1. This makes me sick...

Iím a vet, and I had an older vet who was seeing me in follow up for a medical problem come into the office today. He told me, when I ask how his day was, that he was homeless as a result of his recent hospitalization and his inability to pay for his apartment rent. Heís working with a social worker at the closest VA but everything is full. We got him into temporary lodging in our local town, specifically for vets, but itís only temporary. This guy will likely be on the streets after the first of the year without some miracle from the VA...How much more hell can Trump wreak on this nation?

2. This makes me sick.

This has to change NOW. No more BS about how the "Job Creators" will take all the money and trickle down on you. I think I've had about enough of it. That may sound really funny in the privacy of your home or office, but no more. We are done. That's it.

3. They'll blame Democrats, liberals, and refugees

6 times a day on Faux Noise. The MSM will consider itself evenhanded by only saying it 3 times/day.
