Yes, they could get it back through eminent domain but the question is would they. For every single thing they sold during this fire sale? There is also the problem when they get it back it most probably will not be in the same condition as it was when they sold it, almost a certainly for parks and such.

WTF donnie? You might want to, oh, ask before spouting an easily provable lie. It is not like they are going to build a detroit plant they had not scheduled to construct just to make you look good.

Yeah, it's interesting that the party that always hated Russia and always told us how bad it was there due to rationing of food seems to now love Russia and rationing.

I noted also that their "savings" do NOT include transportation costs, which alongside warehousing would be enormous in comparison to just putting money on someone's EBT card every month.

It has to be about the potential for stealing from taxpayers and punishing poor people by not allowing them to pick their own food.

Exactly, their #1 reason for doing this is to punish the people that use the program. The potential for skimming money off the top is a happy accident. They do not care about efficiency since it is not their money.

It's obviously not about cost..Grocery stores average a 1% profit margin.

This.

I am literally just an impending pink slip away from needing food stamps myself. I know I've said this elsewhere in this forum, but Trump and all his cronies can go die in a fucking fire.

It's much the same mindset at the UK's pre-20th century 'workhouses' I suspect.

MY opinion he is just a dumb front man for the party. He can barely read a one page document do you think he has read or even comprehends the mass of paperwork that goes into the government. His party will not get rid of him because he is signing and doing exactly what they and their backers want. I actually feel a little sorry for him or NOT. I am sure all the people that have have filled Government positions ie Devost also been the wishes of the party more than Trump.

He wants to make 'MERIKA great again by returning us to the Victorian era.

1. Return to Coal
2. Hate all immigrants.

Next we can expect workhouses "for the lazy" and child labor via orphanariums.

Maybe we can borrow his time machine and fix a few things? If we can not undo the 2016 selection I call dibs on telling my ancestors not to sail over here. Of course if I do not immediately disappear that will mean the great grandfather who was born elsewhere would not be around to save lives in WW2 and I get that on my conscience.

I can't tell my dad's ancestors not to come over, my German is practically non-existent, and even if I learned textbook, it problably wouldn't do much good since I think they were Swabian, before their city got taken by French, which is why they left [Metz].

My mom's ancestors, while closer in time to me, well, her dad's parents were educated, so probably spoke English before coming over, but her mom's parents were peasants and I don't speak -any- Slavic.

You could study with a Swiss Amish group (mostly in Indiana). Their dialect is probably the closest you could find to 19th century Swabian in the US.

Might be difficult, though.... I'm in florida. Actually, middle Pennsylvania Amish might speak close to it too, since that's where my dad and all his family is from, since before the revolutionary war.

ETA: My dad wasn't amish though.... far as I know, none of his family was.

There's a big Pennsylvania Dutch (Deutsch/Deitsch) community in PA, they're not all Amish, but mostly Lutheran and Mennonite. That's where my dad's half of the family was, they came over in the 1600's fleeing the 30-year war.

Further to this, even though to Anglo ears, a Dutch and a German accent sound a lot alike, confuse a Dutchman with a German and you're liable to get a bicycle wrapped around your head.
