Children of trump are the same as children of the kim-il-suk in north korea

"A beautiful virtuous angle." Fuck you. And that 10 year old they force to wear a suit and tie all the time will be a serial killer someday.

Linchpin of the neoliberal/libertarian economic plan

that has been incrementally implemented since the Powell Memo was written (circa 1970) and the "Chicago Boys" school of economic theory advocated by Milton Friedman was established and shown to be workable in Chile and Argentina. Today, the long-entrenched think-tanks like Heritage Foundation and others established by the Kock brothers, Adolph Coors, Richard Scaife, and others since that time provide funding and political support as well.

Because it is lifted directly from "Mein Kampf" and other Hitler/Nazi pronouncements

Even if you've never read it, some things are instinctive.

Of course that is what trump wants

He wants revenge on the whole wold and doesn't care how he gets it. That is his game, period. He and his whole filthy family fuck people. That is who they are, that is what they do, and that is all they do.

Good for the governor of Pennsylvania

Why has this ever been something that the state (any state or any government) is even concerned with. What have reproductive rights do to with running a country? It's nobody's business but the persons involved.
