Trump is the "poster boy" for everything that is wrong with America. He represents greed in everything he espouses. His thirst for money is now just a platform for his thirst for power. He shows little regard for people. Take for example, his destroying farm land in Scotland to build a golf course, his berating of people on "The Apprentice", his disparaging remarks, his lawsuit against Bill Maher for joking his mother was an orangutan and now his 500 million suit against Univision for sticking up for their viewers. He thinks his *()(** don't stink. He acts like a tyrant.
Trump is a conceited windbag. In England "trump" means to fart. Ask the people in his condos what they think of him. Ask Carl Icahn.
"We must do away with the specious notion that everyone has to earn a living. Thousands of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspections by inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living"
Richard Buckminster Fuller 1895-1983
I liked him better when he was on "The Jeffersons". The snobbish right wing still will enjoy playing in his country club golf fests.
No problem. With all the lies coming mostly from the right (Repubs) it is easy to be confused.
It really is nobody's business except the couples. I became nauseous when I first saw two men kissing. Then I thought, who cares? People eat deep fried twinkies they don't force me to eat them. I say to all those who disparage LBGT think of something else to waste your life on.
It is not old news. Yesterday, the state senate approved a hike in the gas tax. The property tax on corporations is gone or did I imagine that too?
Repubs in Mich. want to eliminate the state income tax ( that is flat and not indexed to inflation) placing a burden on the middle-class and poor since more of their income goes to essentials and replace it totally with higher gasoline taxes that the rich couldn't care less about.

Since greatest proportion, of the resources of the less wealthy, are spent on the basics...and is non-indexed to inflation any increase in their income affects their purchasing power due to higher tax brackets (due to inflation) other that a raise in real income. If the state does what it wants (read Republican) they will shift the burden of the state income tax from those who should be paying the most to an increase in the state's gasoline taxes and place the burden mainly on the working stiffs who have to drive the most!
Nothing is obvious when the nightly news in mainly sports and weather reports. Bernie Sanders is the answer and right...dump all Republicans IMHO.
Republicans not only want to not to that, they want to eliminate it altogether so that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer as they replace the income tax with higher taxes on gasoline. So, the lower income people including those on fixed income or Social Security see their income stagnant or rising slowly putting them into higher tax brackets the right wing Republicans want to shift more taxes from the rich and corporations to the working stiffs.
If Greece is like a bus, then so is Portugal, Spain and Italy. Germany and the IMF is the gas station. The bus won't go with no gas.
How could they expect a small poorer country, like Greece, use the same monetary system and exchange like the powerhouse of Germany? It's like using a bicycle to compete in the Indy 500 and saying the bicyclist didn't pedal hard enough.
The predatory capitalist system has destroyed southern Europe. Today Puerto Rico is the new target. Reform America. Make the rich pay more. Tax the corporations more. Institute a one party health care in America like the rest of the civilized world.
