    • Killing Herd Animals
      One of the great crimes and tragedies of our world is how we treat the animals we eat (or whose milk or eggs or other products we eat and use.) Factory farming keeps them in tiny enclosures, feeds them monotonous foods, and then when they’re slaughtered it’s a terrible experience: they’re terrified and die in […]

May I suggest “Trickled On”?

Anyone here remember the Laffer Curve? You know the “trickle down” economics beautiful theory destroyed by ugly facts? The one where we cut taxes on corporations and the wealthy and they, in turn, invest it in good paying jobs for Americans instead of following their instincts, taking the money and running (yachting, private jetting) as fast as they can?

Well, it’s back.

That’s what Trump’s tax “reform” package is all about. Greg Sargent at WaPo’s Plum Line says it will be the end of Trump’s economic populism.

Not necessarily. There’s a lot to like here for the mindlessly vindictive Trump supporter who thinks coastal elites are trying to ram the nanny state down their throats and force them to gay marry right before surrendering their guns and marching them off for mandatory abortions. For one thing, if reports are true about the reform package curtailing the mortgage deduction and state tax deductions, it’s going to slam California, NJ, NY, MA the hardest. Sure it will cause some Trump voters pain but the howls of rage from the libtards will be like choirs of heavenly angels to their ears.


The housing market will likely crash somewhat so sell your house now to the first sucker you find. I’d look for them at the nearest Trump Rally.

    Naturally, when it comes to voting, we in Texas are accustomed to discerning that fine hair’s-breadth worth of difference that makes one hopeless dipstick slightly less awful than the other. But it does raise the question: Why bother? Oh, it’s just that your life is at stake.

    Like the other regulars here, I think there was far more than a hair’s-breadth of difference between HRC and the Siberian Candidate, but what she said would have applied even if the Purity Putzes had been right about Hillary.

  2. Joe Cannon on how Covfefe has made it easier for enemies of democracy to hack our election systems and other systems. 😡

    Trump the Saboteur

  3. Where is that fucking idiot who was calling me names down couple of posts? Does she know what is going on at Arkema plant in Crosby? Did she know Abbott stopped giving tier II reports on chemical inventory in plants like that? Does she know that those harmful chemicals could have been neutralized but the company didn’t do that? Does that fucking idiot know what trump has done with his EPA and all the regulations? I hope that and other fucking low IQ brigade are safe from that chemical plant which is about to explode any day now because we need them to vote for the buffoon again in 2020, (yeah, that was sarcasm).

  4. Can we start calling Trump’s favorite child “Lyin’ Ivanka”, now?
