Here's the really stupid part.

Trump's minions act as if they believe anything he said on the campaign trail could be implemented by the executive. He in turn worsened those beliefs by showing his ass with his trite executive order signings.

Apparently, they are not aware we have government with three counter-balancing branches.


All part of the master plan from Koch, Mercer, Peterson, Murdoch, etc.

The ultimate purpose is to demean and degrade any professionalism previously seen in our government, thereby decreasing our people's trust and dependence on government. All a part of "drowning it in a bathtub".

De-fund, degrade, demean, disassociate, then destroy.

What about if they grow a heart and invest that trillion into education.

Oh wait...that would be the wise, compassionate, long-term, minimal return thing to do.

I hear crickets from Wall Street.

Violence and conflict as entertainment is THE problem.

Guns are a convenient accessory to the fact.

No surprise to me.

Koch Industries uses massive amounts of unfinished steel (via other manufacturers) for rail cars and pipe for transporting oil and refined chemicals. Sheet steel is also used to make the pressure and storage vessels in their refineries and liquid product storage yards. The same is true for paper mills.

So, I'm guessing the tariffs would increase their operating and capital investment costs substantially.

Thanks, H2O Man for creating a good review.

Most of us raised in the gentle country simply can't perceive people like tRump existing, much less elected to public office. Therefore, people like us study to try and understand "what the hell is this THING?".

We all know he exhibits symptoms of psychopathy, but his ego goes far beyond that characteristic. I found this article in Raw Story (originally from AlterNet) quite interesting:

The psychological condition that really explains Donald Trumpís twisted worldview

It's all about "wins" and he can't stand to lose or "not win", as proven by his actions. He does not seem to care if an action is or is not the right thing to do, but if it's popular with his base and/or creates new chaos, then it's a win on his brain's scoreboard.

"Demand For Oncologists Skyrockets" will be putting it mildly..

Many tRump administration policies and executive actions will worsen cancer rates in this country.

Promoting coal and weakening the EPA, weakening of worker health and safety regs, poor support for education in general, refusing to hold corporations accountable for anything....this list goes on and on.

All those massive tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy? IMO, rates should have increased instead, and much of the new revenue put into education.

Child marriage violates basic human rights. Period.

All humans should be allowed to mature enough to make sound, rational decisions on their own regarding something that will radically affect their entire adult life.

No culture, religion, government or society should be able to strip any human - male or female - of that basic right.

nuf sed.
