So what should I call him?

Is it:

Adolf Trump?

Donald Stalin?

Satan - that's out, DeSatanist has already co-opped that one.

Right Wing Fundamentalists' alternative to God?

Donald the Hun?

The Emperor who always Strikes Back?

Donald Trumped? Not yet but hopefully

Fate Worse Than Death?

So many choices. So much evil.

Are you trying to cheat that poor duck?

That's not very nice. What did he ever do to you? Are you Quacked up?

Oops! Never mind. Wrong Donald.

Can I have some of that action?

Was it Sunday? Darn, I thought those good Fundamentalist folk didn't

do anything on Sunday except thank their false Idol Donald the Magnificent at church. So I was expecting to show up Tuesday, which the Fringe said was False Election Day.

Sniff! And here I thought "what a Deal! I could have bought that boat"

then realized my zillions were in bitcoin with Three Arrows Capital!

Oh, well! All my money is now in Russian Rubles and Trump's re-election campaign. I'll soon make back the zillions.

Oh, the horror! The Shame! Those evil FBI agents! What they did:

"they even broke into my safe." "My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents," he said in a statement.

How could they be so nasty?

"After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate," Trump said

Isn't that just evil? And after he was SO COOPERATIVE! We all know how many times he told his lawyers to give the government everything they asked for because he nothing to hide.

Well, nothing except
Being a traitor to his party, the American people, his country and the Constitution
Violating the Constitution and Oath of Office
Criminal actions
Sexual Predator
Attacking Secret Service agents
Instigating a riot
Defrauding banks and tax authorities
Using the government for personal gain
Sleazy businessman
Egotistic Maniac

and those are his GOOD points.

Good things come to nice guys. And this was SO GOOD!

I'm not so sure Eli Lilly is as good as some think

They don't say they are moving any operations to another state

They don't say they will not hire more employees in Indiana

They are only "planning" their growth outside Indiana, not necessarily actually doing it.

They gain a lot from Republicans who believe it's okay for them to rip off Americans on drug pricing and a few bucks spent on campaigns for those Republican candidates along with paying for "issue ads" that don't "directly contribute" to those same Republicans. The same sleazes they elected now vote against ONE of their professed interests.

They don't say anything about right and wrong - just that it will make it hard for them to hire and retain some people (i.e. women who care about the issue). Not all women support that view as witnessed by the women in power who don't or who won't speak against their fellow right wingers.

The question is whether their stated concern is real or just a temporary thing until the next election or even possibly being undermined by private statements that "we really don't believe that but it makes for good political capital so don't worry about our support of the right".

I must be from Missouri
