Re: Trump's America

I think from another article that was linked (maybe the one about the Sam's Club closings), employees will get smaller bonuses if they've not been on the job as long, for an average of ~$190 per employee

This is talking about on the civil side of the ledger. The families of victims of police shootings wouldn’t be able to sue.

****ing pathetic the way these people cape up for a pedophile. good riddance imo
Second one in as many months, right? Didn't one from KY eat it for the same reason last month?

Good riddance. I am staunchly against suicide for the mentally ill, but for someone who diddles kids and then hides behind their little brown book with the lower case t on it, I can only wish the **** in there was true so these guys could get poked in the ******* by Satan for eternity.

I hope it ****ing hurt.

It was always a scam anyway - but it'll be interesting to see how they spin it.

They don't have to spin it. It will never be reported on FOX, so the deplorable will never know about it. They'll see his tweets show up on FOX that say "I'm saving all the jobs, so bigly, the best jobs." And say, see... he's saving jobs. Loliberals.

Pretty good 40 minute documentary on what it's like in a Trumpkin town. Also a written article if you prefer reading to viewing.

FWIW at least this isn't another article about the rust belt.

I read about half of it. Lol the Mexican immigrant lady who supports trump but prays every night he doesn't deport her. I constantly underestimate the mental gymnastics some people are capable above.

Re: Trump's America



Rick Perry hugged a coal baron. This photographer got the picture. Then he was placed on leave.
Energy Department photographer Simon Edelman is seeking whistleblower protection after the department placed him on administrative leave and seized personal belongings he kept at the office.

In a Jan 4. complaint, Edelman, the department’s chief creative officer, said that he had given official photos to The Washington Post and In These Times magazine of a March 29 meeting between coal mining executive Robert Murray and Energy Secretary Rick Perry. The photos show the two men hugging and discussing an “action plan” for overhauling federal energy regulations.

Edelman said in the complaint filed with the department’s inspector general that he felt there was something improper about the close similarity between Perry’s proposed changes to electricity regulations to prop up coal and nuclear plants in September and the plan Murray presented months earlier, and decided to make the photos available to both publications.
i'm sure rick just wanted to hug the guy because they're so close because they think so similarly, about energy regulation. they've always been on the same page, he's definitely not overwhelmed with gratitude for bribes or corruption offered in exchange for giving this coal magnate exactly what he wants

then again, if i spent my entire political career bootlicking billionaires hoping to get some scraps thrown my way in the form of an offshore retirement fund, and i finally do, i'd probably be happy enough to hug a man

Yowza. Sounds credible. Things aren't adding up. The autopsy is being burried. Southern border wall would have prevented this, along with more bump stocks in the hands of citizens.

Re: Trump's America

The weird thing about that pictures is that the one old dude seems to have cloned himself 6 times. They even all have the same "white old racist explains the world to you" pose with the arms crossed and everything. Do you think after the CNN dude got to the 5th old white proclaiming that he doesn't care about Russia, he doesn't always like what Trump says on Twitter but he's happy Trump is finally draining the swamp and saying what's on his mind, the CNN dude started to get suspicious this was rigged?

The chutzpah to complain about your country being taken away from you when every single in-depth piece in every god damn media outlet in the country is still ****ing about you.

Re: Trump's America

Those focus groups are really freak shows now. Nobody cares to understand them and shouldn't care to. CNN now puts them on and goes, "Look how racist these idiots are. Aren't they racist?"

It's a waste of time to talk to Trump supporters.
