Unless you realize he's trying to "wall off" military spending from his attack on Dems, they certainly do read like that.

Looks like he is worried about November. Good, except that means that the propaganda is going to be coming hard and heavy.

The re-re-re-re-relaunched Trump magazine – available on no good news stands
Quote:
The US president has published similar titles before, including Trump Style and Trump World – but a new incarnation was unveiled last week, bearing the motto ‘Live Luxury, Never Settle’
People may not be completely surprised to learn that previous incarnations of this magazine have ended in the bankruptcy courts. Anyway, young Erik is responsible for this latest attempt.

Why the 40 minute delay? I would have assumed someone there would have his tweets go right to their phone and sound a notification.

Donald Trump Jr.'s wife taken to hospital after getting letter with white powder, police say - ABC News

Quote:
Donald Trump Jr.'s wife was taken to a hospital in New York today after opening a package at her home that contained an unknown white powder, police said.

Vanessa Trump, 40, was being examined at New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center as a precaution, according to cops.
I'm sure Junior will start bleeting that this is Hillary's fault somehow.

The hits, they keep coming:

I bet 10-1 that they will be having some company of some campaign supporter providing these boxes of food. See also: Poor people don't get to decide what to eat, we decide. I also bet that the quality will be absolute shit, but that costs will skyrocket because grafters love to graft. Also, nice infrastructure plan there. Just sell everything to the highest bidder.

One of the biggest and most commonly-expressed Republican wet-dreams is to publicly shame SNAP recipients by forcing them to only buy specially-made, deliberately low-quality and bad-tasting food with large and generic "GOVERNMENT FOOD" labels. I have a feeling this is basically that.

Yeah but isn't "Gubment bad" so why should they get into the food business when they can let people buy their own food and enrich food corps more.

Being a Republican seems so confusing.


Side note, I still call it the Sears Tower.

TIL.

I still call this the Transco Tower:



And this is the Republic Bank Building:



But I've convinced my brain this isn't the Texas Commerce Tower any more:

You wand a rebranding mess. They tore it down, but I lived in Indianapolis when they rebranded the Hoosier Dome to the RCA Dome.

People hated that.

Reading the Wikipedia, it says they "rescued 13 acres of roof" to upcycle. It seems really bizzare to measure a roof in acres.

In this case they don't even get to buy at all. A pre-made box of food will be given to them, no doubt production leftovers, questionable meat in cans and so on. This is pre-WWII era food delivery for the poor.

As I alluded to in my earlier post, it's also wide open for graft, which they have even more wet dreams about. I can easily foresee a situation in which the supplier either doesn't deliver or delivers absolute shit, at an exorbitant price, of course. Think of that woman's company that was supposed to deliver millions of meals to Puerto Rico and only supplied 50k.

Also, I wonder how the nation's largest grocery store chains are going to feel about this.

It's far more than just the airports. They're looking to sell many assets to private entities. Next up, in the near future, Yellowstone for sale. They want to take any and all of our national assets and do this.

They are looting the country, pure and simple. What makes it even more odious is that they WILL continue to take your tax dollars for these entities to turn over to private hands. Guaranteed they will have "markup" fees and such associated with usage, as well. Private enterprise wants big and always growing margins.

The shittiest part is this isn't something thats easily reversible once the fucking scamming assholes are gone. Tax bills, shitty education "reform", laughing stock on climate. All repairable in time once saner heads are in charge.

National assets sold to the highest bidder? Those will never come back. Ever. The government can't just say "sorry, here's your money back, we changed our mind.

Actually, the government could probably seize assets of national resources and treasures, at least. I mean, they seized my great-grandmother's house [and a bunch more] for a stupid civic center. If I were going to buy something like this, I'd either buy it in trust, or I wouldn't because no telling when I'd lose my money.
