program, because, who is going to pay for building and staffing all those "distribution centers"? his friends, of course. how much is it going to cost to run these things? how many vehicles, how much gas, electricity, water, etc.

they can call it a "trial balloon" or whatever, but my guess is they really intend to do this. wonder which of their rich backers suggested this.

1. Of course it is!

It will be this way for 4 years.

We can make it a game:

“Find Trump’s creditors by matching them with sweet government contracts”! Fun for all ages!


Bonus question...who was Assface paying back by building the wall on the southern border?

6. Republicans are experts at converting tax dollars into campaign contributions and profits...

... for themselves, billionaires, friends and family.

I don't have any doubt that's why we have a feckless money laundering clown for president, kept on a tight leash by his dirtiest secrets.

It's criminal.

7. There won't be dedicated distribution centers

Any company that makes store brand food already has the equipment, the warehouse space, the trucks and the personnel to do this program. Find the store-brand food manufacturer Trump owes the most to, and they'll be the one to get this contract.

8. That is how I see it.

Massive agri-business will capture that market in one day, making things worse for poor people and everyone else. Better to allow people to shop normally and restrict some items like tobacco and alcohol (likely already is done).
